Hint on Futrue Themes in Previous Sentai

It hasn't happened a lot but sometimes there is a trend to have a hint to the theme of the next following Sentai theme in the Super Sentai. I am not talking about future Sentai series, but one after another.

I was reminded that Ryta of Jetman (1991) was sent to the past by a Mammoth monster to prehistoric times, which was used the exact next year for Zyuranger (1992). In the above picture, he met a cavegirl that liked him. He was Yellow Owl.

In Gaoranger (2001), they fought a Ninja who had his own shadow rangers to fight the heroes, many feel this was Toei testing out the ninja work for Hurricanger (2002), which follow afterwards. This footage was used for Power Rangers and had the same feeling.

In Go-Onger (2008), they often got visitors from the Samurai World and the movie exclusively featured the Samurai World. Three Engines formed the Dai Shogun, which was like a samurai. This theme was used in the next, Shinkenger (2009). Dai Shogun footage was not used for RPM. funny enough PRWF and PRNS were transfer of Disney to Saban and RPM and PRS are once again transfer of ownership.

In Goseiger (2010), the Seaick Gosei Great has a pirate look, and now the new theme in 2011 is Gokaiger. Funny enough, both series were used for Megaforce (2013-2014) and while the pirate theme isn't being referenced on the show, we see Sea Gosei Great Megazord during the second season Super Megaforce that uses mostly Gokaiger footage.

Sentai franchise is indeed testing something...for example many fan dislike the "mouth" of Tensou Sentai Goseiger so I think they get this message very well too...so no more mouth for Goukaiger...for me they are trying to make sentai better every year...they are indeed learning...plus maybe "pirate" look monster like one in Shinkenger might be connected to Goukaiger, the monster I mean is Gozunagumo in episode 23 and 24 of Shinkenger...I hope Henshin Grid will make a survey on pirates monster in the past sentai series...maybe this is also a hint?i12

Wasn't there a Jetman episode where somebody got sent back to prehistory? Zyuranger hint.

And when DaiVoyager got that power up in Boukenger vs Super Sentai, the upgrades seem to resemble Gekiranger's flame logo.

oh that is true.

I think it's just coincidence. Even if if was very obvious like the samurai thing, we wouldn't notice it... I bet this means that when we see a castle in Goukaiger mid age theme speculations will appear evrywhere...

Anyway, I think this post was very crative, but I don't really think it gives any kind of advice...
