Relationship in Turboranger

Hi, everyone. Today, I would like to talk about my favorite relationships in Turboranger. Needless to say, my absolute favorite relationship is that of Youhei and Haruna. This relationship may not actually happen in the series, but I do ship them, so I will include it here.

  • Youhei and Haruna

As I said, I do ship them, and I want them to end up together. I have written about Youhei’s and Haruna’s relationship many times, so I will not go into detail here, but it is still worth mentioning that this is my number one favorite relationship in Turboranger.


  • Youhei and Shunsuke

I am not going to go into detail for this one either, because I wrote about the friendship between Youhei and Shunsuke before, but I do want to mention that I love their friendship.


  • Dr. Dazai and Seelon

This relationship may sound strange, because one of them is an old inventor, while the other is a tiny fairy, but I still think the relationship between Dr. Dazai and Seelon is very sweet. I do not know how they met each other for the first time (they should have made an extra story about this), but we know that Dr. Dazai cares about Seelon so much that he even makes a toy castle filled with furniture for Seelon to live in. He even agrees to work together with Seelon and make all the Turborangers’ vehicles and weapons, despite his inability to see Seelon with naked eyes. If I were him, I would probably think twice before I get involved in this dangerous war.

I will describe the relationship between Dr. Dazai and Seelon as something special. It is not quite a relationship between father and daughter, but it is pretty close. We can also say that they are good friends and close companions. I will probably talk about their relationship more in the future, because it gets quite lengthy, and there are still more things I want to talk about them.

  • Shunsuke and Yumi

Shunsuke is Yumi’s senior, and Yumi is Shunsuke’s junior. It seems that Shunsuke finds Yumi by accident, when he listens to Yumi’s flute during her practice. The relationship between them does not continue in the series, sadly, but I sure hope that Shunsuke will end up with Yumi in the future, because I think they will make a cute couple.

  • Daisuke and Kuro

The relationship between owner and his pet. I love animals, so I have to mention this relationship at least once, and in Turboranger, this relationship is seen the most between Daisuke and Kuro. Even though they only appear in one episode, from this episode alone, we can tell how much Daisuke cares about Kuro. He is very upset when Kuro gets hypnotized, and he is the one who breaks Kuro’s spell. I am sure that Kuro is also happy to have Daisuke as his owner.


  • Kashim and Kirika’s mother

As I mentioned previously, “Beauty and the Beast” is probably the most romantic fairy tale ever made, because it is not often that we can see a beautiful woman falling in love with a “beast,” and this is exactly the case here. Remember, Kashim is actually Kimen Boma, but Kirika’s mother can see beyond that and fall in love with him anyway. How romantic is that?


So, those are my favorite relationships in Turboranger. If I miss any, I will update this article in the future. I did not mention the relationships between Dr. Dazai and Ms. Yamaguchi, Yamimaru and Kirika, or Jinba and Jamin on purpose, because these are not my favorite relationships. Nonetheless, I might talk about them in different articles someday.

Favorite Turborangers

Hi, everyone. Today, I am going to rank my favorite Turborangers from top to bottom. It is about time, I guess. I know it is kind of obvious that my favorites are Youhei and Haruna, because I talk about them most of the times, but what about the rest? Well, we are going to discuss it today.

Before I get to the list, however, there are two things I would like to point out. First, everyone has their own favorite and opinion, so please respect it. My favorite may not be your favorite, and your favorite may not be mine, and it is okay. Second, I would like to point out that I do NOT hate any ranger in Turborangers, but since this is a rank, someone needs to be on the bottom, and it cannot be helped. Nonetheless, I do NOT hate the one on the bottom. Being on the bottom means that he is my least favorite, but it does not mean that I hate him.

Please bear those two things in mind as I reveal my list now:

Morikawa Haruna – Pink Turbo


Yes, Haruna is my absolute favorite. You may have thought that I love Youhei the most, and I can understand that. Actually, I am torn choosing between Haruna and Youhei, because they both are my favorites, and I love them equally, but if I have to pick one, I will choose Haruna, because she is the only girl, and I am a girl, so it is kind of obvious. Every girl likes to have a heroine they can look up to, and I am not an exception. For that reason, I will have to give Haruna the first spot.

Hama Youhei – Blue Turbo


Again, it is obvious that I love Youhei as much as I love Haruna. These two characters are probably the main reason why I love Turboranger the series altogether. Take these two characters out of the series, and I would probably stop watching it. Youhei is just simply handsome and charming, yet funny and unpredictable at the same time.

Hino Shunsuke – Yellow Turbo


It is not difficult for me to put Shunsuke right after Youhei, because I love his friendship with Youhei. I wrote an article about them here if you want to check it out. Obviously, I do not like Shunsuke as much as I like Haruna and Youhei, but he is a fine character. He is one of those characters that you cannot hate no matter what, but he is not attractive enough to charm me and take the first spot. He is funny, though, and I really like Shunsuke that way.

Yamagata Daichi – Black Turbo


Yamagata Daichi is not a “stand out” type of character. I think among the five rangers, Daichi is the coolest, calmest, and most “hidden” somehow. To be honest, until a few years ago, Daichi was still my least favorite ranger among the five Turborangers. However, as I watched the series again and again, his character had started to grow in me, and now, he has earned the fourth spot. He is pretty much the same as Shunsuke when it comes to being a character I cannot hate.

Honoo Riki – Red Turbo


To be honest, I used to like Riki so much that he became my favorite character among all. I even played Riki when my friends and I played a “Turborangers make believe” game back in the elementary school. However, as time goes by, I have come to like Riki less and less. Nonetheless, I would like to point out, again, that I do NOT hate him by all means. I like all the five rangers, and I like Riki as well. He is a good leader, and Turboranger would not be complete without his presence. It just happens that he is my least favorite among the five rangers.

Another point I would like to point out is that this list is not permanent, which means, I might change my mind in the future. Today, Riki is my least favorite, but tomorrow, he might be my first, second, third, or fourth favorite. Nothing is definite, and if I do change my mind in the future, I will update this list again.

So, that is my list of my favorite Turborangers. What about you?

Wish List

Hi, everyone. For today’s article, I will put my Turboranger wish list here. This is the list of the items I have been looking for, but have not got a chance to own them yet. I hope I will be able to get them someday, though.

1. Turboranger casts’ signatures

The actor of Red Turbo, Sato Kenta, posted this picture on his official Twitter a while ago. This looks like a phone card or a pocket calendar with all the casts of Turboranger’s signatures on it.


To be honest, I just want the five rangers’ signatures. It does not have to be specifically written on a phone card. It can be a plain paper, I do not care. The bottom line is, I want all the five rangers’ signatures. Of course, it would be nice if I could get their signatures on their pictures, but as long as I have their signatures, I would be fine with just a white paper.

It would be nice, however, if I could get their signature personally. Meaning, I meet them in person and get their signature right from their hands, but I do not know when I will be able to meet them, if ever. It is my dream, though, to meet the five Turborangers, so I hope my dream will come true someday.

2. Deluxe Magazine Ore, June 1987

A magazine featuring the cast of Pink Turbo, Kinohara Yoshiko, when she was 18-year-old. If you know me, you will know how much I love Morikawa Haruna, a.k.a. Pink Turbo, and I would love to have all the magazines/books/articles featuring her. The article featured in this magazine has actually been shared online, but it would be nice to have the actual copy of the magazine.


3. Turboranger DVD

The DVD was actually released back in 2012, and yes, I know, it is long overdue. However, the price of the DVD is extremely expensive, and I cannot justify the price. I am still waiting for a more affordable one, but sadly, the cheapest I have found so far is still quite expensive. Among the five volumes, I only want volume 4 the most, because it contains an article featuring Sato Kenta, Asakura Keiya (Blue Turbo), and Katagiri Jun’ichiro (Yellow Turbo). If I could have them all someday, I would, but if I cannot, I would be happy with owning volume 4 alone.


4. Tokusatsu Idol SFX Heroines Part 3

A magazine featuring a number of tokusatsu heroines. I am only interested in Kinohara Yoshiko, a.k.a Pink Turbo, obviously, but I would not mind buying the whole magazine.

So, that is my wish list. Any information about them would really be appreciated.

Most Favorite Episodes

Hi, everyone. Today, I would like to discuss five of my absolute favorite Turboranger episodes. Needless to say, all the five episodes I choose are focused on either Youhei or Haruna, because they are my favorite rangers. However, before we get to it, I just want to remind you that I wrote similar articles years ago, when I talked about my favorite Super Sentai heroines and Super Sentai heroes. You are welcome to check them out if you want to know which heroines and heroes are my favorites.

Anyway, here are my top five favorite episodes:

1. Episode 19 – “Boma Tribe Haruna”

This episode is a definite no-brainer. I absolutely love this episode, and I have watched it countless times. It is not even exaggerating to say that this episode is the episode I watch most often. You may have also noticed that I use this episode a lot as an example in my previous articles. I mean, how could I not love it? This episode tells a story of Youhei and Haruna wrapped in one. Sure, Youhei only lies in bed most of the time, but still, the relationship between Youhei and Haruna is very sweet here, and as one of those who ship them, it is impossible for me to not love this episode. Having said that, this episode has easily landed on my top five favorites, and it has even earned the top spot.


2. Episode 15 – “Fire the V-Turbo Bazooka”

The second episode I love. Story wise, I am not really interested in it, but one little scene I noticed from this episode has stolen my heart, and for that reason, I could easily put this episode very high up on the list. What scene? It is the one when the five rangers cannot transform, and Youhei holds Haruna’s hand as they run away from Yamimaru and Kobu Boma. Youhei could easily leave Haruna behind and run with the other guys, but he does not. Rather, he grabs Haruna’s hand and runs alongside her, so she will not get left behind. This scene may be small, and it is not easy to notice (as I also missed it the first time I watched it), but as shipper of Youhei and Haruna, this little scene means a lot to me. For that reason, this episode has easily earned the second spot.

3. Episode 39 – “Walk! Child of Shikoku”

Again, another Youhei-centered episode. But what makes me love this episode is not simply because Youhei is the main character here. I like this episode, because in here, we can see Youhei’s talent in drawing. It is nice to see a little detail like this throughout the series. Unfortunately, among the five rangers, only Youhei’s talent and hobby get exposed. Anyway, another reason I love this episode is because I like to draw children book like Youhei, and it is nice to see that my favorite character has the same hobby as mine.

4. Episode 16 – “The Teacher Who Became a Child”

Yet another Youhei-centered episode. Sorry, I just like Youhei so much that I cannot get enough of him. It is a pity that the Turboranger episodes have to be divided equally among the five rangers. I wish we could have all the episodes centered in Youhei and Haruna alone, but that would not be fair for the other rangers and their fans, I guess. Anyway, I do not like the fact that the rangers’ teacher, Ms. Yamaguchi, is the main character here, but I do like the scene when Youhei teases Haruna.


5. Episode 45 – “Ragorn’s Counterattack”

The reason is simple. This is a Haruna-centered episode, and there are two scenes that win my heart here. First, the moment Haruna plays with the baby rabbits, and second, the moment Youhei steals the bracelet from Haruna’s hand. I mean, come on, the scene when Haruna plays with the rabbits is just too cute, and the scene when Youhei steals the bracelet from Haruna is just so sweet. This episode may not be my first favorite, but it has at least landed on the top five.



So, that is all for today. As you can see, all the episodes I love are either focused on Youhei or Haruna, but it is what it is. I wonder what your favorite episodes are? Anyway, thank you for visiting, and see you again next time!

Mistakes of Violent Demon Tribes

Hi, everyone. Today, I would like to switch gear and talk about the villain instead of the hero. Even though it is obvious that a hero will always win in super hero movies, I still think that a villain could overcome the hero if they were smarter and more strategic. Turboranger is not an exception. Throughout the series, I have found some mistakes that cost the villain big time. All these failures could easily be avoided if their strategy was well thought. Anyway, here are some mistakes they make that I have found thus far:

-) Unlike Megaranger, the villains in Turboranger never attack the five rangers at night, when they were fast asleep. In Megaranger, there is at least one episode when the heroes have to wake up at night, and they even come to their base in their pajamas. Moreover, apart from episode 1, the villains in Turboranger never attack them during their school period. Attacking the opponent when they are least expected is one of the best strategies, but the Violent Demon Tribes have never done this throughout the whole series. Instead of surprise-attacking the five rangers when they are sleeping or studying, the Violent Demon Tribes always wait for them until they finish their school, and they attack them during the day. With this kind of attitude, it is not a surprise that they are never able to defeat Turborangers.

-) Lack of friendship. It seems that the Violent Demon Tribes only group themselves together, because they have the same goal, that is, to defeat Turborangers and rule the world. However, flocking themselves together does not mean that they are friends to each other. Instead, they will use any means necessary to fulfill their goal, even if it means that they have to betray their own “friend” or use them as a “tool.” In this case, Zuluten has often become a victim. Not only does he become a ride for Jamin, but he also becomes a slave for Yamimaru and Kirika.

Moreover, we have seen so many betrayals in the Violent Demon Tribes. Take Yamimaru for example. He only serves Lagorn as part of his plan. On the other hand, Lagorn only treats his subjects as pawns. The moment they prove themselves useless, Lagorn will not hesitate to punish them or even eliminate them. In my opinion, this is not a healthy relationship. Once your team is divided, you will never win. No matter how strong they are, if they do not work together, they will always lose. To be honest, I can say that the Violent Demon Tribes are not necessarily weak. If they work together, I am sure Turboranger will have a hard time fighting them and winning from them. Unfortunately, the Violent Demon Tribes are too selfish, and they do not work together. This has cost them their victory throughout the whole series.


-) The villains in Turboranger are too naive and foolish, especially Zuluten. If you have decided that you are going to be a villain, you will have to be ready to be mean, strict, violent, and “rotten to the core.” If you are still being nice, naive, and foolish like Zuluten, you do not have the requirement to be a true villain. Consider episode 19 for example. When Haruna gets stung by Modoku Boma and begs Zuluten for the antidote, he runs toward her without any suspicion and gives the antidote to her without hesitating at all. If I were Zuluten, I would let Haruna die without mercy. If Haruna died, Youhei would also die, and defeating the rest of Turborangers would be a piece of cake. Zuluten was very close to winning the battle here, but due to his naivity, Turboranger had once again obtained the victory.


Another naive villain is Dororo Boma (episode 16). He easily tells Misa concerning his magatama secret, even though he knows that Misa has his blue magatama. Had he not done this, Misa would not have told Youhei about it, and Ms. Yamaguchi would not have returned to her original form. This would have devastated Turborangers, and in the end, it would have been easy for the Violent Demon Tribes to destroy the five rangers. Again, his naivity costs him his victory. Dororo Boma is not just naive, but he is also a big mouth.

That is all for today. I am sure there are still more mistakes made by the Violent Demon Tribes along the way, but I will update this article in the future. Thank you for visiting and see you again!

Youhei and Haruna III

Hi, everyone. It has been a while. Today, I want to talk more about Youhei and Haruna. This is yet another sequel to my previous articles, Youhei and Haruna and Youhei and Haruna II. However, for this article, instead of talking about why Youhei and Haruna are suitable for each other, I want to talk about those moments in the series when Youhei does not seem to care about Haruna. In short, it is the moments when he teases her, makes fun of her, or laughs at her. We can also say that these moments are the opposite of the previous articles, and these may be the reason why people ship Haruna with Riki instead of Youhei. However, even with these “unfavorable” moments, I still believe that Youhei cares about Haruna, and he is still my number one choice to end up with her.

Now, let us see those moments in details:

-) When Youhei asks Haruna about her first love, but he cuts her out before she has a chance to answer him, makes fun of her, saying that she has never fallen in love in her life, and laughs at her (episode 16). It is no secret that Youhei is a joker and a teaser, so Haruna is not his only victim, but I still do not like it anytime Youhei does this to Haruna. On the other hand, I feel like teasing is one way to show how much you care about someone. If Youhei acted like a gentleman all the time, that would make me scared instead. I think being a teaser is part of Youhei, and that is what makes him unique. Even after he dates and/or marries Haruna, I still want him to tease her once in a while.


-) When Youhei laughs at Haruna as she talks to a dog (episode 24). To be honest, I do not like this scene either. I think this episode is one of the episodes that I watch least often, just because I hate it anytime Youhei laughs at Haruna, especially when it comes to animals, because like Haruna, I am also an animal lover, and I also believe that dogs can understand people. It is a good thing, however, that Youhei learns from his mistake in the end. I believe that by the time this episode is over, Youhei has changed his mind, and he too, has finally believed that dogs can understand people. Not everyone has to share the same opinion, though, so I respect Youhei’s opinion, which is why I still ship him with Haruna, despite of this episode. Besides, if Youhei finally dates/marries Haruna, they may have a puppy together, and then, he can learn the value of animals in his life.


-) When Youhei laughs at Haruna as her hair gets messed up on Seelon’s birthday (episode 41). This is the scene I hate the most, and honestly, anytime I watch this episode, I will skip this scene, because Youhei is way too mean and insensitive here. I know that Youhei is not the only one who laughs at Haruna, but he is the one who laughs the loudest. However, just because someone is a couple, it does not mean that they cannot laugh at each other. On the other hand, if someone laughs at their partner, it may mean that they are comfortable with each other that they can even laugh at them without making their partner angry or offended. Similarly, Haruna is not offended with Youhei at all here. Instead of being offended concerning her hair, she gets angry because Youhei asks Seelon’s age without any consideration. This means that Youhei and Haruna are very comfortable with each other that Haruna does not even mind being teased/laughed at by Youhei. She must realize that no matter how insensitive Youhei is, he still cares about her so much that he is even willing to risk his life for her (episode 19).


So, that is all for today. I am sure I still have plenty more to talk about Youhei and Haruna, but we will save it for another day. See you again!

Ship in Turboranger

Hi, everyone. Today, I would like to talk about ship in Turboranger. Who is your favorite ship? With whom do you ship Haruna? With whom do you ship the guys if it is not Haruna? Perhaps, you fancy Youhei and Rin together? Or Youhei and Risa? That is a good one! At any rate, since “romance” is not the main theme in Turboranger, we all have the freedom to make our own ship, but for this article, I want to focus on whom I will ship Haruna with.

As we all know, the most popular ship for Haruna is either Haruna-Riki or Haruna-Youhei. I have never seen anyone pair Haruna with Daichi or Shunsuke before. Or maybe I have, but it is very rare that I have forgotten about it. Personally, however, I like to ship Haruna with Youhei, and if you know me, I am sure you already know about this. If, by any means, Haruna does not end up with Youhei, my second option will be Haruna and Daichi. Yes, you heard me. I do not ship Haruna and Riki. I never have, and I do not think that I ever will. To me, Riki is not the right person for Haruna, and I will explain it in the future. For now, I will explain why I want Haruna to be with either Youhei or Daichi, but since this article is going to be long, I might have to divide this article into several parts. For today, I am going to focus on Haruna-Youhei.


Anyway, as you may have noticed, I already wrote about Youhei and Haruna before (part 1, part 2), so today, I am just going to expand it a little more. As I am writing this article, however, it seems that I have got an idea for another Youhei and Haruna article, so please look forward to it.


Concerning Haruna and Youhei ship, I think episode 19 explains it all. Among the four rangers, only Youhei is willing to lose his life to protect Haruna. I do not think we need a better explanation than this. If Youhei did not love Haruna or care about her so much, why would he do what he did? Look at Youhei. He is a joker, a class clown, and a teaser. Anytime he has an opportunity to tease Haruna, he will. It may seem impossible for someone like Youhei to actually sacrifice himself for someone, but he did, and that someone is Haruna. Ever since I watched this episode, I know Youhei is the one I want to end up with Haruna, and this feeling has not changed until now. Besides, as I mentioned earlier, Youhei is a joker and the class clown, while Haruna is the student body president. They are completely the opposite, which means, they can complete each other.


This is all for today. I will talk about Haruna-Daichi, Haruna-Riki, and Haruna-Shunsuke in the future (no particular order here), but I might insert some different articles in between. All will depend on my mood, heheh.

Anyway, thank you for visiting and see you again!

Female Empowerment in Turboranger

Hi, everyone. Today, I want to focus on female empowerment in Turboranger. While female empowerment is being encouraged these days, this was definitely a rare case back then, especially in 1989 Japan, when Turboranger was aired. Consider all the Super Sentai series that were aired before and after Turboranger. Most of them still treated women like a “trophy,” and their role as a female was often overshadowed by the guys. However, in Turboranger, the female roles, especially that of Haruna, is very strong and she is definitely not overshadowed by the guys, even though she is the only female in the team.

These are some points I would like to emphasize to strengthen my point:

-) Haruna is not just a man’s “trophy.” Even though she has a beautiful physical appearance, she does not have a boyfriend or love interest (episode 12). Moreover, Haruna does not “disguise” herself as often as other female sentais, such as Goggle Pink or Oh-Yellow and Oh-Pink. Even if she disguises herself, Haruna’s disguise is usually manly and not attractive. Consider the moment when she dresses up as a samurai (episode 4), a motorcycle rider (episode 19), and a bitter ghost (episode 22). The cutest disguise she wears is probably when she turns into a bride (episode 12), but even this disguise is not “sexy,” and it does not expose her body. Moreover, she only turns into a bride for a few short minutes, and this disguise is only to fool the monster, not to show off.




-) There is no bath-scene in Turboranger. Anytime Haruna jumps to the water, she always wears something, be it her school uniform, her after school clothes, or a swimsuit. We cannot find a single scene of her taking a shower like Deka Pink.


-) There is no “damsel-in-distress” scene, where Haruna is kidnapped, tied up, or taken as a hostage, except when she is taken by Zuluten by force (episode 19), but she does this on purpose to fool Zuluten and get the antidote for Youhei. This is very different from the Super Sentai series that come before or after Turboranger like Blue Dolphin, Dai Pink, Oh-Pink, and Time Pink. In Turboranger, we cannot find such a scene. The only moment where Haruna is in distress is probably when she gets locked up in a cage, but at least she is not kidnapped or tied up. There is actually the time where she gets tied up with a chain, but she is not alone. Rather, all the five rangers are chained up, so this scene does not count as “damsel-in-distress.”

-) Haruna is as powerful and helpful as the guys. Consider how many times she saves the boys from danger (episode 5, episode 19, episode 45). While it may be true that she is weaker and slower than them (especially when she is in her human form), she always does her best and works hard until the end. She even refuses the guys’ offer to clean up her mess (episode 45). As long as she can do it, she will fight on her own. She is truly a heroine.




Apart from Haruna, we can also see the “female empowerment” theme in Jamin and Kirika, although their roles are probably not as strong as Haruna, as they still care about romance. However, we can see how strong these two women are, and they can definitely fight like men do. They are even stronger than Zuluten that he is willing to become their ride and slave.

So, that is my review on “female empowerment” in Turboranger. I was really surprised with how open-minded everyone who worked on this series was. This series definitely shows how strong and empowering women can be, and I truly appreciate it.

Anyway, if I miss anything, I will update this article in the future. See you again next time!

Ranking and Updates II

Hi, everyone. It has been a while since my update on ranking, so I thought I would do it again. This time, the top nine countries that visit my blog are quite different from the last one. However, Japan and Philippines are still high on the list, so I know there are many Super Sentai fans over there, especially Turboranger. At any rate, I would like to thank everyone who has visited this blog. It means a lot to me, and I really appreciate it!


One more update I would like to mention is, in case you have not noticed, I have removed the “日本語” (Japanese) section from this blog, because I have not updated it for a while. Once I have a chance to work more on it, I will put it back up. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Anyway, that is all for now. There is no new article today, but I am preparing a number of interesting articles, so please look forward to them.

Thank you again for everything, and see you next time!

Yamagata Daichi

Hi, everyone. Today, I am going to continue to focus on each ranger, and this time, it is Yamagata Daichi‘s turn, a.k.a. Black Turbo. Daichi also marks the last ranger I will have to cover, so after this, I can definitely write about something new. Before we proceed, however, I would like to give you the links to the other rangers, so you can just click on them if you want to read about each ranger respectively: Honoo Riki, Hama Youhei, Hino Shunsuke, Morikawa Haruna. Anyway, let us get started now.

-) Daichi loves to run. I do not think that he is the fastest among the five rangers (Kousoku Sentai Turboranger the Movie), but he definitely is the one who can run the longest (episode 4). When his friends get tired and give up, Daichi leaves them behind and keeps running by himself. However, in the end, Daichi learns that it is more fun to run with his friends than by himself.


-) Daichi is a hard-worker. Even when he cannot transform, he will not give up. Rather, he will do his best to find a solution to every problem he encounters (episode 4, episode 15, episode 17, episode 20, episode 34, episode 40).



-) Daichi is very strict and straightforward. He does not want people to mess with him. If this happens, he will deal with that person severely without hesitating. Consider the moment he throws the calipers to the blackboard when Hikaru tries to attack Daichi with them (episode 13). Daichi is also the one who slaps Youhei when Youhei is being stubborn about hanging out with Rin, despite of the fact that she is part of Boma Tribes (episode 26).

-) Daichi does not speak in Tokyo dialect like the other rangers do (episode 19). This is probably because the actor who plays Daichi, Ganaha Yoshiaki, comes from Okinawa, so his character also speaks in Okinawa dialect.

-) Daichi can be shy sometimes. Consider the moment when he is forced to wear only a loincloth by Hikaru (episode 20).


-) Daichi can be funny sometimes (episode 23), and he seems to enjoy Youhei’s jokes (episode 13, episode 16).

-) Daichi does not seem to be interested in women (episode 23), and it is most likely that he has never had a girlfriend before. Having said that, he seems to have a problem interacting with girls, to the point that he does not act like a gentleman. For example is when he brings a frog closer to Haruna, even though he knows that Haruna is terrified with it (episode 14). It also seems that Yukari’s kiss takes him by surprise, which could mean that he has never experienced it before (episode 34). However, Daichi is an ordinary boy after all, because in the end, he still enjoys the kiss. Moreover, he also looks jealous when his friend, Koichi, walks away with his girlfriend, Yuki (episode 6), so it is most likely that he also desires a girlfriend.

-) Daichi is both loyal and emotional (episode 28). He gets very sad and devastated when his vehicle, Turbo Truck, is almost destroyed, but he will never give it up. Rather, he will fight until the end, and his persistence gives him a sweet result.

-) Daichi is both kind and smart (episode 40). He takes pity on Wataridori Boma when he begs Daichi for mercy, even though it is easy for Daichi to just defeat him. On the other hand, Daichi is smart enough to realize that he has been tricked by Wataridori Boma, so he plays along with his scheme, while coming up with a plan to counterattack him.


That is all for today. See you again next time!
