"Ninpuu...Jinrai...Tenkuu...Shinobi Change!"
13 February 2003 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Just recently, this series ended and now will be translated to Power Rangers Ninja Storm in the US. I'm crossing my fingers that Doug Sloan and Disney doesn't mess up a perfectly good series, considering these days Power Rangers are following the Sentai storyline format.

In this series, you have two factions, the Hurricangers and the Goraijers. They begin as two rival ninja groups but eventually join forces. They're eventually joined by a sixth member, the Shurikenjer (Green Samurai in Ninja Storm), who doesn't have a true identity the entire series. He is mostly disguised as women, old people, businessmen, etc. etc. etc. Furthermore, the guy speaks decent English, quoting when he transforms: `I am Ninja of Ninja!' Not to mention, the Shurikenger, while in his Fire Mode transformation, uses a baseball bat and nails his enemies with a barrage of baseball, how funny is that! Although, he doesn't reveal his face, he does have a name, but I won't say who he is. I think Shurikenger is also a vallant warrior, including near the end of the series. For those who watched Hurricanger, should know what happened to him. For those, who didn't watch it.oh well.

As for villains, although Tao Zanto was the main bad guys, the other villains stood out. Furabiijou, Windenu (nicknamed Wendy by her allies), and Sandaru; Furabiijou was too sweet to be a villain. Windenu was a calm and smart. She also had a sisterly relationship with Furabiijou. Sandaru, aka the Shark Ninja, was the cruelest and most treacherous of the Hurricanger villains, it came to the point where he killed his own allies.

Out of the cast, I really liked Nanami/Hurricane Blue (played by Nao Nagasawa) just because.^_^ However, I also like Oboro Hinata, the daughter of the hamster.er..I mean sensei and inventor of the Ninja weapons. The actress, Seiko Takada, brought some comedy. She really brought out Oboro's smart@$$ attitude, which usually annoys the heroes, but makes the show funny.

Overall, it's a pretty good series. Now, it's just up to those behind Power Ranger to meet the expectations of its Japanese Counterpart.
