The guest-quality ratio for Sentai

Post by takenoko » Sat Feb 13, 2016 8:50 pm

This idea has been bobbing around in my head a while. Just thought I'd write it out here and see if it's true or not.

So here's my theory, the more money Toei is spending on the series, the more guests they'll have.

Let's look at Ninninger, they had 31 guests listed on their wiki. Toqger had about 62.

Kyouryuuger had 20, but they also had a ton of spirit rangers that had a lot of screen time. Plus they had a lot of veterans like Kinoshita Ayumi and BoukenSilver's actor and Ramirez.

Go-Busters had 29

Gokaiger had 77

Maybe I need to think about this theory a bit more. Or add in semi-regulars with a weighted value for them.

I would be curious how many guest stars Gokaiger would have if the earthquake didn't happen since they didn't originally planned to have as many cameos from the previous series.

I think the reason why Toqger had so many guest stars was due to the traveling nature of the show. They weren't really in the same place compared to most other Sentai series. It wouldn't make sense if they kept encountering the same people in a different town except for the Shadow Line villains.

So are we saying that the more guests there are the mover average the show is? Because that'd probably be my ranking of the shows listed anyway.

I guess I'm confused what "guest" entails here. I know for Gokaiger it was previous sentai actors, that's obvious, but like... I can't think what it was for ToQ? Just cameos of well-known drama/film actors? Does this include popular seiyuu as well?
