Considering January 2015 has come and gone, I'm going to guess that we're not getting a season 3. Otherwise I have to assume they'd announce it at a January stage show like season 2.

I don't think S2 was received all too well. The original henshin gun still goes for about 6000-10000 yen but the season 2 version I've seen at a major retail store for 3000.

Interesting. I wasn't even aware there was a difference.

Originally? There wasn't. They both retailed for around 10000 yen. But the second season gun is super cheap now and the figuarts prices have plummeted in the resale market.

I feel like it's good as it is. The first season was fantastic, but the second season was just good. I don't really think there is anything more to do at this point.

I mean I didn't realize there was a physical difference in the guns such that there was a second season toy. :shock:

Probably modified to fit the blade attachment to the gun that came in season 2.

Anyway, the news article looks like it was written in 2013. Just because someone wants to do something doesn't mean he was successful in negotiating it out or getting the funding to make it happen.

My theory is that they choose not to do season three due to ToQger which has the rangers using the power of Imagination which would be considered similar to the Akibarangers power of delusion.

And another January comes and goes. I was really hoping after a 2 year break to recharge they'd pick it back up, but I guess it really is done.:(

Which makes Takenoko a complete bastard for using Akibaranger in his Twin Tails Day announcement.:P

Haha. I didn't want to use Natsuki from Boukenger, but realized I ended up using a cosplay of her instead. Wah wah.

Again, I'm not sure if there is anything more to parody at this point and I think it's good enough as it is.
