Why not both? Kiramager for the title and Kiramei for when there's no g, like KirameiRed or Kiramei Stone? Fourth option~
Would the pronouciation change if you write Kiramei for the rangers colour and stone as Kirame instead? I mean, it is not like Kirameki spelled as Kirameiki but pronounced like it? Would it be similar like the French case with Lupin spells with an I but pronounced with an A? Just asking

The pronunciation doesn't change since Japanese is a phonetic language. It looks like it changes since English isn't. So mage would still be pronounced may-ji. But if you see ma, most people would pronounce it mah.

Without the -ge following mage, it makes the other compound words weird to see, like KiramaRed and Kirama Stone would make it seem like it's Kira mah red and kira mah stone instead of KirameiRed and Kiramei Stone

Case in point: even though I know how those names are supposed to be pronounced, I still read them in my head as "Kira mah" when viewing Takenoko's post.

I don't think Toei spells it as Kiramager instead of Kirameger for no reason. They must be spelling it like that for a reason, so I say we should just leave it as it is.

And about consistency too. Seeing Kiramager and Kiramei Stone is going to be even more annoying, I think.

Reading 'a' as an 'e' isn't uncommon in English anyway. For example, in the word "major."

Right, but that doesn't end in ma. Mage and Major have a sound after it to change the previous vowel.

I always prefer whatever the official spelling is (no matter how absurd it might be), so I'm rooting for Kiramager and Kiramai<color>

If you treat Kiramared as a single compound word, the last syllable is -red, so it still works that way. And if you really want to go for a phonetic spelling, I think Kiramay- would be much better.

Anyway, there's always dissonance between English-derived words and their Japanese pronounciations. If you think about it every single sentai name is spelled wrong, since if you really spelled it phonetically it would be -mayja or -meija, not -mager. So I don't see why sweat over this particular one too much. :)

The purpose is to decide so that the subtitle wouldn't look weird to the audience/reader.

Let's just go with "Kiramager", "Kiramai-Red, Kiramai-Blue, etc", and the mecha it's "Kiramagin" ??? ^_^;

I'd like it written as Kirameiger, just so it has the "ay" sound show in a way that makes sense. The mechs can be called "Mages" though such as Land and Sky Mage.

I am not sure about the rangers name for roll call but the product toy official spelling for the team is Kiramager. Watch the link down below on Wotafa's channel.
