People were asking if Boon/Boom are supposed to be Vroom, but no ru in it

I was going to show them "Hey, there's a character in Sentai named Vroom..."

But I forgot they spelled it Vroon. Toei, why are you like this??

This is an incredibly compelling argument. You have my vote!

To be fair, Toei has had way stupider romanisations. I still maintain that the secondary Rider in Build is named Claws, and that fans are insane for going alone with "Cross-Z" like it means anything whatsoever. He's a bloody dragon named クローズ, how is that not "Claws"?

I didn't translate build, so I don't remember where I landed on that. But yeah, Claws does make more sense to me too. That's not much of a cross anything in Cross-Z's theming to justify that name

BoonBoom (and BoomBoom) sound exactly as the word 'ass' in portuguese. As someone who has portuguese as he's fist language, I'm laughing my BoomBoom off everytime I hear anything about the new sentai.

I'm on the fence about some things (mostly the suits and the mecha), but I'm already liking this more than KingOhger after their first episode, so we'll see where it goes.

Any chance that the second "boom" was given an "n" to blend into the end of "ranger" like other Sentai names do and the order just got mixed up?

Says something that the question of which boom came first is even a thing.

Then wouldn't it be Boomboonger? That almost makes more sense

No, it's probably Toei being bad at romanization. Here's one possible explanation from a linguistic standpoint: In Japan, it's just bun bun + ger. That becomes Boonboonger, but when the n/m is followed by another consonant, the n turns into an m (it's because the n takes on a softer sound of m to make it easier to say the followup sound). So Boonboomger

This would explain why Buruun becomes Vroon in Zenkaiger. Yeah it's based on Vroom, but there's no reason to change the n to a m since there's no followup sound to soften it

You have my vote for Boomboomger as well. Although I do think Boomboonger has a better flow for western audiences, so I'd be happy with that as well. Toei can't Engrish, so it's usually better to ignore their attempts and go with what they likely intended instead.

That's why I said it got flipped around. Of course, who knows how it came about?
