Thought this was funny, so I figured I'd share this with you. This happened while I was outside during my break at work. I was reading my Shinkenger manga when a guy comes up.
"Hey, which one is that? Is that Kamen Rider? Which one is that?"
So I have a mouth stuffed with crackers at this moment. I'm desperately trying to chew it up and swallow them so that I can give the guy a decent answer.
"Oh, it's Power Rangers isn't it?"
Finally able to answer, I respond, "Yeah, it's the Japanese version of Power Rangers."
His response was, "Oh! I thought it was a mix between Kamen Rider and Ultraman. I hadn't seen that one. So it's Power Rangers." And then he left before I could ask him which Kamen Rider he'd seen.
So... weird! A guy who knows Kamen Rider and Ultraman, but not Sentai. Even funnier, he looked at the Shinkenger and didn't immediately go "Zombies!" No wait... "Power Rangers!" I mean, let's face it, all Sentai/Power Rangers looks the same. I don't know if I'd ever look at a Power Ranger and go "Is that a Kamen Rider?"
Now I wonder what Kamen Rider shows he's seen. Seeing him walk away, I feel disappoint that he left before I could quiz him on that. Anyway, if you're that dude and you watch our subs, maybe post a response on the forums?
