Forgot to mention this, but this was Arakawa Fumie's directorial debut. Why is this important?
It's because she's the first female toku director at Toei. And I feel like reaction to this movie have been overwhelmingly positive. Not to make a gross over generalization, but I think having a lady director will inject something different and new to the toku genre, since men and women have different ways of thinking about things.
She's had a history of assistant director work from all the way back to GaoRanger. She mostly works on Sentai, but she's done some work on Drive and various other movies too.
