You'd think with the popularity of the MARVEL Cinematic Universe they would allow the Spider-Man Tokusatsu, Battle Fever J, Denziman, and Sun Vulcan to be released to DVD/Blu-Ray here in the States

Actually Supaidaman had a pretty badass origin story.  I hear that they are actually including him in the Spider-Verse crossover with every other Spider-Man. 
You got something wrong about Battle Fever J The first team to have an active member die was go ranger when they replace Kiranger
Keith Knox
I really wish that there was more influence on the American side. Japan took concepts from America and made them their own but did America manage to make anything new that became a big hit during that collaboration period?
Intro is still way too long, but this was a good episode orherwise

Part 3 was awesome!!! I'm actually glad it came out now, since I'm taking a grad school course on Graphic novels and comic books currently. I knew that the Marvel partnership went through Denziman, but had no idea that it influenced Sun Vulcan as well, nor did I know that Stan Lee wanted to bring Sentai to America and use American actors. Interesting fact! It was also nice seeing that short Stan Lee interview clip regarding his relationship with Toei. You guys do such amazing work with this series, and it shows the amount of care and time you take into each episode. I look forward to the next entry and hear more about the Dynaman parody that made it to America
+Toy Bounty Hunters +toybounty is there a part 4?
Great video. I posted it over to Henshin Justice Unlimited. Side note, I'm on a PC and heard the Dynaman part just fine.
Chanler Bordeaux
Best part ever!
YES! Hope everyone likes it, it was truly a labor of love. 
Nice, but you see Toei went to Marvel about producing a Tokusatsu based on a Marvel hero, as American comic books were also popular at the time. Sad that there is NO mention of the Shogun Warriors Marvel comic (which I'm sure was part of the deal) nor was any mention of Marvel Productions' later usage of Toei Animation. You didn't have to go into detail, just briefly mentioning them would be enough.
Question: In Gokaiger, Gokeired's name is Captain Marvelous. Was that an intentional nod to Marvel, or just a freaky coincidence? I tried looking it up but found nothing.
I had no idea that from a certain angle, Stan Lee is the reason we have Megazord battles. His legacy is far bigger then I realized.
Really looking forward to the next one :O
Thanks for uploading Part 3. I can't wait for part 4.
The "messenger from hell" thing can also be a language difference. There are some things that there aren't words for in other languages. The word that they used "hell" in place of could be something else. It could also be like saying "your worst nightmare" or "the one who will damn you to hell."
Andrew Viewtieful Tachibana
raise your hand if you wanna see these marvel sentai appear in marvel games, like Ultimate Alliance or Marvel Heroes
Jonathan and Matthew's FunTime
you forgot to say Denjiman is the first sentai to use a returning actor which was Battle Kenya which plays DenjiBlue
Usually this stuff is boring to watch. But when it is about something you like it's not boring!

Holy shit I love Dynaman so much. My biological father recorded a ton of Night Flight, and I wore out the tapes watching Dynaman over and over again. Apparently they used a Dynaman key in Super Megaforce, but they didn't morph into them, which is hella lame, considering how important that show is to the history of power rangers. Also, since watching this episode, I now know four things about Spiderman: 1.) He drives a giant robot 2.) he's a six foot tall spider 3.) he's Italian and 4.) he's the messenger from hell. Sounds like a cool guy, all things considered.
I'm pretty sure that Goranger was the first sentai to both replace and kill a Ranger. Kiranger left to become the new commander and a new Kiranger was brought on board, but he was killed 13 episodes later and the original had to rejoin. And please tell me your not skipping Goggle V for Dynaman. Stll really enjoyed it.
So Marvel whas the leader for Santai interesting
Tommy Brennan
I'm happy that everyone enjoys watching these as much as we love making them! Thank you all for the continued support!
Really great episode! Do any of you have speculations on what could have happened if Marvel got what they were looking for? Would the Power rangers formula have been as well received without the nineties pop culture boom as we know it?
After hearing that Stan Lee tried to adapt Super Sentai, Marvel should have bought Power Rangers.
Nadeem Hosein
Very well executed!
Jonathan Adams
Hopefully the wait for part 4 isn't as long as it was for part 3
Neat looking forward to the next one
I would really like for the Japanese version of Spiderman to at least have it's own issues of comics in Marvel, yes I know he was in a Marvel comic but can he at least have own series of comic books!? It looks like a really concept for a comic book series.
Gary Chan
thank you for the part 3 ^-^
Leopardon is the powerful giant robot of them all. Even stronger than Guren Lagann, Turn A, and Demonbane. No joke.
Jason T Scott-West
When will part IV be coming out?
There were anime series that were forerunners of the Sentai rangers series, too. Two of the big ones were Cyborg 009 from the 1960s and Science Ninja Team Gatchaman from the early 1970s. Gatchaman is more obvious because of the traditional superhero team outfits with helmets and winged capes... It also has a 5-member team with an obvious central field leader, a mentor/Professor X character behind the scenes (Dr. Nabu), and a female team member (Jun, G-3). Their powers are largely redundant although their vehicles have individual specialties (fighter jet, race car, ATV, motorcycle, mother ship). Heck, the vehicles even come together and plug into each other to form a complete mecha! (The God Phoenix). It's not quite like Voltron in the 1980s (which is more like the Power Rangers/Sentai Rangers Zords) but it's a similar concept. Cyborg 009 is different... The characters clearly have different abilities, much less overlap there but still wear a team suit design (colors changing among the different C-009 series). In some ways, C-009 is actually quite a bit like the relaunched mid-1970s X-Men title with the international team of mutants. C-009 also has its international, racially diverse cast of cyborg characters which is very different for a Japanese anime/manga series...
Primus Productions
No mention of Tatsunoko's Science Ninja Team Gatchaman?
Enrique Del Risco
Fun fact: Machiko Soga also voiced Great Britain/Cyborg 007 in the 1960s anime adaptations of Cyborg 009 (007 was depicted as a 7-year-old boy, whereas in the manga and more recent adaptations, he's middle-aged man).
Wait yellow goranger was replaced and the replacement died
Awesomely awesome.
Thomas Liu
We need more ring morphers in Super Sentai.
Solly sussman
We need a modern day update of the toku Spider-Man. Kinds like how they brought back the Space Sheriffs and Kikaider.

Very sad truth: Sun Vulcan wouldn't fly well today, especially since the lack of female rangers would make the SJWs scream, especially the feminazis.
Kent Brown
SPOILLER Anyone wonder if the Denziman know that Hedrian been defeated and what you think they were doing while Sun Vulcan where fighting her I now its just a show but I still find it hilarious that the Denziman were pretty much like Hedrian gone she not dead she just vanished so were gonna stop being the Denziman
Aye it's ultra man and godzilla woo
Tavi Dogaru
Those "looking off camera" segments are so funny xD

Liam Early
I'm hoping that the Japanese Spiderman can get an official dvd release in America
kind giving it a new twist on Spiderman, next they should do something with DC Comics!
Wow, people who complain about what the American adaptation did to Super Sentai, they really need to see this Japanese version of Spider-Man.
This series of videos is so good :D
Sir Needlemouse
Power Rangers Spider-man crossover hmmmmmmmmm
The miracle
What was up with that handshake ? That's not how you do that
Ed Zydrix Majait

Dominick Krikke

jo broni
Could anyone tell me if the suited up Miss America for Battle Fever J was a dude in that pink suit with a blonde wig or a chick? Am I looking at a dude-butt @7:56 or a chick-butt? LOL!
steven hibbert
peofessor monster not very subtle is it
Lou Guevara

RiNickulous Productions
So super sentai exists because of Spider-Man? And power rangers exist because of Spider-Man? What next? Kamen rider exists because of Spider-Man?
RiNickulous Productions
Weirdest Spider-Man ever. And that's saying something. There is a pig Spider-Man (spiderham) and a noir Spider-Man and more versions.
Kono Dio Da!!
Spoiler alert the orange guy died in battle fever J
Keegan Douglass
The Kicker Pro
Very Pro!!!
Elver Galinda
What is the song you used for the intro?
The Man From Krypton
Imagine if the Avengers were sentai-fied, would they all be armored up like Iron Man, or carry weapons - like someone wielding the hammer of Thor, the Shield of Cap, the bow from Hawkeye, Black Widow's stingers and Falcon's wings...
Ryan Kadlec
in 1978, Toei and Marvel agreed to have Spider-Man to japan. Toei's Spider-Man was first aired a year after the short-lived Spider-Man TV Series first aired on CBS. they're no Spider-Man movies until 2002 with Sam Rami's Spider-Man and its two sequels until Marc Webb's short-lived Amazing Spider-Man film series came in from 2012 to 2014. a solo Spider-Man movie will be made and released in July 2017, a year after his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War.
Getting back to this Spider-Man live-action series... Japan's known for some really WEIRD entertainment in live-action and animation but even by their standards this IS funky! I wouldn't say it's necessarily better than what was done in the US in the 1970s with the Nicholas Hammond Spider-Man TV series BUT that theme song and web robot really stick out. I'm sorry but it's hilarious unintentional or not! P.S. -- Those girls around 3:56 in the video -- damn, were they cute!
Marty Carman
How does spiderman have a megazord
Ariel Wollinger
Awesome. Except for the religious mumbo jumbo at the credits.
Also Battle Fever has their own Marvel Universe. Earth-79203
that where you are wrong the first one to replace and died  was from the first sentai goranger character name daigoro kumano appear in episode 55 and last appear in episode 67  
Count Comedy
Wow, I'm am so glad I am not Japanese, or was around during this time, cause I am wondering how Asian spiderman even made it on screen. His web was clearly a rope, he climbed up the wall like he couldn't even do what spiderman is known for, that is not the story of how spiderman came to be, the suit looks like a cheap halloween costume you get at the dollar store, and the stunts were just horrible. Apparently I'm right, Americans do everything better than the Japanese, such as Spiderman, Transformers, and Power Rangers. Spiderman is american, Transformers became a phenomenon as well as iconic under Hasbro, and Power Rangers wouldn't be just be a one time show if it hadn't been adapted by Americans.
John Oxdord
Who the history has been good so far👏do you have an idea of how long till part 4?
When do we get part 4 and so on?
Since this was only on region 2 dvd, does anyone know of any fansubs of this series?
Dark Advent
OMG!!!! I didn't knew that they were planning a Crossover between Denziman and Sun Vulcan. It should have been AWESOME. I just wish that I could go back in time to help Marvel to got a TV Channel to Feature Super Sentai SINCE Battle Fever J with a sticky name like Power Rangers: Battle Fever (Im not trying to be Original) and to make all the future sentai with the same stories, AS MINIMUM DUBBED. And, before Gokaiger, They could do an "American Effects and Cast" movie with GoRanger and JAKQ setting them as Movies (Maybe Series) as a PROLOGUE to explain why their Gokaiger Version can CHANGE TO THEM explaining them as FORERUNNERS. Well, thats only my opinion.
Youtu ber
Actually, Machiko Soga had played a minor villain in Battle Fever J.
Part 4 Any time soon guys?
BumpBob Looly
Leandro Kuraoka

Gerald Mimms

Demetrio Nieves

What is the song playing at the 30 second mark? I've heard it in the Red Ranger roll call for Super Sentai's 25 anniversary.
What's the song starting at 0.30?
Please please please look in to the camera. This is basic stuff.
