Carranger Episode 20 Is Super Sentai's 1,000th Episode!
It's no secret that next week's Zyuohger episode will be the big celebration of Super Sentai's 2,000th episode. I remembered Kamen Rider OOO was celebrating that episodes 27-28 are the Kamen Rider franchise' 999th-1,000th episode . What I missed or failed to notice is that Super Sentai had it's 1,000th episode released with Carranger episode 20, "Test Drive The Ultimate Famous Cars". What's interesting is that Carranger is also Super Sentai's 20th anniversary and the 1000th episode was released on the 20th episode of the 20th season.
a good gimmick for toy sales. Ohranger concluded the Takeyuki Suzuki era. Carranger was the beginning of Shigenori Takatera's entrance as a producer and some ideas from the past were made better. Since Carranger was supposedly succeeding where Turboranger failed (and I dare believe it) I guess they wanted more cool gimmicks with the addition of a vehicle change. Having VRV Robo isn't all that surprising since having a secondary combining robot has been introduced since Kakuranger.
While it's a pretty good episode but I felt that it didn't really do much to celebrate a milestone. But it's still a really badass episode nonetheless. But again, we do know that anniversaries started to get bigger during Gaoranger, Boukenger, Gokaiger and most recently Zyuohger. I guess that's why Carranger didn't do much of a huge celebration back then!
