Japanese culture of super sentai, Power
Rangers Samurai is one of the many reincarnations/variations of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The story is about a team of young heroes,
each with their own power, color and element and giant robot/zord that when
they all come together they form the ultimate giant robot to fight evil. With each battle they fight the source of
evil's power (bullying, name calling, greed, unkindness, etc...), the rangers
are symbolic of good virtues for kids to follow. Extras include Power Rangers auditions and
video, character gallery, bloopers and weapons gallery.
