Hiroshi Miyauchi Kicks Jason David Frank's Butt
Happy Birthday to the "greatest" ranger of all time... NOT!
I guess it's always going to be one question that some Power Rangers fans could throw at me. They might ask why I complain about Jason David Frank while not minding Hiroshi Miyauchi's multiple appearances. While it does sound stupid but I could talk about the huge difference: Miyauchi-san plays different characters while JDF is Tommy through and through. Tommy here, Tommy there and you get one overrated guy while there's other Power Rangers warriors who can kick his arrogant butt.
Miyauchi is Aoranger, Kamen Rider V3, Big One and Zubat and they are all different characters. He's always willing to step aside to make room for new legends. Winspector, Solbrain and Ohranger is where Miyauchi appears as a mentor and he steps aside for newer legends. In Ohranger, he doesn't do what Tommy does. Sure, he's amazing as Commander Miura and he alone could make JDF look like a baby. Making JDF the reason why Zeo is better than Ohranger is stupid though I wouldn't say Miura makes Ohranger better. I'd focus on how Ohranger in spite of all its flaws gives a better story and ending. Zeo was just bridging that overextended Zordon Arc. That definitely is a record that he plays several characters with different personalities. Even better, he never considers himself the face of Toei's franchises. That humility of his is really why I don't mind him playing as different characters.
Pretty much, I hope he chokes on this entry as my "birthday gift" to him and it will do the same to people who think he's the greatest legend ever. Besides, the JDF fanbase can just be considered the same as the fanbase that Hercule really has. They think he's the greatest person ever even when the real accomplishment isn't his. On the other hand, Miyauchi doesn't even consider himself to be the face of Tokusatsu even if Big One is considered by some as Super Sentai's mascot. But for JDF he wants to promote Tommy who is nothing more than an overrated flunky. I could jsut let those people fall down while I can watch my favorite shows. They weren't ruined by him. In fact, "thanks" to him the Super Sentai shows are becoming more and more watchable in the eyes of those who've seen the truth about him.
