Greetings and salutations, fellow aficionados of anime, Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and everything early 1990s to early 2000s, Antoni here. I hope you have a bowl of cereal, a nice plate of bacon and eggs, and a glass of orange juice ready with you because this would make you feel a whole more nostalgic once again, given the title. This hopefully marks the final time I am going to make a list of the seven main Inurangers cast from what I would like to call the Toonami Era of 2000 until 2009 as a counterpoint to the real-life Saban Era of Power Rangers from 1993 to 2002. I have even included the two movies that were released during the Saban Era, Inuranger-style, i.e. Mighty Morphin Inurangers the Movie and Turbo: An Inurangers Movie.
 
I did a lot of thinking, rethinking, and re-assessing, and I realised that, despite all the changes I made so far, I was still not satisfied with my prior list because there were some characters I believe deserved to be part of the Inurangers franchise as well as more love. Furthermore, there were some characters that would have made more sense than others in terms of the roles I assigned for them. This also means that there will be cast changes per Inuranger season akin to what is done in the Super Sentai shows, thus having all three seasons of Mighty Morphin Inurangers maintain the same seven members, instead of what occurred in real life when the OG Red, Yellow, and Black Rangers portrayed by Austin St John, Thuy Trang, and Walter Emanuel Jones hanging their mantles and passing their roles on to Steve Cardenas, Karan Ashley, and Johnny Yong Bosch, and having Inurangers Zeo with a completely different cast. This is essentially passing down the torch to each new Inuranger group as well as season.
 
With that said, let us get this show on the row. It’s Morphin’ Time! Shift into Turbo! Let’s rocket! Go galactic! Lightspeed Rescue! Time for Time Force! Wild access!

There you have it, ladies, gentlemen, and fans of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and anime of all ages. The Toonami-Era Inurangers teams, which serve as a fictional counterpoint to the real-life Saban-Era Power Rangers teams. I hope to move on to do the Saturday Evening Adult Swim-Era of Inurangers teams one day, i.e. from Ninja Storm to RPM, which serves as the fictional counterpoint to the real-life Disney-Era Power Rangers teams. It has been fun compiling this list as well as drawing information from the original Super Sentai shows they were based on in terms of cast changes as well as assigning two women characters in Toran and Mika in the Red Ranger roles, which was almost always taken by men. At least this is my way of saying that, if Inurangers existed on Cartoon Network’s Toonami, viewers would not have to wait for an Inurangers version of A Squad’s Charlie from Power Rangers SPD to be the first female Red Inuranger. Furthermore, this is clear-cut proof that anybody can be a Power Ranger or Inuranger in this case regardless if one is a Yokai or a human or a pre-teen or a teenager or an adult.
 
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and may the power protect you, everybody.
