Trivia / Mahou Sentai Magiranger

  • One of Us: According to the interview below, Beppu Ayumi was a big fan of Super Sentai growing up, and Hikari Sentai Maskman in particular.
  • Reality Subtext: According to this interview, Houka's actress wanted to be MagiRed, while Kai's actor never expected to be chosen for the part. Puts the two-parter where they switch bodies into a whole new light, doesn't it?
  • What Could Have Been: According to this interview, Beppu Ayumi, who played Houka, tried out for the role of Magi Red, and Matsumoto Hiroya, who played Tsubasa, supported her in this. Thus, we would have gotten the first female red Ranger four years earlier.
    • Furthermore, there were many different mech configurations, like SeraphKaiser, a fusion of Wolzard and Unigolon, that never made it into the show.
    • There was a 10 Years After movie in the vein of Hurricaneger and Dekaranger planned, but due to difficulties in getting the main cast back together (Most of them are retired by this point), the project eventually evolved into the Gavan vs. Dekaranger movie.
