So while MMPR series (and every PR series) is adaption of super sentai series that movie is reboot instead of being adaptation of adaptation (adaptationception).

I apologize in advance, because I can’t let this go, but Autism spectrum is not a mental disorder. It is neurological, yes, but not all parts of the brain have to do with cognition. The confusion isn’t unfounded as there is a higher rate of other disorders, some of which are mental handicaps, among those on the spectrum. However, it is highly possible to be on the spectrum and function normally, and even obtain a PhD if one has the inclination to. Ergo, being an aspie doesn’t mean Billy would be a bad fit to operate heavy machinery. His issues… Read more »
