So I'm watching Power Rangers earlier and this stadium they're fighting in looks oddly similar to one shown in an episode of the live action Sailor Moon show. Turns out it's the same place, though some dozen or so years later it looks to have been cleaned up quite a bit. The stands were what I put together in my memory, but the windows and painting are what prove it to be the same place.

From the Might Morphin Power Rangers episode "No Clowning Around":

Image Image Image Image

From Act. 7 of the live action Sailor Moon show:
Image Image Image Image Image

This isn't the first time I see something like this. Some stock footage used to show the world get destroyed in Sailor Moon was recycled from a scene where the Zords were destroyed in Power Rangers:

Power Rangers:

Sailor Moon:

I know a lot of people had been around Japan scouting locations. Anyone familiar with this place? I assume it's some kind of fair as that's where the rest of Act 7 takes place. It's the one where they go on a date with Motoki, Mamoru and the turtle fan and that Mamoru sees Usagi transform.

Wow, interesting finding :)
And for me that locations are the same, which park is that?

Kind of off-topic: The pink ranger pose is similar at the venus pose? :D

Not exactly Power Rangers, but Zyuranger. Or, the Zyuranger footage used in Power Rangers.

Such multiple use of locations is not uncommon in tokusatsu field. Why, just a while back I was watching an episode of Kamen Rider Ryuki and noticed that they were shooting at a set of steps looked very similar archetectural-wise to the steps that Usagi and Mamoru were sitting on in the "Tuxedo Kamen's Birth" short.

Kamen Rider Ryuki - episode 44

PGSM - Tuxedo Kamen's Birth

While these may not be the exact same set of steps, their similarity does hint at a common location and/or designer.

Well yes I did not imagine an LA based film crew went to Tokyo for a location shooting. My statement is not incorrect. I stated it as such as I don't know the Zyurangers episode this is from, though one could find when the pineapple monster first appeared, but that would probably be a pointless fact to mention as I don't imagine many people, if anyone, that is reading this would have seen it. I didn't really feel like being pedantic anyway. The clips are also in "A Pressing Engagement" where they fight King Sphynx, but I don't believe they are from the Zyurangers episode with that monster, as he's in the first episode and the pineapple monster is not.

Must be a common location for Japanese tv and film productions.

Location: Rewatching PGSM for the 9000th time
There's this one place that was in PGSM that has been used in EVERY incarnation of Power Rangers I've ever seen: that place with the fountain from Act 6. Seriously, EVERY incarnation of Power Rangers plus it showed up in Kamen Rider Dragon Knight as well. Every time I see it I'm like "OH HI I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE."

I will have my sister the Power Rangers Sage track it down and get back to you. XD I would be really shocked if it wasn't in MMPR because I swear, I see that place every time the TV's on practically.

Something like a tokusatsu holy place I guess - that must be a good revenue source for the venue's estate management. :P

If you live in a place where movies are shot you'll notice a lot of the same locations are used. If you know what to look for you can easily tell. No big surprise that Tokyo would be the same way. It's kind of neat when you recognize something in a film and you're like OH I know what and where that is.

Oh yes Tunisia!!!! :P I watches extras, but I forgot.

Of course I know they're Lucas' films, they're they had more in common than just the set place... :P And more than an actor. Freakin' gorgeous actor.

Yes, it is well known that Metaria's legions of cloaked Youma used the suits of the Golem Hei/Putty Patrollers.

Cool to find the same locations in PR and PGSM. I got the PR episodes some time ago and rewatching the show brought me back to when I saw the show originally. The great thing about rediscovering the show now is being able to find the music. I still like a bunch of the fight themes.
