Ninja Sentai Kakuranger Synopsis

It’s been a long time since the great war between the Three God Generals and the Youkai, an ancient race of monstrous spirits. Since then, imprisoned in a cave protected by the mystical Seal Door, their leader Daimaou and his Youkai army wait, planning for the day they can finally strike. That day has arrived and it is up to the Kakurangers, along with the Three God Generals, to defeat the Youkai before Daimaou’s villainy destroys Earth!
