The next entry in the Super Sentai franchise has been officially announced.
The 45th Super Sentai series titled Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger will premiere on March 7, 2021. The roster for this series includes one human and four robot heroes. A fresh take on the usual team.
In this story, our heroes will use full-force full-throttle (the catchphrase of the series: 全力全開) to stop the enemies who are trying to destroy the parallel universes. One hero known as Zenkaiser, with a heart of justice, will stand up to a preposterous giant mass of evil who has managed to break into their home world. Fighting alongside him are four robotic lifeforms.
The visuals of the five heroes are themed on past Super Sentai heroes. Zenkaiser’s design is based on Akaranger from Himitsu Sentai Gorenger; Zenkaijyuran is based on the Daizyujin from Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger; Zenkaigaon is based on Gao King from Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger; Zenkaimazin is based on Magi King from Mahou Sentai Magiranger; And lastly, Zenkaiburun is based on Daibouken from GoGo Sentai Boukenger.
One of the highlights of the series is seeing the four robotic life-size lifeforms squaring off against life-sized enemies – a new novel take on the usual mecha fights in Super Sentai history. They will also have the ability to engage in giant battles as they are.
The device in this series is called the Gear Tringer. An item that can be used to transform, used in battle, or in giant battles. The item can combine with the Zenkai Gear that will combine their powers.
Prior to the TV series premiere, there will be a multiple movie feature on February 20, 2021: Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger: the Movie, Super Sentai Movie: Rangers 2021 (untitled), Mashin Sentai Kiramager: The Movie and Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger: The Movie.
