Tokusatsu singers Isao Sasaki and Atsushi Yanaka have been announced to voice the villains Sentai Megid and Rider World in the upcoming movie, Super Hero Senki, premiering July 22.
In a new trailer for the upcoming double-anniversary movie Super Hero Senki, Isao Sasaki and Atsushi Yanaka join the voice cast alongside other well-known names such as M・A・O (Rapter-283 / Washi Pink) and Toshihiko Seki (Momotaros / Kamen Rider Den-O). However, instead of joining the heroes, the two of them will oppose them as the villains Sentai Megid and Rider World.
Legendary tokusatsu and anime singer Isao Sasaki joins the cast of Super Hero Senki as the voice of Sentai Megid, a monster that is related to the enemies of Kamen Rider Saber but with parts bearing resemblance to Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger‘s leader Zenkaiser. In tokusatsu, Isao Sasaki is well-known for singing the opening of the very first Super Sentai series, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger, in a duet with Mitsuko Horie. The two have returned to celebrate the franchise’s milestone in singing the insert song “Zenkai Gattai! JuranGaon,” but Isao Sasaki has come back yet again to give fans even more to look forward to.
On the other side, Rider World is an enemy that shares design elements with the titular Kamen Rider of Kamen Rider Saber. A monster related to those created by the Tojitend Empire in Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger, Rider World is seen fighting Kamen Rider Saber in the newest trailer. This monster is voiced by Atsushi Yanaka who is also one of the vocalists in the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, the artist singing the movie’s theme song “SPARK” in addition to the opening theme of Kamen Rider Saber.
Many heroes will return, in voice as well as in person, to protect Saber and Zenkaiger’s mixing worlds, but will they be enough against these new, fearsome enemies?
Super Hero Senki will premiere in movie theaters across Japan on July 22.
