Long Time No See/2016 Sentai Rumors Begin

Hey all,
It's that time of the year again- copyrights should be released soon for the next Super Sentai.
Before we get to that, I just want to apologize for not updating the blog more often. Things have been busy with work and real life, but I'm getting the hang of juggling things, so hopefully I'll be able to update more often. Okay, on to the rumors.

Murmurings on the Japanese boards have pointed to next year's motif being "Space + Insects" (Uchuu + Muchuu)

As usual, please take this with a grain of salt. You are welcome to re-post the information as long as you make it clear that this is a rumor, and in no way factual news.

As for my personal remarks on the validity of this:

-Fourze used space as its theme, so it could be a nice little nod depending on what they decide to do with the make of the show

-Most anniversary series have had something to do with space, however small. Still, Super Sentai has never had a true space-themed series.

-Even though Ghost is likely inspired by a Firefly, the Rider designs do not resemble bugs; neither have the last couple of rider shows, which from what we know, should free up Sentai to use these themes.

-Insects are a hard sell for PLEX, whose designs are mostly based on a "transforming cube" concept. (The insects/arachnids that have appeared as mecha in Super Sentai were usually either weaponry, or in the case of the Gouraiger machines, tanks with insect motifs.)

If the rumor holds, we could see various space faring machines with different insect motifs. In recent years, we've seen PLEX attempt to move into more complex individual mecha. Both Space and Insects are two things that are sort of easy sells with the core audience, and would be a sensible follow up to dinosaurs, trains, and ninja.

Stay tuned!

(OT) Dukemon22, Travel Agent (My new job!)

Hey Toku Fans,
Long Time No-Post. Well there's a reason for that- I've been busy, I mean really busy. Life and work and all that. I was recently hired at a Japanese Travel Agency, and I'm having a blast. If anyone in the toku community needs international travel, feel free to contact me.

It would mean a lot to me if some of the followers here could like the company facebook page:

The blog is officially back-to-action. Except more updates in the coming weeks (Kamen Rider Drive, new ToQGer stuff, etc.)
