Current Juuouger Rumor Summary

As next week is the schedule Bandai meeting for wholesalers, I thought now would be a good time to summarize the rumors so far. As always PLEASE TAKE WITH A GRAIN OF SALT:

-Team will be 3+2

-Red will be an eagle, Yellow a lion, Blue a shark, Green an Elephant, White a Tiger. Blue and White will be female.

-Main robot will be composed of the 5 animal mecha, and a central core robot which will use the animals as armor. The idea of the series is "people using the power of animals."

-The series mecha will be animals, but have a "consumer appliance" motif.

-The helmets will have a "footprint" motif. 

-The design has been remarked as "cool meets corny." The helmets are intricately designed, whereas the torso is  fairly plain, except with an animal head design in the center. It has the appearence of a t-shirt.

-Early TerebiKun spoilers were posted by one 2ch user. The tagline used is as follows:
"Konna Hero Mitakotonai", "We've never seen heroes like these before!" The designs seem
to be closer to Kamen Rider than usual. A "four pointed" mask was noted.

Stay tuned for more rumors, and confirmed information/pics!

Juuouger Rumors/Musings from 2Chan and 2ch

Many, many rumors are bounding about Juuouger, because the possibilities are endless when dealing with pure animal series. An interesting (and realistic rumors) popped up on 2chan recently, giving options for each ranger color. Please take anything below with a grain of salt:

Rumors from 10/14:
Red- Gorilla or Elephant or Man (Lion is always a stand by as well)

Blue- Whale (Shark or Dolphin having been done before)

Yellow- Giraffe or Tiger

Pink- Flamingo

Green- Crocodile or Lizard

A new color was mentioned, "Gun Metal" and with it, a Bat mecha.

Possible Robo Names:

Rumors from 10/15:

-Collection Items for this year will be known as "KibaHolders" (Fang Holders)

-Juuouger will be a "follow-up series" to Gaoranger. 

-Pink will be a princess, known as the "JuuOujou" (Beast Princess.) 
Earlier, a rumor was listed that "astronaut" and "princess" were keywords of this series. 

More rumors to come.

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.)
