Toei has officially revealed the 47th Super Sentai series Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger and it looks promising. As the promotional poster have been released publicly, there’s a lot of new elements to be excited about from this upcoming Super Sentai series.
Let’s start off with the team, this is the first time in Super Sentai history to feature a purple ranger as part of the main team. Purple rangers are usually add-on rangers from previous Super Sentai series. The five-member Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger compose of Red, Blue, Yellow, Black and Purple ranger.
Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger features a Kamen Rider-ish fully insect theme Super Sentai series for the first time and one thing I noticed about King-Ohger is how unique and regal there customs are. Instead of the traditional spandex with just simple and minimal designs. King-Ohger features a body armor-like suits and they wear capes.
Ohsama Sentai King-ohger core members:
- KuwagaOhger – the red ranger with a stag beetle motif comes from Shogodam, the nation home to the guardian deities. This nation will be the source of the King-Ohger’s Mecha.
- TonboOhger – the blue ranger with a dragonfly motif came from a technologically advance civilization.
- KamakiriOhger – the yellow ranger with a mantis motif and the Queen of a land expert in arts and medicine.
- PapillionOhger – the purple ranger with a butterfly motif and represents a world of ice and snow.
- HachiOhger – the black ranger with a wasp motif leads a land of agriculture.
King-Ohger series revolve around the Five Rulers of different empires united together to battle against the main enemy Bugnarok, an Earth empire. It looks like Earthlings are the common enemy of this series.
The promotional poster shows us a snippet of their giant main mecha also. I personally love how detailed their mecha is and it reminds me of Gogo Sentai Boukenger’s mecha Daibouken. I hope, it will translate well on the toyline. According to Tokunation, King-ohger will have a various add-on mecha and their are rumors that it will feature a ten-piece combination alone during the first quarter of King-Ohger.
King-Ohgers uses Ohger Caliber and the Kings Weapon shield to transform into rangers.
Kamen Rider veterans will be involved in King-Ohger’s production. The upcoming series will be directed by Kazuya Kamihoriuchi, will be written by Minato Takano and former suit actor Jun Watanabe will be the series’ action director.
Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger will premiere on March 5 2023 replacing Avataro Sentai DonBrothers.
