    Default 2017 Super Sentai Rumors thread

    It's started. First rumor is a time based sentai

    Granted. Once in a blue moon it's on the mark and we get something like Kyoryuger when the trademark was revealed on September 5th

    Here's what I've seen on 2ch. Please use your grains of salt, and if you are reposting this anywhere else, please IDENTIFY IT AS A RUMOR.

    -The Villains of Sentai 2017 will "eat time."

    -The collectible will be "clocks."

    Previous discussion on the Japanese boards hinted at Time Bokan references for the next sentai, but as we are always talking about a bug sentai, I didn't post it.

    If the reference in question was "Time" itself, then it's a little bit more interesting.

    So what do we think? Are we ready for another time-based series. Maybe one this time that actually has time travel more than a few times?


    As with the pattern after an anniversary season there's usually three rangers

    Past, Present and future?


    -There's definitely going to be a dinosaur in the series somewhere

    -Have the 6th ranger be from the future?

    Mirai(Future) Ranger?

    Miraiger?


    -Have prehistoric ranger. The Dino Charge comparisons would run wild


    Also the suits would have a time limit. Since the suits don't originate from the time period they are in.

    If this is true, expect the transformation device to be some kind of clock/watch

    This could be a pretty cool homage to Ultraman. Though the time limit would need to be such that it allows the rangers to transform multiple times and episode.

    Either way, sounds interesting. It's still just a tad bit too early, but we're close to the copyright dates. I wouldn't expect much time travel though, Toei doesn't have a ton of sets that could double as period locations beyond feudal Japan.

    They made it work with Den-O. Just have them travel no further back than 15 years ago (except for the movie where they go to the Edo period).

    I don't buy this rumor one bit. Clocks just do not sound very marketable as a toy gimmick. And I don't know if Toei/Bandai will want to do another time-based Sentai after how badly Timeranger failed.
    Read my blog! It's still young, so please be kind:

    I have two reactions.

    1) This sounds like BS. Let's remember this rumor when 2017's car-themed Kuruma Sentai Gekisouger is revealed.

    2) If it isn't BS, this sounds like Yasuko "I like to use time-travel to mask my bad writing choices" Kobayashi. Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

    But fruit padlocks did!?!? You could probably come up with more for a clock-themed toy than you can with a shuriken. (How boring are those Ninninger shuriken?)

    And I don't know if Toei/Bandai will want to do another time-based Sentai after how badly Timeranger failed.
    Turboranger was an all around flop, but that didn't stop Toei from doing another car show just seven years later. (And it didn't stop Toei from doing fantasy-themed Sentai.) Toei probably feels there's been enough distance from Timeranger. Besides, time-travel is such an overused and killed device in sci-fi for them not to try out again. Timeranger hardly put to use any of the interesting things you can do with time-travel stories, anyway.

    And Timeranger might not have moved toys, but it's a cult favorite, so Toei was bound to go and strip some of that goodwill.

    Yokai Watch is doing pretty well and I could them doing watches for the clock gimmick if the rumor is true.

    I legit saw a commercial for that the other night had no idea it was an actual show.

    Or they could go the Mighty Magiswords route and have different attachments on the henshin device for each time period

    It's been the biggest property in Japan for a few years now, even unseating Pokemon in certain instances. The show's first ending theme had a dance that became a huge craze. (Ninninger's dance was created by the same choreographer)

    I'm not sure I can see that. Everything about Green so far suggests she's a super-cutesy type, and Miyahara doesn't have the right "look" for that. This is probably why she doesn't do so much of it in her gravure work (from what I've seen.) Like how you probably wouldn't cast the actress of Ran from Gekiranger as Houka Ozu for instance
