I just hope the 6th ranger is not gold or silver. I'm so sick of those two colors always being used for 6th rangers and it been like that since Gaoranger in 2001.

I've seen people talking about a rumor that has Sonny Chiba's son, Mackenyu, in the role of Red. I don't know much of anything about him, and he's a bit younger than I think Reds should be (18), but...Sonny frickin' Chiba's son! I'd figure someone like that would think they were above toku, though.

Sonny Chiba in his youth wasn't above doing toku (Gavan) - mostly because of Kenji Oba. But it can't see his son in this, except if a family friend (hint: Oba) is the mentor.

But i would love to have Nakamura back, I just can't see him as being part of the main team.
Honestly, I thought they would spare him for the 6th senshi role.

My guess for this years suit actors are:
Red: Yasuhiro Takeuchi
Blue: Yoshifumi Oshikawa (Which would fit if Nakamura is blue)
Yellow: Masashi Takada
White: Mizuho Nogawa
Pink: Ryoko Gomi

Nakamura as Blue would be AWESOME! Sign me up for that! :castlerock:
I really liked him as Yuto in Den-O and it would be awesome to see him in sentai.

It's become more of a trend since Go-Onger.

Picture this!!

That cast that was put up is about 80% fake in my eyes 'cause of these reasons:

1-Filming; filming doesn't usually start until after we get the toy information.
2-Experience; usually the cast selected each year have little to no acting experience with the exception of 1 or maybe 2 cast members

Another reason why I believe this is fake is because both girls look almost alike & one of them is way over the age limit (female leads are usually 23 years old or younger)

But, there may be some truth on 1 since Mario Kuroba has been rumored since last month. Also, keep this in mind, Mario was the 2010 JUNON Super Boy Runner-up to Taikou Kattono who is now in KR Drive. Would it be fantastic to have Super Hero Time with the two 2010 competitors competing on their own show to see which show is better? Think about that while i start looking into casting rumors AFTER the Baseball Winter Meetings next week. Till then, everyone. BYE

1 more thing here's Makkenryu's (aka Sonny Chiba's son) profile.

And here's the JUNON 2010 link: Just click here

Precisely, ChanNaka retired from the entertainment industry back in 2012 due to continuing health problems relating to a back injury. but earlier this year announced his return with a new agency. (which is also when he debuted his new facial hair)
Yeah that's why that one seems unlikely to me. In his 'first career' he was in one of those male idol groups that tokus shows love to recruit from, and IIRC when they announced his retirement they specifically mentioned that he couldn't do any dancing due to his injury. I doubt he's going to want to start his 'second career' by doing a show filled with action scenes where he risks taking a knock and undoing all his recovery.

Maybe I'm reading into it too much but based on helmet designs I'd say blue is likely to be the skilled guy, and yellow is more likely to be the goofball guy.

yeah, Hurricanger and Kakuranger series had the yellow as the goofy character so I would appreciate that continuing if only because I would find it funny that my favorites from all 3 ninja series ended up being the same color

Don't forget his brother, Jiro Chiba. If Sonny had ever been in Toku (I swear, I remember him making a cameo somewhere), I would have attributed it to his brother being big in it.

Hey, I'm a huge Sonny Chiba fan -- AFAIC, toku would be in a sorrier state without him and his Japan Action Club -- but he was considered a get for Gavan, and only appeared briefly. (Like, an episode and a half.) Chiba, his brother, his pupils have all done something toku at one point, but Chiba's reached a certain level of fame, of showbiz royalty, and I could see a scenario where his son, even at the start of his career, might not want to be a regular on a toku show.

That is...a very beautiful blurred image. White's head looks more oval at this angle, which is good.

Is it safe to assume that one of them might be green from the corner of the picture? There's nothing there, I'm just referring to the green background & it's apparently on the Sentai side of the magazine.

Although, I can clearly tell from the Megazord that there's a blue & yellow in there. (mecha pieces behind each shoulder.)

Isn't it Drive's Technique form? Maybe a weapon? There's his symbol just at the left, and that little symbol on the gun (?) seems like Drive's as well.

Yesss. That metallic details we've been missing for the past two series. Finally they decide to make it look like a mecha rather than... a giant-sized toy.

Mecha reminds me way too much of Daikai Shinken Oh. Is too much to have Mecha like the Kakuranger or Hurricanger designs again???

Collectible items this year are called Shinobi Shuriken

Like the Hiden Disk in Shinkenger, the heroes set them on the weapon, and rotate them to transform, use their special techniques and summon the Otomonin (the robots)

The Shinobi Shuriken have sound gimmick by themselves.
Transformable Shinobi Shuriken also have LED lights.
You can remove the blade and they can change to make the heads of the robot.

>Late March release

>>Rotating super ninpô Goton (5 tons) Shinobi Shuriken
>> Otomo Shinobi collection series 01 Shinobimaru

So apparently the information comes from this man's site who already got the retailers catalog. Information to take with a grain of salt.
I'm just translating what I'm reading. It seems that this year motif for the robots is red with its main human motif robot, ala Ryuseioh, and then other robots being either animals or vehicles. Even on 2ch, people are wondering what is wrong with the mix of a train and a dog, and what to heck does a ufo has to do with ninjas. But we can all remember the rangers transforming into toy jets or tanks in Hurricaneger and Kakuranger so why not?

Well, I'm looking forward to this explanation, though this is coming from the same company(s) who thought a megaphone would be a weapon befitting a ninja, and a very conspicuous giant green helicopter a good mech for another ninja. Screw logical thematic consistencies. Let's embrace the madness.
