2015 Sentai: Shuriken Sentai Ninninger - News/Rumours

I'm sorry. But with a name like Ninninger, I can't help but think about THIS little guy.

I was reminded of Ninnin too. *ahem* Not that an upstanding, moral citizen such as myself would be familiar with any vintage, animated adult videos that he would be apart of. *cough* :confused2

And thus a sentai show I am actually going to give a few episodes... I kinda gave up on Sentai, because it's just not my cup of tea... but when you add ninjas, even I have to check that out!
 
While waiting for the official pics, you figure it out whether or not this pic below is real:

It's all over Twitter as far as I know.

I don't know of what to think about that but lately all the images we get are the actual ones. Remember how people thought that design images of Gaim, Toqger, and Drive were fake... They all turned out to be true...

Which ones, exactly? There *were* fake design images for ToQger (the ones with a weird beige design and only a splash of colour.) The real suits were unveiled with the first magazine scans, people just didn't *want* to believe they were real! I can't remember any designs leaking for Gaim either

If this is legit, I don't like the shape on the visor - it makes it look like the character's face has been crossed through (why? Are they dead?)

It's probably supposed to be a Shuriken. I think the design looks stupid, but I'd still say the same about the Toqger, so I don't put anything past Toei at this point.

That has got to be one of the ugliest fan made suits, I've seen in a while.

I don't recall the Toqger suits being true. As for Gaim, we got that early shot of him turned away. Many including myself, didn't believe it was real. But it turned out to be true and some people speculated that the orange armor was actually the fruit that forms it. Drive's design did turn out to be true. But I'm starting to think the person who posted the sketch either works for Toei or he really got a good look at Drive during filming because he nailed it, almost being 100% correct with the design. From the brace/belt and Tridoron, it looked almost exactly like it.

Other than the helmet (which makes him look like an enemy grunt), I think it's okay. The "Euro-monarch" black sash looks nice.

The awkward model and pose doesn't really feels like it's something a Toei staff would do.


I think it's fake.

There's no way they'd get Kingoo to play a Red again.
And I doubt Wizard's going to play a Sentai Blue.

And is that Akiba Yellow as White?

That thing's BS all over the place. (Unless this is just, like, someone's dream cast or something.)

Dukemon's latest as posted on Rangerboard:

This rumor just popped up on 2ch. As per usual, please take with a grain of salt:

-Ninninger will be a 3-person team to start

-Each of the core 3 rangers has 2 ranger colors they can change into. (This is the reasoning behind "Nin Nin" ger. We'd essentially be getting 6 ranger suits to start.)

-The 3 rangers will collect additional colors as the story progresses. (Likely giving way to new suits and powers.)


The idea is interesting, and does allow for some variation in how they present the ninjas to us.
It also makes sense, sequentially, from the past few series.

Given the source, I'm hoping it's fake. I don't want to see another three-man team (although this sounds just like something Toei would do: they like three-man teams because it's cheaper for them to make and allows them to shoehorn in more merchandising stuff with the addition of robots or quirky non-human characters, so using it with a popular theme means a hit is more likely and then they can justify doing three-man teams more often)

I like this idea, but it does sound like Kamen Rider is meeting Sentai, but as quoted, it makes sense if you look at ToQger, and also if you take into account the ninja theme of deceiving your enemies.

I can't agree with your statement about three members team and merchandising. Kyoryuger pretty much did the same thing with a team of 1498121 rangers (did I get the numbers right?). Bandai knows its ways to do the same whatever the theme of the show is since Gaoranger. And Go-Busters which was a 3 members team ended up with way less merchandising than any other shows in the past few years.

Also, I don't recall ONE show after Sun Vulcan with 3 members that didn't end up with 5 or 6 rangers. (even Liveman, where they decided to add them pretty much during the airing)
I don't think it cost them less. They don't do a cheap series because they don't wanna use money. They don't have money so they do a cheap show.

As for the quirky non-humans...hum I don't think this has anything to do with a three members team. Okay, most of them had this element in it, but well, Gingaman had a giant talking tree, Dekaranger had giant talking dog, Magiranger had a stupid Genie cat, Boukenger had a sword-warrior, Go-onger had talking robots, Shinkenger had a talking lamp-robot, Goseiger had a talking arcade game, and Kyoryuger had a talking bird.

It's just what Sentai have been for a few years...

While Kyoryuger's extra Rangers may not have been great (I would not even dignify Shinya or Ulshade with the label of "suit-stuffer") I still prefer them to a show full of wacky robots or gonks in place of humans


And Go-Busters which was a 3 members team ended up with way less merchandising than any other shows in the past few years.

And look how that worked out for sales!

That leaves two or three of the team to be treated as extras, though - they don't get as much attention or focus as the core team. It is different from writing a full team of five core members who all have to be present and accounted for throughout the series.


I don't think it cost them less. They don't do a cheap series because they don't wanna use money. They don't have money so they do a cheap show.

Kyoryu's toys were a hit though, and ToQger's are reportedly doing very well. I can't see them being that short of cash at the moment.

Most of those examples relate to only one or two characters, while Go-Busters had four Buddyroids and Gekiranger had seven ... oh I can't remember what Shafu and the gang were called now

Where did you read this?
I agree it sounds like BS. But Karin as a senshi is very possible in my mind.
