There is a good reason why Hiroyo's tattoo just disappeared.It was a reference to the similar thing with the silver Lightspeed Rescue ranger, who didn't exist in Kyūkyū Sentai Gogo V. Therefore, it disappeared because that plot point never happened in Sentai, and thus never was resolved.
The Akibarangers will cameo in the upcoming Kamen Rider x Super Sentai: Super Hero TaisenIn keeping with the Toei tradition of upcoming series making cameos in movies. Considering the subject of material of Akibaranger, it might even be a joke moment. With both debuting in April, it's a possibility.
The Akibarangers will, despite their title, eventually become official Super SentaiHumorous subject material aside, there may come a time when the Akibarangers will save the Earth in some fashion. In doing so, they'll be recognized as a Super Sentai on their own.
Akibaranger will make references, possibly even stabs, towards Kamen RiderReferencing the real life fandom and divide between the two shows.
Akibaranger, despite the blood and sexiness, will be Lighter and Softer in tone than Gobusters.
The Akibarangers will crossover with the current sentai Go-Busters, or at least make a cameo
The Moe Morphers (for want of a better name) use the power of daydreaming.Basically, the Moe Morphers force the users into Sentai themed group hallucination/daydream, where they believe they're actual Sentai fighting villains (which explains the sudden teleportation, random explosions and mook appearances, and how Akagi is actually right about a lot of things). Meanwhile, in the real world they're actually just being useful to the people around them (in the first episode they probably just cleaned the Sentai cafe and had a civil discussion with the vampire maids about health and safety regulations and how the owner is distressed about the direction they were taking the restaurant in). However, the Moe Morphers need a user that's a prolific daydreamer already, hence why Hasake picked the 3 people she did, and why she keeps going on about them having a great power. The fact that one of them daydreams about Super Sentai (and the character that forms the Moe Morpher/Magnum) is probably why he was picked to be the red Akibaranger: because in context his daydreaming would be the most "relevant" to the delusion.
Akibaranger will be Darker and EdgierWhy not?
The Sixth ranger will be a lesbianWho Does Not Like Men. Including Akiba Red, at first. Resulting in a Let's You and Him Fight. Now Red's harem is complete.
There will be yanderes in the show.
There will be a crossover with Kamen Rider G, as a parody of the Sentai tradition of VS movies
The Sixth Ranger will have an AfroIt already has molded hair and it would be awesome
This series will be a testbedThey will use the parody nature to hide the fact they are testing wilder ideas for designs.
Red is only The One Guy for nowWhich means another guy may come in down the line.
Viacom is going to try to get Saban to get it adapted for either Spike and/or Comedy CentralIt makes too much financial sense, and who else is going to air it?
Red will be only The One GuySomehow this will turn into a Harem Sentai. No really, all of the other characters introduced (one way or another) are female.
Former Sentai actors will appear in the show, but as themselves, rather than as their rangers.From the first promo (with Akiba Red running into a Go-Busters production meeting and having Maskman merchandise) it seems like in the Akibaranger world, Super Sentai is a TV show. So the Akibarangers could easily meet previous actors. It could be an opportunity to spoof Gokaiger, by having the Akibarangers expect to learn how to be a good Super Sentai from the previous actor but not get anywhere.
Red won't be The One Guy, but the next guy to be a ranger will be evil.
Another guy will be introduced, but get magically turned into a girl.
Saban will adapt this series into a Power Rangers series for preschoolHowever, they'll end up being bankrupt spending too much money on censoring all the inappropriate parts.
There will be an Evolving OP.Officially there's two singers credited for it, but one of them, who previously did the theme for Gaoranger, is barely audible over the chirpy female vocals - as the show goes on and Cerebus Syndrome kicks in, the volume for both vocals shift inversely, and the music changes from digital samples to brass and electric guitar, but the tempo stays the same, until the OP turns into a full-on Hot Blooded theme well worthy of being counted among Super Sentai.
One of the extra rangers will be a gaijin......who is a Power Rangers fanboy and only knows about Super Sentai because of Power Rangers. Because of this, he will mix up Power Rangers facts with Sentai, annoying Akiba Red.
Hiroyo is MarushinaAt least someone is making them imagine so realistically in Marushina.
The show will have a Gainax Ending.Seeing as how #11 became such a clusterfuck of epic proportions, I wouldn't be surprised in the least.
There's a Dream World that the villains try to take overThat's the place where the Akibarangers fight all along!
Unofficial Sentai will happen annuallyOP here Exactly What It Says on the Tin this is the first of a line of unofficial Sentai
The show will live up to the Bloodier, Sexier, and Edgier angle it built up to and hit Cerebus Syndrome
One episode will show one of the rangers watching Gobusters on TV.
Hakase will transform at one point.And become AkibaProfessor
Akiba yellow is actually a crossdresser.Don't ask why I just have a strange feeling they are gonna do this
Alternatively, Akiba Yellow is incredibly serious and businesslike when out of costume.
The Stema Corporation aren't the true villainsTowards the end, it'll be revealed that the Akibarangers' powers as well as the villains are all being generated by an evil force for it's own amusement. Even if the Stema Corporation are defeated, it'll simply create new villains, and if the Akibarangers refuse to fight it, it'll make new rangers to combat it (a parody of the longevity of Super Sentai). In the end, they must choose between saving the world for good and losing their powers, or remaining the Akibarangers and have to combat evil forever.
Before Super Hero TaisenIn a short waiting in line to see it
A Power Rangers actor will show up at one point
Marushina does not existEverytime she does things, it is usually having the Akibarangers transform and she just poofs out when the enemy is defeated. Therefore, Marushina is a figment of the Akibarangers' delusions and doesn't exist in real life. Which means, there's nobody who are thinking to make Akihabara the second Shibuya, Marushina exists, plots and whatever because in such delusions of a hero, a villain is needed, and the plan to make Akihabara the next Shibuya was merely a personification of the fears of Nobuo, Mitsuki and Yumeria to be shunned by the public if their otaku style were to be discovered in public... especially Shibuya.
Malshina does actually exist, and knows/worked with Hiroyo in the pastThe two of them worked on the Grand Delusion project together, but for some reason the two of them went their separate ways before it was complete with Malshina wanting to use it for evil (or just plain sell out, which explains why her mooks are Corporate Drones) and Hiroyo wanting to use it for good/altruistic purposes (hence why she seemed so convincing when she asked Akagi if he wanted to protect the world, whereas her saying she made it for no real reason seemed a bit... odd). Both of them tried to finish it on their own, and by coincidence managed to finish around the same time, albeit with different devices, leading to the events of the series.
This story, of all things, will have An AesopThe aesop being: "You can turn your delusions into reality... if you try hard, and not constantly delude yourself." As of the moment, all the Akibarangers can only delude themselves, but then there will be a point that the crisis extends to real life and they managed to bring what they deluded into real life and as Hiroyo stated, 'Be a better person'.
Hakase is going to use the Akibarangers for her own purposesShe is planning to control them through delusions to do something for her. Like robbing banks.
If Akibarangers have ranger keysWhen Gokai Blue becomes, Akiba Blue, the helmet retains, but the body suit will be similar to Akiba Red, sans the polar bear print on the back of the pants.
Mitsuki represents the normal sentai fans watching AkibarangersBasically, she represents the fans who have no idea what is going on in Akibarangers.
The Itasha Robo will only work when the Sixth Ranger comesHakase said that they don't have enough delusional power to make it useful, so many a person or two might make it functional, as the delusions are channeled through the Akibarangers.
Akibaranger Ranger Keys will show up in Gokaiger Vs Go-Busters......or some other Super Sentai movie involving the Gokaiger, thus allowing the Unoffical Sentai to cameo as a Gokai Change. No in-verse explanation will be given for this whatsover, but an Akibaranger Ranger Key set will coincedentially be available for purchase, possibly as a Tamashii Web Exclusive.
The Stema Corporation will somehow break out of the Akibarangers' delusions and appear in the real world.
There won't be a Sixth Ranger.This show is subverting all the tropes, after all...
Moe Moe Z-Cune will get her own show.Because why not?
Red Hawk will appear in an episode.This might sound like a completely out of left field WMG... unless you look at the release dates for this summer's SH Figuarts. The Akibarangers' figures and Deka Red's were announced for release around the same time, and Deka Red just happens to come with the Deka Wapper that Akiba Red used. And in the months after that, Bouken Red will be released as well... and so will Red Hawk. This certainly can't be a coincidence.
The series will end with a Cease and Desist order from Toei given to the Akibarangers.Because it would be the perfect way to end the series.
The series will end with the making of the series itself.Perhaps the Akibarangers will make one final attempt at being made official, and will be met with a response from the executives along the lines of "well, we can't make you the next Sentai for kids, but how about we make a show for adults?"
There will be a Digital Piracy Is Evil plot.Featuring a Ruthless Modern Pirate Monster of the Week and a Gokaiger or Hurricanger cameo.
Akibaranger exists in the Z-Cune Aoi universe.Aoi herself will be shown at some point with the three Akibaranger on a keychain.
The three actors playing the Akibaranger will go on to play three of...whatever the 37th Super Sentai is called...thus giving the Akibaranger their dream (kind of) in a way that doesn't actually require Japanese kids to see Akibaranger.
Mitsuki is The MoleOr at least, she's been working with Hiroyo since the beginning; we didn't see her being recruited, and she gave a rather flimsy excuse for sticking around in #2.
The Akibarangers are test subjects for a new productThe Moe Moe Z-Cune are prototypes for a new form entertainment, a way of making virtual reality through brain waves. It could easily become the most immersive form of entertainment ever, as well as making telepathy possible eventually. However, the technology is still being tested. Among other things, one needs to determine whether delusions can be dangerous in and of themselves, whether they can leave long term damage, and whether they can cause addiction.
Should Akibaranger be adapted, it will be as a Power Rangers RPM sequel.Think about it. The season RPM was made from was insanely goofy, but RPM has a Darker and Edgier After the End story going on. Of course, that would require a lot of original footage...
Possible future episode parodiesVery well, tropers. Share to us what would be a premise of episode in Akibaranger!
Nobuo is Gai's father
Members of AKB48 will make a cameo at some point.It's set in Akibahara, after all. Minami Takahashi may be the most likely choice, especially if they do an episode where NinjaRed appears, due to her childhood heroes being the Kakuranger. Sixth Ranger will start off working for the bad guys, but display obvious hints that (s)he can be redeemed. Eventually he'll drop his weapon and declare he doesn't want to fight any more, at which point a Genre Blind Blue will shoot him.
The fourth ranger will be purpleThe purple ranger on the pictures in the classroom in the movie episode will be the team's sixth (fourth) ranger. Make My Monster Grow, causing Akiba Red to complain they don't have one. Either Itashar Robo will dock with said Mecha to power it up somehow, or they get their own Humongous Mecha shortly afterwards. This will also allow them to use the typical people in rubber suits as opposed to full CGI models, which they can parody.
The additional rangers will have powers stemming from a different source and be an "offical Sentai"Now that the battle has entered the real world, the JSDF or some other group there will create their own duo of Rangers to face the monsters, who are "real" and don't use the delusion power. They will treat the Akibarangers as vigilantes while they themselves are "offical" and recognized by the government/Toei.
An official version of Akibaranger will be the next sentai seriesAkibaranger will end with the heroes being hired to play themselves in an official series based off their adventures. It will have no in story connection and can be watched separately, being more in line with a true Sentai series, but have the same actors, with the characters credited as the actors. It'd be a nice way to give the series an Earn Your Happy Ending ending.
Sayaka is an Otaku, too.She's just much better at hiding it than the Akibarangers.
Sayaka will be the fourth-Sixth RangerIn relation to the above theory.
If an American version is madeLewis Lovhaug will play Nobuo's American counterpart.
Malshina is Hiroyo's father's creation.It's so obvious.
Expansion to the above: Hiroyo's father created Malshina to be his waifuShe didn't like being an object one bit and is doing something to get an identity for herself.
The transformation trinkets for the additional Akibarangers' will be based on Seed Jeanne from Nijiyome Academy Z-Cune Aoi.They would be recruited by Malshina as her Evil Knockoff versions to fight the originals in order to build up delusion power and keep them busy but they later pull a Heel Face Turn and join up with the original 3.
Akibaranger will have about 12 episodes
Akibaranger will have more than 12 episodes
Hakase will be the Sixth RangerKozkoz acts as Mission Control in episode 8, so we know that Hakase doesn't have to be the one doing that job. With the revelation that Malshina was created by her father, maybe she'll want to do something about that?
Hakase's father is the Big BadAnd Malshina appeared as part of his plot to get revenge on the Aoi studio for letting him go.
Doctor Z will be a Knight of Cerebus.
Yumeria's mom is just one of several Chekhov's Gunmen......who return for the last episode, where an overload of delusion power from every civilian in Akihabara supporting our heroes by watching them in action causes damn near every Red ranger and then some to appear alongside our heroes. Bonus points if Kozkoz is dressed as a mecha instead.
Their delusional powers will recreate the Legend WarsSimilar to above, but the delusional powers cause everyone to become a Sentai member. How this goes down is unknown. Either they make it a farce and not show it, or go with it and show it.
The crossover to reality is a mass delusionRemember the MMZ-01's ability to broadcast brainwaves? It's actually been getting stronger due to the Akibarangers' delusion power, and it currently affects the entirety of Akihabara, with the potential to affect the whole world. Unlike the usual delusion, they're well blended with reality, making things like everyday functioning coexist with delusional elements. This would mean that the sign gun, for example, not only didn't transform, but was never blown away from where it hung to begin. Being the MMZ-01 an electronic device, it would also cover the photos of the Akibarangers in action; a traditional camera would've led to a Tomato Surprise, but such device is practically nonexistant in the electronic town of Akihabara.
The entire plot is in-universe Viral Marketing.
Both Hakase and Sayaka are gonna become AkibarangersAnd they will have a long In the Name of the Moon speech
All of the other Sentai teams had their start via Grand DelusionIn-universe, the actors that played the other Sentai teams were recruited and trained through Grand Delusion. The Akibarangers were the first to have theirs come to real life.
Doctor Z is not actually a cyborg. He's just wearing a costume.To go with the Showa-era vibe, his robotic parts have a rubbery, cheap-looking vibe to them. This is intentional. It's all just a costume that he made himself in order to look more intimidating.
The show was created in part because of restrictions on GokaigerWhile Gokaiger reffed just about every last sentai member ever, there were things the show couldn't do, lampshading its core audience could not deal with, fourth wall breaking that could have gone too far. This troper believes Gokaiger was forced by its premise of respectful homage to bypass a lot of good jokes that Akibaranger has become the recipient of.
Nobuo will transform without the Moe MagnumIn the preview for Ep 11 the new guy takes Nobuos place as Akiba Red and his Moe Magnum, and since he's the man nerdy enough to break down the wall between reality and delusion he will transform on his own.
The Akibarangers will somehow create The universe of the Tenth Pretty Cure Series through a Heroic Sacrifice of their UniverseHakaze is Transformed into Aoi to represent Aoi in the Seven Magical Girl Series that have been bonded to the Fused Universe of Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and Gundam.
Takuma is secretly evil or working with the villainsThis guy seems almost too good to be true. Not to mention that he comes in with a trumpet when he is declared the next Akibared. What other red-clad character do we know that carries a trumpet in recent Sentai History?
The Pentagon is a trapHave we forgotten Malshina's ability to mimic other people?
The real mastermind behind this came from the delusion worldIts/His/Her power includes turning a reality into a TV show.
Pentagon is Word Of God...Huh? Executive Meddling on his own show; it would seem strange that those responsible for creating that part of the plot would then go ahead and do it to the show they're working on themselves. There's also the fact that the music in episode 11 is always played as sympathetic to Nobuo and Malshina's efforts to fix things. And it seems weird to have the last episode of a show be a Recap Episode that doesn't do anything for the story. Thus, it's possible that the staff members who liked the original plan for the show will pull a Heel Face Turn and ally themselves with the Akibarangers, giving them another season.
The original Akibarangers will become "villains" in the second season (while really trying to be good guys).In episode 12, the Akibarangers end up trying to lose their final battle, and thus keep the villains around, in order to keep the story going. It's not a huge logical leap from doing that to the realization that what they really need to do to continue the story is become the new villains. Since Malshina's still around at the end, and was already trying to work with them to find a way to stop Toei's meddling, they could start working for her. Of course, there would be a new Akibaranger team; they, like Takuma, would be fully controlled by Toei and unable to be made aware of the fourth wall. The story would continue to center on the original Akibarangers, now the "Stemarangers", as they fought against the new Akibarangers to keep the heroes from winning and ending the show (as well as possibly Hiroyo, who'd be forced to act as the mentor to the new Akibarangers, and might actually be trying to sabotage their efforts from the inside). Their transformation devices would of course be based on Seed Jeanne from Z-Cune Aoi.
The real finale will actually be...A televised live show from Toei studios. The Akibarangers break through the fourth wall before fighting Saburo Hatte himself, who will command monsters created by a writer standing nearby which instantly enter the real world. The Akibarangers will get beatdown, then, Akiba Red realizes that this is when the Heroic Second Wind kicks in and they encourage the crowd to cheer for them, then proceed to defeat the monsters until the writer runs out of ideas for monsters and they get their hands on Saburo. The president of Toei will then show up, chew Saburo out for messing up the show so badly, and tell the Akibarangers that, due to the support of the crowd, he's been convinced to make them canon to sentai as a whole, thus preventing their show from ending. If they don't do this, someone please write a fanfic of it!
Season 2 will start out the same as season 1, but the characters will make different decisions to turn the story in a different direction.All the talk of "flags" in the show might make one think of a Visual Novel. And of course visual novels are known for having multiple paths and endings that you have to play the game multiple times to get. Not to mention that the letter they get from the show's creators in the 13th episode says they would learn what they did wrong by watching the recap. Maybe they got the "bad ending" the first time around.
Since episode 9 the MMZ-01 has been a Magic FeatherThat's when they first transformed in the real world, based solely on Nobuo's will power. So I believe that in the real world the MMZ-01 is a Magic Feather for said will.
Season 2 episode 1 will start out exactly the same as Season 1 episode 1But after an episode to an episode and a half they'll realize they've been reset and the story will go into the true new story
There will be no second season.If there is a new Unofficial Sentai, it'll involve a completely different story, thematic, and characters.
The live show aka episode 14 is CannonIf there's a second season the'll have the 3 new Official Powers already
After becoming good, Dr. Z re-nicknamed himself as "Dr. ZZ".Just for the Actor Allusion.
A Power Rangers Adaption if any will be a MovieWell a Trilogy anyway.
A second season will acknowledge..As said above, the episode 14 events will be acknowledged even if just in the form of the 3 new weapons (Checkker Flag, Big Pen and Microphone), but also make reference to the joke movie 'Akibaranger the Movie: Treasure of the Maid Empire" as having happened.
The second season will bring in a few Sentai tropes that were missed.
In season two, the Akibarangers will have control of their own destiny.They're now aware of their nature, thus the execs can't manipulate them directly anymore, so they'll stop trying and let them do what they want, since unpredictable results will be good ratings.
In season 2, a villain will attempt to conquer reality... by destroying the third dimension, leaving us in a two-D world.The Akibarangers will have to reach a whole new level of delusion in order to maintain the boundary between 2-D and 3-D... possibly resulting in an In-Universe crossover with Aoi-tan. And it will be played for as much epic as possible.
The Kyoryuger Inordinate Power is a pair of dancing shoes... metal dancing shows, given to Akiba Yellow. Admittedly, it may be the next Stage Show before this becomes possible.
ŠNa will become Akiba Purple in season twoThe trailer for season two showed her using one of the henshin devices, and she may start off evil, then turn good (like many other 6th Rangers). Of course, it will be mentioned the weirdness of her being 6th Ranger, even though she is 4th. Bonus points if someone needs to reference Go-On Silver if it is said ŠNa is the first female 6th Ranger.
Someone will comment on the new actor for Akiba BlueEither by saying she's the same Mitsuki having gone to a "training camp" or was in an accident that required surgery, or having Kozkoz trying to point out that she's different now but everyone else not noticing.
Kiba Ranger will become the White Akibaranger.If only for the pun potential.
The plot of season 2 will be trying to make Akibaranger good enough for a third seasonTrying to delay the ending didn't work, so this time the Akibarangers will try to make the show so good that they get a third season.
The Akibarangers' world is actually a delusion world of the world that Hatte Saburo inhabits.He actually discovered the principles behind the Moe Moe Z-cune and used them to make a semi-autonomous world that he could use to make TV shows more easily, testing it out with a show spoofing Super Sentai so that any irregularities could be passed off as jokes. He included the delusion world concept as Fiction As Cover Up. Of course, what Hatte Saburo doesn't realize is that his own world is also a delusion world of an even higher-level reality (after all, Hatte Saburo isn't a real person, but a pseudonym for the Toei staff). It's delusions all the way up!
The retconned plot of Season Tsuu is going to be noticedMore likely Hatte Saburo decided to set the show as diverging before the delusion breaking stuff in Episode 7 of the original so that it would rob the Akibarangers of their power to change in reality and their awareness of the fourth wall. However not only is it badly done, but eventually this is going to break down all because of Nobou. He was the first to start noticing this in the first season, and its unlikely a Cosmic Retcon will keep him down for long. This may or may not result in the actress' for Akiba Blue switching again. Alternatively it will be either the new Akiba Blue or Maalshina who figures it out.
Moya Moya Z-Cune Aoi is the main villain of the Z-Cune Aoi Z filmGiven the fact that Z-Cune Aoi already has an evil, or at least rival, Aoi in the form of Seed-Jeanne, there is no good reason, beyond sculpting issues, to just make the evil MMZ-00 just a generic black repaint. If she'll exist as an actual character though...
The third Goraiger is AkinaGeneral Pain did say he was saving it for something special and was clearly teaching her about Sentai. Then, on her side, she did say that she would never let Luna get ahead of her, so Pain might have told her that Luna is Akiba Blue.
