Every season of Super Sentai is in the same continuity.While they're officially out of continuity, the team-up movies almost always have both Sentai teams and both Big Bad groups have some connection to each other. (For instance, Doggie Kruger in Dekaranger and MagiMother in Magiranger both knowing the same restaurant owner). The connections are continuity by definition. Also, neither the Sentai nor the Big Bads have any problems with the "strange new world" they're suddenly thrust in during the team-up. They even form several cross-team attacks as if they planned them in advance. Clearly, they're all from the same continuity, just stretched out over several generations.
Each Super Sentai series does take place in a separate continuity (with rare exceptions, such as Denshi Sentai Denziman and Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan), but there is also a main "Sentai World" where every team has existed.This Sentai World is where the Vs. movies take place. Presumably it works like Super Robot Wars, changing various elements of the canon of the main series in order to reconcile them.
Doggie Kruger from Dekaranger is gay and fooling around with his officers.Despite having feelings for Swan-san, neither she nor Doggie show any hint of consummating their relationship. Doggie seems to tolerate the "puppy" treatment he's given by the rest of the SPD team (especially the guys) more than he does with Swan. And, there is so little Doggie/Swan-san fanwork out there that it defies Rule 34 (and when there is, it's just like every other Rule 34 fanwork out there: that is, Doggie as submissive BDSM plaything). Professional abstinence, or closeted slut puppy? The world may never know...
Power Rangers is a TV show in the Super Sentai universe, just like Super Sentai is for Power Rangers.Pretty straightforward here: Power Rangers Dino Thunder showed a Super Sentai TV show that the Rangers watched. By the Law of Universal Symmetry, there must be a Power Rangers show the Sentai watch.
The Five Tribes from Zyuranger are descended from stranded time travellers from the Timeranger era.It would explain how people could be alive in the Mesozoic era & why their "Guardian Deities" look suspiciously mechanical. A team of paleontologists & other scientists from approx. 3000 A.D. are sent back in time to study the local wildlife & geology & to bring back specimens, but their timeship crashes & leaves them stranded. They somehow manage to convert the ship's remains into a prehistoric animal-themed Combining Mecha (or, knowing how technology works in the Sentai-verse, it was always a combining mecha & they just made a few modifications) to protect themselves from hungry dinos & make the best of a bad situation. They live off the land & raise many children. After many generations, all record of their origin is lost, & the people begin worshiping the robots as gods.
The Dino Curry shop from Abaranger is an Inn Between the WorldsSpecifically, between the various Super Sentai continuities. Every season after that one has had the mentor to the team stop by there and meet each other. For all we know, a few Kamen Riders may eat there on occasion, too. By the time the Go-onger vs. Gekiranger team-up comes about, we'll probably find out that Miu and Hiroto had lunch with Miki over the latest training technology.
Sentai and the Space Sheriff Trilogy are in the same continuityIn Sunvulcan, the fugitive Inazuma Ginga is mentioned to have escaped from the Space Police and is hiding on Earth. Add to that its prequel Denjiman, where we get our first glimpse at Alternate Dimensions with the pocket universe the Vader Clan live in. While not as outlandish or large as Makuu Space and the Strange Dimension, it has some of the same properties such as the wild gravity and vomit-looking atmosphere.
Special Police Dekaranger is a branch of the Shadow ProclamationBoth of them are alien police forces whose officers are also responsible for executing criminals.
The "Ultimate Court at the End of the Universe" that tries the criminals in Dekaranger is composed of Phoenix Wright, Miles Edgeworth and the Judge.Think about it. The Court is always right and finds out the truth in an extremely short time. It's likely that the cast from Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney have been recruited by the Space Police and sent to an alternate dimension where three days (the maximum time allowed for a trial in Ace Attorney) are equivalent to the handful of seconds required for the Judgement of Alienizers. Possibly they've been turned into omniscient AIs or something in the process.
Go-on Gold is a shinigami"Break genkai" sounds suspiciously like a release phrase, doesn't it? Now, before you ask about his lack of sword, remember that only spiritually aware people would be able to see one.
Witch Bandora became Magiel and her father is Daimaou from KakurangerAs it turns out, before Bandora made her deal with Dai Satan, she was in fact the good daughter of Daimaou who wanted to not be like her evil father and rule Earth with a kind and just hand. One season later, Bandora became good and regained her powers as a witch, which explains Magiel. Gasha Dokuro and Witch Bandora, therefore, are siblings, and Kai is Daimaou's grandson.
Every other season will foreshadow the following year's Motif with at least one roboThe trend began with DaiShogun foreshadowing Shinkenger, and followed with Seaick GoseiGreat hinting at Gokaiger. Remember to pay attention to the mecha in 2012's Sentai.
Ryouga (AbareRed) and Ranru (AbareYellow) from Abaranger are secretly brother and sister, twins infact.I was taking some snaps of Super Sentai/Power Ranger images using my Nintendo DSI to test the Resemblance feature. I captured one picture of Ryouga and Ranru together and it came with "Siblings: 45%" and then captured another image and it said "Twins: 56%".
Super Sentai, and by extension, Power Rangers, take place in parallel universes in which Humanity has discovered the secret of reversing matter à la Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons.Think about it, every episode the monsters destroy tons of buildings and from what I've seen in Super Sentai, they attack and kill civilians. Logically, the city should have been destroyed in the first 20 episodes at least. In the first episode of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Captain Black completely destroys the Mysteron city, then the Mysterons suddenly bring it back again. It is also shown that they can bring dead people back to life.
the 40th super sentai
There will be a Super Sentai with monsters as the heroesthey could be good monsters disguised as humans.
The 42nd Super Sentai will be a sci-fi comedy.
A brief theory about Engine Sentai Go-onger.I think Sosuke was originally going to remain dead until the Grand Finale, and GP36 would have ended with Yogostein killed permanently by the G12. Then, Sosuke would be replaced by a girl (an idea they didn't use until Shinkenger) in the following episode, and then GP45 would have been played differently, with said new girl joining G3 Princess in place of Kegalesia (whose G3 Princess costume had red accents). They probably scrapped that idea due to popular demand, and tacked the last-minute Single-Stroke Battle between Sosuke and Yogostein onto the end of GP36.
The season after Gokaiger will follow the Three Plus Two rule.Think about it. Gaoranger and Boukenger were both, technically, anniversary seasons (both had the VS Super Sentai movies rather than usual team-up movies), and both were followed by seasons that used Three Plus Two (Hurricaneger, Shurikenger not withstanding, and Gekiranger, respectively), so it may very well be the same thing with Gokaiger, the only full-fledged anniversary season so far.
All of the seasons after Gokaiger will have a crossover episode with the previous season.
Timeranger's powers were originally made for another set of team.Said team also has Two Girls to a Team, just like most of the Sentai Series with Five-Man Band since Boukenger.
All the different dimensions existed in other Sentais are parts of the 11 Braneworlds in Engine Sentai Go-onger.Here are the lists of braneworlds:
Eventually, there will be sentai series whose team can interchange colour with one another.And that'll be another only time a male yellow ranger and female blue ranger appears.
Budget got short after DenzimanAs the result, we had 3 rangers instead of the usual 5 in Sun Vulcan, and as they don't have enough budget for the color green, there is a black ranger in Goggle V instead.
Crossover with the Ultra Series is on the way within the next few years.Well, now that we've got Kamen Rider and Metal Heroes crossovers underway, it's only logical that they keep going. And there's another long-running well-known Toku series to cross over with.
The Dairangers are Force-Sensitives.Their Ki powers are basically the Force, and one of their BGM tracks sounds suspiciously like the Imperial March.
The series after Gobusters will have the blue ranger femaleSince Akibaranger has one, other sentais could follow for consistency.
The next Sentai Series will feature Red as The Big Good (of its own series, not unlike Akaranger in Gokaiger) and Blue as The Hero instead.The Hero's either Blue or the color that would have otherwise fill in The Lancer role.
The 37th season will also be a celebration of the 20th anniversary of Power RangersAlthough the official confirmation will probably come during Autumn 2012, Toei has registered the trademark for Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger. If you pay attention, it sounds like an inversion of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger (which, in fact, should be more correctly spelled Jyuranger). And in any case, the title itself tells of a dinosaur motif. So, the 2013 season may be a Call Back to the first Super Sentai that was adapted into Power Rangers, and will air during the latter's 20th anniversary. Too much to be just coincidences!
Kyoryuger will be a very formulaic seasonNot dull or even bad, just quite unoriginal. Regardless of how you feel about it, Tokumei Sentai Go Busters at least tried something different; however, it hasn't sit well with Japanese audiences apparently, since by Summer 2012 the series has turned into a big ratings flop (it has recovered, but only thanks to Kamen Rider Wizard being now in the same programming block). Unless they want to try and do an even bigger shake-up to the classic Super Sentai formula, Toei will probably wanto to play safe with the next series to get the public back.
In a few years, the Super Sentai series will be put on hiatusWhile the ratings flop of Go-Busters may have been an isolated case, ratings for the various seasons have slowly dropped during the last decade. After so many years, these series may be getting stale for the Japanese public. Plus, it's hard to top Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and Super Hero Taisen now. Toei may decide to stop producing them (although they'd still appear in movies, TV specials and reruns of the most popular series, and not counting the ever-popular toys), and start them again at least five years later, refreshed. It worked with Kamen Rider, which was dormant during the 1990s, it can work for them. Plus, to fill the void, there are a lot of Metal Heroes that can be resurrected for the new generations, and it's already being done with Gavan after all.
Yellow has already been associated as a girl's color.
Either the series after Kyoryuger (38) or the one after that (39) will be a ninja team.If dinosaurs can do three series then ninjas will probably follow suit too.
Future Team Motifs
The next time a yellow ranger is male,He will be a Lovable Coward who absolutely wants to avoid going brawny.
The creators of Super Sentai will pull of a Take That concerning the sexist cries from the internetParticulary, the reason behind the lack of Kyoryu Yellow.
The 40th Super Sentai will feature a special tribute two-parter similar to the 999th and 1000th episode Milestone Celebration done by Kamen Rider OOO.Mission 21 of Go-Busters was the 1800th overall episode of Super Sentai, the remaining 29 episodes makes 1829 then as each Sentai lasts around 50 episodes Kyoryuger makes 1879, Sentai #38 makes 1929, Sentai #39 makes 1979, placing the 1999th and 2000th overall episodes of Super Sentai around the middle of Sentai #40 like OOO's milestone celebration.
There will be a Super Sentai based on Pokemon or Digimon
There will be a female Sixth RangerNot counting on Go-on silver since she could be either sixth/seventh.
The 38th season will have a cowboy motifNot only are cowboys a never-done-before action motif that would fit the 5 year pattern, it would also resume the trend of Production Foreshadowing with an early-run mecha formation (Kyoryuzin Western) in the same vein as Engine Daishogun foreshadowed Shinkenger, Tenkuu Shinkenoh foreshadowed Goseiger, and Seaick Gosei Great foreshadowed Gokaiger.
Ninjaman and Gunmazin are considered more mecha than heroes.That's why they are not in Gokaiger.
The creators are delibirately trying to get the kids used to male yellow rangers.This is shown in Kyoryuger, where they predicted male yellow to be seens as too feminine to work out with the sentai. As the result, they stealthily remind the audiences of male yellow poosibilities, including:
The 40th season will be a second season of GokaigerSure, it's unofficial, but Akibaranger did try the concept of a second season, even if it was mostly based on fan demand. Bonus points if the core five Gokaigers finally get their own Super Mode, or if we get a seventh Gokaiger.
