Toku Tuesday #11 – Sentai 2010 Rumors

It may be late, but it’s still Tuesday (as I write this)!  You know what that means: Toku Tuesday – Vol.1, Issue 11

Sentai 2010 Rumors

[SPOILER WARNING: If you don’t want any possible inside info on the next Super Sentai series, read no further. Nothing in the following post is official, but take no chances if you don’t like spoilers and all that jazz. I mean it; this is your only warning – take heed. Otherwise, prepare to speculate…]

Tenjo Sentai Goseiger

I’m actually too lazy to try to some up everything and whatnot, but as of the moment, the next Super Sentai title appears to be Tenjo Sentai Goseiger. I have no idea what that translates to, and honestly, the rumor mill at this point is a little hazy to me (mostly because, unlike last year, I’m not really following it =p ), but it seems there will be a card motif of some sort this time – most likely to go along with the current fad in arcade gaming in Japan. If you didn’t already know, there are card-based fighting games based on Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, this started in earnest with Decade‘s release as Decade uses cards as a battle mechanic and was an anniversary show.

Other key rumors to watch include:

*Seems to be another geometric shape motif, prominent in the visors (like Ohranger)

*The mecha will lie dormant in small cards and will be unlocked and enlarged for combat (like Go-Onger and Shinkenger)

*This may be another 3-man team with two additions to the main team to come soon after (a la Go-Onger)

*Actually, there may be multiple teams, good and evil – right out the gate

*The Pink ranger may actually be two-in-one like Vancuria (Magiranger)

Now, I stress that these are just RUMORS and are to be taken as such. This means that NOT ONE WORD OF THE ABOVE NOR ANY OF THE MATERIAL YOU MAY FIND IN THE FOLLOWING LINK IS OFFICIAL.  We won’t really know what next year’s show will be like until next year, but early rumors around this time revealed the basics of Den-O, Kiva, Decade, Go-Onger, and Shinkenger. While I don’t trust (and I advise you not to trust) these rumors, I do find the speculation entertaining and intriguing.  Here are some pics of the rumored designs (not official, obviously):

    The main reason I don’t buy it is because the suits look too decorative, what with thee shoulder pads and the ear things on the helmets.

      I agree. These designs look more like powered-up alternatives, like a cross between the Legendary and Super-Geki forms from Magiranger and Gekiranger. However, if this turns out to be true, the black ranger is gonna look sic for real =p.

      To me, these images look too much like the ones uncovered for Shinkenger and some of the plot stuff seems too convoluted, even for Super Sentai. Well see, I suppose…
