My idea for a new Super Sentai Season

Post by FangTrigger » Sat May 13, 2017 4:02 pm

I've been cradling this idea for awhile and I wanted to run it by you guys since pretty much all of us are here because we are tokusatsu fans.

As we know, Kyuuranger has (currently) 11 members all on the same team and more on the way (and I'm not spoiler tagging that because it's just part of the Super Sentai Formula), so I wanted to expand on that idea.

What if we have a Super Sentai Series with two different Sentai Teams? Like, we have the five 'good' sentai members, then five 'bad' sentai members, and then the generic bad guys?

Like, both Sentai's fight for their own ideals (one for Justice and all that jazz, the others personal gain or because the bad guys sign their paychecks,) but are also unknowingly being manipulated by the Crime Syndicate/Bad Guys to fight each other?

That's not a bad idea. It certainly seems more promising than have 11 interchangeable catchphrases running around and being bland and pointless.

You could have the teams motives less black an white. Like one is some kind of law enforcement agency and the other are vigilantes or some such.

They don't get their shit together until episode 33 and thats when all 10 robots combine together to form something that isn't a clusterfuck.

Is something like that even possible?

I'm sure with correct engineering it's possible. You'd have to have it so it's not just torso + 4 limbs for each of them, which wouldn't happen with current Bandai.

Remember when we thought G20 was a clusterfuck and Sentai couldn't possibly top it or get more ridiculous?

Resorting to robot backpacking on wheels 12 episodes in is not a good sign.

I took this post and ran with it. This is what I have so far:

- There are three different factions (Samurai/Police Sentai, Ninja/Ronin/Vigilante Sentai, and a Kaiju faction.

- Faction Members will change. Some may outright die, or just betray their team.

Amen.

I'm thinking like a Zoids Fuzors style combination.

Title: Cyberspace/Security Sentai [K0HAKU]

Post by FangTrigger » Wed Sep 06, 2017 6:02 am

Finally settled on a name for this.

Here's a rough synopsis:
It's the year 2053.
Humanity has stretched the planets resources thin with famine, overpopulation and war when a science experiment gone wrong breaks down the barrier between the physical and digital world. In this new era of technology, programers are reviered as God's and coding are their magic/miracles (with Bitcoin as the new currency) However, with this new age comes new dangers as well. Rogue hackers out to make a quick buck using malicious programs and Computer Viruses that have gained physical form resembling that of Kaiju and other mythical creatures, wreak havock on both planes of existence.
To combat this new threat, the world's top governments and cyber security companies merged to form (White Hat Samurai Sentai/Task Force) a group dedicated to preserving law, order, and net neutrality for all.

There will be three fractions:

-(White Hat Samurai Sentai)
-[K0HAKU] (Ninja/Rounin Grey Hat Sentai)
-Web Mafia (Bad Guys)

The Samurai will start off with 5 team members while [K0HAKU] starts off with 3.

Motifs will vary depending on the member (and whatever I feel works) and their programming skills.

Alliances WILL CHANGE as the series progresses, so a member that starts out on one team may switch sides or even get killed off, so be careful who you get attached to!

There's also an sub plot about programs having life/'souls'/free will which will cause problems for each side in some way shape or form.

That's all I can say for now (everything else would spoil a major plot point and we can't have that now can we?)

Let me know what your thoughts are.

OH MY GOD

Did you time-travel to the future or something?

My bad for noticing this only when Lupinranger VS Patranger is about to end
