Hikonin Sentai AkibaRanger - a second Super Sentai for 2012

Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters is the official 36th Super Sentai Series, but TOEI decided to launch another Super Sentai series named Hikonin Sentai AkibaRanger (Litteraly : Unofficial Squadron).

This "Unofficial Squadron" is not part of the official line of Super Sentai but is still called a Super Sentai anyway. Consider it an "EX Super Sentai".

AkibaRanger will tell the story of three young people (a boy and two girls according to the picture) being part of an otaku club and living in the new "Electric-Town" Akihabara. They will have to fight a mysterious malevolent entity that swore to conquer Earth with cool gadgets created by a brilliant genius.

The series starts in april 2012 but no actor has been announced or rumored yet.

BANDAI also announced a toyline for this series.

That's cute, the sign on the bottom is designed to look like subway signs like the ones you see in Densha Otoko

I will say it now, it is a parody of the genre.

A full blown pisstake?

Carranger was fantastic as parodying sentai, so hopefully this is good.

Looks to be really good so far. Would I be correct in assuming that you guys will be subbing this, too?

I'd love to see TV-Nihon sub this series. It looks rather interesting.

So, apparently Tamashii Nations has unveiled the hero costumes for this series. They're pretty... interesting.

Seems to me three kids struggling their teenage life at the same time protecting the world from the invaders. Oh man, (besides expectations left by Gokiager) another competition for Go-buster :mrgreen: .

Super Sentai shows have a glorious tradition that has been going for 36 years. But in its shadow there's a pile of discarded material, wild delusions and ulterior motives, which have been supporting the toku series without ever having the chance to actually shine in the open. And now that tremendous chaotic power has finally burst out.
Its name is “Unauthorized Squadron Akiba Rangers”!

The main characters are three dwellers of the depths of the enthusiast gathering computer district, who inadvertently discovered the wicked existence threatening their town. Armed with the super equipment developed by the achingly beautiful and brilliant professor, they set out to destroy evil and protect their Holy Land of Akiba.... Or that's the pretense, anyway.

Adding some new blood and abandoning the taboos and restrictions of the sentai genre, this is a forbidden reverse sentai series meant for the adult core group.

...Good kids, stay away from this show. Got it?

Descriptions of our heroes:
Red: A-Boy. Shy guy(?). Probably DT(?)
Blue: Black Long-haired princess. Small tits
Yellow: Brown haired nuko(?)-type. Big tits
Professor: Sexy big sister. Loves mischief. Glasses


Apparently no under-15s are allowed to attend the preview screening, according to the article on the official site.

Colour me interested, having a series less trope-laden and geared more towards adults could be a breath of fresh air. Hopefully 'adult' doesn't mean just tit-jokes and smut, I don't want this to become Torchwood series 1. Having a sentai series aimed at nerdy adults like me could be pretty fun if done right!
