Go-Kaiger Rumors: Will there be over 50 episodes? I REALLY hope so!

Epic fanart is epic.

Now, onto business! Given the many, MANY ways that Go-Kaiger is awesome, there have been rumors popping up that the series might run a bit longer than the usual 50 episode average, pushing the next series back to March 2012. Here’s what we have so far on this (as originally posted by dukemon22 on HJU):

  • Gokaiger is, without a doubt, the most celebrated anniversary series Toei has ever given us. With that, having it go a bit longer wouldn’t be out of the question.
  • Gokaiger merchandise is selling like crazy. Another month-or-so would give the first quarter of next year to Gokaiger. While I doubt we’d get anything too crazy, it would be a nice time to sell the rest of the ranger keys.
  • The copyright is late this year. While this is not really a tell-tale sign, it is interesting.
  • March is the time for versus movies to go on DVD (with january theatre release). They could have Gokaiger wrap up, and then do a blockbuster type finale in the theaters, introducing the new team, but have it  premiere in March.

Some of these rumors even state that future Go-Kaiger episodes could number in the mid 50’s before the series finally ends, and given the rather compelling arguement presented here, this could turn out to be a real possibility. Of course, for the time being, this is still just a rumor, so we might just end up with the usual number of episodes. Of course, I’m sure I wouldn’t be wrong in assuming that we would all like to see Go-Kaiger last as long as it possibly could. 🙂

New 2012 Sentai Rumor: Darn, my money was on “Cowboy” theme.

Well, it looks like we may have gotten a really substantial rumor from a very reliable source. Though I’m a little unsure about the theme. Anyway, dukemon22 has just posted a new rumored Sentai title for 2012 on his blog, and it looks like it’s going to be Yokai-themed. For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it’s basically a Japanese folk monster. Like I said, an odd choice if it’s true. Here’s what dukemon22 had to say:

百奇戦隊ヒデンジャー

“Hyaki Sentai Hidenjya”. (Lit. Hundred Stranges Taskforce Mystery Ranger)

“Hyaki” is a pun on Hyakki Yakou (100 Demon Night parade) from folklore.

The rangers are, as stated:

Red- Kyuubi (9 tailed fox)

Yellow- Nekobake/Bakeneko (a monster cat, not necessarily a two-tailed cat, which is a nekomata)

Blue- Yatagara/Yatagarasu (a 3-legged crow that appears in many Asian mythologies)

That would certainly be an unusual direction, assuming that it’s true. Not sure what they would do with it. I don’t know, but like I said, this is still just a rumor, a very VERY new rumor, and until something else comes out to either confirm or disprove it, we shouldn’t take this seriously yet.
