So the cast of the new super sentai was recently confirmed. Let’s take a look, shall we?
According to the forum sites (image stolen from rangerboard by thieving bloody pirates!), the cast is as follows:
- Go-KaiRed will be played by Ozawa Ryota
- Go-KaiBlue will be played by Yamada Yuuki
- Go-KaiGreen will be played by Shimizu Kazuki
- Go-KaiYellow will be played by Ichimichi Mao
- Go-KaiPink will be played by Koike Yui
This does seem to be the final confirmed cast, but this is still in the realm of internet rumors. There really is no way of telling until they start to promote the new series. But most everyone agrees that this will be the final official cast. Personally, I can’t wait until the annual press conference to see if this is real.
Now there are still other rumors about the series, but most of them are unconfirmed. The two biggest I think would be the two hundred senshi rumor, and the Go-KaiBlack rumor. Supposedly, there will be a total of two hundred sentai senshi to appear over the course of the series, but most people don’t know who exactly will be featured. Beyond getting past and present cast members to return to do the series, the main issue with this is that, despite the fact that the show will have been around for 35+ years (the 35 years isn’t actually the real number, since the series premiered well before then), there aren’t 200 past senshi, at least if your counting main cast members, so no one knows who the rest will be. And as for the Go-KaiBlack rumors, well there have been possible cast “confirmations” before, but given the sentai‘s current make-up, there probably won’t be a Go-KaiBlack. But there probably will be more than one special senshi given the various team make-ups, and the fact that this series is supposed to be a sentai-equivalent of Kamen Rider Decade.
Well, these are just possibilities at the moment. When anything new pops up, or any other rumors are confirmed, I’ll let you know. In the mean time… hey wait,… where did my… what, HEY… come back here… BLOODY PIRATES!!!

UPDATE: This is infact the new cast, and the first preview premiered this sunday following the newest episode of Goseiger. (12/26/10)
UPDATE: The names of the characters have been confirmed. They are as follows:
- Captain Marvelous/Go-KaiRed
- Joe Gibuken/Go-KaiBlue
- Don Dokkoiya/Go-KaiGreen
- Luka Milfy/Go-KaiYellow
- Aimu Do Famille/Go-KaiPink
UPDATE: There’s a second promo thats been released. It Includes a panning shot of almost every sentai squadron, an individual look at the actors, and a sneak peak of Go-KaiGalleon in action. You can check it out on YouTube, provided you watch it sometime soon.
UPDATE: (1/23/11) There have been some images taken from the Goseiger Vs. Shinkenger movie, specifically from the scene where Go-Kaiger shows up, that shows them in action. Apparently, not only can they each change into previous senshi from past Sentai, but they can each change into ANY of the past warriors, they aren’t restricted to senshi of the same color. And when they change into a past senshi, the personal logo from that sentai appears in front of them. In fact, in that scene, they each change into red senshi from the past five seasons. Gotta tell ya, that just blows the lid off of a lot of the rumors floating around at the moment. For Go-Kaiger pics, check the most recent Go-Kaiger post.
