Kyoryuger Plot Revealed: Zyuranger 2.0?

 

 

“Long ago, in the time of the dinosaurs, the earth was invaded by forces from outer space. The only people capable of the stopping them was a team known as the Kyouki Ryu no Sha, the People of the Strong Dragons, or, Kyoryuger for short. Now, in the modern world, they return using the powers of the Beast Batteries to fight off this revived threat.”

Now, I’ve already been seeing complaints that the plot has the same basic premise as Zyuranger, but since that was to first Sentai to feature dinosaurs, and it’s going to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of Power Rangers, that shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. (Not saying there’s any sort of official tie-in, just that there may be some unspoken influences.)

Kyoryuger premieres February 17th, 2013.

ALL OF THE FOLLOWING POWER RANGER ROLES are a group of five teens 18-23 years to play 15-19 years. They are all nice looking, charismatic, energetic, outgoing and confident. They must have SUPER HERO LOOKS with average height and in great physical condition. Martial arts or gymnastics is a plus, but not mandatory. We are hoping for a very young looking cast this season.
[RED RANGER – REESE] Any ethnicity male, 18 – 23 to play 17-19 years. Reese is an attractive young man with super hero looks and a nice athletic build. He is a natural leader with honorable intentions. He is a much disciplined young man.[BLACK RANGER – BARON] All ethnicity Male, 18 to 23 to play 17-19. He has good looks with a slim build. He is fearless, fun and athletic. He wears his heart on his sleeve.[BLUE RANGER – PARRY] Any ethnicity Male, 18 to early twenties to play 16-19 years. He is a bit on the nerdy side. He is a studious and highly intelligent.

[PINK RANGER – SADIE] Any ethnicity, 18 to 23 to play 16 to 19 years. Average height. Sadie is a beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent and confident. She is very intuitive and genuinely cares about others.

[YELLOW RANGER – AVA] Any ethnicity, 18 to early twenties to play 16 to 18 years of age. Average height. Ava is STUNNING and athletic. She is generally unflappable and tough, but has a heart of gold. A young Angelina Jolie type.

Yep, everything you’ll need for said auditions. And for my fellow toku fans, I can now hereby confirm that the 20th season of Power Rangers will be based off of Tensou Sentai Goseiger and not any later Super Sentai series like many had predicted. And because they haven’t formally announced the series yet, the show still doesn’t have an official title, though the name “Power Rangers Megaforce” was trademarked last year by Saban Brands last year, so that may still possibly be the title. Anyway, here’s a little sneak preview of what the next team of Rangers will look like:

A fitting bunch to represent the 20th Anniversary celebration of the Power Rangers franchise, don’t you think?

Anyway, some possible spoilers: This group will use card-based attacks, which will include special cards for morphing and summoning their zords. And a new twist on the zords: instead of constantly summoning new zords to create some massive thrown-together eyesore, the will summon attachable zord heads which will unlock new combinations and special moves. In the original Goseiger, they went up against three different enemy organizations, with one enemy constantly reappeaing, but they might not include all three if they don’t run it for two seasons. And yes, there is a sixth ranger, but it won’t be another teenager, or human for that matter!

Aright, enough spoilers for today. Just get out there and start sending in you resumes! That goes for all of you that have been asking about this new updated info since last June.

UPDATE: As of Friday, May 25th, they have stopped accepting new auditions for this next season of Power Rangers, and are now moving onto the next stage of the process, whittling down the number of applicants. Currently, they have about 50 people per role, so it will probably be awhile before we hear anything about an official cast. And yes, there has been unofficial confirmation from people auditioning that one of the roles is for a Black Ranger, confirming a Goseiger adaption. Yes, I know that some of the casting sides were straight out of Go-Kaiger episodes, but that doesn’t mean diddly squat at the moment.

Long Overdue UPDATE: To anyone still interested, I posted this story months ago, and the audition process for this future season of Power Rangers (a.k.a. Power Rangers Megaforce) has been over. The new cast has been picked and revealed already, so please, DO NOT POST ANY MORE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN THE COMMENTS SECTION BELOW! This is NOT a casting agency website, this is just an informational fan blog. I have no influence over the casting process whatsoever, I’m just a fan like the rest of you. So unless you want to get spammed like crazy, please stop leaving you personal information. And just to be clear, I have no idea when they will be auditioning for future Ranger series, so don’t ask about that either.

Gobuster Story Revealed!: Are we still talking about Super Sentai, because this sounds a lot more like a Power Rangers story line…

Alright, first we got the leaked catalogue images, and now we have the official story for the 36th Super Sentai series, Tokumei Sentai Gobuster! And when you read it, you’ll get why the title is what it is. Read the story below (translation courtesy of kakeru1986 of HJU):

“A long time ago, among moutains far from any civilization, there was a center researching on human innovation. One day, the main computer of the research became malicious and went berserk. Humanity managed to stop this, and peace came back…or so it seemed.

Humans, now in peace, predicting that their enemy could go berserk and attack another time, decided to build giant robots and machine, and trained chosen warriors to fight against it. Finally, this day has come.

The name of the team formed to fight against the enemy is Tokumei Sentai Gobuster! Now their battle begins.”

Wow, really convinced now that they’re starting to pull stuff from Power Rangers. Not that they haven’t before, but it’s just much more obvious this time around. Either that, or they’re really letting Koichi Sakamoto take the reigns on this one. Either way, let us reserve judgement until we’ve seen more.

2012 Sentai ACTUALLY CONFIRMED: It’s for real this time!

Hey, just came out within the last 20 minutes, dukemon22 has found actual copyrights for the next Super Sentai series! And it looks like the official title for the 36th Super Sentai series will be (drumroll please): “Tokumei Sentai Gobuster“! That translates to “Special Mission Taskforce Gobusters”.

Here’s a copy of the copyright claim:

I know, I had to srink it down so that it would fit on the page, but I can guarantee you that it’s real.

And if any of the rumors that have been floating around are any indication as to what the series will be about, then think something along these lines:

With all the rumors of ghosts and yokai and such being major themes in the series, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch of the imagination to think that Gobuster was a play on Ghostbusters. No one can verify that at this time, but at least we have a name. And since the copyrights have come so late this year, it could be a sign that Go-Kaiger will last longer than 50 episodes, so even if you’re not excited by this, at least you can be excited for more Go-Kaiger.

What do you think, Egon?

Power Rangers Casting Sides Released: Goseiger it is!

Two weeks ago, we learned from an inside source that Saban would be having casting calls sometime this month for the next batch of Power Rangers for the 2012 season. A week later, we found out that they had cancelled the bigger casting call event, with no reason given. Well, now we’ve learned that they are going to hold auditions for the 2012 Power Rangers season!

While no big announcement has been made, casting call “sides” have popped up on services like Showfax.com, and the parts shown so far are for the Red, Black, Blue, Yellow, and Pink Rangers, indicating a Goseiger adaption. Other people have already purchased/downloaded the sides, and so far it seems to be the same sides that they posted for the Power Rangers Samurai auditions [last year’s casting sides here]. They’re even using the same casting director, Iris Hampton, who at one time listed Power Rangers in her Facebook job description, but had to change it because of overzealous fans constantly bothering her. Anyway, here’s an excerpt from one of the casting sides, courtesy of PowerAnimals:

POWER RANGER SIDES
SADIE (PINK RANGER) – AVA (YELLOW RANGER)

• AUDITION ADDRESS
1950 Sawtelle Blvd Suite 270
Los Angeles, CA 90025
PRUSACasting@aol.com
• Please correspond by email if you need to re-schedule your audition time.
• If you are running late please note that my audition schedule for the week of August

EXT. HALLWAY – DAY

SADIE stands outside the gym where the rescued children play. She is wounded
just above her right hip. Slowly, she sits on the floor and leans against the wall.

AVA comes looking for her.

AVA
SADIE, SADIE, are you okay?

SADIE
Yes, it’s nothing.

AVA notices blood.

AVA
You’re injured. Let me see.

SADIE
I told you. Don’t worry. Just go back. I’ll meet you inside.

AVA
I won’t leave you like this.

SADIE
I’m fine, please.

AVA
I think you need to rest a while.
The kids are fine.

SADIE looks into the room and sees a group of girls playing with dolls and toys.

SADIE
I always wanted to play like that.

SADIE turns to AVA. She smiles but is sad.

SADIE (CONT’D)
I never got to play with other girls. When I was young,
all I wanted to do was play house, pretend I was the mom, but…I
always had to practice, to train…I’m sorry for
talking this way. I don’t quite feel like myself.

AVA
It’s okay. That’s your dream? To marry…

SADIE
Sometimes, I just wish I could have a normal life; become a normal
wife, maybe even a normal mother one day.

AVA
I am sure you will be all of those things.

SADIE
Well, that was the plan. But sometimes, I think
about what would happen if we…

AVA
I know…
Sadie brushes it off with a smile.

SADIE
I’m sorry. I’m just being…such a

AVA
No. It’s fine. I understand.

SADIE
Let’s go back inside. C’mon. I don’t know
what’s gotten into me. I’m getting so emotional…
Sadie smiles to AVA and tries to get back up, but she is
held back by the shooting pain in her side.

Very deep stuff. 😛 Anyway, like it said in the thing, auditions will be held next Monday, the 22nd, until Thursday the 25th, from 10:00-Noon and 1:00-5:00 pm. You’ll need to email them to set up an audition time. If you’d like to download any of the other sides, just click the Showfax.com link above.

For anyone out there bold enough to try out, I say good luck to you! Break a leg, just not your own!
