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?

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.

OOOxFourze Movie Wars Title revealed: I’m sure it will make sense when we get further into Fourze!

The title for the upcoming Movie Wars has been revealed! Sorta…

Apparently, the title for the movie, premiering December 10th, is called Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX. No other information has been revealed yet, and this title didn’t actually come from an official announcement. It came from a user review page on Yahoo Japan Movies site. I guess that counts as official, right?
