Gobuster 2012 Rumors: Who you gonna call?

So as you can imagine, rumors have been flying around ever since it was determined that Tokumei Sentai Gobuster was going to be the official title for the next series. Well, we now have a number of rumors from a reliable source, and we’re definitely starting to get a good idea of how the series could play out. Here’s what been rumored so far:

  • The team is composed of red, blue, and yellow
  • The Gobusters will first appear in Gokaiger VS Gavan. They seem to be linked to the 30th anniversary of Metal Hero series.
  • Though the team starts at 3, the Gobusters have Partners. The original post relates this to Den-o, so it would be my guess the partners are partner spirits or youkai.
  • The henshin device, at this point in time, is rumored to be a smart  phone type. The device may actually have an interactive panel display,  but to what ends is unknown, but it sounds cool none the less.
  • Potential Color Scheme #1: There is a lot of speculation that the color scheme will be  Jetman-esque. With Red, Yellow, Black being male, Blue and White being  female.
  • Potential Color Scheme #2: There is speculation that the team will be colored  according to the olympic colors, like Go-onger and Liveman were (Red, Blue, Yellow, Black, Green)

So then, a three-man team with some kind of partners (possibly spirits/yokai) with smart phone henshin devices and a possible connection to the Metal Heroes. Wonder how that will work?

Keep in mind that these are rumors, and even though the source is reliable, these could turn out to be false. We still have a couple of months before any official announcement, so we’ll just have to wait to see what’s what.

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.
