Kaiju no Kami Reviews - Mashin Sentai Kiramager (2020) Series

Like Kamen Rider Zero-One, Kiramager has one of hell of a production history all thanks to the little worldwide virus called Covid. Back when Kiramager was first announced, there was talk about combining cars with jewelry in order to appease both boys and girls. They wanted to do something new to kick off the first show of the new era, and bringing in both demographics would elevate that idea. Furthermore, Bandai had just recently reclassified Sentai to a lower tiered line while replacing Sentai’s original rank with Ultraman. This meant Bandai’s expectations for the franchise dwindled and they weren’t willing to spend as much money on new products as they had in the past. Thus, Toei needed something gripping towards new comers while also being familiar to those who were already fans. The most logical step was to hire Naruhisa Arakawa to write the show given his success with Abaranger, Dekaranger, and Gokaiger. Does Kiramager shine amongst its Sentai brothers, or is it all pizzazz with no substance? Watch to find out?
