Toei has revealed our first look at next year's Super Sentai series, Kishiryu Sentai Ryuusouger. Now you may be thinking, "What does that name even mean?" The title roughly translates into Knight Dragon Task Force Dragon Soldier. However, if you look at the images (shown below), they're clearly not dragons, but rather dinosaurs. This wouldn't be the first time Toei pulled a stunt like this as Abaranger's title was Bakuryu Sentai which translated into Blast Dragon Task Force despite the team also being dinosaur themed.
To say that some are let down, including myself, is an understatement. There have been rumors circling that Toei and Bandai need this show to perform immensely otherwise they will be shelving the Super Sentai franchise (probably until the 50th anniversary in 2025). If that is the case, one would think and have hoped that Toei would have gone all out on this year's theme and did something revolutionary for the franchise. Instead, we get another dinosaur themed show, and one that is barely six years since the last dinosaur iteration. Whatever is going through Toei's head is quite perplexing, especially if this is the show needed to save the franchise.
Let's hope they have the writers to support this tiresome tirade.
