Synopsis

When a battle between Bacchus Wrath and Buldont to defeat the Ohranger creates a new Yokai, the team calls in some experts to help deal with the supernatural threat!

Plot

Emperor Bacchus Wrath and Prince Buldont hold a contest between them to determine who is more capable of destroying the Ohrangers. Bacchus Wrath creates Bara Gear to steal the Ohranger Robo, while Buldont summons a Youkai named Onbu-Obake. In order to combat the monster duo, the Ohrangers must join forces with another brave team of heroes... the Kakurangers.

Continuity and Placement

  • Kakuranger: While it occurs after the final episode, the movie is out of continuity due to the series ending with the team using their Doron Changer to permanently seal the Seal Door to stop Daimaou. No means to transform for the Kakurangers have been confirmed without their Doron Changer.
  • Ohranger: The Ohranger possess their entire arsenal in this movie, including OhBlocker and Tackle Boy; as well as have the assistance of Gunmazin. However, Emperor Bacchus Wrath is still alive, when in the series he is killed with OhBlocker's debut and is replaced by Bomber the Great during the introduction of Tackle Boy and Gunmazin. Due to these, this movie is considered non-continuity from their perspective. If it were Bomber in Bacchus Wrath's place, then the movie could take place between Episodes 38 and 39 with little to no continuity problems.

Notes

  • This crossover would start the yearly crossover VS. series.
  • This is the last crossover where the previous team does not use any of their mecha.
  • This crossover is the first to be adapted into a Power Rangers team up episode.
  • Despite being the first Vs. movie, it was treated as if it was a special Ohranger episode, down to the point of the regular opening and ending title sequence being used and an "episode title screen" being the only indication of this being a special cross-over. The concept of being a pure Vs. movie from the intro on begins with the next cross-over.
  • The producers' earliest plans were for an Ohranger V-Cinema movie, without the Kakurangers. It was Toei producer Susumu Yoshikawa's idea to include the Kakurangers, and only with Sasuke and Tsuruhime. It was only when Hiroshi Tsuchida, Shu Kawai, and Kane Kosugi offered to come back that it became the first major team-up between two teams with all the actors shown untransformed. [1]
  • This is the first team-up where all the actors from the previous team return to reprise their roles. Previous team-ups had characters who only appeared transformed and either silent or voiced by a different actor. As such, this is the final time the Kakurangers appear as a team.
  • Ole vs. Kakuranger was the first of fourteen crossover movies shown during the Super Sentai Versus Series Theater, a special event on TV Asahi during the run of Tensou Sentai Goseiger. This movie was aired in two half-hour parts an hour before the week's episode of Goseiger, and there was also commentary at the beginning and end by the Goseigers about the teams and the storylines within the movie.
  • This V-Cinema production was released on the same day as episode 2 of Gekisou Sentai Carranger.
  • The Kakuranger Ball sequence, starting with "Ready, GO!", is stock footage from Episode 34.
