Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger (機界戦隊ゼンカイジャー Kikai Sentai Zenkaijā)[1], translated as Machine World Squadron Full Throttle Ranger, is the 45th season of Super Sentai.

The show's theme is robots and machinery, celebrating Super Sentai's 45th anniversary with heroes and items based on past Sentai Robots and Ranger teams.

On March 7, 2021, the series premiered on the Super Hero TimeIcon-crosswiki.png block alongside Kamen Rider SaberIcon-crosswiki.png after Mashin Sentai Kiramager concluded on February 28, 2021. After Saber's finale, Kamen Rider ReviceIcon-crosswiki.png joined Zenkaiger in the Super Hero Time block.

In 2021, the show will be dubbed in South Korea as Power Rangers Zenkaiger (파워레인저 젠카이저 Pawoleinjeo Jenkaijeo?). [2]

Production

The trademark for the series was filed by Toei Company on September 8, 2020.[4]

According to producer Shinichiro Shirakura, the show's diversity in its titular members, featuring a human and four Kikainoids, is due to the Super Sentai series' recurring themes of diversity in its group of protagonists while maintaining strong characters. The reason why Zenkaizer was chosen as the leader despite being colored white instead of red is to ensure that he would stand out in future crossovers when grouped alongside other Red Rangers.[5] The four Kikainoids were based on the non-human members of Uchu Sentai Kyuranger. Although Zenkaiger is open to the idea of featuring past heroes in certain episodes, Shirakura mentioned that it will not be done in a similar way to Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger.[6]

Plot

"Countless worlds found themselves....trapped within small machines, unable to resist. And the last world to be targeted........"
―Narrator in the first episode

In this story, our heroes will use full-force full-throttle (全力全開 Zenryoku Zenkai) to stop the enemies who are trying to destroy the parallel universes. One hero known as Zenkaizer, with a heart of justice, will stand up to a preposterous giant mass of evil who has managed to break into their home world. Fighting alongside him are four robotic lifeforms.[3]

Notes

The 45th Anniversary Super Sentai Series logo

  • According to producer Shinichiro Shirakura, the working title for this season was meant to be Sentai Sentai Sentaiger (センタイ戦隊センタイジャー Sentai Sentai Sentaijā), before the executives decided to use the current title instead.[15][16]
  • This season is the first where the core team consists of a single human and four robots.
  • The three series, Zyuohger, Lupinranger VS Patranger and Zenkaiger have the same head writer, Junko Komura.
  • Unlike most Super Sentai series, the title card appears at the start of the opening credits.
  • Contrary to previous seasons, Zenkaiger treats each Super Sentai as coming from different worlds, though to what extent is currently unclear.
