Mashin Sentai Kiramager (魔進戦隊キラメイジャー Mashin Sentai Kirameijā)[2][3], translated as Machine Squadron Sparkling Ranger, is the 44th season of Super Sentai. The show's theme is gemstones and vehicles.

The series premiered on the Sunday morning Super Hero TimeIcon-crosswiki.png block alongside Kamen Rider Zero-OneIcon-crosswiki.png after its predecessor Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger concluded its run on March 1, 2020. After Zero-One's finale on August 30, 2020, Kamen Rider SaberIcon-crosswiki.png joined Kiramager in the Super Hero Time block.[4] On March 7, 2021, it was replaced by Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger in the Super Hero Time block.

Production

"From past to present all over the world, fun stories always have “gems” appear in it. An adventure involving ancient artifacts, treasure chests in pirate ships, infinite stones all over space… These “shiny and sparkling things” that have crystallized by heat and pressure deep underground have always fascinated us.

In this title, we are attempting as part of the 44th Super Sentai show to utilize these gems for the first time ever as they change into children’s favorite “playthings”. Gems x Vehicles = Mashins. Our heroes will engage in an adrenaline-fueled adventure as they share a bond with these Mashins. Why is it that gems shine? It’s because light reflects off of it in intricate ways. Super Sentai incomparably has many faces. Human drama, life-sized action, special effects involving machines and robots, a world view with a sense of wonder, and a cast of fresh faces. By taking in various rays of light with these various aspects a Sentai team shines as a Sentai team. And from it all, Mashin Sentai Kiramager aims to be the most "sparkling Super Sentai ever”. Please look forward to it!" - Toei Producer Hideaki Tsukada explains how the theme of Kiramager came to be.

Impact of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic

On March 31, 2020, it was reported that Rio Komiya, who portrays Juru Atsuta, had tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing symptoms and stopped filming the weekend prior. None of the other cast or crew members were reported to have been infected or displayed any symptoms whatsoever.[5] By April 9, Komiya confirmed via Twitter that he had recovered and would continue his two-week self-quarantine at home.[6]

As a result, filming schedules were altered and the broadcasting of new episodes was delayed following the airing of Super Hero Time on May 10, 2020, which included Episode 35 of Zero-One and Episode 10 of Kiramager. From May 14 to June 14, Kiramager aired a series of specials, a televised version of Episode Zero, and a special director's cut of Episodes 1 and 2. In Zero-One, similar recap episodes were aired as well. During the airing of these recap episodes, both shows featured early bird appearances from the future.

Shortly after Japan lifted its state of emergency on May 25, 2020, Toei announced that both Zero-One and Kiramager would resume filming with newly placed guidelines during filming to control any further spreading of the virus.[7] New episodes of both series resumed airing on June 21, 2020.[8]

Plot

"When people shine, a miracle is born. That shine is the symbol of the warriors who can change the future! KIRAMAI GO! (人が輝く時、そこに奇跡が生まれる。輝きそれは未来を変える戦士の証し。キラメイ GO! Hito ga kagayaku toki, soko ni Kiseki ga umareru. Kagayaki sore wa Mirai wo kaeru Senshi no akashi. Kiramei Gō!)"
―Narrator

A princess from a land of jewelry and Kiramai Stones comes to Earth in search of people with a “shining spirit” called Kiramental, a source of outstanding charm and talent. She seeks them out to make them into warriors to defend Earth from an evil army. Five are chosen by the Kiramai Stones, which transform into sentient vehicle companions known as Mashin. Using these powers, they fight the evil army bent on robbing people of their hope and radiance.

Notes

  • Kiramager is the first Super Sentai to have the following:
    • Its own film double-billed with another Sentai movie and the first to detail the origins of a team in a film rather than in the TV series.
    • A full televised run in the Reiwa Era following the abdication of Emperor Akihito on April 30, 2019, early in Ryusoulger's run.
    • Three Giant Robos to begin with: Land Mage, Sky Mage, and Kiramazin.
  • Because of COVID-19:
    • Kiramager's production was completely interrupted, stopping after Rio Komiya had been diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 31 and restarting June 1. As a result, its episode count was cut from 49 to 45.
    • Masks were worn more often by background characters than in previous seasons.
    • Kiramager being the first season to have both its summer movie and crossover with their predecessors premiere the same year due to movie theaters being shut down when the summer movie should have premiered.
  • Like Engine Sentai Go-Onger, "Mashin" (魔進) literally translates as "magic" or "sorcery." The logo for the series uses the English word "machine" in the title instead of the romanization of the kanji as "mashin." The latter kanji (進) means "progress".
  • This is the first Sentai series where the Red Ranger (Kiramai Red) passes the torch to the White Ranger (Zenkaizer) in their traditional sentai handoff.
