This article is about a/an series entry (the 44th) in the Super Sentai series.

Mashin Sentai Kiramager (魔進戦隊キラメイジャー Mashin Sentai Kirameijā)[1][2] translated as Machine Squadron Sparklingranger, is the 44th season of Super Sentai. The show's theme is genies, vehicles and gemstones, with an additional focus on Middle Eastern folklore.

The series premiered on the Sunday morning Super Hero TimeIcon-crosswiki block alongside Kamen Rider Zero-OneIcon-crosswiki after its predecessor Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger concluded its run on March 1, 2020.

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 coronavirus pandemic

On March 31st, it was reported by Toei Productions during a press conference that Rio Komiya, who plays Juru Atsuta, had been tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, after reporting he was not feeling well and stopped shooting the weekend prior. At this time, it is unknown if any other cast or crew members are infected or show any symptoms of the virus. As a result, Kiramager has halted production until further notice. This will not hinder broadcasting for the time being, as enough material has been filmed to last until mid-May.[3] On April 5th, it was reported and confirmed by Toei producer Hideaki Tsukada that Rio Komiya’s condition is getting better during his self-isolation [4] and, on April 9th, Rio confirmed via his Twitter that he was officially discharged from the hospital. However, he would still remain in self-quarantine at home for at least two weeks. [5]

Plot

"When people shine, a miracle is born. That shine is the symbol of the warriors who can change the future! KIRAMAI GO!"
―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

  • The show's aesthetic of magic and gems make it similar to Kamen Rider WizardIcon-crosswiki.
  • This is the first Super Sentai to have 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.
  • Kiramager will be the first Sentai to have a full televised run in the Reiwa Era following the abdication of Emperor Akihito on April 30, 2019, during the run of Ryusoulger’’.
  • This is the first series to start off with three Giant Robos: Land Mage, Sky Mage, and Kiramaizin.
