―Kiramai Silver's Battle Catchphrase[src]

Takamichi Hakataminami (博多南 宝路 Hakataminami Takamichi), now known as Takamichi Crystalia (クリスタリア宝路 Kurisutaria Takamichi) is Kiramai Silver (キラメイシルバー Kiramei Shirubā), the 6th Ranger and the Silver Ranger of the Kiramagers. He is 47 years old, making him the oldest Kiramager. He is also the biological older brother of Muryou Hakataminami, the adopted older brother of Princess Mabushina, the adopted son of King Oradin and the Queen Mabayuine, and the adopted nephew of Galza.

When he was briefly possessed by Jamental power from Galza, he turned into Dark Kiramai Silver (ダークキラマイシルバー Dāku Kiramei Shirubā).

Character History

Early Life

Takamichi Crystalia was born two years earlier than his brother Muryou Hakataminami. 30 years ago, at the age of 17 when he was still a high schooler, he was introduced to King Oradin, a friend of his father. During a White Valentine’s Day, Takamichi used to have marshmallows from his former crush named Akiho, but he did not mean to break her heart because of being misunderstood of hating marshmallow she made for him when he found out she overheard it. In truth, he was too shy to gratefully confess her gratitude to him, not disliking of marshm

allows.

During an expedition with the king, Takamichi was in the middle of digging an unearthed treasure in a forest. Unfortunately, the treasure was revealed to be a Monstone. The Monstone went into Takamichi, endangering his life. Oradin brought Takamichi to Crystalia and implanted a Kiramai Stone into his body to regulate the effect of the Monstone.

Afterward, Takamichi was adopted as the prince of the Crystalian Kingdom and met the kingdom’s sole heir, Princess Mabushina, at cost of unable to have a chance to apologize to Akiho. Also, during his time in Crystalia, he came into contact with Galza, after which he developed a resentment toward his adopted uncle. Later, for some unknown reasons, he seemingly had a change of heart and planned to return to Earth for treasure hunting, taking both the Shiny Kiramai Changer and Shiny Breaker along with him, disregarding Mabushina's objection.

Present Day

Takamichi first appears where he discovers Sayo Oharu laying against a rock with a sprained ankle after she experienced a string of bad luck attending to an emergency regarding stranded hikers. He uses what he calls "Wonder Medicine" to heal her ankle, which she initially disbelieved would work thanks to her medical background.

Later, he introduces himself as Takamichi Crystalia to Meteorite Jamen in front of the Kiramagers, surprising them. After the defeat of Meteorite Jamen and gaining their admiration, Mabushina approaches Takamichi and slaps him, blaming him for what had happened to their home and their father because of his treasure hunting habits.Episode 12: Wonder Drill Boy

After being brought to CARAT, he reunites with his long-lost younger brother Muryou and eventually learned of Galza’s betrayal. Episode 13: Great Underground War

Personality

Takamichi is quick, positive, and very strong. He also has a 6th sense and doesn't really think when he goes into action. Takamichi uses English words in his speech, especially the word "wonder", in "Wonder Cute" and "Wonder Thank You".

As evaluated by Juru Atsuta, Takamichi is a kind and caring person deep down, who loves helping people, yet appears to pretend to act cold-hearted and selfish. He is shown to have happily greeted Mabushina before she berated him for his absence. Takamichi also has a habit of suddenly changing moods (such as going from disappointed/serious to happy and animated) when promised something or just in general. Takamichi also heavily followed Galza's advice about going solo, meaning he rarely accepted assistance, though after he lost the Shiny Kiramai Changer, he realized that Galza was trying to sabotage him, something that was hidden by his own ego. Most of this mood shift and loner personality stems from him knowing a dark secret that involves the potential loss of his sister. Rather than letting her get involved, he started to act uncaring instead of letting her know the truth.

When Muryou reveals Takamichi to be a Showa Era individual, Takamichi leaves the CARAT base by doing what Muryou says was a common Showa sign-off.

He is also implied to have a crush on, or at least some sort of feelings for Sayo Oharu multiple times, including two seconds into his first appearance, when he calls Sayo "Wonder Cute".

  • Princess Mabushina - Adoptive younger sister

Powers and Abilities

  • Decelerated Aging: Due to the stones in his body, he ages at a much slower rate than normal humans, to the point that he looks 17 even if he's 47.
  • Superhuman Strength: Due to the stones in his body, Kiramai Silver is incredibly strong, able to stop a large quarry truck with just his legs.
  • Telepathy: Due to the stones in his body, he can reach out and speak to Mabushina telepathically.

Weakness

  • Althaiophobia (formerly): Takamichi has a fear of marshmallows, due to a painful memory from his high school youth involving marshmallows for not meaning to broke Akiho’s heart because of being misunderstood of hating it. Thanks to Sena’s encouragement, he eventually got over this fear, and both confess and apologize to Akiho that he didn’t hate marshmallows, but was shy to confess of being gratefully gifted by her.Episode 16: Marshmallow Royale.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Takamichi Crystalia is portrayed by Kohei Shoji (庄司浩平 Shōji Kōhei). As Kiramai Silver, his suit actor is Masashi Takada (高田将司 Takada Masashi), who previously served as the suit actor for Ryusoul Blue. Takada is also the suit actor for GigantDriller, given that the mecha is essentially a robot version of Kiramai Silver.

Notes

  • Kiramai Silver is:
    • The first Sentai Ranger whose signature weapon is a jackhammer.
    • The first Ranger with a drill motif in Super Sentai history.
    • Another Sentai Ranger to be a sibling of an ally/allies and an antagonist.
    • The Second Silver Ranger to command a Drill Mecha. The first being Gai Ikari of the Gokaigers.
    • The first Ranger in Super Sentai history, to kiss a female Ranger (on the cheek) on-screen. This is similar to Power Rangers' Tommy Oliver, as they are both the first Sixth Rangers of each respective series to do this, Tommy having done this with Kimberly Hart. The only difference is that while Tommy and Kimberly pursued a relationship, it is only hinted multiple times that Takamichi likes Sayo.
    • The first Sentai Sixth Ranger since Gosei Knight  to become part of his Robo.
      • Coincidentally both Takamichi and Gosei Knight are Silver Sixth Rangers from Pre-Anniversary Seasons.
  • The way Kiramai Silver raises/lowers his goggles is very similar to Kamen Rider MachIcon-crosswiki.png who can open/close his V-Helm. This also has a similar effect for Beast Morphers Red when his visor is pulled down, but only for his Zord's finishing attack.
    • Takamichi is also the fourth Sentai Sixth Ranger where a feature on his helmet can be moved, The first being Shurikenger with Fire mode, then Gai Ikari/Gokai Silver as when he transforms into Gold Mode the front part of the top of his helmet pushes down over his eyes, The second being Misao Mondou/Zyuoh The World as the front part of the top of his helmet and the front of the mouth plate can move up or down when he switches between any of his alternate forms.
      • The only difference between Takamichi and his predecessors is that Takamichi can move the goggles by hand without using his transformation device and it isn't for when he switches to a different form.
    • Speaking of Gokai Silver, Takamichi's situation is a hybrid between Gai and his counterpart, Orion/Super Megaforce Silver. Whereas Gai was the only Earthling in a team of aliens and Orion is the only alien in a team of Earthlings, while Takamichi is a human-alien hybrid in a team of full-blooded Earthlings.
  • Takamichi's last name is actually his adopted planet's name that he uses as a different persona.
  • Like with the other three Kiramagers, Takamichi's vehicle is a land-based vehicle.
  • Despite being turned into a half-Crystalian, Takamichi retained his human form, lacking any crystalline body parts to speak of.
    • However, his Crystalian bloodline slowed his aging, retaining his teenage appearance despite being two years older than his brother, Muryou. This is similar to the Dino Charge Power Rangers’ aging being negated by the Energems as well the members of the Ryusoul Tribe who age slowly.
    • Due to Takamichi's aging process being halted by King Oradin through a Kiramai Stone, this makes Muryou older than him in appearance.
  • For Takamichi's first onscreen roll call, the Shiny Breaker was featured instead of Mashin Drijan, which was used following his next roll call.
