In just one month the 47th Super Sentai will debut and it will be arthropods and royalty themed. I have always thought royal knights could be a good theme for Super Sentai/Power Rangers. So, click "read more" and let's try to guess what will come.
I am going to skip going over the obvious; there base is clearly a castle so either a ranger will be royalty or they will be serving one. Between the 11th and 17th episode we will most likely see more rangers and more mecha. Also, the costumes look like they offer some legit protection which is nice.
There is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be a more fantasy themed season than technology and I am pretty positive they will do a fish-out-of-water story one of two ways. Either the rangers are going to be knights of old times that adapt to the modern world like Zyurangers. Or, the rangers will be of modern time and find themselves thrown into this old school royal world.
The real question for me is, how seriously are they going to take this theme? I could easily see the writers having the Rangers taking things extremely seriously and being obsessed with acting like a "noble knight". Or, not seriously at all and having laid back Rangers who need to learn to take things seriously, a little like Ninninger.
Personally, I really hope they take the fantasy setting all the way. I can get down with the idea of a Red Ranger wanting to prove himself to the king and earn full knighthood. Maybe make that Yellow ranger the Princess who sneaks out to fight against her Fathers (the King) wishes. I cannot tell what gender that Violet Ranger will be. Or, maybe have the King be an Extra Ranger similar to DekaMaster. We do not need any gimmicks, royalty and knights are already fun so just focus on making them epic.
Based on the official King-Ohger Twitter, we know the Red Ranger will be of noble decent as he was compaired to previous Red Rangers with royal monikers; Zyurangers, Shinkengers, Ohrangers, and Ryurangers. Now, we just wait and see with how they will use this setting.
Please share your own thoughts on the matter.
