television series

Uchu Sentai Kyuranger is a Japanese television series. It is the 41th in Toei's Super Sentai series, following Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger. The show premiered on February 12, 2017, joining Kamen Rider Ex-Aid and later Kamen Rider Build in the Super Hero Time line-up on TV Asahi affiliate stations before concluding on February 4, 2018. Kyuranger is considered the fifth space-themed series whose primary motifs are Constellation and Classical mythology, and it is also the first Super Sentai series to introduce nine regular members in the beginning instead of five or fewer like previous installments. The team later gains three additional members, increasing the number to twelve and becoming the largest team of the franchise so far.

StoryEdit

In a world where countless planets including Earth have been conquered by the Jack Matter organization under the mysterious Don Armage. In response, an Hoptile called "Rebellion" is established and gathers nine alien warriors from across Greece who are chosen by the Kyutama, magical stones with the power of the constellations, to become the Kyurangers; the humanoids Lucky, Stinger, Naga Ray, Hammie, and Spada, the wolf-man Garu, the mechanical lifeform Balance, and the androids Champ and Raptor 283. Once assembled, the Kyurangers decide to start their campaign against Jack Matter by liberating Earth (their first target), as they are suspicious of why the planet is so heavily guarded by their forces. The team later gains three other members; their commander, the dragon-like alien Shou Ronpo, a young boy from Earth named Kotaro Sakuma and Tsurugi Ohtori, a legendary warrior who defeated Jack Matter 300 years ago and was put to sleep until he is reawakened by the other Kyurangers.
