It's a GIRL!!! The Real Shinken Red

UPDATED 12/17/09 2:35 PM EST
Natsui Runa is to play Karou (which is a unisex name), the REAL 18th head of the Shiba clan. She is to appear in Episode 44 of Samuari Sentai Shinkenger in January. Yes, the plot twist turns out to be that Takeru is not the real Shinken Red, but it is Karou. No other details have been revealed yet (like what is Takeru's real role in all of this), only that there will be two Shinken Reds. The news broke out two days before the pictures so many wondered if she would get a skirt. This has sent shock waves through the English-speaking Super Sentai fans, to be the first female Red Ranger in Super Sentai history. One theory is for this to show off the Super mode and Hyper mode at the same time outside of the teamup and special, other than it being a fascinating plot twist. Kudos to the producers! This is really awesome!

Wait what? So Takeru is not the real ShinkenRed. Is he still a member of the Shiba clan or is his whole life a lie? I am so confuzzled. This is great though. Can't wait for this episode to air.

Knowing Kamen Rider's deal with female characters in large roles, I doubt she'll live to see henshin.

maybe Takeru will be badly hurt he won't be able to fight so i guess temporarily Karou will have to fight in his place.

whether we will see two Shinken Reds is a question. i hope we do!

I hope she doesn't take over... anyway I think she must be the original.
