Gai CONFIRMED to return in Gokaiger

It had been rumored, I was half-hoping it was true and it turns out that yes, it is true. Gai Yuuki aka Black Condor is officially back in Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger episodes this September. Thought to be dead since 1992 when Jetman ended (he was last seen stabbed) and even the Jetman manga (which may or may not be canon) had him dead and they had to get a new member, Green Eagle. 20 years later he's looking great! It is also reported that Yukito and Ranru (Sho Tomita of Abaranger) will return in September, and Joh Ohara of Liveman (Yellow Lion) as well.

People do survive from stabbings. And the Green Eagle was only in the Manga, which many fans don't find canon and seeing that he is indeed alive, I doubt Green Eagle will be in Gokaiger. It seems that Ranru/Abare Yellow will not be returning after all.

I thought he was stabbed not shot.

News Anchor: Today, Gai Yuuki announced that he will come out of retirement & appear in Gokaiger. In related news...GAI YUUKI IS ALIVE?! HE WALKS THE EARTH! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! (SCREAMS)

Either Gokaiger will neglect to reveal how Gai survived his near death or....Gai's ghost really walks among Sentai Warriors!

Its the ghost of gai!!!!! ok Ive seen jetman 3 times and he did get stabbed. thats going to be confusing, I wonder how the will explain it

He survived much worse. Surely his friends were good enough friends to notice him passing out from blood loss and rushed him to the hospital. It's always been like the only way the ending could've made sense without having everyone look like a bunch of gigantic douchebags.

I think Gai/GokaiSilver will demand an explanation how Gai/Black Condor survived. Afterall, he knows everything about Sentai and may not pass the opportunity for an explanation.

Probably AkaRed helped him out? haha! just a thought.

Makes me wonder what'll come after this weekend's episode since you haven't revealed a list yet.

I'm hoping episode 28 will have another tribute since episodes 7, 14, 21 (iirc) have had tributes.

Also, there was a Green Eagle :)

* Green Eagle? :)

What surprises me is Aiko Ito returning as Ranru. Didn't she retire recently? Guess she wants one last hurrah... (Hopefully that means some retired Sentai alumnus will make reappearance again)

At any rate, Gai coming back will be awesome! This September will start nicely!

I wouldn't be surprised if they pull a "he was already dead" plot twist with Gai Yuki's return, given the similar circumstances between the way Gai Yuki was stabbed trying to get back stolen purse from a mugger and how Gai Ikari got struck by a car saving a little girl.
