My own Fan Drawing of the 2011 Sentai

My own rendition on pirate Sentai: This is not based on any info, this is my own creation. I admit I am not the greatest at shadowing. By the way, if you can't decipher my horrid renderings, blue is a manta ray, red is a shark, pink is a jellyfish, green is turtle and black is killer whale. I signed it Lavender Ranger. And yes, pink looks like cowboy hat and black looks like the pope hat, but I modeled them after pirate hats. The visors were the hardest to make look different, I tried to modeled them a bit after treasure chests. Pink and Green are female and I had the toughest time giving them poses. Pink looks like she is confused and Green looks like she just stepped into the picture. Oh well.

I doubt this is the actual color scheme they will use, I am sure they might just go with Red, Blue, Green, Pink and Yellow, the girls being the latter. And I am sure the sixth will be a metal, since the 30th anniversary had Bouken Silver and the 25th had Gao Silver.

Esto es mi propia versión de un Sentai de pirata: Esto no se basa en ninguna información, es mi propia creación. Admito que no soy el mejor en hacer sombras. Por cierto, si usted no puede descifrar mis representaciones horribles, el azul es una manta raya, el rojo es un tiburón, rosa es una medusa, el verde es la tortuga y negro es una orca. Lo firmé Lavanda Ranger. Y sí, el sombrero de color rosa luce como el sombrero de vaquero y negro se ver como el sombrero de papa Catolico, pero yo lo modelo sobre sombreros de piratas. Las viseras eran los más difíciles para hacer un aspecto diferente, traté de modelado un poco sobre los cofres del tesoro. Rosa y Verde son mujeres. Rosa parece que está confundida y Verde se parece a ella sólo entró en la imagen.

Dudo que esto es sella la combinación de colores reales que van a utilizar, estoy seguro de que sólo podría ir con rojo, azul, verde, rosa y amarillo, las muchachas que son las últimas dos. Y estoy seguro de que el sexto será un metal, porth para el 30 º aniversario había Bouken Silver (Plata) y para el 25 aniversario de Gaoranger el sexto Ranger era plata.

Chouseishin Series

Chouseishin Gransazer (Ultra Star God GranSazer) - 10/04/03 – 09/25/04
The Gransazers were created by an ancient race of humans, before an alien alliance wiped them out millions of years ago. The Gransazers are divided into 4 tribes: flame, wind, earth, and water. Each tribe were formed differently and some were complete strangers. At first, one alien under a guise had the Wind Tribe fight against the other tribes. Once that was figured out, they defeated the alien and fought alongside, even though they had their own issues. The Water Tribe was later discovered around the same time as the evil Impactors came around, making thing worse. Together with the Ultra Star Gods, the Gransazers combat alien threats that threaten to annihilate Earth and mankind. 51 episodes.

Genseishin Justirisers (10/02/04 – 09/24/05)
When a monster from the sky is called, three chosen individuals are present. Shouta Date is awoken first, as Riser Glen and he fights back with Seishinjuu Enoh. He is told by a mysterious female voice that he must potect humanity. He takes this seriously. He later finds out his classmate Yuka Sanada is Riser Kageri but she just wants to be a normal girl. Meanwhile, Shinya Hiraga/Riser Gant is hiding in the shadows, observing them. He does not believe in just fighting to protect humanity, and questions why they were given the power, and what for. It takes much for anyone to become friends with him, and earning his trust is hard. 51 episodes.

Chousei Kantai Sazer-X (Super Star Fleet Sazer-X) - 10/24/05 – 06/24/06
In the year 2500, the earth has been taken over and covered in darkness by a race known as the Neo-Descal. The remaining members of the human resistance send their trump card weapons, the three Meteor God warships to the past to try and change the future by stopping Neo-Descal in 2005, when their attacks began. Along with the Meteor God warships comes Ad, captain of the Adle-Eagle squad and his right hand man, Gordo, Kane, captain of the Beet-Vizor squad, and the twin Sazers Ein and Zwein, and Remy, who pilots Great Lio. Ad and Kane are joined by Takuto Andou, whose grandfather met Captain Shark, leader of the resistance, as a young man and was left with a Knuckle Cross to allow his grandson in 2005 to become the third member of the team known as Sazer X. 38 episodes. The series last 38 episodes and was the last of the Chouseishin franchise after its cancellation. I didn't like it a lot since it didn't have a heronie, but there was a female warrior but she was a minor character.

Dennou Keisatsu Cybercop: Another Toho Production

Dennou Keisatsu Cybercop (Electro-Brain Police Cybercops) was first created in 1988 by Toho Enterprises, the show was an attempt to create a Tokusatsu series using the Super Sentai motif, but the idea was dropped after the unaired episode zero. The show was broadcast in NTV between mid-1988 and 1989. Due to financial problems, Tomoko's armor, Venus Bit, was never built. Many fans believe this show to be a stepping stone to the Chouseishin Series (Gransezar). A sequel was made to this series but animated, it was canceled due to poor ratings, ending in37 episodes, it was called Armored Police Metal Jack.

In the year 1999 (which at the time was 11 years later), crime has overrun Tokyo city, Japan. Hopelessly outmanned, the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Force decides to setup a special taskforce codenamed “ZAC” (Zero-Section Armed Constable), designed for special missions. The heroes wore "Bit Suits", three high-powered armors: Mars, Saturn and Mercury. In the first episode, a mysterious young man, Shinya Takeda, appears from nowhere and saves the day after using his own armor, the Jupiter Bit Suit. Following his victory, he joins ZAC, which starts to battle the evil organization Death Trap, ruled by Baron Kageyama, which manages to use the computers' will-power to gain world domination.

Shinya Takeda/Jupiter
Found by the Interpol rescue team, Takeda had a secret past he couldn't remember. He was fun-loving, but had a tempers. Jupiter is able to summon his own Cyber Thunder Arm, through a process called Cyber Boming, which ultimately kills his nemesis. The Jupiter Bit is the most advanced bit in ZAC arsenal and is far more powerful than any of the other Bit Suits. Later, it is revealed that Takeda was brought in to the year 1999 by a time-space portal fend, which opened after the Babylon Tower's explosion in the 23rd century, along with Lucifer and Kageyama. For Sailor Moon, Jupiter was green.

Tomoko Uesugi
Backup ZAC officer for the Cybercop. Monitors and assists with the maintenance of Cybernation and Black Chamber systems. Falls in love with Takeda. Carries the standard ZAC firearm, the S.D. Gun. I don't know how to feel about her not having amror, if it is a bad thing that she has no armor because she is female or that she is strong enough to fight without armor. In an manga version afterwards, her Venus bit armor did appear.

Ryoichi Mouri/Saturn
Jokester, does not enjoy fighting, eventually doing it because of his duties. His armor is equipped with numerous sensory and communication equipment which help aid the team in tracking down enemies and collecting data. His helmet antenna and his shoulder parabola sonar units can perform a wide range of surveillance, reconnaissance and tracking duties, making it the most vulnerable Bit Suit. For Sailor Moon, Saturn was purple.

Akira Houjyo/Mars
The team leader, Akira's father committed suicide when he was 8 years old, making him to become rebellious and to use his intelligence to hack the system of the enterprise in which his father worked in, eventually bankrupting it. After that, he was practically raised by Captain Oda. His armor is designed specifically to provide heavy artillery and firearms support. Due to the size of his suit, is one of the slower units and hampers Hojyo’s movements a bit. His armor is outfitted with “Stabilize Gear”, which brace his armor when he uses his heavy guns. It is funny how Mars is usually red, but here it is green.

Osamu Saiyonji/Mercury
Sayionji’s is the resident hand-to-hand combat specialist. Osamu is very brave and has a great fighting spirit. His armor is the most lightweight of the armors and affords him extreme flexibility in movement and speed albeit at the cost of defense and protection. His unit is the fastest of the “Cyber Bit” armors and he can travel at incredible speeds . Mercury also has access to the “Linear Speeder” skates that can be controlled via brainwave controls in the Bit Suit helmet. It is funny how in Sailor Moon, Mercury is light blue too.

Takeda's ex-partner in the future, was also transported with him and Kageyama to the 20th century through the same time-space portal. At first, his only wish is to avenge his dead comrades, targeting Jupiter as his nemesis and challenging him to a death confront. He allies with Baron Kageyama believing Takeda was the traitor who murdered his companions. Eventually, it is revealed that Kageyama was the mole. From then, Lucifer decides to aid the Cybercops without joining the group, helping them in battle more often than not. Lucifer's bit, along with Jupiter's, is the most powerful of the Bit Suits, as it is more equipped and enhanced than the others. Armed with two high-power pistols called Impulse Magnum, two machine-guns which come from his back to shoulders, the Pulsar Cannon, Gigamax and the Cyber Graviton, an energy absorber-release on his chest.

Seven Star Fighting God Guyferd

Shichisei Tōshin Guyferd (Seven Star Fighting God Guyferd) was made by Toho and Capcom, and aired on TV Tokyo in 1996. Guyferd borrows aspects from Bio Booster Armor Guyver (another Tokusatsu) and Fist of the North Star (manga). Only lasted 26 episodes. Gou Kazama studied the Ken'nou-ryu technique of karate with his elder brother Masato. Gou's transformation into Guyferd is a result of his Guyborg modified body merging with the parasite Fallah, which he was infected with during his travels in Peru prior to the series.

Zodiac is the ruler of Crown, he was a scientist who discovered the Fallah symboite in South America and intended to use it to evolve humanity, developing a god complex and ideology based on natural selection. To achieve that goal, he had Crown unearth the Ancient Scientific Citadel intending to use its ancient technology to cause cataclysmic disasters around the world thus heralding the mass worldwide infestation of Fallah. Megumi Shion is the one who took Shiroishi's place in Fallah research, using her Mutiants to capture Gou to research his anatomy to perfect the ultimate soldier project. But once it became possible to infuse a Guyborg with a Fallah, her mission changes to eliminate Gou.
