Samurai Sentai Shinkenger! Appare!

9 08 2011

So my last post about Power Rangers Samurai prompted me to revisit the series that it’s based on, Super Sentai Series’ Samurai Sentai Shinkengers (侍戦隊シンケンジャー).

After watching bits and pieces of it again, it dawned on me that this cast is (overall) the best looking cast out of all the series. Hell, I even think the girls are cute! So that says something about this ensemble. haha

Sentai series usually cast young, good looking and cute idol types. But there’s always one person that ends up fugging everything up. If not the original 5 members, then usually the 6th member that joins midway through the series.

Surprisingly, this was not the case with Shinkengers. When Shinkengold joined, he didn’t muck up the pretty.

The proof is in the pudding, as they say. So here they are.

Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (侍戦隊シンケンジャー)

Suzuki Shōgo (鈴木 勝吾) as ShinkenGreen

Matsuzaka Tori (松坂 桃李) as ShinkenRed

Aiba Hiroki (相葉 弘樹) as ShinkenBlue

ShinkenBlue & ShinkenGold

Soma Keisuke (相馬 圭祐) as ShinkenGold with ShinkenGreen

相馬 圭祐 (Gold) had many pictures of himself pressing against the window like that...perhaps it's his version of PLANKING?.


相馬 圭祐 (Gold) also had a lot of pictures of his cats...
