Check out the 40th Sentai series' animal-themed suits and robot

Can we expect a farm setting?

Ever since I watched the Go-Busters V-Cinema, a part of me wished to see an actual series was similar to the alternate Go-Busters featured in Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters v.s. Dobutsu Sentai Go-Busters. My wish may not have come true, but the next installment is called Dobutsu Sentai Juohger, which is the next best thing. From the looks of it, the title has a cube motif as well.

Now that December is here, the show's suits and robot have been revealed. The team's helmets sport a look that's a mix of Liveman, Hurricanger, and Gekiranger, which is the best part of the design. However, the animal illustrations on their costumes look like the kind of design that you see on a shirt of a school's mascot. Nonetheless, the good outweighs the bad, so they might grow on me when I see them in action.

On the other hand, the toy for the show's signature robot, the Jouh King, looks too blocky for your usual Sentai mecha. Since the separate animal units can change into blocks, the whole thing gives off a Shinkenger vibe. Depending on how they utilize folding gimmicks, the machine might transform into a better-looking form. The team's mechs are called Juoh Cubes, with and the main ones being Cube Eagle, Cube Shark, Cube Lion, Cube Elephant, and Cube Tiger. There also seems to be a giraffe and a gorilla as well.

One of the neat things about the new series is that we're getting an Elephant Ranger and a female Shark Ranger. Considering that it'll be the 40th Sentai show, I'm hoping that they'll do something special with it. If anything, they might have some callbacks to the previous installments in the same way how Boukenger commemorated the franchise. Also, I'm hoping that its premise will involve farms in some way.

On that note, what do you all think of Juohger's suits and robots?
