Check out Uchu Sentai Kyuranger's otherworldly cast

This team is out of this world

Ever since Kyuranger's suits were revealed, I was behind the idea of a constellation-themed Sentai team with nine members. With the show's cast and staff announced, the franchise's 41st show is starting to look more interesting.

Even though the team of aliens from different galaxies based on their Ranger name, the gang consists of five humans and four nonhuman-looking extraterrestrials. Hell, I love that the team has a space robot bull that's a professional wrestler (Champ/Oshi Black) and a man who wants to be the best chef in the universe (Spada/Kajiki Yellow).

With Lucky/Shishi Red, a space adventurer; Hammy/Chameleon Green, a space ninja; Naga/Hebitsukai Silver, a character who lacks emotions; Stinger/Scorpion Orange, a mysterious person; Garu/Okami Blue, a half beastman; Balance/Tenbin Gold, a thief who's a mechanical being; and Rapter 283/Washi Pink, a pilot android, being part of the main cast, their relationship could lead to some fun moments.

From the looks of it, Kyuranger will feature the nine members fighting together from the get-go. As the heroes get ready to save the universe from the clutches of the Jack Matter organization, it'll be interesting to see how they work together to fight the group's Monsters-of-the-Week.

Silly enough, the show's opening song is called "LUCKY STAR," which obviously has nothing to do with the anime and manga of the same name. Since "Kyutama Dancing" happens to be the name of Kyuranger's ending theme, it looks like the series is continuing its trend of featuring a signature dance at the end of each episode.

Right now, my only small concern is that Takayuki Shibasaki (Kamen Rider OOO Wonderful: The Shogun and the 21 Core Medals and  Kamen Rider Drive the Movie: Surprise Drive's Director) is directing the series, since his action scenes in his stuff can range from being fun to alright; however Hirofumi Fukuzawa's (GoGo Sentai Boukenger's Bouken Red Suit Actor, Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger's Gokai Red Suit Actor) role as the show's Action Director could result in some entertaining confrontations between the Kyuranger and Jack Matter. If anything, we'll have to wait for the show's Feb. 12 premiere to see how it turns out.
