Strike: Animals go bowling in the new Zyuohger trailer


Who invited the zoo?

With one month left until the 40th Sentai series' premiere, another wild Zyuohger trailer has appeared. Right now, I'm still on a neutral position on how I feel about the show; however, the series' idea of having four of the members as a race of animal people takes me back to the martial arts masters from Juken Sentai Gekiranger, along with Dekaranger's Doggie Kruger and Kyoryuger's Torin. In other words, a part of me is down with this angle.

In case this is your first time hearing about the non-human characters, they're a race that's classified as the Zyuman, who're from the animal planet Zyuland. Their world was conquered by a group of alien outlaws called the Deathgalien, who now have their eyes on Earth. When they team up with a zoologist, they end up joining forces against this threat.

Anyway, it looks like we're in for another comedic installment in the series, as we see the Zyuman characters trying to adjust to Earth's customs. To an extent, it reminded me of the great parts of Shougeki Gouraigan since the show did this with its non-human cast. Other than that, the main robot's design looks a bit better as a suit, which might result in some neat action scenes when the show hits the airwaves on Feb. 14.

For those who missed out on the information about the show's staff and cast, you can check 'em out below. On that note, what are your thoughts on the show's concepts so far?
