1. Shishi Voyager
2. Ookami Voyager
3. Oushi Voyager
4. Chameleon Voyager
5. Kajiki Voyager

- We will switching from cube theme in Zyuoger to sphere theme in Kyuranger, how nice.

- Finally, the suit design for Kyuranger is extremely futuristic. All ranger share little theme each other and in unique individual design.

- Pink ranger is the first to have a cupid style wing, instead of bird-like wing as in Jetman and Red Zyuohger

- As we know, this will be the 41st Super Sentai. A very strong reboot in the series with all nine rangers formation. Love it.

Boukenger 10 Years After - Will It Be Possible?

The first "10 Years After" V-Cinema for Super Sentai was done by Hurricanger team, back in 2013. The movie was made for a ten years commemorate of the series, in which Hurricanger was running in 2002. The whole idea was coming from Nao Nagasawa who later work hard to re-assemble the team and put the proposal to TOEI who approved it.

Later on, in 2015, "Dekaranger 10 Years After" was also taking place where the whole cast of Dekaranger taking part of it. Super Sentai fans are aware that Abaranger 10 Years After was not possible because some of the actors were not available. The reasons being the actor is retired, not interested, or due to agency being not agreeable with the contract.

As per September 2016, the mark of 10 Years After movie have reaching its deadline and we got less information about it. Supposedly, the year 2016 should be on Magiranger, but there already enough evident that Magiranger 10 Years After will not likely take place due to their actors being unavailable.

Now, with still many months to go, the 10 Years after movie is reaching the Boukenger timeline. Will it be possible to have Boukenger 10 Years After? With quick internet research, here the facts for each actor/actress in the most current situation as per this writing:

The current photograph of Boukenger team as per their personal blogs:
Mitsuomi Takahashi, Yasuka Saito, Masashi Mikami, Chise Nakamura, Haruka Suenaga, Masayuki Deai, Mami Yamasaki

Actor Mitsuomi Takahashi (高橋 光臣 ) = Satoru Akashi / Bouken-Red
He was quite active in later Super Sentai series. He appeared in Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle, of course as Satoru Akashi. He also take part in Gokaiger Episode 21 for Boukenger tribute. His major role in acting was as Umechan Sensei (NHK, 2012) as Toshio Matsuoka.  As per his blog, he is still active in entertainment business, so his status for Boukenger 10 Years After should be AVAILABLE

Actor Yasuka Saitō (齋藤 ヤスカ) = Masumi Inoe  / Bouken-Black
His last major role listed in Wikipedia is Cinema "Love Place" as gay couple with Yusuke Arai (2013). One of his last drama is  Specter woman Gakuen (2014, Chiba TV). He also noted as being worked as photographer in agency. His status should also be AVAILABLE.

Actor Masashi Mikami (三上 真史) = Souta Mogami / Bouken-Blue
He appeared in numbers of Kamen Rider Drive 2015 episodes. In 2010 played in Hoshisuna no Shima no Chiisana Tenshi ~Mermaid Smile~. He has currently in D-Boys acting group. His status should also be AVAILABLE.

Actress  Chise Nakamura (中村 知世) = Natsuki Mamiya / BoukenYellow
Chise is popular gravure model as in her time in Boukenger actually. Eversince then, her latest works listed in Japanese wikipedia was in 2014, a videowork released by E-net Frontier. As per her blog, she still quite active, so, it will also not big trouble to get her back into Boukenger 10 Years After. We can call her status as AVAILABLE.

Actress  Haruka Suenaga (末永 遥) =  Sakura Nishihori / Bouken Pink
Haruka reportedly married to Judo athlete who is a gold medalist in Athens Olympic. She also reported to appeared in 2016 July TV Asahi "Living from scratch - Dear, - was moved" TV show. Her cinema appearances looks a bit less. Can she takes part in Boukenger reunion movie? Should not much problem as she is still do entertainment business. She should also be AVAILABLE.

Actor Masayuki Deai (出合 正幸) = Eiji Takaoka / Bouken Silver
He is Bouken Silver and important part of the team for reunion.  He returned in 2010, appearing as the Trigger Dopant in Kamen Rider W Forever: A to Z/The Gaia Memories of Fate. More importantly he was Tessai/Kyoryu Grey in Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger! This made him the closer to Super Sentai world among the Boukenger team. His new drama role is in Monday Masterpiece Theater "Season 2 of the Shadow" (2016) as Totsuka Koichiro. He should be AVAILABLE for the decade movie with Boukenger.

Actress  Mami Yamasaki (山崎 真実) = Shizuka of the Wind
She was more active as gravure idols and model. She is one last important cast for Boukenger reunion movie. Her last movie listed as in "TERROR OF HOUSE "(8 May 29, 2015, Director: Tsunoda Hiroshiaki). She also recorded to appeared last in TV drama "Love Song" Episode 6 (May 16, 2016, Fuji TV). Can she made it to cinema Boukenger 10 Years After? Looking good and can counted as AVAILABLE it seems.

As can be seen, all of the major cast for Boukenger still actively in entertainment industry. Let's hope all of them interested to do the Boukenger 10 Years After movie and also TOEI to approved the idea. Boukenger may be not the most popular super sentai series in previous years, but I am very big fans of it.
