The episode title is "Dokidoki Dōbutsu Rando" (どきどき動物ランド) with Wikipedia translated as "The Bustling Animal Land". The writer is Junko Komura, he write two episodes for Goseiger and one for Go-onger. His main works were in Gokaiger, which is a good series we all know. With this info, we expected high for the story writing part.
The opening song is simply titles as Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger by Hideaki Takatori. The music incoporated a lot on "jungle" choruses, added more uniqueness to the show. The style is J-Rock as usual very much Super Sentai feel.
Right after the opening song, we got to introduce with Yamato Kazakiri (風切 大和 ) actor by Masaki Nakao (中尾 暢樹 ). He is our red ranger and profession as Zoologist, also a Zoo tour guide. The main story revolved about his mysterious cube. The back story flash about his encounter with mysterious character who given his this cube, a potential backward story we going to see in Zyuohger.

and the late arrival Zyuoh Red , the only human who gain the power from Zyuland
Naria, the main female villain
as with many other previous Sentai, we no longer have female human form villain. Oh why Toei? You take out the fun seeing hot female villain in Super Sentai
the robo cockpit design for Zyuohger, all using cube navigator steering
Zyuoh King design with cube shape and pixel ornament
interestingly, the main human form of our sentai team only shown near the end of episode 1, the first of this kind in Super Sentai tradition. This is LEO, play by actor Shohei Nanba 南羽 翔平. He must be our warm and cheerful Yellow ranger character
the two female ranger are Sela セラ (柳 美稀 Yanagi Miki) and Amu アム (立石 晴香 Tateishi Haruka), We haven't known how are their character development yet
obviously our cold character is Green , Tusk タスク (渡邉 剣 Watanabe Tsurugi)
The ending game is guess the cube mini game for Japan TV viewer. Overall, very promising premise and premiere episode. Hopefully Sentai fans can get their redemption after mediocre performance of previous 2015 sentai, Ninninger. Episode two going to be aired February 21 2016, titled "Don't Underestimate This Planet Kono Hoshi o Nameru na yo" (この星をなめるなよ).
