‘Sentai Spectacular’

Shout! Factory TV will stream a special Super Sentai Spectacular: Kakuranger event this Saturday, May 20, at 3 pm ET. You can watch the event online, for free, at shoutfactorytvlive.com or Pluto TV, channel 512.

Hosted by Shout! Factory’s Brian Ward, comedian Hana Michels, Geek and Sundry/Twitch’s Erika Ishii and Power Rangers expert Shamus Kelley, the Super Sentai event will showcase top Ninja Sentai Kakuranger episodes, along with a live Q&A.

Ninja Sentai Kakuranger originally ran in Japan for one 53-episode season, from 1994 to 1995. A movie was released in 1994. The story involves “the Youkais, an ancient race of monstrous spirits” who, led by Daimaou, seek to destroy Earth. It falls to the Kakurangers, along with “three god generals” to defeat Daimaou and the Youkais before it’s too late!

Footage from Ninja Sentai Kakuranger was used later in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers series.

You can stream all 53 episodes, for free, at an ad-laden site called KissAsian. Shout! Factory is also having a special sale on the 10-DVD Ninja Sentai Kakuranger box set, which presents the entire season in Japanese with English subtitles.
