Production

The trademark for the series was filed by Toei Company on August 10, 2012. [2]

Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger is the third Sentai series with a dinosaur motif (after Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger and Bakuryū Sentai Abaranger ); this time mixed with electricity and up-tempo musical genres such as Samba. [3] Ryo Ryusei, who portrays Daigo Kiryu, said he will find it difficult to live up to the role as the hero in the series. Yamato Kinjo, who portrays Nobuharu Udo, turns 30 within the year and spoke of how he felt it might be difficult to portray a hero to children so much younger than he is. [4]

Critics have noted a drastic shift in the casting of Kyoryuger. Toei producer Takahito Ōmori commented on the lack of a yellow warrior in the series, something that has not happened since Dengeki Sentai Changeman , by noting that the color yellow has become associated with females for the modern generation of viewers and thus would not be able to properly portray the brutish strength a male character is capable of portraying to match with the concept that the characters beat their dinosaur partners in battle. Ōmori also stated that they chose to make the blue warrior aged 32 to insert some oyaji gags, while also noting the use of Papaya Suzuki as the ending theme's choreographer to insert some levity, hot-blooded actor Shinji Yamashita as the red warrior's father, and the inclusion of Shigeru Chiba as the series' narrator who gives a high tension style to the show. [5]

Notes

  1. Kyōryū (強竜) when literally translated means "Strong Dragon", but is actually a portmanteau of the Japanese words Kyō (, "strong") and Kyōryū (恐竜, "dinosaur"). In English, this roughly translates into "Strongosaur".
  2. Jouji Shibue previously portrayed Mamoru Chiba in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and Ibuki in Kamen Rider Hibiki .
  3. "Vamola" is Brazilian Portuguese for "leggo (let's go)".

Its protagonists are able to transform into not only their own unique, but also all of the previous 9 Heisei Kamen Rider phase 1 "Kamen Rider Kuuga - Kamen Rider Kiva" and All Showa Kamen Rider, each of which have their own unique power that the Decade can access. It began broadcasting the week following the finale of Kamen Rider Kuuga and was featured in Super Hero Time alongside the 2009 edition of the Super Sentai Series, Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
