Someone on Facebook posted an ad for the new sentai season and Haruka's up there as the Yellow Ranger (LupinYellow). Is it real? Someone doubted it. So if anyone can confirm this or not I'd be grateful.

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

Last I heard they weren't announcing the cast for another month or so.

This is still a rumor last I heard. The hints about who the actress is is that she is a former idol, but the actress hasn't be revealed yet. People are guessing it is Haruka.

That's awesome that the rumors are true. Now I'll need to find a way to watch it.

 

She also has an official blog now.

Wow, I'm actually a bit surprised she was able to land that role.

SPAM Incoming!!! I made it a new topic, and in honor of Madara and his love of Power Rangers, I had to let him be the owner of this most awesome of threads. xD

 
Press Conference Part 1 Part 2

Back when Kudo was 13, during one of those Tsunku Talk DVD H!P Winter magazines, she told Mano Erina she wanted to be a Sentai Ranger. Mano said in 5 years when she was 18 she could. That dream is now a reality.

More behind spoiler box.

:cryalot:

 

I'm ecstatic! This is the greatest news ever!  Didn't I say this is what she should be doing when she announced her move into acting? While I did say somewhere that I thought she was fully capable of playing the Red Ranger, the fact is that the most interesting character in most sentai series is the Yellow Ranger.

 

Of course, now I have to wait till March or April till the first volume of episodes appears in my local Japanese video store. Unless someone uploads the first episode somewhere.

 

I wonder how many other performers cast in sentai series were famous like Kudo before they were cast. Not many, I'm guessing.

 

P.S. In the press conference footage, Kudo looks way more masculine than her two male teammates. Which doesn't surprise me at all.

It's got Duu in it. You best believe the international H!P groups will be just as on top of this as the international Sentai groups.

Quite a big win for her.
I always considered her to have kind of a child-like face, but she's finally starting to looking like a real lady.

They completely caked those guys' faces. lol

In honor of this announcement, I'm watching nothing but sentai episodes today.

Here are five of my favorite Yellow Rangers from past sentai seasons:

 

Chisato, aka MegaYellow, from Denji Sentai Megaranger (she's the one in the center):

Mio, aka Ressha Yellow, from Ressha Sentai Toqger (she's the one on the left):

Natsumi, the Yellow Ranger from Gekisou Sentai Carranger (she's on the left, in red):

Luka, the Yellow Ranger from Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger (on the left), with Mone, the Yellow Ranger from Tensou Sentai Goseiger:

Here's the trailer for the series.

 

I really dig the concept of cop rangers vs robber rangers. It also has a very strong Persona 5 vibe with the Lupin Rangers.

I fell out of the tokusatsu fandom but damnit, way to pull me back in. ;___;

This is gonna be HUGE for Duu's future acting prospects -- even if she doesn't transition to live action any further after this, Mao Ichimichi (the aforementioned Gokai Yellow) and Arisa Komiya (Yellow Buster from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters) are both super famous voice actresses in their own right... heck, Komiya is part of the Love Live juggernaut now, so that says everything, really. I'm gonna have to keep an eye on this!

This is the biggest entertainment career step for a graduated H!P member since Goto signing with Avex, yes? And potentially bigger considering how Goto flamed out.

 

Am I forgetting someone?

 

(And don't give me Koharu's modeling career. This and Goto-to-Avex both have much wider potential reach in terms of overall audience and demographics.)

Mano was in a Kamen Rider movie and was the lead in a live-action Patlabor series. (I have the series but have yet to watch it. Thanks for the reminder.)

Plus, here's a shot I took from the train back from Tokyo Big Sight two years ago that shows the location used in the clip:
