Ninja Sentai Kakuranger

Ninja Sentai Kakuranger was Toei Company Limited’s eighteenth production of the Super Sentai television series. The name given to this series by Toei for international distribution is Ninja Rangers. Action footage from the series was used in the third season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers.

Four hundred years ago, the ninja and the Youkai had a great war. The legendary Sarutobi Sasuke and other four ninja sealed the Youkai Commander Nurarihyon and all his Youkai’s energies away in a cave protected by the “Seal Door”. In the present, one of the few remaining Youkai, Kappa, tricks Sarutobi Sasuke and Kirigakure Saizo’s descendants, Saizou and Sasuke, into releasing the Youkai by opening the “Seal Door”. Now these two, joined by three other descendants of great ninja, become the Kakuranger to fight the reinvigorated Youkai with the aid of the Sanshinshou. However, the Kakurangers have their work cut out for them as the Youkai are slowly being united under one banner.

The movie version of Ninja Sentai Kakuranger, directed Shōhei Tōjō and written by Noboru Sugimura, premiered in Japan on April 16, 1994, at the Toei Super Hero Fair. It was originally shown as a triple feature alongside the feature film versions of Blue SWAT and Kamen Rider J. The villains in the movie consisted of the One-Eyed Brothers and Ōnyūdō. The movie was filmed between Episodes 7 and 8, but is set after the events of 8.

The Kakuranger team was the main focus in the 1994 3D featurette Super Sentai World, which features them teaming up with the four previous Super Sentai teams (Fiveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, and Dairanger).

A second crossover film was released in the form of Chōriki Sentai Ohranger: Ohré vs. Kakuranger. It was a 1996 direct-to-video movie which features the Kakuranger team working together with the Ohranger team to defeat a common adversary.
