Cult TV Essentials: Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger

“Unknown even to others, unknown even to the world, we become shadows to defeat evil!”.

Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger is Toei’s twenty-sixth production of the Super Sentai television series. It ran for 51 episodes. Its footage was used in the American series Power Rangers Ninja Storm (the end credits listed the show as titled Hurricane Rangers). On April 1, 2013, Shun Shioya, Nao Nagasawa, Kouhei Yamamoto, and Yujiro Shirakawa, who played Hurricane Red, Hurricane Blue, Hurricane Yellow, and Kabuto Raijer, respectively, announced that a 10th anniversary V-Cinema release called Ninpuu Sentai Hurricaneger: 10 Years After would be produced. This is the first time a movie has been made commemorating the anniversary of a single Sentai series. The movie will be a direct to DVD and Blu-ray release.

In the Hayate Way’s Ninja Academy, three pupils are not exactly fitting in. But because their sensei believes they have potential he regularly spends the morning personally and rigorously training them. While the other students are having their graduation ceremony a group of evil space ninjas known as the Jakanja infiltrate the school killing most of the students. The school’s sensei, Mugensai, turns himself into a hamster to evade his pursuers. The trio is then taken to a secret base to become the legendary Hurricanegers to fight Jakanja. Later in the series they have to fight with the two ninja brothers of the Ikazuchi Way’s Ninja Academy due to their respective schools’ rivalries. With the aid of the mysterious Shurikenger the two ninja groups set their rivalry aside and join forces to stop Jakanja.
