Shuriken Sentai Ninninger VS Ressha Sentai ToQger Announced

Put the date in your diary, as Japanese cinemas will be full on January 23rd 2016 for Shuriken Sentai Ninninger VS Ressha Sentai ToQger.

For the uninitiated  Shuriken Sentai Ninninger centres around the evil warlord Gengetsu Kibaoni who was defeated 444 years ago by the Igasaki Clan to which he swore to destroy humanity, and again later the Kibaoni Army once again rose in the times of Last Ninja in which he was sealed by Yoshitaka Igasaki (Last Ninja). Yet again exactly 444 years later in 2015 Kyuemon Izayoi and Raizo Gabi, the Generals of Kibaoni, rise and start building up the empire again and try to revive Gengetsu Kibaoni. In this time, Tsumuji Igasaki, son of Last Ninja gathers the five predicted cousin Ninjas and hands them the Ichibantou swords for fighting the Kibaoni Army.

Ressha Sentai ToQger on the other hand follows five young people travelling on the Rainbow Line who have several problems: they’ll often arrive at a station only to find it’s been taken over by the evil Shadow Line, they can’t remember anything beyond their childhoods, and there are lost trains (Resshas) that need to be found.
