Kanpai Senshi After V

“The police and Self-Defense Force were powerless against evildoers hellbent on ruling the world. A new organization was created to defeat these villains… The Golden Warriors Treasure V: A team of five combat specialists. However, their drinking parties after battles became better known than the battles themselves, and they became known as the Cheers Soldiers, After V!”

After all those Super Sentai shows it was time for a parody and in 2014 we got one in the form of Kanpai Senshi After V. A show which follows the late night outs of the Sentai hero team Golden Warriors Treasure V.

The show focuses on their drinking parties over their battles against evil and is set in a restaurant which happens to be staffed by the villains they are fighting against, before heading to the karaoke bar.

The show currently consists of two 12 episode seasons, the second going by the name Shin Kanpai Senshi After V.

A 2015 fundraiser for the series successfully met its goal, which will eventually result in a third season and a movie, though no information about potential production or release dates have been announced yet.
