2012 Super Sentai Series title leaked!
I may be a few days late on this- oh, Heaven forbid!- but I'm hearing this from numerous sites, so it may be safe to assume this is not a prank and is thus okay to post this before the official announcement is made. The newest series in the long-running Super Sentai Series is supposedly going to be called:
"Tokumei Sentai Gobuster"
("Special-mission Taskforce Ghost-buster")
If you're wondering if this series will have anything to do with the two American comedy films from the '80s, I don't have an answer for you since this information is so raw. (IMO, there will be no connection other than through the name.) But the news on different sites suggests that ghosts and ghouls will be the villains for the new series. Now, this is very early information about the 36th Super Sentai Series, and we will not be getting any official news- usually just an announcement of the title from Toei and Bandai, and casting for the show- until later in October, and toy designs will not be seen until November.
(Can anyone read this? I can't, but it's the "evidence" that all these other sites are toting about.)
In other news, it is suspected that the current 35th Anniversary series, "Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger", will be extended a small number of episodes out to 55 (which is not unheard of, but is on the higher end amongst previously-aired series), pushing the debut of "...Gobuster" back a little later into January 2012. The longest-running Super Sentai Series was the debut series, 1975's "Himitsu Sentai GoRanger" which ran 75 episodes over a period of one-and-a-half years. (By contrast, the shortest series- and only one to be canceled due to low ratings- was the series immediately afterwords, 1977's "JAKQ Dengeki Tai", which ran for only 35 episodes.)
