Samurai Sentai Shinkenger

Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (侍戦隊シンケンジャー Samurai Sentai Shinkenjā?, [α]) is the title of Toei Company's thirty-third entry in its long-running Super Sentai Series of Japanese tokusatsu television series. It premiered on February 15, 2009, the week following the finale of Engine Sentai Go-onger.[1] It joins Kamen Rider Decade as a program featured in TV Asahi's Super Hero Time programming block, and following Decade's finale it airs alongside Kamen Rider Double. The series' motif is that of traditional Japanese culture.


For 18 generations, samurai of the Shiba House (志葉家 Shiba Ke?) have suppressed the evil intentions of the Gedoushu, malevolent spirits that enter the world of the living from gaps between buildings and other structures. Now, the youngest head of the Shiba Clan must gather his four vassals (家臣 kashin?) in order to battle the Gedoushu as the Shinkengers.


Based out of the Shiba Household (志葉家 Shiba Ke?), the Shinkengers use the kanji-based power called "Mojikara" (モヂカラ?, translated as "Character Power"), which is passed down from one generation to the next. Once becoming a Shinkenger, they must renounce their past lives in order to keep their friends and family safe in case a member of the Gedoushu targets them. The Shiba Household's manor is protected by a Mojikara barrier of "protect" (守 shu?), keeping the Shinkengers safe. They use a Gap Sensor (スキマセンサー Sukima Sensā?) to detect the presence of a Gedoushu and its whereabouts. Prior to battle, the team announces their arrival by the first person (usually Takeru Shiba) saying their Shinkenger name and then full name, followed by each subsequent Shinkenger stating "The same..." (同じく Onajiku?) followed by their color and full name. Takeru then says "The official Samurai Sentai..." (天下御免の侍戦隊 Tenkagomen no Samurai Sentai?), followed by the whole group saying "Shinkenger, on call!!" (シンケンジャー、参る!! Shinkenjā, mairu!!?).





The Shinkengers control sentient mecha called Origami (折神 Origami?). The five main Origami are normally in Emblem Mode (エンブレムモード Enburemu Mōdo?) until they assume Animal Mode (アニマルモード Animaru Mōdo?) to support their masters. But with Mojikara of "big" (大 dai?) and the command Origami Big Transformation (折神大変化 Origami Daihenge?), the Origami can be enlarged into giants with the Shinkengers using their Shinkenmaru as control sticks. The three support Origami, two of which were reclaimed after being lost in the last great battle with the Gedoushu, are summoned using each Secret Disk and require twice the amount of Mojikara than the regular Origami. In Shinkenger, the one of the Origami was Kyoryumaru, Samuel thinks he knows how to restore his memories. In Shinkenger Vs. Go-onger, Ren took the Secret Disk to upgrade into Soul Form (inculding Kyoryu Disk).
