The 45th Sentai series is getting set to make its debut in Japan, and it’s time we said hello to the Avataro Sentai DonBrothers.
The Sentai – Japanese for some form of military unit like a squadron – series have been running for over four decades in Japan now. On March 6, 2022, the 46th series will make its debut, a mere week after the end of the 45th series, Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger.
The new series will follow Don Momotaro, a young man who came to Earth as a child. He is a competent swordsman and cannot tell a lie.
The theme song for this season is “I Am The Only One!” performed by Morisaki Win. The cast danced to the theme song at the announcement press event.
As with every new Sentai series, there is no guarantee we will ever see it come to the U.S. as a season of Power Rangers. Ever since we went to a two-season format in 2011 with Power Rangers Samurai and Power Rangers Super Samurai, we’ve been jumping over some different Sentai series. Hasbro is keeping the two season concept, but seems to be a bit quicker about it. We’re currently getting ready to wrap up Dino Fury which is based on the the 2019 Sentai series, Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger.
There is also a chance we will never see another true adaptation of a Japanese season moving forward. Hasbro has been cutting its ties with the Japanese version, and what exactly that means for new seasons and movies remains to be seen.
