Bakuage Sentai BoonBoomger – Japanese Power Rangers 48th series

The 48th Sentai series is getting set to make its debut in Japan, and it’s time we said hello to the Bakuage Sentai BoonBoomger.


The Sentai – Japanese for some form of a military unit like a squadron – series have been running for nearly five decades in Japan now. On March 3, 2024, the 48th series will make its debut, a mere week after the end of the 47th series, Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger, finishes its run.

The series will see a car-shaped alien named Boondorio Boonderas crashland on Earth. He is taken in by Raiya Hando (Haruhi Iuchi) who will become Bun Red. Along with Bun Blue/Ishiro Meita (Yuki Hayama) and Bun Pink/Mirai Shifuto (Suzuki Miu), they will take on the Space Mafia Hishiriyan. Along the way they will pick up two additional members of their team, Bun Black/Jou Akuse (Saito Ryu) and Bun Orange/Gemba Brueki (Satoru Soma).

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. 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’ve wrapped up Dino Fury which is based on the 2019 Sentai series, Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger. For the current season, Cosmic Fury, the U.S. is using original Ranger costumes for the first time, but is using the Zords of the 41st Sentai series, Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.

If the U.S. will ever use Japanese suits again remains to be seen.
