Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger

Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger (騎士竜戦隊リュウソウジャー, Kishiryū Sentai Ryūsōjā) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series and the 43rd entry of Toei's long-running Super Sentai series, succeeding Kaitou Sentai Lupinranger VS Keisatsu Sentai Patranger and following the four week special Super Sentai Strongest Battle. Although the series primarily aired in the Reiwa era, it is considered the final Heisei era series, since the last time an era changed, the era was based on when the show started.[1] It is the fourth Super Sentai to utilize the motif of dinosaurs, having been preceded by Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger (and Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger Brave), as well as the first to utilize the motif of knights.

StoryEdit

65 million years ago, the knights of the Ryusoul Tribe were selected to participate in a war campaign against the dictating Druidon Tribe who sought to rule Earth. But the Druidon's war campaign was halted by the meteor that brought the age of the dinosaurs to an end, forcing them to flee into space. Meanwhile, the Kishiryu were placed in a deep sleep as a failsafe should the Druidon return. The chosen knights choose to live in peace while passing their mantle down across generations. In the present day, the Druidon return to reclaim Earth as the current generation of knights, the Ryusoulgers, battle them with the support of Ui Tatsui and her father Naohisa Tatsui.[2][3][4]
