Merry Christmas!

Christmas, while purely a secular Holiday in Japan, is often featured in Super Sentai. Even if they celebrate it differently, I really like the idea that the Japanese took the Western idea of Christmas and incorporated it into their country. There was been several episodes of Super Sentai featuring Christmas. In Gekiranger Ken tries to help a boy depressed during Christmas. On Go-onger, Sosuke meets Santa and helps him out. This year Shinkenger features the Christmas tree getting set up, with Daigoyou acting as the star on the tree. Also - the upcoming Shinkenger vs Go-onger movie is featuring Christmas also, with everyone dressed up as Santa.

Anyway, here are some images from those various episodes. I hope you enjoy!


~~~ Please have a SUPER Merry Christmas! ~~~



UPDATE: Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger featured a very festive Christmas episode - with GokaiSilver merging GokaiRed and GokaiGreen's Ranger Keys into a single Christmas themed costume! Returning Legendary Ranger, Battle Kenya (from Battle Fever J) appears dressed as Santa, along with the traditional Christmas Panda!
