Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger (忍風戦隊ハリケンジャー Ninpū Sentai Harikenjā?) was Toei Company Limited's 26th production of the Super Sentai television series. Its footage was used in the Americanized Power Rangers Ninja Storm.

Plot

In the Hayate's Way Ninja Academy, three of its pupils aren't exactly fitting in. But because their Sensei believes them to have potential, he regularly spends the morning personally subjecting them to rigorous training. While the other students are having their graduation ceremony, a group of evil space ninja known as the Jakanja infiltrated the school, killing most of the students. The school's Sensei, Mugensai, turned himself into a hamster to evade his pursuers. The trio was then taken to a secret base to become the legendary Hurricanegers to fight the Jakanja. But they also had to deal with the two ninja brothers of the Ikazuchi's Way Ninja Academy for a while because the Gouraigers were searching for the Evil Force that Jakanja was searching for. But once the Gouraigers abandoned their mad quest, they joined forces with the Hurricangers.

Episodes

The episodes this season are called "scrolls". Every title is a combination of two nouns with the character "to" which represents the word "and", thus making every episode have two subjects of note.

It should be mention that the second subject in the episode title has a tendency to be written in katakana, even if there is existing kanji.

Notes

  • The South Korean Power Rangers dub skipped ahead from Power Rangers Wild Force to Abaranger, omitting both Hurricaneger and Power Rangers Ninja Storm.
  • This is the first season since Gorenger whose name ends with "-ger" but not "-ranger".
  • The series has similarities with Choujuu Sentai Liveman and Ninja Sentai Kakuranger.
  • This series was originally called Dainin Sentai Ninjaman (Great Ninja Squadron Ninjaman).[2]
  • This was the first series since Choujuu Sentai Liveman to have a female ranger who's primary costume color was neither pink, yellow nor white.
  • The name "Hurricaneger" comes from and some of the concepts may have been inspired by the very first Harry Potter novel: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The Japanese name for the initial novel is Harii Potta to Kenja no Ishi; by combining the words "Harii" and "Kenja", it comes up with Hurricaneger. Likewise, elements such as the multiple ninja schools and the retrieval of a mystical artifact that can cause good and chaos to whomever controls it appears to be similar factors both in Hurricaneger and the first Harry Potter novel.
    • Another series very drawn by Harry Potter would emerge three years later.
    • Coincidentally, the Naruto anime series, which was also originally going to be magic-themed, started in 2002.
