The anime Go, Go, Loser Ranger! (a.k.a. Sentai Daishikkaku in Japanese) has released an extended trailer. Part of it is the same footage from their promotional video released last month. However, 45 seconds have been added, making the new trailer almost two minutes long. The new footage tells what actors play the Divine Dragon Rangers.
We now know that Yūichi Nakamura plays Red Keeper, Go Inoue plays Blue Keeper, Kensho Ono plays Yellow Keeper, Kousuke Toriumi plays Green Keeper, and M.A.O plays Pink Keeper.
Some actors had previously been revealed: Yūsuke Kobayashi plays Fighter D, Daishi Kajita plays Hibiki Sakurama, and Yumika Yano plays Yumeko Suzukiri.
The anime, which is scheduled to come out sometime next year, is directed by Keiichi Satō, known for Tiger & Bunny. The person in charge of series composition is Keiichirō Ōchi, whose credits include The Quintessential Quintuplets and The Demon Girl Next Door. The animation is being produced by Yostar Pictures, a company known for working on such titles as Arknights: Prelude to Dawn and Azur Lane Queen’s Orders. Director Satō became Yostar Pictures’ creative director in 2021.
The anime is based on the manga Go, Go, Loser Ranger by Negi Haruba, which is published in America by Kodansha USA Publishing. Kodansha gave this description for the plot:
When the Monster Army invaded Earth thirteen years ago, the Divine Dragon Rangers rose up to stop them! With the war raging on, these great heroes are mankind’s last hope!
…or are they?
In truth, the invaders were subjugated within a year, forced to continue to crank out a monster a week for the Rangers to crush in front of their adoring fans! But one monster has had enough. Something has to change! He’ll rebel against the might of the Dragon Rangers and destroy them all…from the inside!
