"Do you believe in Legends?"
On July the 1st, 2019, Vietnam's Transform Film co-operating with Dive Into Eden officially announced their own original tokusatsu series, Mighty Guardian (Chiến Thần).

The first entry is called Mighty Guardian: Lost Avian (Chiến Thần Lạc Hồng) - using Vietnamese Mythologies as the main concept. It's planned to start filming on January the 1st, 2020.

Synopsis

Trung Quan Nguyen is a rebellious last year high school student who is hated by the others. On his school's picnic, he'd found an ancient cube and opened it - leading to the fact that he had freed the ancient Vietnamese Mythologies monsters from an ancient seal made by the 18th King Hung (also known as the 18th "Lac" Guardian).

He also gained the Mighty Guardian: Lost Avian's power, became the 19th "Lac" Guardian - following the 18 Generations of King Hung's willpower to protect the Vietnamese people first and then the safety of humankind. He has to learn how to balance between his student's normal life and his Mighty Guardian's bizarre adventure as soon as possible, before the monsters and some other parties could join and take everything from him.

The story will follow his adventure and the meeting with some new friends, new partners. From those events, every life lessons were learnt by him to become a better man in the future - besides the fights with the villains.

But after all, this is just the beginning for the Vietnamese Mythologies' Universe and the Mighty Guardians' Omniverse.

The "Era of Justice".

Notes

  • While it has been claimed that Mighty Guardian is a direct answer to Japan's Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, the series also contains elements from Metal Heroes and Ultraman franchise.
  • It was actually announced in 2017, but it took time for Dive Into Eden and Transform Film to improve their skills and to pick the final concepts. Now, they've just claimed that they've planned for at least 15 following seasons.
    Long và Mười 1
  • Minh Long Pham - the leader of Dive Into Eden, is also the main script-writer of Mighty Guardian: Lost Avian, the temporary suit-actor for the trailer and the main vocalist/song-composer of EzBand.
  • Mighty Guardian: Lost Avian at first was designed just like a Kamen Rider by Duc Muoi Do. Then Hijiri-11 came up with the "Mighty Guardians' unique features" idea. The "unique features" list then was completed by Minh Long Pham - in order to tell the differences between the franchise and the other Toku-based series.
  • "Quan" - the main protagonist's name was a tribute to one of the Mighty Guardian: Lost Avian's designers - Nguyen Minh Quan Hoang (Hoàng Nguyễn Minh Quân) and its meaning is "a faithful gentleman". And Trung Quan Nguyen's characteristics and past were inspired by John Lennon - Minh Long's favorite musician.
  • In the Teaser, the actor who played Quoc Nam Dang is Nam Dai Han Tran. After that, Dai Han himself and Duc Muoi Do announced that he was no longer Nam, but he will continue to take part in this project with another supporting role.
  • Quan Lee - who played the mysterious role in the Trailer and was announced to be the next Mighty Guardian: Alpine Deity, originally auditioned to be Trung Quan Nguyen.
  • This is the first and only season in the "Era of Justice" that is an original story by any means. The following seasons had been claimed to re-use Dive Into Eden group's past works' concepts from six years ago.
  • It's interestedly that the first Mighty Guardian: Aqua Deity's design (or as known as the Aqua Guardian) shared the same helmet's vision with Kamen Rider Build SameBike Form, although the Guardian's one was designed right before Kamen Rider Build's official announcement of the TV show. But that design had shown Dive Into Eden group's youngest designer - Hoang Anh Dung Nguyen (Nguyễn Hoàng Anh Dũng)'s lack of knowledge at that time, so he had to design the armor again with the helps of Minh Long Pham and Hijiri-11.
  • It has been claimed that the Guardians's concepts (except the Sacred Horseman one) were inspired by the Vietnamese version of the Four Symbols. Also - due to some reasons, Duc Muoi Do decided to reveal four out of five Guardians' concepts and designs (Lost Avian, Alpine Deity, Aqua Deity and Sacred Horseman) right before the official trailer.
