Uchu Sentai Kyuranger vs. Space Squad (宇宙戦隊キュウレンジャー VS スペース・スクワッド, Uchū Sentai Kyuurenjā bāsasu Supēsu Sukuwaddo) is a Japanese superhero crossover film between characters from Uchu Sentai KyurangerIcon-crosswiki.png and the Metal Hero Series, following their appearance in Kyuranger's 18th EpisodeIcon-crosswiki.png. It is intended to be the second installment of the Space Squad series of films. In the film, Hammie is marked as an intergalactic criminal after she is suspected of stealing a powerful Kyutama, which causes discord between two differing factions of Kyurangers, one led by Lucky who attempts to harbor her, while the other is led by Tsurugi who is forced to declare Lucky's faction as fugitives.

Synopsis

Set four years after Don Armage's defeat, the universe is now at peace, until Hammie from the Kyurangers suddenly steals the newly developed Neo Kyutama, and her fellow Kyuranger and Space Federation President Tsurugi Ohtori is forced to declare her a wanted criminal due the danger the Neo Kyutama poses should it fall into the wrong hands. Lucky and some of the Kyurangers refuse to believe Hammie became evil and contest Tsurugi's decision, causing a rift amidst the team that worsens when Space Sheriffs Geki Jumonji and Shu Karasuma intervene. Little they know that the events are masterminded by the Genmakuu organization, who has sent one of their top-member, Space Ninja Demost, who also revived Mele, Juzo Fuwa, Basco Ta Jolokia, and Escape to assist him in his plan.

Plot

Space Sheriff Shu Karasuma and Toma Amagi, the current Jiraiya, members of Space Squad, locate and attempt to arrest Space Ninja Demost from the criminal organization Genmakuu, but he escapes through a portal to the Kyurangers' universe with Shaider chasing after him. There, the universe has been rebuilding since Don Armage's defeat four years ago under Tsurugi Ohtori's leadership while the Kyurangers have parted ways to live their lives until Shou Ronpo discovers that Hammie stole four of the newly developed Neo Kyutama. This causes a division upon the Kyurangers who those following Tsurugi who seek her arrest while Lucky and the rest wanting to find Hammie and try to find out the reason for her actions.

Hammie brings the Kyutama to Demost, who uses them to revive Mere, Juzo Fuwa, Basco Ta Jolokia, and Escape to serve under him. He then sends the five to attack the other Kyurangers in a hit-and-run, worsening Hammie's creditability as Shu and his fellow Space Sheriff Geki Jumonji offer their aid. It would be revealed that Hammie is being extorted by Demost who is holding her mentor hostage after she was assumed dead during Jark Matter's reign of terror, the space ninja forcing Hammie to comply with the order to assassinate Tsurugi.

Hammie makes the attempt when Tsurugi makes a public announcement of stepping down in light of the recent events, only to hesitate as Geki and Shu reveal her forced compliance to Demost as he is exposed as one of Tsurugi's aides in disguise, Naga and Balance having rescued Hammie's master as added evidence. Demost attempts to kill Hammie when Mele, having feigned loyalty while becoming a friend to the fellow chameleon-themed warrior, sacrifices herself. The Kyurangers, Gavan, and Shaider defeat Demost with Juzo, Basco, and Escape returning to the afterlife after his spell is broken. Following Geki's offer to Lucky to join the Space Squad, he and Shu take Demost back to their universe and are informed by Jiraiya about a massive terrorist attack led by Genmakuu. This makes Geki consider scouting some other new members for the Space Squad to deal with such incidents.

Notes

  • According to Space Squad writer Naruhisa Arakawa, Machineman from Seiun Kamen Machineman was his most wanted Toei Hero that he was planned to added in the sequel.[1] The character was left out of the sequel because of budget concerns.
  • Of the three current Space Sheriffs, Kai HyugaIcon-crosswiki.png/Sharivan is the only one not to appear. This is due to the retirement of his actor, Riki MiuraIcon-crosswiki.png, from the entertainment industry.[2]
  • Several English romanizations of the Metal Heroes' names were shown in this film for the first time:
    • Space Wolf Juspion
    • Jiban The Mobile Cop
    • Janperson Fight For Justice
  • Luka MillfyIcon-crosswiki.png appearing and getting into a scuffle with Raptor 283Icon-crosswiki.png is a reference to both characters being portrayed by M • A • OIcon-crosswiki.png.
  • The cameo appearance of Ryouma Kagawa/FireIcon-crosswiki.png in this film marks the first return of this character over 26 years after the final episodeIcon-crosswiki.png of SolbrainIcon-crosswiki.png.
  • Shou does not transform into Ryu Commander in this movie, and as such is the only Kyuranger not to be part of either side during the team's conflict, despite appearing transformed on the poster.
  • This is the first feature length installment in the Space Squad franchise to not be written by Naruhisa Arakawa, instead being written by Kyuranger head writer Nobuhiro Mouri.
  • When Geki says Space Squad needs to team up with a rescue force, there is a cut to Shu saying "Rescue?" This is a reference to Hiroaki Iwanaga, Shu's actor, who previously portrayed Captain Eiji Ishiguro/R5 in Tomica Hero Rescue Force in 2008.
  • In an interview with Tom ConstantineIcon-crosswiki.png, director Koichi SakamotoIcon-crosswiki.png revealed that Kyuranger vs. Space Squad is regarded as "Episode 1.5" of Space Squad as opposed to Episode 2, which would come later.[3]
