Donbrothers VS Zenkaiger

The crossover special Avataro Sentai Donbrothers vs. Zenkaiger has been revealed as a theatrical release after the finale of the 46th Sentai series. The special will be released in Japan later in the year with a special Zanglass Sword and Avataro Gear released, which is featured in the upcoming special. The highly anticipated crossover will feature the 45th anniversary Sentai and the 46th Super Sentai series as both casts unite for a spectacular event.

Avataro Sentai Donbrothers has recently concluded as the 46th installment of the Super Sentai franchise, with a total of 50 episodes aired before handing off to Ohsama Sentai KingOhger. The series was an indirect sequel to Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger by including the Gear-based gimmick seen in the past series and Zenkaizer Black, Kaito played by Kiita Komagine.


Zenkaiger celebrated the 45th anniversary of Super Sentai with Rangers using Zenkai Gears which were themed on past Ranger teams and the Robo of each series, with a total of 6 Rangers, 2 Dark Rangers, and a G-Rosso exclusive Ranger. Donbrothers included Momotaro-themed Rangers that used the Avataro Gears to transform, featuring a total of 7 Rangers, with 6 Tokusatsu-themed Noto warriors. 

Donbrothers Festival Continues With Zenkaiger 

The latest announcements for the team of the 46th Sentai were revealed after the finale episode was released last week. This included the crossover special Avataro Sentai Donbrothers vs. Zenkaiger and will bring together both teams and cast together. The theatrical release will be coming to cinemas exclusively in Japan, with the movie released on DVD and Blu-Ray later in the year. The special will be the 29th installment of the VS series, which has brought together many team collaborations. 


The attendants have returned to the candy cafe “Colorful” from their journey around the parallel world. However, there, a new Kashiwamochiwald and Zox, who became “Kashiwamochi King”, ruled Zenkaitopia!

On the other hand, in the world of the DonBrothers, one year after Taro left, the five companions continued to fight with Jiro as the leader while sending a fulfilling private life. 
Meanwhile, Taro, who has regained his memory, visits the cafe “Donbura”.

Taro is congratulated on his return, but at the same time, all the members ask him to leave the DonBrothers. Immediately after deciding to walk their respective paths, the Kikaiki reappears and attacks Taro!
When the incidents that broke out in the two worlds are connected by an “edge” that transcends dimensions, the full-throttle miracle battle of the two Super Sentai begins!

Story Synposis of Avataro Sentai Donbrothers VS Zenkaiger

The movie will take place one year after the finale of Avataro Sentai Donbrothers, while also taking place after Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger vs. Kiramager vs. Senpaiger for the team of Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger. The movie will also debut special modes for Zenkaizer and Don Momotaro, along with the Don Zenkai Blade and Victory Super Avataro Gear. This special Zanglass Sword will be used by both Rangers and the Sword and new gear will be released as a limited-edition deluxe toy. 


The special will finally answer how Kaito becomes Zenkaizer Black and an Administrator throughout the 46th Sentai series via the prologue. The Ranger was an allied character in Avataro Sentai Donbrothers, but the series had yet to reveal the events leading up to his mentor status. It will also be exciting to see the return of the Zenkaiger cast, including Stacey who was an evil Ranger turned good. The film will likely address this before starting the special event that sees both Ranger teams united against Kashiwa Mochi World and the Hitosuki, Kikaiki. Here is the full main cast featured in the upcoming special crossover movie.

Avataro Sentai Donbrothers VS Zenkaiger will be released in cinemas exclusively in Japan on May 3. The special crossover movie will then be released on September 27 on Blu-ray & DVD release, with the limited release of the DX Don Zenkai Blade and Victory Super Gear. 

The Donbrothers Don Blaster Memorial Edition is scheduled for release in November 2023. This will be the first Memorial Edition release for the 46th Super Sentai series, with the King-Ohja Gear only available while stocks last.

Long time fan of Tokusatsu fan since Power Rangers was first released in the 90s. Whereas most Superhero fans grew up with DC Comics and Marvel, my childhood was surrounded by releases from Saban Entertainment such as Beetleborgs, along with anime, and other various fads of the generation. Anime is also a great passion with Digimon, That Time I Was Reincarnated As A Slime, and Demon Slayer being significant favorites. It was the love of both Power Rangers and Digimon that led to the path of becoming a Senior Writer for The Illuminerdi.
