Toei's Live-Action Akibaranger Show Uniforms Revealed

Trio protects Akihabara in series by Kamen Rider's Tazaki, Tiger & Bunny's Satou, Spice & Wolf's Arakawa, Ghost in the Shell's Kawai

Bandai's Tamashii Nations website revealed the uniforms of Toei's live-action Hikōnin Sentai Akibaranger (Unofficial Sentai Akihabara Rangers) television series. The story follows three protagonists who live in Akihabara's Electric Town among other otaku. When the trio learn that a malevolent entity plans to annihilate their neighborhood, they become warriors to wipe out evil — with the help of super gear created by a beautiful and brilliant genius.

The staff of Akibaranger boasts several live-action special-effects (tokusatsu) and anime veterans, such as director Ryuta Tazaki (Kamen Rider), director/character designer Keiichi Satou (Karas, Tiger & Bunny), writer Naruhisa Arakawa (Kamen Rider Kuuga, Spice and Wolf, Steel Angel Kurumi), and composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Death Note, Eden of the East).

Despite being a formal Toei production, it has "Unofficial" in its title to separate it from the "official" Super Sentai titles such as this year's Tokumei Sentai Gobusters.
