TV-Asahi Website has announced that there will be two crossover special episodes between Kamen Rider Saber and Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger before the release of the Superhero Senki movie. The Kamen Rider Saber episode for the “Movie Release Commemoration Combined Special” will title “Chapter: A world where World Pirates come and go” and Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger is Episode 20!: “Swordsmen and World Pirates. A brother’s oath”. Howevere, it will not be a one-hour but will instead be two separate episodes with connected stories.
Kamen Rider Saber episode will see Zocks from Zenkaiger appear in Saber’s world while chasing Orihime Warudo. Touma and others are shocked to see Zocks dancing during Henshin. While in Zenkaiger it will be, Reika Shindai & Ryoga Shindai from Saber who will appear in Zenkaiger’s World. The two Riders will be puzzled at first to witness the comical world of Zenkaiger. But will slowly adapt in the episode. Additionally, images from the Movie Release Commemoration Combined Special crossover were also released –See below.
The idea of Crossover was brought up by Kamen Rider Saber Producer – Kazuhiro Takahashi by saying “Let’s do ‘Combined Special’ in commemoration of movie release?”. But Zenkaiger Producer – Chihiro Inoue resisted the idea by saying “Don’t look at Zenkai Brains that easily!” “Saber which is near ending will get dissolved full throttle!”.
Even though both the shows are by Toei and broadcast on TV-Asahi, there is a lot of work to be done for this. But that wasn’t the main reason for resistance. Just like Chihiro Inoue said, Saber’s staff didn’t actually understand the terrifying ‘Zenkai Brains’.
In the end, it was Screenwriter Nobuhiro Mouri who accepted the idea. He said, “Rather than having a defensive attitude, let’s go with Saber getting stimulated by Zenkai Brains!“. With this, it is going to come true next week.
Tojitendo who had captured all the Parallel Worlds will send Orihime Warudo to Saber World and Hikoboshi Warudo to Zenkaiger World. Orihime and Hikoboshi are the deities who meet once a year on the day of Tanabata (July 7). Yatsude will have a line in the show “Tanabata is already over”.
Kamen Rider Saber X Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger: Superhero Senki will commemorate the Kamen Rider’s 50th Anniversary and Super Sentai’s 45th Anniversary. Superhero Senki will premiere in Japanese cinemas this July 22, 2021.
