For eighteen generations, samurai of the Shiba House (志葉家 Shiba Ke?) have suppressed the evil intentions of the Gedoushu, malevolent spirits that enter the world of the living from gaps between buildings and other structures. Now, Takeru Shiba, the youngest head of the Shiba Clan must gather his four vassals (家臣 kashin?) in order to battle the Gedoushu under the revived Doukoku Chimatsuri as the Shinkengers. However, as they are joined by his childhood friend Genta, the vassals slowly learn that there's a reason for Takeru's behavior that sets him apart from his predecessors.

Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (侍戦隊シンケンジャー Samurai Sentai Shinkenjā?, is the title of Toei Company's thirty-third entry in its long-running Super Sentai Series of Japanese tokusatsu television series. It premiered on February 15, 2009, the week following the finale of Engine Sentai Go-onger, and ended on February 7, 2010. It joined Kamen Rider Decade as a program featured in TV Asahi's Super Hero Time programming block, and following Decade's finale it aired alongside Kamen Rider W. Its footage is being used for the 2011 American series Power Rangers Samurai. The catchphrase for the series is "Authorized by divine providence!!" (天下御免!! Tenkagomen!!?).

Shinkenger is a really good story. Not only has great fighting scenes but also gets into you easily.

You'll be inside the battle agains Gedoushuu and understand how is it to be a Sentai - like the other 37, but all of them has their secret. Shinkenger mastered the way of surprising us, with a lot of twists and fierce battles. It's important to say we're invited to start a reflection about friendship, courage, team work and what makes a true leader. Since it's like a nation symbol, like ninjas, it makes me think why did they take so much to work the samurai theme... lol Even for modern concepts and thoughts, it's nice to see the samurai culture in action. There's also the care of building deep characters even among the villains. Some of them also have a past which is great to explore, like Juuzou and Dayuu. It's so much more in Gedoushuu than getting out of Sanzu River. They're also thinking creatures, dealing with emotion and concerns.

Samurai Sentai Shinkenger is a masterpiece. The whole concept adapts really well into our reality without losing its magic. Also, the psychologic analysis in all of them really makes a difference. Hope you guys enjoy it.

Since it's American counterpart is poor in my opinion, unlike Power Rangers Samurai this blows it a giant amount out of the water. Shinkenger you can say is one of the best sentais from the 2000s which can make a lot of nostalgia factors to those who were fans of Maskman or Rurouni Kenshin which are two I can recommend if you love or like this show. Takeru is one of the greatest bad-ass red warriors, he's complex(no spoilers), his chemistry with Mako, and maybe you could consider how his development with his fellow vassals and childhood friend Genta. The designs of both the team and villains are just very cool and very unique one of my favorites. The rest of the cast is unforgettable, and there is some interesting dark villains like Juzo, Dayu and Akumaro. The opening credits of the show is really kick ass since the band Psychic Lover also did Dekaranger(other sentai season). However if I had to make some down parts to the show it would be where you later near the end it has cliches that are either weird or eyes rolling. Another I say is bad is where the humor is to me sour where it can be just odd. In the end, I love this season despite flaws.
