Super Sentai Hand Offs: A Look Back, Dekaranger to Go-Busters

Gokaiger to Go-Busters Passing of Torch
In a few weeks, Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters will come to an end and will pass the Super Sentai torch to the 37th Super Sentai series, Juuden Sentai Kyoryuger. In the meantime, let's check out the past "hand offs".

Since the end of Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, TOEI shows a short transition special as a "passing of baton" from the current Super Sentai series (which had ended) to the next one. This tradition continues until this day.

Red warriors/rangers of both previous and new Super Sentai teams meet in somewhat “I'll leave Earth's protection to you!” way. But with a exception of Kai Ozu / MagiRed and Satoru Akashi / BoukenRed, which only talked on their phone changers. Additionally, both rangers didn't met in the “Boukenger vs Super Sentai” film, as Tsubasa / MagiYellow and Hikaru / MagiShine are the ones who represented Magirangers.

The next series, directed by Koichi Sakamoto (Kamen Rider Fourze) and written by Riku Sanjo (Kamen Rider W), Juuden Sentai Kyoryuger premieres February 17th, 2013.

    The Bouken / Geki hand off is my favorite of the group... Just the way they high five and then GekiRed slowly slides in from the side with the end of Boukenger On The Road playing... Goosebumps.

    I cried at the Gokaiger/Go-Busters Hands-Off sequence. That was my all-time favorite next to Dekaranger/Magiranger, Gekiranger/Boukenger, Gekiranger/Go-Onger, Go-Onger/Shinkenger and Goseiger/Gokaiger

    Action wise, the Goon-Shinken would always be my favorite, especially because it was foreshadowing their battle in the VS movie.

    However, cinematography-wise, the Gosei-Shinken was awesome, with GoseiRed image shown in ShinkenRed's katana... that was plain beautiful and nicely staged

  6. the best ones were Go-onger to Shinkenger and Gosiger to Goakiger, Shinkenger to Goseiger and Gokaiger to Go-busters made cry manly.

    What I absolutely love about watching these again is seeing how the characters evolve from original concept to their final form. GekiRed in the Bouken handoff was just... there. Look at how more animated he is when he hands it off to Go-OnRed.

    And the Gokai-Gobuster hand off? That punch was such a Marvelous thing to do. And it wasn't even "I place the earth's protection in your hands" it felt more like "Heh, you're good enough for this" Which again was totally a Marvelous thing to do.

    You know if there is a kamen rider handoff it should have begin with faiz,
    faiz- it stars with faiz leavingin his motorcycle until he saw blade coming with his cycle nodding to fiaz he will do exactly like he did faiz nods back and then he left , blade -before blade walks away in some forest he saw hibiki jumping from the tree then he gives thumbs up to hibiki wishing him good luck, Hibiki- before he walks away he noticed kabuto and kabuto pats on hibikis shoulder that he will be fine and hibiki does the same thing wishing him good luck ,
    kabuto - kabuto leaves with his motorcycle far away from the viewers then out of nowhere a train appears from the sky and comes out of what appears to be Den O in his motorcycle doing a pose to the viewers ,
    Den O- den O waves goodbye to the audience before going inside the denliner and left in the night as Kamen rider Kiva in the top of his castle doran looks at it departing to the moon at night. Kiva- as kiva walks away in the black background he saw a card with a picture of him and as he is about to take it decade picks it up and kiva forgets about the card and nods to decade good luck and moves on.
    Decade- wethen see the photo of decade flying away around the wind in fuuta city W picks it up and looks at it but it the n fades to white double wonders and looks at the sunlight with full determination.
    double -as Double went to his motorcycle he saw OOO coming by and turned his bike into a vendor which he then pats OOO before riding away in his motorcycle leaving OOO looking at him departing.
    OOO-as a bookend to the previous handoff OOO is about to go to the vendor to turn into a motorcycle then Fourze appears out of nowhere gives him the cell medal and then fourze appreciated and puts the cell medal on the vendor changes it into a cycle and went off wit hfourze waving to goodbye.
    Fourze-In a black background before fourze leaves Wizard appears out of nowhere and then fourze gives him the kamen rider club handshake which he is slightly confused but accepts it and then fourze lifts off using his rocket switch and waves goodbye to wizard which wizard (as we viewers foucs on him) waves back at him.

    The sentai hand offs each year are always amazing and cool. If they did start from the very beginning with Akaranger and Spade Ace it would be freaking awesome. But this years hand off should not be made, Red Buster shouldn't pass the torch to Kyoryu red and his pathetic sentai team, he should hand it off to the real successor of the 37th sentai series: AKIBARANGER!!

    @magicplease fuck you too dumbass. Gokaiger, Go-Busters and Akibaranger is better than kyoryuger and you know it.

    You left out:
    Kuuga riding the BeatChaser down a long racetrack, when Agito on Machine Tornader joins in from offscreen. Kuuga and Agito nod to each other, and Kuuga drives off to the side leaving Agito alone on the track
    Agito walks through a hall of mirrors, with nothing else but hundreds of his own reflection, until suddenly some of them are replaced by Ryuki reflections. Agito looks around in confusion for a bit, then stops as he reaches out his hand, to shake hands with the real Ryuki.
    Ryuki with Dragreder circling around him, until Dragreder notices something and roars. Ryuki looks over as well, and sees Faiz with Autovajin walking over. Ryuki nods to him as Dragreder disappears into a mirror, with Ryuki following him. Faiz nods back, and Autovajin has turned back to bike mode offscreen as Faiz climbs on and rides off.

  17. I love Marty's Kamen Rider handoffs! They are awesome indeed! Favorite Sentai handoff is between Red Buster and Gokai Red.

    Don't care what anyone says. I like all the hand offs including the ones involving Kyoryu Red/Kyoryuger. Akibaranger will never be part of the hand offs as long as it is 'Hikonin'. - Buy Video Games for Consoles and PC - From Japan, Korea and other Regions
