Toei Hero Next: We're the Bounty Hunter Troupe (2014)

Spoofs with genuine stories hidden beneath the laughs are magical things. Just look at Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. On the surface, this is a gigantic bag of Super Sentai cameos and fanservice. When the references aren’t call-backs, they’re knowing switcheroos. The core six Kyoryugers are a group of actors, who are also bounty hunters, that entangle themselves in a case involving Go-On Silver. Trading one female Sixth for another. I like that~ The conclusion is Ace Attorney-worthy and they even work in a nod to the value of toku as a whole. Still, I unfortunately can’t really recommend it to anyone who isn’t at least familiar with Kyoryuger.

All of the cameos are listed below the cut.
