It is important to take any bit of Akibaranger news with a grain of salt, but the latest issue of Figure Oh displays the main cast sporting slightly different looks:
It’s not clear what to make of this: a parody of hastily-constructed power-ups? Commentary on post-time-skip design changes? Excuse to sell more toys? Whether these new costume changes will be a major facet of the show or a simple one-off gag, there’s no telling until it actually airs in April. Isn’t it nice having a hero program with a grain of unpredictability in it?
