Kanpai Senshi After V is a 2014 Super Sentai parody tokusatsu series, airing concurrently with Ressha Sentai ToQgerIcon-crosswiki. In a similar vein to Toei's own 'unofficial' Sentai parody Hikonin Sentai AkibarangerIcon-crosswiki, it light-heartedly pokes fun at the traditions and tropes seen in Sentai series.

A sequel, New Kanpai Senshi After V, was aired in 2015

PlotEdit

"The police and Self-Defense Force were powerless against evildoers hellbent on ruling the world. A new organization was created to defeat these villains... The Golden Warriors Treasure V: A team of five combat specialists. However, their drinking parties after battles became better known than the battles themselves, and they became known as the Cheers Soldiers, After V!"

References/Homages to Super Sentai and other TokusatsuEdit

  • Aesthetically, After V is especially reminiscent of Super Sentai series made in the early 1980s. The name 'After V' is a homage to the 1982 Sentai series Goggle VIcon-crosswiki. The teams' suits appear as a hybrid of the 1980 and 1981 Sentai DenzimanIcon-crosswiki and Sun VulcanIcon-crosswiki with gems on the helmet like Goggle V. Likewise, the Treasure Robo is reminiscent of DaiDenzinIcon-crosswiki and the Sun Vulcan RoboIcon-crosswiki.
  • Treasure V is a five-man team with the color scheme Red/Blue/Pink/Yellow/Green, the most commonly used quintet of colors since the original Himitsu Sentai GorengerIcon-crosswiki, also used in Denziman and various later Sentai including Ressha Sentai ToQgerIcon-crosswiki, the Sentai whose run After V aired within.
  • Yellow has been shown to love eating curry, as the original KirengerIcon-crosswiki in Himitsu Sentai GorengerIcon-crosswiki did.
  • As was the norm for early Sentai, the gender ratio is four men (Red/Blue/Yellow/Green) and one woman (Pink).
    • Yellow's replacement being female is a reference to the change started by Choudenshi BiomanIcon-crosswiki, the first Sentai with a female Yellow alongside the Pink, which gradually became the prefered option to this day.
      • The departure of the New Yellow (due to maternity leave) from the team and subsequent replacement by the original Yellow is another reference to Kirenger. In Gorenger, Daita Ooiwa left the team for a period of 13 episodes before rejoining following the death of his replacement Daigorou KumanoIcon-crosswiki.
  • Like the original MidorengerIcon-crosswiki and Green SaiIcon-crosswiki from Choujuu Sentai LivemanIcon-crosswiki, Green wields a boomerang weapon.
  • The Chief emerging as Lame Gold is an example of the 6th RangerIcon-crosswiki additions which was first experimented with in Bioman and MaskmanIcon-crosswiki before becoming tradition starting in ZyurangerIcon-crosswiki. The trope of the mentorIcon-crosswiki becoming a hero assisting the team has also appeared in many Sentai.
  • The combatant's battle uniform while fighting After V is reminiscent of the combatmenIcon-crosswiki of ShockerIcon-crosswiki seen in the originalIcon-crosswiki Kamen Rider Series, in particular the presence of a mask reminiscent of those worn by lucha libre wrestlers. While in the restaurant, the combatant addresses the commander with a salute and "Eeeee!" like servants of Shocker.

NotesEdit

  • The show's title is a pun based on the old adage that people should not drink until after 5:00pm because the alcohol will cause afternoon fatigue.
    • The title also contains the word Kampai and the characters are in a bar talking about their lives. The word Kampai translates to "Cheers"
