TokuNation returns to the team of ninjas that refuses to hide with Shuriken Sentai Ninninger! And today we’re taking a look at the second release in the Otomonin series of additional mecha, DX UFOmaru!
Apparently the original Otomonin, UFOmaru is the being which all of the Ninninger’s mecha technology is based on. Rather interestingly UFOmaru is also the first and so far only literal UFO based mecha in Super Sentai. We’ve had spaceships in the past but this one takes the cake. An interesting design, UFOmaru can alternate between the traditional “saucer” mode and his own unique robot form that stands tall with Paonmaru & Shinobimaru. When used in place of Shinobimaru, Shurikenjin UFO is formed! Armed with the 3-barrelled UFOmaru Launcher, Shurikenjin UFO succeeds in being another new and unique combination that’s a welcome breath of fresh air.
