  • Kirika was played by actor and model Masako Morishita. She stands at 177cm (or 5’8”). Masako later played Kujaku in Gosei Sentai Dairanger.
  • Juuken Sentai Gekiranger villains Rio and Mele may have been inspired by Kirika and Yamimaru.
  • She temporarily became Armored Kirika (ヨロイキリカ; Yoroi Kirika) in episode 44.
  • Kirika’s main weapon was the Moonlight Sword (月光劍; Gekkouken). She also had an unnamed ring-shaped shuriken that she used to revive and enlarge Boma Beasts.
  • The red string of fate that connected Kirika and Yamimaru is a common device used in many Asian stories.

The world would be cooler, if not better, place with large animal-like mechas in it. Robert put some insanely meticulous detail into these mobile combat companions, from Barn Owl Recon Units to Kingfisher Snipers, even explaining the mechanical nuances that allow them to move like their counterparts in the nature. You may not be able to “get in the fucking robot”, but when you’ve got a bigass canon, who’s gonna say you can’t ride your combat-ready Grizzly-Mech into battle with the rest of the Robot Bear Cavalry.
