Genseishin Justirisers (幻星神ジャスティライザー Genseishin Jasutiraizā?) is a tokusatsu superhero TV series produced by Toho company Ltd. This series is the second in Toho's Seishin (Star God) series.

Characters[edit]

The Justirisers[edit]

The Justirisers are three chosen humans who are granted the use of the mysterious Justipower, the "Earth's will" that was discovered by the Riserian Noulan who utilized it to seal away Kaiser Hades long ago. Each is based on a different Chinese legend. Each one is equipped with an In-Loader that allows them to summon a high-powered suit of armor that transforms them into a Justiriser. The transformation call is "Souchaku!" ("Equip!"). The In-Loader also acts as a communications device between the three Justirisers.

Riser Glen[edit]

Shouta Date is a stereotypical uninspired high-school student. He slacks off from both schoolwork and kendo practice. He does not take most things as seriously as he should, and it does not really change throughout the series. Shouta, as is the first Justiriser to awaken on-screen, and the first to summon Genseijuu Riseross. After becoming a Justiriser, he takes up the job of protecting humanity instantly, and begins to take his kendo practice more seriously… although not his schoolwork. Later in the series, Shouta also becomes the vessel for the power of Shirogane. As Riser Shirogane, Shouta seems to be in control but does not act up like he does, even as Riser Glen. He loves Yuka and worries a lot for her safety, sacrificing his Justi-power to save Yuka's life when Zora fatally wounded her. But it took Naoto's guidance and the Justi Crystal gathering energy to restore Shouta's Justiriser powers.

Riser Glen's weapon is the Glen Sword, which can be unsheathed for better offensive capability and the sheathed again to charge up his finishing move, Raging Flame, which releases a wave of fire from his sword. He later picks up another finishing move, Flash Burst, which acts similarly to Raging Flame, except it is executed from a different stance.

Riser Kageri[edit]

Yuka Sanada is a fairly popular girl in high school, and is an active member of the school’s team. Unlike Shouta, who is set in his path of protecting humanity, Yuka is much more conflicted. She would rather go back to being a regular schoolgirl, as her duties interfere more and more with her social life. But when confronted with danger, she does not hesitate to fight. Shouta was worried for her protection, which Yuka in the end shows that she can handle the dangers of being in harms way.

Riser Kageri's weapon is the Claw Attacker, which can be used in hand-to-hand combat or as a storage for her daggers, which can be used to attack at long range. Her finishing move is the Phantom Crush, which releases a highly concentrated shot.

Riser Gant[edit]

Shinya Hiraga is a college student, who seems to be majoring in pharmacy and loves robotics. Shinya is much more serious than either Shouta or Yuka, and although he uses his powers as to fight, the fighting troubles him. He does not believe in just fighting to protect humanity, and questions why they were given the power, and what for. It takes much for anyone to become friends with him, and earning his trust is hard. Sometimes his strong heroic sense of chivalry leads to protecting Mio since he has deep feelings for the guardian, lest he wants to protect her from any harm.

Riser Gant's weapon is the Gant Slugger, a double-barreled cannon that he uses in medium to long range combat. He can change the Gant Slugger into the Gant Rifle, which he uses for shooting at further ranges. His finishing move is Versus Cannon, which fires two extremely powerful beams of thunder from the Gant Slugger. He also can execute another finishing move called Thrust Shoot from his Gant Rifle, which acts similarly.

Riser Shirogane[edit]

The "Legendary Hero of the Azure Planet", Riser Shirogane is the physical manifestation of JustiPower sealed away within the Justi Crystal that Nolun gave to the Tendo Clan centuries ago. However, by combining the hearts of the three Justirisers, and the prayers of the Justi Crystal bearer, Glen becomes the vessel through which Shirogane comes into being. Becoming Shirogane grants Glen immense power that can easily defeat even the strongest enemy. It also changes Shouta's personality to a calmer and non-violent kind, contrasting the original to such an extent that he has on many occasions even spared an enemy or gave them a chance to retreat, only to be forced to kill them when they refuse. Becoming Shirogane caused shock to Shouta's body the first few times, but afterwards he was able to transform without difficulty. However becoming Shirogane takes an even larger toll on Mio, and she is usually unconscious for some time after a battle in which he is summoned.

Shirogane uses the Justi Arms in combat. Its default mode is a blade (Justi Blade), but can be switched to blaster (Justi Blaster) and lance (Justi Lancer) mode. He has two finishing moves. His first finishing move, Justi Crush, is used in the Justi Blade or Justi Lancer mode, and sends multiple, extremely powerful shockwaves. His other finishing move, Justi Burst, is used in Justi Blaster mode, and fires a powerful beam, similarly to Versus Cannon but much more powerful, and capable of even stunning the giant space beasts.

Genseishin[edit]

The Justirisers mecha are stored within the Storage Satellite Shadestar, a spaceship Noulan created to support Earth. Though normally in Earth's orbit, the Shadestar enters Earth when Ryuto is invoked, during Daruga's attack on Riceross and the Seishinjuu, and finally fighting Kurogane before it is destroyed.

Genseijuu Riseross[edit]

Built by Noulan, is a giant dragon dinosaur type robot that can be summoned by any of the three Justirisers, though all three piloting it able it to fight at full power. Despite the fact it has many powerful weapons of it own, it is the base to which each of the specific Genseijuu combine with, to form a more powerful robot called a Genseishin. During the final battle with the Daruga Army, Riseross Units 2 and 3 were revealed; enabling the Justi Risers to assumes their basic Genseishin modes.

Enoh[edit]

A giant red phoenix, Seishinjuu Enoh (星神獣エンオウ Seishinjū Enō?) can only be summoned by Justiriser Glen. It can combine with Riseross to form Genseishin Ken-Riser (幻星神ケンライザー Genseishin Kenraizā?), forming the forms a new upper torso and arms. KenRiser usually fights with 2 swords that are stored in its wings, but combines them for its finishing attack Riser Saber. Enoh's name means "Flame King" and is represented by Suzaku.

Kouki[edit]

A giant black turtle, Seishinjuu Kouki can only be summoned by Justiriser Gant. Kouki's shell serves as a form of protection, and has on multiple occasions protected the Justirisers and Genseishin. It can combine with Riseross to form the legs and back. The slowest of the Genseishin, JuuRiser uses long range attacks for its finishing move Riser Buster, but has been known to fight hand to hand with its powerful arms. Kouki is represented by Genbu.

Ranga[edit]

A giant blue tiger, Seishinjuu Ranga (星神獣ランガ Seishinjū Ranga?) can only be summoned by Justiriser Kageri and can combine with Riseross to form Genseishin Nin-Riser (幻星神ニンライザー Genseishin Ninraizā?), forming the upper torso and arms. This Genseishin is built for high-speed battle and can fight both long and short range, using the Howling Burst and Typhoon Slice attacks. Ranga is represented by Byakko.

Ryuto[edit]

A winged, two-headed dragon that can be summoned by either Justiriser Shirogane or Demon Knight, Genseijuu Ryuto (星神獣リュウト Seishinjū Ryūto?) is manifested from the Shadestar. It can combine with Riseross to form Genseishin JustiKaiser (幻星神ジャスティカイザー Genseishin Jasutikaizā?), the ultimate Genseishin that is primarily piloted by Justiriser Shirogane and able to fire the Justi Nova. Ryuto is represented by Seiryuu.

Justi Kaiser is the most powerful of the four Genseishin, and can fight very well in both short-range and long-range combat. It uses its chest for its finishing attack, Justi Nova, which releases a powerful burst of energy that is capable of destroying even the strongest giant space beast in one hit.

But once exposed, Jinno battles the Justirisers in both human form and as Demon Knight. As the Justirisers grow as warriors, Demon Knight starts to harbor a rivalry against Glen after being defeated by him when the Justiriser achieved his full potential and causing him to lose his ability to change. After being saved by Danhauser, he manages to regain his ability to become Demon Knight at the cost of Danhauser being fatally wounded when he took an attack meant for Demon Knight. But before he died, Danhauser managed to give Jinno the truth behind his full potential yet to be revealed but unable to tell him of his true nature. It was only after Shouta saved him from Hades and then the appearance of Mira that Demon Knight's true nature is revealed, eventually joining the Justirisers as an ally against the Daruga Army. He takes his mission very seriously, so much so that he neglects his own well-being for the sake of accomplishing it. Eventually, he develops feelings for Reika, who later becomes associated with Riser Power. Jinno later loses the full capability of Riser Power to Daruga. Afterwards, Jinno learns that Drak was the one who killed Riser Planet's princess, and kills him.

He bids farewell to Shouta, Yuka, Shinya, Mio and Reika as he pilots Ryuto to go back to his home world.

  • Defrog (デフロッグ Defurogu?, 1-2): The first of Dr. Zora's monsters, it was sent to attack the city around the time the Justirisers are born. Though it overpowers the special defense forces, Defrog is no match for Riseross as it arrives on Earth as it is forced to retreat. But Defrog later returns to finisher off Glen after he defeats Zaurus, being destroyed by Riseross with Glen piloting it.
  • Troidon (トロイドン Turoidon?, 10): Sent to attack along the coast to bring the Justirisers out into the open while fighting the JSDF until JuRiser is formed. But though it overpowered JuRiser, the monster is killed by KenRiser.
  • Buglian (バグリアン?, 11-12): A giant monster Zekard summons to aid him when he deals with the assembled Justiriser team. The Glen-piloted Riceross battles Buglian until the others enter and form JuRiser. Once finding the weak point to be in the shoulders, KenRiser is formed to finish it off. However, the monster is called back before the deathblow is executed. Buglian is later summoned to attack the Justirisers to get them to summon Riseross so it and Guadius. But Buglian is killed by KenRiser
  • Gillmone (ギルモネ Girumone?, 13, 28): A giant monster sent by Rajimeus as a distraction to keep the Justirisers at bay while they arrive to fight it with Riceross. Forming JuRiser, Gillmon overpowers the Genseishin until it separated to kill the monster with a pincer attack from both sides.
  • Deathborg Leogaias (デストボーグ・レオガイアス Desutobōgu Reogaiasu?, 19, 38): Sent by Destalan to attack a building Shinya and Mio were in, it battled NinRiser. Leogigas can use its "Gravilight Ray" to telekinetically torture his opponent. Before it could finish Ninriser off with its Megalinum Shot, Gant managed to stop the monster. Enoh and Kouki arrive to support NinRiser as it destroys Leogaias with its Typhoon Slicer attack. Leogaias is rebuilt by Adoroc as Leogaias II, given a Warp Cannon to teleport the Justirisers and Riseross off Earth so Gamleon can take the JustiCrystal without interference. The plan is foiled when the Shadestar retrieves Riseross as it returns to Earth with the three Gensei Beasts which disarm Legaias. Then JuuRiser is formed to finish LeoGaias off.
  • KingZero (キングゼロ Kingu Zero?, 22): A giant blue-bird monster, King Zero's trademark Death Storm attack produces strong winds can all it to counter the attacks of KenRiser and NinRiser, with the only Genseishin able to fight it being JuuRiser. Crashing near Tokyo Tower, King Zero begins its attack as Demon Knight holds Gant at bay so the monster can battle the other Justirisers in KenRiser. After managing to drive Demon Knight away, Gant joins the battle and JuuRiser manages to overcome King Zero's barrier and destroys it with Thunder Burst while it attempted to escape.
  • Deathborg Bulgaro (デストボーグ・ブルガリオ Desutobōgu Burugaro?, 24, 50, Seishin Crossover): A giant robotic ape built by Space Pirates, it was sent to Earth as part of Bachuss' plan to destroy Riseross by using its power to cause the Geishinjuu to malfunction and unable to summon the Seishinjuu. But once Glen destroys the source of the disruption, the Justirisers summon all three Seishinjuu to back up Riceross as it delivers the deathblow. During the final, an army of Bulgaros are sent to Earth before all being destroyed by the Genseishin
  • Devoras (デボラス Deborasu?, 28): Able to resurrect monsters and make them immune to any fatal attack, Devouras was sent to Earth to battle the Justirisers. While battling Riseross, Devoras revives Deadler and Gillmone as all three overpower Riseross and the Seishinjuu. But once Enoh blinds Devoras, KenRiser destroys it to sends the revived monsters back into death.
  • Scarabaeus (スカラベウス Sukarabeusu?, 29): A Beetle-like monster sent to take out Mio and Yuka by causing a collapse with its impact on Hoshikami Island, it later emerges from underground to kill the Justirisers and Demon Knight under Bachuss' order. Paralysing Glen with its powered scales, Scaraberus overpowers Ken Riser. With Yuka's help, Shouta manages pilot Ken Riser and finish the monster off.
  • Glaster (グラスター Gurasutā?, 31): A rock-skinned monster that arrives on Earth in the form of a meteor to protect the Magnesheldar before everything is ready for Earth's destruction, Glaser overpowers the Justirisers and sacrifices itself to petrify Riceross.
  • Darkness Beast Bahadorg (暗黒巨獣バハドーグ Ankokukyojū Bahadōgu?, 36): Gargoid's pet monster, summoned to finish the Justirisers. However, Bahadorg is destroyed by JustiKaizer.
  • Zarigan (ザリガン Zarigan?, 41): A giant monster created by Adorocs from fusing a multitude of crayfish into a single giant monster with an acid spray as its weapon. Zarigan overpowered the military before breaking down into its components due to a turtle caught in the mix. Once the fusion is perfected, Zarigan is deployed to attack Shirogane before JustiKaizer is formed to break back up into its components.
  • Egzerion (エグゼリオン Eguzerigon?, 44): A crystal-like monster, able to create clones of its mature form to fight for it, sent to Earth as part of Adorocs' final plan to destroy the Justirisers. Aided by the JSDF, Egerzion sneaks into the JSDF's Science and Technology center. Found out by Demon Knight, Egerzion emerges in its true form. With Enoh supporting it, Nin Riser manages to destroy Egerzion.
  • Mecha Giant Beast Megarion (メカ怪獣メガリオン Mekakaijū Megarion?, 47, 49): a mole-like monster with drill ams, it is deployed by Daruga to destroy the city in a plan to depose of Riceross and its support mecha. Later deployed as Kurogane summons the Diglos, Megarion proceeds to destroy the city as Gant and Kageri try to stop it on their own before it attempts to kill Mio. However, Ryuto intervenes as Demon Knight arrives in the rebuilt Riseross. Once formed, JustiKaizer destroys Megarion.
