“Cyber Sentai Last Angels” is a large-scale mixed media project filled with brilliant voice talent. Following the 25th anniversary of the original Cyber Sentai Voogie’s Angel by Aoi Takeuchi, this is a reboot project with a completely new story and new characters set in the same world.
Coming after the release of “Cyber Sentai Last Angels SP STAGE 1 Angels of the Light” in March 2021 and “SP STAGE 2 Character Song Collection” released in April of the same year, the third CD was finally released on March 2nd (Wed), 2022! Fighters known as the “Last Angels” (hereafter referred to as “Angels”) fight in a desperate battle that will determine the survival of mankind.
Additionally, Lav (voiced by Ayana Taketatsu) & Midi (voiced by Sakura Tange) perform a duet in the new ED theme “Invisible Link”, available via digital distribution starting February 16 (Wed). The two singing voices beautifully express the nature of their world in this story.
An event commemorating the release of this work was held at the Sofmap Akihabara Amusement Building in Tokyo on March 13 (Sun). With Nippon Broadcasting’s Hisanori Yoshida as the announcer and Hotaru’s voice actress Mizuki Hasegawa officiating the event, Lav’s voice actress Ayana Taketasu and Midi’s voice actress Sakura Tange took the stage.
The event began with them talking about this work. The three voice actresses talked about stories from dubbing, and then Taketasu-san and Tange-san dove deep into a story from when they were doing the recording. Additionally, Taketasu-san and Tange-san’s selected “memorable lines” were read live, the music video for “Invisible Link” was shown for the first time, and various other fun activities were carried out. The event was loaded, including a “synchro-quiz” testing the feelings of the 3 actresses, and an “Outer Space Quiz” in which Taketatsu-san and Tange-san took on challenging questions related to space.

【Story and Highlights】
The year is 455 under the Neo-Gregorian calendar, and only two humans remain in the world.
The humans once held the reins as Earth’s master, before the Arishia aliens began to move into human society and eventually take it over.
Following a brutal 100-year battle, the two species decided to coexist and signed a nonaggression treaty. It was intended to prevent any foolish behavior that could destroy their own shared star…
However, another 150 years have now passed. Following the resurrection of the strategic system “Teddy the Boy”, known for its history in the previous war, mankind is once again on the brink of survival.
Teddy the Boy’s cyberattack on the Earth United Military’s military supercomputer “Byron” caused it to go on a rampage and deal incalculable damage to humanity, but the Cybernoid Project LA1 Team (Lav, Jiggy, Grace, Nikki, Hotaru, Midi) were successful in overcoming the threat through an intense battle. Once again, fleeting peace returned.
This sequel, with “Family” as its main theme, depicts the bonds between the Angels.
Lav approaches Midi to find out where her parents have gone. Nikki thinks about her younger brother in Aria, and Hotaru thinks of her father, the king of Aria. The complex feelings of Grace and Jiggy are also displayed, two members who don’t know their parents…
However, Teddy makes another appearance before humanity, and the countdown to the ultimate destruction of mankind by a supermassive black hole bomb begins. Lav and the others are forced to face off against a new enemy in the form of a humanoid and extremely powerful brother and sister, but there’s a secret to their past as well…
In an emotional and climactic battle, the story touches the hearts of listeners with the Angels’ teamwork and their unbreakable love for one another.
