Yellow Shinken Sentai ranger Suzuka Morita transforms into swimsuit model

Many teenage boys and young men across Japan were probably sitting at the edge of their seats waiting for July 20. That day marked the release of a special DVD featuring photographs of the idol turned TV super-hero Suzuka Morita as she leaves behind her yellow ranger outfit for some skimpy bikinis.

The 22-year-old Morita, affectionately known as Su-chan, started making a name for herself around 2008 when she joined the pop group Idoling!!!, which also had its own TV program. While she was in the group from 2008-2012, her real break came when she joined the cast of "Samurai Sentai Shinkenger" as the yellow "sentai" ranger in 2009 (photo below).

Fighting her way into the hearts of boys and men until 2013, she’s now taken on a new role: bikini model. Morita’s DVD (and BluRay), titled "Yume Ko Tsutsu" and put out by Line Communications, is a compilation of pictures and video of Su-chan prancing around in a variety of bikinis and lingerie.

Morita spent the photo shoot on the beaches of Shizuoka Prefecture’s Izu Peninsula with a bunch of crabs, later saying, “There were so many crabs, we just lazed around with the crabs.”

For many, this is a welcome change; some men reminisce about their boyhood crushes on the yellow ranger, only to find her now all grown up and strutting her stuff. Others, however, are taking offense, hoping their childhood image of the spunky heroine is never tainted by the evils of eroticism.

This might be a good time to mention that bikini modeling is nothing new for our dear Su-chan. Before her Idoling!!! and Sentei Shinkenger careers took off, Morita was featured in some DVDs at the age of 15 that were pretty risqué for a teenager.

The release of Morita’s new 4,000-yen DVD on July 20 is being accompanied by an event at Akihabara’s Sofmap Amusment Center on August 9.

First an "idol", then a "ranger", then "bikini model"? Atare mae, there will be spunky images and videos available soon.

And her parents didn't mind at all, I'm sure. Money and fame uber alles.

I appreciate beauty as much as anyone, but the "market" here is over-saturated.

My bod, my friends bods are all the same. Instead of fantasy from images, men here need to get out on the town and actually talk the walk.

People will buy this DVD? Who wants to see her prancing? Is this why creeps steal and collect women's panties?

@Noble713. Right, her butt looks kind of flat-

Wc! Her butt is fine. No cellulite.

Huh? Who? Is there some fire and brimstone whack-a-loon Puritan group in Japan that I didn't know about?

Wc! Her butt is fine.

What butt? I don't see any butt!

Not big enough.

Her butt looks great to me.

Honestly I was never a fan of big butts... and I come from South America!!!

The hiney craze that praises the extremely distasteful big butts (Anaconda comes to mind) are something I can not understand.

Small butts but nicely formed, that is what I like... The butt of this girl...there is not enough information to compute.

Nice thin legs good too Daniel. I take care of my bod, and this girl does too.

Agree: I've had a lot of students in Japan who were far, far more beautiful than Miss Morita, here, (and they were considered "ordinary") but she is a beauty. I wish her well.

Nothing at all wrong with her figure... never understood the big arse fetish some guys have.

She is cute.

LoL.@Nobel713, wtf "spliting the cicada?" Didn't know that position had a name.

Honestly I was never a fan of big butts... and I come from South America!!! Lucky you. Women from Columbia and Venezuela are drop dead gorgeous. Shakira is a godess imo.

She is cute. & thats iT! Let's not give too much credit where it isn't due-

I can almost guarantee you you'll find the second experience more pleasurable. You can thank me later. Yeah, i second that notion.

Cute but not much of a body

Noble: Mods must be asleep at the helm. Not sure how you got that one past. I could challenge you on that though. You would pick choice one and beg for more.

Exactly. Once again, let's not give too much credit where it isn't due.

@Nobel. Glad the mods let it ride. You make an outstanding point.

JapanGalJ, why do you go off and presume I want a Kardashian style butt? You seriously cannot see anything between the two? You should get out more.

I quite simply don't see any curve from the legs to the butt from the side. That means no padding. No padding equals no butt. No butt equals "ouch" if you know what I mean, and if you are a woman, you probably don't.

You just had to mention the Censors? Now the readers are losing out on the knowledge I dropped. As for your challenge....well, if there's ever a JT Commenters Meet-n-Greet....you'd best prepare yourself. ;)

I didn't know if I should continue laughing or continue reading.

Obviously I continued reading, until this bit

Then I really did burst out laughing.

Nobody could have ever planned a text like this.

Btw, her bum is fine.
