As the battle with Talpa continues, the evil Lord reabsorbs the armor of his three Warlords. Anubis escapes and joins the Warriors, but Talpa absorbs him and the armor of Cy, Halo, Rowen, and Kento. Facing Talpa alone, Ryo has a vision of the warrior-monk Ancient defeating Talpa 1,000 years earlier and dividing his armor into the nine suits. The spirits of his four friends join Ryo to form a white armor suit that defeats Talpa at end of episode 19. Although the fate of Anubis is left unresolved, the Ronin's victory essentially ends the story. Then Sarenbou, an even nastier demon, appears and everything starts all over again. Legendary Armour Samurai Troopers (1989) became Ronin Warriors when it aired in syndication in the U.S. (1995); this program includes each episode as Ronin Warriors in English and as Legendary Armour in Japanese. Rated 13 Up: Violence, grotesque imagery. --Charles Solomon
