Kodomo Sentai Youthenger is the 40th installment of the Super Sentai television franchise, marking the 40th anniversary of Super Sentai. It has a child warfare motif.
A slightly professional organization K.I.D.S.(Kids Iscolated From Democracy Ever Since) has been a generation for children warriors. It was run by rebellious kids sick of the adult themed stuff, and can do anything to have their way. Before that, children met Gigimals, who are cute, anime-like animal aliens who never age and help the kids out with their plans on their missions. When a young boy was running from the law for murdering his abusive father and leaving his mother and oldest sister for dead, he runs into the five Gigimals and the four Youthengers. He learns, until the finale, that all grown-ups are cruel and hateful. So, he joins up as the new leader of the Youthengers, as they're going to stop the leader of the Qado Army who is manipulating mean adults into thinking that children don't deserve to exist and turning them into monsters with use of special drives.
