In Okinawa, the island of Japan filled with sacred power from its surrounding nature, a new hero is born – RYUJIN MABUYER, the warrior of the Okinawan souls summoned from Nirai Kanai, the mythical place from which all life originates.

Uruma is a young Okinawan stage actor who lacks self-confidence but still wants to be a hero on stage. One day, an evil organization, Majimun, rises from ancient time and attempts to build the Majimun Kingdom by taking over Okinawa. When Majimun attacks Uruma’s stage and knocks him down, the soul of RYUJIN MABUYER is summoned into Uruma’s body and Uruma becomes MABUYER! MABUYER fights to protect the 7 Mabui stones that are essential for Okinawan people’s life and to prevent Majimun’s attempt to rule Okinawa.

Unlike other “Sentai heroes”, RYUJIN MABUYER defeats the villains without killing them, as the villains are not depicted as totally evil. RYUJIN MABUYER, the Okinawan hero with respect and forgiveness, rises now!
