Top 10 Best Super Sentai Series
The only weakness on Jetman was over-act by the actors (on some scenes)
The rest is just masterpiece among sentai series.
Story, character, models, villain, songs and of course... Black condor
While most of sentai focusing on heroes greatness journey, this gold, takes time to build villain character too. The way I see it, no other sentai does that. Along the series, you may sympathize both heroes and villain.
Well, this sentai maybe little bit for adults (based on theme-setting-story).
To make it short, this Sentai not only lovely just because they are Sentai series, but they can live it with the stories itself. Simply best.
Simply the best sentai series! An homage to the template of sentai, Gathcaman and a collection of gems in every part of the show: costumes, mecha, plot, action... Even villain are characterized then the usual sentai standard, raising the bar for the future production. You really can't go wrong with Jetman!
Hands down the best! Everything good and fun about Super Sentai is represented here. The main characters are all really likeable... And how can you go wrong with the pirate theme as these anti-heroes (initially) become true heroes! A fun ride in every way. I will definitely revisit this season again after I'm through watching. I you only own one season of Super Sentai, this should be the one!
Beyond simply a tribute series, Gokaiger utilized and perfected just about every nessisary element of a good (or rather, great) Sentai series. Between the costumes, the previous sentai references, the characters (including character growth and interaction) and the sheer scope of the season, Gokaiger was brilliant. The only crucial flaw would be the Zankyak not entirley living up to their hype as powerful villains, although the inclusion of Basco as a secondary villain more than made up for this.
The BEST Super Sentai series I have watched throughout my life. It's been about 7 years and it's still my favorite! I like how they used Japanese culture which was the samurai part and the origami which was really unique. Being the first Sentai series to first ever cross over with Kamen Rider(Decade) was really awesome! All of the characters grew together as a team and really showed a family bond or a very friendly bond towards eachother. The characters really keep you wanting to watch it and they are really funny without being really cheesy. This also can be considered a drama which I also find really awesome and unique because, other sentai did not feel like a sort of drama and, I enjoyed the little parts of drama they put in here! Overall this series was a huge hit with the song and the cast! The cast was amazing and this series was just too good! I wish they can make another comeback!
Aired in 2004 and uses a crime fighting motif with its heroes fighting extraterrestrial criminals. Dekaranger features the first semi-regular seventh hero (DekaMaster) and three additional heroines who appear once each throughout the series: DekaSwan (episode 36), DekaBright (ep. 40), and DekaGold (Dekaranger The Movie: Full Blast Action). This series started the tradition of a "passing the torch" segment after the ending credits of the series finale: the red warrior of the series that has just ended interacts with the red warrior of the upcoming series.
Best sentai series ever! I love their uniform design, simple but so modern and also their unique characters and plots! So fun to watch no matter how many times you have done so.
I think the show is awesome the way it's more intense and violent. In some ways it's better then power rangers SPD. I find the whole esper thing with jasmine amazing and umeko hilarious.
It was the first Super Sentai I ever watched, as my favorite Power Ranger series was Timeforce. The series has an inspiring theme of defying your destiny. Because the four rangers come from a future where they all have a foretold destiny, they bring with them their baggage and cynicism. But due to the Red Ranger being from the present, he is a staunch idealist and eventual convinces the other four that they have power to alter their own future.
Most dark and heavy storyline among all super sentai series (even to date).
The casts were great and every character was developed very well.
You can watch it over and over again without having bored, because it's every episode has something good or clue to make it understand.
The characters in Timeranger are masterfully written and the story in very good. The mecha designs are also great and the soundtrack is perfection. The only downfall is the generic villains. 9/10 would recommend.
Dairanger was the second sentai I watched and one I my all time favorites. Great costumes great action great choreography, what more could you want? This show set the be high when it comes to out of suit fights. It has a Chinese martial arts theme and it's really fun. Only complaints from me are that I think Kiba ranger was not used that well and the ending is a little out there... But that just ads to the fun. Watch it, you won't be disappointed.
This show heavily affected the franchise with making suitless fights even better. Also this is probably some of the best mecha action one can find in a Sentai. There are great characters to follow with both heroes and villains and my goodness the fights are so great!
It's a great show that has a lot of well written characters, some tense drama, makes EVERY member of the team feel important, and Is just a blast to watch and enjoy. The costumes great, mecha great, the villians are creative and fun
Kakuranger has characters unlike any other Sentai season. It is comically underrated, and often is overlooked due to the US adaptation being the Alien Rangers, a terrible filler season before Power Rangers Zeo aired. The cinematography is amazing and at times creepy. The charm of it's age serves it well. Whilst there are goofy elements of Kakuranger, it is a solid season with a strong narrative.
Aired in 1994 and had a ninja motif, and a motif loosely based on the classic Journey to the West. As another anniversary series, the crossover Super Sentai World was produced featuring the characters of Fiveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Dairanger and Kakuranger. Kakuranger also featured the first five-piece secondary robot.
So underrated! This season was so funny, but had an episode or two that made me tear up. The 3rd greatest season of the 1990's (next to Jetman and Megaranger and Zyuranger and Dairanger).
I just started watching Japanese sentai this year but have watched Power Rangers since Mighty Morphin. I skipped seasons after in Space and have watched it sparingly over the years. I would have to say after watching MegaRanger and Starting TimeRanger they are my top two series. I loved Timeforce as well.
Aired in 1997 using electronics and space travel as a motif. Megaranger featured the first silver-colored hero and the evil Nejiranger team who serve as villains for an entire story arc.
Top 5 season right here! Teenagers with attitude and the Silver ranger, A.W.E.S.O.M.E. series!
A very dramatic, heavy super sentai, filled nicely with some humor here and there. To be honest I teared up at some touching moments. I rarely felt that in sentai series. Great background music also contributed a lot.
The action is great, mecha fight is good too.
Plus a very clever villain Enter.
Well-rounded series, one of the best!
Watched all the episodes in nearly 2 weeks. Engaging episodes that keep you captivated and wanting more. Based around cyberspace, villain Enter and the rest of the go busters have great character development. A must watch for all!
An excellent example of the very term Super Sentai. Meaning of course, Super Squadron or Taskforce. Very mature in depth of character development. A must watch.
This is one of the most underrated sentai series. But if you followed the story I bet you'll like it.
All characters have strong personalities and this is the best family team in super sentai (from formation, personalities, relation to the greatest tag team ever).
While the story itself is very epic and worth to wait for every episodes.
And personally I think this is the most realistic sentai. It has no mystic power nor too futuristic gadget and mecha.
Aired in 1999 using an emergency service motif. GoGoFive is the first series since Jetman to only feature five heroes. Additional heroes appear in one of its V-Cinema productions.
An awesome siblings team ever. The Mecha looks so great and so real. And don't forget they have a bad-ass siblings enemy too.
Mele is one hot villainess chick because of her hair! Plus, the story of GekiRed as a wild boy raised by animals, GekiChopper (white ranger) is cool, better than that Power Rangers Jungle Fury garbage and the opening theme makes you catch on FIRE! I always listen to it and great one for sleepovers! Again, the song is so phenomenal because it makes you feel like you can catch on fire! What a spicy theme song! Take that Jungle Fury! :P Gekiranger rocks! :D
Kung Fu themed sentai with awesome music that is inspired by East Asian cultures. The majority of the cast is likable. The main villain himself is a ranger which is always awesome.
Fantastic overall story. Liked the theme and characters. The mail plot of the show was revealed in last 10 episodes. Just enjoyed watching it.
Tensou Sentai Goseiger was the first Super Sentai series that I ever watched from beginning to end, and it has remained one of my favorites. The series may not be perfect, but it has a TON of heart. The Goseigers themselves are quite likable (and become more so over time), the villain does his job extremely well, the action is great, and it all leads to a very satisfying conclusion. I'd actually recommend this series to anyone looking for a basic introduction to Super Sentai.
Oh, and Gosei Knight is a supreme badass.
The show was great! I like the angel theme, and the most exciting part in here is the final villain who I really didn't expect to be the final one, I like all of the episode of this Super Sentai Series!
Underrated season. Unique setting and theme with cool monster designs.
Aired in 2002 and used a ninjutsu motif, taking elements from Kakuranger as well as Liveman. Hurricaneger features the rival Gouraiger team with insect-themed powers, the free agent Shurikenger, and a series of smaller mecha that serve as weapons for the teams' robots.
Very fun show. Has a unique team lineup and memorable villains.
Plot is darker than usual Sentai Series, started with revenge, but I like it as it gives a more mature role for heroes and villains alike. Former classmates turning against them, real deaths, showing that not everything in Sentai Series are unicorns and fairy tales. They have to work themselves to get there and not because they are "special". First blue female. Plot is not red-centered. All first 3 members are given a spotlight to shine.
This show had a great theme (which is Life) the relationship between the heroes and villains were gut wrenching, plus there were so many first like female blue ranger, more rangers added later in the show, animal mech, two robots combine into one. The show was simply groundbreaking
Good effects and is the first sentai that using three machines form a single robot (live robot) also bind the two members and whose midseason form another robot machines, which binds to the "live robot" to form the "super robot live".
The themes of courage and family overcoming everything are really positive and uplifting. The character development is the best ever, as each episode focuses on the relationship between two characters rather than just one character by themselves. MagiKing is the best main mech, and the story structure is exquisite. There are three main arcs, each with several mini-arcs, resulting in a constantly building storyline that makes each episode feel important, and they truly are. The magic system is innovative and creative, leading to unique fight scenes and finishers that set it apart from other sentai shows. The villains undergo regular changes, keeping things fresh throughout the show's run, and the Infershia Pantheon is absolutely awe-inspiring, with each member well fleshed out despite only appearing in the last third of the show.
Aired in 2005 uses a magic motif with mecha that are the heroes transformed. Magiranger features an entire family of heroes: the core team are all brothers and sisters, the sixth hero marries one of the core team members, and rarely used seventh and eighth heroes are the parents to the core team.
The Japanese version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is severely underrated. I don't care if it's made for kids or if it's episodic because those traits are not inherently bad by any means. This show means well and it still has a lot of emotion, heart, and substance that make it far from juvenile and impossible to take seriously. The characters are not the most complex (excluding Burai's character arc in the story, which has the most development) but they're not one-dimensional or as boring as what some people say; they're very sweet and they have enough traits to make them sympathetic and relatable, especially when they try seeing their true purpose in life. Also, their chemistry with the children is wholesome and adorable to watch. Zyuranger is very balanced when it comes to having lighthearted and serious moments and nothing feels jarring. The show is also visually stunning and a lot of things are pretty fun to watch, just like other Super Sentai seasons.
Aired in 1986 and was the first series to add a second giant robot for the team to fight with. The team members' powers come from their upbringings on planets with different environmental conditions.
It was also the first sentai team where Red DIDN'T pilot a jet machine!
Very good series first one I ever watch. The music, fighting, costumes were all good
I'll be biased on this one: the Lupinrangers are the ones who carried the series, since they all have a goal of saving the people very important to them, and they took all the risks just to achieve that goal. Many may or might disagree with me here, but my stance will not change. :)
Very unique compared to the other series on this list. The monsters are unique and this season is very well casted. Easily my favourite season. Should be higher on the list!
Such a unique concept having police vs thief! top tier storyline in sentai series in my opinion.
Aired in 1985 and featured a motif based on legendary creatures in European traditions. Changeman was the first series to feature a team cannon formed from the five team members' individual weapons.
In my opinion the best Super Sentai show of the 80s, even though it didn't advertise much with the toys but it does heavy on story.
The king of Super Sentai in Brazil.
This is my only one favourite Super Sentai series. It's wonderful and fantastic! Engine Sentai Go-Onger featured the amazing friendship through challenging and miserable adventures between seven members. Especially, the family love of brother and younger sister, it contributed to inspire other members and also the audience. This series transmitted feelings and mood to the audience successfully, so you can feel the warm and comfortable family love, trust power of partners, the reckless for justice, the pure and innocent one-side love. I really recommend you to watch it. Thank you!
You are introduced to three of the Go-ongers at start, but not learning their back stories nor how they became Rangers until later. Sosuke is very likable, having the personality of a hero and naturally talented whilst lacking skill. Gunpei (Who after introduced soon becomes Go-Onger Black) is a great parallel to him, as he is an ex-Detective with much more skill in combat but lacking Leadership skills. Hant, the teams runt, so to speak, Is likable and has a 'fiery heart'.
The other two characters are great support for Sosuke, and likable, although not as dynamic as the other three mentioned. Eventually two more are added to the team, beings titled as Silver and Gold.
Although Talking Cars are corny, this series is awesome and keeps its 'drive'. Not to mention its crossover with Samurai Sentai Shinkenger is great!
Very good sibling Sentai series for me. Opening and Ending songs are both very good. Sibling dynamics is great. There is uniqueness in each one, teaching a forte subject of their own eldest red, second blue, mother figure pink, and complementary twins black and yellow. Good character development with each having a spotlight and not red-centered. Yellow is my favorite one here, knows her kung fu, everyone really knows how to fight and not just in suits.
Aired in 1990 and featured both an antagonistic team of villainous counterparts and a team power upgrade armor.
Story line is very unique. Also showed weaknesses in their characters making the series very realistic. Great storyline
Aired in 2006 using adventure and treasure hunting as themes and automobiles as a motif. It is the first series to be filmed in high-definition. As the 30th Anniversary series, it included the 30 Sentai Encyclopedia featurettes at the end of each episode and the GoGo Sentai Boukenger vs. Super Sentai V-Cinema release. Unlike previous series, Boukenger featured multiple groups of loosely allied antagonists instead of one overarching antagonist group.
Many things I like from this series, like the soundtrack, the cast of the characters, the plot of the stories, the solidarity of the team though sometimes they quarelled but they can make the story more interesting with their conflict...
Boukenger managed to do what a good Sentai series should do- create a plot and characters which are interesting and make you invested in them. Between a BoukenBlue who is a reformed Spy, a Bouken Black who is a vessel for dark energy, a Bouken Silver who was the lovechild of a forbidden romance and is both monster hunter and part vampire and a Bouken Yellow who is the hibernating descendant of an ancient and all powerful race on top of the other Sentais; the cast of heroes have some fantastic stories.
The villains are equally interesting, all 4 camps of them, and all with different goals, despite sometimes co-operating.
These are matched by a plot which both intelligently progresses and keeps you guessing while constantly dangling vague clues in front of you about one mystery or another that is unraveling during the series.
While a slow starter; Boukenger is a series that within a few episodes, has you completely hooked and waiting for the next one.
Battle Fever J is the best show you never watched. Every season has it's own shtick; Zyuranger was dinosaurs, Gokaiger was pirates, and so on and so forth. Being the child of 1978, Battle Fever J was about ethnic stereotypes and disco.
Five super-agents are recruited, and I am quoting this show directly, "for their mastery of different types of dancing", to fight against a terrorist organization. Though all of the characters have Japanese names and are played by Japanese actors, they represent different countries; Japan, America, etc.
The real treat of this show are the fight scenes, wherein the heroes will dance-battle their way through waves of masked henchman with their nationally assigned kung fu breakdancing skills. Battle France, who fights with Flamenco Dancing! Battle Kenya, who fights with Racially Insensitive Dancing! Battle United Soviet Socialist Republics, who fights with the power of Cossack Dancing!
On top of having the single goofiest possible premise, the show is -insanely- dark at times. In the second episode, the villains trick a twelve year old girl to commit suicide. In the sixth episode, a side character blows himself up with a dynamite vest while his children are watching. This show oscillates from a spandex superspy cossack dance-fighting evil siblings Buffalo Monster and Buffalo Robot to a suicide bombing in the same episode.
Oh. And to further add to the weirdness, this show was co-produced by Marvel. Originally, it was going to be a live-action Captain America show, and then the concept mutated into the beautiful disaster that is Battle Fever J.
Do yourself a favor, and watch at least a few episodes.
Aired in 1980 and was the first series completely produced by Toei. It is the first series to have a transforming giant robot and utilize an actual lens visor in the suits' helmet (unlike previous series where the visor was made of the same fiber of the helmet)
Green lantern power
The personalities of the characters is what made Kiramager a beloved series in Super Sentai. To be honest, I really cracked up with Shiguru since he tries to be cool, only to reveal his true and funny personality.
