Best Super Sentai Series


The Contenders: Page 2

21 GoGo Sentai Boukenger

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 that make this series not bored to watch, like villain in this series are many, and the story is complex

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.

Bouken Yellow is a skank!

22 Shuriken Sentai Ninninger

It's so goos I don't even know why it's on place 39 :o (shinkenger and kyoryuger is also good)

It's unfortunate that Ninninger is second-last, when in my opinion it's awesome. Boukenger, Go-Onger, Goseiger, Gokaiger, Kyoryuger and ToQger are the seasons I've seen besides it, and Ninninger is just so wacky and ridiculous that it just works for me. Plus, the mecha are the best I've seen so far.

23 Battle Fever J

Battle Fever as shown in it's entirety, fully subtitled in Hawaii, and as such has a special place in the hearts of Hawaii kids of that generation. Before Toei counted GoRanger and JAKQ, BFJ was regarded as the first Super Sentai, and it still has that classic aire about it. The theme was of foreign exchange/cooperation (with each member having spent time training in a foreign country).

It had it's silly side, but it also had many serious episodes. Particularly the death of Battle Cossack was tragic, poignant and well played. Other episodes had friends that were corrupted and could not be redeemed and had to be killed. Many episodes involved the corruption of moral character, and the degredation of society.

Many people don't care for the costume designs, like France having a chomage or a sphnix head on cossack. Miss America was particularly disliked, but really she was based on the Marvel's Miss America character of the same name and actually really resembles her. ...more

Aired in 1979 and featured an international group of characters. This series was the first to be produced by Marvel Comics after Toei and Marvel worked together on Spider-Man and featured characters resembling Captain America and Miss America. Battle Fever J also featured the first giant robot, an idea carried over from the Spider-Man production. From then on, the series' official name came to be Super Sentai. -

It has a weird name if you ask me

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 ...more

24 Denshi Sentai Denziman

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) -

25 Taiyou Sentai Sun Vulcan

Aired in 1981 and served as an indirect sequel to Denziman, with Machiko Soga's Queen Hedrian character returning. It featured the first combining robot to be used, a trend that continues throughout the Super Sentai Series. -

It was also the first team to have ONLY 3 core members, the others are Hurricanger, Abaranger, Gekiranger, and Go-Onger! Liveman only had three core members for 29 episodes.

26 Himitsu Sentai Goranger

Aired from 1975-1977, was the first Sentai Series. Developed by Shotaro Ishinomori, the Gorangers are a super-technology spy team that fight against a secret terrorist monster force: the Black Cross Army. -

I have only seen the first six episodes, but I undoubtedly consider this series to be of pretty good quality. The characters, although there are some gender and age stereotypes (most of those in danger are women and children), are well thought-out and given a strong back story - the villains destroying their lives is a pretty good way of making the characters figures of sympathy. The plots, although they follow the same basic formula, are fun and lively to watch. You can't help but smile at the lovably comedic buffoon, Daita Oiwa. The opening theme, Susume! Goranger! is remarkably catchy and suggestive of 'a power and a force that you've never seen before' to put it one way! Finally, their aircraft, Variblune, is not only inspiring but also has a launch sequence topped only by Thunderbirds! On that note, I can safely say that Himitsu Sentai Goranger is a series worth watching! Heck, I'm even writing a series of short stories which, although inspired by Thunderbirds, has an aircraft ...more

I was expecting this be closer in this list. Anyways, Gorangers, despite having some stunt problems for being the first, is a really good series. The show is bright and each character is unique. It's not as serious as later series, but it's one of the most fun to watch.

It was a good season I seen so far of the episodes, the fight scenes were pretty good, the charecters are good I like akaranger and yellow the best, the villain black cross fuhrer is mysterious under the robe, I like his return in gokaiger were he proved to be a threat to the 35 teams.

27 Seijuu Sentai Gingaman

Aired in 1998 featured a classical elements motif as well as two additional combining robots in addition to the primary robot used by the Gingamen. -

The five heroes' animal spirits are NOT earthly animals, but ALIENS!

28 Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger

Aired in 2001 and was the first series to utilize multiple possible mecha combinations from a planned total of one-hundred mecha (only 22 were utilized in the series run). It also began the tradition of a film adaptation as a double bill with that year's Kamen Rider Series film. Gaoranger also served as the 25th Anniversary series, featuring the Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai crossover V-Cinema release. -

can say. gaoranger is the best sentai ever. for me

All the Animal Mecha were CGI animated here!

Best in my heart! It bring my childhood back again :)))

29 Kousoku Sentai Turboranger

Aired in 1989 and featured an automobile motif. As the tenth anniversary of the Super Sentai Series (Goranger and J. A. K. Q. were not included at this time), Turboranger featured an anniversary crossover with the previous teams. It was themed around automobiles. This was the 10th anniversary series (by Toei's official count until Goranger & J. A. K. Q. were re-included) and the first to feature a reunion with previous Super Sentai teams. -

30 Dai Sentai Goggle-V

The first sentai I've ever watched. Very nostalgic back in the 80's. This series has a special place in the hearts of Indonesian kids that era. They are the first to introduce kids-assistant supporting the team from the base in which very similar with the work of kamen rider.

Aired in 1982 and featured motifs based on gemstones, ancient civilizations, and rhythmic gymnastics. -

31 Ressha Sentai ToQger

One of my all time favorite sentai it's the second time that there is a Orange the story is fantastic you end up love the big bad villains mainly zed even though it's flashy it's also really dark and it's full of IMAGINATION

WHY IS THIS SO LOW? ToQGer is a masterpiece. At the beginning, it may be childish, but it is part of the plot. The characters are awesome, the bad guys awesome, music awesome. This makes you laugh, cry and jump out of your chair. Please, watch ToQGer, because is beautiful.

The villains in this series are on of the best Super Sentai has to offer. Even if the heros themselves aren't your thing, give the villains a chance.

Very Recommended!

32 Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger

The currently airing Sentai that focuses on a battery and dinosaur theme. In contrast to Go-Busters, the show is aimed at a more family friendly audience.

I find this series funny, emotional, and the most rangers in a series I have ever seen.

An amazing story full if heart and you love all the heroes and some of the villains as well it's fun and amazing

Number 1 team of the 10 rangers

33 Chouriki Sentai Ohranger

Aired in 1995 using a geometric shape motif. Ohranger began the annual VS Series V-Cinema releases with Chouriki Sentai Ohranger vs. Kakuranger. -

One of my favourite show when I was a kid, because of the unique 5 shapes : Star, Square, Triangle, Equal and Circle

34 Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger

This is an amazing series so far it should be WAY higher especially episodes 28 & 29

This is one is the only super Sentai I actually really, really, really want to see with English subtitles, and I hope it becomes a power rangers show. Please saban?

Best Show and song

It is the best season because it has an evil ranger turn good ranger and we haven't seen that in the seasons since abaranger. The cube theme reminded me of minecraft.

35 Choudenshi Bioman

This show should be in the top 10, not at number 27. It featured some notable firsts that every team since followed. Like the first female Yellow Ranger for example.

Aired in 1984 and was the first series to feature two heroines on the team and the first to feature a helping robot to aid the heroes. -

It has Farrah cat in it, she is Full of win.

36 Hikari Sentai Maskman

First series that veered away from the traditional super hero type story telling of good versus evil. Here was the constant struggle of Red mask with his love for Mio, revealed as princess of the underground Tube empire. The series also had firsts for the super sentai franchise, first 5 part mecha, first sixth ranger etc.

Aired in 1987 and featured the first five-piece combining robot, with an individual mecha piloted by each member of the team. Maskman also featured the first sixth warrior, appearing for only one episode. -

Best story plot and characters

37 J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

Aired in 1977. It featured a team of cyborgs based on a playing card motif - Jack, Ace, King and Queen - later joined by another member who takes over the leadership roles. J. A. K. Q. also had a feature film that served as a crossover with Goranger. This use of a crossover would not happen again until 1995, when it began an annual tradition for a V-Cinema release. -

It's really looks good and the suits are cool wish there were subs

38 Kagaku Sentai Dynaman

Aired in 1983 and was the first series to use "spandex" costumes for the heroes and was the first series to remove the scarves from the costume (a tradition carried over from Ishinomori's Kamen Rider Series). Several episodes of Dynaman were comically dubbed into English and aired during the USA Network's 1987 Night Flight programming block. -

39 Gekisou Sentai Carranger

Aired in 1996 and featured an automobile motif and served as a parody to Turboranger and the Super Sentai Series as a whole. After the inclusion of Goranger and J. A. K. Q. as Super Sentai Series, Carranger became the twentieth anniversary series. -

That show was total garbage, it made me like it Power Rangers counterpart a lot more.

The most hilarious Sentai show I've ever seen because of parodies like the Gintama anime

40 Bakuryƫ Sentai Abaranger

Aired in 2003 and used a dinosaur motif. It is the first series to present an alternate transformation for one of its members (AbaRed into AbareMax), a sole evil warrior (AbareKiller), and sentient mecha that speak in the Japanese language (Zyuranger and Gaoranger also featured sentient mecha, but they could not speak Japanese). -

It has a slightly dark storyline, which I loved. Also, the life lessons that not many new kid shows can cover. Unlike many that mostly focuses on friendship, Abaranger placed its concentration on family love. And there are so many plot twists! Also, I love the idea of a useless but adorable monster living with the rangers. It's hilarious and cute.

AbareKiller. 'enough said.

One word! AbareKiller!
