The first Super Sentai series to have women as members of the assistant "good forces" who help the heroes. It was also the first Sentai to present a creature who enlarges monsters after they are defeated (before that, the monsters could increase their size by themselves, or could call a giant robot to fight a second time).

One of the most charismatic Japanese series of 80's
"Dengeki Sentai Changeman": Live-action series shown in Japan between 1985 and 1986 (55 episodes), tells the story of five warriors selected by the "Earth force" to protect the planet from attacks of "Gozma", led by frightful Mr. Bazoo. These warriors are represented by five mythological animals: Dragon, Gryphon, Pegasus, Mermaid and Phoenix. Guided by Sargeant Ibuki, the Changeman will become involved themselves in many adventures against the Gozma empire.
First of the "Super Sentai" (Super Task Force) series to be shown in Brazil in 1988, Changeman was absolute success, catching the audience by surprise with dynamic plots and heroic characters who needed use the team's work to be successful.
Changeman comes from the productive "80's" harvest of these series, and although not to be the best, is one of most nostalgic and charismatic from his time.
My personal rating: 4 stars of 5.
