Aura Power!
9 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maskman is about a group of five young people who have martial arts skills were chosen by a scientist/sage who teaches them how to use their aura power which can only be accomplish by certain people. The five young people master their aura power and became the Maskman team. Their objective is to defeat the Tube Empire, an underground kingdom that plans to block the sun and turn Earth into a cold dark place for their desire to live above ground.

This Super Sentai was the first series for each ranger to have a vehicle of their own to use to combine into a big robot. The story is fun to watch with some great characters to know. I also adore the Yellow Ranger more than the Pink Ranger. But that's just my opinion. Almost an average Super Sentai, but still worth watching.
