Definitely the BEST Super Sentai of all time!
31 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved Chôjû sentai Raibuman as a kid, since I spent a lot of years in Japan, since my father was in the military, I am very familiar with Super Sentai, also known as Power Rangers in western countries.

Chôjû sentai Raibuman also known as Liveman was a unique, one of a kind Super Sentai that combined great characters, special effects, and storytelling to create one of the best kid's shows of the 1980s! I had all of the toys of this great show when I was a teenager! I absolutely loved this show as a kid, but, it's now nearly impossible to find any episodes of this great show. Hopefully Bandai Japan will put out some DVDs of this and other great Super Sentais from the past 30 years! I now live in the United States, but I won't ever forget this great show! Go Liveman!
