Storyline

The scientists discover an energy in the environment called Birdnc. They find a way to bio-engineer it and bond it to humans. The Commander of the Sky Forth Ayachokan Odagiri searches for five people to be part of this J-project. She finds Ryu Tendo and his fiancée Rie Aoi and asks them to volunteers. Ryu is half-conscious after receiving the Birdnic when the Vyram (the villain) starts attacking the Earth Ship. However, a force from a torn surface of the Earth Ship catches Rie. Ryu tries to rescue her but she is sucked. Aya knocks down the semi-hysterical Ryu then escape before the Earth ship totally explodes. The Earth Ship throws out the other four Birdnic Waves to the earth, hitting four civilians. Kaori Rokumeikan (a rich young lady), Raita Oishi (a young farmer), Ako Hayasaka (a highschool student) and Gai Yuuki (a lone wolf motor biker). Aya and Ryu try to gather the four to complete the team. They find a tough time in convincing the three (Gai most especially). But there is ... Written by Anonymous

Gatchaman + Super Sentai = Jetman
18 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of Sentai fans would regard this to be a remake of Gatchaman. Which I do acknowledge the fact they acquire some of the ideas from that anime to create this series. While at the same time it also has the elements you would see in the earlier Super Sentai shows. Including fully masked heroes with unique powers. Costume monsters to fight and giant Mechas to take on giant monsters.

The story takes place in an untold time period in the 90s. Where an air force group is developing a bird energy device that would make any normal human gain powers and be able to transform into a bird man. However a trans-dimensional group called the Vyram has made themselves known to the human race. Threaten them they will destroy all of man kind.

To stop them, five selected young people with bird energy powers form the Jetman team. Together they must learn to set their differences aside and fight the Vyram before they could succeed in world domination.

This is a good series while at time it could get weird like some Sentai shows like the designs of the dimensional beasts. And it also has some morbid and mature moments that would never be released as a Power Rangers series in America despite it being a kids show in Japan.

It's worth watching if you like Super Sentai, but I don't have the heart to say it's the best one.
