A Sentai that makes you feel young.
8 February 2011 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

A group of young people are students of an advance science academy located on an island off coast of Japan that is made up of Japanese and other ethnic groups who all want to major in science and get to be on board a space station that's being plan to be launched from the academy. Three students however have betray the academy and went to work for Professor Bias a super genius who believes in no one but himself and looks upon Earth in his own space station. He orders the three renegade students to attack the Academy island. During the aftermath three students survived and use their new ranger suits to fight off their former friends. Along with the other threats that Bias has thrown upon them including an army of android soldiers called Jimmers and Brain Beasts. With the help of an android name Colon and a legion of Mechas to guide our young heroes, they will have what it takes to take down Bias and prevent him from taking over the world.

This is a really fun Sentai series in which I enjoyed a lot. Like most of the previous ones this one had a cast of memorable characters including Colon possibly my first favorite robot from a Sentai series Alpha of Power Rangers has nothing on her that's for sure.

If you like the previous ones then this one is a must cause it was known for being the 10th Anniversary Sentai Series.
