Well hello there! This may seem very out of the blue and very unorthodox to put here, but I thought I would do it anyway. Let me explain what this is first. This will be me watching the TV series, Super Sentai, and reviewing it episode by episode hence the title (yes, the title does serve a purpose). I'm not very sure if this goes in Entertainment, since I think I'm the first one to do this on this forum, but we can roll with it. By the way, if anyone else wants to join me in watching this, then please pm me and I'll gladly share the experience with you through Discord. Also, if anyone else wants to do something like this, then go right ahead, it'll be fun! Onto the important stuff, "what is Super Sentai?". Well, have you heard of Power Rangers? If yes, then you have a step ahead of everyone else, hooray! But for those who don't, it's about a group of 5 or more characters who have the ability to transform into powerful forms using some form of device or power and they fight against an organization of evil. The series known as Super Sentai started in 1979 with the series known as Battle Fever J. For those hard core Otakus that I probably just confused please wait for me to explain. Technically, the series started in 1975 with the release of Himitsu Sentai Goranger, but wasn't technically "Super Sentai". The releases of the first two season, Goranger and JAQK, were made without giant robots, giant robots are what added the "Super" part onto Super Sentai. These two series were technically not canon until much later into the series. "What does this mean?" you might ask, this means that I'll be starting my episode by episode review with Battle Fever J instead of Goranger (although it's really awesome and everyone should go watch it). Talking about Power Rangers, the Super Sentai season Zyuranger was adapted for American audiences into Mighty Morphin which is what is known more prominently today (thanks mostly to the movie). Also, the reason I'm not doing Power Rangers is because I've regrettably seen every episode of it (and grew up with it), so my review standpoint wouldn't be very unbiased or uninformed. Let's talk format. The format for this topic will be very erratic. Honestly, I'll watch the episodes when I want to and immediately do the review after. There won't be a "schedule" for this, mainly because I'm lazy, but also because I've got school. I'll post my thoughts and opinions on the story, characters, what happened in the episode, etc. I'll be taking notes during the show while I'm watching it, so I don't forget what I want to talk about. Also, I'm probably going to try and be comedic and funnily critical in order to add some spice to the review, so you guys don't fall asleep while reading it. I think that's about it. If you have any questions, then please ask them because I'm sure I missed something. EDIT: I'm adding a rule that if I don't enjoy a season after the first 3 episodes then we'll move onto the next series. The reason I'm adding this is because there are 38 Seasons of Super Sentai and each of them have 50 or so episodes. This would be a very long thread that would last many years if we did the entire series.

Hexagon War What is Hexagon?: Power Rangers Hexagon was an idea the writers of Power Rangers had after the Power Rangers series, Wild Force. It would pit the Rangers against each other for many reasons that were never explained, but we'll be going through my fan interpretation since the series is WAY past Wild Force now. There will still be a divide between the heroes and different sides that will each have good reasons for being on those sides, but there will be new Ranger recruits. Take it as if the Rangers have been fighting against each other since Wild Force, so many past Rangers are dead which strengthens the ideals of both sides. Most of the Zords have been destroyed and the world is in constant fear of the next clash between the two groups and thus are trying to create new Rangers to stop this Hexagon War. You are those Rangers. Story: The five Rangers code-name, "TSKF" which stands for Taskforce, have been chosen as the best officers in the army and given the assignment to infiltrate Hexagon to gather information on what caused the Hexagon War in the first place, dismantle or kill the Rangers in both Hexagon and the Phantom Brigade, and stop the new threat that is growing that both sides of the war won't acknowledge.
