Chōjin Sentai Jetman

Chōjin Sentai Jetman is the fifteenth entry of the Super Sentai television series. It aired between February 15, 1991 to February 14, 1992, with a total of 51 episodes. The series pays homage to the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman anime series, using a similar bird motif and a similar setup with some of its characters.

This series takes place in 199X on the Earth Ship, the command centre of a defence agency called Sky Force, the guardians of peace on Earth. In the ship, scientists have developed “Birdonic Waves”, a newly developed technology which gives the subject superhuman abilities. Experiments called “J-Project” were successful. Aya Odagiri, the director of the project, chooses five elite Sky Force officials from Earth to use this technology. Ryu Tendoh, one of the Sky Force officers, is successfully exposed to the Birdonic Waves, making him the first Jetman, the Red Hawk.

However, the Earth Ship is suddenly attacked by Vyram, an evil outer-dimensional organization bent on inter-dimensional domination. They successfully destroy the ship, apparently killing Ryu’s lover and fellow candidate member Rie. In the chaos, the remaining Birdonic Waves for the other four officials become scattered on Earth, hitting four civilians. Odagiri and Tendoh successfully escape and begin searching on Earth for the four remaining Jetman, training them to aid them in stopping Vyram’s plans of conquering their dimension.

The series later follows the tribulations of Ryu as he learns of Rie’s survival and enlistment in the Vyram forces, as well as a love triangle between Gai, Ryu, and Kaori.
