Storyline

In the late 90's, a orbiting Earth space center run by the Earth Defense Force Sky Force has commissioned a ceremony on the "J-Project". Lead by Commander Aya Odagiri who has selected five officials to be exposed to "Birdonic Waves" a newly developed technology that can give a human super abilities. Among the subjects to the project is Ryu Tendoh who is the first volunteer to be exposed to the Birdonic Waves and thus becomes the first nominated member of the newly established Jetman team. The other four subjects were about to be exposed to the same waves as Ryu did until the space center was attacked by the Vyram, an evil outer-dimensional organization bent on inter-dimensional domination. The Vyram successfully destroy the space center along with killing most of the humans on board. After the destruction, the remaining Birdonic Waves that were meant for the now dead four officials got scattered on the surface of the Earth. Hitting four different civilians who were going about their ... Written by J LeGault

Changeable Characters and a Drama for nothing ending
24 May 2018 | by biggestspiderfanSee all my reviews

The series was enjoyable for the most part. It was more violent than recent Sentai shows and it was definetly more serious for a majority of the time.

I liked the suit and mecha designs and the characters were likeable for the most part.

But here are my problems with this show:

  • the love triangle plot gets annoying very fast
  • the goals of the villans are not really understandable most of the time. they just want to kill the Jetman because that gets them to elect their leader? Guys how about simply voting or throwing a coin or something?
  • Ako and Reita are not contributing anything to the plot. Most of the time they are only there so that Kaori has someone to talk to or that Gai and Ryu can be seperated from another if they try to punch each other again
  • The ending (i mean the last few minutes) were drama for the sake of drama. Nothing more
