Hikari Sentai Maskman (光戦隊マスクマン, Hikari Sentai Masukuman, translated into English as Light Squadron Maskman) is the 11th entry of Toei's Super Sentai Series. It aired on TV Asahi from February 28, 1987 to February 20, 1988, with a total of 51 episodes.

Why it Can’t Save Itself

  1. For starters, the opening is very toned down and lackluster, especially compared to Dengeki Sentai Changeman and Choushinsei Flashman where their openings are very jazzy and high energy

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The show is very aestheically pleasing, with the suits feeling very sleek and timeless, along with the mecha being badass
  2. The team are full of likable characters, including Takeru/Red Mask, Kenta/Black Mask, Akira/Blue Mask, Haruka/Yellow Mask and Momoko/Pink Mask.
  3. There are a few good episodes, most notably the one where they introduce the one off ranger Ryo Asuka/X1 Mask, who was a prototype for the Sixth Ranger tradition
  4. It's one of the few Sentais to get a HUGE international release, making it popular in Europe and South America
