Kousoku Sentai Turboranger (高速戦隊ターボレンジャー 'Kōsoku Sentai Tāborenjā', translated into English as High Speed Squadron Turboranger) is the 13th entry of Super Sentai series produced by Toei Company and Bandai. It was originally aired on TV Asahi from March 4, 1989, to February 23, 1990, with a total of 51 episodes.

Bad Qualities

  1. It has possibly some of the least likable Rangers team in the franchise's history (at least, Before the next season, Ohranger, Gingaman, Gaoranger and Kyoryuger) with Daichi Yamagata/Black Turbo is mostly the one to deliver it when someone does something completely improper. And when he does, he's screaming like hell, Very similar to Onari Yamanouchi from Kamen Rider Ghost
  2. The show had generic story of "villains does this, the heroes has to stop it" with anti-pollution concept.
  3. It was ruined by shallow and forgettable characters, and even the main heroes didn't even get a proper introduction.
  4. The villains are very boring.
  5. The plot was very rushed and just drags into the show to individual episodes to be something like Flashman or Liveman, Unless it really picks up at the second half.
  6. The acting was not that good.

Good Qualities

  1. There are some likable characters such as Riki Honoo/Red Turbo and Haruna Morikawa/Pink Turbo.
  2. The Finale was decent at it's best.
  3. The theme song was very catchy.
  4. Some Super Sentai fans might enjoy watching this.
  5. The suits designs are high quality.
