Shout! Factory’s Gosei Sentai Dairanger DVD collection was the February 19, 2016 “Critic’s Pick” by contributor Robert Lloyd in the entertainment section of the Los Angeles Times.
The elements of Japan’s “Super Sentai” TV franchise are familiar, because we have long since seen them domestically repurposed as “The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.” There are color-coded masked and helmeted heroes skilled in balletic-gymnastic martial arts; giant sentient transforming mechanical animals; monsters who grow big and stomp around miniature landscapes like Godzilla before them. But the unaltered original item has a flavor of its own — at once more spiritual, if that’s quite the word, and more slapstick, more romantic and more comical.
