This past January, Japanese film historian and popular Godzilla/tokusatsu expert August Ragone (author of Eiji Tsuburya: Master of Monsters) hosted the Super Sentai Spectacular for Shout!Factory TV. The event marathoned a chunk of Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, the series that would later be used in North America as the basis for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Mr. Ragone returns to the screen for another Super Sentai Spectacular, this time hosting a marathon of the highly acclaimed Gosei Sentai Dairanger. The monsters, mecha and Kiba Ranger (or White Ranger to the west) were used for Season 2 of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

What most western audiences didn't see from Dairanger were the spectacular fights and sleek costumes. Shout!Factory's official synopsis of the action packed series prepares audiences for best of Sentai:

“The three Tribes of the Daos Empire — Shura, Dai and Gorma — were peaceful until the Gorma set out to conquer the planet, launching a magical war between the Gorma and Dai Tribes that lasted for 5,000 years. In the end, both civilizations were lost… until now. The evil Gorma have returned. Now, it's up to Master Kaku to assemble a team of kids with high levels of chi to become the protectors of the Earth known as the Dairangers!"

The marathon will air on ShoutTV's website, May 21st. Who's ready for Dairanger?
