Denshi Sentai Denziman (電子戦隊デンジマン Denshi Sentai Denjiman, translated into English as Electron Squadron Electromagnetic - Man) is Toei's fourth entry to its Super Sentai series. It was broadcasted from February 2, 1980, to January 31, 1981. It was Toei’s second series with a Marvel copyright, but without involvement from Marvel.


3,000 years ago, the Vader Clan devastated Denzi Star. Denzi Land, an island from Denzi Star, landed on Earth. In modern times, the computer of Denziland awoke the Denzidog IC when it detected the Vader Clan approaching Earth. IC found five young people (who may or may not be descendants of the Denzi people) to become the Denzimen in order to defend Earth, the Vader Clan's next target. The Denzimen begin a long record of success with the defeat of Vader Monster number 00, Flying Squirreler.

As the battle escalates, they realize that they themselves may be descendants of the Denzi people. If so, they are not alone; other descendants do exist, scattered around the Earth. Queen Hedrian, struggling in her attempts to make the world a living nightmare, receives an offer of assistance from the space wanderer Demon King Banriki. She accepts it, not realizing that ODK's real goal is the conquest of Earth for himself. He captures the Vader Castle and torments the Denzimen with his Omnipotent Monse. Hedrer goes into battle himself giant-sized, only to die a tragic death. The Denzimen find themselves helpless against Banriki and his monster until IC sacrifices himself to become a circuit for the DaiDenzin. Banriki and his monster are defeated. Hedrian escapes to the North Pole, where she sleeps, encased in ice, seemingly defeated for good.

Why It Rocks

  1. The theme song and ending were catchy to listen to.
  2. The Characters are very likable, especially the Rangers.
  3. It's sequel, Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan is awesome.
  4. Amazing fight scenes.
  5. This was the first Super Sentai season to have portable transformation device.
  6. It featured the very first Sentai Robo that can change into another form, DaiDenzin
  7. Kenji Ohba Plays as Daigoro Oume/DenziBlue, He was one of the first Sentai Actors to play multiple rangers with different colors.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. The suit designs were pretty weak, at least compared to the previous three teams. Even the mech looks pretty laughable
