In the year 3000, time travel becomes illegal after a time paradox crisis. The Time Protection Department is established to stop time crimes. Four new enlistee cadets of the TPD are tricked by Don Dolnero and his gang into letting them time-travel to the 20th century to commit various crimes. To protect history, the four cadets pursue them. There they encounter a severe problem: the Timeranger program requires five members for the first operation. They thus force a present-day martial artist, Tatsuya Asami (TimeRed), to join them, allowing them to become the Timerangers.
Why It Rocks
Normally, the Pink Ranger is always an ally like all the other rangers. However, in this case, it's the one and only time where she (Yuri/TimePink) is the leader, though Tatsuya/TimeRed is still the central character.
TimeFire is an awesome Sixth Ranger, and it was also the first time that a Sixth Ranger was the same color as the Red Ranger.
In fact, he looked nearly identical to TimeRed, save for the jagged arrow and black accents that TimeFire has in contrast to TimeRed's normal arrow and white accents.
One of the few extremely dark Sentai series... in a good way.
Having the motif of time-traveling is quite unique and appropriate considering that this is the 24th season of Super Sentai.
It introduces the new logo of Super Sentai, which is pretty awesome to look at.
Don Dolnero is an incredibly intimidating villain.
It was also aired alongside Kamen Rider Kuuga, the first Super Sentai series to do so since the ill-fated Kousoku Sentai Turboranger and Kamen Rider Black RX.
Ryūya Asami (the original TimeFire) is one of the vilest main antagonists in all of Super Sentai history, having no redeeming qualities to his character whatsoever.
Its Power Rangers adaptation (Time Force) was faithful to the source material.
