Storyline

Over 8,000 years ago, the Daos civilization flourished in Southern China. The Daos Empire consisted in three tribes: Dai, Shura (ancestors of today's humanity) and Gorma who lived harmonously. However, one day the Gorma Tribe tried to take over the Empire. Thus began the war between the Gorma and the Dai Tribe. The battle continued for 5,000 years, led by the Gorma Triumvirate. The Mythical Chi Beasts appeared to oppose the Gorma, whose magical powers had increased to the point where they could turn themselves into monsters. Five Dai warriors' chi powers had increased to the point where they could control the Mythical Chi Beasts. The war ended with the disappearance of both the Dai and Gorma Tribes. In 1993, the Gorma Tribe, one of the Daos' two missing branches, revived to take over the world. To counter them, Master Kaku assembled a team of five youths with high levels of chi. They became the Dairangers of present time. Written by Anonymous

overwhelmingly exciting
9 August 2006 | by sungodportalSee all my reviews

That guy doesn't know what he's talking about. I've seen every episode of this show (and Zyuranger) at least twice and I can tell you that it was anything but boring. Nearly every episode was totally awesome. Dairanger was a great step up from Zyuranger because it didn't look as cheap, had a less generic story (some of it was very complex and just fascinating), wasn't as light-hearted and childish, had 5 times the action in every episode, better and more colorful costumes and excellent music. Dairanger kind of has a retro feel to it in some of the designs and characters and the music totally takes that to the next level as well as the intensity of some of the scenes. What makes Dairanger so great though are the characters. There were tons of them and they were all great. All of the rangers had completely different personalities and it seemed like every episode there would be a new person coming into the fold (who were in a number of episodes afterward) that would somehow get involved with one of them and complicate things for both the Dairanger and the Gorma and they were always as interesting, if not more so then the main characters themselves. With Daigo there was Kujaku (her outfit was stunning), Ryou had Gene and Shouji had those three weird, not totally good, but not totally bad guys that he was always competing with and that's just the tip of the iceberg. This show had a really good mix of humor and seriousness as well. I could write about 1000 pages on why this show was so awesome, but the bottom line is: Dairanger totally puts Zyuranger and MMPR Season 2 to shame (no question) and is without a doubt one of the most interesting and exciting shows I have ever seen. I'm not exaggerating one bit. If you have the chance to watch a few episodes you will not be disappointed.
