Ah Magiranger, I believe I watched this one after finishing Bouken. One of the few themes I loved about this was family. I really outta try out GoGoV and Fiveman >>;
The suits were quite nice. Very shiny and pulls off the magical theme really well.
one thing magiranger got right that gogov didnt: ranking purely by age not gender then age
Indeed I also loved they were a family. I felt like they were relatives of mine somehow,lol
I forgot to add about the suits that Wolzard's suit was a masterpiece. One of the best suits I've ever seen
But it isn't ranked by age is it? Red's the youngest yet he's the leader.

Even MagiMother's suit is nice. The only suits I don't like very much are the Legendary versions of the five main rangers; I prefer the original suits much more over their upgraded ones.

A lot of Sentai other than Magiranger have romances. What about Jetman, Timeranger, Abaranger, Maskman, and more? IMO the romance was one of the weakest things in this series. It was silly, gratuitous, cheesy, and felt more like a soap opera than Super Sentai to me.

i meant role call more so ... fiveman swapped Pink and Black despite Pink being the middle child

It all comes together in a way that allows you to see the unique aspects of each one of the Ozu, but you can tell they are the same family. To spread the theme even further: Magiking's suit...there is a reason why it's my favorite Sentai mecha, and it stems from it's first appearance, lifting its hat. By about halfway through, there's a scene where Magiking is smirking when lifting its hat, and it was...well, that's when it was cemented that Magiking became my favorite mecha.

The too long, didn't read version: I like them. >_>
I also felt a connection to this sentai because I'm a middle child of five myself and I love the color blue.
I just don't end up marrying a Sun God who has a train fetish.
I swear, the order is the exact same except the youngest in my family is a girl, not a boy.
What did you think of the Opening theme?
