This year saw the 40th anniversary of Goranger's first episode and we're about 6 months away from seeing the 40th series in the franchise, and I've recently been thinking about which is my favourite out of each of those ten year series periods. So I thought I'd ask now while it was on my mind - from each of the groups of 10 I've listed below, which is your single favourite series?

First 10 series -
Goranger, JAKQ, Battle Fever, Denziman, Sun Vulcan, Goggle-V, Dynaman, Bioman, Changeman, Flashman

Second 10 series -
Maskman, Liveman, Turboranger, Fiveman, Jetman, Zyuranger, Dairanger, Kakuranger, Ohranger, Carranger

Third 10 series -
Megaranger, Gingaman, GoGo V, Timeranger, Gaoranger, Hurricaneger, Abaranger, Dekaranger, Magiranger, Boukenger

Fourth 10 series (so far) -
Gekiranger, Go-Onger, Shinkenger, Goseiger, Gokaiger, Go-Busters, Kyoryuger, ToQger, Ninninger, ?????

First 10: Changeman and Flashman

Second 10: Liveman, Jetman, Dairanger, Kakuranger

Third 10: Megaranger, Gingaman, Timeranger

I liked him when he wasn't a god
If I had to pick just one:

First 10: Flashman

Second 10: Liveman

Third 10: Timeranger

Fourth 10: Gokaiger


First 10 series - Haven't watch any so far back

Second 10 series - Jetman (Only watched 2 here, the other is Dairanger which is also a good series)

Third 10 series - Dekaranger

Fourth 10 series - Gokaiger (Gekiranger comes in 2nd, but Gokaiger is still the most epic Sentai I've ever watched. I haven't watched Shinkenger yet though, which many people love a lot)
First 10: Bioman (Although it's the only show from the original 10 I've watched in its entirety)

Second 10: Jetman (Also my favorite Sentai)

Third 10: Dekaranger (Boukenger comes in a close second)

Fourth 10: Gokaiger (Really the only Sentai I've fully enjoyed from the last decade. The rest range anywhere from decent to poor)
