The Sentai Series began back in 1975 starting with Shotaro Ishinomori's Himitsu Sentai Goranger. It lasted 2 years and then came JAKQ Dengekitai, another Sentai TV series. After that, in 1979, Sentai became Super Sentai when Battle Fever J came out. Due to its incredible success, the Super Sentai Series spawned other incarnations such as Denshi Sentai Denjiman, Chodenshi Bioman, Hikari Sentai Maskman, and Chojin Sentai Jetman.
Kagaku Sentai Dynaman was the first Sentai to be shown in American public, but it was only short lived and it was only a parody dub.

However, in 1993, Saban Entertainment decided to make an Americanization of 1992's Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger as the first Power Rangers series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. It wasn't as good as Zyuranger or any of its Sentai counterparts, but it was great. Power Rangers became so popular, that it spawned sequels using footage from other Sentai incarnations such as Ohranger, Carranger, and Megaranger.

Power Rangers in Space was the last continuation of MMPR, and it was awesome. Saban decided that since the internet was growing, that PR should be close to their Sentai counterparts, and slowly, but surely, it was working. And that is why Power Rangers Time Force was considered the second best PR season, though they still needed to stop emphasizing too much on the Battlizers. Power Rangers Wild Force was going to be next on that awesome list of PR shows, and if Saban still made PR seasons, BOTH PR and Sentai would still kick ass today.

However, in 2001, tragedy struck. DISNEY BOUGHT SABAN! Many PR and Sentai fans were greatly upset, and as a result, Power Rangers Wild Force was the only decent PR show from Disney, but it wasn't as good as everyone expected it to be. Then all of the other Disney PR shows such as Ninja Storm and Operation Overdrive were TOTAL GARBAGE!

Super Sentai, however, was still going strong.
