What adds more to the sci-fi thing is the atmosphere in the future, the holograms, how the “lighting” in the scenes in the future looked like along with the aliens and how the beings living in the future dressed up. What’s more is that altering history is serious business that adds up to the futuristic feel that this show has. If there is one thing I noticed about this series is that their enemy likes to disguise as Captain Ryuya, which makes me think that there is something fishy about that guy. Heck, even after it was all cleared up that Ryuya has nothing to do with what is happening, I still have this feeling that Ryuya is an important character after his look alike, Tetsuya appeared and became an accident Timeranger.
As for Sion, I just love his eccentricity. As for Domon, he trying to flirt Yuri was fun as so as his other reactions… so yeah. For Tetsuya, the fact that he was just some random passerby still interests me along with the fact that he was an accidental Red Ranger. For our Blue Ranger… who was he anyway? First impression about the Londars Family, they are one cunning group of villains. I mean, they fooled a couple of people for them to escape plus the fact that they are a mafia family along with their desire to change time for their own advantage makes them one really good group of villains to watch.
Overall, it was a strong start in this series, but the unusual use of CGI partly ruined it for me. But hey, it was created during the year 2000 and if just plainly ignored it, Timeranger has the makings of one good sci-fi series that in my opinion, it never felt like an average Super Sentai series. Asides from that, the strong introduction of most characters in the series makes this opening quite good. If there is one thing I can complain about this series asides from the mediocre CGI is that Blue was quite forgettable and the weird slow motion effects.
