This is my second article I figured I would do it on this series

Bioman premiered in Japan in the year 1984 and is part of the Super sentai Genre and was dubbed into a few other languages but never aired in the us (ironic considering there was an english dub though unlike Dynaman their series wasn't used as a parody dub)

This sentai had many first it was the first sentai series to have a female yellow sentai warrior as well as two female sentai warrios on one team.

Before I go any farther here is the cast including the cast change early on as well as the plot synopsis

Plot:Many centuries ago, the android Peebo and the Bio Robo came to Earth from the fallen Bio Star. The Bio Robo showered five people with the Bio Particles, which would be passed on to later generations. In the present day, Doctor Man and his Shin Teikoku (New Empire) Gear threaten the world. Peebo must find the descendants of the original Bio Particle-showered five to form the Choudenshi (Super Electronic Squadron) Bioman.

Shiro/Red one



Shiro is the leader of the team as well as the oldest member. The bioparticles gave him the ability to talk to animals. Before this all happend Shiro had been an astronaut. He was the first of the original five we see on screne when the series starts. He pilots bio jet 1 with Hikaru. Although he is a bit of a hot head when things happen he doesn't blame his teammates. He is a bit overprotective of his teammates (such as trying to keep Jun from joining after Mika was killed.) Usually he doesn't yell much at his teammates if they did something wrong or stupid though he does get aggrivated with them. He is generally a nice guy otherwise.
Shingo/Green Two http://www.retrojunk.com/content/child/image/77928/show/

The second in command of the team Shingo might act like a tough guy but he does have a soft spot for children. Shingo usually is the one that drives the bio turbo car. Though a bit of a hothead Shingo is usually pretty mellow. He pilots bio jet 2 with Ryuuta and Mika (and later Jun). Shingo is basically the strongman of the group he incorporates breakdancing into some of his fighting abilities. Shingo has on occasion played mediator once or twice (although that usually falls to Hikaru) such as trying to calm things down when Mika and Shiro got into an argument about something.

Ryuuta/Blue Three



Ryuuta started out as a diver, although usually pretty quiet he will make himself heard when nessicary. He pilots bio jet 2 with Shingo and Mika (and later Jun) Ryuuta shared a type of rivalry with the evil android Prince. Ryuuta is a bit boyish and nimble due to his diving.note:he seemed to be the one character that had the second least character development. (The first being Mika due to her being killed off.)

Mika/Yellow Four 1



Mika was basically the rebel of the group (similar to Gai from Jetman) Mika was the last member to join up (as well as the most reluctant) she finally joined up when she had some sense knocked into her (figurtiviely and literally). Before being recruited as a bioman Mika was trying to become a photographer and follow in her brother's footsteps.Athough Mika is a bit of a loner her heart is in the right place.She had a brief rivalry with Farrah Cat. Despite the fact that Mika doesn't like to fight when push comes to shove Mika can kick ass and will stand by her friends.Unfortunately at some point in the series Mika was killed saving the other four team members. Mika piloted Bio jet 2 with Shingo and Ryuuta.


Jun/Yellow Four 2



The last member to to join the bioman team Jun was recruited after it was discovered she also carried the bio particles,she replaced Mika (although how these two share an ancestor is kind of confusing.) Although a bit naieve Jun will stand by the rest of the team. Jun is also an archer before being recruited to the team she was training for the olmpyics and was first shown when she encountered Hikaru who was battleing some mecha clones (the foot soldiers of the neo empire). Jun has been prone to moments of self doubt such as when she accidently shot a teammate. After becoming the second yellow four Jun piloted bio jet 2 with Shingo and Ryuuta.

Hikaru/ Pink Five



Hikaru was a carnival flutist when the series began. At first she was most timid of the group constantly screaming and needing to be saved but she eventually evolved into a strong character by the end of the series. Although the most motherly when things get out of control if need be Hikaru will stand up for or to the rest of the team. Hikaru also has a softspot for nurses due to events in her childhood.This caused fritction between her and Jun when the Neo empire used this to their advantage. Sometimes though Hikaru's big heart can cause surprising results such as being able to teach a conscience to a computer brain that originally with the neo empire causing it to save the team at the cost of it's own life. Hikaru pilots bio jet 1 with Shiro.

note: The reason there are two yellow fours is because the actress for the first yellow four left under odd circumstances and no one is sure what actually happened just that she quit suddenly.

Here is the intro for the series (note other than cast switch it's basically the exact same intro)

intro 1


intro 2


Personally I thought this was one of the better sentai series in my opinon although I think some of the later series were better

I give this series a 9/10 It was a good series but the villains could have used more development and we had a couple plot holes such as the Mika and Jun issue
