The Battle Fever saga begins when FBI agent Diane Martin is sent to Japan in pursuit of an assassin. There she encounters the help of Japan's Ministry of Defense special task force, lead by Kurama Tetsuzan Shogun. He and Diane's father, the FBI director, unveil that the assassin is a member of a secret cult known as Egos. The Egos cult, under the leadership of their evil war god, Satan Egos, had already ravaged the Western Europe and the Americas, and was now spreading into Japan. Diane's father makes arrangements for her to stay in Japan and expose the evil cult, but he is killed before he can return to the US.

General Kurama assembles four young agents who had been dispatched around the world for training along with Diane Martin and outfits the team with special battle suits that enhance all of their natural fighting ability. Together they battle Egos as Battle Fever J.

Battle Fever J was the first series to use the term Super Sentai and where the heroes must control a giant robot to defeat a monster who itself has grown to a gigantic size. Also it was Toei's second co-production with Marvel.

I usually find myself having a hard time with pre Power Rangers toku, but this was a very fun and interesting watch. To my knowledge it's one of the only really experimental sentai's and seeing all those little things they were trying out for the first time and figuring out here was lots of fun and gave great perspective to the rest of the franchise. Putting aside the more historical aspects, this was also just a really fun show with a very diverse set of characters, some on the very goofy and fun end of the spectrum and others in the really serious (for the time) and clearly extensively thought out end. And holy crap, this show actually manages to have tones of "Kid of the week" plots without it getting super annoying and repetitive just by having those plots be a kid who is a regular member of the cast half the time! Sure there were some serious low points for quality, but it's normally just two or three episodes followed by another five enjoyable ones. This isn't going at the top of my "Toku's I highly recommend" list any time but it was a damn solid watch.
