Shout! Factory is bringing Choujin Sentai Jetman to DVD in September 2018!
The season will mark the tenth installment in Shout! Factory’s line of complete season Sentai DVD’s that have delighted Toku fans worldwide, and the first season that predates Zyuranger.
Jetman, which initially aired on Japanese airwaves in 1991, was never adapted overseas as a Power Rangers season.
Fans can check out the season synopsis below.
Jetman takes place in 1991 on the Earth Ship, the command center of an international defence agency called Sky Force, the guardian of peace on Earth. In the ship, scientists have developed “Birdonic Waves”, a newly developed technology which gives the subject superhuman abilities. The experiments called “J-Project” were successful. Aya Odagiri, the director of the project, chose five elite Sky Force officials from Earth to use this technology. Ryu Tendo, one of the Sky Force officers, was successfully exposed to the Birdonic waves, making him the first Jetman, the Red Hawk.
However, the Earth Ship is suddenly attacked by Vyram, an evil outer-dimensional organization bent on inter-dimensional domination. They successfully destroy the ship and seemingly killing Ryu’s lover and fellow candidate member Rie, in the chaos. The remaining Birdonic waves that were meant for the other four officials become scattered on Earth, hitting four civilians instead. Odagiri and Tendo successfully escape and begin searching on Earth for the four remaining Jetman, training them to aid them in stopping Vyram’s plans of conquering our dimension.
The official cover art for the DVD has yet to be revealed.

Shout! Factory first released Sentai DVD’s in February 2015 with Zyuranger, the show that later became known as the international sensation of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. With Zyuranger DVD’s positively selling, Shout! Factory followed up its release with complete season DVD’s for Dairanger, Kakuranger, Ohranger, Carranger, Megaranger, Gingaman, GoGoV, and Timeranger, all of which fans can order on Shout!
