Honorable Mentions


Who Gives the Most Hype? Power Rangers fans who jumped ship after it was temporarily canceled & the PR Samurai hater bandwagon.
Any Hype Backlash? Not really.
My Personal Opinions: It was only my second sentai series, and I liked it at the time, but I also have no real desire to rewatch it.

Who Gives the Most Hype? Operation Overdrive haters.
Any Hype Backlash? Gokaiger fans get livid when you call Boukenger a better anniversary season.
My Personal Opinions: Boukenger is so average that it's basically the perfect amalgamation of Super Sentai as a whole.

Who Gives the Most Hype? Foreign fans who got official dubs of a few 80s sentai shows.
Any Hype Backlash? Not really.
My Personal Opinions: Maskman is "Filler: The Series" on a good day. The heroes are jerks, the (male) villains are boring, and the real protagonists are a pair of twins that don't even interact for like 40 straight episodes.
The 1995 series, Ohranger brought back a lot of the same concepts, but actually did them right this time.

Who Gives the Most Hype? It's been growing in popularity since the Shout Factory DVDs have become a thing.
Any Hype Backlash? Not really.
My Personal Opinions: A much as I don't want to hate on people liking "silly" toku, because they're much better than the alternative, I can't help but not see the appeal of Carranger. Most of the humor just doesn't land correctly for me and the heroes are kinda jerks. A lot of other shows have done comedy way better than it's done here.

Top 10


Who Gives the Most Hype? Nostalgia-driven 90s kids.
Any Hype Backlash? Fandom hits the 90s kids right back.
My Personal Opinions: Season one is just kinda mediocre, season two is awful, and season three is some of the best storytelling the franchise has ever done.

Who Gives the Most Hype? Some of the earliest fans to watch sentai fansubs.
Any Hype Backlash? Not really.
My Personal Opinions: A really mediocre series where the only major saving graces were the Gothic Lolita twins and the Green Ranger.

Who Gives the Most Hype? Fans of "dark" tokusatsu.
Any Hype Backlash? Here and there.
My Personal Opinions: Fuck Toshiki Inoue. The man ruins female characters. If he's not the head writer, sometimes he can be reigned in, but I wouldn't let him be within 100 yards of my female characters just to be on the safe side.

Who Gives the Most Hype? This season has been growing in popularity over the past several years.
Any Hype Backlash? It has always been pretty divisive, but the hate is dying down as of late.
My Personal Opinions: S.P.D. is a horrible season, second to only Super Megaforce, and it got to the point where I was actually rooting for the main team to LOSE the final battle.

Who Gives the Most Hype? Hipster 90s kids.
Any Hype Backlash? Plenty.
My Personal Opinions: Zyuranger is super BORING, and despite starting the series years ago, I still have yet to watch the final handful of episodes because of it.
Rate:
Watched Wanted Custom

Who Gives the Most Hype? Insecure fans who are embarrassed to be watching a children's show, giving the allusion that the season is something that it's not.
Any Hype Backlash? A very vocal, very small minority.
My Personal Opinions: The first 11 episodes of the season are super unsure of itself and what it wanted to be, just coming off as really awkward and badly paced most of the time. However, the final 2/3 are some of the best television the franchise has ever given us.

Who Gives the Most Hype? No real subset of fans in particular.
Any Hype Backlash? A small minority.
My Personal Opinions: This season is so horrible that I actually quit watching it for a short time. Then you all had to drag me back in by screaming "there's another girl!" from the top of rooftops, and I hate every single one of you for it because I spent most of those remaining episodes just wishing for male Violet to show back up again.

Who Gives the Most Hype? No real subset of fans in particular.
Any Hype Backlash? A very tiny minority.
My Personal Opinions: While the writing is great, Wesley Collins is the worst spotlight hog in all of Power Rangers. The story may be good, but he doesn't give anyone else their fair share (Eric only takes it by force) and degrades the Pink Ranger's character by turning her into someone for him to "fix."

Who Gives the Most Hype? Newcomers who started with this series just because they saw the legend war cold open.
Any Hype Backlash? A small minority.
My Personal Opinions: Gokaiger is all show and no substance. There is nothing to really sink your teeth into. While it may be really enjoyable, it's also really vapid as well. "Let's make this showy" is the perfect catchphrase for them because otherwise they'd have squat.

Who Gives the Most Hype? 90s kids who actually stuck around and kept watching through the ratings slump of the previous few years.
Any Hype Backlash? Not really.
My Personal Opinions: In Space really doesn't hold up at all. As a kid I loved it, and it kept me hooked after all of my friends jumped ship by the end of the previous year, but I just cannot sit through it anymore without nostalgia goggles.

Seasons/Series of Power Rangers & Super Sentai that, in my opinion, are the most overrated and overhyped out of the entire franchise.

THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY ARE BAD SHOWS!
Some of these seasons might even be one of my favorites. They just do not live up to the hype that is given to them by fans.

Ranked by the how annoying I find the hype.
