Overall: Top Tier
I believe I said it while talking about hurricaneger, but I did pretty much prefer Ninja Storm out of the two. Of course, Ninja Storm itself is very power rangers. It's the cool sports of the early 2000s, it's a lot faster and we get to give all the rangers bikes early on. I love the jokes in this series, but I'm an easy please 5 year old.
This is also one of the few power rangers series where I feel pretty confident talking about each individual ranger, so I think that speaks for itself. I also just loved the dynamics of the rangers in this series, they did a good job of making them feel like friends.
I also really like a lot of the changes they made, especially with the villains. First off, I don't have to keep hearing about "that". I really like Lothor and like him being related to Watanabe-sensei, I know it's more of a power rangers theme to thing to have families at odds but I think it worked well in this story. He's not the most intimidating but he's intimidating enough.
I love Marah and Kapri, this was such a nice step up from their sentai counterparts and they made some really fun female villains. The twist genuinely got me due to how much comic relief had come from the villains and I was super excited. After having such fun enjoyable villains, having them get serious towards the end of the series was really exciting.
Vexacus was also a great villain to watch, he really helped play up the villain side of their team, following through with some of the stuff from Hurricaneger. However, I did prefer Marah and Kapri to everyone else in this.
I need to mention is somewhere so just quickly Tori constantly sounds dubbed over and sometimes like they've put an underwater filter on her, and it is extremely weird.
Watch Ninja Storm, you'll have a good time.
