    Old 80's - 90's Japanese Action TV Series

    Hi all,

    I have been looking for 2 Japanese TV series that was aired back in the 90s or 80s. I was a kid back then, and I don't even remember what the names were. And the names were probably changed when the TV series was dubbed into my language anyway.

    I was hoping that someone could help me identify what TV series they were. I will do my best to describe what I remember of each.

    The first:

    This is a story about a ninja who is protecting this world. He lives 2 lives, one as an ordinary Japanese Citizen, and the other as this protector ninja. He can change into his ninja costume for anytime, by calling upon his armor (very much like Kamen Rider Black). His armor color was red however, and later on, he gets special upgrades to his armor that makes him even more invincible. I think the upgrades were shoulder blades, shin guards, and something on his helmet. That's about as much as I can remember.

    The second:

    Again, this off of the same category, but this time I think he's a police officer. He can change into a red (similar to Power Rangers) outfit. His helmet has a gray/silver radar looking thing on the top and he has a partner wearing the same thing in yellow. The greatest thing about this movie is his car. He owns a regular coupe white car (not sure what), but it can transform into a red cool sports car with all the gadgetries (Yes, very much like the Viper show).

    Anyway, that's how much I remember of the two TV series. Hopefully someone out there recalls better than me, or even know of a site that has information of the two.

    Anyway, this is my first post. Hope to hear from you guys soon.

    I can't believe how many of these Japanese Action TV Series there are. But those two aren't the ones I was talking about. The ninja was alone. He was red color. Yea, they look similar around the headgear, but this guys that I use to watch had hard (possibly supposedly fiberglass) body armor.

    And as for the second one, it's not that one either. The one I was talking about had red outfit and they are not metal like that. And it was a cool car too...a real coupe sports car.

    Hmm, so these aren't it, right?

    I actually haven't seen those TV series in 80's or 90's, so it may be hard to find.

    Wasn't there one called "Aka Kage" about a red masked ninja?

    I first thought about it, but it's a pretty old TV program.

    I think that is the series I am looking for, too.
    Here some things, I personally remeber:
    The actors where guys and a girl between 18 and 25.
    They where students.
    The car was also made by Bandai as a toy car 1:18 scale.
    When you put in a red transperent card into the car, it changes to a red super car.
    The series was not older than 1982.

    Can anyone help anthoj or me?

    Is it Car Ranger by any chance?
  9. djmac Brundlefly

    No, I'm sorry, that wasn't it.
    I think I remeber, it was a police-car in the end, when it transferred from "normal" to "red".
