Choujin Sentai Jetman Manga/Graphic Novel


 Graphic Novel condensed from B-Club
Released 8/30 1996
Artist: Akiko Fujii
Original Work: Saburou Yate

 A manga sequel to Jetman was published in 1996 authored by Akiko Fujii, in cooperation with the series’ writing team (still under the Saburo Yatsude pen name). It was titled Chōjin Sentai Jetman: Toki o Kakete (鳥人戦隊ジェットマン 時を駆けて?, “Time Flies”). Set five years after the series (and, therefore, two years after the story ends), it shows the four remaining Jetmen rejoining to battle a revived Radiguet, who had possessed Tranza’s broken body. Radiguet kidnaps Ryu and Kaori’s one-year-old daughter Aya Tendo and, much in the same way he turned Rie into Maria before, he accelerates her growth and brainwashes her into becoming Ruma, whom he considers a daughter.
Meanwhile, Gai’s empty spot in the team is filled by a young rock guitarist called Jeff Kensaki, who is empowered by Birdonic Waves after a meteorite crashes next to him, and becomes Green Eagle. In this manga series, the Jetman uniform is slightly different, with the helmets more closely resembling those of Gatchaman (translucent, protruding visors, and uncovered faces).
