Juukou B-Fighter by robinosuke Juukou B-Fighter by robinosuke
I made this because when it comes to metal hero series, Juukou B-Fighter is my most favorite as well as its sequel B-Fighter Kabuto during my childhood days in Chiba, Japan..

Juukou B-Fighter (重甲ビーファイター), was a 1995 Japanese tokusatsu television series. B-Fighter is short for "Beetle Fighter". It was part of Toei's ongoing Metal Hero Series. It dealt with three members of the prestigious Earth Academia (アースアカデミア Āsu Akademia) fighting against the evil forces of the otherworldly Jamahl Empire. The action footage and props were used for Big Bad Beetleborgs.


The B-Fighters

The members use Bio-armor developed by the Earth Academia's brightest and infused with the life force of insects.

Takuya Kai/Blue Beet (甲斐 拓也/ブルービート) is a 23-year-old entomologist at the Earth Academia Japan Branch and is the team leader. He is very tender-hearted. His sense of responsibility is very strong. The first to meet Guru in the South American rainforest, he was also the first to gain a B-Commander and use his suit. As Blue Beet, his armor was modeled after a male Japanese rhinoceros beetle. His blood was used in the creation of his "evil twin", Shadow. After learning the true colors of the shadow, he feels responsible and goes missing. In the second half of the series, Blue Beet gained the ability to evolve into Super Blue Beet (スーパーブルービート) by the command "Metal-Phose!" (重甲超進化(メタルフォーゼ)).

Daisaku Katagiri/G-Stag (片霧 大作/ジースタッグ) at 23, is an impetuous but nature-loving man. A tree doctor, Daisaku claims to be able to hear trees and plants when they are dying. He was captured along with Rei by the Jamahl during the start of the invasion of Earth. Upon receiving his B-Commander, Daisaku made quick work of Jamar soldiers. He was aquaphobic until he overcame his fear to save his father Daitetsu Katagiri, a fisherman, from a trap laid by the Ebikaania. As the most physically powerful of the B-Fighters, G-Stag's armor is modeled after a stag beetle. G-Stag is strong enough to lift the Jamar soldiers and toss them around like rag dolls.

Rei Hayama/Reddle I (羽山 麗/初代レッドル) is a 22-year-old animal instructor at Earth Academia's Aquarium. Captured along with Daisaku at first and receiving her B-Commander at the same time, she demolished the Jamar soldiers before joining forces with Takuya and Daisaku. The only female B-Fighter, her armor was modeled after a female Japanese rhinoceros beetle. Reddle is the fastest and most nimble of the B-Fighters. She eventually left for the South American branch of Earth Academia to do research and help with protecting the wildlife there.


Mai Takatori/Reddle II (鷹取 舞/2代目レッドル 22-53) is Rei's successor, a young and cheerful 19-year-old student who was "chosen" by Rei's B-Commander as the next Reddle. Mai has a positive look on life and tries to see the good in everything. She also has a love for animals.

Actually just the armor was the bad guy as it was a robot instead of a human. They reused some of the costumes for the remnants of the Machine Empire. With Shadowborg being General Venjix.
