Chojin Sentai Jetman (Famicom, 1991)

Could it be? Has the Living Tribunal returned in 2010? I think so.

I don’t know how I’ve lived this long without jamming the soundtrack to Chojin Sentai Jetman, a Famicom game based on one of the very best sentai series. I haven’t even played the game, but the music is ace, and it’s worth a listen for the titillating title theme rendition alone. If you’ve never seen it, soak it in first:

Hot dog, can Hironobu Kageyama ever croon! Composer Hiroyuki Iwatsukitaru knew this well, and faithfully translated said crooning to the Famicom soundchip. Being a kind gentleman, I ripped the NSF of Jetman into a .zip of MP3 files for your downloading pleasure. Get it!

There are definitely shades of Capcom in the soundtrack, Mega Man specifically. I plan on popping a ROM of the game in when I get back to Hoboken. It’s a Natsume title that’s apparently like Shatterhand with giant robot battles.

I like this one because it looks like they’re about to fist bump
