While most Sentai seasons are loved by kids, teenagers, and adults, there were a few seasons in the franchise that ended up appealing to only one of the age groups.
Dai Sentai Goggle-V. The season before Goggle-V, Sun Vulcan, was a season that had attempted to catch the attention of the more mainstream audiences. And it worked, thanks to how catchy Sun Vulcan was. Succeeding Sun Vulcan, we get Goggle-V. A lot of older fans weren't so keen with Goggle-V due to how crazy and silly the season was. While kids absolutely loved it. Today, Goggle-V is more accepted among older fans for it's unique creativity.
Hikari Sentai Maskman. This season mostly appealed to older audiences. Maskman was much more serious and slow-paced compared to it's predecessors. Because of this, kids got bored. However, many older tokusatsu fans absolutely loved this season. Thus, Maskman still managed to be quite popular in Japan (even if not as much as Changeman, Flashman, or Liveman).
Kousoku Sentai Turboranger. Coming right after the very intense and well crafted season that was Liveman, some older fans tended to find Turboranger to be a bit of a disappointment. Thus, more kids ended up watching Turboranger than adults. Though Turboranger still had a healthy amount of adult fans. Many who absolutely loved the characters. And the character Yamimaru went on to become a fan favorite.
Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman. A lot of older fans were turned off by this season due to it's excessive over-use of it's "kid-friendly" nature. Fiveman ended up having more kids watching it.
Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger. Older fans were turned off by this season, due to similar reasons for why they were turned off from Fiveman. Though many kids loved Zyuranger. The only things that the older fans really liked in this season was both Burai and Bandora.
Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive. GoGoFive tended to have more older fans than younger fans. Mostly due to it's more serious and intense nature compared to other seasons. Though GoGoFive still had a healthy amount of kids watching this season.
Mirai Sentai Timeranger. Like GoGoFive, Timeranger also grabbed more older fans than younger fans for the same reasons.
Gekiranger was also a season that had appealed to older fans more than younger fans. After the really popular Boukenger, younger fans felt less interested in Gekiranger, due to how it had noticeably less merchandise than Boukenger did. Gekiranger had a lot less mecha, and it started out with just three members instead of five. And if not counting Rio and Mele, Gekiranger never goes beyond five members. Plus, Gou and Ken appeared a bit later than most additional warriors. Gekiranger also tended to not use their mecha as often as Boukenger did. Even Rio and Mele's mecha appeared for just a couple of eps. Due to being noticeably less merchandise-driven, younger fans were turned off. However, older fans absolutely loved the intense fight scenes, multi-layered creativity, complex characters, complex plots, and the character dynamics of the show.
