Enban Sensou Bankid (円盤戦争バンキッド, Enban Sensō Bankiddo) is a 1976 tokusatsu series made by Toho. The series was a joint production with Nippon Television and aired in Japan from October 3, 1976 until March 23, 1977.

This was Toho's first direct answer to the Super Sentai series (particularly the first series, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger, which was still running on TV Asahi at the time), in that this series has five color-coded superheroes (a red leader, blue, pink, and two yellows). This series is also notable in that veteran designer Tohl Narita (the designer of Ultraman, Ultra Seven, the Gargantuas, etc.) designed the Bukimi Aliens, starting with Episode #6.

Plot

In this series, a team of five kids (a teenage boy, a teenage girl, and three young boys, two of whom are siblings), form the top-secret "Bankid" superhero team ("Bankid" is derived from the Japanese word "enban" - "saucer"), to fight the evil Bukimi Aliens ("bukimi" - Japanese for "weird," "eerie"), led by the mysterious Commander Guzare, who plots to invade Earth.
