Top Seven Best Metal Hero Ending Theme Songs

Hello! Welcome to another of my Top Seven Lists. This is the series of posts known to send fanboys in a tizzy because I have opinions that are different from their own. This time I intend to take on a more benign topic, but you never know who may have beef over what I have to say about Metal Hero Ending songs.

Following the same metric that I used way back in my 2012 list of favorite Metal Hero Opening Theme songs, I will be counting themes from the, ummm, less popular Kabutack and Robotack series. They *are* Metal Hero shows despite what some will tell you. Who knows...maybe even one of those songs may make the actual list this time...

It's been quite some time since I've done one of these standalone Top Seven posts. Let's dive in!


07. Ii janai [Tetsuwan Tantei Robotack, ED 2]

I promise...this will likely be the only divisive song on the list.

I'm a sucker for this type of song. Maybe it's a little bit stupid (the artist being "Robotack All Stars" should be a pretty big warning), but I think it has an excellent groove with some decent composition. If you're a CD Single collector like me, you were treated to a great Karaoke version of this song as well as the fan-flippin-tastic GET HIGH! by Kotetsu Kyodai (Hironobu Kageyama & Masaaki Endo).


06. Kyo no ore kara ashita no kimi e [Tokkei Winspector]

When I thought up the idea for this list I really didn't think I would be including any of the ending songs from the Rescue Police Series shows (Winspector, Solbrain, Exceedraft). You know what, though? I actually like this one. It's a bit tacky, but with that out-of-control bass and Takayuki Miyauchi's excellent vocals, I just had to include it. It's certainly the best from the three shows.


05. Chikyuu Koko [Juko B-Fighter]

This one is on the slow side, but is an undeniably good song. Shinichi Ishihara may be known better for literally every other fast-paced Tokusatsu song he's done, but he certainly has the chops to make an otherwise ho-hum ballad interesting. That isn't to say the music isn't good. I thoroughly enjoy this one.


04. Hoshizora no Message [Uchuu Keiji Gavan]

The original! Much like the previous song, this one is a ballad. A disco ballad. It has a little bit of legs to it and I genuinely think may be the song that inspired the Gingaman ending song Hadashi no Kokoro de. Considering Gingaman (shameless plug to Part 1 & Part 2 of my series write-ups) is full of all kinds of intentional throw-backs, it makes sense. Just listen to both back-to-back and you may see what I'm on about.

Who doesn't love the velvety smooth vocals of a younger Akira Kushida?


03. Ginga Ookami Juspion [Kyojuu Tokusou Juspion]

This song and Fighting Pose, Flashman! do something that very few ending songs can accomplish--they bookend the opening theme song perrrrrfectly. The same energy is there, the two songs are undeniably from the same series, and yet it has that ending song flavor.

The opening theme song to Juspion may not be my favorite...hell, it didn't even show up on my original Top 7. I really dig both theme songs as a set, though. Hey, it even has an "English Version". "Wolf In Space" just sounds so......literal.


02. Kesho da! Spielban [Jikuu Senshi Spielban, ED 2]

An Ichiro Mizuki belter.

Everything about this one is perfect. The fact that is replaced the snorer of song that ended the first ten episodes certainly helps elevate it. It also lines up pretty good with the opening theme song with a similar base note. While it doesn't quite have the "ending song" feel that Ginga Ookami Juspion has, it's a better song in my book.


01. Time Limit [Chojinki Metalder]

Another Ichiro Mizuki belter!

While the opening song to this series is very good in it's incredibly unique way, the more standardized ending song is where it's at. Even if the song never gets any faster as it progresses, there is a certain frantic energy to it. It could be that the title is TIME LIMIT, but I digress.

I really challenge you to listen to this song and not let it completely take over. An earworm isn't so bad when it's a great song like this.


Thank you for swinging by and checking out my latest Top Seven List. This one was pretty difficult as there really aren't any truly terrible Metal Hero ending songs. Except maybe Kabutack's ending song...

This post is my little buffer before I get into my look at GoGo Five. Look forward to seeing that later in the month. In the meantime, be sure to check out my recent look at Gingaman in Part 1 & Part 2!

Take care!
