If you grew up in the 80’s, you definitely know this superhhero. Shaider (Space Sheriff Shaider) was a popular Japanese live action series that I used to watch when I was a kid. I think I was in 2nd grade when it aired on TV (Channel 13). This was one of my favorite TV shows aside from Voltes V, Voltron and BIOMAN..
Shaider, who was known as Alexis here, was an Archaeologist-turned-Space Sheriff. He was destined to save Earth from Fuuma with the help of the beautiful Annie, her classmate and best friend. Do you still remember that Shigi-Shigi song whenever Fuuma Lei-Ar is around? That’s a classic piece of song and it is still recognized since it first aired a decade ago. It’s so timeless in fact, I have it as a ring tone on my cell phone. And the time space warp! Oh, how I hated it. I get dizzy whenever the ugly beasts escapes into the Time Space Warp.
Alexis, is usually seen patroling the streets with his blue Suzuki motorcycle, while Annie usually drives a yellow Mazda RX-7 FB to patrol the streets or arrive at the scene of a battle. I love that car! I’ve also seen that same car in every ‘Fast and the Furious’ films and in some computer games.
If you’d like to buy a Mazda car, be sure to check out the hundreds of New Mazda Manchester NH available in the Manchester NH area! No matter what model of new or used Mazda you want – a luxury sedan, a new or used Mazda 3, Mazda CX7, world-class Mazda RX-8 etc. – they have it! Whether it’s for you, your family, business or pleasure, a Mazda car is perfect choice.
Ok, now back to Shaider, I’ve always thought the Annie and Shaider would end up together. It’s just too bad things didn’t turn out to be great for them. I heard in the news that the lead actor died of cancer last 2001 and Annie turned out to be, what else, a sexy star!
