Space Sheriffs

The three Space Sheriffs, Sharivan, Gavan, and Shaider.

The Space Sheriff Series (宇宙刑事シリーズ Uchū Keiji Shirīzu?), also known as the Space Sheriff Trilogy, is the term used to collectively refer to the first three Metal Hero Series. The three seasons were directed by Hattori Kazuyasu and Yoshiaki Kobayashi, and were named Uchuu Keiji Gavan (宇宙刑事ギャバン Uchū Keiji Gyaban?, 1982-83), Uchuu Keiji Sharivan (宇宙刑事シャリバン Uchū Keiji Shariban?, 1983-84) and Uchuu Keiji Shaider (宇宙刑事シャイダー Uchū Keiji Shaidā?). This series helped the Metal Heroes genre to grow popular in Japan in the '80s. The Space Sheriff trilogy was quickly exported in European countries, such as France since 1982 (the series was renamed X-OR), Asia (including Indonesia, Malaysia and most notably Philippines) and Latin America (Brazil).
