I don't like the jagged "teeth" across the chest, I don't like the helmets, I don't like anything about them. I particularly dislike the dinosaur heads printed on the upper left of the "sawtooth" area. It makes them look like they're wearing kids' pajamas.
They didn't design it for people like us in mind. Their primary audiences will is always Japanese school age kids and their parents.
But there have been many prior Ranger costume designs that were very aesthetically pleasing, or at least not ugly. These are an exception to that general rule. So that argument doesn't wash for me. It's nonsense to say that what's designed with children in mind can't appeal to adults as well, since there are many, many counterexamples.
