Himitsu Sentai Gorenger

It all began somewhere, nobody expected what translated to English as Secret Squadron GoRanger to become the television phenomenon it became. Retranslated and remade into many languages, it took the English speaking world almost twenty years to catch up! What became known to the English speaking world as Power Rangers – first had life breathed into it by Japanese TV writer and creator Shotaro Ishinomori.  The vision became known as broadcast as Himitsu Sentai Gorenger – a Japanese tokusatsu superhero television series that is regulary reborn and shows now signs of slowing down.

Himitsu Sentai Gorenger began airing on NET (now TV Asahi) from April 5, 1975, the week following the finale of Kamen Rider Amazon, to March 26, 1977, the series had a total of 84 episodes. The title Toei gives this series for international distribution is Five Rangers.

The story begins, as all do, with world peace being threatened by the emergence of a terrorist group called the Black Cross Army, a secret espionage organization known as EAGLE is formed in Japan to combat the threat. The Black Cross Army, fearful of the threat against them, decides to launch a surprise attack against EAGLE.

Across Japan, the Black Cross Army sends its five most dangerous operatives to destroy each EAGLE branch, killing everyone except for five young agents who miraculously survive. The agents are summoned to the snack shop “Gon” by Gonpachi Edogawa, EAGLE’s commander, and enter a secret command center hidden underneath. The five are recruited by Edogawa to become the Secret Squadron Gorenger, the world’s best chance against the forces of the Black Cross Army, and are given form-fitting electronic battlesuits which empower them with superhuman strength & speed. The five then dedicate themselves to stopping the Black Cross Army and its sinister leader, Black Cross Führer.
