How it all began.
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A terrorist group that goes by the name of the Black Cross Army is turning Japan upside down. So the U.N. has assembled the EAGLE military unit who has selected five soldiers to form team Goranger. A super task force that has what it takes to take down Black Cross Army's legion of super powered freaks.

Created by Shotoro Ishimori, creator of Cyborg 009, Kamen Rider, 009-1, & Skull Man. Has brought a franchise to life, as if it weren't for this series, then there wouldn't of been a Super Sentai. If there was never a Super Sentai, there would never have been a Power Rangers.

The story for this series is great, even though it really shows it's age compared to the newer Sentai series. You'll along see some Ishimori references including the use of cyborgs. And it also shows where the Super Sentai elements originated from too.

I highly recommend it if you want to see the earliest of the Super Sentai series.
