Shotaro's farewell to Super Sentai.
29 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A terrorist group called "Crime" led by Iron Claw have an evil scheme to turn Japan upside down by increasing the crime rate with cyborgs, mafias, and robots.

Commander Joker form a team of four young heroes, whom all agreed to receive cyborg enhancements to become team J.A.K.Q. All four represent four individual cards of a deck of playing cards.

While being the shortest Super Sentai series, it had some memorable characters that made Goranger well liked. The introduction of Big One was one of the best moments of the entire series. It was said to have lasted longer, but it cut short due to either low ratings or the sudden change in the plot.

Shotaro Isimori never became involved with another Super Sentai series ever again. The one that aired after this one was the first of it's kind to not have Shotaro Ishimori trademarks.

Compared to the other Super Sentai series, this one is fairly easy to watch in less than a week compared to the 50 some episode Sentai series.

Those who love Shotaro Ishimori's work will likely enjoy this show.
