J.A.K.Q. vs Goranger.jpg

Himitsu Sentai Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai teams.

Status: Partially Found


Premiering in 1975, Himitsu Sentai Gorenger is the first entry within the Japanese 'Super Sentai' franchise, with J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai being the second. The series is most notoriously known overseas as the source material for Saban's Power Rangers franchise, an Americanization of the series. In 1978, an English dub of J.A.K.Q. was produced for the Philippines, titled Lucky Aces.[1] Later in 1979, an English dub of Gorenger, titled Star Rangers aired.[1] Not much is known about the origins of the two dubs, but both were broadcasted on the Filipino channel RPN-9.

Differences From Original

Not much was changed in the adaptation (at least for Gorenger), the only major difference was the renaming of the shows and the changing of Ranger designations. In Gorenger, Akaranger (Red) is Star 1, Aoranger (Blue) is Star 2, Kiranger (Yellow) is Star 3, Momoranger (Pink) is Star 4, and Midoranger (Green) is Star 5. It is unknown if the designations were changed to J.A.K.Q., however, it is most unlikely due to their names already being in English.

Availability

Nothing from Lucky Aces has resurfaced, Gorenger on the other hand, has had very few episodes come up. Episodes 1-12 (minus episode 3) are on MySpleen, a private torrenting site. Episode 1 can also be found through a download link on MEGA. Clips of episode 1 and an unknown episode are on YouTube, it is possible that more episodes are in the hands of hardcore Super Sentai fans.
