Counting on You! Turboranger (10大戦隊集合! 頼むぞ! ターボレンジャー Tanomu zo! Tāborenjā?) is the first episode of Kousoku Sentai Turboranger. It was a special episode that introduced Kousoku Sentai Turboranger and celebrated the 10th anniversary of Super Sentai with a teamup of the previous 10 Super Sentai. Himitsu Sentai Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai were not included, this was because at the time of the show's debut, Toei had the Super Sentai series begin with Battle Fever J. However, when Toei marketed Chouriki Sentai Ohranger as the 19th anniversary of the Super Sentai series, Toei retroactively included Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. as part of the Super Sentai series.

Synopsis

When the Hundred Boma Tribes begins an assault on Earth, the Turboranger face off with them with the support of their ten previous Sentai allies!

Cast

Notes

  • Viewership: 12.2%
  • At the time of this episode, the Super Sentai franchise was acknowledged as starting from Battle Fever J up to Choujuu Sentai Liveman. By the 20th anniversary of Gorenger in 1995, both it and J.A.K.Q. were made permanently part of the franchise with the anniversary celebrated by Chouriki Sentai Ohranger.
  • A special eyecatch is used for this special. The eyecatch before the break shows Red Turbo and the past 10 Red Rangers posing. After the break, the eyecatch features Pink Turbo and all the heroines of the past 10 series posing.
  • The footage used for Bioman ends up using clips that ultimately show both Yellow4; the original Mika Koizumi and her replacement Jun Yabuki. This is the only compilation with multiple Sentai that show both Yellow Fours from Bioman.
  • Instead of the ending, the Turboranger preview re-airs, this time using series ending Zigzag Seishun Road as the background music and with new clips including the teacher, Misa Yamaguchi, before a preview for the actual first episode next time.
  • This episode was originally to air on February 18th, 1989, but was pushed back one week due to the death of Hirohito, the emperor of Japan, in January.

Errors

  • VulEagle's visor appears to be shattered.
  • In the aerial shot of all the Sentai teams, when the episode starts the camera shifts to the left a bit.
  • In the shot of Bioman, Yellow4 does not do her pose completely, until right before the clip cut to Changeman.
  • When the 10 previous Sentai teams appear, they stop beyond the cliff, but in the next scene start running again.
