"Gaku... FiveRed!"
―FiveRed's roll call[src]

Gaku Hoshikawa (星川 学 Hoshikawa Gaku) is FiveRed (ファイブレッド Faibu Reddo) of the Fivemen.



Gaku at age 7

At 27 years old (48 in Gokaiger), he is the eldest and leader of the team. A Science teacher skilled in kendo, Gaku was 7 at the time of the Zone's attack on Sidon. Calm and responsible, he had the task of raising his four siblings along with Arthur G6, making him not just a big brother but also a leader and a parental figure.

Out of fear, fired a gun at Garoa's face, scarring him, creating a rivalry. Even though he is a reliable and brave leader, he has a major weakness with the supernatural.

In some episodes, Gaku is frequently the victim from the enemies' attack when he, Ken and Fumiya are hit from Gagaagin's hypnotic control at the time they are barging the male's public bath house, he is almost stabbed by his younger brother Fumiya who is under mind control of Kumorugin's spider while he was asleep before he manages to get the mind controlled spider on his brother's head and stabs it with a small knife to make Fumiya return to normal while being restrained by Ken, Kazumi and Remi and finally being critically injured by Chevalier as FiveRed due to the effects of Wanikaerugin's power to freeze time leading him to fell into the edge below and his death which forces his sister Kazumi to aid Wanikaerugin to hurt her siblings and to fool Wanikaerugin into using its time ability in reverse where he was still alive when Chevalier ambushes them.

In Episode 40, Gaku is revealed to be the master in the art of Kendo when he trains his kendo students as one of his students, Manabu aspires to become like him as a kendo master and a fighter. Gaku also sacrifices his life by injuring his right shoulder blade by Manabu who is possessed by the Majin Sword in order to regain control of his student. Gaku is also strict as seen in the end of the episode where he mildly slaps Fumiya's butt with his kendo stick to keep train his students properly.

Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai

FiveRed in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai.

FiveRed is among the Sentai warriors seen in clips when Yuusuke Amamiya (Red Falcon) lectured Gaku Washio (GaoYellow) about the past Sentai sword experts, showing him that the true sword wasn't the sharpest, but the one that feeds on courage.

Led by his Liveman predecessor Red Falcon, he appeared as one of 24 previous Red Rangers in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai together with fellow Red Rangers from his predecessors Akarenger to Red Turbo to his successors from Red Hawk to TimeRed.

Legend War

Years later, Gaku fought alongside not only his own team, but every single Sentai Ranger in existence, against the Empire of Zangyack when it attacked the Earth in the Great Legend War. After fighting against hundreds of Gormin and their Zgormin commanders. Kaijou noticed the fleet moving towards them, he gathered all the Rangers together and gave them the order to sacrifice their powers to wipe out the first invasion's armada. The FiveRed powers are later used by Captain Marvelous via the Ranger Keys.

Farewell Space Pirates

After the defeat of Ackdos Gill, Captain Marvelous returned all the Ranger Keys to the former Sentai heroes. It is assumed Gaku received his key alongside his younger sister Remi, allowing for them to utilize their abilities once again. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates

Super Hero Taisen

The Fivemen, alongside the Livemen, Goggle V, Maskmen, and Jetmen, emerge through a dimensional wall.

Gaku, alongside his team, among the majority of the Super Sentai heroes, was caught up in the "Super Hero Taisen" incident which eventually resulted in the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders joining forces to defeat both Dai-Zangyack and Dai-Shocker.

Zyuohger vs. Ninninger

FiveRed among the 38 Red warriors.

The first 38 Sentai projected into Wild Tousai Shuriken King.

FiveRed appeared as part of a conference of the first 38 Reds led by Red Falcon, whom addressed the Ninningers and Zyuohgers as the greater Super Sentai pantheon intervened to save them from defeat at the hands of the titanic Gillmarda. Empowering the Combination Nin Shuriken to form Wild Tousai Shuriken King, the first 38 Super Sentai further imbued their successors with the power to perform the Zyuoh Ninnin Super Sentai Burst, destroying Gillmarda with the combined power of all 40 Super Sentai.

Super Sentai Strongest Battle

Gaku joined the Super Sentai Strongest Battle as a member of Brain Team, where he partnered with TimeGreen in the first round of the competition and fought against Speed Team and won the match. However, his team was eliminated either after losing the second round against the Gunman Team or the third round against the Swordsman Team.

Though he was seemingly erased alongside his team as a result of Asmodeus’ manipulations, he and, presumably, his corresponding team were restored back into existence once Touma Kamiyama had helped Shotaro regained his passion in drawing out the superheroes that he wants to draw out.

During the climatic final battle itself, he can be seen fighting alongside Kamen Rider Super-1, Red Flash, Kamen Rider Fourze and Shishi Red.

Legend Sentai Devices

The FiveRed Ranger Key.

The FiveRed Ranger Key (ファイブレッドレンジャーキー Faibu Reddo Renjā Kī) is Gaku Hoshikawa's personal Ranger Key and what became of his powers after he along with the rest of the 34 Super Sentai sacrificed their powers to end the Great Legend War.

This key along with the majority of the Ranger Keys were collected by the Red Pirates and later used by the Gokaigers. The FiveRed Ranger Key was mainly used by Captain Marvelous (Gokai Red), who used it to fight as FiveRed. It was also used by Don Dogoier and Gai Ikari on one occasion each.

The Fiveman keys, along with all the Ranger Keys of the first 33 Super Sentai, were briefly taken by the Black Cross King and turned into Ranger puppets that were fought by the Gokaigers and the Goseigers. The Fiveman keys were defeated by Super Gosei Yellow. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Gokaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Hero Great Battle

After Zangyack were finally defeated, the Gokaigers gave the Ranger Keys back to their rightful owners. Gaku received his key and became FiveRed once more. Tvicon.png TV STORY-Final Ep.: Farewell Space Pirates
