Himitsu Sentai Gorenger (秘密戦隊ゴレンジャー Himitsu Sentai Gorenjā, translated as Secret Squadron FiveRangers) is a Japanese tokusatsu superhero television series. Gorenger was the first in the long-running Super Sentai series of tokusatsu programs (although the series wouldn't be called by that specific name until the release of Battle Fever J). Himitsu Sentai Gorenger was created by Shotaro Ishinomori, and was broadcast on NET (now TV Asahi) from April 5, 1975 to March 26, 1977, with a total of 84 episodes, making this the longest Sentai series.

The average ratings of the series was 16.1%.[1]


As a Super Sentai

The name "Super Sentai" was first introduced in the 1981 series Taiyo Sentai Sun Vulcan. The earliest known usage of the term was in the Super Sentai Zukan (スーパー戦隊図鑑 Sūpā Sentai Zukan) published by Tokuma Shoten in 1981, which included Goranger and J.A.K.Q. as the first two entries of the Super Sentai series.[2] Though it was not an official classification at that time, it was regarded as the majority opinion amongst publishers, with many magazines depicting Akarenger and Spade Ace in photographs together with the rest of the Red Warriors. However, this classification was not unanimously agreed upon, with a minority of publications choosing to denote Battle Fever J as the first Super Sentai season. It should be noted that during this time, Toei had also produced various media which included Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. as the first two Sentai; the song Super Sentai Banbaraban that was released during the time of Goggle V used both Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. in the medley (alongside Space Sheriff Gavan). The 10 Great Super Sentai Best Collection video tape released at the time of Choushinsei Flashman included video material from all of the Super Sentai seasons back then, including Gorenger's and J.A.K.Q.'s.

By the time of Choushinsei Flashman, Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. were still recognized by the majority as part of the Super Sentai series, with Flashman being regarded as the tenth season, though a minority of publications had continued to treat Battle Fever J as the first season. However, in 1988, Choujuu Sentai Liveman was labelled as celebrating the 10th anniversary of the franchise, with Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. officially excluded from the franchise lineup. In episode 0 of the 1989 series Turboranger, when it honored the past ten Super Sentai series, Battle Fever J was listed as the first Sentai. It is not known why this change was made.

In 1993, during the run of Gosei Sentai Dairanger, the term Super Century All Sentai (超世紀全戦隊 Chō Seiki Zen Sentai) was coined as an umbrella term to represent the then-series of shows recognized as "Super Sentai", as well as the two Ishinomori-produced Sentai shows. In 1995, Chouriki Sentai Ohranger celebrated the 20th anniversary of the umbrella Sentai Series (戦隊シリーズ Sentai Shirīzu) as a whole, making it the first and only anniversary to count the number of years since the airing of Gorenger. Throughout this period, various forms of media would refer to the series as either Sentai Series or Sentai Hero (戦隊ヒーロー Sentai Hīrō) to account for the inclusion of the two Ishinomori-produced Sentai shows.

Finally, during the run of Mirai Sentai Timeranger in 2000, the Sentai Series was officially rebranded as the Super Sentai Series (スーパー戦隊シリーズ Sūpā Sentai Shirīzu), with Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. given official recognition as "Super Sentai", as shown during episode 51 of Timeranger, which showed a compilation of the first 24 Super Sentai, as well as a preview of the then-upcoming 25th Super Sentai, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger.

Shin Himitsu Sentai Gorenger Gokko manga

Ishinomori released a retelling of the series as a manga which was published in the Weekly Shōnen Sunday magazine from May 4, 1975 to August 17, 1975. In this continuity, the Gorengers were all teenagers, with Tsuyoshi's father as the head of EAGLE's Kanto branch and a martial arts teacher who gave his son the Akarenger outfit before he was murdered by the Black Cross, leading his son to become Akarenger and recruit the other children to become the Gorengers and avenge his father's death.


In the Philippines, Gorenger was released as Star Rangers (not to be confused with the Indonesian dub of Gosei Sentai Dairanger) between 1978 and 1979 on Saturday afternoon on RPN-9. In this version, aside from their color designations, the Gorengers also had numeric designations, in order of their introduction to the enemy prior to battle: AkaRanger = Star 1, AoRanger = Star 2, KiRanger = Star 3, Momo Ranger = Star 4, and Mido Ranger = Star 5.


A powerful terrorist organization known as the Black Cross Army (黒十字軍 Kuro Jūjigun) threatens to destroy the Earth, with only the defense organization EAGLE (EArth Guard LEague) (国際的平和組織イーグル Kokusaiteki Heiwa Soushiki Īguru) able to oppose them. In retaliation, Black Cross Army destroys multiple EAGLE headquarters across Japan, killing all but five people. Now, these five remaining EAGLE members are called to form a secret, powerful team known as Gorenger, the only force left that has a chance to stop the Black Cross Army and their evil leader, Black Cross Führer.[3]

Main article: Gorenger (Toyline)


  • Gorenger started the trend where a female Sentai Ranger had her given name be in katakana format and her surname be in kanji, a convention that has been used by most Super Sentai series.
  • A line of figures were planned; however, only Akarenger and Momorenger were made. Aka's depicted him fighting Gold Mask, whereas Momo's showed her victorious over a foe.
  • Gorenger holds a TV show rating of 16.1%, which holds the highest ratings of a Sentai show ever. [1]
  • Gorenger is the longest Sentai series with a total of 84 episodes.
  • This series was originally called Red-1, and even though it would have been a team show, it would have featured the titular Red-1 as the main hero.[4]. The "Red-1" name will be later used for the Red hero in Bioman.
  • It is the only Sentai to be referred to as "Renger" instead of "Ranger".
  • It is the only Sentai show to have the Ranger name logo in the title to be colored black, as opposed to red, orange, or yellow.
  • Despite the series lacking a Power Rangers counterpart, the Gorengers minus Akarenger appear in the Power Rangers Action Card Game.[5] [6]
  • Gorenger is the first Sentai show to have been broadcast in the United States:
    • Gorenger first had been broadcast in Hawaii on Honolulu's KIKU channel with English subtitles from 1975 and throughout 1976. The actors made personal appearances to promote the series.
    • It was broadcast in California on Sacramento's KMUV-TV in 1976 and in San Francisco's KEMO-TV in 1977.
  • Gorenger has been dubbed into three different languages:
    • Philippines - Star Rangers (aired on RPN in 1979)
    • South Korea - Power Rangers FiveRangers (in Power Rangers Captain Force).
    • Hong Kong - 秘密戰隊五勇士 (aired on CTV in 1978)
  • Gorenger are parodied in the Japanese commercial of Kirin Amino Supli C, but their costume designs are different than the original ones especially most of their helmets that exposed the lower half of his face which is similar to Riderman. They consists of Red Taishi-Boo (Body Fat), Blue Hero-Hero (Starvation), Yellow Uwano-Sora (Day Dreaming), Pink Oh-Hada (Hot Chick), And Green Non-Bee (Drunk).
