Before Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, There Was Super Sentai! See where the worldwide phenomenon began with the original Japanese series that inspired the Power Rangers franchise!
The Grand Witch Grandiene has been waiting for the day of resurrection: the day when the planets are in alignment, so that her children can descend to the Earth and turn it into a realm of darkness! Ten years prior, Professor Tatsumi of the Tatsumi Disaster Prevention Institute had predicted this event, but nobody believed him.
He secretly developed and constructed the Rescue System. Now, Professor Tatsumi appears again to give the means to save the world...and the heroic Kyuukyuu Sentai GoGoFive team springs into action! Includes All 50 Episodes!
Last week we had the heads-up
that the Japanese program which became the USA series Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue
would get a DVD release in North America this spring as Super Sentai GoGoFive: The Complete Series
. At the time, we explained that Amazon.com's pre-order listing showed a release date of April 24th
, but that Shout! Factory DVD producer Brian Ward was posting a tweet explaining that the date might not be finalized yet.
Now Shout! Factory's online store has added a pre-order listing for the 8-DVD set of Super Sentai GoGoFive: The Complete Series
, and it confirms the April 24th release date. Well, confirms it for now...the studio will always reserve the right to change a street date if necessary. Like previous Super Sentai
DVD releases from Shout!, it will come with the original Japanese language audio track, and English subtitles. The cost is confirmed as $59.97 SRP, and both Amazon's and Shout!'s listings now include package art, seen below. Our thanks to readers Kevin Keene and Jacob Hoppis for being the first to email us about this update!
