Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan THE MOVIE Subbed: So… AWESOME! And a wee bit shiny! ;)

Wow, this movie came out a lot sooner than expected, and that’s a good thing. It’s Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger VS. Uchuu Keiji Gavan THE MOVIE subbed! In this, the Go-Kaigers encounter the famous Space Sheriff, only to be arrested(!). But they soon discover that it was all part of a ploy to expose a Zangyack infiltration into the Space Police, led by Ashrada, relative of Makuu Space Mafia Boss Don Horror, who has plans of his own. Using Gavan Bootleg (the unholy combination of Zangyack and Space Police technology), Ashrada drags Gavan into Makuu Space, locking him up in Makuu Prison, the worst prison in the Universe. Now it’s up to the Go-Kaigers to rescue Gavan and stop Ashrada before he consumes the world into Makuu Space. Can they pull off this daring rescue and save the Earth in time? Check out the movie below to find out!:

Well, there might not have been a gigantic number of stuntmen in spandex costumes, but it was still COMPLETELY AWESOME!

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.51 (Finale) SUBBED: Goodbye, Go-Kaigers. See you in a month!

The sad day finally came Sunday. The Finale for Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger aired, and now what is perhaps one of the Greatest Super Sentai series is over. These will be dark days, at least until we can get a feel for Go-Buster. But you can always enjoy this subbed video of the finale:

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.51 Finale

My official series review: Greatest Toku Series EVER! Not just the Greatest Sentai series, or even the best Anniversary series, but it is, without a doubt, one of the most talked about and popular tokusatsu series in recent memory. With so many returning stars, epic scenes, and a cast and story that lived up to, and even reaffirmed, everything we love about Super Sentai, this series AND this cast are going to be remembered and talked about for years to come. Who knows, this may be the first Super Sentai series to live on in Den-O-style movie sequels for years to come. And that also includes merchandise, because the RangerKey gimmick is probably one of the best toy ideas PLEX and Toei Creative have ever come up with. Those mad basterds will probably be selling RangerKey sets and re-releasing Mobirates for the next ten years! And people will probably line up in troves to buy them!! Basically put, this might be the end of the series, but not the franchise, not by a long shot.

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship RAW

Hey, look what finally came out! It’s Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger THE MOVIE: The Flying Ghost Ship! In their first solo special, the Go-Kaigers encounter the titular Flying Ghost ship (from Space!), and decide to raid it, looking for a treasure called the God Eye, which can guide the owner to anything. The only problem: the ship’s Captain will do anything to protect the treasure, which includes trapping the Go-Kaigers and forcing them to fight several fallen enemies of past Sentais. And he even has his own Ghost Go-KaiOh! How will they get out of this one? Check out the movie below to find out!:

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.50 RAW: Decisions, decisions….

Hey, look, you can embed videos from Dailymotion now (without having an account)! It’s Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.50 RAW, and this time, after barely surviving a onslaught by the new Zangyack invasion fleet, they find themselves seriously considering using the Greatest Treasure in the Universe to destroy the Zangyack (ergo sacrificing the Grand Powers of the other 34 Sentais and erasing their influence from history), when they encounter people recovering from the attack, still spurred on by their faith in Super Sentais to help save the world. Also, it’s sort of an informal Zyuranger tribute episode, featuring the return of Mammoth Ranger Goushi, along with other familiar faces. The final battle is on the horizon. Let’s set sail! (I’m gonna miss these pirate puns…) Check out the episode below:

Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.49 SUB: Just too many distractions today….

First they find the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, and then Insarn unwittingly keeps them busy while an even larger than before invasion fleet is assembled? No wonder they just seem to be flailing around in this episode. Anyway, you can check out Kaizoku Sentai Go-Kaiger Ep.49 subbed below:

So, it’s round 2 of the Legend War, and this time Zangyack is coming out stronger than before! Will the Go-Kaigers be enough to finally defeat this new force? Or will they have to resort to using the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, and risk losing the 34 Grand Powers forever? I guess we’ll find out over the next two weeks!

Go-Kaiger Ultra-Post: Haden Ni Ikuze! Until the last episode!

Yes, this is it, the long awaited Ultra-Post for Go-Kaiger (and so we’re clear, I don’t care if their isn’t a hyphen between the “Go” and “Kaiger”, that’s just the way I spell it), and the over-all theme of this post is “the beginning of the end”, because we’re down to the last two episodes, with the finale (Ep.51) on February 19th. And while the series may be ending, the franchise is still in full swing, with both a leading role in Superhero Taisen, and new Go-Kaiger toys being released along with the upcoming Go-Buster toy line (and yes, that’s the official spelling for the new series, you’re welcome). And of course, we still have about a months worth of news to cover in a single post, so let’s get to it!

First off, let’s go over the newest episode summaries for the last three episodes, where  they have an all-out battle with Zangyack!:

Episode 50: Title- Kessen no Hi (Day of the Great Battle) Airs- 2/12/12 Summary-

Zangyack is advancing their final plans, which includes an all out attack on the Gokaiger, and the ultimate destruction of Earth! It has been revealed that the Greatest Treasure in the Universe can, and must, be used to wipeout Zangyack’s Great Fleet, completely. The Gokaiger are hesistant to do so, wondering what their compensation would be.

Episode 51 (Final Episode): Title- Sayonara Uchuu Kaizoku (Goodbye Space Pirates) Airs- 2/19/12 Summary-

The Gokaiger engage in a life-or-death struggle against the Zangyack. What will the Gokaiger do with the Super Sentai’s 34 Great Powers? One after the other, strong enemies gather to stand in the Gokaiger’s way….

And we also have the title of the last two episodes, which are:

  • Episode 50: The Day of Battle
  • Episode 51: Farewell Space Pirates

And now for some new scans, which feature the final EPIC fight between Basco and Go-KaiRed, the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, the second Legend War, and much more!:

These scans below come from the first official Volume of the Go-Kaiger RangerKey Book:

 How is the book cover the smallest scan?

Anyway, This is book one, as there will be future volumes to come out with future RangerKey releases, such as these seen here:

Yep, those are SIX coming RangerKey sets, for Hurricanger, Boukenger, Dekaranger, Gekiranger, Kamen Rider OOO, and a 2nd set for Go-Buster, which features the 4th & 5th Go-Busters and the new BuddyRoid (which I will cover in a separate post).

Now let’s move on to some confirmed and rumored returning actor appearances for these last three episodes:

Yes, this already happened, but it’s so cool it’s just worth going over. for Ep.49 (The Greatest Trasure in the Universe, 2/5) we had a 5-in-1 tribute episode for SunVulcan, Changeman, Flashman, Maskman, and Fiveman. And for this tribute episodes, we had the following returning actors:

Takayuki Godai (Takayuki Hiba/Vul Eagle II), Kazuoki Takahashi (Shou Hayate/Change Gryphon), Kihachiro Uemura (Dai/Green Flash), Issei Hirota (Akira/Blue Mask), and Ryou Narushima (Remi Hoshikawa/Five Yellow).

For Ep.50 (The Day of The Deciding Battle, 2/12), we have:

Also, it looks like the kid from Ep.3 will be returning as well, for what reason is hard to say.

And confirmed to appear in the final episode (Ep.51 Farewell Space Pirates, 2/19):

Naoya Makoto, who played Tsuyoshi Kaijo/AkaRanger in Goranger, and who also appeared in the movie Go-Kaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Heroes. And we also have…

Atsushi Harada, who played Shou Tatsumi/GoGreen of GoGoV. He confirmed his appearance in the episode via Twitter.

Other rumored appearances include Yumi Sugimoto, who played Miu Sutou/Go-OnSilver in Go-Onger, and Keiya Asakura, who played Yohei Hama/BlueTurbo in Turboranger.

And finally, we end this post with some news and info on Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan.

First, here’s a full trailer for the movie:

Next, we have a full summary for the movie:

The movie opens with the Gokai Galleon being attacked by Gavan’s ship. It’s a really nice scene that makes use of the added budget. Gai’s reaction when he realizes that it’s Gavan is priceless.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Gavan introduces himself and the Gokaigers protest that they were pretty much given the blessing of Dekaranger crew, but Gavan remains silent before kicking their five collective asses, arresting them, and delivering them to his superior.
Said superior turns out to be Zangyack in disguise, introduces Gavan Bootleg, and immediately tries to execute the pirates. Before they can, Gavan releases them and returns their changers. There’s a short-ish fight before the Gojyudrill makes its entrance and rescues the crew. Gavan, however, is captured and transported to the worst prison in the universe.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Back on the Galleon, Marvelous reveals that Gavan saved his life ten years ago, basically by giving him the courage to jump from a platform that was about to explode.
The stroll down memory lane is interrupted by Basco. He tells them about the space prison that Gavan is being held at, knowing that they’ll go off to rescue him and leave the Galleon unguarded. He leaves them alone to figure out how they’re going to get to the prison to rescue Gavan.
Daigorou Oume, Shiro Akebono This is interrupted when Gavan comes walking down a path while talking to a giant Panda. Gai is quick to point out that it’s not Gavan, but Battle Kenya. About five seconds later, Denji Blue walks over. Luka thinks they both look like Gavan, but Gai denies it. Still, they get the idea to use the Battle Kenya and Denji Blue keys to open up a doorway to the space prison where Gavan is being held.
Once they break into the prison, they come across Jealoushito and some of the previous Super Sentai enemies. Having been in prison for awhile, they are a kind of horny and begin to lay flattery on Joe, Luka, Don, and Ahim.
Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Back on Earth, Basco is about to get aboard the unguarded Gokai Galleon, but is stopped by the Go-Busters team. He thinks they’re impostors, but they tell him that they’re the 36th and newest Super Sentai team, the Go-Busters. They fight Basco to a stalemate, but since Sally was distracted, they’re able to get the upper hand.
In the space prison, the Gokaigers free the inmates after encountering a large group of Gormin. Gai and Joe hold them off while the others go off to find Gavan, who is being tortured by Gavan Bootleg. The Zangyack use the portal technology to stall them.
Don Dogoier with Kaze no Shizuka and Kegaleshia Thanks to the portals, doors in the space prison now lead to other places in the universe. Luka and Doc wind up in Europe fighting an army made up of the family of the Big Brother/Little Brother Zangyak. Ahim winds up fighting another Zangyak general near an ocean.
Marvelous alone makes it through to the room where Gavan is being held. He fights Gavan bootleg and, using a ricochet technique that really need to be seen to be believed, frees Gavan, reversing the roles they were in ten years ago.
The split up team then breaks reality by shooting out the ground beneath their respective feet, reunite in the basement of the space prison, and use a Silver Charged rising strike through the “portals” that takes out most of the Zangyack generals and returns everyone to Earth. It’s hard to convey just how awesome this was.
Gavan Bootleg Back on Earth, Gavan fights Gavan bootleg while the Gokaigers fight the Zangyack general. They use an all pink change, an all white change, and an all red change. Gavan bootleg is destroyed after being stabbed and sliced in half while an exploded car burns in the background.
Once the Zangyack general is defeated, he grows in size and has telekentic powers that he uses to shuffle buildings into GoJyuGokaiOh. Machfalcon joins the party and forms Kanzen GokaiOh, which then surfs around on the back of Gavan’s dragon.
Even THAT isn’t quite enough to put away the general, so Marvelous and Gavan do a combined Final Wave attack while standing on the head of the dragon (that is also carrying Kanzen GokaiOh). The combined Final Wave and GokaiOh attacks finally put away the general.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Afterwards, Gavan tells Marvelous that he’s happy to see what he’s become. Not just a pirate, but a good man. The former Battle Kenya and Denji Blue meet up with the crew. The Gokaigers return their respective keys to them and all transform. We see Gavan pose with Denji Blue and Battle Kenya while Gai flips out and asks for their autographs.

And for some very exciting news: it debuted at #2 at the Box Office, bringing in 159,227 people and grossing 160,750,000 Yen (2.06 million USD) in it’s opening weekend. So Congrats to them on that!

And with that, this post is finally finished! Do I expect this to be one of the last posts I do for Go-Kaiger? Not by a long shot! Especially since there’s still two episodes left, and they’ll also be in the upcoming Kamen Rider X Super Sentai: Superhero Taisen movie this Spring. Plus, they’re just too popular to completely let go of, so who knows what the future may bring for our beloved Space Pirates. But for now, just look forward to the finale!
