Plot

Machine World (マシンワールド Mashin Wārudo?) is one of the 11 Braneworlds (ブレーンワールド Burēnwārudo?) other than our own, which is referred to as the Human World (ヒューマンワールド Hyūman Wārudo?). Machine World is home to giant vehicular beings called Engines who wage a war against the Gaiark, who desire to pollute their world. Losing, Gaiark's three Pollution Ministers escape to Earth, seeing the Human World as an easier location to create their ideal paradise. The six Engines manage to pursue them, selecting five humans to become their partners, the Go-Ongers. The team are later joined by the Go-On Wings and their Wing Engines, as well as the Ancient Engines. Together they battle the Gaiark and other evil villains from other Braneworlds.

Episodes

The episodes this season are referred as "GP", which is short for "Grand Prix" (グランプリ Guran Puri?) akin to the name of every major race on the Formula 1 circuit. The titles are all made of two Japanese words that are linked, either with two words combined by the Japanese connector character "no" or by a subject word that is modified by the previous word. However, unlike other seasons which use a similar title structure (such as Gingaman or Boukenger), the first word is always written in Hiragana or Kanji, while the second word, alongside the "no" when used, is always written in Katakana.

It is the first Super Sentai theme song single to ever make it onto the Oricon charts' top ten list, reaching #4 on the weekly singles chart by selling 22,000 records in its first week.[7] It had started out at #3 on the daily singles chart on its first day of sale, March 19, 2008, peaking at #2 on March 20, 2008. It had remained in the top 20 of the weekly charts for four weeks, and became the #113 top selling single on the Oricon's yearly rankings. As part of a Kodomo no Hi report, the Oricon listed "Engine Sentai Go-onger" as the #1 tokusatsu hero karaoke request, ahead of songs such as AAA DEN-O form's "Climax Jump" for Kamen Rider Den-O and V6's "TAKE ME HIGHER" for Ultraman Tiga.[8]

A final album was released for Go-onger on March 18, 2009, which included all of the character songs in the series, including versions of "G3 Princess Rap" performed as a group and by each individual member, "Smile×Smile" performed by Rina Aizawa, "Yume no Tsubasa" (夢の翼?

Notes

  • Go-Onger is very similar to Choujuu Sentai Liveman; particularly with the first three Rangers being Red, Blue, and Yellow and the two that join the team being Green and Black respectively.
    • It should be noted that there is a bird-themed Red in both teams.
    • Both teams use some mechs which are a mix of animal & vehicle motifs.
  • The Engines in Soul form is created by Toei Animation.
  • "Enjin" (炎神?) literally translates as "Flame God." The logo for the series uses the English word "Engine" in the title instead of the romanization of the kanji as "Enjin."
  • "Go-Onger" (ゴーオンジャー Gōonjā?) is a portmanteau of the Japanese words for "thunderous sound" (轟音 gōon?) and "Ranger" (レンジャー Renjā?). It is also related to the English words "go on."
  • The "Mantan Gun" (マンタンガン Mantangan?) comes from the Japanese phrase for "full tank" (満タン mantan?).
  • "Bikkuri" (びっくり?) means "surprise," making Bikkurium the "element of surprise".
  • All members role call uses the word 'Kai' (in japanese) at the last syllable.
  • This is the 1st season where the name of the show starts with Go-. The second one is Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.
  • This is the first Sentai Season with two 6th Rangers, the first Sentai team to officially feature a female 6th ranger.

This is the first car-themed Sentai that has an official Sixth Ranger: The Go-On Wings team.

  • If you put each syllable of the rangers, you get ekorogisuto, which is ecologist.
