I can say that GoGo V is the first Sentai series I watched full by Eng-sub (because I’m Vietnamese). May be its plot isn’t as good as PR Lightspeed Rescue (villains are boring and some episodes made me want to sleep because there’s no development of story and characters). However, Lightspeed Rescue doesn’t have the way building characters development, GoGo V did well. I love every members of Tatsumi family (excluding Shou because there’s nothing special about him). This topic, family, is better than Magiranger which most of Sentai fans called it is the masterpiece of family of Sentai. But that isn’t true because Magiranger just shown us the problems, there’s no the way to solve them. GoGo V did. Each episode is each powerful story about life, the courage, the love of family, the maturation. Sometime one member had the disvantage, their brothers/sister solved it. That’s why I prefer GoGo V than Magiranger.
That’s just my general view about plot. Here are more details:
+Matoi Tatsumi/GoRed: You know, Matoi used to be my least favorite GoGo V ranger in few first episodes because of his personality, too impatient. However, by the time, I realized how cool he really is. As the leader of GoGo V and the eldest member of Tatsumi family, he must take care of his brothers and sister, he taught them about the courage and the solutions to solve their problem. Every Sentai need him.
+Nagare Tatsumi/GoBlue: He looks like the mastermind. Like his father, he is smart and good in technology. He made plans before fighting and created weapons. However, almost his episodes are normal so he is little part in my heart.
+Shou Tatsumi/Go Green: He’s too normal and there is no his characters development in his episodes. He is my least favorite ranger in series.
+Daimon Tatsumi/Go Yellow: Before I watched GoGo V, I saw him in versus movie Gaorangers vs Super Sentai and I have been impressed. He is the youngest son(but he is the eldest in real life) so he must accept any his brothers’ orders. He admitted any mistakes when he did wrong or not. That why I liked him.
+Matsuri Tatsumi/Go Pink: She is my favorite. She’s pretty and I like her warm love. No Matsuri, no brotherhood in Tatsumi family.
-Professor Mondo Tatsumi: He is a funny and great father. But his own story isn’t much so like Nagare, just little part.
_Villains: I can say all of them are boring, so I just talk some villains:
+Dinus: the least boring in series, I felt there is love story between Nagare and her. I hate Dinus death, why she died for Zylpheeza?
+Zylpheeza: I prefer him in Lightspeed Rescue because he is the enemy of Titanium Ranger.
+Salamandes: He’s useless. Like Zylpheeza, I like him in Lightspeed Rescue.
_Kyoko Hayase: She appeared in few scenes of few episodes and I think the series is still good without her.
*Design: I love the design of suits, weapons and mecha, it’s very cool and I am going to collect GoGo V toys.
My Rating: ★★★
