Go-onger #-man team starting number

Post by mateo360 » Mon Dec 14, 2009 8:30 am

This has been bugging me since I saw in the 2010 Sentai series board. Someone mentioned that Go-onger was a three man starting team but by the end of ep. 2 they had their five. All the promotional images and even the intro for the first episode showed them as a five man team. I believe that they are a five man and not three. What does everyone else think?

Does a series start at the end of episode 2? Your logic intrigues me, and I wish to subscribe to your newspaper

I agree, when you introduce 5 members from the start, regardless of how long it takes said members to actually get their member status (yay, silly episode-lengthening), you've pretty much started with a 5 man team. Granted, Hanto and Gunpei did take second-fiddle to the other three.

The lead three have basic uniform styles and their own mecha combo. The three of them can combine their weapons into a big blaster.

Hanto and Gunpei have unique uniforms/changers and a separate mecha combo. The two of them can combine their weapons into a big blaster.

The Go-On Wings also have unique uniforms and a separate combo.

I think that Red, Blue and Yellow are a three-man team who luckily got their wildcards pretty quickly. As opposed to the timing of their arrival, the style of their weaponry sets them apart in my mind.

Where in my post did I ever say the series started at ep. 2? I am saying I don't think 1 episode with only three people really means they should be considered a three man team. If you look at some others like gekiranger, would you say yellow and blue were a two man starting team? Boukenger the first episode was saying that black and yellow just joined so would Red, Pink and blue be a three man team?

A three person team can never be a five person team!
