Synopsis

Grandiene has been waiting for the moment she can manifest on Earth on the day when the planets are in the alignment of the Grand Cross, sending her children to make the preparations while making Earth into a realm of darkness for her. But Professor Mondo Tatsumi of the Tatsumi Disaster Prevention Research Center, while unable to convince his peers of this event despite his eminence, left his family in order to secretly develop the Rescue System to counter the threat by the Psyma Family. When the Psyma commence their attack in 1999, months before the Grand Cross is to occur, the Tatsumi siblings find themselves recruited by their estranged father to fight the demons as the GoGoFive team.

Notes

  1. ^ Literally translated as Rescue Squad GoGoFive.
  2. ^ Kyūkyū (救急) translates as "First aid" or "Emergency services". In the context of the show, it is normally translated as "Rescue". It is also a pun, as its premiere year of 1999 is often shortened to "99" which in Japanese is also read as "kyū kyū".
