We’re back from the dead and ready to rescue another show from unsubbed hell. Unlike our bouts with Abaranger, GoGoV is… more or less very straightforward, so there really isn’t any need for episode notes, most of the time anyway.
Having said that, there are a few general series notes. The villains for this series are called the Saima (災魔), which literally means “disaster demon”. We decided to create a portmanteau for it and settled on Catastrophiend, which combines the words catastrophe and fiend.
Unlike the Abaranger Trinoids, which took their names from the items/concepts that went into making them, the Catastrophiend Beasts in this series don’t really have a set naming pattern. Sometimes they’re in English, sometimes they’re a portmanteau of English and Japanese, and there are even a few that are solely in Japanese. Because there’s really no consistency, we left the names as they were.
As per usual, we included the font we used for this release alongside the script for those who already have the raws (great thanks goes out to Bunny Hat Raws for providing them).
One last note: the movie should be watched after episode 18, so a particular scene will make a bit more sense.
Enjoy the first half of GoGoV and we’ll see you guys next week for the beginning of the second half! And remember: SAVE THE EARTH, SAVE THE LIFE.
