YMMV / Go Shogun

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Remy's Last Stand against the Beast of Fate, full stop.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The finale.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Haruko Kuwana's Toki no Étranger.
  • Cut-and-Paste Translation:
    • In 1985, staff in the USA combined footage from GoShogun and Akū Daisakusen Srungle, a similar show produced by Kokusai Eiga-sha, to form "Macron-1", which portrays the Srungle characters as being part of another branch of the organization fighting evil in a parallel universe. This combined series was produced and released in the United States by Saban.
    • The US version involves test pilot David Chance travelling into a parallel universe under the tyrannical control of an organization called GRIP, led by Dark Star. Chance's entrance into the other universe allows GRIP to send their forces to Earth, leaving Dark Star's cyborg henchman Orn to remain in control in the alternate universe. GRIP is opposed by the two teams of Macron-1, the first led by Dr. Shegall and his team on Earth (from the GoShogun footage), while in the alternate universe Chance organizes a band of rebel warriors, Beta Command, to combat and overthrow Orn (from the Srungle footage). The Beta Command members were given much less screen time than the Earth team.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In 1985, this series was released in Europe as Macron I. In 2017, Emmanuel Macron was elected President of France. Giant robots for the win.
  • Tear Jerker: Not a few people get teary-eyed watching Remy's desperate battle with the Beast of Fate to a melancholy song in the background.
