Trivia / J.A.K.Q. Dengekitai

Go To

  • Acting for Two/Talking to Himself: Subverted in J.A.K.Q. vs. Goranger. Even though Hiroshi Miyauchi played Akira Shinmei in Goranger as well as Sokichi Bamba/Big One, Akira Shinmei never appears in his civilian form (none of the Gorangers do, except for Peggy) and Ao Ranger's interactions with Big One are limited.
  • Cancellation: Why the show didn't even last a full year.
  • Romance on the Set: Yoshitaka Tamba (Gorō Sakurai) and Mitchy Love (Karen Mizuki) dated each other as their characters became romantically involved towards the end of the series. However, their relationship did not last after the series ended.
  • Advertisement:
  • Screwed by the Network: Inverted, contrary to popular belief. After Goranger ended, TV Ashi asked for another series from Toei and Ishinomori, who decided to go in a Darker and Edgier direction to distinguish it from its predecessor. Unfortunately, they made it too dark, alienating its child audience with its level of violence. Ratings dropped and never recovered, even after the Lighter and Softer retool.
  • Sequel First: For some reason this aired in the Philippines first before Gorenger did under the name The Lucky Aces.
  • What Could Have Been: Originally, the colors of Spade Ace and Dia Jack were switched - the former would've been the blue ranger, and the latter would've been the red.
  • The Wiki Rule: Covered as part of RangerWiki, and as an individual series on the J.A.K.Q. Wiki.
