The second sentai series. In order to stop Crime, ISSIS CommanderKujirai assembled the following young people to undergooperations that would transform them into superhuman cyborgs:Sakurai Gorou, Olympic pentathlon medalist HIgashi Ryuu,welterweight expatriate boxer framed for murder Karen Mizuki,detective whose father was murdered by Crime Daichi Bunta, whodied exploring the sea Together, the Jack, Ace, King, and Queenformed JAKQ, pronounced "Jacka". This was initially amuch darker series than the humorous Gorangers (or any of theSuper Sentai), with story lines addressing issues such as druguse (though in a juvenile manner). However, the dark approachfailed to appeal to children, and so beginning with episode 23, amuch lighter approach was tried with the introduction of thecomedic characters Big One and Hime Tamasaburou. This 'new' JAKQfailed to complete its third course (run of 39 episodes), and sothe sentai series went into oblivion for the next year. This wasIshi(no)mori Shoutarou's last sentai series.
