Editorial Reviews

War in space! Transforming super robots! Burning, hot-blooded emotional drama! Danguard Ace is a classic of Japanese animation: created by artist Leiji Matsumoto (Space Battleship Yamato, Starzinger), and originally featured as part of the Force Five series broadcast on US television.


A new planet named Promete is on the verge of entering our solar system. The World Space Institute tries to reach this new world to tap its resources, but a mysterious malfunction leads to tragic consequences for the brave space pilots and their mission.


Years later, the next generation of pilots, including Takuma, the son of an astronaut who disappeared during the first attempt to reach Promete, trains for a new voyage to the mysterious planet. Takuma and his friends are stationed at Jasdam Base, a high-tech facility where construction has begun on Danguard Ace, an incredible transforming robot that Takuma is destined to pilot.

The die-hard anime fans out there that are either objecting or hesitant about purchasing these feature compilations need to understand that it was the original Japanese studio Toei themselves who had all these TV anime dubbed and compiled into features in the first place. Many of these shows had filler episodes and I believe this feature format is actually the best way to attract these old shows overseas, as you get the real essential elements of each series, while remaining faithful to the essence of the original Japanese series, so they are not sanitized or Americanized in any real way at all. Toei themselves planned out how each series was to be edited for the features. So for all the die-hard anime fans out there, this is really as good as you're going to get. The voice acting in the dubs aren't perfect, but at least, because its Toei themselves putting these out internationally and not a local licensor, you know the scripts never really stray from the original Japanese ones.

As for those who grew up with Danguard Ace on Force Five, I think all the Force Five series have had their rights reverted back to Toei. I dont believe the company that makes them even exists anymore. There's no way they will ever be released officially on DVD. Besides, each of the Force Five series only had 26 episodes produced among them, so they are incomplete with no conclusion, which these features will have. Besides, Toei themselves feel these international feature compilations are superior to the original Force Five dubs.

I would advise all the die-hard purist anime fans out there to read this interview with the person in charge of the company that did all these dubbed feature compilations for Toei. I think he makes an excellent case for the rationale of why Toei went with this approach.

I remember vaguely watching force five as a kid and dangaurd ace was part of it, I really don't remember the stories but these are good to watch, it's an abbreviation of the series but it was great.

and it didn't disappoint at all. If you're fans of giant robots, spaceships and that type of old-school anime action, you'll like this.
