30 Sentai Encyclopedia
The title card for the 30 Sentai
The 30 Sentai Encyclopedia (30????? ,San-
j Sentai Dai Zensh) which when literally
translated means "30 Squadron Great Com-
plete Works" or "Big Gathering of the 30
Squadrons" is a series of video clips that
aired at the end of each Task (or episode) of
GoGo Sentai Boukenger that pays homage to
each of its predecessors in the long-running
Japanese Super Sentai franchise, which cel-
ebrated its 30th anniversary with Boukenger.
30 Sentai Encyclopedia is also the title of a
book that commemorates the series and fea-
tures information on all incarnations of the
Super Sentai series.
In Task 3, it was announced that starting
with Task 4, this series will be playing a mini
featurette for each of the previous Sentai
teams. In each of these segments, one of the
Boukengers starts everything by saying
"Today's Super Sentai is..." usually followed
by the whole team saying the name of the
series and performing that previous team's
henshin (transformation) pose and the theme
song of the series is played in the back-
ground. They then talk about that day's Sen-
tai team, and at the end, at least one of the
Boukengers does something related to that
day's Super Sentai.
Each featurette is started by one of the
Boukengers. From Goranger to Zyuranger,
this sequence took place with the core five in
the DaiBouken cockpit. Starting with the fea-
turette for Dairanger, Eiji joins the others in
the area of SGS Headquarters where Mr.
Voice is usually seen, but they are in front of
a wall of photos of the previous Sentai.
At the end of Task 33, Boukenger looked
back on itself shortly, but then it was stated
that the segments will shift focus from the
different series to important points and firsts
in the history of Super Sentai called the "30
