Captain Tsubasa Episode 77

The series was followed soon after into a second adaptation, entitled Captain Tsubasa J, which was produced by NAS and Fuji TV and animated by Studio Comet. It was a retelling of the first volumes that continued adapting the manga where the previous series had stopped. It aired for 47 episodes on Fuji TV between October 21, 1994, and December 22, 1995, and was followed by an original video animation, Captain Tsubasa: Holland Youth, which was released in 1994.[58]

Captain Tsubasa Episode 77

A third adaptation, Captain Tsubasa: Road to Dream, also known as Captain Tsubasa Road to 2002, animated by Group TAC, aired on TV Tokyo between October 7, 2001, and October 6, 2002, with music published by Avex Mode. All of the versions of the Captain Tsubasa animated series have been broadcast by the animation satellite television network Animax across its original network in Japan and later across its respective networks worldwide, including East Asia, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, South Asia and other regions. English dubs of all series have aired on Animax Asia[59][60][61][62] and some episodes of the English dub were released on VCDs by Speedy Video Malaysia.[61][63][64][65]

By the time of Choushinsei Flashman, Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. were still recognized by the majority as part of the Super Sentai series, with Flashman being regarded as the tenth season, though a minority of publications had continued to treat Battle Fever J as the first season. However, in 1988, Choujuu Sentai Liveman was labelled as celebrating the 10th anniversary of the franchise, with Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. officially excluded from the franchise lineup. In episode 0 of the 1989 series Turboranger, when it honored the past ten Super Sentai series, Battle Fever J was listed as the first Sentai. It is not known why this change was made.

Finally, during the run of Mirai Sentai Timeranger in 2000, the Sentai Series was officially rebranded as the Super Sentai Series (スーパー戦隊シリーズ, Sūpā Sentai Shirīzu), with Gorenger and J.A.K.Q. given official recognition as "Super Sentai", as shown during episode 51 of Timeranger, which showed a compilation of the first 24 Super Sentai, as well as a preview of the then-upcoming 25th Super Sentai, Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger. 041b061a72
