Shout!

The 1999 series was eventually adapted for American consumption by Saban as Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, and like all of Shout's titles in the Super Sentai line, this marks one of the first times the original story will be told unedited for its official US release.
GoGoV chronicled the exploits of the Tatsumi Family as they waged war against a horde of monsters bent upon destroying everything their rescue organization fought to protect.

UPDATE: Shout! Factory confirmed earlier this year their official release of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman coming in 2018. The original story follows.
Shout! Factory has been kicking ass and taking names these past few years, putting out one quality release after another from the worlds of Power Rangers, Super Sentai, and other tokusatsu titles. Continuing their trend of releasing each yearly Super Sentai series, beginning from 1992's Kryoryu Sentai Zyuranger (from which Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was adapted), we now have 1998's Seijuu Sentai Gingaman (Power Rangers Lost Galaxy) to add to the growing Sentai pantheon.
