Was the moral at the end of the story too preachy for you? Did it work for you?

SYNOPSIS

An evil secret society called the Black Cross Army threatens world peace, and only an elite task force known as the Earth Guard League (EAGLE) can stop them. After the Black Cross Army destroys EAGLE’s headquarters across Japan, five young recruits survive. Hiding in a secret underground base, they are given enhanced battlesuits that empower them with superhuman abilities, transforming the youths into an unstoppable squad to combat evil.

This book has an insufficient chapter breakdown, so I did it on my own. I decided that Chapter 2, which I will dub “Robotosaur Rumble” runs from pages 146-253. Gorenger Chapter 2 opens with a team discussion of the suits appearance and capabilities, then sees the team go up against a dinobot which they alone are unable to destroy.

I have broken the Weekly Shonen Sunday run of Gorenger into 2 chapters for my analysis.
