The plot[edit]

It has been another one year after the Three Great Demons got defeated by Great Ganbaruger.

However, one thing stands in their way. Earth's ancient protector and soldier of light, Eldoran. To fight this menace he gives a 6th-grade class of Harukaze Elementary School three huge robotic dinosaurs, including of Magna Tyranno and Grantops, with the power to merge and form the giant robot Gosaurer including Hot blooded evolutions of Magnasaurer and Gransaurer, which they then can pilot and use to stop the Kikaika Empire's advances.

Characters[edit]

Saurers (ザウラーズ, Zauraazu?)[edit]

Kenichi Minezaki (峯崎 拳一, Minezaki Kenichi?)
Voiced by: Urara Takano

Kenichi Minezaki is the sixth grade main pilot of Gosaurer. His parents run a sports store named "Minezaki Sports". He is the cheerful boy, but is having a hundred percent problems of academics. He is friends with Saneyasu and Kazutaka.

Hiromi Tachibana (立花 浩美, Tachibana Hiromi?)
Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara

Hiromi Tachibana is the son of a klutzy doctor who lives in Harukaze City, a neighboring city to Aozora and Hinobori. In fact, he is the pilot of Land Stego.

Shinobu Asaoka (朝岡 しのぶ, Asaoka Shinobu?)
Voiced by: Yuri Amano

A tomboyish sixth grade girl who often argues with Kenichi. She once wore a kimono to school. She is the pilot of Thunder Brachio.

Taro Shirogane (白金 太郎, Shirogane Tarou?)
Voiced by: Bin Shimada

The judo student who is aggressive and the toughest. It is not long until he is the pilot of Magna Tyranno.

Yoji Hiyama (火山 洋二, Hiyama Youji?)
Voiced by: Akemi Shinohara

A nerd and teacher's pet, who likes to read, though his own family disapproved. He is the son of an elite family in Harukaze. Personally, he has a crush on the Class 6-3's homeroom teacher, Yayoi Yuri. It is also not long before he becomes pilot of Grantops.

Goro Ishida (石田 五郎, Ishida Gorou?)
Voiced by: Noriko Uemura

Class president and pilot of Saurer Jet. Has a very powerful temper, and is like a volcano when it erupts: gentle and seemingly stable, but when he gets cut off, then BOOM.

Erika Kozu (光主 エリカ, Kouzu Erika?)
Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara

The leader of the Saurers. She gives the scramble command through her brace, and occupies the main command seat in the command center. She has a bit of an ego as well, leading to situations like dragging the Saurers into a movie production so she can be an idol.

Takako Kojima (小島 尊子, Kojima Takako?)
Voiced by: Ikue Otani

The "mad scientist" of the Saurers. Not only did she help develop Boueigar (Gransaurer) but she also writes the program for King Gosaurer. Strangely enough, the code looks like Basic, so that may have helped. She also was the one who first worked out the functions of Gosaurer.

Shuzo Osada (長田 秀三, Osada Shuuzou?)
Voiced by: Yuri Amano

Very good with mechanical things. He helped with the design and construction of Boueigar. He seems to possibly be more than a friend with Kyouju. His father seems to have some type of job involving cars.

Saneyasu Mushanokoji (武者小路 叉音泰, Mushanokouji Saneyasu?)
Voiced by: Akemi Shinohara

The second of the "terrible trio" with Chobi and Kenichi. Wears a hat.

Kazutaka Seki (関 和孝, Seki Kazutaka?)

The third member of Kenichi's trio. He is good at soccer, and proud of it.

Yuka Mizuhara (水原 結花, Mizuhara Yuka?)
Voiced by: Ikue Otani

The first of the female trio. She is more of a crybaby than Kumiko and Harue. Possibly has some sort of relationship between her and Kinta.

Kumiko Tanabe (田辺 久美子, Tanabe Kumiko?)
Voiced by: Urara Takano

The second of the female trio. She was once stalked by Hiromi as a subject for art, but when he gets hurt she gets around her feelings to treat him, and in fact seems to possibly care about him after that. The nurse, as such, among the kids.

Harue Yamamoto (山本 春枝, Yamamoto Harue?)
Voiced by: Megumi Hayashibara

The third member of the female trio, her timidity seems to be expressed in her introvertedness. She is the tallest one in the class, and while Bon seemed to have a crush on her, in the end it appeared to have amounted to nothing, leaving her as the only one of the three likely not to have a potential boyfriend.

Akemi Sato (佐藤 明美, Satou Akemi?)
Voiced by: Akemi Shinohara

The first-born of the Sato twins.

Harumi Sato (佐藤 晴美, Satou Harumi?)

An overeater. During the Saurer's stay in the time of the dinosaurs, he ends up for a short while adopting a baby dinosaur which hatched from the egg he was about to eat. In the end though he has to leave it behind.

Ikuyo Oyama (大山 育代, Ooyama Ikuyo?)
Voiced by: Noriko Uemura

A heavyset girl. She takes care of the class's pet, an iguana, and is kind to animals in general. She even rescued a stray cat who got caught inside Gosaurer when a battle began.

The Robots[edit]

Unlike the previous Eldran series' unit, both the Gosaurer and Magnasaurer are transformed by the school itself, rather than launched under the base of school/street, which means the facilities in school are usable, but also means that the armour are extremely weak.

Gosaurer[edit]

(While not engaging in battle, it was the central part of the school, including classroom which the Saurers belongs to)

Saurer Jet (ザウラージェット, Zauraa Jetto?)[edit]

It is piloted by Ishita Gorou. This form is the form Gosaurer takes when first launched. It is good for transportation but not much else, as the only weapons usable in this form are the Thunder Cannons, Jet Vulcan, and the Saurer Jet itself. Once it has reached its destination, it splits into its three components with the command "Saurer Formation."

When the command "Nekketsu Gattai" is given to the Commander unit, the three Dinosaur Robots merge into Gosaurer. The three pilots move to the head, where Kenichi seems to be the main pilot. The three command centers recombine into a new command center in the middle of Gosaurer's chest. Its attacks include:

Magna Buster (マグナバスター, Maguna Basutaa?)[edit]

The equipment mode. When the command "Nekketsu Bussou" or Hot-Blooded Armament is given, it can combine with Gosaurer to allow use of the finishing move "Saurer Big Buster" (Note: "Saurer Big Buster" can be fired even without combining with Gosaurer, but this has been done only once in the anime), firing a huge blast from the cannons. It also is this mode initially during launch, as a part of the Saurer Jet. When it is not engaging in battles, it was the part of the school which the stairs, as well as the cookery located. The name of the robot is Buster Gosaurer (バスターゴウザウラー, Basutaa Gouzauraa?).Buster Gosaurer changes to Super Saurer Jet (スーパーザウラージェット, Suupaa Zauraa Jetto?).

The combination of Gosaurer, Magnasaurer and Gransaurer into a single, powerful robot. It requires all the Saurers to be on board to commence the merge, and Kenichi, Youji and Kinta must all give the command "Chou Nekketsu Gattai" (Super-Hot-Blooded Merge) simultaneously to their Commander units. It can use the following attacks:
