The Captain General's Concern: Crashing Commander Ishiguro

The Rookie or the Great Veteran? R5 Enters is the eighteenth episode of Tomica Hero: Rescue Force. It feature the first transformation and debut of Captain Ishiguro as R5.


Constant exposure to the Terra Resetter waves and the team's reckless use of their equipment has caused extensive damage to the Rescue Suits and Tools and they must be repaired. Hikaru learns that there was a fifth member of Rescue Force during its first iteration. While the team tries to relax, a Terra Resetter is activated and they must don their Rescue Suits before repairs are finished. This results in them being in a weakened state and in danger of losing to Neo Thera until the legendary R5 appears to save them!
