Fiveman is probably one of the most adorable super sentai series shown in the Philippines in terms of the show's main heroes are all siblings, and teachers out to protect Earth. I want to believe that in some strange way that children who watched the series gained a few degree of respect towards their grade and high school teachers. There are some very mushy and touchy episodes in Fiveman including Fiveman's beloved robot Arthur. I also remember having a young crush on the Zone Empire's Galactic Empress Meadow.
