RightStuf Anime describes the synopsis as follows,
“Young gambling sharpie I.C. Blues makes the bet of the century against Bloody God, the biggest syndicate boss in the galaxy: Blues has to visit all 50 planets in the Solar System in the space of a year. But since a vast fortune is on the line, Bloody God will stop at nothing to prevent Blues from accomplishing his goal. He has armies on virtually every planet and the most talented hit man in the universe on his payroll.
Fortunately, Blues has resources of his own. In the spirit of the J9 franchise, he assembles a team of young, skilled, charming members: The marksman, Rock, the ace pilot, Beat, and the beautiful, whimsical all-rounder, Birdy. Blues also purchases (on credit) a space train that can transform into a giant robot, Sasuraiger.”
The show is also known as Galactic Gale Sasuraiger, Sasuryger, Sasreiger, Galaxy Whirlwind Sasuraiger, and Wonder Six.
