Important things that happened[edit]

  • Gai shows his finalized Super Sentai Big Encyclopedia for his crewmates to research how the previous sentai teams fought. Joe, who shows no interest, leaves the GokaiGalleon for shopping - with Gai following him to learn more about him.
  • During their walk, they bump into a young boy who nearly hits Gai with his bicycle. The boy, Shouta, arrives at a nearby shrine to wish for fair weather- only to see Action Commander Starguru holding a black stone. Spotted, Shouta and pedals away from the Zangyack and his Goumin, running into Joe and Gai who assume their Gokaiger forms quickly dispatch the Goumin.
  • Despite GokaiBlue turning into AbareBlue to his ally's dismay, he and GokaiSilver as DragonRanger overwhelm Starguru before he falls back upon remembering his mission.
  • After the fight, though they notice his wound, Shouta tells Gai and Joe that he is fulfilling a promise he made with his friend Daigo to watch the meteor shower on Mt. Kamikura. Though Joe calls the boy an idiot, he mends Shouta's wounded leg and telling him to go to his destination.
  • Returning to the GokaiGalleon, Doc obtains information about the black stone, revealed to be the Spirit Stone, the child stone that when joined to its other half grants its user limitless energy. Joe realizes that the location of other stone is at Mt. Kamikura, where Shouta is headed.
  • Fearing for Shouta's safety, Joe and Gai head for the mountain, while the other Gokaigers follow suit as Starguru combines the two stones.
  • Fighting a group of Goumin that are keeping intruders away from the submit, Joe and Gai save Shouta. Though Gai tries to talk him into leaving, Shouta refuses while revealing the full story behind his promise with Daigo as Joe allows the boy to pass to Gai's dismay.
  • By the time they reach the mountain top, the Gokaigers find that Starguru has absorbed the stones' energy and uses his secret technique, Meteor Dive to summon an asteroid toward Earth.
  • Transforming to negate his ability with his destruction, the Gokaigers use powers of the Goseigers, Dairangers and OhRangers to overwhelm the Action Commander's power boost.
  • However, refusing to give the Gokaigers the chance to destroy him, Waruzu Giru impatiently fires the enlarging beam. Forming Gokai-Ou to save Shouta from Starguru, with GokaiBlue encouraging the boy to continue, the Gokaigers form Shinken Gokai-Ou with GouJyuJin supporting them in destroying the Action Commander. However, in his dying breath, Starguru reveals they are too late to stop the asteroid's course to Earth.
  • When Gokai-Ou's Gokai Star Burst has no effect, GokaiSilver has GokaiBlue use Gokai-Ou to throw GouJyuJin in the air, enabling the latter robot to destroy the asteroid with the Gokai Dengeki Drill Spin.
  • By sunset, Shouta manages to fulfill his promise with Daigo as they watch the shooting stars with the Gokaigers looking on. Though Gai compares his actions to the previous Sentai, Joe states that Shouta did all the work in fulfilling his dream.
