Important things that happened


  • Following the death of Waruzu Giru at the hands of the Gokaigers, the Zangyack have increased the bounties of the space pirates — with Captain Marvelous' head set to an "Unlimited Reward" which means that anyone can name their own price.
  • Aboard the GokaiGalleon, Navi's latest navigation fortune involves Moroboshi High School, which Gai immediately identifies as the school where the MegaRangers attended. Though Gai explains that the MegaRangers have long graduated from Moroboshi High, the Gokaigers decide to investigate nonetheless.
  • Upon arriving at the high school, the Gokaigers meet Date Kenta who is now a teacher at the school. Overhearing them talking about school, Kenta tells the Gokaigers that in order to obtain his team's Grand Power, they must become students for the day. Though only Ahim and Gai look forward to this venture, the others begin to open up and enjoy high school life while developing a connection with the students who are moving toward their dreams.
  • Having been watching them from afar, Kenta sees Sally on the campus and follows the monkey into the forest. Gai, suspecting something is up, follows him. Kenta searches for Sally when he is confronted by Basco who has come to steal the MegaRanger's Grand Power.
  • Gai shows up to protect Kenta just as Basco reveals that he has planted multiple time bombs in Moroboshi High School which will go off in 10 minutes unless Kenta surrenders the Grand Power to him. Having overheard the conversation over the GokaiCellular, Captain Marvelous tells Kenta not give in to the privateer's demands. While GokaiSilver changes into MagiShine to protect Kenta from Sally, the rest of the Gokaigers are aided by Kenta's Digi Ken students in locating the bombs all over the school with the other students' help. However, Basco defeats GokaiSilver before he proceeds to take the Grand Power from Kenta. GokaiSilver uses the GoseiKnight Ranger Key to use a Defenstorm Card against the attack before the other Gokaigers arrive on the scene, revealing that they used the TimeRanger Ranger Keys to freeze-compress the bombs.
  • As Kenta returns to the school, the Gokaigers change into the MegaRangers. GokaiRed and GokaiSilver take on Basco, while the others fight Sally. When the Gokaigers attempt to destroy the damaged Sally, Basco blocks the attack before unleashing the Pseudo-Lifeforms Woodroid Moririn and Soilroid Dororin from the space monkey's body and carrying his pet to safety. After using Magi Gokai-Ou and Fuuraimaru to weaken Dororin and Moririn, they form Kanzen Gokai-Ou to destroy the two Pseudo-Lifeforms.
  • As the day comes to an end, Kenta fulfills his end of the deal by giving the MegaRanger's Grand Power to the Gokaigers as their "diplomas". The pirates then take their leave as Gai tries to talk them into sticking around for dinner with Kenta.
