The Kiramagers are back at the coconut tree trying to figure out what they need to do to save Sayo and to stop the Yodon Ivy seed from sprouting. They will have to use Kiramaizin, King Express Zabyun and Gigant Driller to take on the three Jamenjus while Grateful Phoenix will have to destroy the seed.
Muryou tries calling Oradin, but he asks to speak with Juuru first. Juuru’s mind somehow gets transported inside Oradin where he can see exactly what Garuza is doing to the king’s body.
Garuza says his Jamental is stronger and he will be able to seal Oradin away. But Oradin says the Kiramagers are strong enough to never let that happen. Garuza explains that he’s planned out exactly how to overpower the Kiramagers after studying their previous encounters. Oradin tells Juuru that he believes in their bond.
Juuru’s consciousness returns to the coconut tree and he tells the others what he saw. Since Oradin cannot come to help, Juuru suggests he and Tametomo save Sayo while the others pilot the mecha against the Jamenjus.
Mabushina holds her mother’s crown and asks her to watch over the others.
An army of Bechats are guarding the genetics laboratory building. The Kiramagers realize that Garuza and Co. have a well-thought out plan and they must not make any mistakes.
Juuru and Tametomo are on the ground and henshin. That gives Takamichi, Shiguru and Sena who are piloting one of each of the mecha the signal to pop out of the ground and charge toward the Jamenjus. Juuru and Tametomo battle through the Bechats and inside the lab building.
Over in Atamald, Garuza explains that his strength comes from the pure rage and hatred seeing Oradin’s overwhelming kirakira. Having that hatred boil over has made his Jamental as strong as ever and he will use that to drive Oradin to despair. Oradin says he doesn’t even know the meaning of the word.
Juuru and Tametomo head inside the laboratory building, but are met by an army of Hyper Bechats. Tametomo believes they are right above the seed so he and Juuru shoot a hole in the floor and fall through.
They find the pulsating seed. But before they can shoot at it, Yodonna comes in with her whip around Sayo’s neck. She tells them to drop their weapons or Sayo dies.
Juuru and Tametomo have no choice but to toss their blasters aside. Above ground, Takamichi, Shiguru and Sena are helpless against the three Jamenju’s coordinated attack.
Juuru calls on Kiraful Go Arrow and points it at the seed. Yodonna reminds him that she has Sayo’s life in her hands. Sayo tells Juuru not to worry about her and just destroy the seed.
Juuru pauses and turns to shoot the arrow in a different direction. Yodonna laughs hysterically. But suddenly, a large hand bursts through the ceiling. It’s Oradin in Grateful Phoenix!
Oradin yanks the seed out of the lab and laughs. Yodonna can’t believe it so Juuru explains.
Juuru had a Hirameking where he thought Oradin could transfer himself into other Stones just like the queen did. So he asked Oradin to transfer himself inside Kiraful Go Arrow. As soon as he did, Juuru shoots the arrow into the direction of Atamald and it hits Garuza directly, stopping his assault on the Stone.
Oradin returns to the Stone and then calls Hakobu to form Grateful Phoenix. Garuza hitches a ride on Grateful Phoenix’s foot as King Oradin arrives on Earth.
Yodonna says that’s interesting and leaves.
Sayo thanks Juuru and Tametomo and apologizes for worrying them. Tametomo says he should apologize for pushing Sayo on the date. Juuru interrupts them for some reason.
They hurry above ground where Garuza has hopped into Smog Jouki. Sayo henshins and she, Juuru and Tametomo hop in to their Mashins.
It is a 4 on 4 battle. Garuza says the Yodon Ivy Seed will sprout in five minutes. The Kiramagers try to keep the seed away from Garuza and the Jamenjus so they can destroy it. But Garuza is able to retrieve it as it begins to sprout.
Just then, the Kiramagers realize the Jamenjus are lining up like their coordinated attack earlier. But Tametomo has a plan. They will use a Rock Paper Scissors template to counter the three Jamanjus’ attacks. And with a Grateful Prominence, Juuru and Oradin destroy three Jamenjus for good.
But now they must deal with Garuza. Muryou warns them that even Grateful Phoenix’s finisher is not enough to destroy the seed.
Juuru has another Hirameking and asks Oradin to go inside Kiraful Go Arrow again. Oradin says he and Juuru have the same idea. And as he jumps in, the arrow embiggens!
The Kiramagers are now able to use the embiggend Grateful Go Arrow to destroy the seed for good.
Oradin explains that every single one of the Kiramagers contributed to the success. And it is that strong bond and teamwork that will get them through anything. It is because Garuza underestimated the Kiramagers that he lost.
The greater the challenge, the stronger the bond, the more they inspire each other; that is what lets their Kiramental shine.
Garuza storms back to the darkness and vows that he will drag the Kiramagers to hell.
And a climactic battle it was! Wow! It was a mecha-heavy and henshined-heavy episode. But the action was on point. Some amazing, kinetic scenes. Which is definitely nothing new for Kiramager. But it was an epic episode that was so much fun to watch.
This is how you do an explosive climax. A lot of the last couple of episodes really helped to build up to this one. And all the elements and plot developments came together.
The one thing I’m kinda meh about is Juuru and Oradin’s telepathic connection. I still don’t really buy that whole connection. They’re teasing Juuru is the chosen one or something and it’s kind of a tired concept. Having Red be so special and the “chosen one” is probably one Sentai trope I wish Kiramager would’ve set aside. Juuru’s expository explanation about how he figured out the Go Arrow stuff was not the most exciting way to reveal all that information.
But thankfully, Kiramager is able to pick up the slack elsewhere. All the Kiramagers as well as Mabushina and Muryou all had a hand in the episode and the success of the mission. They all put in the work, they used their brains and they lent their support to drive home the win.
Oradin’s little monologue at the end about the bond and the teamwork was great as I really think the Kiramagers (including Mabushina and Muryou) are one of the strongest teams. The bond and teamwork is so strong. And it’s definitely a great message for the kiddies. When you match that with great characters, good story and exciting action, then that’s a recipe for success.
The action sequences throughout the episode, especially these two:
OMG. What about this scene from Kiramager 33? Just outstanding work from everyone involved. Choreography, directing, visual effects, voice acting. So much epic in less than a minute. I expect nothing less from this season, tbh. #キラメイジャー pic.twitter.com/vA3bT3FuEu

How about this amazing sequence from Kiramager 33! One of the most exciting and dynamic mecha battles I've seen in a while. Such great work, especially from the suit actors knowing how bulky and difficult those costumes can be. The scoring is also so perfect here. #キラメイジャー pic.twitter.com/maRzZvqtRL

Kiramager has really delivered all season. And this episode is a great example of the heights the season can reach. So good.
