Kaito and Vroom try to avoid getting tagged. They run into Onigokko World, but remember they can’t touch him or they’re also It. They shoot at him from a safe distance. But the twins appear and are able to tag Vroom when Kaito ducks out of the way.

Flint tries to get her brothers to snap out of it and is ready to take them on if they try to tag her. But Zox swoops in to take her back to the ship for now.

The others arrive as Gaon shoots Vroom and Magine whips up a slingshot for Kaito to flick the twins up into the sky. Zyuran, Gaon, Magine and Kaito make a run for it.

Up on the ship, Zox gives Flint some lobster to cheer her up. But she is worried about their siblings.

At the shop, Grandma Yacchan remembers how Kaito would always be the last kid standing when playing tag as a kid. Magine promises to use her magic to keep the Its under control. But Vroom pops into the shop and quickly tags her.

Magine tags Grandma Yacchan and she, Vroom and Magine go chasing after the others.

Kaito manages to escape and finds Flint looking at the filled-buns, blaming herself for the twins getting tagged. Kaito approaches her and she tells him about what happened on SDtopia.

The twins were messing around over something stupid and made a bet about who could defeat the enemy first. Instead, both of them ended up getting cursed. Flint understands they look up to their older brother, but thinks she could’ve done something sooner both back then and today to keep her brothers safe.

Kaito says you can always make up for mistakes and keep trying until you can get it right. At least, that’s what his Gear-inventing parents always told him. He shows her his Gear. But suddenly, a horde of people come running to try and tag them.

Kaito and Flint run. He tells her that they might not be able to do anything about the SDtopia curse. But they can take care of this It curse by defeating Onigokko World.

Bokkowaus sends Onigokko World back down to Earth to tag more people and speed up the process. Kaito says no one is going to have fun playing if they are forced to.

The Zenkaigers all henshin. Kaito, Zyuran and Gaon can’t get a good shot at Onigokko World without putting other people in danger. Secchan suggests Kaito use a Goseiger Gear.

With the Gear, Kaito is able to use a Tensouder and a Windrive Card to blow the It people away to safety. But the twins appear and tag Gaon. Kaito lures Gaon and the twins away, leaving Zyuran to deal with Onigokko World. But he too gets tagged.

That leaves Kaito all on his own. But Zox leaps in and uses a Gekiranger Gear to switch off Onigokko World’s tag abilities, releasing everyone from being It.

Flint pops in with five new Gears she made based on the Zenkaigers’ Gears so Zox can use them as well.

Zox uses a Hurricaneger Gear to wear down Onigokko World before the others use a Zenkai Finish Buster to finish off the World’s first life.

A pair of Kudaitests arrive and one of them steps on the Gear to become Great Onigokko World. They play embiggened tag as Kaito hops into ZenkaiOh ZyuraGaon. Onigokko World tags them and says they have now become a bomb.

Vroom and Magine also transform and Magine uses magic to put the bomb tag back on Onigokko World.

The twins tell their brother that they want some payback. So Zox transforms their ship into CrossKaiOh and Crawling Oh which the twins are able to pilot themselves.

Episode Thoughts

A fun episode overall. It was a little silly, but still fun. My favorite parts were getting more about the twins’ curse as well as the great scenes of them running around the market area. Those were great, dynamic scenes in a way that we don’t normally see on the show.

I also loved getting to see the Tensouder and hearing the familiar “Gotcha” when the Gosei Card gets inserted. It’s been a while since I last watched Goseiger.

We got to see a little bit more of Flint’s character, which is definitely good as she felt a little one-dimensional before this week. Seeing her concern for her little brothers as well as some feelings of guilt was a great insight into her character. Also an interesting feeling toward her brother being more awesome or something like that. I would love to see them explore that more.

Otherwise, it was a pretty simple, straightforward episode. Fun, silly story. Nice debuts of the new toys. Just enough character moments. A solid one.
