Grandma Yacchan is leaving for a hot springs getaway and leaves the shop in the care of Kaito and the others. But as soon as she leaves, a Tojitendo has appeared. Gaon tells everyone to go while he and Magine stay to watch the shop.
They arrive in the underground garage where Zox is already fighting Vacation World. Kaito uses Changeman Gear to send the Tojitendo flying above ground on a geyser of lava. But Vacation World zaps everyone to put them in a vacation mood. Everyone from office workers to restaurant servers to the entire National Diet suddenly just give up on their work to instead relax and have fun.
Barashitara reports to Bokkowaus that the invasion is complete. Bokkowaus is confused. Barashitara explains that Vacation World has caused everyone to give up on their will to fight, so they will not encounter any resistance upon their takeover of Earth. Bokkowaus commends Barashitara on his success.
The Zenkaigers are enjoying a barbecue on the beach. But Vacation World crashes the party to take over their spot. Kaito challenges them to a volleyball game to determine who can stay.
Kaito uses the Sun Vulcan Gear to finish the volleyball game with a win. Vacation World suggests a different game and the Goldtsuikers decide to join the fun.
The Goldtsuikers win and Gaon uses a Kiramager Gear to have sparkles rain down for the celebration.
Meanwhile, Barashitara heads down to Earth to find out why he is unable to get in contact with anyone. That’s because all the Tojitendo troops have also gone on vacation as well.
Back on the beach, they move on to the next game which involves playing watermelon rugby.
Barashitara arrives and scolds Vacation World for wasting so much time. He shoots at Vacation World and he explodes, releasing everyone from their vacation trance.
The Zenkaigers lament Vacation World’s death.
Barashitara tosses the Gear at Kudaitests and Kaito, Vroom and Magine hop into Zenkai-Oh. Zox hops into Twokai-Oh Cutanner. Kaito and Zox go Super and finish off Dai Vacation World for good.
Back at the shop, the Zenkaigers start to clean up the mess. Kaito thinks about having fun with the Tojitendo and wishes that can happen all the time.
Grandma Yacchan arrives home from her hot springs trip and is surprised to see the shop in shambles.
Well, that was the most filler of filler episodes if I ever saw one. Might as well have been a clip show.
I guess the lesson of the week was that a future where humans, Kikainoids and Tojitendos can have fun beach parties together is possible.
That was basically it. The rest of the episode was just them playing beach games. With the watermelon rugby thing taking the place of the episode’s requisite morphed ground battle.
There’s really not much else to say about the episode. I guess it was fun for what it was. But certainly not an episode I’ll be repeating any time soon.

Since this episode came out near the end of summer vacation, it’s nice to see Rangers are having fun with vacation, such as swimming, volley ball, and smashing watermelons.
Despite being an ally, it was interesting that TwoKaizer and his mates are treated as third team, rather than part of Zenkaiger.
While it was filler, it was fun vacation episode.
That’s interesting point that the Goldtsuikers are not yet part of the Zenkaigers, per se. Hope they can get some story from that dynamic too.
