Grandma Yacchan and the others anxiously await Kaito who returns home to say he hasn’t found his mother. The Kikainoids also had no luck. Secchan has been working furiously to search from the command center as well.
Gaon wonders if Mama Goshikida fled to another world. Zox arrives and Kaito asks if he can take them to some parallel worlds to look.
Stacey is with Ijirude who does not understand how his prisoner was able to escape from the pod. Turns out Mama Goshikida was trying to use the Parallel World Gate to escape, but the Kudakks attacked it and caused it to malfunction. So now they are unable to track where she might have gone.
Ijirude says Stacey must help in the search because the woman is a very important sample for his research.
While Gaon and Vroom stay behind to accompany Grandma Yacchan at home, Kaito, Zyuran and Magine hop onboard the Goldtsuiker ship to begin travel to the worlds they have liberated so far.
Magine uses her crystal ball to decide which world they will try out first. But Zox tells Flint to just have them go anywhere so as not to waste time.
While Magine stays onboard trying to get the crystal ball to give them a lead, the others hop down to Kashiwa Mochitopia. They run into an alternate Mr. Su who is afraid of them. Zyuran chases after him, but gets accused of being a pervert because he doesn’t have a Kashiwa mochi on his head.
Magine’s crystal ball finally suggests Retrotopia and they all head down. But this world’s Mr. Su is a police officer who thinks the “machines” are looking very suspicious.
No Mama Goshikida here so they proceed to Icetopia where she isn’t either. Zox mentions Kaito looks happier and he replies that it’s just great to see these worlds free from Tojitendo control.
Kaito speaks too soon though as Stacey arrives with some Kudaiters. He says Kudaiters have also been sent to other worlds to search for Mama Goshikida. Back on Earthtopia, Vroom and Gaon have to deal with those Kudaiters.
Stacey says Mama Goshikida should’ve just returned to her home world. Now, Kudaiters and Kudakks will be rampaging throughout other worlds looking for her.
Kaito suggests to Zox that they split up and take care of those other worlds. But Zox says he’s only helping them and has no interest in world hopping to fight. Magine says finding Mama Goshikida in the next world will be able to end everything and Kaito has an idea.
In Mushroomtopia, Kaito, Zox and Zyuran confront the Kudaiter. But just as they start to fight, Flint comes running in to say she’s found Mama Goshikida. Kaito, Zyuran and Zox follow her. The Kudaiter calls Ijirude to say they’ve found the fugitive. And Ijirude calls all Kudaiters and Kudakks and tells them to converge onto Mushroomtopia.
“Mama Goshikida” stands with Kaito, Zox and Zyuran as Stacey arrives. They henshin and fight off the Tojitendo. Stacey takes “Mama Goshikida,” but Kaito is able to grab her back. Kaito and Zox uphenshin to Super to finish everyone off. Flint arrives and they all hop in and leave for Earthtopia.
Stacey is relieved, saying this is for Grandma Yacchan. But Ijirude calls and orders him to use Black ZyuraGaon. Stacey chases after the ship and shoots them down in Icetopia. Kaito and Zox form Zenkaiju-Oh and battle Stacey.
After they finish him off, they return home and reunite with Gaon and Vroom. “Mama Goshikida” is actually Magine. The plan is to let the Tojitendo believe she’s safely at home with them so they won’t terrorize the other worlds anymore.
They all agree that they can face these new challenges head-on as long as they are together. In exchange, the Goldtsuikers want free treats at the shop.
A simple, straightforward episode that sets up the next arc of the season I guess. Searching for Mama Goshikida looks to be a multi-episode story. And this episode essentially gets the Tojitendo off their back while doing so.
It was great to see the Zenkaigers closely working with the Goldtsuikers. And while we of course got the apathetic Zox moments again, we also got some of Zox secretly, actually happy to help out at the end as well.
Biggest thing to come out of the episode really was more of Stacey caring for Grandma Yacchan by way of doing what he can to help Mama Goshikida’s safety while not letting on to Ijirude and the other Tojitendo about his true feelings. It also shows that after his rebuild, he essentially has exactly the same memories and feelings as he did before it.
Maybe one of the more interesting details of the episode was seeing Su-san in each of the worlds they visited. And in one world, Mr. Su saying that wasn’t actually his name. So again, the theory about an alternate Grandma Yacchan is still possible. There must be other Kaitos and Grandma Yacchans in all the worlds. Though maybe not the exact same, as we saw with Mr. Su.
Overall, a simple episode. Enjoyable. But maybe not too memorable. Really just helping to set-up upcoming weeks.

Yeah, this was definitely a fun eps.
And clearly, Zox was happy to help even if he won’t admit it.
Zox is 100% tsundere. Confirmed.
