The Curry Samurai (加哩侍 Karē Samurai) is the thirty-sixth episode of Samurai Sentai Shinkenger.
Kotoha accidentally makes Genta a sensation when he begins to sell curry at his sushi cart.
When the Shinkengers go to have lunch at Gold Sushi, Kotoha asks Genta for curry. Genta is taken aback, but he prepares the dish and serves it. Kotoha finds the curry delicious, and it begins to attract attention and, more importantly, customers to Gold Sushi. When the Ayakashi Sogizarai attacks, Genta must leave the cart to help the Shinkengers battle him. Sogizarai's spinning attacks completely overwhelm the Shinkengers, but he dries out and is forced to retreat. After the battle, Takeru and the vassals visit Genta when a businessman offers to move him from the sushi cart to an actual restaurant. Genta thinks about the proposal, which causes Kotoha to feel guilty. The next day, Kotoha apologizes to Genta for mentioning curry in the first place, and the two talk about Genta's dream to have his own sushi restaurant. The businessman returns with the plans for the restaurant, which would sell only curry. Genta firmly rejects the offer just as Sogizarai returns to resume his assault on the city. The Shinkengers engage him, but are still unsure of how to deal with his spinning attacks until Shinken Yellow uses the Inromaru to become Super Shinken Yellow, countering Sogizarai's attacks with her own spinning attack. Shinken Gold then injures Sogizarai, and Super Shinken Yellow finishes him off. DaiGoyou then battles the enlarged Sogizarai, holding off the Ayakashi so Samuraihaoh can be assembled to destroy him. After the battle, Genta posts "no more curry" signs on his sushi cart, losing all of his new customers, to return to his true passion: making sushi.
