The Return of the Starbeasts (星獣の再来 Seijū no Sairai) is the second episode of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. It is the conclusion of the opening two-part story, introducing the Starbeasts and beginning the set-up of the first general of the Balban to go forth to face the team: Gun Boss Sambash, as well as the tragic loss of the Ginga Forest.
After losing his brother, Hyuuga, to the initial attack from the space pirates and unleashing his true earth power, Ryouma is chosen to become the leader of the new Gingaman. Meanwhile, the Barban realize that though they are revived, their Demon Beast Daitanix has not been revived. Sambash is the first to be elected to find a way to revive Daitanix. The new team take part in a ceremony but are attacked in the process by Shelinda to siphon the forest's life energies to revive Daitanix. Elder Orgi turns the hidden world of the Ginga Forest to stone to ensure that doesn't happen, leaving the team no other option but escape as he threw to them an acorn. Once in the city, the Gingaman battle Sambash's minion Kolshizer and meet their Star Beasts, defeating Kolshizer before vowing to defeat the space pirates and return all their tribe to flesh and blood once again.
