The Yearning for Saya (憧れのサヤ Akogare no Saya) is the thirty-third episode of Seijuu Sentai Gingaman. It features a crucial turning point involving the process of Daitanix's revival that will ultimately lead to the final showdown with the Spectral Empress Iliess.
Saya tries to deal with a boy trying to act cool to win her heart as Illies sends her little brother in a desperate attempt to revive Daitanix with sorrow.
Illies sends her younger brother to gather the sorrow of humans using his Masks of Sorrow. The male Ginga Warriors are all hit by the monsters spell, leaving Saya to go on a quest to find a magic fruit that will temporarily restore them to normal long enough to defeat the monster.
