Episode 22: Are You Prepared? The Witch is There (覚悟はいいかそこの魔女 Kakugo wa ī ka Soko no Majo) is the twenty-second episode of Mashin Sentai Kiramager. It features the full debut of Mashin Zabyun having previously appeared briefly in the flashback in the previous episode, the debut of King Express Zabyun and the final appearance of Numajo. It also marks the fourth episode of the Kanaema Stones story arc.
The Kiramagers have successfully defeated the Fishing Rod Jamen and retrieved the second Kanaema Stone. After returning to CARAT with the second stone in hand, Mabishina tells Takamichi that he isn't just her hero, he is everyone's hero. Just then projected onto the monitor, Kiramaizin's struggle against a Jamen Beast is shown as his sister's words start to sink heavily within Takamichi. Takamichi can't contain his emotions just when Mabushina suddenly collapses, as Yodonheim's symbol appears over her right eye. The only way to save Mabushina from her curse is to find the Aqua Kiramai Stone. However, the stone, which has the power to break the curse, has been neutralized by Numajo, the Witch. There is only one option left: to use the power of the Kanaema Stone in their possession to go to the past and capture Numajo before she has a chance to retrieve the stone for herself. However, as their intense battle against the giant Monster rages on, the Kiramagers must now face their most difficult mission ever.
Motorboat Basra is proved to be too powerful for Kiramaizin as the mecha combination is forced to be separated after getting beaten up. Fortunately for Kiramagers, Basra somehow decided to leave the battle field, giving the chance for the team to flee. Back to CARAT base, Muryou discovers another method to save Mabushina from the dark curse, and that is from the Aqua Kiramai Stone. Unfortunately, the stone is dormant and has yet to be restored after its previous battle against the witch, Numajo. And then, Muryou told the group the only way to restore the crystal is by going back to the past with the help of the second Kanaema Stone with twenty minutes of time limit and take a sample of the witch's poison to be analyzed to produce the cure. The group initially decided to have Takamichi go to the past, but Takamichi has thought further that he must stay to use GigantDriller as it's the only mecha capable of being used to fight against Basra when it returns. Because of that, Juru, Sena, and Tametomo are chosen to go to the past alongside Mashin Fire for the guider.
To avoid the future change impact, Tametomo makes a plan to distract King Oradin, Queen Mabuyuine, and the past Takamichi through a disguise before they encountered Numajo in order to give time for Juru to take the poison in her chalice. Meanwhile, Shiguru, Sayo, and Takamichi find Basra to be on stand by in a river. Sayo learns that Basra consumes small fishes to replenish its energy. Galza arrives alongside the foot soldiers to prevent them from destroying Basra. An angered Takamichi fights against Galza while the rests handle the troops. Unfortunately, the plan for both groups of Kiramager ends up as a failure with Juru unable to get the poisoned chalice because the witch is too strong for him and Takamichi unable to break through Galza's guard when the Basra wakes up and goes back in action now that it has fully recharged.
Sayo calls for Mashin Express to defeat Basra. But Basra is able to distract Sayo by passing through a tall building with Sayo stopped before getting caught in a crash, leaving an opening for Basra to fight back. Takamichi calls for GigantDriller for the underground battle, but the speed of Basra is faster, making GigantDriller unable to catch up to fight back and getting an ultimate defeat from a powerful eye laser attack from Basra. The team is in despair for a second before Juru arrives with the new Mashin Zabyun, surprising them all.
It is revealed that Juru has thought an alternative way to get the poison during the battle against Numajo by luring her to spray her poison onto his sword, allowing him to have her poison stick onto his sword and be analyzed. After the cure is founded, the Aqua Kiramai Stone is restored and transformed by Juru into a Mashin. Mashin Zabyun is fired up for action after its long slumber and immediately combines with Mashin Express as Juru immediately got the idea and drew the combination form, forming King Express Zabyun. Unfortunately, Takamichi is passed out because of the injuries and too tired to witness the fight. With the new King Express formation, Basra was unable to catch up with its speed and is completely beaten in strength, leading to its complete defeat.
Afterwards, Takamichi wakes up and asks about Mabushina's condition. Muryou answered that she has left them, saddening Takamichi only for a second because Muryou trolls him that she left them behind to meet Takamichi. Takamichi is happy that she is back at full health, so does Mabushina for seeing Takamichi has become the hero she wishes for. Takamichi promises that from there, he will full fledge himself for the team as he has nothing to be worried about anymore.
