Synopsis

Welcome to a world with an infinite number of parallel worlds. One day, such a myriad of complex and intricate worlds starts to fall into the clutches of an evil dynasty known as Tojitendo. The only world that remains is the one where our protagonist, Kaito Goshikida, lives. For some strange reason, the world where Kaito lives and the Kikai World where the Tojitendo are from have been merged together. However, it isn't long before the inhabitants of Kikaitopia, the Kikainoids, and the humans who live there, start to get along in harmony. It isn't long before the nefarious hands of Tojitendo reaches them. Their peaceful days are soon about to come to an end, just when one of these humans seeks to fight to defend the lives of both humans and Kikainoids alike. Kaito's first ally just so happens to be the cool-looking red old man that is Kikainoid Juran.

Plot

It was sudden. Including the world where Super Sentai is active, the innumerable "parallel worlds" that exist in this world disappear one after another. The evil dynasty Tojitendo, who controls the world of mechanical life form Kikainoid "Kikaitopia", conquered all parallel worlds in the mechanical gear Tojirgear. However, for some reason, only this last remaining world could not be confined and merged with a part of the territory of Kikaitopia. Then one month later, Kikaitopia has disappeared from the world, but the remaining Kikainoids and humans have gradually come to terms with each other. However, Tojitendo, who gave up the seal of this world, started invading. Kudakk, a Kikainoid soldier led by executive Barashitara, begins to attack humans.

A young man, Kaito Goshikida, who wants to achieve "the world's first" because of anything, decides to fight Tojitendo. Then, the door to the secret lab that was sleeping in the basement of the candy cafe "Colorful" run by his grandmother, Yatsude Goshikida, opens. His parents, who were researchers, left behind items to fight as Kikai Sentai Zenkaiger.

During the first battle, Kaito meets Juran, a humanoid who helped a child who was late to escape. Kaito, who feels that Juran is a kikanoid with a heart of justice, asks him to fight Tojitendo together. Kaito and Juran are then encountered by Barashitara, Kudaiter and an army of Kudakks. After receiving a second Geartlinger, Juran proceeds to one-shot a kudakk before Kaito tells him how to use a Geartlinger properly. Both Kaito and Juran transform into Zenkaizer and Zenkai Juran respectively. Using the hero side of the Sentai Gear to wipe out Kudakks with the powers of Zyuohger and Ninninger, Zenkaizer faces against Kudaiter, and Juran, who has become huge, faces against Kudaitest, as Juran Tyranno. After defeating both Kudaiter and Kudaitest respectively, Kaito was happy to have achieved the world's first thing, but this time a huge mushroom appeared in the town with people and kikainoids having mushrooms on their heads, leaving the trio shocked.

Elements/Homages to Super Sentai

  • The scene where Kaito's Kikaitakoyaki meal is ruined by Tojitendo's invasion is a homage to the first episode of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger, where the Gokaigers' lunch at Snack Safari was ruined by the Zangyack's attack.
  • The usage of Zyuohger and Ninninger refer to both previous Sentai being the most recent to celebrate the anniversary of the franchise.
  • Humans and Kikainoids panicking at their first contact with each other pays homage to the reaction of humans and Zyumans under the unison Zyuland in the final episode of Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger.
  • Zenkaizer using the Instinct Awakened powers of Zyuoh Eagle is referred to the fact that they are both leaders and the only human member of their own core teams.
  • Before unleashing his Ninninger based attack, Juran says Takaharu's catchphrase, "I'm on fire~!" (えてきた~! Moete kitā!). This is a homage of Sambaba from Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger, another character portrayed by Juran's voice actor,his war cry while performing his fire attack.

Errors

  • In the opening sequence, when Magine and Vroon are shown, the numbers that flash with their appearance are in the incorrect order with Magine having a 30 and Vroon having a 29. That error was fixed in the next episode.

Notes

  • This is the only episode where a Kikainoid Zenkaiger fights a giant enemy simply by fighting as an enlarged opponent. This also the only episode where a Kikainoid Zenkaiger uses a non-personal Sentai gear directly. This distinction would not occur until a few episodes later.
  • JuranTyrano propelling himself with fire breath is a reference to Godzilla doing a similar technique in Godzilla vs. Hedorah.
