He tells them in dismay that there was a bag with his precious engagement ring inside. It is his girlfriend's birthday, but they misplaced the bag. The owner is depressed, he says how important the ring is. Nanami and Yousuke go in search.

They pause when they see the Goraijer on a walkway, but Yousuke says furiously that he hasn't time for them, he's got to go find someone. Nanami calls her boss, who wants to know why not. The two continue their search through every bookstore. But the girl is right across the road from them. They tear off to catch up with her, but unfortunately Higerappa finds her first. Red and Blue transform. Kouta is called by Oboro. They fight the Magerappa, but then a horde of dancing hypnotized people with mustaches come to them. Yellow arrives. They don their weapons. They vanish, leaving straw people with their suits. They do their roll call with scarves and face the monster. Nanami and Yousuke bawl out the Higerappa for interfering in someone's proposal. Kouta, out of the loop, keeps protesting that he doesn't get what they're talking about. The four ninja streak to battle outside. Red becomes a little toy fighter plane to go against him. Nanami flips in circles, slashing at the monster. The two are proud of themselves, but Yellow feels left out. They defeat him with the Sonic Gadget. Wendinu sends down the scroll and the monster is made huge. Senpuujin is formed. Gorai Stag blasts them. The Goraijer make the Gouraijin. Oboro hurries with their new weapon. The Goraijer attack with Plant Axe. Caught between them and Higerappa, our trio are feeling more than a bit nervous.

The Goraijer retreat from the field. Furabijou and Chuuzubo watch from the Centipede. People are released from the Jakanja's spell. The Hurricanger collect the engagement ring. They replace it with a bag of cookies for the girl. They get back to the bakery, but it's closed. They go hunting for the owner. He is in the park with Reiko, apologizing for not having a present for her. But she doesn't care. She's just enjoying being with him. A little parachute floats down with the ring.
