EDIT
The Dazzling Adventurer (Mabayuki Bōkensha)
AIRED:
Makino presents the Boukengers with the newly completed GouGou Changer and shows them the new GouGou Vehicles – GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider and GouGou Police. Akashi decides to give the GouGou Changer to Eiji but as they talk, Gaja appears with the resurrected Ashu, powered up into Questers. The Boukengers are defeated and Eiji's khakkhara staff broken. Back at the SGS, Eiji goes mad and attacks the Boukengers. To find out why, they visit Eiji's house and see a woman in a mirror. She is Eiji's mother, an Ashu, who tells them that without his staff, Eiji's Ashu half with take over. Eiji escapes the SGS only to run into Akashi who puts the GouGou Changer on him and gives him the SGS Sniper, telling him it has the same power as his staff. The Questers attack but Eiji joins the Boukengers and transforms into BoukenSilver and defeats the Questers. Akashi tells him that he lied about the Sniper – it was Eiji who suppressed his Ashu side. However, Eiji runs away…moreless

  • What I've been waiting for.

    Sixth heroes have become a staple of Super Sentai over the years, and Boukenger is no different. Eiji ditiches his role as Watcher of the Ashu and dons the GouGou Changer to become the Dazzling Adventurer BoukenSilver. While BoukenSilver's suit is a bit gawdy in silver, black, blue and orange, his weapon, a metal detector, is novel. I also like his GouGou Vehicles, which we only see on a screen here, GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider and GouGou Police. These are nicely based on emergency vehicles as opposed to construction/exploration like the other GouGou Vehicles. We'll see what they can do later on. Gaja's resurrecting the Ashu in the previous episode has created the Questers, even more powerful Ashu that can disrupt the Boukenger's powers. Fortunately, BoukenSilver isn't affected and defeats them in a fun action scene. We end on Eiji running off, his Ashu side having surfaced...moreless
  • The tradition continues with Super Sentai...

    It was great seeing Tatakoa Eiji don the powers of BoukenSilver. A great moment indeed. If you notice a short while after he morphs, you can see two shots of his helmet. One is silvery, while the other is not. We get to see his debut of the SGS sniper and detect mode against the ashu clan. Once he had given those ashu guys somethignt to cry about, Eiji become doubtful on joining the team, after remembering his father\'s past. That\'s where the episode ends.



    It was great seeing the Zyuranger segment again! Even Eiji\'s talk on Burai.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Makino: It's finally complete. (hands Akashi a box)
      Akashi: (opening the box) This is GouGou Changer?
      Makino: (pointing to the screen) And that is GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider, GouGou Police. SGS's new plan to use Precious technology for humanity is advancing. That is the SGS Rescue Project.
      Akashi: The equipment is for fighting calamities or villains.
      Voice: We asked Red to transfer to it.
      Masumi: So that's what that quitting Boukenger nonsense was about.
      Akashi: No. I still think of nothing more than adventures. Sorry for worrying you.
      Voice: SGS Rescue is on hold for now, since Red refused.
      Akashi: Mr. Voice, there is someone I would like to have this GouGou Changer.

    • Akashi: Eiji Takaoka!
      Eiji: Oh. You. You want something? I am busy. (Akashi holds up the GouGou Changer) What is that?
      Akashi: It's GouGou Changer. Takaoka, become a Boukenger.
      Eiji: Eh!?
      Akashi: Become a Boukenger and find your own treasure.
      Eiji: What are you talking about? I am still journeying to find the Ashu.
      Akashi: So that is why you adventure?
      Eiji: It's not an adventure! I said it was my mission. Defeating the Ashu is my mission.
      Akashi: I supposed you'd say that. Mission. Right?

    • Gaja: Come onto the stage... Quester!
      (Gai and Rei transform)
      Eiji: Not possible.
      Gai: The Furious Demon God. Quester Gai!
      Rei: The Grand Beast. Quester Rei!
      Masumi: Quester... you say!?
      Gaja: A Quester is a searcher. They are the ultimate team for obtaining all Precious.

    • Gaja: How do you find the power of the Goadom Engine?
      Akashi: Goadom Engine!?
      Gaja: The Precious I had nearly stolen, Girodana's notes. But once I, the grand Arch Priest Gaja see something, I never forget it. I understood the basis of the Parallel Engine, so I created the Anti-Parallel Engine.
      Akashi: What!?
      Gaja: That is what the Goadom Engine is. And I put it in their bodies... creating the Questers.

    • Gai: And this Quester body! It's far more powerful than your AccelSuits.
      Rei: Furthermore the Goadom Engine's wavelength interferes with the power from the Parallel Engine to your suits.
      Sakura: So that's why the AccelSuits are so heavy!

    • (Eiji attacks the Questers with his staff, but they are unaffected)
      Eiji: How!? This khakkhara is what the Ashu most hate! It should stop your movements... It has the power to seal 100 demons!
      Gai: You sure are slow. Like I said, this body is no longer Ashu!
      Rei: We are no longer Ashu. We are Quester.

    • Kei: I am Ashu. I'm called Kei. Eiji Takaoka's... mother.
      Akashi: Eiji Takaoka's father was human, right? An Ashu watcher.
      Kei: We shared a forbidden love. Is Eiji okay?
      Souta: He suddenly went mad.
      Kei: The khakkhara. He lost it didn't he? That khakkhara is used to seal the Ashu. That's why if the khakkhara is destroyed, the Ashu blood in Eiji is released and he turns into an Ashu. I see. You fear that boy.
      Natsuki: Then is there no way to return him to normal?
      Kei: Eiji does not turn into a monster just because of his Ashu blood. That boy...

    • Masumi: It's decided. Takaoka cannot become a Boukenger.
      Natsuki: But... there's a way for him to not become a monster.
      Sakura: Still... it's too dangerous if the probability isn't zero.
      Natsuki: Well no one knows anything about Natsuki. Maybe I'm dangerous. And Masumi is a former thief.
      Masumi: So... Souta was a spy! And Sakura was in the Special Forces.

    • (Akashi puts the GouGou Changer on Eiji's wrist and gives him the SGS Sniper)
      Eiji: What are you trying to do!?
      Sakura: Chief. There's only one GouGou Changer.
      Akashi: It will let you use this SGS Sniper.
      Eiji: What is this piece of junk!?
      Akashi: SGS has analyzed your khakkhara and put the same power in this SGS Sniper. With this you will not become an Ashu.
      Eiji: What!?
      Akashi: Seems you have Ashu blood in you. But you said... fighting Ashu is your mission. Then fight the Ashu in yourself.

    • Eiji: I... and Takaoka... Eiji Takaoka! An Ashu watcher! (flips open the GouGou Changer) GouGou Changer! Start Up! (Eiji transforms into BoukenSilver) This is...
      Akashi: The Dazzling Adventurer! BoukenSilver!

    • Makino: GouGou Changer is connected to the new Vehicles which use Neo Parallel Engines. That power supply is not affected by the Goadom Engine.

    • Eiji: (on the SGS Sniper) How mysterious. So this is the same as my khakkhara.
      Akashi: That was a lie.
      Eiji: A lie!?
      Akashi: SGS Sniper does not have the ability to stop your Ashu blood.
      Eiji: But... I didn't become an Ashu. Why?
      Akashi: You hated the Ashu blood in you. That powerful hatred awakened the Ashu blood in your heart.
      Eiji: Heart? No!
      Akashi: You used your own power to suppress the monster inside you. You are not an Ashu. You're our comrade.
      Eiji: Comrade?
      Akashi: Let's adventure together.

    • Akashi: Today's Super Sentai is…
      Boukengers: (together) Kyoryuu Sentai ZyuRanger!
      Sakura: In 1992, the legendary warriors were revived.
      Souta: They were revived from 170,000,000 years ago, the dinosaur era.
      Natsuki: They bought and sealed the witch Bandora.
      Masumi: Roar! Howling Cannon!
      Boukengers: (together) Next time also…
      Eiji: (interrupting with an image of DragonRanger) And for the first time there was a sixth hero. Watch next time!

  • NOTES (22)

    • With the addition of BoukenSilver, the Boukenger colour scheme matches that of Denji Sentai MegaRanger.

    • The SGS Rescue Project is SGS's attempt to use the technology they have gained from Precious to save lives as well as fight the Negative Syndicate. To this end, the GouGou Changer, BoukenSilver and the GouGou Vehicles GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider and GouGou Police were created. Akashi was initially approached to join the project, presumably as BoukenSilver, but refused, placing the project on hold until a new candidate could be found.

    • Unlike GouGou Vehicles 1-10, GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider and GouGou Police use Neo-Parallel Engines, making them and BoukenSilver immune to the interference caused by the Goadom Engines.

    • Akashi mentions that the GouGou Changer, of which there is only one, will allow Eiji to use the SGS Sniper. Presumably the SGS Sniper is programmed to only respond to the wearer of the GouGou Changer.

    • The computer display of BoukenSilver is similar to the one of BoukenBlue from Task 4, but has a diagram of GouGou Fire labelled "Vehicle No. 11 GoGo Fire" with the "GoGo Converter" indicated alongside an image of BoukenSilver.

    • Although Makino says that the GouGou Changer is connected to all three Rescue GouGou Vehicles, the computer display indicates that BoukenSilver gets his power from GouGou Fire alone.

    • This episode ends with a trailer for GouGou Sentai Boukenger The Movie: The Greatest Precious.

    • Mami Higashiyama, who plays Kei here, previously appeared as Miku Imamura/MegaPink in Denji Sentai MegaRanger.

    • First appearance of Quester Gai and Quester Rei, the powered up versions of the Ashu Gai and Rei.

    • As their bodies are no longer Ashu, Eiji's khakkhara staff no longer works on them. Under normal circumstances, it would be able to seal 100 demons.

    • As well as the two Goadom Engines inside Gai and Rei, Gaja also built another, far larger version for use in mecha.

    • Gaja reveals to the Boukengers that he has revived the Ashu Gai and Rei as the more powerful Questers as shown at the end of the previous episode. Gaja does not control the Questers however as they still act of their own accord.

    • Kei, Eiji's mother, was Ashu (although she looks human). Eiji's father, a Watcher like himself, shared a forbidden love with Kei. Their child, Eiji, has Ashu blood, which was usually kept at bay by the khakkhara staff he always carried. With the staff's destruction, Eiji's Ashu blood sends him mad.

    • Kei's appearing only in mirrors may be related to all the Ashu being sealed in the Mirror of Demons. How she is able to communicate from wherever she is is unknown.

    • First appearance of Kei and Karato Takaoka, Eiji's mother and father.

    • The Scope Shot is shown to feature an electrified wire for immobilizing enemies.

    • The Goadom Engine is Gaja's version of the Parallel Engine used by SGS to power the Boukengers and the GouGou Vehicles. He describes it as an "Anti-Parallel Engine" due to the interference it causes between the Boukenger's Parallel Engines and their AccelSuits.

    • Gaja was able to build the Goadom Engines using the knowledge he acquired from his quick look at the Manuscript of Leon Giordana in Task 11.

    • This is the first episode in which the AccelTector and Dual Crusher are not used since their debut in Task 7.

    • 30 Sentai Encyclopedia: Kyouryuu Sentai ZyuRanger.

    • This is the last time in which the Boukengers appear in DaiBouken's cockpit during the Sentai lookback segments. In all future segments, Eiji will join the others in the SGS salon.

    • First appearance of BoukenSilver, the GouGou Changer and SGS Sniper. It is also the first appearances of GouGou Vehicles 11, 12 and 13; GouGou Fire, GouGou Aider and GouGou Police, although they will not see action until the next episode.
