Episode Summary

The Showbiz World I Longed For (Akogare no Geinō-kai)
The famous actor Tanbara Toshio finishes a scene. Sakura is uncover as his assistant, but quickly starts shouting at him when he gets fussy. She is there to locate Tanbara's ring, which contains the Stone of Prosperity Precious. Every 100 years, the Stone explodes making it very dangerous. Sakura is to temporarily switch the ring with a fake and stop the explosion. Eiji sees Ryuoun in the city and attacks, but he was only interested in the TV character Denbe's costume. Meanwhile, Sakura gets roped into interviewing Tanbara, which doesn't initially go well either. Natsuki realizes that Denbe is actually a Jaryuu as Sakura discovers that the ring was a fake. Tanbara keeps the real one hidden, but wears it to do an advert with Denbe. Denbe however steals the ring but Sakura manages to prevent the explosion just in time. The Boukengers arrive, eventually destroying Denbe using DaiBouken.moreless

  • Lights... camera... explosion!

    A fairly funny episode but with a serious story underneath concerning the Precious which explodes once every 100 years. Sakura is sent to gain the trust of an old actor who has the Precious. It's nice seeing he out of her comfort zone once again, this time as Tanbara's aide and later, his interviewer. She seems to have learnt from her past experiences and throws herself into the role. The monster this time, Denbe, based on a TV mascot, is an unsual one and it's funny seeing the Boukengers fighting this cute pink dragon creature. It was also nice to see the return of DaiBouken after a few episodes. All in all, a good episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Manager: Hurry up, trainee. If the timing of the tea isn't good, Tanbara will be in a bad mood! Be sure to properly act as his manager! You want to be in the entertainment industry, right?
      Sakura: Yes. For now that is.
      Manager: What are you doing!?

    • Manager: Hand it to him within two seconds of entering the waiting room. You have to do your job quickly. If he gets angry, you're out.
      Sakura: I understand. I will do a perfect job of it.
      (Tanbara walks in and Sakura gets the tea to him in time)
      Sakura: Good work! Your oolong tea.
      Tanbara: Not over there.
      Sakura: Either direction is the same, right? The timing was perfect.
      Tanbara: Is a trainee like you defying me?
      Sakura: Right now, I didn't make a mistake.

    • Sakura: This ring is a Precious?
      Akashi: Yes. Seems he obtained it on vacation in India for 5,000,000. But in actuality, it has the Stone of Prosperity in there.
      Voice: Every 100 years, the Stone of Prosperity releases an explosion of energy. In that moment, it reacts to chemicals in the air and destroys a radius of several kilos.
      Masumi: Hey, that's a pretty dangerous treasure.
      Voice: Yeah. And that dangerous moment is coming in three days.
      Sakura: Then we should explain the reason and collect it for just that time.
      Souta: Yes, but... the Stone of Prosperity's energy can be used to rule the world.
      Akashi: We can't let them know such a dangerous fact.
      Voice: That's why we want to secretly switch it with a replica while the real is put in a special liquid that prevents an explosion.

    • Akashi: This is a special mission. While posing as a trainee manager, approach this actor. Temporarily switch the rings and prevent the explosion.
      Voice: The problem is that Tanbara is said to be a fussy, old man in the entertainment industry. When he feels like it, he can be very stubborn and selfish. It's not going to be straight forward.
      Eiji: Not a job for me.
      Souta: Actually, there's an ideal candidate for this. Among us, there's one that's close to Tanbara's tastes.
      Sakura: Me?

    • Akashi: Ryuoun! What are you after?
      Ryuoun: More pests!? And I only have three hours too!
      Masumi: Seems he's after the Stone of Prosperity? Probably using that TV station vehicle.

    • Manager: Tanbara has a terrible habit. This is a list for dealing with them.
      Sakura: (reading the manual) "It's not a joke, so sleep". "That mansion is in the way, isn't it? It can't be helped". What is this?
      Manager: Puns! Tanbara's speciality puns. They're all bad, but if the reaction is bad your career is over. That's why we set up the exemplary list of reactions for those jokes. All 1054 of them.
      Sakura: I cannot comprehend this.
      Manager: You don't need to comprehend it! Learn all of them! Until then, stay away from Tanbara!

    • Natsuki: (seeing the Denbe logo) Huh?
      Masumi: What is it?
      Natsuki: Denbe wears shoes, right?
      Masumi: What are you talking about?
      Natsuki: Just now, the suit in the truck was barefoot and had claws.

    • Sakura: You're much too funny!
      Tanbara: No no. You bring out the puns in me. I greatly admire your youth.
      Sakura: No. That's not so. Thank you. Then as a reward, can I put on that wonderful ring for a moment?
      Tanbara: You've got to be joking! Like I'd let you lay a finger on this.

    • Denbe: A Jaakuryuu born to look like Panpari Ekiden's mascot, Denbe. I will show you my power!

    • Denbe: Well you're not cute at all! You'll never be a bride like that.
      Sakura: Mind your own business!

    • Makino: Everyone, Numbers 1 to 5 repairs are complete.
      Masumi: It's finally repaired?
      Makino: Seeing Sakura work hard in the ill-suited entertainment world also gave me spirit.

    • (GouGou Voyager arrives)
      Akashi: Silver.
      Eiji: I've been wanting to drive this.

    • Sakura: This time: Robo number two!
      Boukengers: (together) Start Up!
      Eiji: When Flashman's FlashKing was defeated, the giant trailer appeared. FlashTitan.
      Natsuki: It separated and transformed into TitanBoy.
      Souta: When combined with FlashTitan, it became GreatTitan.
      Eiji: The beginning of the history of number two robos!
      Masumi: (in GoGo Formula's cockpit) FlashPan TitanBall.
      Akashi: That's wrong.
      Boukengers: (together) Look forward to the next one.

  • NOTES (14)

    • The Stone of Prosperity explodes once every 100 years due to the build up of oxidents with contact with the air. Submerging the Stone in a special liquid is the only way to prevent the explosion. This power is said to be able to rule the world.

    • Tanbara bought the Stone of Prosperity in India for 5,000,000 of an unspecified currency. It is unknown if he had the Stone mounted in the ring, or if it was done before.

    • As the Stone of Prosperity is privately owned property, the Boukengers cannot just collect it. Instead they must try to prevent the explosion without arousing suspicion about the Stone's true nature.

    • Akira Ishida, who voices Denbe here, would go on to voice Bae in the next Super Sentai series, JyuKen Sentai GekiRanger.

    • Some of Tanbara's 1054 favourite puns include:
      No 3 "Glad to be here. In Tokyo "Dome" City, shake hands with me".
      No 12 "It's not a joke, so sleep".
      No 13 "That mansion is in the way, isn't it? It can't be helped".
      No 253 "When you break your chopsticks in a Chinese restaurant, they go pe-kin".
      No 254 "The monkey is leaving (saru)".
      No 964 "Just imagine you're in Fukuiken. Your youth will pour through. Wakasa Harbour that is".
