Special Ops Sentai, Assemble![edit]

1 "Special Ops Sentai, Assemble!"
"Tokumei Sentai, Shūketsu seyo!" (特命戦隊、集結せよ!) 
Yasuko Kobayashi February 26, 2012
It is 2012 NCE. After receiving a special case, a young man named Hiromu Sakurada arrives to the city on the motorcycle mode of his Buddyloid Cheeda Nick. In the city, Ryuji Iwasaki and Yoko Usami of the Energy Management Center watch a group of men siphoning a tank of Enetron. Deducing them to be members of Vaglass, they crash through the window before transforming into Blue Buster and Yellow Buster, respectively, to fight two of the energy thieves, revealed to be Vaglass's android foot soldiers called Buglers. After taking out the Buglers, they go after the last energy thief, revealed to be a being named Enter, as he escapes them and infects a power shovel to create the Metaloid Shovelloid. At the Energy Management Center, a new member to the Special Operations Unit named Miho Nakamura arrives prior to Shovelloid's attack on the city being detected in the city's Miyawa district. As the Buddyloid Usada Lettuce explains to Miho what their branch and the Vaglass are, Ryuji and Yoko head out to face the Metaloid. Alerted to the countdown to the arrival of a Vaglass Megazord, Blue Buster and Yellow Buster are unable to stop the Metaloid in time as the Shovelzord appears. Things seem hopeless as the Megazord attacks the Enetron Facility until, after seeing his hospitalized sister about making his decision to fight for everyone's sake, Hiromu contacts the Energy Management Center to launch the CB-01 Cheetah. Transforming into Red Buster, Hiromu and Nick enter the CB-01 and transform the car into the Megazord Go-Buster Ace to fight the Shovelzord. Using its Buster Animal mode to catch its opponent off guard, Go-Buster Ace destroys Shovelzord as Blue Buster and Yellow Buster shutdown the Shovelloid.[1] 

A Promise Made 13 Years Ago[edit]

2 "A Promise Made 13 Years Ago"
"Jū-san Nen Mae no Yakusoku" (13年前の約束) 
Yasuko Kobayashi March 4, 2012
Using the GT-02 and the RH-03 to carry out the debris remains of the Shovelzord for analysis to counter the Vaglass, Ryuji tries to calm Yoko down about Hiromu getting special treatment while he reports to Kuroki and remembers him as his father's assistant. Suddenly, the Enetron Monitoring System alerts them as the Go-Busters head to an Enetron gas station in the Kazami district. While Hiromu fills Nick's Enetron tank, Ryuji follows the trail to the back of a nearby building where Enter is. However, with Hiromu freezing at the sight of a chicken and Yoko running low on candy, Ryuji is forced to deal with Enter on his own as Blue Buster while Usada explains to Miho the Go-Busters' Weakpoints. Luckily, finding a candy in her skirt pocket, and Nick carrying Hiromu away from the chicken, Yoko arrives before Enter falls back. As Enter proceeds to create the Metaloid Burnerloid, Kuroki reveals to Miho the events occurred thirteen years ago that created Messiah and forced his friends, Hiromu's parents, to sacrifice themselves to stop the entity from conquering the world. However, knowing that Messiah would return, Hiromu's father installed an Anti-Metavirus within Hiromu, Yoko, Ryuji, and their Buddyloids so they can fight the virus. Alerted to a Vaglass Megazord countdown, Hiromu reminds Yoko and Ryuji of the promise they made over a decade ago to get their families back before intercepting Burnerloid. Managing to destroy Burnerloid four minutes before Megazord arrival, the Go-Busters return to the Energy Management Center to redeploy in their Buster Machines before the Burnerzord appears. While GT-02 and RH-03 deal in getting civilians to safety and putting the fire out, the CB-01 destroys two Bugzords before becoming Go-Buster Ace to shutdown the Megazord. Through the Go-Busters bask in their victory, the moment is ruined when Hiromu offended Yoko.[2] 

GT-02 Animal, Deploy![edit]

3 "GT-02 Animal, Deploy!"
"Jī Tī Zero Tsū Animaru, Shutsugeki!" (GT-02アニマル、出撃!) 
Yasuko Kobayashi March 11, 2012
After calming down Messiah to keep it from unknowingly destroying their transfer routes, Enter assumes the form of a doctor as he creates the Metaloid Needloid. Alerted to the Enetron leak, arriving to the Kadokura district and finding something not right about the hospital, the Go-Busters infiltrate and find the medical staff being turned into robots before being forced to fight them. They find Enter, who explains that causing humans to suffer is part of his directive. Finding they have forty-one minutes until Vaglass Megazord arrival, Ryuji sees Hiromu provoking Yoko about her age before she uses his Weakpoint on him. The three eventually find a doctor being chased by Buglers, assuming their Go-Buster forms to save him. The doctor reveals that Needloid is using the Enetron to convert humans to the point of putting the patients in the ICU at risk. With thirty minutes left, overhearing Blue Buster's plan to restore the hospital's Enetron while the others deal with Needloid, Enter increases Bugler numbers while putting the hospital on lock down. Managing to make it out, Blue Buster proceeds to reach the GT-02 and his Buddyloid Gorisaki Banana while the others fight their way through the Buglers with Yellow Buster saving a little girl. Explaining to Hiromu that she is no longer the little girl who comforted years ago, he and Yoko reach an understanding with each other as they find Needloid and knock the Metaloid out of the hospital before destroying him. By that time, having the GT-02 assume Animal Mode to siphon Enetron from the tower for transport to the hospital, Blue Buster pilots his Buster Animal to evade the Needlezord as it attempts to steal the Enetron from the GT-02 prior to Go-Buster Ace showing up. With the GT-02 Gorilla making its way to the hospital to restore its Enetron supply, Go-Buster Ace manages to destroy Needlezord. With Hiromu and Yoko now having a full understanding of each other, they and Ryuji intend to fulfill the promise they all made years ago.[3] 

Special Ops and Determination[edit]

4 "Special Ops and Determination"
"Tokumei to Ketsui" (特命と決意) 
Yasuko Kobayashi March 18, 2012
Informed that the Buster Machines are being upgraded for better dealing with future Vaglass Megazord attacks, the Go-Busters are told that it is possible for them to enter subspace to confront Messiah. With this in mind, Hiromu and Yoko feel there is a chance of reuniting with their families, though Kuroki believes that they were not able to survive the transportation that sent Messiah out of their reality. Alerted to Enter being sighted at the Enetron Management Bureau's Tōma Branch, Yoko and Ryuji express some concern in relation to Hiromu being the most affected by the event 13 years ago. Arriving at the Enetron Management Bureau complex, they find Enter eating a pizza, seemingly waiting for them, before he creates the Metaloid Cutterloid in front of them, and also revealing that a new model of Vaglass Megazord is being prepared and will be arriving in eight minutes. With Enter taking his leave, Cutterloid battles the Go-Busters as they transform to fight him, leading them on a wild goose chase that gets Red Buster wounded. Realizing Cutterloid is only bait, and how Metaloids function as beacons for their Megazord counterparts, Hiromu has Cheeda Nick protect both the Enetron tank in Tōma and the another beyond the mountains as potential targets. Though Ryuji asks him if he intends to be reckless, considering what the commander said to them, as it appears Hiromu intends to intercept the Megazord. Hiromu touched the two by pointing out that there may still be a chance that their families loaded the Anti-Metavirus into themselves as well and they may still be alive. However, Cutterloid refuses to allow them to meddle in affairs as Blue Buster and Yellow Buster hold the robot off seconds before the arrival of the Cutterzord. Entering the CB-01 Cheetah and turning it into Go-Buster Ace, Red Buster battles the Vaglass Megazord. However, this new type of Megazord has been outfitted with defenses that allow it to overwhelm Go-Buster Ace, and it manages to siphon the Enetron and transmit it to Messiah. As Gorisaki Banana and Usada Lettuce pilot the GT-02 Gorilla and the RH-03 Rabbit on their own to support, Blue Buster and Yellow Buster scrap the Cutterloid. In a gamble, having had Cheeda Nick restore some of Go-Buster Ace's functions by shutting down the life support system, Red Buster manages to shut down the Cutterzord as Enter takes his leave. After helping Hiromu back, they learn that Kuroki manipulated them in an attempt to track the location of the Vaglass's base of operations, expressing his resolve to put an end to Messiah by any means.[4] 

Dangerous Overheated Rampage![edit]

5 "Dangerous Overheated Rampage!"
"Kiken na Netsu Bōsō!" (キケンな熱暴走!) 
Yasuko Kobayashi March 25, 2012
Watching the Cutterzord about to be analyzed, the Go-Busters receive a review of the three known Vaglass Megazord types being nothing more than shells, before they receive a mission to help transport an Enetron tank convoy to Nishizawa district. However, Enter creates the high speed Metaloid Tireloid to chase after the Enetron on foot. While Red Buster manages to save the truck by blasting a tire that Tireloid's special beam attack made go awry, Blue Buster and Yellow Buster fight Tireloid and the Buglers before the former uses his Super Power to break the Metaloid's hands. However, his Weakpoint takes over, and he becomes an entirely different person who attacks friend and foe alike. Blue Buster mercilessly tortures Tireloid before destroying him, and is about to attack Yoko when he overheats and passes out. Gorisaki cools the unconscious Ryuji down, and Yoko breaks down in tears from what just happened. However, Kuroki contacts her and orders her to meet up with Hiromu. Learning that Ryuji is out of commission for the time being, and a Vaglass Megazord is coming in six minutes, Hiromu and Nick are left on their own to oversee the convoy until Yoko joins them. As Yellow Buster accompanies the convoy in the RH-03 Rabbit, Red Buster intercepts the Tirezord in the CB-01. But when his Weak Point takes effect, Go-Buster Ace is frozen as the RH-03 Rabbit is forced to hold off the Tirezord before Blue Buster comes to her aid in the GT-02 Gorilla. After accepting his apology, Yellow Buster has the RH-03 assume Animal Mode to kick Tirezord back from Go-Buster Ace as Red Buster regains mobility to destroy the Megazord. As the Enetron convoy reaches its destination, something odd is occurring in the hangar where the Cutterzord is stationed.[5] 

Combine! Go-Buster Oh[edit]

6 "Combine! Go-Buster Oh"
"Gattai! Gōbasutāō" (合体!ゴーバスターオー) 
Yasuko Kobayashi April 1, 2012
After failing a simulation that would combine the Go-Buster Ace with the GT-02 Gorilla and the RH-03 Rabbit for the twentieth time, Hiromu apologizes for hesitating in the formation as Ryuji suggests that maybe it is not the younger member's skills that are the issue. Later, while wondering if he should go faster, Nick reminds Hiromu how he and Ryuji met with the latter teaching him to throw rocks across the lake. Though Nick explains that Ryuji may know the problem, Hiromu sees no need to ask for help. Suddenly, the headquarters' alarms ring as Enter, having used a fragment from the Cutterzord to find an entrance in the Ijima district, invades the Energy Management Center's headquarters with the newly created Sprayloid to make his way to Hangar 7 where Cutterzord is being held. Having the Buglers hold the Go-Busters at bay, Enter finds the Cutterzord and hacks into the EMC mainframe to reactivate the Megazord, while warning another will be coming in nine minutes. As the Go-Busters arrive, Cutterzord's projectiles seal the blast doors as Enter enters the hangar's self-destruct sequence before leaving the Go-Busters to die with a suicidal Sprayloid. However, Blue Buster throws Red Buster out of the hangar so he use the Go-Buster Ace to get his teammates out while they destroy Sprayloid. Though the summoned Sprayzord interferes with the Go-Buster Ace's attack on the hangar, Blue Buster and Yellow Buster escape in time. Having realized that he must trust his teammates as they trust him, Red Buster combines the Buster Machines to form Go-Buster Oh to deal with the Cutterzord and Sprayzord, destroying the Vaglass Megazords with the Dimension Crash attack.[6]

Nobuhiro Mouri April 8, 2012
After the formation of Go-Buster Oh, the Buster Machines are going under maintenance. But during the repairs, the Go-Busters meet a klutzy rookie mechanic named Mamoru Koyama who has just joined the maintenance team for Go-Buster Ace much to Hiromu's dismay as he talks about the newbie's unprofessional conduct. Later, the Go-Busters are alerted to Enter's arrival in the Hayashibara district as he creates Denshaloid with a Vaglass Megazord prepared to be transported into the city within thirty minutes. As the Go-Busters arrive, Enter reveals his intent to use Denshaloid to gather enough Enetron to produce more Metaloids and in turn get more Vaglass Megazords deployed. After taking out the Buglers blocking their path, the Go-Busters learn that Go-Buster Ace has suffered an Enetron malfunction as Hiromu draws back and learns that it was Koyama's fault for not properly checking the charging system. Later, Cheeda Nick tries to convince his partner that Koyama is not all bad, but Hiromu is still upset. Blue Buster and Yellow Buster intercept Denshaloid and derail it so it can run into Red Buster who fights it before he suddenly freezes at the sight of a chicken-shaped weather vane. Luckily, the others arrive to destroy the weather vane and enable him to catch up the Metaloid. The three Go-Busters proceed to overwhelm Denshaloid before they destroy him. By that time, the Denshazord arrives with two Bugzords to assume a train formation to get to an Enetron tank. As the GT-02 Gorilla and the RH-03 Rabbit battle the Vaglass Megazords, Red Buster returns to the hangar where he finds Koyama repairing Go-Buster Ace and he apologizes to him. With the Megazord's repairs complete, Hiromu tells Koyama to not let his failure get to him, and Koyama realizes that his fight against the Vaglass is being part of the maintenance crew. Red Buster deploys Go-Buster Ace to form Go-Buster Oh to counter the Vaglass Megazords' train formation. After taking out the Bugzords, Go-Buster Oh destroys the Denshazord. Later, after returning to the hangar, Hiromu leaves Go-Buster Ace in Koyama's hands.[7]

After piloting the GT-02 Gorilla to get in some target practice, Ryuji meets with the others as Kuroki reveals that Enter has been sighted at the Megazord Development Facility and is likely after the blueprints to a new Buster Machine. When the Go-Busters intercept Enter when he poses as a cop during an uproar he caused, he uses Buglers to cover him as he tries to reach the blast doors. However, after failing to get through in time, Enter escapes as Ryuji meets his old high school friend Kazuya. Kazuya takes the Go-Busters to the blueprints of the new Buster Machine BC-04, with the group realizing that Enter may be after them to fortify the Vaglass forces. Ryuji reveals that he and Kazuya were both interested in Megazords as high school students, but after the incident 13 years ago, Ryuji was forced to give up his dream. Soon after, the EMC staff are alerted to the creation of Drilloid and contact the Go-Busters of a Vaglass Megazord's arrival within three minutes. Realizing that Enter has an inside man, Ryuji decides to stay behind as the others enter the Buster Machines to deal with the enemy Megazord. However, though seeming to be a no-show, Red Buster realizes their enemy is underground. By that time, and realizing Kazuya has been helping Enter, Ryuji confronts Kazuya when he finds him copying the blueprint data into a memory drive and is shocked to find how disillusioned his friend became just before Drilloid arrives and downloads the data with Ryuji forced to destroy the computer. However, Drilloid notices the memory drive with Blue Buster holding the Metaloid off as Kazuya runs off with the item. Sadly, as Blue Buster destroys Drilloid, Kazuya's memory drive is stolen by Enter and fails his mission. Coming to the others' aid in the GT-02 Gorilla, Blue Buster joins the others in forming Go-Buster Oh and forcing the Drillzord to the surface so they can destroy it.

Tracking Usada's signal, the Go-Busters track the Buddyloid to his location while, however, having hacked into the phone system, Enter overhears the ransom and decides to kidnap Usada for his agenda of utilizing the BC-04 blue prints. Using his Buglers to fend the Go-Busters off, Enter spirits Usada off while leaving a bomb to cover his tracks. After taking the kidnappers to the proper authorities, the Go-Busters learn that Enter blocked Usada's signal as he hacks the TV airwaves to deliver his demands for 20,000 Enetron within the hour or he will detonate the bomb on Usada. As the Energy Management Center is washing their hands on the matter, the Go-Busters are on their own with Yoko having an idea. Using a truck, with Morishita and Miho respectively posing as Hiromu and her, Yoko makes her move as Enter summons a pair of Bugzords from what remained of the Drillzord with the Go-Busters seemingly forced to deal with the Megazord. Inspecting the truck, Enter finds it filled with only water before seeing Yoko saving Usada. With Enter speeding up the detonation timer in response, with them arguing over whose safety is more important, Usada and Yoko admit their refusal to see the other die before the chain breaks and the Buddyloid is seemingly destroyed in the blast.

After taking out an army of Buglers, with Blue Buster's Weakpoint taking effect during the fight, the Go-Busters learn that the grunts are a distraction used by Enter so he enter the Sawatari district to steal a crate holding 500 tons of the metal alloy known as Deltanium 39 so he can build the BC-04. Realizing that using a Megazord to transport the alloy to Messiah is the next phase of Enter's plans, the Go-Busters are placed on standby. In the interim, Nick tries to get Hiromu to see his sister Rika's new art exhibition, but Hiromu refuses to go. Nick decides that it should be his job to try to square things out between the brother and sister, even though Rika despises him. Though he gets lost in near the Ōmae district, Nick finds Rika as he tries to convince her of the importance of Hiromu fighting Vaglass. However, believing that he and the EMC purposely drafted Hiromu to their case, she accuses him that all he wants to do is break her family up. Before he can say anything, Nick gets alerted of a Metaloid sighting with a Vaglass Megazord's arrival within 30 minutes. And on top of that, the Deltanium 39 crate is guarded by Meta-Cell infected humans. As the GT-02 prepares confront the Megazord, with the RH-03 attempting to get to the crate, Hiromu arrives to the building as Nick arrives with Rika, much to his dismay. Though she tries to convince him to quit being a Go-Buster, Hiromu ignores her in order to save a family with a young child and then tells her that he fights the Vaglass because it was his decision to join the Go-Busters. He leaves his sister to transform and enter a nearby building to stop the Deltanium 39 theft. Racing upstairs, Red Buster is confronted by the Metaloid Danganloid, as Enter speaks to him over an intercom to explain that the Metaloid was made just for fighting him. Danganloid manages to overpower Red Buster in a high speed battle, matching the Go-Buster's every move. Upon the Danganzord's arrival, as Nick explains to Rika of Hiromu's resolve to ensure no family ever suffers as they have by the Vaglass, Red Buster manages to use Danganloid's speed to destroy him as Yellow Buster knocks out the Meta-Cell infected people. Though Red Buster and Nick manage to save a Meta-Cell inflected boy, the Danganzord manages to transport the crate into subspace. With the mission over, Enter deletes the Meta-Cells just as he leaves. As Rika now understands her brother upon seeing the family reunited, Red Buster enters the CB-01 to join the fight. Forming Go-Buster Oh, the Go-Busters destroy the Danganzord. Hiromu and Nick try to track down Rika later, but they cannot find her, only to find a sketch book with a drawing the Sakurada family and an animalized Nick, Rika's way of accepting the Buddyloid into the family.[10]

Kento Shimoyama May 6, 2012
After the last time Ryuji's Weakpoint got the best of him, Gorisaki has created a safety device for his partner that will alert him of his body temperature. However, while cornering Enter when he is about to obtain Enetron, the safety device's warning signal disrupts team's concentration before Enter entangles him in his tendrils. But after seeing Blue Buster overheat, Enter decides to take his leave, much to everyone's confusion. Gorisaki frets over what happened as Nick and Usada try to assure him that Ryuji will not be mad at him. Although that is the case, even after his later attempt to modify the safety device with a cooling function, Gorisaki goes to the top of a building after seeing Usada and Nick being close with their human partners. Joined by Nick, Gorisaki confides in him that he is a bit jealous of him and Usada for having made such relationships with their partners while feeling that Ryuji is holding back his feelings. The two Buddyloids are soon alerted to a Vaglass Megazord sighting within seven minutes. Taking Gorisaki's device with him, Ryuji and the other Go-Busters arrive to the Kameno district where they are ambushed by the Metaloid Fanloid and his powerful wind gusts. After being informed of the Megazord's arrival within a minute, Red Buster enters Go-Buster Ace to battle the Fanzord while leaving his teammates to deal with Fanloid. After having Yellow Buster leave to aid Go-Buster Ace in the RH-03, only for her and Usada to get blown away, Blue Buster finds himself in a jam as his Weakpoint begins to manifest. By then, Enter reveals that he has studied Blue Buster's Weakpoint and has set this plan up to finish the Go-Buster off at his leisure once he loses consciousness. Refusing to allow it to happen, Gorisaki goes against orders to cover Blue Buster so he can damage the Metaloid's fan and destroy him. A mortified Enter teleports away as Gorisaki collapses from the strain from the Metaloid's attack. Screaming at his Buddyloid for doing such a stupid thing, Ryuji realizes that Gorisaki wanted him to open up to him. With the GT-02 Gorilla's arrival, Go-Buster Ace manages to destroy the Fanzord. Soon after, upon giving the device back to Gorisaki while expressing how annoying it is, Ryuji promises to be more open with Gorisaki about his feelings. Agreeing to do the same, Gorisaki mistakenly expresses of all Ryuji's character flaws before his partner chases the Buddyloid around with the others watching.[11]

"Hensō wa Osuki?" (変装はお好き?) 
Nobuhiro Mouri May 13, 2012
Since the incident with the Fanzord, Yoko has been going through simulation training to improve herself while Miho is astonished to find Yoko does nothing else but train and sleep. The Megazord Development Facility then contacts Kuroki of Vaglass's next move to obtain a crystal used for their Megazords' optics. Though the material of the ore can not manifest in Japan, such crystals are being brought into the country by Hong Kong pop idol Angie Sue, whom everyone realizes is the spitting image of Yoko. Three days later at the Rinto district, the Go-Busters assume positions around the conference for Angie's upcoming movie as they are alerted to a Metaloid with a Vaglass Megazord to appear in four hours and thirty minutes. Despite Yoko detecting the Metaloid nearby, the signal suddenly vanishes before Ryuji saves Angie from a crazed woman that Hiromu holds off. The woman turns out to be the Metaloid Copyloid as the confused Go-Busters fight him. However, managing to outrun the Go-Busters, Copyloid assumes a businessman's form to elude them. Realizing what has occurred and that the Metaloid will attack the conference in conjunction to the Megazord attack, the Go-Busters are forced to head for the conference. But Angie mentions that she wants to fulfill her dream of becoming an international star before Yoko insults her dreams. Upon learning that Angie's earrings were a gift from her mother, Yoko is astonished when she is asked by the actress if she has a dream of her own. By then, Ryuji comes up with a plan to counter Copyloid by having Yoko pose as the actress. While getting ready, and after talking with Hiromu and Ryuji about their dreams, Yoko admits to Angie that she has no dream of her own but she will defeat Vaglass to see that everyone's dreams will come true. As Red Buster enters Go-Buster Ace to battle the Copyzord once it arrives and copies his Megazord's form, Yoko proceeds to the conference before Copyloid makes his move. Kicking the Metaloid upside his head, Copyloid reverts to his true form as Yoko fights him off with Angie's manager covering the fight as a stunt performance. Managing to take one of the earrings, Copyloid runs away and gets the crystal to Enter. As Enter takes his leave with his creation attempting to get the other earring, Ryuji backs up Yoko as they assume their Go-Buster forms to destroy Copyloid while the real Angie attends her conference. Arriving to find Go-Buster Ace fighting its copy, Yellow Buster resolves to fire on both before the Copyzord returns to its true form. Forming Go-Buster Oh, the Go-Busters destroy the Vaglass Megazord. Later, though feeling lousy about losing the earring, Yoko learns that Angie sent her an e-mail expressing both her gratitude and a Nyutube video of Yoko fighting Copyloid, cheering her up, until Usada mistakenly insults her, causing everyone to chase after him.[12]

However, a Metaloid signal is detected nearby and forces the Go-Busters to intercept it, much to Usada's dismay. Finding Tubaloid, the Buddyloids help get the civilians to safety while the Go-Busters deal with the Buglers before they are alerted to a Vaglass Megazord coming in 2 minutes and 30 seconds, along with discovering that Kuroki is not in the base. As Red Buster heads off in the CB-01 to intercept the Tubazord, Blue Buster and a fired up Yellow Buster battle Tubaloid. However, though realizing both Tubaloid and the Tubazord are using weak attacks, the former being easily hurt by Blue Buster and the later being easily destroyed by Go-Buster Ace, Tubaloid escapes. While the others track down Tubaloid, after having Usada go on the rides, Yoko meets up with Hiromu before revealing to him the surprise she has in store for Nick and hints about a back-up for him and Ryuji. By then, Tubaloid makes his move again with Hiromu taking the hit meant for Yoko. After being alerted to another Metaloid being created with another Vaglass Megazord to appear in 28 minutes, the Go-Busters fight Tubaloid and the Buglers while Gorisaki takes Usada back to the base. Seeing Yellow Buster dodging Tubaloid's fanfare sound wave, Red Buster and Blue Buster realize that the Metaloid has been made to counter her abilities and destroy him before he completes his objective.

As Gorisaki proceeds to repair their Morphin Braces, Hiromu and Ryuji receive a message from Tubaloid 2 using Yoko's Morphin Brace to tell them not to interfere with the second Megazord or Yoko will die. As Tubaloid 2's location is revealed to be in the Shimatani district, and learning that the original Tubaloid's sound wave attack was part of a 2-phase attack with Tubaloid 2, Hiromu and Ryuji prepare to head out anyway. However, Nakamura demands them to come with her to see the tables Yoko set up for the Buddyloids, revealing that it is the day of their activation and that the surprise tour was more of a birthday tour. Assuring Nakamura that Yoko's life is a priority, and still having time, Hiromu and Ryuji make their way to Tubaloid 2's location to save Yoko. While Ryuji taking out the Bugler bodyguards, Hiromu poses as Enter to get close to the girl. Though seeing through his disguise as he recognizes Hiromu's heartbeat, Tubaloid 2 is caught off guard once Yoko gets candy in her system to offset her Weakpoint. After Gorisaki arrives to give the guys their Morphin Braces, they and Yoko assume their Go-Buster forms while revealing the gear has been modified to resist the Metaloid's music. After Tubaloid 2 is destroyed, the Go-Busters enter their Buster Machines to face Tubazord 2. Using the GT-02 Gorilla to negate the Tubazord 2's music, the Go-Busters form Go-Buster Oh to finish the Vaglass Megazord off.

At that time, after learning of an abnormality from Messiah's engineers over the Enetron he supplied, Enter enters the Hibiki district and creates Soujikiloid to gather Enetron. Alerted to a Vaglass Megazord arrival within 21 and a half minutes, the Go-Busters arrive at the Hibiki district to find Soujikiloid politely sucking up Enetron from cars and Buglers gathering the energy canisters into a truck. As the Buglers hold off the Go-Busters, Beet Buster and his Buddyloid Beet J. Stag arrive to fight Soujikiloid before he falls back. Soon after, as Hiromu accuses them of letting the Metaloid escape, Ryuji admits that he has heard the new Go-Buster's voice somewhere before. Congratulating Ryuji for his deduction, Beet Buster reveals himself to be Masato Jin before he and Jay take their leave. As the Go-Busters learn from Kuroki that he met Masato during the events of the Tubaloid incident, Ryuji thinks that they should not believe him to be the real Masato, despite his behavior, as he has seemingly not aged in 13 years. Once alerted to Soujikiloid's actions along the road of Ride district, the Go-Busters intercept him just as the Metaloid goes berserk and he attempts to kill them. As the Buster Machines are prepared, Masato and Jay arrive to hold Soujikiloid at bay as they respectively transform into Beet Buster and Stag Buster to save the Go-Busters. Seeing that he is truly Masato, Ryuji tells the others to trust him and Stag Buster with the fight as they form Go-Buster Oh to destroy the Soujikizord after the GT-02 disable the Vaglass Megazord's vacuum attachment. Taking out the Buglers, Beet Buster and Stag Buster use their Morphin Blasters to finish Soujikiloid off.

Elsewhere, Hiromu and Cheeda Nick are about to attend Rika's party after winning a prize for the children's book she has been working on, even though she put a chicken on the cover. They are about to reach the reception when they are alerted that Sprayloid 2 is attacking, while Nick is worried about the chicken drawings in Rika's book. The pair confronts Sprayloid 2 when the Metaloid uses his appearance-altering spray to make Nick look like Hiromu. The other Go-Busters arrive on the scene to fight Sprayloid 2's Buglers, all the while he uses his spray paint to change everyone's appearances, confusing everyone in the fight. Beet J. Stag arrives on the scene, ready to fight anyone he thinks is with Vaglass without asking questions first, but he accidentally splashes the gang with water, washing away Sprayloid 2's paint. Meanwhile, Sprayloid 2 has seen Nick taking Rika away from the fight, so he uses the opportunity to disguise himself as her and he manages to trick Nick into revealing that Hiromu's Weakpoint is seeing a chicken. Upon realizing he has been duped, he tries to lie about what he said, but Beet Buster arrives and drives Sprayloid 2 off. After Hiromu takes Rika to the hospital, Nick reveals to the group that Hiromu's Weakpoint is derived from a phobia he gained as a child. The group is soon alerted that Sprayloid 2 is attacking the Asami district in an attempt to call out the Go-Busters to confirm Red Buster's Weakpoint. The Go-Busters arrive on the scene, but Hiromu has not transformed. He charges Sprayloid 2 head on, despite the various images of chickens in the area to try to trigger his Weakpoint. However, Hiromu is entirely unaffected, until Sprayloid 2 realizes that his opponent is none other than Cheeda Nick in disguise. Sprayloid 2 manages to find the real Hiromu and tries to use the chicken image on him, but Hiromu's sunglasses allow him to block his sight in time, ruining Sprayloid 2's plans as the Metaloid is destroyed by the Go-Busters. As Nick washes Sprayloid 2's paint off, Buster Hercules is used to locate Sprayzord 2, which has been disguised as a skyscraper, before destroying it.

Escape holds Beet Buster and Stag Buster back so Kentateloid can deal with the Go-Busters with the latter fight ending in a stalemate as Messiah begins to manifest in the fused Metaloid. Though Escape told Enter that should merge the Cards in their possession to recreate Messiah, Enter tells her that the evolution of a new Messiah is more interesting and that Escape should reconsider her dependence on the Messiah she knew. Alerted that of the Megazords' arrival within 3 minutes at the Dainan district, Kuroki approves of Hiromu's intent to deal with Kentateloid and has the command center outfitted for Christmas as the Go-Busters get ready for Kentateloid's Megazord counterparts. As Go-Buster Beet leads the charge on the Kenzord and the Tatezord, Red Buster confronts Kentateloid yet does not fight back with Enter perplexed. However, Kuroki reveals that Hiromu is holding back his anger with the music box's jingle bell melody. After telling Enter that anger is not a means to get stronger and that he picked a poor day to pick a fight, with Cheeda Nick deciding to sing Jingle Bells, Red Buster reveals that he purposely took Kentateloid's attacks to counter their fighting style. As Buster Hercules and Tategami Lioh take out the Kenzord and the Tatezord, Red Buster destroys Kentateloid. However, Enter Unite obtains the two Messiah Cards with the intend to use them. But they are taken by Escape to enhance Megazord Zeta. Grabbing Enter and telling him that she will restore Messiah to his former glory, Escape has Megazord Zeta crush him in its hands before turning her attention to the Go-Busters.[43] 

Christmas Eve: Time to Complete the Mission[edit]

Yasuko Kobayashi December 23, 2012
Having killed Enter and intending to do the same with the Go-Busters, Escape battles the Go-Buster Megazords in the enhanced Megazord Zeta as Messiah's conscious surfaces and defeats Go-Buster Ace. After others save a gravely injured Hiromu, leaving despite he intent to continue, Megazord Zeta proceeds to summon ten Megazord models. As the others are better informed over the three waves of Megazords and as Go-Buster Ace is being repaired, a wounded Hiromu attempts to fight his way out of the infirmary before Nick snaps him out of it while telling him that he understands but he must also live. Once repairs are done, the Go-Busters head out to face the first wave of Vaglass Megazord with Nick piloting Go-Buster Ace to give Hiromu time to heal. After the first batch, two Alphas and two Betas, are destroyed as Megazord Zeta joins the fray as Gamma and Delta types arrive. Learning the Zeta-Type is attempting to assimilate the summoned Valgass Megazords, Go-Buster Oh and Buster Hercules destroy the second wave before the final wave, composing of each Megazord of the four main archetype, arrives. Even with the FS-O0 providing aid, Megazord Zeta absorbs the remaining Alpha, Beta, and Gamma types to evolve into the titanic Messiah Reboot. Reabsorbing Escape's data as he has no more need for her, Messiah Reboot overpowers the Go-Buster Megazords and attempt to assimilate the GT-02 and the RH-03 until Red Buster arrives in Tategami Lioh to turn the tides. Even after forming Go-Buster King, with Nick joining Red Buster in the cockpit, the Go-Busters still find themselves at a disadvantage. However, Go-Buster King separates with Go-Buster Lioh impaling Messiah Reboot with the Go-Busters' antivirus which surges through the wound as Messiah is utterly destroyed with the three Go-Busters emerging from the raging inferno. The Go-Busters then celebrate Christmas at Daian orphanage, with Rika arriving and Ryuji learning the teacher was once a resident of the orphanage, Hiromu states that they have reason to fight and live for a better tomorrow. However, elsewhere, Enter manifests and wishes the Go-Busters a Merry Christmas while he is now closer to his evolution into a new Messiah.[44]

Kento Shimoyama January 6, 2013
Finding a strange group of Buglers in East district, the Go-Busters take all but two of the grunts as they found Escape's tablet and escape during the fight. With the threat apparently dealt with, as Hiromu sees Rika and learns that she has something important to do, Yoko finds Gorisaki taking Ryuji to see Rena Sato for a blind date. Guilt tripped into it, Ryuji lies of his profession to Rena with Yoko, Masato, and Jay watching incognito. But the spies find Hiromu also in the restaurant as he wanted to know what his sister is doing, all of them joining forces to ensure Ryuji and Rena have a good time as Hiromu tells Morishita not to contact Ryuji no matter what. By that time, at the South district, the Buglers accidentally create a Metaloid with a Vaglass Megazord to arrive in five minutes. The gang decide to take out the threat before Ryuji, who noticed them, to keep him in the dark. As Yoko is grabbed by Ryuji to be his moral support, Red Buster meets with Beet Buster and Stag Buster as they find themselves unknowingly trapped by the tiny Metaloid Omochiloid. When Yellow Buster arrives, knowing he cannot fight the Go-Busters at his present size, Omochiloid latches onto Hiromu as he runs into the restaurant to be Ryuji's wing man. Seeing a change to use the restaurant kitchen to enlarge himself, Omochiloid causes a racket to reach his destination while Buster Hercules deals with the Omochizord. As Tategami Lioh comes to provide back up in destroying the Omochizord with the Lioh Burst, Hiromu learns that he dealing with a small Metaloid like before. Joined by Yellow Buster, Red Buster finds Omochiloid in the kitchen as he uses a stove to enlarge himself to human size and overwhelm the two Go-Busters. When the two starting finding each other and realizing something is going on, Ryuji and Rika emerge from the restaurant after Red Buster assumed Powered Custom to destroy the immobilized Omochiloid. Later, as Hiromu and Nick learn that Rika was actually having a business meeting rather than a date, Ryuji is in the dumps by Rena when she has a boyfriend. With the stress this misadventure brought them, Hiromu decides to go to temple to wish for some peace.[45] 

The New Fusion and Overheated Rampage![edit]

46 "The New Fusion and Overheated Rampage!"
"Arata na Yūgō to Netsu Bōsō!" (新たな融合と熱暴走!) 
Yasuko Kobayashi January 13, 2013
While working out, Hiromu and Cheeda Nick learn that Ryuji is in the dumps because he Yoko does not want his help in picking a high school to attend once their mission is fully over. When they are alerted to a strange Enetron spike in the Okuyama district, Hiromu rides with Ryuji while Nick gives Yoko a ride. Once at the site of the readings, with Ryuji pointing out that it is strange they get an Enetron detection from place without technology, the Go-Busters find Enter and Escape waiting for them as the latter reveals to the former as "Papa Enter". While the others fight the Buglers, Blue Buster learns that Escape does not remember him as she transforms into a flower version of her Escape Evolve form while proceeding to overheat him. As the berserk Blue Buster and Escape fall into the rapids below, Enter overpowers Red Buster Powered Custom yet takes his leave without finishing the human off. Searching for Ryuji, with Beet J. Stag elsewhere looking for his missing stag beetle, Hiromu, Yoko, Jin, and Nick are alerted to Ryuji's Morphin Brace as its owner is still fighting Escape on the beach after he overheated away while attempting to find out why his opponent does not remember him. Though Blue Buster momentarily regained himself to become Blue Buster Powered Custom, Escape overheats him before canceling the Powered Custom transformation. Luckily, Red Buster arrives to hold off Escape while Yellow Buster tries to get Blue Buster into the sea. Though she and Gorisaki Banana are wounded, remembering how Ryuji has always been there for her, Yoko apologizes to Ryuji as she grabs him while failing into the sea. As the RH-03 retrieves them, with Red Buster, Beet Buster, and Stag Buster fighting Escape, Yellow Buster leaps into the air supported by Blue Buster to finish Escape off with the Lio Blaster. However, impressed with Go-Busters' win, Enter reveals his new ability to merge organic life forms and inorganic material by creating both Kuwagataloid from Jay's missing stag beetle and another data clone of Escape.[46] 

Reset and Back-Up[edit]

47 "Reset and Back-Up"
"Risetto to Bakkuappu" (リセットとバックアップ) 
Yasuko Kobayashi January 20, 2013
Able to convert insects and plants into Metaloids, Enter reveals he won the game as he became the new Messiah and that he obtained the Messiah Metaloids' gathered data. Tired of waiting, Escape and Kuwagataloid proceed to fight the others while Enter reveals he will eventually be able to assimilate higher life forms as part of his goal to become the ideal human through Hiromu's data. When he suddenly exposes Hiromu's Weakpoint, the Go-Busters are forced fall back with Enter allowing them to escape. With Enter now knowing his Weakpoint, despite the impossibility behind it, Hiromu resolves to overcome it by any means. But the attempts prove futile as Masato talks to Ryuji and Yoko about Enter and Escape having backups that may be tied to the final Messiah Card. Coming to, Hiromu suggests a change of approaching his Weakpoint. The next day, responding to Kuwagataloid calling them out in the Rindo district, the Go-Busters head out with Beet J. Stag begrudgingly going after the Kuwagatazord. After destroying Escape and creating a new one, Enter has her and Kuwagataloid battle the Go-Busters. With the others inflicting damage to him whenever his Weakpoint was used by the enemy and had nearly completely froze him, Red Buster is able to nullify his weakness and becomes Red Buster Powered Custom so he and Beet Buster can destroy the Organic Metaloid with the Volcanic Beet Slash attack. Joining the SJ-05's fight against Kuwagatazord, Go-Buster Ace, Go-Buster Beet, and Tategami Lioh work together to destroy the enemy Megazord. During their fight with Escape, Blue Buster and Yellow Buster assumed their Powered Custom modes to put the data replica out of her misery. Taking offense to Red Buster insulting his desire to become human, Enter transforms and tells his opponent that they are two sides of the same coin before allowing himself to be destroyed. Later, as Jay is relieved to find his stag beetle in his pocket the entire time, the handle bar Hiromu touched transformed into Enter. Enter than reveals that Hiromu is his back-up, and he is the host of the final Messiah Card.[47] 

Setting the Trap[edit]

48 "Setting the Trap"
"Shikakerareteita Wana" (仕掛けられていた罠) 
Yasuko Kobayashi January 27, 2013
Explaining how Hiromu is his back up, Enter reveals that he implanted Messiah Card 13 inside Red Buster. The card is revealed to have been retrieving data of the other Messiah Cards gathered and is programmed to recreate Enter upon the time of his destruction while copying Hiromu's data in the process. As a result, the only way he can be defeated is with Hiromu's death. As the others confirm Enter's words, Hiromu takes this revelation hard as it effects his training and now understanding why Enter has been easy on him. Putting up a front as Yoko tells him the others are trying to find a way to get the card out of him, Hiromu resolves that the only way to defeat Enter is to face him and escapes the Energy Management Center. Elsewhere, Enter creates a new more aggressive Escape by fusing a snake into her data make up. But seeing that restoring her original mindset impossible as her data is beyond corruption, Enter leaves to Escape to her devices as she proceeds to assimilate various animals into her being. The next day at the Kindai district, luring Enter with an attempted suicide, Hiromu transforms and assumes Powered Custom mode to fight him in battle to the death. But because of the Messiah Card in Hiromu gives him a bit of his host's data with each recreating, Enter can mimic Red Buster's fighting style as he intends to put his back up in a coma. Elsewhere, the other Go-Busters run into Escape as she assumes her monstrous Evolve Animal Unite Form to attack them. Though they manage to overpower her, Escape assimilate the surrounding matter to become Escape Zeta as Go-Buster King is formed to fight her. Motivated to put her out of her misery, the Go-Busters destroy Escape Zeta with Blue Buster giving Escape peace of mind as she is deleted for good. Arriving to the site of his fight with Enter, they find Red Buster making his move to destroy both himself and Enter in the flames of his Volcanic Attack unless the latter removes the Messiah Card from him. Impressed, Enter responds by intensifying the inferno with his own flame with Red Buster canceling his Powered Custom to save Nick. When the dust clears, Hiromu emerges from the cables Enter encased him in as Enter revives himself. Explaining how more powerful he has now become as his face briefly morphed into Hiromu, Enter says "Let's Morphin'" and the Go-Busters transformation sound is heard as the team looks on in shock. 

Preparation and Selection[edit]

49 "Preparation and Selection"
"Kakugo to Sentaku" (覚悟と選択) 
Yasuko Kobayashi February 3, 2013
Explaining how more powerful he has now become from copying Hiromu's data through the final Messiah Card with each demise and recreation, Enter transforms into a parody of Red Buster: Dark Buster.[48] Now beyond the primary Go-Busters' ability to destroy with Powered Custom mode with an understanding of the human spirit and confidence that will soon have the power to change the world in his image, Dark Buster proceeds to overpower the five before taking his leave while telling them that the best is yet to come. After the others scold him for being reckless in trying to handle the Messiah Card on his own. When Ryuji promises to kill Hiromu if needed and Yoko having faith they can save him, Hiromu thanks them as he entrusts them with his life. Eventually, the group learns that Enter merged into an Enetron tank to convert it into a cocoon. But once inside to find survivors, the primary Go-Busters find most of the humans being assimilated into the building's structure with only two children spared. Enter reveals his evolution is nearly complete as the primary Go-Busters take the kids when Buglers manifest. Once the Buglers are dealt with, the primary members are called that Masato reveals that they are going into subspace through Hangar 4 for a risky gambit that could remove the card from the Hiromu. However they are unaware that the process will likely also destroy Masato's physical body. Knowing the risk as subspace is unstable since Messiah's defeat in the dimension, the Go-Busters resolve to take Enter with them to finish things with him there. As Go-Buster Oh and Buster Hercules are formed, Enter has the cocoon transform into Megazord Omega as it proceeds to assimilate the surrounding thirteen Enetron tanks to begin his. Though, Enter is knocked in Hangar 4 as he realizes their proceeds to tear the Energy Management Center apart. But with Tategami Lioh joining the fray, the Go-Busters' Megazords hold Megazord Omega long enough for all five Megazords to be transported into the unstable subspace. While the Go-Busters are unconscious, Enter surveys the dying landscape with the intent to return to reality.[49] 

Eternal Bonds[edit]

Final "Eternal Bonds"
"Eien no Kizuna" (永遠のキズナ) 
Yasuko Kobayashi February 10, 2013
Arriving in a collapsing subspace, the Go-Busters check-in. All the Go-Busters arrived safely, and all Buddy Machines but Tategami Lioh are accounted for. When Dark Buster Enter attacks Hiromu and Yoko, Masato and Jay take off for the hangar, as Jay tells the others to meet him there. Enter appears to have the upper hand, until Ryuji arrives in GT-02 and uses the banana missiles to bury Enter in an avalanche. The Go-Busters make their way to the hangar, where Masato reveals his plan. Since the data from Masato's body that Enter has on Messiah Card 07 is backed up on Messiah Card 13 in Hiromu, they can digitize Hiromu and transmit the data on Card 13 to Masato's body. Like magnets, the body data will want to return to its natural body, dragging the card with it. However, Jay breaks down and explains that an infusion of that much data to Masato's unstable body will destroy him. Masato confirms this, but says the card would also be destroyed as well, removing Enter's backup and allowing for his destruction. The other Go-Busters don't want to sacrifice him, but he passionately pleads with them, as they don't have another plan that would work before Enter took over the real world. They agree, and Hiromu enters the transport chamber as Yoko, Ryuji, and the Buddyloids go to hold off Enter. Yoko and Usada and Ryuji and Gorisaki combine as Powered Custom, while Jay transforms into Stag Buster and Nick simply fights in his humanoid form. Masato's impassioned plead to Jay to help him protect the “fascinating world” inspires Jay to hold Enter off. The transport process completes, and as they expected, Card 13 traveled to Masato's body and was then destroyed with it, though his avatar can hold together a while longer. The destruction of Card 13 cancels Enter's Dark Buster mode, and he furiously returns to the Omega Megazord. Tategami Lioh arrives, and the Go-Busters throw all their combinations at the Megazord, but to no effect as Enter still has all the data on them. Hiromu realizes they need to use a tactic Enter has never seen, and directs Nick to transfer all their Enetron to the legs. This gives Go-Buster Ace Hiromu's ability of fast transport, which catches Enter off-guard, and lets Buster Hercules and Go-Buster King finish the Megazord off. Enter escapes to the ground, and he and the Go-Busters have their final battle. Enter uses his dark version of the Volcanick Attack, but the Go-Busters counter with the new Volcanick All Busters Attack, which overwhelms and destroys him. Masato's avatar dissolves, and the exhausted Go-Busters collapse, resigned to be destroyed as the subspace collapses around them. But Hiromu's father and Masato appear in the sky, urging the Go-Busters to press on, and instructing the Buddyloids to take them to Masato's hanger to escape. Enter's cocoons in the real world shut down, and the people inside return to normal, but the staff at the EMC are saddened as they see the subspace collapse with no word from the Go-Busters. But they are then relieved as a signal comes through from Hiromu, as the surviving Go-Busters are returning from subspace. A short time later, they celebrate Yoko's getting into high school again. We see that Ryuji has gone on to become an engineer like he dreamed, with Gorisaki as his assistant. Jay has designated himself the overseer of the forest, and wears the black Jenga block around his neck in memory of Masato. Nick and Hiromu stand on the same bridge they first drove across at the beginning of the series, and Nick asks Hiromu what's next. Hiromu says he doesn't know, and that he has 13 years of thinking to make up for. Nick says he'll stay with Hiromu wherever he goes, and the two drive off into the sunset.[50]
