    THE STORY:

    Several millennia ago, there lived a benevolent elemental spirit who traveled the world with the power of the Earth's elements at his fingertips, eliminating the forces of evil. In Feudal Japan, he ran into an evil even he could not defeat alone, a dark being known only as Lord Oujou. The Great Spirit had managed to seal Oujou away and dispose of his body in an unknown location. However, it cost him his stability as he was split into six Spirit Stones, representing each of the elements. The Stone of Light accidentally became lost in time, while the other five were entrusted to a noble samurai family, the Honomoto Clan. In the present day, Lord Oujou’s seal is found during an archaeological survey in Japan.

    When he is brought back to America, an archaeologist foolishly opens the box and becomes the human host for Oujou. While in search of his old body, he resurrects his foot soldiers who were sealed alongside him to gain human souls to feast off of and give him strength. When the Logan Honomoto, the 18th head of the Honomoto Clan is told of this he discovers a portion of the elemental spirit still sentient within the Stone of Fire, now turning into a disc of the Lion Origami Zord of the Fire Elemental. He must find the other ‘chosen’ recipients of the Spirit Stones to become Power Rangers and ward off Oujou’s forces. Will they be able to succeed? Find out on Power Rangers: Bushido Spirits!

    THE RANGERS: {Click Names To View Pictures}

    Red Bushido Ranger: Logan Honomoto (played by Justin Chon) - Logan is the 18th head of the Honomoto Clan. Strong and disciplined, Logan represents everything that his family expects of him, aside from the small fact that he doesn't want anything to do with being a ranger.

    Blue Bushido Ranger: Raphael "Raph" Morgan (played by Brandon T. Jackson) - Suave and cool are the words that describe Raph, at least that's what he thinks. Raphael embodies everything about water, down to Earth, fluid, easy going, and potentially a terrible enemy.

    Pink Bushido Ranger: Ashley "Ash" Molina (played by Justin Sane) - Rebellious and as straight as they come, Ash will tell you straight to your face exactly what he thinks of you, and he won't sugarcoat it.

    Green Bushido Ranger: Jude Darrow (played by Hayley Williams) - If it weren't for the fact that her plumbing was different, you'd swear Jude was a one of the guys. She is extremely sarcastic, competitive almost to a fault, and is just a bit of a flirt.

    Yellow Bushido Ranger: Piper Mason (played by Summer Glau) - Clothes, make-up, puppies, boys; these are the kinds of things Piper thinks about. She is a dependable, caring, and affectionate person, but sometimes lets her girlish qualities get in the way.

    Gold Bushido Ranger: Dawson Lambert (played by Taylor Lautner) - A wanderer by nature, Dawson is one of those who like to do things his own way. But when it comes down to business, he's right there with you. He's cocky, adventurous, and will have sex with just about anything that walks.


    Allies: {Click Names to View Pictures}

    Chiyoko Honomoto: Essentially the creater of the Bushido Spirit powers, the memory of Chiyoko Honomoto is shrouded more in mystery than what is revealed in fact. Now more of a legend than anything else, she plays a bigger part in this epic battle of good versus evil than anyone realizes.

    Takumi Sato: Takumi Sato (played by Michael Paul Chan) is the faithful servant, father figure, and mentor to the Power Rangers. He stays behind the scenes, watching over the rangers battles while instructing their training as samurai.

    Cam Watanabe: Cam is the former Green Samurai Ranger who fought with the rangers of the Thunder and Wind Ninja Academies. Acting as guardian of the Tiger Disk, Cam returned it to the Honomoto Clan, offering his help to the rangers when the time comes.

    THE FALLEN: {Click Names To View Pictures}

    The Fallen are malevolent spirits living in a giant Chinese sailing ship that sails along the Sanzu River. Able to squirm their way into the world of the living, they attack humans to feed on their souls to gain power. Though defeated and sealed by samurai eighteen generations ago, the Fallen reawaken in the present to resume their havoc.

    Lord Oujou: The leader of The Fallen, Lord Oujou (Played by Bernard Cumberbatch) is a powerful being armed with a large broadsword and the ability to seal his fellow Fallen. He battled the Honomoto Clan's previous samurai, and was sealed by a former holder of the Red Ranger moniker. Unfortunately the seal was incomplete, allowing Oujou to escape when a naive archaeologist found it and brought it back to America.

    Demona: Demona (Played by Ziyi Zhang) is the right hand of Lord Oujou and the only one he shows kindness towards, as long as she remembers her place. She has a shamisen that holds the soul of a man whom she loved that never loved her in return. With it she plays haunting and melancholy melodies that seem to calm her lord.

    Octovilius: Octovilius is essentially Lord Oujou's tactician, resembling an octopus he devises plans to defeat the rangers. To him, humans are nothing more than test subjects and pawns for his use.

    Slayers: The Slayers are Lord Oujou's footsoldiers armed with swords and bows. There are several different subgroups of Slayers, including those who are naturally gigantic in size.

    Jupiter: Jupiter (Played by Tori Matsuzaka) is a mysterious warrior who fights for neither the Fallen nor the side of good. He has his own agenda, walking the line between the worlds of light and darkness.

    [Scene 1]

    Ext. Forest Clearing – Night, Ancient Japan

    A large clearing in the middle of a forest, trees fallen down everywhere, small fires surrounding and lightning filling the sky.

    A woman dressed in battle robes stands at one end of the clearing, katana in hand. A single strand of black hair is hanging in front of her face, breathing heavy, her body moving up and down with every breath.

    A huge red monster stands at the other end of the clearing, a similarly huge sword in his other hand, it’s teeth showing as its eyes glow an eerie yellow.

    Close up on the woman’s face.

    Woman: [in Japanese, English subtitles]
    So, this is how it’s going to end, isn’t it? You and me; swords clashing for the very souls of this world? --- What happened?

    Close up to the monster’s face.

    Lord Oujou
    What happened?! You let this happen, not me! If it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t even be having this battle. Now, I’m going to enjoy ripping your soul from your cold body.

    Back to the woman.

    Woman
    That’s not going to happen!

    Camera moves out to show the full clearing, as both ready themselves. Both draw their swords and race toward each other, sparks flying as both pieces of metal clash. Woman spins as Oujou swipes his blade over Woman. She kicks his chest and knocks him back, but he stops himself and comes back swinging, his blade making contact with the fabric over her shoulder, exposing her arm.

    She swings her sword vertically, but he blocks it, and then knocks her back. Woman crouches down, clutching her fist at her side, closing her eyes at the same time. Within seconds, she opens her eyes, now glowing white, and extends her arm out in front of her. A blast of fire balls fly from her glowing hand, headed right at Oujou. He blocks each fire ball with his sword, and once within a few feet of her, he swings his sword at her head, but she rolls out of the way, releasing a blast of water from her left hand and a gust of wind from the other.

    Oujou is suddenly frozen in ice, but the ice is slowly cracking.

    Woman
    I guess this is it; I’m ready to do what has to be done.

    The woman’s eyes glow again. As she motions her arms up, rock slowly forms over the quickly breaking ice, which she then blasts with fire, cooling it down with a gust of air.

    Pulling out a brush, she begins drawing a symbol [滅] in mid-air, which glows white along with her eyes. As it is completed, she spins it as it speeds for the mound of rock. The rock breaks as a fiery outline of Oujou is shown, the woman’s body tensed up as if her body is being pulled in multiple directions. Oujou’s body is gradually turned into a sphere that then shoots off into the sky. Suddenly, the fire collapses into a stone disc as the woman falls to the ground.

    A man in robes runs out of the forest into the clearing, sliding down and crouching down beside the woman.

    Man
    Chiyoko, you’re exhausted! We need to get you back and so you can regain your ---

    Chiyoko
    No, it’s – too late for that. [Chiyoko is struggling as most of her strength went into sealing Oujou] I need you to bring me the seal. This is the only way to make sure he never returns.

    Reluctantly, the man moves toward the disc, flinching slightly as the heat surprises him. Bringing it back to Chiyoko, she brings it toward her heart, which causes the area to glow one more time. A bright light then leaves her body as the disc rises up above it. It shoots out toward the mountains as the light fractures into six different colored lights: red, blue, green, yellow, pink and gold. The six lights shoot out miles in different directions, Chiyoko’s arms going limp and hitting the ground.

    The man looks over the woman’s body, his eyes filling with tears as her drops his head onto her chest. A couple seconds later, he sits up; folding her hands into his own, and looks at her face.

    Man
    No matter what, I will watch over this land, honoring your memory as our child grows older. I will insure that nothing threatens this world again. I promise, with all my heart: your death will not be in vain.

    [The scene fades to black as the title flashes over the screen.]


    [Scene 2]

    Ext. Modern Day City

    The city is Alma Valley, California.

    [Scene fades in, camera facing the top of a hill, on the side walk]

    An attractive, lead type guy of Japanese descent, around 20, walks down the busy streets, his mind deep in thought.

    [Camera follows him on the side facing away from the street]

    He wears a simple red hoodie with slim cut blue jeans, and tennis shoes. He appears to be thinking hard about something, when he accidentally bumps into someone trying to pass him.

    Logan
    Sorry… [says this while barely turning his head around, about 15 degrees. Voice barely over an indoor voice]

    [Camera focuses on the alley]

    Logan passes an alley, after which a black hooded figure can be vaguely seen looking behind him, then disappearing into the dark.

    [Camera back on Logan]

    Logan looks behind him, feeling like he’s being followed. He sees nothing, and then carries on his way.

    [Camera facing Logan’s back]

    As Logan continues walking down the street, another black hooded figure is seen sticking his head out from behind a trash can who then jumps on the trash can and climbs up a hanging stair well.

    [Close up on Logan’s face, turning toward his back as he turns his head]

    Logan looks behind to see what the noise he heard was, but all he sees is a stray alley cat.

    Logan
    Come on Logan, you’re losing it---great, now you’re talking to yourself.

    [First person perspective]

    Logan walks toward the edge of the sidewalk, approaching the crosswalk. A puddle can be seen in over the edge of the curb. Logan prepares to hop over the puddle into the cross-walk when---

    [Camera faces Logan]

    ---a black hooded figure jumps out in front of Logan and lies down in the puddle, as if acting like a bridge for Logan to walk over.

    Logan
    [surprised, angry] What the---! What are you guys doing here! I thought I said for you kuroko to stay at the mansion.

    Another kuroko comes over, helps the other up, and the two bow in front of Logan.

    Logan
    Seriously! Get back to the mansion! I don’t want you guys tailing me again.

    The two kuroko get back on their feet, bow to Logan, and head off, one Kuroko leaving a trail of dripping water in his path.

    Logan
    I really can’t handle this right now.

    [Scene 3]

    Int. Hallway

    A professor at the local university grabs his keys out of his pocket as he walks up to a door with the words “Archaeology Department”

    The scientist inserts his keys, turns the door knob and enters into his office. Clumsily, he drops his keys on the ground, which is when he notices a box next to the wall with his name on it.

    Scientist
    Hmm, I wonder what this could be.

    Grabbing the box, he tucks it under his right arm and walks into his office, closing the door behind him.

    [Scene 4]

    Ext. City

    Logan continues walking down the street, his mind wondering as he thinks about the events of today.

    [Cue flashback scene]

    Takumi
    Happy birthday Logan! [slight Japanese accent, as if it has faded with the years he has been in America]

    Takumi puts a wrapped box in front of Logan, complete with a bow and everything.

    Logan
    Wow, you really didn’t have to do this Jii.

    Logan begins unwrapping the box, which is only about 3 inches in height. He gets down to a white box, and starts taking off the top. Inside is a reddish colored stone with a Japanese kanji inscribed on the surface.

    Logan
    What—what is this Jii?

    Takumi pulls up a chair and sits down next to Logan, a look of pride and concern in his eyes.

    Takumi
    Since it is your twenty-first birthday, you are now an adult. The time has come for me to explain to you your family heritage.

    Logan
    What’s there to explain, I know I’m descended from Japanese noblemen. What else could there be?

    Takumi
    You aren’t just of any noble blood; you have the blood of a great lineage of samurai running through your veins.

    Logan
    Dude, are you serious! That is awesome. I can’t wait to tell---

    Takumi
    No! You can’t tell anyone. This is a lineage that must remain hidden, for your family, the Honomoto clan, has watched over this world for thousands of years. You, Logan, are the eighteenth head of Honomoto clan. You must now inherit the spirit of the Red Bushido Ranger. You must begin your training---

    Logan
    --Wait, what? What do you mean, Red Bushido Ranger? What does that even mean?

    Takumi
    The first samurai of the Honomoto clan possessed the power of the elements. When she died, her powers were fractured, and the power of Fire fell to her child. Your ancestors were charged with guarding the other powers, as well as making sure her death was not in vain. You are to protect the seal that binds an ancient evil that she died to create.

    Logan
    Whoa, I don’t think so. I never asked for this. I never even knew about this. You can have this stupid thing back. I’m not gonna have any part of this samurai bull crap!

    Logan pushes himself away from the table the red stone sits on, knocking his chair over as he heads out the door.


    Takumi
    No Logan, you must come back! You are the world’s only hope for survival if evil returns.—Logan!

    [end flashback scene]

    Logan walks past the harbor, the sound of ship engines humming as he walks past.

    Logan
    Who am I? Was my life really just a lie?

    [Scene 5]

    Int. Lab

    A small, cluttered lab at a local university. Shelves are full of artifacts from ancient Japan. A single light can be seen in the corner of the lab as a man stands over a small, wooden box.

    [Camera zooms in on the scientist]

    With a knife, the scientist pries open the box, revealing a folded piece of paper, which he removes.

    Scientist
    So, this is the artifact they found. Hmm…

    [Camera does a close-up on the artifact, which carries the kanji used to is seal Oujou’s spirit]

    Picking the disc up, it begins to heat up, causing the scientist to drop it as he looks at the burned skin of his fingers. The sound of broken stone can be heard. The scientist kneels down, trying to pick up all of the broken pieces when a red mist begins to emanate from the broken artifact.

    Scientist
    What the hell---

    The scientist leans in closer, when suddenly the mist condenses and shoots up into the scientist’s mouth, causing him to choke. He begins coughing uncontrollable, grasping for air. He falls over on his side, clawing at his throat, trying to get air to flow through, but his movements begin to slow and his body goes limp.

    All of a sudden, his eyes begin to fill with a familiar yellow glow as he gets up, looking around at the lab around him. He looks at his arms, looking amused at the white lab coat he is wearing.

    Scientist
    [In a deeper, more menacing voice] The time has come to revive my army. The folks will be worried. Now, where shall I begin…?

    The Scientist walks rather zombie-like towards the desk, picking up a folder of notes. He flicks through them rather uninterested; first he comes across a diagram sketch of a female monstrous creature, who is simply named ‘Demona’ and old sketches. He eventually comes to a map of a city, Alma Valley, an industrial area in particular circled and two small Polaroid’s of a harbor and particularly one warehouse being photographed.

    He flicks through the pages to find similar things for Octovilius and his army, which have been labeled as ‘Slayers’ on the diagram. Octovilius doesn’t have a picture indicating where he was buried, but the photograph for the Slayers points to the same warehouse with notes scribbled.

    [Before Alma Valley Harbor was developed, this was a rather modern shrine in the 80s dedicated to the Sun Goddess Amaterasu Omikami]

    Scientist
    So…they’re rather close by…perfect…this is coming together rather nicely…

    Suddenly, the scientist’s body begins to glow red as he is sucked into a gap in-between a bookcase and a wall, the spot he went through fading back to black as the red glow dissipates.

    [Scene 6]

    Ext. City streets. Business District

    [Camera focused on Logan’s front]

    Logan walks past what seems like hundreds of people. The pace is fast as people weave in and out of each other. Logan is still deep in thought, but is much more aware of his surroundings. Suddenly, a guy in a blue jacket walks passed him, bumping into Logan.

    [Camera on Raphael]

    Raphael
    What the hell!? Watch where you’re going man!

    [Camera back to Logan]

    Logan
    Sorry…

    Raphael
    Man, I really want to slap some of these --- why hello…

    [Camera focused on attractive, girly girl in a yellow tee, black mini skirt and chucks.]

    Raphael
    And how are we doing today beautiful?

    Piper
    Get lost you freak.

    Raphael
    Well—how rude.

    [Camera focuses on Piper as she walks in a convenience store, heading toward the coolers and pulling out a bottle of water]

    Piper walks toward the register as the cashier scans the barcode on the bottle.

    [Camera focuses on male cashier, young, 20 something. Dressed in punk attire]

    Ashley
    That’ll be a dollar-forty.

    Piper pulls out a wallet from her purse, taking out a plastic card.

    Ashley
    [bored tone of voice] Will that be debit or credit?

    Piper
    Credit please.

    Ashley presses a button on his register as Piper swipes her card. A piece of paper prints out, and Ashley hands it to Piper.

    Ashley
    [bored] Thank you for shopping at 7-Eleven, you have a good one.

    [Camera follows Piper toward the door]

    Once Piper opens the doors, another girl walks in, this one dressed in skinny jeans, a semi-tight fitting t-shirt and slip on Vans. She heads toward the cooler, pulling out a black and blue canned energy drink. She heads toward the register, propping the can on the counter.

    Ashley
    That’ll be two fifteen.

    Jude
    Alright—I think I got that.

    Jude pulls out a wallet from her back pocket, pulling out three dollar bills.

    Jude
    Here you go.

    Ashley accepts the cash, pressing a button on his register, and pulling out her change, handing it back to her.

    Ashley
    Thank you for shopping at 7-Eleven, have a nice day.

    Jude heads out the door, bumping into Logan as she runs out. She looks back, clearly annoyed.

    Jude
    Watch where you’re going numb-nuts!

    Logan
    ---[to himself] What is up with people today?

    [Scene 7]

    Int. Abandoned Warehouse

    It is an old warehouse which hasn’t been used in decades. There are a couple of boxes, the concrete floor stained with oil and dirt. Suddenly, along the wall, a crack lights up red as something oozes out, materializing into the scientist, except now his skin is covered in red patches and veins popping out of his forearms.

    Scientist [big, dark voice]
    So, this is where they imprisoned her.

    The scientist looks around.

    Scientist
    Funny, she’ll appreciate the sadness and entropy that fills this place. Now I just need to get down there.

    Suddenly, the scientist’s hand begins to light up a deep, crimson red as a concussive blast of energy hits the concrete ground, throwing smoke and debris everywhere. As the smoke clears, a huge, gaping hole can be seen in the ground. The scientist walks over to the hole, jumping in.

    [Camera moves underground]

    The scientist crouches once he lands, falling from a good 30 feet. He sees an inscription on the wall in front of him. He blasts the inscription and a sarcophagus is revealed behind the wall. He snaps his fingers, causing red crimson lights to fill up the nearby cracks. Suddenly, five red creatures [slayers] ooze out of the cracks.

    Scientist
    Pull her out of there!

    He points toward the sarcophagus, the creatures now moving toward it, grabbing behind the huge object and pulling it out, a loud boom filling the cavern as the object hits the ground. He points his hand toward the sarcophagus, and begins mumbling in ancient Japanese. A point of red light appears on the side of the sarcophagus, which then shoots around, joining back on the other side. He then kicks the top off, revealing a stone statue of a woman.

    Scientist
    My dark goddess, you will soon be returned to me.

    The scientist pulls out a knife, cutting the skin on his palm. He lets the blood drip onto the statue’s lips. Within seconds, the stone begins to crack, gradually growing in amount. Suddenly, a figure shoots up from the sarcophagus, coughing as it looks around, eventually locking eyes on the scientist.

    Demona
    Lord Oujou! You have returned…

    Oujou
    Yes, albeit in a weak form, but returned nonetheless.

    The two then come close to each other and begin kissing passionately, which causes the slayers to look away uncomfortably.

    Oujou
    Come, we have many things to catch up on.

    [Scene 8]

    Ext. City

    Logan is continuing walking down the street [camera facing him] when he hears someone call out his name. He looks around to see Takumi running toward him, clearly out of breath.

    Logan
    What do you want?

    Takumi catches up, taking a couple of seconds to catch his breath.

    Takumi
    Logan, he’s free.

    Logan
    Who’s free?

    Takumi
    Lord Oujou, the demon your ancestor locked away thousands of years ago. I sensed his presence earlier.

    Logan
    [Sarcastically] Oh really! Great timing Jii.

    Takumi
    Now Logan, I’m offering you this one more time: take on the responsibilities of the Red Bushido Ranger.

    Takumi pulls out the red stone, along with a black cell phone. He opens it and twists it, revealing a brush from the tip. He then writes a kanji [meaning modernize] over the stone, causing it to glow and change into a orange tinted version of Takumi’s phone. He hands the morpher toward Logan, but Logan just looks at it, looking back up at Takumi.

    Logan
    I told you Jii, I’m not doing it.

    [Scene 9]

    Ext. Alma Valley Harbor-

    Demona and human form Oujou walk calmly out of the warehouse with their army of Slayers. Surprisingly, everyone’s busy at work where they’re NOT in sight of the big walking monsters. Oujou gazes at the scene and ponders…

    Demona
    Lord….myself and Octovilius had laid plans of possible locations where we were buried on our home on the Sanzu River. If we return we can gain reinforcements, more of your loyal soldiers of higher rank are also waiting there.

    Oujou
    Not just yet. That artifact has weakened me from being inside it for so long.

    Demona
    Ah, I have been weakened also.

    Oujou
    We need human souls to gather our strength once again. And our higher ranked monsters need bodies to be able to assume a physical form in this world. Therefore, the humans should sacrifice their bodies as well as their souls to us. Round up several Slayers and have them follow us around the harbor.

    Demona
    Oh, that is so perfect my lord! We shall show the terrified dwellers of this world that they belong to us.

    Four Slayers bring something to Oujou. It is a large sword that’s predominantly black with a gold encrusted dragon pattern trailing around it. Oujou takes it and a devious smile creeps on his face. Demona hugs him rather…creepily briefly before letting him go.

    Demona
    Go ahead my lord. Transform. Show the world why they should fear Lord Oujou.

    Oujou holds his sword up to the sky as it turns cloudy and a thunderstorm rains down on the harbor. He begins the slow transformation as his human form disappears and the monstrous red body appears. His ears grow out to form solid wing like shapes as deformed, mutated armor begins appearing in place of his human body. Eventually, the monstrous form of Lord Oujou arises as thunder strikes and the storm seemingly fades, the skies becoming eerily calm.

    Oujou
    Mmm...it feels so good to be back in my own body. But I’ll have to use my human form more often in this realm. Without energy I cannot maintain this form for long.

    Demona
    As you wish my lord. Shall we begin?

    Oujou and Demona walk with their armies as civilians start running in a panic. They and the Slayers manage to get a hold of several construction workers, taking off their hard hats and wearing them themselves. Oujou picks them up one by one as his eyes glow red and their eyes glow blue as the blue essence travels from them and into Oujou’s and Demona’s mouths. Their bodies convulse from the stress until they fall down limp. Their screams from inside the monsters echo throughout the harbor, even heard by Logan and Takumi as they walk towards the entrance. Demona and her army break off as Oujou and his army continue on their path.

    Logan
    You hear that?

    Takumi
    Sounds like trouble! Let’s go!

    Logan
    W-Wait!

    The two run towards the harbor.

    [Scene 10]

    Ext. City, Harbor Cargo Dock, Day

    The civilians run in panic out of the harbor as quick as they can. Takumi and Logan motion for the rushing crowd to leave the area.

    Logan
    Are you okay?! Get to safety!

    Takumi
    It’s okay! You’re safe now!

    Oujou and his army of Slayers advance towards Takumi and Logan, however, they’re too far away to notice them as of yet. They turn their attentions towards a foreman who tripped over a Slayer trying to run past them and peers at him menacingly as his eyes glow red and the foreman’s eyes glow yellow, grabbing him as it can be clearly be seen that his soul is being ripped out as the blue essence of himself is stretched and absorbed into Oujou.

    Takumi and Logan are still arguing.

    Takumi
    Now do you see what dangers are being presented before you?!

    Logan
    I see guys who think it’s funny to dress in plastic red costumes and some big guy whose ears are too big for him.

    Takumi
    This is no laughing matter! You must become the Red Bushido Ranger and stand up to Oujou’s tyranny!

    Logan
    Now hold on. I never asked to be dragged into this! I mean, all this time I thought I was a regular kid. I haven’t had any sword training! To suddenly go from a just barely out of college guy to being a…Power Ranger, fighting these things is a bit of a stretch. What can someone like me do?

    Takumi
    You are a Honomoto, your talents will come to you naturally!

    Logan
    Aren’t samurai trained from a younger age than twenty one?

    Takumi
    I told you. You’re a Honomoto. All you would need training for is to refine your skills. I thought it’d be inappropriate for you as a child because of where you grew up.

    Logan
    Bullshit.

    Takumi
    [firm, angrily] I have never been so insulted by a Lord in my entire life!

    Logan
    Why should I have to follow something that has nothing to with me?! I never asked for this!

    Takumi
    It’s your duty to your planet and your family. However, if you are willing to turn back on your clan so easily, there was a decree laid down by the Honomoto Clan. If the current head of House refused the title of Red Ranger, the Jii of the family is permitted to assume the role to carry on the clan name. I shall remind you of your responsibilities by doing this.

    Logan
    Like I care! Go ahead!

    Takumi
    Oujou! Stop immediately!

    Oujou
    Hmm…? Ah. (looks at Takumi’s gi, dropping the foreman) That crest. You’re from the Honomoto Clan!

    Takumi
    That is correct! We will honor Chiyoko’s memory by ensuring you can never roam free again!

    Oujou
    You’d especially know all about that…

    Logan
    …What..?!

    Takumi
    None of your concern!

    Takumi holds Red’s Brush Morpher, converting it to Brush Mode.

    Takumi
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    Takumi uses the brush on the morpher to draw the kanji symbol for fire. As he flips it around however, the kanji symbol turns into an image of a blazing fire. As Takumi presses the button to morph, the fire shoots flames at him that engulf his body momentarily, materializing around his body as the suit for the Red Bushido Ranger. The flames grow in intensity, causing a cloud of smoke…

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT ONE]
    As the smoke clears from the fire, the Slayers look in amazement at the Red Ranger standing before them. They first focus on his feet, red boots with black pants, his torso with the belt that holds the Samurai Katana, and finally his helmet with the kanji symbol for fire serving as the visor. The camera pans around Takumi from below as he stares readily at the Slayers who cower back.
    [END SENTAI FOOTAGE USE]

    Logan stares in amazement at Takumi morphed as Oujou just laughs at him.

    Oujou
    Even she couldn’t beat me! What makes you think you can?!

    Takumi
    It is my duty. For I represent the honor guard of the Honomoto Clan, the Power Rangers Bushido Spirits, as the Red Bushido Ranger!

    Oujou
    Pathetic….enough talk, we’ll see if your words match your skills. And if not, I’ll simply take your soul.

    Takumi draws his Samurai Katana as Oujou draws his own sword. They start to clash while Logan watches, slightly worried but mostly surprised. Oujou launches a strike at Takumi as Takumi evades and aims a slash at Oujou’s legs, Oujou immediately blocking it with his own sword.


    Oujou tries to go for a sweep but Takumi jumps over Oujou to avoid it. That was a mistake however, as if anticipating Takumi’s move, Oujou quickly turns around for another slash, going for the chest. Takumi falls to the floor, sparks emitting from his suit. Takumi proceeds to slowly, but determinedly, get up again. Several Slayers grab Takumi as he’s getting up and hold him in place as Oujou swings several slashes across his chest. Logan sees this and quickly rushes to pull the Slayers off of him. He’s not entirely successful, as he only manages two before two more approach him and kick him to the side as if he was nothing, causing Logan to crash into boxes.

    Takumi
    LOGAN!

    The distraction gives the Fallen an advantage. Oujou’s attacks start to become more rapid now, going for strikes from the left, from the right, even aiming for the shoulders. The sparks emitting from Takumi’s suit grow stronger and wilder as he screams in pain. Eventually, Oujou enacts a final strike by slashing in the pattern of an unknown kanji symbol. Logan watches in horror as he pulls his way out of the box heap he was thrown into.

    Logan
    TAK!!!

    Takumi stumbles around, dazed as his suit is sparking. He eventually collapses, dropping out of morph and revealed to be battered and bruised, his clothes torn. Oujou inches towards Takumi, sword pointed towards him and his monstrous chest beginning to glow.

    Oujou
    I win. Now, the soul of a Honomoto family clan member should be particularly enriching….

    Takumi ‘s eyes glow blue and he can already begin to feel his soul being ripped out as his body tenses by Oujou as he struggles with all his might to resist, his soul pouring out of his body ever so slowly. It seems like Takumi is about to die, Oujou raising his sword up in the air to kill him and speed up the process, when….

    Logan
    Leave him alone!

    Logan rushes towards Oujou and tries to shove him aside. He’s succeeded in interrupting the soul collecting process, but he doesn’t do much to Oujou as Oujou pushes him towards Takumi as they’re both collapsed on the floor. Oujou stares intently, as if there’s something about Takumi and Logan he can’t quite put his finger on.

    Oujou
    Hmph. No matter. I’ll leave my Slayers to finish you off. I have more important matters than deal with two pretenders to the Honomoto name. Maybe if you survive I’ll have a duel with both of you myself again. (laughs, teleporting away through a gap between a forklift and a wall, the gap growing black)

    Logan and Takumi are cornered by the Slayers, each of them peering menacingly at the two. Logan stands defiantly in front of Takumi to protect him.

    Takumi
    Logan…

    Logan
    I don’t know much about this “Fallen”. I’ve not had any training, and I’d realized before the situation was serious. But now I realize I’d try my damned hardest to ensure these bastards don’t harm anyone else after they fucked with the man who raised me most of my life.

    Takumi
    So this means….?

    Logan
    Yeah…..

    Takumi smiles and throws Logan the Red Ranger morpher. Logan takes it and converts it to brush mode as he stands defiantly facing the oncoming slayers. He raises the morpher as if to get ready to morph, but one Slayer takes a jump at him. Logan rolls out of the way as he’s once again standing with his back to the entrance to the harbor. He tries again, raising the Brush Morpher as the Slayers turn to him.

    Logan
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    Logan proceeds to draw the kanji symbol for fire, as he completes it; he flips it around as it turns into a single flame. He presses the morph button and the morpher sends him to an unknown realm for the morph sequence.

    [Cue theme music]

    Logan finds himself in a burning inferno of a devastated Feudal Japan town as the sky above is a strawberry red with the Lion Origami Zord gallivanting above him. To the side of him jumping on the rooftops are kuroko carrying a flamed version of the Honomoto family crest flag. The lion’s back compartment opens to reveal the helmet as the kuroko throw the flamed cloth with the crest down towards Logan.

    Logan jumps up and the cloth wraps around him to form the Red Ranger base suit as the pole holding the flag together turns into his Samurai Katana and attaches to his belt. The helmet clamps to his head as the Red Ranger strikes a pose and Logan returns to reality in his suit.

    [End Theme Music]

    [Scene 11]

    SENTAI FOOTAGE - SHINKENGER ACT 1

    Logan opens the buckle on his belt, pulling out a black disk and attaching it to the hilt of his sword. He draws his sword in calm, slow preparation and wields it with the same calm, collected swagger.

    Logan
    No need for introductions.

    Logan jumps into the fight and battles the Slayers outside two of the warehouses. He leaps and slashes his way through several Slayers, even some who try to jump him. He takes the fight to the dock and braves his way through several sneak attacks by Slayers, even two who try to jump him from the water.

    After several bouts of blocking, countering and slashing, Logan opens his belt to reveal a Red Disc. He tosses it up in the air and holds his katana as if to catch the disk on the hilt. He lifts the katana up and spins the disc as the lion pictures move rapidly to form an animation, the sword catching on fire. Logan aims it at the remaining Slayers and quickly makes short work of the remaining ones with the flames from his Samurai Katana. Turning around and striking a pose, the remaining Slayers spark with lightning and fall down, exploding behind Logan.

    END SENTAI FOOTAGE USE

    Logan turns his head deeper into the harbor as he hears multiple piercing screams. He tries to run to help and sees several Slayers chasing after a little girl and her mother. They duck into a garage of forklifts as Logan takes off after the Slayers. The Slayers have the little girl cowering in the corner while two have hold of her mother.

    Logan
    Oh, now that’s low! Attacking that girl’s mother right in front of her!

    Logan immediately grabs the Slayers and slashes them in turn. He rolls to the side, avoiding one about to kick him in the side and slashes it as well. He immediately reunites with the woman with her little girl.

    Logan
    You two okay?

    Little Girl
    Mommy! Mommy look! It’s a Red Power Ranger!

    Logan
    (smiles a little under his helmet) You two should get out of here.

    Woman
    You don’t have to tell us twice! Thank you! (She takes her little girl and flees out the garage, Logan following to ensure no slayers follow)

    Logan follows the source of more screams to find three workers being held by Slayers as Demona proceeds to absorb their souls. By the time Logan gets there however, the process is already complete.

    Logan
    Fallen soldier, stop right there!

    Demona
    Oh, not today Red Ranger. Maybe another day.

    He can’t do much however, as Demona teleports away with the three souls in tow through another gap, and the Slayers drag the three dead corpses through the gap.

    Logan
    NO! Damnit!

    Logan growls in frustration, before running back to Takumi.

    [Scene 12]

    Ext. Alma Valley Harbor

    Running toward Takumi, Logan slides down as a bright red light covers his body, dissipating as small fiery kanji symbols for “Fire.”

    Logan
    Takumi, are you okay?

    Takumi
    [moans] Nothing a hot shower and a bottle of aspirin won’t fix.

    Logan chuckles as he helps Takumi up, propping Takumi on his shoulder as they begin to walk toward the street.

    Takumi
    You know Logan, I’m proud of you. You took the situation into your own hands and handled it like a true Honomoto. You have truly honored your family.

    Logan
    It was nothing Jii. I only did it because you were getting your ass handed to you.

    Takumi
    [weak laugh] I thought I did pretty well if I do say so myself.

    Logan
    Then why did I have to step in for you.

    [The scene fades as the two walk into the sunset, voices fading away as they argue.]

    [Scene 13]

    Ext. Hell Dimension

    The sky is dark red, lightning filling it up.

    Oujou, in his Fallen form stands before his army of Slayers, with Demona at his side. They are standing on the banks of a river, filled with blood and the tortured souls of fallen victims. Behind him, and ancient ship can be seen floating along the Sanzu River. The air blows with the scent of decaying flesh passing over Oujou’s face.

    Oujou
    The time is now upon us. The world is a different place, devoid of spirits and sorcery. Human’s know nothing of the power we, the Fallen, wield. We may be weak, but our will is strong. We will take revenge against the descendants of those who have wronged us. ---
    I want you to take a look at me. It is because that whore failed that I am here before you today. She was strong before, but she wasn’t strong enough to vanquish me. Now, the spirit has been fractured. Only the power of fire is wielded. The others are nowhere to be found. This is our time to reclaim the Earth. Soon, we will have our revenge!

    Oujou raises his sword high in the air, lightning striking the tip as hordes of Slayers cheer on their leader. Oujou looks over toward Demona.

    Oujou
    [In a quieter tone] Soon, Demona, you will be queen of the human realm, and we will spread darkness over the land.

    Demona smiles maniacally as she holds onto Oujou.

    [Scene 14]

    Int. House - Night

    The Honomoto Mansion: a modest building on the northern edge of Alma Valley. It is decorated with Japanese scriptures and other decorations of Japanese noblemen.

    Takumi can be seen sitting in a chair as two kuroko dress his wounds, and he can be seen swallowing two pills and drinking a glass of water.

    Takumi
    Thank you.

    He motions for the kuroko to finish, and he gets up, rather slowly, to move toward Logan who is looking out the window, deep in thought.

    Takumi
    Logan, it’s time to summon the other rangers.

    Logan
    What? Other rangers?! [surprised]

    Takumi
    Yes, there are four other stones, similar to yours, which control the other elements.

    Logan
    But why, I handled those creatures pretty easily I thought.

    Takumi
    Those were only the beginning. Lord Oujou will only get stronger, and those creatures you fought were nothing more than grunts. More powerful creatures will come.

    Logan
    I’m not one who wants to get more people involved, but do it I guess.

    Takumi nods to Logan as he walks away. Jii pulls out his black brush morpher from his robes, and begins to write the symbol for “summon” in mid-air. He spins it, sending it out the window, slowly separating into four blasts of light, going in different directions.

    [Cut Scene]

    Ext. Streets

    The first light, a blue one, hits the pocket of someone’s pants, causing the phone to vibrate inside and a ringtone to go off.

    Raphael
    Nice, Party at the old mansion. Hell yeah, I’ve always wanted to rage it up there.

    Raphael begins heading toward the mansion, excited at all the girls who were going to be there.

    [Cut Scene]

    Int. Apartment

    The second light, a green one, heads toward the wires going into an apartment building, up the data lines and into the back of a computer. A screen pulls up, with an email the read “Secret Concert at Old Mansion. Free Monsters for drinks.”

    Jude
    Holy shit, free Monsters and a concert? Fuck yeah!

    She then grabs her coat and heads out of her apartment

    [Cut Scene]

    Ext. Streets

    A third, yellow light heads toward a girls bag, causing the phone inside to go off as a text message is received.

    Piper
    Really, free gift cards to Bath and Body Works for the first 100 people who get to the old mansion? I’m so there.

    [Cut Scene]

    Int. Convenience Store

    A fourth pink light heads toward the phone that was sitting on a counter as the lights in the building began shutting off. The cashier from before locks the doors and reaches for his phone when he sees a message.

    Ashley
    Whoa, Anti-Flag’s having a free concert at the old mansion? I better make it in time.

    [Scene 15]
    Ext. Courtyard

    The courtyard of the Honomoto mansion is filled with candles and a table with some finger food on it, as various sounds can be heard coming up the walk way. The four walk in around the same time, looking at the old, oddly decorated place.

    Raphael
    Whoa, this is the party? What the hell…

    Jude
    Party? Where’s the concert and the free Monsters?

    Piper
    I thought they were giving away gift cards?

    Ashley
    Fuck! No concert?

    Takumi
    No, but there is some food if you are interested.

    The four turn around to see Takumi and Logan facing them, when Jude immediately moves to the table and grabs a handful of crackers, shoving a couple in her mouth.

    Jude
    [Mouthful] Sow, whay di you caw uz herw?

    Takumi
    I called you four here because you have been chosen to fight evil.

    Raphael
    Okay…what?

    Logan
    [annoyed] You four have been chosen to fight the evil forces of Lord Oujou, that guy who attacked the harbor and killed all those people, and his army of demons with magic cell phones/brushes that allow you to control the elements and become power rangers---

    The four look at him, in shock and surprise.

    Jude is the first to bust up laughing, followed by Ashley and Raphael, except for Piper who is still disappointed about not getting a gift card.

    Takumi
    You don’t believe us I presume. [He looks back at Logan, annoyed at the four]

    Ashley
    Are you kidding? [still laughing] You expect us to believe that demons are attacking the city, and we’re going to fight them in spandex?

    Logan
    [As serious as possible] Yeah, pretty much.

    Takumi then steps forward, pulls out four stones from his robes and gives each of them one.

    Piper
    What do we do with these?

    Takumi
    Just wait.

    Takumi pulls out his brush morpher, draws the kanji for reveal, which separates into four symbols that each hit one of the four. Their bodies begin to glow their respective colors, and blasts of light erupt from their eyes. Each see a representation of the Great Spirit, their respective zords: Bear for Jude, Turtle for Ashley, Monkey for Piper, and Dragon for Raphael. They then see a recap of Logan’s previous battle with the Slayers.

    Suddenly, the four settle down to normal as the presentation is over.

    Takumi
    So, you have seen all there is to see. The stones have shown you everything. What do you say now about fighting Lord Oujou?

    Silence fills the air as they each look at each other, clearly their minds have doubts, but they know the truth.

    Jude
    ---[quietly] Alright, I’m in.

    Ashley
    ---[more confident] I guess I’m on board too.

    Raphael
    ---[suave] Well, I should be able to get some girls out of this.

    Piper
    ---[confident, but quiet] I’ll do it also.

    Takumi looks around at the four, clearly proud that he now has the team together.

    Takumi
    Then from this moment forth, let you all be known as the Power Rangers Bushido Spirits!

    They all looks at each other as the scene fades to black.

    [Scene 1]

    Int. Ship

    The Forsaken Angel, an ancient, decaying ship that serves as the vessel that carries the Fallen along the Sanzu River.

    [The camera moves in a slow circle, surveying the interior of the ship, while screams and flashes of lightning emanate from outside the ship.]

    A demonic hand reaches from outside the ship as Lord Oujou crawls up the hull, sparks of energy bouncing off his body. He collapses on the floor of the ship, crawling over toward a bottle. He grabs the bottle, breaking off the top and begins drinking the white liquid: sake derived from the waters of the Sanzu River. His screams and pain begin to subside as the alcohol moves through his system, causing him to collapse into a drunken sleep.

    The scene changes to Demona walking down a path away from the Sanzu River, walking past various landmarks across the red landscape. She turns around, acknowledging the silence that suddenly filled the air.

    Demona
    Hmm, it appears Lord Oujou has gotten into the supply of sake. That should keep him quite for awhile.

    She continues walking across the landscape when she comes across a seal similar to the one Oujou’s spirit was in, and a clay jar.

    Demona
    Yes, this is it!

    She picks the jar up, opens it as two ghostly waves of light fly out of the jar, one blue and one red. She then picks up the seal and breaks the stone, releasing a cloud of greenish colored smoke onto the landscape, which then begins to coalesce and form into the shape of something similar to an octopus.

    Demona
    After all this searching, you have finally been found!

    A look of satisfaction begins to crawl across her face as the three forms circle around her, one passing the camera causing it to go to black.

    Int. Mansion

    [Camera facing rangers]

    Jude, Ashley and Piper are sitting in a room in the Honomoto mansion, each sitting next to each other. Piper and Ashley are sitting Japanese style, their legs folded with their feet pointing back and their hands on their thighs, while Jude is sitting Indian style, hunched over as if she is bored.

    [Focus on Ashley and Piper]

    Ashley
    [Whispers to Piper]So, how did Raphael get out of this?

    Piper
    I don’t know, but I’m seriously missing out on a good weekend. We haven’t had a nice day like this in awhile.

    [Camera moves to hallway leading to room]

    Takumi walks in, with books in hand and four brushes.

    Takumi
    Hmm, no Raphael? It appears he does not value his samurai training. I’ll need to make sure he gets some one on one training later.

    [Camera focuses on Ashley]

    Ashley laughs to himself as he realizes that Raphael’s evening won’t go as he planned.

    [Camera back on Takumi]
    [At Ashley]Is there something you would like to share?

    [Back to Ashley]
    [Surprised]Oh…no sir.

    [Back to Takumi]Good, then I’d like to begin this class with a review of last week’s assignment. So, [In Japanese] Dono yō ni yo ka? [English subtitles: how are you?]

    Ashley
    [In Japanese]Watashi wa geida

    Takumi and Piper look at Ashley oddly as Jude busts up laughing, falling onto her back and clutching her stomach.

    Ashley
    [Confused]What? What did I say? Didn’t I say “I’m well”?

    Takumi kneels down and puts his hand on Ashley’s shoulder.

    Takumi
    No my son. But I’m glad you have, how would you say it, come out of the closet to us?

    Jude is still laughing her ass off as Piper draws a smirk and Takumi begins laughing slightly as a smile crawls across his face.

    Jude
    [In between laughs]Wow, that made my day complete!

    Ashley
    [Embarrassed]Okay, you all can stop just about any time now!

    Takumi
    [drying his eyes]Yes, Ashley is right. We need to get back to work. Jude, [in Japanese] Dono yō ni yo ka? [English subtitles: how are you?]

    Jude
    [Pushing herself back up][with fake asian accent] I don’t know. Ask me in Engrish.

    Ashley and Piper look at her, with a look of “Oh Shit.” Takumi starts getting angry, but then turns around to hide his anger.

    Jude
    [In Japanese] Watashi wa hijō ni yoidesu. Ka wa, o shiri ga suki? [English subtitles: I’m very good, would you like a spanking?]

    Takumi turns around; looking infuriated, but then turns his attention to Piper, who looks puzzled.

    Takumi
    Piper, Dono yō ni yo ka?

    Piper
    [In Japanese]Watashi ni wa yoku, watashi orei. [English subtitles: I’m well, thank you.]

    Takumi looks pleased

    Takumi
    Anata wa kangei sa rete. [English subtitles: You are welcome.]

    Ashley looks at the two, when a sudden urge to show off comes over him.

    Ashley
    Takumi, Doko no go shujindesu ka?

    Jude and Piper then both look at him, each with a look of shock on their faces. Takumi looks at him disappointed.

    Takumi
    Ashley, you’ve used the wrong translation once again. And I am proud to say that I do not have a husband.

    Piper
    [laughing slightly, to Ashley]Maybe that’s why you have the Pink Ranger powers.

    Jude just rolls over laughing again, while Ashley looks annoyed.

    Ashley
    Hey, just ‘cause I’m a guy doesn’t mean I have to be gay to wear pink.

    Takumi
    I believe that is enough language training for the day. Let’s move outside where I’ll ask you to draw the kanji for combine and to summon your zords.

    Ext. Outside

    The Honomoto Mansion courtyard, with desks set up for the rangers to practice their calligraphy. Takumi has already handed them paper, who has asked them to draw the kanji for their respective elements.

    [Camera on Piper]

    Ashley eagerly draws her symbol, watching as it lights up yellow signifying that she has drawn it correctly.

    [Camera on Ashley]

    Ashley’s head rests on the paper as he sleeps, the side of his face covered with black ink. His head begins to slip off the table when he wakes up with a snort, rubs his face and sees black ink on his hands as he retracts his hands.

    [Camera on Jude]

    Jude is shown working busily at her desk, but is shown to be drawing stick figures instead of kanji. A shadow starts to fall over her paper as Jude turns around.

    Jude
    What the---

    Takumi then hits her over the head with a piece of newspaper

    Jude
    Owww, what the heck was that for?

    Takumi
    You need to be drawing kanji, not stick figures.

    Jude
    What do I know? They all look the same to me---

    Takumi
    You will need to know the difference in battle; it is the difference between defeating your enemies and ending up as one of the Fallen’s batch of spare bodies.

    Jude
    Okay, that’s kind of creepy---

    [Camera cuts to the door leading from the house to the courtyard.]

    Logan pushes opening the door and closes it as a small, miniature red lion walks next to him. The rangers see it and immediately get up to see the little creature.

    Ashley
    Hey Logan, what is that?

    Logan
    What—oh, yeah. This is the lion origami zord.

    Piper
    It’s so cute! Can I pet it?

    Logan
    Sure, but it’s a little---

    Pipers pushes past the other three, kneeling down to try and pet the miniature lion, but it sees her a scurries off.

    Logan
    ---skittish.

    Ashley tries to pick up the lion as it passes by, but the lion rushes past him, flies up and smashes him in the head, knocking him out.

    Raphael
    Hey guys, I’m here—whoa!

    [The camera focuses on Raphael]

    Raphael walks in, wearing a black tuxedo, but the Lion rushes past him as Raphael tries to jump to avoid the thing, but ends up tripping over Ashley’s unconscious body, and stumbles onto Piper’s desk, landing in the still wet paper. He gets up, looking at his tux and looking shocked.

    Raphael
    I—I---

    Logan
    Sorry you ruined your tux Raph.

    Raphael
    [Annoyed, still in shock]This Tux was for my date tonight. What the hell am I gonna do now?

    Logan
    Well, you could finish up your training with us. We still have a lot of work to do.

    Raphael just looks at him in annoyance, but heads back inside to change out of his tuxedo and put his bags somewhere.

    [Scene 3]

    Int. Ship

    Demona appears on The Forsaken Angel through a crack in the wood, as well as Octovilius, now back in his physical body, carrying the jar from before with the spirits of the two monsters still inside. They find Oujou in his human form, slumped over on a wall of the ship; with the bottle of sake still in hand, puddles of the liquid covering the floor around him.

    Octovilus
    Oh my, it appears that things haven’t changed too much since the last time we were free.

    Demona
    Yes, you are still as annoyingly obvious as ever.

    Demona kneels down, trying to wake the sleeping creature up, slapping his face lightly to awake him. Oujou then begins to stir, still heavily drunk from earlier.

    Oujou
    Err, what is it?

    Demona
    My lord, I have not only found Octovilius, but I have also found our first batch of monsters. They will be able to defeat that Power Ranger easily, and will be able to harvest the human’s souls for you.

    Oujou
    Fine, bring it a body.

    Demona
    But my lord, we have two---

    Oujou
    [Yelling]Bring it a body!

    Two slayers then drag out a corpse, which appears to be that of a gang member.

    Octovilius
    …As you wish my lord.

    Octovilius then begins speaking an ancient spell, while carrying the jar that holds the spirits. The jar then begins to glow red, along with the body, and Octovilius then opens the jar, releasing the two spirits into the human body. Once the spirits are absorbed, the eyes of the body open up, and the body gets up, which then begins to bubble and change into a monster. [Shinkenger: Act 2 monster]
    Dualisticon
    Ah, it’s good to be awake again.

    Oujou
    You [pointing sword], go to the human world and collect as many humans as you can. I want to be able to swim in human souls.

    Dualisticon
    Yes Lord Oujou. I will not disappoint.

    The monster then begins to warp and move through a crack in the ship’s hull.

    Demona
    [To Octovilius]I sure hope you know what you’re doing.

    [Scene 4]

    Ext. City

    [Shinkenger Footage, Act 2]

    A giant, metallic tentacle hits a high-rise building, glass and debris falling to the streets below. Screams can be heard everywhere as the monster below whips his “hair” around, attacking other buildings and people.

    Dualisticon
    You better run! [Maniacal laugh]Your screams make this all the more fun for me.

    Slayers begin rounding the humans up, dragging them to the ground and swinging their swords at them.

    Dualisticon
    [To the slayers]Don’t kill them all at once. I want to have some fun first. Fear makes their souls all the more delectable.

    [Original Footage]

    Dualisticon’s body begins to bubble as it glows red, which then begins to shift shape, growing a huge face in its midsection, its whole body changing into a new form. [Shinkenger, Act 1 Monster]
    Dualisticon
    [In higher voice]Now, hold still---

    Dualisticon points his swords at a crowd of humans, when a blast of energy is released from each blade. As the crowd falls, Slayers move in and hold each one, while Dualisticon proceeds to take the souls from their bodies, his eyes glowing yellow as the humans glow as the humans’ glow red.

    Dualisticon
    [After finishing the draining process]Slayers, take the bodies back to the Sanzu River.

    [Scene 5]

    Ext. Honomoto Mansion Courtyard

    Logan and Takumi are seen sparring with each other, the sounds of wooden swords filling the courtyard.

    Takumi
    Keep focus Logan, stay concentrated on the battle.

    Logan
    I’m trying Tak. It doesn’t help that you keep yelling things out at me.

    Their wooden swords keep moving, but Takumi finds an opening and jabs at the side of his body, causing Logan to flinch and Takumi sweeps Logan off his feet with his sword.

    Takumi
    [Looking down at Logan]The Fallen will not play fair, they will try to distract you, and they will take any opening they can get.

    He lends his hand out to help Logan up, who dusts himself off once he’s up.

    Logan
    ---Sounds like fun.

    Int. Mansion

    The rangers are sitting in the same room that they were having Japanese class, getting ready for lunch. They have been talking for a bit, mostly about struggling with their teachings.

    Jude
    It’d be nice if I could get these freakin kanji symbols down. They all look the same to me.

    Ashley
    At least you can speak the language. I can’t even say something simple without mixing the words up.

    Logan
    Relax guys; we’re all having trouble with this. I’m struggling as much as the rest of you.

    Raphael
    What are you talking about? You’ve got everything down. You don’t even have to come to these class sessions of ours.

    Jude
    For sure. If you’re struggling, what does that makes us, failures.

    Ashley
    At least you can say things in Japanese without coming off stupid. With my luck, I’ll write a symbol and a male stripper will appear mid-battle.

    Piper
    I just wish I could get a handle on sword fighting. You seem to be able to do all of it naturally.

    Logan
    That’s bull. I’ve had to work just as hard to get where I am now.

    [Camera on kuroko]

    The kuroko start to bring in various dishes for the rangers, ranging from a chicken salad for Piper, a burrito for Raphael, a couple of slices of pepperoni pizza for Ashley, a turkey sandwich for Logan, and a huge burger for Jude.

    Jude
    [Wide Eyed]Wow, I didn’t know that the kuroko could make a burger like this.

    Ashley
    [Mouthful]I haven’t had pizza like this since I visited New York.

    Logan
    [Embarrassed]Yeah, there’s a reason for that. Some of the kuroko are classically trained cooks, especially in different styles. My Dad got tired of Japanese food really quickly.

    Piper
    Your dad? Where is he now?

    Logan
    I---

    Takumi runs into the room, out of breath from running across the mansion.

    Takumi
    You must hurry. The Fallen are attacking the downtown shopping center, and they’ve brought a new monster.

    Logan
    Alright everyone, this is what we’ve been training for. Let’s go take care of them.

    Ashley
    Fuck yeah.

    Piper
    Let’s do it.

    Raphael
    Let’s get this over with. I’ve got that date later tonight.

    The rangers start running out and grabbing their morphers from their pockets, while Jude is slowly getting up, trying to get a bite from her cheeseburger.

    Ashley runs back, grabs Jude by the arm, pulling her up.

    Jude
    Hey, I haven’t eaten all day.

    Ashley
    They’ll make you another one later. We gotta go, now.

    [Scene 6]

    Ext. City

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger, Act 2]

    Dualisticon is back in his first form, slamming his whip into buildings and rounding up people as slayers grab more humans from off the street.

    Dualisticon
    Come on, get a little closer. All I want is your soul and your lifeless body.

    The slayers bring more humans to Dualisticon as he steals the soul of a woman, throwing her body to the ground as a slayer drags it away.

    Dualisticon
    Bring me more humans. We can’t leave until---

    [End Shinkenger Footage]

    Logan
    You can leave anytime you want.

    Dualisticon
    What, who said that?

    Dualisticon turns around, facing the five rangers who are standing side-by-side.

    Dualisticon
    Who are you, the Putty Patrol?

    Ashley
    We’re the ones who’re gonna wipe the ground with your face.

    Jude
    You might want to chill with all the “your face” lines. That can get old quick.

    Logan
    Later Jude, we’re in battle.

    Dualisticon
    Your doomed, that’s what you are!

    Dualisticon begins spinning his whip around; creating a gust of wind that forces the rangers back. The monster quickly changes back to his other form and begins shooting at them, which the rangers barely dodge.

    Logan
    Everyone, morph!

    Rangers
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    Each ranger then begins drawing the kanji for their element: Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Wood. The element each ranger had drawn immediately shoots back at them. A flame shoots fire at Logan, the water drop shoots a flurry of water at Raphael, the tree shoots a whirlwind of leaves at Jude, the wind gust burst a blast of air at Ashley, and the rock fires a dust-devil at Piper. The elements surround them to form the ranger suit, Samurai Katana, and helmet.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger, Act Two]

    Each ranger begins to battle a group of slayers each, while red takes on Dualisticon himself, who is back in his first form.

    [Focus on Raphael]

    Raphael spins the black disc on his Samurai Katana, which then glows blue and changes shape into a bow and arrow.

    Raphael
    Tidal Bow!

    Raphael then attaches the blue dragon disc to his bow, and begins shooting slayers out of the windows.

    [Focus on Ashley]
    Ashley spins the disc on his Samurai Katana, which then glows pink and changes shape in a fan.

    Ashley
    Cyclone Fan!

    Ashley spins around, which hits all the Slayers successively, and he then spins in the other direction, which hits all the Slayers and causes them to explode.

    [Focus on Jude]
    Jude spins the disc on her Samurai Katana, which then glows green and changes shape into a spear.

    Jude
    Forest Javelin!

    Jude swipes around at the Slayers who are standing in a circle around her, while swinging her javelin around in the opposite direction, which causes a green whirlwind that makes all of the Slayers explode.

    [Focus on Logan]

    Logan catches up to Dualisticon, while spinning the disc on his Samurai Katana.

    Logan
    Inferno Buster!

    Logan lunges his huge broad-sword at Dualisticon, who blocks the attack with his sword. Dualisticon swings at Logan, but Logan is able to block the attack. Logan then swings down at Dualisticon, but he moves out of the way and Logan hits the rubble below.

    [Focus on Piper, close to Logan and Dualisticon]

    Piper chases a group of slayers, while spinning the disc on her katana.

    Piper
    Stone Cutter!

    She uses the boomerang-type weapon’s blades to swipe at the Slayers, knocking down two. She then sees an opening, and throws it at a group of Slayers, who then explode.

    [Camera follows Stone Cutter]

    The Stone Cutter continues on its trajectory, heading straight for Logan’s head.

    Piper
    Logan, look out!

    Logan notices the weapon heading his way, and moves to avoid the blades.

    Dualisticon
    Thanks for giving me the opening!

    While Logan is distracted, Dualisticon swings at him, which knocks him into a building window about two stories up. Once he hits the wall, he falls to the ground as gravel falls on him, the Inferno Buster reverting back into its Katana form.

    [End Shinkenger Footage]

    Piper runs over to protect Logan, when Dualisticon makes his final attack. Piper stands up to take the blow for Logan, getting thrown high into the air as a huge explosion rocks the battle, her body falling back to the Earth.

    Ashley
    Piper!

    Jude
    Logan!

    Raphael
    Holy Shit!

    Logan slowly gets up, walking past Piper, who automatically demorphs as she lies struggling to move on the ground. As he runs off, the other rangers show up and fight off Dualisticon and the slayers, while they receive the full force of the slayers.

    Dualisticon
    I guess it’s time to defeat these other rangers while red runs away.

    Dualisticon makes attempts at another strike, but then starts falling over in pain, grabbing at his chest.

    Dualisticon
    Argh, I’m out of power. But I’ll be back!

    Dualisticon then begins to glow red, warping into a gap between a piece of concrete and the ground below.

    Ashley, Jude, and Raphael demorph and run over to check on Piper, when Logan shows up again, running toward the four as he demorphs. As he gets closer, the three of them look over at Logan, giving him a very cold death-glare.

    Logan
    I---I can explain---

    Raphael
    [Angrily]Save it! If you’re gonna be an asshole and leave someone lying to die while you run off, then I’m done with this shit.

    Jude
    I couldn’t agree more with you.

    Ashley
    [Glaring at Logan]Let’s get out of here.

    Logan
    Wait… guys---

    The three get up, helping Piper up, while they begin to help her back to the mansion.

    Piper
    Hold on. I’ll meet you three back at the mansion.

    [Focus on Piper and Logan facing each other]

    Piper
    So, what do we do now?

    [Scene 7]

    Int. Ship

    Back on the Forsaken Angel, Octovilius is looking around the ship, searching for and organizing all his notes from years past.

    [Camera focuses over Octovilius’ shoulder]

    As he walks over to a table and begins putting scraps of paper in a leather notebook, Oujou’s drunken, human form pushes itself up, and with a burst of crimson flames changes into his monster form. Octovilius turns around after seeing the flash on the hull of the ship, noticing Oujou awake.

    Octovilius
    My lord, it’s good to see you awake. I was just organizing my---

    Suddenly, Oujou grabs Octovilius by the throat and throws him against the opposite wall of the ship. Oujou stumbles around as his legs are still shaky from the sake.

    Oujou
    [Drunkenly]You piece of scum!

    Octovilius
    [Trying to push himself up]My lord, what’s gotten into you?

    Oujou
    You did this to me! You turned me into this!

    Oujou swings his sword at the defenseless Octovilius, but he barely roles out of the way.

    Octovilius
    Lord Oujou, you are delirious from the sake. You need to calm down.

    Oujou
    [Wildly]You need to die!

    Oujou swings his sword again, but Octovilius is able to stumble out of the way, picking up a piece of the stone from which he was sealed in. As Oujou regains his footing, he comes in for another attack, but Octovilius recites an incantation which causes the fragment to glow a deep navy blue. The fragment then launches at Oujou, splitting into four beams of light which catch his wrists and ankles. The lights thrown him against the hull of the ship, locking him in place as Octovilius regains his composure.

    Octovilius
    Slayers, bring a captive to us.

    The camera focuses on a door in the back of the ship, two slayers walking out with their backs facing the camera, dragging a screaming girl, around age 19, to the spot Lord Oujou is held in place. As the Slayers hold the girl still in an upright position facing Oujou, Octovilius recites another incantation which causes Oujou’s eyes to glow yellow and the girls to glow red, her soul forcefully transferred into Oujou’s body.

    Octovilius
    Get the body out of my sight.

    Once Oujou’s eyes fade, he slumps over, Octovilius releasing the lights constraining Oujou. His body slumps over back into a sleep, as a worried look crosses over Octovilius’ face. Nevertheless, he shrugs it off and gets back to his notes.

    [Scene 8]

    Int. Mansion

    Raphael, Jude, and Ashley are back at the mansion, packing things into their bags quickly. Takumi walks in with a concerned look on his face.

    Takumi
    What’s going on? Where are Logan and Piper?

    Logan
    We’re right here.

    The camera focuses on the door to the mansion as Logan walks in with Piper, propping her up on his shoulder as she limps in. Takumi runs over, even more concerned than before.

    Takumi
    What happened?

    Raphael
    Logan ditched Piper to die, that’s what happened.

    Piper
    No Raphael, you’re wrong.

    Ashley
    What are you talking about? We saw him run off after you blocked that attack.

    Logan
    Guys, you’ve got it all wrong. Piper told me to go help a little girl that was hiding behind the rubble.

    [Flashback Scene – Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act 2]

    Logan
    A girl was hiding behind a stack of debris, so I ran over to check up on her and get her out of there. I handed the girl off to her mother who was looking for her, and then headed back, that’s all.

    [End Flashback Scene – Original Footage]

    Piper
    I saw the girl and told him to go check on her. I didn’t want her getting caught in the crossfire.

    Jude
    So, you’re telling us…we overreacted for nothing?

    Logan
    Pretty much…

    Raphael
    Wow, [scratches head awkwardly] that kinda makes me feel like a dick for chewing you out.

    Logan
    I don’t mind. You were concerned for Piper, I understand that.

    Piper
    Yeah, I really appreciate it. But next time, let us explain things first. [smiling]

    Ashley
    I guess we can live with that.

    All the rangers and Takumi look at each other in silence, almost as if the conversation is sinking in.

    Takumi
    ---Oh, that reminds me.

    Takumi walks outside of the room as everyone looks confused. He comes back out, carrying a wooden box with the Honomoto crest inscribed on top.

    Takumi
    It’s time to give the rest of you you’re zords.

    Jude
    ---Our zords?

    Takumi
    Yes, they were manifested by the stones when they detected Oujou’s essence was free again. I held off on giving them to you until the time was right.

    Takumi opens the box, first pulling out a black and blue hexagon with the water kanji inscribed on top.

    Takumi
    This is your Dragon Origami Zord.

    Takumi places it in Raphael’s hand, which then opens up into the form of a dragon and flies up, resting on Raphael’s shoulder.

    Raphael
    Killer!

    Takumi
    Piper, this is your Monkey Origami zord.

    Takumi then pulls out a yellow and black triangle with the kanji for Earth inscribed on it, placing it in Piper’s hand, which then opens up into the shape of a monkey.

    Piper
    Oh, it’s so cute!

    The zord makes a noise as Piper hugs it.

    Takumi
    This is your Bear Origami Zord, Jude

    Takumi places the green and black square in Jude’s hand, inscribed with the kanji for Wood. The square opens into the form of a bear, which then jumps up. Jude then proceeds to juggle the zord, trying not to drop it.

    Takumi pulls out a silver and black circle, with a pink kanji for Air inscribed on it. He places it in Ashley’s hands, which then opens into the form of a turtle.

    Takumi
    This is your Turtle Origami Zord

    Ashley starts juggling the zord as it tries to get closer.

    Ashley
    Eww, Eww, Eww, Eww!

    Raphael
    Dude…stop being such a girl.

    Ashley
    [Defensively]What, I don’t like turtles.

    Takumi
    Aside from fear of turtles, you can summon your zords when the battle escalates, and when the enemy cannot be defeated with just the zords, they can be combined to create the Bushido Megazord.

    Jude
    Sweet!

    [Scene 9]

    Int. Convention Centre –

    In the convention centre, a panel is going on with multiple actors. The onlookers gaze eagerly at them. Several of them are cosplaying, one as MMPR Red, one as Mystic Force Yellow, an SPD Pink and SPD Yellow, two Jungle Fury Wolf Rangers, a Black Wild Force Ranger, three VR Troopers and one Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. The others are dressed as Ichigo from Bleach, Keroro from Sgt. Frog and Sailor Mercury from Sailor Moon.

    Actor
    …and then they said “No, no, no. We want you to do it like this.”

    The panel room is burst into as Dualisticon is in his long range form. He starts shooting at several of the attendees as they make a rush to the fire exit. Several Slayers capture Ichigo , the Black Wild Force Ranger and Mystic Force Yellow.

    Dualisticon
    Haha. I capture two rangers in one go!

    Demona
    (Walking towards Dualisticon) Those aren’t the real rangers you idiot.

    Dualisticon
    What?

    Demona
    You’ve seen them – Since when did they wear those?! Their yellow ranger isn’t even a man!

    Dualisticon
    Give me a break! Until recently, I thought there was only one ranger, not five!

    Demona
    [Annoyed]Just get on with...

    Dualisticon
    Fine, well...open wide rangers!

    The cosplaying rangers and cosplay Ichigo’s eyes start to glow red as Dualisticon’s glow yellow. Their souls are sucked dry relatively quickly as the Slayers make off with their bodies, with a crowd of convention attendees running outside.

    [Scene 10]

    Int. Mansion -
    Back at the mansion, the rangers are talking when Takumi rushes down the stairs.

    Takumi
    Rangers! Dualisticon is back! He’s at the convention centre!

    Raphael
    That’s one thing I don’t get – How are you guys detecting monster attacks?

    Takumi
    Special technology that allows us to survey the globe with overheard maps so we can detect Fallen activity.

    Ashley
    Impressive technology, [pause] assuming you’ve never used Google Earth.

    Takumi
    We can talk about that later! Now you have to do battle!

    Logan
    How about it then; you guys trust me?

    Piper
    I definitely do.

    Raphael
    I’ve trusted worse.

    Jude
    I certainly trust you.

    Ashley
    If everyone else trusts you, I do too. As much as we want to kill you for bull-crapping about your skills and what we thought you did to Piper. [laughs]

    Takumi
    Remember, the zords will be on hand if you need them [as the rangers rush outside]

    The five rangers face outside of the mansion in a V formation as they ready their Brush Morphers, converting them to Brush Mode. Logan does it first, and the other four do it after him.

    Logan
    Ready?!

    Piper, Ashley, Jude and Raphael
    Ready!

    All Five
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    The rangers draw their Brush Morphers upwards and start to draw the kanji symbol for their element: Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Wood. As soon as they finish drawing the symbols, they flip them around as they turns into an image of their actual element. For Red it turns into the single flame; Blue, a water drop; Pink, a tornado; Green, a tree, and Yellow a rock. They press the morph button on the morphers and are transported to an alternate dimension to morph.

    [Cue Theme Music]

    [A wall of fire races across the screen]

    Logan finds himself in a burning forest as the sky above is a strawberry red with the Lion Origami Zord gallivanting above him. To the side of him through the trees are Kuroko carrying a flamed version of the Honomoto family crest flag as the lion’s back compartment opens to reveal the helmet. The Kuroko then throw the flamed cloth with the crest down towards Logan.

    Logan jumps up and the cloth wraps around him to form the Red Ranger suit as the pole holding the flag together turns into his Samurai Katana and attaches to his belt. The helmet clamps to his head as the Red Ranger strikes a pose.

    [Water falls down the screen]

    Raphael finds himself on a small island with water above him acting as the sky and water below him. Suddenly, the dragon origami zord surfaces from the upper level as Raphael jumps on it. The dragon submerges into the lower ocean as it seems like a blue colored Honomoto family crest flag is waiting for him. It wraps around him to form the Blue Ranger outfit, the pole attaching to his belt and turning into his Samurai Katana.

    The dragon re-emerges and releases the blue ranger helmet from a compartment on its back, Raphael drops from the dragon as the helmet clamps around his head and he lands back on the island, the Blue Ranger striking a pose.

    [A tornado moves across the screen]

    Ashley is suspended in mid air in a ballerina pose as a gust of pink wind surrounds him, the turtle zord crawling before him. The gust of wind increases pace to turn into a hurricane. Ashley then does a twirl and jumps down onto the turtle zord and uses it as a spring board to jump into another gust of wind holding a pink Honomoto family crest flag.

    Ashley jumps and spins towards the flag bending one knee and raising his arms up in the air. The flag then proceeds to wrap around him to form the pink ranger suit, the pole turning into a Samurai Katana and attaching to his belt. The Turtle Zord opens its back compartment and reveals the Pink Ranger helmet, Ashley jumping out of the hurricane as the helmet latches onto his head and the Pink Ranger strikes a pose in mid-air.

    [Leaves race across the screen]

    Jude sits calmly in a forest as the bear zord stomps towards her. She looks up to find one of the Kuroko cutting a tree down, said tree falling towards her which turns into a Green Honomoto family crest flag. Jude then stands up as the flag wraps around her to form the Green Ranger suit, and the pole turns into a Samurai Katana which attaches to her belt.

    The bear zord then stomps towards her, knocking over several trees as the helmet pops out of the back of the zord. Jude jumps between several trees as they collapse to catch her helmet as it latches onto her head. She lands on the pile of logs as the Green Ranger strikes a pose.

    [A dirt-devil races across the screen]

    Piper stands in a field comprising solely of soil, looking around as if she’s waiting for something. Suddenly, the monkey zord grabs her and starts swinging in mid-air with her. Piper leaps off of the monkey and seems to dive towards a yellow Honomoto family crest flag. Piper dives into the Earth, being immersed in it as the flag wraps around her to form the yellow ranger suit, the Samurai Katana forming on her belt from the flagpole.

    The monkey zord pops open the helmet from its back compartment as it launches in the air. Piper surfaces, leaping into the air to grab it. It latches around her head as she crashes back down onto the soil. The Yellow Ranger strikes a pose.

    [Scene 11]

    [Sentai Footage, Shinkenger Act One]

    Dualisticon is in his Long-Range form on the stairs of the convention centre, terrorizing innocent civilians as several Slayers help him. An Asian civilian is rolled down the stairs by a Slayer as Dualisticon raises his swords to kill him as the civilian whimpers.

    Dualisticon
    It will all be over soon! So quit complaining!

    Dualisticon turns around to notice all five rangers striking him with their Samurai Katanas, knocking him back. Raphael and Piper help the civilian up as Ashley, Jude and Logan clutch their Katanas on their guard for Dualisticon to get back up.

    Piper
    Are you okay sir?!

    Raphael
    Run, you’re safe now!

    Civilian
    Thank you! (He flees)

    Dualisticon
    Back for more are you?!

    He shoots at them with both of his swords. All five rangers backflip and land back on top of the stairs, a Honomoto crest flag banner now behind them.

    Dualisticon
    Just what are you guys playing at?!

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Logan draws his Samurai Katana in front of a red background, then a red-lit Honomoto banner and points it forward.

    Logan
    [While standing and resting the Katana over his shoulder] What are we playing at? We’re here to stop you.

    The camera pans to a close-up of Logan’s helmet from the side.

    Raphael draws his Samurai Katana in front of a blue background, then a blue-lit Honomoto banner, arms stretched out wide. He then does a slash downwards then strikes a pose.

    Raphael
    Your soul collecting days are over!

    The camera pans to a close-up of Raphael’s helmet from the side.

    Ashley draws his Samurai Katana and raises it up in the air in front of a pink background, then a pink-lit Honomoto banner. He circles it around and holds it in front of him.

    Ashley
    Yeah, I’m a guy, and I’m the Pink Ranger. You got a problem with that you ugly fuck?

    [Original Footage]

    The footage switches back to the convention stairs as the other rangers stare at him.

    Logan
    It’s no big deal what color you are Ash. Get on with it.

    Ashley
    Right, right.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    The scene changes back to the pink lit banner as the camera pans to Ashley’s helmet from the side/

    Jude draws her Samurai Katana in front of a green background, then a green-lit Honomoto banner. She flips it behind her as she strikes a pose, then she stands and casually moves her hand up the blade.

    Jude
    Why don’t you go back where you came from?!

    Piper draws her Samurai Katana in front of a yellow background, then a yellow lit Honomoto banner. She points it forward, then moves it down, upwards, then holds it out in front of her tilting it.

    Piper
    We’ll make sure your reign of terror is ended in honor of Chiyoko’s memory!

    The footage changes back to the convention centre stairs as everyone but Logan kneels. Logan moves his hand up his Samurai Katana’s blade.

    Logan
    We are the guardians of the Earth. We are the---

    Jude and Ashley stand up first, and then Raphael and Piper as they raise their Katanas in their air, then slash downwards.

    All
    ---Power Rangers---

    Logan
    [looks up as the camera has a closeup on him] Bushido

    All
    [as the camera shows them all striking a pose] Spirits!

    [Original Footage]

    Takumi contacts the rangers through their Brush Morphers.

    Takumi
    Remember rangers, as long as you can keep the pressure on him, he won’t be able to change forms.

    Logan
    Got it.

    Ashley
    Got a plan, fearless leader?

    Logan
    You guys handle the Slayers. This freak’s mine.

    The other rangers nod in agreement.

    Dualisticon
    [snores, waking up] Oh, I’m sorry! You quite finished loving yourselves?!

    Jude
    Yup.

    Dualisticon
    Oh, good. ---Slayers, attack!

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger, Act One]

    The rangers rush down the stairs to confront the Slayers. Each one slashes through them with their Samurai Katanas with relative ease. Logan slashes through a few of them on his way to confront Dualisticon.

    [Original Footage]

    Dualisticon
    Come and get me Red Ranger! [Turns to flee]

    Logan
    You get back here!! [He takes off after him]

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Raphael cuts his way through them with ease, even managing to separate two of them who try to strike him at once.

    Raphael
    Don’t touch the spandex!

    He slashes the two Slayers and advances towards another group. After slashing several of them, he spins the disk on the hilt of his Samurai Katana as it turns into a bow and arrow.

    Raphael
    Tidal Bow!

    Raphael opens his belt buckle and takes out the blue disc. He places it on the silver attachment on the bow and proceeds to aim at the Slayers and pulls the arrow back. It glows with blue energy.

    Raphael
    Soggy Slayers in three…two…one…FIRE! Oh sorry, I meant burnt Slayers!

    He fires the arrow that turns into several blue arrows at the group of Slayers as they all explode.

    Piper makes her way through her own portion of Slayers. One takes a strike at her but Piper blocks it with her sword as it pushes her back. Eventually, she manages to fight it off and knock another Slayer down the stairs. She then spins the disk on her Samurai Katana as it turns into the Stone Cutter.

    Piper
    Stone Cutter!

    She opens her belt, takes the yellow disc and attaches it to the Stone Cutter. She at first has trouble, blocking Slayers’ swords with the weapon and pushing them off her when they try to pin her down with their swords. Eventually, after getting some space, she manages to throw it like a boomerang.

    Piper
    Well, that’s one way to get a restraining order.

    [Original Footage]
    Jude gets knocked right into a vending machine in the parking lot.

    Jude
    Okay, c’mon! You want a piece of me?!

    Jude uses the vending machine she was knocked into as a springboard, jumping from it towards the slayers to slash at them. She jumps in the air and does a downward slash at the Slayers. She turns, quite pleased with herself and folding her arms. A Slayer then takes a swing at her…

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Jude rolls out of the way of the Slayer but is knocked on the floor. After barely avoiding strikes and swipes, she kicks herself up and continues attacking.

    [Original Footage]

    Jude turns around to find Dualisticon in his Close Range form and slashes at Jude, the gust of wind knocking her into a nearby gate. Dualisticon tries to rush towards Jude along with the Slayers but Logan has his Inferno Buster drawn and blocks it. He kicks Dualisticon away and turns to Jude.

    Logan
    You okay?

    Jude
    Yeah, I can manage…

    Logan
    See? When there aren’t innocent civilians around, I look out for my team.

    Jude
    It’s appreciated. [Smiles under her helmet] Now go kick that freak’s ass.

    Logan runs and Jude tries to follow, but…

    [Camera turns to Jude’s POV through her visor]

    A slayer appears right in front of Jude’s face backing her into the gate again.

    Jude
    Gah!

    [Shinkenger Footage, Act One]

    Jude’s Katana gets knocked out of her hands. She ducks and kicks the Slayer in front of her and goes to retrieve her Samurai Katana, jumping and grabbing it.

    Jude
    Sorry guys! I’m off the market!

    She finds herself having to quickly deflect a sword from another Slayer and turns to look around her.

    Jude
    These things are creepy up close!

    She pushes the slayer off and spins the disk on her Katana that glows green and turns into her weapon.

    Jude
    Forest Javelin!

    She opens her belt buckle and attaches the green disk to the spear.

    Jude twirls her spear and finds herself stumbling with it. She manages to stab a Slayer with it, but she backs off, surrounded by a circle of Slayers. Eventually, she growls in frustration and spins with the spear, the Slayers promptly exploding.

    [Original Footage]

    More Slayers look around in confusion. They were fighting Ashley but now have no clue where he is. They hear a whistle and look up on the railings of the convention centre. Ashley’s waiting to pounce.

    Ashley
    Looking for me, ass-wipes?

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act One]

    Ashley jumps down and slashes at the Slayers with his katana, working his way around. He eventually stabs behind him for his Katana to cross paths with another Slayer. Upon realizing, he steps back, the Katana still lodged in the Slayer.

    Ashley
    One potato, two potato, three potato, FOUR! [Turns around and slashes the Slayer]

    [Original Footage ]

    Ashley turns out to find Dualisticon in his close range form as he slashes him. The gust knocks Ashley towards the stairs of the convention centre right into the city map. Dualisticon’s eyes glow as Logan jumps in and slashes him quickly. Ashley gets up.

    Ashley
    Thanks Logan, I really appreciate it.

    Logan
    Don’t worry about it. [He rushes after Dualisticon who flees]

    Ashley turns to face the Slayers

    Ashley
    Okay, now I mean business!

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act One]

    He spins the black disk on the hilt of the Samurai Katana as it turns into a fan.

    Ashley
    I want you to meet my little friend, the Cyclone Fan!

    He slashes at the Slayers around him. He does a full circle as the Slayers promptly explode.

    Ashley
    I’ve got a fan, I don’t need a fanBASE.

    Ashley lowers his weapon as the Jungle Fury Wolf Ranger Cosplayer runs up to him.

    Wolf Ranger Cosplayer
    Dude that was so TOTALLY AWESOME!!! You kicked so much ass!

    Ashley
    I did…?

    Wolf Ranger Cosplayer
    Good to know there’s another dude who’s not afraid to wear a strange color for a male ranger.

    Ashley
    [smirks] Thanks man, now go on, get outta here.

    Ext. Convention Centre Car Park

    Logan is dueling with Dualisticon in the parking lot in his Close Range Form. Logan can hold his own with his Inferno Buster, the pair being equally matched. Eventually however, Dualisticon manages to get a lucky hit on Logan and knocks him back. As Logan is struggling to get up, Dualisticon changes to his long range form as Logan takes a run at him. Before Logan can get a blow in, Dualisticon blows him back again with gunfire shots.

    Logan
    Damn…I need to get close

    Takumi
    [through his morpher] Logan, remember, you need to get in close and keep the pressure on him.

    The camera zooms into inside of Logan’s helmet, red mist energy surrounds his real human face as he tries his best to concentrate.

    Logan
    But I keep leaving myself open…

    Takumi
    Then find some way to get him open to attack.

    The camera changes to the point of view of Logan’s visor as Dualisticon is still in his long range form and glows orange.

    Logan
    [back to his face] I’ve got an idea…! [zooms out of his helmet]

    [Shinkenger Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Dualisticon fires at Logan with energy blasts. Logan runs towards Dualisticon and holds his Inferno Buster in front of him, blocking the shots as sparks and explosions fly all around him. Logan strikes at the side of Dualisticon, which he manages to counter. He tries an upward slice, which is blocked by Dualisticon. Logan then kicks him away, and wasting no time, slashes him while he’s off guard with the Inferno Buster, causing the monster to fly back towards a car.

    Dualisticon hurriedly gets up as Logan waits, still on guard. He breaks the window of the car and pushes it towards Logan.

    Dualisticon
    Well, find a way to block this!

    He pushes the car towards Logan, as Logan slices the car in half and it explodes upon contact with a wall.

    The MMPR Red Cosplayer looks on at the fight and takes his helmet off. He collapses on his knees at the wreckage of the car. Dualisticon changes into his Close Range Form and flees, just as Logan is about to chase him though, he gets stopped by the MMPR Red Cosplayer.

    MMPR Red Cosplayer
    Oh, NO! Why did you have to wreck my car?! I had two years left on that!

    Logan
    Sorry! It’s the difficulties of being a Power Ranger! Collateral damage!

    MMPR Red Cosplayer
    B-But!!

    Logan
    From one red ranger to another, you were better off without that car. It’s so 2009.

    MMPR Red
    Y-You called me a red ranger…

    Logan flees to chase Dualisticon. MMPR Red Cosplayer just stares blankly at the whole display.

    MMPR Red Cosplayer
    …He just destroyed my car…and just handled it in a way that was so badass it’s unreal…! Oh god the guys on Facebook are gonna be so jealous! [He runs off!]

    Ext. Rooftops
    Dualisticon leaps from rooftop to rooftop as Logan chases him. Takumi chimes in again through his morpher.

    Takumi
    Logan, he’s heading towards the demolished part of the shopping centre where you fought him last time.

    Logan
    Got it, he won’t get far.

    Dualisticon lands and he and Logan battle. They each upward slash each which is blocked. He tries to slash downwards and Dualisticon is knocked back. Logan changes his Inferno Buster back to his Samurai Katana, and starts rapid and swift slashes at Dualisticon to keep the pressure on him. It’s a long, intense fight of repeated slashes and strikes, blocks and evasion tactics.

    Logan’s stopped however by Dualisticon jumping over him and kicking him to the side. Logan gets up and tries to keep his guard.

    Dualisticon
    You’re strong… far too strong.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger, Act Two]

    Dualisticon whips his tail around to deliver a devastating gust blow strike to Logan. However, it’s stopped by Raphael, Ashley, Jude and Piper slashing Dualisticon each. They run towards Logan.

    Raphael
    Logan, you okay?

    [Original Footage]
    Dualisticon gets up and prepares to transform into his second form. But he’s straining, causing the process to be slow.

    Dualisticon
    W-Why am I struggling to transform?!

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger, Act Two]

    Logan places the Red Disk on his Samurai Katana and spins it.

    Logan
    Quickly, we should finish him while he’s transforming.

    Raphael and Piper
    Right! [They do the same with their own disks]

    Jude and Ashley
    Kickass! [They do the same with their disks]

    The rangers’ Katanas glow with their respective elements as they assume battle ready stances.

    All Five
    Samurai Katanas, Storm Rush formation!

    Dualisticon
    H-Hold on. Can’t we talk about this?

    The rangers take a run at Dualisticon as he stands up helpless, still in his Close Range form. It zooms in on him as he’s terrified, then the camera pans to behind him to view each ranger about to jump him.

    Each ranger takes a run at him and slashes him with their elements. First Logan, followed by Raphael, then Ashley, then Jude, and finally Piper. They lower their swords as Dualisticon explodes, killing him.

    Int. Dojo
    Takumi looks on a computer screen and smiles with relief at the rangers defeating Dualisticon.

    Takumi
    Well done rangers!

    A beep is heard and Takumi switches cameras back to the convention centre. Oujou and Demona are there.

    Takumi
    Rangers! Get back to the convention centre! Demona and Oujou are there!

    Ext. Demolished Part of Shopping Centre.

    The rangers rush back as several Slayers look to Dualisticon’s dead body, he’s apparently still alive.
    They rush with his body through a gap.

    [Scene 12]

    Ext. Convention Centre

    Demona and Oujou, the latter of which is now sober, are in the car park of the convention centre. The Slayers come through the gap with Dualisticon’s dead body which is close to separating back into the human and two spirits they were previously. Demona looks over him and looks to Oujou.

    Demona
    Quickly my lord! Use the Grow incantation!

    Oujou
    How did such a perfect monster fail?! It doesn’t matter…

    Logan
    Oujou! Stop immediately!

    The five rangers try to charge Oujou but he slams his sword into the ground, immediately knocking the rangers down. Oujou then uses his sword to create a gigantic Kanji symbol for “Grow”. Energy begins to flow around Dualisticon as Oujou collapses in pain, and Demona lifts him up.

    Demona
    Dualisticon, we will leave it to you! [Demona and Oujou teleport away through a crack in the pavement]

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act One]

    Dualisticon grows, now in his long range form. He goes to stomp the rangers as they roll out of the way. Raphael, Piper, Jude and Ashley are huddled up in an opening as they recover.

    Jude
    [standing up then falling down again] I guess that’s what Takumi meant by them growing tremendously in power!

    Piper
    We can just call the zords to destroy them, right?

    Raphael
    (Sarcastically) Yeahhhh…the things that are made out of legos.

    He holds his hand out as the Dragon Origami zord folds out in it.

    Raphael
    Sorry bud. But [shows it to the rangers] I’m not gonna win chicks with this thing.

    Logan
    [Looking to the four, then looking up] Really? Watch and learn.

    [Original Footage]
    Logan appears in a fire background, throwing the black origami pentagon with the red kanji symbol up in the air. He takes out his brush morpher and converts it to brush mode.

    “Lion Zord!”

    He draws the kanji for ‘Zord’ as the lion emerges from the origami and stands triumphantly.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Logan teleports into the cockpit and places the black disk onto the Samurai Katana. He places it on the podium in front of him to serve as the control.

    The other four rangers stare in wonder, especially Raphael who, if one could see his face under his helmet, looks as if he’s been owned.

    Raphael
    I stand corrected!

    The other rangers draw their Zords’ origami shells.

    [Original Footage]

    A split screen zord summoning. Each ranger is in a background surrounding their own element as they throw the shells containing their Zords up in the air and drawing the Kanji for Zord with their brush morphers.

    “Dragon Zord/Turtle Zord/Bear Zord/Monkey Zord!”

    The Zords open and strike unique poses each

    [Shinkenger Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    The Zords charge towards Dualisticon as he fires at them. The Lion Zord charges him.

    [Slowed down Shinkenger footage]

    Logan’s in his cockpit with his hands over the Samurai Katana to control his zord.

    Logan
    Piper, I’ll distract him. You sneak attack him with the monkey zord.

    [End Slowed down Shinkenger footage]

    [Shinkenger Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    The Lion circles around as Dualisticon takes pot-shots at it. It finds itself right in front of him as it’s getting slashed repeatedly.

    Piper’s in her cockpit getting ready to attack

    Piper
    Gotcha Logan!

    The monkey zord starts punching Dualisticon rapidly, then jumps up, using a walkway between two skyscrapers as a [no pun intended] monkey bar, swinging and jumping on the taller building behind the two skyscrapers.

    [Original Footage]
    Two business men in suits carrying suit cases on their way to work are about to step on the walkway when the building shakes and the walkway is crushed.

    Suit 1
    Aw, man! Now how am I going to get to the office?!

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    The monkey cries out as Piper motions forward from her cockpit.

    Piper
    Take this!

    It leaps down from the building and curls into its origami shell shape and rams itself at Dualisticon.

    [Original Footage]

    The Turtle Zord charges at Dualisticon. Ashley pushes forward from his cockpit.

    Ashley
    Alright! Time for some Turtle Turtle Power!

    The Turtle Zord tries to spin attack Dualisticon but he shoots it down. He then changes to his close range form and bats the turtle zord away up into the sky. Ashley falls onto the floor of his cockpit.

    Ashley
    Ow! Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!

    The Bear Zord leaps up in the air and catches the Turtle Zord.

    Ashley
    [in his cockpit, letting out a sigh of relief] Whew, thanks Jude.

    Jude
    Anytime Ash!

    They try to attack the monster together as he changes back into his first long range form to try and shoot them down. It’s too late however as they both ram into him, knocking him down.

    Logan nods.

    Logan
    Alright, now time to finish this! Raphael, you ready? Let’s double team this bitch!

    Raphael
    Got it Logan!

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    The dragon zord comes about as the other Zords gather around quickly. Raphael claps his hands together and points them out.

    Raphael
    Rapid Stream!

    The dragon shoots a breath of blue flame at Dualisticon who screams in pain at the flames. The lion then charges towards him.

    Logan draws his sword and spins the black disk once again as it spins and displays the rangers’ colors.

    Logan
    Stampede Blaze!

    The Lion stretches its front legs out to form wings and tucks its hind legs and head in its shell. As it catches fire, it charges towards the frightened Dualisticon.

    Logan points his sword outwards as the Lion charges into Dualisticon and it comes to a complete skid and stop. Dualisticon collapses and explodes.

    [Scene 13]

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act Two]

    Dualisticon grows once again, this time in his close range form.

    All the rangers in turn stare out of their cockpits and shake their heads.

    Logan
    What?!

    Raphael
    Huh?!

    Ashley
    No way!!

    Jude
    The hell?!

    Piper
    How could he survive that?!

    Takumi
    Rangers, Dualisticon was able to transform at will, but you only destroyed one of his forms! His close range form is his true form! The individual Zords won’t be enough, you need to form the Bushido Megazord!

    Jude
    Awesome, I can do this!

    Ashley
    [looks panicked through his suit] N-No Jude! You can’t tell them apart!

    Piper
    it’s too hard for you!

    Jude
    Ash, just this morning you came out of the closet to Takumi because you didn’t learn proper Japanese. So you can shut the fuck up about what Kanji I can and can’t do.

    Ashley
    Gah…

    Piper
    I don’t like this…

    Jude
    Here I go!

    She draws the Kanji for what she thinks is combine. But instead what she writes is magnetize.

    Jude
    Origami Zords, Combine...Wait, Logan, where are you going?

    Logan
    Getting the fuck outta here.


    Raphael
    Wait, what?!...Not again!

    The Lion Zord turns back into its shell and flies upwards. The other four Zords start to rumble as the rangers shake about in their cockpits.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act Two]

    All four origami Zords turn back into their shells and simply pile on top of each other and latch together. Jude’s zord on the bottom, Raphael’s next, then Ashley’s, then Piper’s.

    Raphael
    Bushido Megazord!

    Ashley
    ….eh, you were saying, Jude?

    Raphael
    What’s wrong?

    The camera zooms out to see the tower of Zords with the Lion zord flying past while Dualisticon looks confused.

    Logan
    You made a fucking tower. You wrote Magnetize, not combine.

    Piper’s sheepish in her cockpit.

    Piper
    W-Well it happens to everyone…

    Logan’s in his cockpit now

    Logan
    We should call that the “Bushido Megazord: Fail Formation.”

    [Original Footage]

    Jude shrugs her shoulders

    Jude
    What’s wrong with this?

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act Two]

    The rangers proceed to argue from their cockpits.

    Logan
    Well, for one thing you can’t fight in it.

    Raphael
    [while having his hands out] Haha! Way to go Jude!

    Jude
    [Taps her console, looking up] Hey, it was a mistake okay!

    [Original Footage]
    Piper, Raphael and Ashley struggle to stand in their cockpits

    Ashley
    H-Hey! Careful!

    [Original Footage]

    Logan
    Oh, screw this. I guess I’ll have to fix it.

    He draws his Brush Morpher and draws two separate kanji symbols. The first one for demagnetize so the zords can break free, and one for Combine.

    Logan
    Origami Zords, Combine!

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act Two]

    The zords combine. Lion becomes the chest and a section of it lifts up to become the face, Dragon and Bear become the feet, and Monkey and Turtle become the arms. A component of the dragon separates as they fuse together to form a samurai helmet. The megazord puts the helmet on its head as a strap generates and the sword materializes. The megazord strikes a pose against a Cliffside background with waves raging against it and the rising sun behind it.

    All Five
    Bushido Megazord!

    [Original Footage]
    The rangers look in awe at the cockpit around them.

    Jude
    This is so totally awesome.

    Raphael
    Now THIS is better!

    Suddenly, the Samurai Katanas glow and give off a very particular aura. They compel the rangers to pick them up and they do with the megazord drawing its sword in unison. Logan notices an inscription on the sword and reads it.

    Logan
    Cho Ogata Inu…

    *the auras disappear*

    Raphael
    Cho Ogata Inu…what does that mean?

    Logan
    Big Dog. It’s the sword the Megazord is equipped with.

    Ashley
    Hmm…sounds about right.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act Two]

    Dualisticon ignores his transformation and charges at them with his own. The megazord parries and the rangers slash forward, the megazord copying.

    [Original Footage]

    The megazord kicks Dualisticon backwards.

    [Sentai Footage : Shinkenger Act Two]

    The rangers lower their Samurai Katanas and aim it at Dualisticon who flinches. The rangers then hit a button on their controls.

    All Five
    Spark Storm Attack!

    Their Samurai Katanas begin spinning as the Cho Ogata Inu begins to glow with blue energy. Sparks are now all around the monster and megazord.

    Dualisticon
    W-Wait!!

    The Cho Ogata Inu circles around, as the rangers, with the Cut Kanji symbol in front of them, slash downwards for the final strike with the megazord copying. It strikes Dualisticon as he falls to the ground and explodes, the Megazord posing. It sheaths its sword and poses in the daylight once again…

    Demona is also in her human form.

    Demona
    Lord Oujou, please calm down!

    Oujou
    Calm down?! I’m nearly drained of all my energy!!

    Demona
    That’s why you need to calm down, so you don’t waste anymore energy.

    He then collapse into a heap on the ground, seemingly unconscious. She runs to his side as Octovilus, in his monster form walks over to her.

    Demona
    Oujou?!...Oujou!

    Octovillus
    That composite monster took a lot out of him. We probably should not use composite monsters until we are near full strength again.

    Demona
    Yes…I agree. [Looks back at Oujou]Sleep for now my dark emperor.

    They walk towards the end of the barge, looking out onto the red sea.

    Demona
    Octovilius…can I ask you a question..?

    Octovilus
    Of course.

    Demona
    Do you think…Oujou has changed since he adopted his human body?

    Octovilus
    He sounds the same as he usually is.

    Demona
    Hm. He seems a little…different…he never drank from the River Sanzu before.

    Octovilus
    Perhaps he simply has difficulties adjusting to his human body.

    Demona
    True…what was your human form like?

    Octovilus
    My human body was disfigured. Shame...we had similar characteristics. We were scholars hunting for power. I made a deal with a Fallen which resulted in me losing my humanity. My human host made a deal with me, and I took his life, claiming his body as my own.

    Demona
    …..

    Octovilus
    How about you? As far as I recall, your human form is merely just a shell now.

    Demona
    Yes…my body was corrupted by greed…by jealousy….Ameratsu stole the man I loved…he did not love me---

    [slight pause]

    Octovilus
    Pitiful…

    Demona
    [Angrily]I’m sure you have some regrets also…

    Octovilus
    Not that I can recall. Unless you count not gaining an alcoholic body like Oujou has.

    Octovilus and Demona walk back inside of the ship, as a distorted, quiet voice whispers to itself.

    It has begun…

    [Scene 15]

    The rangers walk back into the mansion, unmorphed and triumphant as they converse and gab about their escapades.

    Raphael
    [laughing] Seriously, Logan?! You trashed a guy’s car...and he dressed as a red ranger too?! What a loser…

    Jude
    I trashed a vending machine…

    Ashley
    Not quite as epic as you screwing up the Megazord.

    Logan
    The moral of this story: never trust Jude with the Megazord formation again. [laughs]

    Takumi stands in front of them as the Kuroko wipe towels over them.

    Takumi
    Well done rangers: that’s one battle out of possibly many that you successfully won.

    Jude
    And we’ve got a loooooooooot of questions for you buddy.

    Takumi
    And I will answer them all in time. But don’t get cocky in the meantime. You still have many challenges ahead of you.

    Ashley
    Aw c’mon!

    Takumi
    Later, it has been a long day. You must rest.

    Piper
    Not just yet. We need something to help us grow as a team, to help us grow as Rangers. (smiles, holding her hand out)

    Ashley, Raphael and Jude place their hands on top of Piper’s. They look to Logan.

    Logan
    Seriously?

    Raphael
    C’mon leader.

    Logan puts his hand on top of everyone else’s. They all leap up in the air.

    All Five
    POWER RANGERS!

    [Scene fades to black as theme music starts]

    Ashley
    That’s gotta be the dumbest thing we’ve done all day.

    [They all laugh as the credits roll.]

    So, I just figured I'd let you all in on some stuff. This episode will focus on the character, Jude, as she struggles through new feelings that hit here, as well as old feelings that surface. As these start to affect her duties as a ranger, she eventually comes to grips with who she is.

    Oh, and I'm totally biting this from The Cult of Sheldon, but I felt this episode needed some background music. So, this song will play during Scene 10. I thought it was appropriate. Well, enjoy this weeks episode of Power Rangers: Bushido Spirits.

    [Scene 1]

    Ext. Courtyard

    Jude is sitting alone in the courtyard of the Honomoto Mansion in front of an easel with sheets of paper draped over it. A bottle of ink can be seen on the ledge of the easel as the camera moves around to focus on the paper. She has a calligraphy brush in hand as she practices writing kanji from the previous episode. So far, at least twenty different variations of the kanji cover the top layer of paper as she tries to draw the combine kanji once again.

    Jude
    [Patiently]…and I draw the line this way and…

    Nothing happens signifying that she drew the kanji wrong once again.

    Jude
    Oh, what the fuck! I could have sworn I drew that right this time…

    Piper
    You drew the final line a bit too far out.

    Jude turns around as she hears the voice of Piper, the Yellow Ranger.

    [Camera moves on Piper as she moves in next to Jude]

    Piper
    You see, if you moved this line a little bit further in, you would have gotten the kanji right. Like this.

    Piper pulls out her Brush Morpher, converts it to brush mode and draws the combine kanji, the symbol momentarily glowing, cycling through the five colors as it turns back to black.

    Piper
    [Reassuringly]See? It really isn’t that hard.

    Jude
    [Annoyed]Yeah...for you.

    Piper looks concerned at Jude.

    Piper
    [Slight pause] Hey, you want to go the mall? They have some amazing sales going on right now.

    Jude
    [Sarcastically, with a valley girl accent] Yeah, like totally!

    Piper
    [Confused] What’s gotten in to you?

    Jude
    [Sarcastically] Oh, nothing…just that we have absolutely nothing in common besides us being rangers and having two X chromosomes.

    Piper
    What do you mean?

    Jude
    Let me break it down for you. When you were young, judging by your demeanor and everything, you probably played with Barbies. I bet you even had that stupid pink car they made for her. I, on the other hand, grew up with G.I. Joe and Tonka trucks. So, why don’t you run along and get overloaded on Diet Cokes and Victoria Secrets products.

    Piper looks hurt, as she quickly walks away and out of the Honomoto Mansion. Jude just sits there, trying to get back to writing her kanji, but her mind seems to wander onto something else. Suddenly, she gets a text message mentioning something about a football game. After reading it, she shoves the phone back into her pants pocket and slowly gets back to writing the kanji.

    [Camera does a close-up on the area of paper Jude is working on; she makes a brushstroke as the ink quickly fills the screen with black.]

    [Scene 2]

    Ext. Hellish Landscape

    Demona and Oujou are walking along the coastline of the Sanzu River in their human forms. They look for any signs of spiritual activity to collect for a new monster.

    Oujou
    Keep looking my love. We need a new, more powerful monster to combat those rangers. Now that there are five, we will have to fight even harder to defeat them.

    Demona
    Yes my lord. But what type of monster spirit are you loo---

    Suddenly, a loud boom can be heard from behind them as flashes of lightning burst from behind. The two turn around and see thousands of energy surges emanating from the hull of the Forsaken Angel.

    Demona
    What the hell is going on?

    Oujou
    [Angrily] Someone is deceiving me, that’s what!

    Int. Ship

    Octovilius is standing in front of the form of a kneeling figure, with energy emanating off the figure’s body. A look of satisfaction fills his face, as he moves closer to the figure. He puts his hand on the creature’s shoulder, which causes the excess energy to move up the creature’s body into Octovilius’ hand. The creature is a heavily muscled, green monster with large, red fists.

    Octovilius
    Rise Gollusaur! You will now serve your new master!

    Oujou
    Yes, he will!

    Octovilius turns to face Demona and Oujou who have quietly teleported onto the Forsaken Angel behind the squid-like creature.

    Octovilius
    [Surprised, scared] My Lord! You’ve returned.

    Oujou
    Yes, and obviously, you’ve been busy while we were away.

    Octovilius
    Ye..yes m..my lord.

    Oujou
    Why are you stuttering? You seem [slight pause, cocks head to the side] frightened.

    Octovilius
    No…no my lord. I have simply made this new monster to better serve you.

    Oujou
    So, why did you wait until we were gone to look for a new spirit for a monster to make this one when you knew we were going to look for one?

    Octovilius
    I…I...I just…

    Oujou
    [Angrily, loudly] Silence! [Turning to Gollusaur] Go to the human world, bring me more humans, and defeat the Power Rangers at all costs. I don’t care how you do it.

    Gollusaur
    [With a ragged tone of voice] Yes my lord!

    Gollusaur’s body glows red and moves through a crack in the hull, as Oujou turns to face a cowering Octovilius.

    Oujou
    So, what shall I do with you? [As Oujou says this, his form begins to glow red as a his shadow grows larger to cover Octovilius’ body]

    [Scene 3]

    Ext. Park

    The camera pans around as it looks at the tranquility of the park; lush, green grass all around as people enjoy the warm weather. We focus on a couple with their baby sitting on a red and white checkered blanket. They laugh as the child shakily walks from mother to father.

    Voice
    Look out!

    Suddenly, a brownish red football lands in the middle of the blanket, scaring half the living shit out of the couple. Jude then runs up to the couple, her clothes covered in grass stains and sweat covering her face.

    Jude
    Sorry about that.

    Woman
    You should be more careful! You almost hit our daughter with your ball.

    Jude
    [Slowly, sarcastically] But we didn’t.

    The man throws her the ball as he looks reassuringly at her.

    Man
    Just try to be a little more careful please?

    Jude
    [Jokingly] We’ll try.

    Jude runs back to the game further down as she throws the ball at one of the guys.

    Jude
    Good going, you almost plastered that kid.

    Guy
    How was I supposed to know you’d tackle me and throw off my aim?

    Jude
    Excuses, excuses.

    The scene shoots to a bunch of players running after Jude, who is carrying the ball and running toward the end zone. As she shoots past the other players trying to tackle her, she races toward the goal, throwing the ball to the ground as she crosses their makeshift goal line.

    Jude
    [Triumphantly] What now bitches!

    Ext. City

    The scene changes again to her walking down the street. She walks in a Target store to try and find a new shirt to replace the one she ruined, but she sees a teddy bear on one of the shelves.

    Jude
    Ah, this is really cute.

    As she walks toward the register with her new shirt, the teddy bear, and her disheveled appearance, she checks out. The checker just looks at her, his confused face becoming obvious to her.

    Jude
    What?

    Checker
    That’ll be thirty four, fifty seven.

    Jude hands the guy two crumpled twenties, and she shoves the change back into her pocket once she gets it back. Once she walks out the door, she shoves the bear underneath her shirt in hopes no one would see it when she got back to the mansion.

    Int. Mansion

    Once she makes it into the mansion, she immediately heads toward her room. She walks toward the bathroom and turns on the shower right after she throws her bag onto the floor next to her bead. Once the water is warm enough, she kicks off her shoes, throwing them into a corner of her room. She pulls off her socks, and throws them on top of her shoes. After pulling off her ragged shirt, she then unbuttons her jeans, pulling down the zipper. As she slips them off, she reveals a pair of green panties and a white bra. She then unhooks the back of her bra, pulling that off, then pulling off her panties; immediately stepping into the warm streaming water.

    Ext. Courtyard - Sunset

    Finally cleaned up, she walks out to the courtyard with a clean set of clothes on, hoping to finish her calligraphy for the day. However, she stops in her tracks as she finds Raphael practicing his sword training, shirtless as the setting sun gleans off of his body. She just stands there, watching his sword moves as if they were a dance, admiring the chiseled form of his chest.

    Raphael
    Can I help you?

    Jude snaps out of her daze, as she tries to play it off.

    Jude
    Oh, no, I’m just checking out the sunset. I was gonna practice some calligraphy, but it looks like it’s getting too late.

    Raphael
    Whatever works for you.

    He smiles at her, getting back to his sword practice. She stands there another moment, admiring his moves, but finally heads back inside.

    [Scene 4]

    Ext. Courtyard – Morning

    The rangers are practicing their training in the courtyard once again. Each one is practicing with their swords, while Jude is trying to stay focused, but can’t for some reason. As they pair off to practice their training against each other, Jude ends up practicing with Ashley. As their swords clash, Jude only seems partially into it, her mind still off somewhere.

    Ashley
    Come on! I know you can fight better than this.

    Jude
    Just shut up and fight!

    Jude lunges at him with her wooden practice sword, but Ashley blocks it and jabs her in the side. Jude falls to the ground, grabbing at her side.

    Ashley
    Jude, you alright?

    Jude
    [Annoyed]I’m fine.

    Ashley
    Whatever. It’s just you don’t seem like yourself today.

    Jude
    Oh yeah! What am I supposed to be like!

    Logan
    [Walking over]Whoa Jude, chill. He’s just being concerned. We all are.

    Jude
    Let’s just get back to work, okay.

    Raphael
    Hmm, a little grumpy are we? I bet you all ten bucks it’s because of a guy.

    Piper
    Nah, I don’t think so. The only guy she’s into is G.I. Joe.

    Jude
    Shut up Piper!

    The other rangers laugh at Piper’s joke as Jude stands there looking embarrassed. Suddenly, the door leading to the inside opens as Takumi walks out with a wooden box in hand.

    Takumi
    Everyone, gather around if you don’t mind.

    As Takumi sits on the porch, he lays the box in front of him as the rangers gather around him.

    Raphael
    What’s that Takumi?

    Takumi opens the wooden box, revealing a plush interior surrounding a silver disk.

    Takumi
    This is the Lightning Disk. It has been with the Honomoto family for years, but it has never been needed before. This disc will serve as an excellent addition to our arsenal against the Fallen.

    Logan
    Cool beans. So, when do we get to use it?

    Takumi
    I still need to test it to make sure it is working properly. But soon, we will be able to harness its mighty power. Now, please get back to your training if you don’t mind.

    As the rangers break off to continue their training, Jude eagerly walks up next to Raphael.

    Jude
    So, about that lightning disk?

    Raphael
    Yeah, it seems pretty cool. I can’t wait to see it in action.

    Jude
    Really? Me too. How’s your little dragon doing? I hope I didn’t mess it up when I screwed up the megazord combination last time.

    Raphael
    [Confused]Yeah…it’s good. You should do fine with the megazord combo next time.

    Jude
    I’m glad you think so.

    Raphael
    Yeah…

    Takumi runs back out of the house, peering out the door at the rangers.

    Takumi
    It appears I spoke too soon. A group of Slayers are attacking downtown.

    Logan
    Alright guys, time to get out of here.

    [Scene 5]

    Ext. Plaza

    A hoard of Slayers are attacking people in a busy plaza in front of some office buildings, dragging some around into bundles for them to take back to the Sanzu River. As they attack the citizens, the rangers show up.

    Logan
    [To Slayers]Back off freaks.

    Everyone runs over, trying to pull the Slayers off of the victims, but the Slayers just attack them instead and get back to their duties.

    Piper
    Can we break out the spandex now?

    Ashley
    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    Logan
    Yeah…we probably should have morphed before we got here. [Looks at the others]Ready?[pulls out his morpher]

    Raphael, Jude, Ashley, Piper
    Ready![pull out their morphers]

    Rangers
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    Each ranger then begins drawing the kanji for their element: Fire, Earth, Water, Air, and Wood. The element each ranger has drawn immediately shoots back at them. A flame shoots fire at Logan, the water drop shoots a flurry of water at Raphael, the tree shoots a whirlwind of leaves at Jude, the wind gust burst a blast of air at Ashley, and the rock fires a dust-devil at Piper. The elements surround them to form the ranger suit, Samurai Katana, and helmet.

    Each ranger takes on a group of Slayers, each pulling out their katana.

    Piper swipes at a couple of slayers attacking an innocent woman, pulling them off of her as she kneels down.

    Piper
    Hurry, get out of here.

    Logan ignites his katana and wipes out seven slayers heading right toward him, untying a group of people, prompting them to leave.

    Ashley spins the disk on his katana as a pink gust of wind surrounds his blade. He swings, which blows two slayers off of a little kid. The kid comes over and hugs his leg in appreciation.

    Kid
    Thanks lady.

    Ashley
    Thank---[annoyed]just get lost.

    Jude fights a slayer, her sword clashing against the slayer’s. The creature makes a swipe at her chest, knocking Jude to the ground.

    Jude
    [Getting up off the ground]I could use some help over here!

    Raphael runs over while spinning the disc of his blade. As he gets closer, he slides down on one leg, swinging his sword right as he passes the slayer, causing it to explode.

    Once all the Slayers are taken care of, Raphael comes over and helps her up. Jude demorphs once she is back on her feet.

    Jude
    Thanks Raph. I couldn’t have---

    Raphael
    What’s up with you?

    Raphael demorphs right as he says that, with an angry and concerned look on his face.

    Raphael
    You never get your ass kicked like that. You’re the one always showing us how to do this sort of stuff.

    The others quickly start moving in when they see what’s going on, each one demorphing in a flash of light.

    Ashley
    Seriously Jude, Raph’s right. You’re turning into a total wussbag.

    Logan
    I’m sorry Jude, but Raphael and Ashley are right. If you can’t hold your own against a simple enemy like a slayer, then we can’t have you fight with us.

    Piper
    [Concerned, surprised]Logan, are you sure that’s a good idea?

    Jude
    Stay out of this Barbie!

    Logan
    You need to calm down Jude.

    Jude
    [Voice raising]What? You think just because I've got boobs I can't kick your ass? Fascist pig.

    Logan
    [Angrily]That’s not what I’m saying at all! You need to—

    Jude
    [Yelling]I don’t need to do anything you say! All of you are just assholes. I’m out.

    Raphael
    Jude, wait!

    As Jude runs off on her own, the others just stay behind, looking confused at what just happened.

    Ashley
    [Short pause]Good going Raph.

    Raphael
    What are you talking about? You called her a wussbag.

    [Scene 6]

    Ext. Park

    Jude walks through an outdoor eating area, with benches scattered around on top of the concrete ground. As she walks around, her thoughts wonder further and further away from the fight.

    Jude
    [To self]What’s going on with me? I can’t remember feeling like this before…

    The camera focuses away from her onto a crack in the concrete. A bright red light appears…

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act. 3]

    The light starts moving along the grid of gaps between the concrete blocks. It moves rapidly, and then stops underneath a bench. Suddenly, a giant, red fist leeches out from the ground and grabs at the throat of the man sitting on the bench. As Gollusaur leeches out of the crack, he lifts the man high into the air, throwing him far across the land.

    Gollusaur
    [Laughing]I hope you enjoy my friends, Kuchiku-kan and Bob!

    Suddenly, the creature’s fist launch into the crowd of people. His left fist punches a man in the face and his right grabs onto a helpless woman, dragging her closer to his body as his tentacle-fists retract.

    [Original Footage]

    Jude notices the new monster making work of the helpless people.

    Jude
    Here’s my chance.

    Jude runs through the crowd, going against the flow of the fleeing people as she moves closer.

    Jude
    I know I can beat this guy. I’ll show them that I’m still the multi-hit wonder that I am.

    She draws her morpher out, drawing her kanji symbol as she runs.

    Jude
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    When she spins the kanji, she presses a button on her morpher. The kanji turns into the shape of a tree, shooting a flurry of leaves at her that form her suit.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act. 3]

    Jude runs toward Gollusaur with her katana drawn in a ready position. As she moves closer, she swipes her katana at the creature, but he rolls out of the way.

    [Aereal View]

    Jude
    Just give up you freak of nature. I’ll make this as quick and painless as possible.

    Jude makes multiple strikes against Gollusaur, but he just blocks the swipes with his humongous fists. He then grabs Jude, pulling her toward his body.

    [Focus on front of Gollusaur and Jude]

    Gollusaur
    That’s the problem with you humans. You never enjoy the little things.

    Jude
    [Squirming]I’m just trying to do you a favor. But if you want to draw this out…

    Jude wiggles out of Gollusaur’s grasp, knocking him in his face and kicking him back.

    Jude
    …then be my guest.

    Jude strikes at Gollusaur again, but Gollusaur just blocks it, followed by a nice blow to Jude’s head which sends her flying into the air and back to the ground.

    Jude
    [Grabbing at her head]Oww! That hurt you douche bag!

    [Focus on Gollusaur]

    Gollusaur
    You haven’t felt pain until you’ve felt this!

    Gollusaur stretches his fists down, then launches them deep into the Earth.

    Jude
    What the---

    Jude looks around, trying to anticipate what’s going to happen, but she is blindsided as his fist shoots up from the Earth, knocking her into the air and into a tree trunk.

    As Jude pushes herself back up, Gollusaur just laughs at his own badassery.

    Jude
    What the hell was that?

    Gollusaur
    That was MY fist, hitting YOUR face! I hope you like it…

    Jude
    Not really…

    Gollusaur
    Hmm, how rude. Well, you won’t be able to escape this either.

    Gollusaur pushes his hands into the ground again. This time, Jude fairs a little better at anticipating where his fists will fly up, but with every dodge she tries, the fists just fly back up from the Earth, one finally making contact with her body again. She flies high into the hair, landing on the concrete, her body engulfed in pain.

    Jude
    [To Self]Why didn’t I call for backup?

    [Scene 7]

    Int. Mansion

    Once the rangers get back to the mansion a little later, Raphael climbs the stairs up to Jude's room, hoping to find her there and apologize. As he approaches her bedroom door, he opens it, sticking his head inside.

    Raphael
    Jude, you here?

    The only sound that comes from her room is the sound of a ceiling fan circulating the air. Looking around, he sees a piece of paper on her desk. He notices the paper has his name on it, written in her handwriting.

    Raphael
    [Stepping inside]What's this?

    Picking up the paper, he starts reading the note, a confused look creeping over his face.

    [Jude VoiceOver]
    My dear, sweet Raphael,

    Your smile is like the rays of the sun, warming up my life with your radiance.

    Your heart is as pure as gold, an anchor for me to latch onto.

    Your body...well, it's pretty hot.

    And your love is one in a million: only one like it in this world.

    Love,
    Jude

    [end VoiceOver]

    Suddenly, a light bulb goes off for Raphael.

    Raphael
    So that explains it...

    Just then, he hears the sound of footsteps below as Takumi calls everyone down. Once he reaches the main floor, he gathers with the others around Takumi.

    Takumi
    There's been another monster attack. This one's down by the boardwalk.

    Piper
    Wait, has anyone seen Jude since her little tiff?

    They all looks concerned, Raphael speaking up.

    Raphael
    She wasn’t in her bedroom. I don’t know where else she could be.

    Logan
    We can't wait for her. Let's just take care of this monster. We'll worry about her later.

    [Close-up on Raphael]

    Raphael's face starts to get a worried look to it.

    [Scene 8]

    [Original footage]

    Gollusaur is kicking Jude's ass, throwing her left and right. Eventually, she's able to dodge another one of his punches, and makes a nice strike at him.

    Gollusaur
    You can't run forever. Eventually, I will crush you.

    Jude
    Haven't you crushed me enough already?

    Gollusaur
    If your brains aren't splattered across the pavement, then the answer is no.

    Jude
    Oh...how touching.

    Gollusaur
    I know, right?

    Gollusaur extends his fists out, with Jude trying to outrun them in an S type formation. However, his fists just follow her, slowly catching up until they eventually catch up to her and grab her by the midsection. He then lifts her up high into the air, holding tight as she tries to squirm free.

    Jude
    Hey, I don't go for this kind of stuff this early in our relationship. At least try to get to know me first.

    Gollusaur
    Oh, believe me: you wouldn't even make it to the first date with me!

    Jude
    Okay...kinda creepy.

    Gollusaur let's one of his hands go, ready to punch the living shit out of her. Out of nowhere, a blue stream of water shoots out and hits Gollusaur's wrist, causing him to let go of Jude. The Blue Bushido Ranger runs over and helps Jude up, supporting her with his shoulder as he aims his sword at the creature.

    Raphael
    Didn't your mother ever teach you how to treat a lady?

    Gollusaur
    I'm a demon, whataya expect?

    Raphael
    Angel was a vampire, and he knew how to treat the ladies...

    Gollusaur just looks at him confused, scratching his head trying to think about what Raphael just said. Finally, he stops and shoots his fists at Raphael and Jude.

    Gollusaur
    Oh, shut up!

    Raphael
    Jude, watch out!

    Raphael pushes Jude out of the way, and he starts to dive when Gollusaur's fists make contact with his torso. As he screams in pain, Raphael shoots up and hits the side of a building, crashing through and landing onto a car on the other side.

    Jude
    Raph!

    She runs over to him, trying to help him up, but he can't move his body. Out of nowhere, the other three rangers show up. As Piper and Ashley take on Gollusaur, Logan runs over and checks on Jude and Raphael.

    Logan
    Jude, where've you been?

    Jude
    Long story. We need to get Raphael out of here.

    Logan
    Some kuroko are on their way. Go with Raph back to the mansion. We'll take care of the monster.

    Jude
    For sure.

    As Logan runs off, four kuroko run up, two carrying a stretcher. The other two help pick up Raphael, moving him gently onto the stretcher.

    Jude
    Alright, let's get him out of here.

    The kuroko nod in agreement as the two carrying Raphael start running off, the other two running after as Jude brings up the rear.

    [Scene 9]

    Int. Room

    Raphael is lying quietly in his room in the Honomoto mansion, bandages covering parts of his body. He finally awakens to the sound of yelling coming from down the hall: most likely the voices of Takumi and Jude as far as he can tell. The voice of Jude gradually gets louder and clearer as footsteps move closer to the door.

    Jude
    ...and I am not irresponsible. I'm a BAMF you old bone bag.

    The door to Raphael's room opens, light pouring in as Jude steps inside.

    Jude
    How're you doing Raph?

    Raphael starts pushing himself up, but he winces in pain and lays back down.

    Raphael
    Well, I've been better. How about you? You sounded pretty shook up out there.

    Jude
    Oh, me? Never better! I personally enjoy getting tossed around by monsters.

    Raphael
    Yeah, I bet...

    The two both laugh awkwardly, after which a wired silence fills the room.

    Raphael
    Look Jude, I saw the letter.

    Jude
    [Nervous, tries to play it off]
    Oh, uh...what letter? I don't know about any letter.

    Raphael
    That love letter you wrote about me. I found it laying on your desk.

    Jude
    Oh, that was just a grocery list...

    Raphael just looks at her, giving her a look that just says "come on Jude."

    Jude
    Alright, it was a---wait, what were you doing in my room.

    Raphael
    I came up to apologize about chewing you out earlier. I looked in to see if you were there, and I saw my name on the letter.

    Jude
    Ah. Well, this is embarrassing. I really need to start using the drawers.

    Raphael
    Is that why you've been so distracted lately? What you wrote in that letter?

    Jude
    Could be...[embarrassed]

    [Slight pause]

    Raphael
    Look Jude, you’re a great person and all....

    Jude
    Here it comes.

    Raphael
    …but, we barely know each other. The only thing I know for sure about you is that you're good at using sarcasm.

    Jude
    I...I guess I just don’t how to handle this kind of stuff.

    Raphael
    Maybe...but just because I don't like you that way now doesn't count out me liking you like that down the line.

    Jude looks up; an embarrassed smile creeping over her face as Raphael reassuringly puts his hand on Jude’s shoulder.

    Ext. Plaza

    Sparks fly off of Ashley's suit as Gollusaur's fist makes contact with his chest. He flies to the ground, Logan checking on him as Piper runs at Gollusaur with her katana drawn.

    Logan
    You alright Ash?

    Ashley
    Don't worry about me, I'm fine. Let's just kick this guy’s ass.

    Piper swings her sword at Gollusaur's legs, but he jumps up and out of the way, using his fists to propel himself up.

    Gollusaur
    Really, is that the best you've got?

    Logan
    We've got more.

    Logan's sword, now lit up like a flame thrower, makes contact with Gollusaur mid air, but it doesn't seem to affect him.

    Gollusaur grabs Logan's sword, tossing him to the ground by the blade. Once Logan crashes down, Gollusaur lands right on top of Logan and bounces off him like a trampoline. Logan groans in pain as the monster bounces off of him.

    Gollusaur
    Seriously, can you at least try harder? I'm starting to get bored.

    About 50 yards away, Demona can be seen in her monster form, looking at the fight with her arms crossed as a look of glee fills her face. She then turns to leave, glowing red and teleporting through a crack.

    [Scene 10]

    Int. Mansion

    Jude and Raphael are back downstairs, Raphael sitting in a chair as Jude leans against a wall.

    Raphael
    So, why didn't just tell me instead of acting all weird? I thought you were a "no fear" kind of person.

    Jude
    Usually I am, but I'm not used to being girly.

    Raphael
    Whatcha mean?

    Jude pauses to think about what she would say next...

    Jude
    My dad was an officer in the Marines. So, we moved around a lot when I was younger. I lived most of my life on military bases, and I never got a chance to hang out with girls my own age. [Slight pause] That, and my dad really wanted a son. So, I played sports when I was younger, a lot of tough ones. And he was really stern, so whenever I got hurt, my dad would just tell me to suck it up keep going. I guess that's why I act tough all the time. So, I don't really know how to deal with me liking girly things.

    [Short break as the words sink in.]

    Raphael
    Jude, you don't always have to play tough. I think it's cool that you like guy stuff, but it's important that you let yourself like the girly stuff you like. Just because your dad made you one way doesn't mean you have to stick to that mold. Let yourself out, embrace who you really are, and don't let your dad dictate your life.

    Jude
    [Smiling]Thanks Raphael, I really appreciate that.

    Jude and Raphael share a moment, each looking into the others eyes. Their bodies begin to gravitate toward each other, when Takumi comes running in.

    Takumi
    I have something to show you two.

    Raphael and Jude try to play things off as Takumi comes walking over with a little electronic device in hand [In reality an iPod Touch]. Once he gets over to them, he shows them the screen with Raphael and Jude looking at it.

    Takumi
    The others aren't doing so well with the monster. You two need to head out, they need your help.

    [The screen shows the rangers getting thrashed by Gollusaur]

    Takumi then pulls the silver disc from his pocket, handing it to Jude.

    Takumi
    I want you to use the disk. Try to lure the monster into a trap, then use disc disk in place of your black disc to destroy him.

    Jude looks up in shock that he would trust Jude with it.

    Jude
    Are you sure?

    Takumi
    Because of the beating the others have taken, you might be the only one with the strength to use it. [Facing Raphael] When you get out there, I want you to back up the others. Don’t over-exert yourself.

    Raphael
    No problem.

    Jude and Raphael get up, pulling out their morphers and converting them to brush mode.

    Jude
    You ready?

    Raphael
    [Jokingly]No...

    Jude
    Alrighty then.

    Both
    Bushido Might, Spirits Ignite!

    [Cue theme music]

    [Leaves race across the screen]

    Jude sits calmly in a forest as the bear zord stomps towards her. She looks up to find one of the Kuroko cutting a tree down, said tree falling towards her which turns into a Green Honomoto family crest flag. Jude then stands up as the flag wraps around her to form the Green Ranger suit, and the pole turns into a Samurai Katana which attaches to her belt.

    The bear zord then stomps towards her, knocking over several trees as the helmet pops out of the back of the zord. Jude jumps between several trees as they collapse to catch her helmet as it latches onto her head. She lands on the pile of logs as the Green Ranger strikes a pose.

    [Water falls down the screen]

    Raphael finds himself on a small island with water above him acting as the sky and water below him. Suddenly, the dragon origami zord surfaces from the upper level as Raphael jumps on it. The dragon submerges into the lower ocean as it seems like a blue colored Honomoto family crest flag is waiting for him. It wraps around him to form the Blue Ranger outfit, the pole attaching to his belt and turning into his Samurai Katana.

    The dragon re-emerges and releases the blue ranger helmet from a compartment on its back, Raphael drops from the dragon as the helmet clamps around his head and he lands back on the island, the Blue Ranger striking a pose.

    [End theme music]

    [Scene 11]

    Ext. Plaza

    Ashley, Piper and Logan are pinned against the wall of a building by Gollusaur’s arm, their bodies squirming to get free as Gollusaur presses his wrist-tentacle things harder against the wall.

    Gollusaur
    You might as well stop squirming; you won’t get free.

    Logan
    Grmff..

    Gollusaur
    You humans are even weaker than I thought! You can’t even speak…

    Logan
    Hrmf…

    Gollusaur
    [Mockingly]What was that?

    Logan
    Grff…[through gritted teeth]Look behind you…

    Right as Gollusaur turns his head, a blue energy arrow and a green energy slash hit his head, throwing him to the ground as his arms go limp, releasing the Red, Pink, and Yellow rangers. A white and black flag with the Honomoto symbol can be seen as Jude and Raphael stand in front of it.

    [Close up on Jude, a green-illuminated Honomoto banner behind her.]

    Jude
    We’re back you retarded piece of shit!

    Jude spins her Forest Javelin around, eventually resting it on her shoulder.

    [Close up on the side of Jude’s helmet]

    [Close up on Raphael, a blue-illuminated Honomoto banner behind him.]

    Raphael
    And we’ll send you back to the slime pit you came from!

    Raphael spins his Tidal Bow around, spinning it into the air a catching it, finally resting the tip on the ground and leaning on the bow like a cane.

    [Close up on the side of Raphael’s helmet]

    Jude
    We are the BAMFs of the Earth. We are the---

    Raphael and Jude lift their weapons into the air, Jude slashing the air with her javelin and Raphael resting his bow on his shoulder.

    Both
    ---Power Rangers---

    Jude
    [Looks up as the camera does a close up on her] Bushido---

    Both
    [As the camera shows both of them striking a pose] ---Spirits!

    [Camera changes to focus on the other three as Raphael and Jude run over to check on them.

    Jude
    Sorry we took so long. We had a little family bonding to take care of.

    Ashley
    As long as you’re back to your old self again, I’m fine with it.

    Logan
    How about you Raph? You alright to give a beating?

    Raphael
    As ready as I’ll ever be.

    Piper
    I’m glad everyone’s working well again.

    Jude
    Alright, can it. I got a plan. I’ll lure him away from this area; Logan, meet me at the end of the parking building in about four minutes

    Logan
    Got it.

    The other four break off as Jude runs toward Gollusaur.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act 3]

    Jude
    Come on monkey-brain!

    With her weapon back in katana form, Jude swings at Gollusaur, but he just blocks the attack. Gollusaur keeps knocking at her as Jude tries to block it, but he’s too fast, and simply knocks her upward, Jude landing on her stomach. She quickly get’s back up into a crouching position, goading Gollusaur to hit her again.

    Jude
    Come on freak. You afraid to hit a girl?

    Gollusaur
    Not in the least. But if you want to see my mad skills again, that doesn’t bother me.

    Gollusaur lifts his hands into the air, throwing them deep into the ground below. Just as they’re about to reach Jude, she starts into a sprint, Gollusaur simply pushing his fists in pursuit.

    Jude
    You gotta be faster than that numb-nuts!

    Gollusaur
    Is that all you can think of: running? Wow, and they’re entrusting the fate of the world to these morons.

    Jude keeps running as Gollusaurs fists keeping jumping out of the ground right near her.

    Jude
    [To self]Holy shit! Good plan Jude.

    A car horn goes off as Jude runs in front of a station wagon, but Jude jumps out of the way as Gollusaurs fists collide with the front of the car. She keeps running, leading his fists through a walkway bordered by pillars. She comes to the edge of a building and jumps off, his fists following her down. Jude leads him into a parking garage, weaving in and out between the support pillars as Gollusaurs fists fly around them.

    Jude
    Come on douche monkey. You haven’t caught me yet.

    Jude runs out of the parking garage on the other side of Gollusaur, stopping to get his attention.

    Jude
    Hey, over here!

    Gollusaur
    [Turns around to face Jude]Okay, this is getting old. Time to finish it.

    Gollusaur’s fist flies out of the ground, heading toward Jude, but Logan jumps in the way and blocks the attack with his sword, holding his fist back. Just then, his other fist flies out, shooting at Jude, but she runs toward Gollusaur, jumping over his body as his fist collides with him.

    Jude
    You fucktard. Good going dude.

    [Closeup on Gollusaur]

    Gollusaur tries pulling his fists back, back they get stuck in the ground as the camera pans to shot of a huge knot around one of the support pillars.

    Gollusaur
    No! My arms are tied up.

    Jude
    And that’s because you’re an idiot!

    Jude pulls out the bear disc from the compartment on her belt, attaching it to the hilt of her katana.
    [A green background]Spinning the disc, her katana’s blade becomes surrounded by a green energy resembling leaves. Crouching into a preparatory position, she slides at him, striking him as she slides past. In an explosion, the creature falls down.

    [Original Footage]

    Gollusaur starts to get up again, his form still weakened, but still able to fight.

    Gollusaur
    [Breathing heavily]You’ll pay for that.

    Jude
    Than come and get me.

    Jude starts running again, but this time Gollusaur chases after her, simply launching his fists through the air at her.

    Gollusaur
    [Yelling]Get back here!

    Jude jumps into a shallow pool in the middle of the plaza. As Gollusaur jumps in after her, he launches his fists through the water.

    Jude
    This is it!

    She opens the compartment on her belt, pulling out a silver disk, attaching it to her hilt. Once she spins it, her sword becomes surrounded by lightning.

    Jude
    I hope you like your thighs extra crispy!

    [Dark reddish background]Once the energy has built up, she swings her sword in the direction of Gollusaur, lightning shooting straight at him. She immediately jumps out of the pool before the energy hits the creature. Landing in a kneeling pose, Gollusaur gets electrocuted behind her, the pool making the current stronger. Gollusaur finally falls over as another explosion rocks the plaza.

    Jude
    And that’s how you make fried monster!

    [Scene 12]

    Int. Ship

    [Focus on Demona]

    Demona can be seen in her human form, strumming on a strange looking shamisen as the eerie music fills the hull of the ship in complementary fashion to the screams coming from the back room. The music suddenly stops as Oujou pops out of the room in his monster form, a metal poker in hand, the tip still red hot from being heated.

    Oujou
    It appears Octovilius’ monster has failed. Time to just make it grow and hope it destroys at least some parts of the city.

    Demona
    Let me use my energy to cause the transformation.

    Oujou
    No, I will do it.

    Oujou uses the poker to draw an unknown kanji, the crimson energy appearing like it is burning. The kanji pulsates as Oujou finishes the seal, the pulses seemingly crossing the dimensional barrier between the Sanzu River and the human world.

    [Scene 13]

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act 3]

    The rangers gather around Jude to try and congratulate her.

    Piper
    Awesome plan Jude! That was amazing!

    Raphael
    Don’t congratulate her; it was my plan. [He walks across the screen with his arms folded]

    Jude
    Shut up Raph! [She hits him with the blunt of her katana.

    Raphael
    [Turns toward Jude]It was a joke.

    [Ashley blocks Raphael]

    Ashley
    Relax Raph. You can hit her later.

    Logan walks over to face them.

    Logan
    Ashley’s right; Oujou’ll probably make it grow any second.

    [View from below]

    Fire erupts as Gollusaur’s body grows larger.

    [Focus on Jude as she stretches]

    Jude
    Alright guys, let’s do this.

    [Original Footage]

    Logan appears in a fire background, throwing the black origami pentagon with the red kanji symbol up in the air. He takes out his brush morpher and converts it to brush mode.

    “Lion Zord!”

    He draws the kanji for ‘Zord’ as the lion emerges from the origami and stands triumphantly.

    [Sentai Footage: Shinkenger Act One]

    Logan teleports into the cockpit and places the black disk onto the Samurai Katana. He places it on the podium in front of him to serve as the control.

    [Original Footage]

    A split screen zord summoning. Each ranger is in a background surrounding their own element as they throw the shells containing their Zords up in the air and drawing the Kanji for Zord with their brush morphers.

    “Dragon Zord/Turtle Zord/Bear Zord/Monkey Zord!”

    The Zords open and strike unique poses each.

    Logan
    Alright guys, let’s make this short and sweet. I’m gonna make the megazord.

    He draws his Brush Morpher and draws the kanji symbol for Combine.

    All Five
    Origami Zords, Combine!

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act Two]

    The zords combine. Lion becomes the chest and a section of it lifts up to become the face, Dragon and Bear become the feet, and Monkey and Turtle become the arms. A component of the dragon separates as they fuse together to form a samurai helmet. The megazord puts the helmet on its head as a strap generates and the sword materializes. The megazord strikes a pose against a Cliffside background with waves raging against it and the rising sun behind it.

    All
    Bushido Megazord!

    [Shinkenger Footage: Act Three]

    Gollusaur brings his arms closer to his chest as he bends down, suddenly launching a brown projectile [puke?] at the Megazord, but the rangers block it with the shield. The Megazord marches forward as explosions go off behind it. Gollusaur brings his fists into his form again, followed by him shoving his fists down and into the Earth below.

    Gollusaur
    Try blocking my attack now!

    The megazord then puts the shield back on its back, grabbing the sword with both hands and stopping in a ready position.

    Int. Cockpit

    Jude
    What are we doing? Shouldn’t we run or something?

    Logan
    No. All we need to do is dodge the attack and strike.

    Jude
    [Sarcastically]Are you serious? That’s your epic plan!

    Logan
    It’ll work.

    Jude
    But---

    Logan
    [Louder, sterner]It will work!

    Logan lowers his head as an overlay of Logan’s face appears on the helmet, his eyes closing as he concentrates. With his hand outstretched over the controls, he stands still as the camera pans, showing the others trying to concentrate. Moments pass as they wait for the time to strike.

    Logan
    Now!

    The scene fades out to the megazord, Gollusaurs fists flying up out of the ground as the Megazord swings its sword.

    Gollusaur
    Gah!

    Gollusaur gets back up in pain, his arms missing from his body.

    Logan
    Time to finish this.

    They all pull their katanas from the controls, lowering them and aiming them at Gollusaur who moans in fear and pain. The rangers then hit a button on their controls.

    All Five
    Spark Storm Attack!

    Their Samurai Katanas begin spinning as the Cho Ogata Inu begins to glow with blue energy. Sparks are now all around the monster and megazord.

    Gollusaur
    Can’t we talk about this?

    The Cho Ogata Inu circles around, as the rangers, with the Cut Kanji symbol in front of them, slash downwards for the final strike with the megazord copying. It strikes Gollusaur as he falls to the ground and explodes. The megazord sheaths its sword and poses in the daylight once again…

    [Scene 14]

    Int. Ship

    Demona continues playing her shamisen, a melancholy tune filling the ship again as screams persist from the back room. Finally, out of curiosity, she puts down her instrument, walking back to the room where Oujou came from earlier. Slowly opening the door just enough to look in, she peeks through.

    [Demona’s perspective]

    Octovilius is slumped over on a wall; his wrists, legs and neck shackled in chains. His face is covered in blackish ooze coming from cuts and gashes, his body covered in bruises and scorch marks.

    Demona
    [Quietly]What is he doing?

    Suddenly, Oujou walks into view, a red hot poker in hand.

    Oujou
    Do you really think you can deceive me Octovilius?

    Octovilius
    I told you my Lord; I was only creating a monster for your use.

    Oujou strikes the frail creature with the poker, his screams filling up the tiny room. Demona looks away in horror at the site of Octovilius being tortured.

    Oujou
    I promise you: the next time you deceive me; I will rip your spirit from that body and lock it up in an eternal pit of fire, watching as you burn for the rest of existence. No one will be able to find you once I get through with you…

    [Scene 15]

    Int. Restaurant – Late Afternoon

    The rangers are sitting around a table at the local Taco Bell, each one with some dish in front of them. They all laugh as they celebrate their latest battle.

    Ashley
    ..That was awesome how we got that guy.

    Piper
    Yeah, that was some amazing team work back there.

    Logan
    Well, we wouldn’t be celebrating if it wasn’t for Jude and her plan.

    Jude
    [Bashful]It wasn’t that great.

    Raphael
    No Jude, it really was a good plan; even if you caused millions in damage.

    The all laugh, their sounds filling the tiny indoor eating area.

    Jude
    Well, I just want to apologize for what I did before that. I had some personal things that had to be worked out, but now I’m back to myself.

    Ashley
    Oh great, now I can expect more bruises on my shoulder from all those punches of yours.

    Jude
    Shut up![she punches him as she says this]

    Ashley
    See!

    The other three laugh as they finish their meals, taking their trays over to the trash. Piper comes up behind Jude as she approaches the trash can.

    Piper
    Hey Jude, you still think I’m too much of a girl to go shopping with?

    Jude turns around, looking Piper in the eyes as she considers the offer.

    Jude
    You know what? That doesn’t sound too bad.

    Piper
    Awesome!

    As they turn to leave, Jude looks behind her at Raphael, who simply winks an eye at her. Jude leaves the Taco Bell with a smile on her face.

    Piper
    So, maybe one of these days I can go to one of those games with you?

    Jude simply laughs sarcastically at her comment.

    Jude
    [Imitating Dr. Evil] Yeah, right!

    [The scene fades to black as they walk toward the setting sun.]

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    [SCENE 1]
    INT. SCHOOL HALLWAY
    Two male students are standing in front of a locker; one seems concerned while the other is freaking out. The agitated one [STUDENT 1] is searching through the locker for a book, while the other [STUDENT 2] tries to calm him down.

    STUDENT 2
    Don’t worry about it man. You’ll do fine.

    STUDENT 1
    What are you talking about!? I forgot to study for that stupid Physics final, and if I don’t pass it, I’ll fucking bomb the class.

    STUDENT 2
    Well, can’t you cram it in or something? I thought he only does chapter tests for his finals.

    STUDENT 1
    Not this time. He decided to change it up, which totally screwed everyone in the class, including me. I was gonna stay up last night to study, but I fell asleep halfway through chapter 6.

    [BELL RINGS]

    STUDENT 2
    Well, the only thing that might help is that you’ve got until fifth period to study; Mr. Jones said anyone who has an A in the class doesn’t have to come.

    STUDENT 1
    Alright, I’ll try. Hopefully I can cram eighteen chapters into one hour.

    STUDENT 2
    Good luck.

    STUDENT 2 walks off toward class, as STUDENT 1 rummages through his locker again, pulling out a giant textbook and a notebook. The hallway is empty now; the only sound is paper crumpling in his locker.

    [Camera focuses on side of STUDENT 1]

    Once he closes the locker, he jumps as a woman’s face stares at him [DEMONA]. He looks up and down at her. She is dressed in a tight-fitting, low cut black shirt and a green mini-skirt, along with black Chucks. STUDENT 1 is clearly attracted.

    DEMONA
    So, I hear you’re having troubles with a certain physics test, is that right?

    STUDENT 1
    Yea..yeah. I forgot to study…who are you again---

    DEMONA
    I have a certain piece of paper you might be interested in seeing. It has the word “answer” in front, and the last word rhymes with “tree.”

    DEMONA presents a large manila folder, which STUDENT 1 eyes.

    STUDENT 1
    [surprised]You have the answer key to the physics final?

    DEMONA

    And it’s all yours---

    STUDENT 1 grabs at it, but DEMONA pulls it away.

    DEMONA
    ---But you’ll have to do something for me.

    STUDENT 1
    What is it? I’ll do anything!

    DEMONA
    You just have to sign this contract [presents a piece of paper from within the folder], which would basically mean you agree to use it “responsibly.” [Winks]

    STUDENT 1 pulls out a pen, signs the contract on the door of his locker while the camera zooms into large print and small print.

    [The user shall use these notes as study aids and study aids only. ExamAnswers.com is not responsible for any illegitimate use of any services we provide and the client the answers were sold to will be prosecuted.

    Consequences will be eternal service to the Fallen
    STUDENT 1
    Done!

    DEMONA hands the folder to him as she takes the contract out of his hand.

    DEMONA
    It’s been good doing business with you. [She smiles as she turns around and walks away]

    Ext. Ceremony
    The scene fades to three days later. It is the high school graduation ceremony, and STUDENT 1 is giving a speech in front of the graduating class. They are all in nondescript red and yellow caps and gowns, as red and yellow balloons line the stage.

    STUDENT 1
    ---and through hard work and dedication, we all made it through the best four years of lives. And now, we all pass through the gateway into the next step of our lives, and we take responsibility for what we do. Good luck everyone.

    Everyone stands up and claps as STUDENT 1, who is wearing a sash that reads “valedictorian” walks off the stage, sitting down in the front row.


    INT. BATHROOM

    After the ceremony, STUDENT 1 walks into the men’s bathroom, his arms crossed as if he’s hiding something. He rushes past everyone, and walks into one of the toilet stalls. Once he closes the doors, he pulls out his hands, which are now crimson red and clawed.

    STUDENT 1
    Why is this happening again?

    Suddenly, a red light appears through one of the cracks as three slayers pop out. They burst into the stall and drag STUDENT 1 out. He tries to scream, but one of the slayers covers his mouth. [Camera moves downward] The slayers, along with STUDENT 1 start to teleport back through the crack as STUDENT 1’s features start to morph as they move downward.

    [SCENE 2]
    INT. MANSION
    Logan, Raphael, Jude and Piper are standing around Takumi as he gives them important news.

    TAKUMI
    I called you all here because of an important development. [pause as he looks around at the four] We have discovered the Beetle Seal.

    JUDE
    Awesome!...Now I feel like I need to ask: what does that have to do with anything?

    TAKUMI
    Before the Great War between Oujou and Chiyoko’s forces was over, Chiyoko created dozens of seals, scattering them across the world. Many of them were some of Oujou’s more dangerous soldiers that could not be simply destroyed, as was the case with Oujou himself. But some were actually left as aids in the fight against the Fallen: additional Zords.

    LOGAN
    Are you serious? More Zords?

    RAPHAEL
    I’m pretty sure that’s what he just said.

    JUDE
    When do we start looking for these seals?

    TAKUMI
    Unfortunately, they can only be found when they manifest on their own. Once that happens, then they emit a certain power that can be traced.

    PIPER
    So, what’s stopping the Fallen from finding the seals themselves and activating the zords? You said they can be tracked, right?

    TAKUMI
    Very astute Piper. It is true that the Fallen can track the seals once they manifest, but they will only respond to strong tests of courage or to the nobility found in a Samurai’s blood.

    JUDE
    And what stops them from simply bashing the suckers open when they find them?

    TAKUMI
    The seals will simply remove themselves from the grips of those not worthy, that is unless the influence over the seal is so strong, that it wants to come out on its own. That is what we believe happened with Oujou’s seal.

    LOGAN
    Alright then; let’s head out and start to find this thing.

    RAPHAEL
    Wait…where’s Ashley?

    They all looks around, each one looking puzzled as to where ASHLEY could be. Suddenly, the front door opens and slams shut. They all turn around to see ASHLEY, who looks pissed.

    LOGAN
    Hey, Ash?

    He turns around from trying to head upstairs.

    ASHLEY
    [Angrily]What?

    JUDE
    We were wondering where you were?

    ASHLEY
    I was nowhere. I’ve got some stuff I gotta do upstairs.

    LOGAN
    Ash, wait?

    Ashley runs up the stairs, ignoring the others. Piper gets up and heads toward the stairs.

    PIPER
    I’ll go check on him.


    [SCENE 3]

    INT. LIVING ROOM – DAY
    Demona, in her human form, stands in front of an older looking sofa, her arms crossed as she looks pleased. The camera pans around to face two people sitting on the coach. They are an elderly white couple, but they are disfigured. They have red patches all over their skin, fangs sticking out of their mouths and claws for hands. They appear to be human/slayer hybrids.

    DEMONA
    You see, this is what happens when you let your prejudices get in the way. Now, I will admit that I took pleasure in killing that nice black boy your granddaughter was going to marry, but you simply let your selfish beliefs get in the way of true love. You’re biased hatred is the kind of thing that feeds the very crimes that you seem to hate so much. So, it is with great honor that I welcome you to Lord Oujou’s army.

    Demona leans in closer; her eyes glowing yellow as the elderly couple’s glow
    blue. What remains of their souls fly out of their bodies and into Demona. She then changes into her monster form as two slayers crawl out from between the floor boards.

    DEMONA
    Take these two pitiful creatures away.

    As the five of them teleport through the gaps, she reappears on the Forsaken Angel.


    INT. SHIP

    Demona walks over to Oujou [Monster Form], who is staring out the window of the ship. She puts her arms around Oujou, and leans her head against his shoulder.

    DEMONA
    My Lord, the plan is working. Now that the time has come, we can easily convert thousands of humans, increasing our army and feeding our strength.

    OUJOU
    [Turns head to face Demona]I knew I made the right decision in making you one of my trusted warriors.

    Demona leans in to kiss Oujou, and they lock lips for several seconds. Once they pull away from each other, the tail of a blue soul can be seen entering Oujou’s mouth.

    DEMONA
    A gift for you.

    OUJOU
    I taste the hate within their souls. They will make excellent additions to my army.

    Octovilius can be seen at his desk, looking down at his notes, his fists clenched.

    OCTOVILIUS
    [To self] This is the same exact way I was converted….


    [SCENE 4]

    INT. MANSION – UPSTAIRS
    Piper quietly goes up the stairs as the yelling of Ashley can slowly start to get louder. Piper stands against the wall, listening to the conversation.

    ASHLEY
    ---I’m trying my best here. I’m still working at that job, but I can’t work as many long shifts as I used to. [Pause] No, I’m not wasting my time, I just can’t work as many shifts. [Pause] Have you not seen the news? It’s impossible to get a job nowadays, especially with my work experience.
    [Pause] You know what, I’m working my ass off here! If you wanna patronize me about my responsibilities, go talk to that drunk of a dad and see what he says!

    The sound of the phone slamming against a wall is heard. Piper takes in a deep breath and opens the door to see Ashley sitting on the edge of his bed with his head in his hands.

    PIPER
    You alright Ashley?

    ASHLEY
    Piper! How much did you hear?

    PIPER
    Just enough to know that something’s wrong.

    Piper walks over to the bed, and sits next to him, looking at him with concern in her eyes.

    PIPER
    What’s going on?

    Ashley reluctantly looks over at her, and then gets up, his hands in his pockets and walks over toward the window. He turns around, and stares above her head, like he’s talking to a wall.

    ASHLEY
    My family and I our in a bit of a bind right now. I have some student loans that got way out of hand, and my parent’s tried to pay them off early by investing in some stupid time-share deal back east. Needless to say, it didn’t work out so well. And because of this ranger gig, I’ve been having trouble getting the shifts I need to pay off the debt.

    PIPER
    So, what are you going to do about it?

    ASHLEY
    There’s nothing I really can do. I’m pretty sure saving the world trumps paying down credit, but sometimes, it’s hard to tell what is more important. The fate of the world, or the fate of my family.

    PIPER
    Well, I can’t really tell what is more important. But, I can tell you that sometimes, the most important thing is what your heart tells you to do. And if that means you have to quit being a ranger to do it, then that’s what you have to do. You have to do what you think is the important thing.

    Piper gets up and walks out of the door and heads downstairs as Ashley looks out the window, running his hands through his hair as he stresses. Suddenly, his phone goes off, and he runs to pick it up. He reads the caller ID, and it reads “Kashif”. Ashley flips the phone open and puts it up to his face.

    ASHLEY
    What’s up?

    KASHIF
    [Heavy Indian Accent] Ashley, I need you to work the store tonight. Harold called out again, and I need someone to cover the night shift.

    ASHLEY
    [Reluctantly]Sure. I’ll be there in thirty.

    Ashley hangs up the phone, pulls his Seven-Eleven shirt out of the closet, and heads out on his bike down the street.


    [SCENE 5]

    INT. STORE – EVENING
    Ashley walks through the double doors of the Seven-Eleven from the first episode, slipping his work shirt on over a black t-shirt. Once he clocks in, he goes up front to see his coworkers and friends, Chris, David, and Matt stocking the shelves with various objects.

    ASHLEY
    Hey dude, what’s up? [Going up to Chris and fist-bumping]

    CHRIS
    Not much man, just trying to work for a living.

    ASHLEY
    Yeah, I hear you there. So, have you heard that new track that Primordial Sludge put up on their page? That thing is awesome.

    DAVID
    I did, that new guitarist they got doing the solo was kick ass.

    ASHLEY
    I know, right?

    MATT
    So what have you been up to? We haven’t seen you in like four days.

    ASHLEY
    Oh, um, nothing much. I just got this thing I have to do, so I can’t work as much.

    DAVID
    Really? More important than this place?

    The four laugh, followed by Ashley noticing the gloves on Matt’s hands.

    ASHLEY
    Hey Matt, what’s up with the gloves?

    Matt looks around nervously, looks down at his hands, and then back at Ashley with a smile.

    MATT
    Oh, nothing. I just burned my hands trying to fix the hotdog machine a couple days ago.

    ASHLEY
    [Grimacing] Ah, sounds like fun.

    MATT
    Oh, yeah, real blast of excitement.

    ASHLEY
    So, what was up with---

    Suddenly, Ashley’s morpher goes off as Takumi tries to contact him. He pulls out the morpher in phone form.

    DAVID
    Whoa, nice phone man.

    ASHLEY
    ---Oh, okay. I’ll be there as soon as I can. *[Turning to other three] Sorry, I gotta go. I have an emergency I need to take care of.

    CHRIS
    Whaddya mean? You just got here.

    As Ashley leaves through the front door, Matt clutches his hand as he bends over in pain. In a panicked state, he heads toward the back and leaves through the back door.


    [SCENE 6]

    EXT. FOREST - NIGHT

    The five rangers run through a forest, fully morphed, with their katanas drawn. The run up a ridge and Logan signals them to stop. On the other side, dozens of slayers can be seen, some carrying torches, other searching under leaves and branches for something. In front of them, Demona can be seen, along with another monster

    Act 5 Monster: Gatler
    .

    Logan signals the rangers to run at the slayers, and they jump off the ridge, slashing their swords downwards as they land. A huge sword fight ensues as they work their way toward the front.

    LOGAN
    Stop where you are Demona.

    DEMONA
    Oh, please, do you really have to do this?

    RAPHAEL
    Well, yeah. I’m pretty sure the words “Power Rangers” means we have to stop whatever you’re doing.

    DEMONA
    Honestly, I’d love to stay and rip out your internal organs, but I’m busy looking for the Beetle Seal. Slayers, take care of them.

    As Demona and a handful of slayers walk off along with the monster, the rest of the slayers charge the rangers.

    LOGAN
    Alright everyone, you know the drill. [Spinning the red disk on his katana] Inferno Buster!

    Logan swipes the giant broadsword at slayers, knocking a few down. He blocks three sword strikes with the blade, and then uses it to spin and kick a few slayers.

    JUDE
    Sounds good to me. [Spinning the green disk on her katana] Forest Javelin!

    As the green javelin appears, she lunges at a few slayers, sticking the blade end into a tree, using it as a gymnastics poll to avoid attacks and launch her own.

    RAPHAEL
    Time for the Raph man to do his thing. [Spinning the blue disk on his katana] Tidal Bow!

    Raphael Jumps up into a tree, landing on a branch and starts shooting blue energy arrows at the slayers, causing them to spark as they get hit.

    PIPER
    No problem. [Spinning the yellow disk on her katana] Stone Cutter!

    She pulls the weapon back, and launches it into the slayers, making quick work of them as it spins back to her.

    ASHLEY
    Got it boss. [Spinning the pink disk on his katana] Cyclone Fan!

    Ashley starts swiping his fan at the slayers, moving through them like a dance. He approaches the final slayer, when it yells out in a young woman’s voice.

    SLAYER
    Please don’t hurt me! [Covering its face]

    ASHLEY
    What!? That sounds like…as that you Clair? [Ashley’s helmet dissolves as he approaches].

    CLAIR SLAYER
    Ashley?

    ASHLEY
    What happened? Last time I saw you, you were with Matt. How come you’re a slayer?

    CLAIRE SLAYER

    I was walking home after work, and---

    Suddenly, Claire stops short as she freezes in shock. She looks down as a sword sticks out from her chest. She looks back up at Ashley, and then dissolves as another Slayer pulls the sword out. Ashley just looks in shock as one of his friends just disappeared into oblivion.

    ASHLEY

    [Helmet Reforming] You’ll pay for that.

    [The scene changes as Ashley swings his fan in front of the screen.]

    [SCENE 7]

    EXT. ALLEYWAY – NIGHT

    Matt is stumbling down an alley, gripping his hand as a siring pain causes him to continually fall over. Stopping for a second, he pulls off his gloves, revealing his hands are turning a crimson shade of red, along with claws starting to form from his fingers. Staring at them for a second, he leans over in agony. He screams, cocking his head back up. His forehead is covered in sweat, and his eyes are starting to glow yellow. His teeth are becoming sharp and red patches start to appear on his face.

    MATT
    [Lowered, synthesized voice] What’s happening to me?

    He then starts off running again, moans of pain filling the alleyway as the Honomoto mansion starts to come into view about a mile away.


    [SCENE 8]

    EXT. FOREST - NIGHT
    The rangers continue chasing Demona after defeating the last batch of slayers. They finally spot the slayers and Demona, and Ashley jumps to attack, but Logan pulls him back.

    ASHLEY
    What the hell are you doing Logan?

    LOGAN
    [whisper] We need to be cautious. We need to find any information we can.

    ASHLEY
    [agitated whisper] What's there to know? They're turning living humans into slayers!

    LOGAN
    We also need to find out if they've found the beetle seal yet. Now get down and shut up or I'll keep you quite myself.

    Begrudgingly, Ashley kneels down behind some bushes with the rest of the rangers, his grip tightening on his katana from the anger. They listen in on what Demona is saying try and get some information.

    DEMONA
    Faster! We need to find that seal before our time is up!

    As the rangers listen in, two slayers come out from behind some trees, and spot the rangers kneeling behind the bushes. They start to move closer, trying to sneak attack them, but Piper notices the shadow of the two from the moonlight. She turns around, and sees the faces of the two slayers.

    PIPER
    Uh, guys...we've got company.

    The other four turn around as the slayers swing their swords down at them, but they roll out of the way, alerting Demona and her monster to their presence.

    DEMONA
    Rangers! Can't you just let a girl find a seal in piece?

    Ashley charges at Demona as the others square off against the slayers.

    ASHLEY
    Not when that girl is a demonic freak who turns friends into zombies.

    Ashley swings at her with a charged katana attack, but it is deflected by gunfire.

    ASHLEY
    What the...?

    GATLER
    That would be my handiwork.

    Ashley swings at the monster, but the sword just phases through his body.

    GATLER
    Heh, kiss me again, Pink Ranger.

    Gatler laughs as he fires his gun at Ashley as he is blown against a tree and falls to the ground.

    ASHLEY
    Umph, nice trick.

    LOGAN
    Ashley!

    RAPHAEL
    Ash!

    PIPER
    Ashley!

    JUDE
    Fuck-face!

    The others try to push their way through the slayers to help, but the minute they get close to attack Gatler, he just phases out of the way.

    GATLER
    Seriously, you can't win.

    Gatler unleashes a barrage of gunfire on the other four rangers, causing their suits to spark as the fall to the ground.

    Demona and Gatler laugh as they watch the rangers squirm in agony.

    DEMONA
    Let's go. We need to find that seal.

    GATLER
    Yes my lady.

    As they walk off along with the slayers, Ashley grips at the dirt and twigs lying on the ground.

    LOGAN
    [getting up off the ground] We need to regroup at the mansion, figure out a new plan of attack.

    ASHLEY
    But they might have some more converted humans.

    LOGAN
    We can't help them if we're getting our asses kicked. We need a new plan.

    They all slowly start to get up and head back to the mansion as they demorph.


    [SCENE 9]
    Int. Mansion
    The rangers walk in through the front door of the mansion, trying to formulate their next plan of attack.

    RAPHAEL
    ---I say we sneak attack them. I'll hide on a ridge and go all sniper on them. Then the rest of you jump in after my diversion and finish them off.

    ASHLEY
    That won't work. Gatler will just phase through the attacks.

    JUDE
    It's like we need more power.

    LOGAN
    We need to find the beetle seal.

    PIPER
    Wait, check it out...

    Piper points to a hand sticking out from around the corner. The five slowly move around the corner with their morphers drawn. What they see are dozens of unconscious kuroko lying on the ground. Logan signals them to be quite as he and Ashley take the lead. They begin to hear sounds coming from the great room. When they look around, they are shocked at what they see.

    ASHLEY
    Matt?!

    Takumi is tied up, his body slumped over and his face bloody from multiple blows. Behind him is Matt, now a half human, half slayer hybrid. He is holding Takumi up, holding a knife to his throat.

    RAPHAEL
    Who the hell are you?!

    ASHLEY
    Chill Raph, he's a friend of mine.

    MATT
    [frantically] You ain't no friend of mine. That woman warned me about you!

    JUDE
    What woman?

    MATT
    The one who helped me out. She said that she'd help me get the debt collectors off my back. She also said that the Power Rangers, you guys, would destroy me; that you'd destroy everyone.

    ASHLEY
    What are you talking about? We're the good guys.

    MATT
    She said you'd say that too.

    LOGAN
    What did she look like?

    MATT
    Well, she was Asian, kinda thin...

    PIPER
    [to the rangers] If he's turning into a slayer, then that's probably Demona.

    ASHLEY
    Look Matt, I can honestly say we're the good guys. They killed Claire for crying out loud.

    MATT
    I won't believe you.

    ASHLEY
    Dude, we aren't the ones who turned you into a monster, it was Demona, that woman.

    Ashley steps closer to try and reassure Matt, but he just flinched and presses the knife harder against Takumi's neck, cutting the skin a little.

    MATT
    Stay back...I'll...I'll kill him. I swear!

    Ashley draws the kanji for katana, and his sword appears in his hand, the pink disk already attached. He spins the disk on the sword, causing a pink whirlwind to surround the blade.

    ASHLEY
    Look Matt, either you can let us help you as a friend, or I'll have to kill you like an enemy.

    MATT
    Bullshit! You wouldn't try that with the old man right here.

    Ashley swings his blade horizontally, sending a whirlwind buzzing inches above Matt's head. Matt just look at the passing wave, then back at Ashley in shock as he spins the disk again, pointing the blade at Matt's head.

    ASHLEY
    Do you really want to test that theory?

    The scene ends with a standoff between the two.


    [SCENE 10]

    EXT. FOREST - NIGHT
    Demona, Gatler and the slayers continue searching for the beetle seal.

    GATLER
    [to Demona] Are you sure we'll find this seal out here? I mean, what's to say it's even here?

    DEMONA
    Don't be a fool! Can't you feel its power as we draw closer?

    GATLER
    To tell you the truth, I can't feel much of anything. I haven't had a change to eat anything yet.

    Demona just stares at him, and then continues forward. After a few moments, they come up on the entrance to a cave which bears the Honomoto clan symbol.

    DEMONA
    This is it!

    She walks toward the entrance, coming within inches of it when she is caught by an orange energy shield and thrown backwards. As she gets up, an ancient stone samurai appears out of thin air and starts dueling with her.

    DEMONA
    [In between sword attacks] Well, it appears Chiyoko guarded this place well. Too bad she didn't guard it well enough.

    With one final blow, she swings at the samurai's head with her sword, cutting the head off at the neck and causing the entire samurai to dissolve. She turns toward Gatler and signals him to enter.


    DEMONA
    Well, shall we.

    The scene changes to a dimly lit cave. They walk about fifteen yards in when they come to the end of the cave. They discover an ancient stone statue of a giant beetle with an orange colored disk sitting in the middle of its chest.

    DEMONA
    Finally, the beetle seal is mine!


    [SCENE 11]
    INT. MANSION - NIGHT
    Ashley and Matt both stand ready, Ashley with his sword glowing pink and Matt with his knife resting against Takumi's throat.

    MATT
    You know what, even if you are the good guys, this all happened because of what you did Ashley.

    ASHLEY
    What I did? What are you talking about?

    MATT
    If it wasn't for you leaving the band, I wouldn't have ended up in all this.

    Ashley looks confused as Matt continues on.

    MATT
    Dude, with you, we were going places. We could have easily been signed by this time next year, but then you had quit so you could wear pink spandex. And me, I was left out in the cold, trying to come up with some other way to pay off the debt collectors. That woman offered me a way out, and I took it. And now, this is the only way I can get out of this spot. I have to destroy you all.

    ASHLEY
    Are you fucking serious? Don't you remember that I'm having problems also? I mean, I loved the band, but sometimes you have to grow up and take responsibility for your actions. I'm still working off those debts of my own, but I'm not gonna sell my soul to do it.

    MATT
    But you're a Power Ranger; things are supposed to be easy for you.

    ASHLEY
    [yelling] Being a ranger isn't easy! I've had to sacrifice way too freaking much to do this. But it's the right thing to do. And when you made that deal with Demona, you sold out on us. Don't you get it; the right thing is usually never the easy thing.

    Matt stands there, conflicted with what he has to do, and after a few seconds, he releases Takumi and stumbles backwards into the wall.

    MATT
    Dude...I need your help.

    Ashley moves closer as the other four check on Takumi. He puts his hand on Matt's shoulder.

    ASHLEY
    Of course man. But first, we have to defeat Demona.


    [SCENE 12]

    INT. CAVE - EARLY MORNING

    Demona is trying to pull the beetle seal off of the shrine, but it won't budge.

    DEMONA
    Argh, I give up. You try Gatler.

    GATLER
    Yes my Queen.

    Gatler approaches the shrine, and starts tugging at the disk in the shrine, even putting his leg up against the statue to leverage the disk. He pulls back while breathing hard, then starts blasting it, causing Demona to panic.

    DEMONA
    What are you doing? Do you want to get yourself thrown into the Pit of Sorrow?

    Gatler points toward the spot as the smoke clears.

    GATLER
    Look at it, the thing isn't even scratched. I've never seen anything like this.

    DEMONA
    [turning around] Damn you Chiyoko!

    The scene changes to the rangers retracing their steps again, running brought the forest in the early rising sun, their blades drawn for any possible attack. They come up on an unfamiliar cliff, and Logan signals them to stop. The five of them look down and notice two Slayers guarding the entrance to a cave.

    PIPER
    Look, that cave has the Honomoto crest carved above the entrance. That has to be it!

    LOGAN
    Alright Raph, you know what to do.

    Raphael spins the black disk on his katana, causing it to glow blue and change shape into the Tidal Bow. He pulls out the blue disk from his belt and attaches it to the bow.

    RAPHAEL
    Oh yeah...

    Raphael edges closer to the edge of the cliff and slowly pulls the bow back as two energy arrows form. As be releases them, they each split off and hit the two slayers right in the chest, causing them to fall over and disintegrate.

    LOGAN
    Good job Raphael. Everyone, follow me.

    Logan jumps off the side of the cliff, followed by the others. They all land together, and slowly walk toward the entrance of the cave. The walk the length of the cave, and eventually come up on another entrance to a cavern. Inside, they can see Demona and Gatler trying to remove the Beetle Seal from the shrine, but things aren’t going well for them.

    LOGAN
    Alright, next part of the plan. Draw the two of them out. Ashley, Jude, do your thing.

    JUDE
    Cool beans.

    ASHLEY
    No problem.

    The two of them charge their katanas, causing their blades to glow their respective colors as Logan, Raphael and Piper run out.

    ASHLEY
    Alright Jude, on three. [Slight pause] Three!

    JUDE
    Hey freaks, watch out!

    Ashley and Jude move into the middle of the cave, swinging their attacks into the cavern. Once they do, they immediately begin to run out. Once the smoke clears, Demona and Gatler get up from off the ground. Demona is clearly pissed.

    DEMONA
    [Channeling Divatox] Get them!

    Gatler begins to chase after them, followed by Demona in pursuit. They travel the length of the cave, but they don’t catch up, to Jude and Ashley.

    GATLER
    [Taunting] Where are you? Your running is useless!

    Once he makes it out of the cave, he stops in his tracks without time to react.

    ASHLEY
    Surprise!

    Suddenly, Demona runs out right before five slashes of energy hit her and Gatler, but she is whisked away by a white blur as Gatler takes the full force of the attack.

    PIPER
    Nice shot!

    Gatler tries to absorb the attack, but it hits his midsection and causes him to double over in pain.

    GATLER
    You may have hit me once, but you won’t be able to do it again.

    Gatler pulls out his gun and unleashes a broad spray of bullets, each hitting the rangers as they try to jump out of the way. The rangers fall to the ground again, their suits shorting out again from the sheer amount of power the attack had.

    LOGAN
    Argh, that didn’t go like I imagined.

    JUDE
    What do we do now, he’s kicking our asses!

    ASHLEY
    I won’t give up, that’s what I’ll do. We can’t give up when things get hard. We need to push forward.

    Suddenly, a bright orange light flows from the cave and lights up the ground in front of it. The Beetle disk flies out from within the cave and Gatler tries to grab it as it flies by. It zooms around him and flies to Ashley. He puts his hand out, which causes the disk to float into his palm. Ashley simply looks at the disk and then back up at Gatler, a smile covering his face behind his helmet.

    ASHLEY
    Looks like someone else is gonna get their ass kicked.

    As he says this, he takes the disk and attaches it to his katana, causing an orange flash to cross his visor. He spins the disk on the katana, causing the sword the glow orange and surrounds itself with a flaming whirlwind. Suddenly, the Inferno Buster appears in his hand, followed by Ashley bending the hilt down, causing it to change shape into that of a cannon. He pulls out his pink disk and inserts it into a compartment.

    ASHLEY
    Guys, throw your disks into this thing.

    LOGAN/PIPER/RAPHAEL/JUDE
    Right!

    They each insert their disks, and they then gather around him, kneeling down as Ashley aims the cannon at Gatler.

    ALL FIVE
    Bushido Storm, Full Force!

    Ashley presses the trigger on the cannon, followed by the five disks spinning and then shooting out of the cannon. They each circle around Gatler, then shooting into him, causing him to explode.

    Up on a cliff, Demona overlooks the battle, a look of disgust covering her face.

    DEMONA
    You owe me!

    She then pulls out a dagger and begins drawing the kanji for “grow.” The rangers look up as Gatler grows, when he then starts heading toward the city to cause more destruction.


    LOGAN
    It’s zord time!


    [SCENE 13]
    [Song of the Week plays here: Anti-Flag - We Are The One
    Logan appears in a fire background, throwing the black origami pentagon with the red kanji symbol up in the air. He takes out his brush morpher and converts it to brush mode.

    “Lion Zord!”

    He draws the kanji for ‘Zord’ as the lion emerges from the origami and stands triumphantly.

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT ONE]
    Logan teleports into the cockpit and places the black disk onto the Samurai Katana. He places it on the podium in front of him to serve as the control.

    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]
    A split screen zord summoning. Each ranger is in a background surrounding their own element as they throw the shells containing their Zords up in the air and drawing the Kanji for Zord with their brush morphers.

    “Dragon Zord/Turtle Zord/Bear Zord/Monkey Zord!”

    The Zords open and strike unique poses each.


    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]
    The zords combine. Lion becomes the chest and a section of it lifts up to become the face, Dragon and Bear become the feet, and Monkey and Turtle become the arms. A component of the dragon separates as they fuse together to form a samurai helmet. The megazord puts the helmet on its head as a strap generates and the sword materializes. The megazord strikes a pose against a Cliff side background with waves raging against it and the rising sun behind it.


    All
    Bushido Megazord!

    EXT. CITY - MORNING

    The megazord unsheathes its sword, immediately taking a swipe at Gatler, but Gatler just phases out of the way like before. The megazord stumbles out of the way after the sword passes through Gatler.

    GATLER
    Nice try, but just because I’m bigger doesn’t mean I can’t do the same old tricks.

    Gatler pulls out his gun and shoots the Megazord, causing smoke and sparks to fly everywhere.

    INT. COCKPIT

    The rangers try to maintain their footing, but the impact from the gunfire causes them to fall.

    EXT. CITY

    The megazord stumbles backwards and then falls onto one knee as Gatler laughs gleefully.

    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]

    INT. COCKPIT

    The rangers pull themselves up as smoke fills the cockpit of the Megazord.

    JUDE
    Well that worked out well, didn’t it?

    PIPER
    Jude’s right---

    JUDE
    I am?

    PIPER
    ---we didn’t plan this far into the battle.

    LOGAN
    We have a new disk, let’s use it.

    RAPHAEL
    Right…how do we do that?

    ASHLEY
    Relax, I got this!

    Ashley grabs his sword out of the console and exits the cockpit.

    EXT. CITY

    Ashley exits the megazord onto of right arm.

    ASHLEY
    Gatler! Suck on this!

    Ashley appears in a background of fire-whirlwinds, throwing the orange disk up in the air. He takes out his brush morpher and converts it to brush mode.

    “Beetle Zord!”

    He draws the kanji for ‘Zord’ as the disk starts to spin, absorbing the whirlwinds. The Beetle Zord condenses from the flame and stands triumphantly.

    Ashley jumps from the top of the Megazord and into the Beetle Zord, landing in the cockpit.

    INT. COCKPIT

    He attaches the beetle disk to his katana and inserts it into the controls.

    ASHLEY

    Beetle Origami Zord!

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    EXT. CITY

    The disk in the Zords back begins to spin, causing the head to spin also. It starts pushing forward.

    GATLER

    Whoop-de-do, you have a new zord. I’ll destroy it also.

    Gatler starts shooting at the zord, but it pushes through the smoke and sparks flying off of its body. Once it gets closer, it lifts its claw, biting down on Gatler’s ankle.


    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]

    INT. COCKPIT

    Ashley lifts his sword from the controls slightly, spinning the orange disk on his katana.


    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    EXT. CITY

    The head of the Beetle Zord spins again, pulling Gatler and tossing him across the city. Gatler lands on his back while the beetle zord heads back towards the Megazord and spins around to face Gatler.

    GATLER
    Slayers, attack!

    Suddenly, a group of giant sized slayers appear, but the Beetle Zord blasts them from a head mounted cannon. Orange blasts of energy hit the slayers, causing an explosion.


    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]

    INT.MANSION

    Matt, struggling to stay alive walks over to the monitor where the battle is taking place. He speaks into the microphone.

    MATT
    R-Rangers…y-your boss told me t-that you can combine the Beetle Zord with your own Megazord to form a new one.

    ASHLEY
    (V.O) Matt, what are you doing, you’re supposed to be resting!

    MATT
    Thought I-I’d help ya somehow….

    INT. COCKPIT

    ASHLEY
    Alright, time to show this freak how it’s really done.

    Ashley pulls his sword fully out of the controls, points it upwards and spins the orange disk on the blade.


    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    EXT. CITY

    The beetle megazord starts to rise upwards.

    [ORIGNAL FOOTAGE]

    ASHLEY
    Bushido Megazord, Spirit Infusion!

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    The Beetle Zords legs separate from the zord and fly off.

    The Bushido Megazord pulls off its helmet, followed by the Beetle Zords legs attaching to the sides of the Megazords arms. The body of the Beetle Zord attaches to the Megazord’s head, followed by the smaller of the two claws to separate, revealing the face of the megazord.


    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]

    INT. COCKPIT

    An orange kanji for Beetle flashes on the screen, followed by Ashley teleporting into the cockpit in a flash of light in front of the center console. Ashley takes his sword and inserts into the controls.

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    A giant orange disk spins behind the Megazord as it poses.

    ALL
    Strike Ram Megazord!

    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]

    PIPER
    What is this?

    LOGAN
    Takumi told me this is what happens when the power of the extra zords and the Megazord combine.

    ASHLEY
    Worry about it later; we have some ass kicking to do.


    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]
    The megazord points its sword forward, causing the slayers to step back.

    GATLER
    Don’t be a bunch of babies. Shoot them!

    The slayers fire arrows at the megazord.


    [Original Footage]

    INT. COCKPIT

    ASHLEY
    Orange Stream!

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    The Megazord shoots out beams of orange light that destroy the arrows, passing by the explosion and hitting a few slayers. As they explode, a few more slayers push through the explosion and run at the Megazord. The megazord walks through them, hitting each one with a swipe of its sword. It then shoots beams at the three of them, destroying them. The megazord turns around to face Gatler.

    GATLER
    [Panicky]You can’t destroy me! I can just phase past your attacks.

    The megazord sheaths its sword, firing beams at Gatler, causing him to drop his gun.

    The megazord kneels down, closing the smaller claw on the Beetle Zord’s body.


    [ORIGINAL FOOTAGE]
    INT. COCKPIT
    They all pull their swords from the controls, spinning the disks on their katanas.

    ALL
    Blazing Cyclone Cannon!

    [SENTAI FOOTAGE: SHINKENGER ACT 5]

    EXT.CITY
    The head of the Beetle Zord starts to spin, causing flakes of orange light to gather between the claws, forming a ball of fire. The megazord releases the fireball, shooting it at Gatler. It hits his body, causing it to short out with red energy. The smaller claw opens up to reveal the Megazord’s face again.


    GATLER
    Ah shit!

    Gatler falls over, his body exploding as the Megazord turns around and strikes a pose.


    [SCENE 14]


    INT. MANSION - DAY

    Back at the mansion, Matt is screaming in pain as the rangers power down and rush towards him. Takumi tends to him.


    TAKUMI
    The transformation is going too quickly.... I can’t stop it…


    Matt’s mostly transformed Slayer face blinks, his eyes suddenly going blue.

    ASHLEY
    Huh..?

    TAKUMI
    It appears the monster’s destruction gave him his soul back.

    MATT
    N-No…I-I probably deserve it…

    ASHLEY
    Don’t say that man…

    MATT
    No…you work your ass off every day to make people happy at the cost of yourself, me being a lazy bum got greedy and tried to work my way to the top without any effort.

    ASHLEY
    Well, as long as you admit your mistake…I’ll keep on fighting to pay my debts and to balance my life as a ranger…

    MATT
    I’ll…a-appreciate that bud…

    Matt’s about to close his eyes when an arrow shoots past the rangers.

    LOGAN
    What the…?!

    He turns his head to find an arrow in a tree with a bag with the Kanji symbol for “Salt” engraved on it. He turns his head further to find a figure in white armor disappearing in the distance. Logan tries to pursue, but realizes Matt’s still in a dangerous condition.

    JUDE
    What is it…?

    LOGAN
    Salt…. [He goes over to find a note engraved on it]….this will reverse the Fallen transformation…the monster’s destruction ended the deal Matt had made with him…


    RAPHAEL
    What’s salt gonna do?


    PIPER
    In Japanese mythology, salt was used as a purification tool…

    ASHLEY
    Let’s try it.

    (They apply the salt on Matt…and almost instantaneously, he reverts back to normal)

    MATT
    W-What happened…?

    ASHLEY
    You’ve just been given a second chance.

    MATT
    …Thank you… [he hugs Ashley]


    ASHLEY
    Just don’t go scaring me like that again, ya hear?

    MATT
    Right…we’ll work our way back up from rock bottom. Get famous the hard way. [laughs]

    ASHLEY
    Glad to hear it…glad to hear it…

    LOGAN
    Who was that who gave us the salt though….?

    JUDE
    Does it really matter?

    ASHLEY
    Yeah, I mean; let’s just take it for what it’s worth. Someone tried to help us.

    LOGAN
    I still have a feeling that we’ll need to find out.


    [SCENE 15]

    INT. SHIP
    Oujou is absolutely furious, gazing fiercely at the Sanzu River. When Demona returns, she goes over to him. He turns around growling madly as Demona cowers in fear. Oujou goes to strike her when… he calms down. He turns back to the window.

    OUJOU
    So the rangers have the Beetle Seal...no matter…we can just simply grab more souls to build our armies with our agreements…

    OCTOVILLUS
    My lord…

    OUJOU
    What is it…?

    OCTOVILLUS
    When Gatler was destroyed, he took the majority of the souls we had acquired using it. We also need a higher amount of souls to attempt that magic again.

    OUJOU
    Why can’t we use those we have still?! The mutations should still be in effect!!

    OCTOVILLUS
    Someone’s been using salt to purify their bodies…

    OUJOU
    WHO?!

    DEMONA

    Jupiter’s back…

    They gather together in discussion, as the distorted voice is heard again, although only slightly clearer than last time.

    VOICE

    The first piece of the puzzle…

    Starting from Episode 5 onwards, get an short mini adventure you won't see on RangerTalk with the latest Bushido Scroll [I asked Orangey about this and it's alright to post the scrolls elsewhere so long as we don't post the episodes themselves there]!

    This could be explaining something that wasn't very clear in the episode, a bit of background info to the mythos, or simply something behind the scenes while the rangers weren't looking.
