Summary

 

Maito travels by train with Gaine to another country to visit Maito's friend President Justice. Gaine tells Maito to be careful and Izumi agrees because the president has been the target of 17 assassination attempts by terrorists. Maito recalls 3 years ago after his dad died that in the country there were several coup d'etat. Eventually some terrorists took hold of a family and Maito's father's friend Mr. Justice formed a group and saved the family. Maito says he learned how to fight against those people and now he needs their help. In Nouvelle Tokyo city Hoikowloh hears on that news that the Senpuhji family is sending the train Eagle No. 5 as a special gift. Hoikowloh gets mad at hearing this as the special VIP train he had for the president was rejected; he feels humiliated over this. He plans to get his revenge on the Senpuhji Company and the president and calls in Chin Jyan Roso. Chin arrives in the other country and starts to put the plan in action. Shortly after, Maito arrives and meets with President Justice. In a car ride in the city Maito notices many guards and the President says the terrorist group "Black Lightning" is causing a lot of troubles. Later on in a hotel Maito asks the President why he is thinking of not taking the Eagle No. 5. Justice says it's a dangerous time and he doesn't think its right for only him to ride in a safe train. Maito says that is fine with him but he is leaving the train behind as it's important for Justice to remain president and keep the peace of the country. A leader of an army wonders why the president has to rely on a train when he has a strong army and orders no one to be allowed near the train; however a disguised Chin sneaks in and plants a device on the bottom of the train. The next day Justice tells Maito he plans to take the train, and Maito says even if the train is perfect the president has to be cautious of the staff. In a forest Chin meets with the leader of the "Black Lightning" and collects money since Hoikowloh makes a business deal with the terrorists. Chin plans to tell the leader of the terrorists, who was the man Justice defeated before, where the president will appear. While Izumi is explaining that the train can withstand missiles and explosions and has no weapons the train is suddenly attacked by three robots belonging to "Black Lightning." The army fights back but is losing, so Maito orders Gaine to launch. Maito gets in Might Wing and then orders the Animal Express to scramble.

 

Gaine appears and starts to attack the terrorist robots, but since they are military robots Gaine starts to lose. The Animal Express arrives attack the robots to help Gaine. Chin activates his device on Eagle No. 5 which causes it to start moving by itself. Izumi tries to stop the train but fails. Gaine and Might Wing travel off to stop the train, leaving the Bombers behind. The Bombers transform into their animal forms and attack. Chin activates the device again, which causes the train to switch rails on a track that leads off a cliff. Gaine and Might Wing attempt to stop the train but have trouble and can only slow it down. Maito accesses the computer and finds info of a device on the bottom of the train and tells Izumi to get rid of the device as she is the only one that can. Justice stops Izumi and says he would be best, but Izumi insists she must go because if something happened to Justice veryone would be sad. Izumi almost falls but is saved by Justice. She then manages to remove the device and they stop the train. Might Wing, Locomoriser and Gaine then combine into Might Gaine and go help the Bombers. The Bombers also combine to form TriBomber. The terrorist mecha prove to be no match for the combined power of Might Gaine and TriBomber and they lose, with Maito finishing off one with Ichimonji-Giri piloted by the leader and TriBomber getting two. Chin gets mad at Might Gaine and swears next time they'll get revenge. Back in the train station the main army guy asks Aok if the Senpuhji Company can make a Might Gaine for them. They return home and Maito says with the destruction of "Black Lightning" the country will be safer, and he compliments Izumi on her new suit.

 

Commentary

 

As opposed to being in Nouvelle Tokyo City for the first four episodes, the fifth goes to some unnamed country and features President Justice. Hoikowloh makes his reappearance in this episode with Chin doing most of the dirty work. Though this time around the enemies are just some random military robots as apposed to a specialized robot for destruction. However, they proved to be no match for the Brave Express. Luckily they managed to stop the train before anyone got hurt. President Justice proved to be a great man, and was even hesitant of taking the train as he cared for his people first. It's a shame his country has so many problems with terrorists.
