Summary

 

At night in Nouvelle Tokyo City a man eats some natto, but all of a sudden a robot force enters his house. They destroy the natto and capture the man. The next day Maito hears his schedule from Izumi but doesn't care and says he won't have enough time for a date. In Catherine Vuitton's castle an alarm goes off at noon. She gets a message from Audrey that one of her prisoners escaped. All of sudden Maito's limo stops and Maito runs out to see an old man so frightened at the site of natto in a nearby store window that he runs in front of a truck. At the police station Maito tells Shouichiro about the old man who ran away from natto. Shouichiro is shocked and says it's another natto case like the robot that attacks a natto factory. At her castle Catherine visits her prison where the robots are forcing people to eat natto and even swim in natto. She plans to make all the world's natto lovers hate natto and destroy all the world's natto. In Maito's mansion Yujiro celebrates his birthday without Maito, who was busy. Izumi tells Hamada that it's not really his birthday but he celebrates it once a month. The party guests are served natto and Hamada tells Izumi Maito is guarding a natto factory. At the natto factory Sally thinks of Maito, but suddenly a giant robot named Fromage attacks with Catherine watching on. The robot is about to attack Sally but all of a sudden Might Gaine arrives and sees it's Catherine behind this. He asks her what her plan is. Catherine says one week ago while she was viewing her art collection she ran into the new cook, slipped on some natto and got some in her hair. She says natto humiliated her and is a danger that she'll wipe from the face of the Earth. Maito scans the robot and sees it is more powerful so Gaine decides to use their speed and attacks. Fromage attacks with Special Diamond Attack knocking Might Gaine down and giving it a severe beating before it runs off. Sally runs up to Might Gaine calling for Maito as Fromage destroys the factory. In another location Fromage destroys a chicken coop since the egg is like the daughter of natto. Then in a forested area she destroys a forest since people eat natto with chopsticks. In the hospital Maito wakes up while Sally and his friends are in the hallway. Sally leaves flowers by the door and walks up after hearing he woke up.

 

On the news it's reported the price of natto has increased to $5000 for
50 grams of natto. Hamada tells Maito that all the natto factories in Japan were destroyed by Catherine. Aoki adds in her soldiers are everywhere making it nearly impossible it get natto. In a dark alley Yujiro meets with some men and purchases some natto. Suddenly Catharine's soldiers arrive and destroy the natto and capture Yujiro. The police, led by Shouichiro investigate the area; later and Maito and Hamada arrive to see his grandpa's shoe. Maito then sees a trail of natto and follows in Might Wing. Yujiro is thrown in a pile of natto and thinks of it as heaven. Maito sneaks into Catharine's castle and sees a bunch of people in natto getting tortured. Maito is attacked by the robots. Fromage attacks a train track where a natto train is, but Gaine transforms and attacks. In the castle Maito beats the robots but is attacked by Audrey. Outside Gaine is attacked but the Divers arrive and transform into Guard Diver and attack Fromage. Maito is grabbed by Audrey's whip to be dropped into natto but he steps on the heads of the people to escape and knocks Audrey into it. Maito wants to rescue Yujiro, but he thinks of it as heaven and refuses to leave. Outside Might Wing arrives and they combine into Might Gaine. Fromage attacks but Might Gaine counters with Dou-Rin-Ken. Guard Divers tries to help back Fromage but fails, Might Gaine is then grabbed and starts to get crushed but TriBomber arrives and attacks. TriBomber attacks with Bomber Missile, Guard Diver with Hydro Cannon and Might Gaine with Mighty Vulcan. Fromage survives and counters, knocking all three over with Might Gaine spilling natto from a nearby train. Fromage then attacks with Special Diamond Attack but it slips on the natto and the Special Diamond Attack hits it in the face. Might Gaine then finishes off Fromage with Ichimonji-Giri. Natto flies everywhere including on Catherine as she yells at the natto. Later at Maito's mansion they celebrate Yujiro's birthday with natto.

 

Commentary

 

For those who don't know natto is sticky, fermented soybeans. From a
great thief Catharine Vuitton manages to degrade herself into crazed natto
hater. This is probably the stupidest episode and plot in the entire series. She slips on natto and then declares it a threat to the world? Now if that wasn't stupid enough they add a crazier part where she goes and attacks chickens and a forest for their contribution into this. Dragging people and forcing them into natto pools and forcing to eat them was a stupid idea too. From the looks of it Japan doesn't seem to have an army anymore, allowing people to do anything they want. The country only seems to have two defenders, being Might Gaine and the police.
