After defeating a company of Nanashi, Takeru becomes annoyed when his retainer, Hikoma Kusakabe, implores him to find his four vassals to fight alongside him, instead of fighting on his own. Meanwhile, on the Sanzu River, Doukoku finally awakens, and upon learning that the Shinkengers still exist, becomes enraged and sends the Akayashi Kagekamuro to attack the humans with an army of Nanashi. Against Takeru's wishes, Hikoma summons the vassals: kabuki actor Ryunosuke Ikenami, kindergarten teacher Mako Shiraishi, carefree Chiaki Tani, and pure-hearted Kotoha Hanaori. Upon meeting the four, Takeru gives each one a chance to back out of his service, and when all four decline, he gives each one a Shodo Phone. Takeru, Ryunosuke, Chiaki, Mako, and Kotoha then take on Kagekamuro and his numerous Nanashi. Shinken Red slays Kagekamuro, but in spite of that, he tells his vassals to remain on their guard.

1632 01-March-2009 Extermination Skill Contest The vassals train as Chiaki is being chewed out by Takeru for over sleeping and his lack of training as a Shinkenger. This does not sit well with Chiaki, and he ditches training to go hang out with his friends Masato and Kouji. While they're out, they are attacked by the Ayakashi Rokuroneri as Chiaki runs at the monster. However, due to his lack of training, Shinken Green is easily defeated by Rokuroneri and his extending arms prior to his friends being attacked before the others arrives to cover their escape. Telling Chiaki that he is to blame for his friends ending up in the hospital, Takeru tells him he should quit if he cannot find a means to counter Rokuroneri's talent by the next day. After giving it thought, Chiaki gets an idea and starts to train himself as Takeru undergoes his own training.

Ryunosuke and Mako manage to find him and attempt to talk to Ryota, but the boy refused to answer them and pedals off. Following him to his home to learn whatever secret he has, the two get into a discussion of Ryunosuke's personal regret of his life-long dream that he has been keeping to himself before Mako comforts him, later giving him poorly made muffler and meal as they spend the night at the stake out. The next day, they find Ryota on the move as he suddenly disposes of his baseball stuff and calls Namiayashi as he performs his end of the promise, hurting himself so he cannot play baseball in order to get his grandfather back. However, Namiayashi revealed it to be a lie as part of his plan to make the boy cry to overflow the Sanzu River. Vowing to make the Ayakashi pay, Ryunosuke and Mako transform to fight him as the others arrive. While the others deal with the Nanashi, Shinken Blue and Shinken Pink defeat Namiayashi as he revives into a giant. After the Ryu and the Kame Origami get a shot at him, Shinken-Oh is formed and finishes the Ayakashi off.

1634 15-March-2009 Kabuto Origami While the vassals spend their leisure time at an amusement park, Takeru trains to master the use of the Kabuto Secret Disk by making his Mojikara twice as strong. While he attempts this, the vassals attack the Ayakashi Yanasudare whose attacks have no effect on his flexible body and are no match for his marksmanship. Once Shinken Red arrives, the Shinkengers are no match for Yanasudare who falls back when he begins to dry up. While at the Shiba house, Hikoma install hope in the vassals as Takeru reveals the Kabuto Disc to them and it may be the key to defeat the Ayakashi once he masters doubling his Mojikara. Takeru keeps training into the night, nearly destroying himself with Hikoma watching with worry. The next day, a rehydrated Yanasudare resumes his attack with the vassals arriving to fight him as Takeru arrives to challenge him. Though reluctant at first, Takeru channels enough Mojikara to use the Kabuto Disc, allowing his Rekka Daizantou to assume Ōzutsu Mode in order to fire the Kabuto Five Rings Bullet to kill Yanasudare. When Yanasudare resurrects into a giant, he overwhelms Shinken-Oh until Shinken Red uses the Kabuto Disc to summon the Kabuto Origami. To counter the Ōnanashi Yanasudare summons, Kabuto Shinken-Oh is formed to take them out before slaying Yanasudare. After the fight, a nearly exhausted Takeru returns home as Hikoma helps him up.
1635 22-March-2009 The Abusive King During training, Kotoha accidentally injures Chiaki and insists on tending to him. When she succeeds only at unnerving him and making a mess of the room, Kotoha takes full responsibility and apologizes for being clumsy and stupid. The Ayakashi Zuboshimeshi appears and subjects his victims to insults that hurt their feelings so deeply that the verbal abuse actually becomes a physical assault. The Shinkengers are also struck down by Zuboshimeshi's attacks, save for Shinken Yellow; when the Ayakashi calls her "stupid," she is unaffected and continues fighting, forcing Zuboshimeshi to retreat. When the Shinkengers wonder why Kotoha was apparently immune to Zuboshimeshi's attacks, Kotoha simply says that everything it said about her was mostly true. Chiaki berates Kotoha for believing herself to be so lowly, and she runs out. When Chiaki catches up to her, Kotoha tells him that the one person who could always comfort her when she felt low was her sister, so when her sister became ill, Kotoha resolved to be strong for the both of them. Chiaki apologizes to Kotoha for his outburst, and they join their teammates to face Zuboshimeshi. While the others deal with the Nanashi, Shinken Yellow and Shiken Green team up and successfully disable Zuboshimeshi. After destroying Zuboshimeshi with the Rekka Daizantou Ōzutsu Mode, the Shinkengers assemble Kabuto Shinken-Oh to finish off his second life. Once the battle is over, Kotoha collapses from exhaustion. Having gained significant respect for her, Chiaki carries Kotoha on his back when everyone returns to the Shiba home.

While the others go after Yamiororo, Ryunosuke is sent to acquire the Origami itself by fishing for it. But after failed attempts to catch it, Ryunosuke receives the aid of a mysterious fisherman named Sakutaro Komatsu before being contacted by Hikoma that the others got poisoned by Yamiororo and the Kajiki Origami is needed to cure them. Though Sakutaro questions the point of his endeavor, Ryunosuke resumes fishing as Takeru leaves to slow Yamiororo down in spite of the pain from the poison. Motivated by his lord's determination, Ryunosuke finally manages to fish the Kajiki Origami out with aid from Sakutaro. With the Kajiki Disk in hand, Ryunosuke makes his way to Takeru as the other vassals came to his aid, using the disk's power to cure everyone before they change to use the Rekka Daizantou's Kajiki Five Rings Bullet to kill Yamiororo, destroying him again with the newly formed Kajiki Shinken-Oh.

Takeru and Mako stand in for the bride and groom and put up little resistance against the Nanashi, allowing Mako to be kidnapped. Mako is brought before Dayu Usukawa, who has been kidnapping the brides, hoping to use their tears to finish the brocade on her uchikake. Dayu reveals that she knew that the Shinkengers would try to stop her, so she dispatched a second set of Nanashi to kidnap the real bride. She then forces Mako to call Takeru and the others and lure them into an ambush and poises to strike Mako down. The Shinkengers arrive to rescue Mako, and Shinken Red reveals that he had his own counter-plan; the real bride turns out to be Ryunosuke in disguise and Mojikara-based clones were used to make Dayu think that her plan succeeded. After the Shinkengers free the captive brides, they battle Dayu and her Nanashi. Before they can finish her off with the Kabuto Five Rings Bullet, however, a new enemy, Jyuzo Fuwa, counters the attack. Jyuzo spirits Dayu away, with the Ōnanashi providing cover for them. Shinken-Oh, using both the Kabuto and the Kajiki Origami, destroys the remaining grunts.

But Shinken Blue takes the intended hit only to be brought under Hitomidama's control as well. As the fight continues with Shinken Red fighting Hitomidama, the other vassals fight Shinken Blue and lose to him, leading Shinken Red to take the others in retreat. When Hitomidama resumes his attack later, Takeru goes ahead to challenge Shinken Blue to a duel. Though the Shinkengers worry for Takeru and Ryunosuke, a mysterious figure arrives to reveal that Takeru is the winner in the fight. As Takeru defeats Ryunosuke and breaks the Ayakashi's spell, an angered Hitomidama summons the Tora Origami to take out the Shinkengers. While Shinken Red uses the Sisi Origami to reclaim the Tora Origami, the vassals kill Hitomidama. When Hitomidama revives as a giant, the Tora Origami overwhelms its former master as Shinken-Oh is formed, combining with it to become Tora Shinken-Oh to finish the Ayakashi off.

During the fight, Shinken Green attempts to use the Kabuto Disc to fight, only to be unable to use its power as Okakurage escapes. Soon after, an irate Hikoma chews out Chiaki as the two start to argue while the other vassals attempt to stop the fight. Later, after talking to Takeru of his actions, Hikoma takes Chiaki to a bamboo forest to explain the true nature of Mojikara and must embrace his character to access its full power. By the time the two apologize to each other, Chiaki runs to his team's aid when they are overwhelmed by Okakurage. Mastering his Mojikara, Shinken Green manages to kill Okakurage as the revived Ayakashi proceeds to overpower Shinken-Oh. After Shinken Pink gives Shinken Green the Kabuto Disc, the three male Shinkengers summon the support Origami and combine them all into DaiTenku.

After Shinken Red takes them all out, the vassals learn that the Gedoushu are now after Takeru as his death would ensure the Rokumon Junk would never be resealed. While Doukoku takes a nap from drinking too much sake, Shitari summons the Ayakashi Ushirobushi who uses the Shiba Clan's detection system to lure the Shinkengers into a trap and call Takeru out. Not wanting the vassals to risk their lives for him, Takeru changes and fights the Ayakashi by himself. Losing to Ushirobushi, Shinken Red is horrified when Shiken Blue and Shinken Yellow take a hit meant for him. But then, Jyuzo arrives to personally kill Shinken Red himself, leading to an explosive three-way sword fight with a wounded Mako and Chiaki forced to watch.

While this occurred, after hearing of his meddling, Doukoku sics the Nanashi after Jyuzo before he himself arrives to clash blades over who has the right to kill Shinken Red.

1647 14-June-2009 Samurai Promotion After the appearance of Shinken Gold, the vassals learn from Hikoma that Genta was a childhood friend of Takeru whom he obtained Ika Origami from. Before Takeru could explain why, Genta arrives late to declare himself a samurai under Takeru. As Takeru takes a step out, Genta reveals that he has been training himself for this moment before Hikoma takes the Sushi Changer from him. As the Shinkengers take their leave upon the Gedoushu making their move, Takeru breaks his friend's heart by refusing to accept him as an ally.

Later, after talking to the other vassals on how to win his acceptance, Genta poses as a kuroko to spy on Ryunosuke and learn to be more like him. While following Ryunosuke on his early morning jog, Genta is exposed when they hear the scream of schoolgirls that were gathered by the Ayakashi Oinogare as part of Shitari's plan to sacrifice them to open up a permament point between the two realms. Unable to contact the others due to the barrier that Shitari set up around the area, Shinken Blue and Shinken Gold were disarmed as they are unable to fight against the slippery Oinogare with Shitari blasts the two off and sending the Nanashi after them. After taking out their pursuers, and settling their differences, Shinken Blue and Shinken Gold save the schoolgirls as they battle Oinogare before the other Shinkengers arrive.

However, the party prepartions are interrupted by the Ayakashi Utakasane's attack on the city, devouring people's souls. Genta arrives late to the battle after encountering Jyuzo, believing him to be a food critic, but by the time he reaches the battle, Kotoha's soul has been stolen by the Ayakashi, leaving her comatose with a day to live as he walks back into the Sanzu River in spite of the male Shinkengers' attempts to stop him. The next day, Kotoha regains conscious for a bit and accepts her coming death, leading Chiaki to taunt Utakasane to come out with no success. Jyuzo arrives and tells Takeru and the Shinkengers they can enter the River by becoming Gedonin and giving up their humanity just as he had. Though tempted with the notion if it means Kotoha and the others can be saved, Genta arrives with an alternate plan to drag out Utakasane while bringing Ebi Orgami to life with their help. Using Mojikara, the group manages to bring Utakasane back into their world to destroy him before he has the chance to escape. When the Ayakashi revives as a giant, Genta enters the Ebi Origami to battle against the giant Utakasane and his Ōnanashi minions. He transforms the Ebi Origami into Daikai-Oh and, with assistance from DaiTenku, destroys Utakasane and frees all of the souls to return to their bodies. By nightfall, Kotoha's birthday party goes on without a hitch.

Finding similar humans, Chiaki attempts to stop them as he realizes they all have red eggs on their heads.

Not only does Kotoha agree, but Takeru also agrees to pose as her butler. Meanwhile, the Ayakashi Urawadachi appears, looking for a "sweet" life to consume. Ryunosuke alerts Takeru, who leaves the party abruptly with Kotoha and Genta to join their teammates and engage Urawadachi, who summons the Nanashi to keep the Shinkengers occupied as he retreats. Takeru still senses the Ayakashi's presence as he and Kotoha, still keeping up the charade, leave for her dinner with Matsumiya. Smitten with Kotoha's kindness and pure heart, Matsumiya is about to confess his feelings when Urawadachi is revealed to be hiding in his jacket. The Ayakashi begins to suck the life out of him, declaring that the only way to free Matsumiya is to kill him. Thinking quickly, Kotoha pretends to be extremely shallow, making sure that Matsumiya hears and sees her slapping and berating Takeru, who quickly catches on to Kotoha's ruse and plays along. Matsumiya is heartbroken, severing Urawadachi's hold on him. The other Shinkengers arrive to offer assistance, and Shinken Yellow takes down Urawadachi before he is destroyed with the Tora Five Rings Bullet.

With the Gedoushu becoming stronger during the summer, Hikoma reveals that the Shinkengers need the Inromaru to counter the increasing threat. Arriving at the Tengen Temple, the burial grounds of the Shiba clan, the Shinkengers are given the Inromaru after Takeru visited the tombtone of his father. While the Shinkegers have tea, the rogue Ayakashi Gozunagumo makes his move as Takeru has been poisoned by Shitari. While the vassals are overpowered by Gozunagumo, Shitari appears and offers Takeru the antidote if he tells him the sealing character so Gozunagumo can use it on Doukoku. After attempting to get Jyuzo to sample his sushi, Genta arrives and fights Shitari and loses to him. At the last second, Jyuzo arrives and spirits Takeru off while exposing himself to Genta. Back on the Rokumon Junk, Doukoku awakens and drags Gozunagumo back to the boat as he punishes the Ayakashi for acting behind his back by infusing him with some of his new-found power.
1653 09-August-2009 True Samurai Combination Entrusted with the Inromaru after Takeru gave it to Jokan prior to Shitari's attack, Genta has to complete the Inromaru while the vassals have their wounds tended to. On the Rokumon Junk, Shitari gains Doukoku's forgiveness as he gives Dayu the task of destroying Jyuzo while Gozunagumo loses his mind from being consumed by Doukoku's power. Meanwhile, Jyuzo forcefully cures Takeru of Shitari's poison, revealing his reasons were so he can fight Takeru at his full strength. From there, Jyuzo reveals how he became a Gedounin, and how he and Takeru are very much alike: acting outside of the norms of bushido to further their personal goals. The next day, Genta struggles in creating the Inromaru, having been given the Origami Disks of the other vassals, who head out to fight Gozunagumo to give Genta more time. It is just enough to allow him to complete it, getting Takeru and he bringing him to the fight with the Ayakashi, giving his friend the Inromaru. Takeru transforms and uses the Inromaru to transform into Super Shinken Red, slaying all of the Nanashi Company and Gozunagumo. When Gozunagumo resurrects with Ōnanashi, the Shinkengers use the Inromaru and the new True Samurai Gattai Disk to combine all of their personal Origami into Daikai Shinken-Oh to take out the Ōnanashi. When Gozunagumo uses two Ōnosakamata to blast them, the Shinkengers counter with Daikai Shinken-Oh using the IkaTenku Buster to destroy the Ayakashi. Takeru later returns to Tengen Temple to visit the tombstone of the Fuwa clan, thinking of Jyuzo's words about himself.
1654 16-August-2009 Dream World As Takeru prepares to duel with Jyuzo, Doukoku, furious with Dayu for not killing Jyuzo as he had commanded her to do, sets fire to her beloved shamisen. A devastated Dayu flees into the mortal realm to search for ideal victims with which to repair her damaged instrument. She runs into Mako, and the two battle until the Ayakashi Yumebakura arrives. Yumebakura attempts to put Dayu into a deep sleep, but when the Shinkengers arrive, Dayu escapes. Shinken Pink and Shinken Yellow give chase. Genta arrives, but Yumebakura puts him to sleep, then uses him as a gateway to Dayu's location. This time, Yumebakura succeeds in sending Dayu, as well as Shinken Pink, into the Dream World. There, Mako discovers Dayu's past; she was once a human woman named Usuyuki. Obsessed with a man named Shinsa, who spurned her for another, Usuyuki crashed his wedding reception and set fire to the building. Enraged that the dying Shinsa still favored his bride over her, Usuyuki pulled him to her. As Usuyuki fell to the Gedoushu, Shinsa was forcibly bonded to her and was transformed into her shamisen. Meanwhile, Shinken Blue and Shinken Green enter the Dream World to bring Yumebakura back into the real world to awaken his victims and break his hold on them. Now that Mako knows her past, Dayu moves to kill her. Mako hesitates, so Kotoha jumps in to defend her and is injured by Dayu. Shitari summons the Ōnanashi and Ōnosakamata, so Shinken Red and Shinken Gold form Daikai Shinken-Oh to fight them. Though victorious, the two Shinkengers are thoroughly exhausted from their battle and to make matters worse, Jyuzo shows up, intent on fighting Takeru, right then and there.
1655 23-August-2009 Decisive Match Number One After wounding Kotoha, Dayu takes her leave as Yumebakura retreats during his fight with Shinken Blue and Shinken Green. Jyuzo arrives for his duel with the worn out Takeru, though Genta attempts to reason with him. A company of Nanashi emerges and Jyuzo promptly slains them all before they can lay a hand of the humans, leaving to give Takeru time to heal, telling him that he'll go on a killing spree that it they don't fight him. While a debate occurs at the mansion over if Takeru should accept Jyuzo's challenge or not, with Ryunosuke the only one against it, Jyuzo talks with Dayuu, striking a nerve as she decides to live with her suffering to maintain her existence. The next day, with Ryunosuke finally understanding his reasons, Takeru heads out to duel Jyuzo when Yumebakura resurfaces. Given the Inromaru, Ryunosuke leads the Shinkengers in battle before becoming Super Shinken Blue to defeat the Ayakashi and use Daikai Shinken-Oh to destroy him with the IkaTenku Buster. While this occurs, Shinken Red and Jyuzo begin their duel to the death: despite being grievously injured, Shinken Red prevails as Jyuzo falls off a cliff. Takeru is taken back home by the vassals to celebrate their victory and tend to his injuries.
1656 30-August-2009 Switched Lives Giving Chiaki and Kotoha some sushi, Genta learns that Takeru is starting to heal from his fight against Jyuzo before he is attacked by the Ayakashi Abekonbe who transfers people's souls into objects. After fighting on their own, Shinken Green and Shinken Yellow find their teammates' souls have ended up in a Maneki Neko, a piece of sushi, a fan, and a statue. Bringing the bodies and objects to the Shiba house, Chiaki and Kotoha attempt to figure a way to catch Abekonbe instead of killing him. After pondering such a means, the two head out when Abekonbe resumes his attack. Managing to trick Abekonbe into accidentally switching souls with Shinken Green, they force him to undo his curse. Using the Inromaru, Super Shinken Green and Shinken Yellow use Daikai Shinken-Oh to destroy the enlarged Abekonbe. Soon after, as Genta is recuperating from his near-death experience after nearly being eaten as the piece of sushi, Abekonbe's master emerges from the Sanzu River.
1657 06-September-2009 Lantern Samurai Since his near death experience while his soul was in a sushi roll, Genta has been paralyzed with fear of sushi that makes him unable to help the other Shinkengers as they have their hands full with the Nanashi. As the others attempt to help out Genta overcome his phobia by each braving their own worst fears, Doukoku and Shitari receive a visit from Akumaro Sujigarano who offers his aid to Doukoku's dismay. As Genta calls it quits and takes his leave with intent to provide his team with a replacement, the Shinkengers deal with two Sakamata before Akumaro destroys the monsters and personally tests the Shinkengers' fighting skills. Confused that the Shinkengers are weaker than their predessors, Akumaro intensifies the odds by creating a Kirigami which Takeru battles in Tenku Shinken-Oh as the vassals are overpowered by Akumaro. But at the last second, Shinken Gold arrives with his newly created DaiGoyou to drive Akumaro off before enlarging DaiGoyou to take out the Kirigami. Later, as the Shinkengers celebrate, Genta reveals DaiGoyou to had been originally created as his replacement when that Hikoma force-fed him sushi as he was almost done, thereby curing him of his phobia. But when Ryunosuke's points out that he acts like a okapikki rather than a samurai, DaiGoyou gets mad at Genta.
1658 13-September-2009 Runaway Lantern After getting into a fight with Genta over not really being a samurai resulting in him being fired, DaiGoyou runs away though Genta expects him to come back. After failing almost every interview because he's a lantern, DaiGoyou is found by Mako who tries to talk some sense into him. But after he flies off upon refusing to accept Genta's words about him, Mako is forced to join the others when the Ayakashi begins his attack with the team overwhelmed by the monster's shadow clones before real Dokurobou is forced to fall back as he was about to finish them off. After having wounded tended to, Mako finds a depressed DaiGoyou working at another sushi cart and consoles him with the others watching nearby as Genta arrives and apologizes to DaiGoyou. Once the two bury the hatchet, the Shinkengers and DaiGoyou confront Dokurobou and take all the clones with DaiGoyou's light with the real one being weakened by Shinken Gold before Super Shinken Pink finishes him off. Daikai Shinken-Oh and DaiGoyou battle the enlarged Ayakashi and overwhelm him with their teamwork before using the IkaTenku Buster to destroy him. The next day, though he attempted to control his impulses, DaiGoyou gets into another fight with Genta.
1659 20-September-2009 Manipulated Academy While fighting the Nanashi, the Shinkengers are astonished to find students becoming a hindrance as Takeru identified the school they attend. To get to the bottom of it, Ryunosuke and Kotoha respectively pose as student-teacher and student in the school to investigate possible Gedoushu activity with DaiGoyou to back them up. The next day, after remembering the abilities of Narisumashi and Urawadachi, Ryunosuke targets the teachers only to find them a trance like the students. This leads Ryunosuke to believe that Kotoha's friend Eri is with the Gedoushu until she too ends up in the trance. Though confused, Kotoha notices a white strip on Eri's wrist like with the others, using DaiGoyou's light to reveal they are connected to strings. Sensing his strings disturbed, the Ayakashi Kugutsukai reveals himself as Shinken Blue and Shinken Yellow fight him. When the others arrive, Kugutsukai summons his student body to serve in holding the Shinkengers off. But with Shinken Yellow's Mojikara, Super Shinken Blue manages to take out Kugutsukai and free the student body. Shinken DaiGoyou and Ika Daikai-Oh double team Kugutsukai before DaiGoyou destroys him. With the school saved, Ryunosuke and Kotoha say goodbye to those they have helped.
