I’ve shipped Umeko/Mikoto ever since
Deka vs Aba. Recent Gokainger events made me think about this pairing
once more, and write it. Spoilers for Deka vs Aba and Gokaiger 18.
Ghostly Mouth to Solid Ear
“Mikoto,” Umeko said, grinning. Her on-again, off-again boyfriend –
mostly because he’d died before she’d ever met him, and it was terribly
awkward to explain why one’s boyfriend tended to wink out when he got
bored – was sitting there on her sofa as if it was totally normal.
“It’s nice for you to visit.”
He was smiling, the enigmatic smile of the doctor who had eaten the
canary. Which meant that something was going on, though Umeko had no
idea what, and hoped that it wasn’t too destructive. His quest for
excitement had been what had gotten him killed, from what his teammates
had told her. “I thought you might want to know,” the ghost said, “That
we’ve found someone to temper those wild pirates of yours.”
She wondered if he’d been haunting Dekabase when her team had been
comparing notes about the Gokaigers. Technically speaking, they weren’t
breaking Earth law or intergalactic; their feud was with the Zangyack
Empire, and therefore, they didn’t fall under the space police’s
jursidiction. Unofficially, the Dekaranger team watched them with
concern, as they weren’t always careful about paying attention to what
they were doing.
“Really?” she exclaimed, hopping in his direction. Maybe he would stay
for a few hours.
“A young man who decided to save someone by getting himself run over,”
Mikoto said, looking for all the world like he was relaxing on her
couch. “He reminds me a lot of Ryouga, actually, all enthusiasm.” That
was a good sign; she’d met Hakua Ryouga and the man was a good team
member. “And hope,” MIkoto added. “But I don’t think he’ll be boring,
One didn’t attract Nakadai Mikoto’s attention by being boring, she knew
that. She was happy that he found her just as interesting as she found
him amazing. “How?”
He laughed again. “Let’s just say that his drive to save the universe
will be to this world’s advantage, especially with a device to help.”
A new Gokaiger, one who looked out for Earth. That’s what he was
talking about, Umeko realized. One that might be more law-abiding than
his teammates, though that was questionable. But anything that would
make their job easier was a good thing. “What’s his name?” she
“You’ll meet him, soon enough.” And with that, Mikoto disappeared,
leaving her apartment and her couch empty.
Oh well, she thought after pouting for a second. She treasured any time
she had with Mikoto, and this time was no exception. And Boss would be
happy to know the news too, as would Ryouga.
She skipped to where she left her phone, smiling all the way.
