Notes: A Gai POV from mid-17, with speculation
from the 18 preview, so spoilers. Gai seems to require a lot of
Just a Little Bit of Help
That… could have gone better," Gai said. He had to admit, it was
terrific, being able to be a Sentai member, having dreamed of being one
for years. He wasn't expecting that his team would reject him. He'd
keep trying, of course, because of course all they needed was a little
bit of help.
When the man in white, Abarekiller, had told him he could be one of the
best warriors, he had nearly pissed his pants in the excitement. Here
was his chance to make a difference, be a hero! The other teams had
saved the world, this one would too, and he would make it happen!
He hadn't transformed yet, because he'd wanted to present himself to
his new team, first. He'd expected them to embrace him just like any
good team did, but looking back, they were pirates, after all. He was a
good guy and they were kind of selfish, most of them. Oh, Green and
Pink were kind of nice, but the others didn't care a whit about saving
Obviously, he'd have to win them over and make them into what they were
supposed to be. Sure, he'd have to be a Loner Sixth for a while,
something he wasn't expecting to have to be. In his dreams, he'd always
expected to be the leader's long-lost friend, to be honest. Not the
good teammate on an evil team.
Yeah, all they needed was time. And exposure. They'd take to him, he'd
become part of their team, and things would happen as they were
supposed to happen. He just needed to be persistent.
Standing up, he charged forward, because that's what heroes did.
