 Running Time: 24 minutes

Meeting with Professor Chujo, Ichiro Horiguchi begins to relate his efforts to uncover more information on Karin Saeki, a physicist and the current mentor of the Wind Tribe. Horiguchi hopes that the Professor might be able to shed some more light on the situation, seeing as how he had spent some time with her in Europe 30 years ago. As it turns out, the two had indeed spent some time abroad, but it's also discovered that Saeki has been dead for 20 years. Shocked by this revelation, Horiguchi leaves to tell the other Gransazers of his discovery, but is quickly ambushed by Saeki. Fortunately, Ken Shido shows up just in time to do battle with her instead, and while Horiguchi is saved by the intervention, Ken is quickly defeated and kidnapped. Learning of this, Ken's sister, Mika Shido, rushes off to save her brother, before running into Ryoko Amemiya of the Wind Tribe. The two face off to a near standstill before Ryoko willingly hands over Ken as she was opposed to the idea of using him for a hostage. Unfortunately, the rest of the Wind Tribe is not so merciful, and after a short battle they summon their Super Star God, Dorcrus. This prompts the Fire Tribe to do the same, as Garuda arrives to face off against the other Star God. The conflict is long, but Dorcus manages to soundly beat, and heavily damage, Garuda. Fortunately, the other members of the Earth Tribe arrive, and summon their own Super Star God, GunCaeser. Before it can engage Dorcrus, however, a giant metal dragon descends from the sky. Blasting Dorcrus with a energy beam, the metallic dragon carries Garuda off with it as it vanishes. Meanwhile, the Wind Tribe retreats, allowing the others to count their loses from the battle.
