|This article is about a/an episode in Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger Season 2.|
Delusional War (妄想大戦 Mōsō Taisen) is the first episode of season two of Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger. It recounts events from the earlier season, as well as retcons the original story by rewriting the latter half.
Visiting the Sentai cafe for the first time in 9 months, Nobuo and Hiroyo-Hakase recollect what happened during the previous battle...
Nobuo pays a visit to Sentai Cafe, and reminisces with Hiroyo and Kozukozu about the battles the Akibaranger have faced. However, some things are not how we knew them. It was Mitsuki who got summoned to the Pentagon and not Nobuo. Delu-Knight was defeated on the ground by the Akibarangers, Jetmen, Dekarangers and Boukengers, instead of in a mecha by the Akibarangers alone. Besides, they mistake Shibuyaseitakaawadachisohidenagaaburamushi for Shibuyakozorinahigenagaaburamushi and vice-versa.
©Na then uses a mecha (not the same one we originally saw in episode 12 but rather a giant version of Drill Cyclops) which is destroyed by a normal sized Machine Itashar with a can that lands on a self-destruct switch in the cockpit (rather than mis-balancing it and repelling it's own weapon as happened to Deluknight's). We then see Nobuo, Yumeria, Hiroyo and Kozukozu bid farewell to Mitsuki, who leaves to continue her training.
Back in the present, Tazuko comes looking for Akagi who she wants to deliver some parcels. He leaves to do the job, and spots Akibaranger merchandise in a shop window. Talking to the proprietor, he discovers that the series after Zyuranger wasn't Gosei Sentai Dairanger, but instead was Gosei Sentai Akibaranger!
