Naniwhatever Anyway, A Scramble Intersection Robo!? (浪速ともあれスクランブル交差ロボ！？ Naniwa Tomoare Sukuranburu Kōsa Robo!?) is the fortieth episode of Gekisou Sentai Carranger. It features a peculiar event in Super Sentai history involving the first "switching" of mecha parts, leading to the creation of the Scramble Intersection Robo using parts of both RV Robo and VRV Robo; this will further be formalized with the later introduction of Auxiliary Mecha within the franchise and the greater usage of alternate mecha combinations.
Minoru befriends a traitorous Gorotsuki and shows him the ways of Osaka, unknowing of the true nature of the Bowzock's plans against the Carranger.
to be added
- "Naniwa" in the title refers to the old name of the city of Osaka, as is connected to Minoru's heritage as revealed in this episode. Many aspects of Osaka are mentioned in this episode, including takoyaki (which was invented in the city), kitsune udon and the Hanshin Tigers (who play in nearby Nishinomiya but is typically seen as the home team for Osaka)
- Scramble Intersection Robo is the first time mechs were mixed and matched by a Sentai team; this would become more commonplace in Sentai with the introduction of auxillery mecha, particularly since Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger.
Gekisou Sentai Carranger Volume 4 features episodes 37-48.
