The Beautiful Teacher, in the Nick of Time is the fourtieth episode of Battle Fever J.
Maria disguises herself as a tutor to protect the supposed genius son of a powerful family from an Egos Monster abducting idiot boys who don't study.
Egos creates a brilliant, intellectual kaijin, who only wants to study. Requesting study partners, Egos kidnaps the most gifted youngsters around. Battle Fever moves to protect one gifted boy, Hojo Tatsuya, heir to the Hojo Trust Company. So Maria disguises herself as his tutor, but winds up getting caught along with Tatsuya. Although Sarome recognizes her, the kaijin spares her life as Tatsuya insists that they keep her as their tutor. When they are alone, Tatsuya reveals he’s not really gifted and was just faking it for his reputation. He is eventually found out and they are thrown in the dungeon with the rest of the kidnapped children. But Maria folds an origami crane that they fly out the window and by sheer luck reaches the others who are searching for them.
