Lose Them! The Evil Pursuers (ふりきれ! 邪悪な追跡者 Furikire! Jaaku na Tsuisekisha) is the forty-second episode of Denji Sentai Megaranger. This is the fifth of the six episode and the beginning of the two-part conclusion of the Neziranger arc.
The Megaranger work to guide Miku away from the remaining Neziranger, who are working together to track down and reveal their prey.
The remaining Nejiranger are now able to recognize the voices of the Megaranger. So, they disguise themselves as humans and search the city. Chisato witnesses the evil trio attacking a girl who they mistake for Mega Yellow. Miku oss still shopping in the city, and the gang tells her what had happened. For the time being, Miku cannot speak or the Nejiranger would recognize her.
Miku breaks her silence when a baby is almost hurt. This costs her her anonymity and the Nejiranger narrow in on her. Thankfully, Yusaku intervenes and the Nejiranger realize that he is Mega Silver. The Neji trio track him down to a construction yard, and the six Megaranger confront the enemies.
Once the Megaranger defeat their opponents, the Nejiranger transform into their monster forms - Neji Phantom, Vulgar and Sophia. Delta Mega, Mega Winger and Mega Voyager simultaneously blast their finishing moves at the beasts. However, all three creatures survive and Mega Voyager is pulled by Neji Vulgar into a portal. Mega Black forces Mega Red to evacuate, and the team watches the sight from below.
