The Present for Each (それぞれの今 Sorezore no Ima) is the ninth episode of Ultraman Taiga.

Synopsis

Someone from Homare's past has sought out EGIS to act as bodyguards. She brings along something very valuable and very dangerous, and the Villain Guild wants to get their hands on it.

Plot

The woman's grandmother had captured the Aquatic Hazardous Monster, Majappa, into a talisman-like device disguised as a perfume bottle, which was passed down from generation to generation before she left.

Hiroyuki and Homare practice the battle in the park, Kana saw a paper, called the "Factual Investigation on Damages from Criminal Alien Activity" alongside Pirika, he won by flicking Hiroyuki's head, but they hear the woman, Maiko Namekata, screaming but chased by the alien gang, Alien Keel and Hupnath, but they were stopped by Hiroyuki and Homare, who saw her in distress while sparring. Back inside the EGIS HQ, she sits on a couch while the members couldn't leave the woman alone. While Kana gives her activity paper to Hiroyuki and Homare before she and Pirika tell to Maiko. She hires Hiroyuki and Homare to be her bodyguards after being convinced by Kana and Pirika. It took a while before Homare recognized his childhood friend.

After a few short interactions with Hiroyuki, talking about Homare, the aliens came back. After a chase, Homare got into a fight with Keel and accidentally broke the talisman, unleashing Majappa. Hupnath received an ironic death as Majappa was released and blasted him to death. During a bit of dialogue between Homare and the Alien Keel, Maiko finds out that the former is actually an alien.

Hiroyuki transforms into Fuma to deal with the monster and initially had the upper hand, until Majappa used its odorous gas and invisibility to turn the tables. Maiko used her powers to see through Majappa's cloaking ability to help Fuma, who knocked it down with shuriken before switching to Taiga. Homare jumps high, lands down the ground, and punches Keel, eventually defeated. Taiga overwhelmed by Majappa's gas and suction attacks, as a few pieces of a building came falling on her, she stopped them mid-air and destroyed the rubble, exposing her abilities to Homare, which surprises him, until Taiga upgraded into Photon-Earth and proceeded to maul Majappa. The monster was finished off using Aurum Strium. With the battle over, she tells Homare about her marriage and what her fiance said to her. This inspired Homare to tell the truth of his identity to his fellow members, who did not mind at all. But he is actually an alien? Hiroyuki tells his brother that he's looking forward to our morning practice tomorrow, Pirika gives a report to Homare, and Kana told the members but he joins.
