I liked that they needed approval to transform. Think about it, if they cause collateral damage, that'll cost the company money. So they have to get approval from both the accounting department and president and such. I also liked that they used the original Board alarm from the end of Blade Episode 1. The whole demotion thing really didn't make sense, I mean was he just supposed to let the Undead kill Mutsuki? And can Mutsuki really not transform unless he's an Ace level employee, even if it's to protect himself from the Undead? Also, Kivala being turned from CG to a model was really bad. It was worse thannKivat in the Net Movies. It's also weird that no one questions Decade.

One thing I really didn't like, and this may not bother people too much, shouldn't the Paradoxa Undead look like Chalice Wild Form? I mean, when Hajime slides a card into his buckle, he's supposed to take on the form of the Undead. On top of that, the Kings are supposed to look like more epic versions of the Ace Undead, and it was confirmed in the series that Chalice's Rider Form is in fact the form of the Ace of Hearts Undead. And I could've sworn that Paradoxa's Undead form here was a reused Imagin, maybe one of the Anthopper.

I liked the nod to Kamen Rider G's beverage puns here with Tsukasa doing the cooking puns. That was spot on.

Isn't Wild Chalice a combination of all the heart cards and not just the King?

Is it? They never really said, which is why I figure it is left to assume that it's what Paradoxa would look like since it was established that any card that Hajime slides into his buckle he turns into that Undead. I always thought he was the opposite of Blade. Whereas all the Spade Cards turn into Blade's King Form, Chalice's Wild Form turns all the Heart Cards into one card. I dunno, it's all just assumptions. And I don't need someone to point out while that may have been the case in the original Blade, this is AU and they can do just about anything they want. Next thing you know Chalice is going to actually be a human instead of an Undead. Just you wait, they'll screw with us like that.

Don't all the cards come out and combine with him in the transformation? I don't think he just slides it and he bursts into Wild Chalice mode the way he does with Chalice and his other forms

I just re-watched his transformation. You are correct. Still though, it just didn't look quite right to have Paradoxa look so different from Mantis. They could've maybe modified the Chalice Wild Form costume to not be so bright and colorful and then just make some other changes, or something. I dunno. It still bugs me lol.

Yeah all king forms force the user to combine all cards in their suite.

Which is why Blade had that issue with his form later on.

Not sure if that was spoilerish or not.

Well you only see two "King Forms" unless you count Mutsuki turning into the actual Tarantula Undead, which then refutes that theory, but still.

Yeah, I don't like the Paradoxa Undead design either, but I don't think there's a reason for it to look similar to Wild Chalice

I like the Paradoxa Undead's design. But I hate the actor who plays his human form. He looks gayer in this ep than the last with that supid laugh of his.

And have you guys seen a real Paradoxa mantis? It is sick, in a very awesome way.

Mutsuki would've gotten King(or Jack) form if he wasn't so weak willed. He would've been badass.

Btw, didn't he get over that little issue and literally tamed his Ace? He could've used Jack/King form any time, providing he gets his own absorb rouzer. Or maybe Jack/King forms aren't really part of his powerset?

Cool episode of Decade

Decade being a ''salaryman'' was kinda off-point and Blade-tachi have to get approved to henshin was cool except this Kazuma was a little more gung-ho then the original but everything was acceptable.

Also I noticed in the past episodes, Decade is actually using his Decade Kick more then the previous Rider series.

Um... no. If anyone, he definitely is more reminiscent of a meaner Tadokoro from Kabuto.

Another good episode. Tsukasa's reaction to getting a bonus was hilarious.

I am a little annoyed over the fact that Kuuga has been demoted to cheerleader. And before the people say that I should just watch Kuuga, my thing is that they brought him along for some reason. In a series that revolves around all the Heisei riders, would it really be a stretch if the one former rider we're going to see every episode some how got more involved? Especially considering that Kuuga is one of the more powerful riders.

It's still early in the series though, so hopefully there's more of a role for Yuusuke.

That's how I feel about it, more or less. Why bring along a Rider and then have him not be a Rider? I'm not saying I want to see him fight alongside Decade every episode, maybe not even henshin every episode. But he can certainly do more than stand around and watch everything happen.

As was said in the thread about the episode, they could've done a great gag where Yuusuke turned into Kuuga and ran at a mirror to try to enter Mirror World, then slam into it or bounce off or something. But they didn't even do that. I dunno.

It's not a big deal, really. I'm not mad about it, and it doesn't make the show suck. It's just weird, like Yuusuke forgot he's a Rider too. Or maybe even if they had said he can't use his Kuuga powers in other worlds, but since he used them in Kiva's World, they can't even do that.
