KR Ex-Aid 42 released

Alt title - Everyone sits on their thumbs while Lazer does the work

Last week's poll rating: 4.16 / 5 (25 votes)

So we have Ex-Aid and Parado fighting a hopeless fight against Gamedeus, Nico, Poppy, Brave, and Snipe playing games and reassuring patients...

All while Lazer creates the antibody for stopping Gamedeus. If that sounds boring to you, then that's this episode in a nutshell.

I'm getting so tired of the secondary and tertiary Riders not doing anything. Gamedeus was supposed to be the last boss, but we barely see his fight with Ex-Aid.

Oh God... Sawai Miyuu is playing a mom now? I remember when she was 14 years old... No, noooo...

So now Kotick pulled a Hijacked By Ganon. Good for Kiriya creating a new cure for Final Boss 1. Nico-kun, wanna be a doctor like your former rival??

Let's end this series on a good note, shall we?

Seeing how there are 3 episodes left and I'm guessing episode 44 will be the "last" episode while episode 45 is a special for Build to cameo in, I hope that they wrap up the story nicely within the next 2 episodes.

Ok, this is the point where I can't suspend my disbelief about the doctor part of this series anymore.

So our Riders go through 6 years of medical school, 2 years of internship (Emu is 6 months in I think?) and then some further training in a specialist program (cardiac surgery for Hiiro and radiology for Taiga), and after all that medical training, get employed as fighters against viruses that manifest in reality. With just a small staff of six people to deal with a national outbreak of Game Syndrome, you realize that for all these years since Zero Day, the hospital has developed no technologies to at least provide basic treatment to suppress symptoms to buy the doctors time. It is just there because our riders' regular jobs and source of income is a doctor job, and has served no functional purpose in the fight against Game Syndrome beyond providing a ward with one bed with a scanner to detect which game the virus is from.

Also given CR's workload of around one patient a week (that's the same as House MD, who often gets questioned about his department's excessive funding), it's weird that the guys wear their CR steths all the time as if they see many patients in every ward with a Bugster infection (Hiiro even carries his normal steth secondary to his CR one when examining Taiga post-op). And from there, in a time of an epidemic, an entire hospital of doctors and nurses are unable to provide any more care than fleeting psychological assurance to people who may die at any time.

Sorry Doctor Riders, this one is pushing it if a Coroner and "pharmacist" (Gashats are the closest they have to pharmaceuticals) can do more to suppress a disease than actual frontline doctors at the very outset.

At least Lazer gets to do something important again. I liked his Bike on Bike on Bike transformation.

If anyone is interested, here is a video that has the transformation jingles for Doctor Mighty XX, voiced by Lazer and GENM. It's pretty great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quHsl8NFBxA

Is the Gamedeus virus that strong or is Kuroto that frail? Kuroto is down to only 5 lives after the antibody was developed

I thought Gamedeus was pretty underused; he seemed to be more of a plot point than an antagonist. Perhaps the story got a bit rushed because of the shortened episode count.

I'm not sure what's going on with some of the protagonists recently. First Emu brutally traumatizes and almost kills Parado to get across his point, and now Lazer infects and kills Dan over fifty times to study his deaths and develop a cure, then traps him, takes his work and gives him to the authorities like a used object. All of a sudden, Hiiro and Taiga are the most likable Riders in the show.

this is it folks we get the final boss Gemdeus, the strongest of the bugsters who has all of the other bugster powers and capable of taking on the Genius rider combo Ex-Aid Hyper Muteki & Para-DX Perfect Knockout. So it would take every inch of their soul and all of their skills to defeat Gemdeus... psyche since all we need is a new last minute gashat to defeat the most powerful bugster. Pretty much a big build up to how powerful Gemdeus is only to show that all you need is a special gashat to defeat him, kinda disappointing really

speaking of gashat, Kiriya and Kuroto develop the Doctor Mighty XX gashat when the former figured Graphite can handle the Gemdeus virus so why not make a vaccine through our own bodies and despite saying he just wanted to test it out on Kuroto and that he claims to have gotten revenge thanks to Maximum Mighty X, he really wanted to get back at Kuroto because you killed me so I'll kill you for as long as I need it, then Kuroto becomes immune to Gemdeus and immediately gets sucked up and locked up with a new name because fuck it I helped stopped a pandemic despite also being the cause of said pandemic. plus I love bike on bike on bike with Lazer, it's been something I've been waiting for quite a while

so what were Hiro, Taiga, & Nico doing during the whole thing? Treat patients with Nico comforting a child infected with the virus which is fine but the other two, why not help Emu & Parad they can use the backup.

and now Cronus defeats Gemdeus and absorbs the virus so is KRC cleared or not?

Yeah, they finally introduce Gamedeus, a guy who's name means game god, and his fight is mostly off screen and he's defeated within the same episode. Kind of a pacing issue.

See this is why I was bothered regarding the nature of the Movie, my theory is that this Gamedeus was an offshoot of the real one, after all, Gamedeus was designed to be a counter to Chronos and given he didn't even react to Chronos being there and the re-programming done to old Game god leads me to believe that's the case. so for everyone grumpy about the lack of a fight, the true ending should by all accounts cover you guys for it. I am slightly disappointed by the lack of a form for Dr Maximum XX but hearing both Lazer and Dan's voices mingled for the voice lines negated the strike i placed on it. As for the episode as a whole? it felt squashed, maybe that's down to the possible requirement for the final episode to be a special for Build i dunno, I kinda understood the idea behind using Dan's life system to help quickly develop antibodies but It was rushed.

I never understood the insistence of fang/tusk like weapons, whom if given and mounted on an actual creature hunted - how would those tusks/fangs/horns function to begin with to make them viable as such.

And, Graphite keeps swinging those things like a bladed sword... How can you cut something with a cylindrical profile versus a wedge profile? The only way to really make use of a weapon like that is how many creatures use tusks/horns/fangs to begin with - piercing....

Which on a different series note - Baron keeps swinging that fucker like a sword too when clearly it is a lance...

Well she does have a good Age for a Mom with 29 thou, but honestly your reaction to this is better than the Episode itself :lol:

To bad they had to ruin it further due to pacing...

Which makes the whole mass patient endemic pointless.

Seemlingly piss-poor scheduling and resource planning for the game virus potential outbreak and hoping that weekly battles is the final cure? That forced episode is none other than trite scenes possibly joining what Emu went through as a kid and a loose connection with Nico and shows nothing what Taiga has done period despite Hirro thanking him for contributing?

Let's hope Build is not Ghost 2.0.

See, now Toei this is a TRUE KAMEN RIDER right there. Notice that there is little conflict between the motifs of the rider and motorcycle AND that this is the fucking first episode since... the beginning that we have a motorcycle appear and someone RIDING it justifying the rider portion of their supposed names.

Hi Guys. I am clearly not following the news. How come you guys know that ex-aid episode count was shortened?
Is it because the rating?
