KR Build 39 released

Alt title - Rainbow Bottle Man is here

Last week's results: 4.7 / 5 (10 votes)

It's hard to get excited when the writing's not there. Utsumi is just a generic bad guy now. The Sento/Takumi thing would have been interesting if they had spent more time distinguishing between the two, but as it is, it really doesn't feel that different to have either of them.

The scene where Sento gets his memory back is pretty good though.

Also, the episode gives you a big, fat middle finger if you asked where the second Evolt driver came from in the last episode. Maybe they'll explain it later, but still, seems sorta lame. It's like they went "Oh no, we can't have Evolt defeated, it's only episode 39. Let's pad it out by turning Utsumi into a villain."

Best face in the episode:

It was disappointing to see a retread of several topics that were covered in previous story arcs.

About time Katsuragi stopped being full atoner.

Seems karma has hurt Gentoku. Dang man, get it together!

OK episode.

Genius looks pretty cool. I like how the sound for the bottle has both Wakamoto and whoever does the Build Driver together.

Other than that, I wasn't really feeling it. I don't buy Mad Utsumi as a character and kind of wish we got more Takumi time.

It's probably due to the writing like others have said, but even though the episode ran for the same length of time as normal, this one felt way way too short. I'm going to stick to my theory about the 2nd evol driver being a fragment of Evol proper, but something did hit me while watching this episode, what if the 2nd driver came from Banjou while he was possessed by Evol? far fetched maybe but atleast it's something

Yay!!! Sento is back!
I felt the whole "Sento being Katsuragi" thing was fairly unnencesary, especially for how short it was, and I'd rather have Sento as he's the one we had since the beginning.

When was the last time Kazumi (or any of them for that matter) didn't have his butt kicked?

That's the best guess I came up with to, but then again the Series is a bit wonky on explanations as of late anyways...
Like when Stark said he need Hazard 6.0 to Unlock WhiteEvolt, yet he only absorbed a Finisher attack of a Hazard 5.0 User and not sure what Gentoku and Grease have maybe 3~4 each and it unlocked =V
Still hope we get a decent explanation for the second Evolt Driver thou... kinda hope it's not just like because Evolt was split in two, I mean what would hinder him to split eternaly and create endless Evolt drivers then?

Anyhow, yet another Piece that someone working on the Show is a huge W Fan, Genius certainly is Eternal 2.0 :lol:
And Genius looks pretty good too, for an Ultimate Form.

I'm glad someone in this series is finally smiling! :P

Overall this was an okay episode, but not great. And it should be obvious why: Utsumi. He hasn't been developed/important enough to make his face heel turn all that interesting. He's always been an antagonist. And now he's just a surprise mini-boss to allow the series to bide its time until it gets to the real final act.

Otherwise this was kind of a slow episode, which after last week's splat-fest makes some sense. Though despite having more time for drama, I don't feel like the dramatic arcs were really pushed forward? Besides Sento getting his memory back of course. In particular I want to see where we're going with Banjou's flashbacks.

And I can't really say I'm a fan of the new Build form. It's just so damn busy with different colors and bottles all over the place. But maybe it will look better in action?

I have to disagree with you there. Granted most everything comparing & contrasting them happened inside of two episodes, but while quick, it was dense and I do think they did a good enough job there. Takumi was not the villain we first thought he was - and in fact he was trying to do good the whole time. But he's short-sighted and perhaps a bit selfish due to his singular goal to defeat Evolt. As the episode so neatly puts a bow on it, Takumi is not a hero. Sento on the other hand, despite his own failures (see; every Evolt trap ever), cares about more than just defeating Evolt. If nothing else he actually tries to get along with people, whereas Takumi was a definite loner.

Also, I liked the little touch with Takumi not jumping into the Rabbit Rabbit suit pieces; instead they came to him.
The scene where Sento gets his memory back is pretty good though.
Agreed. And it's sad in a way. Takumi essentially surrenders his own consciousness - and in the process his body - so that Sento can exist. Self-sacrifice is not an action taken lightly.
Also, the episode gives you a big, fat middle finger if you asked where the second Evolt driver came from in the last episode. Maybe they'll explain it later, but still, seems sorta lame.
The way that scene went they all but promised that they will address it. And I'm sure it'll be a shocker. But I agree it's annoying that we're essentially being told we have to wait for the answer. It's really kind of an important detail.

I'm on the fence for the genius look. the whole rainbow/metal look was ok in ghost, it seemed like a natural evolution of the suit (yeah, I know)

here, it just looks like they said "make it have all the colors!"

meh.

My god is Genius ugly, the rainbow look being plastered almost everywhere and the bottles that are on it just doesn't work.

This episode feels flat. Utsumi's faceheel has no effect considering he's just not given much development. So this explains the I'm a genius part in Sento, now I want to punch in the face twice when he does it. Speaking of which yay Sento and Takumi have become one. I like the scene when Takumi and Sento meet face to face though. And you're not gonna explain where that other evol driver came from Evolt? Come on, that was a slap in the face

>If nothing else he actually tries to get along with people, whereas Takumi was a definite loner.

Eh, the differences are there but they've never felt significance in light of Takumi being underdeveloped and Sento not being very likable himself (at least to me). All this memory thing really shows is that maybe Takumi isn't the devil that he was portrayed to be and maybe this is how Sento would be when he first met his friends rather than some other obvious personality.

>Takumi essentially surrenders his own consciousness - and in the process his body - so that Sento can exist. Self-sacrifice is not an action taken lightly.

I dunno, I still feel like Takumi is basically just a previous version of Sento. If the entire arc had been an amnesia episode rather than "another personality" it probably would have played out exactly the same way.

>The way that scene went they all but promised that they will address it. And I'm sure it'll be a shocker. But I agree it's annoying that we're essentially being told we have to wait for the answer. It's really kind of an important detail.

Yeah, I think you're right, but it's hard to think of what that twist is that's worth keeping is secret.

Not explaining where the second evol driver is going to be a movie thing probably. Like how in Ex-Aid they had that little bit devoted to that Johnny Maxima guy.

Otherwise, it seems stupid that Evolt can either make another one or has a scientist that can make them when that was why he needed Sento around for.

If it wasn't Shonen then Sento wouldn't have been able to just activate Genius when you couldn't. Double's manga continuation is in a way Shonen. Hell, even Garo can be looked at as borderline Shonen.

About time that scene in the intro held relevance. Goodbye Takumi. You lasted two episodes and couldn't even call your mom.
