KR Zi-O 26 released

Last week's Zi-O rating: 3.64 / 5 (11 votes)

Alt Title: OMG Plots

You know, I was all set to bag on this episode (Come on bus driver, was Tsukuyomi standing in the middle aisle really going to cause you to crash?) but by the time it ended, I actually was looking forward to the next episode. Yeah, call me intrigued!

But it's Zi-O, so I have nitpicks. Here comes the compliment/criticism sandwich
-The twist that Tsukyomi causes the crash is kinda dumb
+But it setting Geiz off to finally use his power-up is kinda cool
-Although it would have been nice if we saw Geiz/Tsukyomi actually interact on an emotional level. I mean, they don't have to be lovers or anything. Just ANYTHING to show that Geiz and Tsukyomi care about each other or even like being in each other's company. The lack of these character moments is why Zi-O can come off as amateurish at times.
-Geiz Revive is too thick
+Geiz Revive has a cool bat form, and is finally kicking Sougo's ass
+Kadoya Tsukasa is coming back in a totally unexpected way? Oh joy! Oma Day, blah blah blah. Just give me more Kadoya Is-a-fucker Tsukasa.

The one character moment that's worked so far is that I like this portrayal of Sougo as a lonely boy, who just wants his friends Geiz and Tsukuyomi back. It's simple and poignant.

Tsukuyomi, what the fuck have you done…

After hunting down Hayase, Hiryuu finally tells Sougo why he’s after him.

After witnessing the 1st wham shot, Geiz returns to 2019 finish the job. To prove that he’s ready, he curbstomps Hiryuu.

Well, well, Oma Woz. That’s another wham you found there.

This is the whamiest of whams in this show. Sougo has more enemies than allies. Hiryuu can continue to pursue Sougo with the possibility of compromising any future encounters with past riders or Another Riders. Heure & Ora may have to cut ties with Schwartz, while he himself has batshit crazy ulterior motives with a man in black suit to match with. Yep, called it.

Excellent episode.

Wait, has Hiryuu encountered Tsukuyomi as an adult? I don't think Tsukuyomi is even on his radar, since he mostly blames Sougo for being a demon king.

Frick. Rewatched it... Hiryuu remembers her, but only has Sougo as a target.

Hiryuu's motivations are such a disappointment for such a pivotal point in the show. It is more basic than all of the Another Rider stories. The character isn't interesting enough to offset these shortcomings.

Geiz's reaction to the bus accident feels ham-fisted. I'm suspicious of the incident itself because I'm not sold on the idea that Tsukuyomi was desperate enough to do something so out of character.

kadoya fucking decade is on the bus, this means..... ITS ALL DECADE FAULT, ONORE DICAIDO!!!!

screw hiryu, geiz and tsukiomy, just bring fucking decade back and change name of show to DECADE II.

hyriu dont chasing tsukiomy just kill his char: its a pointless, dumb, simple minded char. how dafuq someone kill his parents and that dumbass goes after target of murderer instead chase down the murderer?


black woz using beyond driver? dafuq?

its interesting that noone try change what make sougo become oma zi-o and just try be friend and then kill sougo always...theres no way for that dumbass become oma zi-o without something mind controlled or change him.

another zi-o is a interesting concept and even change the rule of riderwatch to defeat another rider until sougo be pissed and start beat him, LAME script. if only geiz revive defeated another zio, geiz surely become a force to be reckoned plus fight in episode 25 make sense because all that subtle things about zio cant defeat zi-o now are just bullshit like 90% of plot of zio.

when i thought that plot had a good improvement is all falling again....

interesting that zio can travel in time and had ass kicked by anyone that have power of super speed...

gaiz lockseed armor isnt so cool but chainsaw is cool as hell, claws in blue form arent so cool but stay in nice design category.

We know Geiz right now is does not want to defeat Sougo prevent Oma from being born. So, when he saw Tsukuyomi allegedly try to kill kid sougo( i think she is firing to protect him from Tsukasa/Sworz). A thought came to his mind. Tsukuyomi is willing to do what ever it takes. Geiz himself is not. That moment gave him the push to defeat his friend.

Tsukyomi causing the bus crash is obviously a false flag. What I don't get is why Geiz thinking she did causes him to want to kill Zi-O again.

Interesting that Another Zi-O lives to fight another day and the episode switches to Zi-O vs Geiz. Kind of a lacklustre premier for Geiz Revive though.

i kinda thought that geiz awaken because she saw tsuku is really serious on killing sougo to the point she wanted to assassinate him in the bus. seeing tsuku did that geiz get rid all of his doubt and hesitation and revive pops out. its like "oh if tsuku go to that length to prevent oma zio, what im hesitating for?"

There's clearly a deliberate lack of information. We see Tsukuyomi on the bus. We also see Geiz witnessing this. Somehow this causes him to resolve to become Geiz Revive.

There have been many instances of inconsistent writing but in this case I think they're just deliberately holding back.


Speaking of Decade... Where did he even go? He just spontaneously stopped appearing.

At least on Geiz's end, the implication seems pretty strong that he becomes Revive to prevent Tsukuyomi from dying in the bus crash. Whether he believes Tsukuyomi was there because he wouldn't step up or whatever other reason, it seems clear to me he's there to save her. Yeah, it could have been spelled out better

I'm not sure of the exact details. Like I said, I feel like we will learn at least a few more details later.

I also liked how she parks the Time Mazin in a garage.

And by that I mean someone in production decided that they needed to bother doing that.
