Last week's Zi-O rating: 3.82 / 5 (22 votes)

Alt Title: You've got to go BACK TO THE FUTURE

I think I ended up really liking this episode, despite feeling like Minato's presence is there for the paper thinnest of reasons. The idea that Tsukuyomi and Geiz being the cause of the ting they're trying to prevent isn't a mind blowing twist, but it feels kind of fitting, even if it probably doesn't make any sense when you think about it.

Kind of hate it when Tsukasa is reduced to plot exposition, but at least he gets to do it with some swagger.

/me slaps the writer. Stop using the phrase "you're the same as me".

I guess they gave away the twist that Ora is Another Drive pretty early on in the episode (maybe it's wrong to even call it a twist), but I'm left with a "What does it mean, and why does it matter, and why should I care?" Ora's actress is cute, but despite being on the show for a whole year, you're still barely a character.

Another Decade being able to summon enemies is more of a DiEnd thing... Maybe you shouldn't have given the ability to turn into other Riders to Another Zi-O.

The endgame has been escalated. The space-time distortions are erasing people. To prevent this situation from continuing, a certain Rider from 2050 goes back to 2019 to escort the people of 2068 out of 2019.

However, Tsukuyomi learns that her time-displaced predicament compromised Sougo's timeline & her travels with Geiz to 2018 & 2009 may have thrown the timeline to the danger zone.

Heure seeks the gang's help, but something's wrong with Ora.

Another Drive is an impressive suit. Another Decade on the other hand reminds me of Bison from SFV. Though Schwartz should've taken notes from the very first Movie Taisen & fought like Decade Violent Emotion. Still waiting on Ride Watch nullification though.

OK episode.

Thank the ghosts of Anime Expo 2010, the Rider from Hell is coming back!!
Keep an eye on AMC's The Terror: Infamy. Kazuya Tanabe/Fuku from Amazons is a guest actor for episode 5.

More plot revelations this episode, but unlike last week, the ones here actually felt kinda natural. Or at the very least, this episode didn't leave me with a million more questions like last time. And as much as I've complained about not caring about the Timejackers before, watching Sougo reach out to them was honestly rather charming and sweet. It looks like he'll only reach one of them though!

Another Drive looks like a monster from a horror movie about car accidents. I think it actually looks cooler than the actual big threat, Another Decade! Also I know it was for (dumb) plot reasons, but I wished they didn't start just pasting '2019' on all the Another Riders. It kinda takes a bit of uniqueness away from their designs. Speaking of Another Decade, him summoning movie riders is probably the only variation of 'anniversary power' they haven't used yet in Zi-O, I suppose. Though there is no reason those four he summoned should be strong enough to give Zi-O and Geiz so much trouble in their ultimate forms!

I'm pleasantly surprised that we're not done with returning actors. Who has even thought about Kamen Rider Aqua since Movie War Megamax? Not me, but somehow I felt nostalgic and happy seeing him alongside his watery effects and other callbacks. I can even believe him being here despite the show establishing some time ago that Oma Zi-O erased all other potential future riders because time has become so distorted due to Tsukiyomi and Schwartz's presence. I have no idea if he'll just be around for two episodes like the usual guests, or if he's going to just be a new recurring character until the end, but I'm liking the elements he has introduced (or rather, expositioned) into the story.

I am glad that Oha has not stopped acting like a completely nonredeemable heel. Sougo is still an idiot for forgetting that Oha murdered Sailor-chan and had her die in his arms. So, it takes 45 episodes for Geiz to realize that what he is doing is stupid? Dramatic rain is dramatic. It would be funny if Schwartz having Decade's power comes with such undesired consequences that he gives the power back? For example, he's walking down the street chilling and suddenly a dozen alternate universe riders attack him. He beats them, but there are thousands of alternate dimensions and all of them have scores of riders who want to off the destroyer of worlds. If they off Oha, who gets her transforming Time Mazine? Also, Geiz is not a Timejacker or from the royal family, but he can pilot a Time Mazine. Even though Oha has lost her powers, why doesn't she summon her Time Mazine in Kiva castle form and have it squash and then eat stray Another Riders? And, why doesn't Heure summon his?

Only reason this episode wasn't 5/5 for me was the confusing heavy handed bullshit exposition Aqua gave us towards the end. Also, HOW DO THEY KEEP FORGETTING THAT SOUGO DIDN'T GET DRIVES POWER FROM HIM YET!?!?!?!? OTL
Beebo...HUNGRY!!!!!

What if instead of summoning enemies he actually went to the time and place the four movies happened in and took Dark Ghost, G4, and the other two I can't think of their names of from the movies and actually planted them in the world. It would build more onto the fact that the dimensions and time in twisting if those are meant to be the actual evil riders and not copies.

Why the Heaviness was used to explain Another Drive's power. I thought it was called Gravity Surges. The Heaviness means "Donyori" in japanese. The term Heaviness was used by the public in Drive series but Heure said "Jukasoku" (Gravity Surge)

We ripped it off Toei's streaming site. You'll notice there's no sponsor screens this episode.

I'm serious ok, why did you use the word "Heaviness"??? IT SHOULD BE "GRAVITY SURGE".

Hmm...when you mention it like that, there was one of LupinPat's episode which I don't quite remember but that episode also doesn't have any sponsor screens. Did you ripped it off from Toei's streaming site too ???

But I think the video have some skipped part at the beginning. You know, the part where the runners start running....
