Alt Title: How to outsmart an AI

I had fun with this episode, even if the good guys lost some IQ points post quarantine. Who's this new Gai guy? I think he's pretty fun and his eyebrow game is on point. They get Jin back, ignore his healthy skepticism, and immediately lose him again? Come on!

Looks like they've really got their mole game on for the Zero-One anime. Starts this week, like I need a secondary project at all times

I forgot how good OG Ikazuchi was before he became a mindless slave to Ark

This week's notes:
-Man, 5 minutes in, doesn't that scene look like it should be Gai talking?
-Gai, master of the eyebrows
-What, they can just talk to There whenever they want? And this is the first time they've asked There for help to stop Ark?
-Kamen Rider Zero-Two? Genius or groan-worthy, that's pretty impressive

FINALLY! Aruto even tells Mr. 1000% to stop using taht phrase.

And new Gai seems more "pathetic" primarily due to the introduction of 'real' Thouser.

I almost thought Gai was gonna get away with simply saying "Sorry for what I've done" and being forgiven.

It's nice to see different characters hold Gai up to the stuff he's done wrong. It's not just as simple as a one episode redemption arc and an apology, since he has done some literally unforgivable things to people

HELL YES!!! Not surprised that Ark got exactly what it wanted in the end, I mean how else is Aruto suppose to get his final form? Speaking of it, REALLY digging the design of ZERO TWO

I'll never feel like this direction with Gai is any good, but I can tolerate his presence so long as nobody starts acting buddy-buddy with him. I actually really appreciated that Aruto was the one who digs into him the most, and also him telling Gai once again that his catchphrase is stupid is pretty great. And I really hate to admit this, but that stupid robot dog is actually working it's charm on me.

It's... really funny to me that Aruto ends up falling for the exact same ploy by Metsubojinrai as back in episode 13. Ikazuchi unknowingly leads them to the exact same location as last time, while neither of them even realising it is a trap. I don't know what Aruto and Jin were expecting otherwise though. Did they not go there specifically to 'attack' the Ark? The Ark being there and waiting for them really shouldn't have been much of a surprise.

The ensuing fight is brutal and so is the absolutely demolished state that Aruto is left in. I mean the effect is dampened somewhat by the fact that this is the fourth time in three episodes that we've seen Metal Cluster Hopper get beaten by the Ark, but that shot of Aruto falling from the air is really intense, as is the Ark completely taking over our good, trusty satellite!

Of course, this episode already lays down the set-up for how Aruto will overcome the Ark, with a brand new Rider design of his very own! I honestly do love the thought that after all his previous forms and power-ups being created by either satellite, this newest power will be Aruto's own invention. It's a pretty perfect capstone to his evolution as a Rider. I can't help but wonder though... How is he possibly going to do that? I mean, Aruto's never been shown to be any proficient or skilled when it comes to technology and machinery, has he? It will probably be ludicrous if he just manages to invent this amazing new Rider anyway... But you know what, the narrative of him surpassing his grandfather and old company is good enough that I'll let that slide.

Trivia. Takahashi Fumiya has fear of heights based on this link from Kamen Rider official summary. I have to admit I do fear of heights, especially when standing on a glass floor where there is something dangerous underneath or you are literally about 20 meters above ground.

I lol'd @ Ark in the beggining, with arms crossed impatiently waiting for henshin or whatever.

Gai from now on will just act as the sidekick? oh well.

What? No it hasn't. Its only thing is extinction. Horobi did it better.

It looks like Takahashi can only turn his human antagonists into massive memes when they switch sides. Everything about Gai is bootleg Kuroto.

So I'm curious. Who's going to get a transformation first, Satellite Zea (Ark got one so why not), or the Dog? I was honestly expecting the Dog to do something while it was freaking out as Aruto transformed.

I guess that explains the slowest fall ever

If I didn't learned that fact, I would have said the ark can somehow manipulate gravity for dramatic effect or something

Or it was the rookie director making a bad choice.

it was a slow fall for dramatic effect. What is so odd about it? This can't be the first time any of you have seen such a thing in a show or movie.
