Santa-chan in this episode [when Shotaro asks him where to find Jimmy- reminded me of an old italian movie. Look this youtube clip.

Weather was an easy guess.. I mean.. if any of you guys paused the video when the W memory was first see, you could clearly read weather =3

As for dopant.. i also guess this is the poem writer coz there is nobody else to suspect...

last but not least... How come nobody ever wonders how Santa-san doesn't end up toyless? or am I just overthinking how he is not apparently as poor as he looks?

Well, about the dopant being the street poet could make sense. They're both involved with words, in the end.

I wonder why they called that guitar player to do W-B-X. I mean the song is dominated by the bass and the guitar is almost a minor detail. The full song doesn't have an out of the ordinary guitar solo to justify it. They should've just used the woman or called a bass player. And those contact lenses look to unnatural on that woman.

Shota and Phil nailed the song. Q&E's song is boring.

The Dopant's power reminded me of Koichi's (from JoJo part 4) stand. A very creative ability. It has been a while since a W villain had a cool power like that. A good thing that they didn't do the obvious with its identity.

Saeko looks great as always, but Wakana was kinda silly in this episode. And she gave more fuel for the incest shippers. Dad is too soft with her.

I wish they had introduced the doc earlier, because then we would have a bigger surprise when we discevered he was W. Seeing a complete stranger being the new villain is anticlimatic.

For those that don't know, the OOniki last name for Ichirou's character was a joke, because he is called Aniki by the other toku/anison singers and the fans. I was hoping for an Ichiro song in W, since he showed up.

At least an episode that concerns Shota. I hope he can develop a little in this arc, but I guess it won't happen.

Terui's black clothes aren't as bad as the red ones, but that logo on his jacket... Who would take a policeman with clothes like that seriously?

It's been established since, like, the post on the front page and the first post in the topic that the guest starts were Kamiki Aya and TAKUYA, as well as a guy whose name escapes me.
And the W memory being Weather was established in episode 20. If you paused the video you could clearly read that it said "Weather", and if you didn't, somebody posted a screencap in the discussion topic. There didn't need to be any guessing involved.

Mizuki Ichirou. He also appears in Inazuma Spark as his own ancestor. Crazy shit

He's wearing the same jacket as on his wiki page, that's how you know he's real

If my scanning the page ability is correct, he's also a member of JAM Project :D

We all know that we love Wakana for her childishness that she will always have even if she's moving onto the organization

People were seriously still guessing what the "W memory" was?

Anyway...

I am so glad they didn't make the fangirl the dopant, because that would have been so freaking obvious. When she showed up on screen I was like "She did it". I like being wrong.

Queen and Elizabeth = still hawt

Shou and Ryuu working together = good times

HOLY SHIT THE DOCTOR IS THE WEATHER DOPANT! Really didn't see that coming.

W is really shaping up to be one of my favorite rider series. I like how they keep the subplots moving while keeping the cases bi-episodic.

He does the rapping sections of the lyrics as well.

Did anyone notice how Shoutarou's mask awkwardly fell off? I guess they didn't have enough time to have multiple takes to get it right.

The poet was a little creepy the way he interpreted both Akiko and Shoutarou so accurately.

I think, perhaps, AeonRanger is the kind of poster who puts in his 2-cents for the week, then wanders off to play in other forums without checking to see the other posts in the thread. >_>

Um, anyways, back on topic: I totally didn't notice that the doctor who treated Ms. Fangirl was The Doctor who met with Saeko and turned out to be W. O_o; I didn't even think about the possibility; I just sort of assumed that they were two separate doctors.

Is there only one hospital in Fuuto? Because the chances of Shouta and Akiko running into W at that time, especially in a city as large as Fuuto, must be fairly slim, right?

As for the suspect... I think you may be right! He is kinda suspicious and appeared out of nowhere...

I'm more wondering over the fact that Santa was suspiciously spotted with one of the corrupt police guys and Shotaro didn't seem to ask him over what they were going to do and Shotaro still seems to trust him...

Yeah, I think that was done on purpose so that Wakana could fangirl over Philip....

or it was an accident and they threw in that Wakana moment to make up for it (If that was true, it was brilliant)

Thank you TV-Nihon for the release

Small clinics for cases like Yukiho (the fangirl) fainting are quite common, and a lot cheaper than heading to a hospital. Not to mention, you get treatment faster (short of the doc having a long queue list, but that depends on the seasons). Heck, I go to one that's inside a Chinese market whenever I get sick (although the medicine is killer on the tongue).

I got a goosebump when I see the plate for the clinic. Then when the doc starts wearing hat and shows his usb, I am hoping that he will be one heck of a manipulator.

Gotta admit I was also kinda floored by the Dopant thing. One of my top-guesses was wrong. Although I do have one idea of who our culprit might be...

Also, despite Saeko certainly being attractive, I almost feel bad for our man with the W Memory. Wonder if he knows what happened to the last guy she was interested in? Then again it doesn't seem like he cares all that much. Dopant love seems kinda creepy to me for some reason.
