Looks like one of the commanders is making an appearance? Nice kicking. I wonder who the stunt actor is, it reminds me of Mark Musashi's work.

The invisible monster is pretty cool. I was having a hard time with an invisible monster earlier in Monster Hunter, so that resonated with me. It's just a cool effect in general to see people flung around by invisible hands.

Utahoshi and his timely dizzy spells. I wonder what kind of Rider he would be considering his cold, logical personality.

Nice pink shirt, Gen.

I love the theme song that plays when Utahoshi comes in. The way he swayed as he saunters in, it's really fitting with his smug personality.

Hmmm, so this is Queen Festival 2011. So the events that happened in the show's prologue happened in 1994? What's significant about that year besides it being a convenient age for our protagonists?

I can never tell what the goth girl is thinking. But it's pretty fun to see her enjoying Yuuki's performance? What is it? Schande freude? What are you savoring?! Oh wait, she looked disappointed when she left. Maybe she's a good person after all?

Man, everyone in this show is super skinny.

Hmmm, is there a chameleon constellation?

Looks like a swing-by is an actual thing:

1994 was when the last Rider movies (J and KR World) aired before Kuuga revived the TV series in 2000.
(That said, I'm not sure if it's just pure coincidence.)

And there is a chamaeleon constellation. Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamaeleon

I think I pretty much figured out who the Chameleon Zodiarts is and the video at the end of the episode wasn't done by the Chameleon Zodiarts. I think my favorite moment of the episode is when the Scorpio Zodiarts just walk away from Fourze after it failed using the Hopper Switch properly. Now let's just wait for the Rider Rocket Drill Space Kick.

Though I laughed when Miu got her just deserts. As the old saying goes, "What goes around comes around". I also liked how Scorpio Zodiart walked off near the end of the battle while the Hopping Switch did the work, like a boss

I watch Fourze for the plot.

The swimsuits are a nice bonus though.

Yup, it's the EXACT same pool. Guess Japan has a shortage of pool right now.

*I accidentally watched the big head Rider's episode when someone blogged about the hotties of the series. That place is definitely familiar.

Oh no, the attractive stuck up Queen Bee of the school who refers to others as trash is a cruel woman who spits on the gifts given to her by her bizarrely large group of fans?

Also, wow Gentarou... Really? 'Here, go into an inclosed space and trying out this hoping switch.' 'Sure what could go wrong?' ... Though the Scorpio fight was nice.

After 3 episodes I've come to the conclusion that I don't like Fourze's transformation sequence. Unlike the cool zip-up effect of Double or the orbiting OOOs medals, Fourze is almost entirely hidden. Smoke, light, and then tada there's Fourze.

I liked him tagging 'Rider' before the rest of his limit break. Guess he really embraces the title.

I am confused as to why the Scorpio Zodiarts left him though. And to how s/he got there so quickly. Will agree that it was some pretty sweet stunt acting on the suit actors part though.

In our galaxy....you can't trust everyone that you meet!

This episode really threw me for a loop by not having rocketman dress in drag so as to win the coveted "queen" title and thereby become friends with someone he wanted to force into friendship via unreasonable-if-predictable gamble.

One nail, eh? Well played, JK Rowling. Pink be stylin', but you're not gonna overdo it in a school where even the lockers are pink.

A pogo stick, useless?! Have they not seen Scrooge McDuck out there on the moon?

...You're welcome, two people.

The appearance of Ghostwriter also threw me for a loop. Ghostwriter, what a trip...he's a ghost that writes to us! Ghostwriter.

...You're welcome, me.

...Of course there's a chameleon constellation. It just blends in with its background like those things tend to. It also helps that its a chameleon.

There's more to the change than that, but they're allowed to be practical when it comes to recurring effects for a weekly show that runs almost every single week year round. But if you're gonna compare it to someone...

I thought that pool looked familiar.

Anyway, I was really enjoying Miu getting exactly what she deserves.

"Your stock would go up"

I'm sorry but I don't understand this sentence, can someone please explain?

It's from when Gen & JK asked a student to join the Queenfest

I admit, looking at the commanders in the opening and during the first episode, you see those cloaks and might think they're supposed to be dark mage types or something. Nope, turns out they're basically just Sigma capes, to be worn and then thrown off dramatically when a fight starts.

...Now I want to see a .gif of Scorpio throwing his cloak off and posing, and then a lifebar fills up in the corner.
