Not strictly him alone. Also it isn't really a competition, since he can time travel and declare it over whenever he wants. The whole thing's really more just an extended exercise in snake/manta/rhinoceros breeding...

This episode was pretty funny. The thought of Malshiina headlining every Sentai show is just mind bloggling and tiresome. But yeah, I think her explanations for her diabolical scheme actually makes sense. She keep getting pushed aside to make room for the new villains and she deserves better than that. Finally Luna makes herself to overcome this plot though and I thought she looked badass trying to fight without Akagi and Yumeria. But what was up with Akagi acting weird in the end and asking for Hakase to marry her when the battle is done? Lol...That was so out of the blue.

Yeah, he was a dick running the most complicated scam possible. What a jerk.

He sure did look snazzy in that trenchcoat, though I wish he'd've combed his damn hair once in a while. Maybe he didn't know? Can you see your own reflections when you are a reflection? Hmm.

He was performing the flags of defeat to power himself up

- talking about having a happy life after the battle ends
- using his comrades as shields
- tell the enemy to take something with them to the grave

Am I the only one that wanted the whole season to be like this episode?

I mean, the first season was over the top, self-aware, sometimes just stupid and it was good exactly for those reasons.
The whole idea of fighting against the rigid plot and the ending of the show itself was brilliant.
Take away the self-awareness and the self-parody theme and season 2 is what's left, an average spoof show.

I never liked overly long setups (even when big movies with big directors try to pull that, 99% of times they fail really hard) and this one consumed most likely the majority of the season.

If they realize that the meta-meta-show is more interesting than just the meta/spoof-show, why didn't they do that from the start?

Wow I just caught up and I must really say I loved this episode.

I love how Luna is just the heart of the group even though she doesn't realize anything that's going on...

But man the emotions THE EMOTIONS!!!

Oh by the way the Sailor Uranus costume was one of Yuuko's costumes from Season 1 where she had that fake phone call from (c)Na disguising as Tsukada Hideaki .

Hey there everybody,

been a lurker for a while, thought it was about time I posted. :)

Loved this episode. It's good to see the 4th wall being brought down again, even though it was not executed as well as in season 1 IMHO.

Was I the only one that got pumped up and excited (and then ultimately heartbroken) when Luna did the running Henshin like Akagi in S1 and failed?

(Side note: the spam bot question filter when I registered was a bunch of Kamen Rider names, and I've never seen a Rider series... lol I was terrified I would get it wrong)

I want an mp3 of Malshiina singing "Dolla" (the Bandora song)! It was the ending..
Violence is the best answer.
