KR Drive 25 released

I don't quite understand the reasoning in this episode. Isn't it that Shinnosuke wants to go public about Drive's identity? Why is he trying to make it a secret again with Gen-san and Kyuu-chan at the end. And I don't understand why Shinnosuke is upset that the media knows about it? And why is everyone surprised? He transformed in front of a whole bunch of people in front of the hospital. The whole world will knows about it even if the chief didn't leak it to the media.

And let's dismiss the times where Shinnosuke transformed in front of other citizens, Belt-san has been pretty firm about keeping the identity a secret. So why the sudden change of attitude? I mean, Mach is already keeping the dude busy. Couldn't the Shift Cars create a diversion while Shinnosuke runs off some place to transform?

And then they put in an super annoying character the First Division Chief, so the audience would agree that the reveal is necessary. So why try so hard to justify the reveal, then go to show they still wanted to keep it a secret. When he willing transformed in public, they can't keep it a secret anymore.

So I've been thinking, maybe Profession Banno (creator of Roidmude) isn't actually dead, or have survived in another way. You know, Roidmude can copy a human's skills and memory.

We haven't seen Drive's default finisher since episode 1.

There's a big splash of water on the ground when Drive arrested Taga, was Tridoron leaking of something.

That's the shortest preview ever. Go on, Chase. We all know where this is going.

Pretty interesting that this number plate changes when they go become speakers

That Drive transformation was great, with the way it circled around.

LOL. Kiriko's special ability is to see Chase when no one else can. Is this the power of... love?!

That's pretty cool that the guys who laughed at Gen came back in this episode to apologize. I also love seeing the chief and Kyuu playing with Rider masks on.

Random thought, why doesn't Drive have a patrol car form? That would have looked cool.

Tomari, pay attention, The core didn't break.

An episode of secrets revealed. Kyuu learns about Kiriko's secret. Everyone learns about Tomari's. The preview made it seem like the whole episode would be about Tomari dealing with that, but it only really happens at the end.

Another theme that is continuing. Last week we saw Go and Kiriko as kids. This week we see young Tomari with his dad.

So excited for the next episode.

Is it just me or whenever Drive uses his Formula form he never manages to destroy the Core

I've been waiting so long for Chase to become a Kamen Rider. Can't wait for next episode :)

Also, wasn't Rinna working on another belt or something? It was probably for Chase, since it's the same design as Mach's.

Despite my intense love for Shinnosuke I've kinda been watching for Chase too so I am so ready for him to get more screentime.

"oh, no! major plot developments! quick! everyone just stay quiet, don't move, and maybe they'll go away. we've been doing such a good job being average so far."

this was an ok episode. I like that we're getting to meet more of the first 9 roidmude, plus new wrinkles in the fight against them now that humans are getting more directly involved.

looking forward to next episode more than I have been in a while.

Perhaps I'm just in a forgiving mood this week, but I really liked this episode.

Things happened, things that mattered! There was inner conflict, plot progression, and Chase even did something useful for once. The whole buildup to the public seeing Drive transform was also nicely done from a style standpoint; it was very energetic.

No doubt this is going to be short lived, but with the series dragging on for so long this is a nice chance of pace.
I don't quite understand the reasoning in this episode. Isn't it that Shinnosuke wants to go public about Drive's identity? Why is he trying to make it a secret again with Gen-san and Kyuu-chan at the end. And I don't understand why Shinnosuke is upset that the media knows about it?
It's the difference between the burden of keeping secrets from your co-workers - people whose jobs are directly responsible for Drive being able to do his - and the burden of the public and the image of a superhero.
And let's dismiss the times where Shinnosuke transformed in front of other citizens, Belt-san has been pretty firm about keeping the identity a secret. So why the sudden change of attitude? I mean, Mach is already keeping the dude busy.
If by keeping busy you mean getting the stuffing beat out of him...

Edit: Also, why isn't this on the front page? The SD version isn't being seeded either

Oh, I was just exhausted earlier and told everyone that I'd update the page after a nap. The SD got unseeded because of the v2 for some reason.

Just a theory, but if Rinna can make a duplicate Mach Driver, she can probably make another Drive Driver as well. Retrieve the Proto Speed shift car from Heart and Kiriko might be able to become Proto-Drive. Sure, it's a weaker version of Drive, but Nadeshiko was basically a weaker version of Fourze, so...

I don't think there could be another Drive Driver since what makes the Driver unique is Krim's essence. Building another Mach Driver is easy since there's no AI in it.

You don't have to put an AI in it. It can just be am empty driver hence the name Proto-Drive.

I LOVED the transformation this time, I actually got goosebumps, but the whole thing with the Captain being in on it the whole time seemed kinda out of nowhere. A few weeks ago, when he threw the shift cars at the fake corpses that attacked he seemed genuinely surprised and calling them "Shinnosuke's toy cars" even if no one else was around. I mean if he knew everything, that would've been a good time to show some kind of foreshadowing... Guess that's just me nitpicking, but yeah :p
