KR Drive 38 Released

Post by Lunagel »

Wiki: http://wiki.tvnihon.com/wiki/Kamen_Rider_Drive_38

And the twist is... they're all Roidmude! Hahahaha! (okay the kid wasn't but whatever, he was still the red herring)

Pretty good episode, lot of plot development, lot of character evolution (in both senses of the word). I like that Medic ended up repenting but maybe could they have chosen a phrasing that wasn't so... subservient? idk, it just seems like we're kicking the female characters a lot recently, especially with the tantrum by the new Ninninger commander this week.

I like the little one-minute episode bonus, it's a good way to drum up excitement for the new movie without showing the same trailer 8762394238 times. I'd probably go see it if it wasn't a double-billing with Ninninger that I know is just going to be an excuse to have Takaharu prance around onscreen for 30 minutes.

Good stuff all around. Kind of funny that Drive turned around to be the interesting show of the week.

Surprised that Medic is getting redemption when I thought on previous ep "Man, she's really evil".......But considering it's Heart, he will definitely don't want to kill any of his comrade, regardless of how evil they are. After all, his view on himself is 'I don't view myself as evil'.

Nevertheless, I still don't understand how Heart managed to obtain Ultimate Evolution? He didn't really fight over the extent of his Heart, or get his emotional attachment amplified like Freeze or Brain.

A legitimate, tender moment between Heart and Medic? Alright, now I've seen everything. Not that I'm complaining, this just wasn't among the things I was expecting. It was well done, and episodes like this will help to solve the problem of the villains being poorly defined. It's not there yet, but it will help.

In the meantime we now know what the Promised Number is all about, and have a better idea of just what Heart wants to do.

Actually if anything the weak point in this episode was the fighting. Which is an odd thing to say when they're out in the quarry setting off explosives. It was a pretty lame transition from the city to the quarry, all things considered.:P

Meanwhile Bannopad continues to drop by to deus-ex everything. so we need an explanation of what's going on with him now more than ever.

Isn't it? After a lousy opening act, it's been fantastic. It's not Gaim, but Drive has turned out very well once it got over its hump (or I guess speed bump in this case). Which is fortunate, because if we had early Drive paired up with Ninninger, SuperHero Time would be rather dull.

Personally I'm laying odds that Medic will be the final boss. There's something about that smile towards the end, and the fact that she'll almost certainly be one of the last Ultimates.

It's a really blatant look, too. Give him a rock & roll T-shirt and he would be a dead-ringer. Whether this is a good thing or not, we'll see.

Watch again the previous episode, then you will get the answer.
Heart is a very interesting character, even though he is one of the baddies, he has a code of honor, he see Tomari Shinnosuke as a formidable opponent and does not want to take advantage of an unarmed foe; also he is appreciative of how Tomari has spared Medic when Mach were about to strike her.
overall great episode.

So... why did the young assistant chief stole the golden sauce last episode? And why did 090 defend him, he wasn't her fusion partner.

I thought the assistant was just messing around in the kitchen or maybe trying to steal the secret of the sauce so he could use it in his own cooking.

He wasn't surprised when he saw 090 last episode though, so he must have known the truth beforehand.

Go really knows how to destroy a mood. "I'm going to kill Medic even though she is just defeated mentally right now!"

As much as Go destroying the mood, roidmudes are just robots to him. Not to mention it's really a good idea to get rid of Medic in order to cripple the roidmudes' recovery.

Freeze pointed out that Heart's trigger is happiness. I suppose he couldn't feel any less happier with a rival like Tomari. Really liked how he handled Medic's wrongdoings.

That said, is that the first female roidmude after Medic? Most roidmudes are shown to be masculine even if their target is a female.

There is something realyy interesting about a Go going to obliterate crying helpless woman XD

I realyy enjoyed the last Toriko episode, i mean Drive <.<" ">.>.

While it would be realyy nice to see them destroy Medic, at least they showed it in a way that makes sense (cos somehow i was getting scared, of Tomari not letting them destroy crying female). Also, its realyy good to see them, keep making roimudes more then a simple villains. I dont know if we'll go as far as with Kiva, but it is always good to see that, especially with Medic redemption, cos she was getting a total bitch status in my book, and it was just shown realyy good. Her simple thinking bout spending time together with Heart, instead of something like standing at the top, while humans are being murdered. ALso, with that Brain might come back, since Medic learned to value her comrades.

But here's the thing, Heart said there can only be 4 promised numbers, and that there is 2 more...But what bout 001? Yeah he dead but he still evolved, so ther emgith be more evolved, but onyl 4 at the same time? Or does that activated some bs. And bring Brain, quickly! I was already uber happy when he didn't shared the fate of that Orphenoc that started so cold blooded, and at the end, was crying like a wuss.

I think it's more towards Fourze's villain way. You need a certain amount of collective to achieve the goals. Not all Zodiac's are in attendance, but the Switch is present. So I guess...

Spoiler
Just my theory, The Promised Number needs 4 ALIVE Super Evolution Roidmude at the same time to proceed. That's why Freeze isn't counted, since his Core is already destroyed and no fragment is left whatsoever

One thing that has made me enjoy Drive a lot since it started was Chris Peppler voicing Krim, I watch NHK world a lot which features Chris hosting one of the shows, so my jaw dropped at the ending reveal making a great episode even greater, this final arc is going to be interesting and so is the main movie
