At least they didn't do some post-CG job like they did for TOQ Rainbow for Mach Chaser.

Agree with everyone else on how cheap the Mach Chaser suit looks, but damn the Banno-bashing was the highlight of the episode for me. Everything else felt.... intermediate? I didn't feel the same intensity and hype that I felt when Gaim was this close to the finale. I like that Go was the one who beat Banno instead of Shinnosuke, but Sigma being the big bad is kinda boring. Can't bring myself to like or hate something that was just born. I mean it didn't even have a choice! It was programmed to destroy... poor Sigma :(

Strangely, I felt more for Chase's death in this episode than the last. Guess all that Go-realisation and Kiriko's crying and mourning got the impact kicking in. Medic's death is more like .... "eh?".... to me. I'm sad that she has to go but it didn't give me all the feels like Brain's did.

Seriously tho, whoever worked on the previews for the last few episodes did a crappy job. Giving away all the spoilers and what to expect from upcoming episodes. I would perhaps feel the impact from the deaths and so on had I not see them coming a week earlier.

I'm actually really excited to see Shinnosuke and Heart beat the crap out of each other next episode in true CROWS Zero fashion.

Really liked chase's fight, yeah the suit was very improvised, but the fight was good. on other stuff, i think that sigma should not be seen as the main bad guy, to me it is like those:
Villain: Behold as I awaken the ultimate weapon.
*good guys kill the villain*
Villain: it's too late! it is awake hahahahaha....*dies*(or sometimes it kills the bad guy itself)

so they got to fight an extremely powerful being that is on a rampage, that is more like a tool than a character per se.

Actually, you've got a great point there Phoenix. I imagine we would have definitely complained about that as well.

Dang. People are dropping like flies. Getting more and more emotional. The final episode will be epic.

To be fair, what happened between that made it all too satisfying.

Seeing how he's dragged down from the height of his so-called grandeur into a groveling fool begging for mercy. Go has none for him. Fuck you, Banno, you deserved it.

So once Go used Chase's Signal Bike, I was pretty excited. The resulting form has to be badass right? And it WAS badass....it just didn't look the part. I seriously didn't think they would be THAT lazy. Still...it served it's purpose. And like I said a few episodes back, Banno is one dimensional, but he's fucking batshit insane and that's all he needs. It was EXTREMELY satisfying to watch him get beat by the one person that he's been calling a failure all this time.

Medic's death was....meh. They probably needed something to piss Shinnosuke and Heart off, but it just seemed so.....blah. It looked like Sigma was charging up a blast to kill Shinnosuke and then Medic shows up and.....Sigma stops??

Speaking of Sigma, was anyone else thinking of Mega Man X a lil? Sigma....*sigh*. What is it with Kamen Rider and making the final boss a Space Flea from Nowhere? Okay it's not QUITE as often, but it's still kinda kills things when it happens.

Here's to hoping that Heart vs Drive is epic. They've been building it up almost all season.

Gotta agree. Would have been better if we hadn't been told "Chase DIES!".

You gotta give the kids an episode to let go of the character. It'd be too dramatic if a character died unexpectedly!

Game of Thrones + Kamen Rider?

If it had been me, who made the previews, the one in which chase dies would have been called Hero's requiem Go's goodbye (not sure if in japanese is the same that go was going to die, or that he was going to say goodbye to someone), and the preview would have been Banno lifting the axe to kill go, and then Machine chaser running towards. to give the idea that Go was going to die. i think it would be a good trolling.

No one is going to point out that Dead Heat Mach is literally Drive's chest piece on Mach's body with the spoiler placed upside down on the chin? Why is anyone surprised that the Mach/Chase combination would have a similar look?

Probably the best way to kill a bad guy, use a weapon who had a comedic gimmick to add some extremely dark humor in an execution.

Omega is very underwhelming.

I feel like Mach-Chaser was purposely half-assed in appearance because it wasn't really a final form but an unstable "just once" powerup.

I also am displeased the Chase was killed to further Go's manpain. (Can you fridge a mechanical lifeform? It sort of felt along those lines.) I do like that Go admitted that Chase's cardinal virtue was his kindness. I'm super disappointed he didn't get to ultimate evolve in a positive way. I really hope that actor pops up in something else I get to see. (The fruit snack bar owner from Gaim just showed up in the Death Note drama...)
