The death of Fumi pretty much just acts as a catalyst to Aran's character development and is the event that ultimately turns him into a good guy. The new civilian clothing symbolizes his final decision to switch factions. Although I am going to miss that black suit with the shoulder cape.

I wondered the same thing. I just figured he either grabbed the takoyaki from another vendor / store or someone else out there had taken over Fumi's stand. Could be Kanon's new job, who knows.

A lot about the funeral scene was quite well done (although also a shame, as I really liked both her and Adonis); I think the report of her passing was the first time either Shibuya or Narita said anything particularly meaningful. It's a pretty neat twist that Deep Connect have gained the team's trust, and I thought the Yuki subplot also had a solid, well-done ending. Here are some other random notes:

-Anyone else thought the ghost hoodies started out confused which rider was theirs near the end? It'd be rather amusing if they picked the wrong ones.
-So that's why the more recent episodes stressed the "follow your heart" message so much; it turned into Necrom's catchphrase.
-The show's about ghosts, but all Fumi-baa got was "we still have her memories?" I know Ghost is technically a science-fiction show by now, but I think Takeru can afford to be a bit more ambiguous than all that.
-Oh, and I forgot: I'm not even sure how to react to Alain fighting while eating takoyaki, as I found it both touching and amusing.

Thiws was quite an amazing two-parter, although I lost it when Alain walked into the ambush eating takoyaki. But the death was beautifully done, and Alain's final wish really pulled together everything hi heart has been showing him since he first appeared. I'll bet his brother wasn't happy when he heard Alain's decision to turn the Ganma world into Earth 2 (no reference to a certain sci-fi series intended).

Best comeback of the month... and the second time I lost it in 15 minutes.
-The show's about ghosts, but all Fumi-baa got was "we still have her memories?" I know Ghost is technically a science-fiction show by now, but I think it can afford to be a bit more ambiguous than all that.
Well we can't have the Star Wars thing with Fumi-baa's ghost hanging around as Alain's Jedi mentor for 5 years and then buggering off right when a forgotten leader returns from the Outer Rim to rebuild the Ganma Empire. :lol:

Seriously, though, Takeru is still around because he's technically an eyecon (albeit bound externally to the Ghost eyecon), and may also be an indirect product of his father's research. All other ghosts at this point have all been eyecons, including Yuki's father. So in a sense, the ghosts in this series are all a product of spiritech. Had alain arrived in time, he may have bound her soul to an eyecon so she could stick around, but I doubt she'd want that.

In fiction, natural causes and being killed are usually two distinct kinds of death, and many kinds of reviving only work on people who died unnaturally.

I guess it's time for Alain to spread his wings and leave the nest with Fumi-baa passing on. Thank goodness he got back on his feet in one episode and didn't drag a pity party out over the course of a month. The little "ghost" at the end on the roof of the building was a nice touch, I thought.

Was Kanon's fainting really necessary?

STILL cannot get "Grapefruit!" out of my head from the April Fool's episode.

Really, really shocked that nobody mentioned Seiji Takaiwa being in the next episode. I'm interested to see if he fights Ghost :lol:

Not all Kamen Riders uses belt to transform...Kamen Rider DiEnd doesn't use belt to transform...he uses DiEnd Driver which is some form of a gun...

Good point; I'm also glad Fumi-baa didn't stick around as a ghost herself (that would've defeat the point of her death), and the show, being science-fiction, hasn't given any clear answers about techless life after death (which I think is a good thing). That said, given that Fumi-baa (one of the few named characters to not know much about ganma or ghosts) said that hearts don't die, I found it rather ironic that the ghost (even if he's an eyecon)'s response to death being the end was that at least memories of her were still around.

So would the Whistle, Tuning Fork, and wrist mounted strumming thing from Hibiki. (However, there are people who are uncomfortable calling Hibiki a Kamen Rider as well.)

Was a pretty good scene. At first I thought Alain got the box of Takoyaki, that Fumi-baa dropped, on the ground...but at the end he had gotten another fresh box...
Wonder where he is getting his fix of free Takoyaki since he literally has no money and has been given free meals by her kindness.
I also wonder how he bought the art supplies? Maybe Alain wrestles under a mask in DDT to get pocket money? Maybe Kanon has a stand set up by the entrance of the temple where she will call you "onee-chan" for 200 yen?

Well, a good explanation for Alain having money to buy things, would be that in both ganma world and Earth people like jewels, gold, silver etc. So him being the son of an important dude, he has access to some of those.

While I can't say for certain with the takoyaki (Fumi-baa probably taught him how to make them, so maybe he used her cart?), I'm almost certain he got the art supplies from Cubi's stuff. He was travelling pretty light when he left, after all, so it's likely most of his art supplies were left behind.

Same here, when I saw Alan holding the art materials I immediately thought that they were some stuff that Cubi had left behind. The Takoyaki, however, shall remain a mystery for now.

I'm really hoping they give Kanon something more meaningful to do. I mean I enjoyed watching her interaction with Makoto when she was still an eyecon, but now she's mostly just blending with the background.

Also, during the scene that Kanon hands over the civilian clothes Fumi-baa gave to Alan Makoto totally smiled in a 'I ship you two' kind of way.

Necrom get a permanent powerup from Takoyaki. Genius.
