When I first saw Takaiwa Seiji, I was like "what the hell?" He's the main suit actor for Ghost. That's too much double duty he has to do along with switching outfits to play another character. Oh well, if this is just a little short appearance then that's cool because he deserves to show some acting chops. This show is getting serious now that we are into the 30's range of episodes. Also forgot that Takeru's dad is crucial to the main plot of the show. Lol.

Switching outfits is unlikely. They likely filmed every shot in his Ganma outfit back-to-back, then he jumped into the Ghost costume and did all that stuff.

Turning people to children, that seems very... sentai-ish.

I wonder if Kamen Rider shows can be categorized into different types? For example:

Type 1: Monsters have been created by a human organization. A human is given power similar to the monsters by the organization and is given the abilty to harness the power and transform into a hero.

Subtypes: The Organization can be
A) pure evil
B) good but in over their heads
C) good with corrupt elements
D) bad with some elements having a change of heart.

Type 2: Monsters have appeared that are controlled by a supernatural bad guy or group. The hero receives power to transform into a powered up form to fight the monsters by a rival supernatural person or group.

Subtypes: The monsters can be:

A) created by the bad guy
B) monsters of earth's nature
C) beings from somewhere else

For both types, there can be a further subtype: the hero's psyche can either be

i) compromised by the transformation
ii) unaffected by the transformation

Does this make any sense?

Yeah; generally when something like that happens I assume the writers are running out of ideas for the Paranormal Investigation Group (or whoever) to look into.

I'm not sure if I misremembered some details from previous episodes, but I thought we knew that Ryuu was part of the group working on the monolith well before he showed up (I personally found Sennin's involvement far more surprising). I think this episode was trying to apologize for how little Shibuya (and Narita) actually did previously; I don't recall either one carrying a conversation before, or even speaking any more than one line to Takeru or Akari (let alone Alain or either Fukami), but now we have troubles, conversations, backstory and more backstory from Shibuya's backstory. The mysterious prince from Shibuya's mother's memories feels like he'll turn up at some point in future episodes, though, and I didn't see Professor Igarashi's return coming at all. Jairo was fantastic, but I wish he'd had his own armor to make him a bit more unique (I also hope he retains his power level, as opposed to getting progressively weaker like with most other characters). The episode had quite a few neat twists and turns, but in the end it felt a bit too much like a filler desperate to make up for the lack of character growth so far. Hopefully, though, after this two or three-parther Shibuya and Narita will be treated a bit more like human beings as opposed to plot points.

I was thinking on that too but, Ghost's body didn't seem to change any (picture related) during the ending fight so, Ultima must be played by someone else. In the future, they'll most likely just never have Takeru transform while Jairo's in his civilian state.

It's gonna be tiring for Takaiwa though. Having to don the black costume for a commander and then having to change into suit acting for Ghost. I imagine they are trying to get a suitable replacement that can someday replace Takaiwa as the primary Rider's suit actor, since they are probably going to give another guy a shot of playing as the primary Rider.
I think Taikawa has been this busy since after Decade. Especially since they made many Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider story lines thereafter. When Drive met Ghost or Gaim met Drive, I've been wondering which one was Takaiwa. We just need more Mr Kamen Rider ... :mrgreen:

and last but not least ... ONORE, DIKEIDO! :lol:

I believe Takaiwa always does the current rider and they get either Eitoku or Watanabe Jun to play the previous rider (usually because the secondary rider hasn't been introduced at that point).

They previously had a suit actor play one of the riders (back in Hibiki where Ito Makoto played the character who was Kamen Rider Danki, but he was the suit actor for Hibiki).

Anyway, Takaiwa is used to constantly changing outfits. Neo-Heisei riders just love having multiple forms which is why the suits now are usually just some attachment to the main suit (the coats for Ghost). Saves the suit actors having to change the full suit every time (hence why Decade must have been a lot of work for Takaiwa).

That's just toku logic, stuff you just have to roll with. They're not gonna just stop everything and explain things like that.
I don't think it can be just answered by just toku logic, personally I think we need an explanation for that, but there are also other questions to answer, for example, where the hell have Makoto, Kanon, Alain and Javert been living? It could be easy to answer with "in the temple, obviously", but I'm referring when they were the enemies, for a show that focused too much in how the human body needs food and a place to live in order to survive, they never said how they've been surviving.

In past rider shows the explanation for this was mostly living in the comic relief/people involved in a mistery's house, where they had a job to pay food, gas, etc. I think a good explanation would be that Fumi-baa offered her house to Alain, and that's where he has been living, but I think a simple explanation like this one will never appear, speaking of, where did Javert go? It seems that he only appears when is needed, maybe the next time we'll see him will be fighting Jairo.
