This episode would have probably been one of the best in the series if it were done a bit differently (perhaps as a two-parter). It had a very strong beginning, and it was wonderful seeing the entire team unified and acting fairly mature as opposed to arguing, but what kept pulling me away from the drama was that whenever Akari, Onari and his apprentices, the Makotos and Alain were all together they acted exactly the same. There was virtually no individuality to the characters, as each character cried, hoped, and even got over their sadness at the same times; unfortunately, this subtracted from the experience quite a bit. I also think they should have kept Takeru dead for a bit longer (if they can make everyone getting younger a two-parter, they really should be able to do that with a major character's death/revival). Truly fantastic premise, but perhaps it would've gone better with another director.

I suspect that's the new normal. More opportunities to sell toys. Along with the whole Team Kamen Rider aspect where by the middle of the season it's a 3-man team.
W had FangJoker, OOOs had two final forms, Fourze just had one powered up, Wizard had the Dragon Power Ups, Drive had Dead Heat and Forumla as his mid season powerups before Tridoron. So Boost, Grateful, and Mugen don't surprise me at all.

It wasn't quite so mechanical as in the past couple of years though. Once Drive and Ghost got newer forms, they basically used the new form all the time, often as a base form (Ghost Boost).

Fang, by comparison, was a special case form that was only pulled out a couple of times, OOO's final forms were rarely used for a number of reasons, etc.

Power creep in KR is a lot more straightforward these days.

They still had upgrades that were stronger than their main gimmick before their final upgrades.

Makoto and Alain are different to Takeru, neither of them were dead, instead they took an eyecon form to use in the human world. When that was destroyed, they then just used their normal bodies.
I was just wondering how the Specter eyecon became whole again such that Makoto could use it after he went back to his normal body.

That's shown up a few times throughout the season. As far as I know, there is no standalone "m" sound in Japanese, so the English sounds of "ga-m-ma" can't work, the closest being "ga-n-ma". That's what I'm assuming is going on with that.


In episode 1, Yurusen said something like, "You're already dead, you can't die again!" What a lying sack of s**t. Still my favorite character though. 8)

I gave it five stars because I was engaged with the story and could empathize with the Takeru Support Crew. Still..it was a bit strange, possibly rushed. Both Shibuya and Narita appeared to be smiling/laughing at the same time another character was crying, which took away from the mood. Normally I'd agree with the statements that this should have been two parts, they have got so much going on that stuff has got to start happening to get the end of the season going. Dragging this out could have been a huge waste of time, since the only purpose for this story was to produce the new Mugen form.

Huh? The Specter eyecon was never un-whole to begin with.

I think you guys are thinking that Specter's eyecon was the one that was destroyed when Makato sacrificed himself to save Alain but it wasn't. It was the eyecon that Makato transfer himself into like Alain did.

The Specter transformation Eyecon is a Ghost Eyecon. The eyecon that held Makoto's consciousness was a Ganma Eyecon. This is different from Takeru, whose consciousness is stuck in a Ghost Eyecon (the Ore Eyecon), because he is dead.

Anyway, I never noticed in Drive, but last year, they pretty much pulled a Fourze Cosmic, the powerup reviving the rider. History rhymes, so Ghost takes a few cues from Wizard, and the Rider returns from the loss of his power source with a surge of emotion that gives him access to a new form. Plus the names even line up.
Also, a bit of Decade's final chapter was thrown in by bringing the hero back via the memories he made.

This episode would have been good, had they not cheapening it by rushing it.

So I'm totally sick of the death of the main rider followed by the revival and final form. When they did it in Fourze it was fresh. Now it's kind of lame, considering this is like the 3rd time Takeru has died in series.

And the fact that the final form wasn't even shown was lame. Especially since it appears to have the ability to destroy the Gamamizers which seems like an important plot device.

And Fourze still did it best. Remember when Ryusei took on Aries by himself without any powers, only for Gentarou to return in the nick of time?
