It is exactly as I said last week. Onari took over Alain because he felt he cannot help and needed other's ability to become useful, and put himself and everyone else in danger in the process.

I'm glad that Demia didn't end when they shattered the monolith, because that would be too easy for a scheme that ran for 30 something episodes.

Yayyyy Igor gets slapped again!

It's good that Demia didn't get stopped so easily and they can't stop it the same way they stopped the beta but what the everloving fuck are Freya and Frey doing there? Why was there a need to bring them in? All it does is make things more complicated!

Aaaaand no lines for Kanon this week. She really should fire her agent.

The subplot about Bills working for Igor felt pointless. The relationship of trust built between Bills and the heroes was never fully explored for the audience to care.

The references to a Silicon Valley product reveal were not subtle.

Aria is so much wasted potential.

First, I saw the episode available for download today, then I watched it today, then came here looking for the forum topic to see that the most recent post was...three days ago...and now I'm not sure if I'm a time traveler or not.

This has got to be the slowest-paced ending to a KR series I have ever seen. It's like they did the opposite of Drive by laying out big story stuff first, then taking 25 episodes to talk amongst themselves while showing off new forms, and we've now picked up story again...i think. The whole time I was wondering how different this episode would have been if Takeru remembered he is a ghost, went invisible, and simply walked into the server building and shut Demia down. We learned early that he can fly, go invisible, and phase through stuff, but he's apparently forgotten how!

Best gag in the series, bar none. The actor playing Igor sells it very, very well.

Freya and Frey? I feel like I've missed something here.

Actually it's worse than that. In this episode she's been reduced to a masseuse, giving Gramps of all people a shoulder massage. She's now a prop. :|

Which is a shame, because he actually works pretty well as a villain.

They're in the Rider Damashii web series and their actual purpose is pretty vague. I was assuming they were characters for that series only so having them pop up in the main storyline is a) bloody stupid and b) hideously confusing if you haven't seen the web series, which I assume is most children.

how many eps are left? and I can't really say anything, this is the first KR series I've watched in full. (seen bits and pieces of others, I do plan on watching as many as possible, at least the heisei era)

When was Takeru shown to be good with computers, though? It made sense that it was Akari doing it since it fit with her being a sciency tech person.

Show's running a full 50 this time, so, about 6.

But you don't need to be good with computers. In this case you just need to make all of the equipment blow up. :P

I want to like Ghost, I really really do...

And then they pull crap like this. >_<;;

They took a chance to make Onari useful and ruined it. The only thing enjoyable has become Igor getting slapped every few episoes. The plot appears just long enough to tease us, then vanishes again. Kanon gets even less attention than Sela. And worst of all, we didn't get to see Aria naked. :cry:

Seriously, how are they going to drag this out another 6 episodes when they can't hold a plot point for more than two episodes? Even the KS7-esque Demia project isn't holding my attention anymore. I'll see the show through to the end, but I think this will join Drive as a KR series I'll probably never rewatch even as a group (except the April Fool's episode... which is how this show SHOULD have gone).
Fave series so far
KR: *brain explodes*
SS: probably GoRanger or ToQGer
UM: Nexus
Other Toku: (undecided, possibly the Shinigami no Ballad live action)

Least fave so far
KR: Drive
SS: Maskman
UM: (like all so far)
Other Toku: (undecided)

I doubt they are gonna drag it out another 6 episodes cause they're doing an Ex-Aid crossover so I'll bet it's the same as the Drive/Ghost crossover where the main plot is resolved and it's like an epilogue for the last two episodes

As the series is winding down, I just have to say while it's not been my favorite so far, it's been quite enjoyable to watch. Ever since Wizard (for me, anyway) Toei has been right on the money, something I haven't been able to say about every series.

Just like I said also, it was the "I wanted to be smart, failed I wanted to be strong, failed" cliche, but the funny thing is, even they could not tell what onari is good for, he is as worthless as everybody thinks.

I really hope that in Ex-aid they make better support characters, I dont expect Kuuga, but something better than this would be a good.
