Life was so much easier when I just had to worry about the movie tie in references without being able to see the movie. Now look at all this extra homework I'm expected to do to understand shit.

I just watched the episode and couldn't believe what i have seen at 10:03. The writing in the notebook Igarashi gave Akari are german words for the most part of it. :shock: :lol:

KANON DID A THING! Okay, so she bought takoyaki nd then tie her shoe... wait, that's two things... KANON DID TWO THINGS!

I forget, did anything else happen this episode? -_-;;

On a side note, "takoyaki power" makes sense. Alain's despair was healed thanks to takoyaki, and he won his first big battle while eating takoyaki. So poor, sheltered Kanan - whose interest in Alain is FINALLY getting some attention again - figured that's the best food to boost morale and solve the "soldiers marching on an empty stomach" dilemma.

Can we be done with Ghost now and just give Aria a Magical Girl series so we can enjoy her henshi... I mean, so she can actually use her ability to henshin? (yeah, umm... that's what I meant.. honestly!)
Fave series so far

This is my first time actually keeping up with an entire Kamen Rider series, and will most likely finish it. Not counting Amazons, since that was a short spin-off series. Is it just me or is Kamen Rider Ghost the worst series ever? Again, I can't tell since this is the first time I've watched an entire series. Could the plots of the previous Neo-Heisei series have been worst than this?

Ghost is much worse than Wizard (which I actually liked) IMO. The side characters weren't nearly as annoying & useless as Onari & them, & Wizard at least had a coherent plot. Plus, if nothing else, Wizard had great insert songs. I think Wizard's main flaw was wasted potential, but I'd say that's even more so the case with Ghost.

As for this episode, I feel like it would have been kind of good if I cared about any of the characters at all. Or understood why anything was happening...

Indeed. At the rate things are going, in a few weeks we'll be arguing whether Ghost or Wizard is the worst post-Decade season.:|

Takeru never joined Adel in trying to kill off all of humanity because the villain asked him nicely, so that already puts it higher than Wizard for me.

Kabuto, Kiva, Ryuki, Faiz, Blade, Wizard... nah, a lot of other Rider shows beg to differ.

I was wondering recently if Ghost was a victim of bad math? You have 46 episodes and the arcs are in general two episodes each so you have 23 arcs. Suppose you have four arcs centered on the main character, one each for secondary characters (Akari, Onari, Makoto, Alain, Kanon, Javert, Aria, Adel, Takeru's father, Alain's father), and four episodes for movie tie ins, cross overs, and seasonal stuff. You have already blown through 18 arcs and have 5 arcs left for the development of the luminaries. So why have 15 luminaries?

As someone who actually enjoyed watching Wizard, I need to step up to its defense. Wizard was enjoyable to watch.
That said, I do think it is a bit short on rewatch value. There are simply not that many memorable moments between characters that draw you back to it, like in Kiva or W or Fourze or Gaim or Drive.

I object.

Haruto was not that sociopathic. He just was hopelessly naive to believe that Wiseman's ritual would only take his life, despite him having been a victim of the last Sabbath himself. When he found out that Fueki wanted to eliminate humanity, it was too late, he was already chained to his post.

SpoilerShow
It was that "hopeless naivety" that made it awful, though. Haruto should've been more suspicious of the whole thing or put up more resistance towards Fueki's plan. Also, didn't he do it because of Koyomi? That's an issue in itself since Makoto Okunaga (the actress) wasn't around long enough to make anything be effective. So, as-is, it all came off empty and it kinda makes him seem kinda selfish and/or pretty dumb.

So everyone is going to turn into Adel? What the hell has this plot become? I'm just counting this down because this show wasn't good.

Well Adel wants to make the perfect world. And in his mind he's the perfect being. So what's more perfect than a world full of copies of him?

When is Igor gonna realize no one gives a shit about him anymore?

Aside from Adel's mother and Takeru doing another disappearing act, this episode felt like filler and the next week's looks to be filler as well. Kinda just waiting for the next series at this point.
