There was so much awesome in this week's release that clearly it couldn't be contained in a single post. :P

Maybe give her those forgotten Lv3 Gashats, Brave's Lv3 would certainly match with her Ride Player's unique design.
Considering how many similarities there have been to Rockman/Megaman thus far, I think we're already found out how she upgrades. In Rockman, when you defeat a boss, you gain their special weapon/attack. You then equip that weapon upgrade when you start a new level, and certain weapons have an advantage against certain bosses, requiring you to beat them in a specific order if you want to win with the least difficulty.

Now apply that to what we saw in this episode. Nico trashed the Bugster boss and gained a Gashat as a reward. But it's not a normal Gashat. Note how the data card is much shorter than on Taiga's copy. So using the Rockman logic, she now has the special weapon/upgrade from Bang Bang Shooting (likely some sort of cannon based on the Bugster's main attack this ep). She should theoretically be able to equip this upgrade, but can only use one upgrade at a time. As these special Gashats are unique and part of Chronicle, they'd be incompatible with the Gashat system the Riders use.

This aligns perfectly with the idea that only Nico can "kill" the boss Bugsters and may also explain why Emu isn't simply Game Sharking his way through all of this. The resurrected Bugsters are part of Chronicle and no longer connected to their original Gashats. Thus, only someone actually PLAYING Chronicle and using a Chronicle Gashat can successfully progress. The Riders can defeat a boss, but like Dracula, the defeated Bugster will just resurrect again.


It also explains why Poppy's job as a Rider is to prevent interference - she's actually functioning as a form of copy/cheat protection. Older games often required you to reference the manual to answer security questions, or they needed a serial number found on the floppy (and later, CD jewel case). Other games have code designed to catch attempts to cheat and block/ban the user. Browser games use this a lot, as did some of the old Telnet games. In the case of Chronicle, the riders are seen as an exploitable cheat left over from the game's development (testers often use special cheat codes to make it easier to test a game and they aren't always removed before the game's release). Poppy, being the game's guide AI, detects players using the "codes" (i.e. the Riders) and attempts to prevent the code from fully executing (ex. "kill them all" was an old nuke code that cleared a room, and Poppy causes an error when that code is entered so that the room isnt nuked).

Yeah, that last bit's a little hard to understand if you're young or haven't been involved in game design, but hopefully I explained it well enough...
Fave series so far

I really, REALLY hope they aren't setting up a romance between Taiga and Nico. He's 29 and she's barely 18. Please keep it a brother-sister relationship.

Is he 29? I couldn't figure out his age, but I was just guessing.

If Nico is able to use the trophies as upgrades, pretty neat. I'm ready for her to yank Magnum away from Snipe to use it, maybe even in Rifle mode, lol.
Then again, they could just be trophies; also Taiga beat Vernier and Emu/Hiiro defeated Salty and Aranbura, but no trophies appeared. So we'll see those three again, likely.
Continuing the stream of solid episodes. Around 5 to go before we hit final form and the insanity that'll ensue.

Huh. Interesting.

1) I guess Toei really will sell anything.

2) Yep, Take was right. It's dirty old man after all. :o
