KR Ex-Aid 40 released

Alt title - Parado probably lives

Last week's poll rating: 4.44 / 5 (27 votes)

Second alt title: Emu? More like emo, am I right?

I get it, it's a Parado redemption arc. But it didn't work for me. As an internal struggle, I didn't ever really feel like I understood what Parado was going through. Meanwhile, Emu stands on a roof and decides to teach Parado a lesson instead of fighting Chronos. All the while, he lets his coworkers fight the bad guy, allowing their drivers to get stolen.

It's fine if the plot is stupid and doesn't make sense if what you're watching is entertaining. But most of it was just Parado acting like a sad kid for about 19 minutes (this is based on the QC encode which includes commercials). I just can't buy it when the series tries to be hyper dramatic.

Did I miss something? Why's Emu so mad at Parado at this particular point in time, when they both have a common enemy that they should be fighting against?

Nice shot of Parado taking Emu's hand with the sun on top of it. Even when this series is unbearable to watch from a story perspective, they do have some good visuals.

The co-op fight against Chronos was cool, but it never really felt like Chronos was big enough a threat against Hyper Ex-Aid. Yeah, Paradox did most of the work, but couldn't Emu have beaten Chronos without Parado's help?

Huzzah for Chronos, the wish-fulfillment king. Apparently he can just go back in time to whenever it's most suitable for him? I have so many questions and concerns about this new development. Tread carefully with how you integrate time travel to your story.

Mr. CEO, you are just as stupid as Bobby Kotick. If you wanted the opposition gone, you could have conducted better Batman Gambits. Now suffer your impending doom, sir. Also, where's Tsukuru-san?! I hope he's still alive.

Kuroto-san, you're a genius, make another one.

Decent episode despite predictable premise.

I didn't like this episode. Overwhelmingly. It was all over the place from the start. Why didn't Emu just tell the others his plan? Even with Parado seemingly dead Cronut didn't give up the trophy and they didn't even address that. Parados redemption was shit like others have said. It didn't feel genuine at all and very forced. The only redeeming part of the whole thing was that the fights in the episode weren't shit for once and I enjoyed the use of the XX Gashat to get both of Para-DXs forms out and use Perfect Puzzles item manipulation to screw Cronut.

The ending was bullshit though. I mean now Cronut has some kind of time manipulation that allows him to skip a particular moment? Why bother making Ex-Aids final form invincible of Cronut never stands a chance, always runs away and now can apparently just ignore it was ever made? Shit like this really frustrates me about this series.

I'm curious if Toei picked the name "Emu" because it's a homonym of M because he is the Genius Gamer M but it also have a hidden pun for "You are Me and I am You" or rather "U Me" if you dumbed it down using the internet slang when you reading it backward. Or I'm overthinking about it lol.

the ost is a good product to have i think.

anyway about the episode, agree with all of you, it's kinda kill the mood with Parado redemption arc. and for chronos, somehow i never like him since his 1st appearance, i feel that his existence kinda made the series down a bit after all the hype of KR Chronicle.

Gamedeus, i dunno about this. and btw, it would be super shitty as well if in the future Chronos will also get redemption arc or co-op to beat gamedeus.


it's almost 80% of ex-aid, although it is MUCH MUCH MUCH BETTER than Ghost (& also drive in my opinion). but somehow the show never really goes into climax into the ending/last arc. Drive have more consistency for the stroy of Shinosuke+Kiriko, and Heart final arc/fight with Shinosuke also make him a likeable villain. for Ex-Aid, it seems like they kinda confused/unsure about how to make the ending/final arc

Not gonna say the episode was super profound or anything, but yeah I get Parado's redemption. Parado's life is literally living just to play games. If you until this point had no concept of death or morality and saw everything as just a game, then yeah you're not going to feel remorse "killing" players. Lacking apathy is what being a sociopath is all about. Then you suddenly realize that dying can be super scary and horrible, you're going to realize: "Oh god what have I done? I did some terrible things haven't I?" Cause now Parado's know what he did to those players, gave them a violent, painful end.

Of course in Ex-Aid, WE know that death is just a slap on the wrist, but do the victims have any knowledge of that?

I don't really see it. Mostly because in Japanese it'd be split into E-mu.

I thought a bit more about this episode. I think the main problem is they knew they wanted the big fight at the end, but didn't quite know what to do for the 90% of the episode before that point. So they just stretched out Parado's redemption to be as long as possible, even though there was only really like 5-10 minutes of actual good story there.

That's the thing I hate about Snipe and Brave, they never have anything going on when they're not the focus.

While I see and accept the points raised about Para's redemption arc i still overall enjoyed this episode, and during the fight i was trying to figure out where we would go after Chronos is defeated, wondering if Graphite would be the final boss or we would just end up ending short given the movie's plot (which i'll get too). Also I expected Chronos to be able to reset everything given, during his debut he stated he is also a walking lab experiment filled with the Bugster virus so the ending events made sense. Also
SpoilerShow
With the 'next time' trailer i have one question... What..or where the hell is the movie going to be placed? from what i've seen in trailers is the group looking in surprise at the big series bad showing up? I honestly thought he would have been left FOR the movie and not the series

Reminds me of a line in Power Rangers Operation Overdrive that one of the rangers said to the guy who apparantly has alot of money, a mansion, and the ability to make morphers and give them to the rangers to begin with...

"You are rich, buy an army"

So... how did Kuroto MacGuyver'd the first one? How did he even Digitized-Digimon his laptop to begin with? Oh man the plot holes you can open with just that one thought alone!

LMAO I'm sorry, the name Cronut is hilariously funny. You are awesome!

But humor aside I didn't feel too sorry for Parado because it took him this long , the death of a comrade, and a near death of himself to get him to understand the value of life. Granted I would have been ticked if he faked it though.

Is for the ending it was kind of.....douchey :/

On the upswing, the fighting was great though XD
