Alt title - Our lord and savior Otoya has come to save us all

Last week's results: 4.87 / 5 (15 votes)

That was... a really good episode. Between Otoya's natural charisma and Ryuuga getting to step into the limelight, it just all felt really good.

Even Sento got to have some funny bits with him and Ryuuga back at base (Ryuuga literally does a few push ups after Sento tells him to go back to his exercises).

And the girls help out too! Before, I complained that it was kind of dumb when Ryuuga and Sento get defeated, because it was always Katsuragi who'd help them out at the end. Now we know he's a double agent/free agent, but still, it seemed really contrived to have your enemy help you like that. But when it's the girls who pitch in and save them, it's awesome!!

And how cute is it that we spend the episode thinking Otoya has this deep, secret past with Misora, only for it to be revealed that he's just a Miitan fan?

How amazing would this show be if sourpuss Sento were replaced with a lady?

There he is, Greased Lightning!! And he ran awesomely with two Rider Kicks!! Don't get distracted by Sandy/Misora now.

So the Sclash Driver is capable of turning the user into a Blood Knight, no, amplifying the capabilities shown from Gentoku and the other PMs... Hmm...
Spoiler
A nice excuse for Toei to give Eiji Akaso the time he may need to film his scenes for the Amazons movie is Ryuuga going through a temporary coma after hitting the Driver's breaking point. Build's production crew can just film Akaso as Ryuuga in bed.
Great episode. While admirable on Sento's part to stop Ryuuga from using the Sclash Driver too much, he'll have to research a means to counteract his new Driver's flaws.
Introducing Keisuke Watanabe to a notable voice actor of Freeza & a TTRPG player/actress is likely my crowning achievement in 2020.

I gotta admit, they really got me there with the Misora ruse. Here I'm thinking long-lost sister/girlfriend lol nope he's just a fanboy. I like that they subvert the trope there and it was honestly really well done.

This was probably one of the better episodes we've had so far. Everyone's playing their part and we see Master living it up as a true Chaotic Evil.

Grease is great. The fact he has a crazy Wakamoto driver seals the deal for me.

The plot point with Misora is great as well. With his memory loss, you get the feeling they are setting up something cliched, but him being a fan of her idol persona was great and funny to boot.

Another great episode.

I feel every character got their moment. Sento, Banjou, Misora, Sawa, Grease and his trio buddies, heck even glasses man who fell off the bridge got his quick moment.

The icing on top, our new enemy is a fanboy. lol

So Grease is a fan of Misora, I don't know why but I'm mixed on the whole thing. On the one hand it's funny to see him not attack the riders because of Misora, but on the other hand, because he's a fan of Misora just makes it hard for me to take him seriously during the moments he's probably going to be serious.

So the reason for Sento not letting Ryuga use the Sclash driver is because he doesn't want him to die that's fine but before the real reason I just want to punch him in the face. The facade of I don't want you stealing my spotlight is stupid since if that was the case, why even bother making Ryuga Cross-Z then? Just a personal nitpick on my end.

Now for Utsumi being back, I wonder where did the river take him when he was shot in the shoulder.

The twist with Grease fanboy was the best :lol:

By the way, the form with Smartphone and Wolf isn't called "SmaphoWolf"? I found this at the wiki:

Guess it's the same thing that happens with "Lock" and "KeyDragon"...

Sento says that the Sclash Driver has an effect on its users similar to Pandora's Box in that when they use it, they're overcome with battlelust to the point of craving nothing else. You can already see the effects with Grease. Cross-Z isn't the problem, the driver is

Sento claiming he wants the spotlight is just him being noble and sacrificing himself for Banjou.

Everytime I heard someone say "Grease", it made me want to watch that movie again. I thought Otoya was Misora's brother...BOY WAS I EVER WRONG xD.

One of John Toeis really cool made up words.

I wonder if the DX Sclashjellies have a warning on them reminding children not to try drinking them?

I was expecting Grease to explain his recognizing Misora by starting in with "it was twenty years ago" to reference the the duel time line in Kiva.

I did laugh out loud when the reveal was that he was a Miitan wota.

So, is Misora now going to be Build's Ankh? She did know to throw him a useful combination. It would be great to see Misora get pissed off and go "tch".

Count the bottles 1 2 and 3!!

Already this episode basically dumps Grease's catchphrases and finisher dialogue written for a future Kamen Rider fighting game all at once.

Agreed, honestly the whole Idol thing felt so under the Table by now, that it's actually refreshing that they fished it up again, and after you think some cliche is coming up, him being a Fan is just Hilarious xD
