I dunno, felt like a fan film to me. It's a little overly simple with the two halves being split in "here's the action" and "here's the narrative".

The action is fine, but it rings a little hollow seeing Takumi fight a character we don't know, and for unknown reasons.

I wish Utsumi was this interesting in the main show. He gets so little screen time in the main story.

So Utsumi has a high enough Hazard Level that he can turn into Hell Bros as well? Something about the way Starks hand lingered on his shoulder like he was measuring it makes me think that Utsumi may end up being more important than I initially thought.

To quote Luna's review of the first episode "Well, that was.... I don't really know."

A decent chunk of that was exposition relevant to the last couple of episodes that really should have been in the series proper. I get that these side series need to have some relevance to justify watching them, but the inverse of that is that I'm pretty much lost at times with the main series because important background information is withheld. Though what's not helping matters is that the series is incorporating the winter movie, seeing as how none of us have seen it.:|

The fight itself was pretty much just a toy advertisement. It had no meaning, it was just showing off forms. And the Whale finisher was pretty ridiculous, even by KR standards...

I did however like the BGM they used in the final scene with Barista Snake and Utsumi. It has just the right amount of edge to it for the scene.

I have to expect that he's going to be one of those characters who only finally becomes relevant in the second half of the series. They wouldn't have brought him back and done all of this if he was going to remain a background character. Though I think even before this episode, the mere fact that they brought him back was a pretty big hint that he was meant for more.

If that is the case, it's frustrating that they put all this seemingly plot important stuff into spin-off material.

it seems to be a recurring trend as of late. Toei really needs to stop that

Why would they do that? It allow them to sell fore DVDs if it's contents are related to the show.
