KR Build 46 released

Alt title - The end of Build, the beginning of Zi-O?

Last week's results: 3.91 / 5 (11 votes)

Ah, poor Kazumin, you raised your own death flag. Ah well, at least there'll be less creepy Miitan stuff though.

What an emotional back and forth it was for him. At first, I'd given up on him ever getting an upgrade. Then, he gets the Blizzard thing and go "Oh yeah, since he got infused with more Nebula Gas, he can't use the power up, so this is a cop out answer to why he won't get a power up." And then he gets it, and it just means he'll probably die (unless he uses his manly will power to overcome death again?)

But how am I supposed to feel about Kazumin? He's a man stuck in a cycle. Besides the Miitan thing, yup, let's bring back the 3 crows. You can feel the writer scraping the bottom of the barrel for something for him to do. It's a disappointing and sort of unfair treatment for his character, who's genuinely likable and fun for the most part.

The barbecue scene looked freaking fun. I love all the summer tropes, despite it being a calm before the final battle. Miitan's hair was cute in that scene.

Is Build's ending going to lead directly into Zi-O? Combining parallel worlds to "defeat" Evolt seems like it'd be super destructive. Still, it's pretty bold and I give it points for that.

Eh. I can't tell if there's any new footage in this or if they just reedited the footage that they had for the first part. Either way, stop letting those old guys do the editing, I don't care about them!

The final plan to create a new world out of parallel worlds A and B can ruin any potential tearjerker events come the next episode or anything else up until that process is complete. All the casualties from the previous episodes will be reversed, and all the Rider projects erased to ensure that they'll never be dug up or studied about. I don't like this gameplan, but whatever, Build production crew.

Good, another P-Bandai item coming out later. Grease Lightning, at the very least, you'll go out on a bang.

Eh episode.
Don't be surprised if P-Bandai announced Demon King Zi-O's Ziku Driver as a exclusive.

Preview-related but, I thought this was a pretty clever fan vid.

At this point I'm terribly confused about the whole plan. Sento wants to merge two Earths, and yet somehow that won't result in one of the worlds dying or two of everything? And it conveniently gets rid of Evolt, Skywall, and Pandora's box? Parallel worlds is a fine (if convoluted) story mechanism when done right, but this feels like it goes too far and makes things happen "just because."

As for Kazumin, I've had him marked as a goner since day 1. So if indeed he is going to bite it, I can't say I'm surprised. And while I agree with Takenoko that he hasn't had much in the way of good material in the interim either, at least the fight in this episode was good. They made good use of wire-fu up until he had his mental breakdown.

The towel thing was really weird though. I mean we get plenty of weird Japanese things on this show, but that one scene honestly skeevied me out a bit...

Speaking of epic things, that entrance before the big fight was pretty epic. Getting that many extras together to run away while the riders walk forward, looked really good. Especially with the slow-mo and the heat distortion. That is how a hero walks into battle! (Of course then Evolt just killed untold thousands of people...)

And what the hell is Nanba doing back from the dead?! (Please don't be a Utsumi trap)

Finally, does anyone else get the impression that Toei's scheduling somehow went wrong here? The movie set before episode 46 doesn't premiere until a week after 46?

It was practically mandatory given what was coming later. None the less, as what's likely to be the last scene we get with everyone together and not in the process of getting their butts kicked, it was a tranquil scene.:)

LOL, logistics are hard. Maybe they had an unexpected week delay. Someone probably just screwed up though.

It feels like the kind of thing that'd double as the cast send off party. Hopefully that was the last thing they filmed since that'd be a cool way of ending it for the actors.

Right? Like I can totally see the rest of the crew coming in there and partying the moment the cameras were done rolling.

The ending is typical frustrating Build. Grease knows that the Crows are clones and wasn't struggling against them, but then was and now has to use his deadly upgrade. If he had to use it to beat Mad Rogue or some other established character I'd enjoy the tension a little more.

That aside, Grease Blizzard is sweet. Probably the best end stage kitbashed suit we've ever had, and Kazumin replying to the Build Drivers 'Are You Ready' was awesome. Hoping that if he does die, he goes out like a champ.

I hope that Builds ending wasn't retooled to tie into the next series.

Also, onore Golfgom for next week.

Poor Gentoku. They all rejected the t-shirts he made for them. And I like that the one intended for Kazumi actually said potato (ぽてと) on it.

You must be mistaken. Gentoku has never lost anything. Nobody would reject his t-shirts because that would count as losing.

has there BEEN an official teaser/trailer for Zi-O yet?

a little cheap in that they're postponing Grease's death for another ep. I was LMFAO at the BBQ scene, just when I think the comedy subplots can't get more absurd, they do.

wrap it up already, writers, you're making it cringeworthy soon.

PS, this is why we don't trust "official" translations:

Sadly they have since changed it to something less amusing

Look Luna, if the whole Gord Drive debacle didn't convince anyone that Bandai isn't always 100% correct and totally infallable, Kamen Rider Closes mugma knuckle fucking people won't.

I'm still saving this image for future shit posting though.
