I really liked this two-parter, which I felt shook the series up. I didn't think God Striker would be very interesting, but that was a pretty badass way to take down the enemy. I never would have imagined they'd sacrifice all the machines then go kamikaze into the heart of the beast

The Japanese comments I read were impressed the girls freed themselves. Very exciting episode all throughout

Yeah, Rei and Juri actually managed to break themselves out instead of waiting for R1 Max to save them. After they destroy the Omegaiumzukkin, I just kept thinking about the damage to Rescue Striker. Man it will be awhile before Rescue Force could do an actual rescue.

It's God Ginrai and his Fire Guts attack! Just kidding.

Great episode, though I didn't like...

...the final defeat of Maaru-tachi. I thought they deserved something better than that. Then again, they still did get that great episode early in the series.

Excellent end very satisfying, God Striker turned out well and i'm glad they didn't fall back on the giant robo idea for God Striker. I gotta feeling Neo Terror isn't done yet especially since Daen had a couple of back ups in place if he died, i'm sure their another arm of Neo Terror just waiting to strike.

I thought Maen would say "You stole that design from Daen-otousama! You Just added Saver!" xD
It was interesting they used turbo as the propellant, but shuldnt they have increased the output since it's the one thats powering god striker through?

Im betting Maen is still 'alive' since she's a super computer somewhere else.

To be honest I haven't been watching this series concurrently, just random episodes every now and then but I must say my interest has increased over time and now I feel I must watch all the episodes. This is a good series and I like some of the ideas (which I think are innovative although who knows, they might not be). I can't help thinking of it (in the imagined ranking system in my mind) placing it above the sentai genre and yet below Kamen Rider in terms of maturity and storytelling.

But I too was not pleased with the handling of the Three Executives' fates in this episode. It seemed...too simple. They were just sorta tossed and they exploded? I dunno. But I felt Maaen's defeat (if any of these defeats are final anyways) was well done with the God Striker.

I liked this ep. I was surprised to see machines being sacrificed to defeat the enemy.

Wonders who next new villain will be, that if they didn't escaped.

I liked the episode, and I liked how they even made a reference to how simplistic Hikaru's thinking was ("Four vehicles isn't enough, so use them all?"). Though he totally stole the idea from Dark Striker.

I was disappointed with the fate of the three commanders though. They could've done better than that. But who knows, maybe they'll come back again, they did last time.

There were plenty of great plot points in this episode. It's not often that Rescue Force has to retreat and regroup. The Earth Alliance planning to send a missile was a good plot twist. Kyousuke gracefully accepting that Hikaru has more potential as the next captain was handled well.
