I thought this movie was a disaster. It's all the worst bits of Build compressed into an hour and it shows.
I don't get it. I like the characters. But any time drama has to happen it's the worst stuff I've seen, and the artifice of it shows. You know how Grease is just a Rider that exists to show up first, get beaten up, to be saved by Build? That's how all characters are like in this who aren't Banjou. They're fodder so the hero can be motivated to save the day. It's even worse when it's female characters because fridging is a thing.
If you still want to see my super negative reaction to it, click the spoiler:
I guess as a story this is okay, but man Build has some of the dumbest sci-fi. Banjou has Evolt genes. No wait he loses them. No wait, he changes his fucking DNA. No wait Evolt put a small part of him in Banjou. It's a fantasy story where there's no real rules, I get it. It's just dumb.
Burn to death in an alternate dimension? Your body gets restored, but it's still got burn marks. For reasons??? But not the face or arms. Cause the lady still has to be pretty.
Hate how Evolt is retconned into being a protagonist into this. None of the stuff related to the Blood Planet aliens make any sense.
A spider huh? Guess our Rider snake, bat, spider collection is complete.
God I hate this drama bullshit. Like anytime this show stops to try to tell a story it's the most tedious things. I like the characters, but not that has nothing to do with anything that comes from "main plot". It's just the worst story.
Poor Sawa, reduced to just being the driver for the main girl guest star.
Good thing Sento knew that Banjou would save her this time after putting her in danger in a battlefield... The worst.
Oh, wait, this is getting worse. Amazing! She's literally there to motivate/power up Banjou.
As terrible as this story is, at least we get to see Banjou's actor convulsion acting any time Evolt leaves his body.
Wait what? They're just letting Evolt go? He literally told you he'll be back. The whole point of bashing two worlds together was to prevent Evolt from happening since you literally can't beat him normally. He told you earlier that he killed your parents! Banjou, he's not your friend!
Oh great Yui likes him now.
Oooh, I was wondering if that was Shindo Gaku, but ultimately decided it didn't look like him. He's looking good!
