Alt title - Reset that reset

Last week's poll rating: 3.89 / 5 (27 votes)

So... if Dan's lives were reset, does that mean Brave's girl is alive again? I guess I don't understand what the difference is between game time and real time. Like how many actions got reversed, considering people are still aware of the dead timeline despite the reset?

Man, what a poor way to lampshade the fact that Graphite has no story motivation at all. His only purpose in life is to be an enemy for the good guys. I just hate how the story has taken a paint by numbers approach. You need to remove Graphite to make way for Gamedeus. But the actual implementation isn't fun. There's no sense of redemption for Snipe or revenge for Brave when they kill Graphite. Frankly, this entire story arc probably would have been over 10 episodes ago if the protagonists would just work together.

I'm also super sad that Nico's only participation in these things is to stand by while Taiga does the work, rushing in only to do the finisher. That's so terrible, what's the point? Either don't participate at all or be there the whole time.

At least we get some choice scenes of Dan freaking out.

Nice comedy between Emu, Kiriya and Kuroto while a lovely battle between Brave, Snipe VS Graphite.

Make sure to back up all the schematics for the 2nd Hyper Muteki Gashat, Kuroto-san. Even the best game designers back their stuff up on cloud or NAS storages.

Maxima, VR's over. AR is better.

4 for now.

So if everything was reset, doesn't this mean Lovelica is alive?

I think it was only reset back to when Hyper Muteki was invented

So that would mean that Cronut hadn't deleted Braves girlfriend yet, yes? But shouldn't that also mean that he wouldn't have given the heroes Lovelicas trophy because he didn't need to destroy Parado? I know, childrens show. But it's lazy as fuck. It's such a contrived reason to remove Muteki for a single episode (and Dan must be a shit programmer if it takes him that long to hack Muteki to make save states).

Honestly, the best part of the episode is just Dan, Emu and Kirya being being dumb. The Brave/Snipe vs Graphite thing didn't really do achieve anything. And he wasn't destroyed in stopped time, so he could just be revived, correct? Other Bugsters have been revived after their trophies were obtained.

I wonder if this true ending bullshit they are pushing with the movie is supposed to be some alternate timeline where Cronut doesn't rewind time. I don't know. It doesn't really make much sense any more.

First off loving Eu, Kuroto, & Kiriya's scenes together working on recreating Hyper Muteki while including a way to counter reset which reminds me of three college students trying to do their work at the last minute with Kuroto doing the work, Emu "sleeping" & Kiriya being the time guy

Second I like the Graphite vs Snipe & Brave fight except for the Nico bring in for a finisher which I think they don't have to use her considering that they were able to get Parad's two gashatrophies without her being around, including Bakusou Bike's gashatrophy with Hiro offscreen

with Cronus resetting everything, is Saki's backup there again stuck saying for Hiro to be the best doctor in the world on loop again?

Kamen Rider movies aren't usually canon to the story unless the writers do some kind of shitty writing to make the show connect to the movie.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate that it 17 lives just for Kuroto to finish Hyper Muteki? He didn't even die in like a cool way either it was all just because of heart attacks from working too hard

Saki is dead. She died before Chronicle and Graphite became whole as a result. The Saki that Masamune was tormenting Hiiro with was only a facsimile made from her last words. Thus, she could never come back no matter how things pan out.

I love the fact that the three stooges spent so much time trying to come up with such a simple solution. Classic overthinking at its best! And I also like how there really was a sense of closure to the events of 5 years ago. Graphite embraced who he was as a villain character and finally got his wish. Parado has embraced his protagonist role and Poppy has always held her player-support role. Their programming has influenced their personalities but not ruled them. So I feel this was well-played, with the chance of redemption and a willful death. I see a lot of similarity between the endings for Graphite and Heart, who was one of the few decent characters in Drive.

I'm rather surprised nobody's commented on the fate of Graphite's Bugvisor. There are interesting implications there...


And yeah, I love Nico, so this whole "you get to finish because he's too poweful for you/we got our revenge, you can get the trophy" crap was rather insulting. Let the poor girl do her own thing, already! Watching that recoil was rather funny, though...

I meant the Saki that's in the back up.

Presumably. But Johnny has the last original Bugvisor so they'd have to get it back from him.

It definitely feels like they're rushing the endgame, but I can't help but absolutely love this show. Kuroto the memelord really stole this ep.

The finale they gave Graphite wasn't totally the best thing ever, but I enjoyed the bit of character they gave him, and his final words to both the Riders and Bugsters. It was nice. Sucks it had to be Nico to deliver the final blow, I feel the rivalry between Graphite and Hiiro/Taiga had less of a closure because of it.

Really excited to see what's happening next week. Lazer (despite still being my favourite character) was very much brought back to life without reason and only to please the fans, so I'm looking forward to this final plot which seems to actually be relevant and can not simply be done with any other character, as most Bugster-Kiriya moments have been.

honestly 5 stars primarily because of Kuroto
watch ultraman ginga it's actually a really fantastic show
