KR Saber 31 released

Last Week's rating: 3.83 /5 stars (12 votes)

Sub Title: The original trio is back

Nope, not even a shirtless Rintarou can make up for last week's behavior!

I like how Zoous threw in that back flip

Ooh. New outfit for Rin

While I liked this duel better than previous ones, it's still kind of silly how they got to that place. Having Mei thinking she'll die really underlines the urgency and time pressure

Damn Zoous, are you a monkey?

What's with the weird effect on Mei after she was saved? So weird

Mei's drawing of Slash is amazing

So this ended up to be a not too bad character story focusing on Rintarou, Mei, and Touma. I just wish they had made this one episode and cut out some of Rintarou's freaking out

If Sophia knew she was going to get kidnapped, why didn't she take the key back from Mei before she got turned into a monster? Such bad timing for everyone, especially since they show Mei meeting with Sophia at the Northern Base before that happened. Also, if it's that important, how about telling Mei what the key is for instead of just leaving the key and leaving to get kidnapped without telling anyone. Plot happening because characters act like idiots is the worst children's story trope
Preview spoilers
Wait, Rintarou is getting a power up in an episode after his big character moment?

Maybe it's just cause I made the GoT joke in the April Fool's ep but I'm getting serious incest vibes from Reika this episode.

So Master Logos is clearly evil and collaborating with the Megiddo aaaand he's keeping this secret from the Lanister twins because... they think he's good? I thought they knew he was trying to destroy the world though?

Rintaro seriously needs to see a therapist

Sophia Megiddo Spider Sense is tingling!

WTF is with Zoous doing all the flips this episode? Can the man not walk like a normal person? Does he have to parkour everywhere?

Can't have a moment with Mei after saving her life because ew girls but *can* have a homoerotic moment with Touma, glad to see Toei's priorities are in order.

How many ways can Sabela die? She can:
-Die killing Master Logos for her brother for some reason
-Get killed by her brother for failing to serve Master Logos

Hmmm, that's all I can think of. Make your bet now!

So out of curiosity, with the show progressed as far as it is, I wanted to ask: If it got better and is actually worth watching? This was the first rider series that I was checked out at the end of episode 1, so I never actually continued it. I even liked some of the series that others didn't. [Like I loved Build and enjoyed the first Arc of Ghost a fair bit]but there was something about the first episode of this I just.. did not enjoy. So again if it's actually worth watching I'll suffer through the slog.

Looks like the actress didn't draw them herself. Was wondering about that

Edit:
It's gotten better for sure. I think the high point was like a month ago? Then there was kind of a dip in quality and now it's okay/good again. So yeah... it's better, but I can't give you a hard recommendation to get back into it though

I guess I'll try anyhow, I really like the suit designs, I think it was the line about books are written for peoples dreams or happiness or something that made me kind of roll my eyes haha. I can always turn those types of lines or moments into a drinking game or something.

Thanks for the reply btw, I greatly appreciated it.

If you can watch until ep 15,16, the series would be better. The previous 15 eps is just toy promo with fast pacing. I like how Yuri / KR Saikou appear and feel the series more better from that time.

By the way, didn't you use "Viktor" before? Or did the name change from "ビクトール" to something else?

All these riders need therapy, but then it would be a super short series.

I will give this a 2 because I'm just tired of Rintaro whining for half of the series now. I know that they just want to inspire little kids to be brave, don't give up, etc but its just too much now. I was hoping his relationship with Mei was going to be more serious after this but looks like is not going anywhere. The next episode looks like its going to be a good one and "that" is finally happening.

Saber has been at it's best when the emotional aspect of the story outweighs the action and characters.

We get a solid reason as to why Rintarou acted the way he did and the logic behind it is sound. He's the man with the strongest sense of justice and faith, yet everything that he has placed that faith and love in was ripped from him time and time again. Faced with losing another person he cares for, it's understandable and relatable as to why he snapped the way he did in the previous episode.

I feel like the ability of the Neko Meggido wasn't resolved as well as it should have been. We see Mei seperate from the Meggido and it loses all of it's accessories, yet we never see the humans return to being human again. It just transitions into the Meggido taking Mei again. Another nitpick of mine was how when it wasn't involved in the fight, it was just randomly posing in the background.

I wonder how much longer until Kento gives up his idea of 'Sealing the sacred blades is the only way?' And can we get some more Ren/Disast scenes please? I want both of these characters to grow more because we've seen so little of them these days.

Next Episode
Spoiler
Called it a few episodes ago. Durandal was only introduced to serve as a reason for Rintarou to get a power-up.
