Who's the woman with Storious. Is that the real Luna?

Looks like Kenzan is about to lose his only friend

Man, this Desast/Kenzan fight would be so cool if they hadn't ruined their characters early on. It's really kind of tragic, since this good choreography is more exciting than Saber's CGI nonsense

A song??? But why? Who's singing???

He even says his stupid catchphrase as Desast dies. What a terrible waste of a cool fight scene with terrible character/story

They introduced fake Sophia just for her to get eaten immediately

There's that Assassin's Creek mansion

Oh, the song is Will save us and it's sung by Mei's actress. Neat!

Despite the problems with the actual story around it, I really dug the final duel between Desast and Kenzan. Is this the first time we heard Ren's full name?

I feel the same way, in paper this looks cool, in practice it gives me nothing. Ren and Desast have been background decoration at best, so I don't care what happens to them. The final scene was a nice touch, however that element of their relation was made the last episode so I don't think is particularly emotive; especially if we compare it to other seasons who did something similar.

Kento has the experience of his visions, but Touma has the power of being the main character so he finds Storius way easier. How many powers does Touma have?

Durandal has a point, that woman is not Sophia, Touma is making it a big deal when he has met her one minute before she got eaten.

Reika being jealous was incredibly funny, but in battle was not to my liking.

I prefer the Shindai siblings battle over Ren & Desast's, I think they used their powers in a way they complement each other nicely.

Akamichi Ren/Kamen Rider Kenzan. You're forgiven for forgetting his name though, it's not like they use it in the show that often and Ren does frankly fuckall

To be honest, I simply want this to be over now. At the start, it was interesting since they were using books to figure things out like the TV show Grimm that I used to watch. However, that plot device was swiftly dropped and was shifted into collecting the swords and the trinkets and then taking it back again that the current plot doesn't feel like it's about books anymore.

thanks, actually, outside of Touma ive forgotten most of the other riders names as riders. like, for real, i dont even recall Rintaro as a rider, Nagare? Blades? meh, im half glad i recall their regualr character names lol
EDIT:
now that im thinking about it, i think my issue is this: when they transform, the name of the book is said, and i might recall the name of the book, and then the riders name is said and i might recall that. like Kenzan is sarutbi ninja den, but fuck if i recalled anything else lol.

I feel really sorry for the kids who bought any of Espada's stuff cause he was only around for like 10 episodes before kicking it

kinda nice though that Espada is still strong enough to battle with Rintaro and Touma on even footing despite not being around.
speaking of Toys, the SH Figuarts figure of Caliber is like $230+ mean while Saber and Blades are like $50-ish.

That Asuka Kawazu was much better than what I had expected it to be. Guess I just had low expectations...

Yeah, I'm thrilled for the first Dino-themed KR too.

Seriously?

*facepalm*

Edit: And the thing is, Toei has only had one really good dino sentai: Kyouruuger. Ryusoulger was a mess, Abaranger was good (but not great), and ZyuRanger gets the distinction of having to follow Jetman.

A truer thing has never been spoke lol. Kyouryuuger is amazing tier. Abaranger was just fine. Ryusoulger was a blatant low effort year. And ZyuRanger gets overinflated in its importance because of Power Rangers. DragonRanger is cool and all, but the whole series would be completely forgotten if it weren't the first adaptation for Power Rangers.

I'm also excited for Revice, I know that for sentai dinosaurs are overused, but I have been waiting for a dino-themed rider ever since I saw PuToTyra.
