Is Zox short or is Touma freakishly tall?

Wait was this supposed to air on Tanabata? It's like two weeks late...

That was fun! It's a bummer only Zox showed up, but maybe having the smaller scale is what made this work better?

No episode next week! Finally, a break!

They are probably saving the crossover of the main cast of Saber and Zenkaiger for the movie. I think Zox work better since he is definitely more antagonistic in nature unlike Kaito.

Also when the Saber crew initially couldn't find their books, shouldn't they be able to feel their books or even Mei be like "Your books are there, dumb dumbs!" Mei putting in the books for the Saber crew was funny.

They probably can't feel them either. The monster's ability affects their mind, so it tricks their senses

As a standalone episode I think it's a four, however compared to Zenkaiger's I think it's a three. The episode suffers of only having Zox and I don't know if it's just me but if I feel that Zox comes across as an idiot. I think than rather just having Zox saying he wants to steal things, maybe focus around his family a bit more. Those who don't watch Zenkaiger may get a bad impression from him.

The interactions between the Saber cast and Zox are ok, but it feels like they barely want to talk to each other, Zox does his thing while the others just watch.

Even if Mei didn't see the books. Why Zox never told them that? it would have made things so much easier.

Touma is really tall (1.85 m) and perspective doesn't help. In Zenkaiger he looks pretty average, however I was also astonished when I saw him next to Touma.

the episode had some great points. i enjoyed when the Riders clapped after watching Zox henshin, even questioning the dance, much like Jyuran did. (lol really everyone)
Touma being really intrigued to by Zox's story and being inspired when he had such writers block, was a nice touch too.
back to the henshin, also, Kento was easily the most impressed, i think its one of the few times we see him smile. maybe offering Zox his new book, Touma i mean, is a foreshadow to the movie? even if not important factoid.
but the cast having to deal with Zox, a serious cast, and Zox who is over the top and extra, its was such a nice clash.

This is kind of the episode structure that I think Saber should have aimed for, it brings to the spotlight Touma's profession as novelist and of the stories from the books themselves. I personally would have preferred this over the miscommunication and betrayal fest that was.

So... does this count as a full episode? Or is it just like those COVID specials of Zero-One from last year?

I was low-key hoping that Zenkaiger and Saber will be shown as existing in the same universe, but I had forgotten the fact that Zenkaiger is completely canon-destroying stuff. Sigh...

If you're asking if it's an in-canon episode, I'm saying doubtful. This one was marked as a special instead of episode 44, so it probably won't have anything to do with the story when we return next week. Unlike Zenkaiger which has it as episode 20 and will matter going forward
