That's uncomfortably close. Also it's kind of dumb that doctor lady has been this guy's prisoner for like two episodes now

Wait, Akemi's been missing and Daiji hasn't called in the competent brother to get the problem handled? What? Ooh, there he is

Awww, the two guys with nothing to do seem bummed. I wonder why. I don't even know the name of Sakura's guy. Who's he fooling saying he's Sakura's bodyguard?

Wait. Why are Ikki and Daiji in the Weekend base now? That's not much of a plan, Daiji. /me makes a bet that by the end of the episode Weekend will contribute nothing

There's that name Hiromi again

Vice and Vail talking? It's almost like these two are characters. Anyway, I guess we're dealing with this now instead of the Akemi/Akaishi problem

I wonder if Toei even understand why people like Sakura and Hana. They're the only ones in this story that feel like they have stuff going on besides Rider shit. Meanwhile, Ikki, Daiji, and Vice are nothing but Rider shit (the soccer stuff doesn't count, Haruto)

Just in case the audience doesn't get it, Vail repeats the line 10 times. But... why?

Cool, they set a trap for the director, but the director catches them off guard... Oh and Daiji is taken out of the battle even though he was the only one trasnformed? What a shock

So is Akemi a villain now or just dead? Would probably care more if they did anything with Akemi's character or showed her making a decision. Instead we just see the result, which makes her more a plot device than a character

The writing in this show is so endlessly frustrating. They've known the director has been evil for like 10 episodes now. He's right there, go fuck him up. Instead it spins its wheels on non plots that don't go anywhere

this show and DonBrothers feel like they have the inverse problem of each other. DonBro feels like it's rushing for some reason to get to plot points they have planned down the line that we don't know yet when it could honestly stand to slow down a bit and give more time for each of the characters to do stuff, and Revice feels like its dragging its feet trying to do stuff with each of its characters, but it has so little to do that it could speed through a bunch of this and feel better for it.

Revice's pacing feels like it has the same issue I have when I try to write my own stuff. the BIG plot points are known already, and hints of ideas for the connective tissue exist, like (Ikki and Vice hang around the spa until something happens, Daiji and Karizaki chat at Fenix Base, Sakura and Hanaguilera do stuff together with the two guys in there somewhere because we don't actually hae anything for them to do beyond existing in the girls' orbit), but not enough to actually fill out the plot in a coherent way so they just reuse those scraps over and over and go "and now a MotW/Vail attacks" to avoid any scene running long enough to realize nothing is actually happening. it gives the impression they need to fill the full season's run time but don't have enough story to do so. we could've paused the plot for a few weeks to have a flashback arc to tell Dad and Vail's story rather than make it a web movie and we'd still be about as far along in the plot as we are now, but it'd feel like more had happened.

also, personal note: I like Sakura and Hanaguilera together. they work as both enemies-to-rivals-to-friends, and maybe I'm reading too much into it but I get hints of romantic feelings, kinda. because of that, even if I'm just projecting and/or Toei is hinting but doesn't go all the way with it and just keeps them friends, it's gonna be a massive bummer if we get to the end of the series and they go "and then Sakura and Hanaguilera hooked up with Weekend Boy and Tamaki respectively, the end."

You know Toei, they're gonna hint at stuff and then never go anywhere with it because it's a kid's show and they're gonna appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Indeed, seems so much blood for that taken out, where Ikki and Sakura is so clean, only George fainted

Besides that, I also notice that Holy Live transformation requires Daiji to run + jump?

Does the plot device feels like a repeating formula from Blade to you? The director is evil in these episodes while the story doesn’t go anywhere interesting.

The Deadman monsters are under used just like Ghost and Saber.

Would be interesting if it actually accounts to something in the end, but from what I noticed- they were hinting at something like this at first, but that has gradually faded away by now and now they're very likely to go with the friends route

They did the same thing in Faiz, where we had an obviously male-male attraction but they always stopped it just short. Thing is, I kind of like when that happens because it allows each viewer to have their own interpretation. Mind you, Sakura and Hana are obviously an item, but they're focusing on the friendship side because Aguilera spent most of her life being used, so it's rather heartwarming to see Sakura going on these little dates with her.

It's so different from Western shows where they have to shove it down your throat to the brink of making it XXX-rated. I like seeing two people having romantic feelings for one another where they actually BEHAVE like they have romantic feelings. It's such a breath of fresh air.
