What energy does Vail run on? Batteries?

Wow the heroes were totally beaten. Good thing the bad guys left. This is the worst trope of modern Rider D:

Sponsor glitch in our raw

It sucks that Daiji is just inheriting Hiromi's relationship with Akemi, which wasn't that much to begin with... I don't think these two characters have spoken more than two sentences to each other

Daiji's still bleeding through in the neck. Pretty sure that's bad

Oh no, the director saw through Daiji's transparently terrible plan

Oh no, those expensive jets. Rip Fenix, you were terrible

Wait, they left Daiji behind? Why?

Is everyone getting a chance at transforming?

Best part of the episode, Vice and Ikki's talk. Everything else I wasn't so into. No one has a plan or tries to predict anything. How do you root for the heroes if they can't think of a way to win?

Edit: Over Demons is just a kitbash of Vail and Demons?

I remember reading once that Demons wasn't originally planned and they just made it up to keep Hiromi's actor around doing stuff. not sure if that's true, but if it is, do you think NOT having had Demons this whole time would've led to Daiji having had Hiromi's scenes with Akemi, to give this better buildup?

for that matter, a LOT of Hiromi's stuff could've just as easily been given to Daiji without it changing too much in the grand scheme. Joined Fenix and had respect for the original commander? had friends from the Fenix academy, one of whom turned evil? had a bad habit of unnecessarily throwing himself into danger trying to live up to a dangerous standard he set for himself (in this case likely to prove he's as good as or better than Ikki)? had complications from transforming caused by the demon that allows the transformation to be possible (Kagerou body jacking him could cause problems instead of ail just siphoning off Hiromi's life force)? heck, for that matter, the whole "transforming is draining away your life" thing could be explained as the result of a contract between Daiji and Kagerou where, if Daiji'd had Hiromi's "I'll even throw away my life to save people" thing, that's the cost to use Kagerou's power, like how we're just recently learning Vice's contract with kid Ikki needing Ikki to forget having seen him or the fight with Vail back in the day is why using his power drains away Ikki's memories. I'm sure they'd have found another way to bring Vail into all this, too, so the longer this goes on, the more superfluous Hiromi ultimately feels to the story.

preview spoiler:
Spoiler
Tamaki's getting a recolored Libera Driver? I'd heard a theory a couple months ago that Hanaguilera could get something like that and team up with Sakura. assuming they don't pull a fast one on us and have Tamaki fail to transform, only for Hanaguilera to get the belt, or have her get another one of her own, I honestly think her not getting to be a rider feels a bit disappointing. like, Tamaki getting to be a rider isn't terrible, but Weekend Boy getting a belt before either Tamaki or Hanaguilera felt unearned, so it makes Tamaki getting one like this feel weird to me. I'd have liked it better if Tamaki got to be Over Demons and Hanaguilera got this new belt.

You can't revive Aerith with Fenix down.

Hashimoto Jun seems to be having a blast chewing up all of the scenery as Director Akaishi. Pretending to be scared during the press conference was so campy.

I have to agree, Akashi's laughing was grating enough, but his acting on that podium was almost Amber Heard levels of bad. I have to wonder how many humans are going to look at his performance and decide he's literally just putting on a show.

Weekend is finally going above-ground... Why does it sound like they have their own version of FeniX complete with a skybase and troops we haven't seen? But what we see is likely all their is to the organisation.

The convo between Ikki and Vice was a mixed bag for me. I think the message in any normal society was a really good one, but I could see that being twisted in all sorts of bad ways if this show ever aired in the US. "Be yourself" is a really good message for anywhere else in the world, though, and I think the theme of "you can set your own course" that this show has been revolving around is an important one. Pretty much every "good guy" character in this show and Vail have chosen to change their destiny, while Vail himself and all the baddies have chosen to give in to their destinies (sadly, this seems to include Akemi at this point).

In many ways, they drew out last episode and this one, but there's only about 1 1/2 episodes' worth of actual material between the two. At the same time, I think it was the better choice to stretch them instead of squeezing them both into a single episode.

I can understand why Daiji was left behind (the rescue was rushed and he wasn't close to the others), and I'm curious to see what Akashi meant at the end. But I really do like the idea that Daiji losing his demon has left him unbalanced and that's why he's been so impulsive lately.

But the best part in this ep was undoubtedly the Sakura/Hana bits. Gently done, and the two actresses have such great chemistry that you really feel like they're an item in real life (they aren't). I know TOEI probably picked them primarily for their gravure work (because TOEI), but they really called it on the casting here.


All in all, this series isn't the greatest in KR history, but for a show aimed at both kids and adults, they've actually done a really good balancing act. There are a lot of topics for families to discuss after each episode (something I really miss in modern toku), pacing that makes it easier for kids to follow (or for parents to explain something without having to pause the show), but also plenty of things only adults should be picking up on. Add to that the Vail miniseries which is extremely good, if way too short, and it really puts the "family" back in a family-friendly show. Of course, that also means it's not for everyone since a lot of people would rather have the faster pacing of a teen or adult-oriented show, but I think this might just end up in my Top 10 KR shows if they don't screw it up at the last minute.
Fave | Least Fave Series so far
KR: AgitΩ or Zero-One | Drive
SS: unsure | Maskman
UM: Nexus | Ultra Q
Sentai: Akiballion: Battlemaids of Akihabara | Buddha Man
Other Toku: possibly Shinigami no Ballad | probably Sci-Rop
