Last week's ratings: 3.75 of 5 stars (8 votes)

I guess I've never noticed that Sonoi wears shorts on top of his pants in his suit thing. Weird!

Pretty fun with the sentai group and the villains just meeting each other and interacting in human form

Nice, pink and black guy are getting along

What/ Why is Sonoi trying to save people? I'm very perplexed by his motivations

Wow, Sonoi and Momo dashing toward each other transformed only to show them as back to normal when they meet, pretty fun tease!

LOL, using hair to tie up the kidnapper. Just what is Miho's secret?

If Momo had the foresight to wreck Sonoi's bike, that'd be amazing

Nice block Sonoi

Now that's how you do an anniversary. /me sideeyes Zenkaiger and Revice

Got to admit, I resent the times when Momo uses his mini robo to fight the bad guys, since A) It sucks B) It's always how he confounds them in battle so he always uses it. I get it, they have to sell toys, but save that shit for the giant fight

Oh, Kiramager Gear. That makes sense

Oh shit Tsuyoshi. Ruthless! But kind of awesome?

Wow, that's a five star. I was engrossed in it the whole way through. You don't even really notice how little fighting it is, because the drama was that good. Inoue is at his best here. It's both a nice comeback for him, and also for toku to have a good writer behind it

Intriguing preview too!

Bonus:
Look at how weird and handsome the kidnapper is comapred to his portrayl in the ep:

What do you guys think is going on with Miho/Natsumi? Amnesia would give you a hit on the Inoue bingo card. It's kind of fun dramatic irony since the characters are so oblivious to it

Speaking of Inoue tropes, this episode is rich with characters not recognizing each other

Holy crap. What a great shot at the end with that smug grin. The ED song also putting in some really heavy work.

Bloody hell, Tsuyoshi's savage. Honestly the idea of a ranger who's quite happy to say "No, fuck you, you're dying now" is quite refreshing. Obviously Rider almost always has the person be turned back into a human, but yeah, it's actually kind of refreshing having the hero say "No, you're beyond saving".

I'm honestly kind of losing track of who knows who's identity now, between the villains and the Rangers. Cause I think Haruka's seen all of them, or has she not seen Sononi?
Spoiler
Surprised we're getting to see Kaito's henshin next week. The Zenkaiger Final Live Tour is still on so I figured Kiita would be busy to do much more than 1 line per episode.

Informal poll, which of you would let the dude die? Cause honestly, if someone kidnapped my wife, I'd totally be like "nope, you die now". Maybe I wouldn't kill him personally, but if he were hanging from a cliff, I wouldn't go help lift him up

Do you think there will be consequences for Tsuyoshi in later episodes?

Yeah I'd let the dude die, especially if he had gone after one of my loved ones. He's clearly way too far gone if he's kidnapping and threatening random women.

On the other hand, most of the MOTW's did horrible things once they were infected by the Horrors. While the art guy was probably a weirdo before he was infected I doubt if he was violent. So, Tsuyoshi kind of screwed up.

But, I can see this leading to a huge battle (in bad cgi) between Pink and Black over possession of the waifu, with the punchline being that if they look at her with the shades they would see that she was a shape shifting alien lizard humanoid (which is why she was able to subdue a guy possessed by Horrors).

Sononi is giving me a lot of vibes as a Garo villain.

From the moral standpoint I say let him live, be the better person. But who knows what I'd ACTUALLY do in his situation.

I can't see it having any impact on him later though. Maybe it'll affect his points. Or maybe when Miho finds out he's a Donbrother it'll come out and she'll give him shit for it.

Tarou knows: Haruka, Tsuyoshi, and (I think Shinichi).
Haruka knows: Tarou, Shinichi, Tsuyoshi (I don't think she remembers him), Sonoi, and Sonoza.
Shinichi knows: Tarou and Haruka.
Tsubasa doesn't know anyone.
Tsuyoshi knows Tarou.

I don't think the villains know any of the rangers.

Spoiler
As for the Zenkaiger tour issue, remember these episodes are filmed like a month in advance

I was gonna list all the series I've watched but there's a 255 character limit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Oh well.

Well, if they are ripping off Kamen Rider I would look to Build and cast suspicions on the barista.
