This put a big smile on my face.
I was not expecting that when I watched the episode with the stream on Saturday night.
It was a really fun surprise, especially since we had all been joking about Fourze with the episode's set-up revolving around space and the focus on teamwork.
It was no surprise to me since the show already made a reference to OOO before, with a Japanese figure from the Shogunate era too.
Really, I'm willing to be Wizard will have a reference if they're going by order
Well let's be fair, Makoto has cut ties with Alan and the Ganma faction, is perfectly happy to work with Takeru, and....
...fuck that means that he's going to wind up being a pushover even before halfway through the show.
I miss Chase.....
If you know what I mean.
Me neither actually.
The episode where Takeru was trying to gain Nobunga's ghost was a straightforward adaption of OOO's summer movie done to the part they just copy and pasted a pinnical scene from it.
Why didn't I think of this yet? Makoto going "Showtime da"
I think he's talking about the reused footage from the OOO movie in the Nobunaga Eyecon plot, (Nobunaga also being the subject of another OOO movie.) The same episode also featured Ghost's green form duplicating itself.
They'll probably make a Double reference if they use the "OreSpecter" sound in the Driver and the two Rider's souls share one body. Or with Specter Necrom Soul, depending on how that works.
You think they'll actually reference the fact that Houdini was a skeptic of the supernatural and the reason he's so stubborn as an Eyecon is because he's sitting in there with is arms crossed going, "this is fucking bullshit, man..."
With the new angle of the jackets getting personalities it wouldn't surprise me.
Might as well just cut Takeru out of the show right now, these guys can totally take any Ganma.
Well it's pretty obvious that he takes his role as Takeru's guardian and mentor seriously, and cares a lot for his well-being. He's goofy, but I'd like to see that protective side shown more as shit gets deeper into the plot.
>standard Heisei up to Decade
wut? No W? OOO? Fourze? Etc...
>that Fourze reference
i still miss him ;_;
i don't like to watch old shows/seasons of shows.
it just makes me sad, i've sitting for over 2 years on Jetman, Sun Vulcan and Megaranger and i don't really intent on watching them... ever, i just have them there on my toku folder.
it could be 1 year man, buts 1 year its the past.
Fourze its four years in the past.
i cannot watch it, i get fucking depressed thinking about the things i missed or things that happened on that period of time.
I finally got around to watching all of Fourze back in September or so with a few friends and it was just the fucking best.
>Our faces during the finale
>and the movies
>and the whole show really
Makoto's like a pre-Decade secondary who went through the whole arc in five episodes that would have taken one of them twenty. I'm ultra happy that they went with having him become such a bro so quickly, they could have easily dragged that shit out for over half the show.
..Wow. So are we still supposed to believe that Akari is some kind of super-awesome genius girl after this episode? Because she's a fucking moron.
"What's this? I'm investigating a strange interference over satellites and phones that have been hospitalizing people who had their phones taken over by a mysterious sound and collapsed while using their phones. I'm even aware that it targets people THROUGH their phones, and what it sounds like. Guess I'll just put the phone to my ear when my own phone gets hit by the interference then - that sounds like the smart thing to do!"
But they pitch her as being one, is the problem, given that they make a deal of the fact that she attends a university, and invented gadgets and all that other jazz at the onset. And then she does shit like in this episode which is the behaviour of a bonafide retard.
You want to talk retarded, how about the guy who overheard Akari talking about what's going on with the phones, witnessed her fall victim to it, then immediately picked up her phone to see if anyone was still there, only to have it happen to him.
Him being the childhood friend also helped making him turn bro a lot easier, even if they hadn't really seen each other for ten years.
I can see one guy scanning the books, but why the hell is the other guy looking at the chemicals for
He already looks like a fag.
Is this the first time this trope is defied? Every other Rider I've watched just magically knows where danger will be, and most of them don't have sensors like Agito, Kiva or Blade.
Ghost would be so much better if it was like early Shaman King
Think about it, Takeru helping fellow ghosts with unfinished businesses before they become cursed with unbearable grudges. Some pass on to the afterlife, others decide to stay and help him, with Den-O antics possessing people left and right.
Wait, this is it? Seriously? He just repeats to the father that the dead son would want them to do the space thing and that reunites everyone Am I supposed to believe having an unknown outsider barge in and say the same thing his living son has been repeatedly saying would have a tremendous effect?
Do you think Takeru is losing his grip on reality? Like, he feels warping into a room and sneaking up on complete strangers is the normal thing to do. I mean his dad asks him how he got into the room in ep 14 and Takeru completely ignores him and just smiles. Does he even know hes dead anymore? Does he even remember what being alive was like?
>I mean, his overall arc isn't over
What is left for him?
Because to me his character was mostly about reviving Kanon which he already accomplished, what else is there? Hisrivalry with Alan?
Yeah, but they could have easily gone to episode 30 with Makoto still being a raging git. Instead he realized he fucked up, apologized, and started making amends by being genuinely helpful. It's nice to see.
Well yeah, you could see him kind of hesitating when Alan went after him this episode. His arc moving forward will probably involve him having to rationalize helping Takeru against his debt to the Ganma.
He still made a deal with the Ganma/Aran. He wants to help his friends, but at the same time he feels conflicted about whatever he had to do to get himself and Kanon out of Ganmaspace.
Makoto, Kanon and Aran would probably have their own plotline.
I wonder how the ganma came to view human souls as some kind of resource, maybe Makoto and Kanon had something to do with it.
The way Aran's brother answered his question about heroic eyecons make it look like they can only be used to revive ghosts back to life.
They did that for parts of Den-O and then stopped for some reason. There was an actual reason why but I can't remember what it was.
It looks pretty different to the rest of the Eyecons, I'm assuming it's some sort of artificial/man-made thing using Saonji's knowledge
But her face is pretty much Makoto's face.
Well, it's been stated that the reason the ganma wants heroic eyecons are for fighting, obviously Necrom was created to use the heroic eyecons.
I have no idea what are the Ore, Specter and Necrom eyecons are in relation to ganma eyecon and heroic eyecon, but I get the feeling that Ore was originally blank and acted as a soul catcher and trapped Takeru's soul in it when he died.
>I get the feeling that Ore was originally blank and acted as a soul catcher and trapped Takeru's soul in it when he died.
That's exactly what they showed.
As for Necrom, his eyecon looks more mechanical so it's probably magitech.
Spectre is the odd one out at the moment.
So now I'm getting the impression that the heroic souls are souls that couldn't pass on to the afterlife, haunt relics for centuries before either getting turned into hood ghosts sitting inside heroic eyecons or being some ganma power up.
That makes it sound a bit depressing.
I get the impression that they're people who became so awesome that they ceased to be purely physical beings, and since they exist in both the physical and spiritual worlds they can be used to bridge them.
Since eyecons are aware of their surrounding and they can talk, why didn't Edison say anything about what Aran did to it?
I'd like to know why Aran is pissed off when he met his brother, he hates his authority undermined by his Javel acting for his brother and having info withheld, or maybe he just hates his brother?
Wait, we're sure Makoto is 100% alive, right? From what we've heard so far I assume they had to do some pretty crazy stuff to survive in Ganma land. We still don't know why Kanon is an Eyecon and Makoto is a Rider though.
>I'd like to know why Aran is pissed off when he met his brother, he hates his authority undermined by his Javel acting for his brother and having info withheld, or maybe he just hates his brother?
Seems to be more about not being told what gathering the Eyecons would do. Also they keep mentioning something about "obtaining bodies" I think? he said something similar to Makoto a few eps back in regards to Kanon.
A bit of being undermined and having shit hidden from him, a bit of being talked down to for having what he feels is an ambitious and worthwhile plan for his people.
He's basically Enter with almost none of the charisma.
I mean, nobody can match Enter for charisma.
>They did that for parts of Den-O and then stopped for some reason. There was an actual reason why but I can't remember what it was.
It may have been a discomfort thing. Some people have a really hard time wearing contact lenses, and it's even worse for some of those colored ones that aren't intended to correct vision, because a lot of times they're not specifically fit to an individual's eye and can cause a lot of abrasion on the eye if you wear them too much.
Maybe the siblings were given eyecons when they were over there, you need to hold one to see them, right?Also, maybe if you get killed while having one makes you go into the eyecon.
