HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! SUBARASHI!!!!
Mitsuzane seems to be hallucinating that he can see Takatora, even though he knows he defeated him. Elsewhere, Ryoma returns to Zawame, and Kouta believes he may now be an ally against Mitsuzane and the Over Lords.
Mitchy soloing Jimber Lemon, Kachidoki, and Kiwami Arms w/ Lemon Energy Arms Baron without Redyue's help.
RIP Peco/Peko, you will be missed.
Plot armor, I swear to god.
What makes you think Peco is dead? No flowers on the Toei site, Saku Momose's blog suggests he is still filming the show and nothing about the scene indicates Peco died, just that he was injured/passed out
Kouta is still hoping that Micchi would come to his senses. But at this point, it not possible. Since these issues have boiling in Micchi long before the Overlords came along.Do keep in mind that the Genesis Driver is the perfected model of the Sengoku Driver. In the hands of a skilled (or insane) user, it's very much plausible that Zangetsu Shin can take on Kiwami Arms, just like how Duke took on Gaim and Knuckle without too much trouble. True that Kiwami Arms originates from the Forbidden Fruit, but it's used via the Sengoku Driver, a mere prototype and that's more or less a handicap that gives a Genesis user a fighting chance.
Next factor is Kota...my god...nigga held back so much even if he did go Kiwami with Baron as support, his hesitation just upped Micchy's chances for victory.
I will agree on one thing, Micchy's completely lost it.
It was Kouta's hesititation. Did you not see the perfect moment when Kouta had the DJ Gun lined up right in front of Mitsuzane's face? He could have ended his life right there, considering how much damage that thing does on slow DJ cannon mode. It's like getting a bazooka to the face. Freaking Kaito had to push Kouta out of the way because Kouta just stood there, frozen, with his shotgun hand cannon aimed.Two words: Plot. Armor.
There is like....noooo real reason at all Bitchy was able to withstand all that...ESPECIALLY against Kiwami and Baron together...unless it was Kouta's hesitation that dampened his full potential
There was that one set picture. Thing about that though is that it was a scene that didn't happen yet. Nobody get their hopes up yet, though, as this is in my folder of me being wrong. Interesting to note is that it was also during the mentioned "golden weapon."I kinda was hoping Takatora's Driver just fell off, but I guess he'll never be a Rider again unless he survived and somehow Kouta defeats Micchy and takes back the Genesis Driver, which will probably never happen.
Hey, if Leo Zodiart can survive like 50 encounters with Fourze and Meteor at their strongest forms, then why not Mitchy? :laugh:Okay, I call complete BS. I know being completely insane can increase your battle potential but... somehow blocking finishers from two powerful Riders? Yeah, no.
Because Micchy is his friend. He is not a corporate suit or a faceless goon or a guy in a labcoat like Zangetsu, Sid or Ryoma. He was part of Team Gaim for more than half the series whom Kouta and Mai trusted and considered one of their own. It would be ridiculous and out of character for Kouta to have him shoot Zangetsu in the face with the DJ Gun knowing full well who it was behind that mask.Why should Kouta be hesitating? To me this is kinda hurting Kouta's character development…
Kouta's determination has been since Kachidoki Arms was introduced was to prevent the mistake that he made in the beginning when he killed the Inves form of Yuuya and choose the lives of himself and Mai over that of Yuuya. The current situation essentially mirrors the one he was confronted with in the very beginning: facing a personal friend and member of Team Gaim driven out of his mind and bent on killing him, but he is forewarned this time.Starting from Jinba Lemon to getting Kiwami Arms Kouta developed determination/courage to move forward and to confront anything without hesitation to save the world.
One can only wonder how long it'll take before Kouta will snap. Probably never.Because Micchy is his friend. He is not a corporate suit or a faceless goon or a guy in a labcoat like Zangetsu, Sid or Ryoma. He was part of Team Gaim for more than half the series whom Kouta and Mai trusted and considered one of their own.
