Hot damn, that victory pose is utterly made of FABULOUS and WIN. I was totally expecting Takuto to finally lose, but guess it’s just not meant to be. Not to mention, giving him a mid-season tier upgrade as well. Also; STAR SWORD THROWING! SHIELD BITS/PILES! GIANT GLOWING STAR SWORDS! This week’s fight has to be the best of the show yet so far.
And I haven’t even mentioned about the crazily detailed 3D eyecandy of the seals in the Zero Time.
So I was right on the money when I said Marino was Mizuno’s First Phase. I didn’t expect myself to be so right about it though. Then again, with all the clues and the stuff going down in the, it’s gotta be the only way that makes sense. Can’t see any other way round that, buuuuuutttt
I didn’t expect that her first phase would still be available when her mark disappeared. Is there some special rule/exception of the Maiden’s or is it just Mizuno imagining the whole thing in her head? God damn it, Enokido! Solve one question, pop another one right the fuck up. щ(ﾟДﾟщ) щ(ﾟДﾟщ)
Takuto’s backstory also got revealed in flashbacks in this episode and it’s just about as interesting as watching paint dry. The only good bits came at the end of that annoyingly long flashback in the middle of a great fight was finally getting to see who’s Takuto’s grandfather is.
Sure is family resemblance there. ALSO LOL PURPLE HAIR. HOW BLATANTLY OBVIOUS. Well, at least Takuto did finally get to give his father a good ass-kicking. Even if he doesn’t realize it. I think.
Well, this wraps up the Mizuno/West Maiden phase of the story now and we’re (hopefully) going to the more serious parts. The rest of the Kiraboshi Vanishing Age Drivers are going to make their appearances and luckily enough, BOTH ARE FEMALES! Makes me almost wish Takuto is given a bigger handicap. I mean, he could just probably win them over with his First Phase PIMP (Pointlessly Irresistable Male Pheromones) powers.
