I love Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. It’s one of those from top to bottom super good seasons. Episode 41 is like the culmination of where we finally thought we’d get too. It finally puts us into the end game pun intended of the series. A lot of things wrapped up after episode 39-40 threw us for some huge loops.
Let me start off by saying Dan Kuroto (Tetsuya Iwanaga) is my favorite character on the show. We’re talking about a prodigy and a mastermind genius turned savior of the show. Not only has he pushed most of the characters to the best of their own abilities, but he’s still upping his own game. The very game that was taken from him, he’s still making better from the sideline.
Episode 39 Masamune Kuroto’s father (Hiroyuki Takami) gains the reset ability stripping the characters of all the progress they made in defeating him. Emu loses Muteki and we think all is lost, right after Parado and Emu had joined forces. Putting Emu back into his Gamer M state of mind. I sat here at a loss for words, wondering where do we go, and how can they beat Chronos?? This guy can just reset each time.
Enter Dan Kuroto my man with all his antics. He and Emu are trying to update the Muteki to beat the reset of Chronos. I wasn’t sure what they could do and Kuroto felt the same after two classic game overs from overworking him-self. No worries we find out his continues have reset also, lol. Will Kuroto and Emu figure something out we don’t know.
Finally, I’d been waiting on this battle for a long time. Blade and Snipe finally get their revenge on Graphite; but not before Chronos tries to interfere. We find out Graphite just wanted to always fight and have battles. He was the only major Bugster that was setup for that type of game. Which is why I could understand his stance against joining Poppy and Parado.
So Chronos is going to stop everyone from summoning the boss of the game with reset. Oh, boy and at first it seemed like it worked, but then the Gashats continue into the sky. I go whoa what happened and then these Ex-Aid coins appear. I’m like what are those and everyone absorbs one. Muteki comes flying in and beats Chronos into a power-down. We find out my guy Kuroto Dan has inputted a SAVE FEATURE into Ex-Aid’s Muteki.
Now, we finally get to see the boss of this game that Kuroto made. Somebody he hasn’t even seen yet or imagined. I can understand as a game creator, which is all he really wanted. That he’s having the time of his life not only upping the ante of his game on the fly that he currently doesn’t have control. He’s also seeing his game develop further and further beyond his original imagination. Even though he’s a quasi-good guy right now he still has personal interests.
I know from the previews that Chronos is still going to be a thorn in their side and Gamedeus. I’ve also been wondering will Kuroto remain sided with Emu and the gang? At some point, will he switch sides again? I’m not sure, but if he did another flip I wouldn’t be surprised. Now that were in the final stage of the show, I wonder what will happen to Kuroto at the end of the show. I watched episode 41 twice just because of Kuroto’s antics. Lol, the show is so intriguing this has been one of the greater Kamen Rider series!!!
