Annotated Tokusatsu: Ressha Sentai ToQger episode 21

I love Fridays. Whenever this day arrives, I can’t help but to rejoice over the fact that the weekend has started. Even if I have to work during that time frame, there’s something refreshing about reaching the fif...

It’s time to go back to Kamen Rider Gaim’s main story, and things are about to get fierce again. Is there no more hope for our heroes to triumph over evil? Well, I guess there’s one option that Gaim’s main cast could use to win, but it’s not going to be pretty one.

While Kouta and the gang’ll get to achieve their main objective, they’ll have to deal with an inevitable betrayal before they get the chance to do their victory dance.

Check out Kamen Rider Drive's gadgets and four-wheeled vehicle

Man. What's with all of these heroes getting cars all of the sudden? First it was Ghost Rider, and now 2015's new Rider, Kamen Rider Drive, is following this trend. Are motorcycles going out of style? Whatever the case may be...

Don’t you hate it when a show releases a recap episode after impressing you with a solid segment? Well, Garo: Makai no Hana has fallen into this category, as we’re exposed to a chapter that almost wastes our time right when we were hoping for the show to follow up on Mayuri's development.

Luckily, there are a few redeeming qualities to this outcome. While these results aren't enough to restore our lost time, most viewers were given the chance to feel warm inside during Garo Season 4’s most recent episode.

Normally I don’t repeat a pun during my segments, but I couldn’t resist using another “orange” pun, since it’s relevant to ToQger’s 20th episode. That, and I guess this pun is sort of a last resort. I’m kidding.

Anyway, it’s time for us to find out if the show’s quality has gone up or down, as we catch up on my latest rambling about ToQger. Come to think of it, it’s been a while since I used that introduction.

Are you looking for a more exciting soccer match than the World Cup?  If so, then you’re in luck, my friend. It turns out Kamen Rider Gaim is taking a break from their main story to deliver the All Rider Cup, a soccer tournament where the fruit-based Riders are fighting to win the Golden Apple. Unlike your normal soccer game, you can look forward to special feats that professional players wish they could do.

From the looks of it, this episode’s meant to introduce us to the upcoming Kamen Rider Gaim movie’s setting, so we can rest assure that the main story remains unaffected.

Things are getting difficult for the After V again, as Pink has to deal with her comrades crying over their recent loss. Considering that they’re short on one member again, the team’s going to have to restructure their group around the new person who joins them.

At this rate, evil might have the upper hand against good-- unless if an uncontrollable situation takes over. In the meantime, the main thing that needs to be fixed is the depression that both sides are facing at the moment.

The ToQ 6 Saga's about to wrap up, and ToQger’s ready to unveil Akira’s signature machine. Since our rainbow-loving hero repairs railroads for a living, the man’s blessed with a train that suits his position. Who knows, we might get to see a robot that actually looks cool.

Unlike the typical sixth Ranger‘s Mecha’s debut episode, Akira decides to do something that’ll surprise the other ToQger. As long as sparks don’t fly, then everything should be good for Akira's little adjustments to his sweet new ride.

Holy moly! Did Kamen Rider Gaim just do what I think it did?

Since the show's plot has developed in a depressing way recently, I think we can all agree that there's no hope for anyone in this series. In fact, there’s no way in hell that Gaim will receive a happy ending, because we all know that Urobutchi doesn’t roll that way.

Whether it’s a bad or bittersweet ending, I’m certain that Gaim’s resolution will surprise and shock us when the curtains close. Hopefully, we won’t be too stressed out by the time the show’s story gets resolved.
