Superhero Time: Keeping the flames of justice alive


Burn baby burn!

There comes a time in one's life when we have to serve justice to those who are asking for it. Sometimes we wish that we weren't chosen for the job, but we have to accept our privileged duty. Despite the sacrifices that we make in the name of the law, the compensation can make up for the lost time. 

As our hearts burn bright, let's keep those flames going with some scorching action from the do-gooders of Go-Busters and Kamen Rider Wizard


Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Episode 36

Buddyroids on strike.

The Buddyroid union strike has given the Go-Busters some difficulty as they are locked out of using their Powered Custom form. If this protest doesn't come to an end, then there is no way that anyone will survive the new Messiah Metaroid's demolition madness. 

At this point, I have lost track of how many episodes I have seen in fiction where a character gets jealous over a new character. First we get the tantrum, then we get the conflict, and we wrap it up with the object of jealousy turning the whole thing around. In this case, Lioh was the object of jealousy, and the Buddyroids were the ones acting selfish. And yet, I can't stay mad at them, since the Buddyroids are all entertaining characters. While they are not on the same level as the Imagins from Kamen Rider Den-O, they still bring their own personality to Go-Buster's story. 

So how about that Go-Buster Lioh? Awesome, isn't it. Personally, I prefer the new combination over the others main ones, since the lion head on its chest reminds me of Gaogaigar. With all of the similarities to the anime present, I think that it's about time that we get a lion combination around these parts. 

Witnessing Escape's precious babies getting shattered sounds like a good way to have her go all out later on. I mean, who wouldn't get upset from having their most precious object get destroyed right in front of them. Just the feeling alone makes me want to tear apart those impudent fools that dare to mess with one's belongings. 


Kamen Rider Wizard Episode 9

Soma's inner conversations.

Phoenix is up to no good with his plan to bring Hiroki to despair by killing his parents. Little does Phoenix know, he is actually setting up for the creation of a new caped crusader. You think that killing parents bring despair to young children? No! All you are doing is creating a new breed of vigilantes that will take your life when you least expect it. Since we already have enough heroes with dead parents, Soma continues to bring out the good old hope. 

And adding to the awesome sauce on Soma's platter, the Wizardragon is voiced by Ryuzaburo Otomo, the voice of Sir Crocodile from One Piece. While most might have considered him as part of Wizard's powers, Wizard has hinted that the Wizardragon is in fact Soma's Phantom. From the conversation shown between the two, it's going to be interesting to see where their bond stands in the later episodes. 

If Flame Dragon style is similar to Kuuga's first upgrade, then there's a chance that we'll see him use the other elements with the Dragon Style later on. Though I still can't help but to compare the dragon design on Wizard's chest to Dragreder from Kamen Rider Ryuki. In fact, the first sequence of his finisher is almost similar to how Ryuki starts off his Final Vent. 

Every time I see the White Wizard, I can't help but to be suspicious of him with each passing moment. Just his reaction to Wizard's Flame Dragon Style signifies some sort of ulterior motive. I know that I keep picking on the guy during every other post, but I still think that there is a deep connection between him and Wiseman. 

With Wizard's new power being the hot new thing in town, I wonder if we will get to see Section Zero take action? Hopefully, it will happen soon, since they have been rather silent during these last few episodes.
