Superhero Time: Showtime vs Lunchtime


Which one deserves more priority?

Is it time to show off, or is it time to eat lunch? I for one am going with lunch, because destroying hunger should always be on the top of one's list. Then again, it is possible to eat in a fashion that makes lunchtime look showy and/or fabulous. 

When you are done with your decision making, let's take a look at the choices that were picked by Go-Busters and Kamen Rider Wizard. Your outlook will determine if they chose right or wrong. 


Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Episode 46

Where did J's lost stag beetle go?

Another week, another episode that lost its momentum -- oh well. Is it bad for me to say that they are desperately trying to fill up the 49/50/51 episode count at this point? We are almost close to witnessing the main finale, but we are still getting menial scenarios that are similar to ones that were done better during the show's first half. 

Ryuji getting on bad terms with Yoko for butting in on her future? Really? I thought that we have already dealt with the team's development already. Where's the big conflict? Why are thing not getting super intense? If these questions are not answered soon, things are going to fall apart in a matter of milliseconds. 

It's a good thing that I came in with very low expectations, because the twist behind Escape's return was not that bad. In fact, Enter's data that he acquired from Messiah might be the key ingredient in her return. Something tells me that this data is also the component that let him create a Metaroid out of a living creature.

In the past, we have seen people fall under the Vaglass's control, so this new predicament could result in the right spice to bring about the end of humanity. Unless if the desperation ruins things again -- it's time for crossing fingers! On a visual note, I loved how Ryuji's damaged helmet and suit showed us that there are wires and circuitry under the Go-Buster's leather suits. In a way, it shows the technical aspects put into their special suits. While this was a neat little feature, it won't raise my expectations for the next episode. For now, I can jump for joy, as I witness the trailer for Kyoryuger again.    


Kamen Rider Wizard Episode 18

Mysterious bubble bowing Phantom

It appears that my assumption of the ancient magical arts were correct, and the center of this power is within a chimera that was sealed inside of the belt -- $10.00 says that it's a Phantom, and that Beast's super form will involve a full chimera themed suit. Poor Kosuke, since he has entered a battle without understanding the Phantom's main goal. Deep inside, he must be depressed over the of giving up his dream on becoming an archaeologist.

Come to think of it, Kosuke and Haruto share some similarities. Both characters are overcoming an inner being, and they both exhibit the case of hiding behind an exterior personality. However, I still consider Kosuke's personality to be better than Haruto. Heck, my theory behind Haruto's determination to stick with plain sugar turned out to be stronger this week, since he was battling Kosuke's suggestion about putting mayo on his doughnut. 

On the other hand, Haruto is still a smarter person, due to Kosuke falling for Medusa's plan; thus giving Kosuke a deduction in his intelligence stat. Until he learns the real truth, I hope that this rivalry will  result in new Phantoms being born. However, I think that the next step will involve Kosuke feasting on the Phantoms that live inside the Gate's Underworld.

Land Dragon is about to awaken soon, because Koyomi has obtained a new stone from a mysterious new Phantom. There is a slight chance that he is Wiseman's human form, but we cannot deny the possibility of him being a new recurring general for Wiseman's forces. Wizard is making a major comeback now, and the OOO-like concerns of the main characters are stronger than ever.
