Superhero Time: Teamwork can cure poultry phobia


Begone evil chickens!

Being afraid of chickens must be a great hassle, since it decreases one's chance to enjoy the various meals that can be made from this tasty poultry. Even if you happen to be a vegetarian, there comes a time when phobias need to be taken down. However, as long as you don't go through Hiromu's symptoms, there's a high chance that a person can live with this fear. 

All of this chicken talk is making me hungry, so I might have to search for a realm where society is suffering at the hands of an evil chicken organization. Sure, I could go to the grocery store, but making a meal out of an evil monstrosity could result in a stupendous banquet. 

After a good finger licking meal, let's walk off our meal with some Go-Busters and Kamen Rider Wizard.


Tokumei Sentai Go-Buster Episode 47

Transport Beetle Cage!

It seems that my bickering has accomplished something, because Go-Busters is focusing on an anti-poultry training montage -- just what the doctor ordered. I could have sworn that Hiromu's weakness came with his powers, since I assumed that his traumatic experience was the first time that he found out about his Achilles heel. Oh well, this must mean that his vaccine program is better than Ryuji and Yoko's. 

Silly enough, the segments with Hiromu overcoming his fears wasn't the only thing that made this episode better, since Enter steps up his game again. With a majority of the Messiah Cards destroyed, the role of the final card is revealed, and it was right medicine that Go-Busters needed. To an extent, it almost makes me feel bad for my random rant over the last few episodes. But don't think that you are off the hook yet, Go-Busters

If the series plays its cards right, the final segment has a chance of giving us some good drama and intense moments that will leave us in an emotional frozen state. As we wait until February, the final countdown is closing in. And for today's great moment, J's beetle cage is equipped with a transport system -- nifty! 


Kamen Rider Wizard Episode 19

Land Dragon Claws!

When you are trapped between two life changing decisions, the best choice is to go with the hidden choice. And it wasn't that hard for Kosuke, since he decided to keep the Gate away from Haruto and the creepy scuba diver Phantom.

Is it me, or did we get a contradiction with Kosuke's action towards the end? Earlier in the episode, he was surprised about how the Gate become Phantons, and somehow, he knew the prerequisites that are required to enter the Gate's Underworld. The only possible theory is that the show expects us to assume that the Chimera gave him the rundown on using the Engage Ring. 

There wasn't much progression here, except for the fact that Haruto has mastered all four dragon elements -- the Dragon Avatar awakens! Despite Land Dragon's ability to control gravity, I was a little disappointed that we didn't get a finisher as a followup attack. For a second I was hoping for Haruto to drag the Phantom across the ground, since Land Dragon's claws are similar to the ones that Kamen Rider Tiger from Kamen Rider Ryuki has. Instead, we get a shock wave claw attack that doesn't leave much of a lasting impression. 

Judging from episode 19's ending, there might be a cure for Kosuke's predicament after all, since Chimera resides inside of him. If Wizardragon uses his new found powers to overtake Haruto, then we can look forward to an Underworld battle where Beast helps Wizard retake his control. Thanks to the mystery behind Wiseman's real plan, Wizard is on the path of learning new spells again, so I'm hoping that the staff reaches out for the right spell book.
