CARDGAMES FIST FIGHTS ON MOTORCYCLES?
Before we get to the juicy part where I actually talk about Tiger & Bunny, I just thought I’d throw it out there that I’ve just passed 150 posts here at Metanorn. Kyokai reminded me on Twitter that I passed the milestone a couple of posts ago, heh. That’s what happens when you’re greedy and want to write about EVERY SERIES, EVERY SEASON and decide to blog 4 shows at once sometimes. Yeah, never doing that again. Let’s hope I survive until 200!
Kotetsu’s big plan to get all the Heroes to remember is to pose and act like his old self. Because no one could possibly attain the level of dorkiness Kotetsu achieves naturally. His dorkiness is unrivalled. Despite this undeniable evidence, they start attacking him and trying to arrest him. Everyone is evacuated from the building, except brave souls like Kaede who are on a mission.
Phase two of Kotetsu’s plan is to tell them things only he knows, such as when they shave and how they eat eggs. You know, the deep stuff. Only Blue Rose is convinced that he might be telling the truth, the other Heroes obediently obey Agnes screeching about capturing Kotetsu and how perfect their ratings are right now. I bet Agnes doesn’t even need to be brainwashed to go through with this. Just as they’re about to hand over a defeated Kotetsu to the authorities, Kaede triumphantly makes her appearance.
The one to marry Tiger shall be MEEEEE
She tells them her dad can’t be a killer, and accidentally activates her NEXT abilities out of desperation. All I can is screw you, Maverick, we got some motherfawking rainbows and shit up in here, and that means THINGS JUST GOT SERIOUS. In layman’s terms, she restored their memories. All the heroes return to normal and apologize to Kotetsu, who then introduces his cute little daughter to everyone.
Ohhhh no she diiiidn’t
Everything is going perfect until Barnaby appears and they realize that they have one more person to deal with. Kaede tries to undo the brainwashing, but end sup just floating. Sky High, being a closet pedophile, had to cop a feel and now Kaede is stuck with his wind powers. Having no way to convince an enraged, stubborn Barnaby; the other heroes let Kotetsu deal with him. He leads Barnaby away so he can try to refresh his memory of their wonderful time spent together.
First thing’s first, Kotetsu needs his suit back. He manages to swing into the building and get his power suit back, as well as locate his motorcycle. Thus begins a vicious motorcycle battle. Well, more like Barnaby viciously attacking Kotetsu as he tries to remind Barnaby of all the fun they had together. “Barnaby this is where we first met~” and “Barnaby, this is where you first held me like a princess~” Those type of purely heterosexual, bonding moments. Barnaby responds with the calmness of a sac of angry bees.
Let’s not forget about Shadow Kotetsu. Naturally, he goes after the other heroes. He’s terribly outnumbered, but he seems to think he can take them all on. DON’T GET KIDNAPPED, KAEDE. Back to Teega and Bonny, the battle is still raging on fiercely. They’ve decided to try and see who can do the coolest stunt after jumping off a bridge. EXTREEEMEEEE!! …To be continued.
WHY ARE WE NAAAKKEEEDDDD?!?!
You can’t fool us, giant Wild Tiger head, we know you’re a fake!
That awkward moment where Dragon Kid ends up being younger than Kaede
Someone out there ships it, and that someone terrifies me.
Insert your own caption! What could he be yelling? My personal favourites: “BULBAASAAUUR!” or “VAGINNAAA!”
End Thoughts: TAKE THAT, MAVERICK! I was so relieved when Kaede restored everyone’s memories. A weight was taken off of my shoulders, knowing that Kotetsu would no longer have to worry about his friends turning on him. I would like to give a round of applause to Kaede, the kid who saved her father and almost completely saved the day from Maverick’s plans. I would also like to take this time to dedicate a kick to the balls to Sky High. I love you, but you RUINED EVERYTHING GOOD IN THE WORLD. As soon as he touched her, I raised my arms in a “WHHHYYYY?” position, and gaped at the screen in derision. I guess things can’t be solved so simply. I really do wonder how Kotetsu will get Barnaby’s memories back. It took a LOT of convincing for him to remember who killed his parents (i.e. Maverick saying “I killed your parents”). Let’s hope this plan is better than his last.
The action in this episode was mostly of the CGI variety, which wasn’t really as exciting as the animated action in the previous episode. Something about the CGI seems slower, and more delayed – and action scenes should be fast-paced. Since they’re both still in suits, I’m expecting another CGI fest in the next episode. Meh. Just speed it up a notch and I’m sure the action will be finale-worthy. It’s not like the CGI ever looks derpy though, so that’s a plus. Except for Fire Emblem. His lips look like an inflatable raft.
That cliffhanger was quite painful. Not just because we have to wait a week to see what happens when they collide, but because it ended with the same finesse an episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! would. Oh god, the cheesiness. I wonder how the fight will pan out. Part of me hopes Lunatic gets involved again, as I don’t want him reduced to just a petty side character who provoked Barnaby that one time. :/ I’m also hoping Kaede kicks butt AGAIN against the fake Tiger. They revealed his identity, so it seems, so I guess we’ll find out it’s a robot or something in the next episode. Let’s see some killer Hero teamwork! Make yourself useful, Origami!
Preview: Goddamn you, preview that tells us nothing. Kotetsu and Barnaby fight while Maverick watches with a smug look on his mole-infested face.
Barnaby, why are you so so white for? THAT’S NOT HOW YOU DO A FIST BUMP.
