Back with Gen and the gang as the hot pot is ready and in it are some odd things. The food is shaped into planets...of course and Yuuki gets the foodroids in to act like butlers. Every planet has a special feature like Mars is full of hot spices. Even with these strange ingredients along with Tomoko's special ingredient, Goro has delight in eating this. Ryusei comes in then and Tomoko notices that something is off about him. Since Ryusei knows he cannot be Meteor anymore he has to get Gen to fight Kijima for him. Shun then asks more about Gen's parents and for their occupation Gen and Goro really didn't know. Gen though talks about how happy his parents were when Gen made new friends and he flashbacks to his father saying that friends will save him. Gen keeps talking more about friendship and wants to see everyone's real smile and he wants to see that from Ryusei. Ryu though stands up, says he doesn't understand friendship, and leaves. Now that Ryusei sees how naive Gen is he now will take matters in his own hands. He learned the hard way of not to make friends anymore ever since that day Jiro got hurt. Tomoko is quite sad to see Ryusei like that and leaves to find him.
Quick call Hibiki!
That is episode 27 and damn Kijima is probably the best villain so far in the series. He has only been around for so little yet he is doing a lot. He is acting on his own and gaining powers along with that. Also he is a very cocky character. He keeps joking during fights and it just builds more on his character on how he acts. He is also a very smart villain as he found out Meteor's identity. Now with Meteor there is one thing I have been wondering, why is Meteor supposed to keep his identity a secret? This was brought up since Ryusei's first episode and seeing how Tachibana forcefulness with this really makes me think more about it? Along I liked how Ryusei was trying to hide in the shadows from Tachibana before his secret is completely ruined. Now with Ryusei no longer able to be Meteor how will Tachibana counteract this? Now there are more questions also being made as he learn very little about Gen's parents. We all know that this will affect the series soon, but for now we are left to wonder. What was so great to see Gen's grandfather is how similar they act and gives t us the conclusion on where Gen got his personality from. Overall its a great episode as it really makes us wonder what can happen next, an A-. The only thing missing was more interaction with the other villains.
Next Time: A storm is coming!
