The interactions between the characters were the usual things, but the comedy helped out with this. First I liked to see some of the happier sides of the teammate’s sure Hiro still acted the same, but Gori, Usada, Nick, and Ryuji were more cheerful. Then there was some comedy like with Nick getting lost even at an amusement park even though he had a map. With Usada he wanted to go on some rides, but instead Yoko fused fun and work together. She makes Usada go on rides to search for the enemy. Hiro even gave some criticism to the metaroid about his music. Along with that Hiro’s usual attitude does put down Yoko a little because he is putting working before fun and thinks the day off is over which saddens Yoko.
For the villains we see Messiah in a different way this time. He wants more enertron for the build of the new megazord and what I found surprising is that he seemed more calm than usual. He goes basaltic whenever he tells Enter what to do, but this time he just told him to “Shut up and work.” I liked this because Messiah for a while always acted like a baby, yes he is still complaining about getting things, but his attitude in this episode helps make his image look a little better. Of course when Enter makes his move with the Tubaroid it goes to where the Busters are. The metaroid for this episode is odd; he is made from a musical horn and leads a marching band of grunts. For some reason this makes me think of Ohranger since the series and it’s movie were strange at times. The oddest part of the monster is that his main weapon the tuba doesn’t seem to do anything and the same for the megazord, but just wait because Enter uses his tricky once more. Enter actually summons two metaroids this episode and thanks to his strategy he makes the first one hit the team with a sound wave and I guess the second one will probably do something with that.
Overall the episode is good, but this episode does end with a cliff hanger when the second roid appears before the team. My only problem with this is how this episode was paced. I mean it felt like the writers didn’t even try to make it a one parter. By that I mean things just go by too fast and any odd moment is just going left to be explained in the next episode which is not well. Kamen Rider series have been doing the two arc style for a while and things are mostly explained in the first part. The second part is meant to be the conclusion. So I give it a C+ it had some unique moments, but the pacing just kills it for me and I bet the second part will be much better (just like recent Fourze episodes).
