This episode has the same improvement as the previous episode, but it is slightly better thanks to some great writing with the character Emoto. I have to admit I wasn't expecting Emoto to be a big character, heck I thought Tachibana was Kengo's father. It makes sense now how Emoto was doing all of this though. With Virgo's powers he easily teleported to the M-bus and helped Meteor. Also the M-bus is where other victims have been sent to as they are in a state of sleep. Emoto really was strong, but he was conflicted between what he did in the past for power. This was his way for trying to redeem himself and that was to stop Gamou so he gave Kengo the gate switch so that Fourze could be discovered and made Meteor to help in the battle. I really love knowing that Emoto knew a lot of things and did try to tell Kengo everything. What made him more strong was how he tried to push Gen further. Then there was him learning the information he needed all of this time. Emoto was a really big plot point character, he did a lot, and having a strong character overall will make him very memorable. Heck even Gamou was sad to know that Emoto is dead.
Continuing on the drama point of this episode was how the others were acting. They have been fighting for a long time so it makes sense how they feel right now. Then seeing how they resolved their fears was a strong scene. Gen is always enjoyable as always because of how he can understand people. He is reminding me of Kuuga more often now. Gen keeps to himself and no matter what he won't change. He also can get to people's hearts and have them realize things they should have. Even Gen had to realize something and that was how bonds stay intact (reminding me of Persona now). He was separated from them on the battlefield, but that doesn't mean he could see them again. He is a very nice guy and only wants the best for everyone and after getting those doubts out of his heart he could finally achieve Cosmic by himself. So not only Emoto learned something, the others, and Gen have moved on and completed something that not many can do.
The action was on top thanks to more switches being used, having Virgo fight very seriously, and seeing Sagittarius. I love seeing the switches being used and this time we got some good combinations. First was the Board and Stealth switch. Board gave Gen flight and Stealth made him invisible and he tried to get Virgo that way. Also Magent States was used along with Launcer and Gatling to make an all out attack combo. Sadly those good thoughts were easily countered by Virgo. Virgo easily knew where Fourze was and he used a black hole to absorb the big attack. Then continuing with Virgo we saw a lot more from his fighting and boy was it good. Virgo has really strong abilities and it scares me to remember that Emoto said that there are two stronger ones than him. The whole training was really great and the directing of both the scenes from both episodes were near flawless. Then there was Sagittarius who is Gamou he is very deadly with his bow and I love the use of arrows as they can be more deadly than other weapons if the user is skilled. Gamou is very skilled and his has fast firing time, can fire multiple arrows, precision, and accuracy. These four things make him a very hard foe and I can't wait to see him in action more. Finally there was Emoto's last stand it was a basic fight overall, but seeing Leo and Libra not holding back on their past ally was hard to watch. Further more I know Horoscopes have fought each other before, but this was straight up murder this time. They didn't have a fancy way of doing it like how they thought the Dark Nebula was used. Sagittarius just straight up shot him and then Leo and Libra finished him off.
Overall this was a very serious episode and thanks to great action and drama it's a very memorable episode as I hope it progressed the series greatly. Emoto is probably my favorite character because of how a hidden star he was and soon shining incredibly. I give it an A+ for a well paced episode with a huge turning point. RIP Emoto
