This episode was very powerful as things get explained. I am not a fan of how it's saved for this episode since next is the finale, but it works here. I was expecting Kengo just being connected to the Core Switch, but the show still surprised me. Kengo is a whole completely different being and he took form of a human since that is the job of the Core Child. I was not expecting the Presenter being a big part in the plot since he just seemed like a god like entity, but no it did a lot. It brought the Core Switch to the moon which soon leads to Gamou and Utahoshi to have their fight. So even though it took a while to finally learn everything the main twist is very good. It gives us a really good insight on Kengo and explains all of his issues. This also makes sense when Kengo doesn't get his spasms in some episodes since the Cosmic energy must come in small or big waves at times. So overall it did take a while to get to it, but I say it's worth it.Orchestra verison of Switch On which sounds really good. It has a big dynamic feel, but holds the sad tone that the scene had. All the characters were going through a tough time because Kengo was going to leave and seeing everyone like this was really good. Even some points to Ohsugi who jumped right onto Leo to defend his students. Overall that scene alone made this episode have the best drama because of the pure sadness and the actors did very well with it. Also don't get me started on Kengo's death and how they ended it there was really good. With the trailer for the finale had the sad music and had us see everyone completely destroyed to know Kengo is dead. That just made me cry I mean it. One thing that Fourze did really well was the drama and the characters as the friendship motif works the best here.
There was a nice little bit of action for this episode like Ryusei and Tatsugami fighting. They didn't transform at first and seeing their fist fly at each other was amazing. I love fights like this and I can tell the actual actors did do some of the stunts in the scene also another good amount of proof is that those shows usually have their actors do some real physical work. Tatsugami has a street like fighting style when Ryusei has martial arts so seeing these two fight like this was really good. The rest of the action wasn't must, but seeing a fight in the Rabbit Hutch was good.
Next Time: Will Gen go beyond defeating Gamou or will he forgive him?
