Now onto Kousuke who doesn't get too much, but I can tell in part two he will. He got some nice humorousness moments when he is with Nakamoto. I really enjoyed these scenes since both of the archeologists working together was a delight. Then Nakamoto was was focusing on the belt while Kousuke who was transformed tries to pose for some pictures. Kousuke really took a liking to the guy and you can tell since he had a drink with the guy, but sadly Nakamoto easily betrays that trust. Finally when Kousuke's belt is gone he still goes into action without it! He thinks Sora took it and so he tries to take it back. I have to keep giving credit to Tasuku Nagase as he does more and more out of suit action. I can really tell he is doing most of his stunts and even though it's not the biggest I always enjoy an actor doing all he or she can. Overall Kousuke did a good amount of greatness for this episode as he got nice scenes and keeps showing how much the actor does.
For the other Phantoms we get a fun time with Sora as he first fights Kousuke in his human form. Also I give credit to the scene when he comes when Kousuke's belt is gone. Sora acts like he knows where it is so making him look like the culprit in Kousuke's eyes. I bet Sora does know and is just messing around with Kousuke and he takes this chance to have fun and boy he did. With Medusa she is back doing to normal as she is following Wiseman's orders. You can tell that she is somewhat broken down by her failure so she is going back to basics and hoping it will work. She even asks Wiseman about the White Mage and it seems he knows about him, but doesn't say anything to Medusa. All he wants is another Sabbath as he wants more Phantoms. So the most we got was from Sora and I am not mad about that since Medusa failed before so she is going through that and seeing that Wiseman knows of the White Mage still leaves much mystery for both of the characters. Even Sora knows of the White Mage, just how much does he know?
The action portion of the show got a little boost thanks to nice variations. As I said I loved seeing Kousuke going straight in without his belt. It was well done and I always love seeing actors doing more than just act. Going on with Beast we got a look at the Buffa Saber Strike as it does summon Buffaloes and they are big in size. I bet a one with that wouldn't be so bad. With this Saber Strike it was a four and still the Phantom blocks all four of the attacks with his shield. Wizard first came in Hurricane Styles and did the sick sword moves like before and even Water Styles was used. Both of these forms came before Flame as it soon came after Water during the last fight. Flame Dragon was used at the very end and still he struggled with the Phantom. To make things worse we got Kousuke and Nakamoto in danger so focusing on one thing is impossible for him. With Water Styles we got to see the Liquid power being used again and that effect always looks good. The action did have more of a suspenseful level like in the last episode, but it still works well.
