Also I'm not a fan of the extra fur on his suit.
The villain's plan though was a good one because they would have the kids fight with anger the whole time and heck using them to fight the heroes is smart since who would hurt a kid? I mean really those three kids could have been used more, but Daigo did get them free pretty fast so there's that. The MOTW was also a very interesting one mostly because of the things he did later on. I am a huge fan of his designs though, it looks like he should celebrating something. Which is fits with the Child's Day theme in this episode. He also pulls a neat trick in the mecha fight as he grows a tail all of a sudden. I was not expecting that at all from him and it's not like a snake tail, it's like the end part of the paper carps which again fits his theme. So yea the MOTW was pretty surprising thanks to some of his abilities.
For the action it was handled very well. First we got three songs and it was the fight theme, the opening theme, and Gold's theme. You usually don't hear three songs playing in the same episode, but each moment fits fight they were selected for. The fight theme was when Ucchi has his realization and fights with Daigo, out of suit! Even though I can easily tell that there are stunt actors being used it was still nice to see Daigo and Ucchi cut up some foes with their swords. Also it wasn't very obvious with the stunt men even if they did the hiding face technique. Then we got the opening theme when Gold fully fights with the team for the first time and that fits a lot since it's a big moment for the team. There weren't many reveals though, but the fifteenth battery got used in combat which is good. The best part of the team fight was when they use Kentrospiker along with Gold's finisher as Red and Gold both get high in the air for their attack. Also lightning effects make everything better.
Finally, Gold's theme was used for the mecha fight. First I really love this song for him. I can say I love a lot of Psychic Lover's songs and this song could be my favorite. It combines a nice natural instrumental with the rock which I am a big fan of. Going on though the mech fight was probably one of the best in the series so far. First it was longer than most of the fights, the MOTW grew a tail which was surprising, there was a struggle, and a new reveal! We get to see Raiden Kyoryujin and it's a simple combination with Ptreagordon's wings on the back and then having it's head be the new helmet. It's a very good a simple change that adds a lot to the suit. Then it was a fight in the sky as they don't show the tail effect for the monster the whole time, but that's reasonable. The finisher was a big slash with lightning!
Next Time: Class and cross dressing in session.
