Yoshinori Okamoto was amazing in this episode no doubt about that at all. I really liked his appearance more than Niibori because even though he gave Mitsuki some great teaching we got to see Okamoto's ideology about being villains. He loves to be a strong villain, but his favorite part is to die with beauty. This means dying in battle in a great style making the hero looking stronger. Again this is what I mean about stunt actors being amazing, they put a lot of effort in their roles. Even if you didn't like the character in general you can still give credit to the hard work that was done. There are many amazing stunt actors out there and each one of them want to do their best with any role they got. It could even be the MOTW, but they will still do their best no matter what. It's too bad we didn't get a recent appearance from him in any of the recent Sentai series. He did do stunt work for Akaranger in Gokaiger, but we need another one of his characters.
To make this even better, Okamoto is put in the episode greatly. There is a reason how the MOTW can copy his moves which is because Tsuu had him do some motion capturing for him. Tsuu had him perform his many moves so that his monster can use these moves. This gives us a nice moment for Tsuu as he shows how much of a villain otaku he is. I mean this will be a dream for any Sentai fan to see a stunt actor perform his famous roles once more, but Tsuu loves villains with a passion. So this easily gets ten times bigger for him and now he creates a monster that tributes those moves. Even when the monster died, Tsuu saw it as a beautiful death which is exactly Okamoto does. So not only was this great man given so much love he was put into the plot of this episode very well.
Alright on with the plot of this episode now. In this episode Malshina was not that involved since well she got put into an acrylic box which really looked like how Princess Iaru from Maskman. Also to go along with that moment the Maskman theme was playing since the MOTW pulled off a move done by Oyobur. Along with some more tributes in the final fight as the team use the weakness of the monster's strong desire to die with beauty. They recreate a famous fight from Changeman with Babuu and Change Dragon. This was an awesome moment as they even shown us how they used the sunset effect. Akiba Red was in Super form and he got a fake Changeman shield, his weapon is sort of similar to Changeman's sword, and he even imitated Niibori's moves. There were even camera angles that were used during that fight, too bad it wasn't perfect.
