Now here comes a real shocker, even though King passed the test he still failed. Now that may sound very confusing, but again it makes sense sort of. Grey notices that King is too perfect and thus he doesn't know his weakness so he cannot grow any more stronger. First thing I have to say this is really nothing special, it's a good message, but it never makes any sense. Accepting weaknesses are a good thing, but if you are a strong person who are strong. Having no weaknesses doesn't make you unable to keep growing stronger it should help you more. Also this is King having trouble with "brave energy" he's the bravest in the team, he risked two of his teammates' lives just because he had confidence in their strength. Also if Grey noticed this then he just put King in danger because the villains are much stronger now and battles are life or death situations. So I am not completey happy with this part, but there is still some good here.
The best thing to come out of this is a great developing moment for King. Really so far in the series he hasn't really grown anywhere emotionally. He has been King and that's it. Amy learned that she has to be herself and no fancy title is going to change that. Nossan learned being a hero means protecting his family as they give him strength. Souji is now more open with people and he isn't that mad of a person anymore. Then recently Ian puts his friends before any of his personal desires. Then going on with this I was not expecting it as well. I thought King would do as great as he was doing already. So I give credit to how the series did save this moment to be a shocking moment. I mean Grey kicked out King from the team because of this!
Now for the villains as I said before they are growing stronger because of the work they have been doing. The Debos leader is slowly coming back to life and each time he gets closer to being revived the villains get a boost of power. Even the grunts were a challenge for the team in the first fight of the episode. Then we have the final member of the the dinosaur killers. It's a Meteor motif monster and he comes with brute strength. In the beginning he could take any attack thrown by the team and the only one who could hurt him was Ucchi. Thanks to the training everyone except King can hurt him now. So the series is finally getting to the struggling point. This was something I mentioned in many reviews as the suspension for Kyoryuger was low. Thanks to this episode there actually was a touch of suspense because the powerful leader is now the weakest link. Also the villains have increased their powers so that helps as well.
I will ignore the first fight mostly because it was just the team struggling which I am still happy to see more suspense in Kyoryuger now. The second fight did begin the struggle like the first one did, but the four team members braved up and fought with more emotions. This gave us some nice fighting moments for everyone except King since King was in the way this time. That was another nice part about the fight of how it transitions into the shocking moment. Everything was going greatly and then when King tries to use his special attack we were thinking this would be it. Sadly though King's can't do anything against the Meteor monster. Then we had a nice reveal for Bunpachy, Grey's mech. This was a mix of using the prop and CGI effects. This fight actually reminds me of some old Godzilla movies where they would cut to the monsters bashing their heads or their bodies against each other. It was all well intact and the mech is pretty cool. I will say I don't like the head, but everything else is cool. It has a chain and ball on it's tail, but he's a hard head literally so he uses his head for combat as well. Then the ball can actually go on his head which is probably the only thing I like about the head.
Overall this episode was something I need from Kyoryuger. It's not an "A" worthy episode because of somethings that make me scratch my head. Thanks to some nice moments in the action department and some good suspense for once this episode would get a B+ it's close to an "A", but it needed a little more to get it.
