Recap and Review: Kamen Rider Drive Episode 2

          So what awaits us after the debut episode of Kamen Rider Drive.  Let's hop right into it with episode two "What is a Kamen Rider?".  We start off with a flashback to when Buckle was still human.  The Roidmudes attack his house and apparently he can't die while "they" are still out there.  Buckle comes out of that flashback saying that he still has his demons even though he is a belt. We find out from Kiriko that Tomari is being lazy again because he is still having trouble moving forward.  We find Tomari in the cafeteria of the police station eating his candy before Kiriko and Justice Hunter, another Shift Car, find him and run him down so they can have a talk.  We cut to Heat picking up a ride to meet a friend of his.  Back with Tomari we find out what we already know about the Roidmudes and the Shift Cars.  Tomari suggest that the Shift Cars and Roidmudes might come from the same source since that are both related to Slowdown.  We also find out only Tomari can become Drive and Kiriko can't for yet to be explained reasons.  Tomari gets a Shift Car holder on the way out to take care of something else.  We get a quick scene with the rest of the S.C.U. goofing around before we check in with two of our main villains.

          Heart finds Brain in a restaurant and informs him of 029's new body.  Brain "borrows" a bystanders tablet to find where he is and tells his comrade that he is almost ready.  We see said Virus Core, the villains Shift Cars, latch onto a computer to gain back his original human form.  From there we see Tomari help his partner try to walk around a bit.  He seems to still be badly hurt and can barley take any steps before collapsing.  Hayase tries to tell him to not worry about it but Tomari is caught up in how he in a sense took his badge away and regulated him to a wheelchair.  He tells him to find something to be responsible for before dropping his painkillers. Tomari after picking them up manages to put together to case.  Back at the station he tells them that the other victims where rejects since they were not up to the Roidmudes standards.  He is after people who are healthy and the scraps are from various medication packs.  He takes those who are healthy and leaves the others in the state that they have been found.  The team splits up to cover various avenues of investigation to find his location.  Tomari is down in the Pit to roll out in the Tridoron before Buckle tells him he was listing to his conversation with Hayase.  We also see Shift Speed park in a series of six slots on the dash possibly hinting at six form changes at least.  Kiriko arrives and the two are raised up to the street above to roll out.

          They find his hideout is at a abounded amusement park where they find the people he has captured.  He is after a perfect body and after evolving into a new form activates Slowdown which seems to affect parts of the city outside of the park.  Tomari goes to chase after him while Kiriko handles the captives.  Tridoron gets called in after 093 and 071 arrive to back up their friend.  All three run off and Tomari gives chase in the Tridoron.  Tomari Henshins in the vehicle while he is giving chase.  The Roidmudes do their best to shake him but to no avail.  They manage to drop some debris on the car in a parking garage but Flare, Spike, Shadow activate Tire Extension to equip the Tridoron with their wheels.   Tomari uses these to take out 029's back-up.

          The monster finds another potential victim before Drive arrives to break it up and begin to fight him off.  Tomari is able to best him for a bit before the Roidmude changes up his arsenal.  Tomari equips Justice Hunter to give himself a grill like weapon to beat him down.  He sets up the finish by putting the monster in a cage and finishes him off with a Rider Punch.  The monster calls him a Kamen Rider before he goes boom like many others before and after him.  We find out there is 108 of these guys and only 103 remain due to Tomari's efforts.  Heart and Brain sense the monster's destruction and are surprised he could be taken down.  They need some back up to take this person down and Chase arrives to do so, looking very much like Kamen Rider OOO.  The S.C.U is all a buzz after the closing of the case and are interested in the mysterious fighter that stopped the monster.  In private Tomari asks Kiriko about the whole Kamen Rider thing which gets a smile out of her before she denies doing so.  We end with Buckle liking the ring of Kamen Rider Drive and the setup of the case to come next week.

          This week was a nice follow up to the strong start the show had last week but shows a potential flaw that may or may not carry over from episode to episode.  Tomari fell into the routine he had before he became Drive last week and I hope that this will not be a common occurrence.  It is find for him to do this after suffering a big defeat and bouncing back from it due to his experiences in the show but for it to happen this early was a miss step along with repeating a chase with Kiriko for laughs I guess.  Everything after that  was fine and played into what I think could be setup for a major reveal later on, especially with how Buckle reacted.  Everything else was good and gave the Tridoron a chance to shine along with debuting a new Shift Car. I have a feeling that next week will be a better look at how episodes will play out from here on since part of this episode was a repeat of the first.  We get hints at various things like Buckle's old life and the introduction of Chase but we will leave that alone for now.  Overall a nice follow up with a bit of a miss step early on that leads to better things in the episode.  Next Week the team investigates a art gallery and Chase is ready to take down Drive.
