3:44 PMRecap and Review: Kamen Rider Gaim Episode 34
With a small bit of quiet time last week we get right back into the thick of things this week so let's take a look at Kamen Rider Gaim episode thirty-four "The King's Power and The Queen's Resurrection." We start things off before the opening for a change as Kouta questions weather Pierre is right in his assumption about Zangetsu. He gets a bit upset after Peco questions him but the situation dies down as Micchy arrives. Team Gaim is happy he is okay but Kaito and Minato trade glances with him since they know his true self. Kaito asks him if this feels wrong to him as we cut to the opening.
Back from the opening Redyue is messing with some tech and seeing what he can build out of it. At Gaim HQ Kaito tells Minato about the current situation with Micchy and leaves. Micchy then comes out to have a talk with Minato. He tells her what he is up to and even offers her a chance to team up. She throws it back at him and says he has lost his chance to manipulate her and anybody else. She goes on to flat out call him a yes-man and tell him he has no home anymore since he has weaved his web of lies. Meanwhile in the forest Redyue gives an update to Roshuo and Gurisha, another Overlord, is sent to help Redyue out. Roshuo finds out that there is another way to resurrect his queen and he may not need the Forbidden Fruit anymore. Micchy is a bit mad about his conversation when Redyue returns to Yggdrasill HQ and confirms their roles in the scheme against Roshuo.
We check in with Akira who is hiding out with others in a gym waiting for rescue. She heads out to find help and runs into a Inves grunt along the way. With some help form bike dominos she gets away. Kouta drops by Drupers to have a chat with Kaito. The two have a conversation about the Fruit and the current situation. Kouta tells him he would happily give it to Kaito but Kaito says that it is naive of him to do that. Redyue chimes in via satellite to state their plans to the world and tell humanity to surrender now. Zack heads off with Pierre and Jono in tow to Yggdrasill tower. Kouta and Kaito are not happy about this when Akira runs in asking for help. Micchy confronts Redyue over his declaration when he powers up his machine and sends Gurisha to gather fuel. We see are new comedic trio get into a fight with Inves as they are carting off people. They manage to save some people but find themselves outnumbered. Zack throws Jono the Watermelon Lockseed that he got form Kaito to even the odds. Jono doesn't know how to use it and ends up being thrown around by Pierre for comedic effect and manages to take down all of the Inves.
Gurisha finds the group Akira was with and Kouta and Kaito move in to help. They manage to save everybody except for the kid form earlier who is being taken away. Akira tires to save the kid but only gets herself taken away. Kouta saves the kid but can't save his sister in time before being attacked by Gurisha. He goes Kachidoki to buy time to get the kid to hide and goes Kiwami to end the fight. Kouta lays into the Overlord and with a Banana Charge to trap him thanks to Kaito, in Lemon Energy Arms the entire fight, Kouta attempts to take the Overlord down with a Kiwami Au Leit slash form the DJ Gun, Muso Saber Combo. Redyue saves the Overlord and draws the two attention to the fact that thousands of missiles are coming to wipe Zawame City off the map to end the Inves threat quickly. Kouta is shocked by this while Kaito is not too surprised. Redyue laughs it up while Roshuo up on top of Yggdrasill HQ with Takatora decides to call her bluff. He stops the missiles in place and disintegrates them. Micchy left shocked by the Overlords power says that he chose the right side and declares he will build a new home after the world is destroyed. We end this week with Micchy once more laughing as he plummets further into darkness.
This week was back to form as we get a true showcase of what Roshuo is capable of. Kouta shows his naiveté once more but shows how much he has grown by saving the kid and wanting to end the fight quickly to maybe get his sister back before something else happens. Kaito shows his usual self this week but does show he will stand by Kouta. Minato shines this week as she calls out Micchy on what he truly is and even tells him that his lies have only made him a stranger to all those around him. The Overlords show that they are a force to be feared and Roshuo specifically will not go down easily. Zack, Pierre and Jono bring some much needed comedy to the show and it defiantly is appreciated. Overall this week was a great episode and shows once more all the strengths of this show and why it will become a go to recommendation for many people wanting to introduce other to Kamen Rider. Next week Redyue begins to fuel his machine, Takatora returns to Zawame and Micchy steps out from the shadows to show others who he truly is.
