My Thoughts On Kamen Rider EX-AID's First Episode
Even if Over-Time decided not to sub EX-AID (I hope they do finish subbing Timeranger) but we've got EXCITE Subs doing the job of subbing the series. Now I'd like to give my thoughts on the series' first episode.
Karino Asuna appears as a health minister personnel. She was left in charge of finding "M" who's none toher than Houjo Emu. Even with that very formal look her natural beauty shines through. It was funny to see her and Houjo have their conflict of interest. But later it turns out she's a video game character known as Poppy Pipopapo. How that's possible still remains to be seen. Don't look for biology and computer engineering textbook to find the answers. Watch the show!
While watching the first episode, I think I'm going to enjoy this one. It's too early for me to say that I'm going to like this show better than Zyuohger. I found Zyuohger to be more fun than Kamen Rider Ghost even if I found Kamen Rider Drive much more fun than Ninninger.
My worries right now is that we have Takahito Oomori. While he was responsible for Kamen Rider Drive but I can't help comment at how he loves to downplay female heroes in his shows. Like come on, he's been at Toei for some time. I wish Junko Fujino in Winspector would shoot him. I'm afraid that like Kiriko Shijima (who got downplayed in later episodes), we might see Asuna getting played down into a damsel in distress in later episodes.
How will Kamen Rider EX-AID turn out? It's too early to tell until I see more of the show. Until then, I'm kind of impressed with what the show offers in its first episode.
