GaimChristmasDance

Following the reveal of Genm’s identity as Kuroto Dan, Emu catches up to Kiriya and gets the full story of his friend who died on Zero Day: after hearing of his Bugster infection, he was so shaken up he got caught in a traffic accident, which is why Kiriya is investigating the Bugsters.[Excitesubs]_Kamen_Rider_Ex-Aid_12_Christmas_Special_Targeting_the_Silver_X-mas!(5)At CR, Kuroto’s deception is discussed, Hinata confirming that only Kuroto was involved in all of Genm Corp., and that the Ministry of Health will handle the matter. Emu talks with Shuhei’s mother and learns that she and her husband are patissiers (cake makers) whose business around Christmas bothers Shuhei and that he broke his leg climbing a tree in a park; Emu finds and climbs the same tree, finding something on a branch. Meanwhile, Kiriya visits a prison and meets with an inmate, former Genm Corp. CEO Masamune Dan. Emu talks with Shuhei about always being alone as a kid and playing video games to occupy himself (a flashback showing a crayon sketch of a 2-player game he envisioned), and that Shuhei instead climbs trees to cope; however, Shuhei’s infection flares as the Level 3 Salty attacks his parents’ patisserie, Le Couple.exaid12-1006Arriving with Poppy and Shuhei, Emu transforms into Ex-Aid Sports Action Gamer Level 3 using his newly acquired Shakariki Sports Gashat, Salty summoning a group of his same Bugster Virus chefs as before and Brave Beat Quest Gamer Level 3 joining the fight. Salty is knocked into a Mighty Action X block, releasing a Christmas Energy Item that turns Ex-Aid into a Santa Claus-dressed Level 1 form and decorated Sports Gamer bike as it starts snowing. Shuhei’s mother comes over to Shuhei and says Emu told her he’d climbed the tree to get at holly berries for a wreath he was making for her but fell, giving him a cake decorated with their family. As Salty attacks again, Poppy breaks open two more blocks and sends Christmas Energy Items to herself and Brave, dressing them as Santa, too; Poppy uses Brave’s DoReMiFa Beat armaments to trigger a remix of “Jingle Bells” and starts singing along. KYUKUYKBrave and Ex-Aid keep fighting Salty as the Bugster Viruses are entranced into dancing along with Poppy; they hit Salty with a Gashacon Weapon dual B-Button attack, all of them striking a pose for the camera before the Bugsters explode into the message “Merry Christmas” for the audience. A cloud of cell Viruses are pulled into the Gashacon Bugvisor by a nearby Parado. Poppy’s singing, however, is stressing out Shuhei all over again; Poppy admits that she’s actually a Bugster herself from DoReMiFa Beat, but Emu and Hiiro respond that anyone could have figured that out. Back at their hideout, Kuroto and Parado look at their new project, the “ultimate game”: Kamen Rider Chronicle. After a Christmas party at CR, Emu mentions to Director Kagami how Salty separated from Shuhei on his own, Hiiro explaining that viruses survive vaccines by mutating, leading to Emu realizing the Bugster virus is evolving. Just then, Kiriya calls for the Riders to gather so he can tell them something, but before leaving, Taiga is stopped by a girl wearing Genm Corp. game merchandise; she introduces herself as Nico Saiba and asks him to defeat the Genius Gamer M.BNNBNNHKuroto arrives to meet Kiriya, revealing the prisoner Kiriya had visited to be his father; Kiriya says that Masamune told him Kuroto had met Emu 16 years ago, revealing that he knows how Emu can transform without a compatibility surgery. Kuroto offers Kiriya a new Gashat beyond the first 10 as a trade for keeping silent; Kiriya takes the Gashat but says he wants Kuroto to pay for Zero Day, transforming into Lazer Bike Gamer Level 1 and triggering the new Gashat, Dangerous Zombie, but upon putting it in the Gamer Driver, it zaps away most of his Rider Gauge health. Kuroto says Kiriya knows too much, taking back the Gashat and using the Gashacon Bugvisor with a new belt to form the Buggle Driver, transforming into Genm Zombie Gamer Level X (Level 10), summoning a swarm of Bugster Viruses dressed in torn civilian clothes and stumbling about like zombies to intercept the other Riders as they arrive outside; Lazer desperately transforms into Chambara Bike Gamer Level 3. The Riders transform to Level 2 and destroy the Bugster Viruses, but Lazer is easily overpowered by the new Genm, even Sickle Mode Giri Giri Critical Finish seeming to do nothing, before Genm steals the Gashacon Sparrow and Giri Giri Chambara Gashat, using his own Critical End finisher and depleting the last of Lazer’s Rider Gauge. Kiriya claws at him, but is pushed aside as it begins to rain. The other Riders arrive as Genm leaves, running over as Kiriya’s body begins to digitize and fade. Kiriya gives his Driver and Bakusou Bike Gashat to Emu, telling him to take his fate in his own hands. The Driver announces: “Game Over” after Kiriya dies and his body completely fades away into nothing. Emu cries holding the Gamer Driver over the place where Kiriya’s body was as the others look on in shock.JFNFGNFGNFGNKamen Rider Ex-Aid is an absolute joy. Rarely does a Kamen Rider series so brilliantly combine its differing themes into such a perfect package, with one of the most loveable casts in recent years. This Christmas episode along with Episode 11 are great offerings from an awsome show.

CHRISTMAS 2017 REVIEW: KAMEN RIDER EX-AID: WHO’S THE BLACK KAMEN RIDER?

GaimChristmasDance

Emu is now only one week away from finishing his 3-month internship at the Seito University Hospital, and goes to see off his latest patient of a broken leg, Shuhei Yamanaka, and his mother just in time for Christmas, but Shuhei glumly says he hates Christmas. Meanwhile at Genm Corp., Kuroto Dan is working with a new blank white Gashat with Parado, but to complete it, he needs “the data of death”; Parado comments on temporary in-game deaths vs. humans’ permanent deaths. At the hospital, as Shuhei walks away and his mother says she’ll need to go back to work, he drops his crutches and runs, laughing in an altered voice. Emu and Asuna follow him outside, where he collapses in pain before globs of orange virus material jump off of him and form the Salty Bugster. Emu is surprised the Bugster already separated from the patient, recognizing Salty from their first battle, but noticing he’s slightly different; Salty confirms he has leveled up, to Level 3. Emu transforms into Ex-Aid Robot Action Gamer Level 3, overwhelming Salty, but Genm Sports Action Gamer Level 3 arrives. Ex-Aid changes to Hunter Action Gamer Level 5 Full Dragon, overpowering Genm but flying out of control and crashing into a nearby building, letting Genm and Salty escape.GaimChristmasDanceShuhei’s downer attitude continues in CR; remembering Hinata cheering him up with a gamepad after his own operation, Emu asks Shuhei’s mother to find out what would do the same for Shuhei: cake, but before he can get some, he is called to Kuroto’s office. Kiriya is already there threatening to find Kuroto’s secrets before Emu, Hiiro, and Taiga arrive; Kuroto assigns them to clear the tenth and final Gashat, Shakariki Sports, and say that the black Ex-Aid is working to spread the Bugster virus. Emu is still opposed to the idea of Hinata’s surgery on him being suspicious, rejecting Kiriya’s claim that he needs a reason to trust Hinata is a good person.9_1At a hospital, Kiriya continues investigating Emu’s surgery, a nurse saying nothing was suspicious during the procedure, and that the entire team trusted Hinata. Emu meanwhile is fighting a large crowd to get a cake; finally bringing one to Shuhei, the boy replies that he hates cake. Emu is saddened by not being able to cheer his patient like Hinata had done for him, but is called by Kuroto: Emu needs to transport Shuhei elsewhere, as the Ministry of Health appears to be behind the Bugster virus, the revelation and Kiriya’s speech shaking Emu’s trust of Hinata. After the call, Kuroto takes the 10 Proto Gashats and says goodbye to his office. Walking along, Emu’s speech gives Kiriya a revelation about trust.UntitledArriving with Shuhei to an empty skate park, Emu and Poppy are attacked by Genm Sports Action Gamer Level 3, stating himself to be after the data of death from killing Shuhei. Emu transforms to Ex-Aid Hunter Action Gamer Level 5 Full Dragon and fights, Genm claiming to work for Hinata and mocking Emu’s lack of Hinata’s doctor skills; something inside Ex-Aid snaps, and he goes out of control, but Kiriya tackles him down, reminding him not to let his trust of Hinata slip so easily, and bringing him back to normal. Kiriya says he’ll believe in Emu as Hiiro and Taiga arrive, the four Riders taking their partial-dragon Level 5 forms. They attack Genm, knocking him out of Sports Action Gamer Level 3 down to Action Gamer Level 2 and almost depleting his Rider Gauge.

UntitledHowever, Genm puts the white Gashat into the Gashacon Bugvisor and attacks Shuhei and Poppy with a Shakariki Critical Strike, but Ex-Aid jumps over and swats Genm away with his dragon tail, emptying Genm’s Rider Gauge and clearing Shakariki Sports; Ex-Aid catches the Gashat. Before dying, Genm stabs the Gashacon Bugvisor onto his Rider Gauge, absorbing away the data of death from his own body and saving himself. No longer needing the charade, he announces his name to the other Riders for the first time, “Kamen Rider Genm”, untransforming to reveal himself to them as Kuroto Dan; Hiiro admits Kiriya had been telling the truth before. Questioned on his actions, Kuroto tells them they were test subjects so he could collect data for the ultimate game. He reprises his metaphor of Emu keeping the crystal of his heart from breaking and tells them the Bugster virus has already spread across the city before shooting with the Bugvisor to cover his escape. Staggering back to his new hideout with Parado waiting, he removes the white Gashat from the Bugvisor, and its image appears from the death data: Dangerous Zombie. A new game is starting.Ex-Aid 11Kamen Rider Ex-Aid is an absolute joy. Rarely does a Kamen Rider series so brilliantly combine its differing themes into such a perfect package, with one of the most loveable casts in recent years.
