In this episode, the Go-Busters have to stop Enter from obtaining a device that will upgrade Messiah. At the same time, Ryuji must also protect a girl whose father is held hostage by Enter. Will they succeed? Or will Enter succeed?
It’s amazing to see Enter finally committed to do Messiah’s bidding, instead of acting on his own. Although instead of making the humans suffer, Enter decides to search for a program that will allow Messiah to evolve. Enter is obviously trying to win Messiah’s trust ever since Escape arrived. Speaking of Escape, she didn’t appear in this episode, as well as the previous one.
As for our heroes, Gorisaki and Jin installed a program on the prototype protectors to simulate the effects of the Hyperspace for the Core Busters. This training obviously shows that the Go-Busters are going to the Hyperspace soon. It appears that this simulation is even taxing than the fake Hyperspace, as the Go-Busters can barely stand up (looking hilariously while doin’ it).
As Kuroki dispatches the Go-Busters to Enter’s latest known location, they encountered a professor who didn’t feel easy when the Go-Busters is around. I loved it when J.Stag holds his hand tightly when they’re shaking hands. However the professor kicks them out, it’s obvious that he’s hiding something.
It appears that J.Stag’s handshake isn’t just for formal sake, it is also to detect that professor is lying! Honestly J.Stag is AWESOME. The professor is responsible for creating a device that will accelerate the growth of an organism, which is exactly what Enter wants. Enter appears to held him hostage, threatening to kill the professor’s daughter should he refuses to install the program to Messiah.
As the Busters learn that the girl is also in the building, they went to search for her, only to encounter MushikagoRoid, a bug trap MetaRoid. However before the fight starts, Masato had to leave because Enter is connected to the Hyperspace, and because Masato has been in the surface for too long, Enter could’ve easily detect his location. As much as I appreciate that they pull a reason why Masato can’t appear, I also find that the writers were trying to ditch Masato.
Even without Masato, the Core Busters works well with J.Stag, giving J.Stag a time to shine on his own, well in fighting. J.Stag always shines because of his attitude. The fight with Buglars had caused them to lose MushikagoRoid, and they had to split up to search for him.
It is then MushikagoRoid shows his ability: create labyrinth which made the building looked like a maze, giving the Busters a hard time. As for Ryuji, he encounters a girl who is the professor’s daughter, absolutely shocked because the girl looked so different than the photo they saw earlier, despite the photo is when she was younger. The girl is pretty much a typical Japanese teenage girl, and boy is she AWESOME! Why? When she spotted Ryuji, she thinks he’s a bodyguard wearing a cool outfit, and thinks that Ryuji is too handsome for a bodyguard.
This girls shows no respect towards her father, calling him “that guy” which annoyed Ryuji. The reason why she’s in the building is because she’s coming to get the allowance from her father. It appears that her disrespect is because that she thinks her father cares about work and not her. Ryuji assures her that no parents hate their children. Boy, I’ve been writing that for 2 times today (The other being Wizard 08, which also deals with a similar situation).
If it weren’t for this AWESOME girl, the Busters couldn’t foil MushikagoRoid’s labyrinth. Also, when they spotted the Buglars, this girl thinks that they were cosplayers!! This is really amazing, given the fact most civilians tend to scream when they saw a MetaRoid (and the fact that the MetaRoids are not that scary). Regardless, Ryuji encountered the professor and Enter, while the others chase after MushikagoRoid. Also J.Stag shows his intelligence, something that we rarely seen even though he claims to be a genius as Masato. By intelligence I mean he borrows Yoko’s sweets as a landmark to help them navigate the maze.
During the battle with Enter, the professor struggles to protect his daughter, and worries greatly if she’s injured. The girl finally sees it for herself that every parents care for their children. As for BlueBuster and Enter, the former managed to cut the wires, foiling Messiah’s upgrade. Furious, Enter takes his leave.
As for the other three, the way that they finished MushikagoRoid is AWESOME. I love it when Hiromu uses the grapple on the Morphin’ Brace to swing and slash the MetaRoid. By the time for the MegaZord fights, MushikagoZord summons the fake Hyperspace again, and thankfully Masato appeared in the good timing to help.
The fights this time are entertaining as we learn that the smaller the Hyperspace, the greater the sufferings. This may mean that if Vaglass did succeed on taking over the world, and the Hyperspace expanded to the point where it covered the world entirely, the effects would be lessened. So maybe it’s good thing after all. This is just my theory, don’t believe that it’s real.
Because of the smaller fake Hyperspace, the Go-Busters are suffering even more, and oh boy am I glad to see that they showed the other Busters also suffered the strains, not just Hiromu like they did in Mission 20. Regardless, they activate the program to resist the effects of the Hyperspace (obviously temporary), and managed to destroy MushikagoZord.
As for the girl and the professor, they finally make amend with each other, and the girl asks her father to accept the way she is now. During the scene, I JUST LOVE AT J.STAG TALKING IN THE BACKGROUND.
