Gou Must Be Stopped! -Drive 13-RX! 097

Today we’re putting Drive to the test as speedy as we can, as we cover:

13 Why Does My Brother Have No Brakes?

Q1-WHY the SENGOKU did Shinnosuke attack Gou without talking to him or even really thinking? OH… because DS is so terrifying to experience for humans? So did Sanjou just say torture is cool as long as you get the right results?

Q2-Do you feel Sanjou, through Gou, is setting up a valid and interesting examination of Kamen Rider using the power of evil to combat evil?

Q3-How did you feel about the romance angle being foisted upon Shinnosuke and Kiriko? Do you feel that it is indeed being foisted upon them? Is Rinna jealous?

Q4-Whose Speedy fighting fight premiere showcase was better: Drive’s or Mach’s?

Q5-So… Medic teleports with animated GIFs of roses, huh?


Facts-What we know, know about the plot and characters of the show


-The Mach system is designed to surpass Drive and was developed by Krim’s mentor Professor Harley Hendrickson in America. Gou left on his own without letting the professor know.

-Shijima Sumiko (Gou and Kiriko’s mother) and their unnamed father are dead.

-Gunman and his unevolved lil’ brother 018 are impersonation an arms dealer and his bodyguard and selling the Density Shift wristbands to people no questions asked. It seems they want the items to become popular.

-Rinna has already produced SpeedUp machine MK II

Potential Leads- These are things to keep an eye on, as they may develop into something more interesting or central to the narrative in time


-Otto gives a morale moralizing pep talk to Todogawa.

-Gou asked Kiriko to not question how how fights and have faith in him?

-When Chase presents himself as having doubts about who and what he is, Heart encourages hims to be resolved and protect Gunman and 018 by telling him he’s a great warrior and that 0 is an honored number.

-Chase became disoriented when Kiriko showed up. I’m sure her bullets weren’t the cause.

Other Notes-Things that stick out, but aren’t really important to the narrative


– Was Kiriko making those absurd chipmunk noises?

-Rinna geeking out on Mach’s specs was so cool… or was she supposed to be coming between Shinnosuke and Kiriko?
