Bonus Content

Daisuke was the patient in episode 20. He’s possessed by the Bugster Vernier from Jet Combat… and ensnared by the sexism via females around him. Mr. Takahashi Yuya, what was all that about?! Why would you write this, you have treated Asuna and Nico co well so far.

Again, this show pairing Saiba Nico with Hanaya Taiga has done so much for his character. It makes him better and we get another cool person in Nico to make the show better


Now that we’re getting some good time with him, we’re getting to see who Taiga is and why he thinks how he does — also, that is such a cool/dumb line

Genm just can’t keep the Mighty Brothers down! This one-in-two Kamen Rider idea is so neat and novel

Think Pieces

The true nature of the duality between Dan and Emu, Palad and M, N and M, Bugsters/Artificial Life and Humans is all very interesting and the near interchangeability between them all is fun to think about. There are so many connection between the individuals and factions and so many pairings that can be made to compare and contrast them all, it makes for a really rich experience even after an episode is over.

Most of us here at the TOH Network were ready to drop Ex-Aid, but it really has turned out to be an interesting show.

Kuroto Dan created Parad and the Bugsters, but her claims he is working to fulfill Palad’s wish. Previously Dan had said that he knows the Bugsters inside and out and he had shaped them as their creator. That feels like a strange snake eating it’s own tail set up, but as a viewer, isn’t it exciting to see unfold?
