This blog post may contain minimal spoilers. Please read this only if you had seen this Episode.

EPISODE OVERVIEW

A mysterious Kaiju is devouring any objects, including people, by making them disappear, leaving their shadows behind. Both the Dynazenon Crew and Kaiju Eugenicists were instantly devoured by the Kaiju, trapping them inside its body containing the closed dimension that reveals their past times.

Now that Yomogi and everyone else were trapped inside the Kaiju’s dimensional space, how will Yomogi snap out of his past time and rescue them, and to get out from the Kaiju’s body?

EPISODE REVIEW

This is where, in this Episode, almost all of the people (including villains) were trapped inside the Kaiju’s body. Only Chise and The Second were able to escape, thanks to Goldburn who can fly up higher in the skies to avoid the Kaiju’s devouring ability.

This is where we could get some scenes where their past times were revealed.

Yume gets a chance to meet her sister, Kano, just a day before the time she (Kano) commits suicide.

Koyomi is just facing a past involving a girl that he met.

Knight is facing his past, at the time when he was still Anti. He used to be a pawn of Akane Shinjo, from the past SSSS.GRIDMAN Anime series.

And Gauma gets his vision on his past. He was formerly a Kaiju Eugenicist, just like Juuga and others.

Yeah, a tricky Kaiju which was supposely to be the ‘Final Boss’ of this Anime. And Yomogi was the only one who can snap out from the dimension that the Kaiju has created, thanks to the Dyna Soldier’s powers.

And also, only the past of Yume is really the highlight of this Episode. It shows on how Yume interacted with her sister very well, at the time before suicidal.

Yep, a past that was already written cannot be changed by any means. But then, our future can still be rewritten, and it shall be depending on our actions made in the present!
