Inori-D Station strives to give spoiler-free Episode Reviews and Impressions in this post.
Tokime has found Rentaro, and they managed to escape from the Another Fuuto, thanks to the two bad guys who had used an item to open up the portal leading to the original Fuuto. As they had made it out, Nikaido (Reactor Dopant) found them sneaking, and he stands on their way.
Shotaro, Philip, and the others had made it on time, and they had arrived at the scene where Tokime, Rentaro, and the Reactor Dopant are there. And then, it’s their final heated showdown between the team of W and Accel against the Reactor Dopant.
Alright, Episode Review and Impression post! And the Season Finale!
Basically, I have enjoyed the entire series through with its animated action scenes, wherein they were too far from the original TV Series. But then, just finishing a story arc with a major problem solved doesn’t mean it is over for fans like me!
Somehow, the character developments of the characters here can be still emphasized when you watched the original Kamen Rider W TV Series. And then, Fuuto PI Anime is just a 12-Episode Anime where it is just re-introducing its watchers and fans into the world of Kamen Rider W Universe (Including the basic forms, attacks, vehicles, and some other “unused” gimmicks!). It seems that this Anime can really let you know about Kamen Rider W, especially for fans who don’t know it yet. In fact, even though you had skipped watching the original live action one, you can still get to know them! Of course, either Akiko Narumi or Philip can really educate you in having your memory to be filled in a while! But for avid Kamen Rider fans (Kamen Rider W), it can be just a memory refresher for them. And so, if there is any familiar scenes in the Anime, then fans can actually look up to the original live action scene counterpart — from where did it come from!
I did really appreciate on what the main characters had done here, just in order to excite their fans. Yep, those explosion fan services, aerial attack scenes, and some cool transformation and battle cry phrases can really suit me up in my own taste of favoritism! Yeah, and there are still more that I can expect from this series, in general, such as what could be their next investigation case just right after they had solved their one big, tough investigation case. And just like in the final Episode of the original live action series, it ended up with a continuity, while yelling their, “Saa, omae no tsumi o kazoero!” phrase at the last seconds.
Overall, I had enjoyed this Anime series, but it ended up with my fires burning with excitement. It makes me feel that this Anime is really deserved to have a second season! And amazingly, it ended up with the 3-Episode Story arc that was finished successfully without any additional problem or conflict. And more likely, those Dopant guys will really get our hard-boiled detectives next time in the future when the time comes! I hope that we could get to know more about Ryu Terui’s character, and Tokime as well, since they weren’t elaborated very well throughout the course of this Anime series.
In the end, I would rate up this Anime with a 4.5 out of 5! And to learn from this Episode, just finishing the first one doesn’t really mean that there would be no second. Or as equivalent as well. It seems that Shotaro and Philip aren’t done yet with their Private Eye action. So as long as they have Tokime, their future investigation case actions will continue.
And that’s it for this Episode Review for this Anime Series! Or you can choose to follow their adventures by reading their original sequel Manga Series from Kamen Rider W!
Fuuto PI (Fuuto Tantei) is an Anime series which is based from the “sequel manga series” of Kamen Rider W, a 2009 TV Tokusatsu Series.
