Kiyoshiro attended a Sentai live stage show. Until, at the end, ShogunGekomon (TonosamaGekomon) has appeared, terrorizing and attacking any runaway targets, turning them into a dissolved digital data. Initially, ShogunGekomon is targetting any delinquent people who are posing threats to any victims. Also, he is looking for a suitable master, named as Jiraiya, in order to guide him through its evil-busting adventures. As Kiyoshiro becomes Jiraiya, and finally sinks in to ShogunGekomon’s back, it has finally become rampant and arrogant, especially when Hiro and others came into rescue.
Basically, the featured enemy Digimon is what I could remember when I previously played Digimon World 2 video game back when I was a kid. I could still remember that its attack could recover any target, if it is of Vaccine attribute. Otherwise, it would work as a normal attack on an enemy target. Now I know that Gekomon (his companion)’s attack is Crashing Symphony, as I am hearing it also as an original Japanese dub in that said video game.
Also, those Sentai characters that appeared in that Episode! Yep, I can really dub them as Jiraiya Rangers, though! Yep, and what I had seen is that it is a usual stage live show, in which it is somehow a special event wherein it is made outside of the TV Series’ Story Episodes. Maybe, you could research that, perhaps?
The rest shall be up to you to find out when you watch this Episode! And guess who appeared again, after being silent for many Episodes ago?
Story is about telling that not everything can be solved by just using “justice” as your tool. Also, it is about retelling the story of Jiraiya, who believed to be the rider of the giant frog, in an old Japanese folk tale. Yep, and just by name, Jiraiya is someone to be one of the old legendary ninjas around. And then, I found that the Episode theme can be interesting, yet boring. In the sense that you had beaten up the suspecting villain, yet he is definitely the wrong one. Something what you call as “Blind Justice”.
I have learned also that having companions along with your dangerous adventures are important. It doesn’t matter whether they are small or large, weak or strong, or even fast or slow. The important is that they can also serve purpose in making your missions a successful one. They may be useless, but who knows that they might turn the tables easily by just slipping at least one move?
Overall, the Episode can be intense. And at the same time, it requires your attention to spot every character or Digimon which did appeared in some other previous Episodes before (Like those two unknown Digimons that are watching from the shadows).
My Rating: AVERAGE (3.4/5)
