In the context of a kid's show, this is a really great lesson to teach to kids. It teaches kids about equality, especially if you are colleagues of the same level or class. It is okay to be a gentleman, but if you are dealing with a female warrior, you should treat her as such, a warrior, not a woman. As for how they ended up in the situation wherein they are forced to fight, it is because they saved civilians who were almost forced to fight in the Dethgalien player's Battle Show. After the player caught these two, he left with them, causing the rest of the team to look for them.
While this sock smelling shenanigans is happening, we see Leo half-ass his fight against Sela. I got to say, for a fight this half-assed, the way they shot the fight looks really convincing. I mean, for a casual viewer, it's hard to tell where the stunt double starts and where the actor begins. It didn't help that they shot it to give you did grand feel of watching a fight in some large arena. As expected, Sela noticed that Leo is just half-assing it, leading us to a flash back during a tournament wherein Leo intention lost because he doesn't want to deliver the finishing blow. How I understand it, this is where Sela started hating Leo and his gentleman attitude. All she wants is a good fight, and not Leo throwing him to give her that win.
Before we see all five of them fight the player of this week, we got this quick shot of Leo once again, withholding his finishing move for just a brief moment. So yeah, though he fought seriously, he still stays with his old tricks; he'll let the girl win because she's a girl. Guess this episode will not be the last time we will see Leo do it. With an angry Sela and a Leo who thinks that he convinced Sela that he's treating her like a warrior, the two decided to fight the Dethgalien player. Their team-up in this episode is really fantastic, granted Sela still hates him, but the way they two team-up to beat the player looks amazing.
With the player defeated, it is time for the giant battle, again, impressive use of the other Cube Animals and as expected, I like that they always find a way to put them out of commission first so that we can focus on Zyuoh King in action. After Cube Kirin saved the other two Cube Animals, it is time for the finisher. Much to my surprise, I got the standard cool bazooka finisher that I wanted. Turns out that just like their standard finishing attacks, Cube Kirin's finisher varies to the Zyuoh King combination that is being used... and I am okay with it.
Meanwhile, a gorilla man is taking his tea, and by the looks of it, this gorilla man is a zyuman and he's been living in the human world for years! That being said, what's the reason why he is in our world? Is his reason possibly the same as the bird zyuman who saved Yamato's life years ago? That is for us to find out as the next episode preview states that we will finally meet him.
