But before they enter the ring, it begins with one epic aerial battle. Though this ended quickly thanks to Takeru hitting Igam's Angramon Fighter, causing it crash and land on a nearby beach. To be honest, it feels rather convenient that Igam's fighter jet landed on a nearby beach, like he is setting this up from the very beginning. But what the heck, it made the second round of their duel more epic.
Now comes the moment that I have been waiting for, Igam finally activating the Death Ring. The activation scene is seriously badass; it has the amazing lightning effect that gives the impression that this is serious business. As for the Death Ring itself, it looks like a chicken cage that I used to see while growing up. Since this is the Death Ring we are talking about, it has electricity in it! This is when the "death" aspect in the Death Ring comes in as Igam and Takeru begins their fight in that ring, seriously exhausted.
For the first time, Takeru experienced fear as he fights a stranger that attacked him all of a sudden. It makes sense since you are just there, walking home when all of a sudden, someone attacks you for no reason. The lesson in this scene is that even though he feels fear, Takeru didn't give up; he continues to fight the strange man until he revealed at the end that his name is Sugata and he was chosen by him to become Red Mask thanks to his attitude. After this scene, it made me wonder how he selected Kenta, Haruka and Momoko to become Maskmen if his methods of choosing one can be as random as that one.
After Takeru showed his disappointment as he thought that Igam is the one who called the creature, he transforms into Red Mask to fight it along with his teammates. They beat the monster, the giant battle came in next, which is still fun to watch and defeat it. Though it is fun to watch, the giant battle becomes too repetitive in this show. Granted they have some variations with the move sets but it is not enough to make the giant fight interesting.
