What made Kotaro and Nobuhiko's birthday party more memorable is the appearance of a swarm of grasshoppers in their party. While Kotaro, Nobuhiko and the girls are busy buzzing off the grasshoppers, the guests who are part of Gorgom didn't mind at all and just proceed on eating, chatting and in the case of the professor, smoke. Kotaro and Nobuhiko find this strange and begin their investigation about it starting with their father's office.
As I have expected, Kotaro escaped while Nobuhiko was left hanging as Kotaro failed to save him. His escape scene is fantastic though it bothered me for a bit since he is seen escaping in Gorgom's clutches with only a towel covering his bottom when he escaped them with the Battle Hopper. To those who remembered, he is wearing something when he is running away from Gorgom in the first episode. Heck, the brand of shoes that he is wearing is Converse for crying out loud! I'll just pretend that he found some clothes on the street and wear it before continuing his escape from Gorgom.
Back to Gorgom, those important guys want to be operated into mutants as they want immortality and power. What bothered me about this is that according to the narrator, these creatures can last for 50,000 years, which means that they are not immortal; they just live longer than an average human that's all. As for Kotaro, he continues his investigation about the organization starting with that actress that he met during their birthday party. As expected, Gorgom got a chance to kill her before she can say anything.
The ground fights are really fantastic and well done. Just like the previous episode, I have a problem in terms of the show's explosions. Instead of the Mutant blowing up into smithereens, we see the explosion looked like it is absorbed. Hopefully, they can fix this because it ruins the impact of the death of the Mutant. The episode ends with Kotaro giving hope that Gorgom can be defeated at the end and that they can save Nobuhiko.
