It is thanks to her that our heroes were able to encounter the enemy Ganma and the Ganma officer using this week's MOTW. This officer's name is Igor and what is interesting about him is that he's a scientist and it is thanks to him that we learned more about the Ganma World. It is thanks to this that we know why Alain doesn't care about having a physical body. What I like about Igor's scene, especially with Takeru and Akari is that we learned that the Ganma World is a utopia, but to have this utopia, they sacrificed one important aspect that makes a world interesting, and that is free will. Well that explains a lot actually, on why a lot of Ganma look and feel like mindless beings and why Javert has a sudden change of personality.
As for the fight itself, it was serviceable. It was decent, and in my opinion, should be at least a little longer and should properly reflect Makoto's current status at that time. I mean, for a guy who was badly injured in the previous episode, he still can fight decently. Finally, the moment that this fight builds up for, Makoto becoming Necrom Specter, what makes this scene so great is that it added an extra layer to Alain's character, that he sees his "friends" as instruments and not friends. That's the case he has with Makoto. He used the Necrom Eyecon to control Makoto, now becoming his slave. It was a really strong scene and was something that surprised me a bit because we barely saw Makoto as one of the good guys at this point in the show.
After we are done with this bit, it is time for Takeru to take center stage and fight the Ganma. What I like about this is that we get to see Igor show off some of his skills, like using the souls he collected to attack Ghost. It was creepy on its own and thankfully, this happened during the day. But I got to be honest, Ghost needs to amp up the creepy or scary factor and this scene was a missed opportunity for them to do it. It is also during this scene where Himiko acknowledges Ghost, and decides to let him use her power. To put it simply, it is time for the debut of Kamen Rider Ghost Himiko Damashii.
As for the finisher, it's a standard sword flourish, but the way it was executed looks really great on camera. The episode ends and everything seems to be back to normal... except for Makoto and some stuff about the Newton Eyecon that they just hinted in this episode, but didn't bother to expand on. Can our heroes find Makoto and his whereabouts and with all 15 Ghost Eyecons having their owners, will Takeru finally use this opportunity to become more determined and get his body back? That is for us to find out in the next episode!
