Now that I am done talking about Gien, let's return to Yuri, the main focus of this episode. I loved the fact that the scenes featuring Yuri opened up with a scene of her just doing her job. To put it simply, she is at her calm and serious self. Adding in the boys in that mixture while she is doing her work showed the audience her dedication to her job, something that sets her apart from the rest of the boys who are well, kinda idle from time to time. Speaking of the boys, I can't help but notice that Domon is starting to act more of a big brother figure to Sion starting in this episode. Well that's one nice character development.
After this, we learned her entire back story thanks to Tac. What I love about the back story is the way it was shot. We got a shot of his family and when we get to the part where we meet the killer, we barely got a look at his appearance. All we know about the guy are the clicks in his boots and his tendency to get something from his victims. Add those elements and the fact that we see the scene in Yuri's perspective gave me chills. What makes this scene more awesome is that we don't see anyone getting gunned; the sound of the gun fire and the shot at Yuri's scared face showed us the impact of this tragedy to the young girl.
Another thing worth noting is what comes after it. Even though Yuri tells everyone that she's okay, what she feels is actually the opposite. The shots of her in contemplating in her room about the past and how that one event changed her added more impact to the flashback scene earlier. After this, we see events happening at the present in which we see Yuri rushing towards the MOTW after learning his location.
Now that she got the evidence that she needs, it's time to do her job as a Timeranger. After retrieving her dad's bracelet, the MOTW peels the sticker to go big. Having a hard time defeating this guy, Time Robo's 3rd formation, the Time Robo Gamma was introduced. This formation reminded me of Jetman's Icarus Harken, the jet formation of the Jet Icarus mecha. Sadly, this formation doesn't have that cool phoenix-like finishing move. Oh well, at least it can create a tornado.
