So weird actually being home on a Saturday and not lagging behind everyone else on watching the episode.

Oh, for anyone following the rabid fangirls' journals and being confused on the spelling, the official spelling of the series is Ultraman Moebius. I am lazy and have trouble spelling "Moebius" without thinking about it, so I use the Japanese spelling of "Mebius". (Two less letters to type, all good, yeah?)

Oddly enough, I actually don't have a lot to say. While important, this episode lacked the build up and emotional impact of the last episode (which I still think is the best one to date.) It also followed the standard toku/shounen tropes, which lack a certain depth. ("Oh yeah, I promised everyone I wouldn't die. I wouldn't want to break a promise, so I will stop being dead, stand up, get nifty new power up, and destroy the monster. Don't ask me why I didn't think of doing this earlier.") So... I think what I'm saying is that I had too high expectations, and they were not necessarily met.

Still, some interesting stuff in this. There are a couple of bits I am going to have to review again to make sure I got all the details.

And the matching phones was just waaaaay too cute. Indescribably too cute, really.

Off to finish up a bit more research and then try to knock out some subtitling.
