  1. Since Nyaa is currently down, again, here is the magnet link for the torrent magnet:?xt=urn:btih:173F2CC842ABFAFFBE8D82CF7285CA8140CF894C&dn=%5bAesir%5dKamen_Rider_Gaim_-_45HD%5b1422B931%5d.mkv&tr=udp%3a%2f%2fopen.nyaatorrents.info%3a6544%2fannounce&tr=http%3a%2f%2fexodus.desync.com%2fannounce&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80

    • Yeah it looks like the shot is out of focus along with being bizarrely shot. Perhaps they cropped in a lot. This isn’t the first gaff I’ve noticed with gaim. Way way ago I recall their being slightly different aspect ratios.

  2. Actually I really think you guys should sub the Ranbu Escalation song, becoz it’s gonna make the scene way more epic

    • The reason they didn’t do it was because everything except the chorus was incomprehensible because of the noise of the fight scene. The verses couldn’t be made out properly. But the fight scene is still enjoyable without subs for the song. Maybe they’ll go back and re-do that scene to accomodate the song once its officially released next Wednesday as far as I know.

  3. Looking through the last couple of pages I have no idea why people go ahead and watch the raw episodes when they don’t speak a lick of Japanese. It would just end up frustrating me if i watched that and had no inkling of what anyone was actually saying.

    But that aside, this episode was pretty great. The stuff with Zack was really well done and it highlighted some of the best parts of a character that didn’t have much to do during the series but definitely ended up having an impact near the end.
    The scene with Kouta where he eats the helheim fruit. Pretty great. The dialogue with his sister was kind of stilted and lifeless but the act itself definitely drove the point home to the character as well as the audience that Kouta is definitely not human anymore, kiwami lockseed aside.
    Yoko’s death and Kaito’s monologues to her and Mai are kind of confusing to me though. Did she die from the explosion or the fall? And what did Kaito mean by you are Yoko and the fruit is the fruit but when he spoke to Mai he referred to having her and the fruit as being one and the same.

    The fight at the end was some of the best stuff this show has had so far. And I am supremely grateful to have even the slightest amount of bike fu in the series again
    As an aside, I’m a little disappointed that Aesirsubs weren’t able to transcribe the lyrics to Ranbu Escalation but considering how noisy the fight scene was with the song being largely in the background (other than the chorus) I don’t blame them.
    As another aside related to subbing, earlier on in the series I remember it being stated that Oren was in the French armed forces in order to get his French citizenship or whatnot. In this episode however, its mentioned that he was a mercenary. Is that a subbing discrepancy, a change in the character backstory or am I just mistaken in my original assumption?

    Lastly, Zack probably isn’t dead since Kaito made it a point to attack his belt like with Oren and Jonouchi instead of him directly. So pretty sure he’ll make it

    Couldn’t have asked for a better episode to watch on my birthday

    • Yoko probably died due to internal injuries caused by the fall, the armour probably protected her from pancaking on the pavement, but because she was probably knocked out by the explosion and didn’t land on her feet that’s why she got seriously injured.

      If you don’t understand “Yoko is Yoko, the fruit is the fruit” basically that means “I like you for the person you are, you don’t need the fruit for me to like you” It’s basically a sweet thing to say to someone without actually saying it.

      Hard to believe we only have 1 more week of this to go (not counting the epilogue episode until it proves itself!)

      • I’ve been going under the assumption that episode 47 is there to setup the next series. DRIVE!

        • If it was a cross over episode like what we gotten at the end of Wizard, we would have heard already. I think it’s an epilogue like the last episode of Double. Drive might just have a cameo appearance like at the end of OOO and Fourze.

          • Except that the final episode might not have anything to do with the main story ending itself since it doesn’t have the involvement of the head writer for this season. And he’s been involved in all the episodes except the one’s that don’t have any bearing on the story, plot or continuity (see: soccer world episode, Kikaider crossover)

            • Except Except that Urobuchi *is* involved with 47; he’s not writing it but, he’s listed as “Supervision” so I doubt that anything’s gonna go on that he wouldn’t be okay with.
