Tiger LOL still trying to prove he is himself. Not much luck with that until Kaede fixed things. Being lectured by Kaede was funny ^^
I totally hate that Maverick, but at least now they know what he did.
Barnaby still in the dark, but Tiger is trying his best to force him to remember.

It was the cliche line that pissed me off.

She showed more personality than Flower Girl ever did in Macross 7.

Don't know who that is...

That tells me that they all recognized the face under it, and I can't think of any important character that this could be other than Jake. Well, except maybe a clone of Kotetsu... I hope not though.
I first considered Jake but then I remembered that Kotetsu had actually managed to knock him down beforehand, without even using his powers. So either Jake has lost his mind reading abilities or it's not him.

My guess is the same as before. It's got to be a robot. They may have been surprised because it's possible there was actually nothing under the mask, or maybe just some robot Terminator skeleton face, like we saw with the robot Sky High fell in love with.

What you don't like them saying the name of the hero team she just saw? How else was she supposed to react? If I expected anybody to be taking issue with anything about the scarf girl talking it was that she had by far the cutesiest possible voice they could have given her.

It was the "It's a bird. . .It's a plane. . .It's Superman!" moment.

What is that? It's Wild Tiger.... and Barnaby!

Very cool moment as they're having their motorcycle chase through the city.


As for Red Tiger... I think an enhanced Mr. Legend cyborg clone would draw Lunatic into the fight. Maverick's trump card, his original ideal hero made better through cybernetics. Bwahahaha! Unstoppable juggernaut of superpowers... a perfect adversary for a superhero team.

I was going to make this same reference but figured that M7 was too old. But yeah, I'd have to echo the sentiment that her voice was too high-pitched.

What's under the helmet? I'd go with empty space also. I wouldn't put it past Maverick to want to use a remote-controlled powersuit on some NEXT. And he's using Black Tiger to test drive the design.

Either that or some NEXT we have yet to see in action.

I too am hoping for something that pisses off Lunatic. I really like it when he uses his powers.

NEXT episode preview:-

- Who is inside Dark Tiger Suit? Could this be an android Kotetsu Or maybe someone else?
- What is Mr. Maverick's NEXT conspiracy be? Use the Prototype Tiger to Kidnap Kaede?
- Can Kotetsu save Barnaby from mind-scrambling Maverick? OR will it be WORSE for him?!
- Where's Lunatic/Yuri where we needed him after we've seen him on last ep21.


HERO TV was a sham really. Maverick was actually behind everything & I really should've known, really.

God, this is really trying my patience, really. Only 3 episodes to go.

im thinking that the ending scenario will be like Maverick is about to get arrested by Tiger and Bunny but Lunatic comes and want to kill Maverick and then brawl starts to the death between the 3 lol, and who knows maybe on that battle confusion then Maverick will be able to hide and run then that will be the trigger for season 2 lol good theory heh?

There is still Ouroboros and Lunatic to deal with for season 2. They have a lot of cards to play. I think at the end of this series Hero TV will be no more because I think most of the crimes were scripted by Maverick and Ouroboros for the show.

What would become of the Heroes? Maybe just being normal heroes because they like to and not for a job perhaps?

And NEW Heroes & NEW Villians too like Kaede who should need some more character development. Even the series could end where the new mysterious character shows up & turn out to be a new CEO and quoted from 1989 Batman:-

"As a great man once said, 'Wait till they get a load of me'"

That or perhaps a "crispy critter" original Mr. Legend could be fun. I half expect it to be an empty suit running on some sort of autopilot or something like that to force Barnaby back into his old suit.

Now that I think about it... Judging from his comments during this episode it sounds like Saito wasn't involved in the design of the new suits. Yet they still kept that useless "Good Luck Mode" feature in there?!?

They also fixed various mistakes in animation (re: Kotetsu glowing with power when it wasn't supposed to be activated), plus made some details a bit shinier.

I doubt it. After all, while there may be some corruption with Maverick, given what we've seen in the first half, there's quite a numbers of crimes that don't smell like something that Maverick would have set up for ratings. While the skyscraper bombing attempt and the Jake Martinez incident definitely smells like something Maverick would do, other incidents (i.e. the kid who controlled the giant statue, the diamond-bodied jewel theif, the sisters that tried to kidnap the mayor's son) are just normal thugs who use their NEXT powers to commit crimes.
