Episode Summary

EDIT
Destruction, Motives, And The Eel Whip (Hakai to Riyū to Unagi Muchi)
AIRED:
Akira and Ankh end up in competition over the rights to collect the Cell Medals after the Kuwagata Yummy is destroyed. Later that night at the Cous Coussier, Eiji and Ankh talk about how the Kuwagata Yummy was created. The two realize that Rei has two desires, both represented by the split of the Kabuto Yummy into the Kuwagata Yummy. Goto introduces himself to Date, but doesn't learn anything about him except that he hates Maki's doll. After training hard, Goto collapses in the now Egyptian themed Cous Cossier. Eiji and Ankh go to the dojo to ask Rie why she wants to be stronger and what she was going to do. Akira arrives and reveals that she has a crush on Sensei Masaru and wants to get rid of anyone who steals him from her, including his soon-to-be wife. Uva appears with several Waste Yummy. While Eiji, Ankh and Akira fight them, Rie runs off to find the Yummy herself. Rie tries to fight the Kuwagata Yummy but Kamen Rider Birth saves her. Eiji soon follows and becomes OOO. The two Kamen Riders fight the Yummy with Uva evening the numbers. While Birth takes some of Uva's Cell Medals, OOO uses the Unagi Medal to transform into Takautar Combo to fight the Kuwagata Yummy. Birth then destroys it with his Breast Cannon, only to find Ankh trying to steal Cell Medals from his container. Rie is relieved that the Yummy is gone and Masaru is happy. Akira refuses to work with Eiji and Ankh, although he is impressed by them.moreless

    You could be forgiven after the last episode for thinking that Akira Date is a money grabber only interested in looking after himself and not protecting the world as Eiji does. While this is true, this episode shows that there is more to him than that; he understands desire and helps Rei, the Yummy host, to come to terms with her feelings, eventually leading to the defeat of the Kuwagata Yummy. Kougami's return reveals that he has decided to abandon Core Medal research and focus on Cell Medals, hence Birth using them as his power source and ammunition. Of note is that this is the first time that OOO uses a blue Core Medal, gaining whippy arms like an eel. I liked seeing both OOO and Birth fighting together against a Yummy, although something tells me this won't always be the case if the parting scene at the end of the episode is anything to go by.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Narrator: Kamen Rider OOO! The three things that happened last time... One: Kamen Rider Birth, Akira Date, appears. Two: A Yummy is born from the desire of a girl who goes to a kendo dojo. And three: The Yummy splits in two!

    • Akira: I'm going to earn 100 million yen. From now on, I'll be taking all the Cell Medals. Alright?
      Eiji: Just because you say "alright" doesn't mean...
      Ankh: All I can do is laugh if you're going to underestimate us that much.
      Eiji: Ummm... you can't exchange Medals for money.
      Akira: I know. But I'll be rewarded for my work. That's why I'm going to take the one that got away as well. Just letting you know in advance, hope you don't mind.
      Ankh: Bullshit! Like I'll give up any more! The next one's mine!

    • Eiji: It's foolish for us to struggle over the Medals. If we did that during battle, it'd be dangerous.
      Akira: Yes. It is foolish, isn't it? Struggling over stuff like this. But if you flip that... It'd be more weird and dangerous to me to be fighting for nothing. Later!

    • Uva: Don't stop your desire. Just wait, this is the true desire you wish for.
      Rei: My... desire...

    • Eiji: Can't find the Yummy.
      Ankh: Did it go really far away, or does it not have enough Medals?
      Eiji: Not enough? You mean the desire hasn't been fulfilled? It said it wanted to be stronger, but... why did the Yummy split?
      Ankh: I don't know. It's my first time seeing that too.
      Eiji: Maybe... she has another desire? She wants strength, but... if she has a reason for wanting that strength, then that might be her real desire.
      Ankh: So the desire has a two-part structure? It is a possibility.

    • Goto: Pardon me. I'm the captain of the Ride Vendor Platoon 1, Shintaro Goto.
      Akira: Oh! You're from the organization? Oh, sorry. (opening his container) I've only collected this many Medals...
      Goto: That's not it. I just wanted to know what kind of person Birth's user is.
      Akira: What kind of person? (straightens his clothes) This kind of person!
      Goto: No... I'm sorry.
      Akira: Hey, wait. What to have some oden for dinner? Well, that professor doesn't allow food in his lab. And there's that weird doll. (holds his arms out slightly and rolls his eyes back) Looks like this right? No? Maybe more like this? Or this? Or this?
      (Goto walks away)

    • Goto: But if I cast my pride away, it's all over! Just where is the pride in someone as reluctant as me!?

    • Eiji: (entering to dojo) I told you to take them off!
      Ankh: Give it back! (puts his shoe back on)

    • Rei: The reason I want to be stronger?
      Eiji: Yeah. At first I thought you wanted to be stronger for kendo. But the monster who appeared later said... Is there something that you possibly want to destroy? I'm sorry. I'm sure you don't want to tell others about your desire. But if we knew that, we'd be able to find the monster and stop it.
      Rei: I... don't know anything.
      Ankh: hey! We're in a hurry! Stop wasting my time!
      Eiji:Ankh, stop it!
      Ankh: What if Date gets there first!?
      Akira: Too bad. I'm here already.

    • Akira: I've already done my research in advance. Rei Shiratori. (on Eiji and Ankh) I'm not as dense as these guys here. Sorry if this comes off as blunt. Let's talk about the base of all this. Why is a girl so desperate? What reason would cause her to fret so much? That could only be one thing! Right?
      Eiji: The base for the desire?
      Ankh: So that's what's going on. A pretty standard desire.
      Eiji: (looking confused) Hey! You know what it is? What?
      Ankh: Hey. Are you serious?
      Eiji: (realizing) I see! You mean love!
      Akira: Those with no delicacy should be quiet. Okay?
      Eiji: I'm sorry! I see... that's right... Why didn't I realize it sooner?
      Akira: The desire to be stronger... the desire to destroy something... they both come from the same feeling, right? So, the thing you want to destroy happens today. It will start soon.

    • Rei: I'm awful! Sensei's... I want to ruin Sensei's wedding.
      Akira: Why not? If you want to destroy it, then destroy it. But... do it with your own hands.

    • Akira: Rei, there's something I want too. 100 million yen! I'm just soaked in desire! But I made a decision! To make that happen, I won't get any help from others. And one more thing! No matter what, I won't do something to make myself cry.
      Rei: Make myself cry?
      Akira: Right! Other people crying is plenty. I just wanted to tell you that.

    • Rei: I'm an idiot. I thought if I were stronger, Sensei would stay with me. Even if it was a lie, I was happy about it. I meant to properly celebrate it with him.

    • Kougami: Dr. Maki! Happy birthday, new year!
      Maki: My. President, it seems you enjoyed your holiday?
      Kougami: It was wonderful! And my goal from long ago was accomplished!
      Erika: (holding a giraffe figure) This is a souvenir from the president.
      Kougami: So how is Birth? How is the man I picked?
      Maki: He's in battle currently.
      Kougami: That is wonderful! Looks like giving up on controlling the Core Medals and specializing on Cell Medals was the right decision.
      Maki: Well, that's... for now, I need to make up for the 5000 Cell Medals that were lost last year.
      Kougami: That's right! For the Core Medals, there's OOO! For the Cell Medals, there's Birth! It's perfect!

    • Eiji: Date, is there any way we can fight together?
      Akira: Nope!
      Eiji: That was a fast response.
      Akira: It's because you're the type who makes yourself cry.
      Eiji: Eh? Is that so?
      Akira: Well, it's just a feeling I have. Later!
