  • Joukaen's story.

    Going in, it was obvious that Tatsuya wasn't going to be blown to bits by Fire Phoenix as was the cliffhanger at the end of the previous episode. Even if the series is nearly over, the star isn't going to get splattered all over the road. I was all ready to shoot Q-suke down for collaborating with the enemy, but its trick of demonstarting its powers to the Three Commanders as a way of letting Rescue Fire into the base was pretty clever. I only wonder why it needed Gaia Leon at all, as Q-suke could have lowered the safety shield at any time. The most interesting parts of the episode center around Joukaen and his backstory. We learn that as well as sueing for peace in ancient times, he was friends with the human warrior. He came to despise humans when he was sealed, apparently by the warrior who betrayed him. This obviously serves as his motivation for attacking humans throughout the series, yet the biggest surprise was that it was actually Donkaen who betrayed him as a way of getting him out of the way. Learning this turns Joukaen against Donkaen after a spectacular battle against Fire1 X and Rescue King. There's some great dialogue through out all of this with some good points made, such as Joukaen saying that humans only uses fire to make war on themselves. I really enjoyed this episode and serves to both give Joukaen a good send off and round out his story as well as lead into Donkaen's final battle with Rescue Fire.moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Ritsuka: Tatsuya! Stop! Don't be reckless!
      Yuma: That's right! Now that the captain is a hostage, Fire1 needs to have his act together! Tatsuya! That's you!
      Tatsuya: I'm really sorry...
      Yuma: Let's go.

    • Joukaen: What a pity! I was so close to freezing Fire1! But that's fine. Instead of quickly killing him off, I'll let him watch humanity be destroyed.
      Taiga: Joukaen, why are you trying to destroy humanity!?
      Joukaen: Why!? You guys make weapons and try to destroy each other, don't you? You use our falmes as tools for fighting! I am merely imitating you humans.

    • Q-suke: Wait! Don't crush me! I'll give you something good if you let me go!
      Ukaen: Good?
      Q-suke: Gaia Leon!
      Ukaen: That giant lion robot?
      Q-suke: He's my little brother, so he does whatever I say.
      Sakaen: He'll even be our servant?
      Q-suke: He can. Then you guys will be stronger. Joukaen will have no problem.
      Ukaen: Wait a moment! This sounds too good to be true.
      Chukaen: Yeah! Why would he help us?
      Q-suke: Because I have no chance of winning. Fire Phoenix, the Vehicles, and Fire Suits have all been taken. I'm giving in.
      Ukaen: Just what you'd expect from a robot! How cold!

    • Taiga: Fire1 wants to fight one on one. He heard about Joukaen's past. Fire1 is praying that Joukaen's heart still carries that sentiment. if it's there, then Fire1 might be able to awaken it.

    • Joukaen: Fire1 X, I want to ask you something. What are comrades?
      Tatsuya: Comrades are those who share a bond between their hearts and trust each other!
      Joukaen: Wrong! Bonds do not exist! For their own benefit... comrades exist to betray you!
      Tatsuya: You're wrong!
      Joukaen: What!?
      Tatsuya: We support each other! Encourage each other! We can work this hard because we have comrades!
      Joukaen: How naive!
      Tatsuya: Why!? Remember your past! You wished for peace! You tried desperately to stop the human-Jakaen war!
      Joukaen: Shut up! Speaking of which, very long ago, there was a human like you... As my friend, we swore we'd create a world without war. What do you think happened!? He betrayed me, sealing me and Donkaen creating a world of endless war! I was wrong to try to reason with you ugly beings! I will never...

    • Joukaen: Then why do you fight?
      Tatsuya: To protect my precious comrades!
      Joukaen: So you're risking your life to protect the foolish humans!? What nonsense!

    • Joukaen: Now, finish me off.
      Tatsuya: In the past, you tried to save the humans and Jakaen from war. We're the same. You have a Rescue Soul.
      Joukaen: I have a Rescue Soul!? Don't bullshit me! Hurry and finish me off! You will regret it if you let me live!
      Tatsuya: I won't. My comrades feel the same way. The fighting is over, Joukaen!

    • Joukaen: Donkaen, can you hear me!? Remember the past! Let's try to talk with the humans again! Rescue Fire can be trusted. They will not betray us!
      Donkaen: Always pitiful, Joukaen. I will never forgive those who side with the humans! Let me tell you something good before the end. I'm the one who deceived the humans into sealing you!
      Joukaen: What!? So the one who betrayed me... was you!?
      Donkaen: After you were sealed, I planned to destroy the humans.
      Joukaen: So the one I should have hated... wasn't the humans!?
