We’re officially down to the wire, folks. Only two episodes left in the series, and yet there’s more going on than anyone can keep up with. And now that we’re so close to the end, are we finally going to get the answers to the questions that we’ve been asking since the very beginning? Well, you can judge for youselves from these episode summaries:
Episode 47 – The Red Crack, Satisfaction, and Eiji’s Vessel
Dr. Maki wants Ankh to go berserk to end the world so plans to insert Core Medals inside Ankh. Eiji breaks Cores and try to prevent the devouring of humans. But Maki wants Eiji to go berserk as well and inserts Medals inside him as well.
When Maki prepares the final act, Ankh intervenes, but because of that his Core Medals are taken away, which is a threat to his existence. The injured and exhausted Eiji is found by Satonaka, she takes him to Kougami Foundation. Eiji develops a desire with power and Kougami prepares a lot of Cell Medals in front of him.
On the other hand, Hina tells Chiyoko about the relationship between Eiji, Ankh and Shingo. Chiyoko accepts the facts and encourages Hina. And because of that Hina decides to…?
Episode 48 – Kamen Rider OOO’s Final Episode
Uva regains all 9 of his Core Medals and is complete, the process of ending the world is starting. Maki wants Uva to go berserk and keeps on inserting Core Medals inside him. Uva gets annoyed and escape. Birth fights with the Complete Uva.
Eiji without any Medals, asks Kougami for help. Kougami hands Eiji the power to save the world, the King’s Core Medals (王が持っていたコアメダル). OOO appears in front of Birth, together with Ankh, they fight Uva. But Ankh does not tell the others that his Core Medals are slowly breaking…
So, what does all of this mean? Well, to sum it up as best as I can, 1.) we’ll finally learn secrets about the original OOO, the King from 800 years ago, 2.) somewhere around the end of the next episode, Maki will strip Eiji of all his Core Medals, including the PuToTyra cores, possibly reverting him back to a human, 3.) Uva will be the final “boss” in the series, though no word on what will happen to Maki just yet, and 4.) Ankh will fight alongside OOO/Eiji in the end, but it might cost him his life…
As for the King’s Core Medals, I don’t know what they are, there hasn’t been anything said about them, no images leaked showing what they could be, so we’ll just have to watch to find out.
And despite the direction the story seems to be taking, I really hope that it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger that won’t be resolved until the OOOxFourze Movie!
