Whoa, we just took a major left turn. It looks like Eiji will become a Greeed! (Hmm, doesn’t that plot line sound familiar?)
At the moment, it looks like this transformation, influenced by the five purple core medals in his body, may be permanent. While he can take on a human form, he may not be able to completely revert back into a human.
And while both Eiji and Dr. Maki are dinosaur-themed Greeeds, only Maki has been label as the “Dinosaur Greeed”. Eiji is being called the “Eiji Greeed”.
And to make matters worse, Ankh has found a way to fully revive! You can see him here, with his face completed, and the place in his “belt” is now yellow.
But it’s not all bad news, as we get to see this:
That’s right, Date’s back! And he’ll be fighting alongside Gotou in the Prototype Birth suit, distinguishable by the red markings across the little gashapon capsules. Apparently, the prototype suit only has the Crane arm and the Breast Cannon, although it matches the Birth suit in strength. And it looks like that’s enough to take on a completely revived Gamel.
Looks like someone blew the costume budget before they created the prototype Birth….
And I’d like to leave you with this. It’s TaToBa with purple eyes. The effects of the purple core medals have run that far, that deep. Will Eiji ever be able to revert back to human form? Will he be like past Riders, becoming the very monster he fought against, only to fall at the end when all is said and done? Or, will he find a way to undo what has happened? And most important of all, does all of this mean that the series will end on a cliffhanger? Check back soon to find out!
