I admit that I’m a meanie, and they weren’t kidding when they said I was a… well, BITCH!
So Kiba killed the boyfriend in ep 1, who then gets up and stumbles home like a zombie before collapsing into a pile of ashes. This freaks the girlfriend out. The police come to investigate, but she insists she didn’t kill the guy. She’s pretty stressed, so she goes to Kiba and begs him to forgive her, saying it was lonely while he was in a coma. As soon as she sees a random copper though, she starts shouting that it wasn’t her that killed her boyfriend and that it was Kiba. The whole point of this of course, was so that Kiba could kill her without backlash from the audience. The boyfriend was a jerkass, and the ex-girlfriend’s turned into a bitch, so it’s A-Okay to murder them. And it is, it really is.
Meanwhile, Mari and Takumi keep getting their bags mixed up as Mari tries to annoy Takumi into becoming her bodyguard. It also turns out Takumi’s a “nekojita”, someone with “cat’s tongue”, ie someone with a sensitive mouth, so they can’t eat/drink hot foods and liquids. Anyway, an Orphenoch appears, Takumi henshins into Kamen Rider Faiz and does the Rider Kick 4tw.
We also learn that Smart Brain seems to be supporting errant Orphenoch.
Overall a much better ep than the first, though still slow going.
