Welcome to Kyoto. In this two parter, our heroes go hunting for dynasaurs in the ever prominent Edo period set. The villains also kind of learn why screwing with time isn’t the best option. And Asuka and Jeanne’s plot thickens! Fun all around.
Episode 12 Notes:
Clock – The Giganoid this time is named for Haydn Symphony No. 101, ‘Clock’.
“The “Lone Wolf and Cub”?” – This whole sequence with Daigoro and his mysterious father is referencing a manga that Yukito calls by name. Which you can read about here.
“The Abarenbo Shogun?!” – Ryoga is making a reference to an extremely popular period drama and character, Abarenbo Shogun. If that name seems slightly familiar to you, it’s because the show had a cameo/crossover role in the OOO summer movie (and apparently featured in the new Battride War).
“To protect the princess, I’d go three for the kill!” – Ryoga makes a last second reference at the end of the preview, to yet another period drama: ‘Sanbiki ga Kiru!’ or ‘Three for the Kill!’. More about it here.
Bracchio’s Line – “To protect a small life, the flames of love and courage will burn-bra!”
This comes directly from the Denziman opening.
Episode 13 Notes:
Surprisingly, there’s really no notes to make on this episode since everything is carried over from episode 12. Not even a Bracchio one liner.
See you guys next week!
