Mai on the other hand is just a patient that Hiiro was nice to - hooking them up would be even more random and gratuitous than Gou's sudden obsession with Reiko, because they don't have that shared background to create a story out of. (Unless Toei suddenly makes something up where Mai tragically lost her boyfriend who with his last words told her to be the best traditional dancer the world has ever seen; but yeah, that would be a complete ass-pull. At least the Mach novel and movie worked with what Reiko had actually been given in the TV series.)

    Ep 19 throws the Parado and Emu dynamic a bit since we know it's not the Bugster that Parado is drawn to. Even if you cling to the "M is Emu's real personality!" theory, it's undeniable that Parado tried to stop Dan from telling Emu the truth. Surely if it were the Bugster he was concerned about, he would WANT the human to crack and disappear under the strain of the virus?
    That's true. I guess there's no way to know for sure if Toei plans to Level Up the relationship.

    Palad's obsession with Emu but not M is strange since M would be a more challenging opponent. What does he see in Emu, I wonder.

    ^ It's all part of the mystery - like why he wants Kamen Rider Chronicle completed despite hating Dan

    The trailer for ep 21 makes it seem like Masamune Dan is an ally to the heroes; he asks Emu "Can you stop my son?" That could be deliberately misleading but he apparently tells Emu the truth, he already told Kiriya the truth, and the fact he got caught for something and sent to jail suggests he isn't very good at covering his tracks. I get the feeling he won't be Chronos, even if Dan isn't either. Also this week Taiga repeated to Nico that she can't continue holding a grudge against Emu now she knows she lost to the Bugster and not him. This seems to also disprove the "M is Emu's original personality" theory - but on the other hand, that means it's not true that his "dream" (being kidnapped and infected by Pac-Man) happened the night after the tournament. So when did that happen?

    ^ Maybe M infected Emu in the operation performed by Hinata 16 years ago. That's when he became interested in games. But Kuroto claims Emu was infected 6 years ago in Pac-Man's operation and he had vague involvement in Hinata's operation so he must be hiding something. Masamune probably knows the truth.

    ^ Pac-Man definitely did something involving the virus, since contact with the virus transported him and his team to Game World. But for all we know, Emu could have been infected before that and Pac-Man was just experimenting on him. That wouldn't explain why it took eleven years rather than one year before "Zero Day" happened and the virus broke out on a mass scale ... unless Pac-Man just made the virus worse?

    ^ That's plausible. The Bugster virus could have been contained inside Emu for 10 years and Pac-Man's operation caused it to spread to the 10 games that started Zero Day. It was likely the same operation that allowed Emu to henshin without the compatibility operation.

    just saw ep 20. this time, it's a male student turno into a bugster like last week's ep but it was a woman

    i like Snipe's new power-up which is the reverse since Hiro use the same one for his Taddlke Fantasy

    Snipe's one is based on submarine and shoot em up related games
