Looks fun, and all...now here's hoping something actually happens here to get this rivalry off the ground. I'm going to keep my expectations low however.

I don't care about Trip, but Adeku looks really entertaining and quite funny. Looks to be a good episode.

You know, I wonder if Adeku even remembers Trip. It would be funny if he didn't.

Adler needs to do something extensive to benefit the rivalry in this episode. Right now my main concern is that somehow Iris is going to be thrust in their "rivalry" again,, when it get's mentioned that she won the Don Battle tournament against Ash. Further pulling this rivalry down the shitter. He'll probably be interested in Cilan to, maybe...however I see the former as almost a definite mention.

So here's hoping they cut straight to the Adler talk, and not mention the tournament because it won't benefit the rivalry at all. But the chances of that happening are slim.

Don't really see see how Iris derailed the rivalry. Dento's the one who really fucked it up, by beating Shuuti Satoshi's biggest threat easily and I'm still surprised I haven't heard any complaining about that. But, whatever I suppose those are the golden standands I suppose.



Anyway Adeku looks awesome, he's looks so fun and carefree playing around in Junsa's motorcycle, he looks real entertaining. One of the things about Shirona I felt would have made her better were if we saw her acting more fun and playful ya know? I'm glad we have a playful champion, and I defiantly feel I'll like him a bit more then I like Shirona since he does seem to be affecting the rivalry a lot and Shuuti at least "cares" for Satoshi with the nudging and conflict.

Cilan didn't win the entire tournament, and Trip has never really outright expressed an interest in battling Cilan. Nothing got "fucked up" with Cilan beating Trip. However, that is the case with Trip expressing an interest in Iris, and then having her win a tournament that several rivals, and Ash himself entered in episodes later. If it is brought up, he'll clearly be more interested in Iris, than Cilan or his actual rival..Ash.

Iris doesn't need to interfere with their rivalry in this episode as it desperately needs a boost. Therefore, I think it would be best to not have the tournament be brought up at all and have the episode focus entirely on Ash/Trip/Adler. The same goes for Cilan. However, the reason I bring Iris up is because of past interaction.

Having Adler mention something about Ash, while excluding Trip from his compliments , for example..would be a good start to actually have this rivalry have some tension.

I was looking at the situation in the way most people did. Since, it was stated clearly and quite often that having Iris beat Shuuti in the Don Battle Tournament or having her beat him at all would and I quote "fuck up" the rivalry. Dento pulled the exact same thing, so it really does astound me that there hasn't been any complaining thus far about that. Because having Iris or Dento beat Shuuti would supposedly "take away" from the rivalries intensity and drive. But, still it's suprising there hasn't been any. But, you do make a very good point about Iris's win not being mentioned.

If I remember correctly Shuuti expressed a interest in Dento, before with him being a gym leader and with his battling style. ^^;

The discussion of whether or not you feel Shootie's rivalry has been derailed by either Iris or Dent can fit in nicely here. Please get back to discussing the episode.
