Kamen Rider Kiva Episode 10

Sabre Dance: Glassy Melody

This episode is easily the most emotional one so far.

Picking up from the fight between the frog Fangire and Kamen Rider Ixa since last week, Wataru intervenes and saves the Fangire which in human form, is Omura, the person helping him out with his violin-making skills.

Knowing that Omura will not harm anyone because of the agreement between him and Wataru's father in 1986, Wataru tries to persuade Keisuke to stop his hunt. Keisuke is of course extremely unhappy with Wataru's move. As Omura goes into his Berserker state again at a construction site, Wataru tries to stop him without killing him. However, at the end of the show, Kamen Rider Ixa mercilessly finishes off Omura with his ultimate sword move.

Other interesting points:
- Ixa's pistol/sword combo
- the first episode with the complete absence of Megumi
- Kivat-bat the 3rd fights better than Wataru XD
- Ixa's whistle

With the death of Omura the frog Fangire, we'll be getting a new character and Fangire next week. But that's not the main focus though, because...

kiva10_19 kiva10_20's going to be Ixa versus Kiva next week!

Will Keisuke find out who's behind Kiva's mask as well?

Also, Ixa's bike will be featured as well in next week's episode as well.


Finally, the only alternate form not used by Kiva yet is Dogga. No sign of this form being used next week, so I supposed we'll have to wait a little longer before we get to see him in action.

A major overhaul to all the body armors on Kiva. Looks awesome ^^
