Isana of the Ocean

Just found what I wrote down way back when the episode aired.

GUYS Ocean was first mentioned in episode 3 so I think their appearance was long overdue. I was not disappointed. I love everything about this episode. Seawinger made an impressive debut, and I especially love Isana's character. Crew GUYS clumsily and valiantly trying to cover up when someone (Mirai) inadvertently giving away Mebius's identity was hilarious (although a bit over the top), and more so when it was revealed by the end of the episode that Isana already knew from the beginning.

Due to my inability to understand much Japanese, I don't know why Isana wanted to keep the fact that he was a captain a secret. However, the history he had with Araiso seems to be interesting.

Mebius's final cutting was so cool (poor Arigera), as well as the one he used to save Isana. Missed Mebius's transformation scene but since it's a stock footage anyway maybe I haven't missed much.

I never expected to even like Isana (portrayed by Kohei Murakami), considering that I totally disliked Masato Kusaka (Murakami's character in Kamen Rider 555), not to mention the preview made Isana looked somewhat like a bad guy. The fact that I totally love Isana says a lot about Murakami's acting ability. Isana is such a fun character to watch and I would really love for him to return in future episodes.

Crew GUYS Japan, you guys should be grateful that Isana is such a good guy; he even lied (I think) to his own follower to keep Mebius's secret.

Hi, randomly surfed in when friend pointed out that you have Moebius posts in your journal. It's so exciting to find another Moebius fan! Would you mind if I friended you?

Bunch of random comments:
I don't know why Isana wanted to keep the fact that he was a captain a secret.

He didn't want to make the rest of the team nervous, which he thought they would be if they knew.

It was weird... I had just gotten to Kaizaa in KR 555, so I didn't recognize Murakami-san specifically, just a vague feeling of "haven't I seen him somewhere before?" I like him a lot better as Isana. (Who totally rocks!)

he even lied (I think) to his own follower to keep Mebius's secret.

Yes, he did. Flat-out. Er, that episode is on the iPod, so...

Underling: Captain, you said that Moebius might be part of GUYS Japan. So, what about that?

Isana: That was a joke. You thought I was serious?

Underling: What? I really don't understand what you're thinking, Captain.

Isana: If you can't tell, then you won't become captain. *thinks* Until next time, GUYS Japan. Until next time, Moebius.

Thank you for answering in details. In that whole scene with the underling I caught only the word 'joke/joking' and made my own conclusion.

Personally, I couldn't stand Kusaka (way too creepy for my taste), but I agree that Isana totally rocks.

Please feel free to friend me. I read your journal too. I haven't commented only because I am very, very shy. Still, if you haven't posted, I would have asked to friend you eventually.

I forgot to mention earlier, please feel free to friend me. And you're welcome to comment, too. I always like hearing from fellow fans! :)

I did friend you (that was you down there right?) Thanks.

And I forgot to ask this last night. If it's not too much trouble, I was wondering what Isana said after Mirai ran back to the control room and the whole team scrambled nervously to cover up (yet again) and before they do the demonstration using Birdon as a model. (Hope this isn't too confusing.)

Thanks again.

Yeah, sorry, that was me. I didn't realize that computer wasn't logged in.

Uh, short version... Mirai says that Arigena (or however it's spelled) is calling Moebius. Isana says that he was thinking the same thing. He noticed in the fight before as soon as Moebius showed up, Arigena immediately turned and went after him. Now Arigena is in the deep, dark depths trying to summon Moebius. George complains that is no place for a fight, and Isana says they have to summon Arigena up from the ocean. Which leads into the demonstration with Birdon. (Which was way too cute, in my opinion. But then, I am easily amused.)

Thank you for the explanation. It makes everything much more clear now.

According to the episode, the monster name is Arigera. Since I couldn't figure out the name from their pronounciation of it, I paused the video (about a dozen times, I was that determined) when the name (in English) showed up on the GUYS monitor (or on the Seawinger monitor, I can't remember which) and wrote it down.

And I also found the Birdon demonstration very, very cute. Loved whatever they used to model Blue Whale. I honestly can't tell what it is, but it sort of resembles a real blue whale (more than Blue Whale does in my opinion).
