Important things that happened
- Ryuuji suspects there's an ulterior reason for Jin's avatar taking on his appearance from 13 years ago.
- When the Metaroid shows the Busters' their fears they are: A giant chicken, zombies for Ryuuji, and the ghost from Jin's story for Youko. In Hiromu's case, he freezes from it.
- Rousou = Candle
- Voiced by Nanba Keiichi 難波圭一
- Motif - A candle
- Metavirus: KOWAGARASERU (To scare) 怖がらせる」
- Code number: A-96
- Ideal Environment - Midnight
On the front of the monster's body is the name of his Metavirus:
His speech quirk is to say "rousouku / candle".
- Type Alpha
- Augmentations - Candle head, Super Chaka Gun (A Chakaman is a brand of lighter)
- Main command - Stealing from the Enetron Tank and transferring the contents to the subdimension.
Ghost lady - ? (Theory: Nakamura Miho's actress)
- Jin tells a ghost story at the beginning, saying it's traditional for bon summer festivals. In Japanese this is called a kaidan, one famous of which is irkingly romanized to: Kwaidan. The particular story that he's telling is The ghost story of Okiku.
- "Kaidan also frequently involve water as a ghostly element. In Japanese religion, water is a pathway to the underworld as can be seen in the festival of Obon." From the Japanese wiki on Kaidan.
- Speaking of bon (Japanese for lanterns), Escape picks a lantern out of the river at the beginning. She installs a fear Metavirus into the bon's candle. Summer true is the time for Japanese ghost stories.
- Because of J's habit of covering up Jin, Jin is unaffected by Rousokuroid's hypnotism. For the first time, Jin tells J to cover him up. As soon as the first is out at the end of the episode, Jin is back to telling J to not cover him. What a fickle man Jin is.
- The Metaroid sees a news broadcast warning people about an approaching Megazord. The TV station is called TV Azuma. Azuma is Japanese for "east, eastern Japan". It sort of sounds like TV Asahi, the channel that Go-Busters is broadcast on. However, meaningwise, it seems to fit TV-Tokyo better since Tokyo is known as the "eastern capital".
- In the battle at TV Azuma, Ryuuji and Escape end up fighting on a set with fake walls and other stuff. When Ryuuji is shot down, he falls next to a sign that says "No outsiders allowed in here."
- The preview in this episode is voiced by the Buddyroids this time.
- "Blue Banana Moon" is used for the ending song for the first time. Now all three of the main Busters' character songs have been played.
- Jin's archaic phrase "Demo mo suto mo nai" is from the Showa era. It seems like it's a combination of "demonstration" and "strike" but the original meaning isn't clear: Japanese explanation. But the usage is clear, you say that in response to someone going "But..." to mean "No buts!"
