Excuse me while I go gouge my eyes out. No, I don’t feel like summarizing. I knew this was going to happen, it wasn’t anywhere near as bad as it could’ve been (and I’m grateful for that) but this was the episode that I had been dreading. It just happened later into the series than I would’ve expected. The last episode is going to have to be pretty darned good to save the series for me. Now, I didn’t dislike this episode nearly as much as I disliked 35, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t bad. Maybe there were a few redeeming qualities, such as Quake’s transformation being kinda hot, (and Magma’s reaction to seeing the new Quake) but other than that… eww. Especially the ending…
Edit: Also, I wish the fight would’ve ended this week, because there’s still way too much to be covered. At this rate, they’re going to need a second season. (Oops, forgot to put that part originally)

Now, why don’t I just display some random fanart I did last night so that there’s something of substance in this post. >_< I hate Beerain.

ok whats with the attatude tl-chan? i know i haven’t been on this blogsite that long but you’ve never acted like this since i’ve been here. so whats eating you? i mean in my opinion THIS WAS THE BEST EPISODE YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i mean we see quake transform and see his battle spider dagger and it’s left with a total cliffhanger because even though hunter is the main charactar it looked like he got destroyed. HOW COULD YOU NOT HINK THIS WAS AN AWSOME EPISODE!!!!!!!!!! . . . . . . . . . . sorry i guess i got carried away about the episode oh i got to go i have to finish my homework. oh tl-chan i’m kinda sad because ever since i saw the episode this mourning i was really really looking foward to your post but you didn’t put a summary 4 caps. *sad sigh* i don’t know whats up with you right now but i really wish it didn’t affict spider riders:(


Comment by Michele 04.22.07 @ 5:49 pm

@Michele- I’m sorry. Maybe I’ll write more for this episode another time. Basically, this is an oppinion-based blog (if it’s a good resource, that’s only by coincidence), and I’ve done posts without summaries before. Spider Riders is lucky, seeing how with some shows that I cover, I leave out the summary part more often. It depends on
1)How stressed I am with outside things
2)How sick/healthy I am (I suffer from depression and I’m most likely anemic)
3)How much I have to say.
Cases number two and three affected my post this time. As I didn’t have a lot of positive things to say, I wasn’t going to turn this into a flame post. I try not to be a mean person and so I didn’t want to go on any further.

In any case, I’m having a bad day, Spider Riders only has partially to do with it, and so that’s the way it has to be right now. Normally, I try to be a cheerful person, but I need to have my off-days from time to time. Again, I apologize.

hey the writing changed. thats weird

Comment by Michele 04.22.07 @ 6:49 pm

Hey TL Chan, i hope you feel better for the LAST EPISODE in one week! Wow, the days pass by quick. Well, i wasn’t a huge fan of this episode, but it was alright.
Time for my post.

1. Once more, Sparkle was awesomely cute. The only thing i have against her is from the Ghost Spider episode, because it ruined H/C’s chance to dance.

2. Really Hunter, i mean, look at Mantid. You have NO CHANCe against him without the Oracle Keys. I was hoping Corona would get more worried, and use her powers, and i was hoping that buguese would get to them, and most of all i was hoping that the whole episode would end with the end of the fight.

3. When the Oracle had a tear, i felt really bad. It all gets so much sadder than it used to be! I guess i haven’t enjoyed the past episodes cause i’m not a big fan of fighting, and i like fighting when Corona gets worried. I like humor too in SR.

4. Grasshop sure is alot braver. But he’s still not brave enough to lose his funnyness! When he started slashing at Mantid’s attack to save Sparkle, he was going Mad! Awesome job though.

5. Aqune and Corona sure make a good team. it was almost as if Corona’s arrow of light and Aqune’s violent strike blended together. I don’t know if thats a Oracle Maiden thing, but it sure was awesome. It looks like Corona still hasn’t told Aqune yet, but it seems like they already know. The battle better end quickly, because there is a TON of stuff to explain.

6. Wow, Quake was sure impressive. Saving the manacle’s power is a smart idea too. But he really shouldn’t have used it all up. I hope he’ll be ok for the next episode, but i don’t really think we’ll need him.

7. Notice that when Aqune and Corona got hurt, and hunter yelled their names, he yelled Corona’s first!

8. I really could tell the battle wasn’t over. But, i wished it was! Now, i’m completely disgusted, and freaked out by Mantid. He is WILD!

My plans for the next episode
Looks like the next episode happens to be the last. Boy, time flies. We’ve got tons of stuff to explain, like the deal with Hunter’s grand pa, and lots more. I suspect the spider riders will get beaten up by mantid, but Corona will still get worried over hunter. SHE HAS TO! In the battle, she’ll tell Aqune they are sisters and they have to focus their powers to help hUnter. THey succeed, but Hunter isn’t strong enough. buguese comes and they’ve got tons of power.

So, that power either won’t defeat mantid, or will. If it doesn’t, the oracle will show up and save them. If it does, the Oracle will come and restore the sun. Now, will Mantid die? i sure hope so! But if Hunter turns him to good (is that p ossible?) he might restore the sun. To review this in a easier way, look at my weekly post from the last episode.

The first half will probably have the battle, and the second half will have explaining, the conclusion (Hunter will probably say never give up or something), and most of all…CORONA”S BIG CONFESSION TO HUNTER!!!! Guess what i’m looking forward to the most?

Alright, time to go then. Sigh. I don’t know if i’m happy or sad for the next episode. Although i really want to see the end and Hunter/Corona happening, i also will be sad it is done. Ok, you know what, i REALLY don’t care if its over or not, i like watching the old episodes, and the end of the series is much more important to me, so, what the heck, i want it to end as soon as possible. Sunday better come quick!

And i’m Vicky, signing out!

Comment by Vicky 04.22.07 @ 6:58 pm

@Michele- I reformatted it, because it didn’t look right.

@Vicky- thanks. I’ll get over it eventually, I think.

1. Sparkle is always cute.

2. Yeah. I’m quite diappointed that they’re stretching the fight out longer. They still have so much that needs to be covered. Hopefully, there’s only a tiny bit of fighting next week.

3. That was a sad scene. The humor seems to have disappeared, mostly.

4. Yay! Grasshop is great.

5. Corona and Aqune’s interactions are usually interesting. They do work well together.

6. Hmm… He might still do more. He is Quake after all. If not, he was cool for now.

7. XD. You’re getting as bad as me with my Buguese/Aqune, finding every possible piece of evidence. (Not that this is a bad thing.)

8. Mantid gets crazier each week.

Having been watching SR for over a year, it will be sad to see it go. At least I still have the Japanese episodes to follow. I’ll continue with the fanworks though. I’m working on a new fanfic right now.

Comment by koolcat 04.22.07 @ 7:28 pm

That ep disaponted me just a little. Not for the same reason as tl-chan, I am actully a fan of (tl-chan you’ll hate me) buguese/beerain. but the fighting is taking to long.

I did however enjoy thourghly magma and igneus (I honstly shoud learn to spell names better) joking around. I love igneus, i hope he gets over his love for Illuma.

They have so much to explain and show in the last ep. I a afraid that they will miss something, or leave it out! oh no!!!

Comment by su 04.22.07 @ 8:01 pm

oh, i also realy like quakes transformation, and seeing his spider finally. Quite intersting.

Comment by su 04.22.07 @ 8:02 pm

Mantid’s fortress seems down = no eppy from Umi = ARG. However, Quake looked so Imba! It was the hit for me.

Comment by Arnaiyus 04.22.07 @ 9:22 pm

::Quietly sulks because she missed the first post..::

Oh well.

::Then proceeds to quietly sulk because of Beerain…::

::Then proceeds to sulk because she’s sulking over Beerain who is a fictional character…::

::Feels stupid::

Anyways. ::Pat:: It’s all right… I’ve got the Beerain pictures ready for mutilation if next week is worse. I mean, next week’s got to have a bit of BA… since she’ll find out he’s alive. ::Hopes..::

Comment by Pherret 04.22.07 @ 10:40 pm

Oh… and young Quake looks like something that popped out of World of Worldcraft, with the headdress and hair. o.O And he has a funny accent.

Comment by Pherret 04.22.07 @ 10:43 pm

This week sucks…In fact the last few weeks have sucked resulting in my quietness in the Fortress. I’m sure not too many people actually miss me anyways. I haven’t watches SR for as long as I can remember…but i do love Mantid-sama, and I’m glad the episodes seem to have much of him, even though I haven’t DLed or watched them yet. I’m glad somebody said there was Buguese/Beerain, because, that is how it is anyways and so yeah…thats cute. But yeah, I don’t even really feel like watching depressing episodes, especially after being thrown around and smacked around by my stupid parents all day. But Mantid-sama =

Comment by Grasshop 04.23.07 @ 12:08 am

Quake is cool and how he’s dressed is exactly like the woman he was taking the form of in the eppy Paradise! Grasshop is the laugh of the show when he attacks. El oh el.

Comment by Arnaiyus 04.23.07 @ 2:09 am

Arnaiyus, ya your right, Quake does look like the woman he was pretanding to be. Never saw that but that is cool.

Comment by su 04.23.07 @ 10:07 am

Like the fan art. Could Aqune be any angstier?

Comment by Mary 04.23.07 @ 11:57 am

hey guys! i just watched the ep on u tube. it was great! but there is still a LOT to be explained. how on earth are they going to fit everything into the last episode? it is only half an hour long!

Comment by koolcat 04.23.07 @ 2:30 pm

So Tl chan, you are working on a fanfic? Whats it about? Remember that H/C one you wrote? Well, i read it, and iT WAS ROCKING AWESOME! You really really REALLY should’ve continued it. You really should! If you can, you should make a secual to it!

Comment by Vicky 04.23.07 @ 3:51 pm

hey where do i read this fanfic? I would like to read it.

Comment by su 04.23.07 @ 4:10 pm

@Su- I’m very afraid that they’ll leave things out of the last episode. :(
Magma and Igneous can be amusing.
Oh, and my H/C fic is here: http://z10.invisionfree.com/Mantids_Fortress/index.php?showtopic=347
I had mentioned it in the comments for episode 50.

@Ferret- Yay for mutilation! I have a little bit of hope for next week’s episode, but probably not enough. They’ll want to cover the important things first (ie: beating Mantid, explaining Corona and Aqune’s past.)

@Arnaiyus- yeah, he does kinda look like the woman from 31. The forum being down last night was highly annoying.

@Mary: Thanks :D Angst is love.

@Vicky- Yeah, I’m working on a new one. It’s this really weird idea I had concerning Aqune’s dark side (mostly because I want to see if I can believably write someone as pure as her as having a dark side), a new villain with really weird manipulation abilities, and general dramatic tension. I’ve gotten 3 chapters of it done already (but they’re not currently online.) I was going to wait until the series was over to write it, but I got bored. In any case, I’m writing myself into a bit of a hole, so I hope I can figure out how to make a happy ending,
About my H/C fic, it was really just a one-shot, as the majority of my fics are. I’ll consider writing another one in the future, if I’m ever inspired.

hmmmmmm:( *looks down at feet and gives a sad sigh*

Comment by Michele 04.23.07 @ 7:22 pm

Quake was incredible. Even Grasshop was going nuts in this ep. I’d give this ep. 7 stars out of 10.

@Pherret- Yeah Quake does look like one of those night elves from WOW.

Comment by Vicky 04.25.07 @ 3:45 pm

For the talk about the end not mentioning everything, i think that they will, but they might not show the H/C bomb at the end.

i am very happy about the new episode, but i am also very worried. what if they dont make a second season? I AM PANICKING!

Comment by koolcat 04.26.07 @ 10:14 pm

okay tl-chan you have to promise that for the last episode you have to put a big summary and a lot of caps. no matter what, okay?

Comment by Michele 04.26.07 @ 10:47 pm

@Michele- Yep. Even if it’s terrible, it is the last episode, so I will.

Comment by TL-chan 04.27.07 @ 5:18 pm

@All- Attention. This is what I call blatant advertising. Over at the Spider Riders forum is an RPG which is very much in need of new members. If anyone here is interested in roleplaying, please feel free to come and join in. Most canon characters are still open, and we’re very much in need of them (especially Mantid.) You can also create your own characters. Playing is fairly simple. I’m a newbie to roleplaying myself, but I quickly caught on. However, all players most create a bio-sheet first, which the rules for are over at the forum. That part is a bit more complicated. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Comment by TL-chan 04.27.07 @ 5:28 pm

first of all tl-chan thanks. second can you give me info please? because i don’t understand.

Comment by Michele 04.27.07 @ 6:51 pm

@Michele- Well first of all, it’s an internet RPG. Basically, you either claim a charatcer or create your own. Then you play as that character. Different scenarios come up as you play. The problem is, we can’t do much now, because we’re missing most of the cast.

Comment by TL-chan 04.27.07 @ 8:11 pm

oh okay. what does RPG mean? and can you give me the website please?

Comment by Michele 04.27.07 @ 8:47 pm

Sigh, season finale already? Has it really gone so quickly? I fear sooo much that many of our questions won’t be answered…30 hours till I see it!

Comment by Arnaiyus 04.28.07 @ 4:10 am

I don’t believe it, Teletoon doesn’t mention ANYTHNIG about the last episode. Other kids channels say “oh the last episode of blah blah is coming up tonight at 6″ but Teletoon seriously DOES NOT pay attention to our awesome show!

About the RPG whatever thing, i really want to join, but i’ve gotta wait for my parent’s permission cause they are very internet safe.

Comment by Vicky 04.28.07 @ 7:52 am

Yeah… everyone join the RP. ^.^ We -are- in severe lack of people… just we ‘n TL-chan… and GL for a short period of time, but she kind of… quit.

Comment by Pherret 04.28.07 @ 10:17 am

*me, not we

Comment by Pherret 04.28.07 @ 10:26 am

You know, what if 52 isn’t the last episode, and they changed their minds? There’s quite a lot to wrap up in 20 minutes… maybe they added another one.

Comment by Pherret 04.28.07 @ 1:00 pm

hey guys, tomorrow is Sunday! cant wait! and lets just pray they make a second season because Spider riders is an awsome show!

Comment by koolcat 04.28.07 @ 1:17 pm

you are so right Vicky! Teletoon DOESN’T mention anything about the last episode. they really should pay more attention to thier shows. I mean, what if other kids who like spider riders dont know that tomorrow is the last episode? they are going to be very disappionted if spider riders stops playing. I am so happy i found this site, because if i didn’t i never would have known tomorrow is the last ep.

Comment by koolcat 04.28.07 @ 1:24 pm

@Michele- Role Playing Game. I included the link in my comemnt above, just in the text rather than a normal link.

@Vicky- I actually noticed that they didn’t say anything, as I was looking at the teletoon site yesterday. Kinda disappointing.

@Koolcat- I’m hoping for another, but it doesn’t seem likely.

@Pherret- I considered that yesterday. Then I thought otherwise, because I think somewhere on the TV.com forums (I can’t remember which thread, but I’m thinking for some reason that it wasn’t the questions thread) the creator said something about 52 being the ending. I have no idea how the’ll pull it off though. That’s why I’ve set my expectations to zero.

Comment by TL-chan 04.28.07 @ 2:27 pm

i’m sad it’s almost the last episode.i haven’t even watched the last one.id better get started!!!HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHELE!!!!!^_^

Comment by bb/puppyface 04.28.07 @ 2:47 pm

oh okay so an online game alright. hey can you give me the website?

Comment by Michele 04.28.07 @ 6:09 pm

michele, an elder to a spider is the same thing as an elder to a human. Older person/spider. Oh and usally when eople are called elders it is meant that there respected.

Comment by su 04.28.07 @ 7:25 pm

Just because there’s a season finale for Spider Riders, doesn’t mean it marks as a series finale. There may be a possibility of a second season, but only if the japanese version gets good ratings in Japan, then there might be a slight chance of another season.

Besides, I’m getting goosebumps over the final episode of Spider Riders and after all, I’ve been recording almost every episode, except for the two episodes that were mixed up and that was “Big Bug” and “Action in Arachna”.

So anyways, let’s just hope that they (Bee Train Productions) saved the best materials (ideas) for the last episode!

Have a nice day, everyone. (^_^) And you too, TL-chan!!

patience is a virtue people. let the man do his thing.

Comment by (v-man) 04.29.07 @ 7:49 pm

@All- I’m very sorry. I haven’t gotten to see the episode yet (although I’ve heard things about it.) I expect to get the entry up tomorrow, although I’m rather disappointed by how incolnclusive it was. At least there was uber-sligth Buguese/Aqune. ^^

Comment by TL-chan 04.29.07 @ 8:44 pm

I liked some parts of this episode. Shocking to see Quake’s youthful appearance when he tranforms into a spider rider. You don’t see that one coming. I found it funny that Magma had tears in his eyes when he saw him. And Igneous’s reaction when he realized that the young man was Quake.

The thing I found more interesting about this episode was Beerain and Stags coming to help Buguese. By what Stags said in Episode 49 when he saw Buguese about to attack Mantid with Dark Opal, I was not sure if he would appear again. But he did and that was one of the things I liked about this episode.

I am really glad Beerain came back. I thought she showed a little bit more signs about being in love with Buguese. For one thing, like Stags, she forgave Buguese for turning her away in Episode 44. She even saved himfrom falling off the cliff. I thought the way she pleaded with him not to try to help the Spider Riders because he was badly injured and the way she held him up was a little romantic.

Seeing Buguese with both Beerain and Stags made this episode interesting because he had betrayed both of them. But they came back despite that.
