10:26– It is not made clear if Yuko (Ryo’s girlfriend) was pushed to the pit or if she had slipped.

Those twins were the same ones who portrayed Fara’s “twin dolls” in Bioman episode 9.

I wonder why the Takeru and the others had to swim to the island when they could have just boarded the Mask Fighter, Gyro and Jet so easily whereas Kenta could have hitched a ride with any of them.

The 1989 Tagalog dub was inaccurate. This episode precedes the Igam ball in episode 50 and the torn book pages from another episode– both hinting Zeba’s true identity and secret weaknesses.

Actress Mina Asami looks way more glamorous as a helmetless Igam– assuming she is wearing a wig since Princess Ial is obviously the one with Mina’s real hair.

It is remarkable how most sentai finale episodes (eg: Maskman, Flashman, Bioman, Battle Fever, etc) are shot near Mount Fuji. Is there any cultural reference and/or relevance to this? It must mean something very dear and/or precious to the producers, directors and writers.

It is quite noticeable and intriguing why Okerampa NEVER sowed up in this episode and what fate became of him.

15:31 That look on Igam’s face was obviously NOT because “she was secretly in love”with Baraba, as stated/claimed in some other blogs in the early 2000’s, but it was more obvious that she feared she would die next just like Fumin and Oyubur in the succeeding episodes.
