This episode makes it really obvious that Shota is really just a prototype of Juspion. Actual production wouldn't have started yet (Juspion wouldn't premiere until five months after this episode was broadcast), and Toei probably wanted to give the title character a test-run.
Reminder: the patch and mkv use the new 10-bit DVD9 raws. The script will work perfectly with both the old and new raws.
Also, if anyone has the cod-e DVD, please let me know either here, on Twitter (@ fortmax or @bunnyhat), or in the irc channel (#guis on rizon.net, and I'll either be FortMax or FortMaxedOut). The cod-e videos are the last things I need to finish my Kamen Rider W encodes, and the limited DVD is the only way to get them since they weren't included in the Video Rider releases.
