Kamen Rider Kiva 仮面ライダーキバ Ep.5 Screen Caps

Episode 5 "Duet: Stalker Panic"
Wataru is in the park when he’s confronted by his neighbours about the weird smells emanating from his home. Shizuka scores a perfect 10 for her dismount on the jungle gym when she leaps to Wataru’s defence. She organized an open house concert at his home for the neighbours, but when the concert begins Wataru is so nervous performing in front of them that his violin sounds like a cat wailing and the neighbours leave in disgust. Shizuka tries to comfort him, but he suddenly thinks of asking Nago for advice. The scene switches to Megumi who’s walking on a deserted roadway, and unknowingly stalked by a Fangire. Nago approaches the stalker who he fails to realize is a Fangire and scares him off. Megumi approaches him asking what he’s doing. Nago replies he’s acting as a bodyguard, reasoning that because Megumi was twice saved by Kiva then he might encounter Kiva by following Megumi and thereby have his chance to defeat him. Megumi complains that she doesn’t like Nago or want him following her. He tells her it’s not aversion to him but it’s rather jealousy of his power. She threatens that if he continues to follow her she’ll bring suit against him as a stalker.

I’m enjoying the storyline so far as the major characters have been well introduced by now and now I’m noticing the nice touches like the time shifts, for example in this episode when Megumi is by the payphone hand against the advertisement, the scene shifts to 1986 and her mother Yuri stands in front of an old style phone ads plastered to the wall for the same band in 86 their debut and 2008 their final concert.
