>Kamen Rider Ghost Episode 16 Preview
Does anyone have the webm of Kug wrecking the porcupine, I somehow managed to start some form of conversation with my friends about rider. This may invoke interest in rider and I need people who like rider who aren't /krg/
Most KR has badly written character drama, Faiz was just more melodramatic with it's portrayal of it
personally I found it hilarious though
That is genuinely one of my favorite scenes in all of KR, super brutal and frankly the guy had it coming. Kiba was the best thing about Faiz in general I feel.
I actually liked Kusaka and his antics. It was when he stopped being such an asshole that things got a bit boring.
Now, Mihara I couldn't stomach. He was the most irrelevant character in the main storyline and yet he got the most powerful belt. He was a huge bitch at first, and after he became the main Delta user he lost all traces of a personality. I hated his guts, the worst part of Faiz to me.
Stupid drama is fun, I got in with the right mentality and enjoyed the ride. Also: Exceed Charge just became my favorite Rider Kick.
Kaidou was my favorite, most scenes he was in were hilarious.
Yeah Mihara was shit. Dragon Orphenoch using the Delta gear was fun for a while but really the chick who it was initially intended for was the only cool Faiz user.
Kaidou was cool too. I found the trio of Kiba, Kaidou and Yuka's half of the story to be more interesting than Takumi, Mari, Keitaro and Kusaka personally.
I could try being cool but then Kusaka would probably destroy me (see Crab Orphenoch)
so basically >>13790516 I guess
I'm on the last five episodes of Fourze. This was the worst show of the entire series. Worse than Kiva, worse than Faiz, and worse than Ghost. It's nothing but introducing switch after switch for the first 2/3 of the show. Gentaro just wants to run around like a sperglord screaming about friendship. NONE of them try to inspect where these Zodiart are coming from. NOT EVEN WHEN IT'S REVEALED A TEACHER IS GIVING OUT SWITCHES. They were just fine coasting through making switches and retarded fast food machines. Not to mention the fact that the guy from Kung Pow had a better Bruce Lee impression. The only thing that was cool was Cosmic States. It's pretty decent for a final form
I'm sorry you couldn't enjoy it as much as I did, but I respect your opinion.
What are your top shows?
Its not that I even hate it. It's fun, but has no real substance to it. It was the equivalent to a summer blockbuster to me, it's fun but it doesn't require thinking.
Just make sure the dog doesn't die the next day.
Started as edgy rival, now transitioning into bro Rider.
THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME FROM ENDLESS IDOL GROUPS BASED MATSUOKA
Watched the Baron Gaim Gaiden yesterday and I just couldn't stop laughing when the bikes came out of nowhere during the Dragon Fruit fight. I know it's a KR show but the bike thing was so corny and unexpected it was hilarious.
Spectre is basically the only interesting character in the show, I wish he was the main. He even has better music
So Specter can't fly without Houdini, right?
You can tell that they are making upgrades based on what a toy version would look like. Really no need to have 4 turbines when 2 would have looked better. The sides should have been a cloak, not wings. Or a cloak that could harden into wings.
Himoko, more like HimiCUTE
I didn't like Gou " I was pretending to be retarded!" Shinjima either. But atleast he had character and personality at the start of the show; at least he wasn't a shitty carbon copy of a previously existing one.
>tfw he will never be happy again
Not yet, it should show up before next weekend.
>hating on Spider-Mach
He looks like that in most of his modeling pictures. Its his thing.
Kaito was a faggot for most of Gaim then. Gou had MAH Daddy, Kaito had MAH tree and strength.
>AU where Kuuga's suits are white, and Daguva is black
That wouldn't look too bad.
The GC version isn't.
>AU Kuuga is humanity being complete bastards and hunting down Gurongi just for Sport.
>AU Daguva fights to protect the remaining Gurongi from Humanity and it's Champion hunter, Kuuga.
>Daguva is a Good guy and has Red Compound eyes.
>Kuuga is a Bad guy and has small Black eyes.
>Daguva looks more Kuuga Like.
>Kuuga looks more Gurongi like, but "Holy".
Anyone know how to make this work?
Honestly, with Daguva being turned into a Rider I would like his eyes to stay slick. Not as tiny as they were originally, but still.
>Daguva, Decade, and Onodera head up to a snow mountain side where Kuuga is waiting.
>Daguva goes into his Ultimate form while Decade and Onodera prepare to transform.
>Daguva stops them and tells them that this is something he needs to do alone.
>He sets fire behind him, blocking Decade and Onodera from following.
>Decade eager to fight attempts to rush through, but Onodera stops him and tells him no and it's time to leave.
>The Episode ends with Narutaki watching Daguva and Kuuga fighting to the death as he gives a speech on Decade's bullshit.
>Daguva and Kuuga both lay in the snow as the weather covers them both up.
If Daguva had alternate forms what elements would they be based on? Mighty is Fire, Dragon is Water, Pegasus is Air. and Titan is Earth. I guess he would be Lightning, Metal, Ice, and... Something vague.
During Decade, they were killed several times, but always by Decade or Diend (or it was that Undead copy that Apollogeist creates in the finale with Fangire life energy).
After that, I don't think they were ever killed on screen, outside of one exception. For example, there were some Undeads in SHTs Dai-Shocker in the final battle, and the heroes are shown to have won when the big bosses are defeated, but we don't actually see them being destroyed on screen. No Undeads were part of Badan either (who were supposed to be dead spirits).
In the Wizard finale though, there was Paradoxa (from Decade) and Tortoise among the spirits of dead monsters inside the magic stone, and both were destroyed again in the finale. There was a Tortoise killed in the Blade episodes of Decade too, so it could be just that one again.
It's just role reverse, If you wanted it to make it fun try:
>The humans during the series had been using a MP G1 Unit(G3 suits but red) to help Kuuga hunt down Gurongi.
>The Commander/Leader of the G1 squad is Ichijo, and he uses a G1-X unit.
>Daguva uses the weapons the Gurongi used in the show and the Go Group's forms.
>Unlike Kuuga, Daguva obtains these forms after one of his Gurongi friends had died.
>Also unlike Kuuga, once the form is unlocked, it stays as part of the Base form.
>Grapple Form/Red Arms
>Quick Form/Blue Legs
>Shooting Form/Green Head
>Great Strength Form/Purple Body
>Shooting and GS are obtained in the 2 part episodes, while Quick is obtained during the intro of Episode 1 of 2.
>Once Daguva obtains these forms, his body starts reacting strangely and turns Black(Electric Shock Form).
Dude, I hate Gou and love Beast but I'm not going to lie and say Gou isn't the objectively better character.
Beast was just a loveble personalit ywith almost no development or story purpose.
Gou accurately went through a lot of shit and changed multiple times through out the series.
>Gou accurately went through a lot of shit and changed multiple times through out the series.
Except for the part where it was literally a facade. He was literally never naturally a cheery, happy-person. His fucking insert song admits he's being double-faced.
I actually love that about Gou, he comes into the show acting all crazy and over the top, but as time goes on you see his facade start to crack and fall apart as he get put under more pressure. Seeing him get his problems under control and work with Shinnosuke and Chase was great.
>Saving Shin from Tornado
>Working with Chase to save Yukari
>His interactions with Chase in general
>THAT FINAL FIGHT
Haruto could probably fit them. Seriously does someone feed him? I'd imagine even using chopsticks would give you more definition than those sticks.

It's a shame justice is trash
That's part of a larger, live musical stage show they did back in 2009. It sorta connects to the "All Riders vs. Dai-Shocker" movie, though more in a promotional sense than a story one. A number of the original actors voiced their characters in it, too (Ouja, Kickhopper, Punchhopper, Momotaros, Kintaros, IXA, Kivat).
The Rider Prison scene is the best part. Ouja and Kintaros do a comedy routine, and so do the hopper brothers. Also, Diend has a musical number where he summons a bunch of secondary riders in top hats to dance with him.
KITsubs subbed it a while back. I'm not sure where you can download it now, but I watched it through a facebook link (better than nothing).
Also: fair warning, the Kuuga in this is Decade's Kuuga, and his characterization can be really irritating.
Oh wow, this is Decade's Live Show, we just got one for Ghost where Necrom appeared. I remember this so well. I was a Shocker Combatman in the introductory portion where they're all dancing. This was also one of the few times I actually donned a Rider suit: G3!
Den-O Sword Form's stuntman was a long-going one for stage shows, he's a pretty great guy who's Takaiwa-levels of good. He still does stage stuff only, though, I think. It's sort of nonsequitur to mention him but he's usually the first person I remember when I think back to that stuff.
It's actually mostly women.
He wasn't even really acting badass, he was just massively exaggerating his normal personality to try and keep Kiriko and Shinnosuke from worrying about and questioning him. Once things start going way different from what he wanted, we start to see how terrified and immature he really is. For me, that's what makes his growth so satisfying
Including baddies, of course. A couple of times one of the stuntwomen would get sick, however, and they'd ask for just someone from the Sentai or Rider shows if they would mind filling in. It's in our contracts (At least up until Wizard) that we're basically all understudies for each other anyway. So while most of the time (At least ninety nine percent) there's women under those masks, there's a small chance there's a guy.
I should just note since I realized how specific the wording sounded: This was one of the few times I actually donned a Rider suit and went on stage with it.
Generally everyone involved is encouraged to dress up in whatever suits they can in their free-time just to get a feel for them and get adjusted. Usually it's main Rider suits, but also monster and grunt suits and suits of older Riders. Since you never know if you're gonna get a choice in what you wear, you may as well at least be experienced in what you're likely to wear.
How did Toei manage to top itself by making The Next worse than this garbage?
It's pretty subjective for stage show stuff compared to live stuff, because they often design them with more visibility in mind, with only lighting really making things difficult. So it really just depends on the time of day. With that in mind though, for me it was a tie between Decade and Diend for most lighting.
Chaser's theme is lot more solemn than I expected. I like it.
Mitsuru Matsuoka? Yeah sounds like it.
AAAAAND HERE WE GO WITH PART 5 of SftBSiRH today we got Kabuto! Only two songs so go ham!
tfw Toei literally reused a song from an older album for Chase
>Apple Arms poorly duct taped to a Roidmude suit
Does anyone have a link to the Ghost x Drive song? You know, the one ONE FINGER made?
>Future Rider OP MV get's released
>It has just enough weird elements for normal people to love it even if they can't understand it (Like Gangnam Style)
>The release online gets millions apon millions of hits
>Then people find out it's the opening to a show
Except that probably the entire idea was that his bike transforms into the hoodie. Probably since the concept art stages. I can imagine two wheels splitting into four turbines was seen somewhere in the initial plans and they went with that.
Speaking of which, I've only ever seen concept art for for like... Kuuga. Do they ever release more recent concept material? I'd love to see the original visual ideas for things like Gaim or Ghost.
So did they explain why Houdini was Makoto's bike? How he acquired the bike in the first place?
Why to people still thing A/Z is so good? Honestly it was WAY over hyped for me, and it kind of ruined my experience with it. I was always told it was the best, but when I watched it myself, I didn't really like it that much.
>this ringing noise in Ryuki
Please tell me they tone it down at some point.
Nagura returned for Erika and Nao and sung Tsutto Tsutto with them on their last stage.
I didn't even do this with Photoshop. MSPaint man.
He converts calories into mana, he doesn't just need sugar to do it, he just prefers plain sugar doughnuts because they're high enough in calories and easy to get, doesn't hurt that they're his favorite.
It's still not as good as the show, but as far as Rider movies go it's about as good as they get. What would you say is better?
Haha nope. Ryuki's my favorite show and that sound still fucking triggers me.
Oh you mean the movie where they all get paid to get samurai haircuts for the lulz? And the villain is a tranny? And there's a random kid sidekick? No, that movie fucking sucked.
I always imagined Daguva's rider form being more like the Kuuga equivalent of v3 to Kuuga's Ichigo, the belt being a double arcle and possibly even having green eyes, for a more shadowmoon-like color scheme
Who is the most underappreciated Rider in all 45 years of history?
I say Blade, it seems like nobody remembers him
I just watched Ghost episode 13. Although that one just made me confused about the Ganma. They had the Sword Ganma returning and using Sasaki Kojiro's personal technique.
I thought they'd be avoiding direct references to the historical figures tied to the Ganma and that's why they are named just after the summoning object, but if they're going to be using unique stuff like that they should just have been named after the historical figures themselves.
The show itself seems to basically avoid using their official names too, due to how goofy naming them after objects is...
It still has some of the best fights in recent Rider history, and Eiji as Birth is at least interesting. Better than Wizard's shitty movie (which also had a "tranny" if that's a peeve of yours).
>If I don't like it it's mockery
Everyone in Japan loves those videos. They don't do it with the intent to mock the show or anything, it's just usnig lines they find funny or ridiculous and making something entertaining out of it further.
Same shit as Gachimuchi.
Agito, dude is blazed all day
I liked Date and Gotou as characters but Birth as a rider was pretty shit
Conversely Meteor was a pretty cool rider but beyond having good taste in girls Ryusei did nothing for me
I thought Baron was sorta lame too in general too
>Lightning = Mighty
>Wood = Dragon (With Whip)
>Void = Pegasus (Still a Bowgun?)
>Metal = Titan (With Warhammer or Battle Axe)
>what showa series was tbqh
Amazon and the original series (what I've seen of it) are pretty good too. I thought V3 was kind of boring, but I only got about 20 episodes in.
>We could've gotten a pimp ass cape instead of the spikey mess that Rising Ultimate was
Aran could go either way, he's yet to actually do anything
Ten-Faced Demon arc of Amazon was genuinely pretty engaging stuff. The Emperor Zero (or whatever he was called) arc was pretty dull by comparison, aside from
Moleman'sdeath and that when scene at the end where Amazon looks like he's fighting a KKK member.
> terrible writing, inconsistent characters, and the shittiest protagonist
you can say this about a ton of Rider shows
especially Showa, Stronger was literally the Kabuto of its day
>and the shittiest protagonist of the Heisei era
why does Tendou trigger so many people on here
Him & KaGAmi function really well as joint leads together, saving each other when one goes down a shitty path
>Stronger was literally the Kabuto of its day
Stronger was a confident man who prided himself in "out-smarting" Black Satan and was greatly humbled by the death of a close ally.
Kabuto is a smug asshole who never changes, improves, or becomes likable. Literally everyone except his sister and Kagami (Who is a retard) hates him.
I guess he means how they pull bulshit out of nowhere. Tendo with things like the Hyper Zecter time stuff, and Shigeru has electricity powers basically being able to do anything.
Speak for yourself. My favorite protagonists are Takumi and Tsukasa, both of which ooze confidence. The difference is they at least improve and become likable and have a change from the first and last episodes that are more than location.
Name one difference from the first episode of Kabuto and the last episode of Kabuto for Tendou that isn't just "He's now in France and has one whole friend."
inb4 you use Hiyori being a worm as an attempt at it being Tendou's character development. His edgy evil clone is more well-developed than he is.
And it's pretty hilarious.
>that time he escapes from certain death by fire in a crematorium
>asked how he pulled off that bullshit
>"Like I'd tell you!"
>kicks everyone's ass regardless
Not really the description I'd give to him. A lot of his character arc involves him looking for a reason to give a damn about being Faiz in the first place. That's not the same as "confidence".
>Legit getting worried over Hiyori
>Actually thinks of a plan to save her rather than bullshit his way through everything
>Starts him on his way of wanting to protect people, not just because he can, but because he should
Kabuto spent like a third of the show being completely delusional about saving Hiyori and needed Gatack to slap his shit in to snap him out of it.
I wouldn't want every protag to be like Kabuto but he was a refreshing change of pace and had plenty of fun interactions with other characters.
I do think Decade was the same general character concept done in a more engaging way though.
It is pretty hard to be worse than the guy who attempted a time travelling self-abortion to please his notgirlfriend, yeah.
Otoya was too cool for that show, man.
When he does start to take things seriously, he masks it under what can be construed as confidence, maybe cockiness. Don't forget his fighting style revolves a lot of flamboyant and toying gestures, even in situations where if he takes any longer people are gonna start dying.
Tendou is a shit protagonist and he negatively effected my enjoyment of Kabuto.
>Close to final episode.
>Introduction of worm detecting necklaces.
>K, something sinister is going on.
>Tendou just decides to fuck everybody's shit up.
>Kagami and co. think he's turned evil.
>Okay, maybe he'll explain why to Kagami, they're cool now right?
>Let's Kagami fuck him up and nearly kill him, THEN tells him whats going on.
Ehy? He does this multiple times too.
Just tell them whats going on you annoying fuck. It's even worse as the audience because the entire motivation behind his character feels like one long series of ass pulls that get increasingly absurd as shit goes on. I can't stand him.
I actually wish Stronger had met the other Riders before Tackle's death. It could have been interesting...
It's also kind of a shame that he drops his speech after her death, although at least he's back to doing it in Skyrider.
>Don't forget his fighting style revolves a lot of flamboyant and toying gestures
His fighting style wasn't flamboyant at all, it was parry-based.
You want flamboyance, look at Eiji and his constant twirly ballet fighting style.
Well, he only actually time traveled once, but there was also that (really badly directed) delayed shot thing, the sun eclipse portal, the "infinite evolution" = Perfect Zecter out of nowhere.
He wanted to see if he could trust Kagami. Don't forget he was working with ZECT and the Natives.
Tendou is a man that respects strength, the only way he could figure out if someone is trustworthy is by fighting them.
>His fighting style wasn't flamboyant at all, it was parry-based.
Check out how he moves around when using the Faiz Edge, particularly when he gets rid of it in Paradise Lost. He practically skips to center stage, twirls, and tosses the damn thing away before squatting down.
Hell, it's a pretty confident move to immediately squat in the middle of fights, which he does all the time.
He started acting there before he knew what was going on though, so he had nothing to explain aside from saying that he felt like it.
By the time he actually discovered what was their plan, he had already hurt Tadakoro and Renji (or whatever was the name of that shadow girl), so Kagami was furious and didn't want to hear him.
It was equally fucking retarded that Kagami couldn't trust him in the second/third to last episode after all the shit they had gone through together. Tendou deciding to let a paper napkin do the taking for him was dumb yeah, but it felt like several steps backwards for Kagami to start distrusting Tendou again when they were closer than ever a moment ago.
Yeah but from Kagami's perspective Tendou just started fucking up all of ZECT's shit, why would he trust him if he's doing that? If he wanted his trust so badly he could have just told him what he was doing.
I got recommended to watch Kabuto as my first Rider back in around 2010. "Don't watch W, it's too good and will ruin everything else for you. Watch Kabuto, it's a great sampler for Rider as a whole." Holy fuck does that reflect badly on Rider in 2010.
Having now seen everything after Kiva as well as Kuuga, Agito, Faiz, Kabuto and Den-O, I can safely say that the only Rider I've seen that was worse than Kabuto was Wizard. It is such an utter mess of a show that it baffles me why people recommended it beyond "the suits and effects are good". Which they are, even today, but Kabuto's characters and plot are just this horrible mess.
Because ZECT had been extremely shady and questionable in their action since the first couple of episodes, while Tendou's directive has always been fuck shit up first, explain later. The whole segment felt like it could have been handled better regardless of who was being less stupid.
Neither finale was very good. Kuuga had a form we'd never seen before against a kaijin we'd never seen before, and all they do is punch each other with some squibs for blood. The snow was cool but that's it. Everyone says it's so fucking gritty and realistic, but it just felt weak. They were very clearly 100% out of budget.
>and all they do is punch each other with some squibs for blood.
That fight was fucking brutal and that's why it was so effective.
>no fancy fight choreography
>just the two most powerful people on the planet beating the shit out of each other trying to outlast the other
Yeah, the suits and action were top notch and I really liked some of the characters like KaGAmi, but the rest of it is a mess.
>Where did the punch and kick hoppers comes from?
>Why were they introduced when they don't do anything for the rest of the show?
>Why did one of them
turn out to be a worm?
>What was that Bee tattoo shit about?
>Why did Drake disappear for half of the show, come back, and then never appear again?
>What was up with the dark kitchen arc? Amusing, but ultimately pointless.
>How and why did Tendou keep managing to join and leave ZECT randomly?
>Who was that razor wire woman? Why was she in the show?
>Fucking everything about Dark Kabuto and his stupid bullshit dark realm, fuck right off.
>Kagami's father problems never really getting resolution.
>Why did ZECT choose/predict Kagami and Tendou would retrieve the zecters? What was all of that shit in the secret underground bunker?
>he only agreed to the role when they told him it would destroy the image Kamen Rider had until now
This line is so fucking misused it's got a Hallmark movie about its abuse
Takatera convinced Odagiri that the plan for Kuuga was not to "Destroy the old image of Kamen Rider," but to "Turn it into something modern and new." To fix any of the questionable issues with older shows, like long poses and calling attacks.
>the two most powerful people on the planet
Show, don't tell. We have no frame of reference for why either of them is powerful at all. The only thing of note Daguva's done is kill the bat. We've never seen Ultimate Kuuga before, just heard a lot of mystical mumbo jumbo.
Given prior to that, Kuuga at his halfway point was able to kill a monster capable of creating nuclear explosions and literally every Grongi was terrified of Daguva, it's a very easy idea to infer.
Daguva scared the shit out of everyone, killed the remaining 150 Grongi by himself, set Godai on fire with his mind, etc. He was a massive threat without having to rely on pyrotechnics.
>Where did the punch and kick hoppers comes from?
Mishima accuses Riku of doing it. Riku denies, but it's clear that he's lying. Writing material confirms that it was Riku.
>Who was that razor wire woman? Why was she in the show?
Replacement lead actress after Hiyori's role was diminished due to her sickness. Story-wise, a Zect member sent to observer Tendo but starts admiring him. Still, due to being a forced addition and not being a Rider, she didn't have much of a role either. They really should just have made her a female Bee since no one else had the Zecter by that point, but as I understand it the Bee, Drake and Sasword bombed, so Bandai likely didn't want more screentime wasted with them.
The only thing I found scary about him was the child like laugh
Starting with a Showa Rider isn't necessarily a bad choice (I started with Amazon), but I didn't much like V3.
If you want an older series, I recommend Stronger, Amazon or Black. I WOULD recognize the original Kamen Rider series itself, but we've only got it subbed up to episode 44 right now.
I'm so disappointed they cut W's (vs Black Cross King) and Daguba's scenes out of the movie. I really wanted to see their fighting scenes.
They apparently had recorded scenes for a Director's Cut but decided against releasing it, since Osamu Kaneda had already moved to another movie.
Have fun, man. If you like rubber monster suits and goofy ass fights, you're in for a treat.
Oops my bad.
Linto doesn't have the concept of "fighting" (or "fight back"). They are literally pigs waiting to be killed.
But one thing for sure is Linto does have the concept of "killing" and "hunting", just like Grongi. Among the Linto language there are symbols of bow and arrow, sword, armor, and they do have "words" describing how to use those tools.
I can understand the production notes saying they don't like "fighting" because they are peaceful people. I cannot understand why in the show they have Grongi saying Ichijou being a more "aggresive Linto". Does that mean Linto having all the weapons in their hands, refused to fight back and to protect themselves when Grongi showed to kill them?
Are these people really that dumb for not even trying, and have to choose one of them to fight for them instead?
I was kind of hoping that Chase's song would have music based on the background music heard early on in Drive, like from the ost; 9th track 'Chase', the 19th track 'Hissastu Chase', and track 31 'Attack Mashin' and then just include lyrics based on the character.
I thought they considered Ichijou an "aggresive Linto" because he frequently brought the fight to them. The Linto probably reserved their fighting abilities for self-defense, whereas Ichijou actively tries to take down the Grongi and very clearly shoots to kill.
The Linto most likely fought mainly to protect, using the "Kuuga" warriors (Yes, Warrior warriors shut up) to do so. Meanwhile, Ichijou actively went out of his way to fight them, actually shooting down Grongi.
RAH genesis Ghost looks really fucking sweet, but 32000 anime dollars is a huge chunk of money.
Looking at this also makes me sad about the lack of night battles in ghost. But then again, what did I expect from John Toei
>All that excitement in /krg/ because light up suit
>Everyone thinking we'd get night fights with the suit lit up
>We've only had one so far, and the suit lit up for about two seconds during it
We had another night fight recently, but no light up suit. Toei/PLEX/Bandai really do shit out ideas then never use them at all.
That is what I don't get.
Linto has people went deep into Grongi ground, got their top guy's data, and delivered to their people to make a "clone" of it. I think those are "aggresive" enough since they are not walking in freely without a fight.
Also Daguva doesn't seemed to be that kind of guy who frequently goes hunting in public. Even if he does that nobody will be survived long enough to get the details.
I guess it is just another one of those "don't think too deep because it is a kids show thing".
Well it was claimed to be a "well planned-out" story so I just go in to see how much bones I could pick from it.
There were multiple meteors, pretty sure. The Amadam gems were collected from a second one and were used to form the actual gem within the Arcle, the rest was some naturally occurring metal with special symbols carved in.
I was hoping for that too, but I wouldn't say more opportunities to hear Eternal's music is every a bad thing.
Still though, S.S.P.D. come back and finish what you started. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ww4I18ltnfo
>starting downloading Ryuki to watch it for the first time
>Shinji's first appearance on screen in the first episode is him getting punched in the face
Well, if we keep getting at least the annual crossover stuff with old shows I'll continue following it. If at some point they stop with it all and just have the current Rider I might drop the show if one of them bores enough.
Here we have the list so far everyone. Expect Den-O by tonight or tomorrow morning depends on how long my work takes.
The Grongi and Linto were both tribal humans, and while the Grongi were originally just nasty fucks, a falling set of meteors that had a strange mutagenic material in all of them turned the Grongi into the monsters we know them as today. Their superiority most likely justified their intent on hunting Linto in the form of the Gegeru.
No, I get that the Gurongi were originally human. I thought their belts were just made of some weird material that mutated them into monsters. I don't remember it mentioning that metal came from space.
Do you think he's embarrassed about coming back as Kamen Rider and just needed money?
I mean if it's a bad sign for guys like Renn to come back and other actors are actively barred from returning by their agency it must be pretty bad to be a veteran actor to come back to this shit.
You DO know Fujioka is his own brand and has been for the past couple of decades ,right? Shit go buy some of his coffee, that shit's good. Puts the lead in your pencil.
He came back to Kamen Rider since it was one of his first roles, a career-defining experience, and because it was a major anniversary. And because Toei asked, probably.
>Embarrassed about being a Japanese Icon
You know there's a fucking planet named after him and the original series right? Why wouldn't he be proud as fuck of what he's done?
He'll be remembered long after you or I crumble to dust and our headstones erode away buddy.
Honestly I kinda like how his arc ended in the series because it was clear he was warming up to Chase but just trying to keep up the "all roidmudes need to die" act. In the end he never grew up enough to be able to admit his feelings and had to watch Chase die before he ever could. Plus it was pretty cathartic to have him beat the ever loving shit out of Gold Drive and shatter Banno's belt.
I wonder how Makoto will end up.
He owes Takeru for Kanon despite him having fought Takeru, he probably also owes Aran for sheltering him and Kanon in ganma realm, maybe even for the belt, and now he's fighting him.
If they brought back Sasaki to fight Ghost maybe they would bring back Capone to fight Specter.
That was one of the single most hype fights in Rider history. I'm not even kidding.
You honestly don't think parents who were fans haven't told their children about Rider 1? Or most recently Heisei VS Showa? There are pictures and statues of Rider 1. Even been to the Bandai Museum?
Well actually he used it again in a later episode, then again to track down Shoot Roidmude, then again while fighting Faiz Axel, and again when he busts everyone out of Banno's tornado attack.
Turn's out to be a pretty good track record, as far as bullshit additional powers in Rider go.
>but you can't deny the actors were top notch.
It has one of my favorite casts in any Rider series. The main Riders all played off of each other well, but the supporting cast was fun, and the villains were some of the best in the franchise too.
I really miss them, and seeing everyone again in Surprise Future was great.
How the fuck do you even make fun of Surprise Future? Like seriously basically everything after the first 10 minutes or so is pretty dead serious and is basically an hour of watching Shinnosuke suffer and get the shit beaten out of him until the endgame
>aside from maybe Kouta
Kouta was fine and so is Tendou. You want a shitty protagonist go watch Wizard
>The secondary rider literally has to be the one to save the world and defeat the big bad because Haruto is literally retarded and decides to sacrifice himself, three brainwashed puppets and the fucking world for muh kuyomi
Ok point taken there, but one whole segment with a ridiculous minicar doesn't really give a lot for a jokesub to do. I mean yeah there's that and then not even 5 minutes ago we had Krim's gift to Shinnosuke, a huge garage filled with vintage cars be destroyed after a unexpected postmortem recording.
Kuuga's final fight was much different in tone.
Like, I was a complete emotional wreck in that penultimate episode because I was thoroughly convinced that Godai was not walking out of that fight alive. It was really painful to watch because of it.
Gou's fight against Banno was hype as fuck because it was so cathartic to see Gou beat the shit out of him like he deserved, and get justice for Chase's death.
Theoretically, it should be possible to destroy an Undead. They're basically immortal, yeah, but I don't think they're completely indestructible. Otherwise, it shouldn't be possible to harm them.
Undeads can be wounded. They can bleed. So in order to truly put down an Undead, I suppose it's a matter of inflicting enough force on them until they're completely atomized.
ZO. ZO is literally the least-notable Rider in the history of all Riders. Everyone else has something.
Rider 1 is the first. Rider 2 is the second. V3 is their lovechild. Riderman is the guy with the exposed mouth. X has a stick. Amazon is cute. Stronger was one of the more iconic Showa Riders. Skyrider was the one who could fly. Super-1 was kung-fu. Black is the second-most popular Showa Rider. Black RX is sequel-Black. Shin is the ugly black sheep. J is the one that grows huge.
But ZO? No one gives a shit about ZO. There is nothing special about him. Nothing whatsoever.
I think that's mostly because the Tridoron key only had partial battle data, not enough to fully reform Drive but enough to transform but enough to store Krim and some basic Drive data.
He has to be careful. As shown in God Speed Love, even the Hyper Zecter can't perfectly protect him from the ramifications of his altering the past. He's not a Singularity Point.
Somebody posted this explanation a few threads ago.
I got Kuuga and Agito already. Decade is pre-ordered. And I'm alright with skipping the others.
I'd hoped they'd go through other Riders first before doing other forms, but I guess when Kuuga sold ridiculous amounts and Hibiki & Agito both bombed that changed up their game plan.
You can really tell that Decade was meant to be a toy, whereas for the others, that was kind of a secondary concern. Thanks to that, the joints don't stick out nearly as much on Decade.
'cause he doesn't give a fuck.
'cause nobody can find anything wrong with his series, including the
'cause KAMEN RIDE. D-D-D-D-DECADE! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuDv6ozj5LI
I think the difference here is that Shinnosuke had to use the Tridoron key in Chaser's belt which was configured for Chase while Gou simply brute forced the Signal Chaser to work in his belt which is why he ended up with that composite form
They picked a good character to be him and made the rider generally interesting ability wise. Basically if you ignore Decade's actual plot, which is absolutely retarded, it's a bunch of fun set pieces celebrating 10 years of Heisei up to that point.
And Chaser's belt was probably configured for Signal Chaser after Signal Chaser was finished, and it gave Mach a Rider Chaser form when read, indicating that Signal Chaser only has Rider Chaser's data and Chaser's belt should only has Rider Chaser's data stored.
How was Saver created in Gaim's spin-off, they didn't say if Kugai has taken Lockseed data from Yggdrasil. And why would Ryouma replicate Saver as Jinba mode in Sengoku Driver, have it given out to testers without an Energy Lockseed, rendering the form inaccessible.
How was Takeru gonna convince spirits of rulers like Nobunaga, Tut & Himiko to ally with him, & others such as Billy the Kid, a criminal, & Edison. Maybe Edison would be up for it for a good cause.
I guess that's what these Ryouma episodes are for, An eyecon alliance to set up Grateful form, mirrored by Ryouma's establishment of Sat-Cho Alliance.
>MFW $100 CSM DecaDriver
>The cards alone cost $200
God damn it, all I want is a nice cheap CSM belt
It's like an RPG, you need to first talk with the son to get the dead brother quote so that later after you use your Ghost walk through walls and sneak up on people skills the quote would show up and you can choose it and persuade the father.
I was getting them off eBay, I'm browsing Mandarake now. I found some more $100 Decadrivers here but they don't show anything but the box and I have no idea how much they'll gouge in shipping
Why was Houdini a special form? Why does he get combining bike when others are just normal forms. Toucon at least has dad's sacrifice for being special. Can't be because he's a magician, Edison's an inventor and he doesn't get special gear.
It does feel very over blown. If you're going to get some small trinkets or hell even some gimmick items sure but belts and things like that? Yeah you're kinda fucked with shipping.
