Re: KR Zero-One 24 released

Man I finally caught up. It is just me, or is the Form Replacement Syndrome really hitting hard with the start of Reiwa? Shining, Assault Shining, now Metal Cluster and Hopper Blade, cripes, let the forms breathe a bit why don't ya. That said I liked that they tied it back to his development with th...

Re: KR Zi-O the Movie: Over Quartzer

How did they manage to make it both WORSE than the choices they made in the actual episodes, but also with a plot point that would have made a HELL of a lot more sense in the show than it would for a movie? Woz actually being part of a secondary cult dedicated to revising the timeline would have mad...

Re: KR Zero-One 09 released

Good episode, surprised they fell onto relying on another CGI heavy fight so soon though, it felt pretty clunky as far as climaxes go. Character development is slow but steady, and at least the characters are thus far sticking to their personalities for how they act and react to everything. I wish I...

Re: KR Zero-One 06 released

Definitely glad to see the story isn't afraid to deal with heavier topics that fall in grayer areas, though you can definitely see the Japanese inclination towards societal health over individual. Processing loss is a universal human need but shoehorning technology into place to fix it kinda straddl...

Re: KR Zero-One 01 released

Man, first episode in and we already get more character development for Aruto than we got for over half of the entire season for Sougo. I pray this means the new writing team won't go off the bend. Strongest first episode we've had for awhile, the comedy veers pretty close to cringe, but I think it ...

Re: Zi-O series discussion and poll

This is to me the ABSOLUTE WORST SEASON in the ENTIRE run of the Heisei Era :/ This season is a low 2, would be a low 1 if not for Decade and DiEnd and a couple of the exceptions to how UTTERLY TERRIBLE the use of all the cameos were. If not for them I would have dropped the series and just read the...

Re: Heisei Kamen Rider Poll, Discussion, and All-Around Good Time.

Kabuto, Gaim, then Kiva. Kabuto got me into Kamen Rider in the first place, and it was a masterful showing of how you could have an exciting premise but also realistic, genuine characters even if you made your protagonist over the top, and still managed to make it more mature and developed on top of...

Re: KR Zi-O 49 released

Not even taking pushing Drive's Watch into the movie into account, this season was a TIRE FIRE OF EPIC PROPORTIONS @_@ For an anniversary season of all things they decide to retcon every five to six episodes what happens and why, have characters with zero development and charisma, and with maybe two...

Re: KR Zi-O 48 released

Yeah, its beyond salvaging at this point I think :/ Was a good episode moment to moment, but the whole thing still feels a discombobulated mess. Chase dying feels like it should have been the crux of getting the Drive Watch properly, but instead we get a pass-over to Tsukuyomi getting Rider-fied. No...

Re: KR Zi-O 47 released

Well this is just a right mess now. I'd buy this "merge into one to destroy them all" theory if it hadn't been pushed as pure TIME TRAVEL from episode 1. Or if they had stated it was all merged into one world cause then the whole "each Rider in a different year" idea would have actually worked bette...

Re: KR Zi-O 46 released

So Ora killed Heure.... to get close to Schwartz to kill him for Heure. Yeah, that sure is character development there, Toei. And yeah I saw death flags for Aqua the minute he showed up. If he's the one with the knowledge of who Tsukuyomi really is and her family origins, you know he's not gonna be ...

Re: KR Zi-O 44 released

Man this was boring :/ There's no twist to Ora being Another Drive, nothing of her character it plays off of since she was always wanting power in the first place. Likely this was just an excuse to fit all the Riders in at the last second to make Grand Zi-O turn out as badly thought out as the rest ...

Re: KR Zi-O 43 released

Well it was more entertaining, to say the least. Though they're going whole hog on this badly written, badly backed angle they've gone in. Hiryuu was a mess from start to finish, there was no reason Grand Zi-O shouldn't have walked right through him at the start unless you count Sougo's emotional fl...

Re: KR Zi-O 42 released

When your biggest draws to the episode are the Riders from the last anniversary season 10 years earlier, you're definitely on the wrong track. Repeating the whole memory loss/alternate timeline crap makes even less sense than it did before, not even touching the most basic of basic stuff like "Why a...
