Re: KR Zero-One 19 released

I get what you mean, however, I would say that is very much your mileage may vary. I personally just don't find that kind of show all that appealing most of the time for me and when a season really delves into that heavily, chances are I will probably get relatively board like in Gaim and Build. My ...

Re: KR Zero-One 19 released

I personally disagree. What dragged down Build for me was that every episode was a big one for the plot in a way, similar to Gaim. There were no smaller problems to tackle and solve that would have given a different look at the characters. That's what dragged both these seasons down massively for me...

Re: KR Zero-One 19 released

Huh, really interesting seeing all the reactions to this new ark and how negative they are, because I'm fucking loving it. This is exactly what I have been missing in Zero-One until now, something that focuses more on the micro-scale instead of the big story macro scale. Don't get me wrong, that is ...

Re: KR Zero-One 12 released

Yep, this feels like Sanjou alright. Weird, eccentric characters I quickly fall in love with. Yeah, honest to god, I would love for him to write more episodes. That is a Humagear I want to see turn Magia simply because I like him so much. This whole episode just makes me wish he would be given anoth...

Re: KR Zero-One 10 released

Probably my favorite episode until now. A Filler Episode that really works well on its own, fleshes out Antsu-chan and gives a bit of development to Fuwa, which is greatly appreciated since he is one of the weaker characters until now and only starting to get a bit more complex with the last two epi...

Re: Zero-One series discussion and poll

The story and characters are fine, my problem lies more with what I had already feared would happen. Just like in Ex-Aid, the filler is forgettable and has not enough time to develop more than very shallow surface level. If you can't make the individual components of a show enjoyable you are doing s...

Re: KR Zero-One 06 released

Yeah, at this point I can probably say it, Zero-One's One-Off plots have the same problem as Ex-Aid's did, they are just not memorable enough, or at least they aren't memorable enough for a one-episode story. If a season has good One-Offs I'll remember them long after I'm done with that series, but ...

Re: KR Zero-One 05 released

Has a big evil in a tokusatsu show ever been female? For Sentai, we have: > Denjiman > Fiveman (at first) > Zyuranger > GoGoV For Kamen Rider, we have: Uh... someone help me out here. No joke, I'm drawing a blank. For Metal Heroes, we have: > Spielban > Blue Swat > B-Fighter Kabuto I'm not as well-...

Re: KR Zero-One 01 released

Ok, I really, really like this first episode, it lands almost every beat. Aruto is interesting if I'll like him more than Sougo I'm not sure yet because Sougo really checked of several archetypes I adore, but we will see, we have a year with the guy after all. The only thing I'm kinda worried about ...

Re: Worst Heisei Riders

Yeah, for the third-place I think I go with Hibiki. The writer change definitely didn't do the show any favors, but in my opinion, many of the problems of the latter half of the series were very much present in the first. I don't hate it, but even amongst the shows I'm meh about it is at the bottom....

Re: Zi-O series discussion and poll

I really, really like ZI-O and this has to be my favorite Kamen Rider cast. If there is one thing ZI-O nailed its characters. Our ZI-O crew really feels like a family. And I also very much like their character arcs, they flow logically and well from episode 1 onwards. ZI-O is exactly what I'm lookin...

Re: KR Zi-O 48 released

Actually, I think they are using this. Decade ended with one combined world, that was also around the time Sougo got his time powers that draws in Rider Worlds. That means that this power wasn't gone after the worlds merged, so Sougo drew in more Rider worlds. So one can assume that all Neo Heisei ...

Re: KR Zi-O 48 released

Here's my problem with this whole thing. Schwartz's plan is to combine all the rider worlds into one right? What's wrong with that, and also insanely ironic, is that plan would have worked better in Decade proper. All of the Riders since Decade have been in the same world, save for Build. Most of t...

Re: KR Zi-O 38 released

Kagami as Kabuto literally nullifies all of his character development in growing to become Gatack, the whole point to him being Gatack was that he was different from Tendou but could still achieve the same kind of greatness through his own methods and principles. But nope, Kagami apparently never o...
