Re: KR Zero-One 05 released

The thing about that that I find hard to believe is that these 'big contracts' involve just a single humagear or just a handful of them. And they aren't particularly outstanding either, doing things that any human can do at a level that a human can reasonably do them. I mean it's a kids show so I'll...

Re: KR Zero-One 05 released

I mean, are they even slaves when they're not even human though? Not to mention to me the moral of the story was to not treat these things like mere tools. Something I don't particularly understand anyway since the show makes it very clear that they're not really human. That said, taking good care o...

Re: KR Zero-One 04 released

Being the dumb westerner that I am, I thought Fuwa was his given name. I'll have to make a note to stick to Yui and Isamu from here on. *Yua. I guess I'm just annoyed that no one's actually said her name so far. I get why Fuwa doesn't, since he seems like an asshole. But Aruto and Yua met several t...

Re: KR Zero-One 04 released

In the past there have been rider shows where the rider has different forms for different purposes that are introduced relatively early in the show. I mean they might go for 20... Or they might stop at 4-5 (not counting the actual upgrade forms).

Re: KR Zero-One 04 released

I'd be glad to see less of the noble woman who sacrifices herself for the cause trope in Japanese media. Didn't a man sacrifice himself for the cause in the same episode? An actual flesh and blood one at that. Anyway I consider this an ok episode. The whole "your dad caused the whole thing" arc jus...

Re: Japanese Comedians

Wordplay often relies on idiom. Idiom can be different even among different cultures that share a language. It's fascinating, really.

Re: KR Zero-One 03 released

While she didn't defeat any major enemies today, she did show up the Vulcan guy. I mean not that I'm like "women should do better than dudes" but more like, you know, she was played up to be more competent than the other guy. And it turns out she actually is.

Do you also happen to have any idea what's funny about a naked guy exploding his abs?

Re: KR Zero-One 02 released

Sorry, it was in reference to this. This is a nice start and chance of pace from the recent kamen rider series. The weekly bad guys can now henshin and we got a secondary rider just on episode 2? Well looks like this is going to be more like a super sentai than the traditional kamen rider and hopefu...

Re: KR Zero-One 02 released

There have been multi rider shows several times in the past but they never really felt like Sentai to me. There's a difference between working together and working as a team. Not to mention that riders are often at odds with one another for various reasons.

Re: KR Zero-One 02 released

When was the last time we've seen this much property damage? I love it. Also can we talk about that next ep preview?

Re: Worst Heisei Riders

I don't think it was beholden to Kuuga. There was just a nod that Kuuga happened. And I suppose the reason G3 was weak is because it was never meant to fight the Unknown. No other Kuuga references exist. Not to mention the characters were likable. My only criticism is the writer's urge to constantly...

Re: Worst Heisei Riders

I mean I don't really hate any if the ones I like the least. I just like them the least.

Zi-O is kinda terrible but I don't hate it.
