Kamen Rider ZO Released

Yeah, big surprise that I'm making this topic...

Anyways, it's a very entertaining movie. A great music score, an actual in-depth story considering the length (just under 50 minutes), well-staged action scenes, and some awesome suit designs. Personally, I think it's a wonderful movie to watch whenever you're bored. Short, pretty simple, yet oh so fun! Watching this in a triple feature with Kamen Rider J and Kamen Rider World is one my favorite timekillers.

Any comments on this early TV-N classic?

I think ZO was a great movie too. I thought that the movie had a Terminator vibe to it, but that's only a bonus in my opinion.

This is probably the closest thing I'm going to get to watching classic KR. I enjoyed it.

I'm a big fan of ZO. It's what sparked my interest in the older stuff.

This is the show that got me into tv-nihon so I'm exited to have been able to help re-release it. Story goes, a few years ago I was remembering the old Masked Rider ZO on the sega cd and decided to try and find the actual movie without the poor english dub. When I found that here I also tried the other rider that was being subbed at the time, Blade. After that I was hooked. I decided I wanted to help sub something so I applied and learned to time, followed by typesetting, karaoke, and encoding. And here I am, able to release the very show that got me here. It's Awesome! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did and still do. :D

Edit: Also, did you know the suit actor for Doras is the same suit actor for most of the modern riders including the current rider, Kiva. He's a great suit actor that's for sure.

So one day I said, I wish we could redo ZO to Cheetah.

Then Cheetah did it and said "contract complete".

Then the guy opened a gate into me and jumped through. That was weird.

My version of the story goes like this. I was talking to Takenoko and said we should re-release ZO and he said, "We can't," and I was like, "NO WAY!" and then he was all, "What? How did you do it?" That was great. :D



btw: the cake is a lie

Yeah, I don't even remember why we were talking about ZO. But for some reason you asked me for a link to where one can purchase the DVD and I just provided it without thinking. Then you asked to see the script. I guess because of the way you phrased it, I didn't make the connection till after it was already started

lol

cheetah played the take and won

this was a fun movie, even at the 2nd time of seeing it, Cheetah has done some great typesetting on this, the karaoke's are great, wont be long before he is challanging Ais in the karaoke dept,

I wonder how many people got the hints that were dropped in the channel for the last couple of weeks

SpoilerShow
I didnt realise Doras was an evil Kamen Rider till I watched the making of,

Also The Batman, what a choice of names,

Bit surprised to hear that this was 90 mins long when the finished it and they preceded to junk nearly half of it, would be cool if they did a full Directors Cut of this movie


one final thing

RIDER!

I didn't know Doras had a name. I always thought he was a Rider of some sort simply because he had a bug theme. Kamen Rider Terminator

The cut footage was pretty interesting, but I'm kind of glad they took it out. The goofy expressions Rider had throughout it would have taken away from the mood. Also, what's the deal with Doras being alive in the end? Setup for a sequel?
