[09:07] <Phoenix512> so they aren't attacking just Japan?
[09:07] <Phoenix512> this isn't my KR
[09:07] <PHurricane> I can't wait to find out what the rules are for this time-manipulation
[09:08] <Phoenix512> is this Car Formers but smaller
[09:08] <Phoenix512> *Car Robots
[09:08] <PHurricane> I'm honestly not sure how to react to this
[09:09] <PHurricane> The cars almost feel like a Go-Onger throwback
[09:09] <Phoenix512> if they talk, then it's a Go-Onger throwback
[09:10] <Phoenix512> wow, they actually had a countdown on the sponser eyecatch
[09:10] <PHurricane> Is it Clover Freeze he just said?
[09:10] <Phoenix512> I don't know
[09:11] <Phoenix512> we go back after the episode
[09:11] <PHurricane> Those are some practical shoe boots
[09:11] <Phoenix512> I can't believe she threw her boot at him
[09:11] <Phoenix512> go 7:00 and wait
[09:12] <Slowking> hey guys, what minute are you at?
[09:12] <Slowking> thanks phoenix
[09:12] <Phoenix512> play now
[09:12] <Phoenix512> you missed a throwing shoe and some Car Robot throwbacks
[09:12] <Slowking> this is the second time im watching it
[09:13] <Phoenix512> you super dirty raw whore
[09:13] <Slowking> i really like how the driver fits into the car
[09:13] <PHurricane> so, they expect their cars to talk?
[09:13] <Phoenix512> it's Knight Rider
[09:13] <Slowking> what happens if the car gets stolen and the driver is inside?
[09:13] <PHurricane> I'm sure that'll be a plot at some point
[09:14] <Phoenix512> then it's You're Under Arrest the Kamen Rider edition
[09:14] <Slowking> yes hide it, hide it
[09:15] <PHurricane> okay, I don't think he knew the car was sentient before that
[09:15] <Phoenix512> that's a horrible fate
[09:15] <Phoenix512> you die and become red
[09:16] <Slowking> a kinda original idea
[09:16] <Slowking> i like it
[09:16] <PHurricane> ow
[09:16] <Slowking> that must have hurt
[09:16] <Phoenix512> I would imagine Drive would have the ability to resist the time effect
[09:16] <PHurricane> that looked like they borrowed the toqger cannon CGI
[09:17] <Phoenix512> but I guess just having the belt doesn't do it
[09:17] <Slowking> reminds me of kids' toy car ads
[09:17] <PHurricane> I guess they didn't have a lot of options, but the cars really look like plastic toys
[09:18] <Phoenix512> I would imagine there will be a die cast set of all the cars
[09:18] <Slowking> yeah that's my only complaint about the designs so far
[09:18] <Slowking> drive and his car and even belt look really good
[09:18] <Slowking> cars too fake
[09:19] <Phoenix512> is the woman cop an artist who was force to become a cop
[09:20] <PHurricane> He's really calm about a talking belt attaching itself to him
[09:20] <Phoenix512> I think after experiencing time distortions, he can deal with that
[09:21] <Phoenix512> it's 029!
[09:21] <Slowking> lol
[09:21] <Slowking> more cms?!
[09:21] <PHurricane> all of the new candy
[09:21] <Phoenix512> I can't wait for the Gashpbon ad for Drive
[09:21] <Slowking> interesting how they didn't begin from monster 001
[09:21] <Slowking> etc.
[09:21] <PHurricane> no, too early for Christmas cakes!
[09:21] <Phoenix512> where you can win your own Drive race car bed
[09:21] <Slowking> luna should order her cake soon
[09:22] <Phoenix512> I think 001 died in the beginning of the episode
[09:22] <Slowking> yeah i meant it's weird the writers didn't make ep1's monster 001
[09:23] <Phoenix512> just orange?
[09:23] <Slowking> just henshin dammit
[09:24] <PHurricane> woah, she's already in on it?
[09:24] <Slowking> heh nice parallel with the hand in blood
[09:24] <Phoenix512> there's no way she has that many bullets
[09:24] <Slowking> that jump
[09:24] <Slowking> lol
[09:24] <Phoenix512> she's telling you to be a man
[09:24] <Phoenix512> and transform
[09:24] <Slowking> what you dont need her to tell you to henshin
[09:24] <Slowking> lol
[09:24] <Slowking> MAN UP
[09:25] <PHurricane> if she already knew, why didn't she henshin?
[09:25] <Phoenix512> classic KR main character thing that chicks can't be the main KR ever
[09:26] <PHurricane> huh, I liked the suit better without the tire
[09:26] <Slowking> ok i really like the henshin
[09:26] <Slowking> again for a future ep, without his car will he be lacking the tyre?
[09:26] <Phoenix512> no it's Sparkling
[09:27] <PHurricane> why bother having the tire rev if you slide on your leg?
[09:27] <Phoenix512> yeah that was weird
[09:28] <PHurricane> looks like the car is semi-magic as well
[09:28] <Phoenix512> the Roimunid designs are too similar to each other
[09:28] <PHurricane> I wonder if that's what the "R" on the car/belt stands for
[09:28] <Phoenix512> I can't wait how they explain Drive's powers being similar to Roimunid
[09:29] <Phoenix512> yes Kivat
[09:29] <PHurricane> so, the enemies are legitimately floating numbers?
[09:29] <Slowking> the purple tyre looks like a toy :/
[09:29] <Phoenix512> we are trailing on Yu-gi-oh Zexal territory
[09:30] <Phoenix512> and 029 escapes like a bitch
[09:30] <PHurricane> 029 escapes like the number of the day on Sesame Street
[09:31] <PHurricane> That toy is pretty elaborate
[09:31] <Slowking> i hope they don't overdo it with the number of tyres available to him
[09:31] <PHurricane> we saw, what, 4 in the first episode?
[09:32] <Phoenix512> oh yeah they are doing a Skylanders thing for KR
[09:32] <Slowking> yeah 4
[09:32] <PHurricane> wow
[09:32] <Phoenix512> it's Johnny 5
[09:32] <Slowking> lol
[09:32] <Phoenix512> but without arms
[09:33] <Slowking> is that w's secret base area?
[09:33] <Slowking> remodelled?
[09:33] <PHurricane> I should not be laughing this hard at the monster's base form
[09:33] <Phoenix512> and Drive the Kamen Rider
[09:34] <PHurricane> Good grief Right
[09:34] <Slowking> haha
[09:35] <PHurricane> well, that was something
[09:36] <Phoenix512> I was wrong it wasn't 001 destroyed at the end
[09:36] <Phoenix512> *beginning
[09:36] <Slowking> i like it
[09:36] <Phoenix512> actually none of them were destroyed
[09:36] <Slowking> as long as they don't spam new tyres every 1-2 weeks
[09:37] <Slowking> then the show will be able to focus on what's important
[09:37] <PHurricane> I'll probably be okay as long as I stop laughing at the plastic cars constantly beeping and the terrifying floating numbers
[09:37] <Phoenix512> Gaim kinda of spam Lockseeds at the beginning
[09:38] <Phoenix512> the one guy will probably be "I told you this will be like W!"
[09:39] <PHurricane> It's Rider...if you look hard enough, you can find similarities with every prior series
[09:39] <Slowking> in theory it has things in common
[09:39] <Slowking> but I got a completely different feeling than what I got from W
[09:39] <Phoenix512> it's a not bad start
[09:39] <Slowking> so there's that
[09:39] <Slowking> good start and i'm looking forward to next week's ep
[09:40] <Phoenix512> I would like to know completely what's going on though
[09:40] <PHurricane> I have a feeling a lot of the explanation will come once the translations are up, so yeah, good start
[09:40] <PHurricane> Next week looks like it will establish the villain side of things
