KR Zi-O 17 released

Last week's Zi-O rating: 3.88 / 5 (17 votes)

Alt Title: Woz iz going on?

Sorta enjoyable. Not sure how much of this is going to contribute to the main storyline, or if it's just a goofy side arc for the New Year's.

Almost wish we had more of Kamen Rider Shinobi, since he looked pretty cool. It'd make sense if Shinobi were a joke Rider, since I think they've wanted to do a ninja-themed Rider for a while.

Another Woz is fine. It's interesting to see him side with Geiz... buttt.... Geiz doesn't do anything in this episode and his presence has been kind of fading lately? Geiz just worked together with Zi-O in the last episode, but now they're enemies again? Like okay?

Kind of disappointing considering the story and energy was much better in the previous episode before the break. Feels like a lot of setup.

Random note - Tsukuyomi's winter outfit is quite nice.

The timeline has been compromised, bringing forth the third rider of this show, an extra Rider that was not supposed to exist and a new future where Geiz righteously defeats the Demon King. Where are the Timerangers?!

Oh wonderful. To show the fearsome capabilities of the 3rd Rider, he’s a Reality Warper. Boring gamebreaker. The Beyondriver's eh. And his civilian shades is purchasable on Amazon.

Seems Shinobi’s transformation has references from the Ninja-themed Super Sentai series, from Kakuranger (Ninjablack’s God Gammer/Frog, summoning a mecha from a scroll), Hurricaneger (mecha internals) and Ninninger (spinning a shuriken-themed transformation trinket). Apt that Hideya Tawada (Kinji/Starninger) is playing this guy and the MOTW.

Hope the main Riders can screw destiny.
So... Zangetsu VS Sirfetch'd Death Battle when??

Yeah, HD version torrent still not working. I'm not sure if it's just a seeder issue per se, because it's doing weird things in the client in general. The torrent might be corrupted.

You know, given Woz is supposedly allied with Geiz, I wish his visor was in hiragana, not katakana.

I'm hoping the updated narration at the start is a sign we're moving past half-arsed tribute episodes, and moving into proper plot territory, because this show's definitely better at the latter.

Kinda meh episode, tbh. I love the meta-ness of Kinji becoming a Rider. Well done for using the Ninninger henshin font for Shinobi's jingle, by the way. Woz as a Rider is pretty cool, having the single most broken ability a Rider could have. Maybe it would've been better if the Woz from Oma Zi-O 2068 became a Rider, but a different version of Woz is fine. Kinda wish they didn't introduce Woz as a Rider until the next episode so the mystery around Another Woz could have more time to build.

The BeyonDriver looks cool, as does the Jikan Despear and the Woz base suit. Love the transformation effects for Woz (he even keeps the hat on while transforming).

Well I liked it, but its a mixed bag again :/

Sougo seems to be growing half an inch more of a personality (or at least his acting is getting better) and Another Woz is even hammier than Woz which I wasn't sure was even possible. I'm also guessing this is where Decade vanishes entirely for an arc or two, which sucks. The Rider Woz suit isn't all that different from Zi-O or Geiz at base, but somehow it just looks way too busy for me, and somehow they managed to take Necrom's neon lime green and make it even more eye gouging. Also we are now into full on Sailor Moon/Voltron transformation sequence territory, like seriously, you could run up and stab the guy with how long it takes for him to transform.

Overall though I do like the idea of agents of conflicting future timelines duking it out in the past for dominance.

There's a lot to take in all at once and it won me over with all it's flash and excitement. Time will tell how much I like this arc as it goes along, but I'm totally on board right now. We're technically still doing what we have been doing from the start: Fighting Another Riders in one episode and then getting their matching Rider Form in the next episode. But all this intrigue about the different futures and the inclusion of a new rider is just enough to make it feel fresh to me.

Speaking of, Alternate Woz, or White Woz, made quite the debut. Just like with Grease, I'm sure it won't be that long before his apparent overpowered-ness goes away but wow does he feel overpowered with the ability to write the future. Of course he claims it's not quite controlling the future which gives an excuse for that ability to be exactly as useful as it needs to be at any given time.

I dig all the music effects from the BeyondDriver but Kamen Rider Woz himself is going to have to grow on me overtime as a design. It's got so much of that green and not nearly enough of blue to keep it from looking over-saturated.

Anyhow, Geiz now has a hype-man of his own. I look forward to when he gets some new form down the line and our new Woz will give a grand speech to go along with it.

I'm calling it right now, but I speculate that sometime very late into the show's run, this new Woz will die and the Woz we've known will take over as a Kamen Rider. That just seems like the kind of development that would happen, wouldn't it?

Since Woz is the most over regular character on the show it makes perfect sense for him to do double duty. I wonder if Decade (after the stage play) will come back and take Geiz and Woz Classic to the Kamen Rider Woz version of the future and they find out that the alternate future is worse than the Zi-O version?

I wonder if they are going to do a series of future riders based on Super Sentai? They won't be able to do Kamen Rider Lupin because they already have D-End and Kamen Rider Accel is also to similar to the Pat rangers, but you could do Kamen Rider Pirate, Kamen Rider Samurai, and Kamen Rider Dinosaur.

I wonder if they will have yet another timeline where Kamen Rider Oha appears from, claiming that she is a supporter of the person who defeated Zi-O, Tsukuyomi, and then decade shows them that this future stinks worse the the Zi-O timeline as well.

I also wonder if this is the first step of a Heure baby face turn? If Swartz and Kamen Rider Woz are in cahoots then Heure could start feeling really used.

Let's hope Geiz grows as a character to match it, otherwise this won't be a very interesting conflict, considering he just decided to side with Sougo in the last episode.

I'm guessing this "Oma Day" thing will be fairly soon, probably related to
