I dunno, I thought it was just okay. It's nice to see Tawada Hideya in a role where he doesn't play that awful character, Takigawa Kinji. But he's still sort of a doofus?

The costume is cool, but I wouldn't do a whole story about it. And what's with Toei and weird ninja stories?

Well, it wasn't bad.

Wasn't particularly good either. The problem is, they're trying to shove a series-worth of backstory into like 3 minutes so it just becomes exposition-blabbing. Boring!

The scroll frog was kinda cute though.

I can't wait 3 years until we get solid hologrammatic bonsai.

Is it just me, or does Shinobi and Hattari's helmets look like a repainted Ride-Player helmet from Ex-Aid under their symbols?

Hahahaha. No it's not the best thing ever but I did like how deliciously cheesy it was.

So Shinobi is based on Jiraiya, who's Hattari based on? His animal appears to be some kind of wasp-like thing?

Loving shinobi's references. Enjoyed shinobi throwing a match against a cowboy ninja in gold, enjoying the accidental incest crush (more ninninger references!), loved the opening being heavily influenced by ninninger's opening especially with the villain reveal thing, the frog stuff, the fight to become the last ninja (whatever they called it in this), etc. I think it's a bit of an issue that my favourite parts were all the little references to a bad sentai i disliked rather than anything that actually happened in the plot, but since it's just a cute little mini-series thing i'm not judging it too harshly. Do we know how many episodes this is getting? i hope this isn't another Kaiju Ward where it's like "Here's episode 1! but we're not gonna tell you how many episodes this is gonna be or when they'll come!" kinda deal. I'm also hopeful that now they have rammed all the exposition into the first episode, that episode 2 onwards will just be about moving the plot forward and stuff.

I don't get why they decided they needed to do a miniseries about this guy, when out of the three future riders he didn't really get a proper arc?

How is there such a disconnect between how good the Ryuki Rider Time special was Vs. this one?

Perhaps that's precisely why? he didn't get much of an arc in the show because they knew they were doing this spin-off? *shrug*

Inoue Toshiki is writing the Ryuki one while Kaneko Kaori did Shinobi who only did 4 episodes of Lupin VS Pat and the Girlfriends Army special.

I really like the backstory for this. I enjoyed it, but the main problem is that they're trying to put a series worth of story in...what...three episodes? This totally would have benefited from being a full on series. With some tweaks of course.

I dunno, I think this is shaping up to be a really fun, abridged, what-if Kamen Rider show, which I think is what it's selling itself as.

Surely there have been several people before who had the thought 'what if Naruto was like Kamen Rider?'.

Forgot to say something to this, but it was already known that all the future riders use bits of existing rider suits, Shinobi being a Ride-Player head on Ghost's body and Quiz being the reverse for example. Hattari on the other hand, is clearly Dark Drive painted orange. Personally I think it's a good look.
