W 04 Released

Post by Phoenix512 »

The detectives bet their memories on the line as they try to get the life coins back.

Spoiler
Nice way of beating the gambler at his own game by using the DoubleDriver to be in sync with each other. LunaMetal form looks like lots of fun with the whip action. Wakana gives W the title name of Kamen Rider to the duo now. Nice to see people calling the Rider "Kamen Rider" again before Decade. As for Philip's family problem, family is what you make of it not by blood necessary. Nice to see that he considers Shoutarou and Akiko as his family now.

So I guess the Sonozaki cat is also a memory user as well. So we have Terror, Taboo, Clay Doll, and Nazca along with an unknown memory for the cat as the Sonozaki GaiaMemories. I think Clay Doll and Nazca will probably have abilities of manipulation and summoning monsters based on the names alone.

The Luna-Metal Combo is awesome!! This series is getting more and more interesting. The half serious-half funny style is just too anime-styled. :lol:
Wakana sure has a weird way of transforming. And the way tat Nazca guy avoid Wakana's attack looks very funny :lol:

It's interesting that they revealed all the major villain's forms in this episode

I thought it was nice to show that Yuuko at least had decent intentions at first, and was merely corrupted by the gambling. It must have been a pretty quick corruption if she didn't manage to pay off the debts though

Hmmm, kids, don't follow Santa that way!

Nice teamwork between Shou and Philip during the gambling

You know, that bit at the end where Wakana calls them Kamen Rider. Man, that just made me feel so good. It's always cool when the hero goes named

Please keep all bitching about Akiko in this thread

This show gets more and more awesome with every episode. Unlike Decade, you feel like things that are important to the story are happening all the time.

I LOVE the crime family's subplot that has been happening in the background of the cases being solved. I really feel like this show is going to be awesome, start to finish.

Oh yeah, I thought that was great. A good series needs a good antagonist. It's kind of funny how much time is spent just focusing on the bad guy's wedding and Wakana's radio show. But at the same time, it makes the world a lot more interesting.

Clay doll is pretty silly looking, but I guess that explain's Wakana's hair. I don't know what the heck a Nazca is. When I looked it up, apparently it's those symbols that the Indians drew or something? I dunno

I was trying to think of what it reminded me of, and then it hit me, its just like Takumi and Kiba's seperate stories in Faiz. You know they are ultimately going to collide together, but until that happens, there are just moments where they touch.

wow that Luna Metal combo was sick!!

In the words of Maximillion Pegasus: "Remember kids Gambling is good for you" , lol at Shoutaro playing Old Maid instead.

Im still confused as to why Boss Sonozaki would wanna make his "Mr. Bigglesworth" a deadly cat dopant but eh oh well. And just like take said, what the hell is a Nazca?? lol oh well at least Kirihiko's dopant form is cool.

And Wakana reading the rumor on Double, and calling them a Kamen Rider is win!

So we now have seen all of the Joker and Metal combinations.
I think Cyclone Joker is my favorite so far. Heat Joker comes in second, but loses points because it doesn't have a scarf.

Nazca refers to the Nazca Lines, a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert, a high arid plateau that stretches more than 80 kilometres (50 mi) between the towns of Nazca and Palpa on the Pampas de Jumana in Peru. This geoglyphs have odd shapes, which have been taken as mystical or work of UFOs in more than one oportunity. Many videogames and anime make use of this myth, as you'd guess, including Ryuusei no Rockman 2, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, and now, Kamen Rider Double.

Ironic that Takenoko mentions bitching about Akiko when, for once, I actually enjoyed her character. Mainly because of how she got Philip to stop thinking about his family by telling him how Shoutarou wanted to protect him. It was kind of cute.

Luna-Metal is epic. It turned a metallic bo into a whip. That's just too awesome. Heat-Metal, once again, gives the finisher, a good thing in my opinion, as Metal Branding > Joker Extreme.

So, Kamen Rider has meaning once again in this series, and now it's not something as odd as a guy who fights others like him in a world inside of a mirror, a worker for a destroyed company or one that uses a bug-shaped thing and can go at the speed of light. Now, it's literal, a guy who is on a bike and wears a mask. I like how it was introduced, and how Shoutarou and Philip reacted to it. Rather than saying "man, she got our name wrong!" as has happened in more than one series, they accepted the title, and even quoted the previews.

Heh, "Kamen Rider" as a nickname. That's pretty cool.

Then again, what else are you supposed to call a masked man on a bike?

Maybe it's cuz it's a naked man? Kekekeke. Anyway, I think....LUNA METAL IS FREAKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the whole family-companion thing is sorta cheesy, but touching at the same time. I see a strange connection, Nazca and Clay Dolls. Both are relics made by natives...

The gadgets are so useful with all of their functions.

I liked how they safely retrieved the life coins through gambling rather than using a trick during the battle. Akiko had a greedy look on her face collecting up the life coins.

The head for the Nazca Dopant reminds me of the helmet designs used in Bubblegum Crisis.

The Taboo Dopant creeps me out because it reminds me of, the Earthworm Jim character, the Evil Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-filled, Malformed, Slug-for-a-Butt.
