The bad guys seem pretty cool too. They're both pretty attractive and look good in their parts. The monsters are also well designed.
I guess Kamen Rider can't get away from the collectible animal gimmicks. At least familiars make sense for a magician.
I don't know if I like Haruto yet. It's like he has the looks of Wataru, but the confidence of Otoya. From the profile I read before the show started, I thought he'd be more goofy. Is he a playboy, is he polite, is he silly? It's hard to pin down just who he is so far.
Seems like there's a lot of mechanics in this show. People turning into Phantoms and hunting over people to make them into Phantoms seems like a pretty decent premise. The magic being inside people and stuff sort of seemed Den-Oish. But at least Wizard gets to ride MagiDragon.
I'm a bit surprised they showed three styles already. I guess the surprise will be the revelation of the rings he uses with each style. I guess I am a bit disappointed in that Haruto appears to be able to use magic with no visible limitation. I think heroes are a little more interesting when you have a definite sense of what they can and can't do.
