see episode 2 first ok dude
but Fourze was the worst.. just beat the hell out of monster.. but thats Gentarou's style coz he is nice and friendly look alike delinquent =P
You said "At last... after so many post Decade-rider," so, I was only making a joking remark about Double and OOO, since I thought it was talking about the Heisei Riders since Decade, not all Kamen Rider. Also, what does ep. 2 of Wizard have to do with this? Best to leave that out, to not provide spoilers.
thats why i never mention anything but only to wait for episode 2 to be release =D

Didn't like the hand on sword it could be more like hand on belt but I guess they couldn't prevent themselves making that "shake hand" parody

Rings could be a little smaller and still can be distinctive enough since they are already zooming on hand when he puts one on but considering oversize complex of japanese I should be glad with just that rings are just covering two or three fingers instead of whole hand.

Otherwise I enjoyed this show alot especially main characters attitude it has been a while last we saw someone confident and knows what is he doing (last time was decade I think)

just watched the pilot episode today and yes.. i have tons of expectations for this series. the concept, the plot, and the Kamen Rider himself: almost perfect. i suddenly remember W in him. i guess i have to wait for EP2 to confirm myself that i'll continue watching this, but nevertheless, great series so far! :)

I find myself with mixed feelings about this rider. It's just that high after a great series...(Yes, I know I'm probably the only one in this thread that liked Fourze).

The guy himself? Awesome.

The suit? The guy can make it look good and the suit actor just brings out the best in it.

But I still get reminded of the jewel dopant
.

the henshin? I... feel so cheated

the belt? cheated and annoyed.

the idea? I like it.

Execution? Over the top but not in the most entertaining way.

Overall the start reminds me of Kiva. Some riders you watch for the grit, others for the entertainment factor. Fourze was the latter for me and I find Wizard to be a rather neutral start. It had its good points but it felt a bit sloppy. I dunno but the points I didn't like just jumped out at me like a tiger on a scared gazelle. I'm hoping that I'll like this in time.

Thanks for the work TV-N staff.

I find the first episode very nice :p Especially the fights, I found it very well executed.
The characters are also interesting and I hope that it will have a nice story.

Did someone else get a karas feeling when he transforms?

Well, it's just that I'm usually in awe of a rider's henshin. It makes you feel like some kind of switch was just flipped that hailed an ass kicking. When Wizard did his henshin, there was no click to it for me.

The belt... reminds me of Kiva's sword which had to be reset every or every other use. The jingle drives me up the wall but I'm getting used to it. What really annoys me is when he uses the style rings and they keep repeating it like a twin maximum from W. The belt cheated me too because... seriously, that belt is being operated in a way that makes it look like it needs a manual but at the same time all you really need to do is rest your ringed hand over the buckle.

Shaking hands with your sword is also a very very odd way to get stuff pass the radar :mrgreen:

EDIT: Just curious but at 9:43 Isn't it supposed to be "It's not that I don't give in to despair because I have my magic" instead of "I don't give in to despair because I have magic"?

consider it a nitpick if you will :lol:
