Yeah, not particularly loving the Mage design, but oh well.

Lotta places are drawing connections between Faiz and Wizard. Only connection I see, or care, is Mage - Riotrooper similarity. Both riders of, well, ambiguous purposes mass produced in the movie as mooks.

Mage is fine as a generic nobody Rider in the movie. For Mayu though, it seems like a wasted opportunity. I mean, Mage doesn't really look too different from the Ghuls too me. For a show that makes a new monster suit every two weeks, don't you think you could have come up with something better than that?
That's my exact problem. I don't like the suit too much anyway but knowing it's the generic grunt suit for the movie really ruins the effect for me that she's supposed to be important. Was it really so hard to make a new suit for her?

Well the movie isn't released until August, right? So even if Mayu is just another KR Mage, at least she debuts first. Technically, the movie's Mages would be copying her.

If it were so easy to mass-copy her it doesn't matter if she came first. Just means she's cheap.

Dang I was really hoping for MAyu' s belt to follow ETM's suggestion. "Like totally" :P

Anyway, I loved the Phantomś plan. :) I also loved Nitou's look of pure bliss when he stole Shunpei's bike to attack the phantom.

The picture that was posted sums up my feelings on Mayu's change as well.

I'm annoyed at the preview at the end of this episode, way to spoilery. Normally it's a lot more tease like.

Kid becomes a mage, but apparently doesn't want to. Medusa escapes her first encounter wihth Mayu (probably by strolling away)
Only good part is WW's magic spear stick thing.

That encapsulates my feelings perfectly... It just seems so sad that a show can have such a strong sense of design at the start, but by the end be so half-assed. I can't decided if it is overall laziness, poor application of buget, or both. :?

I think it's time for "Beast, The Wizard" to get another form. Maybe that'll take our minds off the poorly design costume, that is "Kamen Rider Mage."

My thought:

IT was great!

Observations:

Kizaki stopped Haurto from messing with his phone!

Sora was actually there and not just a stock clip.

Mayu is Mage!

Kousuke helping out Yuzuru, that camp fire scene made me shed tears.

Having Sylphi make the bike hit Akari was cruel, Sora, you know how to pick them!

Well that was a disappointing Rider costume design. It looks just like a Riotrooper from Faiz. Did Toei forget that they are still fresh in our minds after seeing them in action during the Decade series? I'm cool with having a female Rider though it was just the design that got me disappointed. Also, I thought Nitou was going to get a motorcycle in this show too. But I guess not. Instead, he helps teach a kid to ride a bicycle. The main plot of this episode was understandable but I still think it was forced just to give us a reason to care for the characters being introduced.

What's with the monster hand? You'd think Mayu would atleast have normal hands, being special and all.
coz she use that hand to do things to Fueki after training session =P

Whose the girl who played Akari? for research purposes :D
That costume looks kinda generic, a rider army maybe, just my opinion though.

there seem to be a belief in media around the world that if 5 years have pass, no one remembers what happened and you can do the same thing again,

Well, while I would have liked her to get an actual Rider suit, I kind of get why she's using the generic movie Rider suit, aside from the whole aspect of using things from the movie in the series. Still, I was hoping that purple magic stone was for her I guess you can't just be Haruto lucky and get four magic stones all at once :/
