I was going to give it a 2/5 then i remembered that it hasn't reached the levels of Wizard of bad so i give it 3/5.
Where in the first part it didn't know where to go, this second half feels like they put too many abrupt developments.
Other thing is Go, I can't stand that guy, it would have been better if he was a bad guy from the beginning, he's so annoying.

Just because they got monsters of 2weeks doesn't means the story goes the same . Drive was almost Agito. While he fought the monsters of the weeks 2-3 and save some character development or what happens on last event still continued or leave it on cliffhanger.

My rate is 4*.. If the storyline to slow compared to Gaim, Gaim was too many things happened per episodes and story went so well as well as characters.

I'll say Tomari character was good development and so Kiriko and Chase.. I still don't like Go twisted character. On first 2 episodes of his debut he was kind of cool. But day by day im getting annoyed. Its like his acting kinda off bit to me. But now since Chaser debut comeback as Kamen Rider, Go character was improved ... Lets just hope the momentum of the plots doesn't let us down...

15 out of 5. Yes, it is that good that it overloads the rating system.

The only thing that annoys me is the lack of unique power ups for Mach. I mean, Dead Heat is shared between Drive and Mach.

Go's personality is more confusing than annoying.,, But it looks like that'll be explained in 28 (based on the preview and the final few minutes of 27).

I also noted someone compared Drive to Go-Busters. The fandom's dislike of Go-Busters has always confused me. I mean, the show deserves a 10 out of 10.

But back to Drive. I want to see an unique super form for Mach, and Go's weirdness explained.

EDIT: W was great, no doubt. But OOO was better, Fourze was better, Wizard was even better than that. Every single season just gets better and better.

Other people's opinion doesn't particularly interest me. Kamen Rider Wizard was amazing, though it had a disappointing ending... but Gaim also had a disappointing ending.

OOO is the last KR that ended the way it should have. A big battle against the primary bad guy, that didn't end in his surrender (Fourze), assassination (Wizard), or in a movie character returning for revenge after the big battle (Gaim).

But - like i told the Mass Effect whiners - a disappointing ending isn't going to stop me loving the show. W set a very high standard when it came to KR awesomeness... and every KR after it has been even more amazing than the one before. That includes Wizard (Infinity. Please) and Drive (Drive! Type Formula!)

SpoilerShow
Rumor has it that formula isn't his final form. If true, the second half of Drive is set to be even more amazing than the first.

I'm giving it a 4. 3.5 to be precise. It certainly seems to suffer a bit being Gaim's successor, plus returning to the two-parter mainly series is part of the problem I saw since the story doesn't quite have the pulling in factor. Thankfully, Drive doesn't have a 'Shunpei' character in it, Gen-san and the Chief is nearing into 'Shunpei'-type character. But credit to Sanjo, he managed to prevent that by adding a bit layer to both character, making Gen-san seemingly like a senior to Tomariand the Chief to be.....well exactly like how a Chief should be.

The mystery cases in Drive is ok though some really stuck in memory like the episodes that has BoukenPink/BoukenBlue's cameo, Kyu's Roidmude, and Rinna's ex-boyfriend. The series overall as of now is developing, and by the look of it, seems to be more exciting. With Drive's identity revealed to the world ala Tony Stark, Go's conflict with Chase despite Chase being his own sister's savior, and the Roidmude already penetrated the police force, the hype is already there for me. The hype is not as strong as Gaim's due to both show being under different premises, but at the very least it's there.

I wouldn't call that rumor, final forms usually (not always, just usually) turn up around the mid to late 30s.

The Kamen Rider formula for final forms are usually around episode 32. And secondary riders usually get their "final" forms before (i.e Meteor Storm, Baron Lemon Energy) or after (i.e Accel Trial) the main riders get their final forms.


I give Drive a 3 since its not that bad, it has a story line but it barely mentions it at all. Go is just plain annoying which I feel the majority of the viewers hate about him as well.

Agito got his in 43
Ryuki, Blade, Kabuto were 34
Faiz, Den-O were 39
Hibiki was 33
W, OOO, Fourze and Gaim were 32
Wizard was 31
Kiva was 24
Decade was 21

So, it seems mostly the Main Riders who were post-Decade kept their final forms around 32; everyone else (for the most part) had theirs around the mid to late-30s, as I had said before.

I'm liking it. The last few episodes have been kind of average though. Agree it would be better without Go and just Chase as a secondary rider.

right? The show would have been better off without Go. For some reason I just don't like Go, the writers wrote his character terrible.

His character has just really re-enforced the hit or miss of introducing new characters as secondary riders.

Characters are kinda uninteresting, but I like the Rider suits in this one. The story is also kinda bland as well as the villains as they don't really do much to stand in the way of Drive and co. Plus, their motives are still a mystery and we're halfway in... Anyways, I'm still enjoying it so far. It just has a few things I don't like, but it also has some good points to it.
