What?
What?!
WHAT!!!!

A TTFC special I actually liked???!!!!!

I gotta admit, I am very pleasantly surprised. Not only did it take less than half an hour to translate (yay!) but it is funny, well-written, and doesn't overstay its welcome. Give me more like this!

A huge thank you to Ookalf for identifying all the bargain bin monsters cause lol I wasn't gonna.
The monsters are Cancer Zodiarts from Fourze, Gremlin from Wizard, Demushu from Gaim, a Ganma Superior from Ghost, Guren Graphite from Ex-Aid, and the Great Leader's monster form from Chou Super Hero Taisen

Yeah, that was short and sweet. Funny and had like a badass moment.

Drive painted green looks surprisingly good.

Question, if this is a special to bid farewell to Heisei, why are we invoking Showa tropes???

The operating room scene is actually a reference to the original Kamen Rider's first episode, where Shocker was also looking for someone with 600 IQ. Hongou Takeshi was also saved by a Shocker scientist. The dialogues also parody that scene.

My guess on what will happen:
SpoilerShow
The scientist is going to be killed by a spider kaijin, just like what happened to that former Shocker scientist.

Because this is Riku Sanjo. The man loves his Showa references.

If the second episode of this releases next month, does this make Brain the first Reiwa rider?

I have no idea why this exists. But I'll take more of it, please!

Right? Though being in the dark also helps. I'm not sure if it would hold up as well under strong studio lights.

My experiences with KR Brain

Oh boy, I do love Drive specials.

*starts watching*
Nice intro.
*blinks*
Oh... It's over.

I was half thinking they were going to do this like they did the Ryuki and Shinobi specials.
