Another Ending Part I: Kamen Rider Brave & Kamen Rider Snipe released

Wiki
Part 2 Kamen Rider Paraox with Kamen Rider Poppy >

The movie started off strong, then I was reminded of why I don't like Brave or anything to do with Saki. Taiga was also a bit ruined here too.

I probably should have known things would have turned out shitty when the gamer from American has the name Luke Kidman and he looks like he's about to catch some Pokemon in real life.

Ex-Aid, you have a problem with women. I thought it was kind of funny that all your female doctors look like they're porno doctors, but the treatment of Saki and Nico is kind of weird and gross.

Saki is your typical fridged woman, she's killed off to give Hiiro and Taiga some motivation. But she's never really given any agency, and she forgives Hiiro for being a bad boyfriend in the end. It's like, no, if Saki ever comes back to life, she should not be with Hiiro. I actually liked the Saki that we met in this flashback (did we know they were in med school before?) She seemed fun and she seemed like she cared about Hiiro. But then they use it as a "Oh she knew he was a studyholic all this time, so she was dumb to be upset with him for ignoring her." Also she forgives him in the end and disappears again for no reason, and that felt really forced.

Nico is treated like a prize to be won by Luke. Come on bro, you're making gamers look bad. Don't try to trick her into going on a date with you. And that's sort of weird, because he was clearly being handsy with her at the beginning and she wasn't into it. So why does she go with him to America just because Taiga rejects her? I honestly don't know wtf happened there, but I guess that happened.

Honestly, the stuff with the women really ruined the movie which I had previously been enjoying. I was actually laughing at the over the top melodrama. You can almost predict the dumb beats. Hiiro grabbing Taiga by the shirt. Them fighting it out for no reason. Taiga firing Nico. So Taiga played doctor with Nico, eh? It's stupid and fun and that's when Ex-Aid is probably best. When it tries to take itself seriously, it sort of falls on its face.

Hiiro, save Saki, because you were a shitty boyfriend. Then let her go and live her own life. That cake shop gal seems kind of nice. Maybe ask her out?

Y'know, Lovelica returning was kinda annoying. No one will miss you, fatass. Suwabe's in better stuff than this too.

The way this special treats girls and women aside, I feel this is 3rd place. The battles are eh, the drama's too cliched, there should've been more drafting for this in the writing dept.
Kamen Rider Ryuki>PUBG/Fortnite. The Battle Royale's bare essentials is great and all but I want more than just that.

Nope! Nope! Fuck this movie!

Maybe it's cause I watched after the Santa Fe school shooting, but Luke's whole schtick of "go out with me cause I love you" is just fucking insulting at best. I have absolutely no desire to see him onscreen ever again and would cheerfully punch the writer in the dick. Toei's track record with women is not great but this? This sets my teeth on edge.

The sound editor needs to be fired, there were lots of times when the dialogue was damn near inaudible due to the background music

I honestly had a hard time watching this movie and most of it was because of how the writers handled the women in this movie. It felt like bad writing to me and I really didn't understand why Nico just left like that instead of staying with Taiga. This is at least a 1 star out of 5 for me

Is this suppose to be a retread or something? I feel like I have seen this before only it ties into something.

What’s with the sexy doctor, Saiko was it? Movie if your plan was to make me look at her like that, I’d probably look up her actress’s gravure pictures

That Luke kid proclaims himself to be a rival to Nico only because he wanted her to be his girlfriend, get out of here you’re making gamers look bad for something like that. And Nico just complies because she goes to America but why you have no reason to go there with him. And all because Taiga wants to let her go? Dude why

Hey lovlica is back but who asked for him? At least he got to say some final words when he dies but who cares. Hey Kuroto, if you wanted to get the Kamen Rider Chronicle gashat, why not just sneak into Taiga’s clinic and steal it, this is so unnecessary to the point where it hurts, even by your standards. Also riders, you’re doctors use your heads, things wouldn’t be so hard if you use your heads and everything would turn out fine

Overall The fights are not spectacular, plot feels like a retread of Hiro attempting to get Saki back again and what it means in the long run is unnecessary just to make this part relevant in the long run. Probably the worst one of the trilogy, like the songs for them feels a quality giveaway for which one may suck and which one may be good

Whats the point of this? Brave and Snipe are the most boring of the Riders and we have a bit that involves Brave losing his girlfriend for the 3rd time and Taiga being a stubborn jackass for the millionth time.

Hiiro should control his emotions especially when it comes to Saki, in the end he saved her.

Taiga shouldn't use that Kamen Rider Chronicle Gashat, until I saw the scene when he paused and frees her.

Alright, I finally got a chance to sit down and watch this one. It was a decent enough movie, but Takenoko isn't wrong. The handling of Nico in particular was really weird; either this is setting up drama to bring her back in a later movie, or perhaps someone at Toei decided to pull a 180 after realizing that the characters are meant to be a good 10 years apart.

I did however like having Lovelica back. He's humorous in small doses, and this movie was just the right dose. Plus given the threads the writers decided to pull here with Taiga and Hiiro, he's the perfect Bugster to bring back.

And it goes without saying that I would have liked to see more and more elaborate fights. But it's clear that these post-series movies will never be high budget affairs; there's no toy line to help fund them. But hey, it's great to see Chronos actually used for good instead of god damned Dan Sr. (Oh god, they're not going to bring him back, right?!)

PS Oh Dan, how I've missed your mania! :D And you have good taste in co-conspirators too :shock:

So Taiga played doctor with Nico, eh?
I'm very curious whether that was a literal translation, or if you guys took liberties with that. Because I don't know whether to credit you or Toei for making me crack up at 4 in the morning. :lol:

As the one who's normally picky about audio, I had no issues. But admittedly I'm also not the one who had to sub it...

Whelp. They went there. It took a whole season, but they finally went there. :lol:

And I guess this means Taiga went from being an unethical doctor to being an unethical boss! :shock:
