So, why is it that KR Woz gets a better intro fight than Zi-O's Decade form? This is the one-sided, high production values beat down fight I've been waiting for since Zi-O got his first upgrade. I'm glad someone finally got to kick some ass, but I do wish it were the main character.
So a Rider that fights with the power of future Riders, eh? The concept is inherently a bit weird since of course these Riders won't actually be future series. But I like the symmetry of it compared to where Zi-O and Gaiz draw their powers from. And I find it extremely amusing that his motif is a smartwatch, the natural evolution of a segment display digital watch.
KR Woz also has a surprisingly nice henshin sequence, especially compared to how bland Zi-O/Geiz is. Now it goes on for too long, so they're going to have to tighten that up, but at least it shows some more imagination than a bad green-screened world spinning effect.
I'm not sure I dig Another Woz himself though. Granted it's only been one episode, but he comes off as so sure of himself and his mission that he plays very flat. OG Woz is kind of a one note character as well, but it's like they took OG Woz and removed all of the excitement.
Also, please may this not be a repeat of Build and involve the hero getting his ass kicked left and right for the next 10 episodes...

Almost wish we had more of Kamen Rider Shinobi, since he looked pretty cool. It'd make sense if Shinobi were a joke Rider, since I think they've wanted to do a ninja-themed Rider for a while.
Well Toei did make a complete suit here. We've yet to see them recycle suits in this series, but it's going to be coming. Toei is not one to briefly use a whole suit for an episode or two and then never again. So I'd certainly expect more Shinobi.
Random note - Tsukuyomi's winter outfit is quite nice.
Interestingly, it's a different outfit still than the one I noticed a couple of weeks back. I'm not sure if they're giving her a wardrobe variety (for as much variety as you can have in white, anyhow), or if they felt the need to add even more layers (homegirl still looked cold in the last outfit).

I'm calling it right now, but I speculate that sometime very late into the show's run, this new Woz will die and the Woz we've known will take over as a Kamen Rider. That just seems like the kind of development that would happen, wouldn't it?
Your call has been logged. And I expect you'll probably end up right.

and somehow they managed to take Necrom's neon lime green and make it even more eye gouging.
Right? Necrom's suit wasn't terrible
, but this design doesn't do anything to improve upon the previous abuse of lime green. Toei could have done better here.
