I feel like I'm enjoying these episodes more now that they actually focus on the series own plot as opposed to fucking around with previous Rider series.
This is my stance. Given how poorly the tribute episodes were handled, they should stay as far as possible from them, and just do their own thing.
Seen:
Super Sentai: Zyuranger-Gingaman, Abaranger onwards.
Kamen Rider: All the Heisei/Reiwa series except Amazons and the American shows.
Precure: DokiDoki-Go Pri and the first few episodes of Mahoutsukai and Futari.

I kind of agree, but I'd really just like a best of both worlds sort of thing. You need the main plot, or you get a Decade. But the powers are based on a tribute to past Riders, so make freaking sure that the tributes are good and you're not just burning money bringing guests back to not do anything.

I just hope that they are really showing us the future riders and that all these cool designs are not going just to be used here and then forgotten.

Shinobi looks amazing! it needs to be a future kamen rider series! the other rider from the preview... just wow the future looks great.

They're not future Rider series if that's what you mean. That's just not how it works. You really think they're gonna demand Shinobi's actor comes back in 3 years to do a whole series? Plus the Shinobi Driver is just a variant of the Ziku Driver in design.

Given Zi-O II and Geiz Revive don't have anything to do with Legend Riders, I'm hoping the Legend Rider element is going to be mostly ignored from now on. But we've got Ryuki and Another Ryuga coming soon, so that's unlikely.

I think I'm abit on the fence with this new arc. Sure, it's an improvement compared to the first arc in terms of storytelling, but at the same time the plot just felt fragile - like the elements and characters are struggling to work together and is barely making it. Maybe this is the aftermath of the poor storytelling from the 1st arc. The stakes just doesn't feel high enough, Geiz is still insufferable to me, Tsukuyomi doesn't get enough things to do, the Timejackers keep coming up with half-assed plans that anyone with a quarter more intellect would figure out won't work and the time travel rules keep getting more loose.

The improvements are to be commended. Sougo definitely have more personality now, the White Woz vs Black Woz is an interesting development to the Woz character as a whole and the prospect of future Riders & alternate timelines while not new to KR, is a welcoming addition. It's good to see Zi-O standing on its own feet now without relying on extended cameos and it does give me hope that the series can only get better with time (no pun intended). I love cameos from past Riders but only if they have better things to do than just showing up and giving Sougo watches.

I hope Decade comes back soon. The show sorely misses him, even tho it's supposed to be about Zi-O.
Complete. Start Up. 3. 2. 1. Time Out. Reformation.

Yeah, Quiz's is too. I assume the Kikai Driver will be too, although I don't think we've actually seem a full version of his suit yet, just a headshot in the catalogue.

Shinobi not being a real future rider just breaks my heart...
