Oooh, you're right. I honestly don't remember him doing that much in the show or even having a name lol. Anyway, my bad.

The point still stands though, about Hibiki and MagiRanger airing concurrently.
That seems way more of a stretch to me than assuming it's because they got a Wizard actor back.
Not really. No one remembers Todoroki's bit part on Wizard, and if the reference were for him, they probably would have waited for him to be in the scene. It just seems easier for me to conceive of the writer looking up the wiki for Hibiki and going "hmm, what references can I make. Oh, it aired at the same time as MagiRanger"

I was under the impression there was some drama with Hibikis original actor, which could be a reason he wasn't in the episode (unless he appears in the next one and I was wrong).

I like the fact that Kiriya wasn't able to succeed Hibiki. He was always a dick.

I dunno, you kind of get that impression since you never see him do cameos or anything. Probably didn't have a good experience doing Hibiki and just views it as a paycheck.

I wouldn't say he failed just yet. The "What happens next week" teaser does imply that he might still become Hibiki. Sougo, after all, tells him that there is nothing he can't achieve if he works hard enough and the last line of the preview does kinda imply that someone will become Hibiki. Right now, I'm 80% sure he will be the new Hibiki.

I figured he was like Kuuga and just didn't want anything to do with the franchise anymore.

My assumption is it'll be actual Hibiki in a silent, suit-only appearance, maybe seen from behind with a stand in like Fourze was. Isn't the point of the Oni that it's about awakening your inner power? So it doesn't make sense for anyone to be Hibiki other than Hibiki himself?
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 just hope the surprise isn't "Surprise, Kiriya didn't become Hibiki because he was ALIVE THE WHOLE TIME". The more I think about it, the more I feel like they're going to drop the ball on Kiriya's reasons for being secretive. But I guess we'll see next week.

So checking Hosokawa Shigeki's wiki entry:
People called him "the old man Rider". I guess he was positive and contributed at the script meetings, but he was also on a drama Yoshitsune so because of scheduling issues he made less appearances and didn't appear as much. And then there was the staff change in the middle of the series which he commented on at his own site and Rider events.

The guy voiced Hibiki a few years ago for the games though, so he still takes a paycheck from that.

At least Heure and Woz have their regular voices back though.
I noticed that as well. And thank goodness for that! I hope whoever was handling the audio for the previous episode got smacked with a rusty trombone.
*Holds up a rusty trombone* Who's gonna get smacked?

I thought the episode was meh...mainly because of Woz's hamminess. I get that's his schtick but there's only so much ham a person can take.

Well, Todoroki was supposed to become the next Zanki. Oni's give on their names to the next generations, one of Hibiki's main themes. Of any of the Main Riders, the one I totally buy giving over the mantel to someone else is Hibiki, because that is part of their culture. And as much as Decade has its problems, that was a plot point there as well and it worked really well.

I'm not the biggest fan of Kiria, but I would be ok with it.

I would have rather they got his actor for a Den-O crossover. I know they are saving it to be the big one.

I'm pretty sure the Heisei Generations Forever movie was their Den-O tribute though. I expect Sougo to get the ride-watch by some other Den-O or time-related character during maybe the Kiva arc or something (since that series deals in split timelines and whatnot, so there would be an excuse for it).

Did he also get the W watch during the movie? I don't remember there being a W episode but we did see him use W armor one time.

"real-time" introductions are now a permanent fixture? It's an interesting idea. But it does feel weird coming more than half-way through the series.
Yeah but before he wasn't really part of the party was he? Now he's actually living with them.

The movie had him get Double and Kuuga. No sign so far of the Den-O Ride Watch.

We will get a Den-o tribute at the small screen as Sougo did not get the den-o ride watch yet.

Maybe they'll save the fellow time traveling king for last? It's fitting for an Act 2 climax. Not to mention the sheer market value of the Imagin.
