Oh Kaguya is just a Decade fanboy

Buy these toys

So nonplussed about Legend. Why not just use Zi-O or Decade instead?

Can't complain about the episode length though

The answer is right above the question.

The Legend Rider cards do get more use beyond the ones Gotchard uses by having someone else use it and his forms probably wouldn't have looked good with Zi-O there considering that's where they mostly come from.

Not to mention Legend establishes the gold motif that allows the simple rework of those past forms to just be a paint job.

Is the similarity to the Beast Driver and Grand Zi-O intentional? Grand Zi-O makes sense with the Legend Driver motif and regality, but Beast could be due to the Chemy forms often being animal based or the like.

Inoue just posted a video of him voicing Decade for Gotchard VS Legend.

Pushing the Legend Rider Chemy cards, maybe.

They are putting out a lot what with every Heisei and Reiwa series getting cards for the primary and secondary Riders (except Hibiki, Ghost, and Saber for some reason) though they all register by series/primary rider, Faiz getting an extra for the new form in the upcoming movie, Geats getting a full set for various Riders in the series with the main ones getting Chemy only and Final Form cards, and Ichigo now getting one as well.

given that the irl card for Legend himself has a hint mark that it pairs with a vehicle type chemy, but also doesn't prompt any sounds in the Gotchardriver with any of the 10 vehicle types out so far, I'm guessing this little side thing WAS to pushy the legend rider cards primarily, but I won't be surprised if Legend suddenly shows up in the show later, like how Decade just shows up in Zi-O and then sticks around.

Did Inoue literally just phone his line in? It's almost not worth it to call him into the studio for less than five seconds of dialogue

Lucky for you, Inoue records everything he does!

Is that director Tasaki? He's gotten older

There's some grunts in there. This is my first time watching someone voice grunts. I can see why voice actors in video games want better compensation and protection from straining their vocies

Gotta love that text in the corner saying "That took 5 minutes"

Apparently the Legendriver has a DecadeDriver inside

Last line "A 3 minute job is the best!"

I liked these 2 episodes mini series more than all the entire reiwa kamen riders so far... its a shame that good concepts like Shinobi and Legends are wasted on mini series and the never get a full 50 episodes series. Shinobi specially was such a good concept and idea :(

KR exists to push merchandise. But this was just such an uninspired go at it. A character I have no reason to care about, using a bunch of kitbashed forms that will never be seen again. The only thing I can really say I liked about this whole endeavor was the suit used for the mooks.

These nostalgia cash-in mini-series are so consistently lame. I don't want to accuse the staff of not trying - clearly, an effort is being made - but it's never enough of one.

At least we got a funny video out of Inoue Masahiro reacting to people going "Hey, are you gold Decade?"
