Oh no! On a kid's show?? Won't someone think of the children

Someone crucified?!

Kajiki turned on Hoshino pretty quickly. I mean, he probably is a fraud, but man did the village turn quickly lol

Kamen Rider Dad is gone from the opening, Gotchard got his Rider slot back. As long as I'm commenting on the opening, I always love the scene where Majade is dashing to the left and it slows down in a very dramatic pose

I'm not sure if it makes sense for Renge to just leave Rinne in charge of guarding her grandma, but this conversation is nice and it's good to see Rinne with other people

What a cool shot of this wind in the path. Props to the cameraman

lol what are we supposed to have thought happened to the speedo man? "Oh Kirk, somehow you got your shirt off again". FOr a show about hand signs and arrows, they sure are missing the pointing clue

Ichinose I have no idea what you're saying

Ooh, love this shot of Rinne walking down the dark hallway. What? How did she get behind- Nevermind, someone is having some Twin Peaks fun here

That's a cute chest piece. Weird, the tails are his head? The monster designs are interesting to say the least in this series

At least Renge has the brains to be a detective

Oh, was Rinne on recharge from last time? I know they mentioned her needing to charge her ring, but is this the first time it's been plot relevant?

What's giving Gotchard that needle attack?

Renge, you're not supposed to transform into your super secret superhero identity in front of civilians!

I use the power of a flush!

lol, love the way the statue drops in, like it's an extra

Yes Ichinose, with your great acting you'll make for a great star of Romeo and Juliet

They just jammed all the mystery stories' tropes and camera angles in there for no reason. It's funny.

When they dig up the first victim, the villager on the right closest to the camera was just digging at air and not really helping.

Lol at everyone acting like the victims died and Kudou keep repeating they're just unconscious.

Now that was an impressive pose on the rock. How long did that landshark had to hold that pose for? Now I'm imagining they were failing their lines on purpose and had to keep retaking that shot just to mess with him.

They asked Minato to go all the way out there just to wipe the villagers' memory. He was wearing his alchemy uniform in public though. But it's nice that grandma still remembered Renge was mature and capable now.

This was a massive improvement over the last episode. Some similar concepts, but this one feels far more character-driven. Gotchard pulling out one of his older forms supports a theory I have that these two episodes were repurposed from some Act 1 drafts. (One of his Gotchard's first major upgrades was a super-speed form; why didn't he use that?) Overall, this feels like Renge's equivalent of that excellent Kajiki UFO two-parter; there's sort of a bittersweetness to elaborating on this character while knowing the nature of character episodes means they're unlikely to focus on her again for a while.

The malgam's primary arms look like Chinese finger traps to me; I don't think these had a religious relevance, though, and it wasn't used as a trap in-episode, so I'm not sure I'm right on this. While I'm on the topic, it also felt a little too heavily foreshadowed that the kitsune malgam would have something to do with the kitsune shrine, but there's only so much you can do to fit clues in a 20-minute action-mystery episode. With all that said, I loved the goal of the malgam itself, and the crowd's sudden mass changes of opinion was excellently satirical.

There aren't much interesting on the production blog this week.

Producer Minato Yousuke said nowadays the series tend to be serialized, where the episodes were just used to progress the story and leaving no strong impression. He wanted these two episodes to be as quirky as possible so fans would remember them down and line and talk about them.
"Remember that weird ghost Gotchard episodes from all those years ago?"


Normally, Chemys cannot be summoned without the ChemyRiser. But Renge's passion to protect her grandma made it happened.


Here's what the staff had to say about the cases.

Case 1: "The village chief who was buried in the ground Inugami Family-style"
- A scene you don't often see at 9am on Sunday mornings.
- Played by Kitagawa Tsutomu, a seasoned toku suit actor
- The Inugami Family-style V-shaped stretched out legs and the toes pointing sign were done perfectly. (Normal people's toes would cramp up...)

Case 2: “The landshark boss who was turned into a scarecrow”
- I think this was the first time for Nishina-san to play the role of a scarecrow. It's quite a visual.

Case 3: “The henchman who was reduced to only a pair of swim trunks”
- ! ! ? ?
- Onikura Ryudai-san has boxing experience. He has a muscular body!
- During the casting, the director saw his profile picture and asked if he could take his shirt off...
- This was filmed in February. It was freezing cold.
- This was a yoga post named "Wild Thing"

Case 4: “Master and student duo who were forced into a Cobra Twist”
- The devil's hand finally reached Kajiki...


The Chemys were just voiced by the existing staff.
- Berosol and the one-eyed great monster, voiced by Director Taguchi Kiyotaka who directed a lot of Ultraman
- GrandSaturn and NineTail, voiced by Aoyagi Takaya (Starshine Hoshino)
- Carery, voiced by Fukuen Misato (Hopper1)
- Mercurin, voiced by Matsumoto Reiyo (Kudou Rinne)
- Jupitta, voiced by Fujibayashi Yasunari (Kurogane Spanner)
- Kinkiravina, voiced by Abe Oto (Ichou Renge)

Original Japanese Texts
ガッチャードを見てくれている視聴者の皆様が後年になって
「なんかガッチャードに(仮面ライダーに)ヘンな回無かった?お化けが出てきて、変な退魔師みたいなのが出ててさ……」
と話してもらえるような引っ掛かりを作りたかったからです。

平成令和の仮面ライダーシリーズは連続ドラマの性質が強く、ともすれば縦軸の話を進めているだけで1話が終わってしまい、各話各話の印象が残らない。ということになりがちです。


本来ならケミーの召喚はケミーライザーがなければできません。
それを超え、まさに宝太郎のように熱い思いでケミーと共闘した蓮華。
無事に闇球体を抜け出し、おばあちゃんを守ったのでした。


第一の事件『犬〇家式で埋められちゃった村長』
日曜朝9時にはなかなか見ることがない画。
こちらの村長を演じてくださったのは、喜多川2tomさん!
犬〇家式のピンと足を張ったV字開脚はもちろん、この親指サインも見事に対応してくださいました。
(普通なら足の指攣ってしまいそう・・・)

第二の事件『案山子にされちゃった地上げ屋親分』
こちらもなかなかのビジュアル。
仁科貴さんも案山子にされる役なんて初めてだったと思いますが

第三の事件『海パン一丁にされちゃった地上げ屋子分』
!!??
鬼倉さんはボクシング経験者でもあるということで- ムキムキな肉体をお持ちで!
鬼倉さんをキャスティングさせていただいた際、そんなプロフィール写真を見た監督から、どうせなら脱がせたいねとのオーダーがあり・・・
2月の寒い中の撮影でしたが
こちらはヨガの「ワイルドシングス」というポーズを参考にしています。

第四の事件『コブラツイストさせられちゃった師弟コンビ』
ついに加治木にまで魔の手が・・・


\ここで今回登場ケミーの裏話!/
闇球体に現れたひとつ目の大妖怪、そして28話に登場したケミー「ベロソル」の声を田口監督
「グランドサターン」、「ナインテイル」の声を青柳尊哉さん
ちなみに「ケアリー」は、ホッパー1もつとめる福圓美里さんが!!

Minor cultural note, it's not dog-style, it's Inugami Family-style.

The legs in that position are featured pretty prominently on the cover

I see. Yeah, I was struggling with translating that. I edited my post, thanks.

I would be very happy if the next 16 or so episodes were eight two part hijinks episodes focusing on minor characters and having the Hades Sisters pop in to do the Team Rocket thing.

In my opinion, Kamen Rider Ghost failed as a series because they had way too many characters to give focus episodes to so it was not possible to get emotionally involved in the show. The number of characters are manageable in Gotchard so they can fit the episodes in.

Speaking of minor characters, it's a good thing that the next two episode arc will focus on the school that Houtarou and Rinne go to. If we are lucky, at the end of the second part of the arc the school will have a surprise mysterious transfer student or two to make future problems for Rinne and Houtarou.

Having Atropos and Rinne do Twin Peaks shenanigans is something they should continue with. Although I don't know if Rinne's actress could pull it off, her character being possessed by Atropos would rule. (Rinne could look in the mirror and have Atropos reflected back.)

I find it odd that the planet quintet isn't a straight. They go 1, 2, 5, 6, and 8. Also Mars should have been 4 and Jupiter should have been 5 to match the placement of the solar system.

I typically don't watch the commercials since they're no longer bundled with the episode encodes ( :oops: ), but yeah, I recognized them before even seeing your text. Poppy's actress is instantly recognizable with her hair down like that (since it's very close to Asuna's style, especially the exposed ears). Conversely, when it's not down like that, I can't pick her from a lineup (e.g. Girls Remix).

Though by facial features alone, I'd be more likely to recognize Ex-Aid's actor. 7 years later and he still looks like a goofy 20-something. :lol:

In that picture, yeah, but he's surprisingly hard to twig as Ex-Aid anymore when you see him act. He's, dare I say it, nuanced. I was 30 minutes into a 40 minute show before I was like "I think I've seen this guy somewhere, let me look him uwhaaaaaaaaaa

I didn't recognize him at all personally. So good for him for distancing himself from his black history
