So, I WAS going to follow up Wizard with Fourze…but then watching all of these Rider crossover specials (Taizen Z, Wizard Finale) got me all nostalgic for my first love…Kabuto. Which I sadly never finished because Megaupload got the axe.
But now I’ve found a new supplier for my Kabuto fix…and the rush is just as sweet as it always was.
I’m transfixed. I can’t look away from the screen. It’s the complete opposite of what I felt while watching Wizard.
Also, I forgot how much of a total dick Tendou was…and I love him with all my heart for it.
It’s such a more interesting show than Wizard. The story is better, the characters are more interesting, the theme is frigging killer, and then of course there are the riders. I don’t think there’s a rider in this show I don’t like on some level. Of course, Daisuke is by and large my favorite…although I just finished episode 33 which brings back Yaguruma as Hopper…and oh my god I damn near wet my pants in joy.
The Rider Lockseed for Ankh. Its transformation phrase is “Happy Birthday!” with attacks all based on popsicles.
OMG…this is amazing
Watching the WIZARD crossover special only reminds me how many Kamen Rider series I haven’t seen yet…
This guy…this guy right here…
Also, Acorn and Pinecone are this series’ Beast.
I’m so close to finishing WIZARD, a part of me just wants to marathon it today so I can start dividing my viewing between FOURZE and GOKAIGER.
The last episode I watched was the big Wiseman plot twist, which I’m sad to say suffers from the “Hunt For Red October Chef Shot.” For those who don’t get my meaning…they tipped their hand just beyond the point of being subtle and the audience clearly knows that something important is being hinted at.
I can remember what episode exactly is that tipping point. At the time it seemed weird enough to the point where I guessed that this was coming.
I’m finding myself more and more wanting to see each and every Rider and Sentai series. As I’m having a lot of fun with the ones I’m watching. Some I’m eager to see more than others. So perhaps it’s prudent to make a game plan…
Up Next- Alternating Gokaiger/Fourze episodes
Followed by- Finishing Kabuto (finally…I’ve been stuck in the 30’s ever since Megaupload got canned) and alternating Go-Busters episodes (I’m curious)
Then- Alternating Decade/??? Sentai series. I’m undecided. I’ve heard good things about Goseiger but I’m not a fan of the theme. So maybe Boukenger? I dunno…I’m open to suggestions.
After that, here’s the shortlist of series that take precidence over the others…
-Characters Discuss ongoing storyline
-Characters Meet Gate for current two-episode arc
-Phantom flees battle
-Characters provide protective detail to Gate, meanwhile investigating their source of hope
-Source of hope is found
-Unexpected plot development, leading into cliffhanger
-Resolution of cliffhanger
-Phantom flees again
-Medusa/Gremlin/Pheonix confront Phantom’s failure
-Characters discuss situation
-Victory is snatched from someone’s grasp
-Special Finish (Dragon Ring/Dragon Timer/Infinity/Trip to the Underworld)
-Overarching story development
…oh, no matter what the episode, it doesn’t have nearly enough Beast for my liking…yes, even the Beast-centric episodes need more Beast in it.
Beast is best wizard.
Just finished watching SUPER HERO JAPAN OH MY GOD IS THAT ALMOST EVERY LAST FRIGGING SUPER SENTAI AND KAMEN RIDER CHARACTER EVER: THE MOVIE (aka Super Hero Taizen Z.)
Seriously, this movie was insane. I’m impressed with how many they were able to get in there, but it did get silly at one point where people just showed up with random heroes.
"Oh yeah, we met Kamen Rider OOO on the way here, he needed a ride so I guess he’s going to help us out with this."
But I can’t really complain because I loved the sheer absurdity of it all.
So…is there a reason no one subs the movies? (I.E. GABURINCHO THE MUSIC, SUPER HERO TAISEN Z, KAMEN RIDER WIZARD MOVIE)
I laugh at this every time I see it…
Thinking more on my idea for Lock Seen kitchen decor. I’m thinking a long lacquered Bistro board would be a cool mounting format.
But also wondering…the candy toy version of the locks. I’m assuming they will not have electronics? Because that might be the more economical way to do this. Although you sacrifice the added feature of lights and sounds.
