Apparently, this is how I spend Black Friday…drawing Kamen Rider while periodically turning to laugh at “The Haunting” on TV.
Thanks a lot Vangelus and Peaugh…you finally broke me
Once again I find myself watching something because the internet demanded it…and by internet, I mean three or so twitter and YouTube peeps I follow. Of course, it was easier to get me to watch it because it was something I was already into at one point in college.
That’s right, I slinking back to things of my college days…which can be very dangerous territory. I was such a tool back then I try not to dwell on college stuff too often unless its some kind of memory that includes my friends…who I miss like hell btw.
Anyways…enough suspense, it’s KAMEN RIDER. Specifically, KAMEN RIDER KABUTO.
According to these individual, the one I need to be watching is KAMEN RIDER W, but, since I had a thing for KABUTO back in the day, I kinda wanted to finish this series first before I sought out others.
So far it’s just as delightful as I remember it…however, there are some thing that now bug the crap out of me now that the “Otaku Goggles” are off.
Let’s face it, when you’re an uber nerd of something, you tend to gloss over it’s shortcomings. In college, I was *shudder* an Otaku…so I was blinded to these little things. Now? They drive me nuts.
The biggest thing is how goddamn annoying Tendou’s sister is. My god…if that girl doesn’t shut up I’m likely to reach into the computer and shove that damn backpack of hers down her throat. The wimpy Zect agent isn’t much better, although from the looks of things, he does grow up a bit in the next episode, which is good because despite his annoyances I do feel for the guy.
Another thing that just weirds me out is a question that’s been nagging at me with each passing episode…
What kind of budget do they have for these shows???
Seriously…they’ve got CGI, explosions, dropping cars from cranes, 5 million costumes, tons of working props, custom built bikes…all for a KIDS’ SHOW!!
My god…is this what Japan does with their money???
…I’d complain, but…hell, it’s damn good entertainment.
Sweet! A Kamen Rider belt (kinda) that’s actually in my price range! (About $40 for this beauty shipped on eBay)
I always thought these things were cool but could never justify spending the money. The one I REALLY want (Kabuto zecter) is like $150.
I’m considering starting off with this to see if Kamen Rider belts are something I’d seriously be interested in collecting, or if I’m just blinded by how cool they are. No need to spend $150 on something if I’m not serious about collecting it right? I mean, I’m already in deep collecting Transformers and that’s expensive enough as is.
At any rate, I really need to start watching the shows again. I got into Kabuto during college, and Decade for a breif moment a few years ago but never really gave any series my full attention. I should really get on that…
