Here’s something I’d like to see Drive bring back: the main character introducing the next episode trailer via fourth-wall-breaking skits. The one where he does it while sneaking into a Neoshocker control room is amazing.
I especially love one where we can see Tsukuba eating with some guys (fifth row, third from the right.) These are in fact some of the stuntmen, who Hiroaki Murakami would eat with during lunch breaks.
Earlier this year Murakami hinted that he would gladly return were he asked to “do something where he transforms”. I hope he does get called up again; Skyrider hasn’t had an out-of-suit return since his show ended. And, he has Fujioka-level aging powers.

Saw this earlier. It’s a tiny thing that isn’t a big deal at all, but it still made me feel good.

I don’t say it enough, and it may not always seem like it (I swear I’ll get to answering all those ask box messages soon! Even the ones that are from, um, last year) but I appreciate everyone who follows my stuff. Here, elsewhere, and in the ways I don’t even know about. I’d probably keep on writing and talking about Kamen Rider even if nobody ever read it. The fact that people do though makes it that much more important to me to keep on going.

Unproduced Kamen Rider Gachapon sets, from the now-defunct Digital Grade & Ultimate Solid lines. Guess it just wasn’t Faiz’s lucky day.

Are those silhouettes Ryuki or OOO?

OOO. The previous set had featured two versions of TaToBa & LaToraTah (the silhouette is of one of the TaToBas, it’s just a placeholder image.) No clue who they would have been, though likely Birth for at least one of them since this would have come out after he debuted.

Honestly, if you’re angry about (SPOILER), that’s fine. However saying Wizard is a better show because of it seems really petty in my opinion.

(Sorry, had to edit for spoilers)

Actually I was being facetious with that part, but maybe it didn’t come across that way. I figured the idea of me dropping a Kamen Rider show over one thing was enough of a giveaway I wasn’t being entirely serious, but then again if you don’t know me very well (and I’m assuming you don’t) then maybe that’s not going to be as clear.

In all honesty though, I like Wizard and Gaim about the same. I find their strengths and weaknesses are almost totally opposite (what one does extremely well, the other struggled with, and vice-versa) so for me they’re two of the hardest shows to compare. They both made missteps, they both had amazing moments as well. When it comes to something like this, even if I wasn’t entirely happy with how one particular part played out, I still enjoyed the episode overall.

Even my favorite Kamen Rider series all have things I don’t like or things I’d change, but I try to express that humorously and self-deprecatingly, rather than just saying “this sucks and you suck for liking it” without any hint of irony or sarcasm.
