is Shu Watanabe let out by yakuza yet?
Imho I like it when the ticking sounds only starts when the top button of ziku driver is pressed after a ridewatch is inserted like in episode 21
Every now and then I like catching the little trigger they use to set off explosions on suits. Leaning on more and more CG is inevitable but I always appreciate practical effects.
>>17701688The explosion part. It's kind of hard to see where it comes from on the picture before, but it's cool they can do that.
Kaito's brother is so fucking creepy. Whats up with that smile?
>>17701692I don't imagine a lot of people remember that time people found his youtube stuffhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Hi35zn45zg
On ep 3 right now, what's with the edgy bat guy? Is he still stuck in chuunibyou phase?
>>17701722Always. Ren is good. Shinji is good. Ryuki is good.
>>17701661The better question is: have the Yakuza returned the Super-1 belt yet.
>>17701735He hasn't returned ever since, so...
How fast is Kamen Rider Blade Mach vs Kamen Rider Faiz Accel vs Kamen Rider Kabuto Clock up

Anyone have the link for the P.A.R.T.Y Universe live with Zi-O, Gaim, and Den-O?The links on the previous thread are dead.

Finally got to see Saraba the Final Countdown, aka the last Den-O movie/story to feature Ryotaro Nogami. I'm going to miss him, and since this was the intended stopping point for Den-O, I've enjoyed this series thus far.I also think that Shiro should have been used as the main series villain instead of Kai. The Ghost Imajin was more interesting than the Death Imajin, and that motherfucking Ghost Train could have been a cool vehicle to combat Den-O. Hell, even Shiro's motive, of wanting to bring back his dead lover, could have been the perfect parallel and juxtaposition to Yuuto, who wanted to protect the future and his yet-to-be-born daughter That said, Den-O was also more of an episodic comedy toku than a straight drama, so, I loved it. I think Drive did it better but, then again, time-travel was not as integral to Drive as it was to Den-O. Next time, I might have to watch both Den-O and Drive together
>>17701756Blade mach is the fastest so its number 1.Accel is equal to Kabuto clock up.
>>17701746I want that Quiz custom figure. Please tell me where I could get one at.
>>17701778Kamen Rider Lupin alpha version 0.01
>>177017561. First this is the wrong thread to ask Kamen Rider series specific Questions. 90% of the people here haven't seen Blade or Faiz. At most they have only seen handful of the recent series. Or they might have seen 1 older Heisei show, but not all 3. You're better off going to Rider specific forums for discussion where actual experts are available for discussing topics. This thread is mostly for casuals.>>17701887>Accel is equal to Kabuto clock up.For only 10 seconds. And in the Decade cross-over, Kabuto's clock up was even better than other clock up users. I would still choose Kabuto over Faiz Accel.
What is with this show and bath scenes? Also getting farther into the show Nago is a huge dork most of the time, he was kind of annoying at first with how rigid he was.
>>17701887From where are you even pulling that? Blade Mach was a generic speed effect, while Clock Up is so fast the world slow downs around the user and Accel is so fast the user can appear to be in multiple places at once (the movie Rider Kick). Blade never showed anything comparable.
>>17701934if we're going by thatthen GataKiriBa is the world's fastest rider
>>17701725General consensus is that Shinji is an idiot.
>>17701931It’s some Japanese thing.
>>17701940Shinji is the hero we need
>>17701934it not generic. also mach more versatile. can be combined other ability. clock up can not.
>>17701931It's a japanese and late 90s-00s thing. You see it alot in shows at the time.
>>17701953lol no. japan just loves their suggestive homo love scenes. makes female viewers go wild
>>17701939Accel doesn't actually multiply Faiz though, he just moves fast enough he can uses multiple points and Rider Kicks seemingly at once.>>17701949>it not generic. It's generic because it's just a minor fast forward effect like Diend's speed rather than having shown anything truly impressive speed-wise.
I both love and hate the pick and mix thing W, OOO and Build got going onit's Gaoranger all over again, we're never going to see everything and it's all to sell toys
Which riders had the most overpowered form pre-movie / final episode nerfs?At the moment off the top of my head:Hyper Kabuto (Can move so fast he goes back in time to redo everything, even retcons don't prevent Tendou from simply just willing the Hyper Zector back into his possession)Ex-AID Muteki: (Invulnerable to everything apart from retconning)Gaim (Became God)Grand Zi-O (Can rewind time, potentially destroy space/time, summon any of the other riders to fight alongside him and utilize any of their abilities in theory, if only the writers let him)Decade Complete (Everything and All of the above if he really wanted to except writers also won't let him)Out of all of them ignoring the two anniversary riders I still feel like Hyper Kabuto is the most overpowered and broken of them all, of course that is if we ignore the final battle where the form is inexplicably nerfed.
>>17701972I guess Cronus deserves to be on the list but he has the weakness of "Susceptible to anyone with a higher bullshit factor than him".
>>17701909>And in the Decade cross-over, Kabuto's clock up was even better than other clock up users.You mean the AR Kabuto that became one with the "Speed Force"?
>>17701934>Blade Mach was a generic speed effect, while Clock Up is so fast the world slow downs around the userExcept for the times they showed it from the outside perspective and it was a "generic speed effect".
>>17701989Clock Up from an outside view is at least a blur, sometimes even basically invisible. Blade's speed is just a fast forward. Like I pointed out above, it's closer Diend's speed power than anything else, and Clock Up trashed Diend's speed.
>>17701972>>Hyper Kabuto (Can move so fast he goes back in time to redo everything, even retcons don't prevent Tendou from simply just willing the Hyper Zector back into his possession)this was part of my problem with Kabuto and why I couldn't get into it. He's too powerful. Riders are, for the most part, pretty equal in terms of power. You put any two riders together and, ignoring experience and bullshit stats, they'd be a pretty even fight. Not Kabuto. Kabuto has one of the strongest abilities period and is probably one of the strongest riders in his base form, he'[d be able to compete with most final forms just because of how obscenely fast he is. That could work in a superman way if Tendo had to learn how to control it, but he doesn't. Tendo is perfect, and without any struggle I just couldn't care about him. Kagami's out right pathetic and I couldn't care less about ZECT. Knowing they brought time travel into it later just soured me further.
>someone edited pages on the wikia to put the kabuto hbv as canon lol, the one where they drew eyes onto the zectors and gave them voices?
is Suda Masaki the most successful kamen rider actor ever?
>>17702139No. Joe Odagiri and Takeuchi Ryoma are bigger.
why to people dislike agito I am on ep 30 and I see no problems so far
>>17702142They have bad taste. Agito is one of the best.
>>17702140but the awards, suda is practically drowning in them
>>17702155Odagiri's received international acclaim in multiple films across the globe, and not only does Ryoma drown in just as many, he's the one who's considered "Japan's National Boyfriend."
Where does the description of Decade telling American jokes even come from. Wtf are American jokes even.

>>17701965>it's all to sell toysYes, everything in this show is selling toys.>>17702158Suda also has a successful music career in Japan. Like he has one the highest selling albums this year.
>>17701889It's not a custom, it's part of the SODO line of candy toys that started with Ex-Aid. If you want Quiz, you'd be looking for the Ride Plus 1 set, which is the three future Riders and Decade. Check Buyee or other auction sites.
>>17701756They're all exactly the same speed. Every time there's a crossover where all the speedsters fight, they're all exactly the same speed. The only exception there's ever been is when Caucasus used Hyper Clock Up and it was like he was in Clock Up to people already in Clock Up. Kabuto's Hyper Clock Up wasn't shown to work like that, though, he used it to time travel instead.
>>17702463Blade's Mach isn't as fast as the others.
>>17702463>Kabuto's Hyper Clock Up wasn't shown to work like that, though, he used it to time travel instead.He only used to time travel thrice (twice in the movie, once in the tv series) all other times it was used in the tv show it worked like that. See Dark Kabuto vs Hyper Kabuto for example.We also got standard Clock Up beating Diend's speed in Decade, although I think that one and Geiz Shippu > Woz Shinobi are the only times we got a crossover showing a speed ability as superior to another. Every other time they were just matched (Clock Up vs Accel in Decade and GP, Accel vs Mach's speed finisher in GP, Geiz Shippu and Woz Shinobi facing Clock Up worms and Riders).
>>17702334https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUQ_Icdak4cLook at what form got summoned bu Decade's ultimate final form. Get fucked.
>>17702554That's Decade's movie exclusive Strongest Complete form though, so it summoned movie exclusive stuff that existed at that point (Rising UItimate, Super Climax), the standard Complete form summons Den-O Liner.
>>17702292>>17702334>>17702554Liner is Ryotaro’s final form. Climax is the final form for the Taros.
>>17702554The Over Quartzer movie has the final form line-up include Liner Form, not Super Climax.https://youtu.be/iXXQyLIONho?t=29Get fucked.
>>17702554You must be one of those seamonkeys from the wiki.
>>17702554lol, the other anon is right, that's 最強コンプリートフォーム strongest complete form, as such, he summons "strongest forms" not "final forms".
>tfw Neo-Complete Decade is just Complete with the final form card for W through Zi-O
>>17702595That was meant to be >yfw, but whatever.
>It became MasterChef, and there was a scene where they cooked while Full Force was playing in the background.I don't know what this show is about anymore.
wtf bros I didn't know Cosmic Mind was such a good song
>>17702565I just notice that Drive is shown twice when all the rider's are starting to use their final attacks
So this is either A:. Saying Zi-O's consistent continuity errors not excused by the time changes in it's plot are because it's an AR world separate from the long-standing main timeline.Or B, it's re-asserting the multiverse retcons Decade's series was literally made to undo.As a reminder, Showa series? Always one timeline. The separate rider world's thing began as Shirakura's excuse beginning with Agito to explain why Agito had continuity errors with the Kuuga content it built itself on. Toei hated it. Decade ended the separate worlds stuff. W through Ex-Aid thus always, near-consistently operated as one long consistent world, with the only screwups with that being content that involved the same group of idiots which were quickly declared noncanon. Even Build ended by it merging itself into the main timeline.And that's not me, Build's producer is the one that said and confirmed that happened. So once again, As I said a year ago, Zi-O as a series is one that spits on the Goodwill the franchise spent the last decade building.It's almost as if the show was predictable or something from the precedented actions of it's staff and their common nonsense that they keep redoing.I keep saying that, and it keeps being proven true.
Decade V-Cinema when?
>>17702213That's the illusion of things happening. It's more episodic than people think (which isn't a bad thing), and the plot doesn't actually start pushing forward until Another Agito pops in to kick their rears into gear. But you could have Souichi learn everything about the Yacht and then have him immediately forget everything cause we've gotta stretch this for a whole year. You can argue the audience is supposed to figure things out while the characters are in the dark only to barely learn anything until the final arc.
>>17702620>beginning with Agito to explain why Agito had continuity errors with the Kuuga content it built itself on."Built itself on" is a pretty big exaggeration.
>>17702620>Or B, it's re-asserting the multiverse retcons Decade's series was literally made to undo.It actually never did that. All worlds are separated again at the end of Movie Wars 2010. Still, Decade never really into the original worlds so it could go either way, but all crossovers afterwards seemed to treat them all as part of the same world, yes.>As I said a year ago, Zi-O as a series is one that spits on the Goodwill the franchise spent the last decade building.Not quite. the worlds were already fusing sometime before the start of Zi-O, not just when Sogo gets the Watches, since he meets many Riders before the Watches are made, so it doesn't directly contradict the previous crossovers either. This IS just Shirakura once again imposing his view of all Rider series being separate, something he talk about on twitter, and shows his disregard for what people did with the franchise in the last 10 years.
So the Progrise Keys that the infected Humagear use are based on prehistoric/extinct animals, right?
>>17702620>>17702641Funny thing is that this reveal actually explains the Cross-Z Watch in Build's finale now, since the Watches are what unite the worlds.
>>17701682The Another Zi-O forms have been decidedly stronger than the regular Zi-O they are based off of. Would this thing be god mode?
>>17702620>the same group of idiots which were quickly declared noncanon.I liked Foundation X when they were first introduced. And I liked the idea that they'd go on to be a new Shocker, even if for only a few seasons. I liked them as a villain group in W and was kind of expecting minimal involvement in future series while not completely overtaking the plot (Maybe they were funding Maki or had shares in CakeBoss Company. Maybe they'd make an artificial Greeed that'd be around for a few episodes). But I guess producers didn't want to mess with the stories too much. I just wish there was a satisfying conclusion to them at least instead of a group that's shoehorned in to be behind evil plots over and over and over.
>>17701778Tsundere homo klepto.
>>17702647But that's a praying mantis and a bat
>>17702463Geiz Revive seems to be faster than regular Clock Up, since Zi-O II's precognition can't read/react to it, but it can read/react to Clock Up.
>>17702660Foundation X had so much potential and it hurts.
>>17702664Then I'll make them extinct
>>17702620>Even Build ended by it merging itself into the main timeline.Nothing explicitly said that though. All they said was that Build's world merged with a parallel universe close to their own where Evolt doesn't show up. Then New World establishes that Kamen Riders don't exist.
>>17702664>batif you have no idea, then don't say shit, anon.
>>17702664Yes, an extinct mantis and bat species.
>>17702672Are those not red bat wings on the right?
>>17702676It's a fucking lizard, nigger.
>>17702676red one is a lizard, dude.....
>>17702676Pretty sure that it’s supposed to be a Frilled Lizard.
What's the names of the MaGear progrise keys then?
>>17702686it's literally in the above pic, anon.
>>17702620Half the post-Decade shows give absolutely no fucks about Toei's forced attempts at continuity and actually make less sense when you try to view them as all being part of the same world, especially fucking Build with its shit writing
>>17701778Hollow. No matter how much they use him he never evolves beyond basic character quirks. And that time he got butthurt about Decade vs. Marvelous was one of the worst showings ever.
>>17702689alright /krg/!for the fucking 999999999999999999999999999th time!NOTEVERYONEUNDERSTANDSTHATFUCKINGALIENWEIRDLANGUAGEAKAJAPANESE.got it? RIGHT!
>>17702692here you go, anon.
>>17702660> But I guess producers didn't want to mess with the stories too much. They would have been the villain of every crossover movie. The plots of those movies are usually fucked beyond believe anyway, so no harm done.
>>17702670>Nothing explicitly said that though.It was mentioned by Ohmori in an interview.Now that I read back his quote, it seems like the parallel world stuff for Zi-O was planned from the start>At the end, we put it (Build) back in the world of Ex-Aid and the others, but we were shocked when we learned that Zi-O would deal with parallel worlds again! (laughs)>Then New World establishes that Kamen Riders don't exist.If we go by Heisei Generations Forever, when Sento talks about "Rider System" or even "Kamen Rider" he's generally talking about the stuff from his own world specifically. For example, he gives a speech in Forever about how the Riders shouldn't exist after the worlds were fused, but Banjo is still there due to being an idiot, which only makes sense even in the context of the movie if he is only referencing the Riders of his own world (this is after meeting Zi-O and learning about the other Riders in the movie itself).
>>17702692just learn it then lol
>>17702692But at a certain point you should be trying to learn. Especially if you've been watching for years.
>>17702692>waaaaah I don't have the patience to learn a few letters!
>>17702647Those don't seem like MotW. They seem more like elite class mooks.
>>17702660>>17702668Thankfully the person who dropped the ball on Foundation X got demoted for her stupidity (on a bunch of other projects).
>>17702716They're monster of the week. Probably went with that design in order to reuse parts for future monsters. They'll basically only need new heads and then the gimmick part, like weapons.
>>17702668>We never got fusion monsters using gimmicks from different seasons I mean, we got Nebula Bugster and that one unrelated Roidmude who uses a Gaia Memory, but they could have done so much more with that.
>>17702716>>17702720So they’re like pseudo rider designs.
Who is the laziest Rider?
>>17702620>pretending like continuity mattersLol.
>>17702142Agito is fuckin awesome
>>17702718Who though? Because hardly anyone, no matter how badly they fuck up the plot, gets kicked off this series. I've never heard of anyone's head rolling for Hibiki's second half and that had Inoue and Shirakura in the gears. I'd certainly love to know who actually took the brunt of that fiasco.
>>17702813He's presumably talking about Takebe, who has been reduced to a secondary producer, although that was more due to her failures with Sentai (which is kind of weird since she produced both OOO and Gaim, which were very successful for Rider (aside from the Gaim summer movie, which bombed), then was kicked to the side due to Go-Busters and Ninninger failing, rather than just returning to Rider as a main producer again. She was a secondary producer for Amazons and Zi-O).
>>17702813>I've never heard of anyone's head rolling for Hibiki's second half and that had Inoue and Shirakura in the gears.Hibiki's second half actually had higher ratings than the first half, and fixed the production costs issue of the first half too. There's no reason they'd be punished for it, even if fans disliked it. Takatera, Hibiki's original producer, was the one punished and removed from the franchise in the first place for going over budget and the show doing badly on top of that in both ratings (although they were slowly climbing, they were still much lower than Kuuga->Faiz) and toy sales.
>>17702626I feel like the v3 team is the main focus for most of the 1 half and each off them get develop meantSouichi losing his memories again makes sense for his personality and not wanting to loss his happiness
>>17702554They broke the Super Climax wings doing stunt work for the movies. Toei doesn't want to pay to fix it. So they are forced to use Liner form from now on. So yes you are correct that Super Climax is the strongest and final form of Den O. However, the suit is broken in real life, so we are stuck with the weaker Liner form. We just have to pretend its the final form for now.
>>17702667That's just Sougo getting good and learning to mask his movements to trick an opponent with super-speed who could otherwise react to his changes in actions.
>>17702667>Geiz Revive seems to be faster than regular Clock Up, since Zi-O II's precognition can't read/react to itZi-O II did react though, it's just that Geiz Revive instantly changed to Gouretsu form and tanked Zi-O II's counter.
>>17702872I haven't heard anyone really talk yet about how young Alpina was actually totally cool with Swartz's plan to commit Evolt times twenty, and only turned against him when he betrayed her.
>>17702142Who the fuck dislikes Agito?
>>17702903The Overlord of Darkness.
I kinda like how, up till now anyway, the show hasn't really been focused on the imagins and it's more a character story about Nogami and his relationship with Sakurai (and Yuuto by extension.)
Which season got the shaft hardest with Zi-O? Besides Kuuga obviously.Feels like off the top of my head the top contenders are Kiva and Fourze. Pretty sure everyone else got at least a secondary rider back if not the main one (Hibiki is probably #3 on the list)
>>17702957>Kiva and Fourze.They're not the ones that got some literal who from a movie as the cameo.
>>17702957W used to be up there on the list until we got Eternal.
Is there a world with a worst fate than Paradise Lost's?
He bought P Bandai? Delay it
>>17702957>Kiva How? Kiva’s tribute perfectly represents a season written by Inoue. I’d say Faiz got fucked over the most. The fact that they rectonned Takumi and Kusaka into being friends is retarded.
>>17702872does this guy do porn
>>17702970Fun fact: he’s considered as the Steven Seagal of Japan
For what Ghost meant as a series I can say that was a fine ending, the real question is Takeru and Akari never become a couple? really sad if true.Also The Great Eye a total cutie
>>17702982>that green screendamn
>>17702967The retcon only makes sense if .Mari was the thing retconned out.
>>17702982>Takeru and Akari never become a couple?Nope. Takeru ends up fucking Makoto's sister. Not Kanon.
>>17703000Fucking unbelievable, checked btw
>The chad Takeru ends up impregnating a girl after his season while the virgin cuck Emu just ends up with some annoying faggot. Based
>>17703015>Takeru was so repulsively bland that none of the girls from the actual show wanted to fuck him so they needed to make up a girl in the V-Cinema who was so empty in personality and soul that she couldn't resist the sentient bag of flour
>>17702967It's not a retcon. Time was rewritten.
>>17703028A retcon called rewritten time is still a retcon
>>17703028I bet you think Loki’s scepter being the Mind Stone isn’t a retcon either.
>>17703021>Big Burning Friendship Dick Takeru making people seethe with his sole existenceHow does he do it my heroic bros?
>>17702692With a little effort, you can be a little less pathetic
>>17703028I bet you think Endgame’s 2014 Thanos not looking like GOTG’s 2014 Thanos isn’t a retcon either.
if you could adapt for an English audience a kamen rider with one would you pick
>>17703062Knight, Orga, Kiva, Eternal are capeshit
>>17703091Ghost - cool designs, multiple forms, high merchandising opportunities.
>>17703091I think you should adapt English as your SL first anon
>>17703062>W Forever: Batman Forever>Begins Night: Batman Begins>W Returns: Batman Returns>W & OOO: Batman & Robin>OOO: Same colors as Robin>Birth: Based on Iron Man>Build: Based on Spider-Man
>>17703062endgame is like heigen forever but better
>>17703062Knight is literally modern Batman though. And there’s plenty of capeshit elements that’s referenced by Rider.
>>17703021I’m sorry anon but I can’t read seethe.
>>17703143Believe me, every time normalfags West-side "adapt" shit, I'm seething. Hypocritical sacks of shit

Will we get a 10Y special for decade?
>>17702957Hibiki's tribute was easily in the good tribute episodes. You are crazy, if you think it was bad.Fourze got shafted the hardest, maybe W if Eternal wasn't brought back. Kuuga got it worst though. Fourze's armor got used a bunch.
>>17703168YesIt's called Zi-O
>>17703091Ex-Aid but I'd set it in the early to mid 90's. Fresh Prince meets ER meets Kamen Rider meets vidya.
>>17703168What a shitty special
how come zero one looks like a plain OC but people still dig it
>>17703191Simplicity is good I guess? I like my rider design simple and not too busy, just like build or W
>>17703191Desperation from a season of bad to average suits in Zi-O?
>>17703191Because Zi-O trended towards bulky suits with a lot going on and Zero-One is simple and sleek probably.
>>17703216Zi-O isn't a great show but I really like the suits that aren't using other rider's powers. Regular Woz and Zi-O II look fantastic.
>>17703191He looks better than any phase 2 riders
>>17703191He really does look like a fucking Deviantart OC design. Like, I still like it well enough. But it comes across with a strange sort of fan made vibe.
>>17703191because "i clapped when they referenced ichigo"
>>17703220>PHASE 2 BAD, REIWA GOODMerciful Christ, it's begun...
>>17703191He looks like a competent local hero design. Like, they had to make some design choices which would make the suit cheaper to create, and easier to move in, but it still turned out decent.
I just got to the second agito opening and I got to ask what happening
>>17703236It's not as good of a song as the first OP, I agree.
>>17703236lol, it's like the movie teaser trailer at the end of decade. if you think those things will actually happen....
>>17703237What armor does Geiz have on his chest? The stun version? It looks so flat/dull.
>>17703244ok so none of that happenes then what was the point of showing it is there a deeper meaning
>>17703229Even if Zero-One is shit these mouth breathers will still say it is the best show since Kuuga, just because it's flashy. Its like jangling keys in front of a retarded kid lol
>>17703248where's rogue's symbol?
>>17703191Bulky designs can look great, but so can sleek and simple ones. It's nice to have variety.
>>17702957Kiva easily had one of the most accurate tribute arcs. It was horrible, but it was fucking great. Fourze had a weak arc, but Fourze Armor got the most use of any of the armors. W had basically nothing for most of the show, but then we got Eternal and that was pretty great. It's probably still W overall, but honestly, I'm satisfied with the tributes as a whole. They were a damn sight better than Decade's, that's for sure, arguably even better than Gokaiger's because more than one past Rider got to actually fight again.
>>17703267>honestly, I'm satisfied with the tributes as a wholeAnyone who isn't is an entitled manchild. There was a LOT of love and effort put into this season, whether you like it or not.
>>17703191I think Bandai and PLEX felt incredibly pressured to make the first Reiwa rider look as safe as possible. No gimmicks, no bulk. Just a simple modern Ichigo homage.Come next series we're going to get some weird shit for sure.
Special where another riders have to defend the city with mannerisms of their counterpart but still have dumb kaijin minds when?
>>17703231I feel like Kuuga does not represent all of Heisei very well. Heisei Phase very different from phrase 1.Like there should be a third picture between Kuuga and Zero One that represents Heisei Phase 2. Perhaps Decade would be best.
>>17703275>No gimmicksYou're so desensitized after all the crazy shit that you're now blind to blatant gimmickry.
>>17703252prob just to look cool, or maybe it is symbolic or something
>>17703281Moron, the picture is about the first Rider of actual eras in Japan, not made up distinctions for toyline products.
>>17703290>the first Rider of actual eras in Japan, not made up distinctions for toyline productsThen it shouldn't be Kuuga.
>>17703281Decade would probably be best, yeah. He's the last titular Heisei Rider whose belt is clearly a Typhoon homage. Maybe you could argue Drive in that respect, but I wouldn't.
Kuuga was the first rider of the Heisei era, retard
>>17703297You are 100% correct, good luck changing it now. Convince them to put Black RX instead of Kuuga, rather than trying to add another one between Kuuga and Zero-One.
>>17703282Any gimmick he has is not apparent from his base suit alone. He's safe as fuck. Just a yellow karate bugman.
>>17703288there a gimmick but it seems to be more grounded like kuga were each form just gives the rider a certain ability unlike exaid were the forms are over the top and is a power buster making all past forms useless.O course we don't know until we see it
>>17703299Black RX, or maybe Shin if you want to say "First Rider Fully In Heisei".
>>17703308Meant to click >>17703301
>>17703297Not him, but "Heisei Rider" is a classification used by toei. So Kuuga, is the first of that classification.
Showa Rider = KR series created while Shotaro Ishinomori had any form of influence on themHeisei Rider = KR series created after the death of Shotaro IshinomoriReiwa = KR series created during the Reiwa eraIt's not that hard.
>>17703281Agreed. Heisei was a very long period. Phase 2 is very visually different from Phase 1. Decade should be the symbol for Phase 2 Heisei>>17703290Kuuga isn't the first for Heisei era you retard. Learn your history
Is it true that Drive is based on The Flash?
>>17703317The post he's responding to is specifically rejecting self defined terms for the actual accepted ones.
>>17703191Because simple is best you tard. Did you think the retards that were slobbering all over Zi-O's travesties were always the majority
>>17703331>involved with the police>goes fast>red>evil yellow doppelganger>superheroit checks out
>>17703305>>1770330701 is loaded with gimmicks. Armor that opens up to attach additional parts, including a whole fucking giant robot suit. A Driver that can scan up to six more keys to power up the finisher to bigger and bigger levels. A super form that's definitely going to obsolete all of those basic armors by the end of Q1, and then a super duper form that involves enhancing one of the keys with a part from another key. All of that in Q1, before we get to shit like the belt extension that's coming sometime in Q2 or Q3.
>>17703328I don't see why people care kuga was different due to the gap between shows kamen rider has change organically since kuga 01 is going to feel like build if any thing
Why do people keep picking Decade to represent phase 2 when he is still a phase 1 Rider? W would represent phase 2.
I wonder if the show after Zero-One will follow Showa and Heisei and have a rider similar in appearance to Zero-One. I kind of doubt it the way rider currently is but maybe
>>17703336I had no idea anon sorry can you post pictures I want to see how that would look
>>17703322Couldn't even be arsed to do the little bit of research to make sure the theory even panned out, huh...>>17703332Yeah, thought it was weird that he even specifically worded it that way.>>17703331Bruh, how new are you? Something like that can't be proven, one way or the other. All any of us can do is either buy into the theory or not.
>>17703336>A Driver that can scan up to six more keys to power up the finisheroh you're pushing this as fact now. interesting.
>>17703345Are you retarded? It's what the toy can do. You scan keys and the finisher gets bigger.
>>17703350>Are you retarded.No, the toy scans any key 6x, nothing so far supports your fanfiction that you'll need "6 more keys", dumbass, he was right.
>>17703339dunno about others but he is smack dab in the middle of Heisei. Hence the name Decade.>>17703290>implying eras define riders and not toy companies.>what is black rxlol
>>17703350leaked scans and the manual show it done with just one extra key. where's your source that you'll need 6 keys for a "super duper" finisher?
>>17703358>toy companies.>PluralI wasn't aware this was even an issue outside of Kamen Rider. Everyone else seems to acknowledge the actual calendar.
>>17703336You're a fucking idiot. The point is that is immediate outward design is safe as fuck. His eyes are the traditional Ichigo compound eyes, his antennas are large and prominent, and he has a grasshopper motif. That's safe as fuck after The rider that is a giant Rolex watch with words for eyes, The one before that is a haphazard mix of red-and-blue with illustrations for eyes, and fucking Ex-Aid.
>>17703231>>17703234this is basically toy companies admitting that they don't mind toyetic designs for regular mid season rider shows but don't want them as symbols for eras. thats why they mega simplified Zero Ones design and made it sleek. But the next Season will be back to toyetic designs.You will never see Kamen Rider Drive or Kamen Rider Build or Gaim be the symbol for Kamen Rider.
................Why is Black RX considered Showa? Black RX, Kamen Rider J, ZO, and Shin were all Heisei Rider era shows. Black RX was first Heisei. I was banging my head when I watched Showa vs Heisei.
>>17703369>>17703380Japan would be embarassed if Ex-Aid and Muteki was the symbol for Heisei or Reiwa.
>>17703384Because the Heisei Rider era does not literally coincide with Heisei era. It's specifically post-revival shows, starting with Kuuga
>>17703384It isn't, why do you think it was in Over Quartzers with all the other non-classifieds?
>>17703384Bandai wanted a clear distinction drawn in the line when the TV series finally came back. For some reason they decided to use a term that already had an existing association. Ultraman just had this happen too, but they group TV series released after the hiatus as "New Generation" rather than stretching the definition of an existing term.
>>17703384Because it's not about real life calendar eras. Its about what Toei and the Toy company sponsors say it is. And they say everything pre-Kuuga is considered "showa" and everything Kuuga to Zi-O is considered "heisei". Even though it doesn't make any freaking sense.
>>17703397Cut it out w/ all this "toy company" shit, they own a part of Toei, it's redundant because they literally are toei.
Does anyone think then names Zi-O and Zero One are too visually similar when spelled out? They should have had a different unique name for Reiwa first rider
>>17703401I think it's on purpose, but it does seem like it could cause a Wii, Wii-U problem.
>>17703384merchandising and toy companies dont want to change it. they invested too much into the lie.
>>17703401ジオウ and ゼロワン look different enough to the japanese.
>>17703401Does anyone think then names ZO and Zi-O are too visually similar when spelled out? They should have had a different unique name for Heisei last rider.
>>17703406Wow, trolling two anons at once.... let's see what happens....
>>17703401Very euro-centric of you, retard-kun
>>17703405Also they pronounce them as Geo and Zerowan.
>>17703406would be a bigger problem if ZO weren't so irrelevant, and besides these are 2 riders one right after the othernot like we're able to do anything about it but it makes sense as a complaint coming from english speakers, don't you think?
>>17703407this is an english language image board
>>17703412Kamen Rider Buoy Torey!!
>>17703406they are 25 years apart anon
>>17703415>get a load of this guy...ishygddt
>>17703415>english language image board>on a chinese cartoon jpg repository
A friend is attending Japan World Heroes this weekend and I want to try to get a picture of Kenzaki signed by his actor. Anybody have a good hi-res picture of him I can get printed in 8x10, preferably doing his henshin pose or holding his Rouze card?
>>17703429did'nt he do gay porn if so you should print out a pic and make him sing on his dick also I hope some one takes a picture of spd red and dekared together
>>17703402>ジオウ>ゼロワン>it does seem like it could cause a Wii, Wii-U problem.What is it with Westerners and just pretending they're the center of the universe all the time.
>>17703457I don't know is does espanchan have a toku board
when are we getting real doctor riders, no, exaid doesn't count, that's vidya rideror maybe cyber riders
>>17703460could you repeat that
>>17703460Did you get a fucking stroke?
>>17703462Another Agito is a surgeon.
>>17703470meant more in terms of themeing
>>17703473birth is gatcha rider
>>17703467>>17703467my bad I got to go to sleep is there a Spanish image board which discusses /m/
>>17703472...you don't think doctors is a theme for ex-aid, hmm.....
>>17703478they're transformation toy is literally a toy cartridge, so I don't know what to tell you
>>17703415I don't see how that plays any part in the writing of the title. The show is written first and foremost for the domestic Japanese audience and follows Japanese text and phonetic patterns, regardless of how much you normalfags want to hound Shirakura on twitter about how "big" the Western audience is.
>>17703482I mean, when you talk about exaid, you wouldn't call it the doctor riders, you say the vidya riders
>>17703478Ex-Aid's main motif is video games. Doctors is the show motif just like how Drive is a cop.
>>17703475oh, you're talking about a rider form based on a doctor.............................. ............................................................
>>17703462you can even mix those two show togetherhave a cyber crime unit who transform into doctor themed riders that fight off viruses
>>17703486actually, his main motif is EXtreme sports, video games is a general motif for all of them.
>>17703380What's toyetic about RabbitTank?
>>17703499the belt has plastic toys that you shake
OOO rewatch.I have already seen the movies, and I know they are non-canon. Do I save all the movies for the end, skip them completely, or should I watch them on their release dates with the show? Do episodes 27 and 28 have anything to do with the show, or were they just celebration episodes? If they are just celebration, I will probably do the same with them as the movies.
>>17703501How is that any more or less "toyetic" than what Zero-One has with it's driver
>>17703501Well, yeah sure then that applies to 01 who has gimmicky belt. Otherwise it's a pretty simple Rider design.
>>17703492Ex Aid is short for Extreme Aid
>>17703505>>17703506they're all toy likebut 01 doesn't have a handle sticking out
since they're obviously going down the daily carry listwhat's next?wallet rider?belt rider?suit rider?
>>17703507Are you talking about motif or name? Pick one and stick with it.
>>17703515gun riderswe have pistol, shotgun, rifle
I haven't watched Kamen Rider since W, can someone catch me up on what's been going on with Decade?
>>17703464>english users pretending they are the center of the universe.
>>17703499You mean other than the giant rotating handle bar, and toys that you have to shake (that makes you look like your jerking someone off) and insert into the belt?
>>17703504I'd watch the movies at their release dates. The anniversary episodes have a very minor plot point in them, but a plot point nonetheless, so watch them just like any other episodes.>>17703523He's around. A lot of people here overstate his importance, though: he showed up early in the show to beat up Zi-O and Geiz for a bit, including making them lose the fake Ghost watch so they'd have to go get the real one, gave them his own Ridewatch, and sent Sougo to meet Oma Zi-O so he'd actually start taking it seriously. After that he disappeared for most of the middle half of the show, only showing up in the Geiz Revive and Kabuto storylines to ferry Tsukuyomi around and show her plot points she wouldn't have had any reason to see otherwise. Now that we're at the end, he got tricked into letting Swartz steal his powers and become Another Decade, but it turned out Tsukasa already stashed half his powers in the Ridewatch he gave Sougo, so Swartz only got the other half. Now he's talking about needing to destroy Zi-O's world because shit's completely fucked after all the Ridewatches broke, letting all the monsters out, and now about twenty apocalypses are happening at the same time.
>>17703504The only thing noncanon is Movie War CORE
>>17703507https://www.toei.co.jp/tv/ex-aid/story/1208131_2606.htmlHere's a link to an article written by Ex-Aid's chief producer stating "extreme sports" is one of the meanings of the Ex in Ex-Aid. You're welcome.
>>17703499Build's entire gimmick is inherently toyetic, you mong. >two halves of my action figure can mix and match! I can tell what the halves are because the eyes are cartoon silhouettes!His transformation is even a model runner injection mould anon, how blind can you be?
>>17703537>Decade is not that important>Writes multi paragraph long essay and summarysounds pretty fucking important to me
>>17703536>that you have to shake (that makes you look like your jerking someone off)What? They're waaaaaaay too small for anyone to mime jer..... oh, i am so sorry, anon. It's ok, anon, it's ok.>>17703543I was gonna post this, but it looked like they just wanted to talk about belts.
>>17703536You're all conflating suits with belts. Build and Zero-One are both pretty simplistic suits, with only two colors each and a minimal amount of bulk or extraneous details. Compare to how flashy and intricate a suit like Wizard, Ex-Aid, or Kiva is. On the other hand, Build and Zero-One both have very toyetic belts, with Zero-One's belt arguably being even more toyetic than Build's since it has collectibles with their own electronics and a transformation gimmick between card and key, where the Build Driver has bottles that you can shake for a clicky sound, but otherwise only has the bottle insertion and handle as points of interaction.>>17703544That's one paragraph describing everything he's done. He's been in something like six or seven episodes total, which is not a lot of screentime all told. He's more important than the other past Riders, who usually only appear in two episodes, but he's not constantly around or even around all that often until the end.
>>17703555Wait, whats even going on, are you saying some of these toys are less toys than these other toys?
>>17703555>Compare to how flashy and intricate a suit like WizardExcuse me, no. Build's suit is far more toyetic than fucking Wizard. Wizard Flame Style lends itself so little to action figure gimmickry that all they could come up with was making his god damn face light up. Silver trim and magic circles decorating his costume aren't any more complex than the spring leg, tread foot, ear/cannon scarf, and cartoon eyes.
>>17703555>That's one paragraph describing everything he's done.Mofo, just because you threw up your word spaghetti without hitting enter button doesn't mean you get to call it "one paragraph". It doesn't qualify as one. And cut it out with the endless run-on sentences. That's not how you use commas. Learn proper english grammar if you are going to post here you mong. Otherwise, go back to Brazil.
>>17703499Japan doesn't want the symbol of Heisei era to be a rider who transforms by giving himself a hand job.
It's all fucking toys, guys.
>>17703568At least he doesn't have Wizard's "whore belt". The thing begs "please please" every time. Then gets excited when you use it. And it has a giant black hand on the main character's crotch.
>>17703537Ok, I guess I forgot there was any actual plot to the anniversary episodes. Thanks.>>17703538Do you mean the full movie, or just the final section? I swear I am not playing dumb, just not sure with the naming.
>>17703570>The thing begs "please please" every time.Oh, you should've just said you didn't watch the show.
>>17703570We get it, you're a Build baby.
>>17703571OOO's section, it almost seems like they were gonna go one way, but then changed their minds. Look out for the word "Gills".
>>17703555>You're all conflating suits with belts. The belts ARE part of the suit. Stop splitting hairs.
>>17703574I remember Gotou becoming Birth, and then the show having Date as Birth for most of the episodes instead. Not sure if that's the "Gills" part or not.Guess I will find out. Thanks.
>>17703537>including making them lose the fake Ghost watchWell it's real, it's just the one that Oma Zi-O had and Geiz stole.But that makes me wonder, if Sougo not having gotten the Drive watch was making his final form imperfect, why didn't Oma Zi-O having his Ghost watch broken not cause him to weaken too?
>>17703590It might have, but Oma didn't summon Ghost during the fight. Sougo made the mistake of summoning Drive.
>>17703483you assume way too much, i'm just saying it makes sense for an english speaker to see them as being uncomfortably similarly named and they are
>>17703590Sougo not earning Drive is different from Oma not having access to Ghost.If having access to Ghost and Drive were requirements for Oma, then Geiz would have done enough by just stealing the Ridewatches.
>>17703380you are a dumbass
>>17703600They don't really care about English speaking viewers. We give them functionally $0 and 0 viewers compared to the Asian markets(primarily Japan).Let's be real here. Zi-O and Zero-One are not that similar to anyone that knows English. This is nothing like the suggested "Wii" and "Wii-U" problem. No one is going to think there is a connection between Zi-O and Zero-One. That's not how English works.
>>17703611They look similar dude.
>>17703611i didn't say they did or should though, i'm just saying that it sucks for us that 2 kamen riders, one after the other, have nearly the same name. that's it. >No one is going to think there is a connection between Zi-O and Zero-One. i don't know where you came up with that, noone is saying they're going to mistake one for the other, they're phonetically ultra-similar which is slightly annoying, it's not that big of a deal. many english speaking anons would have preferred something else but it's whatever. it's annoying that you're just denying a really simple thing making a bigger issue out of it than there needs to be. i know the japanese pronounce Zi-O "Jee-Oh", i don't though. that's all there is to it.
>>17703617ARMSBA BA BA BANG
>>17703621>i know the japanese pronounce Zi-O "Jee-Oh", i don't though. that's all there is to it.agreed. he denying something so simple
when are we getting leather or latex/wetsuit riders back
so do we start calling new riders as Reiwa era riders?
>>17703620Not really that similar though. This is really a stretch to say that they look similar.>>17703621Nearly the same name? I don't understand how you are functioning with English, if you think those 2 words are nearly the same.They are not phonetically ultra-similar. Zi-O isn't pronounced "Zeo". Even if it was pronounced that way(which it isn't), by the time you make it passed the first syllable, all of the "confusion" that you are suggesting would be gone. They don't even rhyme, have the same prefix, not homonyms, or anything other oddity in the English language.You are the one making this into a bigger issue than it needs to be. You literally said so yourself. You are aware of the correct way to say Zi-O, but then say it wrong by choice. You are the one turning this into something that it's not, by being obtuse.
>>17703644no we call them Cho Neo Heisei
>>17703621>many english speaking anons would have preferred something else[CITATION NEEDED]
>>17703669He made it up. He gave away that he is an idiot the moment he admitted that he says Zi-O wrong.
>>17703659Nope. ZO, Zi-O, and Zero One all are similar phonetically. Anyway, your opinion doesn't count since you are from brazil you monkey. Learn english.
>>17703689Fuckin' gotteem, mate.
>>17703689ZEDD-OH and JEE-OH sound about as different from one another as either of them are to Den-O. Better and that to the list.
>>17703689Didn't know deaf people watched Kamen Rider too.
>>17703703>>17703715>>17703718Listen here you Brazilian monkey. I don't care what the elevens think about pronouncing their version of "english". These are the same people who pronounce the food "Hot Dog" as "Hotto Doggu". Elevens butcher proper English on a daily basis, yet incorporate English into their titles. You are a fool if you follow their flawed example of pronunciation, and spelling. So learn proper English, and you might graduate from being a Brazillian mud monkey to at least a human being.
>>17703722I wasn't aware ZO and Zi-O were english words, great deaf one.
>>17703725Not him but they use english letters and not kanji for the title. so that other anon has a point.
>>17703729They use Latin/Roman letters. Not English letters. Do you pronounce "cliche" like "CLITCH" or "faux" like "FOX" too, you fucking idiot?
you are a nigger if you call kamen rider W kamen rider double
>>17703729Not really. They use katakana, which is indeed Japanese. Sure there's roman characters in the logo but they generally stick to the katakana in press releases, news articles, etc.
>>17703738Kamen Rider Daburu
>>17703737So the Brazilian monkey dares to suddenly lecture us on Latin and Roman now? What a laugh. Don't embarrass yourself.
>>17703747>They don't use English Letters. >Except they do.The Kamen Rider Double on this guy is funny as hell.
>>17703738B-B-But you telling me it's not called Kahman Rida Daabuuru? Nuuuuu! Dont ruin my otaku love for the show!
>>17703729Weird that despite you supposedly not being the same guy, said guy immediately began crying when people disagreed with you.
>>17703659>>17703703oh god you're one of those dumbasses who pronounces single words in japanese. in english it's 'zee-oh', never under any circumstances could it be construed as 'gee-oh' in the english language and yet you're lecturing me about my comprehension of english despite using the japanese pronunciation. i don't know if you're familiar with japanese romanization but you aren't supposed to just parrot their pronunciation of english words back when they adapt english words into japanese or else you'd say retarded shit like buraido or birudo. i'm not even trying to argue, i'm simply acknowledging someone else who made the observation that Zero-One and Zi-O are very similar when spoken in english.>>17703689not me
>>17703571>>17703504Movie Wars Core was meant to foreshadow later developments in OOO but they changed the direction of the series so it fails quite badly at that. Basically, the only element they kept was dino yummies being created out of objects and Goto eventually being Birth. Everything else was wrong, from character points (like Eiji being meant to take various part-time jobs) to plot points (the whole Gill Dino Greeed scene).Movie Wars Core debuted right after Sagohzo in the show, but timeline-wise most of it was meant to take place much later, around the 30s (Eiji even carries around all medals in the movie in spite of the suit for the blue medals not being finished yet and so they're never used), they completely failed at that though, so tons of things don't match up. The W and crossover parts are actually referenced in other stuff though, which gets kind of odd.At the end of the anniversary episodes there's a big message telling you to watch the OOO/Den-O movie, and it mostly works at that point aside from Eiji having the wrong medal count.OOO Wonderful can't fit at any specific point of the show either, but the backstory revealed there is actually referenced in the tv show's final episodes, including a brief clip of the movie exclusive orange medals. Eiji also uses them in Ultimatum.And then there's Megamax which is post-series and actually fits with the show.
>>17703703Are there seriously retards in this thread who copy the Japanese pronunciation of english words? You people cannot be serious. How disgusting.
>>17703779Half of English is borrowed and stolen. Basically none of this language is original. If you want to pronounce shit wrong, go ahead, but don't pretend like your idiocy is justified.
>>17703789>can't disprove argument>uses the "no u" memekek
>>17703795>can't disprove argumentIf you say so, I guess. Or maybe you're just so stupid that you can't understand the point.
>>17703789You have zero ground to stand on, don't retreat to a false sense of superior understanding of the language, that argument is totally irrelevant here. The japanese alphabet is fundamentally different from ours, theirs focuses on short, phonetic sounds rather than individual letters that build words. It's totally different. >>17703800that wasn't me and you don't have a point. the japanese will pronounce 'captain america' whatever way suits their language, as with any foreign language. That's how language works.
>>17703786How many times does it have to be said? Made up names using Romanized text are not English words.
>>17703805>that wasn't meGod, you're such a retarded newfag. Nobody cares.
>>17703805100% this>>17703814MORE SEETHING
>>17703809Memes aside, there are english words used in titles.Decade is not "Dikeido"Double is not "Daburu"Build is not "billdoh"Wizard is not "Wizaardoh"The closest one they got right was Ghost and Drive. But that's barely passable.
>>17703703Dumb>>17703779This anon knows what he is talking about. I completely agree here.
I really like Gaim, but why is the dialogue so corny? It's like it was written by a thirteen year old.
>>17703805Once again, I have to ask, how do you pronounce the dozens of common French words absorbed into our language which use sounds otherwise absent from English? Prononcing Zi-O with a J sound is no different. It's a made up title and has its own set of rules. Or do you pronounce OOO like "OOOH" and Fourze like "FOURS"?
>>17703829Decade might not be Dickaido, but it certainly is DEE-CADE though. The otherwise perfect English speaking belt says it clear as day.
>>17703838Once a word is brought into our language. It is adapted to our rules. Zi-O will NEVER be "Jeeee-Oh" in English no matter how much the otaku in you want it. It was originally our characters anyway.
>>17703829I'm not talking about those. Like I literally said in the post you're replying to, I'm talking about the titles which are made up words, like Zi-O.
>>17703847Except for when the almost exclusively English speaking belt says JEE-OH right at you.
so OOO FOURS FIVESSIXES we getting demon riders?
>>17703860Kamen Rider Sechs
>>17703838>>17703857look, you can't conscript people into saying Zi-O the way you like to say it, and we can't/aren't interested in forcing you to say it the way we do. I was only making an innocuous observation of how Zi-O and Zero One are similar names in english, and they do have similarities in english.now have a great fuckin day, capiche? jeez
>>17703864nah, gotta be an 8 thing
i was browsing archived /krg/s yesterday like i always do and it was funny seeing people take number theory as seriously as they did. i like how Gaim's part in the theory came from the 'lockseed' being 'rokku seedo' with 'rokku' evidently meaning 'six' in japanese, and the shape of the lockseed vaguely resembling the number '6'i don't think anyone bothered trying to incorporate Zi-O, or build for that matter into number theory, i can't remember what exactly put the kibosh on that
>>17703857The belt doesn't speak English. It speaks Japanese "engrish" which is just an adapted form of English operating within the constraints of their limited pronunciation range. In addition, if the show were ever brough into America, the belt words would mostly be changed, adapted or re-recorded.We have no desire to mimic the poor form of Japanese pronunciation in English (unless we are joking or using it as a meme). If you were actually around for all these years you would know this.
>>17703863Except the belt says the word itself. So you are wrong.
This is just like when people claimed "Ziku Driver" wasn't spelled "Ziku" when THE BELT FUCKING SPELLS IT OUT RIGHT THERE.
>>17703873yes because it's in japanese dipshit
>>17703611>They don't really care about English speaking viewers. We give them functionally $0 and 0 viewers compared to the Asian markets(primarily Japan).Actually they do care. Super Sentai took advice from Western companies for making some of their seasons.
>>17703880More than half of Super Sentai's money for Bandai used to come from Power Rangers. That's obviously a different situation.
>>17703869Drive mostly escaped it but there was some people bringing it back for Ghost. Ex-Aid was the true death knell since there wasn't anything to go off of. I'm sure someone has something
>>17703874big brain mode
zi o is 0which is to say 12
>>17703879Is "a jump to the sky turns to a Rider kick" Japanese too? This is some fucking impressive mental gymnastics you're doing here, anon. Keep going.
>>17703879Don't bother arguing with that anon. He's a weeb obsessed with the Japanese pronunciation. He won't even acknowledge anything else. You are fighting a losing battle.
>>17703890You don't remember the scene where Emu turns to the camera with a blank expression and simply says "eight"?
>>17703890People were saying Eyecons were 8-balls and Gashats look like nines upside down.
>>17703897you're the exact same guy, you just want me to quit and thus losenot gonna happen fucker
>>17703897Good to know that you admit your joke of an argument has lost.
>>17703894christ anon that's the zero-one driver not the ziku driver which is the one you were using to make your argument>>17703897i'm done
bout to drop the bomb on you fucks
>>17703905no please I have so much to live for
>>17703904So you decide to samefag and then lose when no one believes you? The belt says the official word. Deal with it.
>>17703905please do, none of the new topics are working
>>17703908i'm sorry i can't force you to have a higher IQ and actually be someone worth talking to, believe me i would if i could. unfortunately for the both of us, you're just below the triple digits and frankly it's getting us nowhere
>>17703902>>17703903>>17703904No one is samefagging. Just half the thread thinks your weeb obsession about pronunciation is absurd. You can't even get the names of terms right. It's "zero one driver" not "ziku driver". You are even a disgrace as a KR weeb.
>>17703914>>17703917nice samefag. you think I wouldn't notice you posting immediately 1 minute apart. just admit you are samefagging because no one is on your side lol
W is 2, self explanatory since doubleOOO is 3 , see aboveFOURZE is 4, the name フォーゼ has four letters, not to mention it being named for the four zero(40) anniversary Wizard is 5, ウィザード has 5 letters, Hand Author has a hand which has 5 fingers, also has 5 stylesGaim is 6, lock seed looks like a 6 when the lock opens, not to mention the simple fact that lock sounds like 6Drive is 7, it's name has a hidden 777 in it ラ ラ ブ, also has a mode named after vegas alluding to the 777Ghost is 8, mugen damashii has the infinite symbol appear multiple times, ∞ is just 8 sidewaysEx-Aid is 9, has a doctor theme and aid in it's name, 救急 sounds like 9 9Build is 10, has an animal thing going on, and 獸 sounds like 10, Build Driver also has a hidden 10 in it, ビルド takes 10 strokes to writeZI-O is 11,this one is a stretch, like all of the above, but zi-o can also be written as XI-O with XI being 11 also ジオウ takes 11 strokes to write
>>17703918whatever you need to believe i guess
>>17703919damnthe fuck you smoking bruh
>>17703919Excellent investigation, anon.
>>17703919fuck, does this mean the crackpot theorists actually won?
>>17703930crackpot theorists uh, find a way
>>17703921you are just using your mobile phone. dont try to BS me.
watch the next rider be named "Kamen Rider Zwei" or some shit
>>17703936My man are you a fuckin spook, there is no reason to be this paranoid lmao
>>17703942It'll be 2wei.
>>17703943stop replying to him!
>>17703874Number theory confirmed back for Reiwa.
>>17703779>in english it's 'zee-oh', never under any circumstances could it be construed as 'gee-oh' in the english languageReluctant as I am to get involved here, I'm not aware of anything official implying a pronunciation of 'Zee-Oh'.'Tough' is only ever pronounced like 'enough' and 'though' is only ever pronounced like 'woe'.Same spelling of '-ough', different pronunciations - context is key.By the same token, I'll likely always pronounce Zi-O as 'Jee-Oh' as that's the only way it's ever officially pronounced.
>>17703919that settles it
>>17703955That's a fine rationale and I respect your right to say it that way. But like, you could see why I would prefer to pronounce it 'zee-oh', right? Since I'm reading it most of the time and it's spelled with a 'Z' I prefer it that way as an English speaker. I was only making an observation that Zi-O and Zero-One have similarities in English.
>>17704020We're still in FUCKING PAGE FOUR YOU ASS WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU
>>17703880>Super Sentai took advice from Western companies for making some of their seasons.No. The only season that we know took input from overseas was kyuranger.
>>17703968>But like, you could see why I would prefer to pronounce it 'zee-oh', right? I switched to the JP pronunciation of ZX when I found out that's how they say it (and I like the way it sounds). However, I often find myself disagreeing with my own 'rule' and saying 'Cross-Z' as it reads because, well, the in-show pronunciation is (in my opinion) an absolutely terrible name.So, in answer to your question, no, words will always end up getting anglicised - I'd just say it's a preference thing and wouldn't necessarily accuse either camp of being 'wrong'.
>>17704078>So, in answer to your question, yesIs how I really meant to word that!
>>17704078some japanese naming schemes are terrible and only sound good to japanese ears.
>>17704058lol. do more research. did you honestly think "lets morphin" come from japan? lol
What's the name of the rider chips song that played during Grand Zi-O's debut?
>>17703091Fourze seems to be the easiest to adapt for the West.
