Which Shin show will be the backpack upgrade?
>AHHHHH I'M SHIN-ING!!! SAVE ME ANNO
>>21731178>Don't worry, Shin Godzilla from the hit Japanese kaiju disaster movie Shin Godzilla (2016)! We got your back!
>>21731181>*proceeds to Shin all over the bad guys*Wow, what an ad ever.
>>21731183They lied to us, the Eva 01 gun is not included in the final product.
This is now a PHASE VARIATION BATTA AUGMENT appreciation thread.
>>21731248I love the gap between the realistic gun and the cheap looking mask lol
>>21731183>"Ow, right in my Shins".What did Anno mean by this?
>>21731171Samurai Sentai Shinkenger
>>21731171I know just the guy
>>21731244>>21731245>>21731247>>21731248They didn't even end up using any of the scenes with this suit. All of the Batta Augs in the movie proper are entirely CGI.
>>21731320No they're not, the close ups of Ichimonji ripping them apart are the real suitshttps://twitter.com/Shin_KR/status/1659393441938169856?s=20
>>21731325>#2's belt opening up has the same uneven motion as the original where one side opens before the otherThese little autistic details really drive home how much of a passion project this is.
he needs to be stopped
>>21731360He already won.
>>21731360THIS IS NOT ANNO, HE'S EATING MEAT!
>>21731492Anon.. read the packaging..
>>21731492The wrapper says it's an impossible burger, you dolt. You fool. You absolute blind fucking buffoon.
>>21731492Anno is vegetarian?Unbased
>>21731171Shin Tom becomes the backpack and Shin Jerry becomes a giant hat for Shin Ichigo and his bike.
>finally got someone to come with me to watch shin kamen rider showingIm surprised that there are still seats considering i live in a densly packed area in NY.Also this is the first movie I paid for in a decade. Tickets are fucking expensive.
>>21731171Thunderbirds, Gatchaman or GARO
Shin Mazinger Z will be next, mark my words!Anno has said he is a fan of Mazinger, Gundam and Getter for years, Gundam is having it's movie supposedly being worked on, Getter has had some projects and Anno already worked on Cutie Honey......So the next movie will be Shin Mazinger Z and see if that revives interest in the franchise.
>>21731702Honestly we need a Sentai team if only so Kamen Rider isn't the only non-giant in the line-up anymore.
WHY DID I SCREAM LIKE A LITTLE BITCH FROM THE LATEST VIDEO
>>21731151You know, when we were memeing about Anno doing Shin Super Sentai, I don't think this is what any of us envisioned
>>21731151Wow, that was cringe. I'm not even trying to troll or be funny, that is probably the ugliest mecha I've ever seen. I've been into mecha since high school back in 2006, nearly half my life. Genuinely speechless.
>>21732018It's supposed to look absurd, that's the whole point of the PV, people were expecting a "Shin" crossover, Anno delivered that but ironically.
>>21731151that thing is the most powerful weapon in toku history
>>21731758After SKR bombed, there will be no more Shin filsm
>>21732072why do you keep posting this
>>21731151>make a sentai mecha with Shin heroes>doesn't feature any sentai group because Shin Goranger hasn't been made yetkek
>>21732078cause its true
>>21732018It was OMEGA BASED.
>>21731151>eva unit 1 ultraman and godzilla attacking the monster>kamen rider just posingyou aint doing shit ichigo!
>>21732831He's there for moral support.
>>21731293Perhaps the real Shin was the friends we made along the way.
>A challenger approaches
>>21733029Too powerful.. I kneel.
>>21731151Finally, a worthy opponent
>>21732034>people were expecting a "Shin" crossoverWere they? The movies have all been pretty self-contained. Memes aside I don't think anyone was ever expecting them to go full MCU, but for any potential crossovers to be something like this, goofy non-canon merch, or the Godzilla Vs Evangelion ride.
>>21735985PLEASE GOD RELEASE THE ANNO CUT!!!https://twitter.com/khara_inc2/status/1660186406726295552
>>21731151This just makes me want Shin Sentai even more. You know Bandai wants it considering they must've funded the creation of that physical suit.
>>21736260They're waiting for Power Rangers to die so they can use Sentai.
>>21736172wtf is this thing
>>21736405Power Rangers can't stop them from doing a Sentai film, especially now that Hasbro is trying to take the series away from using Sentai footage.
I bought the shin kamen rider rumble game (english 'asia' version) on switch. how do i get the eva/godzilla/ultra DLC? all the countries I'm trying say they can't access the eshop
>>21732034>>21735690Well, one of the characters from Shin Godzilla DID show up in Shin Ultraman...
>>21738222I like to think the producers watched Avataro Sentai Donbrothers and went >"...how the FUCK do we make sense of this?"
>>21738297didn't they pussy out on train rangers?
>>21731498he eats fishe
Imagine this in a SRW.Eva AT field.Godzilla atomic breath.Ultraman spacium 133 ray.This would be OP as fuck.
Reminder that Anno won.
>>21736172Amazing>>21738034A joke you didn't get, anon
Today is Anno's 63rd birthdaySay something nice about him
>>21731295SHINkansen Henkei Robo SHINkalion
>>21738358Yep, Toqger, Zyuohger, and most of Kyuranger are going unadapted. And there's a good chance Zenkaiger, DonBrothers, Lupat, and Kiramager are going to be skipped over, too
>>21738783Happy birthday master.
please Anno-san, please give the bri'ish a release date....
Okay. So Shin Mecha Godzilla, Shin Zetton, who would be the two of their shin?
>>21740120This makes me happy. I'd rather PR becomes its own thing and dies in a ditch rather than constantly pulling down sentai with it, even if the latest sentai seasons have been an assault to my senses and sanity.
>>21738745>A joke you didn't get, anonno i get it, but like what the fuck
>>21738783Long live the auteur.
More cardboard to consoom
>>21736172who's arm is Asami holding??
Shinbros.. It's been a slow day. Also, did anyone here on this general go to the early screening for Shin KR yesterday?
>>21744458Oh shit, the west is finally getting Shin Kamen rider huh. Nice, hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did
Oh wowie, it's Hiromi-san's birthday.
Still waiting for SEA release
>>21746455>>21746457>>21746459>no wasp woman gf
I got it!
>>21746480Damn that's thick
>>21738222It can't stop them in Japan, but it will force them to give Hasbro a cut if they want to release it outside of it.
>>21746481It really is. Great book, lots of cool unused concepts.The face of a grasshopper man
>>21746668I love her.
>>21746592Is he okay?
>Last Annocam was four days agoIt's over.
NEW TRAILER IS OUThttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2izcKsmBYV0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2izcKsmBYV0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2izcKsmBYV0
>>21748267Sayonara, Shin Kamen Rider.
>>21748267That ain't a trailer dawg, that's a fucking farewell. Shin Kamen Rider is leaving the theatres in June 6th.
>>21731151Honestly? It's bizarre Goji is among them. Godzilla was always ambiguous. Sometimes a savior, sometimes a villain, but most of the time he's the equivalent of that guy that rages when people step on his lawn and decides to blow up a city to make a point...or to remind humans they are not the apex on the planet. Or when someone kidnaps his kid and he goes on a rampage towards the asshole who did this.
>>217494551. They should leave a 'Shin' project out because reasons?2. You're fine with EVA Unit-01?
>>21749485Well if we ignore all that conspiracy stuff that is happening behind, the cast being dysfunctional in one way or another, the EVAs did try to stop the Angels from doing another Impact. Is it the original series, the End of EVA or Rebuild.Then again it's also hard to call NERV heroic considering the whole SEELE shit and Gendo's own plans. Not to mention the rest of the cast.
>>21749488>Then again it's also hard to call NERV heroic considering the whole SEELE shit and Gendo's own plans. Not to mention the rest of the cast....and the fact that the thing itself is a traumatised child shoved into a weapon made out of his own mother.
>>21749498Yep. Shit's hardly heroic here.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HC1qEC5kvI>Koumori's mask is literally a set of independent prosthetics>They still bothered to add the zipper to his headAnno, I kneel..
Current box office is $16 mil
Shin nigo and ichigo kurosaki wears different coats right?
>>21749986When do they publish earnings usually? I'd like to see sales figure from merchandise.
THREE MORE DAYS AND WE WIN US BROS
>>21753202I'm really excited.
>>21746455I love these two so fucking much.
It’s Nigou time.Reckon we will get a dx Half Typhoon soon?
>>2175608950/50. Still waiting for the CSM Shin Typhoons to be a thing though.
>>21735985is the movie out on torrent yet?
>>21753087I hope the merch sales are good enough to greenlight a sequel
>>21749986>>21753087>>21757585People overblown the box office sales too much only because it's lower than Shin Ultraman, it's still the highest grossing Kamen Rider movie.
>>21758085yeah but didn't they say they wanted to to gross far more?
>>21758095If you can find a source for that, I don't recall reading that literally anywhere. Would be a pretty bizarre thing to expect, since Kamen Rider has always been the smallest franchise of the 3
>>21758327Uhhh, no. Ultraman is. You can say Ultraman is far more influential and you'd be right but in terms of how much money each franchise rakes in, Kamen Rider would be much higher than Ultraman in that category.
>>21758392You're right, I'm retarded
>>21758625It's okay anon, we are all a little retarded.
One day left... the wait is killing me.
>>21753202And only US! they should also bring it to mexico! who am i kidding... I wont have any money to go see it anyway...
>Book tickets to one of two showings of Shin Kamen Rider at the local theater>Theater's almost packedI know I live between two college towns with high Asian populations, but I still didn't expect there to be enough weebs who care about Kamen Rider or Anno combined to fill even a single showing
>>21760417I live in a small neighborhood and my theater is 70% sold out. The one like 20 minutes the other direction is completely sold out. I'm pretty sure Rider is bigger than we think, even an anime shop at my local mall sold Sentai and Rider buttons before it closed down and they were always getting new ones in because they sold out so quickly.
>>21760417>have to take public transport nearly an hr away to see movieI forgot how far the theater is.
>>21760481>I'm pretty sure Rider is bigger than we thinkOh yeah, definitely, but I didn't think it'd be that much bigger. I expected it to be like 60% capacity at best, not sold out. I just feel that KR doesn't really have that pedigree among western weebs the same way Ultraman or NGE does, and certainly doesn't stack up with normies the same way Godzilla, or even Ghibli films do, but I guess I'm out of touch with weeb culture outside of 4chan lol.
>>21760544Rate his shrine
>>21760566it's so weird seeing bootleg Bearbrick keychains at the gas station near my job
I love this crazy ass design. Too bad he’s not opening a Nazi coffin in the movie. 1 more sleep bros!!!
>>21760535Western weebs love Rider waaaay more then Ultraman. The only real obstacle Rider has in expanding its international reach is Toei itself. Ultraman's reputation only really started growing here recently thanks to TsuPro making it so easily available.
RARBG is dead. Don't expect decent remuxes of Shin Kamen RIder anytime soon.
>>21761597FUCKKKKK THAT WAS LIKE THE ONLY SITE THAT HOSTED JAPANESE MOVIES WITH CONSISTENTLY GOOD QUALITY WTFFF
>>21760481>>21760535I ended up having to go to a showing a bit further away than usual because my local theater in NC sold out day one, right as I was trying to check out. Surprised the hell out of me. Probably shouldn't have though, the Shin Ultraman showings at the same theater were also slammed.Meanwhile the one I'm going to about thirty minutes away has still only booked six seats, and two of those are me and a friend.
where my non-americans at
>>21761598Not only that, but RARBG was also the only site that hosted the highest quality version of Shin Ultraman's webrip from Prime Video, while nyaa.si users still watch the inferior hardsubbed version. We are fucking dead for the next few months until the Blu-ray comes out.
>>21761618whats the difference from RARBG and nyaa.si releases?
>>21761620Size-wise, it was a 2-gigabyte size difference. RARBG was six gigs while nyaa.si's best webrip was only four. There shouldn't be a massive difference in quality here but since RARBG gets its Shin Ultraman rip from Prime Video while that one nyaa user gets it from a limited web livestream of the movie, the nyaa version of the rip looks like ass and blurry as shit, which is something to be expected when you rip a movie from a shitty source I guess.
>>21761597That's a big fucking shame. Not even live action movies on nyaa has as much of a good quality as rarbg does.
>>21761597I thought RARBG is hosted in Russia. Wtf happened?
>>21761664Admin members are both in Russia and Ukraine. Covid hit them hard and they are still reeling from the effects of the pandemic, with some admins losing their jobs and are still unemployed to this day. There's also the invasion in Ukraine which led to a good portion of the admins getting drafted from both sides. There's also the possibility of them being just too fucking old and poor to maintain the site since they've been running it from 2007, and the fact that they don't accept crypto donations just makes this a done-deal. It's a shame.
>>21761672Oh yeah I forgot to add, in Europe there's a price increase for data centers and inflation in both Ukraine and Russia. RARBG as we know it is practically dead.
>>21761628weird, im pretty sure this was from RARBG but mine is right in the middle
>>21761682Yeah, shit, I was wrong. It was only 5 gigs, but it was miles better than the Nyaa anonymous release. Also I have the 10 gig remux on my hard drive and I've been watching Shin Ultraman with that version instead so, my bad.
>>21761597What about 1337x?
>>21761686no prob, its really cool you managed to get the 10 gig one
>>217616891337x users only upload movies in 8-15 gig sizes if that movie was popular as fuck (i.e. Marvel capeshit) which Shin Kamen Rider unfortunately isn't. So no, don't expect 1337x to have SKR in the same quality as RARBG does. I checked their library for Shin Ultraman and their biggest torrent was only 1.5 gigs. It's a joke.
>>21761610here, Indon only got Geats x Revice just now when the Bluray already released like weeks ago
JUST finished this in preparation for the movie tonight and think it was really good up to Hongo "dies" then I think dipped a bit. Overall it was good. Did Ishinomori care for the live action shows?
>>21760417I live in a small college town with a movie theater to small to get notice from the campaign, the theater I'm going to is about twenty minutes away but is about 80%~ full, the last time I discussed KR with anyone in person here was at a card shop across the county but I full expect to see a few people there.
>>21761814The last series he produced was a toku series, so hopefully.
>theater almost full>handicapped seats taken>seat open next to medon't any of you fucking dare.
>>21762149I wouldnt dare to sit in the handicapped row so dont worry.
>diwntown disney completely sold out>even local showing almost filledThe KRchads are coming out of the woodwork
>>21761610Shin Ultraman still hasn't even been announced to come out at any point in the future here. The last Ultra-thing in general that came out here was a vhs release of the anime in the 80s.The last Kamen Rider thing was Dragon Knight.
>>21762232damn right we are
>>21760417I live in the NYC area, but even I'm surprised that almost all showings in the area tonight are almost sold out.
I'll be adding the rest of the Calbee cards to the folder sometime next week.
>>21762339you have only yourself to blame. you had your chance to see it at Japan Society.
>>21762418I preorded tickets for tonight, dumbass
Bros why aren't we getting a shin kamen rider popcorn vessel
Looks like they're doing a second screening if you miss it today. Fandango has stuff for the 5th of June as well.>>21761610Ted would never do that. Ted is a good man.Rip Sam Lloyd, taken too soon.
Bros.... ny theater says they didn't get the file in time and aren't playing it.Shocker has won....
>>21762622That fucking sucks. I'm sorry. (my screening is in about 90 minutes. There's at least 40 seats sold, so I'm hoping I don't encounter the same problem)
>that endingI've had the entire movie spoiled for me for months now and it still hurt.
Just came back from the movie>It really felt like four shortened episodes slapped together instead of one cohesive plot>Each Aug, their set up, and their downfall felt too rushed, and yet the dialogue scenes where everyone's standing around feel like they go on forever>The directing for the main characters (re: Hongo and Ruriko) should have leaned more into their humanity instead of their "other-ness". My non-Rider friend told me after the film: "I couldn't tell if Ruriko's actress was trying to be an emotionless cyborg, or if she was just a bad actress"
Just saw it, pacing was a bit breakneck but it was a fun ride.
I honestly wish the movie was slightly longer desuAdd another plot between Ichimonji driving off to work solo and them teaming up to take down Ichiro, plus give the ending slightly more time to breath
>>21762919A lot of scenes didn't make it to the final cut.
I knew Ichimonji was in the movie just through grapevine stuff so I spent a lot of time wondering how he was going to be introduced. Then he just walked out from behind a throne and was like "I am here and also already a grasshopper aug"Oh.. T-Thank You Based Anno..
>>21762924Hasn't there already been talk of Anno thinking about an extended cut?
>>21762908Felt the same way about the first point. Might have worked better as a TV mini series than a movie. But then they would have had to add in the usual investigation and tracking down parts of the episodes instead of the movie's KILL KILL KILL KILL speedrun.Had a "I GET THAT REFERENCE" moment at Hongou fighting Spider-Aug at the same place as in the TV show.
Got back from my showing and I'm surprised at how packed it was. Didn't think Kamen Rider was that popular.>>21762931The trailers for the movie that showed before the movie spoiled Ichimonji for me. He did just kinda show up.
>>21761814>Hongo "dies"If there was a sequel I think we'll see them go in the direction of the manga you posted. Where Hongo dies and gets put in a new android body.
>>21762936It was the same pacing as Shin Ultraman more or less and I actually felt this worked better to be honest.
>>21762942He's in Ichimonji's helmet so he's probably going to come back
I did not expect to see a Kikaider in this movie. Even if he did fucking nothing at all. Felt like a set up for him to finally do something but instead he just disappears at some point in the movie.
>>21762947It was Robot Keiji K, not Kikaider.
>>21762947>The Kikaider lookin dude is "J">Kikaider is Jiroubig think
>>21762936Honestly, I feel like it should have been this:>Everything up to killing Komori-Aug is the first movie, i.e. Hongo steels his resolve to fight as Kamen Rider>Sasori-Aug and Hachi-Aug should be the second movie, i.e. Ruriko and Hongo have doubts about Tachibana and co, due to Taki shooting Hachi-Aug with the bullet made from Sasori-Aug's venom, resolve with the two sides reconciling, and dealing with Ruriko's growing empathy and humanity. Probably end with the defeat of another Aug and Ichimonji as the sequel bait>Final movie starts with Hongo and Ichimonji fighting, Ruriko deprogramming Ichimonji and giving him the scarf, Ruriko dying, Ichimonji killing the KK-Aug and going off on his own, before convening back with Hongo for the Shocker Rider fight (Which would not be in a dark tunnel), and the Chou-Aug fight, concluding as in the film
>>21762949That makes more sense, since >>21762951 had the half face thing going on.
Fathom usually fucks around but that shit started in a fucking second so I missed if there was a Shin Godzilla gag like there was in Shin Ultraman. But goddamn that opening 15 minutes cuts through so much exposition people were still coming in and going "what the fuck how much did we miss"
Walking out of Shin Kamen Rider, unsurprisingly it was really good, the scene at the end when Hongo and Ichi properly team up and pose as the song plays got applause.My only sorta nit pick with it is I wish there was some more grounded Kung fu/fist fighting, all the fights was very heavy on the editing/effects which obviously I get but it would have been nice to have a bit of fighting without it too.
>>21762951and while Ichiro is more or less an Inazuman reference.
>>21762966I was surprised how punctual the movie was, I missed the first several minutes accidently and came in at Hongo appearing on the cliff right before misting the combatmen.
>>21762968to be fair the original Kamen Rider 1971 also had a shitload of awkward fight cuts and angles
Overall mostly enjoyable but suffers from the same problem Shin Ultra did where it felt like there were too many points that didn't feel connected at all. It felt more like multiple mini episodes stitched together than it did a cohesive single narrative.
>>21762968Agree on the fights. I'd rather see choreographed from a wide angle instead of the Western super hero movie style of a fuckton of cuts and spinning around in darkness.
>>21762976>It felt more like multiple mini episodes stitched together than it did a cohesive single narrative.That's the point
>>21762949What the fuck was the point of his inclusion beyond nerd cred/memberberry?
>>21762968there's a BTS video going over the Kumo/Hongo fight and there are like rows of dudes holding every kind of camera from a phone to a DSLR to a digital film camera and a GoPro on a gimbal. I'm surprised it only took Anno and one other person to cut it.
>>21762993Anno wanted to know how many white roses you can fit in a lapel and killed two birds with one stone
Overall a good showing on my end. Someone screamed out “OMG! It’s a power ranger” during the chase scene with Ichigou and Nigou. There was also cheers when they posed and again when they did the double rider kick.
>>21762968The after credit nostalgia sequence really made me feel this way. Somebody in my theater was saying “why didn’t they just do this?” No point really when ya can just watch the original series, but, this take on the action was a bit too kinetic.
>>21762949Well, J definitely looked like Kikaider
>>21763004did they do the trailer mirroring the show opening?
The real question is:How many people showed up wearing Kamen Rider merch? And were you one of them?
Glad some of you had packed theaters. Mine had about 10 people total.
>>21760726So is this Spider’s actual brother? The gay one that was supposed to be killed?
>>21762993His continued existence is the continued existence of Shocker. Ichiro wasn't the leader of Shocker, so Ichimonji's work isn't complete.
Just watched it in CT. Spectacular shit. Had a brief chat about Anno's work with another guy there.Really liked the approach to special effects. Just going full on live action anime at some points. The anno touch. Riders were well cast and the chick was a cutie. And then everyone clapped.Shin Raids Again and Shin 7 when?
>>21763027Shin Gorenger, first
>>21763006Yes, J was absolutely Kikaider, but it was basically just a blink and you miss it reference unlike K since its just "proto-K".
>>21762993He's being built up to fill the role of Big Machine in the inevitable sequel. Also it felt like he was gleaning some kind of humanity from watching Ruriko and Hongo throughout the movie, so he'll probably eventually gain a heroic streak.
>>21763018No one showed up with Kamen Rider merch. But someone was wearing a Naruto headband and someone else had a Neon Genesis Evangelion shirt in the Garfield font.
>>21762993>>21763026the tie-in manga goes into this:>I/Eye is in a remote location and is in contact with none of SHOCKER>K occasionally checks in with I/Eye and when they trade data I/Eye gives K new technology, new concepts, answers and more questions.>K goes back to each fraction of SHOCKER and reports.>K goes back to monitoring.
>>21763018One person wore a Kamen Rider Black shirt (it was a shirt that was just patterned like Black's torso, with the belt and the logo. Another wore a generic Kamen Rider graphic tee. Other than that, most people, myself included, managed to hide their power levels
After the credits ended, the guy next to me stood up and said "Awwww no V3?"Guess he didn't get the point of the 2+1 thing.
>>21763018I dressed up as Sento, belt included.
>>21763034I wore a Zetsubou Sensei shirt, and saw assorted toku merch on others
>>21763018Had my Ichigou/Kuuga/Zero-One shirt. Other guy I saw walk out had a bunch of Toku helmet patches.
>>21763018I didn't and I didn't notice anyone until I saw a black guy with a Rider shirt as I left the theater.
>>21763018I was in a bar across the street looking at people arriving. It was impossible because there was an early Spider-Verse 2 screening at the same time.
Been reading the Detective K manga, if they were to make a Shin K film following this, how do you think it should go.
Wow, we now have so many Ichigos…
>>21763041i had the same reaction but only because i got lied to and someone implied v3's belt got shown
>>21763018Someone came in what looked like a homemade Kamen Rider hoodie
Have any actual other Rider actors given their opinion on the movie? At the very least what have Fujioka and Sasaki said about it if anything?
>>21763056hey a few of those are just inspired by ichigo
>>21763057It does. Zero-gou's belt. Ichiro is also V3 like since he wants revenge for his family.
I know we don’t, but…
>>21763068well yeah i get that now, but going in i had assumed this person meant proper v3, this was a very cool way to do it though
Loved the movie, no one at the theater really dressed up though. Was afraid the ending might disappoint but I was happy with it too.
How would you do Masked World? Does Tachibana recruit the other Riders to finish off Shocker, or would it be too hard to fit all of the original Showa riders in one film?
Is it just me, or did anyone else thought a decent amount of the translation choices for the english subs were kind of crummy?>bearded dudes>you made me salty>MASKED RIDER MASKED RIDER MASKED RIDER>a couple others probably but I don't remember them at the momentMaybe I'm just being overly autistic.
The main complaint I have is that the battle with the Shocker Riders was super dark.
>>21763014No, it was in 4:3 and had other shots. Was that new footage trying to look old, or am I retarded and it was actually just 71 footage compiled? The text before and after it wasn't translated.
When I get the stream/blu-ray I'll be using the Locust Battaorg's face reveal for countless reactions
>>21763089I can live with Masked Rider. "Salty" was the only thing that took me out of the movie, the subs were serviceable other than that.
my faggot friend has an autistic "no staying for post credit scenes" policy so i missed it, what was it?
>>21763089YES, I don't know Jap but I cannot help but feel that 'glum chum' and 'hella salty' were 100% on point
>>21763018I wore my "I WILL FIGHT" Uniqlo shirt. I wasn't really paying attention to anyone else.
So working on a Shin Timeline for the shits and giggles. Trying to figure out a way to connect Shinji and Taki. We know that Shinji had some weird connections in Shin Ultraman, which could be explained is the agency in this filmz
>>21763099A short compilation of some scenes from the original show that they recreated in the movie, but you didn't miss that much. There'll be a youtube side by side comparison video one day.
>>21762993As a plot device, he's a convenient explanation as to how Hongo-as-Kamen-Rider gained a reputation with SHOCKER so quickly and how the Augs were always prepared for and expecting his arrival. As a character, fanwank.
>>21763091>>21763108probably doesn't have the other shots but:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgc6Z6qcC_4
Were there any 555 references that I might have missed? (Since 555 is Anno’s most favorite Heisei)To me, Ruriko and Takeshi’s camping out scene kinda felt like Mari and Takumi from the first few episodes from 555.
>>21763103I wore this one as well, with matching green pants.I had a red scarf I wanted to wear too but it was pretty hot today.
I knew shit was going to be amazing the second that Hongo instantaneously teleported from the forest to the dam in order to fight mooks.
>>21763137that part reminded of shin ultra when ultraman spins fast as fuck to deliver a kick. scenes that let you know the movie is gonna be perfect
>>21763104Use Anno logic: Godzilla/Ultraman/Kamen Rider either all exist in the new universe from 3.0+1.0 or they're all the result of separate Evangelions before Gendo is born and damned to fuck it up.
So Scorpion augs little mask hat was totally from commander woman from X-Bomber right
Hongo shaking off Spider by spinning so fast the g-forces pulls him off is the coolest shit.
scorpion-aug was a really really good part of the movie in my opinion. would love to see an extended cut of that
No Ruriko in fingerless gloves and gogo boots?Bullshit of the highest order.
>>21763018I wore my Agito shirt. Someone wore Go's jacket (Mach) and another was in full Build civilian clothes cosplay.
>"how do we contact you?">"just hold your hand up. we're watching."pan back and you'd see a transformed Shinji peeking from behind a mountain
So are Hongo and Ruriko dead dead, or are we going to pull some weird ass clone body shit to resurrect them?
>>21763171We'll get Shin V3
>>21763169Oh hey I did that >>21763043, maybe we went to the same theater.
>>21763171He'll be back
>>21763171Hongo will probably appear in the climax of Masked World to stand with all the Riders together one last time.
>>21763171Didn't Koumori-Aug have a whole bunch of brainless Ruriko clones?
>>21763018I saw one guy wearing a shirt with all the Heisei logos on it, and I had a Ridewatch with me that I kept in my pocket most of the time but took out and fidgeted with after the movie. Other than that it was mostly hidden power levels.
>>21763170Which would be worst? Hiding behind the mountain or inside a tank.
>>21763018A group of random people got together and did a group photo in the cinema hallway each in a different rider pose as people were going into the screening
I fucking loved it. Kino film
>>21763184Dude that scene was getting surreal as fuck. I had to turn to my non Toku but Eva fan friend, shrug, and just say "Anno man."
My one gripe with the film is that it didn't really show much of Hongo doing much 600 iq science stuff.
>>21763089I don't speak much Japanese so I can't comment on the accuracy, but I feel like it fit the movie itself. Despite all the philosophical quandaries and incredible violence, this is still an adaptation of a Saturday morning kid's show (which itself had at times simplistic, childish dialogue) at heart.
>>21763196That's a problem in series as well
>>21763181AMC in Altamonte?
>>21763089>>21763198Plus what the fuck is wrong with Masked Rider? That's... what it is. Glum-chum was probably some Japanese sing song rhyme thing that's hard to translate. They do love that word play. Salty felt too modern, too of the internet in present year. So that was weird. Bearded guys was whatever.
>>21763202Oh never mind, not even the same theater branch, surprisingly still within the state of Florida also though, so still pretty close.
>>21763206>>21763089What about>fresh out of the trailer oven
>>21763206>Plus what the fuck is wrong with Masked Rider?well its soulless for one
>>21763206>Ruriko saying things are gonna be "hella bad" when Butterfly-Aug hatchesI'd honestly forgotten she's only supposed to be like 18 or so until that point.
Wasn’t Hachi-Aug fantastic?So glad to see her in modern outfit.Her fighting scene surprisingly reminded me of Cyborg 009 by Shotaro Ishinomori and not Heisei Riders with accelerators.
>>21763213I'll admit, I laughed. K-K Aug was clearly meant to have a campy bent despite his dangerousness.
>>21763186>Behind a mountain>Everybody else freaking out Ultraman is just creeping on something it must be really bad if he's here>In a Tank>Everyone's seen the footage of him just fucking blowing up humans with his fists>Spun so hard he knocked off Kumo and turned him into fucking soap bubblesno win scenario
What if Hongo gets an android body and Ruriko becomes Mother?
>>21763219It was some really nice speed effects. It almost wound up having a stop-motion feel.
Okay, give me a show of hands, how many of you degenerates started to get a stiffy right in the theater when Ruriko's toes were shown when she was under the blanket, don't lie, I know a couple of you are freaks into that.
Whole theater cracked up at that sudden back flip on the beach, me included.
Kumo was a great opener. I always enjoy the "unfailingly polite and friendly but also absolutely nuts" types.
>>21763239>"I KNOW YOU CAN ONLY JUMP 44.66 METERS YOU CAN'T REACH ME.">go go cyclone fucking rocketsI shared a sensible chuckle with a few people
>>21763239Yeah, ours did too. I get why he did it to show that his leg had healed, but it was still out of nowhere.
>>21763250>breaks his leg>"He's probably okay...">IT WAS TURNED 360 DEGREES UNDER THE KNEEthat was fucking brutal
>>21763246I wish we'd gotten more of him using his extra arms. The way they moved was so fucking wrong, I loved it.
>>21763089Masked Rider was 100% a Toei stipulation. A lot of the figuarts for the showa Riders always listed them as 'Masked Riders' on the box, instead of the later ones being labelled as Kamen Riders.
Too much Anno for me. His themes of connection don't match all that well with Kamen Rider's self sacrifice. Action scenes were fucking amazing though.
>>21763018I saw a dude with an Arcle. I bucked against trends and wore a Jem and the Holograms shirt
>>21763236I was like “lol toes” but they were ugly, i thought they were hongo’s
>>21763261It's officially "Masked Rider" from the originals up through Decade (including modernizations and retroactive Riders like #3 and #4) and "Kamen Rider" from Double onwards. This is the FRS box for Hongo, for example.
Looking back here, I now regret not wearing my Evoldriver there. My only Kamen Rider shirt I owned was a Kamen Rider Club one, but I lost it almost as soon as I had bought it.
>>21763213>>21763216I forgot about those two.Ruriko seems to be some full on android/cyborg/fuck if I know in this. Maybe some of that shit was her trying to be more of a 'normal person'. She seemed to start with that kind of stuff a little.
That one anon who kept jerking off shin rider was right. I really enjoyed the film, it was my least favorite but I still loved it.Everyone in the theater cheered like motherfuckers when they announced that they were double Shin Kamen Riders™.I told myself that I wouldnt get 2+1 if they announced it but goddamn it.My friend who doesnt give a shit about toku didnt like it.
>>21763278She's still a person, she's just an artificial human with cyber brain augmentations.
>>21763281My dad doesn't know shit about toku but still wanted to come, and he liked it well enough.
>>21763295Wanna trade your dad for my friend?
>>21762968I didn't mind the hyper-editing for most of the fights because it's obviously meant to emulate the original's style, the only fight that I got really annoyed at the camera work for was the last bit of the final fight where they just went full shaky cam for the least kinetic fight of the entire film. Like I get what they were going for but it was just irritating ultimately, I think it would've worked better as just a single static wide shot and gotten the vibe they were trying for better.
Am I the only one who really didn't like this movie? It felt exactly like Black Sun to me. The characters were an inconsistent mess and random shit kept happening with no lead-up or payoff. Visually it was incredible, but it really felt like Anno making a clip show of his favorite TV show moments and trying to meld them into a semi-coherent plot.
>>21763305>It felt exactly like Black Sun to me.Shin didn't feel like a bunch of standing around wondering if someone should do something while telling the audience to not be racist to berserking monsters who eat gay people.
>>21763018I saw at least 4 people wearing belts, I was not one of them.
I did not respect anno's vision during the tunnel mass explosion scenemy fucking eyes
>>21763305It felt like what Black Sun should have been tonally and aesthetically.
>Spent all of the game fighting and playing as Rider 0 understanding it to be a girl because of the long hair plus the theme.>Watched through most of the movie expecting it to be a woman.>At the half way point have my suspicions it's Ruriko in some massive twist.>Then she died unlike the game where she's still at HQ.Haha.Overall it felt more like five 20 minute episodes stitched together way more than Shin Ultraman did, but holy crap so many of those shots were drop dead gorgeous, the suits were awesome, many of the fights were great, and I loved all the actors. I also feel like it would be way easier to understand going into it with no context for Rider compared to Shin Ultraman even with the constant dropped plot points or rushed past plot points. I loved them doing the "Even if there is no God or Buddha there is Kamen Rider" pose when he jumped out of the plane.My only big faults besides the pacing are the random flashbangs they throw at you after 10+ minutes of nearly pitch black scenes (The tunnel fight was painful) and that final fight. That final fight was fan movie levels of sloppy and before you get angry, yes, I know he wanted to do it that way because "Not everyone is a trained fighter" or something like that but Hongo and Hayato fought way better minutes prior.It's a shame they didn't translate that "Thank you for following the spirit of Kamen Rider for the past 50 years" message (If my amateur brain read it right) at the end.>>21763018There was a guy wearing a green Rider #1 shirt but everyone else was just normal clothes at my theater. I did chat with some guy about the various Shin movies on my way out though.>>21763171It'll be like the manga where Hongo's brain is in a jar except his and Ruriko's prana will be in it and then when Hayato's about to die android Rider #1 saves him because Tachibana used Hongo's money to make a body for him.
>>21763321lmao @ Data
>>21763321>Data>Raiden>Neji>AdaSpidey is a bit of a stretch but I get what you mean. Don't know if I agree with IHNMAIMS because didn't that AI actually hate humans and wanted to cull them whereas I and K just wanted to figure out the most optimal way for humanity to be at peace?
>>21731151Just got back from Shinmegakino of the highest order, Anno does it againShinbros how're we feeling?
>>21763311Yeah that scene was.... a choice. I did love some of the stuff early on in that fight though like the mook pinning Hongo and just shooting him in the dome for like 30 seconds straight.
>>21763337Fuckin hyped about how packed that theater was
Y'all I'm so happy they cast someone who actually looked like OG Hongo instead of some generic idol looking motherfucker, dude was killing it.
did they ever release overseas sales for shin ultraman? really wonder how these two did
the impòrtant question.cams? leaks?even Goji had one when it was out in america.For now the only hope is the chinese release for us non burgers.
>>21763336thats why its inverted. the movie is weirdly resonant with i have no mouth. IHNMAIMS is about an ai tormenting a small group of humans for kicks after exterminating humanity. shin is anai trying to make the desires of the worst humans come true because its the most efficient way to bring happiness to all of humanity. they even share the same phrase as a nameksake. their endings are weirdly resonant as well. the short story has its protagonist transformed into a mound of flesh, unable to experience or express itself. Hongo ends up downloaded into a helmet but getsto continue experiencing the world through the eyes of his comrade.
>>21763351I hope someone helps you poor commies out, and I apologize in advance for what the tunnel fight is going to look like in cam quality
When Hongo ripped a mask off one of the polymorph riders and revealed its' cgi face it genuinely gave me a little shock.
i remember hearing people complain about the cg from previews but seeing it myself its pretty fantastic. the actual quality of the models is fantastic, its pretty oneto one in reality. you could really see it in the hayato fight how the lighting on the cg model reflected the same way as the real suit did. their movemoents were very exaggerated so i knew what was cg and what wasn't but that seemed like more of an artistic choice. the wasp fight looked borderline stop motion but it gave it a weird sense of speed that ive not seen any other movie attain.
>>21763350at least in the US, Fathom doesn't make that public since they're such a niche distributor--but they're weird in that they're co-owned by AMC, Regal and Cinemark yet still distribute to around 100 chains total. They don't normally release individual numbers but on average they do between $60-80m/year. Which isn't a ton but considering that's better than not getting $60m/year...
>>21763367Overall the CG while obvious was very well executed, I was impressed.The bat was hilarious, but I think that's appropriate
>>21763375i honestly wonder if shin ultra did better than expected and that's why we got shin kamen rider what feels like relatively fast, or if this was always the planned release schedule
>>21763367Some of the CG is completely indistinguishable, for example the hill he stands on in the first appearance is a complete CG copy of the original hill
>>21763367>the wasp fight looked borderline stop motion but it gave it a weird sense of speed that ive not seen any other movie attain.Yeah it was a very smart stylistic choice that really sold it, that was probably my favorite fight overall visually. I honestly just really wish Hollywood would take some cues from something like this for once. Given a US action movie budget it could be truly fucking insane.
>>21763367It only really looked weird in I want to say K-K Aug's fight and when Hongo and Hayato were jumping around spamming attacks at each other. The Wasp Aug fight was great though you could tell it was CG at times like with how Hongo was jumping weightlessly at times.
>>21763375>>21763350Shin Ultraman made $600k from its two night engagement. Not bad for a niche, limited release.
Disappointed Scorpion woman was cut so short. But I guess it explains why her design is kind of lacking.
Fun Fact: The truck explosion scene in the beginning is not CGI. https://youtu.be/9DQxktgxscM
>>21763353>thats why its invertedFor some reason I thought the original boxart looked like that.>>21763396At least that scene was funny once they corner her. My entire theater laughed at that one and a lot of the shots where Hongo just stood there looking at the camera randomly in dead silence or the close ups on the faces.
>>21763393i'd say that's pretty great for a niche, two night showing, with basically no advertising going into it. i only found out from word of mouth
>>21763378No, I think Shin Ultra was an outlier. Shin Godzilla was the one that underwhelmed. It did okay for Funimation and they tried to do a second one-week run to capitalize on the hype but they expected A LOT. Doing single nights probably does get more money for the single screens. I checked just now and there's a new show added in the US for next Monday 6/5.
I want to hug Ruriko
>>21763403Nothing better than his posture like>...uh...hey. here I am.
>>21763018I saw one dude in budget Ichimonji cosplay minus the helmet.
>Do sneaky a Spirits callback outta nowhere.Anno...Movie's good. I think I still like Shin Ultraman over it, but it's still good.Hayato came in late, but he own it and did him justice. I like it.
Why did Ruriko take a break from her kuudere shtick when they spent the night in the garage and asked for jammies?
>>21763413>Hayato came in late, but he own it and did him justice.He was the best part of it. I loved his attitude and care for Hongo. Dude stole every scene he was in.>I hate teamwork, but I guess I'll give it a try.>>21763414She said a couple minutes later why which was that she wanted to be pampered since no one at Shocker, most notably her father or brother, ever did.
I think the Sasori(Scorpion) Aug was supposed to be some sort of in-joke by Anno since Masami Nagasawa is one of the most well known actress in Japan and also played a huge role in Shin Ultraman.What about Yutaka Takenouchi and Takumi Saito? Dunno.
>>21763414Because she was experiencing a genuine connection with humans for the first time
>>21763018I saw a chubby guy in an OOO shirt at my showing.
>>21763414because she saw her friend die and realized the reason they were adamant about going after Scorpion alone was they already knew the Augs' only weakness is her poison. Which annoys Taki because any aug Hongo won't kill means more work for him.
>>21763305Not a biggest fan of ShinKR as well, but it is miles better than Black Sun.
Was the dead mother in Shin KR the same actress as pic related
>>21763239My friend legitimately choked on his drink, that got the whole theater.
Showed up with a red scarf.It kicked ass.I was surprised as how packed the theatre was given I live in the milquetoast most basic bitch-y burg in NorCal.
Were the dark scenes, like the tunnel, too dark for everyone else, or just my theater? I took a gamble and went to a local artsy theater instead of a big chain and the setup was a little wack potentiallyI'm not big into KR, but even my cursory knowledge I picked up on some of the references. The audience had like no energy, with the only reaction being a chuckle after the suits line after killing Hiromi
>>21763520It was kinda hard to see what was going on at some times during that fight when I wasn't being completely blinded by the explosions and gunshots but most of the time it was easy enough to follow it.
>>21763520Same way at my theater. Couldn't see half of what was going on and sometimes it would just be black screen for a few seconds and then explosion.
>>21763528>>21763529Yeah, you could still kinda follow for the most part, but then Anno said "get fucked" by the bright ass explosions. The dark did certainly make the red eyes pop nicely though
>Shin Ichimonji only becomes a Kamen Rider only after violently shattering Hongo's legs>Ikematsu suffered a severe leg injury that left him out of commission for a few weeks while performing his own stunts at Anno's insistenceTruly Anno's autism is too powerful, even the smallest detail does not go unnoticed.
>>21763520Allegedly intentional since all of the Locust were CG.
Any California anon can confirm this? Is it true Sosuke Ikematsu coming to the screening over there?https://twitter.com/TokuNation/status/1664132617820676096
>>21763573Looks pretty true to me after scrolling down some replies.https://twitter.com/321Continue/status/1664137664319340545?s=20
The Japanese theatre release of the tunnel scene is brighter over here, I think you anons got the first screen version? That sucks
>>21762931He popped up earlier than that and I found that hilarious
>>21763633ive seen a lot of talk on film twitter even before this about how film making has shifted away from dagetic lighting. now all lighting has to be clearly sourced in the scene which means if your scene is set in the dark it tends to be basically pitch black and borderline opaque. I think a big part of it is that home viewing means youre so much closer to the screen and can discern way more detail, so when they're mastering the video they focus on that since its how 90% of the viewership will see it, but theater viewing tends to prefer brighter scenes. im hoping the home release will be easier to see, but if i remember correctly rebuild 1 came out too dark as well.
>>21763410Accurate portrayal of an introvert standing still while their extrovert friends do the talking
>>21763153More likely it's a Kaiketsu Zubat reference, since that's also Ishinomori. But who knows, might be both
>>21763534It was way, way, waaaayy better than opening weekend. You could barely see anything. By the second weekend it was fixed and way better. I’m sure you got to see that new version last night.
Yeah, I'm thinking it was kino. Left me completely empty and I haven't recovered since.
>be me>have brother that is gay>people bully brother>brother commits suicide>I hate people for pushing him>I hate myself for not saving him>I hate humans>I give up my humanity to end humanity>Get killed my Batta-Aug>never learned that Shocker brought my brother back to life>brother tries to get revenge for me>dies with me being the last thing on my mind.>I died without knowing that part.>Humanity isn’t all bad.
>>21761778Someone from distributor film ETA is end of June for Indonesia.
>>21764314DO NOT PLAY WITH MY HEART LIKE THAT MAN. I've been waiting to come out to indonese like no tomorrow and already given up on shin KR.
>>21764426Lots of people who went to "Geats x Revice" premiere said this by asking distributor, so yeah. Either End of June or Early July.
>>21764196KK Aug is not his brother.KK Aug is Kumos Kouhai, he calls him Kumo Senpai because he was taught how to be an assassin by him. He just has a lot of respect for him and is pissed that he died.gha585
>>21762951The title of the work was originally going to be "Robot Keiji J (Joe)". K's car being named "Joker" is a remnant of that.
Honestly curious how Sasori went from Ichiro's more-or-less-girlfriend in the manga, to a jobber in the movie.
>>21764907OK lemme elaborate, I meant like given their relationship in the manga you'd expect by the events of the movie she'd be like Ichiro's 2nd-in-command or something.But obviously the movie was written before the manga so what do I know.
it's over bros some toku eceleb didn't like it, this is now the only opinion about the movie you will see
>>21765667Doesn't this dude drink his own cum?
>>21765667Marcos definitely joking.
>>21765667I almost subscribed to this guy once. Then he said “everypony” unironically. Bullet dodged.
>>21765711not enough toy shilling in the movie for him and other reiwa fans
Would Disney let Anno do Shin Star Wars?
Something I appreciated about the Rider Kicks in this movie was that, unlike pretty much any other time in the franchise's history, the kick itself isn't what kills the opponent, but instead it's the force of being slammed into a wall/the ground basically by a person-sized freight train moving at mach 2.
>>21766106never, he has too much creativitythey value asskissing above everything
>>21766106Did you mean Shin Message From Space?
So are the intelligence guys supposed to be Shin Ultraman characters or is just a coincidence?
>>21766196>that bit where Hongo has to actually stop and dislodge his boot from the inside of Koumo-aug's back
>>21766259Meant Koumori. Too many K-Augs.
>>21756016This nigga really used an iPhone to shoot a feature film.
>>21762962No, we don't need 3 damn movies.
