2016-03-28T04:08:33.294-07:00

I need to see it a few more times before I can definitively place it, but I thought it was a pretty well put-together film overall. Novashocker's plan was laughably nonsensical and the final bit with Ambassador Hell was weird, and not quite how I would stage it, but otherwise I dug this one a lot. Could not disagree more about the Legend Rider parkas, I thought that was a very fun sequence (if a bit out-of-place in a Rider 1-centric movie, but eh, it's a franchise. Whaddya gonna do.) Fujioka was great of course but I was quite impressed by Shun Nishime, and I dunno. Going in with the trepidation that I had, I watched this movie with a big smile on my face, and walked out quite pleased with it. For me, that's just about the best thing a Kamen Rider movie can do.

2016-03-26T07:07:25.521-07:00

Personally, I thought this was the worst Kamen Rider movie I've seen. Fujioka was charming and loveable as always, and looked like the most virile 70 year old of all time (only his kicks were a bit weak), and a little of the comedy landed pretty well. The action was quite awesome for the most part, but very sparse, and the fanservice stuff (legend parkas) was disgusting. I'm always glad to see Igadevil's eternal optimism though, so I'm looking forward to hearing you say "I really liked it". Now I listen...

Thanks man. As much a struggle as it can be to get out new podcast episodes, let alone other stuff for the site, it's going to take a lot for me to finally throw in the towel. I have the best, most patient and understanding fans in the world, so I owe it to them to try until the very end.

As a man that struggles to even find time for games thanks to life constantly getting in the way, I can only imagine how much life can get into the way of creating, editing and then uploading podcasts of any length. I'm a long time listener and will continue to be, no matter how much time passes between uploads, until you officially say "Nope."

Hi Paul,

I found your podcast recently and have been a casual Kamen Rider watcher for many years (really started during Faiz). I was wondering if you were looking for people to host with regularly since I think it would make for great content for Kamen Rider fans everywhere. Thanks for all of your hard work and good luck with the new year!

2015-02-05T20:41:34.427-08:00

Good to know that you are bringing the old content back, i really loved the Ishinomori Week specials and actually read them many times. Hell, those things made love Kikaider back when i barely knew the show even existed (for the record, i have now watched Android Kikaider/Kikaider 01 and it was amazing).

Looking forward to the old/new/borrowed/blue content and whatever crazy shennaningans you might have up your proverbial sleeves.

PD:The new design for the site is slick. That is supposed to be a compliment.

2014-10-04T19:40:00.995-07:00

Nice, gonna get it now. Before I listen, a little something regarding Marika, now I haven't heard your views on her yet, but I've heard the views of others. The complaint seems to be that she seemed to only aspire to play second fiddle. But I think that might be a bit of an East vs West mentality. Eastern mentality gives a bit more weight to Support Role characters. Characters that are loyal and willing to sacrifice themselves for the sake of allowing others to succeed, are considered cool. Whereas I'm thinking, that's less so with Western thinking, where if you have the ability, you should aim for the top spot yourself.

An easy illustration would be this. Take a look at any manga or anime with a student council. The vice president character is more often than not, the actual person who runs everything. He's super competent and enables the president or main characters to do their thing. Or any character who has a butler. The butler is often portrayed as a sort of superman who intentionally holds back so his master/mistress could take the spotlight.

In a more western setting, there's the Sidekick. As a second fiddle character, he is typically scorned. He's the weak link. Perhaps even an out and out embarassment and the object of ridicule from the fans. Dick Grayson was the object of ridicule, accused of being Batsy's boy toy. Jason Todd was outright killed by the fans via polling. Tim Drake got off better. And Damien... he sticks out like a sore thumb. He's kinda like Scrappy Doo.

Anywho, with that in mind, I'm thinking that was Marika's intended role. To be the Guan Yu / Zhang Fei / Zhuge Liang to Baron's Liu Bei. Though it perhaps didn't click as well as intended. But hey, a female Rider dies. Yay! Gotta keep that tradition.

2014-09-26T08:19:56.476-07:00

I would argue that that is the one thing Gaim is missing as a series: someone, either the people of Zawame City or even Kouta himself, calling him 'Kamen Rider Gaim'.

So by virtue of Ichigo giving him that name by the end, Kamen Rider Taisen is effectively better than all of Gaim.

2014-09-25T07:59:39.652-07:00

I wrote up a big long thing about both endings I'll get around to finishing some day (it was pretty stream-of-consciousness) but I think I enjoy them about the same, but in a way I wish they would have just done one ending that combined the message of both. It's weird how each ending almost sort of works as well (if not better) for the "losing" side, which is why I didn't think the theatrical cut had the Heisei ending at first. They aren't the decisive and clear-cut "we're right, they're wrong" endings as I think a lot of people wanted, but that's why I do like them- at the end of the day these are a bunch of heroes here, and I'd rather everybody gets to go home happy than needing some silly point made that will be forgotten/ignored by next year anyway. Kamen Rider doesn't exist without the Showa Riders, but it doesn't continue without the Heisei Riders. You need both; you can't have one without the other, which I feel was the real message the movie was going for (or got there unintentionally!)

If I have to choose, I actually do like the Heisei ending slightly more, but not for the words or the point it's trying to make. I just like Rider 1 helping Gaim up after he calls him Kamen Rider Gaim- THAT to me is Rider 1 summed up perfectly.

Kikaider Reboot is coming soon, once I can get through the 3-hour mess I recorded for it.

2014-09-23T08:58:34.214-07:00

I am surprised of the negative reactions towards the heisei ending since i really liked and it seems to me that it fits better with the narrative of the movie (which is basically the Heisei Rider proving that they are worthy of the Kamen Rider name and the Showa Riders stop being mean to them).

I know its silly, but that is exactly what makes it work: Tokusatsu is an inherently silly genre, but its morals and messages are still worth sharing. Yes, Kouta taking the blunt of Ichigou´s attack is silly, but you can´t deny that protecting all life is a positive message that it is most definitely Kamen Rider (incidentally, it is also very Precure).

All in all i enjoyed the movie, but i don´t think its a good movie; Kamen Rider Taisen is in fact two good movies and one ok movie. Really, the Faiz/x portion, the Shuu/Decade portion and the whole crossover/badan story line are very diferent in tone and make for good independent stories, but the combination still feels a bit odd (as you said, it is as if they had inserted a Faiz/Decade episode into the movie).

I look forward to you Kikaider Reboot review since i love Kikaider and am apparently a masochist.
