    They continuously reuse locations in Rider/Sentai. Tokyo is only so big, after all. Here's the most obvious example. Spoilers ahead, most likely.

    There was a time a few years ago when I was wild about Kamen Rider. I watched Kamen Rider Kabuto as soon as I could find a new episode. I would then re-read my favorite part of Kamen Rider Spirits and play Viewtiful Joe while waiting for the next episode to show up.

    I'm just not feeling it anymore. I haven't watched anything since Kabuto, and even re-watching that is weird.

    Kinda want to watch Kabuto after VV, because my understanding is that it is epic.

    I've caught the first couple episodes of Kabuto. I certainly like the concept of a super-speedster Kamen Rider, but I heard the lead character could be a bit annoying with his his 'can't-do-wrong' attitude. It does seem OOO is borrowing a note from Kabuto's monsters when it comes to how the lead villains create their monsters-of-the-fortnight.

    Yeah, pretty much of all of the main characters were annoying. The armor designs were really cool, the monsters were neat, and the fights were pretty great.

    It looks like they plan to use OOO's Medals not just as parts of the OOO-Driver toy belt but also for a new arcade game.

    Not that they're giving up on the current Ganbaride card-scan game...

    I bought Ganbaride for DS. It's pretty awesome.

    Kabuto is a great series. It just takes a turn for the horrible around 2/3 through. Still has good moments, just a lot of crap that makes no sense. And plot threads get abandoned continuously. The ending makes up for it a bit, though.

    And Kagami/Gatack is a total bro. Basically, just pretend he's the plucky main character with a heart of gold and Tendou/Kabuto is the dick 'rival' character and the series is much, much better.

    This is very accurate. Especially as Kagami redeems just about everyone in the series. You'll notice when people rise above their pettiness it's when he's around.

    Hmmm, as tributes go, this isn't half bad. Plus the way Toei's reacting to KR-vids on Youtube, I'm surprised it's still on.

    Sorry for the double-post but the second episode of Kamen Rider OOO was subbed today, with a version (either Overtime's or TaCoBar's) popping up on Youtube. Best to watch it before it's yanked, especially since it has a pretty nice fight at the end.

    That episode was really good.

    Anyone who isn't watching this and has any possible interest should really watch the first two episodes. Get in on the ground floor while you still can.

    Here's something I didn't think anyone would bother subbing. It's a little silly but it showcases Double's Gaia Memories decently. Doesn't look like they had money in it's production budget for all the usual special effects though.

    That was pretty fun. It doesn't look like part two, with the food Dopant, is up yet.

    I'm watching all of the Delusion Diaries now. They're great. Shotaro does an amazing Ryubee Sonozaki impression.

    Rgreg just posted the first subbed part of this week's episode. It seems like it'll take an hour or two for all three to pop up if it follows like his previous episode postings. He also made a notice that the vid-parts will be up only for 24 hours so view them as soon as possible.

    Also, a summary for the upcoming Double & OOO movie's stories has cropped up and has been translated. I don't know if it's 100% legit but here's Wikipedia's version of the plots.

    So I found a place that had SH Figuarts Accel Trial for a decent price.

    Why the hell do I keep wanting to buy all these Japan website-exclusive figures.

    I broke down and preordered Kamen Rider Joker. $50 before shipping is even considered. And it won't even be out until February.

    How much did Trial run?

    $78 shipped. And believe me you won't find a better deal on him.

    I would like a Figuarts Weather Dopant to fight him, but that's an exclusive as well and the pre-order period is long past, so... yeah, probably not.

    ...I might pre-order Joker after Christmas, though. Or maybe I should actually buy regular Accel and CycloneJoker.

    CSToys end their preorders on the 10th. I wouldn't expect anyone else to keep going much longer.

    I'd go for the preorder over Accel at least, there tends to be plenty of him on eBay, and HLJ even puts him on sale. Cyclone/Joker is hard to find now, but he'll probably reappear if they keep making W movies. Joker is way too awesome to possibly miss, though.

    Not just pirates but possibly reality-hopping pirates. Kaizoku Sentai Goukaiger seems to be for Super Sentai what KR-Decade was to Kamen Rider. Possibly with the whole 'transform into other heroes' bit. And when it comes to Super Sentai, there's a lot of heroes to change as the poster below shows.

    goukaigerposter.jpg

    Talk about your Forever Red. Their Megazord looks to be pretty cool too in it's original form.

    ban13477.jpg

    And by 'original form', I mean that it looks like they'll be recreating Zords of old that will be able to link up to it. Like the Red S.P.D. Ranger's Delta Runner 1 Zord.
    Spoiler:

    And to make this post more topic-friendly, take a look at the latest previews for the Double/OOO crossover movie which promises to show the origin of Double's Kamen Rider Skull, the debut of OOO's second Rider and possibly OOO's mid-season upgrade, the Red Core Medal Combo. I put the second one in the box due to the preview image showing off the movie's final villain.

    Movie looks great!

    Of course, we won't be able to see it for like a year. Unless it gets onto YouTube early, like the W/Decade movie did. The Den-O/Diend movie is just now available. Still waiting on the A to Z movie.

    So guys they are making another Skull Figuargs, from the upcoming W/OOO film. It's an exclusive like the first but if you hurry up you can get it ordered without having to pay ridiculous secondary market prices!

    It seems the Double/OOO crossover movie, Movie War Core, did pretty well in Japan as it's the number-one movie at the moment. Of course Toei's didn't waste any time announcing the next Kamen Rider films. Double's getting at least a pair of straight-to-DVD movies under the banner title 'Kamen Rider Double Returns'. However, both movies are like Den-O's recent Episode Trilogy in that the stories feature Riders other then Double. In this case it'll be Double's 2nd Rider, Accel, and the villain of Double's solo movie, Kamen Rider Eternal. While Eternal's story (The Beginning of N is the End of E) will act as an origin story and possibly feature the prototype for the Gaia Memory, Accel's (Sacrificing A for A) is rumored to feature their next version, the T3 Gaia Memory. What's confirmed is that Accel's getting a third form to transform into, seen in the box below...
    Spoiler:

    Toei also has plans for a special Kamen Rider movie to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the franchise, complete with setting up a site with a very brief video-teaser. Not much else is known at the moment though the teaser does seem to indicate that the original Kamen Rider and at least Den-O's time machine, the Denliner, will be involved. For those unfamiliar with the original Kamen Rider, here's a look at the show's opening.

    They'd better make a Figuarts of that new Accel form, is all I'm sayin'. I know it will be an exclusive, that is no obstacle to me. I have Trial form already.

    I preordered the shit out of Skull the moment I heard about the new one. He'll go very nicely with the matte Joker I'm also waiting on.

    Something that was pointed out to me recently, about the Double movie titles.

    Kamen Rider W RETURNS
    Kamen Rider W FOREVER : A to Z/The Gaia Memories of Fate
    Kamen Rider *OOO & W* Featuring Skull : Movie War Core
    Kamen Rider W : BEGINS Night

    Uhm... what about the movie titles?

    RETURNS is going to be a series of DTV movies so it's not quite the same as the theatrical releases, and Begins Night was part of a feature with that Decade movie and the crossover bit...

    I need to order a matte Joker too, and get a CycloneCyclone/JokerJoker pack... so I can have matte Joker with matte Skull and shiny Joker with shiny Skull... oh god my OCD will kill my wallet.

    I wouldn't mind having a Skull figure myself. This special figure of Double's super-form based on it's appearance in his solo movie is pretty nice too.
    Spoiler:

    I wouldn't mind having this S.I.C. (a line of figures with serious if tweaked detailing) version of Double either, though I think the effect-stand around it belongs to another line's Double.

    Heck, I'd pay a few bucks just to have this sitting on my desk.
