    Yep. 'A new legend' is part of the show's tagline.

    I managed to catch this week's Zero-One episode while it aired.
    Yua finally taking a stand was pretty good. As for those upset that she'll likely not get Fighting Jackal as an upgrade, honestly this fight makes me feel like she doesn't NEED it yet as she makes Dashing Cheetah and Lightning Hornet work, with and without Vulcan's help. Plus there's the fact that Gai's just crap at using Thouser effectively, much less against someone that probably knows the ins and outs of the system. Even with him buzzing her brain during and after the fight, she still got the final shot in and out of suit.

    As for what might come next (in relation to the scans above)...
    Someone put up a quick theory in the KR Reddit that would be pretty fitting. See, while the Ark is getting it's own Rider-self in the form of Ark-Zero, it still needs a physical body. The poster offered the idea of that being none other then Gai. It would be fitting on so many levels that the guy that helped make Ark and MJ.Net what they are and see them as tools in his revenge against Aruto's granddad would in turn be taken by them and used as a tool himself to spread the will of the Ark. Plus as long as he doesn't lose ZAIA and/or Hiden Intelligence, that means they can also use him as a puppet CEO to gain a lot of resources like ZAIA's Gigers.

    In regards to your second spoiler:
    There was some talk at one point about Ark Thouser as an upgrade for Gai, so i'd almost 110% bet on your statement being correct - Gai gets hijacked and later on upgrades/merges. See also how we knew Burning Falcon was a thing way before we actually saw spoiler designs for it.

    It's looking increasingly like the end game is going to involve a fractured MJ.net teaming up with Hiden - Hopefully Jin's characteirzation sticks, rather than gets re written. That'd be my bet at least./

    Ideas hate it when you anthropomorphize them

    I'm having a lot of fun going through all the random episodes on Toei's channel. It's nice to have subbed versions of this obscure stuff without having to hunt it down, and possibly never get the download to finish. Or only finding raw versions.

    This is an interesting little edit to a big moment in Kamen Rider Zero-One's last episode.

  • ReynoldsReynolds Raving Rabbit Registered User regular
    The ultimate powerup being a digital metal hawk that flies around screeching electric guitar riffs to give the hero the power of the earth's memories of the concept of EXTREME made me completely lose it when that episode aired.

    The mysterious stranger repeatedly saying that he's awakened the power of EXTREME and the main bad guy screaming EXTREME to himself in his office pushed me even further over the edge.

    Can't really overstate how much this week's Zero One ruled

    It seemed unusually well-crafted in the sense of like, artfully done scene transitions

    I've not been anywhere near as interested in Fuwa as the rest of the internet, but last episode's reveal and his new position with Aruto really make him work for me in a way he didn't quite before

    And I feel like this episode's reveal on Horobi finally justified that character's presence for me

    I did like how quick Horobi got his butt kicked by MCH once Aruto brought it out. He might be an AI that learns quick but unlike his fight with Thouser, Zero-One has both the power AND skills to back it up. I'm curious to see where things with Jin will lead. I mean, Jin's gotta know that Naki and Raiden being brought back under Ark-jacked bodies isn't in line with what he wants. Best guess is he's planning on a last-second swerve to free all of MJ.Net from Ark's control.

    With this week's episode of Zero-One, the show's gonna go into a two-week hiatus of sorts due to Toei having shut down filming over the virus. However, we will get a pair of clip-shows instead based on Aruto and Izu's points of view over the events of the show. What's interesting about them is that they plan to bring in something that's been in viewers' faces since the series began.

    Initially there just as flavor in the show's intro, this version of Izu will be part of the clip-show episodes and be explained.

  • JimothyJimothy Not in front of the fox he's with the owlRegistered User regular
    It’s actually three weeks

    Next week is Presidential Special Part 1 (clip show from Aruto/Izu’s perspective) and the unaired Kirameiger Episode Zero

    After that is Presidential Special part 2 and Kirameiger Episode 1 director’s cut

    Third week is Shooting Special (Fuwa’s perspective clip show) and Kirameiger Episode 2 director’s cut

    Ah, thanks for the clarification.

    Looks like the Knight Of Glory had an urge to become the King Of Time.

    Toei's gonna have a special IXA Festival, based on Kamen Rider Kiva's secondary Rider. Pre-orders for the merchandise released in honor of the Rider (not character as the Driver was as much of a town bicycle as the Faiz Gear if not more so) start on May 25th and include a reissue of it's SH-Figurarts figure, a T-shirt of it's super-form Rising IXA, a rare card for the Ganbarizing arcade game and most importantly a Complete Selection Modification issue of it's Driver.

    A good look at what might be Kamen Rider Zero-One's final boss was put up.
    siWHk4S.jpg

    According to Rangerboard, Kamen Rider Ark-Zero will be voiced by Show Hayami. His roles in previous works include Dragon Ball Z's Zarbon, Trigun's Nicholas D. Wolfwood, and Bleach's Sōsuke Aizen.

    Here's the commercial for the IXA-Driver. It looks to have two sets of sound effects depending on which year it was active. It'll also include IXA's Fuestles as well as the Ixariser for all your Rising needs.

    An early magazine scan's revealed a new form for Zero-One. Maybe. It's a bit early though to say what it's meant to be exactly.
    xiFsoAi.jpg

    This is Kamen Rider Zero-Two. A movie form, final form, someone else using the Zero-One Driver, it's not yet explained. All that's known is that besides the obvious Kamen Rider Nigō homage, this is achieved using a new Key and an attachment for the Driver.

    EDIT: Here's a slightly better look at the form and gear.
    0ve2FNH.jpgr53DPPs.jpg

    Apparently the attachment for the Driver and the Key are called the Zero-Two Driver Unit and the Zero-Two Progrise Key. Note that the Key has what looks to be Zea's 'face' on the end. If it is a final form, it wouldn't be too surprising that it involves a deeper connection to Ark's younger sibling.

    On the topic of figures, the SIC figure for Faiz has pictures up for it. Besides having the Faiz Gear as accessories, the figure's chestplates will also swing up and onto the shoulders ala Axel Form. Heroshock's got all the pics as well as ones for a SF-Figurarts Momotaros that's also coming out in the same month as Faiz, October.

    Here's a closer look at the new Key coming to Kamen Rider Zero-One.

    This year's Sentai/Rider music concert was put up online and I thought I'd link it here for those that dig hearing some live renditions of current and classic themes.

    June's scans for Zero-One are up though naturally they're a mite sparce.
    KnhKRV5.jpg

    According to some early translations, Zero-Two is indeed Zero-One's final form and brought into play in order to combat Ark-Zero.

    c3cEjYq.jpg

    While there's nothing yet said outright about it's abilities other then being stronger then Ark-Zero, it seems as if it could have some sort of clone/copy ability if these pages are any indication.

    EDIT: Bandai just put up a demo-video of the new things coming Zero-One's way for those interested in how it sounds.

    6/8 EDIT: Oh crap, Bandai released a small toy commercial for the new gear and it just made me realize something.


    Zero-One's new chest-piece and the 'scarf' attached to it is meant to be a 02, the latter number squished.

    Sorry for the multi-posts but Shout Factory put the first episode of Kamen Rider Kuuga up on Youtube for those that haven't seen the series yet.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular


    Shout Factory's announced the overseas airing of the Build/Zi-O crossover film on the TokuSHOUTsu twitter, likely through the same channel seeing they confirmed it'd be an online showing. Also, when asked if this meant if either show the film's based around would be likewise airing here, this is what they had to say.

    Weird, why show the crossover film out of context?

    Things are gonna get pretty good in Kamen Rider Zero-One if this preview picture's any indication.

    Trailer for the official sub of Heisei Generations Final is up. However, it's just the original trailer for the movie with the screencap seen up above added at the end. Prior to the July airing, Team Kamen Rider (the Rider side of Bluefin Brands, the online store that's bringing Toku memorabilia here) will be airing specials from July 6th to the online release date of the 11th to explain the various Riders showing up in the movie.

    This is a strange way of bringing this movie to English audiences, but cool.

    In relation to HGF, here's a neat and apparently official combo song of the various Heisei themes.

    Zett’s episodes leave YouTube after two weeks, so if you haven’t seen the first episode yet, might want to get on that in the next couple days

    Uh

    y'all watch the newest Z?

    The last scene and preview for next week are bonkers

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    So another Rider in Kamen Rider Zero-One's getting an upgrade and someone noticed something about it in that it ties into another object on the show. Don't look if you don't want to be spoiled.


    So Ark-Zero's getting an upgrade called Ark-One. And someone saw that the chestpiece for the form bears similarity in design to part of the ZAIASpec. Some are thinking that this could mean that Gai himself could end up as a host for the Ark's Rider-self.

  • OwenashiOwenashi Registered User regular
    Here's something neat.



    Woz's actor, Keisuke Watanabe, did something special for the US airing of HGF, signing a BeyonDriver for one lucky winner of a contest Bluefin Brands is holding at the moment.
