Points of interest: Drive/Gaim Full Throttle movie trailer in the OP. Some focus on Rinna too, finally, though we won't see the answers 'til next week. Great snark from Tomari too.

Hi there! Lance here! I am also [ profile] lansupantsu, and I've enjoyed jumping into conversations about what is coming down the road for us in the future (pun so intended).

So this post is fair game of the Wild Mass Guessing variety. Solid and crack theories are totally welcome.

Overall: Pretty solid start. It didn't completely explain everything, but that's a good thing. After all, how much did we know about the other Riders after their first arc? Tomari seems to be settling in to using Drive as an extension of his police duties instead of playing the straight hero angle. Which is kind of an important distinction. Other Riders sometimes only have their toys to fall back on in a pinch (compare how quickly Haruto transforms compared to Shotaro or Eiji). Tomari has lots of other tools at his disposal.

I'm glad to see the "getting his brain in gear" thing get downplayed a bit as he settles in too. The tie-tightening will probably be as much a part of him as Shotaro's wrist flick but we won't always have the moment of lighting a fire under his ass we did in the first couple.

Ep 3&4: HOT WHEELS IN LOVE I'M SOLD AUGH. /cough/ Okay that's out of the way. So I think what has hooked me on this show and Tomari as our hero is the interrogation scene. There is no Good Cop, Bad Cop here. It's straight up "You done fucked up" cop. So far, I'm totally in.

Gonna put most of my stuff about what's coming under a cut because not everyone has been following the latest speculations:
All we need is Drive - Moderate W spoilers in here too )

Episodes 20-21
"The Nega-World's Dark Riders" | "The Walking All-Rider Album"

What? Character background?!
Spoilers make Kamen Riders cry. Except on Spoiler World, where Kamen Rider Spoiler's Final Attack Ride form is as 'Spoiler Spoiler', a car with a spoiler. SPOILERS. )

Am I missing the real substance to this show? Or... does anyone disagree with my last statement? (I dare you.)

Kamen Rider Decade
Episode 19
"Journey's End"

I am almost lost for words, but hopefully you aren't.

Cuts often help prevent spoilage, but they still hurt, dangit. )

Key questions worth discussing:
  1. Who do you think is the scariest character in the world of tokusatsu, and why?
  2. What do you think of the general 'student must surpass the master' concept of passing down powers, skills or titles? Could you see yourself 'defeating' your teacher in order to earn something? Do you think anything is worth having to do that?

Episode 18
"Missing Hibiki"

Please, please tell me that this was a parody of Hibiki. I don't think I could handle a full series of that!

Agree? Disagree?

Episode 17
"Grandmother's Flavour"

What did people think?

The episode was somewhat anticlimactic to me.

This cut hides a spoiler! )

I'm particularly curious about what folks think of Tsukasa, as he seems to swing between being a dunce to actually being wise and clever. Bad writing, or a set-up for a disturbing twist at series' end?

Also, does anyone yet have any sort of explanation for how the main cast seem to know what world they're in, and a bit about the monsters they may be facing at the start of each arc? I still can't see that this has been explained anywhere...
