Here's a translation of the text:
Fuuto, the windy city.
In the past, mysterious events frequently cropped up in this city.
Now, again, somebody has begun to maneuver in the shadows of the city...
However, Fuuto has those men!
"This city is my garden. I don't want anyone to cry here."
"Shoutarou, surely you mean we, not I?"
That's right! The two-in-one detective returns!
Seven years have passed in Fuuto, and the detectives' story picks up again.
This is not a film or television project.
It's a challenge on a brand-new stage.
This is a new story of "those men" in Fuuto after [the past events in] Fuuto.
It's an official continuation of Sanjo Riku's storytelling.
(It is not set in a parallel universe.)
Just what form does the detectives' activity take!?
Please await announcement of the official title and staff lineup in a follow-up report on July 3.
Well, to those of you who love the windy city.
The slogan is, of course,
"Now, count up your sins!"
So, it's not a TV show or movie. Stage show? Manga? (I will drag my wife to Japan if it's a stage show.)
Who would win in a race?
Kamen Rider Mach w/ Slowdown
Kamen Rider Accel w/ Trial Form
Kamen Rider Faiz w/ Axel Form
Kamen Rider Kabuto w/ Clock Up
Kamen Rider Kabuto w/ standard-issue Tendou Souji Godmoding
Which female character was the most shafted?
(If "someone else":)
Are you enjoying Kamen Rider Ex-Aid so far?

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.
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:

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