Now, embuded with this strange power, it becomes his fate to fight demons.

Beyond the creation of the evil demons, what was the purpose of the ceremony on the day of the solar eclipse? And what does the hero’s future hold now that he has been fated to fight as Wizard?

Again, ◆M4ApJwbK/w has posted spoilers that ended up true.

Here's a translated post by him.
Tablets I wouldn't be surprised. Toei has some sort of Apple fascination with Nozama's and ANKH's Ipad's.

I suppose the next step is really integrating it into the series.

Kamen Rider: Keitai Sousakan


Last year rumors started around December

It was the presence of Let's Go Kamen Rider that caused me to start the thread. But now that we have whisperings for Fourze's successor, sure.

What's the percentage chance that that rumor is true?

Decent. As has been said, the guy the rumors come from has posted things that turned out to be true in the past.

Of course, since it is so early in production, it could be that the series will undergo a drastic change as time moves on.

Tablets and smartphones would be a logical progression from the space shuttle and astronomy themed Fourze. They could even use the excellent white color scheme again.

Hopefully they will continue the numbered progression and are kicking themselves for using 555 earlier.

That or we finally get the long awaited for sequel to Faiz that directly picks up with Takumi still on that hill after ten years.

If he's not dead yet.

First page is a good place to say this: take everything said here with a fistful of salt.

I don't think they'll go with white again. The Base States suit is distractingly filthy on occasion, something I usually don't notice with Rider suits. A smartphone-based season makes me think of the Faiz remake joke.

Man, it's already starting huh?

And to think we've already reached the half-way point in Fourze...

>_> Damn it, I like Fourze. Is it really that time of the year?

This is what happens when introductions take a quarter of the season (not complaining), you feel like Fourze hasn't been on that long.

We're still like two months off from the halfway point. Production just starts early, at least post production, you won't see any serious movement until summer.

...um, I meant by episode count (if Fourze continues the trend of being 50 eps long).

We're at ep 22, which is almost at the halfway point.

(unless, of course my math is completely off.....somehow)

Ah, yeah, cause there's still a good seven months or so as far as airings go. (though if they've kept that crazy lead in filming, they're probably already around episode 35 or so)

The only way I can see smart phone/tablets working as the changer would be something akin to the K-touch from Decade. It'd be pretty neat to be able to summon different powers from different apps.

I can't wait to see the various fake and real design pictures.
Some of the fake suits that pop out are pretty neat.

I can't tell you how many times i've hammered in the idea of 2012/2013 Kamen Rider being named

"Kamen Rider Go"

"Go" sounds like how the Japanese say "Five"

Then you have all the "Go" related puns

"Let's Go! Kamen Rider Go!"

I don't even know if it was intentional or not but my Fourze figuart sometimes looks dirty white.

I really like that though, it looks great. Just like the real Space Shuttles and Apollo rockets.
