Makes sense, though I hope future Rider cameos aren't as short as Sento and Banjou's were this episode (unless they're returning next week as well in which case nevermind).
They will be back next week. 2 eps for most Heisei seadon tributes.

There are no coincidences in Rider designs.

Probably not, but it could just be a design homage rather than explicit foreshadowing. At this stage it's too early to tell.
Then again, Toei does love bringing back Shocker so I wouldn't be surprised if they wind up appearing again at some point.

I would be very shocked (Pun not intended) if they didn't appear at some point. Toei never needs an excuse to cram them in where they're not welcome.

After the subs I'm calling it a pretty solid start to something that can become really interesting later on. But when I watched the stream first, I focused more on technical aspects and two things really bothered me:

- since when dinosaurs sound like elephants, c'mon Toei, you'va already done at least 3 dinosaur-themed shows. And that saliva was definitely way to gooey
- Zi-O standby noise was cut too early

Anyway, I was also wondering if show takes place in Japan, shouldn't he aspire to become emperor instead? I mean that would at least make him less absent-minded.

So apparently some special where the characters talk about the meanings for their names? Anyone got any info on that?
It's a bit unclear, but if you're asking where to find it, OT has the RAW up on their blog.

I'd like Foudation (from W) to come back too. They didn't get a good finale and Zi-O would be perfect for that for being the last Neo-Heisei/first whatever they call the next era.

Just saw the subbed version. I think the show will be good, but Geiz is definitely the hero. Zi-O is literally trying to become a dictator. there are no good "Overlords", so I'm sure the show will be about him realizing that its stupid to think that way, but I have the feeling that Zi-O is going to be super obnoxious and stupid for a good portion of the show. But the premise is good, and the past Rider stuff and monsters should be cool. I just wish Zi-O wasn't an idiot who wanted to be a dictator and was actually fighting to change the future, instead of being a delusional idiot.

The Emperor of Japan is more of a lineage. While the whole time (according to OT subs), Sougo wants to be A king, so it's less about being the King (Emperor) of Japan but a King of anywhere or anything.

And I can almost guarantee TV-Nihon will sub it, they've done the specials for other recent shows.

Most Japanese fiction avoids mentioning the royal family. The only times I've seen the emperor acknowledged were some Shinsengumi related shows, where it's pretty much necessary due to historical events, some Sengoku era ones (but with fictional emperors) and ancient, basically mythical past - but even so it's pretty rare.

That's why he aspires to be "king" rather than "emperor" even though the whole "new era" idea behind the show (like referenced in the narration) is clearly a reference to a new emperor.

Also that'd be like making a show in America and complaining that someone wants to be king. You wanna tell all the little girls dreaming of being princesses that the best they can hope for is to be President?

Hopefully past opening will be referenced. Mostly because Be the zone playing one Sento and Ryuga regain their memories sounds awesome.

If the girl was 18 and said she still wanted to a princess or using "Queen" in unironic sense, then it would be weird.

I'm only saying his personality doesn't match his motivation. If he was more like Aoyoma/Naval Laser from My Hero Academia, I can see him pulling it off. Hell, everyone in his era finds it weird too, which kinda minimizes but not by much.

Has anyone notice that at the end segment where they show all the Past RIder's Ridewatch, only Decade's is missing?

That's a pretty good hint that his part of the story in ZI O is going to be more than the usual (if you hadn't seen the toy catalogue already)

Not really. My Japanese is limited but, the main thing was them asking what the hell is "Geiz" and Woz is trying to explain what it means and they chide him because it should be "Gates". But "Geiz" sounds better.

It's literally just all a gimmick. Toei doesn't actually care about it being the final Heisei era series. I mean they literally have back to back team up movies called "Heisei Generations FINAL" and "Heisei Generations FOREVER"

CAUSE IF YOU GOTTA GIMMICK! TOEI GIRL YOU'VE GOT IT MADE!
https://d12edgf4lwbh8j.cloudfront.ne...image/all1.gif

I mean, in fairness, they named the movie before the era changeover actually had a date. The working assumption was it would be within the next year, not the year after that. By the time it was revealed to be in 2019, it was too late for Toei to do anything. Timing was their enemy for this; it was either wait too long and delay the movie waiting for an actual date on the change of era or name the movie and hope for the best.
