Kamen Rider Zi-O Discussion Thread: You're The Next Decade


Kamen Rider Zi-O
仮面ライダージオウ

The year is 2018. Kuuga started in 2000. Look, Toei's idea of counting what starts as an "anniversary" is highly flexible. Sogo Tokiwa is an ordinary student with an unknown future - that of a dictator who rules the world with the power of time itself. Then Tsukuyomi, Geiz and the Time Jackers come back, all hoping to affect his future with the power of the legendary Space-Time Driver. Now, harnessing the powers of all Kamen Riders across history, Zi-O begins his journey to become a king! But a good king or a bad king? All while having Kamen Rider literally written on his face.

Starring
Sou Okuno as Sogo Tokiwa
Gaku Oshida as Geiz Myokoin
Shieri Ohata as Tsukuyomi
Keisuke Watanabe as Wars
Rihito Itagaki as Uhr
Ayaka Konno as Hora
Kentaro Kanesaki as Schwartz
Katsuhisa Namase as Junichiro Tokiwa
Rikiya Koyama and Yohei Onishi as The Space-Time Driver

Theme Song
"Over 'Quartzer'" by Shuta Sueyoshi feat. ISSA

Episodes air at 9 AM JST. Do not discuss the episodes until they have finished airing or ask when the fansubs will come out. Have fun!

RIDER TIME! Kamen Rider~ Zi-O!
https://cytu.be/r/tokunmecha

That's the quickest I've seen the Edo set appear in a Kamen Rider series. It does feel like a mix of Den-O and Decade, but in a good way. The opening scene reminded me of the Rider War by the way of Thanos, and the action was pretty exciting. Nice effects, and the return to Build stuff was fun, even if we only left Build behind a week ago. OP was also really nice. Some great visual work to go with the song.

There's a lot to love here.

I had a good time watching.

I'm not even a little bit sorry.

It felt a lot was going on at one time, so I can't really talk much about it until I see subs. But Zi-O and Geiz's transformations are awesome, and seeing Geiz transform into his Ghost form at the last second led to a good cliffhanger.

Also we already got to see Sento and Banjo again, which is a plus.

Tsukuyomi just did more in one episode than most Rider female leads do in a whole season.


Not a bad start to Kamen Rider ThanosMcFly.

I never watched a Toku show as it was airing, but decided to this time, even though I wouldn't understand it.

I liked what I could see, although I obviously couldn't follow the plot much. The Build monster is even cooler in motion then it was in pics (seeing it open its mouth was creepy). I liked the henshin sequences.

I'm really excited to watch this again once its been subbed.

That was okay. Hard to judge a Rider show on the first episode. This one, in particular, was kind of a mess, but that can be the case sometimes with these shows. I like seeing Sento and Banjou again but I'm not quite sure how time works here in regard to Build though.

That was REALLY fun. I couldnít understand the dialogue because I barely know any Japanese, but it was still cool.

Sougo to me feels like a combination of Emu and Sento; heís cocky, yet still wants to save people, and is also meek and kind of a butt monkey.

Even though Build just ended, it was cool to see Sento and Ryuga again, at Cafe Nascita as well.

It also has a mystery to it as well; we donít know how Sougo became Ohma Zi-O, nor do we know who Woz is nor what connection he has to the main plot.

Based on the preview for next week, we may also see Rider fights with previous riders, as we saw Build and Cross-Z standing next to Zi-O and Geiz; hopefully will get fights with other ones as well.

Overall, I canít wait to see how this turns out.

That's a good point, do we know who's subbing it this year? Overtime would be the punny answer.

Overtime waits a little before declaring whether or not they do it. Even then some group in that circle will take it up.

Opening



It makes me think of some non rider/Toei projects like Ultraman or Rescue Force.

Great start. Looks like they are going all out with this show. They learned a lot through Decade and Gokaiger.

The statue in the future is probably to mislead everyone. It looks like something to honour heroes. Not something to showoff your power. The Future Zi-O is probably somebody else.

Having watched the show, I refuse to believe the statue. And Geiz-of-the-black strap, dickish enough to attack an unpowered man with a Majin, is going straight to the top of the list (with Woz right behind).

Also, yay on Miss Yomi using the Faiz phone to be useful. Don't think she'll be Ohma, though stranger things have happened...

Love the first episode from the jump!
I love the fact weíre seeing character development already.Tsukuyomi (I think thatís right) Wonder ing if Maybe Geitz is right, After shougo transform. Also, Shougo deciding that he isnít going to let his destiny be decided for him by anyone. The villains also come off as Threatening but not too unapproachable

I'm waiting until the subs are out, but that opening is fantastic. It's got all those frilly early Heisei-style shots in it, like the shot of the rippling video on top of the water. The song slaps, too.
