So Hellheim was Mars? And Ryuga's zipper is already a meme.

W callbacks, intended or not:
- the country's coat of arms is clearly a CJX belt
- Sento (as in Cent? 1/100?) escaped bad guys' lair a year prior, just like Philip
- Everything started 10 years prior, which would be roughly at the same time W's Begins' Night takes place.

Don't like the formulas, hair gimmick and bottle shaking - those scream "kids show" to me and that's not what Kamen Rider is good at; last time they wanted a kiddy-friendly show, sentai-like, they ended up creating Ghost. Was also thrown off when Chancellor arrived at the end of the episode and his introduction was cut in a very distracting way.

The show has potential, but the premiere wasn't too strong. Hopefully that girl reporter gets more screentime; I bet she'll be regular in Isurugi's bar.

That secret elevator inside a refrigerator is something every kid dreamt off. Why so small, tho? P

The kanji for Sento is literally "war rabbit."

Forgot to say this, but I like how Sento can use his powers out of suit. Always love me some out of suit action.

I'm not the first one to come up with it, but the first episode leaned into the "SCIENCE" angle so much I had to go with it.
My first thought was Jessie from Breaking Bad and the classic "yeah science, bitch!" Fits like a glove considering how cocky Sento is. But Build Nye is gold.

Post Episode Follow-Up~

-...Wow. Okay, the capitols having their own focuses was more or less a given, but focuses like economy? That threw me for a loop, I admit.

-So, the blast from Pandora's Box also changed the personalities of the people present as well? Fuck, no wonder Goatee Guy was such a sleazeball.

-I honestly think Sento was the Paradox Reenactor...The guy's hair reminds me of him from what we saw, but then again, would it make sense that the Gas people would also take him in as well to change him into a SMASH?

-See, guys?! Goatee Guy and Glasses Guy CAN'T be Nitrouge because he was watching the chase while they returned to their cars, right?! ...Gaaaah. T -T

Something else I picked up on almost immediately; the music sounds almost identical to Ultraman Geed's soundtrack, which in turn is already pretty similar to Akibaranger. Kenji Kawai being Kenji Kawai.

Just watched! Really enjoyed it! It was different compared to the other Rider first episodes I've watched, which was pretty refreshing.

Build's already Build, and collecting energies from Smash to make new powers... which he can also use out-of-suit! Transformation is brilliant.

I already like Sento more than Kouta, Takeru and Emu. Not that I disliked any of them, of course; but they were all more or less the same template, and Sento is a quirky, charming inventor with a cheeky side and a lovable ego. And I really enjoy his flair when transformed.

As for the other characters... a little hard to say on most of them. Misora only had a handful of lines, but oh well feet shots~ And she seems like she could be entertaining. Soichi feels like a good pseudo-mentor character already, and the bar/café/whatever set-up is nice. Ryuga has a lot of potential, and the dynamic between him and Sento was on-point. The Chancellor and his aide, and the reporter... also show promise.

The world-building and action were also great. The effects were fun, including that bike chase. Lots to love.

Bit surprised that he already has Lion Full Bottle, though... guess he just takes a while to chance upon LionCleaner as a Best Match.

As for the OP song, to refer back to the discussion at the end of the rumour thread... I dunno, feels more like something late 90s pop-group Steps would do than a proper club anthem. I'm not hugely into them but it's a pretty neat song. Hasn't topped Excite for me.

I'm really hoping Nitrouge is a new character and not either or the two guys of the Advanced Physics division...
Nitrogue will be the Chancellor and Bloodstark will be the aide. Calling it now.

Also, why did he chase down the fugitive guy? I felt like more exposition could've gone there.
Dukemon already answered this, but it's a good example of why I wait for subs (not trying to call you out or anything). I like to understand what's being said and what's going on, and not have to infer it.

I've been calling Chancellor Himuro "Japanese Tony Stark" since last night. It's mostly in the facial hair.

Feels a bit exposition-heavy but I like some of the stuff they're setting up.

also wondering how long before the budget overcomes them & effects more or less disappear.

That first episode was a lot of fun! Maybe a little (okay, a lot) heavy on the set-up, so I hope the next episode slows things down a little so we can react to everything and get to know the cast a little more. Plus I'm on the side that really likes the opening - I've listened to it a lot already.

Also, as someone who does a lot of physics and chemistry, I really liked the random equations everywhere. I actually got bored and labeled the ones from the Next Time image. Except I couldn't figure out one of them, whoops. I think it has to do something with electron density and going from a function of r' to a function of r? I feel like I've seen it before... Guess I'm not ready to be a Kamen Rider. (Ignore the terrible image quality.)

Finally got to see it and wow did it make a good first impression. I am curious what effect, if any, the box had on the rest of the world though. Like do the walls continue or just stop where the image shows?

Yeah, so as somewhere else told me too, he's Tsukasa again. Pleasant....

-You need to suspend your disbelief if you're going to watch Japanese children's television.
If a journalist taking a picture when she ought to be running for her life bothers you....oh boy what you would do with the early heisei shows....
I do suspend my disbelief when watching these but that doesn't mean I'm just gonna sit here and watch bad writing and enjoy it.


Definitely never judge a toku by its first episode. These shows take at least until episode 10, sometimes 20, to hit their strides.
I get you here but, I'm also not gonna think "Oh, it's episode 1; I better not have an opinion". Also, why should I dedicate a year to something that may annoy me further?

It'll be interesting to see how the upcoming crossover with Ex-Aid deals with a giant wall splitting Japan apart.

Build Premiere !!! Interesthing for the started.

Seems Sento is already Kamen Rider before the Premiere, and the Pandora Box created the SkyWalll which devived the Japan on Three Diferent factions.

That Journalist was looking for moe infor about the Kamen Rider, and used Smash energy for develoment new Power-ups is cool.

Henshin sequence was cool, and Chanceler show up with the Guardians and later Sento believed of the guy, the Bike Chase was amazing.

Nitroque show up in the final scene, and seems the war is about to started.

It's Coulomb's Law in integral form, for a charge distribution.

Also, the equation on the left can't be velocity in spherical coordinates; it has the wrong units. It's the square of the differential arc length in spherical coordinates.

That's a surprisingly common occurrence in Kamen Rider.
