Sorry, I just meant does anyone know what they say in the special? Like, interesting info revealed.
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.

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.
It could be both actually (he flat out has the Foundation X logo on his forehead).

Isn't that X and the symbols surrouding supposed to be katakana for "kamen" or am I wrong about that?

It is, yeah. Other than メ being stylized it doesn't really fit.

That is crazy. I know ISSA has newfound popularity thanks to DA PUMP's U.S.A. song that became a weird viral hit over the summer, but it's ridiculous to think we could have had TM Revolution. I wonder if they decided to give him another song to do for the series or something.

As if the song didn't already remind me of a Gundam opening enough.

I just watched the 1st episode. I feel like
Tsukuyomi interacting with Sougo and telling him just made things worse. I feel like that should be addressed soon. I also hope future episodes try and explain Sougo wanting to be a king. There's a million more realistic ways for a college student to want to help people. Finally, I'm also curious if the show will address Build taking place in an alternate universe or if they're saving that for the movie.

Overall though, I did like this episode and the premise it's sets up. I do want to see if Sougo becomes the future self or if there's some twist to explain how the dopey dreamer becomes the douche everyone's trying to stop. I know it's just the first episode and after several of my favorite Rider series starting off slow, I know better than to judge the whole series by only one episode.

The show seems to be leaning towards this since everyone around Sougo who is not from the future tried to make him realize that he is clearly using this "I will become a king" story so he doesn't have to face reality.

Saw the first episode.

It was... interesting. The pacing was very weird and we've gotten almost no sense of personality from Tokiwa other than "I want to be a king." Not a good sign.

Well, that was alot of Den-O and Decade mixed together.
Overall pretty good start to the Last Heisei Rider series.

That girl reminds me alot of Hana from Den-oÖ..Please donít let her actress quit midway.

Good point.
The Build crossover takes place early on in the series itself (it's just Sento and Banjou and the latter is still using the normal Cross-Z suit).

And I was wrong about the X, it's just the katakana for "Mask" (Kamen).

What I don't get how traveling to Build's past even happens.
Shouldn't that world not even exist anymore? Or maybe they're going by the fact that Sento and Banjou still exist so their past still does?

What a premiere.

First, the obvious: it's trying to emulate Decade in its approach. Except here, it's setting it up better. The vision of a huge Rider battle already has a definite origin, namely future information, and it's already affecting the main characters and their decisions. It's even to the point where it may ultimately set up an ontological paradox, that their attempt to stop Sougo from becoming some evil ruler is actually causing him to become a ruler. But with him knowing his destiny, couldn't his attempts to stop it actually further it instead? After all, he wants to become a king loved by everyone (whatever that means for someone living in 2018 Japan), but rulers who force admiration are tyrants. Hmm...

Next, the monster setup. We get Another Build by a person contracting with an Imagin some sort of majin. So we're going back to the personal setup, but it's not immediately evident that it's going into personal problems or other approaches. What it does appear is that Sougo is going to beat those monsters, and if he's gaining power by doing so, that'd be his variant on Decade, oh and it also points to a future tyrant.

Wonderful to see Sento and Banjou again. Feels like I haven't seen them in a week. Their personalities work well with this, and it's going to be interesting to see how else it plays out between them and the time travelers.

Oh, and those devices to produce currency local to the time period is no doubt going to cause massive economic inflation.

Okay, so going back to this.


My only guess as to why they did this is because ISSA's experiencing a massive resurgence in popularity. His group, DA PUMP, was thought to be way past their prime but had a huge hit over the summer. ("U.S.A.", it was one of those "so lame it's cool" deals, inspired memes and challenges online) I'm guessing maybe Avex wanted him while he was in the limelight again.

ISSA is signed to Avex Trax, the label Rider uses for music, TM Revolution isn't. I'm guessing this was going to be a "it's an anniversary so we'll cross party lines to get someone really big" deal but when ISSA turned out to be really popular again, this seemed like the easier route.

The original link was removed, so here's an alternate:
