My Early Thoughts On The Kamen Rider Build Leaks
Recently new details for Kamen Rider Build have surfaced online, which reveals major plot details for the series.
The series will feature the main hero, Kamen Rider Build, who is a genius physicist.
The Build Driver will utilize two Full Bottles that are based on either animals or machines. By using the best combination of Full Bottles, Kamen Rider Build will be able to initiate an hissatsu attack. His base form will be using both the Rabbit and Tank bottles to become RabbitTank form. His catchphrase will be, ” Well, let’s start the experiment.”
The story begins with the Japanese archipelago being split into three sections by a huge wall called the “Sky Wall.” The wall is created by the mysterious object called the “Pandora Box,” which was discovered on Mars. In the capital city of Toto, Saito & Kita were born. Saito & Kita are two unidentified living organisms called “smash” who drives humanity into chaos. It is up to Kamen Rider Build to save the world from the “smash.”
Shogo Muto will be working on the screenplay and the series will be directed by Ryuta Tasaki. Ryuta Tasaki is known for working as the main director for most of the Heisei rider shows, but also has worked as the main director for various other projects such as Gamera the Brave and the live-action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon series in 2003.Hero CLub
Kamen Rider Build will debut on September 3 and the series will air every Sunday at 9 A.M. on TV Asahi.
As Kamen Rider EX-AID is ready to come to an end by late August (which is atypical considering that most Kamen Rider series after the Decade Meltdown end in late September). What's so sad is that EX-AID is dropping in TV ratings in contrast to last year's Kamen Rider Ghost. I find it upsetting considering that I do like Kamen Rider EX-AID. Sigh... I'm reminded of how much I like Go-Busters and it's got low ratings. But again isn't it that Internet TV is becoming more popular and that some people may choose to watch their shows later?
For the costume design, it looks like a repainted Kamen Rider W costume. Whoever is in charge of designs I wonder what in the world is he or she thinking? But I can't judge a series by its designs. Onward to plot - I think the idea of a Kamen Rider who's a genius physicist would be a great idea. So what's up with using both animals and machines for his motif? Hopefully this weird idea will find its way through like every other weird idea that worked well in the past.
I'm interested to see how this split Japanese archipelago will work its way. I hope this will try to find a way to return to darker and edgier Kamen Riders like those from the last decade. If not, I hope it will still turn out to be pretty good.
