My Thoughts On Kamen Rider EX-AID's Final TV Episode And I'm Waiting For Kamen Rider Build

Kamen Rider EX-AID ended with only 45 TV episodes which reminded me of Gavan's 44 episode run. I feel disappointed since the show does have some potential material to explore like the father/son conflict of Masamune Dan with his son Kuroto Dan. There could have been more materials to explore but I felt WTF... why did it end so soon? They could have expanded the super cool Kamen Rider Cronus storyline if they went with the 50 episode format. But I guess Kiddie Show Sunday errr Super Hero Time is already making adjustments hence it had to end. Though I could also talk about a couple of complaints that I have about the show.

For one, Kuroto Dan's death and revival as a Bugster really had me mixed with what the writers did. I may write more about this one since I think this is a case of Kamen Rider injustice. Personally, I thought the father/son conflict should have ended up as a three-way conflict between the the hospital staff, Kamen Rider Gemn and Kamen Rider Cronus. I thought…

Chinese Song "On The Other Side Of The Water"

I was fascinated by this song several times. Here's the meaning of this sweet romantic song to those who want to understand it such as myself:

綠草蒼蒼 白霧茫茫
(lu cao cang cang, bai wu mang mang)
Deep green grass, endless white fog
有位佳人 在水一方
(you wei jia ren, zai shui yi fang)
A beautiful lady is on the other side of the water
綠草萋萋 白霧迷離
(lu cao qi qi, bai wu mi li)
Green grass thinning out, white fog getting blurry
有位佳人 靠水而居
(you wei jia ren, kao shui er ju)
A beautiful lady lives by the waterside.

我願逆流而上 依偎在她身旁
(wo yuan ni liu er shang, yi wei zai ta shen pang)
I am willing to go against the current, cuddling next to her
無奈前有險灘 道路又遠又長
(wu nai qian you xian tan, dao lu you yuan you chang)
Pity that there are rapid beaches, and paths far and long
我願順流而下 找尋她的方向
(wo yuan shun liu er xia, zhao xun ta de fang xiang)
I am willing to go downstream to pursue her direction
卻見依稀仿佛 她在水的中央
(que jian yi xi fang fu, ta zai shui de zhong yang)
As if vaguely seeing her stand in the middle of the water

我願逆流而上 與她輕言細語
(wo yuan ni…

My Early Impressions Of Kamen Rider Build's Main Cast Of Characters

After updating my celebrities blog, I thought I'd give this blog another entry. I know it's been quite vacant for some time but I'll give another reaction. It's no secret that I prefer new school Kamen Rider over the Showa era so I can say I'm excited for what Kamen Rider Build will bring. I'll put the descriptions from Tokusatsu News Network in italics while I present my views on the main cast of characters.

Atsuhiko Inukai as Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build the main protagonist

The protagonist, a genius physicist with phenomenal mental and physical abilities. Sento is taken in by the owner of the café “nascita” after collapsing in front of him and losing his memories. He now lives in a secret base within the café’s basement. He transforms into Kamen Rider Build using the Build Driver and Full Bottles to protect the people of Touto but neither the government nor the police know Build’s identity. On recommendation of nascita’s owner, Build joins the Touto Institut…
