For anyone that watched Kamen Rider W, you understand it’s epicness. And it seems that epicness can’t be contained just to the series. So now we have two V-Cinema releases from the series: Kamen Rider Accel and Kamen Rider Eternal. They’ve each gotten their own direct release sequel, or in Eternal’s case pre-quel, and both are nearing their release dates. And of course, both have a ton of pics and scans for each. So let’s start off with Kamen Rider Accel’s sequel.
Kamen Rider W RETURNS!: Kamen Rider Accel
The main synopsis of this movie is Terui Ryu, a.k.a. KR Accel, has disappeared on assignment sometime after his marriage to Naruki Akiko. He shows up at a crime scene, working for the bad guys?! With a mysterious woman?!! And he might have shot Jin???!!!! What’s going on here?! Looks like it’s up to Phillip and Shotaro to solve the crime and count up some sins. Or is it?
Turn’s out that Ryu might still be working undercover to bust another crime syndicate trying to restart Gaia memory production. And to take out this new enemy, he’s going to need a new form. Kamen Rider Accel Booster!
Using the new Gaia memory Enhancer (not a new memory, a new device) he’s able to supercharge his Accel memory to make this new form. And one of the biggest perks seems to be the new-found ability to fly. Unless they decide to go with the same route they went with Kamen Rider DEN-O, this will probably be a one time thing. But I have a strong feeling that they will end up going that way with W. Anyway, that’s all I have on this movie, so onto the next!
Kamen Rider W RETURNS!: Kamen Rider Eternal
This movie is a mix between a preqeul and a sequel, as Miina, a super soldier with ESP played by Takahashi Rin (ShinkenPink of Shinkenger) recounts her experience with Daido (Eternal) as a hero(!) before he was corrupted into the state he was found in the Kamen Rider W FOREVER Movie. That’s right. Before the whole NEVER thing, he used his second chance at life for good. And that’s not the only surprise.
Kazu Jun returns representing Foundation X, and becomes Utopia Dopant in an “Evil vs. Evil” fight. This time Foundation X is sponsoring Quarks, the group responsible for Project NEVER.
It seems that throughout this movie, they will also meet various future members of NEVER, including Kyosui, the future Luna Dopant, and Reika, the future Heat Dopant.
Also introduced is the new Kamen Rider Eternal Red Flare form, a product of the T1 Eternal Memory. The full potential of Eternal is drawn out with the T2 Eternal Memory, whose form is actually called Blue Flare.
I don’t know about the new dopant, be sure to let you know soon.
Anyway, that’s it for now, be sure to let you know if anything else comes up, and I’ll try not to take over a week to report it.
