Kamen Rider Fourze Confirmed Episode Summaries!

How’s that for awesome fanart?

Next month is the start of Kamen Rider Fourze, and after months of speculation and rumors, we’re finally starting to get an idea of what the series will be like, and now we have confirmed episode summaries from the first two episodes of Kamen Rider Fourze, courtesy of Otona Fami (from Freesia of HJU):

Episode 1, Blue – Spring – Strange – Body. The episode title pattern seems to be consisting of 4 kanji characters written separately. Together, they do form a sentence. In this case, “Youth Transformation”

Gentaro is transferred into a new school and is put in Yuuki and Kengo’s class. The first thing he says is to become friends with everyone.

While the leader of the American Football club is suddenly attacked by the Orion Zodiart. Kengo, who is too weak to fight, decides to make a gamble and gives Gentaro the Fourze Driver along with some Astro Switches.

Episode 2, Eaves – Space – Upper – Class. Put it together and you get, “Space, First Class”

While fighting the Orion Zodiart, Gentaro tries to come up with various strategies to fight with. He finds out that he has to turn off the Zodiart Switch to defeat a Zodiart. Later, Gentaro is taken to outer space through the magical locker, Rabbit Hatch. Gentaro decides to protect his school and creates the Kamen Rider Club.

Not a bad entrance for a new Rider, can’t wait to see for myself!

Kamen Rider OOO Finale Summary: Mystery solved?…..

We’re officially down to the wire, folks. Only two episodes left in the series, and yet there’s more going on than anyone can keep up with. And now that we’re so close to the end, are we finally going to get the answers to the questions that we’ve been asking since the very beginning? Well, you can judge for youselves from these episode summaries:

Episode 47 – The Red Crack, Satisfaction, and Eiji’s Vessel
Dr. Maki wants Ankh to go berserk to end the world so plans to insert Core Medals inside Ankh. Eiji breaks Cores and try to prevent the devouring of humans. But Maki wants Eiji to go berserk as well and inserts Medals inside him as well.

When Maki prepares the final act, Ankh intervenes, but because of that his Core Medals are taken away, which is a threat to his existence. The injured and exhausted Eiji is found by Satonaka, she takes him to Kougami Foundation. Eiji develops a desire with power and Kougami prepares a lot of Cell Medals in front of him.

On the other hand, Hina tells Chiyoko about the relationship between Eiji, Ankh and Shingo. Chiyoko accepts the facts and encourages Hina. And because of that Hina decides to…?

Episode 48 – Kamen Rider OOO’s Final Episode
Uva regains all 9 of his Core Medals and is complete, the process of ending the world is starting. Maki wants Uva to go berserk and keeps on inserting Core Medals inside him. Uva gets annoyed and escape. Birth fights with the Complete Uva.

Eiji without any Medals, asks Kougami for help. Kougami hands Eiji the power to save the world, the King’s Core Medals (王が持っていたコアメダル). OOO appears in front of Birth, together with Ankh, they fight Uva. But Ankh does not tell the others that his Core Medals are slowly breaking…

So, what does all of this mean? Well, to sum it up as best as I can, 1.) we’ll finally learn secrets about the original OOO, the King from 800 years ago, 2.) somewhere around the end of the next episode, Maki will strip Eiji of all his Core Medals, including the PuToTyra cores, possibly reverting him back to a human, 3.) Uva will be the final “boss” in the series, though no word on what will happen to Maki just yet, and 4.) Ankh will fight alongside OOO/Eiji in the end, but it might cost him his life…

As for the King’s Core Medals, I don’t know what they are, there hasn’t been anything said about them, no images leaked showing what they could be, so we’ll just have to watch to find out.

And despite the direction the story seems to be taking, I really hope that it doesn’t end on a cliffhanger that won’t be resolved until the OOOxFourze Movie!

Toei Official YouTube Channel: Finally, legal Tokusatsu on YouTube! :P

Well, look whose finally catching up. Toei now has it’s own official YouTube channel, where they’ve been uploading random videos from all of your favorite tokusatsu tv shows, from Kamen Rider to Super Sentai to Metal Heroes, and thensome! And since they’re the ones uploading this content, it’s all “legal”, so no chance of them being removed anytime soon.

So far, this service is really only being aimed towards their Japanese audience, so every video is just in Japanese RAW, but at least ou can see them. The account has also been uploading Super Sentai and Kamen Rider movies, as well as Kamen Rider Net Movies, but so far those videos have only been available in Japan. So anyone outside of Japan is going to have to rely on other people uploading these videos onto YouTube. It sucks, I know, but at least you can watch episodes of other toku shows that never really made it onto YouTube before.

Here’s the link to their official YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/TOEIcojp

It’s not certain how long this will last, so go ahead and check this out now. Hopefully, they’ll expand this once they realize how many people outside of Japan are interested.

Eiji as Kamen Rider Birth: So who hasn’t been Birth yet?

This was taken from the OOO WONDERFUL movie, and as you can see, Eiji temporarily changes into Kamen Rider Birth!

In the movie Kamen Rider OOO THE MOVIE: WONDERFUL, Shogun, and 21 Core Medals, Eiji and the other are separated from each other when part of Tokyo is taken back to the Edo Period after Gara took the Core Medals they had, but Eiji was left with the BirthDriver, though I’m not sure why he had it in the first place.

There’s a lot of huge surprises in this movie, too bad most of us won’t be able to see any of it until about six months from now. 😦
