[My apologies to anyone that saw this post before now. I had actually spent a good half hour writing it, and supposedly it saved it, so I’m not sure what happened. Hopefully this time, it will actually save my work so that you can see this post.]
Rumors have been circling the Japanese boards that Go-Kaiger villian and trumpeter Basco da Jorokia has somehow obtained three Grand Powers? So when did that happen?!
As the rumors have played out so far, it seem that by the time Basco shows up again (in Ep.31), that he will have somehow obtained the Grand Powers from Changeman, Flashman, and Maskman. It’s not been said when or how he obtained them, but we do know that Basco can use his trumpet to “call out” the Grand Powers from former senshi that have them. Someone has certainly been busy!
Anyway, keep in mind that this is just a rumor, though it would be interesting to see what someone like Basco would do with a Grand Power, other than trying to find the Greatest Treasure in the Universe. It’s not like he has his own giant robot to…. uh oh.

For reasons that don’t seem to entirely make sense, almost every aspect of Kamen Rider Fourze has been treated as a closely guarded secret. And no secret has proven to be bigger than the theme song. While we’ve been able to learn the title of the song, and we did manage to hear some of it during the preview that followed the OOO finale, no one knows who actually wrote or performed the song. It’s to the point now that Avex Rider Sound had a “guess the artist” competition, where you can go online and submit your guess for who you think the artist. It ended by the time I finished writing this post, but I included the link anyway.
While the artist hasn’t been confirmed yet, there is one guess that has been circling around the rumor mill:
JURIAN BEAT CRISIS, a.k.a. Juria Kawakami, who is currently signed to Avex Trax, has released 12 digital albums in the last year, and who released a self-titled physical album today (Sept. 1). And people on 2ch and HJU are so sure that it’s her, that they made the image above, comparing her picture to the silhouette in the advertisement. So, are they right, is JURAIN BEAT CRISIS the artist behind the theme, or are they wrong on this one? I guess we’ll find out soon.
