Go-Kaiger Ultra-Post: Haden Ni Ikuze! Until the last episode!

Yes, this is it, the long awaited Ultra-Post for Go-Kaiger (and so we’re clear, I don’t care if their isn’t a hyphen between the “Go” and “Kaiger”, that’s just the way I spell it), and the over-all theme of this post is “the beginning of the end”, because we’re down to the last two episodes, with the finale (Ep.51) on February 19th. And while the series may be ending, the franchise is still in full swing, with both a leading role in Superhero Taisen, and new Go-Kaiger toys being released along with the upcoming Go-Buster toy line (and yes, that’s the official spelling for the new series, you’re welcome). And of course, we still have about a months worth of news to cover in a single post, so let’s get to it!

First off, let’s go over the newest episode summaries for the last three episodes, where  they have an all-out battle with Zangyack!:

Episode 50: Title- Kessen no Hi (Day of the Great Battle) Airs- 2/12/12 Summary-

Zangyack is advancing their final plans, which includes an all out attack on the Gokaiger, and the ultimate destruction of Earth! It has been revealed that the Greatest Treasure in the Universe can, and must, be used to wipeout Zangyack’s Great Fleet, completely. The Gokaiger are hesistant to do so, wondering what their compensation would be.

Episode 51 (Final Episode): Title- Sayonara Uchuu Kaizoku (Goodbye Space Pirates) Airs- 2/19/12 Summary-

The Gokaiger engage in a life-or-death struggle against the Zangyack. What will the Gokaiger do with the Super Sentai’s 34 Great Powers? One after the other, strong enemies gather to stand in the Gokaiger’s way….

And we also have the title of the last two episodes, which are:

  • Episode 50: The Day of Battle
  • Episode 51: Farewell Space Pirates

And now for some new scans, which feature the final EPIC fight between Basco and Go-KaiRed, the Greatest Treasure in the Universe, the second Legend War, and much more!:

These scans below come from the first official Volume of the Go-Kaiger RangerKey Book:

 How is the book cover the smallest scan?

Anyway, This is book one, as there will be future volumes to come out with future RangerKey releases, such as these seen here:

Yep, those are SIX coming RangerKey sets, for Hurricanger, Boukenger, Dekaranger, Gekiranger, Kamen Rider OOO, and a 2nd set for Go-Buster, which features the 4th & 5th Go-Busters and the new BuddyRoid (which I will cover in a separate post).

Now let’s move on to some confirmed and rumored returning actor appearances for these last three episodes:

Yes, this already happened, but it’s so cool it’s just worth going over. for Ep.49 (The Greatest Trasure in the Universe, 2/5) we had a 5-in-1 tribute episode for SunVulcan, Changeman, Flashman, Maskman, and Fiveman. And for this tribute episodes, we had the following returning actors:

Takayuki Godai (Takayuki Hiba/Vul Eagle II), Kazuoki Takahashi (Shou Hayate/Change Gryphon), Kihachiro Uemura (Dai/Green Flash), Issei Hirota (Akira/Blue Mask), and Ryou Narushima (Remi Hoshikawa/Five Yellow).

For Ep.50 (The Day of The Deciding Battle, 2/12), we have:

Seiju Umon (credited under Aohisa Takayasu), who previously played Mammoth Ranger Goushi in Zyuranger, Louis Yamada LIII as Professor Shuichiro Amachi of Tensou Sentai Goseiger, and Kaoru Hirata as Yuka Yamazaki of Mahou Sentai Magiranger. Also, it looks like the kid from Ep.3 will be returning as well, for what reason is hard to say.

And confirmed to appear in the final episode (Ep.51 Farewell Space Pirates, 2/19):

Naoya Makoto, who played Tsuyoshi Kaijo/AkaRanger in Goranger, and who also appeared in the movie Go-Kaiger Goseiger Super Sentai 199 Heroes. And we also have…

Atsushi Harada, who played Shou Tatsumi/GoGreen of GoGoV. He confirmed his appearance in the episode via Twitter.

Other rumored appearances include Yumi Sugimoto, who played Miu Sutou/Go-OnSilver in Go-Onger, and Keiya Asakura, who played Yohei Hama/BlueTurbo in Turboranger.

And finally, we end this post with some news and info on Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan.

First, here’s a full trailer for the movie:

Next, we have a full summary for the movie:

The movie opens with the Gokai Galleon being attacked by Gavan’s ship. It’s a really nice scene that makes use of the added budget. Gai’s reaction when he realizes that it’s Gavan is priceless.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Gavan introduces himself and the Gokaigers protest that they were pretty much given the blessing of Dekaranger crew, but Gavan remains silent before kicking their five collective asses, arresting them, and delivering them to his superior.
Said superior turns out to be Zangyack in disguise, introduces Gavan Bootleg, and immediately tries to execute the pirates. Before they can, Gavan releases them and returns their changers. There’s a short-ish fight before the Gojyudrill makes its entrance and rescues the crew. Gavan, however, is captured and transported to the worst prison in the universe.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Back on the Galleon, Marvelous reveals that Gavan saved his life ten years ago, basically by giving him the courage to jump from a platform that was about to explode.
The stroll down memory lane is interrupted by Basco. He tells them about the space prison that Gavan is being held at, knowing that they’ll go off to rescue him and leave the Galleon unguarded. He leaves them alone to figure out how they’re going to get to the prison to rescue Gavan.
Daigorou Oume, Shiro Akebono This is interrupted when Gavan comes walking down a path while talking to a giant Panda. Gai is quick to point out that it’s not Gavan, but Battle Kenya. About five seconds later, Denji Blue walks over. Luka thinks they both look like Gavan, but Gai denies it. Still, they get the idea to use the Battle Kenya and Denji Blue keys to open up a doorway to the space prison where Gavan is being held.
Once they break into the prison, they come across Jealoushito and some of the previous Super Sentai enemies. Having been in prison for awhile, they are a kind of horny and begin to lay flattery on Joe, Luka, Don, and Ahim.
Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters Back on Earth, Basco is about to get aboard the unguarded Gokai Galleon, but is stopped by the Go-Busters team. He thinks they’re impostors, but they tell him that they’re the 36th and newest Super Sentai team, the Go-Busters. They fight Basco to a stalemate, but since Sally was distracted, they’re able to get the upper hand.
In the space prison, the Gokaigers free the inmates after encountering a large group of Gormin. Gai and Joe hold them off while the others go off to find Gavan, who is being tortured by Gavan Bootleg. The Zangyack use the portal technology to stall them.
Don Dogoier with Kaze no Shizuka and Kegaleshia Thanks to the portals, doors in the space prison now lead to other places in the universe. Luka and Doc wind up in Europe fighting an army made up of the family of the Big Brother/Little Brother Zangyak. Ahim winds up fighting another Zangyak general near an ocean.
Marvelous alone makes it through to the room where Gavan is being held. He fights Gavan bootleg and, using a ricochet technique that really need to be seen to be believed, frees Gavan, reversing the roles they were in ten years ago.
The split up team then breaks reality by shooting out the ground beneath their respective feet, reunite in the basement of the space prison, and use a Silver Charged rising strike through the “portals” that takes out most of the Zangyack generals and returns everyone to Earth. It’s hard to convey just how awesome this was.
Gavan Bootleg Back on Earth, Gavan fights Gavan bootleg while the Gokaigers fight the Zangyack general. They use an all pink change, an all white change, and an all red change. Gavan bootleg is destroyed after being stabbed and sliced in half while an exploded car burns in the background.
Once the Zangyack general is defeated, he grows in size and has telekentic powers that he uses to shuffle buildings into GoJyuGokaiOh. Machfalcon joins the party and forms Kanzen GokaiOh, which then surfs around on the back of Gavan’s dragon.
Even THAT isn’t quite enough to put away the general, so Marvelous and Gavan do a combined Final Wave attack while standing on the head of the dragon (that is also carrying Kanzen GokaiOh). The combined Final Wave and GokaiOh attacks finally put away the general.
Gokaiger vs Gavan Film Major Update Afterwards, Gavan tells Marvelous that he’s happy to see what he’s become. Not just a pirate, but a good man. The former Battle Kenya and Denji Blue meet up with the crew. The Gokaigers return their respective keys to them and all transform. We see Gavan pose with Denji Blue and Battle Kenya while Gai flips out and asks for their autographs.

And for some very exciting news: it debuted at #2 at the Box Office, bringing in 159,227 people and grossing 160,750,000 Yen (2.06 million USD) in it’s opening weekend. So Congrats to them on that!

And with that, this post is finally finished! Do I expect this to be one of the last posts I do for Go-Kaiger? Not by a long shot! Especially since there’s still two episodes left, and they’ll also be in the upcoming Kamen Rider X Super Sentai: Superhero Taisen movie this Spring. Plus, they’re just too popular to completely let go of, so who knows what the future may bring for our beloved Space Pirates. But for now, just look forward to the finale!

Go-Kaiger show and Vs. Gavan movie Super Post: It’s going to be Legend…wait for it…

…Dary! Surprisingly, not a lot of big news for Go-Kaiger from this past week, but there’s still some interesting news for the movie Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan, and we have new episode summaries for the next two episodes. It’s Don Dogoier the Legendary Hero vs. Damaras, the Strongest Man in Space!

First, here’s the episode summaries for this last episode and the next two (keep in mind that these came out yesterday before anyone saw the episode):

Episode 42: The Strongest Man in Space – 12/11 script: Naruhisa Arakawa / director: Hiroyuki Kato Doc dreads facing enemies and hates fighting. Luka is flabbergasted that he thinks the Zangyack might change their ways. In this fight the enemy targets Doc first. But, instead of facing them, he turns and runs away. Joe bluntly calls him pathetic.

Every time Doc fights now he gets less manly and more uncool. Ahim finds an old magazine with an article about the legendary hero Don Dogoier, looking heroic and brave. He looks just like Doc, so she suspects that they are the same person.

Episode 43: Becoming the Legendary Hero – 12/18 script: Naruhisa Arakawa / director: Hiroyuki Kato Damaras, the strongest man in space, combines forces with Basco and attacks Marvelous and his crew. They don’t see Doc but kidnap the others. Afterward, Doc finally stands up and pursues the enemy.

Episode 44: N/A (12/25) script: Junko Koumura / director: Taro Sakamoto Gai brings a Christmas tree onto the Galleon. The others don’t know about Christmas, so they think the dazzling ornaments are strange. After they learn about Christmas from a picture book, they decide to have a party on the Galleon.

Gai and Luka go out shopping for the party. While they’re out, they meet a group of children decorating for Christmas, including young Sayo. But then the Zangyack appear….

Everybody gets a Christmas episode! And other rumors have the Kakuranger tribute episode after these, which includes the return of Ninjaman!

Anyway, onto movie news!

First, we have this pic from the wrap-up party for the Go-Kaiger Vs. Gavan filming:

Here’s the full Go-Kaiger crew, along with Hosogai Kei who plays Basco da Jorokia, and Ohba Kenji, who reprised all three of his famous toku roles in the movie. The movie comes out January 21st with Blu-Ray/DVD release on March 21st (wow, only a two month turn around; unusual, but wholeheartedly welcomed!).

And we now know what the theme song for the movie will be! And it is (drumroll please)…

…”JUMP!” by Kushida Akira and Matsubara Tsuyoshi! Just like the movie is a crossover between the Super Sentai and Metal Heroes series, the song is a collaboration between Kushida, who sung the Gavan theme song, and Matsubara, who sung the Go-Kaiger theme song. “JUMP!” will be released January 25th.

And that’s everything related to Go-Kaiger, for now. If anything else pops up, I’ll let you know!

Go-Kaiger December Episode Summaries: The Hero Finally Rises!

Alright, new episode summaries are up for Go-Kaiger for this month, and this month we’ll get to see Ahim in action, Don’s heroic side, and their own little Christmas episode. Let’s make this Christmas-y!:

Episode 41: What I Don’t Want to Lose – 12/4
Aboard the Gigant Horse, the Emperor’s Elite Guards appear, heralding the arrival of the leader of the Zangyack Fleet, Emperor Akudos Gil, on Earth. With the express mission of defeating the Gokaiger, the Elite Guard Zatsurigu departs.

While Joe, Gai, and Aihm are out and about, they encounter Zatsurigu. When Aihm sees him, she looses her usually calm composure, entering into a violent fight with the monster.
What is the connection between Ahim and Zatsurigu? Don’t miss it!

Episode 42: The Strongest Man in the Universe – 12/11
To defeat the Gokaiger, Damaras finally makes comes to Earth, personally.

At the same time, Aihm stumbles upon a magazine article that talks about the “Hero, Don Doggoier”, and how he had gone missing. “Huh?! Hakase is a Legendary Hero?!” Could Hakase’s memory really have been lost? The Gokaiger try and see if eating delicious food will cause Hakase to remember something.

Then Damaras appears, with Basco as his right hand man, calling out Marvelous and the others. The Gokaiger’s Greatest Pinch is here!

Episode 43: To the Legendary Hero – 12/18
With little effort, Damaras effectively attacks the Gokaiger and beats all but Hakase, who is now aboard the GokaiGalleon alone.

Marvelous is taken captive, sentenced to a public execution in front of the people of Earth, as an example. “Alone…it’s impossible” is what Hakase mutters, about to give up…

What was the reason behind Hakase becoming a pirate? How can he defeat Damaras all by himself? The fight is about to Heat Up! Everyone, they need your support, we’re counting on you!

Episode 44: N/A – 12/25
Luka and Gai arrive at a place where children are decorating a Christmas Tree. There, Action Commander Bibaboo appears, and starts turning people into dolls! A boy they meet is also turned into a doll, and then Gai himself is turned into a doll, sacrificing himself in place of a young woman!

Left alone to fight, what is Luka to do? Can Gai and the others be returned to normal? “Protect Everyone’s Christmas!” Don’t miss it!

Fourze Scans and Episode Summaries: Even in Japan, people have started celebrating Christmas WAY too early.

New episode summaries are up for December, and it looks like the KRC is celebrating Christmas in style at the Rabbit Hutch. And it looks like we might be getting a surprise after the 13th Episode, we may be getting a big surprise!

Wanna bet it’s got something to do with him?

Anyway, here’s the rather sparse episode summaries:

Episode 14: N/A – 12/11 Scorpio Zodiart stabs Gentaro with its stinger. Gentaro is on the verge of dying.
Episode 15: N/A – 12/18 The Glee Club invites Yuuki to sing Christmas carols and a kindergarten.
Episode 16: N/A – 12/25 Yuki shows up with her Hayabusa suit and is popular with the kids.

And I’m guessing that this is from the MEGAMAX movie? This is the Medal Switch Driver, which brings out the power of the Core Medals and the Astro Switches. What kind of powers does it possess after combining modern science and alchemy? Probably one that will cause many explosions.

Go-Kaiger Scans and Episode Summaries: Rise of the Dragon Slayer?

Yay! More new scans! This time, we have scans from upcoming episodes of Go-Kaiger, as well as some new episode summaries, and it looks like we’re going into two characters’ backstories. Meet the Princess and the Dragon Slayer!

Next week’s episode of Go-Kaiger, Ep.41, “Something I Don’t Want to Lose”,  Emperor Ackdos Gil enters the battlefield, setting after the Go-Kaigers for the death of his son. And along with him are two of his guards (seen above), Imperial Guards Dyrando ans Zatslig. After imprisoning Damaras for not protecting the Prince in battle, Zatslig, with a reputation for destroying whole worlds, goes on the attack. And Ahim is the one that goes after him, because Zatslig is the one who destroyed her home world of Famille and killed her parents, the King and Queen shown in the first scan, and saying that she has a grudge against him would be an understatement. We’ll also learn how she met Marvelous and why she became a Pirate.

And this scan come from the episode after, Ep.42, “The Strongest Man in Space”. In it, Ahim uncovers reports that would suggest that Don Dogoier/Hakase may have been a legendary warrior, known for slaying many dragons on many worlds. But Don has no memories of doing any of it. So, is he a great Dragon Slayer, or was he just an intergalatic cosplayer?

And this final scan reveals that the RangerKey toy line will continue into next year (2012), and that there will be a new toy to use with them. No word yet on which teams or senshi the new RangerKeys will be based on.

And that should be it for Go-Kaiger series stuff. Hopefully, we’ll get a glimpse of that new toy sometime soon.

-M.C., the Quantum Twin

Question for you: Any ideas on what the new RangerKey toy will be?

Fourze Episode Summaries: Kengo left on the Moon?!

Fourze will be on break this weekend, so in the mean time, we’ll just go over some new episode summaries that recently popped up, and it looks like the episodes after 10 will mostly be about Kengo and Yuki. Read on to see what I mean:

Episode 10: Clash in the Moonlight – 11/13
Tomoko is participating in the witches’ ritual called “Farewell to this  Planet” to become the Lunar Witch. And it is there where Gentaro found her…

Episode 11: N/A – 11/20
The locker used by the Kamen Rider Club as a transportation device to travel to  Rabbit Hutch on the Moon has been salvaged as trash, and now Kengo is  alone on the Moon!?

Episode 12: N/A – 11/27
Yuki wants to meet the original astronaut from NASA, who is also Amanogawa High School’s principal, Mitsuaki Gabou, the Red-Eyed Man.

Wait, that guy’s a former NASA Astronaut? Well that explains the suit, and the lunar lander. So what’s his connection to all of this then? And why was the locker trashed? Did they figure out it was a portal to the rabbit hutch? I guess we’ll just have to wait a little onger than usual to find out.

Go-Kaiger November Episode Summaries and Future Tribute Episode Rumors.

Well, now that the Go-Onger tribute is out of the way, we can now look forward to an upcoming major battle for the Pirates. It’s robot vs. robot, and the action just keeps on coming! Check out the latest episode summaries:

Episode 37: The Strongest Decisive Battle Machine – 11/6/11
Barizorg appeared on Earth, commanding troops composed of Gormin, Sugormin, and the Emperor’s personal bodyguards, the Dogormin! Their plan is an attack on the GokaiGalleon…

Joe, becoming GokaiBlue, fights Barizorg, while the other Gokaiger take on the Dogormin. However, Walz Gil appears at the battle… Furthermore, the Strongest Decisive Battle Machine, Great Walz, flies out from the Gigant Horse. In the Gokaiger’s greatest pinch Marvelous is….

Episode 38: The Power to Sieze Dreams – 11/13/11
Having toppled the Gokaiger, Walz Gil begins his Complete Invasion plan. This time, will the Earth become just another possession of Zangyack? What is the fate of Joe and Barizorg’s connection? And Marvelous is….? Stand up, Young Space Pirates! Defeat Wals Gil with your strong, burning bonds!

Side note: Marvelous is surrounded by ??? in the 37 to 38 summaries, because he is going to have a dream talk with one AkaRed.

Episode 39: N/A – 11/20/11
Because of Navi’s Otakara Navigate, the Gokaiger head to Moroboshi High School. Gai informs the others that Moroboshi High is the school that the Denji Sentai Megaranger attended. However, it has been more than 10 years since they were here.

Even if they go there now, is there any chance of meeting the Megaranger? Date Kenta, the former MegaRed, appears in this Legend episode! Do Marvelous and the others…change uniforms with 6 students?! The monsters Moririn and Dororin appear…

Episode 40: N/A – 11/27/11
From beyond space and time, from the future of the 31st century, a Video Letter reaches the Gokaiger. The Sender? Timeranger’s TimeYellow, Domon. He informs the Gokaiger they must time travel back to “October 2, 2010 A.D.” If they go there, a certain great power may be able to be attained…. Pay attention to this episode full of surprises!

Side Note: It is confirmed that Agent no Metal Alice, Short no ZanKT 0, and Hone no Shitari appear in episode 40. Not only will this episode serve as an explanation for the Gokaiger’s appearance in the previous VS movie, but it will also probably be the first chronological appearance of Matrintis (ZanKT 0 being a prototype for the ZanKT Matroids), and maybe explain some stuff about Chimatsuri no Buredoran!

And we also have rumors on future episodes, this time dealing with Bioman, Fiveman, and possibly JAKQ tribute episodes:

Battle Fever and Denjiman’s powers are more than likely being saved for the Gavan movie, while Kakuranger’s tribute ep will follow the ep with Marvelous’ public execution. There’s rumors that the Kakurangers are involved in his escape (episode 43-44).

Episode 45 is titled “Resurrection Balzion” (TBA).  It involves Ackdos Gil creating a new Balzion and sending it to Earth to  challenge KanzenGokaiOh. The Gokaiger require Bioman’s Ultimate Power  to fight the Anti-Bio Particles.

Gou Shirou, former RedOne, shows up to train the Gokaiger and give them the Bioman’s power. BioHunter Silva will not appear, because his voice actor, Hayashi Kazuo,  was unavailable. Instead, Action Commander AquaMesser will pilot  Balzion.

Episode 46 is the would be Fiveman tribute episode, whether or not Basco has stolen this power is unknown. If Basco ends up as the final villain, the Emperor may not be around for too long.

According to rumors it seems there might be a JAKQ episode in there somewhere as well, apparently has Ackdos Gil reviving Atomic Witch, a former enemy of JAKQ. Bamba Soukichi, former Big One, appears on Sky Ace to help the Gokaiger.

Meanwhile, Luka looses her Ranger Key in the episode, making the rangers unable to use Big Bomber. The JAKQ Covack is ineffective. The episode will be a Luka focus.

And now, straight from the rumor mill, literally appearing while I was typing this, are some new rumors for the possible ending of Go-Kaiger. Not what you want to think about, I know, but it will eventually happen. Anyway, here’s the rumors on the possible Second Legend War:

Episode 48: The Decisive Battle of the Blue Sky
The Gokaiger pull out every trump card they can think of, but they cannot beat Ackdos Gil. The Emperor summons his forces to Earth, and starts a full scale attack.

Seeing the numbers they face, the Gokaiger loose heart, especially since the Ranger Keys had returned to their rightful owners. Just then, Akaranger, Kaijou Tsuyoshi, appears!

Episode 49: The Emperor, Dies
The Gokaiger are joined by the 34 Super Sentai with Akaranger, and regain their will to fight. The Second Legend War begins, and the battle goes to the Super Sentai. The Emperor is betrayed by Damaras, who kills him.

Episode (Finale): The Greatest Universal Treasure
Damaras, who had killed Akudos Gil, makes himself the new Zangyack Emperor, and declares war on the Super Sentai. Damaras descends to Earth, giving the Gokaiger a lot of trouble with his tremendous power.

The Gokaiger beat Damaras with a combination of the GalleonBuster and the Legend Dream, Damaras having been away from battle so long wasn’t up to the challenge. Just what is the Greatest Universal Treasure?!

A second Legend War? Damaras as Emperor? And will the combined efforts of all 35 Super Sentais be enough to save the world?!! We’ll have to see how this turns.

Go-Kaiger Episode Rumors: Don’s Backstory, and Marvelous to be Executed?! Quick, someone call in an emergency Ninja rescue!

While rumors about Don’s/Hakase’s backstory have been flying around for a while, it looks like we may actually be close to figuring out who Don Dogoier actually is. And according to these new rumors, we should find out soon!

(Keep in mind that these are just rumors, and that nothing here is certain until it can be verified.)

In episode 42, his background will be revealed. It seems that Hakase is actually a legendary hero that lost his memory (circumstances unknown). Damaras, recently imprisoned for allowing Walz Gil to be killed, has been set free so that he may seek revenge for the death of Walz Gil. With Basco’s help, he is able to capture Marvelous and defeat Joe, Luka, Ahim, and Gai, causing them to suddenly disappear, leaving Don behind.

And in episode 43, the Emperor, Ackdos Gil, plans a public execution on earth for Marvelous(!). And Basco alludes to obtaining the Fiveman and SunVulcan grand powers, meaing that (at this point in the story) there is only one Grand Power left, the Kakurangers’ (which could mean that it would turn out to be a tribute episode).

If any of these, or any of the other rumors turned out to be true, then the series will take a definite dark turn in the episodes to come.

Fourze Episodes and MEGAMAX Updates: Witches, Stalkers, Legends, and Evil Organizations. And all of that before Noon.

We’ve got a lot of BIG updates for both Fourze and for the Movie Wars MEGAMAX. There’s so much news here that I’m not sure if we can really fit it all into a single post. But darn it all, we’re gonna try!

First, we have a bunch of new pics from the upcoming movie:

Next, we have a super-long synopsis of the movie from JEFusion:

Unlike the previous Movie Wars, this one is not split up in three parts that have separate plots. Instead, it’s split up in 5 parts. Starting with a Prologue → OOO → Bridge → Fourze and it’s all connected at the end of the MEGAMAX part. The Seven Legendary Riders appeared to stop Foundation X.

The previous Riders exists as urban legends in Fourze’s story, but in actuality they do exist. As they used to fight against evil in the shadows. The enemy this time uses inventions based around Gaia Memories, Core Medals and Switches in order to start a special plan.

Fourze’s setting is at the school festival. As Gentaro is writing a report on the urban legends called Kamen Rider, a group of star dust soldiers called Dustard, a play on the words “star dust.”

Also appearing in the movie is Kamen Rider Nadeshiko, the mysterious female high school student who could also be called “Female Fourze”. Her head resembles a jifuu cat and her belt is tilted. She uses a Double Rocket Punch alongside Fourze!

Kamen Rider OOO’s part is set after the final episode. Eiji has been traveling around the world, but the Foundation tells him to come back. A meteorite crashes and causes a distortion in time. This distortion brings along a man by the name of Miharu Minato.

He uses a mysterious belt along with 3 mysterious Medals and transforms into Kamen Rider Poseidon! The Ride Vender troops are defeated by this new Rider and he aims for Birth and OOO! He’s a complete mystery, but he seems to be somehow connected to Kougami.

The dead Ankh appears! How did he return?! Date, Hina, Goto, Kougami and Satonaka all appear too.

My only question: How the heck will they be able to tie all of that together, even with five parts to the movie?

Next up, we have some Fourze episode info, and it looks like the focus on the next two episodes will be around Nozoma Tomoko, the mysterious and somewhat creepy goth girl we keep running into. And does Yuki have a stalker? Read below to see:

Episode 9: Awakening of the Witch
Gentaro tries to be friends with Tomoko, but she says she doesn’t need one. Furthermore, Tomoko, Ritsuko (3rd year student) and 2 others use magic to revenge themselves on those who despise themselves. A Zodiarts is also behind this…

Episode 10: N/A – 11/06
Even Tomoko transformed into the Zodiarts after Ritsuko. To save her, Gentaro takes her to the moon.

Ritsuko will be played by Kajiwara Hikari, who previously played Amane on Kamen Rider Blade. As part of this witch cult, both Ritsuko and Tomoko will change into the Ara Zodiart, which has pyrokinetic powers, and is almost too hot for Fourze to handle (literally). Will Fourze use his new Fire State to fight fire with fire?

And in looks like in the next few episodes, Yuki will get a stalker, that also happens to be a Switcher. So who is this stalker, and what are they after?

And she also has a run-in with the mysterious Red-Eyed Man, whose real name is Gabou Mitsuaki, the principal of Amanogawa High. Why did he call Yuki into his office? Does he know that she’s connected to Fourze?

And as a final bit of pure speculation, KamenRiderKira of HJU pointed out that Class 2B’s Homeroom Teacher, Sonada Sarina’s name can be rearranged to form the words “Sasori nanonada”, which generally translates as “is a scorpion”. Does this mean that the seemingly kind and innocent Ms. Sonada is really the mysterious and malevolent Scorpio Zodiart? Who knows, we’ll just have to see how the story plays out.

And that should be it for Fourze-related news for the time being. If anything else pops up, well you know the rest. 😉
