Kamen Rider Fourze Rumors: Riding an Apollo Rocket across the Zodiac, and other strange things from the 70’s.

So far, we’ve seen two new states, a new Rider, and a lot more about Fourze over the last couple of days. And now we have some new rumors involving more new states, and the Zodiart hierarchy. Time to take off!:

  • Switch 40 is Apollo Switch, hence Kamen Rider Fourze Apollo States as Final Form.
  • The strongest Zodiarts is Leo, then it’s Virgo, Libra, Aries, Taurus,  Gemini, Cancer, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, then weakest is  Pisces. Sasori is not mentioned, maybe because he’s the first one to  disappear?
  • The Headmaster a.k.a Red-eyed man is the Pyxis Zodiarts. (It’s a southern-facing constellation that’s shaped like the point of a compass)
  • Fourze Double Rocket States will first appear in Movie Wars MEGAMAX. Unconfirmed if it will show up in the TV series like W FangJoker and OOO SaGoZo (TaJaDoru) did before.
  • Kamen Rider Meteor’s Meteor Galaxy is a fingerprint reader.

Betcha that the Apollo State involves even more Rockets. 😉

Kamen Rider OOO Movie, Series and Final Form news: PuToTyranno Shocker! (not the bad kind)

We nearing the end, folks. The end of OOO that is. That being said, even with the last five episodes approaching, and news about Fourze coming out every five minutes, there’s still plenty of news and rumors floating around the interwebs, including info on the upcoming movie, summaries for the next two episodes, and some interesting news about OOO’s final form, or should I say lack of thereof. I’ll explain a little farther down, but first, onto movie news.

Recently, one of the series producers, Naomi Takebe, was interviewed by Otofanami magazine (issue No.35) about the current Rider, and on his upcoming movie. Here are the main points about Kamen Rider OOO THE MOVIE: WONDERFUL, Shogun, and 21 Core Medals:

  • The movie is set in about events that happened in June in the TV series. But it will be aired in August, so it is different from the series. People will be reminded of the ‘good times,’ where Date is Birth, and Gotou is the support.
  • Because Eiji has travelled around many countries before, the movie is trying to create an atmosphere in a foreign country.

Of course, these aren’t the only things revealed in this interview, as we also have some info on the final episodes of the series as well.

In that same interview with Otofanami, Takebe also revealed some new info on some of the new big changes in the story that are just around the corner:

  • Eiji, Ankh and Hina’s relationship will have a big change. Eiji  eventually will have to fight Ankh, although they are working together  now.
  • Eiji and Ankh’s aim are different, Ankh wants a complete body, while  Eiji doesn’t have any desire. All these and Kougami’s aim will be  revealed.

This series just can’t sit still, can it? Anyway, here are some possible episode summaries:

Episode 43: The Vulture, the Confrontation, and Ankh Returns – July 24
A couple is sitting at a park and a white Yummy is born out of the male. The Yummy eventually grows into the Vulture Yummy. The Vulture Yummy starts to immediately go after his targets. Meanwhile, Ankh takes over Shingo’s body again. But with one of his Core Medals broken, he cannot fully recover anymore. Ankh leaves Eiji and heads to Dr. Maki, what is his aim…?

Episode 44: N/A – July 31
Ankh recruits Kazari, Uva, Gamel, Mezool to snatch the purple medals inside Eiji’s body. Gotou and Hina are worried about Eiji, who’s slowly growing into a Greeed, so they ask Kougami for help. Kougami tells Eiji to look at some important information about Core Medals.

Wow, we still have so many questions, and there doesn’t seem to be enough time left to answer them. But there is one nagging question that we do have an answer for, although the answer is just as surprising as the series itself.

Going back to the interview with Takebe, we’ve now learned that OOO does NOT have a final form! Breaking with the recent tradition from the past few years, OOO will not have a final form, and PuToTyrano does not count as a final form. Takebe explains in her interview,

Over the past years, there was a “final form” for Riders to end the series. This time the 6 Combos of OOO have appeared quite a lot. In OOO the Combo change is the main gimmick, and this gimmick will be continuously used in the series.

This comes as quite the shock to fans of the series that saw the dinosaur-themed combo as his final form. And overall, it is unusual to see a modern Heisei Rider that doesn’t have a final form. Then again, does OOO really need a final form, with all the Combos and possible Medal combinations at his disposal?

That’s it for now, if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know.
