A lot of the rumors that came out about this show have turned out to be true, even initial rumors about an astronaut theme and Fourze being a high school student. Well, it seems now that one proven rumor about the Kamen Rider Club started at Amanogawa High have taken a different direction than they did in the original rumors.
The Kamen Rider Club will still be in the show, but the story behind it will be completely different from what’s been reported up until now. The original rumors said that the club was started to investigate the “Kamen Rider urban legend”, but that’s not where the story is going to go anymore. Check out the article below:
Producer Hideaki Tsukuda says that some higher up from Toei told him to nix the idea. The reasoning they gave him was because Decade, a recent series, already did that and they didn’t want to retread familiar grounds too soon.
There was also a lot of complaining among the fanbase that might have lead to it. The producer seemed pretty bummed out about it, he’s the one that tried to visually link Double to the original Kamen Rider and really loves close ties in series.
Okay, maybe not a perfect translation, but you get the picture. So, now the KRC will have a new purpose all together. What do you think it will be about now?
Moving on, a new toy catalogue scan has popped up for Fourze toys, and it features six figure heads (actual, not political):
The main one is obviously Fourze in Base State, the next two heads are from the Elek and Fire States, and the final head is from Kamen Rider OOO PuToTyra. So what are the two blacked-out heads supposed to be?! Are these new, yet-to-be-announced States for Fourze? There’s not a lot that can be gathered from this page, but it seems likely they would throw in new States at this point, especially since the show just started. 😛 Any ideas on what these two new States could be?
That’s it for Fourze news at the moment, if anything else pops up, I’ll let you know.

UPDATE: You that article about the KRC? Yeah, apparently, that isn’t a translation quoted below, that was just a rumor from the person that originally brought up the article. Here’s the real translation:
It states that the Kamen Rider Club is aware and trying to defend against the Zodiarts, and the series will still retain the purpose of being the 40th anniversary series with Riders from the past history. It does bring up Decade being the Heisei 10th anniversary series, and them wanting to do a series to commemorate Kamen Rider’s 40th anniversary.
It also states the club is Fourze’s “backup” with Fourze doing most of the fighting. It also states that Gentaro is the only one who will use the Fourze Driver.
So, the club will pay homage to past Riders, but for the most part, they’ll just be back-up for Gentaro, who will be the only Fourze (sorry, Kengo, maybe you’ll be the second Rider). So what do you think now that you know what the article was really about?
