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. 😉

Movie Wars MEGAMAX filming updates: Wrap ups, voice overs, and some new pics.

NO! Not ironic hipster glasses! Oh, the humanity!

Getting past that, it’s time for some MEGAMAX updates!

According to a recent post on Watanabe Shu(Hino Eiji/Kamen Rider OOO)’s personal blog, it looks like he finished filming his scenes for the OOO part of the movie around October 9th. And in a later post that came out Friday, October 15th, Watanabe confirmed that he, along with Iwanaga Hiroaki (Gotou Shintaro/Kamen Rider Birth), Kimijima Asaya (Date Akira/Prototype Birth), and Miura Ryosuke (Ankh), had finished their ADR recordings for the movie. And in a separate blog post, Takada Riho also mentioned doing some ADR recording for the movie. I wonder why?

And this newest set of movie pics confirms the return of Kougami to the movie. And if I may say so, SUBARASHI!

Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider OOO & Fourze Movie Wars MEGAMAX premieres December 10th.

Kamen Rider Fourze Super MEGA post: Launching Story Barrage in 3,…2,…1!

Hey, a bunch of new stories and rumors have come out for Kamen Rider Fourze over the last few days, and unfortunately I haven’t been able to keep up with the ever-growing number. So I’ve decided to just throw everything into one mega-post, starting from oldest to newest. So let’s get to it!

First off, we have official confirmation that both Ankh will return in Movie Wars MEGAMAX, and that Shotaro and Phillip will show up in this movie for the Kamen Rider W scene. As you can see from this image above, it also confirms the appearance of the Seven Legendary Riders. All of this can be seen in the newest trailer:

Is that a triple henshin I see? 😉

Next, the first official trailer for the upcoming game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze has been released, and features both the new characters and the new gameplay. Let’s watch:

Don’t you just wanna rush out to order it? 😛

Next, we have some new episode summaries, and it looks like Daimonji will be joining the Kamen Rider Club soon, though rather reluctantly…

Episode 7: N/A – 10/16
Amanogawa High School wins the District Tournament. Daimonji’s father congratulates him. The cheering team also comes out to cheer. However, Daimonji is searching for Miu. He phones her, Miu says that she is busy with other club activities.

At the background you can hear the sound “Spike ON,” and Miu started to scream. Fourze and Yuki were trying out the switches. Miu tells Daimonji that Kamen Rider activities are important and hangs up the phone.

Episode 8: N/A – 10/23
Gentaro, Kengo and Yuki are requested to have a supplementary class during holiday time, but a Zodiarts appeared and the three must leave the classroom. The teacher ordered them to stand outside the classroom because of their actions. Daimonji is in the class as well so as to interfere with the Kamen Rider Club.

Episode 9 – N/A 10/30
Gentaro and Yuki have a morning run? Kengo and Nozama stares at them coldly. Meanwhile, three girl students and Tomoko call themselves witches. Yuki is invited to one of their secret witch meetings…

Next, it’s been confirmed that anime singer May’N and former SURFACE vocalist Shiina Yoshiharu have formed a new singing unit, the Astronauts, to sing the theme for Fourze’s Elek State entitled “Giant Step”, which was heard in episode 6 of Fourze. Both artists have performed a number of different anime themes with each of their respective groups, and this is the first time the two have collaborated on such a project.

And finally, we have a few rumors on the second Rider for Kamen Rider Fourze, the newly named Kamen Rider Sagu. Here’s what’s been said do far:

  • 2nd Rider is named Kamen Rider Sagu and powers come from the Sagittarius Zodiarts. The Zodiarts Switch is converted into the 41st Astro Switch.
  • The armor is all blue, including the eyes. The left eye divided, and the division makes for a sort of “3rd eye.”
  • Belt has a bow-and-arrow motif and works like GokaiSilver’s GokaiCellular, scanning the switches. The arrow on the belt is the symbol for Mars, the circle of the arrow is pulled up on using your finger to transform, causing the arrow to slide over the Switch, scanning it.
  • Belt works with Sagu’s personal weapon.

So, a bad guy turned good, and on based on the warrior constellation Sagittarius? We’ll have to see how this one turns out.

And that’s it for Fourze news. You should be completely caught up at this point in time. But if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know!

Latest MEGAMAX Rumors: Connecting the past with the present with EVIL!!!

Even before the release of the official trailer for the movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze and OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX, these rumors popped up. Let’s see how the plot of the movie will take shape now:

  • Kamen Rider W is going to show up (as we saw in the trailer), and the final boss is a traitor of Foundation X. It’s not a Dopant though, seems to be a new type of monster.
  • The final boss manages to get a hold of Poseidon’s medals and Nadeshiko’s Astro Energy and turns into a monster.
  • A black man monster from an older series shows up as well.
  • The Seven Legendary Riders, a future Rider, and Kamen Rider W fights off Dopants, Greeeds and some early Zodiarts.
  • The black man is most likely J from Kamen Rider Faiz. Meaning that they could be trying to link Foundation X with Smart Brain.

Wow, they are trying really hard to connect all of these older storylines, if any of it’s true. BTW, I just copied the rumors from somewhere else, so don’t yell at me if the wording isn’t exactly politically correct. Beyond that, it looks like it might be true, since these rumors originally surfaced about an hour before the official trailer came out, and it mentioned W being in the movie long before anything else came out about it. So who knows, we’ll just have to wait and see what else comes out for the movie.

Movie Wars MEGAMAX Updates: Teen Pop-Star Riders!

Over the last few days, we’ve been getting a lot of rumors about the upcoming movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX, but since I haaven’t beena able to keep up with them, I’m just going to put the latest ones in one medium-sized post (I’d say big, but it really isn’t).

First, let’s start off with OOO. As you can see here from these new pics, we finally have a chance to see (among other things) the person behind the Kamen Rider Poseidon mask, Minato Miharu, played by D2’s Arai Atsushi, and yes, he’s the on with the blue streak in his hair with the blue jacket (he’s just a pair of white-rimmed glasses awat from being possessed by Urataros). Not much was revealed about this portion of the movie that hasn’t already been revealed, so we’ll move onto the next one.

It looks like the actress playing Misaki Nedashiko/Kamen Rider Nadeshiko will be Mano Erina of Hello! Project. Her first appearance in the movie will be a scene where she’s seen falling from the sky, with Gentaro just managing to catch her. Who she is ans how she managed to obtain her own Fourze System will be the two main driving points of this part of the movie.

Nadeshiko’s RiderKick will be a reference to Homare Sawa’s heel kick that won the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup Finals, and she herself is named after a soccer team of the same name, as was confirmed by director Tsukada Hideaki.

And finally, we have the first preview of the movie, featuring the two main Riders, the two new Riders, and some returning Riders, such as Ichigo, Nigo, Stronger, and W!:

That’s quite the All-Star line-up for the final part of the movie! Can’t wait to see it… three months after the premiere. Oh, the agonizing wait!

Seven Legendary Riders in Movie War MEGAMAX: Showa Rider KITAAAAA!!!!

Yesterday, we got news of two brand new Riders that will appear in Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider Fourze & OOO Movie Wars MEGAMAX. Today, we have news of a few old Riders appearing in the movie, as well as more info on Nadeshiko and Poseidon.

While the focus of the story will be on Fourze and OOO, it has been confirmed that seven Rider from the past will also be appearing in the movie. Namely, the Seven Legendary Kamen Riders Ichigo, Nigo, V3, Riderman, X, Amazon, and Stronger. No word on where they’ll appear in the movie or what role they’ll play in the story.

For Fourze’s part of the movie, the plot will mainly surround a love story between Gentaro and Misaki Nadeshiko, a hish chool girl whose able to transform into Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. She want to fight alongside Fourze, but who exactly is she?…

For OOO’s part, they encounter a mysterious young man named Miharu, who is able to transform into Kamen Rider Poseidon. Like OOO, Poseidon uses three Core Medals, the Shark, Whale, and Wolffish Medals. And from the look of this scan, I’d say that he’s OOO first evil Rider.

Well, at the very least, we’re looking at a movie with the total of 13 Riders (minimum), with what will probably be a very big ending. And yet, no one outside of Japan will be able to see it until next year. Nothing worse that delayed awesomeness.

-M.C., the Quantum Twin

UPDATE: We have a a bit more detailed background on the two parts of the movie, as well as on the two new Riders.

Fourze’s part of the movie will be the story of Gentaro’s first love. And who is this lady that managed to steal his heart? Why it’s Misaki Nadeshiko, a.k.a. Kamen Rider Nadeshiko. The main focus of the story will be on Nadeshiko’s identity, and on what happens with Gentaro’s first love (some people just went “Aww”, other just said “bleh”).

More detailed images of the suit show the changes that went in to stylize the suit for a more female appearance. The suit has a sailor-style collar connected to solar ribbons, a belt similar to the FourzeDriver, but it only has the two arm slots (so far for Rocket and Radar Switches), they seem to have swapped out the orange in the Fourze outfit for blue, and it’s rather form-fitting, which is an entirely different discussion. And her version of the FourzeDriver doesn’t seem to have the big lever on the side, so how will she henshin or perform a Limit Break? Hopefully, it won’t be some “magigirl”-style transformation, otherwise I’ll have to have a few words with Koichi-san.

And for the OOO part, the story seems to center around the arrival of this new Rider, Kamen Rider Poseidon. A mysterious young man named Miharu changes into Poseidon and challenges Eiji to a duel. Since Eiji has no way of transforming, since all of the original Core Medals were destroyed, Date steps in as Proto-Birth to fight him, but then the picture above happens…

Poseidon is very similarly modelled after OOO, he has a modified version of the OOODriver with three aquatic-themed Core Medals, his head, torso and legs matching the corresponding colors, and with the designs from the Medals on his chest. The designs on the Core Medals are of a Shark, Whale, and Bering Wolffish. This is solely my opinion, but he does remind me in many ways of a Maori warrior, between the theme of the Medals, the look of the designs on the Medals, and the odd-looking staff.

But his appearance begs many questions. How does he have these unique Core Medals? How does he have ANY Core Medals? And how will Eiji be able to defeat him if he can’t become OOO?

Kamen Rider Fourze Scans: New States, New Switches, and New Riders!

New scans time, which means a new look at what’s coming down the road. And for Fourze, that means the in-show reveal of his Elek State, a look at some new Astro Switches, and some very interesting Movie Wars MEGAMAX news. So let’s get this post in the air!

First, we have a massive pile of scans for Fourze’s Elek state, but no big reveals about it. You can look over them anyway:

Oh, so that’s how he changes into his Elek State. Mystery solved. 😛

And with that, we can move onto the new Switches!

These are all Switches set to be revealed in October. From No.11-16, we have:

  • Astro Switch 11 – Scissors
  • Astro Switch 12 – Beat
  • Astro Switch 13 – Chain Arrays
  • Astro Switch 14 – Smoke
  • Astro Switch 15 – Spike
  • Astro Switch 16 – Winch

Here’s the new switches in action:

And next, we have a shaded pic of Fourze’s Fire State, which uses an unkown red Switch, and is equiped with the Hi-Hack Gun Module.

Now that we’ve covered that, let’s deviate slightly for bit and talk about this scan:

Yep, looks like JK got into the KRC too, but Kengo seems to be very upset about it.

And finally, we have scnas featuring two new Riders for the Movie Wars MEGAMAX!

On the left we have Kamen Rider Nadeshiko, who will be in the Fourze part of the movie, and on the left we have Kamen Rider Poseidon, who will appear in the OOO part of the movie. Not much has been revealed about Poseidon, other than the alternate version of the OOODriver he wears, and his unique Core Medals which feature sea creatures (no confirmed identities of the Core Medals themselves). However, we have learned quite a bit about Nadeshiko.

Nadeshiko is a high school student that wants to work with Fourze. And she becomes a romantic interest for Gentaro, who will apparently fall in love with her. I guess they’re covering the “teen romance” base with this character. No word on whether or not she’ll appear in the series. And as you can see, she sports a more retro-looking spacesuit outift, with a blue version of the FourzeDriver that only has two slots for the arms.

This scan also confirms the rumors that the Fourze part of the movie will take place during the Amanogawa Sky High Festival.

Well, that’s all for Fourze news, if anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Movie Wars MEGAMAX Rumors: ALIENS! And Riders…

Some new rumors have popped up for the upcoming movie Kamen Rider x Kamen Rider OOO & Fourze Movie Wars MEGAMAX, which includes info on the second Rider, and Fourze’s encounters with past Riders. Here’s what’s come up so far:

  • Movie Wars ’11 will feature the debut of the very first alien Kamen Rider. This
    rider, Kamen Rider Meteor’s identity is that of Grei, a Martian.
  • Grei transfers into Amanogawa High School. He warns Gentaro that the “Space War” is coming, and that he should make friends with all the Kamen Riders.
  • Gentaro gathers up the older riders, allying with them friends. Some original
    actors appear, most are just guest voice overs.
  • By resonating with the old riders, Fourze attains a new form

Well, what do you think of Kamen Rider Meteor? Remeber, these are rumors, so the actual movie might go in a completely different direction all together. And while it would be cool to see an Alien Rider, something about him being called “Grei” and being from Mars almost sounds made up (unless they plan on showing him as a Grey alien that can change into human form). Although I wouldn’t put it past them to have another big Rider battle scene in this movie, since Fourze is the Anniversary season Rider (even though they’ve had several big Rider battles in the last two years).

That’s it for now If I find anything else, I’ll let you know.

Watanabe Shu and Miura Ryosuke filming together: Ankh is a phoenix, rising from the flames! (maybe.)

You see this big picture here? It was taken the other day by the other half of Watanabe Shu’s body, and it officially confirms that Miura Ryosuke and Watanabe are in fact filming together for the upcoming Movie Wars MEGAMAX!

Confirmation of this came from their respective blogs. So far, no details about the movie have been revealed yet, however, it apparently was a clear, sunny day while they were filming. Of course, we’re not here to talk about the weather. We wanna know one thing, and one thing above everything else: Have they managed to revive Ankh, or is this another story set at an alternate timeline that juts off from the main story? While that has been OOO’s trend in movies so far, that’s not to say that they could find a way to revive Ankh if they wanted to.
