It’s time again for the annual Changing of the Masked Guard, and with the last one blasting off into the inner spacce of nerdly nostalgia, the new one has whisked in to ring in the new season (you see what I did there just now?). Now let’s watch the opening exploits of this new magic ring-bearing Rider, as he demonstrates the power of hope!

Wizard Ep.1 SUB:
Well, so how did you like that? A decent episode overall. You gotta lke this “mystery” opening; really plays up the magical nature of the whole thing. I’ll admit, having him admit that he has a Phantom running around inside him is kind of a lame setup for the whole “becoming the very thing you fight” theme that we see almost every other series, but it works (trust me, even if he doesn’t change into said monster, there will be some kind of big struggle that will play out starting around mid-season). Overall I’m looking forward to the next episode, are you?
