From ◆zQacw/7nsedJ, usually has the kanji "代理" next to his trip. This guy is a reliable spoiler provider.

"Main producer: Takaaki Utsunomiya
Secondary producer: Kazuhiro Takashi"

There was a post back in April that mentioned Utsunomiya as well It was posted a few days after it was confirmed that the auditions were finished.

"Utsunomiya
Takuya Terada
Risako Itou"

Takuya is an Amuse actor, so there is a chance that he's the next Rider.
Yeah because 2 chan is SOOO reliable :anime:

I liked him when he wasn't a god
Takuya Terada is kind of cutesy-looking and looks young for his age, I would lol so hard at him trying to play an "alpha male" :laugh: Then again, since Toei's idea of an alpha male these days is a grumpy emo-kid who thinks he's tough, maybe Terada can pull it off

Utsunomiya? Well, he should be fine for a standalone series... I just hope this isn't going to be a crossover show now.

He managed to turn the first Sentai crossovers in tv show ever into something the general audiences just didn't care about. It might even result in Toei avoiding more tv show crossovers in the future. We certainly don't need that for Rider...

Although, the series that coudl be considered an anniversary of sorts again would be next year, 2013, so I guess there's little chance of that happening, and his show will likely be standalone.

Well those pictures can still surprise us once we get scans. Remember when we saw Ryuki, Shu and Sota and then actually saw them in magazine scans as their respective characters, Kengo, Eiji and Gentaro.

Utsunomiya has worked on Faiz, Blade, Magiranger, Boukenger, Gekiranger, Kiva, Decade, and was chief producer on Gokaiger and Shinkenger for anyone interested. I imagine at the least, the main character this time is going to be another alpha male. Not like Gentarou, but more brooding.

I'm sorry, I'm reading what you said there but, I'm trying to picture Geki's Jan with brooding and it's not going well. :laugh:
(unless, you meant Rio?)

I have seen this guy in different Amuse stuff and he does look pretty young, but ... yeah, I'll wait for official word

He's talking about the series where Tsunomiya was actually the main producer, Shinkenger and Gokaiger. That's where the style of a producer is actually easily visible, not in the ones where he's just a secondary member of the production team. Geki's main producer was Tsukada.

I kind of love that Rider isn't sticking to a single producer for every year. As much as I like Tsukuda, the variation is great for the franchise.

Oh...great.

Hopefully we won't get more misunderstandings and socially retarded riders.

Let's hope Inoue stays far away from Rider this year. :redface2:

Nice post!!

I doubt it. Utsunomiya is probably getting this on the strength of Shinkenger moreso than Gokaiger. Also because... Toei doesn't really employ a lot of other people with production experience at the moment. It would be Utsunomiya or an outsider at this point, if Toei didn't want to rely on somebody totally green.

Ahh, gotcha.

Shinkenger had the best Sentai ratings of the last five years (although I suspect that's as much to do with the patriotic themes of the show as the production style,) so he seems like a logical choice. But I don't care who writes this thing as long as it is someone, anyone, other than Inoue

You're probably right, and I don't think it's really likely, especially considering how Tsukada/Fourze's team was told they couldn't do a team up show like Decade. Still, I just fear someone at Toei giving Utsunomiya another chance at a crossover tv show based on the good fan response to Gokaiger, presumably assuming that it underperformed in ratings due to Sentai's own audience.

I think something like that, if he took his approach to tv crossovers to Rider (and it likely failing to appeal yet again to general audiences), could just end up hurting the chances of any future crossovers outside of movies...

Why are you so worried about Inoue anyway? It's pretty clear Toei won't give him a big role like main Rider writer nowadays.

Why is every good TV show Cancelled
Meh, I can wait a little longer. I finally got the chance to see some of Fourze, but I still have to finish it first, lol.

Were they told that? I recall reading the statement translated more like, "Well, we didn't want to do another team-up show like Decade, but..."

To me it seems the show that's happening because of the strong fan response to Gokaiger is Akibaranger, which Utsunomiya has no involvement in (as far as I know). Part of me wonders if Arakawa and Utsunomiya may have had problems getting along during Gokaiger... there's a real tension in the show, it seems to be fighting itself at points. Akibaranger is far less conflicted.

I'd wait and see what Fourze's ending is like. If we're going to see team-ups in a show, then I could see it being part of Fourze's season ender, sort of an homage to the Showa tradition of all the Riders showing up toward the end.

As for a regular crossover series... well, it's just a matter of what Toei wants to do. Back in the day, the crossovers were in part to promote merchandise of older Riders who were still a bit more popular than the new guy. Merchandise for new Riders does so well these days, I'd wonder if Bandai would really want the camera time split among a bunch of different properties? It made sense when Decade did it, but W and OOO have wildly exceeded Decade's merchandise numbers while focusing entirely on the new property (in the TV show, anyway).

IIRC, the quote went more like "we initially wanted to do a team up show, but it was similar to Decade which had just done that". He didn't specifically say that he was "told" by someone, but it sounded like something happened and changed the original concept for Fourze.

It made sense when Decade did it, but W and OOO have wildly exceeded Decade's merchandise numbers while focusing entirely on the new property (in the TV show, anyway).

If you look at the actual merchandising promotion these days though, they often use the image of the previous Riders. From games to McDonalds tie ins and even the collectibles in the main merchandising lines, Rider nowadays seems to be filled with images of past series being used everywhere outside of the tv shows themselves. Their presence actually seems to be even increasing - With it being limited to some rare Gaia memories during W, but expanding to full sets of medals in OOO and even some roleplay toys now during Fourze. So, the higher merchandising sales might be coming partially from this sinergy between new and old series. A crossover should help making new viewers aware of the past brands, like the old Showa crossovers did, so it should only help that side too.

Crossovers have worked so far for Rider as far as higher tv ratings go too - and it's in this point which I think Gokaiger was dangerous for future tv crossovers, due to the failure of the "crossovers" there to raise ratings after the first few episodes. Although I think it's due to the way the went about doing those crossovers - without actually doing hero x hero encounters but just hero x mentors - Toei might just look at it as proof that Decade was just a one off and modern tv audiences aren't interested in crossovers. I don't think they'll do that due to how the crossover movies are still continuing successfully, but, I guess there's always the possibility they'll consider movies and tv audiences separate ones...

Went are we gonna get a manly looking actor for the main character, who's around the same age as the actors we get these days, instead of a cutesy one? The only manly ones we got recently were Eiji and Shotaro.
