More photos for ya faces!
I've seen that going around quite a bit but I've never seen a source for it so other than "that's what Decade did" so I'm not sure why it's a thing?Thank the gods it is only supposed to go until May-ish.
A lot of the Heisei Riders returned for crossover movies, at least sporadically, but I think if they can't get the actual Riders back they might at least bring in a Second Rider or someone associated with the series.I think time travel will be a very tricky way to handle an anniversary event. Decade could get away with character recasting because "it's an alternate reality, it's *suppose* to be different!". But for time travel, the further back you go, the harder it will be to get returning actors. Unless you just want the time travel aspect to be a glorified clip-show. That or maybe go off some kind of "the mere act of time travel changes things" logic.
I think it might work if they are only focusing on the Riders from Decade to Build. I think you'll have a higher chance of those actors returning for sure. If you want to go beyond that, you can do a few Heisei & Showa for the show, but save it for the movies. In the movies, you can have tons of suit actors and voice actors, and the audience can just pretend it's the original characters behind the suits.
What happened to those actors? I think we'd be fine without Philip's actor as long as we can still get Shotaro's actor. As for Drive, I haven't seen anything about about Ryoma Takeuchi retiring or anything.
I didn't know Takeuchi had such a bad experience with Drive.As for Drive, I guess he had such a horrible experience when he did the show that he said he will never work with Toei again.
We're doomed.I swear I've seen Zi-O's finger pose before on a few other Riders .
I can't imagine them resisting putting that in the marketing though. "Tune in to see the final Heisei Rider!" We haven't had anything like that.The rumor circling around is that they are planning to end this series with Akihiko's retirement and then having a 65 episode Kamen Rider series take place after as both a kick off to the new emperor's rule and some huge celebration of the franchise as a whole. Obviously we have no idea if that is true or not, but given that similar rumors were surrounding Decade being a shorter series and they ended up being true, I'm not doubting them. Plus, the reasoning behind this being a shorter series makes sense.
Yeah I flip-flopped on it for ages in the first day after the staff news came out.I'm not sure about everyone else but I'll wait till After the eighth episode to pass judgment or spread doomsday sayings about the series
Well this is the producer of Decade, so it may be the alternate Yuususke that returns.A lot of the Heisei Riders returned for crossover movies, at least sporadically, but I think if they can't get the actual Riders back they might at least bring in a Second Rider or someone associated with the series.
Like, they probably can't get Joe Odagiri back, but maybe Ichijo's actor?
Yeah I hadn't heard about that either and my first thought was "well why did he come back for Heisei Gen?" As for Phillip's actor, he did a photo shoot for the Double manga and I doubt Toei would have allowed that if they really wanted him completely cut off from the product.I didn't know Takeuchi had such a bad experience with Drive.
Kinda makes me surprised he came back for the first Heisei Generations film (he probably couldn't get out of the Movie War).
I mean, I definitely thought of Decade's Yuusuke if they wanted Zi-O to meet an actual Kuuga, and Ryouta Murai would probably be up for a return (looking at Wikipedia, it doesn't seem like he's been in anything major in a few years).Well this is the producer of Decade, so it may be the alternate Yuususke that returns.
Sounds like the perfect choice to produce an anniversary season .Riders from more recent series would seem to be easier to get as they've progressed less in their careers. Then again, this is the producer who publicly declared that he thought Rider hadn't been interesting for years in the press conference for Amazons.
Wait, I thought Amazons Season 2 was supposed to be a vast improvement over season 1?
