So it's Kamen Rider Double as if the show was Joker and Cyclone right from the beginning? Interesting. The making "a deal with the devil" concept isn't bad either. Seems kinda serious with the premise being summoning inner demons from innocent people to cause havoc in the world, reminds me of Wizard with the despair idea. Revice's design is fine but I'm not feeling Vice. It's suppose to be dinosaurs but Vice looks like a cat or bear to me. I don't like the color schemes for both of them too. Why make Revice and Vice both pink? It just color clashes with my eyes.
So you're saying that if enough people in the Western Toku community try and "cancel" this guy, he'll get recasted?? It took about 11 years of idiotic tweets to Shirakura to finally get Toei to go after the fansub groups of Rider and Sentai, effectively ending the little paradise with had with fansubs.The final bit of casting news has proven rather controversial. The voice of Vice will be provided by Subaru Kimura. Toku fans will probably know him best as the voice of the Seiza Blaster in Kyuranger. However, since then Kimura has made numerous social media posts mocking African cultures and on one occasion even posted a photo of himself in blackface. These posts were removed very quickly after getting many negative responses, but he has yet to comment on them in any way and blocks anyone that brings it up.
Kimura is half German (his real surname is "Bartsch") and was born in Germany. He is also fluent in English and lived in the US for a time when appeared on Broadway. So the usual "it's a different culture" argument doesn't apply here.
