The trademark bot has awoken from it's slumber. The next Kamen Rider series will be Kamen Rider Geats...no, not Zi-O's secondary Rider. As always, it's probably going to be about another month or so before we get any more details.

I heard this was going to be related to Faiz. Possible lore tie-in. Which would be awesome because I loved watching 555.

That'd be interesting. The way the season ended & Paradise Lost movie played out made it seem like they'd wished they could've kept the series going another season or so.

I just looked into the matter & am starting to wonder how this might be connected to Faiz in any other way that having a limited basis on Europeanisms. Apparently, Geats is a common Anglicization of a Nordic tribe from Southern Sweden who are often connected indirectly to the Goths, as they believe the two names have similar origins (I guess the Swedes call the Geat people Götas in their own language, which apparently means "sacrificers.") So, maybe this season with be Gothic themed & they just happened across the term Geats when doing research & thought it was a cool name?

EDIT: OK, Rangerboard may have provided the last clue with the Faiz connection- Viking Runes happen to be vaguely similar to the Greek Alphabet. Maybe gimmick object will be runes, this time. Suit may have also been leaked, as we got a drawing, similar to what happened with Saber. Of course, I'm apparently not the first person to find the Geat tribe connection & this suit just looks like Build taking inspiration from Beowulf- who is supposed to have been from Geatland. But, everyone is stuck on "Viking theme" with that. I'm personally sticking with Goth who transforms with runes until prove otherwise. Anyway, link to alleged drawn Pic of Geats.

I think that's just the new version of the old 'number theory' stuff.

People noticed that Zero-One was a grasshopper and Saber was a dragon and went "hey, Kuuga was a grasshopper and Agito was a dragon...clearly this means that they're repeating the Heisei Rider themes with the Reiwa ones!" Then they've spent all of Revice trying (unconvincingly) to find ways that it's "based" on Ryuki, and are insisting that Geats will clearly be related to Faiz and totally prove that they were right all along. :rolleyes:

Clearly since they didn't even bother giving the series an ending. Nothing was resolved. They never told us anything about who the hell Smart Lady was. Is she even an Orphnoch?

Oh wow I remember the number theory for KR back in the day.

Decade = 1 because of the Rider card (even though decade means 10)
W = 2 Gaia Memories,
OOO = 3 Core medals,
Fourze = 4 Astro switches.
So at this point, there was an ongoing theme with numbers.

Then Wizard = 5 because of 5 fingers smh.
Apparently Gaim = 6 because the lockseeds when opened are shaped like 6.
Drive = 7 because when you flip the shift cars its shaped like 7.
Then Ghost is apparently 8 because the Mugen Eyecon when you flip it on its side = 8 (even though its clearly the infinity symbol).
Ex-Aid = 9 because the Gaashats look like the number 9?
And then with Build it finally all stopped....

Fans are wild, what can I say :). It all ended with Fourze imo.

Hey, it was still a fun thing to speculate on. Plus, it royally pissed off the owner of the Tokunation forum, which made it even better because that harassing jackass deserved it.

Logo looks cool. I wonder if he will be gatekeeping Kamen Rider fans. :p

Given Kamen Riders track record of every other serie being good, I'm not expecting much out of this one. I really think Revice is going to be the closes thing we will ever have to an early Heisei show in tone for a long time.

Well, looks like a shark is involved in some way, so there's our Faiz thing. I wonder if this logo is supposed to be in black & white, or if it's just de-colored? Cause if it's supposed to look like that, then I suppose that that's good evidence for a goth-themed Rider.

On the other hand, we did see a mysterious shark-themed Rider on a movie poster elsewhere & he was blue. Didn't really look too goth to me.

I don't think it's a particularly original thought, but the A reminds me of Accel's logo and the remaining large letters seem like the kind of "street" font that you see used on racing games. So it suggests to me another car theme.

If you're thinking of the Revice summer movie poster, people have blown up the image and that Rider seems to be wearing yet another modified Demons Driver. I think the rumour is that it will be Genta (the dad).

OK, we got this partial image, which is allegedly from a promo card that people will receive when going to see an upcoming Rider movie that is supposed to be Geats. A series of rumors we've got since then has changed from a shark theme to a kitsune spirit, which would explain what Geats means. I'm still hoping for Goth Rider, here. Color scheme this time would match that.

TV Asahi have launched the show's official site. It talks about a "Desire Grand Prix" in which people are turned into Kamen Riders and must compete by defeating monsters and saving people.

It looks like the head writer may be Yuya Takahashi (head writer of Ex-Aid and Zero-One) and the head producer is Naomi Takebe (Kiva, OOO, Go-Busters, Gaim, Ninninger).

Side note; I know everyone is going to concentrate on the big gun, or the helmet's fox ears, but look just to the right of the logo and it looks like he has a bike exhaust coming out of each side of his left boot.

Also, that handle coming out of his belt is very Accel-ish lol.
