Did you think Onodera was a good Godai replacement?

he's OK by me, i think he deserves some credit. A 10 episode spin-off mini-series wouldn't hurt.:p
 
Overall, Joe Odagiri deserves to be the Yuusuke of all time. Onodera is just a clone for bringing the children's smile although he had more grief emotion than Godai. The real Godai never kills anyone.

He was great until he was butchered by other writers.

His best performance as a character was in episode 2 and 3 where he almost breaks down and then he finally accepts Yashiro's wish to protect everyone's smiles..

I think that Yusuke is a worthy sucessor to Godai's Kuuga. Sadly he doesn't have enough goodness in his heart to contain Ultimate Form's evil. Since it took his death & rebirth to bring him back to his senses

He's not as bad as he is usually made out to be. In the hands of a more competent writing staff he'd probably be equal to Godai. Then again he's overshadowed by the star of the show, obviously.

You guys shouldn't compare him to Godai because its unfair on Onodera's part. The guy was written to be a supporting character and not a the main star of the show. As others have said he was best written in episodes 2 and 3 because primarily its HIS arc and he IS the star on the arc. If he was written the same way as Godai was then he'd overshadow Tsukasa in an instant and the show would have been Kamen Rider Kuuga...also starring decade.

Exactly.

I think I would have preferred to watch that show instead. I like how over in the Kuuga thread, everybody is gushing over how Kuuga ended without explaining everything because real life is mysterious like that.

Now that I think of it, same thing happened in Decade essentially, except they're called plotholes now because poor execution really screws ambitious concepts up.

I didnt really have a problem with Onodera. I just wished he fought more. Oh,and made his poses better.

The tone of the show was much different than the original Kuuga, so we wouldnt really know how Onodera would be if it was like the actual series too.:p

I'm starting to think that this might also be the reasoning for not wanting to bring back too many of the original actors, because they didn't want to take the spot light off from Decade.

Cho Den-O and Decade is a living proof of that and they didn't even bring Takeru Sato back yet.

Well...Chou Den-O I think is a bad example, because Decade didn't get all that much screen time in the film the spotlight was still on the Den-O crew. Besides I don't think it mattered to Toei if they got Takeru back or not, as long as they could get the Imagine voice actors...

Then they should have done something ELSE. It was stupid to bring back the costumes, but not the worlds OR the actors. It wasn't ambitious--it was a slap in the face.

Yeah it was, It was a slap in the face to not see Onodera ride the Beatchaser, to not see Another Agito, to not see Hibiki Kuernai and Blade Jack form. Or Ichijo and Ozawa.

But it is unrealistic to expect so much. I think. I wish they included a bit more though
