You can spoil. I really don't mind.

No no no no no...

You really don't want us to spoil. The Series is THAT good. At the rate you're watching it you should be at the end soon enough anyway. Give this series the respect it desrves. Enjoy the end to it's full potential. Nobody spoil!

Phew! What a task. I FINISHED BLADE last night! W00t! And now for my final thoughts..

Fuckin' A. The series was just...kickass material right there. Right from beginning to end.

Oh the characters, where to begin? Kenzaki IS Blade. Give it his cheery self or his way of fighting with others, this guy simply is my favorite.

Tacihbanna "Ph33r" san was awesome. His whole fear of becoming an undead was great. What I also liked about him was his chemistry with Sayoko-san. But in the end, it's another story.

Mutsuki was good, but at times he feels stiff and goes overboard with the whole "emoness" and obsession with Kamen Rider. At times his "Leangle" rocks and at times, he's...okay.

Kotarou "Daimon the 2nd' was great and provided some lighter moments. Ditto to Haruka-san, Amane and Hirose.

But who really stole the show, was none other than Chalice. Hajime San deserves KUDOS for being the best "alienated" rider eva! Watch out for his conflicts in the series post Leangle's debut, they tend to unfold more secrets.

Overall: Blade is MUST WATCH. At times it drags a bit, but the story and characterization leaves you interested. Toku tested, Series approved!

Now I still have to watch the movie, Missing Ace. Does it take place AFTER the series? Otherwise, my next eyes are on Faiz!

I'm going to spoiler this. BEWARE!!!!

Any idea where Kenzaki's gone? Is he dead?

[HIDE]No, infact, he's immortal, He leaves Chalice along with the people around him for they don't have to fight and live as regular humans, they didn't really say where[/HIDE]

Thanks. Got it now. Phew.

After watching Missing Ace by Friday, I'll be done with blade and onward with...between a Hibiki and Faiz. Not sure what to watch next.:redface2:
 
Yes, Kamen Rider Blade is a very kickass show.
I've watched the series 3 times already and it's kind of become a habit of mine to watch it every winter break.
Can't wait to start on this series again.
Good times... Good times

Hibiki isn't completely like Blade or Kabuto, It kinda fells like a diffrent show, however, theres a point to it and the characters are relatible, and it has good character development. My most favorite is Tordoroki.

and if you like Kabuto, you could like Faiz too. It gets more better on the 2nd half with Delta. But I won't give to much away.

and if your still debating on what your going to do when your done with those 2, I'm on the same boat, however, I am saving money to buy Agito and Ryuki.

I personnalluy reccommed faiz, it won't be too hard to adapt to form Blade.

I might consider.

Reason I asked both series is that I dled Faiz 1 and watching the first few minutes of the episode made me feel it was too soap opera-ish, so I trashed it from my HD, but after witnessing Blade as a warmup, I feel I can take on Faiz next.

As for Hibiki, I really LOVED the 7 War Oni Director's cut. I might watch that after Faiz, which should take up the remainder of my time till OO starts.

Faiz is soap opera-ish, moreso than any other series. I'd say go with Hibiki so you can see a whole different side of Kamen Rider after and then after that you might wanna try Ryuki if you can find it.

Faiz can get like that in some points, their ends up having a few love triangles...even thought their just friends.

Just watched Missing Ace.

Honestly, it's a good movie, but somehow, I was completely not as satisfied as I was with the series itself.

[HIDE]While Kenzaki and the former riders reacting to Tachibanna's n00bs (or rather undead n00bs) was priceless,[/HIDE] I still prefer the series to this flick.

[HIDE]Having Amane-Chan/Hajime (seriously UNDERUSED in the movie) was well...it had potential[/HIDE] and I'll leave it at that.

The plot was well...nice. But I seriously wanted some more Hajime action. But Kenzaki kicked ass as usual. Kotarou Daimon's the new playboy writer and Hirose...the hell, she brags about her [HIDE]wedding[/HIDE] and then when she [HIDE]leaves to assist Kenzaki/Tachibana, she completely forgets, EVEN IN THE END. Well, maybe that explains her drunk sobbing in the finale[/HIDE].

But hey, Blade kicked arse over all. Movie aside.
 
I think what best from Blade was it's ending.

Comparable to other Rider series (especially 2000 and up) they ussually have an open ending. You'll need to decide yourself what's the story is telling you.
