Eh, we knew it was Sonoda ever since someone found that anagram in her name. The mannerisms we can work out fairly easily really, she's in love with him like Oshgui is for her, so she's imitating him. That and deliberate red herrings like the hint Oshgui was Scorpio with his horoscope whenever that happened. Also I'd hope the members of shadowy organisation would have the sense not to act the same in both forms, especially in front of kids you know are the enemy.

I agree with you; I also think it's very possible that all three of them- Sonoda, Oshgui and Garren are the Zodiarts. That would be interesting.

At first glance, I didn't like Fourze's suit or the introduction of the main characters, but all of them grew on me quickly, with the exception of JK. I found him a bit too much of a jerk/coward, it probably takes me a while to warm up to him.

That beside, I enjoy everything about Fourze. I don't mind the cartoon-ish or comical sounds and effects they used in the show either.

The most enjoyable aspect of the show is probably their friendship and group work, which is rare in Kamen Rider shows. Beside Kabuto and Den-O, I can't really recall any series that the Riders have such supportive group of partners. So everything about Fourze is just so fun and... fluffy for me :laugh:

Nice post!!
I'm trying to catch up on Fourze, I want to keep up on this thread but sheesh, spoilers.

Yeah, next time we do a rules revision we should really note this. If you don't want to be spoiled on things, don't read a talk-up until you've seen the latest episode to air. It is not customary to "hide" spoilers in the talk-ups and never has been.

Miniatures on a string can only get you so far in the 21st century. :loltongue:

Much better than something that looks like it belongs in a video game.

CGI looks like video game footage, animated. Never looked good in Tokusatsu.

Compare Sentai's mecha gattai scenes in CGI to the traditional version and tell me which looks better, clearly the traditional way.

Point conceded there. I think Gokaiger has very stale mecha fights due to overreliance on CGI. IMO GoJyuJin's one of the least guilty in this regard.

CGI is supposed to improve as time goes by, I have hope that one day it will be advanced enough to have the required realism to even have an animated character there without uncanny valley.

CGI improvement is proportional to budgetary constraints, though, so until Toei stops being a cheapskate...

CGI is just terrible. Even the uber expensive CGI in the movies is lame. It looks like a cartoon was thrown into the live action film. That **** doesn`t appeal to me at all.

I like my Spider-Man movies with live action stunts, not cgi. I like my Tokusatsu the same way.

CGI crap should be used in CGI films, not thrown into the live action bit. To me anyone defending CGI in any way is like someone defending a hangover to me.

Besides Barizog from Gokaiger, toei is dipping into other heroes.
 
hey everyone.

My internet is really crappy right now. It's having major problems. I might not be able to see Fourze this week. (My neighbor's signal keeps waving in and out. It might not last through the episode) Does anybody have a non-Youtube site I could watch it at? I remember there being some Chinese(?) site on jefusion about 6 weeks ago that housed them.

Thanks.

Yeah, so those teacher names are pretty much dead give aways, aren't they? :laugh:

Also, what up with Gentaro seeing himself in that crater?

I told you man, something is up with Gentarou. I haven't seen the newest ep but he's got some backstory involving space and other dramatic ****. I just hope we don't have to wait 40 more weeks to find out.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! SUBARASHI!!!!
Well this is a very impressive episode. Double Limit Break was cool, it kinda reminded me how Faiz defeated J with a Double Exceed Charge. RIDER ROCKET DRILL UCCCHUUU DAIII KICCK FTW!:buttrock:

I loved how they handled the ending, the reason why Gentaro could see himself was Libra creating the illusion. [HIDE]Libra later turns himself into a Fake Fourze.[/HIDE]

I'm just wondering if Sonoda could still change to Scorpion or is her switch broken already.

Kamen Rider Fourze Episode 14

. Hooray for being able to see the foodroids in action once again!! At least they have some use, but ever since Double both OOO and Fourze have seemed to put them to good use a lot of the times.

. So Mitsuaki has the ability to create to new stars? (Choushinsei, like Choushinsei Flashman), and in addition to that, give it to his Horoscopes and have them evolve??? Fascinating!! I'm wondering what Sonoda means by calling Gabou a 'savior' and 'king'. Wonderful exposition and gradual leaking of information by Sanjo. Just leaves us wanting more. Oh, and the similar hand motions again!!

. The darker Sonoda was very nice. Kind of reminds me of Wakana when she became Claydoll X and suddenly wore darker clothes and became a much more sinister person. Stabbing Gentaro, J.K and Shun was pretty badass.

. The Choushinsei Scorpio was definitely a bit ambitious, but a very cool way to differentiate the power levels of an ordinary Zodiart to that of a Horoscope. I'm interested to see how the other Horoscopes will exhibit their powers after acquiring a Choushinsei. Or maybe someone like Libra already has...

. Really cool to see Tomoko contribute, and then Kengo going through all the pain to heal Gen. Such bros already.

. Pretty nice to see Miura reject the Switch because he wanted to happy like he was before with his girlfriend and whatnot again.

. Nice fight between the Dustards and Elek, and it's cool that we get to see the Fire and Elek often before we get the Magnet States and whatnot. Great to see Scorpio finished off in a similar way to Orion. Ending the reign of terror of Sonoda Sarina upon the students of Amanogawa High School, and enter Kouhei's turn to grow the students.

. Loved the end with the subtle reference to the movie and Gentaro's love when Gen asks for true love and stuff.

. Movie OP revealed Virgo in action, guess Virgo's CGI budgets will go on it's impressive wings. Can't wait to see Virgo in action haha. Also some kickass GataKiriBa wirework with OOO using the lightning while flying through the air.

All in all, an impressive first act of Fourze. Definitely has not disappointed yet.
