Mizushima's okay, but I sort of wish Hosokawa could have been saved for this show now. :laugh:

Hosokawa's age would have served this character better, but I think he's too likable to really play the cocky arrogant guy that Tendou's supposed to be.

Let's start the annual "Where is this show headed?" guessing game! Can it be that Tendou is a WORM (or "WARM" as TV-Asahi puts it) and that the Kabuto belt is actually alien, and that's why he had one/it chose him? Is that why he's so friggin' arrogant and is really the only one that can get the job done?

I don't see why people are calling him cocky, arrogant, and a jerk. All his actions have reasoning, he treats his sister well, and hasn't really done anything selfish. He does have his head in the clouds acting like he's enlightened due to his grandmother's teaching I suppose. I guess people are reading his character incorrectly due to his bad acting.

So he's more of a "cheery" rider then...

I wouldn't say that exactly. He acts like he's got a deep understanding of the universe. He may point out people's faults when he sees people being rude to him or someone else. He's kinda got a Caine in Kung Fu vibe to him.

Just saw Ep 1. Wow...I think I'm still processing it...It's very very very flashy - not just in the actual ep, but the aura it gives off...Someone is REALLY confident, or just...REALLY wants to make sure this series premiere doesn't go unnoticed.

It's uh...very matrixy - something I hope they'll lose as it goes on. I'm liking the idea of Rider Grunts more and more - although, I hope they play a bigger role eventually rather than just being a bit of warmup for the uh..whatever that green chyrsalis thing is. The actor reminds me of Raia gone badass. ...I don't have a comment yet on his acting. But uh, was that girl talking to his bike???

EDIT: IT's about DAMN time we've got a rider who's cocky, arrogant, without being a jerk...::coughs Kusaka:: Although I liked him...

I think people are too quick to equate slow motion camera effects with bullet time. The two are very different. Time slows around Kabuto and the Worm, while they move at normal speeds. Whereas in the Matrix, time slows everything just to show off the super fast movements the characters make that you couldn't normally see.

It's the same thing. Tweaking one small aspect doesn't really make it any less of a ripoff. I guarantee that had The Matrix never been made, Kabuto wouldn't have any "Kabuto Time" in it.

And I don't see why being cocky is a good character trait for a Rider to have. Confidence, maybe, but cockiness is a negative characteristic and from what we've seen of his character so far it's kind of hypocritical and out of place.

It's not a rip-off, that's the point. The Matrix didn't invent slow mo. If it was used in the same way that it's used in The Matrix, then yeah it would be a rip-off.

The Matrix didn't invent slow motion, but for all practical purposes it invented ultra-stylized slow motion and "Bullet Time" as we now know it. It's similar enough not to just be coincidence.
