Kamen Rider Gaim

Coming out of hiatus

Oh hey, look, it’s been almost a year since I posted here. :(

I have no excuse, other than the usual: been busy. Moved to a different country to do a graduate degree. It’s a good excuse, right?

However, I have kept up with Rider, and I love Gaim, so it’s pretty unforgivable that I have not given it its due here. I will try my best to fix that, as much as I can.

Kamen Rider OOO 32

Hino Eiji: Living for everyone’s sake but your own

I’m back to watching Kamen Rider OOO, although I’m just not going to even attempt blogging every two episodes like I used to. Don’t really have the time for it, sadly.

At any rate, episode 32 has probably been my favorite of the series thus far. There’s a point (hopefully) in a Rider series where you feel that things are really heading somewhere, that revelations are being made, and you just start to sense what endgame is starting to make itself felt. This was that for OOO, I think.

Reiko, Shinji and plunging into danger: Ryuki episode 2

Consider this a followup to that post I made on Shinji and the first episode of Kamen Rider Ryuki over a year ago.

Sat down and watched episodes 1 and 2 again today. Aside from being the episode where Shinji becomes Ryuki, episode 2 is also the true introduction to Reiko’s character. And it also just spells out what I mentioned in that previous post about Shinji rushing into things, clear as water, and how that is the reason he got involved in the Rider Battle in the first place.

Your only saving grace was you plunged into everything.
