Can't wait, though it sucks Fourze is ending. I'm really enjoying it and the final episodes are ramping up to be awesome.

Wizard sounds interesting enough, though.

The descriptions of the weapons and such I'd read before made me interested in Wizard, but, I gotta say... the design looks like Kamen Rider W rejected designs. The helmet looks like a modified version of Accel, and the trench coat was on W's original design.

The concept seemed nice but I'm a bit disappointed with the outfit. Perhaps it'll grow on me much like Fourze did. I'm hoping the story won't be lighthearted - I've viewed too much of that to really enjoy them anymore.

I'm more disappointed with the driver. After W, OOO, and Fourze, I liked the concept of plugging in and switching things on it. This looks like it's just going to involve putting your hand on it, no actual physical pieces to switch.

I think this time he changes rings, looks like he's got a bunch of them hanging off his belt.

I dunno--as much as I loved the mix-and-match aspects of the W/OOO/Fourze drivers, things were starting to get a little out-of-hand, what with the three O-Medals and the four Astro Switches. I think they couldn't surpass having four switches on one belt at once and decided to go back to basics.

The design strikes me as unique--Riders don't do capes or coats very often. I'd expect Wizard to have more of a hands-off style of combat, given his name, but heck, Riders need to sell DX weapons...

I'm looking forward to Wizard, but he's got a lot to live up to: Fourze is just so much fun.

Some people are feeling the rider belts are becoming comIplicated. Lots of USB drives, lot's of medals, lot's of switches. I wonder where they carry them all...

They're much funner to play with/collect, though.

Still, liking the different forms he has. Hurricane Style is my favorite, and I guess Fire is his default element.

You forgot Decade. Anyway yeah I agree with you, I really prefer the rider putting some things on his belt. Wizard belt looks like a turntable to me Shocked

Anyway on another note, the name Wizard looks plain to me...they should have invented another word or something like... Vizard?
