The designs are cool, but I'll never get over the new Riders not having compound bug-eyes.

It looks childish and toyetic and silly, and that's why I'm intrigued.

The writer for the show is Yuya Takahashi, the chief script writer on last year's Lupin III. Nifty.

When I saw this on /m/ a while back I thought this was either something similar to Kamen Rider G for promotional material or some parody (mainly because I avoid generals), but the next series? Shocked Let alone the 45th anniversary!? Well.... At least they're thinking outside the box. This reminds me that I need to get around to watching the Drive movie and Ghost.

Ugh, that color scheme. The first thing to pop in my head was Kamen Rider cool-Aid

Only took them 15 years to kill KR again.

Really gotten off track, haven't they? I really wish we could get more stuff like Gaim. For such a stupid theme, that's the best writing this show's had in years.

I doubt we'll get anything on the level of Drive or OOO for a while, but then again Drive is the only Kamen Rider entry better than Skyrider, which is saying a lot seeing as I've seen the franchise in its entirety from the 1971 series to Drive. Gaim was a set back, but not as a step back as W was. At least the boring soap opera style that was used from Kuuga to Kiva's first half is finally in the toilet so I doubt we'll get something as awful as Kabuto or The Next any time soon.

They've done that since Ryuki (which supposedly was a metal heroes concept).

The franchise survived Ryuki, Blade, Kabuto, W, and Gaim, as long as Toei actually sticks to the theme and not skip on it (looking at you, Megaranger) it'll be fine and we'll get another Decade. Cool

Also main writer for Donten ni Warau and main writer/creator of the original concept for Luck and Logic too.

again its funny people judge just by the character designs just like Gaim before where they think its going to be goofy due to the fruit warriors theme despite Gen Urobuchi a.k.a. Urobutcher's name attached to it & the fruit theme is revealed to be also a religious symbolism (one which is the fruit of knowledge of the Adam & Eve) then people think Ghost is going to be a dark series as it involves dead people but it turns out (to me especially) the atmosphere feels super cartoony as heck that Den-O seems normal by standards, also the historical figures were downplayed & reduced to disposable toy gimmicks.

The game theme is interesting but Kamen Rider design is awful. They decided to slap SD gundam eyes and pink color suit. Seriously why pink? Even Decade's pink look cooler than this.

Seriously? OOO was pretty boring in retrospect, with Ankh being the only worthwhile thing. W, Gaim, and Fourze were great. I'm looking forward to seeing how ExAid stacks up.

Actually, Decade was magenta, which is officially defined as "a purplish red," so technically he'd be a red (most people consider magenta a shade of pink, though).
