This guy there, Captain Nira, I salute you. He has in my books, become the top sub villain in Kamen Rider. He is pure asshole material. He goes his way out to make life difficult for the kamen rider and special task force… And to top it off, he doesnt even need to get brain washed! He is “evil” because he wants to stay in power which is your typical licking the boots of powerful forces and he is the kind that will switch sides on a snap if a better deal comes up.

Seriously, This dude can ACT WELL. It brings smile to my face when the production of Kamen Rider has been improving the past few years (since Decade i reckon). Even the new actor (our beloved Shinosuke aka Drive) can act relatively well. I really hate this guy but at the end of day i know he is just human and although selfish, he is looking out for himself.
Our big villain, 001, has in fact achieved ultimate evolution and he turns, golden. Fuck. This is fucking lazy evolution. 001 don’t even look at different !! A paint job =/= evolution! it is just spec up!
If you have been watching the past few episodes (30 – 34), there is kind of a twist to it. So warning, SPOILERS AHEAD.
I seriously thought he ACTUALLY turned good. But i was wrong. Will reveal the plot in a few more episodes time, don’t want to spoil too much 😛
So Shinosuke died (I was actually happy for a moment, thinking that Chase might step up to be the main KR instead) but alas, he revived. Like a super saiyan that comes back from death, he will be powered up.
At this point, I can see why Drive make sense as a kamen rider. You just can’t do epic revival scenes like this with a bike.
And also, you can do more mojo to a car and make drive potentially one of the “strongest” rider in terms of firepower.
When i saw the preview, i thought type tridoron was Kiroko transforming into kamen rider drive >..<.
Type tridoron is a beautiful design (i’m assuming this will be Drive final form), however, no design so far can beat KR Gaim Shogun form but this is the step in the right direction, where you design cool looking final forms instead of stupid looking ones. If you remembered Decade final form, it is ugly as hell. Fourze although not as bad, it could be improved.
With the show being in episode 34 and we are in mid June, I would say the show will end the year with a bang. So far, there doesn’t seem *touches wood, throws salt over shoulders* to be any major hiccups. It looks like Brain & Heart will be our final villain in the end… It will be nice to see a fully deck out Heart fighting Drive.
By the way, I hate how using the finisher cannon will revert Drive back to which ever Type car he last slot in (speed, wild, technic or formula). So for example, when he finishes off 001, he inserted Type Speed + Type Tridoron into cannon which he ended up reverting back to type Speed when the cannon finishes the blast.
But this is just a minor issue. Not sure if type tridoron needs recharging or not after Drive uses the finisher move. But I’m sure they will talk about it soon, or maybe not.
Now please, spec up KR Chase! He needs a power similar to Dead heat. Although Type Dead Heat is looking underpowered at the moment.
With that, i shall leave you whilst i wait for the next episode of Drive.
