Rider Break! Episode 18: Rider War Part 1

At long last, Igadevil & Rider Break! return for the gajillionth time to bring you the overdue epic mess of a review for Heisei Riders vs. Shōwa Riders: Kamen Rider Taisen feat. Super Sentai... less than 48 hours before the movie comes out on home video! It's a Rider Break! so big, we had to Rider Break! it in half! Exclamation points!

In This Episode: 

 Rider Break! returns for the second third fourth hundredth millionth bajillionth gajillionth time, utterly failing to produce any new episodes since October 2013 January 2014! Basically in the last few months I have finished one job, started another, moved, had two severe colds and various other injuries, and done a lot of things which aren't as painful but are time-consuming. Also several other movies have come out, including Gaim's. Real life is brutal kids, never grow up.

 I'm back to flying solo this week, but fear not! I hope to have many more guests pop up in the near future! Just as soon as many more episodes start popping up in the near future!

 It's the first half of a long, long, long review of the biggest Rider movie in a while, which was the focus of last episode, will be the focus of next episode, and will probably be the focus of a future episode! There are spoilers for everything under the sun (after a point), including this movie, previous movies, multiple Rider series... heck, probably even some things that aren't Kamen Rider! Part 1 of 2.

Episodes Notes:

 Music used includes:

"Let's Go!! Rider Kick 2006" by Hiroshi Fujioka (excerpt) Get it on
"Dragon Road 2014" by Akira Kushida & Kamen Rider Girls (excerpt) Get it on
The eyecatch music cue from Kamen Rider

 Not much to say other than what's in the show itself. As mentioned, this was recorded some time after seeing the movie (and I saw it quite a few times, after a very long break between the first and second time.) So there are a lot of details that may be incorrect or left out. But before editing, this thing wound up being nearly 4 hours long, and even then has been cut down to about 3 hours and 20 minutes split into two halves, so there still is a LOT of talking about this film.

 For laughs though, make a drinking game out of how many times:

- A sentence ends on "...and stuff like that"
- "You know" is used as a bridge between two thoughts.
- I stop talking about the actual movie plot to talk about something tangentially related, like the history of X-Rider's transformation or my own theory about the rest of the Faiz cast.
-A character's reaction is described as being "What the he-" or some variations thereof.
-I put off a thought by saying "but I'll get to that..."

 And as mentioned, this is just Part 1! The rest of the movie, including the infamous ending, will be covered in the next episode (which will go up shortly after this one.)


00:00 - Watch those speakers!

24:22 - Spoilers Ahead!
