Sorry but Gaming World doesn't deserve NetGame Crisis Saga due to their actions against its creator, and the scheduled release of the NGCS PV trailer was canceled due to the development hell the creator had encountered, and this forum/RM group doesn't deserve to have NGCS due to its anime-influenced nature. So Eriol Clowphengire (a.k.a.) Pipcaptor Hatsuya won't be here until further notice.

Also, the Chou Koemushi template won't be released here either, as ordered by the creator itself.

Kamen Rider Double (仮面ライダーW(ダブル), Kamen Raida Daburu, Kamen Rider W, Masked Rider Double) is the upcoming eleventh series in the Heisei period run of the Kamen Rider Series and the twentieth Rider series overall. It is set to premiere following the finale of Kamen Rider Decade on September 6, 2009, and airs alongside Samurai Sentai Shinkenger in TV Asahi.

In the ecologically-minded city of Futo ("Wind Capital"), there are many windmills and the people live in harmony. However, the Sonozaki Family sell mysterious USB memory sticks called Gaia Memories to criminals who use them to become monsters called Dopants, committing crimes with the police force powerless to stop them. The hardboiled (or rather half-boiled) detective Shotaro Hidari works with the mysterious Phillip who possesses the true Gaia Memory. Using their own Gaia Memories, Shotaro and Phillip use the Double Driver belts to transform and combine into Kamen Rider Double to fight the Dopant menace.

Shotaro Hidari (portrayed by Renn Kiriyama) is a self-dubbed "halfboiled detective" who dresses in the style from the 1970s. He works as a detective in the city of Fūto under his mentor Sokichi Narumi who died in an attempt to stop the Sonozaki Family by saving Phillip. Refusing let his mentor's death be in vain, becoming Sokichi's successor, Shotaro is bent on stopping the Dopants, forming the left half of Kamen Rider Double. Shotaro represents the physical aspect of Double.

Phillip (portrayed by Masaki Suda) is a mysterious young man who works as Shotaro's partner after he and Dectective Narumi save him from an experiment conducted by the Sonozaki Family. Possessing the true Gaia Memory, he can think like a supercomputer and can astral project his mind to directly interface with the knowledge of the Gaia Library for information on Dopants. He fights them with Shotaro, entering his body to form the right half of Kamen Rider Double. Phillip represents the mind of Double.

Akiko Narumi is Shotaro's boss and landlady at the Narumi Detective Agency. She has come to Futo from Osaka to continue in her father's place after he was killed. She serves as a personal assistant while on the job as well as keeping Shotaro on the right track. She has a black and white view of the world and tends to say "I never heard of it!" when she is edged to think otherwise. Akiko Narumi is portrayed by Hikaru Yamamoto by the way.

"Being a Rider"
So in Double, Philip and Shotaro have to wear the belt called DoubleDriver, and insert their respective Gaia Memories to transform, their default form's the Cyclone Joker. Actually, there are nine combinations for Double's different forms (and four are being revealed):

Cyclone + Joker : the standard form
Heat + Metal : this is like his shaolin dude form [seen ][/seen]The Adversaries:[/b]
Basing on the show, it seems that the Sonozaki Family will be the main adversaries of our two-manned Rider, since some of the members of that family had their own Gaia Memory to be a monster called Dopant.

My verdict:
So what's the catch? Well, Masked Rider Double (W) got a Sherlock Holmes + Inspector Gadget blend in this new series. Also, this will remind you of Ultraman Ace where 2 people are required to be one Masked Rider, and possibly watch this while playing "Two Become One" by Spice Girls ::LOL::.

What I strangely hate here is that Philip wears girly stuff, in spite of his bad-ass abilities throughout the series. So if anyone watched Kamen Rider Den-O, well... this series had some comic moments too.

The monster designs were kinda 2001'ish, but compensated with great CG effects though.

Another WTF this time, Kamen Rider W uses Gaia Memory USBs to transform by the way.

EDIT: There are no subtitled versions of this series released yet, I only watched it in its original language (RAW), and understood it by context.

Kamen Rider Decade (仮面ライダーディケイド, Kamen Raidaa Dikeido, Masked Rider DCD) is the title of the upcoming 2009 edition of the long-running Kamen Rider Series of tokusatsu dramas. Advertisements in Japanese magazines feature the title character amongst the title characters of the previous nine Heisei Kamen Rider Series. Decade, as its title suggests, is the tenth anniversary of the Heisei Rider Series, having begun with Kamen Rider Kuuga in 2000. It is scheduled to begin broadcast the week following the finale of Kamen Rider Kiva and will be featured in Super Hero Time alongside the 2009 edition of the Super Sentai Series.

- Toei Co, Ltd., has trademarked the name "仮面ライダーディケイド," "仮面ライダーDECADE," and "仮面ライダーディケイド\DECADE"

- Kamen Rider Decade is the upcoming Hesei Rider Series (10th work) from Toei, Tv-Asahi and Bandai

- Originally, because of the big deal the series is, with the guest starring riders from past Hesei, the series was originally supposed to start in Fall '09, with several months of break for the staff.

- This was a problem, because the staff can't have such a long break, it messes with the yearly schedule.

- The first half of the show is about a "Hesei Rider Card Game", where our main rider uses his cards (ala Digimon Tamers.), to fight monsters, and the like.

- The Second half of the show, starting in fall, will be a celebration of the 10th Anniversary, which will pit our lead rider against the Hesei Riders in battle. When he defeats the riders, he is able to use their powers, and possibily even transform into them (maybe something along the lines of Rockman or Kirby, but with a rider twist.) It's kind of actually like Sky Rider learning to fly, but with a bigger focus on the past riders, and of course, rider battles instead of the just an ordinary team up. Essentially, should it be true, the entire last half of the show, would be dedicated to them.

- The main rider, who will use the cards, is not named Kamen Rider Decade, his name will be revealed at some point, but this explains why the title was copyrighted so early- it isn't the name of the main rider, but of the property as a whole.

- There is rumored to be a use of archived footage for some of the rider battles, which would make sense, because some actors/suits will not be easy to get in the show. (I personally heard something about the Hibiki suit not being in too good'a shape.) Of course, anything new, feature the lead rider, or successive riders, will be new footage. And the guest stars themselves, will likely be recurring roles in the show. Those that are not, will have to be taken from the stock footage.
-The other possibility, beside Decade being essentially, 2-parts, is that another series will fill in the gap between january and september. What this other series would be, is anybody's guess, but the more likely situation is that Decade takes up the usual year.

- Decade seems to stand for "Data Card Dass."

- Decade slashes cards, stored in the holders in his belt. Seemingly, he can then transform into other riders' likenesses. In that same way, other riders' weapons can be used. (as well as his own) Again, the powers will span from Kuuga through Kiva.

- On Decade's chest, is a design pattern like Drake's dragonfly winged-chest armor, made to look like an "X". The X is also repeated on the back of the rider.

- A game-case is attached to the rider's thigh. It's possible this case is the gun/sword weapon, in a standard mode.

- Decade's first boss could be...Kamen Rider Garren!

- Due to the design of the main rider's suit in decade, a rumor is going around that the first portion of the show will feature the main rider before he gets his powers trying to defeat Garren. Garren's card will influence the main rider's suit design (and the suit is rumored to be a red-based stag beetle.) The rumors also say that Garren may even act as the main rider's guardian.

- The "Cards" actually seem to be combo moves:
Kuuga + Kiva= Kuuga Fever
Agito + Hibiki= Armored Agito
Kabuto + Faiz= Hyper Faiz
Blade + Ryuki = King Vento

-Rider 09 will fight againt monsters formed from data cards. He will be mechanically-themed as well. The data cards will likely be the Gunbaride rider series cards.

- His henshin belt will have an "opening gimmick" as well as lights.

- In the left holster of the belt, his weapon is stored. The weapon can transform from a gun to a sword. At the hilt of the sword, is what looks like a Day-Planner

- CardHolders are located on the right and left sides of his belt

- In his left holder, 2 or or more cards are stored which are from the Gunbaride series. Right now, it is only said he can use hesei era rider cards, but, when activated, the cards give the rider the powers of the rider on the card.

- In his right holder, items cards are stored, which are related to the rider's original powers. These cards are used supplementarily in combat. One of these, a Stag Beetle Mecha card, summons a Stag Beetle mech, which appears to attack the enemy.

-The color of the rider is somewhat red, and somewhat purple

-Name is still tentative, but was written in katakana

-The rider's mask is similar to Garren, although the "diamond" of the mask is absent.

Think of this Kamen Rider like... Insect-ed Rockman X with a bike! Also, this series was like "wear pink if your tough!".

What's the story?
Created as a series reboot of the franchise, Casshern Sins tells the story of a world where robots subjugated humanity after becoming self-aware. Their leader, Braiking Boss, rules over the world with an iron fist. One day, a mysterious girl named Luna is summoned by the people for salvation of mankind. Fearing that she can be a potential threat, Braiking sends three of his most powerful cyborg warriors to dispose of Luna: Casshern, Dio and Reda. Casshern, the strongest warrior, manages to track down and kill Luna. This triggers a cataclysmic event which brings about the end of the world. Hundreds of years later, the world's atmosphere now filled with poison, humanity is in danger of extinction, from most of the remaining population's inability to reproduce, and the threat of the robots.

Robots do not fare well either, as they constantly replace their body parts, fearing death as much as humans do: the corrosion of their bodies from rust, due to the poisonous environment. In this wretched time and place, Casshern, after disappearing since his murder of Luna, returns with no memory of who he is. As he embarks on a journey to find out the truth about himself, he defends the humans against the robots.

My blurb?
This is actually a reboot of its original 1973 version of Shinzo Ningen Kyasshan (Neo-Human Casshern, or just called as Casshern), and even its 2004 cinema adaptation, but with a drastic twist! They turned Casshern like a somewhat dynamic anti-hero.

This anime's graphics, well it's in the level of Code Geass & MegaMan Zero, even its battle scenes. Sound, well... it suited for the setting which sounded extremely dystopic and imperfect.

Kamen Rider Dragon Knight is the title of the American adaptation of Kamen Rider Ryuki, the twelfth installment in the Kamen Rider Series. It is being brought to television by Steve and Michael Wang. The series will start in February 2009 and play through the year, with a wide-release theatrical film expected to release the following year. Adness Entertainment chose to adapt Ryuki over the other Heisei Rider shows as it has a large number of characters (Ryuki had 13 Riders in total) as well as a female Rider. It is also the first tokusatsu adaptation of a Kamen Rider series since Saban's Masked Rider, which was adapted from Kamen Rider BLACK RX. Dragon Knight is to be shown on The CW Television Network during its The CW4Kids programming block.

The backstory of the show revolves around a group of twelve called the Kamen Riders, who are the protectors of Ventara, a dimension opposite to our own. In battle against the wicked General Xaviax, the Riders were defeated and ten of them were stripped of their Advent Decks, special card decks that allow whoever wields them to transform into Kamen Riders and utilize unique weapons and powers. While searching for his missing father, the main character - Kit Taylor - finds an Advent Deck that allows him to become Kamen Rider Dragon Knight. He eventually meets Len, who serves as Kamen Rider Wing Knight, and the pair join forces after Kit learns that General Xaviax has imprisoned his father in Ventara and is using him and the other humans his monsters abduct to gain power and rebuild his homeworld. Furthermore, Xaviax begins recruiting corrupt humans to become Kamen Riders and aid him in his goal.

HEY! What the heck is this anyway? Is this the same as the original?
Okay, the original, which is Kamen Rider Ryuki, is about 13 Kamen Riders (Masked Riders) on a gruesome BATTLE ROYALE in the Mirror World (direct flipped version of our world). Whoever wins in the Rider War can have his/her wish granted!

Now in the Wang brother's adaptation of Kamen Rider Ryuki, they changed the Mirror world into Ventara and the role of the Kamen Riders were kinda like guardians of that dimension. The real antagonist in the original was also a Kamen Rider, in a name of Odin, whereas in this version, it was an alien called General Xaviax.

The common denominator of the two series were the usage of Advent Decks, Advent Monsters and the enemy monsters used!


(Kamen Rider Ryuki names and terms) = (Kamen Rider Dragon Knight names and terms)

Shinji Kido (from Kamen Rider Ryuki) = Kit Taylor
Ren Akiyama = Len
Ryuki = Dragon Knight
Knight = Wing Knight

My Nitpicks!
The Wang Brothers didn't change the way how Masked Riders were called. It turned out that they took a different way, away from SABAN's shitworks (thanks for ruining Masked Rider RX, jerkholes!). They called Masked Riders as Kamen Rider, as in they're addressed like their original Japanese name!

I watched Kamen Rider Dragon Knight one time and it turned out that yup, this American Kamen Rider rendition twisted the Kamen Rider tropes. Instead of expecting a typical Kamen Rider hero to "I'll destroy X Organization with my RIDER KICK", it turned out to be like this: "I just want to save my father, not saving the world" type.

Oh yeah, this one can be seen in YouTube!
