ATATATATA!!!!!! 2-HIT COMBO!!!!!!
Over a year ago, I teased my OOO review along with it's movie, but I haven't seen the series yet. Now I have, what do I think of it (especially since people thought it belonged on the Top 5 Must See Kamen Rider Series over Wizard, but you need to understand, Wizard has a special place in my heart (I won't explain why now, but keep assured, something like that is coming))? It's pretty good, don't see myself putting it over Wizard, but It makes the perfect companion show to the AMAZING GOKAIGER!!!! In all seriousness, OOO is a great series for those who liked Gokaiger back in the day.
From ancient times, Creatures called Greeed created Yummies from people's desires, A King who goes by the name OOO trapped them in a Tomb for over 800 years, but They are released from their slumber in 2010. One of the greeds ankh has his arm go on a dying police officer, and he becomes the new Ankh. A homeless traumatized young man known as Eiji Hino meets Ankh, and ankh gives him 3 Medals and a OOO Driver to become the new OOO. Kougami Foundation joins the fight against the Greeed and so does Akira Date/Kamen Rider Birth. Over the course of the series Eiji and his friends learn more about the Greeed, Get more toyetic powers and weapons, and learn shocking revelations about each other... Also there's goofy undertones throughout the entire series, but it does have a dark turn as it gets further in the story. This series has a little bit of everything, and all rider fans can find something to enjoy, whether it'd be the humor, the creature designs, or the dark turns.
THE SHOW YOU'RE WAITING FOR!!!! COUNT THE MEDALS 1, 2, AND 3!!!!!
Eiji/ Kamen Rider OOO's a very everyman type rider, he can be goofy, he can be traumatized, he can be whatever the story wants him to be at the moment. The combo switching power offers a lot of possibilities (Taka, Tora, Batta! TaToBa, TaToBa, TaToBa!!!!). Akira Date/Kamen Rider Birth starts out smug, and arrogant, but he drops the attitude and helps out OOO in the second half of the series. Ankh is sort of the anti ally of the group, smug, selfish, but he provides OOO with his medals. But the one who really steals the show is Kousei Kougami who all I need to tell you about him is "SUBARASHII!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!" The Greeed are essentially based of the concept of desire. They create creatures called Yummies out of people. It's really brutal when they get hit because coins fly everywhere. These Kaijin are interesting since it teaches kids not to be selfish all the time...
GIVE ME ENERGY!!!! COUNT THE MEDALS 1, 2, AND 3!!!!
It's really good, The music is whimsical when it needs to be, the costumes are really good, but I could review all the heisei era series, and Bandai still won't make that Mcfarlane Style Toyline with Kamen Rider Kaijin! The riders look good too, not just the Greed and Yummies, especially Birth, Whose based off of Gashapon/capsule toy machines (Fast Fact: the rider machines for the series are essentially transforming vending machine bikes, and the robot animals are based off of drink cans). This series made some great toys based off the powers and weapons seen in the series...
OOO! OOO! OOO! OOO!!!!!!!!! COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a fun ride throughout, recommended for all rider fans, but would I put it over Wizard? Maybe... Wizard had more of a place in my heart, but OOO was the overall better series, so your call, also as I said I still have like 8 Rider Series I would like to see, and 1 I have yet to complete. At any rate I give this series 3.5 Birth Drivers out of 4.
ANYTHING GOES!!!!! (...) LIFE GOES ON!!!!!
Duck Nukem: Chicken Cutlet, really?
A. Yoshi: DUDE, YOU HAD 200,000 YEN!!!! What the hell did you spend it all on that wasn't KFC!?
Yoshiette 1: We spent half of it on Pachinko Parlors, a good portion of it on Gashapon machines, a lot of it on video games, and we spent 25,000 of it on a strip club that Joe-san wanted to go to.
DN: You at least got to show us what you got, right?
YE1: Actually It was to heavy to fly us back with, remember, I flew like Superman, and I had to carry Joe and a suitcase we shared!!!!
DN: YOU HAD ONE FREAKING JOB, AND YOU WERE SELFISH THROUGHOUT!!!!!
YE1: Look at the bright side, I got home earlier and was able to secure seats for The Force Awakens Tonight...
