REQUIRED WATCHING AND LOOPING:
Kamen Rider W – Nobody’s Perfect
As per contractual obligations, I am supposed to cover a show a season, at least. I think I was supposed to write about Nyarlko, but the-
OH LAWKS NO.
GAH NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU T_T
I guess it was a very, very bad idea to be watching Kamen Rider W at the same time (and looping the above song at least 5 times) as I was watching this.
Oh lawks why Mami T_T
I am now in a mild state of DEPRESSION.
Shut up she is beautiful T_T (pixiv)
Recap of the story so far: Evil witches cause very bad things to happen, and Kyuubey recruits magical girls to help fight them by granting them one wish. Said magical girls have to risk life, limb and other things to protect the world, which doesn’t know about them and will probably forget about them. (Oh wait, reminds me of a great friend I do know of.) Madoka and her friend Sasyaka are scouted by Kyuubey to be more meat for the grinder, while Homura tries to prevent that from happening. Kyuubey is hurt and calls out to Madoka and Sayaka, who rescue his evil yet cute butt from danger while getting trapped in creepy art-deco land when Mami shows up to defeat the witch. Stuff happens, and Mami shows them wthe life of a magical girl. Also Mami DIES. T_T
What do you mean the attraction is purely physical it is not true (pixiv)
I am lousy at reading the Faustian undertones of the whole show, to be honest. All I know is that it’s Urobouchi Gen writing, and it’s already grim enough to make me want Warhammer 40K. Also Kyuubey is EVIL AND-
FINAL ATTACK RIDE. D-D-D-D-D-D-DECADE!!!!
*Dimension Kicks All The Kyuubeys!
The attraction is not purely physical! (pixiv)
Ahem, where was I? Oh yes. Grimdark magical girl tale. It’s intriguing and sad at the same time. Everyone who knows who Urobouchi Gen is should have braced themselves for something dark, no matter what he promised, but it didn’t help too much. Mami’s death was too sudden, too sad, and Kyuubey’s callousness doesn’t help it on-
JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOKER! MAXIMUM DRIVE!
*JOKER RIDER KICKS KYUUBEY
SHE IS SO RONERY, SHE MUST HAVE SOMEONE TO BE HER FRIEND T_T (pixiv)
Kyuubey? Well, we know he’s either an evil trickster or Satan himself. In fact, I think he’s the one creating the Witches so that he can claim more girls’ souls for himself or his dark master. In fact, i think he’s actually the Black Emperor himself, Nyalahotep himse-
*cue TIME JUDGED ALL, TAJADORU SCANNING CHARGES KYUUBEY
Even if she does have all the curves in the right places…(pixiv)
As for the link to the song all the way at the top of the post? Well, think about it. Everyone has regrets, shame, mistakes, or even people wronged and are forced to live with the consequences. In Mami’s case, in exchange for having a second shot at life, she has to live with crushing loneliness. I think she does blame herself for not being to save her parents as well, which is probably the worst thing that could happen to someone. I mean, she cries herself to sleep every night. If Kyuube-
1 2 3 MAXIMUM RIDER POWER. HYPER KICK.
*HYPER KICKS KYUUBEY.
She is very, very moe. Also, giant gun hee. (pixiv)
I am mad, sad, and really, really angry at the show so far, but it’s been rather enjoyable, as long as Kyuubey doesn’t tr-
FINAL FORM RIDE. D-D-D-D-DOUBLE.
*TRIPLE RIDER KICKS KYUUBEY
Ahem, where was I? Oh yeah, end of post. Oh well, have some extras.
Homura is very, very moe. (pixiv)
TOUMA NO YOUR IMAGIN BREAKER WILL NOT WORK ON KYUUBEY ONLY ALL THE HEISEI KAMEN RIDERS CAN DEFEAT HIM (pixiv)
I think I’ll be able to see you next week, I think.
PS: Everyone go watch all the Kamen Rider shows in existence now. OOO is currently airing and is ace, Double ended and is pretty good, Kabuto has a massive jerk as a main character, and I dunno about the others. Saban’s Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight is NOT Kamen Rider Ryuki. Also delicious Decade.
