    Yeah. It just wouldn't be the same. It wouldn't be an anniversary special of "Kamen Rider Double" it would just be some extra material with Joker.

    I'm getting Guyver vibes due to the antenna design. Now I'll be disappointed if he's not the star Kamen Rider when we actually reach 2071 much like i'll be disappointed if we don't get a ninja rider in 2022 ;)

    You know what would be hilarious, if we actually got the exact Ninja Rider series in 2022 =D.

    We're so close!

    Yeah, I'd also like to see Kamen Rider Shinobi for real. Although I think they'd have to redesign the costumes and remake the "episodes" in the spinoff special, since the original costumes were remodels of previous Rider costumes, and if it were the real deal, it would rate a more original design.

    Meanwhile, I'm amused that they're doing a future Rider from 2071, because I was originally going to set Tangent Knights in 2071, but decided to go with 2046 instead.

    Why did you pick 2046?

    2071 would've been more believe-able IMO.

    The 75th anniversary of Kamen Rider as opposed to the 100th. The lead character is a major otaku who's constantly dropping references to Showa- and Heisei-era tokusatsu and anime, and I figured her familiarity with those shows would be more credible if it were closer to the present. It also lets me keep the slang and cultural references more contemporary.

    As for the credibility of the super-armor and other technological advances, that's all explained within the story. Indeed, it's kind of the driving mystery of Book 1.

    With the more visceral look of the suit and the spiderwebs coming off his body, this looks like the closest Rider has gotten to Shin (90s version) since that movie. The vibe of everything is closer to Guyver than Kamen Rider, but in a way that absolutely works.

    Something tells me it's about to get gritty and there will koolaid/blood spewing from monsters.

    Are the "Netflix Power Rangers Universe" the first productions completely without "SuperSentai" footage, 90s and 2017 movies aside?

    • Still disappointed we've never gotten the Power Rangers version of Uchu Sentai KyuRanger.
    • Really wish we'd get the 2017 movie cast in more movies or mini series. Like them very much.

    That's the impression I get. Not sure how I feel about that, frankly. And will they really be creating something entirely original, or will they be doing yet another reboot of the Mighty Morphin Rangers, like the movie and the comics?

    Just to split hairs, there have been occasional individual episodes of Power Rangers shows without any Sentai footage to speak of, though I assume that by "productions" you mean entire series. The first episode of Beast Morphers was all original footage, and the first episode of Dino Fury had only one brief Sentai clip as part of a flashback. But of course they did reuse Sentai costumes and props.
