Luckily I have found wifi where I am at right now so for a quick post I want to talk about the new main rider, Wizard! It has been revealed today and even though Saido won't be real I am really happy to see this new rider. First I love the mostly everything about the design. I can clearly see a warlock theme thanks to the overcoat like look. One thing that I focus more on are the eyes of this rider. They looks very different from the usual rider eyes, but the bug theme is still alive. Also this rider will be using the form gimmick like Double and OOO. The base form is called Flame Style. How they will use the gimmick this time there will be rings. It's more like a combination of the Double and Fourze gimmicks. There will be forms, but the rings also can make different attacks. Going on with this is the belt and it's not bulky like Fourze's, but the hand simple looks odd. First I think this transformation would probably be quick since it's just need a hand scan or something like that. Switching weapons and attacks around should be easy for this rider. It's just the hand looks out of place, but it won't be distracting though unlike Fourze's gigantic mess of a belt. This is surprisingly a simple design, but it looks great. A nice touch that will be around is a red cape and capes can look awesome if done right. Also I like the chain on his side with the many rings he has right now. The helmet keeps a good bug theme and the red and silver works well. The chest pops out with it's red color and the overall black suit makes many more things pop out. Overall the design is good, the color scheme makes you notice many things about the suit, but the belt looks a little odd.
The weapons of this rider keep the hand theme which can be seen on the weapon. It's a gun that can also chance into a sword and this has been said by Linkara, but guns that can turn into swords are awesome! We also see two of the rings. The first one can make Wizard grow one of his body parts to attack the enemy. Then there is the copy ring which can make Wizard make clones of himself. Now I can really see how the Saido rumors started. I am looking into Naruto for my explanation because there is the clones and a character who can enlarge himself. So maybe someone heard this and thought of ninjustu. The magic theme works better with this though I think because of the rings which then makes me think of MAR (an underrated manga and anime series).
Overall I am full of excitement for this new rider. Fourze wasn't the best looking since he looked more goofy. This rider looks more serious and has good details. I like how they used the Wizard concept and I was expecting something else, but the design is much better than I thought. The concept of rings are really good because of their size and the hero can keep wearing them even out of suit (not sure about that). Even though the belt is weird, it's still very simple and reminds me of a standard rider belt. It's doesn't have many switches or inserts for many things. I really like how the rings will be used and I wonder if more than one ring can be used at a time. All I hope is that the weapons will be used with good variety unlike the Fourze series which is something I haven't talked about in my post for thoughts on Fourze. Also to the people who are comparing him to other riders and saying he ripped them off, just stop. First of all, all riders are under the same company so there is no ripping off. If something looks similar high chance it can be for referencing and you now how hard it is for anything to be original today. All I am saying to those fans is that just because he looks like other riders doesn't mean there should be hate. Kamen Rider Wizard will appear September 2nd and he will appear in Fourze's summer movie.
