gekidasa: (Shinji peeks)
So this was posted, and I'm bored.

The one that was your first: Kabuto

The one with the best theme song: Ryuki

The one that made you laugh the most: I don't know, but Ryuki has the funniest scenes to me (Shinji in jail, Shinji putting out an iamginary fire in the OreJournal offices, etc etc). Den-O is obviously much more of a comedy series as a whole, but really, those Shinji moments are hilarious.

The one that made you cry the most: Oh. Hmm. Blade. (I'm judging this by the finale, and to be fair, I was too shellshocked by Ryuki's end to even think about crying)

The one that surprised you: Agito, right around the Akatsuki-Go episode it made an unexpected turn and became so much more than I expected it to be.

The one that didn't meet your expectations: Amending this response, because the single thing in Kamen Rider where the fact that my expectations and the actual story put on screen were such different things that my ability to be objective about it was completely compromised is the last Decade movie. The caveat is that I really enjoyed Decade the series for what it was, so I'm talking especifically about the last movie.

As an overall series, it's W, because it didn't seem particularly interested in classic Rider tropes to the point where it was almost more like live-action shounen anime, and the Rider tropes are a huge part of why I like the franchise. I did actually like what I saw of it, with the exception of Akiko. Admitedly I also lost interest early on and never actually finished watching, so... yeah. :Dv

The one with the best relationship: Depends on what kind of relationship? Best bros = Ryuki (Ren & Shinji). Best ship for slashy tinhattery = Kabuto (Hoppers)*. Best canon romantic ship (as these things go in KR) = Ryuki (Kitaoka/Reiko)**. And as for most interesting relationships between the various characters... well, Faiz.

*Actually, I tend to NOT be into slash for Kamen Rider. There's only two slash ships I actively fangirl in Kamen Rider (Hoppers and Daiki/Yusuke), and a couple more that I think are cute but that I'm not that invested in (Takumi/Kiba and Kenzaki/Kotaro).
** I know that Yuuto/Airi is like this very romantic, sad, two ships passing in the night thing, so Den-O should be more of a contender... but I haven't actually FINISHED Den-O. And well, the Kitaoka/Reiko dynamic is a pairing trope I've always been a sucker for.

The one with the best fight scenes/action: Kabuto.

The one with the best suit design/transformation scenes: Kabuto overall

ETA: Kabuto for suit designs, but Ryuki for transformations. It's not that I think the Ryuki transformations are ~the awesomest shit ever~, necessarily, but the Mirror World element was something that caught my interest early on, so there you go. I do wish they'd developed that aspect more.

The one that you compare all the others to: Amending this response also. If the question were backwards, OOO is the one I compare to all the others, in the sense that it borrows rather liberally from a lot of Heisei series. (On the other hand, if the question is which series set the bar for me, which is not the same thing as 'what I compare all others to', then that's Ryuki).

Name five kickass female characters.

Off the top of my head:

5. Diana Barrigan - White Collar

4. River Song - Doctor Who

3. Misaki - Kamen Rider Kabuto

2. Shiraishi Mako - Shinkenger

gekidasa: (Default)
...I got behind +_+

Day 06: Character who would probably be your rival

Not so much that I'd see HER as a rival, necessarily, as that I think she'd certainly see me as one, because if I was part of the Ryuki world, I would most likely be at web designer at Ore Journal (Ryuki is personally amusing because I actually at a news/media company as a web/graphic designer, so it's... about as close as toku will ever get to being sorta true something that I can relate to in RL, although honestly my worplace is more like Decade's Atashi Journal than the original Ore Journal). Anyway, I would be a web designer, which would mean the line between my job and Shimada's would be fuzzy to start with. Add to that the fact that Shimada tends to kinda view other women in general as competition, and I'm sure she at least would see me as a rival. :D;;

Day 07: Character you have most in common with

Well, okay, Reiko is a LOT more serious business than I ever am; I tend to not take things all that seriously and am a lot more laid back, but part of why I've always Reiko is that I can certainly relate to the fact that she's a young professional single woman with a very low tolerance for BS, particularly when it comes from guys.

Day 08: Character you look like the most

I REALLY don't look anything like anyone in Ryuki. :D;;
gekidasa: (Troll)
Day 05: Character you’d like as your child

Er... this question doesn't really make sense in the context of Ryuki. :D/
gekidasa: (Mori Kanna)
Day 04: Character you’d like to go shopping with

Miho, because I like her style, and because she'd be a lot of fun to hang out with.
gekidasa: (Goro-chan)

Day 03: Character you’d date:
Goro-chan \:D/

To me, this is a no brainer.

I mean, first of all, he cooks!

Not only does the man cook, he cooks really really well.

This is a huge deal to me, as far as potential boyfriends go, because I don't really cook much at all.

And he does other household chores and is really good at it, and it's not that I want a maid, I just think it's important that a guy be able to clean up after himself and help out, and not expect you to be a surrogate mommy.

And he's pretty low-maintenance, which is awesome, in my opinion. And he's got a killer sense of style. And if ever there should be the need for it, dude can kick major ass.

(Okay, so there may or may not be alleged petty criminal activity in his past... nobody's perfect, and even if that's the case he seems pretty reformed).

And to top it all off? He's a real sweetheart.

Come on, seriously, Goro-chan is like, the perfect boyfriend. \:D/

Mini picspam \:D/ )

Day 02: Your least favorite character

There's very few characters I actively dislike in Ryuki, but... Tojo Satoru/Tiger. Thing is that in real life if there is one thing I can't abide, it's a self-righteous zealot, and that's exactly what Tojo is. Hence, can't stand the dude.

Ganked this 30 day meme from [ profile] greatfountain \:D/

Anyway, you have to pick a fandom, and I pick Kamen Rider Ryuki, because what else am I gonna pick?

Day 01: Your favorite character

And since I've pretty much talked ad nasuem before about how much I love Kitaoka and why, have picspam instead! )

For the other 29 days )

LJ ATE HALF MY POST.  I can't rewrite all that. ><

First of all, in the comments to last year's answers, [ profile] dimmie said:

I like the alternative of the prospective of watching sensei go crazy with Rider faggotry a lot better. \:D/

...That comment is really fucking funny to come across now since I did in fact do exactly that: go crazy with Rider faggotry. :D;;

Now then...

2009 in fandom \:D/ )

Happy 2010, everyone!
gekidasa: (Natsumi >> Tsukasa)

Name a character from one of my fandoms, and I'll give you either
(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon,
(b) a reason he/she sucks,
(c) a reason he/she is awesomecakes,
(d) five things that never happened to that character or
(e) five people that character never fell in love with and why
You pick the character. I pick the letter.
gekidasa: (Ma-kun lips)
List 10 of your favorite characters from different fandoms Kamen Riders, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, and if they're so inclined, to draw conclusions about you based on the patterns they've spotted.
  • Super Lawyer Kitaoka (Ryuki)
  • Yaguruma (Kabuto)
  • Wagatomo KaGAAAmi (Kabuto)
  • Kenzaki (Blade)
  • Hajime (Blade)
  • Hikawa (Agito)
  • Tsukasa (Decade)
These are not necessarily in order. I don't think I COULD put them in order, actually :D

Not really part of the meme, but my thoughts on each under cut )
