If you ever think “man, anime hair makes NO sense”; remember Naoko Takeuchi, creator of Sailor Moon, wrote that when Bandai made a doll of her character Chibi-Usa, she stared at it, turning it around repeatedly saying “I can’t believe this can exist in 3D”. Even the authors don’t know what the fuck it’s doing
Kamen Rider Fourze is the single best piece of superhero mass media in the past ten years. And considering that the past ten years also brought us stuff like The Dark Knight, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and that Avengers movie that everybody likes, that’s no small thing for me to say.
As for how I know this — and why Des here refers to it as a painful subject — it’s because the final episode of Kamen Rider Fourze made me cry harder than anything else I’ve ever seen. That last episode of Brave and the Bold put tears in my eyes, yes, but Fourze had me sobbing so hard that my neighbors started building an ark and gathering up all the beasts of the land in pairs lest my tears cause a flood that wiped away the sins of man.
