It’s time once again for Let’s Watch Wednesdays to return to TokuNation! We’ve got another round of episodes with Kamen Rider Den-O!
Sakurai Yuuto. 2 men share this name, or rather 1 man from two times. One travels through the shadows of the past, the other has arrived in the present. With his own Ticket, his own belt, and his own train of time, the Zero Liner. Aided by the lovable Imagin Deneb, Yuuto has become Kamen Rider Zeronos! But what contract have they made? What powers lie in the Zeronos Cards? And what consequence does their use have? We only know one thing to start, he is fairly strong.
Den-O Fun Fact #7
Ryutaros, the happy go lucky child like Imagin of the Den-Liner crew is next on our list. Ryutaros is based on the legend of Taro, the Dragon Boy. Taro is said to have been a gluttonous lazy child who lived with his grandmother as a young boy. He didn’t help his fellow farmers, or do his chores, he merely played and ate. But one day he found out from his grandmother that his long lost mother, thought to be dead, had actually been turned into a dragon many years before and now slumbered at the bottom of a lake.
So Taro set out on a quest to find his long lost mother. Along his journey to find her Taro encounters all manner of vile creatures and demons of myth. At one point he’s given a cup of sake that once drunk, gives him the strength of 100 men. But only when he helps people, not when he’s being selfish. He learns to become a farmer, properly, and appreciate the land and the gifts it bears. By the end of his journey Taro become a self sacrificing hero of myth. Though Ryutaros has an overt dragon theme his carefree attitude and general laziness are more like the early version of Taro. But just as Taro one day became a selfless hero because of his journeys, Ryutaros will also.
