We are mere days away from the first Kamen Rider of the Reiwa Era and a plethora of new images have just been released showing fans even more details about the upcoming new hero- Kamen Rider Zero-One!
Zero-One lives in a world where androids known as HumaGears live alongside humanity. But when terrorists of the MetsubouJinrai.net use their technical skills to hijack HumaGear, Kamen Rider Zero-One must protect humanity from the dangerous attacks!
The powers of Zero-One come from Progrise Keys, devices encoded with animal DNA charged by the Hiden Zero-One Driver. Kamen Rider Zero-One’s default form, Rising Hopper is shown in full detail documenting its various capabilities.
Three more forms for Kamen Rider Zero-One are detailed in these new scans-
*Biting Shark for underwater enemies
*Flying Falcon for airborne attacks
*Flaming Tiger with fire-based abilities.
When HumaGear run amok, agents of the Artificial Intelligence Military Service (generally known as A.I.M.S) will step in to take them down. The most advanced A.I.M.S. agents are the Rider Duo- Kamen Rider Vulcan & Kamen Rider Valkyrie! Vulcan’s signature Progrise Key is Shooting Wolf while Valkyrie uses Rushing Cheetah. Vulcan is also shown demonstrating the Punching Kong Key in these new scans.
Kamen Rider Zero-One begins on September 1 2019! Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on this remarkable new series!
New forms/keys- "Biting Shark" and "Punching Kong."
Not really fond of the way the way the monsters of the week look. They're a bit samey, and kind of simple looking
I kinda hate how every form change of Zero-One is slapped onto the yellow base form, the colors combinations are terrible looking.
If they'd completely remove the yellow in favor of each forms main color it would look a lot better IMO.
Also, I don’t know how the driver works exactly, but you can't insert two keys at the same time, right? With Ex-Aid it makes sense that the armor was worn on top of the base suit as both Gashats were used together, but I don’t see the same thing working with the Zero-One belt.
Or do you get special sounds when you use another key after the hopper one?
Of course, this logic would fall apart completely if he ever transforms directly into one of the forms other than Rising Hopper. In an ideal world with an unlimited budget, I'm guessing if he turned into Flying Falcon first, then scanned Rising Hopper, the fuchsia would sit behind the yellow/green. As it is, I suspect the show's creators will fudge it.
God Biting Shark looks great. All the forms are lovely looking. Really big fan of the Kaijin too. I don't know how to do quotes so I'll explain this.
He scans the key, folds it out, puts it in. To change forms, take out the first key so repeat process with new one.
I'm glad Zi-O is over because that didn’t do much for me either, but Zero-One really needs to step up in the story and character department for me to care. Because neither the suits nor the gimmicks are all that great so far.
But hey, the first episode isn't even out, it takes time to properly form an opinion; I need to see this stuff in the context of its narrative first.
I think this show is taking a page from Build on how the form changes originated from defeated monsters. Love the Tiger one.
Looking at these more closely, I don't like the triple layered look of Valkyire and Vulcan's helmets.
It also doesn't help that the masks look really plain. Look at all the nice red panel lining on Punching Kong's helmet as it suddenly stops and gets replaced by... just a boring white surface and blue eyes. For me it creates this nagging feeling like there's a more interesting face design hiding underneath the mask.
