This is an archive of my Kamen Rider OOO live watch thread, from Twitter. Although it's on the long side (192 posts), the thread is mostly screenshot-focused because I was so infatuated by Ankh's extremely photogenic face, but I do have one thought or two. Watching OOO became a three-year journey for no good reason, I just kept putting it off again and again, but the release of Kamen Rider OOO 10th: Core Medal of Resurrection made me feel enough fear of spoilers to push me to finish the show. I regret taking so long because this is one of the best rider shows I've watched so far. The long gaps between watches didn't help my bad memory though, turning the watch into a less cohesive and impactful experience than it really is.

The thread's been sectioned into multiple pages to avoid loading too many pictures at once. Count the Ankh screenshots one two and three... 10... 20...30...

Sun Sep 01 01:52:29 +0000 2019 Ep 34 is called "Best Friends, Manipulation, and Relationships" and my OOO viewing buddy said "is this just adulthood?"
Sun Sep 01 02:26:22 +0000 2019 Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Sun Sep 01 02:26:37 +0000 2019 (OOO 34 SPOILERS) I have some kinda feeling for this situation but idk how to describe it and I also fear it won't get further depth than what it already has

Sun Sep 01 02:27:31 +0000 2019 (OOO 34 SPOILERS) Ankh only opens his mouth to yell insults but his face tells you the rest

Sun Sep 01 03:42:46 +0000 2019 This thread is gonna be a complete failure once I finish watching and instead of commentary there's just pics of Ankh.

Sun Sep 01 03:42:58 +0000 2019 I liked this design but all my pics were trash RIP

Sun Sep 01 03:43:04 +0000 2019 (OOO 35 SPOILERS) Well well well time to throw out the bird

Sun Sep 01 04:17:57 +0000 2019 He was literally trembling like a kitten this is hilarious. Ankh is not a bird he's the personification of every crying sad kitty meme pic out there.

Ironically I had to stop this ep halfway through bc of rain but I don't want to miss out on sharing this pathetic Ankh

Fri Sep 17 21:48:16 +0000 2021 Okay I stopped watching two years ago so I need to revisit it. Will play in the bg from ep 1 while I work, before the person I recced it to ends up finishing it before me LOL. God this thread is long... I might add additional commentary here (and I might repeat myself oopsie).
Fri Sep 17 21:48:17 +0000 2021 For example, I totally didn't remember Ankh acknowledges there is a belt jingle and offhandedly dismisses it when Eiji asks about it, which is hilarious.
Sat Sep 18 05:46:07 +0000 2021 (OOO E16 SPOILERS) So to recap, since I don't think I posted about it before... The greeds gained consciousness by having one of their ten medals destroyed. Something something being embodiments of insatiable desire bc of their permanent state of lacking.
Wed Apr 06 02:57:41 +0000 2022 I finished and cried lol
Wed Apr 06 03:14:51 +0000 2022 I took screenshots but my thoughts have seeped out of my brain already so I'll at least post pics for posterity

Starting with this nice clear shot of Ankh's hairstyle

Wed Apr 06 03:14:52 +0000 2022 (OOO E39 SPOILERS) Episode 39 had this nightmare sequence I really loved both for its simple but strong visuals and the very intimate view into Ankh's fears.

Wed Apr 06 03:14:53 +0000 2022 f**k 12 moment

Wed Apr 06 03:14:55 +0000 2022 (OOO E40 SPOILERS) Really can't get over how much the camera loves Ryon-kun. Ankh barely verbalizes his feelings and yet he ends up being more transparent than the rest of the main characters because of his eyes.

Wed Apr 06 03:14:56 +0000 2022 (OOO E40 SPOILERS) Wish I had taken a moment to type down how I felt about this episode when I watched it, it's hard to express now... To begin with these last episodes had such striking shots, I love to see rider shows care about the emotional impact of good camera work.

Wed Apr 06 03:14:57 +0000 2022 (OOO E40 SPOILERS) I'm happy with the way OOO treated Hina as a character who had a lot riding on the story despite not being directly involved with the rider aspect. Some people criticize the demand for female riders as reductive, and with a show like OOO I understand why.
Wed Apr 06 03:14:57 +0000 2022 Fem charas in this franchise aren't gonna automatically be good by giving them a belt... Though it's true that I see no reason for ryuki-type seasons to not have more fem riders, I think I care a lot more that rider writers see fem characters as deserving of depth and a story arc
Wed Apr 06 03:25:56 +0000 2022 (OOO E40 SPOILERS) imo Hina was written with that desired care... The struggle with her wish to have her brother back became more complex thanks to the bond she ended up forming with Ankh and ep 40 was a nice inevitable confrontation of the situation.
