KAMEN RIDER RYUKI LIVE WATCH ARCHIVE

This is an archive of my Kamen Rider Ryuki live watch thread, from Twitter. I think this was my first time making this type of thread to try to collect my thoughts on a TV show a little better. You can tell how inexperienced I was at this point when it comes to tokusatsu tropes with how strongly I criticize certain story beats related to female characters. Oh I was so silly and green back then. I bet if I watched Ryuki now those things wouldn't even phase me.

This archive is collected from two different Twitter threads in different accounts, plus a mini-extra thread of a certain friend's reactions from my DMs, shared with permission. I've marked where one thread ends the other begins in the table. There's 20 entries per page to make it easier on the visitor's browser and data. This was one of the shows I marathoned to be able to keep up with Zi-O without spoiling myself any finales or big story elements. It ended up being one of my favorite seasons and Shinji one of my favorite riders as well. Enjoy my tears and my laughs and my boizurabu brain vomit.

The collection of these live watch tweets couldn't have been possible without Marinehaddock's Threadifier Macronator 9000!!!, which he recently updated with alternative steps for LibreCalc users! Make your own version and let him know in the store page's comment section so we can all read your live reactions.

Sat Apr 20 06:37:27 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) Oh hey, that barebones depth for the monsters I wanted to see in the show but never received! Thanks movie.

Sat Apr 20 06:50:23 +0000 2019 compensate vent

Sat Apr 20 06:50:23 +0000 2019 Oh that's sexy

Sat Apr 20 06:50:24 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) wow that looks terrifying

Sat Apr 20 07:27:40 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) There's room for only one abdl in this show and that's Shuichi -_- I wish the shinmiho romance wasn't framed in this exhausting my-gf-is-my-mommy way. Not that there's anything wrong with mommy ships but Miho is doing all the work in this development.
Sat Apr 20 07:27:40 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) I'm supposed to believe she's both the one that keeps motherhenning Shinji, who shows no romantic interest in her, and simultaneously falling in love with him. Tying a 21yo's shoelaces, the epitome of romance.
Sat Apr 20 07:27:40 +0000 2019 *looks away* if shinmiho protecting is romantic then renshin protecting is romantic, tch
Sat Apr 20 07:27:41 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) On that note I'm a little ticked off that Ren gets such little screentime in this movie but what can you do, Shinji got a whole new partner. Though Shuichi and Goro also get very little screentime compared to shinmiho and their story doesn't feel lacking.
Sat Apr 20 07:27:41 +0000 2019 grumble grumble give me Ren time. Rider time............. I should shut up and finish this movie so I can watch the Ryuki Rider Time.
Sat Apr 20 07:35:18 +0000 2019 tweets these bitterly and goes back to the movie, Ren appears

tehe

Sat Apr 20 07:47:36 +0000 2019 Wow the Shinji self-blaming mental gymnastics that I just witnessed
Sat Apr 20 08:05:02 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) Incredible, Ryuki gave me Ren suffering in every available flavor. Thanks for the meal.
Sat Apr 20 08:05:02 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) (su*cide mention) Kinda don't like that su*cide is framed as a choice to be respected. I get what it means for the story and the charas in this particular situation but it's still a kids cartoon so it's maybe not the best way to handle the subject matter.
Sat Apr 20 08:07:28 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) Ah so that's the naughty worm's name

Sat Apr 20 08:10:07 +0000 2019 Ryuki's suit tore right on the crotch
Sat Apr 20 08:19:27 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) You KNOW I'm crying 😎🥂

Sat Apr 20 08:28:49 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL/NOVEL/TV SPOILERS) Like in the novel it feels a lil outta left field since the movie has very few renshin scenes but I'll take it. It does serve as a great annex to the TV climax. I think it's something TV Ren would have allowed himself to say if he had the chance.
Sat Apr 20 08:54:01 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) Shut up oh my god. So it changed from "live" to "don't d*e" huh.

Sat Apr 20 08:54:02 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) The end!

Hmmm I think my favorite Ryuki retelling/AU is 13 Riders after all. The story/character variations in it were interesting, and even if I like Miho over Itsuro as a character, he affected the 13R story in a more meaningful way than Miho did EF.

Sat Apr 20 08:54:02 +0000 2019 (EPISODE FINAL SPOILERS) Miho's presence didn't change much of anything huh lol She d*es and Shinji completely forgets she exists. Her fight against Ouja served more as an introduction for Ryuga than as a climax for her arc. The only meaningful input she had was in Shuichi's arc.
