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.

Wed Mar 20 21:35:04 +0000 2019 Shuichi and Goro SHOULD be great master/servant bait but for some reason I am not feeling it. I'm more interested in Shuichi bullying Shinji out of disgust towards his naive attitude.
Wed Mar 20 21:49:10 +0000 2019 I want to protect Shinji...

Wed Mar 20 22:11:44 +0000 2019 (RYUKI 14 SPOILERS) It's only been one day since Shinji's will was broken and Dragreder is already trying to eat him. These monsters are stone cold.
Wed Mar 20 23:43:35 +0000 2019 Should have posted to the thread whoops. The track is titled Contract B so I wonder if there's alternate versions of it...

Wed Mar 20 23:57:20 +0000 2019 Ren said Shinji rights

Thu Mar 21 06:59:45 +0000 2019 This is not plot related but I continue to worry about Takamasa Suga's face. Now he has a deep looking scar where I've noticed that pimple. What happened!

Thu Mar 21 07:05:35 +0000 2019 "Kind of a weird e-mail" is one way to put it

Thu Mar 21 07:28:11 +0000 2019 thinking emoji

Thu Mar 21 07:38:47 +0000 2019 (RYUKI SPOILERS) Hmm, Ren was very affected by Shinji's su*cidal behavior after he thought he had k*lled Zolda, but I can't figure out if it's because of his own doubts about k*lling or if it's because he wants to keep Shinji from having to confront that situation. Or both.
Thu Mar 21 07:38:47 +0000 2019 (RYUKI SPOILERS) I want to say it's mostly his personal reasons but he keeps thinking back to how happy Shinji was knowing Goro was alive. I think Ren is doomed, if he cares for Shinji then he's doomed. Protagonist partners must always vanish, this franchise hates happy endings.
Thu Mar 21 07:40:35 +0000 2019 Oh yeah and I guess he always had that scar there and I didn't notice.
Thu Mar 21 08:01:19 +0000 2019 Ren: whatever Shinji sucks
Miyuki:

Thu Mar 21 08:05:18 +0000 2019 I hate his dumb pretends-not-to-care face

Thu Mar 21 08:07:41 +0000 2019 Give me this mug

Fri Mar 22 00:18:47 +0000 2019 Jesus dude give him some air. Shinji is so freaking clingy.

Fri Mar 22 00:22:26 +0000 2019 I am suddenly wondering whether or not this counts as a squidbob ship

Sat Mar 23 07:37:18 +0000 2019 I don't know how to convey my love for Takamasa Suga's voice. I mean this in a very loving way, he sounds like a dumbass. It fits Shinji's personality perfectly.
Sat Mar 23 07:47:39 +0000 2019 (RYUKI 18 SPOILERS) Continues to wonder about Shiro's gray morals as I see him make a contract with a man in jail sentenced to 10 years in prison 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 really can't tell if Shiro is bad or good! Who knows not me!
Sun Mar 24 01:11:18 +0000 2019 (RYUKI 19 SPOILERS) I don't think Ren has said a thing for two episodes straight and the first thing that comes out of his mouth after this period of silent depression brooding is basically telling me he's given up on living T_T
Sun Mar 24 01:11:19 +0000 2019 (RYUKI 19 SPOILERS) Also when confronted with Eri's situation he didn't do a badass-that-needs-anger-management scene at Miyuki, he just kinda looked like he wanted to d*e. Ren's type of character could have easily been written as violent here but he wasn't and I appreciate that.
