    A promo for the next Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid is going to premiere in October. The untranslated promo is here. Some notes:

    • The setting is a hospital, so the systems are called “Doctor Rider”.[/*:my0slh7i]
    • It’s the 25th Anniversary of the Famicom (Nintendo Entertainment System), so there is a video games theme both in the series and the suit design.[/*:my0slh7i]

    Well, that jumps straight over the line from kind of silly kid’s show over to a thirty minute toy commercial. And I’d imagine a video game commercial as well. I mean, they’ve always wanted to sell toys, but this one seems well over the line.

    The producers don’t do things in design unless it was intentional. I see the color schemes, plastic design, and such as the same used on arcade machines and portable gaming units. It just looks a bit garish.

    We will have to see in the actual show next month.
