When I first saw pics of OOO, I wasn't sure about it, but I gave it a chance, and I was glad I did. The episode begins with a pair of guards robbing a musuem, after drugging the new guard, Eiji Hino, so he can't interfer. However, during their robbery, a mass of medals forms togather and unlocks a stone coffin, releasing the Greeed
from their 800 years in hibernation. The Kougami Foundation deploys its Ride Vendors to face them, only for the army to be obliterated as Kosei Kougami makes a birthday cake for the monsters while singing happybirthday to them.
Eiji finds himself waking up with a mysterious red coin in his hand, and as he goes to change into his street clothes, the wall collapses, leaving him in his underwear facing the rescue squad and police. Afterwards, he discovers his only other pair of underwear have been burned, forcing him to find a new job to buy new ones. However, as this happens, he encounters Ankh, a flying forearm that wants its medal back, but when one of the Greeed, Uva, sends a mantis monster to get his own Medals back from Ankh, Eiji will need to become Kamen Rider OOO to survive.
Overall, the episode was great, I loved the storyline and the Greeed are all wonderfully designed, and even in the first episode, they each show a unique personality. Uva is hotheaded and fierce, Kazari is childish to the point he didn't think to bring up seeing Ankh making off with their missing medals until after the others realized it, Gamaru is a brute who and slow but still is the first to realize something is missing from the Greeed, and Mezuru is clearly more thoughtful than her fellows and somewhat more compassionate. Their designs are all pretty cool, though the opening shows their 'true' forms, which seem to be even better. Another nice design is the Yummy, which are very creepy overall.
Eiji, on the other hand, is a comical hero, but I love his Lets Get Dangerous
moments, the actor is great at showing that Eiji isn't as dumb as the others believe him to be without seeming out of character. Ankh, on the otherhand, is just an awesome prop that shows his bird nature but can still show emotion wonderfully. OOO's himself, now that we actually see his suit in action, works much better than the still pics can display.
Overall, Kamen Rider OOO is shaping up to be another great entry in the Kamen Rider series, don't miss it
