(SPOILERS ALERT?)I’ve just finished this infomercial series earlier last week (still need to watch the movie); decided to watch it since a few of you seem to be fond of it and recommended it ^^. Kamen Rider 555, or “Faiz” (Five’s… sounds better than 000/Oh’s), left me yearning for a sequel of some sort. Not that I find this series particularly enjoyable, but because the ending was rather… inconclusive; even with 50 episodes, the last few episodes felt a bit rushed and we’re left with a plot that is certainly set up for a continuation.
Catchy theme- the end justi-∅’s the means! Being a slightly older Heisei series, the picture of the series does look a bit “raw” (think soap opera) and it contrasts highly with the special effect used but it’s easy to get used to. I won’t dwell into the plot and all that (that’s what the wiki page is for), but I must say… this series is a bit dark with a “live on!” theme. While there is some lighthearted moments here and there, it is usually followed by a grim turn of events, leaving the affected characters in despair, angst, depression and whatnot. It’s a bit of a messed up show actually ^^;.
Clip of Faiz’s finishing moves. Gotta love his Accel form. His “cellphone” sure has a smooth talking voice haha. “Set your eyes on the next Faiz”…
Your thoughts on Faiz?
