For the upcoming new Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Ghost, I'm deciding to a little fun and historical side project throughout the series.
Whenever a new form debuts for either Ghost or Spectre, I will research and composed a small "essay" for the historical figure the form is based on (ex: Newton or Edison), and see how well it was incorporated in the series itself. I will consider the form's "spirit cloak" (or "Damashiis" as it's called in the series), symbol and color of the Ghost Icon, how the said Icon is obtained in series, powers/weapons, and generally how its the figure is portrayed if possible during the comparison. Where or not I do a review on the base forms is up to me.
Note; I'm doing in order of appearance in series rather than the early debuts at the end of Drive or in the Surprise Future movie, unless I have to due to the continuity between them.
Wish me luck, and I hope it might be enjoyable in the future.
* Since recent magazine scans indicate that the Damashii's can take a spirt form as well as an "armor", I will possibly include the Damashii's (spirit) behavior and personality in the review. However, that solely depends on how at least one of them behaves on its first debut (Ore Ghost is pending).
* I will make a review for the core/base forms for both Specter and Ghost, and it would cover the overall design of the suits with their personal Damashiis in place of any research of historical figures, which they lack.
- Although, I might do a brief comparison between ghosts and specters in paranormal terms.
* Anything extra, like movie exclusive forms, if not part of the original 15 Eyecons being searched for, and possible dark Eyecons is pending to some more legit information comes around.
