NHK did a giant poll with half a million votes ranking best show/movie, best Rider, and best music.

Notable highlights: Den-O basically wins with best show, best Rider and top 5 for music. Build is ranked #5 in show but before that the most recent show is OOO.

Best show/movie only showed the top 25 so Wizard/Saber/Ghost are not ranked. Hibiki just barely squeaked in at #24.

The top 10 of best Rider are all titular Riders EXCEPT for #10, KR Grease. Eternal is incredibly popular for a movie Rider, coming in at #17. Genm actually beat Ex-Aid in popularity, #19 to #29. Despite the actor's super popularity right now, Drive is only #30. Saber hits #58, Ghost #69, Wizard #14.

Music is actually a bit surprising, Excite hits #1 followed by Be the One at #2, and Anything Goes at #3. Top ten are all main themes except P.A.R.T.Y ~Universe Festival~ from the Zi-O movie, Time Judged All (banger) and Elements.

Overall I agree with most of the rankings here so I'm rather hopeful that Toei sees this and makes some decisions accordingly as how to approach Rider from hereon. (Not hiring the Ghost/Saber writer again would be a big step forward)

So I saw Vulcan & Valkyrie...

KR Agito 28 discussion thread

It's episode 28! The weird one that's 4:3 aspect ratio and also the only episode not written by Inoue. This one's a Kobayashi script! Kobayashi, come back! Click below to discuss this episode:

I always forget that Agito has episode titles since they don't appear in episode.

Looks like Toei's done uploading Agito to their YouTube channel. Let's discuss episodes!

What are these videos?

Toei YouTube Channel

What are these? I grabbed them thinking we could sub these, but...

When I opened Blades' video, it's just him posing with his sword like he's a Calvin Klein model. That's not even a real jacket, you can see the back isn't complete when they pan over that area (oops!)

Also, Angela Mei's video is the only one in the set that's 1280x720, the rest are 1920x1080. Why? Also, her video is the most popular at almost 10,000 views. Pretty weird move there, Toei. This is why I tell people that you hate women

Let's talk about Agito 19! I love the murder mystery nature of this episode. Reminds me of watching Columbo.

Let's take a moment to appreciate Kouno's Columbo antics.
