With the end of Zi-O and the beginning of Zero-One, the Neo-Heisei era of Kamen Rider is now over. Not only this, but it fits perfectly into the last decade, meaning I have an excuse to take a look back at the last ten years of Kamen Rider, and assign arbitrary awards instead of moaning about how bad they were.

With Mama Minato now back with us, everyone quickly tries to think of ways to deal with Leugocyte without firing a laser at it. It doesn’t work out so well, so R/B will probably have to fire a laser at it.
The Minato family, upon being visited by the person threatening to end the world, perform a dance about manju. Unsure of how to proceed the plot, we revisit the case of the missing mother. She’s been in Aizen’s basement all along, trapped inside a space vase.
We sleep through episode 18, then watch as D.R.L.N. sends the bad robot to go fight the Ultramen.
