Yes, you were right. It was all just an April Fools joke. This, I’m sure, surprises nobody. Thanks to everybody who was cool about it! No thanks to everybody who was a dick. We have a supplemental post “Debriefing the Power Rider Apollo Crash” coming out later today along with a supplemental podcast later this week. Below is the original April Fools post in its entirety:
We have an exclusive look tonight at what appear to be casting sides for Power Rider! Our source tells us that they are in the early stages of casting for the
show, which appears to be adapted from Kamen Rider Fourze. Images and a transcription of the sides are below.
Neil appears more reserved than Gentaro by description. Do keep in mind, however, that these are just sides, and therefore subject to change. Other things of note with these sides:
- Saban seems to be sticking to the space theme
- Most of the Kamen Rider Club appears to retain their personalities, albeit ‘Sabanified’
- The Riders possess a fairly blatant Astronaut naming scheme
Our source implied that Koichi Sakamoto would serve as Executive Producer and that Amit Bhaumik would serve as a writer on the series. More details as they come.
Special thanks to our friend Jeff! Hope you get it, man!
