It’s been a long road, hasn’t it, Fourze? About a year ago now that you and I started on this little journey. It was a bit weird at first, going out on my own to try doing a show again after my previous attempts at subbing didn’t really pan out. Something about you – that sense of fun and rompiness – just called out to me, and I wanted to take another chance at subbing stuff again.
We’ve been through some great highs together, and some lows. Sometimes you had me crying, sometimes laughing, sometimes you were frankly just a bit dull. And through bad moods, health, and events, you’ve always been there to pick me up a bit.
It’s true you could probably have done with a few more episodes here, and the way you film so far ahead of schedule meant that by the time you knew you were going to lose an ep to the Olympics, it was probably a bit late to compensate for it. So yeah, maybe this episode’s script felt a bit disjointed, and I had to put in a bit more work to make it all sing like it should. But after all the fun and great times you’ve given me, how could I not show you the effort you deserve?
I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s been fun, spending time working on you. And I know that getting your ending right isn’t always the most easy thing in the world, especially in a Kamen Rider show. But even if your ending does end up being a bit batshit, and I end up hating it for whatever reason, we’ve had fun together, and you’ll always hold a very special place in my heart. No matter where this all ends up leading to, you’ll always have my respect, and I’ll forgive you if it does end up being a bit… iffy.
Because after all… isn’t that what friends are for?
