Over-Time recently released Kamen Rider Movie Wars: Core... and it was a huge sloppy mess. Not through any fault of theirs', mind you, those Over-Time boys did the best they could. It was just a mess of a movie, that I had a lot of hope for.
But we're here to wash that foul taste out of your mouth! This week's Fujioka-less episode of Kamen Rider actually has a lot of parallels to Movie Wars: Core. There's a ballerina getting brutalized, the badguys are targetting weddings, and the star of the show is only half in-character! (Hiyoooo)
But more importantly, what we have here is an entertaining episode. Another creepy church plot (my favorite!) and Taki makes his series debut! Tachibana and co hatch a plan to stop Shocker in their tracks, while Hongo is strangely absent. And Ruriko looks particularly attractive in glasses and a wedding dress...
Kamen Rider Episode 11:
Translator's notes after the break:
This episodes monster is named "GebaCondor." Now, before you go and accuse us of not translating that name, let me interject. Geba is actually a German word meaning "Power" or, more specifically, oppressive power. In Japanese, it's a borrow word that can also mean "Violence." But, specifically, political violence (subjugation) as opposed to violent acts. Seeing as the geba in GebaCondor is written in katakana, it's apparently the German version of the word (which fits in with the theme of future monster names)
Also, GebaCondor appears to be a pun on the word "gebaruto" (gebacondoru) which is a term for a violent political radical. Also derived from the german word for power.
So there you have it. His name is GebaCondor. It's not untranslated. If you want to alter the script to use a proper translation for Geba, something like "Subjugation" or "Totalitarian" would be appropriate. The more you know!
