Kamen Rider W Forever: A to Z — The Gaia Memories of Fate (2010)
Fitting neatly between episodes 44 and 45 of its parent series, the Gaia Memories of Fate unquestionably forces your hand where many other films content themselves to whisper polite suggestions. Thankfully, this tale of a maniacal dark rider and his multi-hued crew of henchmen is well worth its near 90 minute running time. They busy themselves with collecting the scattered next-generation Gaia Memories that their leader, Kamen Rider Eternal, deliberately releases upon Fuuto in the eventual service of a masterstroke against the series’ enemy organization, Museum. W is tasked with fighting back in one of its most basic incarnations and its even further powered-up final form, both of which debut here. These are logical and are born of severe character progression for both protagonists and the intercession of a large source of their strength.
