Hi again! Hope things are going well. Checking in to see how you're doing here, and I want to make sure that you catch these important Fandom updates.
The Unified Community Platform (UCP) is coming this year, which means that Fandom Wikis like this one will be getting some much-needed renovations (and new features!) as we move to an upgraded version of MediaWiki. Check out the Staff blog post UCP: The Vision, Purpose, and Process for information on the roll out plan, which will come out this year in stages.
The first stage will be starting very soon, with new wikis being created on the UCP. To stay up to date with these changes, you can keep an eye on the staff blogs on Community Central.
If you have any questions, feel free to comment on those blog posts or let me know!
First things first, canon =/= continuity. Canon determines whether something fits within the narrative of the overarching story. Continuity determines where it fits. That is, in order to determine continuity, it must be canon - but if it isn't canon it may not fit into continuity at all. This often occurs when events depicted contradict each other, and there is thus no place to put it such that it fits.
In this case....
1. No they aren't, per the above. The movie fits within the series' narrative, specifically given Geiz mentions Go Shijima in one of the last episodes. This means at some point he has to have met Go - and he does, in this movie. Therefore the film is canon. It's within continuity as well, because of this, but since part of the movie involves travelling to the past there is no guarantee that the 2019 they return to is the one they left or that it hasn't changed because of their "interference" in the past. That is, they could've returned to an alternate 2019.
2. The tweet says that it is canon, it doesn't say when it fits into continuity. I would argue it takes place before Geiz mentions meeting Go, but that's not specific as to where to put it. I would guess that it was removed because Shirakura didn't say that it must take place before the final episode, just that it is canon.
3. Again, we can gather that it takes place between when Sougo obtains Grand Zi-O and the episode Geiz mentions meeting Go, but if it is worded like a guess, without reasons why, I can see someone removing them.
Put simply, per episode 47 - "Geiz, that knows about Kamen Rider Drive from Krim Steinbelt, asks if Chase knew about Kamen Rider Mach, Go Shijima."
Meaning, Geiz has heard about Drive from Krim. Geiz met Krim in Over Quartzer. Therefore, it must take place prior to 47 which in turn is before the finale.
The director said it is an alternate timeline - which makes sense, because there wouldn't be two Sougos in the same timeline. We know the movie is canon, from the first tweet. The second tweet says it takes place before the finale, but per episode 47 it cannot be immediately before the finale. What Shirakura is saying is that the events take place before the events in the finale. Placing it after 43 but before 47 meets this criteria.
The page, as Destiny Shin has edited it, is correct as-written.
I have quoted another version of Shirakura's word, which saying the "Over Quartzer --> Final Episode --> Winter Movie --> Spring Movie" is just meaning the chronical order of the frictional date of the event, not meaning a single timeline continuity
Hello! My name is Kylara , and I'm the Fandom Wiki Manager for Kamen Rider Wiki, so I'm going around introducing myself to the active admin here. I'm here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. The wiki looks pretty solid, but if you ever have any questions or issues relating to the wiki, editing, or anything of the sort, please contact me on my message wall or on Discord!
I'm going around to let communities know about a couple things. The first is a new feature called Global Taxonomy, which will better personalize wiki recommendations for you and visitors. People who would be interested in your wiki content will be better able to find it, and it will help you discover content that’s interesting and relevant to you. You can read more about in the Community Central staff blog post Introducing Global Taxonomy.
