(God… This episode. Wow. It doesn’t matter how many times I watch it, I’ll always feel bad for Kagami. You know, I love Tendou, He is by far my favorite Kamen Rider, but what he does here…  It is so kind and cruel at the same time that bothers me.)

I get so angry at the way Kamen Rider Spirits portrayed the death of Tackle. Stronger took it upon himself to decide that she should fade into obscurity because he felt it more important that she be “a normal woman” than a heroine. He had no right to do that. He destroyed her legacy.

No. Fuck you.
Stronger allowed her to die as a person rather than as Tackle because the life of a Kamen Rider is a life of pain and suffering. (At least in the Showa days.) He didn’t want the world to remember her only for her battle against evil, but to remember her for what she was: a human being with a personality, motivations, and dreams. Stronger didn’t want her legacy to be one of destruction and death, but rather one of peace and fulfillment.
YES, it’s more important to be a normal woman than a heroine. But you know what? It’s more important to be a normal man than a hero. The person inside comes before the hero of justice, and they should be remembered in death as a human being rather than as a fighting machine. Because in the Showa days, that’s what Riders were: they were fighting machines; in the original series they constantly struggled with their non-human identity as cyborgs designed for combat. It was one of the major themes of the entire period!
And Stronger would have done the same thing if it was a man, and I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t be as angry if it was Stronger that had been killed and Tackle was the one laying him to rest as Shigeru Jo, not as Kamen Rider Stronger.
Seriously. Fuck you, that moment was touching and you’re reinterpreting it for your double standard sexism bullshit.

I AM GLAD THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE LIKE ME OUT THERE ON TUMBLR WHO UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE.

Tackle has a face. Tackle has a name. Tackle was a person. Yuriko was a person. 
You know those team-up movies we have every year now, where it’s all of the Riders in a big lineup? The head guy isn’t “Hongo Takeshi” anymore. He is Kamen Rider #1. That is who he is. Stronger is Stronger, X is X.
That’s all the old showa riders are anymore. They’re the riders. They’re not the people. Stronger did not want that for her and jeez, that’s a freaking kindness.
Although no one could save her from Decade.

^^^^THIS IS WHY TACKLE IS MY FAVORITE OK
also as of like last year she’s officially considered a rider by toei so WHOOOOOOOP in yo face

I will love forever this concept the hero being forced into as an ideal and forgetting the humanity and then having to star in crossover movies forever as the hero and not the person.  Woot.

Yeah it’s totes the best to refuse to grant immortality to women because fictional characters might be sad about being responded to as icons rather than living humans

I think instead of fighting amongst ourselves about the text, we should actually focus on the real reason of why the text was even there in the first place.Which is to say, this is Toei’s fault.You can argue about the way the author of Spirits didn’t deal with this issue better, but really its an issue that really isn’t his fault to begin with.Spirits is the symptom. Toei is the disease.
