Kamen Rider Neus By Alex Smith Chapter/Episode 1: OPAC Space is a dark place. And I prefer it that way. As the young Crown Prince of the Order of Planetary Assimilation and Colonization peered out the window of the enormous space station secretly orbiting earth, he felt an intense calm over himself. â€œFor I reside over the Earth Branch. Soon the beautiful blue marble planet will be mineâ€¦â€ Earth, 2145, Shibuya, Japan Jack Hongo sat inside a cafÃ© alone, except for the front desk cashier, drinking tea, staring out the window without a care in the world. He was 21. He had no care in the world. Little did he know his entire world was about to be changed forever. He suddenly felt the cafÃ© shake and asked the front desk clerk to turn on the holovision. She complied and there seemed to be no major warnings of any kind. Suddenly a nearby manhole popped open and a white robotic machine approached the cafÃ©. Hongo stared at it ax it approached. It barged through the doors and approached Hongo. It offered out itâ€™s hand and a message played on the view screen. â€œMy friend Jack Hongo, do not be alarmed! You have been chosen to be the first to usher in a new era for the Earth! I am Crown Prince Teng. OPAC needs a new leader, and you are a Cho-Ningen.â€ Hongo tensed up and charged at it. â€œWhat bullshit! I wonâ€™t let anything happen to me or the Earth.â€ He swung at the robotâ€™s camera sensors, disabling them. â€œAh! Very good! But you are finished trying to delay your fate.â€ At Tengâ€™s prompt, seven probes popped out of the robot and stabbed into his arms, causing him to collapse in pain. The robot carried him out the door and flew away, leaving the cashier catatonic and shaking. Hongo awoke, and felt a strange sensation in his arm. He saw on his right arm an armband. On his left was a brace with an N stamped on it. â€œI see you have found your new tool, my friend. You are no longer Joe Hongo, you are Neus, the enforcer and champion of OPAC. Why donâ€™t you show me what you can do! Shout Henshin and your powers will activate.â€ Joe thought to himself, Iâ€™ll play alongfor now, and then escapeâ€¦ He shouted â€œHenshin!â€ and he was covered in sleek chrome armor, with green bug eyes and a kabuto helmet. He motioned towards the monitor in the back of the room and it imploded. Astonished, he gazed at his hands. â€œWhat to do now?â€ He hesitatingly approached the bay next to him and saw all kinds of shuttlecraft, but an alarm sounded and massive hordes of attack drones swarmed out of the walls and flew towards Neus...Neus tensed up in preparation, then braced for impact as the glass shattered.
