Farewell, Famikamen Rider-Tribute to Justin Carmical

It's hard to believe that we've been without Justin Carmical, better known to the world as JewWario, for a year.  It's been hard for me to watch his old content, knowing that the happy man who did his best to spread joy and happiness to the world is no longer with us.

Which is why I think it's so important to share this with people; Marzgurl Productions' Farewell, FamiKamen Rider.  It's a tribute to both the Famikamen Rider character, and the man behind its creation.  It's a send off that has Justin's message all throughout it; that even throughout all the pain and heartache, that we all have something worth living for.

The tagline for the movie, as posted on the website and in the video's description, is as follows;

"MarzGurl Productions presents “Saraba/Farewell, FamiKamen Rider,” the thrilling conclusion to the story authored by the late Justin Carmical. After a massive fight in Canada, the FamiKamen Rider has gone missing in action, leaving his transformation belt behind and his cartridge vanished. In the aftermath of the battle, a new enemy appears, seeking out the power of the FamiKamen Rider for himself.

For three years, MarzGurl has kept the transformation belt safe from enemy hands. Her search for the missing cartridge proves futile, until Chris, a rare video game collector, stumbles upon the cartridge by chance. Not knowing what he has found, Chris’s curiosity makes him a target for this new evil. As he learns about the history of the FamiKamen Rider, with the additional support of an old friend and a new hero, it is up to MarzGurl and Chris to make the journey to find answers, confront their own fears, and stop this new threat before it is too late."

And here's the entire movie that Marzgurl posted on youtube;


Now, I'm not going to review this. I just finished watching it, and I'm still a little choked up.  What I will say is that the cast and crew of this film captured what Justin tried to give to the world.

So, instead of my normal sign off, I'm going to sign off with something that Justin said at the end of one of his livestreams, paraphrased into my own words;  You're not stupid. You're not an idiot. Don't ever let anyone tell you that, and don't tell yourself that.  Someone out there cares about you, no matter who you are, no matter what you're going through.  You're not stupid.
