genetic freak wrote:Could be close. Both kuuga and Agito are great with the continuity even factored in. All succeeding series are independent continuity. Faiz was decent but a bit on the too emo side, it was more Claremont era X-Men than Kamen Rider if you ask me. Kabuto started out strong but fizzled the last few eps. Kabuto is still in my favorites list though. Blade I cant seem to get into. Ryuki didnt felt like a KR show to be honest. .

List of what i definitely did like are:

Kuuga
Agito
Faiz
Kabuto
Kiva

The rest i can live without.


Wow, good calls on 555 and Kabuto.

I liked Blade, but not as much as those two or Den-O. I find Blade and Kiva to strike me about the same. I'm enjoying Ryuki so far.

Hibiki doesn't interest me and I'm yet to get to see Agito or Kuuga.

I've only seen 2-3 episodes of Den-o... it was okay but didn't really get into it.

Seems like Japan is Den-o crazy though. What is it, like 3 movies already? I don't get it. Plus they are getting all the SICs! :smt013

For me, Den-O turned out to be very whimsical, kind of like the old Captain Marvel stories from the forties. It was also not badly paced at all.

Yeah, it seems it's still popular, enough for the continuations to happen.

I've seen that the 700 yen figures have not been done at all for Kiva.

D'Oh!

I missed that. I'm used to the 700yen tag.

Who's Rey and Arc?

Haven't watched Kiva beyond the first couple... but do see the pics in magazines...

Rey:

Arc:

Or do you mean who are they in the show? I wonder if they might be characters from the movies...

EDIT: They are from the movie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamen_Rider_Kiva:_King_of_the_Castle_in_the_Demon_World#Movie-exclusive_characters

The best part of 555 or Faiz is in the last half of the series. Kabuto just went rushed in the end leaving dangling plotholes but a very solid first half IMO.

Agito is not on TVN but fully available in the interwebz.

Haha Well I did a quick search... and I know why you can't post pics.
