    Fourze sucks, worse than Decade. Kiva was the last truly entertaining series for me.

      Being circumcised with a spork TWICE is an upgrade to watching Kiva. Then again, the show wouldnt probably get the reference even if it had the ability to. Kiva is to the KR franchise, what Jasper (Brian’s cousin) is to Family Guy.

      Nothing good after Kiva? WRONG. Kamen Rider Double is my favorite series and Kiva really had nothing special about it. Fourze is a really nice change from the very dark Kamen Rider series we’ve had during the Heisei Era, mainly the first 7 Kamen Rider series this era have been really dark. Fourze is such a nice contrast to the rest. While Fourze has a list mile long of problems, it also has a list of the same length of all the things great about it. Also, Decade wasn’t perfect, but it’s alright.

        Double sucks too, but not as much as Fourze and Decade. Akiko is plain annoying, the acting and plot sucks. I don’t see how Fourze is good. No plot, stupid script/dialogue, shit acting, idiotic riders design, simply nothing good about the series except for Ran (she’s cute LOL).

        I don’t see how enjoyable these recent stupid-ass series are. I for sure am not a kid who likes campy crap that does not have a plot with shit acting. From a critical point of view, there’s simply nothing good about Fourze. Heck, even if I am a kid, I don’t think I will be convinced by the stupid-looking riders.

          …yeah, I can’t agree with anything you said.

          In my opinion, Kamen Rider has gotten a significant boost in quality ever since Decade ended; the shows have finally gone free from their terrible soap-opera shtick and are now great superhero shows with great characters and stories.

          Fourze is the perfect embodiment of this new trend. A show that actually wants to be fun to watch with likable characters instead of cheap J-drama.

          The Riders designs are also colorful and pleasing to the eye, as opposed to the old Heisei Rider designs that blend together and have next-to-no memorable qualities other than your nostalgia for them.

            That is actually quite a problem for me. Without the dramatic dark themes then the new Kamen Rider is basically like watching a Super Sentai show. Each toku series had something different to show their differences. Sentai had the teamwork and the happy go lucky (in most cases) stories, Kamen Rider was about the darker and more adult themes, Metal heroes were heavy clunky fighters.

            If you take out what Kamen Rider was it becomes a Sentai show.

            Fourze is so bad. It’s plot structure, its design its a Sentai show. The reason why Kamen Rider is failing in ratings nowadays is because its changing itself to something that it’s not.

            W on the other hand was okay, not great or good. The ending that they chose basically negated the last 5 episodes.

          Are you watching Fourze?

          If you AREN’T…how do you know it’s shit? How do you know there’s no plot and stupid script? How do you know there’s “nothing” good about it?

          If you ARE…well then, you must be watching it for some reason. There’s plenty of tv that I don’t like, and I certainly don’t watch it. Do I think they are shit with no plot and stupid script/dialogue? Don’t know, don’t watch them. So do you know how much I care about them? Not a lot at all. Certainly not enough to go and piss and moan the same old tired argument on a website about it.

    Screw ratings. it’s stupid to worry about something that most of us can do NOTHING about, since HJU is mostly non-japanese fans, and only watching it on TV in Japan has any effect on ratings. Fourze is a great show, and with Wizard on the way, it means that despite low ratings, the series is still going! however, we are helping by buying the toys, which honestly makes up for the ratings

      The reason why they are sticking to their failing structure for Kamen Rider is because they have a 4-5 year plan in action already that TOEI unfortunately planned way ahead and is unable to stop.

      Whichever dumbass in TOEI decided to change the whole Kamen Rider formula had a plan to introduce a “different” type of Kamen Rider. The Last rider of this generation is already planned out and they must finish it.

      This new generation (Neo-Heisei) is a test for TOEI. If it gets good ratings (which thankfully it isn’t) it will stick to having this retarded Happy go lucky, false depiction of friendship and different themes that suit Super Sentai more.

    You call Kiva good. And then called Double bad. You sir, are full of human droppings. The last show you liked had a hero that would rather commit suicide after losing a girlfriend the personality of a doormat. Not taking into consideration the lives he’d have UNsaved by rewriting history.

    With lame “romance” even Twilight fans would laugh at, and a cast of unsympathetic miserable losers that just cannot be taken seriously, I would take a campy light story than a pretentious despicably emasculated soap-opera wannabe excuse for a show.

    Remember kids, when life throws lemons at you, go back in time and abort yourself. Because that’s what Kurenai Wataru wants you to do. ^_^v

      Kiva was AWESOME! Double was overrated, but it was good. And Os just blew every series since Blade away.
