Ex-Aid is genuinely good in that its plot is a well-oiled machine that delivers moments of to you at the precise time for maximum impact.

It has a guy who turns into a bike.

It has a Christmas episode.

It has genuinely great looking suits.

It's just that I watched it pretty much directly after watching the most serious show in the franchise (Kuuga) and slammed into it and I'm still not sure if I actually like it or not.

It's more that I'm a nerd who wants to figure out if what I watched was fun, good, or both. And then liking something is entirely different - Kamen Rider W for example is very fun and almost good but I'm not sure if I like it thanks to Shotaro being abrasive. Kamen Rider Ghost by contrast is fun, terrible, and I love it.

e: And to round it off Kamen Rider Kuuga is not fun to watch (kinda) but it is extremely good and it is easily my favorite Kamen Rider show. It tells an absolutely rock-solid story and what's silly about it is incidental to the characters, not dominating the whole thing like it does in W or Ex-Aid.

Honestly that's been one of the highlights of checking out toku fandom? There are so many different shows that people love/hate and reading all the reasons why is fun and fascinating - and then you watch the show yourself and form your own opinions and discuss 'em with others and it's just. I love it a lot!

(I also love watching men in spandex/rubber suits fighting other men in rubber suits, so it's a win-win. )

It's kind of hard to watch though because it contains a level of violence that the WWE never probably ever intended to broadcast. Mick Foley is a god though

It's a shame that the only Kamen Rider video games are either those weird musou games and the budget fighting games on the Wii because I really wanna hit a button to henshin.

Did Fire Leo show up outside of the boss rush? If I remember correctly there was also a higher difficulty where you couldn't use your time slowing ability.

I unlocked everything in Viewtiful Joe, although I can't remember if I ever beat the final boss fair and square.

Weren't there some blue versions of him that showed up as minibosses or something?

Blue Fire Leo was a boss in VJ2, I remember that at least.

I'd forgotten that the main game had a boss rush so my post above is probably wrong, I haven't played it seine the original GC version first came out.

the highest difficulty from what i remember just took away the skull prompts on all attacks, which is arguably worse than losing slowdown

there were blue fire leos as enemies but they didn't have the whole flaming rock->fast forward punch to get fire immunity cycle that the full boss had which was the hardest thing about him
