You should feel ashamed.

Give Ex-Aid a chance. Despite the garish suits it's got a great cast with some of the better villain characters of modern Rider. Plus the best quaternary Rider ever.

This, a million times. Get over your wrong ideas about what a suit should be like and watch what's almost Rider perfection that will, guaranteed, change your religion and teach you a brand new meaning of Christmas.

The awful 90s plastic design is completely deliberate. I'm still genuinely surprised that nobody transformed with a goddamn Bop-It.

Also Ex-Aid has two of the only competent female Riders who don't die. Well, Poppy kind of does, but you know. She gets better.

The only good ex-aid suit is regular snipe, because the neon green sports bang actually sells the goofy aesthetic into something cool. The rest of them are just abysmal. Gaim has lots of issues, but legitimately I think sells the goofy as hell fruit theme into some genuinely nice looking suits.


edit: also this threads waaay hotter on ex-aid than me, I think you should watch W next

Dangerous Zombie, Muteki Gamer, Taddle Legacy, Perfect Knockout are IMO actually good designs (I like more than those but I like the show so that's bias). The only Issue is how clashing that hella lime green belt is.

Did Kuuga not air in the same hour as Timeranger because oh my god how could it possibly have been morning television?
Are the other early Heisei Riders like this? Does Agito have episodes about children being driven to suicide right before or after the Gaoranger's fun weekly adventures?

They used to be together, but in a different time slot. Itís not like kids were really into the Duplo version of Metal Heroes anyway.

Perfect Knockout is brilliant, because the gimmick of Perfect Puzzle and Knockout Fighter both being a clear "two suits in one toy" design leaves them both feeling somewhat incomplete, and then Perfect Knockout melds them together... perfectly.

Also hard agree on Dangerous Zombie and especially Muteki Gamer/Hyper Muteki.

Real X Time was so good. Very gripping, lots of hard hitting scenes, a really interesting antagonist, other than maybe a kind of boring final fight it was super good.

With that and Kamen Rider Metsuboujinrai, I'm tempted to go back and finish the actual series after I dropped it due to the terrible drop in quality it had and the abysmal attempt at redeeming Thouser.

For what it's worth, they really didn't try to redeem Thouser. Sure, he fought alongside the heroes against Ark, but everyone still hated him and gave him a ton of poo poo for the stuff he did.

Kuuga is family television. So the answer is yes. It has no interest in talking down to children about anything but it was made with children in mind. It is brilliant.

Maybe if more kids worldwide were taught that sometimes violence is the only way to deal with murderous death cults founded on eugenics, but also that violence can alienate you from your own humanity and is not a substitute for human connection, we'd have fewer reactionary dipshits with youtube channels.

Having wrapped up ToQger today, I guess I'm a little disappointed there wasn't a tad more resolution for Zed. I don't know what more exactly I would've actually wanted, like the idea that he and Grita are just gonna be out there in their train existing between dark and light is nice enough, I guess it just felt kind of abrupt? I dunno.

Anyway, other than that I absolutely adored the show and am super glad I went back and watched it. Great characters, amazing villain designs, really good use of the episodic nature of "hey, we're travelling to the next station" combined with longer runs when things begin to escalate, made me emotional a number of times, just really good stuff.

When ToQger was airing there was a theory that Zed was also a five year old child in a grown-up body, and that he came from a less-good home than the ToQgers. I really wish that had ended up being the case.
