Kamen Rider W is pretty good and entry level.

Manly toku? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Shinkenger is really good if you're interested in Super Sentai.

What's the difference between normal Toku and Super Sentai?
>> No.44853  
Tokusatsu can be any live-action show with super heroes and/or special effects. Super Sentai specifically refers to the Toei series of shows, and I guess you could call any tokusatsu where there's a team of heroes a sentai show, contrary to, for example, Kamen Rider where you have one or two heroes who don't necessarily form a team.

In addition to the team aspect, Super Sentai also has a large emphasis on super robots and big scale setpiece battles. Ultraman has big scale fights too, but lacks mecha.

I'm reviving this thread because I got back into watching Kamen Rider W, and really liking it. Following people who post Kamen Rider stuff on Tumblr and seeing the commercials for the movies whilst watching the show also makes me really curious about the other shows.

Would you guys recommend the old Kamen Rider shows (i.e., unhandsome Riders, I suppose), or old Super Sentai series? I thought about just watching some of the newer ones, but then I figured I might as well also watch something a little older.

Kamen Rider Black is quite good.
>> No.46772  
Watch Kuuga if you haven't already. I recently rewatched the whole series again, and even 13 years later, it's still the best Rider series ever made.
Also seconding Black, and RX if you enjoyed Black. Anything older might be too campy/silly if you're used to the newer stuff.

I hope the presence of toku doesn't necessarily signal a drop in /bun/'s quality!
>> No.46774  
Yeah, Kuuga is really good. But I thought he meant Showa riders only when he said 'old'.

How's Fourze and Wizard by the way? I haven't been watching Kamen Rider since OOO.
>> No.46794  
Kuuga is old, grandpa! And I was under the impression >>46767 is new to Rider in general.

I dropped Fourze after the first episode. I tried getting back into it but it seemed to attract subhumans of the highest caliber, so that was that.

Wizard has been pretty good, despite its attempt at being more ``mature'' and ``serious'' which I was highly skeptical about. It's got a lot going against it, and although rather plot-focused, you could see the big surprise a hundred miles away. But as a Rider show, it's pretty alright.
>> No.46831  
I'm not old! ...Am I?

Yeah, Fourze was written by that Gurren Lagann guy, right. I guess I'll skip that and download some episodes of Wizard, then.
>> No.46838  
Nakashima wrote Fourze!? I might just watch that next! Then Kuuga or Black, I suppose.

God damn it, I need to go to school now, but Kamen Rider W is so fucking good! Now that I'm nearing the end, this shit's like LOST!
>> No.47541  
Wow, that felt weird. I was really not looking forward to finishing it, but somehow, I feel like it was a nice conclusion.

If anyone are/were on the fence or whatever, I wholeheartedly recommend Kamen Rider W, especially if it's your first toku. So good.
>> No.47546  
It is, isn't it? It's not perfect (for example, the whole Boss x Accel thing was painfully awkward, and I'm not sure if SUDDENLY UTOPIA was a good climax) but god damn if this weren't the best iteration in the past decade.

I would've been far more interested in the other post-Decade shows if W weren't so good. Sadly none of them quite hold up to W, and now that Urobutcher's doing Gaim, my interest is all but gone.
>> No.47558  
If you don't feel like any of the newest shows are that good, which other Rider shows do you like?
>> No.47563  
Is anyone watching Gaim? How is Urobuchi writing a Sunday morning children's show turning out?

For Heisei, my favorites has got to be Kuuga and Agito and, despite the clusterfuck of a story, Decade.

I'll be honest, I started Fourze again due to the crossover movies, and I'll eat my word and admit it's pretty good. However, I still can't get over how fucking retarded the suit is, so that's half of my reason for watching a Rider show gone.

With the dodgier ones (e.g. Decade, Blade, OOO), they usually look dumb in pictures but once you see them on TV they suddenly look cool, like Toei sprinkled some TV magic on them or some shit. But not with Fourze; he's still very, very goofy, so it really detracts from my enjoyment. It's nitpicking, but then think of it like this: if it were harem/cute girls doing cute things shows, you wouldn't watch them if you don't find the girls cute, would you?
>> No.47564  
I like Gaim, it's pretty enjoyable so far. Kouta is a really good main character. Keep in mind though that I generally don't like toku and the only other KR series I enjoyed to the end was W.
>> No.47574  
What I'd like to know is is it splattered all over with Urobuchi?
>> No.47585  
Thank you! I think I'll go with Kuuga, as a lot of people recommend that.
>> No.47587  
So far I haven't noticed too many of his mannerisms, I mean they just only now introduced a gun using character but it's only 5 episodes in.

But he's pre~tty good! Also, I hope there are less RE4 like monsters (as in episode 2), and more guys in suits, because those fights are the best.
