Amazons Season 2 was great. I don't know why people keep trashing it.Little to no fun? Are you high right now? I can't think of any Kamen Rider series outside of that abysmal Amazons Season 2 that took itself too seriously.
Amazons Season 2 was dreadful. It was downright boring and threw in some creepy ass necrophelia plot that was completely unneccessary. The new rider dude was not even half as good as the previous ones. Jin felt completely out of character. None of the new characters were actually likable and it took like 8 episodes for the ones that were from the first season to come back. The main dude from Season 1 (can't remember his name anymore) also felt out of character and his backstory between seasons didn't make sense. And then there was no final battle. We never got to actually see the payoff for sitting through that unrelentless slop. Being dark and edgy doesn't make it good. All it did was make it pretentious.Amazons Season 2 was great. I don't know why people keep trashing it.
So Shinji always tripping in Ryuki and getting yelled at by his hysterically over-the-top boss was serious? What about the cooking episodes to Blade? Or watching Amane always go off on her uncle all of the time? His milk obsession and the sound effects from it? W had the cops that were always falling down. Gaim started out goofy. Hell, the show revolved around break dancing, that's not even remotely serious and the movie dealt with soccer.While I'll admit covid might have given me memory problems (or suicidal depression, heard that blocks out memories too), Kuuga through Kabuto did try to take themselves too seriously. W and Gaim also sort of did but not to the same extent and Ex-Aid was too curve-bally to place it in that category.
I will save you an extremely long rant and simply say Chihiro/Iyu is a toxic relationship. They should not be together. If she ever regained her freewill then it would end in (probably violent) tragedy.Amazons Season 2 was great. I don't know why people keep trashing it.
The first season is a throwback to the early Heisei "j-drama" style shows. Personally I'd say that, except for Kuuga, that's my least favourite era of Rider. I much prefer either the Showa stuff or whatever you want to call everything from Den-O onward. So I wasn't wild about s1, but it was what it was.Maybe I'm just so disillusioned with the regular show that anything Amazons-related is a gem by comparison, but I had a lot of fun with both seasons, and the movie.
That's kinda the whole point. Amazons and Rider has a whole is steeped in tragedy.I will save you an extremely long rant and simply say Chihiro/Iyu is a toxic relationship. They should not be together. If she ever regained her freewill then it would end in (probably violent) tragedy.
Funny, I didn't get that vibe at all. Either you're all watching a different show or your just have totally different thought processes.And if the story was about a literal manchild who destroys the very thing he wants due to his own lack of maturity, that would be understandable. Heck, his Amazon form even feels like symbolism for this, given that he's a literal giant monster.
But no, the show seems to want us to actually root for them, as if this was a tragic romance in the tradition of Romeo and Juliet. And I am not on board with that for a single second. I would have serious concerns about anyone who did.
Add onto that how everything from season one is put on pause to make room for this "romance" and the new characters are all complete psychopaths who seem to have no function beyond building you up to cheer if/when they die. I don't know what there is to like about it really?
Perhaps this is the crux of it all. The best era of Rider was the Kuuga-Hibiki years. Maybe the very early part of Kabuto as well.The first season is a throwback to the early Heisei "j-drama" style shows. Personally I'd say that, except for Kuuga, that's my least favourite era of Rider.
Not really. He's not the "Muahaha I'm EEEVVIILLL!!" character if that'd what you mean. It's just the idea of the desire to "do good" can lead one to evil deeds. Amazons just repeats Kobayashi's penchant for her Rider shows having two main characters at odds with each other and having to get along somehow.Also, it very clearly showed that Jin was a villain, which a lot of people seemed to misinterpret from s1.
I saw little difference between Season 1 and Season 2. Frankly my only real issues wirh Amazons were exactly what the Amazons were supposed to be (the show's not very clear on it) and that there was no real takedown of Nozama, or even some confrontation with the old President/Founder/whatever.Being dark and edgy doesn't make it good. All it did was make it pretentious.
