Did Adness abandon Kamen Rider?

I remember a while back Steve Wang or someone said that Adness was trying to fund another Kamen Rider adaptation. Whatever happened to that? While I'll admit Dragon Knight had a lot of problems, I did however enjoy it. With better promotion I think it could have done a lot better.

Has anyone heard anything? I know it's probably a longshot but I figured I'd post something since I know Keith is in contact with a lot of those guys.

No one watched it. Networks don't want to take a chance with a show that had such awful ratings. I admit I hated Dragon Knight, I think adapting Ryuki was stupid because they justed wanted more toys on the shelves, but I would like to see it given a second chance

I remember in one of the conventions Steve Wang basically said he would like to, but didn't have the money

How many networks don't want to take chance? Can you named them, MMPR? I remember in back of my memory lane that Cartoon Network was supposed to put Kamen Rider on that block! :eyebrow:

Um..how much money that cost to produce the kamen rider series? :hmm:

Uhhhh but didn't Addness say they weren't planning to do another Kamen Rider any time soon?
Seems to be it. They're not the most successful company from what I gather, and I find it hard to believe they would want to go out and produce another series when the first one apparently didn't do too well in its target market.

It really is common sense. A Kamen Rider TV show would have to appeal to kids, and kids in North America have no fucking clue with KR is. There are a couple fans on the internet, but we're not enough.

Since there already has been a KR show in a decent timeslot and network, it would only be logical that they aren't going to bother. And if people say it was the promotion, the networks aren't going to spend a high amount of money with increased promotion to hope the show reaches its potential. At least Power Rangers has some significance in North America.

I never heard the Cartoon Network thing though
 
Did they? No.
Do the have the funds to do another right now? No.

We can always hope that Nick might come knocking and we get a Western Super Hero Time block.......but thats all we, as fans, can do at this point.

You're right. In this generation, kids have no clue what KR is. It's just that..I don't understand why tv networks doesn't want to take Kamen Rider on their block? Or perhaps they don't want to do it? Ever since people are going to compare Kamen Rider to Power Rangers.

Since you never heard the Cartoon Network thing, because I visited website four years ago and found the logo of Cartoon Network stamped on Kamen Rider.

Maybe I thought Cartoon Network had picked it up, but I was wrong. Instead, 4kids picked it up.....:redface2:

When a show goes to 4Kids,it`s officially DOA.

So, DekaThunder, in other words, you're telling me that Kamen Rider franchise's officially dead? Is that what you're telling me? :eyebrow:

Hmmm...no,I should have worded what I said a little better.Sorry about that:)

I do sincerly think Kamen Rider could work in the US.I hope it gets another shot at some point.It just has to be on the right network.

I think the Wang Brothers, Long, and the rest of the DK crew are willing and ready; it's a matter of when. As Mike Wang mentioned...he either wants to "Justiphi the Means" or "Walk the Path Heaven":laugh:

Then again, the team "Beginning and ending at a climax" or "Break the chains of destiny" would be fun too.

Don't worry, you've worded just fine.

Well..I believe that NICK is the right network. Hell, Power Rangers has pulled and drawn in over two million viewers, at one time before, there was a increase in tv ratings, it was three million viewers.

I think NICK just might give it a another shot. We might finally going to have Super Hero Time here once again.
