Kamen Rider Decade might not be good, but it's not nearly as bad as people make it out it be. Could be better, but still not that bad.

There was already a thread on this back in the day (here). But then again, it's riddled with posts I made years ago where I really needed to chill out about things that don't really matter, so maybe it should stay forgotten :confused:

But to bring up a few:

I really liked Den-O and Black RX, two seasons that seem to get a lot of hate. On the other hand, I really did not enjoy Agito. It's not quite my least-favorite Rider series (Faiz and the second season of Amazons immediately come to mind as being worse) but it seems to be a lot of fans' favorite season and it's nowhere near that for me.

Foundation X were rubbish in Double and I disliked all the attempts to bring them back.

Kyoryuger is the only toku series that has given me the same beyond-excited feeling that I had watching MMPR as a little kid, so for that alone it's my favorite Sentai.

When I was first getting into toku, it seemed like everyone hated Magi Pink and Deka Pink, but I thought they were front-runners for best members of their respective teams. Similarly, people seemed to despise Gosei Red but I thought he was interesting too, if not a favorite.

I thought Kikaider was pretty crap tbh and yet somehow it spawned a (minor) franchise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Kamen Rider Decade might not be good, but it's not nearly as bad as people make it out it be. Could be better, but still not that bad.
I always say that Decade was a great "shop window" for showing off the previous Riders' suits and powers. Some great music and great fights too. One of the best opening episodes to a Rider series. I even think the plot works quite well as they go through the initial nine worlds, even if it does go to pieces afterwards. Oh, and it's World of Amazon is better than either the original Showa Amazon or recent Amazons TV series.

The only reason Foundation X is rubbish in W is because nothing came out of the plotline in the long run. Toei once again got scared of trying something new and went right back to their safe place.

They spent most of the series developing Museum, an evil organization that operates by giving Gaia Memories to random people in a manner resembling drug deals, only to then replace them with Foundation evil organization that operates by giving Gaia Memories to random people in a manner resembling drug deals. Replacing your villains with new ones that are functionally the same. It's like the Natives from Kabuto all over again.

It didn't help that their main on-screen representative was the Utopia Dopant, a character who was both barely any more relevant than a standard monster-of-the-week and quite spectacularly wooden.

It seems like a lot of fans wanted them to come back in subsequent seasons so that they could be the new Shocker...but we already have Shocker. Why would we need two of them?

You know, I'd say that Captain Shark should probably be in here, but he'd never set foot in a thread like this. He thinks his misguided opinions are "the truth". :p

I've always thought Den-O's TV series was great, but the tons of movies and crossovers after the show's end are completely unnecessary, and the main reason why people are tired of Den-O.
I also didn't enjoy Agito the first time around either. (wasn't until a second watching with better subs that I began to really enjoy it) I was also a big fan of Faiz. Seems like back in the early Heisei days, the big popular three were Blade, Faiz, and Agito. Chances are, many people discovered Kamen Rider through one of these.
Your feelings on Kyoryuger? Same.
Really?! :eek: People hate Magi Pink and Deka Pink?! .... I don't see why. (Also, never hated Gosei Red. Wasn't exactly hyped about him, but then again, the entire was just kind of bland. Not terrible, but not horrible either. Just middle of the road.)
Decade is best enjoyed if you're familiar with Multiverse theory/tropes, and therefore expect changes going in to it. And coincidentally, I agree that some parallel worlds were better than their original! Because you mentioned it, World of Amazon was interested despite the weak actor they got for him, but I would pay money to see World of Kabuto as a full show!

Godzilla Resurgence?

Also, how the hell can you put any Showa Gamera film over Revenge of Iris? Also, The Brave is the worst movie Daiei ever produced in their Kaiju films.

Godzilla Resurgence?
That's what they call Shin Godzilla in english, what's the problem?
Also, how the hell can you put any Showa Gamera film over Revenge of Iris?
Because Revenge of Iris ended on a cliffhanger and Gamera had no reason to blast his arm off and Vs. Barugon and Vs. Gyaos are kaiju classics.
The Brave is the worst movie Daiei ever produced in their Kaiju films.
You've never seen the whale kaiju movie with the rape scene or Warning From Space, I can tell.
