Decade: Rating: List Type:

Excellent Tier

My ideal seasons of Kamen Rider. These are probably the seasons where I will most often just pop on a scene/episode when I'm feeling down.
People who added this item 14 Average listal rating (6 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 6.8

Rinko Daimon | Mayu Inamori | Haruto Souma



Favorite Hero: Mayu Inamori / Kamen Rider Mage
Favorite Villain: Medusa
Should Have Been a Female Rider: The Green Mage's wife. (You don't bring in Sailor freaking Moon and have her just be a pregnant damsel in distress!)
One True Pairing:
BrOTP: Haruto & Rinko
Favorite Episode: The Magic Land net movies! (Kamen Rider Detectives? Great! Shunpei is the star and Haruto is his cheerleader? Genius! Medusa is Kamen Rider blind? Comedy gold! Koyomi the fortune teller? Super endearing.)
Favorite Insert/Character Song: There are so many good ones, I can't choose!

Least Favorite Hero: The two male Mages. They're introduced a bit too late and take away from Mayu's story.
Least Favorite Villain:
NOTP: Gremlin/Girls
Least Favorite Episode:
Least Favorite Insert/Character Song: The Finale of the Finale

Erika Satonaka | Gamel | Eiji Hino & Ankh



Favorite Hero: Eiji Hino / Kamen Rider OOO
Favorite Villain: Gamel (He's a refreshing take on a villain, especially compared to the actor's previous role on Sailor Moon.)
Should Have Been a Female Rider: Erika (That net movie is canon! Fight me.)
One True Pairing: Ankh/Popsicles
BrOTP: Eiji & Ankh
Favorite Episode:
Favorite Insert/Character Song: POWER to TEARER (with honorable mention to "Time Judged All")

Least Favorite Hero: N/A
Least Favorite Villain: Mezool, if only because of the frustrating fact that the female villain's sole defining trait is that she's female.
NOTP:
Least Favorite Episode: The W crossover movie. (Who the hell let Inoue get his stank all over OOO?)
Least Favorite Insert/Character Song: Ride on Right Time

Nozomi Takai | Mamoru | Kazuya Misaki



Favorite Hero: The artificial Amazons, Mamoru & Iyu.
Favorite Villain: Nanaha / The Original (I knew she wasn't really dead!)
Should Have Been a Female Rider: Why do they keep bringing in Sailor Moon if they're not gonna let her be bad ass?!
One True Pairing:
BrOTP: Mamoru & the team
Favorite Episode:
Favorite Story Arc: Haruka's idealism vs Makoto's realism.

The Benchmark Tier

These seasons are the barometer for what I think is good Kamen Rider. Not amazing, but the lowest you can be while still being a good show.

The entire Takeshi crew.

Favorite Insert/Character Song: Kiwamareba Ongeki!!

Least Favorite Hero: Any of the non-regular characters (plus late-series Zanki)
Least Favorite Villain:
NOTP:
Least Favorite Episode: Episode 34 (Beloved Bonito). While the entire stretch from 31 to 39 is pretty bad, 34 is just hands down horrible. (Although, the Decade episodes are the downright WORST, but those are Decade episodes not Hibiki episodes.)

Poor and/or Forgettable Tier

Seasons that I think are just plan bad and/or did not leave a lasting memory on me outside of maybe a few small things.

A (personal) ranking of every Kamen Rider series that I have seen thus far.

Yes, the American adaptations are included because why not? There's only two of them so it's not like they can make up their own list. (Plus, they're still actually called Kamen/Masked Rider anyway.)
