Probably all of ZO's character development.

it would've been interesting to see a tv series be adapted from this, cause it's got some elements that pop up in later series. The opening reminds me of Kuuga, while Shin seems like a proto Gills.

I'm about fifteen minutes in. How the heck did we go from this bloody, gory Kamen Rider to the kidss show we have today, lol. This is crazy-different. I've always wondered where this Kamen Rider came from in other movies. So this was a movie Rider-only.

I'm guessing Toei knew they couldn't run this in the theaters, because it was released straight to video cassette. I couldn't imagine the bad PR that would occur if parents brought their kids to the theaters to see this.

I think naked breasts would be the minor thing compared to the gross transformation scenes in the movie. That probably would be a source of nightmares for kids.

Surely it would have been rated to restrict kids? Unless there is something I don't know about the Japanese rating systems. It was made for adults.

Unless I'm missing something, I don't see any warnings on the cover. It was 1992 Japan, wasn't it only in the late 80s that America itself developed a rating system?

I mean, it's Japan. Nudity's not as big a deal with them. Remember that we see butts in W for instance.
