Ratings Poll: Kamen Rider Decade

Post by DaVinci030 »

That "Onore, Decade" thing was so annoying even though Decade is the destroyer of worlds. The storyline about Tsukasa's journey and Rider War was so meh to me. How do you save the worlds from destruction?

And the Rider battles, I don't think so.

3 for me. For the hero henge, I like Gokaiger better than this. Also I like more Rider battles on Gaim (I haven't watched Ryuki much).

The only thing I like about it was that when they did Gokaiger they knew what NOT to do.

Decade was the first KR series I watched to the end. By the end of the series, I knew I was a lifelong Toku fan. I have since watched a lot of series that I would consider to have better writing (Gaim, Agito) better costume design (Den-O, OOOs) and much more likeable characters throughout, but I have Decade's journey through these alternate Rider Worlds to thank for sparking an interest that became an obsession.

Decade was the first show i started off with so I thought it was so cool. Then I saw other shows which made Decade's story plot really bad. Giving it a 2.5 for effort

Decade had a blueprint on what the show should have done and it was Kingdom Hearts. Instead we got a bunch of characters who fought other people's enemies without having their own enemy to fight against. Also I'm still mad that we never got the Movie Wars 2010 that should have been.

2. It was obvious they had an idea about where they wanted the endgame to go, but no one was really clear about the middle story or characterization. Decade was just a means to an end. As a standalone movie, it might have done okay, but the show itself was a mess of underdeveloped plot and loose ends.

The adult reason Decade was ended shorter because they suspended some staff because of the capital issues. A lot of CGI used still looks like shit. On 2009 global economic crisis. Japan not doing well. And Decade's stories doesn't go well but the such a wasting two parter lot of new cast. I can give 3 for the Travel to another world idea

This was my first KR and it got me into watching all the other Heisei KR series. I still remember some of the episodes fondly. That being said, it's really kind of a mess - especially since its ending was relegated to a movie. I give it a 3. (Note: this was my worst KR for a long time, until Wizard came around.)

I feel kind of guilty for voting, because so far this is the only KR series I've actually watched. LOL. I watched it because at the time I was watching Shinkenger, and they did that crossover, so I decided I wanted to know both sides of their stories. Anyway, since I had (and still have) no other Rider series to compare it to, I can only judge it by itself and my enjoyment of it.

So I gave it a 4. Once I watch more KR I will probably think lower of it, but the truth is that I enjoyed the main characters a lot, and Decade did seem pretty cool to me. He had attitude, cool attacks, a cool transformation, etc. Yeah, the story was definitely messy. It probably helped me though that I hadn't seen any of the previous Rider shows prior so that the inconsistencies in those characters compared to their respective series didn't affect me at all.

Decade progressing and still showing up in new Rider movies nowadays is pretty cool. One of these days I'll watch another KR series, but until then, Decade remains my favorite. LOL

When did they do that? Yes, Shou Aikawa left the show early but he still works for Toei (as evident by Toqger); there weren't any Hibiki screwjobs this time.
And, toku CGI has always and likely will always look like crap.

I gave it a 5. In hindsight, Decade is vastly inferior to Gokaiger. Buuut, I don't think we'd have Gokaiger without Decade laying the groundwork. And at the time, the stuff Decade was doing was still pretty amazing and nostalgic (before that got played out). We got mini retellings of our favorite series and we even had some great Rider guests.

Sure, the ending was butts, the story could have been better, and Tsukasa and Natsumi could have formally acknowledged their feelings for each other, but I still think it deserves credit for breaking some boundaries and doing something innovative.

Me? I gave the show 5 star... So, yeah... We all agree the show got a few issues, but Decade was the only reason I hooked up again with my favourite toku franchise, Kamen Rider.

I do believe Decade was meant for fans like me... To be able to bring HIM back,
Spoiler
Minami Kotaro
into the show, that was one huge point to gave the show 5 stars.

Not to mention every world that Decade and co visit, made me search and download the original series (Heisei Rider), thus bring me to Tv-Nihon.

It was really a journey through the Decade for me.

While the story was a mess (They never seemed to acknowledge why Tsukasa had amnesia, how he traveled to Natsumi's world, why he knew how to fight in the first episode, etc.) There were a lot of great moments and fights that made up for it. Additionally, while the story was poor, the characters were always enjoyable to watch.

Fittingly, Decade was more about the journey than the destination.
