I really don't understand what's up with the Den-O hate. Especially given that the haters just can't seem to find proper explanations for their hate other than being uninformed.
Ok, since you asked, I'll tell you my reasons, which I suspect are your reasons for liking it.
1) I hate, hate, HATE the slapstick nature of it. I don't want a lot of comedy in my kamen rider, I want a serious darkness and/or weirdness.
2) The "taros" costumes are especially cheap looking, although that may be because you see them more than any other costumes.
3) I seriously didn't find any understandable plot. I never understood the boat on the lake thing and what exactly happened there.
4) There was nothing really scary about the bad guys, they didn't seem to even have a real reason for what they were doing. Orphanochs, Worms, Fanguire, etc. seemed to be a threat...nothing threatening by the Imagin.
I could keep going, but those are the most obvious reasons I dislike it.
Hibiki and Faiz were actually fairly popular. Kabuto, not so much.
I suspect that is because Kabuto was almost a little too much like a repeat of Faiz. The characters and plot were very similar.
