Loved the show and its characters. I loved the way how the story moved. I rated this as my favorite rider show until Gaim came along.

I like how the story goes about the detective and city of Futo. I got a solid 4 for that continuous battle between W, Accel and Dopants.

Gave it a five. Look up: Detectives, noir, family, interesting powers, sleek suit, excellent second Rider, love and revenge, a fully fleshed out world.

This was the first KR I watched after going back and watching all the old Heisei KR series. And boy was I not impressed. After rewatching it recently I actually quite like the main cast and the plot is fun. Though I still despise the supporting cast of pointless comedic characters. I give it a 3.

W is great. Excellent pacing, characters and story arcs (maybe except Heavens Tornado). Top tier Rider series.

W is amazing. While Decade was technically the first Kamen Rider I watched it was only 30episodes and it had a lot of tributes and references to older series I hadn't seen yet. It did get me hype to watch them though but it's not a special to me as W is. W was the first Rider series I saw and it was just so cool, so interesting. It had be questioning "Why haven't I been watching tokusatsu longer" I love it.

W was the first Kamen Rider series I watched to completion and it got me following every Heisei Rider since then, no matter how bad the series for those riders were IMO. Shotaro and Philip are definitely HARD BOILED.

This is my most favorite rider of all time. Even I was used to watch Black as a kid, this still beats everything every KR I've watched. I love how they transforms using a USB which is called of course, a Gaia Memory. The comedic skits combined with detective drama is very good for me. The ending really got me so much, I cried manly tears. I really salute this series.

W is tied for first in my books on the Rider side of Toku, its just the feels it gives, the action is solid but not overpowering and the humor is pretty good. the only downside i would have had to give it is the way certain Midbosses are handled, like Nazca 1. I really enjoyed the music of w if nothing else, just gotta love WBX.

W was the first KR series I ever watched and I completely blame it for getting both myself and my girlfriend (at the time) sucked into Tokusatsu as a genre. The costumes were amazing, the character motivations were top notch and I really like how they fleshed out the world to the point where even the city began to feel like a character itself. For me, W remains my top KR series and only Drive has come close to dethroning it from that spot. I give it a Hard-boiled.
He is delightfully devoid of anything resembling scruples or a conscience. It is amazing what a man can accomplish for his lord when he is without the burden of a soul.

Soon, old crimes shall be avenged.

This show is amazing. Shoutarou and Philip, the two-in-one Kamen Rider, they were just brilliant. They got along so well and meshed quite easily with each other that they made the concept work. They're a single character while being two individual characters at the same time. They're similar yet different. Two halves of a whole. The plot was good, acting was good, costumes/muic was good; it's hard to find flaws with the show. Kamen Rider W is hard-boiled.

The latter half got a bit confusing but overall the series had a great balance of drama and humor. If it weren't for Gaim, this would be my favorite. I give it a 5 because it's not really fair to any other series to compare it to Gaim.

Absolutely my favorite Kamen Rider(s) of all time. I loved the OP, the (very very bright but still somewhat) noir detective theme, the entire cast, and the overall story were all amazing. That second to the last episode was one of the best "endings" to a KR series, while the last episode was a great epilogue.

Give this a 5, no doubt.
W and Gaim are for me the best series so far. They are perfect in their own way.
Gaim with it's plot and intrigue, it's keeps you awake and excited like a sweet and sour lime punch.
W on the other hands, with it's story gives you a warm, homy and cozy feeling just like an autumn breeze.
