People are always like 'About time, the character had been around since episode 1'. Keeping in mind that this was the first series to have multiple riders (eg a main one and several sub ones), three by episode 6 is pretty good.

Also, I imagine that giant blade driven into ones shoulder would be quite painful.

>>> The definition of "multiple" in Merriam Webster and Oxford english dictionary are more or less the same, that is >>> "consisting of, including, or involving more than one". Two are considered multiple. So, the rightful rider series to have multiple riders was the first Kamen Rider franchise which features Kamen Rider Ichigo (1st) and Nigo (2nd). Not Agito series. Unless you are talking about the first Heisei series to have multiple riders.

Thanks XerBlade. At least someone can read.

I am aware what the definition for multiple is. I'm saying that both #1 and #2 are considered main riders. Both V3 and Riderman are main riders. Agito is the main rider, G3 and Gills are Deuteragonists. I do feel honoured you quoted a dictonary to prove me wrong however.

TL:DR, at least having all three riders in the series early on allows for lots of character development, rather than waiting for episode 20ish and then being shoved in the background when there story isn't needed.

First of all, Ryou´s entrance when he appeared in the tunnel was freakin badass.

Second, Gill´s reminds me of amazon like, a lot. I guess that´s intentional.

I kind of miss the down-earth-drama of the first shows of the heisei era, it was pretty neat, not that today´s shows are bad, but it gives a differente feeling and makes the characters more real.....or at least as real as a strange lizard-like man can get.

Anyways, thanks for the release!!

Is it just my optical illusion or Agito font feels rather small? Especially during karaoke :?

>>> I've got your point about the main rider and the Deuteragonist thing. Anyway, Oxford Dict.: Deuteragonist [ˌdjuːtəˈrægənɪst]: "the character next in importance to the protagonist, esp the antagonist". Based on the definition of Deuteragonist, Shadowmoon is rightfully considered as one. Black is the main rider, Shadowmoon is the Deuteragonist (and antagonist).
Conclusion: the rightful kamen rider series to have multiple riders was Kamen Rider Black.

Except that Shadow Moon isn't a Rider... Why are you people fighting over something rather pointless anyway?

On a side note, Houjou's a real bitch.

- Being a Kamen Rider doesn't have anything to do with whether or not the character in question is good (protagonist) or evil (antagonist). Antagonistic Kamen Riders: Shadowmoon, Ryuga, Ouja, Psyga, Kabuki, Glaive, and much much more.
- To own/possess and or to ride a bike is a strict rule (a must) no more for Kamen Rider. There's some example of Kamen Riders who don't own/possess and or ride bike in Kamen Rider tokusatsu franchise. Anyway,
Spoiler
Shadowmoon rode the Battle Hopper in the final eps. of Kamen Rider Black; which was his in the first place before Black shamefully stole it from Gorgom.


Case closed.

No... he isn't. He's just a character with some Rider-like characteristics. You see, back when Shadow Moon was created, one actually had to be an inarguably heroic good guy to be declared a Kamen Rider, hence why Riderman wasn't made one until he sacrificed himself to save Japan at the end of Kamen Rider V3. It wasn't until Ryuki that the definition of Kamen Rider was expanded to include basically anyone who kicked monsters to death while wearing a goofy costume, regardless of alignment.

Houjou isn't that much of dick. Well, he is, but its unjustified. I think they needed someone to antagonise the G3 team, it's just kind of done sporadically and makes me think he's just doing it for the lulz.

And Zeta is right, it is stupid to fight over this. I don't know if you've just discovered the dictionary or something, but there isn't any reason to pull it out for an exact specific reasoning to prove someone wrong, especially when taken out of context.

I greatly enjoy disliking Houjou. It helps that the G3 crew is pretty likable, so his scheming makes him seem even more dastardly than he really is.

Gills is definitely unique. The jagged protrusions that grow from his armor, the heel kick, gnawing on the Unknown... We've seen one of those elements here and there in subsequent riders, but not that combination. It's pretty impressive.
