How long should I "give it a chance"?

Because having more riders than a Sentai team can be good.

Gotta say, I was pretty deep in the series before I warmed up to Tendou as a character. I preferred pretty much EVERY other rider over him, with maybe the exception of one of the TheBees. Drake always struck me as a pretty slick character, always wanted him to have more screentime.

I agree, Drake was cool, but the actor was busy with his singing career, so they had to write around his schedule.

Hey new to this forum, but I'll make my first post here as Kabuto is my favorite Rider.

As to the answer, going to agree with everyone who said 1-20ish was great.

Also, I can kind of see why
SpoilerShow
Kagami or Gatack
should've been the main rider, seeing as how Tendou's character is already developed from the start. I guess that's what makes him unique among the other Riders and their series.

regarding Kabuto, this is my favorite KR series (I watched 11 Heisei series and OOO 12th and 2 showa series). I say if you don't like it, make time to finish it. as for me, I watched Den-O and I hated it. But I sat down, watched it until the last episode and eventually found the good things about it. Well you can do that to Kabuto series as well... :D
Can't believed you hated Den-O!!Almost everyone loved it!
Den-O really did not get into me...just like other people don't like Kabuto...it depends on the preferences...

Ryotaro is a very good character but everything else was not for me..

Cannot stand Tendou Souji of Kabuto

Post by HereticMIND » Mon Jan 16, 2012 5:38 pm

Ok, so I've watched all of the first two episodes of Kamen Rider Kabuto to find out that the main protagonist (Tendou Souji) is basically
SpoilerShow
a goddamn Gary-Stu
and so far
SpoilerShow
none of the other characters have called him out on it
.

It's seriously annoying. Very, very annoying.

Maybe it's just the way the actor is portraying the character or maybe it's how the character was written in the first place, but I'm seriously pissed off here and I'm considering not wanting to watch the rest.

Please tell me it gets better, you guys. Please tell me that this series gets better.

Pretty much sums it up for the majority of the series for him, but most of the other characters (especially Kagami) are the ones that have better focus.

You're probably gonna like what happens to him

in Decade's Kabuto World arc. Especially in light of the implications of excessive Clock Up use.

I definitely think that people whose main reason for initially disliking the show is Tendoumichi should wait for the other riders. After all, Kabuto is known for having several of them. As for someone being a better main rider, in my humble opinion it doesn't matter that much because you can choose who you want to focus on while watching the show. To me, Tendou is a lovely main rider, but Sasword and the Hoppers were the best thing in the show. And of course there's Gatack and Drake, a lot of people love them. Sure it may be that the whole show itself just isn't for you, and I can't even imagine not liking it so my opinions may not be helpful, but I'd still encourage people to keep watching. The ending is satisfying and I can't recall it leaving any loose ends, but there's not really some big payoff you should be looking forward to. So if after 30-40 episodes you don't care about the characters and the story, give up.

Absolutely. Watching Kabuto is like like watching Goseiger: the title character(s) aren't who you should be watching the series for. Watch everyone else. Tendou's just the guy who pushes the story forwards.

I liked Kabuto for the dark tone it had. That's what got me hooked. And it ended up being the first Kamen Rider Series I watched. As for the talk of Riders, I liked Sassword. I don't know why. (I think the actor had something to do with it since he's been in other shows I loved)
