Now sadly Kamen Rider was only adpated twice for America and we all know how much the first attempt sucked, but the second one was good. Dragon Knight came around 2008 and adapted the 2002-2003 rider series Ryuki. It sure is a big time gap and the series was cancelled, but it was still good. Again there was original ideas used and there are big differences between it and Ryuki. Another thing is that it kept Kamen Rider. I guess they were trying to keep people away from the thought of Masked Rider even though Kamen means Masked. Well the series did keep some darkness with losing riders going into eternal slumber in a different world, it sort had a death feeling. The villian was even impressive sort of similar to Shiro giving the powers to certain people. Xaviax wanted to rule both worlds (OF COURSE!) and he was limited on who becomes a rider because of the mirror world. He was a smart villian and gave off the impression Lord Zedd had before he got goofy. They both had the look of having power and seem like the emperor, this was shown at times with Xaviax threatning riders. The series also used some of their own footage, but they had some bad editing with that at times when they had to use the original footage because of the time gap. This was a good attempt and there should be more in the future just not with Decade start with Double.
There were then Metal Hero series that were adapted and I barely remember some of those and one of those was Big Bad Beetleborgs! I loved this as a kid and there are still some moments I remember a lot like that one episode where they actually had Janperson in an episode or the Shadowborg arc. I do remeber the blue Jay Leno though and now he just creeps me out at times. For the other monsters they're okay, but pointless. The heroes maybe kids, but it was used better than Turbo with Justin. I dont like the fact they just get powers just because of a wish and now they have to fight evil because Jay Leno released the villians. This was adapted from one of the most popular metal hero series Juukou B Fighter. I only saw the first episode, but I have seen clips and MV's and I can tell I will love this series. I remember Shadowborg as my favoirte badass back then and now that I know more about Black Beet he is more awsome since there is more character behind him and he has one of my favoirte songs from toku. The villians were good there are the three goofballs and I bet they're not all goofs in B Fighter, but the leader uses a similar method in American Toku or Toku in general which is the emperor feel and in the final episode of the Shadowborg arc we see the heroes couldnt finish him off even after three deadly attacks. I didnt like how he was then tossed aside for the new villians because I would love to see those two groups work together.
"Its offical, you suck."
So those are some of American Toku series that I remember or love the most, I will easily try to find more again like Beetleborgs and thanks to Netflix that is pretty easy. Even with some good ones from America there are a lot more original toku series I love.
