Happy Holidays to everyone! It's a special day and everyone has their traditions. I have many things I like to do on this day and one of those things is watching episodes of Kamen Rider Kuuga. Why Kuuga you ask, why not Double? Well it's because I watch Double way too many times anyways so I wanted to stick with an older classic for a tradition. If you love Kamen Rider you at least heard of Kuuga. This series brought life back to the franchise and it follows similar elements from the Showa era, but this series is easily the one that changed a lot of things. Finally, this series is very special to fans since Shotaro Ishinomori died during the production. So it's no doubt that this will be a very well memorable series.
Even some of the creature's scenes and action can be slowed down.
Overall- This is a true masterpiece even with some parts that slow down the experience. Everything looks great and yea the effects aren't the best, but it was the year 2000 and Toku series are usually low budgeted. If you love Kamen Rider or want a friend to get into it I think this is the right place to look. It's dark, but not too dark like Faiz. Has great progression so that there is always something to keep your mind on like Double. The fight scenes have much variety thanks to many forms and new items like most of today's rider series. Kuuga took new light on the single hero concept and completely made something different and original. It's a must watch for new and hardcore rider fans. Kamen Rider Kuuga gets an A
One more thing, Joe Odagiri is amazing! Also he doesn't hate his role
