Working on a little project where /m/ picks the top 5 Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series for me so I can find them and put them on my HD. Only want 6 series of each for space purposes.
Series I keep hearing about:
CONVINCE ME, /m/!
Also, Fourze and Gokaiger are already downloaded and off the list. May not be the absolute best in the eyes of "hardcore" fans, but I love both ten ways to death as they got me back into Toku. God I miss 2011...
Keep it civil fellas.
>/m/ picks top 5 KR/SS series
>actually it's only 4 because I picked one
Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider Black, Kamen Rider Kuuga, and Kamen Rider W.
Goranger, Battle Fever J, Liveman, and Jetman.
Okay. Well the four I mentioned still stand as they're all good series and hold some great significance to their franchise. Though Liveman's significance may not be so clear, but I picked it to represent Hirohisa Soda's era of sentai. Flashman and Changeman are two other series that could take it's place.
As for a fifth for both franchises, I find it hard to choose one with as much significance and quality as the others. Though, for sentai it should definitely be a modern series.
The best of Super Sentai:
- Zyuranger (because obviously)
The best of Kamen Rider:
Beetleborgs was awesome...when I was 10. That Flabber guy scared me when I was a manling. The Gavin x Gokaiger movie is what got me back into Toku.
Ultraman never impressed me.
Thanks. Almost forgot to add the first of each series.
How is Black RX, BTW? I remember loving Masked Rider WAAAAY back when and it was based on Black and BRX. When da hell they bringing Fourze to America?!
Not all of us can get into things the same time as you. Calm your man tits.
>Ultraman never impressed me.
Fourze got painful for me when they kept taling about friendship while pushing most of the KR club into irrelevance. The show basically admitted it wasn't trying with them when they get kidnapped and it turns out that Cosmic's friendship powerup works even when Gentaro has no idea where they are or what happened to them. Mebius did friendship as a major theme while avoiding that problem and didn't need any characters compulsively bring it up in the dialog.
