Amazing!!
28 December 1998 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This tv show is simply amazing. I've always been a huge fan of the Kamen Rider series, but "Kamen Rider Black" is by far the greatest Kamen Rider series to date. All Kamen Rider fans say it's one of the best, but many say it is the best. Tetsuo Kurata makes his acting debut as Kotaro Minami, aka Kamen Rider Black. Kurata-san makes a wonderful debut, you would have thought he's been acting his whole life. He was only 17 when KR Black first started. The plot, and the action is almost flawless. And the special effects are ahead of it's time. Only one complaint, the previous Kamen Riders don't even make a guest appearance in Black, but they do appear at the end of the next series, Black RX, for a handful of episodes.
