Really good!
10 November 2004 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I had seen a few episodes of different kamen rider shows my uncle brought back from japan. I loved kamen rider since i was a kid. When I saw the DVD set I had to get them. I was really glad I did. The Kamen Rider Black series is amazing. The story is really good. The monsters are cool. The special effects are.. funny sometimes. What I really love about this show is that it doesn't seem like a kids show. People actually die and it doesn't always have a happy ending..

The acting in this show is also pretty good. Not amazing but good. I love the antagonists in this show. The gorgom cult.

Overall this was a really good show. I haven't seen much of the other kamen riders so I cant compare it but I'm about to see the v3 shows soon.
