Trivia

Star 'Hiroshi Fujioka' fractured his thighbone in a motorcycle stunt for Episode 9 ("The Terrifying Cobra-Man") and was out of commission for a time. As a result, until Episode 13 ("Tokageron and the Great Monster Army"), his Takeshi Hongo/Masked Rider character was milked out for another four episodes by having him stay in costume (but played by another actor) or stock/unused footage of Hongo out of costume was used, and was dubbed over by voice actor Rokurô Naya. But this could not be carried out indefinitely, for after several options at the Toei Studio, they decided to introduce "Masked Rider 2"/Hayato Ichimonji (played by Takeshi Sasaki), to take over after the fallen star. After two guest appearances, Fujioka returned for good in Episode 53 ("Monster Jaguarman - Deathmatch by Motorcycle Fight"). The show then had two heroes (as opposed to one). See more »

A different type of superhero
28 August 2003 | by (Middlesex, UK) – See all my reviews

I've just seen an episode of Kamen Rider, and i've never seen a Superhero so dark, with such cool and dark villans. For a show made in the 70's,it can still attract newcomers. I think the only american superheroes that can come close to the darkness that is Kamen Rider are Batman, Spawn and Blade. I give this show a 10
