Trivia

As with Ultraman: A Special Effects Fantasy Series (1966), this series, created by manga artist Shôtarô Ishinomori, gave birth to another popular type of modern Japanese superhero: The "Henshin" (Japanese for "transformation") Hero. These are normal-sized superheroes who transform into a cyborg, android or mutant by performing a "henshin pose," and usually fight their enemies with martial arts, minimal weaponry and a finishing attack (usually a flying kick). The Sentai Series (starting with Ishinomori's Secret Squadron FiveRangers (1975)), Metal Heroes (starting with Uchû keiji Gyaban (1982)) and hundreds of other contemporary Japanese superheroes were an offshoot of this historically-important genre.

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
