As with Urutoraman: Kûsô tokusatsu shirîzu (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 Himitsu sentai Gorenjâ (1975)), Metal Heroes (starting with Uchû keiji Gyaban (1982)) and hundreds of other contemporary Japanese superheroes were an offshoot of this historically-important genre.

The first Kamen Rider series, titled "Kamen Rider" is what every american superhero series should be like. It's dark, it's action packed, it has a gloomy atmosphere. All the Kamen Rider movies and shows are like that, but this series went under fire for the excessive violence. This show is great, Hiroshi Fujioka and the rest of the cast do a great job in this 98-episode saga against Shocker, and Gel-Shocker. The action is great, but gets better as the show progresses. Hiroshi Fujioka did most of his own stunts in and out of costume, but got into a stunt accident early in the show, and left for a while. So they brought in a couple new characters, Special Agent Taki, and the next Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider 2!
