Toku Time: Kamen Rider Hibiki

(Part 1)

(Part 2)


  1. I tried watching the first few episodes and just couldn't get into to show. It was just way to different from the other Kamen Rider series I watched at the time. Plus it didn't help that this show wasn't originally a Kamen Rider series to begin with (or so I read).

  2. Great review EZ, I quite dig Hibiki but I think it helps if you try not to look at it as a Kamen Rider series.
    One thing though, you seriously need to update your equipment or something. The sound on this was just awful, and the camera footage looked really washed out. With guys putting out 1080p qualuty shows on YT now, the difference really shows.

  3. Great analysis. Hibiki could have been great, but instead it became a stereotypical of how executive meddling can ruin a series. There are too many things wrong with the second half that could have used a lot of improvement.

    Looking forward to the 50th episode -- and of course, your inevitable showdown with Wolzard.

  4. This reminds me of how awesome Hibiki was (at first). My thought is that if either of the two creative teams had done the entire show it would have been much better over all (especially the first team).
