Helloo~ I want to get my cousin into kamen rider, and I'm thinking of using Fourze since its the most shounen anime esque. Any other/better recommendations?
I can think of almost no better place to start than Kamen Rider Fourze! That’s such a good choice to introduce someone to the franchise, especially if they are coming from anime fandom. It’s got your high school hijinx, the concept of defeating your enemies and making them your friends we see in shows like Dragon Ball Z and it has that sense of increasing power levels and bigger threats without ever getting truly ridiculous and out of hand. That’s a great starting point!
Another good suggestion for someone coming from an anime background might even be the current series, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. Especially if that person is a gamer or like video games, they could get into the idea of using video games to transform and fight evil manifestations of game characters who have invaded the real world. It is another show with a great cast of characters, a hero who makes some of his enemies into friends and moments of great humor as well as shocking plot twists.
Plus, the head writer is the one who previous wrote the excellent Lupin III Series IV so he’s got a head for anime style writing and characters.
