Is this the first Kamen Rider series with an OP and an ED?

That bike sequence in episode 2 was a bit too much of an ugly CGI fest. I know Kamen Rider's never had a big budget, but it seemed to look particularly bad even for it. The truck and the ants looked like they came out of Ryuki.

Other than that, standard stuff, once again.

No, showa always had it (by the way, the ed songs for kamen rider black and black rx, even tho they were in showa era, were just classic, especially the one in kamen rider black, make sure to check them out !)....they last time we had an ed, I think, was in kamen rider kuuga


The major impression I have for this episode...The main character has managed to say the inspirational quote! Therefore, he got the bike for the reward!!

Worrisome second episode, similar issue with Takeru and crew, hopefully this series prove me wrong once we got the evil Rider reveal.

Not a fan of the CG Rider Kick although I kinda like how writer creatively come up with how kick from above can be performed by anyone who used the book.
CG bike is OK-ish, still, considering the scale, this might as well the last we saw the bike; looks like they will burn everything from start to ensure they have not many narrative burden other than upgrade forms in later episode. Not to mention Buster have enough death flag just by preview. LOL.

The last were KR Black/RX & KR Kuuga IIRC. Black's ED is still the best one IMO. It's a neat 80s melancholic song fitting for a rider's ending:

Hibiki also had an ending during the first half, the awesome "Shonen Yo!"

And with this, I'm done with Saber. I just can't. The only thing that I can still call a positive is the sword fighting choreography, but even that only seems to last like 2 minutes per episode.

The CGI is atrocious, the sets look almost as fake as the CGI, the writing is weak, and the acting is cringe worthy. Things feel like they're just happening without proper buildup, and yet again Saber can just naturally know how to use his new power instantly for no apparent reason.

Can anyone recommend another Rider series with similar quality to Gaim, in terms of all the things I've mentioned here about noticing in regard to Saber?

If you want something as colorful & silly-looking as Gaim but also rather serious with some better actors & stories, I recommend KR Den-O, KR Double (W), KR Ozu (OOO), KR Ex-Aid & KR Build.

The first three sound familiar, so I've probably been recommended them before. Will have to check at least one of them out.

Thanks.

I'd recommend Build first and foremost, since it's pretty much the absolute best KR series to date. Obelisk's other recommendations are good as well, just be warned that Den-O is heavy on comedy which may not be what you're looking for and does feature over the top acting.

Build is so good, I'm still having a "Build high" even now. Wanted to buy the blu ray box set but then the Ultra Q 4k blu ray come out and I used the money I've been saving for that. Still waiting for that sequel novel which sadly got postponed due to COVID

Btw, I don't know if this has been posted before or not:

Yeah, Den-O can be like Three Stooges on the surface but after you see past that, there are earnestness, seriousness & deep moral to the story & characters which can be more potent than some Neo-Heisei Riders.

Den-O despite all the comedy moments, IMO did a great job on their serious moments as well, so it's a pretty decent series in the end to me.

if you want the opposite of that, either kuuga or ryuki. Especially Kuuga. The hero spends the entire series figuring out how it works

Yeah, if GBD doesn't mind a more atmospheric, slowburn & less silly-colorful KR series, I can recommend some other shows too.

Well, Gaim is not the top on my book so for recommendation I'm not sure about what kind of content you're looking for.
Also, weren't Kouta himself instantly learn all weaponry on his new form? TBH among Gaim Riders only Takatora who made sense to master all weapons from start.



That aside, my list is:

My favorites for series as an overall: Kuuga, Agito, 555, Blade, W, Build;
Good but heavily carried by the casts, so if you not into the characters or acting after several episodes feel free to skip: Ryuki, Den-O, OOO;
Got a lot of praise, somehow doesn't work for me after halfway the series: Gaim, Ex-Aid, Zero One;
Come with classic flavor, IMO not for those looking for whole modern-kind of heroes or conflict: Fourze, Drive;
Feels like wasted potential, at least their movies are fun: Hibiki, Kabuto (still the best KR movie and HBV to this date IMO), Decade, Wizard, Ghost, Zi-O.

Hibiki was nice till the 2nd half.
And after seeing Zi-O, i feel like Toei should've made Decade having the past riders and Zi-O having alternate world riders instead.

Two episodes into Build, and I got some issues but they aren't deal-breaking. Will continue and hope they get better (main issue atm is the pacing).

Build only gets better with time. I remember a couple of things being poorly handled at the beginning (like Banjou and his girlfriend), but they got fixed later.

Up through episode 5, and yeah Banjou is being handled very poorly. But my biggest issue is still the pacing, which still feels like they made scripts for hour long episodes and then compressed them down to half hour length episodes.

It's still interesting enough to continue, but I'd probably be putting it on the hot seat if this were a weekly watch.
