American Kamen Rider

OH BOY MORE TRAILERS!!! I apologize, but I can’t help it. Really…. Anyways, as some of you might know, the 12th Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Riyuki, is set to have an American adaption done by Steve Wang, the guy behind those awesome Guyver movies. It is going to be called Kamen Rider Dragon, and is supposed to be airing sometime in the next month or two on Cartoon Network in the US. of course this has been met with some terpidation and cries of NOOOOO and WHYYYYYYY by many fans of the genre known as tokusatsu, of which Power Rangers is probably the best known example of here in North Americaland. However, with the release of the trailer, which can be seen HERE , reaction to the original announcement is turning into a HOLY CRAP YES! Instead of going with the traditional inane overly moralist kiddy fair that Power Rangers is, this is looking like a far more darker series with cool bikes, cool fights, cool cgi, cool ladies, and cool evil generals in super cool government conspiracies. Sure, there is a touch of cliche to it, and yes, they are totally going to be shilling out the toys and gadgets at your local mega toystore, but damn does this look like a lot of fun and I am pretty sure that once you see the trailer you will agree.
