Kamen Rider Ex-Aid (仮面ライダーエグゼイド Kamen Raidā Eguzeido, Masked Rider Ex-Aid) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series. It is the eighteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-seventh series overall. The series started on October 2, 2016, joining Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger in the Super Hero Time line-up after the finale of Kamen Rider Ghost. Starting on February 12, 2017, the series was joined by Uchu Sentai Kyuranger in the Super Hero Time line-up. After the finale of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Build joined Kyuranger in the Super Hero Time line-up.

Why It's Excitement

  1. The concept of having a Kamen Rider based on video games as well as being a doctor is interesting and executed really well.
  2. It has an amazing theme song, EXCITE.
  3. A storyline which has depth and interesting, some even considered it as the best one during the Neo-Heisei era.
  4. It's a big improvement over Kamen Rider Ghost, which was a terrible Kamen Rider season from the previous year.
  5. There are some likable characters such as Emu Hojo, Poppy Pipapopo, Hiiro Kagami, Taiga Hanaya, Kiriya Kujo, Parado and Kuroto Dan.
  6. Masamune Dan was a very charasmatic and threatening villain, having Kuroto and Parado do all the dirty work so he can take over and rise on top as Kamen Rider Cronus.
  7. Kuroto Dan is also an entertaining and threatening villian as well.
  8. It has a few funny moments that don't feel forced into the plot.
  9. Great movies such as Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: True Ending, Another Ending: Brave & Snipe, Another Ending: Para-DX with Poppy and Another Ending: Genm vs. Lazer.
  10. It teamed up with Kamen Rider Build.
  11. It had a decent finale trilogy, and a novel made the storyline much complete.
  12. It's both aired alongside two shows Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger and Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
  13. It spawned a few internet memes, such as Cronus using the "Pause" ability, which is a reference to Dio Brando using The World to freeze time in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, and Cronus using the "Reset" ability, which referenced Killer Queen: BITE ZA DUSTO's ability in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable.
  14. HO-JO-EN-MU!

Bad Qualities

  1. There are some unlikable characters such as Nico Saiba and Ren Amagasaki.
    • Kuroto and (at least initially) Poppy falters in this area in this as well,depending on your view.
    • Additionally, Kuroto proclaiming himself as God, and his obsession with his "god complex" is rather unbearable sometimes.
    • And depending on your point of view, Hiiro was rather unlikeable during the fiancee arc (Saki's revival).
  2. It's crossover with Kamen Rider Zero-One was really mediocre and felt like a filler episode than a 2 part of web series.
  3. Some of the jokes tend to fall flat, and the slapstick humor is just a bit annoying in general.
  4. The costume design might not be accepted for some audiences.
  5. It had to air alongside the terrible second season of Kamen Rider Amazons.
