Kamen Rider W (仮面ライダーW[ダブル] Kamen Raidā Daburu, Masked Rider W) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series. It is the eleventh series in the Heisei period run and the twentieth series overall.

Why It Rocks

  1. Likable characters such as Shotaro Hidari, Phillip, and Ryu Terui.
  2. The friendship between Shotaro and Phillip felt real.
  3. The fight scenes are well choreographed.
  4. Amazing theme song.
  5. It's a major improvement over its predecessor, (Kamen Rider Decade). which is a previous awful shortest Kamen Rider season, and even the infamous Kamen Rider Kiva.
  6. The humor is decent.
  7. The concept of two people being one Kamen Rider is interesting and executed really well.
  8. Akiko's Slipper
  9. The villains are likable and fun to watch.
  10. Decent OST.
  11. Phillip's death scene was really sad.
  12. It aired first alongside Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (Ep. 28-49 for Shinkenger) and secondly aired alongside Tensou Sentai Goseiger (Ep. 1-28 for Goseiger).
  13. It had a team-up movie with Kamen Rider OOO.
  14. It was the new beginning of the Neo-Heisei Era.

Bad Qualities

  1. Akiko Narumi can be very annoying and unlikeable at times. (depending on your point of view)
  2. The finale wasn't that good.
  3. Phillip's revival felt kinda flat.
  4. It did team up with Kamen Rider Decade.
