Kamen Rider Skyrider Episode 23!
That screenshot says it all. What a way to celebrate coming back from vacation than with a double serving of Rider Kicking? All things said, this isn't as momentous an occasion as Stronger's appearance a few episodes ago, but we're starting to establish a status quo for the Riders here.
Also, we have yet another episode of Japanese media with a plot involving "Human Bombs." I always find this particular trope to be kind of gruesome for a children's show. All "shows for babies" jokes aside, it's a pretty harsh concept to wrap your head around!
Skyrider episode 23:
OH, and if you like Kamen Rider V3...
You should check out Generation Kikaida (dot com.) They sell the complete series of Kamen Rider V3, subtitled in English, with TONS of trivia, background information, and special features. They're a great company, and they do a lot to bring classic Tokusatsu to DVD in the US. It would mean a lot to them (and us!) if you would support any official English language releases of shows like Kamen Rider V3. Or Kikaider, Kikaider 01, and Inazuman (my personal favorite!)
Thanks for being so patient with us, everyone. Between the holidays, personal obligations, and "real life," things really got out of hand. But we're back now, and we're happy to bring you more classic Kamen Rider episodes!
Be sure to come back next week for Kamen Rider 24. And thanks for watching!
