Kamen Rider Agito (仮面ライダーアギト Kamen Raidā Agito, Masked Rider ΑGITΩ), is the eleventh installment in the popular Kamen Rider tokusatsu franchise. The series represented the 30th Anniversary of the Kamen Rider Series. The series was also a joint collaboration between Ishimori Productions and Toei and was shown on TV Asahi from January 28, 2001, to January 27, 2002. The catchphrase for the series is "Awaken the soul" (目覚めろ、その魂 Mezamero, sono tamashii).

Bad Qualities

  1. Supposedly this show is meant to be a direct sequel to Kamen Rider Kuuga, however it does a poor job within it's execution and how it connects within the aforementioned show.
  2. It presented some unlikeable characters, such as;
    • Toru Hojo who may be the show's worst character in the entirety due to his antagonistic and mean-spirited nature towards Makoto.
    • Kaoru Kino/Another Agito is an unnecessary addition and is somewhat forgettable due to the very little focus given towards him.
  3. The Lords are easily one of the franchise's most forgettable villains, outside of having really decent suits, there was nothing much brought within the table.
  4. While it is nice to see a show like this, Agito had nothing to bring within the table as far as being an anniversary season just marking it as a standalone show (Despite celebrating the franchise's 30th anniversary), which may turn off some audiences and fans alike, who are fond of the anniversary aspect.
  5. The 2nd opening theme, or rather the remixed version of the opening theme, is not as even remotely as memorable and is just horrendous due to it's Techno music nature rather being forced in BGM rather than an actual song.
  6. Some of the episodes to be found were poorly written, most notably the infamous 28th episode.
  7. The finale was underwhelming and the final battle presented was rather lack-luster.
  8. It aired with the infamous Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, which also failed to celebrate it's franchise's anniversary and for those who aren't fond of both shows may consider it as one of the worst pair-ups to ever exist.

Good Qualities

  1. There are still some likeable characters such as Makoto Hikawa/Kamen Rider G3, Ryo Ashihara/Kamen Rider Gills, Mana Kazaya and SAUL.
  2. The funny moments are very entertaining to watch, specifically Hikawa's clumsy nature.
  3. As stated above, Agito is just a standalone rider season, despite marking it's franchise's anniversary, which may interest those who aren't really interested with anniversary seasons.
  4. It had a decent summer movie, most notably Kamen Rider Agito: Project G4
  5. Unlike Gaoranger, it actually celebrates the franchise's anniversary on the correct year (2001 rather than 2002).
  6. Because Agito is considered as an average season of Kamen Rider, met with mixed reception, most of it's high points could be read within the Best TV Shows Wiki.
