| A unique Rider for a classic Tokusatsu
It's interesting to see how much has this series changed since it was released on 1971. We have seen a lot riders.... riders in space... riders that travel through time... riders that control speed and now this. In general Kamen Rider Wizard is a great season, specially if you are a Tokusatsu fan or a Kamen Rider fan. It has a lot of content to show at least on the first 10 episodes and probably you will end up liking it. If you are new to this series It will be better if you watch first Kamen Rider Decade and W to get some idea of how this tokusatsu(special effects in japan) works. The fight scenes are completely awesome, even if you have seen other Kamen Riders before this one... it will take it to another level. The magic rings and all the other combinations make every fight unique and memorable even though it uses the same background music. The music is one of the most important distinction elements between tokus like super sentai and Kamen Rider. The music of Wizard is beyond excellent, the tone of fantasy really sets every episode and for me is one of the most memorable soundtracks of the new hesei era. The acting in KR Wizard is good, I didn't see anything bad in it but it's surely better than Fourze. In Kamen Rider the especial effects are definitely an important factor. In Wizard most of the especial effects are great in general.... not like the ones we see on Hollywood movies but still pretty good and with lots of magic. Expect dragons, creatures, big explosions and giant hands... seriously if you give it a magic context to it... makes perfect sense. Trust me. Compared to Fourze I think it was really an upgrade in especial effects terms.

In conclusion if you really like Kamen Rider you will probably end up liking this season. It has great music, great action scenes, good story and good characters but don't watch it with too much criticism ... in the end all series have their little details and mistakes but in this one they will not distract you from enjoying the whole thing. If you are new to Kamen Rider watch it if you want but I recommend you first Kamen Rider Decade and W. Remember that this is a tokusatsu and not SUPER SENTAI... there are differences between audiences... this one has a more serious tone.
