"Kamen Rider. They are masked heroes that protect mankind. Armed within the Deck, Kurogasa Kururugi ventures out to the prestigious Duel Academy as he sets on his journey to find his father and determine the path of his destiny. Henshin!"
A Crossover of Kamen Rider
and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
created by Fenikkusumaru
. The story begins with Kurogasa Kururugi, a young boy with a Kamen Rider deck featuring the Heisei era Riders, attends the prestigious Duel Academy and manages to make his way into Ra Yellow. Along the way he meets Jaden Yuki, Syrus Truesdale, Alexis Rhodes and Bastion Misawa. With them and some old and new friends, he begins his search for his missing father, the creator of the Kamen Rider Deck. However, the darkness of the Shadow Realm begins to surface once more and Kurogasa must make the heavy choices and the right moves to come out alive.
While it is a rewrite of the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, the story has its own blend of interesting OC's and various differences from the TV Series, such as the cameo appearance of the WWE, the Chazz-a-nova episode being discarded for a brand new plot (Much to the fans delight), and the various Kamen Riders from both Heisei, Neo-Heisei and Showa Eras, the series leaves you sitting at the edge of the chair.
As of July 9, 2013 the series is Completed with a Second Season in the planning stages.
