YMMV / Kamen Rider Hibiki

  • Awesome Music: For a series that has weaponized sound and musical instruments, it is to be expected to have a lot. Kagayaki, the 1º opening, takes the cake.
  • Broken Base: The second half of the series. The general consensus seems to be that those who liked the mold-breaking approach of the first half disliked the second, but those who preferred the franchise's more traditional style prefers the second half over the first.
  • Epileptic Trees: Shuki, the third female Kamen Rider recognised by canon after Femme and L'arc, and the third to be killed off after an all-too-brief stint.
  • Game Breaker: Hibiki Soukou/Armed Hibiki.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: Unfortunately, this series didn't gained time enough to become a favorite.
  • The Scrappy: Kyosuke Kiriya, who was so despised that when his actor was cast in Kamen Rider Den-O, the Scrappydom passed to his new character before he had even made his debut!
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: What many fans thought of the show following the Retool.
  • Tough Act to Follow: The second half of the series is became this due to the result of the series' Retool.
