Journey through the Decade! What do your eyes see as they travel through the worlds, Kamen Rider Decade?
Well, I know what my eyes saw as I journeyed through the decade: ABSOLUTE CRAP.
I thought Decade would be amazing, but it is such a sore disappointment that I refuse to even refer to it as a Kamen Rider series.
Let's look at it.
The plot is silly: Decade has to journey through the worlds because his world is blowing up for some reason and also he's meant to be the destroyer of worlds that can kill all the riders ever. In my opinion, the plot of Decade was nothing but a poorly conceived fanfiction with a ton of holes and a completely nonsensical plot that tried to be "epic" but failed. Miserably.
The characters are some of the worst characters ever. Kamen Rider Decade, Tsukasa Kadoya, is the must infuriating Mary Sue I've ever come across. Godai was kind of a sue, but he was still well done. Tendou was an incredibly amusing sue. Decade is just... horrible. He comes across as an absolute douche, yet everyone likes him for some reason. All he's good for is speeching at the end and giving the morals that don't even fit with the theme of the original series in the rider worlds. And he can do EVERYTHING. He can play the violin, cook like a professional chef, and oh, KILL ALL THE OTHER RIDERS. Giant mary sue. No one else is memorable or likable, and Onodera Yuusuke is Yuuseless, completely unlike the original Kuuga.
I have to mention the fact that Decade isn't a crossover. It's not. A crossover is where one series interacts with another. I don't consider the AU worlds the original series, and the original riders barely appear, and their characters don't interact at all. Characters =/= the rider suits themselves. I don't care about the AU riders, but I DO care about the original ones! Do you know what a crossover IS, Toei?
The suits are just... bad. Why is decade pink? Why does diend have a radiator for a face? Why does decade complete look so goddamned silly?
I'll conceive that there's some decent action and the music is pretty swank. But that's about all I can say for decade's positives. It's a bad fanfiction of a series with horrible designs, a mary sue protagonist, and honestly, I'm not recommending anyone watch it. Maybe they shoehorned it in at the last moment and spent more time polishing double. Who cares, decade sucks.
