Praise For…

“A few years ago, it was impossible to find Kamen Rider media in America. However, it is clear that the franchise is finally taking steps to rectify this (…). Hopefully, this means we'll see more American releases in the future so that American fans can more easily watch, enjoy, and support the content they love.” CBR.com

“Good action, a cool mythos, handsome-as-heck performers, and a story that keeps you watching episode for episode (…). Kamen Rider Kuuga feels very akin to modern superhero or sci-fi serials.” Nerdist

"Horror-infused art continues to impress." Anime News Network
