Kamen Rider Amazonz S1 now up on Amazon Prime!!!

For some reason they call it Amazon Riders, but the first season of Kamen Rider Amazons is now up on Prime. Translations seem fine, but I hate the black box surrounding them. Still, it's about time. First episode was amazing!

How? It only lets me change the font size, not the black background. It's stupid as hell though that I even had to turn the subtitles on manually in the first place. They should be set to ON automatically.

Amazon's subtitle system is horrible. They usually wind up mistimed as well.

Yeah, there were two lines that were mistimed.

Finished the season today. It was absolutely fantastic, though Amazon's subtitles suck ass when they are shown infront of a white background. There were times when the subs blended into the background, rendering them unreadable. Anyway, I got a lot of Agito and Kuuga feels from the show, which is great. I really hope it doesn't take Amazon another year to give us the second season as that would suck.

I finished S1 last night. And it was a lot better than I expected, in fact it was outstanding. They got me to actually care about what happens to the characters. I felt the pain as the Extermination team was disbanded. Not to mention
Spoiler Below:
what went on with Mamoru and his relationship with the squad, that poor guy
. If Season 2 is anywhere near as good as the first, Amazon had better get it soon! And speaking about the Extermination team, does anyone know if this is the first time a "monster hunting/fighting" team has been a featured part of a Kamen Rider series?

Season 2 starts off as a hot mess of new characters and gaps in time, but it backfills everything before its over and ends up a very solid story. Just be ready to be confused a little for the first few episodes.

Like what do you mean? Because Agito, Blade, Kabuto, 555, and Gaim all featured monster hunting teams.

That seems to be the norm these days whenever a show is split into two seasons. Gundam 00, Code Geass, and Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans suffered the same issue.

Ah, I didn't know that. Most of my experience with Kamen Rider are the Showa era characters.

Season 2 pays off, but its first half is a mess.

Hope they bring the movie over soon. I haven't seen it yet

Jesus, I know people told me that Amazons' second season was pretty bad, but what they didn't tell me is that it is utterly boring. It's so boring that even Iron Fist would be like, "DAMN!"

What the hell happened? First off, when the hell did they suck out the color Zack Snyder style while inserting lens flares Abrams galore? Secondly, there is no chemistry with the new cast. I don't feel like they are a team as half of the time they're just sitting in a room looking bored and the actors talk as if they were bored out of their minds. The thing that made the team from the first season great was there was a sense of comaraderie between the cast. None of that is present here.

Then there is the new kid's sudden interest in necrophilia. Like seriously? Does he really want to crack open a cold one that badly? Or he is just hoping for maximum shrinkage below his belt? Nevertheless, so far he is as interesting as wallpaper. He has no sense of personality, no individuality, and all he does is mope about. Then we have Banjou's actor, who serves no purpose whatsoever. Not to mention he and his friends are utterly unlikable. Then again, NO ONE in this show is likable so far. Everything is as monotonous as its color scheme.

What happened between the two seasons? At first, I was glad to finally get to see the second season since the first ended without completing its story. Now, I'm wishing there was no second season because it doesn't even feel like it is even trying to conclude the unfinished story. It seems to have started a whole new plot without explaining jack "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!" to the audience. Add on top horrible editing, unremarkable, misplaced music, and you have yourself a pile of "OH GODZILLA! WHAT TERRIBLE LANGUAGE!".

This is going to be tough to get through the remaining 10 episodes I have to watch.

Episode 8 starts to right the ship. It pays off imho, but the first half is really rough

That's just as bad as saying, well, the first 40 episodes suck, but the last 10 pay off.

Nah, i disagree with that math. theres 26 episodes to the series so three quarters of the series is worth it. Even if you are looking at the second season as standalone, it still isn't 80% off. A lot of whats going on does tie back heavily into the final episodes of season 1, so I'd say it's worth the slog, they really should have played it out chronologically though, because it doesn't appear to be going anywhere for a bit because of that bad decision
