Then Kamen Rider Shin is Guyver.
No! Shin Kamen Rider is Kamen Rider if Toei didn't gave Ishinomori limits bacj in 1971. Even tought,we still see people turned into skeletons(what the skreeoonk?) in the first series.
I'm sorry, but no. Ishinomori's stuff was never that dark, and Toei did not give him THAT many limitations. Ishinomori clearly had fun making stuff for kids and young adults, but Shin was so obviously his answer to Guyver it's not funny.

is just forgettable and anti-climactic, but The Next
is hands-down one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Over half of the film is spent on a story that feels ripped right out of a bad J-horror film that has absolutely nothing to do with Shocker. It's pointless, distracting, and poorly directed. I HATE The Next
with a burning passion.
As for Kamen Rider Den-O
, I'd watch the series and the first movie since both of those are extremely fun. Everything from Climax Detectives
on is kind of skippable, although I'd check out Chou Den-O Trilogy Episode Blue
for it's great characterization of Kamen Rider NEW Den-O and Teddy, and Let's Go, Kamen Rider!
for the sheer amounts of Kamen Rider fanservice (that unfortunately has a piss-poor conclusion).
