The Smart Brain corporation, the world's most powerful corporation, is trying to take over the world using Orphnoch, the next stage in humanity's evolution, to covertly kill off the human population. In pursuit of this, they develop three suits of power armor, called Rider Gear (Delta, Faiz, and Kaixa), to find and protect the Orphnoch King, who can fix a defect within Orphnoch DNA which causes their genetic structure to break down, leading to death. The Rider Gears are stolen by Hanagata, the Goat Orphnoch and former chief of Smart Brain. He sends them to his foster children (dubbed the Ryuseiji, after the school they attended) so they can stop the Orphnoch from achieving their goal. However, Rider Gears were designed to be worn by Orphnoch, and humans are unable to activate the systems without undergoing genetic modification. A young loner, Takumi Inui, is unwittingly drawn into the conflict between the Orphnoch and humans and becomes Kamen Rider Faiz to save the life of Mari Sonoda, one of the Ryuseiji. The Smart Brain begins targeting him in an attempt to retrieve the Faiz Gear. However, there is division amongst the Orphnoch, as those who wish to co-exist with humans rather than kill them, begin resisting the Smart Brain, who in turn targets them as well. Most of these "renegade" Orphnochs are either killed, remain neutral or begin siding with the Ryuseiji against the Smart Brain. When the Tokyo police discover the Orphnoch are behind a series of bizarre murders, they begin operations to defeat the creatures, largely unaware of the various factions involved. They even begin performing experiments on captured Orphnoch in an attempt to find ways of destroying them, though this does not go well. The Orphnoch King eventually awakens within a young boy named Teruo Suzuki, whom Naoya Kaido and Keitaro Kikuchi saved and befriended. Now, it is up to the holders of the Rider Gears to band together and fight for humanity's survival. (Source: Wikipedia) Edit Translation

555 is good, don't trust a gray like that other reviewer on here for it.

The show is absolutely the best of the early rider shows that aren't Kuuga, and it slaps so hard only peons could hate it. The best Inoue work outside of Hibiki's second half. And maybe Changerion. Or Jetman. He really wrote more good than bad.

Anyways, Takumi is genuinely the best protagonist and its great how Kiba is an alternate protagonist as well. People who hate Kaido, Mari, Keitaro? Weak. All better characters than most Kamen Rider shows, which usually suck, lets be honest.

Also, Kusaka did nothing wrong.

This show takes forever to pick up, it took three attempts to watch this show and I finally was able to grip it enough. It's painfully slow and the characters feel so one dimensional. However when it does pick up it gets good, the fights and costumes are really well done. I can't really speak for the effects as this is an older Rider series, its pretty trash but still fun. It eventually gets slow again before it zipping itself off a bridge with its MASSIVELY ANTICLIMACTIC ending. Nothing gets resolved. One of the worst endings to a riders series. However if you do stick around you will find some enjoyment. I don't blame the actors for this, they did what they could but the story itself suffered greatly. Good everything else but the lack of plot and slow points hinders this series greatly. Man... Kusaka was the worst too.
