I feel ya. If it had instead been marketed as a Metal Heroes show but look some liberties with the "Metal" part then i'm sure it would have turned out much better.>Also am I the only one that feels early heisei had a more serious atmosphere to it.
Yes, since Ryuki had alot of gags and light hearted moments too. See >>178131136
but in general you're right in that they tend to throw in more of that in general now ideas, though i consider that is due to Den-O being the biggest rider show ever and being highly comedic in tone.
