Since it’s debut in 1971, the Kamen Rider series has become popular throughout generations, regardless of age or gender. Earlier this week a hashtag was started “#自分がライダーオタクになった原因あげろ” or loosely “The reason I became a Rider otaku.”
Since the hashtag began, over 10,000 tweets and counting were shared.

Kashu was pleased he was allowed to wear the suit, even though he could transform otherwise.
