I liked Hibiki. It was risky using the music motif due to its absurdity, then again "fruit samurai" and I hope Rider takes more risks in the future. This Rider series had really likable characters sans Kiriya (but made up for it as Zeronos). The main rider himself was a pretty cool dude. Laid back and never got serious unless needed to. There were some moments where he was polite to the makamou making it more amusing. And who doesn't like the Hibiki salute. The second half of the season, as much as I was disappointed, there were some high spots. I loved the Oni no Yoroi...and its homage to Ninja Arashi. Then again, Zanki, man. Also, what was wrong with Hibiki's flame breath? That was awesome. So you're saying Hibiki opening his face plate will scare children? Really?
