Toshiki Inoue and Yasuko Kobayashi: The Kamen Rider Series They Did Together

So yeah Yasuko Kobayashi and Toshiki Inoue did some work together.  Remember Toshiki Inoue was the secondary writer of Timeranger to the point I even thought he wrote how Time Fire died.  Now moving on...


Toshiki Inoue was the head writer of Kamen Rider Agito while Yasuko Kobayashi was the writer of episode 28.  I dunno what degree of influence that Yasuko Kobayashi had or if she co-wrote some episodes with Inoue but so far, Agito was a really good series that for me even beats Kamen Rider Black.


Yasuko Kobayashi's first headwriting job was with Kamen Rider Ryuki.  Toshiki Inoue wrote episodes 7-10, 15-16, 24-25, 29-30, 41-44 and the Alternate Ending.  For me, this is where a lot of the darker and edgier come together considering this show imo was pretty dark and depressing but with the interesting Rider War story.  Things go from bad to worse then back, of course knowing Kobayashi and Inoue, they seem to love really cruel villains with the likes of Kamen Rider Ouja imo the best evil Kamen Rider ever.  So yeah, Kobayashi had Inoue as a secondary writer which for me, this show had a lot of cool concepts.  However she screwed up big time with the "Reset" ending which was bad compared to Sharivan since it threw out character development out of the window.  Inoue's alternate ending is better though the finale isn't great either.  So I guess Kobayashi took a bad direction with Ryuki's rather dumb finale.


So Toshiki Inoue and Yasuko Kobayashi were secondary writers for Kamen Rider Decade.  Toshiki Inoue did 20-23 and Yasuko Kobayashi did 14-15, 24-25 which also totals four episodes.  For one, this series was a disaster and both of them were somewhat burned out.  Not surprising Kobayashi did 14-15 which focused on Den-O and 24-2 which she wrote the IMO slightly better than MMPR/Masked Rider crossover with the Shinkenger/Decade crossover which.  For Inoue he did the Dark Riders arc and the Diend arc.  So yeah, this show was so much a pain IMO.
