Yasuko Kobayashi's Sense of Humor in Kamen Rider


After considerably being known for darker and edgier stuff, like Inoue, Kobayashi also shifted into the world of lighter stuff which can be evident with Shinkenger for Super Sentai.  In fact, one may take a look at this series...


Compared to Kamen Rider Ryuki, Kamen Rider OOO was basically a lighter and softer season which had these kinds of jokes.


Eiji was no better of an idiot than Shinji in Ryuki, in fact here he is even worse.  I thought it was funny though.  I'm just glad that Eiji isn't like Spongebob Squarepants in terms of character development or having some useless gags going around.


Obviously blatant silliness.  Yup, I thought Haim Saban ahem Kosei Kougami the Cake Boss can seldom get annoying aside from the fact he's a cheapskate of sorts.  Well Kougami may not be as annoying as Mr. Krabs in Spongebob but still, his cake gags can get really old fast.  I guess Kobayashi was fond of parodying real life people and I wonder who Dr. Maki was a parody of.  I'd say Kobayashi's humor in Shinkenger is better than this!


Shock value in a non-tragic way.  There was one episode that made it look like Akira Date had died but he didn't.  While it was a pleasant surprise but it can get pretty annoying since that is not funny.  Come on, NOTHING is funny about pretending to be dead!
