Masked Rider Black
Ask anyone from my age group about “Masked Rider Black”, I’ll bet that at least 75% have religiously watched or at least know or has heard about this metal hero. Oh Boy! I can still remember those days when I would rush my parents’ Sunday stroll at the old “Quad” (now known as Glorietta) so that I could watch my favorite Japanese metal hero named MASKED RIDER BLACK. Missing one episode of MRB was like missing the whole point of the week! Lots and lots of geeky boys like myself would wait the whole boring weeeeeeek to watch shows such as Masked Rider Black, Shaider Machine Man, Ultra Man, Masked Men, and a whole lot more Japanese hero shows!
Going back to this cool Japanese metal hero named “MRB”, who the hell wouldn’t want to be Masked Rider Black? With all his cool moves such as the “Rider punch” and the ultimate finishing move that no evil monster could survive; the “Rider kick”! Who would want to become MRB with his two incredibly envying battle motorcycles that have its mind of its own, the more popular one was named the “Rider buggy”. But if you ask me what I idolized or envied the most about being Masked Rider Black?? It would be his kick-ass entrance whenever he appears in front of the evil monsters! Thick clouds of smoke would blind the whole place of battle then our hero would slowly appear within the thick cloud of smoke with his Rider Stance! All this with a cool musical score playing along with the scene. This cool Black Japanese action hero totally rocks!!
