Kamen Rider BLACK! Masked Rider Black! Or simple Black! These words are the top rated words that you can hear here in the Philippines when you talk bout Kamen Riders. 60% of Filipinos always talked about this Rider whenever a Kamen Rider topic shows up. Damn, why wouldn't they talk about Skyrider or Shin or even my favorite rider Den O for a change? Why always Black! Why o why!? Is it nostalgic or is it the only rider that is showed in our free channels in the early 90s, hahahahahaha, you guest it right! We Filipinos always goes back to our past, always the old day like Voltes V, Bioman or even Shaider, all those shows are rated high in our country, but what about Gavan, GO ranger & Combatler V. That is what we call stick to one.
