Kamen Rider Sky Rider

Kamen Rider (仮面ライダー Kamen Raidā, Masked Rider) is a Japanese tokusatsu television series. It is the sixth program in the Kamen Rider Series. It has the same name as the first series in the franchise, and fans usually refer to this series as The New Kamen Rider (新しい仮面ライダー Atarashī Kamen Raidā, New Masked Rider) or Skyrider (スカイライダー Sukairaidā) (after the main character) in order to distinguish it from the original. The show is called Kamen Rider Shin in Japan. The series was broadcast on TBS from October 5, 1979 to October 10, 1980, lasting 54 episodes. The series was a co-production between Toei and Ishinomori Productions, and was created by Shotaro Ishinomori. It aired every Saturday at 7:00 PM. The New Kamen Rider was intended as a revival of the original Kamen Rider, going back to the basic, essential themes established in that series, as opposed to the more complex and unique ones that preceded it, such as Kamen Rider Amazon and Kamen Rider Stronger.
