Let's Go!! Rider Week continues with the first Kamen Rider to fly.
After five connected series, it was decided to start fresh and make the new series a stand alone return to the original's themes. As such, 1979's Kamen Rider (often called New Kamen Rider) featured a completely new cast, and pitted our young hero transforming into the mighty Kamen Rider to fight against the forces of Neo Shocker. The show continued as a separate series until the 20th episode, when Kamen Rider Stronger appeared to aid the young warrior. Stronger would dub the new Rider "Skyrider", and officially welcome him as the eighth Kamen Rider.
Skyrider stands out from the others; not only being based on a locust instead of a grasshopper, but having the power to fly.
