The Kamen Rider series was revived with Kamen Rider Kuuga in 2000. The series built the foundation of the Heisei Rider series. Kamen Rider Agito began after that and the series has continued on ever since.
The wind was also blown back in the sails of the Super Sentai series with Hyakujuu Sentai Gaoranger, which marked the 25th series.
The ikemen starring in the shows captivated mothers.
Gaoranger was a popular series that overall had a max rating of 11.5 percent. Even though the story was easy to understand, there were serious moments, which also interested adults.
The most important factor was the popularity of Noboru Kaneko, who portrayed Kakeru Shishi/Gao Red.
Toshiki Kashu, who portrayed Shouichi Tsugami, the lead character of Kamen Rider Agito, was also gaining attention. Not only were children captivated by Gaoranger and Agito, but so were their mothers.
Ikemen were taking starring roles in tokusatsu shows. “Handsome Fighters” were becoming known in the genre into the future.
