Kamen Rider Ryuki: The Movie — Episode Final (2002)

This is one of Ryuki’s alternate endings and the home of Ryuga (Ryuki’s dark counterpart) and Femme. Femme is usually considered the first female Rider, but technically the previous series had two. Its main cast even make lingering cameos here almost as sly acknowledgement. There’s so much to recommend in the characters of Ryuki and it all feeds seamlessly into why they fight, but its endings universally fall apart making it hard for me to ask people to have faith in it. Ryuga’s existence plays perfectly into a theme of the series and Femme is honestly quite fantastic. Watch this for them.

If they’d managed to keep the logistics from shitting themselves even once, Ryuki could have been stellar.
