So was sharing a cool scene with a co-worker who only really knows PR and is passingly familiar with that other ones exist. That got me thinking of how to summarize the various Heisei Kamen Rider series (and Zero One) for someone with little familiarity. does this all seem accurate for bite-size summaries?

Agito - An amnesiac's history ties into a rash of "Impossible" murders under investigation by a special police unit with their own power armor
Ryuki - Japanese highlander with spandex and monsters from a mirror world
Faiz - Drama with the misunderstandings dialed to 11, involving fighting a secret conspiracy of intelligent zombies and using their own power armor against them.
