This surely does clinches it.
The writing is good although it has a bit of flaws. I like the characters, they do fit the show well, same for the actors in their role.
The acting is not bad, it's like any other Kamen Rider show.
I've been interested in watching W for a long time and I'm happy that I get to since I like the soundtrack to be honest.
I say give this show a chance, it's very entertaining for Kamen Rider fans.
The Kamen Rider Series (仮面ライダーシリーズ,Kamen Raidā Shirīzu, translated as Masked Rider Series) is a franchise of manga and tokusatsu television programs and films created by manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori.
The various Kamen Rider media generally feature a motorcycle-riding superhero with a varying motif who fights supervillains often referred to as kaijin (怪人).
The franchise began in 1971 with the Kamen Rider television series which followed college student Takeshi Hongo and his quest to defeat the world-conquering Shocker organization.
Over the years, the popularity of the franchise has grown and the original series has spawned many television and theatrical sequels.

All generally involve at least one young adult male transforming into a Kamen Rider to fight various monsters and organizations linked to that specific Kamen Rider's origin.
As the series progresses, the Rider often learns more about the monsters in the series, other Kamen Riders, or the origin of his powers.
Early Kamen Riders wore scarves along with their costumes, but this practice was dropped after Kamen Rider Black until the appearance of Double. A trait shared among recent Kamen Riders is their ability to change forms and become stronger versions of themselves.
The first power up appeared in Kamen Rider Stronger which was used by the title character.
Kamen Rider Black RX had multiple forms, Roborider and Biorider.
Since then, every title Kamen Rider in the Heisei era has had at least one power up with Build having the most with 1607 form combinations following by OOO with 334.
Whereas all early Kamen Riders fought on the side of justice and peace, there have been numerous Kamen Riders in the Heisei era that have fought for personal reasons such as greed, revenge and the personal enjoyment of battle.
Because of this, recent Kamen Riders have become less eager to immediately join the battle of justice.
The one thing that all Riders have in common is the fact that their powers are all linked to the series' villains in one way or another.
Combat techniques generally remain somewhat consistent between series.

The Kamen Rider franchise has been parodied in various productions, both in and outside of Japan.
One of the main trademarks being parodied is the Kamen Rider henshin pose.
In live action, known parodies of the Kamen Rider series include "Kamen Renaider" (by SMAP's Takuya Kimura and Shingo Katori), which is a parody skit of Ryuki, "Kamen Zaiber" a parody of the original; "Kamen Norida" by the Tunnels, a parody of Kamen Rider 1 and the first series; "Kamen Rider HG" Hard Gay's parody of the original for a Japanese TV show; and "Ridermen", a short skit of a man who obvious parody of the Riderman on the set of Kamen Rider Kuuga.
Akimasa Nakamura named two minor planets in honor of the series: 12408 Fujioka, after actor Hiroshi Fujioka, known for his portrayal of Takeshi Hongo/Kamen Rider 1, and 12796 Kamenrider, after the series, itself.
Some series of the franchise have monsters in common.

http://archive.is/bwJQ. Retrieved 2011-06-30. Kamen Rider (Japanese: 仮面ライダー, Hepburn: Kamen Raidā, lit.' Masked Rider') is a tokusatsusuperhero television series and weekly science fictionmanga created by manga artistShotaro Ishinomori.
The original airing consisted of a total of 98 episodes and were broadcast from April 3, 1971 to February 10, 1973 on Mainichi Broadcasting System and NET (now TV Asahi).
The manga adaptation was also featured in Shōnen Magazine around the same period.
The series has evolved into a franchise with many subsequent annual iterations.
With his sanity and moral conscience intact, Takeshi wages a one-man war against Shocker's minions as the grasshopper-themed cyborg (改造人間, kaizō ningen)superhero Kamen Rider.
Another victim of the cyborg process, freelance photographer Hayato Ichimonji, became Kamen Rider 2 after Kamen Rider, who eventually renamed himself "Kamen Rider 1", saved him from Shocker's brainwashing.
Assisted by motorcycle race team manager Tobei Tachibana and FBI agent Kazuya Taki, the Kamen Riders fought in both solo and partnered missions against Shocker and its replacement organization, Gelshocker.
Many manga based on the original Kamen Rider series have been published, but only one was penned and drawn by Ishinomori himself.
However, when Takeshi leaves the story, the series diverge greatly. In the TV show, Takeshi travels abroad to fight Shocker in other countries, leaving Japan's protection to Hayato Ichimonji, a freelance cameraman who was experimented on by Shocker but saved by Takeshi, becoming the second Kamen Rider.
In the manga, Takeshi never left Japan. He was confronted by twelve "Shocker Riders" and was subsequently mortally wounded during his battle against them.
Hayato Ichimonji, one of the twelve Shocker Riders, receives a head injury during the fight and regains his conscience as a result.
He then turns against Shocker and takes Takeshi's role as Kamen Rider.
The live action TV shows portray the Riders as heroes strong enough to bring down Shocker, only to see it replaced by similar organizations led by Shocker's mysterious leader.
The Shocker Riders eventually appear in the TV series, too, but they looked different and had different abilities.
There were also only six Shocker Riders, rather than the manga's 12.
In February 2021, Seven Seas Entertainment announced they licensed the original manga for publication in one omnibus edition..
