Compared to anime fans, Kamen Rider and Super Sentai fans may not have as strong a representation worldwide but they are quite a passionate group, especially in the US, where Super Sentai have continuously been adapted into Power Rangers since 1993. Naturally, there are old-timers who enjoyed the earliest series in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, but there are obviously also fans of the Heisei Sentai and Riders as well as the latest Reiwa Era incarnations, Mashin Sentai Kiramager and Kamen Rider Zero-One.

If you count yourself as a fan of both groups, you may be interested in an exciting double CD collection soon to be released by Nippon Columbia Co., Ltd., bringing together 20 of the greatest opening theme hits of Kamen Rider and Super Sentai series. Understandably, each CD starts off with theme songs from the most recent series, but there are plenty of classics to please fans of the older series as well.

Let's take a look at what you'll find:
