Kamen Rider Den-O 仮面ライダー電王 Screen Caps

Episode 1 Ore, Sanjō!
A train is hurtling along through what looks like an Arizona desert, Suddenly the track starts laying itself, onto a side track away from a bridge, the train takes the sidetrack as it continues to lay itself out over a precipice. The train descends into a glowing ball of light. The scene changes to Tokyo a hole of light appears in the sky, golden balls float down and seem to distract Ryotaro Nogami who’s ridding his bicycle and he accidently winds up in a tree top, after a workman helps him down, he begins riding again, runs over a broken bottle crashing next to a gang loitering in the street. They beat him up and steal his wallet. That’s when his bad luck begins because he then finds a pass that makes him a passenger on the train DenLiner, a train that passes through time. Later he’s possessed by an Imagin and transformed into Den-O Sword Form to fight another Imagin who wants to steal a persons past to wreak havoc in time, thereby affecting the present and future.
Along with the unlucky and mild mannered Ryotaro is Hana another passenger on the train who helps him to stop Imagin from altering the past and destroying the time flow. Also on the train is the perky maid Naomi who serves the coffee with a smile and the mysterious Owner who can revoke a train’s pass leaving a rider stranded in time. Ryotaro lives with his sister Airi who runs a café called the Milk Dipper where all the male customers are in love with her.
So far I’ve seen the first 30 episodes and love the show. It’s got plenty of humour, a nice time twisting storyline and new guest characters who appear for a couple of episodes along with a mysterious subplot involving Ari. The action scenes are good; the only weak point is when the train is used as a weapon the effects sometimes aren’t up to the quality of the rest of the show but at other times it looks cool. I would highly recommend this to fans of Kamen Rider shows like Kabuto or Kiva.
Download the entire series of 49 episodes with English hardsubs from the TV-Nihon bit torrent tracker here.

I think because he's so used to it happening to him. Ari's the same way she always seems to expect he'll meet with misfortune but he'll eventually get home. He's a great hero!
