KAMEN RIDER KUUGA | Synopsis
KAMEN RIDER KUUGA premiered in Japan in 2000 and was the first installment in the franchise’s televised run in the Heisei Era.
When a group of archaeologists uncovers the tomb of a legendary warrior, they unearth Kuuga’s belt, accidentally releasing an ancient race of monsters called the Grongi, bent on destroying humanity. Enter Yusuke Godai, a modern-day guy-next-door, who learns he is telepathically linked to the mysterious stone belt. With its power, he transforms into the legendary warrior known as Kuuga, humanity’s only defense against the murderous Grongi monsters.
