Kamen rider Hunter is a story by James Kensel/ Hunterkr. It is widely based off of Kamen rider Ryuki, such as the excessive use of cards and beasts that assist their final move.
In ancient times, lone warriors protected Japan from the evil yokai horde. Since they were unknown, they were called 'kamen riders' as in 'masked rider'. But their most powerful comrade, Death watch, and some convinced comrades, joined the yokai horde. The others were forced to seal all of them, but their powers were sealed too. The 89 earth quake of Japan released Deathwatch's power, which sought a host for it's power. Now, Victor Damon, the new host, releases the yokai horde, so that he can make riders to destroy them. When the monsters are destroyed, all the damage they took is converted into energy and sent to Deathwatch. Now, two new riders, Hunter and Cock Lear, attempt to solve the mystery of the riders, and at the same time save the city from Deathwatch!
