Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight isn’t particularly my favorite adaptation of a Japanese intellectual property, but I’ll admit, the US producers were trying their hardest to make this adaptation entertaining. However it would appear that CW4Kids doesn’t exactly agree. On December 26th, just two episodes short of the series finale, Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight is being Read the Rest…
