These Kamen Rider Kitties Are Purrrrrrfect [Art]
It’s not like you need an excuse to spend a productivity-gutting amount of time every day looking at cats on the internet, but Pixiv user Chiro子 has a particularly good one should the need arise. A self-proclaimed fan of Kamen Rider, Chiro has illustrated eleven kitties as famous heroes from the long-running tokusatsu series.
Rather than rocking belts around their waists like their human counterparts, these Kitty Riders harness the power of turbine tech (or whatever happens to be going on in a given show) around their tails. The cat rocking the currently-running Kamen Rider Wizard costume even has a few of the series’ signature rings on its rump.
Since this batch of costumes is from the past decade or so, it lacks the looks of most of my favorite Riders from series creator Shotaro Ishinomori circa the 1970s and early ’80s, but I’m still pretty partial to the Fourze cat. The Ginga kitty’s fruit-based suit has also (orange) sliced its way into my heart.
