This week, the tokusatsu fandom was surprised on TOEI's announcement of the 15th Heisei Kamen Rider series, KAMEN RIDER GAIM, which led to mixed reactions from fans and non-fans alike. And now, the Japanese magazines had officially showcased more photos of the titular Kamen Rider.
Kamen Rider Gaim is Kota Kazuraba, the 2nd dancer for "Team Gaim" but eventually stopped playing the game and left to look for a job, and protect his sister, his only relative. He's a nice guy, and "protecting people" is his very reason in fighting.
He accidentally found the Sengoku Driver. By inserting the Orange Lock Seed into the driver, and then cutting the fruit part, lets him transform into Gaim. His catchphrase: “Passing through the audience, On Stage!” His personal bike is called the Sakura Hurricane.
Kamen Rider Gaim's side weapon is the the Musou Saber, which seems can be used as both a gun and a sword. Additionally, the Orange Lock Seed can grant Gaim an additional weapon, the Daidaimaru, a slice of orange-like sword.
The Musou Saber and Daidaimaru can combine to form a more powerful weapon, the Daidaimaru Naginata Mode.
Lastly, the magazine published a silhouette of Kamen Rider Baron and Ryugen which will be revealed in September's issue of the magazine.
To premiere on October 6th, Kamen Rider Gaim will be directed by Ryuta Tasaki (Hikonin Sentai Akibaranger) and and Takayuki Shibasaki, with scripts from Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet). The show was produced by Motoi Sasaki (TV Asahi) and Naomi Takebe (Toei).
