We are just a few weeks away on the premiere is the 15th Heisei Kamen Rider series, Kamen Rider Gaim. Japanese magazines started publishing new information on our new hero. What are Lock Seeds? What is its primary purpose?
Kamen Rider Gaim is Kouta 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.
Kamen Rider Gaim's side weapon is the the Musou Saber, which can be used as both a gun and a sword. While using Orange Arms, Gaim gains an additional weapon, the Daidaimaru. He can combine these two to form a more powerful weapon, the Daidaimaru Naginata Mode.
Kamen Rider Gaim's Rider Kick will be known as "Burai Kick".
Helheim is a mysterious dimension that appeared in the city and also the place where Inbess resides. This is where Lock Seeds came from, Helheim Forest to be exact. Like every other fruit, lock seeds grew on trees, assuming the shape of a flower first. Inbess risks their lives in eating the fruits (the lock seeds) to gain enourmous power and strength.
But if the Inbess fail to use it properly, they will lose their minds and ends up going berserk, becoming a threat to the world. To be featured first in the series are the White Tiger and Deer Inbess. Only people with Sengoku Drivers, the Kamen Riders can stop them!
Kouta accidentally found the Sengoku Driver at Helheim Forest. 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!”
Also by using the Lock Seed, Kouta can summon his trusty motorcycle, the Sakura Hurricane.
Introducing Gaim's rival, Kamen Rider Baron. He is Kaito Kumon, the leader of "Team Baron", Team Gaim's rival. Growing up as a poor guy, he always believed that the weak warriors are exploited. He is now hungry for power.
By using the Banana Lock Seed, Kaito can transform to Kamen Rider Baron. His main weapon is the BanaSpear and uses the Rose Attacker as a mode of transportation.
UPDATE: The third to be introduced is Kamen Rider Ryugen. He is Mitsuzane Kuwashima, a member of Team Gaim and Kota sees him as his younger brother. Though he kept this as a secret, in reality, he is the son of the leader of the Yggdrasil Corporation and attends an elite high school. He wants to live freely won't accept the path established for him.
Using the Grape Lock Seed, he can transform to Kamen Rider Ryugen. His weapon of choice is the Grape Ryuhou, a gun.
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).
