Indonesian Tokusatsu Revealed: BIMA the Garuda Warrior [Updated]

Starting this June 30th, Indonesia's MNC and Japan's Ishimori Production will start airing Indonesia's latest tokusatsu hero, “BIMA Satria Garuda”, or BIMA the Garuda Warrior. And like any Japanese produced tokusatsu, it will also have merchandises courtesy of Bandai.

Led by the enigmatic Rasputin, the evil organization VUDO came from a parallel universe to steal the natural resources of Earth like oxygen, water and sunlight. Ray, a young man from Earth, was chosen to be a hero to protect the Earth from the evil invaders' attack.

BIMA stars Christian Loho as Ray Bramasakti, Stella Cornelia (JKT48) as Rena Iskandar, Rayhan Febrian as Randy Iskandar, Adhitya Alkatiri as Mikhail, and Sutan Simatupang as Rasputin.

Ray Bramasakti is the main protagonist who transforms itself to Bima Satria Garuda by using the Red Power Stone given by the mysterious person named Mikhail. A honest and quiet man, he is working as a technician in the Satria Motor. He was an orphan, but have Randy and Rena as his close friends.

As BIMA, Ray is granted the agility, focus and strength of a Garuda. He also uses a weapon named Helios. When called, Helios will come flying out from the sun. His finishing move is the Garuda Strike.

Randy Iskandar is one of Ray's best friends since high school, and acts as his big brother. Also known as Ray Way, he was an orphan, who inherited wealth from his parents. He lived and raised by his uncle who saved him as a child.

Rena Iskandar is the younger sister of Randy. She is innocent and naive. Even though she always tries to help Bima, but often just ended up getting in his way by getting kidnapped, etc. She admires both Randy and Ray, and she is in love with Ray.

Rasputin is the head of the evil organization VUDO, which comes from a parallel world to take on the earth elements, such as oxygen, water, and sunlight. It uses the power of the Black Power Stone as main power resource. He have a right hand man by the name of Iron Mask, which acts as the captain of their warship. The face behind the mask is not known, however, he has the power of Blue Power Stone.

Monsters include Tiger, Scorpion and Lizard Monsterman. There is also a guy called Azazel who fights BIMA for Rasputin. He has a weapon called Toranus (God of Thunder).

And finally, here's a good look at BIMA Satria Garuda via the recently uploaded trailer from RCTI official YouTube page, and other related videos.

Scheduled for 26 episodes, BIMA Satria Garuda starts airing on June 30th (Sunday) at 8:30 AM, with replays every Saturday at 3:00 PM on RCTI. They also have plans to release the show overseas, such as Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.

UPDATE: Christian Loho will also be the BIMA's suit actor with the choreography handled by Ishimori production. Three choreographers, the cameraman and director all came from Japan, as well as the equipment to be use to create the series.

Additionally, the designer and writer for the story will be Masato Hayase who is known for writing the Sea Jetter Kaito and Cyborg 009 Conclusion mangas; S.I.C. Hero Saga, Kamen Rider Eve, and KIKAIDER00 novels; and, the character designer for Voicelugger, Kamen Rider Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, Kiva, Decade, W, and OOO

  9. Here's a better translation on description about Rena.

    Rena Iskandar is Randy's younger sister. She is innocent and naive. She always tries to help Bima, but often just ended up getting in his way by getting kidnapped, etc. She admires both Randy and Ray, and she is in love with Ray.

    Adaptation =/= Copy.

  16. Okay my friend, please forgive whatever my country people say about power ranger...

    This our origina country heroes from ccoperating with ishinomori team.. but indonesia have a lot of superheroes before, like gundala, panji manusia millenium (panji millenium man), Saras 008 (not 007), and etc.. :D

    dan kalian jangan lupakan mereka woi... mentang mentang kerjasama ama jepang langsung muja muja... nanti gak seru dihina hina... labil...

    sorry for my bad english...

  17. This Original hero but not the first hero..

    Indonesia have superheroes before bima...

    Gundala, Panji manusia millenium, saras 008..

    Kalian muja muja diawal, pas jelek dihina hina.. tokubil.. -_-

  18. Anonymous Says:


    Saban isn't "copying" anything since he has permission (and guidelines to follow) from Toei to make Power Rangers. Do you not see Toei's name in the credits? I swear this bitching about Power Rangers is just an excuse to hate on anything American made.

  19. Here we go. Indonesian Live action super hero. i hope it is the great seeds for another local heroes to stand up in their own country

  20. Kaimax Says:

    @muto, USA and SABAN didn't copy them, they officially get the license to use those characters and use them in their own original story.

    Stop acting like a child and get your facts right.

  21. 牙狼 Says:

    I find it funny when people keep saying that the USA is "copying" Super Sentai/Kamen Rider/Metal Heroes when Toei and etc...are the ones who signed off on the rights for the adaptation and footage in the first place. Granted the majority of the American adaptations do suck, but money speaks in all languages.

    No, it will not be another Zaido. You wanna know why? Because they even got Ishinomori production to collaborate on the project. Zaido is crap because it's probably made by people just trying to cash in with no love for the genre.

    Looked cool from the post image, then I saw it and was like
    "Heeeeey, This looks like a rip-off fusion of Kamen Rider Ryuki and Kamen Rider Kuuga"...I like the helmet design I guess...And why do the enemies look like the Machine Empire from Power Rangers Zeo/Chōriki Sentai Ohranger... Huh...Probably not gonna watch it.

  35. yeah there are saras 008, panji manusia millennium, the-one-that-manohara-wear-marvel-herones-costumes from major brand and there are rider ammar, LEC, Pocong man, Borneo Man, Gatotkaca, Sphere and much more from the indie brand.

    so we're welcoming Satria Garuda Bima. Maju terus tokusatsu Indonesia

  36. swordgai Says:

    For those who keep saying that this is a rip off of Kamen Rider, this series is made in colaboration Ishimori production, you know the production house that also has a large part in making Kamen Rider.
    So no, dumbassess, it's not a rip off but obviously, it has some inspiration from it. As always, there's always jackasses who already claim they will not wacth it or whatever, go ahead, no loss for us Indonesia. I'm from Indonesia and I'm hoping this series will be good.
    BTW, this is an Indonesia series. The language is Bahasa Indonesia not Tagalog, not Chinese, not Philippines

  37. hey guys eventhough u said saban is copying sentai but be honest guys you love it since u were kid... especially us indonesian fellows,, but still i proud of this , and 1 more thing, indeed this is not the first indonesian superhero. but this is THE FIRST indonesian real tokusatsu, OFFICIALLY, the one from JTOKU is just shown at youtube instead of TV , so i think this is THE FIRST indonesian OFFicial tokusatsu ever, cant wait to see that,

  38. Mr. Maverick Says:

    Nice costume.
    I know, maybe it's a bit kamen rider-ish but what make this serial good or bad is the cinematic effect & the story.
    Can't wait to watch the pilot episode.

  39. Anonymous Says:

    Here's another Indonesian perspective from a different point of view: It's gonna be total shit, because MNC and RCTI is not known for their HQ TV program. The show not even shot on widescreen format .(it's 2013 guys, come on!)

  40. lizzy-chan Says:

    Nice one Indonesia!

    I'll hope it will be a great show to watch for... >_<

    As I watch the trailer, it looks so interesting to watch for.

    Since Ishinomori Productions has involved in the creation, will it have something like 'Crossover-Movie' with Kamen rider?

  43. Anonymous Says:

    Indonesian Tokusatsu my arse! They hired 3 Japaneses, choreographer for the fight scenes, INSTEAD of local choreographer like IKO UWAIS or MAD DOG! the guys from The Raid who are expert in Silat, (Indonesian Martial Arts). The crews and the director are Japaneses aswell

    this show would be nothing more than regular kids show

    Now we have tokusatsu, i guess i'll be looking forward for Indonesia's First Anime

    Bagus Neh.Karakternya bawa2 GARUDA. Mudah2an ada karakter hero laen yang ikonik || Mudah2an ntar Gatotkaca bisa di-film-kan juga jadi beginian.

  46. swordgai Says:

    @Anon 7:34 PM
    How can they hire Iko and Yayan when they're busy doing Berandal?
    I don't know if you're Indonesian or not but stop being an asshole cynic okay? We don't have much experience creating this kinda of series, it's actually a logical step hiring those who are experts and have more experience in it and we can also learn from them.

    Now we may have to collaborate with Japan, but maybe if it's successful it will lead to more productions with local talents. Have you think about that?

    Also, the designer and writer for the story will be Masato Hayase, famous for writing the manga Sea Jetter Kaito, manga Cyborg 009 Conclusion, S.I.C. Hero Saga novel, Kamen Rider Eve novel and designing characters for manga Sea Jetter Kaito, manga Cyborg 009 Conclusion, novel S.I.C. Hero Saga, novel Kamen Rider Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Hibiki, Kabuto, Den-O, Kiva, Decade, W, and OOO

    Maju terus perfilman Indonesia!

    the stunt crew of this series is form piranha team, which is the same team that do the fighting choreograpy in the raid movie. based on the fact that the raid movie has a awesome fighting choreograpy, so i think bima looks promising

  54. Anonymous Says:

    Sometimes I feel ashame when bunch of "Indonesian" say pridefully, "I am Indonesian!" etc then compared it to another "Copied" USA Power Rangers & Power Riders although I'm Indonesian too. well, back to topic, honestly it lacks Indonesia Identity. I wish the battle suit has more indonesianish motive such as batik motive or larger garuda design or maybe more white & red colour since it wants to reflect Indonesia. and Original Indonesia tokusatsu? I don't think so because it still contain Japan's staff. it would wise to say, "Japan-Indo original Tokusatsu".

    I'm happy with this Bima, n very curious to see the first eps :)
    Lol, don't judge this this series too serious, just enjoy it.

    As some info :
    The history behind the production of this Bima (as the Senior Vice President of the local tv said in the presentation video), is to repeat the old succes of super hero series "Ksatria Baja Hitam" (adapted or translated name for Kamen Rider Black) at the same local TV in 90's. Where becoming a very favorite super hero show for 90's kids (the show gain 80% of national watch at the hour the show aired).
    Maybe, this is why Bima have a little taste like 90's kamen rider show (if anyone notice the 90's kamen rider atmosphere too..)

    So.. i think the local tv already calculate the risk of Bima series carefully (I hope so :p), at least it can be accepted by Indonesian audience, and hope we can enjoy it too :)

    *sry for long comment and maybe my bad english, lol
