Kamen Rider 2008: Kamen Rider Kiva

“Wake up! The chains of destiny are released.”

Here’s a clear look at 2008’s Kamen Rider hero, Kamen Rider Kiva! The new show will follow a horror theme this time around, with Kiva’s forms inspired by famous monsters (Dracula, werewolf, Frankenstein’s monster and gillman). He’ll have contract monsters for his different forms, which will reside in a haunted castle.

I must say the concept is pretty unique, though like the current Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider Den-O, whose premise sounded retarded at first (Kamen Rider with trains?!) but ended up pretty awesome, I guess the best approach is to just be ready for anything.

Kamen Rider Kiva will premiere after the conclusion of Kamen Rider Den-O next year.

*update* Recent promotional material have confirmed that the title will be “Kamen Rider Kiva”.

  1. The suit looks really good, it looks like a combo of Kabuto with Dracula. I can’t wait its action figure to come out. Hope the story will be more darker than the current Den-O. Den-O is fun to watch, but it’s way too much comedy though, I prefer the story to be liked Kabuto or Blade.

  2. Woooo… Are you sure Kamen Rider Kiva will be played in this year (2008)…
    I found my brother DvD file the other day and found the title Kamen Rider Kiva (where he got…I totally got no idea) and watched it till episode 5… It’s very confusing… and not very cool henshin as Kabuto and Den-o as well as ryuuki…. >.<“
