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”.
