Kamen Rider Gaim (仮面ライダー鎧武ガイム,Kamen Raidā Gaimu) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series, it is the fifteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-fourth series overall. Toei registered the copyright and trademark of the series, which started on October 6, 2013, joining Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger in the Super Hero Time line-up three weeks after the finale of Kamen Rider Wizard. After Kyoryuger concluded on February 9, 2014, Kamen Rider Gaim was joined in the Super Hero Time lineup with Ressha Sentai ToQger. After the finale of Kamen Rider Gaim, ToQger was joined by Kamen Rider Drive in the Super Hero Time block.

The catchphrases for the series are "It's a Rider Warring (Sengoku) era." (ライダー戦国時代。,Raidā Sengoku Jidai) and "How would you use your power?" (キミはこの力どう使う?,Kimi wa kono chikara dō tsukau).

The average ratings of the series was 5.2%.[1]

Production

Gaim is the first series since Kabuto to have multiple Riders from the start, as recent series as kept to at most, two active Riders on screen. To differentiate from the previous series Wizard, several different design motifs such as fruits and heavy armor inspired by both Western and Chinese cultures were added. The orange was chosen to be Gaim's default form due to the fruit's popularity with children, and its color to differentiate from Wizard's red.

Series writer Gen Urobuchi was asked to revisit the darker elements of past series, and introduced the idea of Beat Riders as a scapegoat to distract viewers from the themes shown in the show's latter half. Furthermore, the Forbidden Fruit drew inspiration from the fruit as written in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible. Urobuchi was also fascinated with the idea of Cross of Fire and ensured that both Kouta and Kaito would be the final contenders but still suffer from the consequences of eating the fruit regardless of the winner, while drawing elements from the Kamen Rider Black manga series.

Story

Because of the large company, Yggdrasill Corporation setting up shop in the once bustling city of Zawame (沢芽市,Zawame-shi); the community started to become more like a jōkamachi (城下町,castle town). To escape the feeling of being under castle authority, dance crews were formed by young people to bring joy back to the public. Along with this is a popular game that uses the mysterious Lockseeds that contain mysterious monsters called Inves that are said to come from another dimension.

As the game becomes more popular, tears in reality begin to open that bring the Inves from their home dimension to Earth. Kouta Kazuraba, a young man who recently quit his dance crew Team Gaim (to help his sister Akira Kazuraba), finds a special Lockseed and the Sengoku Driver to become an Armored Rider, named Armored Rider Gaim. He must fight the sudden appearance of the Inves, but also against other the armored-Kamen Riders known as Armored Riders, effectively becoming a Sengoku period-like conflict for only one victor to prove themselves that they have the right to possess the power of the Helheim Forest, the proverbial forbidden fruit. But while adamant to obtain the Golden Fruit to save the world, Kouta's goal involves him having a predestined confrontation with Kaito who desires the fruit's power to shatter the status quo of the world.

Notes

  • This is the first Kamen Rider series to fully utilize the "A Rider can use other Riders' powers" idea more freely than Kamen Rider Decade. While Decade has to be acknowledged by the Riders themselves to use their powers, Gaim Riders only need the Lockseed and appropriate Driver, if not already in their possession.
  • This installment celebrates the 15th anniversary of the .
  • This is the first Kamen Rider series since Kamen Rider Kiva whose title is not an English word nor based on an English word.
    • Interestingly, to contrast Kiva's movie which have a net movie, they stopped the net movie trend since then.
  • This is the first series to start a Legend Rider form trend, every series after Gaim would continue this trend (except Drive and Zero-One).
  • This series is the first Heisei entry to not strictly follow the two-episode story arc structure that has been a staple of the Kamen Rider franchise since at least Kuuga.
  • While the Gaim Riders' motif is fruit, it is not the first series to have a Rider with a fruit motif. The first one is Kamen Rider Den-O, with the peach-themed Sword Form.
  • Most of the Riders' transformation segments are similar to the Riders from Den-O, with armor piece(s) separating from/attaching onto a base suit to transform and change forms.
    • Coincidentally, the voice for one of the Drivers and the Narrator are former Imaginvoice actors from Den-O.
  • With a total of 20 Riders plus the Kurokage Troopers, Gaim not only has more Riders than any Neo-Heisei series, but has beat Ryuki (which had a total of 13 Riders, along with the 2 Alternatives), Kabuto (which had 11 Riders, not counting ZECTroopers), and Hibiki (which had 19 Riders, more if you count the novel and S.I.C. saga), which makes Gaim the series with the most Riders seen on screen, with 21 Riders.
    • Interestingly before episode 32, this series is more focused on Kamen Riders battling each other than Kamen Rider Ryuki.
      • After episode 32, the series' story becomes something similar to Kamen Rider Hibiki and Ryuki's USA adaption Kamen Rider Dragon Knight, where most of the Riders are gathered in the form of an alliance, with one or more other Riders acting as or aligned with a villain.
  • Excluding stage show exclusive and A.R. World Riders and counting based on on-screen appearance, Gaim held the record for the most Riders to appear at 24, one more than Hibiki and 9 more than Ryuki.
  • Gaim is the last season until Zi-O to only debut a single form (Orange Arms) for the main Rider in the first episode, all following premieres featuring at least one form change in addition to the main form (Drive had Type Speed and the Flare, Spike, and Shadow Tire Changes, Ghost had Ore and Musashi Damashii, Ex-Aid had Levels 1 and 2, and Build had RabbitTank and HarinezumiTank).
  • In addition to Gen Urobuchi serving as head writer, several of his coworkers from the company nitro+ were involved in the production of the season. Although Gaim-related material does not officially bear the company’s name, nitro+ has acknowledged it as one of their coproductions[10] in events such as convention panels[11].
