A TV spot for the Kamen Rider Gaim live-action series began airing on Japanese televisions this weekend. The ad hints that the full transformation sequence for the characters will be revealed when the show premieres on October 6.
Kamen Rider Gaim takes place in a certain booming city that a large corporation controls like a "castle town" from feudal days. Bored kids in this town begin to express themselves by participating in street dance. Among these kids, there are some who use Lock Seeds in order to summon monsters called “Imbess” to fight as a game. The Imbess come from another world through a door that opens when the game begins, but due to more doors being opened in various places, the world is put in great peril. In this world, series hero Kōta Kazuraba and other rival Kamen Riders fight the Imbess with fruit-themed weapons.
Ryuta Tasaki and Takayuki Shibasaki will be directing the show from scripts by Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero). Kamen Rider Gaim will premiere on Japanese television on October 6 at 8:00 a.m., and will air every Sunday.
