More Kamen Rider Kiva Info

Kamen Rider Kiva

Igadevil has compiled some pretty good information on the new Rider series, Kamen Rider Kiva. Our young hero is Kurenai Wataru who makes violins by day and fights Fangires by night. He also happens to be half Fangire via his mother. If that reminds you a little of Faiz, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise. The director of Faiz is also directing this incarnation so you can expect heavy doses of henshemo (henshin + emo). Kiva’s henshin device is a cute little bat thing called Kiva-Bat the 3rd. Kiva-Bat docks upside down with the Kiva belt and henshin happens. There’s also something about flutes and some sort of dragon castle with helper monsters which honestly kind of worries me, but I’m keeping my hopes up. I like the Kiva’s design, love the bike. I think Kiva-Bat is a little too cute for my taste, but I’m still going to give it a try.
