Blabbering of a Fool
仮面ライダーキバ (Kamen Rider Kiva)
Ryoutarou and the DenLiner crew have set Time back onto the correct track. Now it’s time for a new hero to wake up!
仮面ライダーキバ (Kamen Rider Kiva)!
At this point of time, much information has been released on this new Kamen Rider series, debuting this Sunday. I had made a post on this before, and now I shall try to pool as much official information as possible in this edited post.
Seto Kouji（瀬戸 康史）as:
Kurenai Wataru（紅 渡）
A shy young man who loves the violin, even continuing his father’s legacy of being a violin crafter, in hopes of crafting the ultimate violin that can surpass his father’s.
Is destined from birth with the ability to henshin (transform) into Kamen Rider Kiva, due to his unusual status of being the child of a human father, and a Fangaia (the monsters in this series) mother.
Takeda Kouhei（武田 航平）as:
Kurenai Otoya（紅 音也）
A genius violin crafter, and also a musician. Kurenai Wataru’s father.
In his ambition to surpass the Stradivarius (stringed instruments crafted by the renowned Antonio Stradivari), after countless research, he crafted the violin ‘Bloody Rose’. Now inherited by his son Wataru, the violin reacts to the appearances of Fangaias, for reasons unknown.
An optimistic man who has deep love for music, and women.
Katou Keisuke（加藤 慶祐）as:
Nago Keisuke（名護 啓介）
Not much information has been released on this character, except that he is rumored to be able to henshin into Kamen Rider Hunter（仮面ライダーハンター）.
Yanagisawa Nana（柳沢 なな）as:

An elite Fangaia Hunter, and daughter of Asou Yuri.
Modeling is her usual occupation. Due to having lost people dear in her family and friends to the Fangaias, she hates them with all her heart.
Good with her words, and though bearing a violent temperament when they first meet, she soon becomes involved in Wataru and his battles against the Fangaias.
