Kamen Rider Kiva (仮面ライダーキバ Kamen Raidā Kiba?, translated as Masked Rider Kiva) is the nineteenth entry of the Kamen Rider Series, produced by Toei Company and Ishimori Productions. It premiered on January 27, 2008, following the finale of Kamen Rider Den-O.

It aired as a part of TV Asahi's 2008 Super Hero Time block with Engine Sentai Go-OngerIcon-crosswiki. Advertisements showed a horror film theme to the series, with the motif for Kamen Rider Kiva as a vampire.

The advertising slogan for the series is "Wake up! Break the chains of destiny!!" (覚醒(ウェイクアップ)! 運命(さだめ)の鎖を解き放て!! Weiku appu! Sadame no kusari o tokihanate!!?). The first episode began with a commemoration of the series in honor of the seventieth anniversary of Shotaro Ishinomori's birthday.

PlotEdit

Twenty-two years after the disappearance of his father, Wataru Kurenai lives in an infamous "haunted house" where he is destined as Kamen Rider Kiva to fight life-draining monsters called Fangires, the very race his father fought years ago before his disappearance. Wataru must also deal with Kamen Rider Ixa who is part of an organization seeking to destroy the Fangire menace, as well as the Fangires' own rider, Kamen Rider Saga.

The story is split between the actions of Wataru in the present (2008–09) and his father Otoya in the past (1986–87), slowly revealing the link between the Fangire Race and Kiva. The characters of Kamen Rider Kiva are spread throughout two time periods, each related to one another. There are the actions of Otoya Kurenai and the Fangire Hunter Yuri Aso with the Wolfen Jiro in the year 1986 with the first Ixa Ver.I that result in the various Fangires that persist to the current day, in 2008, with Otoya's son Wataru (as Kamen Rider Kiva) along and Keisuke Nago (as Kamen Rider Ixa Ver.X) and Yuri's daughter Megumi (also a Fangire Hunter), dealing with the Fangires to prevent deaths.

"Den-Liner, Into Space!"Edit

"Kamen Rider Kiva & Den-O: Den-Liner, Into Space!" (仮面ライダーキバ&電王 デンライナー、宇宙へ! Kamen Raidā Kiba ando Den'ō Denrainā, Uchū e!?) is a planetarium show using the cast of Kiva and Den-O to teach children about the universe. It was being shown at the Kagoshima Municipal Science Hall's planetarium between January 2 and March 30, 2009.

King of VampireEdit

For Kiva's S.I.C. Hero Saga side story Kamen Rider Kiva: King of Vampire (仮面ライダーキバ -KING OF VAMPIRE- Kamen Raidā Kiba -Kingu ovu Vanpaia-?), the story follows the life of the characters following the finale while expanding on other instances in the history of the 1986 storyline. The story is set to begin running in the January 2010 issue of Monthly Hobby Japan magazine. Like the series' episode titles, the titles of the first three chapters of the S.I.C. Hero Saga follow a similar format, but features two musically themed titles separated by an item from musical notation (the former is an opera while the latter is a song from said opera, the third names the composer and one of his songs). The first chapter uses the Segno. The last chapter is a retelling of the final scene of the TV series, except instead of Masao and the Neo-Fangires, Kiva-la comes to warn them about the Lion Fangire having turned into a giant Sabbat.

Chapter titles
  1. A Midsummer Night's Dream: Wedding March (夏の夜の夢・結婚行進曲 Natsu no Yoru no Yume: Kekkon Kōshinkyoku?)
  2. Lohengrin: Bridal Chorus 2 (ローエングリン・結婚行進曲2 Rōengurin: Kekkon Kōshinkyoku 2?)
