Shin Kamen Rider: Prologue is a Darker direct-to-video incarnation of the Kamen Rider franchise released in 1992.
It is the story of Shin Kazamatsuri, a simple young man who's experimented on by his father, Dr. Kazamatsuri, and his father's partner, Dr. Onizuka. Rather than contributing to a possible cure for diseases, Shin is instead gene-spliced with Grasshopper DNA. This results in him getting the power to become a Grasshopper-monster himself. This secret puts him and his loved ones in danger from the Syndicate funding the experiment, the CIA, and Onizuka, who himself can change into a Grasshopper-monster.

Geneticist Dr. Mochizuki splices grasshopper DNA into his lab assistant, Asou Masaru, who stumbles from the lab and goes comatose in the middle of the woods. Mochizuki's next experiment has even more dire results: He creates the Neo-Organism/Doras (both names apply), a diabolical mutant life form that holds him hostage when he won't complete its development. It tries to kidnap Hiroshi, Mochizuki's son, to force him to do as it demands, but he sends a telepathic call for help to Masaru, who transforms into Kamen Rider ZO to battle Doras.

Sorry to interrupt but the following every series created after Ishinomori's death (Don't worry he died of old age) Kamen Rider Kuuga
The 2000-2001 entry in the Kamen Rider franchise.
A group of archaeologists uncover an ancient tomb of a legendary warrior, and discover a mysterious belt-like artifact known as the Arcle. Unfortunately, they also happen to pop the lid off of the Sealed Evil in a Can at the same time, unleashing a race of monsters known as the Grongi. The tribe-like Grongi compete against each other in a "game" of killing humans, with the strongest Grongi winning the right to challenge their leader for domination of their race.
Enter Yuusuke Godai, your typical everyday nice guy. While in town visiting one of his archaeologist friends, the building they are in is attacked by one of the Grongi. Seeing the Arcle and feeling an overwhelming urge to protect everyone, Yuusuke instinctively dons the belt, which is then absorbed into his body. From that point on, he can summon the Arcle from within himself to transform into the legendary warrior known only as Kuuga.
While Kuuga's power is extremely weak to begin with, Yuusuke learns to use his instincts and burning desire to protect those around him to access new and more powerful forms to battle the Grongi. However, he must also contend with the police who, baffled by the appearance of these "Unidentified Lifeforms", have classed Kuuga as an enemy alongside the Grongi.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad is N Daguva Zeba the Grongi LordKamen Rider Agito
The 2001-2002 entry in the Kamen Rider franchise.
All across the city, mysterious and impossible crimess are taking place, carried out by angelic creatures that are Immune to Bullets and seem to be hunting very specific families.
Following the Kuuga Incident from last year, the Metropolitan Police Department commissioned their best technical geniuses to create an effective countermeasure should their city ever be plagued by monsters again. The result was the Generation 3 (G3) Powered Armor, worn by capable-but-klutzy police officer Makoto Hikawa. In response to these supernatural creatures, codenamed "Unknowns", the G3 Unit is sent out to protect the city. They find an uphill struggle ahead of them not just against the Unknowns but against those within their own police department who would seek to use the G3 System for their own gain.
Ryou Ashihara had a promising career as a swimmer until a near-fatal car accident. He began to swim again once he had healed, only to find that his body had undergone a metamorphosis, one that would drive all of his former friends and confidants away from him. After this, he receives a letter containing a list of passengers from the Akatsuki-Go cruise liner: the same cruise liner that his father boarded shortly before committing suicide. Ryou resolves to uncover the reason why his father committed suicide, driven by his loneliness and the new power he has attained: to transform into the feral creature known as Gills.
Shouichi Tsugami is a man without a past. Months ago, he washed up on a beach with no memory and an empty envelope addressed to himself. Taken in by the Misugi family, he enjoys nothing more than a simple life tending a vegetable patch and looking after the household. However, when an Unknown is about to attack a human, he feels an overwhelming compulsion to go to their defence, summoning a mysterious power he knows nothing about but holds the key to everything: the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Agito.
This show links the stories of all three men together as they attempt to uncover the mysteries surrounding the Unknown and the source of the Agito power, clashing not only with the Unknown but with their own insecurities, pasts, and with each other.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad Is the Overlord of Darkness who is an Evil Precursor who doesn't understand humansKamen Rider Ryuki
The 2002-2003 entry in the Kamen Rider franchise.
Shinji Kido is a young, highly excitable Intrepid Reporter for the online news website ORE Journal. Whilst investigating a series of seemingly random disappearances, he stumbles across a mysterious card deck at the home of one of the victims. After picking it up, he finds that he is able to see hostile monsters living inside of reflective surfaces, and is soon sucked through into the Mirror World: a parallel universe that serves as the home for the monsters and battleground for the Kamen Riders.
He soon meets up with two people involved with this strange otherworld: Yui Kanzaki, a young girl looking for her missing brother, and her partner Ren Akiyama, a longcoat-wearing, Harley-riding stoic Badass who has a card deck of his own and can use it to transform into Kamen Rider Knight. Despite the warnings of Ren and Yui, Shinji decides to make a contract with one of the Mirror Monsters to gain its power and fight as Kamen Rider Ryuki to protect the innocent. However, he has unwittingly entered into something far greater...the Rider War.
Thirteen Advent Card decks have been created for thirteen Kamen Riders, and There Can Be Only One. The mastermind behind the Rider War is Shirou Kanzaki, Yui's missing brother, and he offers to grant a single wish to the last Rider standing. Shinji is determined to stop the in-fighting between the Riders and concentrate on eliminating the threat of the Mirror Monsters, but Ren is equally determined to have his wish granted, and he isn't the only one. Ideals and friendships clash on and off the battlefield as the pressure of the war grows and the Riders are eliminated one by one.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad is Shiro Kanzaki, who has good intentions but has horrifying extremes that he will go to in order to accomplish his goals.Kamen Rider Faiz
The 2003-2004 series of Kamen Rider.
In the future, the Smart Brain megacorporation has achieved almost global dominance of the electronics and vehicle industry. However, their true goal is to Take Over the World by forcing mankind to the next stage in their evolution: the Orphenoch.
A young man named Yuji Kiba is involved in a terrible car accident, falling into a coma for two years and eventually dying. However, moments later he comes Back from the Dead, reviving as the Horse Orphenoch. Awakening to a world where his parents are dead, his career has been given to another man, his possessions have been stolen and sold by greedy relatives and his fiance has married his former best friend, he goes mad with grief and goes on a killing spree. He is stopped by the mysterious Smart Lady, the mascot character of Smart Brain, who gives him a new home and purpose; one that he soon comes to rebel against...
Mari Sonada is an orphan who receives a Smart Brain briefcase and motorbike from her stepfather in Tokyo. On her travels she encounters the Stoic drifter Takumi Inui, and a mixup with their bags causes him to pursue her. Soon afterwards, Mari is attacked by an Orphenoch who is after the contents of the briefcase: the Faiz Gear. Putting on the Faiz Driver, Mari attempts to transform but is rejected by the belt. In desperation she puts it on Takumi, and he successfully transforms into Kamen Rider Faiz...
What unfolds is a saga between two men on different sides of the same war: friends as Takumi and Yuji but fierce rivals as Faiz and the Horse Orphenoch.
Things become more complex with the arrival of Masato Kusaka, a fellow orphan and wielder of the Kaixa Gear, who holds a deep infatuation with Mari and is not shy about disposing of any romantic rivals. The trio of belts is completed with the arrival of the Delta Gear, which can be used by anyone. Opposing them is Smart Brain's strongest four Orphenoch, Lucky Clover, whose objective is to seize all three Gears and awaken the mysterious Orphenoch King.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad Is Smart Brain who are Complete Monsters. Their actions are dedicated to human extinction for no other reason than what could be considered sheer hatred for humanity.Kamen Rider Blade
The 2004-2005 series of Kamen Rider.
Ten thousand years ago, a massive battle royale took place between the immortal Undead monsters, each one representing a species of creature on Earth. The Human Undead was the victor, and as a result the human race was allowed to multiply and populate the Earth as its dominant species. Meanwhile, the losing Undead were sealed into cards to slumber for eternity.
Fast forward to the present day. The Undead have been released from their confinement and have started a new battle royale for dominance over the Earth. To counteract this, the secret organization BOARD has created the Rouse Card System and recruited two individuals- Kazuma Kenzaki and Sakuya Tachibana- to seal the Undead on behalf of the human race by merging with Sealed Category Ace Undeads to become Kamen Riders. Kenzaki merges with the Sealed Category Ace of Spades to become Kamen Rider Blade, while Tachibana uses the Sealed Category Ace of Diamonds to transform into Kamen Rider Garren.
Unfortunately, BOARD is swiftly destroyed by an Undead attack and Kenzaki finds that Tachibana has apparently betrayed the human race. A second opponent is found in Hajime Aikawa, an introverted photographer who hides a deadly secret: he is actually an Undead who can use the Sealed Category Ace of Hearts card to transform into Kamen Rider Chalice without the use of an external Rouzer device. The quartet of Riders is completed with Mutsuki Kamijo, who is chosen by the Sealed Category Ace of Clubs card to become Kamen Rider Leangle, only to have the evil Spider Undead sealed within slowly take over his mind and create a new, deadly enemy.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad is Hiroshi Tennoji who is an evil corporate executive and a Complete Monster. He unleashed the Undead upon the world, attempting to manipulate the battle by creating the Trials and Titan, and creating/merging with Kerberos in order to become the genetic template for a new world. It takes all four Riders to stop him in his transformed state, and some of the more sinister Undead are ultimately less evil than he is.
However Hiroshi Tennoji is usurped by Giraffe Undead, the last member of the Royal Club, who was angry at being used by Tennoji. Kamen Rider Hibiki
The 2005-2006 series of Kamen Rider, actually based on a story by Shotaro Ishinomori titled "Onigeki Hibiki".
A secret war is taking place between the Oni- humans who have trained their bodies to be able to harness supernatural power- and the Makamou, demonic creatures that lurk in the forests of Japan. Into this conflict stumbles Asumu Adachi, a young boy who is unsure what he wishes to do with his life. He encounters one of the leading Oni of the Takeshi organisation- a cool and confident man named Hibiki- and soon they develop a student-teacher relationship.
Later on, additional Oni enter the story: first, a mellow young man named Ibuki and his young student Akira, who is in training to be Ibuki's successor as an Oni. Meanwhile, an excitable new Oni named Todoroki wishes to create his own legacy under the watchful eye of his veteran teacher, Zanki.
The story is told from the perceptive of Asumu and is very much a Coming of Age Story focusing on the relationship between mentor and student, the old and new generation and the choices that we make in life. The Oni are all Musical Assassins, using their "pure sound" to purify the Makamou they fight. The series also averts Hard Work Hardly Works by showing the Oni training hard to maintain their bodies and ability to use the Oni power; in fact, an entire arc- "Summer Of Training"- is devoted entirely to their training efforts.
The Main Villians/Big Bads are The Man Oni and The Woman Oni and all their myriad clones. We don't even meet the actual originals until the finale. And its even possible that they aren't the originals after all...Huh.Kamen Rider Kabuto
The 2006-2007 series of Kamen Rider and the seventh installment in the Heisei Era. Also notable for being the 35th anniversary series of the Kamen Rider franchise.
In 1999, a meteor fell to Earth and obliterated the Shibuya district of Tokyo. Along with the destruction the meteor brought something far more dangerous: the Worm, an insectoid race of aliens with the ability to perfectly mimic the appearance and memories of a human.
Seven years later, the Worm have infiltrated society and are slowly killing off the human race, replacing them with their own.
Earth's only defence lies in the secret organization ZECT, who are losing ground against the evolved Worm and their Clock Up ability. To counter this, ZECT develops the Masked Rider System and Kabuto Zecter weapons, which new recruit Arata Kagami is eager to try out.
Enter Souji Tendou: genius chef, philosopher, loving brother, martial arts expert and all-round Ace at everything he does (also, kind of a dick). During a Worm attack, Kagami calls out for the Kabuto Zecter but instead it goes to Tendou, who proclaims that he is the Chosen One to defeat the Worms and uses it to transform into Kamen Rider Kabuto.
The Main Villain is Riku Kagami the leader of ZECT and was the one who convinced the Worms to invade earth in the first placeKamen Rider Den-O
The 2007-2008 series of Kamen Rider
Ryotaro Nogami is the unluckiest guy in the universe. But his life changes on the day he stumbles across a mysterious train pass that allows him to board the DenLiner, a Train that travels through time.
Just as he is recovering from the shock of this, he is suddenly possessed by a monster known as an Imagin: shapeless creatures from the future that take on forms based on the ideas within their host's imagination. The Imagin make contracts with their hosts to gain physical bodies, offering to grant them a single wish. Once this is fulfilled, they can then use their host as a gateway back through time, aiming to destroy the past to seize control of the future.
However, it turns out that Ryotaro is a Singularity Point, a person immune to any changes to the timeline and able to resist the possession of his Imagin. He is soon corralled by Hana, a mysterious passenger of the DenLiner, into using his power as a Singularity Point and his Rider Pass to transform and fight the hostile Imagin invaders as Kamen Rider Den-O.
While Den-O's base form (Plat Form) is incredibly weak, Ryotaro can relinquish control of his body to an Imagin who has possessed him and power up. His first Imagin, a Hot Blooded Oni called Momotaros, transforms Den-O into the red Sword Form. Together, They Fight Crime.
The plot thickens when Ryotaro discovers that Yuuto Sakurai, his sister's missing fiance, is hiding in the past for reasons unknown, and somehow linked to the Imagin attacks. Just as Ryotaro goes to confront him, he is stopped by none other than a younger version of Yuuto Sakurai. This version of Yuuto is brash and cocky, bringing with him his own Time Train called ZeroLiner and the ability to transform into Kamen Rider Zeronos.
though it had average television ratings, Den-O proved to be a massive hit in Japan.
This show is unique because it features as stated above TIME TRAVEL.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad is Kai the Singularity Point who is Faux Affably Evil. His manner of speech and actions are normally realitively unvillainous, which serves to make him far more creepy as a result. Note, he keeps this even when letting loose an entire army of Imagin on the city and preparing to open a time rift to erase an entire area and everyone in it from time.Kamen Rider Kiva
Across the years humanity has been menaced by the vampire-esque Fangire. As a organization of hunters tries desperately to hold the line, 2008's main hope rests in Wataru Kurenai, a violinist with some very strange habits. His father has disappeared, leaving behind his magnum opus, the Bloody Rose violin. Whenever the strings of the Bloody Rose vibrate, Wataru is called to do battle using his half-Fangire heritage and his partner bat Kivat to transform into Kamen Rider Kiva.
The story is told in two time periods simultaneously, with events in the past directly affecting the present. In 2008, Wataru struggles with his legacy as Kiva while contending with the Wonderful Blue Sky Organization, humanity's defence against the Fangire. Of particular note are two members: Megumi Aso, a model by day and Fangire hunter by night who wishes to carry on her mother's legacy, and Bounty Hunter Keisuke Nago, the organization's top operative who wields the power of Kamen Rider IXA and a vengeful obsession with defeating Kiva.
Meanwhile in 1986, Wataru's father Otoya Kurenai waltzes through life while the Wonderful Blue Sky Organization struggles to fight off the Fangire threat. He falls for Yuri Aso, the organization's top operative who seeks to avenge her mother's death, and joins her in their fight. He soon comes into conflict with another new operative, a mysterious vagabond named Jiro, who is chosen to be the user of the Wonderful Blue Sky Organisation's newest weapon: the prototype IXA System.
This one has a Horror film theme to it but isn't dark or scary to children.
The Main Villian is The Fangire King who is a Complete Monster. He forcing the last of the Wolfen, the last of the Mermen, and the last of the Franken to become Weapons and developing a full-blown hate-on for Otoya, up to the point of threatening his own son's life if his wife sees Otoya again...the same woman whom he told was not worth destroying because he had no feelings for her. Did I forget to mention The King's actions were so horrible that Kivat II, who is meant to be the King's loyal Trinket, is so HORRIFIED by King's threat to destroy his own son that he reforms to let Otoya become Dark Kiva to defeat King. Kamen Rider Decade
The first 2009 series of Kamen Rider, created as part of the anniversary for the Kamen Rider series. The series is a Crisis Crossover featuring all nine preceding main Riders from the Heisei series.
The story is as follows: each Kamen Rider series thus far has existed in its own parallel world. Unfortunately, these ten worlds have begun to be forcefully merged into one, which will lead to their destruction.
Tsukasa Kadoya is a (very bad) photographer by trade with Amnesia. When his world literally starts to fall apart around him, he receives the power to become Kamen Rider Decade and is told that to stop the collapse of the The Multiverse, he must travel to the other nine worlds and destroy the Kamen Riders that live there, absorbing their powers as his own.
Accompanying him on this journey is Natsumi Hikari, a girl whose family runs the photography studio that Tsukasa stays at, and who has been having a recurring nightmare where she witnesses the Rider War: a vast conflict that sees every Kamen Rider fall to Decade. There's also Yusuke Onodera, the
Alternate Universe Kamen Rider Kuuga who befriends Tsukasa and decides to join him on his journey across the worlds.
As time goes by, it becomes evident that there are more than ten worlds caught up in the dimensional turmoil, and that a dark power lies at its root. Tsukasa also manages to attract some recurring antagonists: Daiki Kaito, an inter-dimensional thief who can transform into Kamen Rider Diend and summon past Kamen Riders to fight for him; and Narutaki, a mysterious man who believes that Decade is the source of The Multiverse's destruction and will do anything it takes to stop him.
Rather than just a straight reuse of the suits, the series promised to use the "parallel universe" aspect of the story to introduce new features to the universes (and excuse the replacement characters brought about by alternate universes).
This series is unique because it involves traveling to parrel dimensions
The Main Villian is Apollo Geist leader of Dai-Shocker and a Complete Monster. He drains the life out of people to extend his own and has been working to converge the various worlds to facilitate Dai-Shocker's invasion of them, eventually becoming powerful enough to wipe entire worlds from existence which he does with sickining glee. Kamen Rider Double W
The second Kamen Rider series of 2009.
Shotaro Hidari is a Private Detective who imagines his life as something straight out of a Hardboiled Detective novel. His partner is a boy called Philip, a mysterious researcher able to psychically connect to a collection of all the world's knowledge.
Together with their landlord and self-proclaimed "chief" Akiko Narumi, they operate the Narumi Detective Agency in the "Windy City", Futo. Their specialty is solving supernatural crimes committed by monsters called Dopants, which are created when an ordinary human is transformed by one of the dangerous Gaia Memories.
To combat this threat, Shotaro and Philip use their own set of purified Gaia Memories and their Double Drivers to fuse into the world's first "two-in-one" Kamen Rider: Kamen Rider Double W.
They also later meet a man known as Sokichi Narumi who acts as a mentor figure to them and is another rider known as "Skull"
As the story unfolds, Shotaro and Philip slowly uncover the secrets behind the latter's forgotten past, contend with a Hot Blooded police officer on a quest of personal vengeance, and track down the source of the Gaia Memories that are being manufactured and sold in the shadows of Futo: the enigmatic "Museum" organization, controlled by the Sonozaki Family.
This series is unique because of a Dective and film Noir theme.
The Main Villians are The Sonozaki Family who are lead by Ryubee Sonozaki/the Terror Dopant who are Complete Monsters (Every Family Member). headed by an apparent a Corrupt Corporate Executive who seeks to "improve" humanity by turning them into scary monsters. They give powers to not-very-nice people and children in what sparks his son-in-law's trying to reform and subsequent demise at the famly's hands. The patriarch's own powers can be described as weaponized Nightmares. While they arguably fall short due to celebrate becoming all-powerful (in addition to having humanity's survival at heart), it's not for lack of trying; anyway, the fact that they gave a few of the people below the Gaia Memories that enabled their rampages without regard to the well-being of others arguably justifies their classification as monsters by association. Kamen Rider OOO
The story opens with the reawakening of the Greeed, who are monsters formed from human desire. Each Greeed possesses a number of Core Medals that form the heart of their bodies, and they seek to complete their immature forms by feeding on desire in the form of Cell Medals, which they collect through lesser monsters called Yummy. There's also a prophecy that whoever obtains every Core Medal shall become the destined "Multi King" of the Greeed.
Enter Eiji Hino: an Unlucky Everyman and vagrant without any kind of drive, ambition or passion. He runs into Ankh, a bird-type Greeed (and Magnificent Chessmaster) whose body has been reduced to a single arm. Having plundered several Core Medals from the other Greeed but without a body to use them, Ankh manipulates Eiji into accepting a forbidden Transformation Trinket and using his Core Medals to transform into Kamen Rider OOO. Eiji just wants to use the power to protect others, but Ankh plans to use the naive boy as his unwitting pawn to destroy rival Yummy, rebuild his body from their Cell Medals, and seize the power of the Multi King for himself. There's also the Kougami Foundation, an omniscient council who is very vague who pledge their resources to help Eiji in his fight against the Greeed.
The major recurring theme in Kamen Rider OOO is about "desire" or "greed". The interesting part is that rather than painting a clear Black-and-White picture about the topic, the story maintains a balance between excess and void - in short, it presents a pragmatic view about desire.
There are Several Main Villains
. Ankh is the Bird Themed Greeed who manipulates Eiji through the series and is arrogant but has some funny moments
. Mezool The Fish Greeed, the Motherly figure of the Greeed and the only woman
. Uva the Bug Greeed, the hot bloded one who uses brute force.
. Gamel The Elephant Greeed, the Harmless Villain and an adult with the mind of a child who really doesn't know the difference between right and wrong, he likes candy.
. Kazari, the Feline Greeed who is BOTH a Magnificent Chessmaster and a Complete Monster. Of the five original Greeed, he has by far the most horrifying way of making Yummy, implanting them in their host and controlling their body like parasites; in some cases, the host is conscious the entire time. In the end, they're consumed by it and trapped inside, fully aware of what's happening. If that weren't bad enough, Kazari's actual actions are much worse. He used Mezool (The Fish Greed), the Motherly figure of the Greeed, and Gamel (The Elephant Greed), Harmless Villain and an adult with the mind of a child who really doesn't know the difference between right and wrong, as lab mice to see what would happen if a Greeed absorbs Core Medals that aren't their own and wasn't the least bit disturbed when this resulted in their mutual demise. In fact, he took advantage of it to assimilate their Cores and get even stronger. After that, he begins raising Ankh's body as his own personal shell to serve and actively helps Dr. Maki try to destroy the world. And he did all this with a sick smile on his face. He's so evil that even his own kind doesn't care about his demise.
It gets worse When Kazari is upsurped by Dr. Maki who is also a complete monster. He does some truly horrible things early on, like helping a criminal who is hosting one of Mezool's Yummy carry out his attacks to see the Yummy grow, not caring who is harmed or even destroyed in the process. When the swarm of Yummy hatches, he responds by locking his workers inside with them to see what would happen. Predictably, they leave no workers spared, which Maki doesn't care about. He then one-ups himself by joining forces with the aforementioned Kazari. Later, it seems like he might find redemption when his dead sister is brought up. However, it turns out what he came to believe were false memories and he actually burned his sister to death in her sleep just because she was getting married and would have abandoned him. After he realizes this, he loses all the humanity he had left and willingly sides with Kazari to attempt to destroy the world. This is where he flies past the Line by absorbing five Purple Core Medals to begin transforming into a Greeed himself. His Yummy so far have been Omnicidal Maniacs and a monster who tears people's dreams apart, leaving them in a coma as a result. What's his reaction to this? He finds it "interesting" and justifies it as For Science! He's just been getting worse and worse since then. Kazari finds out too late that Maki was Eviler than Thou when Maki impales him and rips all his cores out of him, leaving him to die a slow painful (though admittingly well deserved) death. He also gives two of his own Cores to Eiji, to accelerate Eiji's greeedification. Finally, he tosses the remaining Core Medals from the other Greeed into Uva (The Bug Greed) to forcibly set his ultimate plan into motion much to Uva's horror. However, Dr. Maki is destroyed by Kamen Rider OOO and explodes into energy.Kamen Rider Fourze
The 2011-2012 Kamen Rider series.
Amanogawa High School is a school that encourages every one of its students to be themselves, creating a diverse (but chaotic) student body. Arriving into this bedlam is New Transfer Student Gentaro Kisaragi, a cool guy with a Delinquent image who immediately vows to become friends with every single student in the school.
When the school is attacked by mysterious monsters named Zodiarts, Gentaro receives the Fourze Driver and Astro Switches from fellow students Kengo Utahoshi and Yuki Jojima. Using their power, he transforms into Kamen Rider Fourze to protect the students of Amanogawa High. Fourze can equip up to four Astro Switches at once, using them to equip attachments onto his arms and legs that boost his combat potential.
The plot's main driving element is Gentaro's goal in making friends with everyone in the school, even the Zodiarts Switchers. As such, many of the characters learn important life lessons from Gentaro as he tries not only to fight monsters, but also to befriend them and save them from themselves. The Zodiarts themselves show parallels to the darker sides of humanity and with each one that appears, it becomes harder and harder to free them.
This show is unique because it takes place in a high school, also involves astronomy and the space program.
The Main Villian/Mr. Big Bad is The Red-Eyed Man AKA Mitsuaki Gamou he is actually Affably Evil and geuninely nice guy. I also forgot to mention that he is n Anti Villian and is apparently trying to benefit mankindKamen Rider Wizard

The 2013-2014 Kamen Rider series; the fifteenth entry in the franchise's Heisei era and the twenty-fourth series overall.
In the world of Kamen Rider Gaim, the suffocating presence of the Yggdrasil Corporation Mega Corp has led to the city's youth forming competing street-dance crews as a way to bring energy and excitement back into their lives.
Another popular activity is a game that uses Lock Seeds, which contain tiny creatures known as "Invase". As the game becomes more and more popular, strange dimensional tears begin to open around the city to a mysterious forest. When an Invase consumes a fruit from this forest, it grows to human proportions but at the risk of losing all control and going on a rampage.
Kota Kazuraba is an earnest young man who quits his dance crew- Team Gaim- so that he can find a job and support his sister. When he is caught up in the attack of a berserk Invase, Kota stumbles upon a strange transformation belt and unique Lock Seed, which he uses to transform into Kamen Rider Gaim and defend the city.
However, it is not as simple as that. There are many other Kamen Riders in the city with their own motivations and sense of justice, and soon a modern version of the Warring States Era erupts between the masked warriors.
