Kamen Rider Gaim (仮面ライダー鎧武[ガイム] Kamen Raidā Gaimu, Masked Rider Gaim) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series, it is the fifteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-fourth series overall. Toei registered the copyright and trademark of the series, which started on October 6, 2013, joining Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger in the Super Hero Time line-up three weeks after the finale of Kamen Rider Wizard. After Kyoryuger concluded on February 9, 2014, Kamen Rider Gaim was joined in the Super Hero Time lineup with Ressha Sentai ToQger. After the finale of Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Drive joined ToQger on the Super Hero Time block.

Why It Rocks

  1. It was a major improvement over Kamen Rider Wizard.
  2. It teamed up with Kamen Rider Wizard (for those who liked the show) and Kamen Rider Drive.
  3. The characters are very likable in their own ways, such as Kouta Kazuraba/Kamen Rider Gaim, Kaito Kumon/Kamen Rider Baron, Mitsuzane Kureshima/Kamen Rider Ryugen, Mai Takatsukasa, Zack/Kamen Rider Knuckle, and Takatora Kureshima/Kamen Rider Zangetsu.
  4. The theme song Just Live More was very hype and fitting for the show.
  5. Decent acting.
  6. The Beat Rider's (The shows version of a Kamen Rider) dancing is really awesome, and could get you really pumping if you vibe in to it.
  7. The tonal shift within Gaim, mainly it being more serious as the series progresses, is really interesting and sets it apart from a few rider seasons.
  8. The concept of having various riders utilize fruit based trinkets, is a unique idea and is executed quite well.
  9. It had funny moments without forcing it into the plot.
  10. Kouta's final battle with Kaito was really emotional and badass.
  11. It had great movies such as Kamen Rider Gaim Gaiden: Kamen Rider Duke, Kamen Rider Gaim Gaiden: Kamen Rider Knuckle.
  12. Many of the suit designs were very pleasing to the eye.
  13. The designs of the Inves and Overlords also look badass.
  14. It had a decent finale.

Bad Qualities

  1. The first half, mainly episode 1-11, was kind of slow.
  2. It aired alongside Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger and Ressha Sentai ToQger.
  3. It also teamed up with ToQger just to add fuel to the fire.
  4. There are some bad episodes such as the 28th and 43rd episodes.
