On May 22, the channel will begin uploading two episodes of Kamen Rider OOO, and on May 24th, Toei will begin uploading two episodes of Kamen Rider Kiva. Each week, the channel will load two more episodes of each series.
Originally airing in 2008, Kamen Rider Kiva follows two interwoven story lines: The present day story of the reclusive Wataru Kurenai (Koji Seto) and his father, violinist Otoya Kurenai (Kouhei Takeda) in 1986. Both have to deal with the threat of the monstrous Fangire who steal people’s life force much like a vampire. As Kiva and a half Fangire himself, Wataru must fight the Fangires while at the same time trying to unravel the mystery of his father’s untimely demise in the past.
Kamen Rider OOO, which first aired in the fall of 2010, follows Eiji Hino (Shu Watanabe), a young man with no worries aside from having a clean pair of boxers for tomorrow. After being recruited by the disembodied arm of Ankh (Ryosuke Miura), Eiji becomes OOO to fight against the ancient monsters known as Greeed, who feed off of human desires. Along the way, Eiji and Ankh are assisted by members of the Kougami Foundation, who have found a way to weaponize the Greeed’s powerful medal technology.
