The first ever official/unofficial thread dedicated to Kamen Rider Gaim and Kamen Rider Drive, and also, this will serve as the thread for the upcoming series, Kamen Rider Ghost.
In this thread, anything related to both of the series (excluding Ghost since it hadn't aired yet) are allowed, be it episode clips, behind-the-scenes, live stage shows, music videos, to intentionally-created memes.
Anything beyond the range of Kamen Riders are strictly forbids (unless KR memes that are related to K-Pop or J-Pop).
So, start our...mission. Shall we?

Tsunenori Aoki (青木 玄徳) as Ryoma Sengoku
In Zawame City , a large company known as the Yggdrasill Corporation transformed the once bustling suburban city into a jōkamachi. To escape the resulting feeling of oppression, many of the youth in Zawame formed dance crews called Beat Riders to bring joy back into peoples' lives. Also rising in popularity is the Inves Game, a simulator that uses strange devices known as Lockseeds to summon monsters known as Inves. Kouta Kazuraba, a member of the dance group Team Gaim, tries to find his place in the world while torn between his loyalty to his teammates and his sister Akira's insistence that he starts acting like an adult and find a proper job.
This is a good, or rather, one of the best Kamen Rider storyline i've ever watched (not that others are bad), but this series put a meaning about friendships and having the ultimate power.
And i think all the actors are really good, and this is the only the show i never skipped an episode, and i am now currently waiting for the second installment of Kamen Rider Gaim Gaiden: Duke & Knuckle, which will aired around November.
KAMEN RIDER DRIVE (仮面ライダードライブ)
First episode aired: 5 October 2014
Last episode aired: 20 September 2015
Ryoma Takeuchi (竹内 涼真) as Shinnosuke Tomari (泊 進ノ介)
Rio Uchida (内田 理央) as Kiriko Shijima (詩島 霧子)
Yuu Inaba (稲葉 友) as Gou Shijima (詩島 剛)
Taiko Katono (上遠野 太洸) as Chase (チェイス)
Chris Peppler as Krim Steinbelt/Mr Belt
Masakazu Morita (森田 成一) as Tenjuro Banno (蛮野 天十郎)
Tomoya Warabino (蕨野 友也) as Heart Roidmude (ハート)
Shota Matsushima (松島 庄汰) as Brain Roidmude (ブレン)
Fumika Baba (馬場 ふみか) as Medic Roidmude (メディック)
Shinnosuke Tomari is a former elite police officer in the Metropolitan Police, who, after an event that traumatized one of his colleagues, has been "demoted" into the Special Investigations Division. This division looks into the stranger happenings in the city, particularly the recent "Heavy Acceleration" events. These events, termed "Heaviness" by the public, leave people unable to move. When he is chosen by the Drive Driver and Tridoron, Shinnosuke transforms into Kamen Rider Drive and is tasked with battling the Roidmudes who plan to rise against humanity and take over the world.
I think this will be another series that can be looked forward to, as the story are intensified, and this will be soon linked up to the upcoming movie, Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future, and also, the future Kamen Rider Ghost.
As for how i feel about the actors, i think Fumika Baba and Chase are the only ones captivated me, because one have an evil agenda while the other has a deep, secret past.
