Kamen Rider Gaimu's design mixes fruits with samurais

For countless days, I  have been waiting to see the new Kamen Rider that will take over Wizard's time slot, and my retribution has arrived! Based on the first design, our new Rider will have a samurai-like form that likes to slice and dice fruits! When I mean slicing fruits, Gaimu actually cuts a fruit after he inserts the Lock Seed (the item that Gaimu is holding in the picture below) into his belt known as the Sengoku Driver.

I don't know about you, but I'm finding the motif to be very exciting! Hell, I'm liking the Date Masamune-like design that his helmet has, which makes me wonder if his attacks will be lightning based. While we're on the topic of forms, I'm going to assume that he will have a ninja form later on, since Sideshow predicted ninjas when we had a random conversation about Kamen Rider during the beginning of 2013. That, and it could blend well with the Sengoku Driver's abilities.

Surprisingly enough, the secondary Rider has been shown as well, so there's a big chance that Gaimu will introduce the Rider during the early half of the series. If that happens to be the case, then this could be a sign that Gaimu will bring back some elements from the Heisei shows before Kamen Rider W. And who knows, the secondary Rider's slender design could lead to us finally getting a female Rider as the first supporting Rider to appear in Gaimu.

Until we get to see both Riders in action, you can check out the designs and logo in the gallery below. So to those who are fans of Kamen Rider around here, what do you all think of the new designs?
