No lie, check out this press release:
More info here: http://herotaku.com/blog/1/1845-kamen-rider-gaim-press-conference-megapost/Rider Gaim's motifs are that of fruit and armour. Seeds from a different world are used to summon armour. Apparently these Riders are desired by the states of the world, it's the beginning of a Rider Warring State Era.
Gaim uses fruit-themed padlocks called Lock Seeds to perform an "Arms Change" and transform. One of the new things with Gaim is that Gaim will have a number of Rival Riders who also use Lock Seeds to summon different fruity armour.
The setting is a emerging castle city apparently controlled by a corporate giant. The disenfranchised youths of this city turn to street dance to pass the time. They also use Lock Seeds to summon small monsters, called Inbess, from another world and hold secret fights between these animals. However larger holes to this other world have started opening up and letting monsters through. To fight these Gaim will stand up as a hero for justice!
It sounds admittedly...pretty odd, but I'm excited as it's the first Kamen Rider I'll watch live (more or less) as it airs! It's also nice to see multiple Riders when the last two years have basically been Main Rider + Secondary Rider Friendly Rival.
The dude who did Madoka's doing it, which is funny since everyone (including the guy who did Madoka) consider it to be basically a Magical Girl version of Kamen Rider Ryuki, and some plot points in Gaim resemble Ryuki such as the idea of a Rider War, plus one of the actors from Ryuki has a role in Gaim too. He's also known for his love of killing off characters and such, which seems quite odd for such a colorful looking series. But we shall see!
