Kamen Rider Kiva 仮面ライダーキバ Ep.8 Screen Caps

Episode 8 Soul Dragon Castle Awaken
In 1986 another of the café’s clients has gone missing, Shima believes that the culprit, maybe a Fangire, and Jiro points out that he wasn’t the one that was being targeted. Otoya tells Jiro he was useless as bait, and that he’s no longer needed, saying he’ll join the organization. Then in the park, Yuri’s following Jiro who tells her that a woman following a man, is either going to pickpocket him or is in love with him. She tells him that he still may be a target, but he points out that it’s more likely that she’s the target. Then Otoya shows up vowing to protect her. The time shifts to 2008 Wataru is reporting to Nago about the restaurant where he’s been working undercover. When Megumi interrupts, complaining that Nago is using Wataru. After Nago leaves Wataru asks Megumi why she hates Nago so much. She tells him that Nago through his dogmatic sense of justice drove his own father to his death.

I love this show and eagerly await its release, this week we’re extra lucky as TV-Nihon has released three episodes. This is the first Kamen Rider series I’ve watched week to week instead of marathoning an entire series, and while it’s a great way to watch the show it’s agony waiting for the next episode. I love the way the story is woven between the two time frames with the Aso women and the Kurenai men. This is one of the most story oriented tokusatsu I’ve seen so far, while storyline eats into the action sequences the mysterious plot keeps me wanting more.

Download the first ten English hardsub episodes from the TV-Nihon bit torrent tracker here, screen caps of the previous episodes are here.
