Icon-revice.pngThis article is about a rider in Kamen Rider Revice.

Genta Igarashi (五十嵐 元太, Igarashi Genta) is the father of the Igarashi siblings and the husband of Yukimi Igarashi. Born Junpei Shiranami (白波 純平, Shiranami Junpei), he was forced by NOAH to become Kamen Rider Vail (仮面ライダーベイル, Kamen Raidā Beiru) many years ago before escaping into his current normal life. After his inner demon Vail resurfaced in the present day as a result of Giff's resurgence, Genta became Kamen Rider Destream (仮面ライダーデストリーム, Kamen Raidā Desutorīmu) to confront his inner demon for the final time.

History

Background

Junpei being forced to fight for NOAH

In 1997, Junpei Shiranami fell off a cliff during a supposed biking accident and suffered life-threatening injuries. After being taken in by NOAH, Masumi Karizaki performed a heart transplant on Junpei, implanting him with DNA from the demon Giff. This spawned his inner demon, Vail, who later killed Junpei's parents under NOAH's orders to fuel Junpei's hatred and negative emotions, turning him into the powerful demon hunter known as Kamen Rider Vail. However, he had no memory of his past, except for the memories of his parents being killed by a red demon.

Kamen Rider Vail battles in the past

He swore revenge and heard Vail speaking to him for the first time. Junpei devoted himself to fighting NOAH's failed experimental demons, but the battles only left emptiness in his heart. During a battle that left him buried under rubble, Junpei was saved by a young lady named Yukimi Igarashi, who took him to Happy Spa for food and rest. She also renamed him "Genta" due to him unable to recall his name. The two were later captured by NOAH, only to be rescued by Shozo Irabu, an undercover resistance member inside NOAH. After Vail was released, Junpei realized he was the demon who killed his parents and the two battled. Masumi would seal Vail away in the Demons Driver and caused an explosion that destroys NOAH headquarters.

In the aftermath, Junpei lost all memory of his life and had his face altered. Yukimi was at his bedside and claimed to be his wife, with his legal identity changed to "Genta Igarashi". After the two married, the couple spent their lives running Happy Spa and had two sons, Ikki and Daiji. Sometime in 2004, Vail tracked Genta down and took over his body in an attempt to burn down the bathhouse. Eventually, Vail was resealed back into the Demons Driver and Genta returned to his normal family life when his daughter Sakura was born. Unbeknownst to most, his children would inherit the same Giff genes that were implanted into him, granting them the power to become Kamen Riders as adults.

The Deadmans Crisis

When the Igarashi clan attended Daiji's ceremony at Fenix, Genta stayed at the Happy Spa where he saw the Deadmans launching an attack on television. The crisis was averted after Ikki transformed into Kamen Rider Revi. Since Yukimi was hospitalized in the aftermath, Genta assumed responsbility of watching over Happy Spa, but would almost get tricked into signing over eviction papers by the land developers. After receiving financial support from Fenix to keep the bathhouse running, Genta used his channel to help his son find Deadmans as well as promote the spa.

Genta's medical reports revealing he has no heart

After a fully-recovered Yukimi was released from the hospital, the Igarashis went out to vacation trip to a luxury ryokan. Although Genta and his children pampered Yukimi, their happiness was cut short when it was revealed Daiji is possessed by his inner demon Kagero. He displayed unimaginable bravery in protecting his family despite coming face to face with Kamen Rider Evil. When Genta later developed a back injury, Fenix offered to provide medical treatment. Karizaki looked into his X-Ray scan and was suprised to discover that he has no heart.

Return as Kamen Rider Vail

As Giff's coffin grows stronger everytime it absorbs demon essense, Genta is affected by his presence but hides it from his family. Curious about his missing heart, George Karizaki visited the bathhouse to talk with Genta about it, with little response. After Vail resurfaced, Genta would become victim to his demon's possession once more. He became Kamen Rider Vail once more and defeated two Gifftarians. As he shifted his sights onto Ikki, Genta regained control and stopped Vail from harming his children.

Vail seemingly escapes from the belt again, causing Genta to lose his memory of what happened and lose consciousness. He was carried back home by Shozo Irabu, much to the three siblings' confusion. Irabu and Masumi would relay the truth about Genta's past to the Igarashi siblings, how NOAH forced him to become Kamen Rider Vail 30 years ago. While Genta was placed into hiding, he would regain his memories as Junpei. He decided to remain in hiding to protect his family from Vail's hands, promising them that he will return home one day.

Weekend Custody

While hidden safely by Irabu, Genta would be brought into Weekend. Upon arriving, he reunites with Sakura, who had joined the organization. Genta was in no condition to fight however and is forced to hide out from Vail until he's fully recovered. As he has full memory of his past as Junpei, he regretted forcing his children to be involved in an unexpected battle due to his shortcomings. He was also determined to eliminate Vail in a sense of responsibility.

After Akemi Mikoshiba was unexpectedly killed by Hideo Akaishi, it halted the creation of the Giffard Rex Vistamp. However, Genta elected to provide Giff's cells to his body, much to Ikki's skepticism. When Genta underwent the procedure, both Masumi and George struggled due to the extraction nearly killing him in the operating table. Ikki was able to stop the surgery on time. Although his cells were not completely removed, Ikki and Vice were able to access the Giffard Rex Vistamp to become Ultimate Revice. After returning home to Happy Spa, Genta apologizes to his family for acting more seriously than usual, revealing that he was still the bumbling yet loving father they knew.

Final Confrontation with Vail

Genta requests Karizaki to create a new belt.

While resettling himself back at Happy Spa, Genta and Yukimi discovered Ikki had vanished from the family photos. Genta is shocked to learn that Ikki's memories would disappear as a consequence for fighting as a Kamen Rider. While Ikki declared that he will continue to fight no matter what happened, Genta decided to settle things with Vail once and for all. He devised a plan with Masumi, and later met with George to request a new Driver modification to the old Vail Driver.

"I'm not "Junpei". I'm Genta Igarashi."
―Genta to Vail.

Destream versus Crimson Vail.

After the Destream Driver was completed, Genta admitted he did so to show Daiji a different path. On the day of the decisive battle, Genta confronted Crimson Vail as Kamen Rider Destream while his children bore witness. In the climax, Genta re-absorbed Vail back into himself and revealed that to have been his true intention all along. He lightheartedly forgives Vail and proclaims that he was no longer Junpei Shiranami, but Genta Igarashi now. Though Vail teased he'd never forgive "Genta", he willingly admitted defeat and allowed Genta to absorb him.

Personality

Junpei was once a tortured individual driven to insanity from long stretches of seemingly endless fighting as Kamen Rider Vail. It nearly broke him both physically and mentally, but meeting Yukimi blossomed in him a dormant desire for a family. Her kindness and warmth had convinced him to leave this life, which ultimately healed him as a person. As Junpei settled down as "Genta Igarashi", he became a kind and loving father who loves his family and cares deeply for them, having grown strong enough to resist Vail and protect his three children.

Upon his past memory as Junpei Shiranami resurfacing, Genta become more serious and driven by the responsibility to end Vail's vile schemes once and for all, despite his poor physical condition. This was all later revealed to be a facade, though he was still dedicated to ending Akaishi's schemes, allowing Weekend to extract the Giff cells in his body for the Giffard Rex Vistamp.

Ultimately, rather than ending his struggle with his demons by destroying them, Genta chose to forgive Vail instead. Genta's plan to allow himself and his demon to co-exist as one, was a sure sign of the growth he had undergone as a person throughout the time spent with his family.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Hybrid Physiology: After receiving a heart transplant infused with Giff's DNA, Genta can safely transform into a Kamen Rider using the Vistamp system.
  • Inner Demon Control: Genta possesses the ability to keep his inner demon Vail under control, enabling him to use the Vail Driver. However, compared to his children, Genta is prone to become victim to Vail's possession and could only resist him if his willpower to protect his family is strong enough.

Weaknesses

  • Vail: As much as Vail's life is dependent on Genta's, the same also applies vice versa, as Genta will die if Vail is killed.
  • Gene Extraction: Although Giff's genetics gave him the ability to become a Kamen Rider, attempting to remove them from Genta's body will bring him close to the brink of death, as he barely survived when the Karizakis extracted his cells to create the Giffard Rex Vistamp.

Former Weaknesses

  • Memory Loss: Likely due to his connection with Vail and having Giff's DNA, Genta can be prone to memory loss which results him losing previous memories as his previous identity. However, once Vail fully emerges, Genta would slowly but eventually recover his memories.

Kabuto Genome (カブトゲノム, Kabuto Genomu) is Vail's Japanese rhinoceros beetle-based primary form. Genta transforms into Kamen Rider Vail by using the Kabuto Vistamp in the Vail Driver.

All of Vail's statistics are higher than those of Jack Revice with the exception of his jump height, which is lower. Despite the demon Vail being the source of the Vail Driver's power, Genta can still transform without him. However, doing so will result in Kamen Rider Vail being less powerful.

Kamen Rider Vail consists of the following parts:

  • Dynastinae Head (ダイナスティニーヘッド, Dainasutinī Heddo): The head.
    • Vail Fore (ベイルフォアー, Beiru Foā): The forehead armor. It has hardest armor on the whole body and delivers a headbutt like the blow of a beetle's horn.
    • Dynastinae Disturb (ダイナスティニーディスターブ, Dainasutinī Disutābu): The radar unit. Equipped with satellite communication equipment and a radar capable of searching 100 km around for enemies, it can instantly acquire all of the data necessary for strategic operations.
    • Vail Compound Eye (ベイルコンパウンドアイ, Beiru Konpaundo Ai): The compound eyes. By using them as the sight of the armament in hand, they boast unmatched accuracy. In addition, they instantly analyze the enemy's armaments and predicts and display effective range and other information, dramatically improving combat efficiency. They also have very good night vision equipment and can clearly capture the outlines of objects in the dark.
    • Dynastinae Lung (ダイナスティニーラング, Dainasutinī Rangu): The breathing device. Equipped with 128 layers of special filters, it can completely block the inhalation of toxic substances and biological weapons. In addition, the filtration function makes it possible to extract oxygen and fresh water from seawater. Due to these functions, the range of activity is greatly expanded.
  • Dynastinae Module (ダイナスティニーモジュール, Dainasutinī Mojūru): The shoulder special armament. It is armed with the rhinoceros beetle's unique ability from the genetic information of the Kabuto Vistamp. It has the ability to strengthen the armor of the whole body, giving it the power to withstand a direct hit on the scale of a strategic weapon. It can also be operated as a sharp blade by deploying an energy field on the Wingal Shade (ウインガルシェード, Uingaru Shēdo) at the bottom.
  • Dynastinae Breast (ダイナスティニーブレスト, Dainasutinī Buresuto): The chest armor. It has a special mechanism that controls the powerful demon and enables fighting together by directly linking with the heart of the user.
  • Archi Genomic Suit (アーキゲノミックスーツ, Āki Genomikku Sūtsu): The reinforced suit. It has extremely high fire resistance and is pressure-resistant and waterproof to the extent that it enables combat in the deep sea. Furthermore, by supplying energy to the Archi Genomuscle (アーキゲノマッスル, Āki Genomassuru), artificial muscles that wrap around the whole body, the user acquires physical abilities that transcend humans.
  • Dynastinae Arm (ダイナスティニーアーム, Dainasutinī Āmu): The arms. Due to the Archi Genomuscle producing tremendous arm strength, it is possible to deliver rapid-fire blows of up to 50 per second. On the other hand, in exchange for overwhelming destructive power, the user's arm can be damaged to the point of self-destruction.
  • Dynastinae Hand (ダイナスティニーハンド, Dainasutinī Hando): The hands. They are equipped with the function of converting the energy supplied from the Vail Driver into destructive force and generate 72.1 t of punching power.
  • Dynastinae Leg (ダイナスティニーレッグ, Dainasutinī Reggu): The legs. The Archi Genomuscle artificial muscle can support up to 600 times the body weight. However, this is accompanied by serious damage to the user's skeleton.
  • Dynastinae Foot (ダイナスティニーフット, Dainasutinī Futto): The feet. By receiving the operation of the Vail Driver and gathering high-density energy on the sole, it is possible to activate the finishing move Vailing Impact, which converts the Vistamp's genetic information into an attack.

This form has the following finishers:

  • Vail Driver finishers:
    • Vailing Impact (ベイリングインパクト, Beiringu Inpakuto): This finisher has three variations.
      • Vail covers his lower arm in crimson energy and punches the opponent. Simultaneously, an energy construct of a rhinoceros beetle appears from behind Vail and impales the enemy as the punch makes contact. After a brief moment, the enemy explodes.
      • Vail's lower leg is covered in red energy as an energy construct of a rhinoceros beetle flies behind him with its horn glowing red. Vail delivers a roundhouse kick to the opponent, leaving behind crimson energy. Simultaneously, the beetle construct slashes the enemy with its horn, leaving behind a trail of light blue energy. The force of the combined attack damages the surrounding area, and waves of multicolored energy emanate from the opponent's body. A large multicolored shockwave is then released from the opponent before they explode.
      • Vail covers his lower arm in crimson energy before punching the opponent while an energy construct of a rhinoceros beetle appears beside him. Multiple streams of red and black energy are released when the punch strikes the target. After a brief moment, the enemy then explodes.
    • Vailing Nova (ベイリングノヴァ, Beiringu Novā): This finisher has two variations.
      • Vail covers both lower arms in crimson energy and uses them to block the opponent's attack. He then performs a punch surrounded by swirling red energy using each arm, with each punch creating an explosion upon impact. An energy construct of a rhinoceros beetle also appears beside Vail's arm during each punch.
      • Vail's lower leg is covered in crimson energy and surrounded by swirling light red energy as an energy construct of a rhinoceros beetle behind him. He then delivers a side kick to the enemy, producing a large red shockwave upon impact. The beetle construct rams into the enemy soon afterward, resulting in an explosion.

Destream's punching power, kicking power, and running speed are all higher than that of Kamen Rider Revice, Kamen Rider Vail, and Crimson Vail. However, like Kamen Rider Vail, his jump height is comparatively much lower. While it is higher than Kamen Rider Vail's, it is still exceeded by both of Revice's fusion forms as well as Crimson Vail. All of Destream's statistics are still completely outclassed by Ultimate Revi and Ultimate Vice.

On Destream's back are six mechanical appendages named Herclaws (ヘラクロー, Herakurō), which can be extended to attack opponents. Additionally, Genta's past as Kamen Rider Vail gives him years of experience, allowing him to fight evenly against Vail.

In addition, they instantly analyze the enemy's armaments and predicts and display effective range and other information, dramatically improving combat efficiency. They also have very good night vision equipment and can clearly capture the outlines of objects in the dark.
    • Destream Disturb (デストリームディスターブ, Desutorīmu Disutābu): The radar unit. Six are lined up on the left and right and function independently as satellite communication devices, radar, sonar, etc., to instantly acquire all of the data necessary for strategic operations.
    • Destream Crusher (デストリームクラッシャー, Desutorīmu Kurasshā): The breathing device. It has the ability to efficiently increase the concentration of oxygen obtained from breathing in order to compensate for the intense exhaustion of combat.
  • Hercules Breastreamer (ヘラクレスブレストリーマー, Herakuresu Buresutorīmā): The chest armor. It is armed with the characteristic abilities of the Hercules beetle. It has the ability to strengthen the armor of the entire body, and by generating a special energy flow named Destream (デストリーム, Desutorīmu) from the protruding tip, it minimizes any resistance and super accelerates the speed of every part of the body. In addition, the back is equipped with the Herclaw all-purpose manipulators.
  • Herclaw (ヘラクロー, Herakurō): The all-purpose manipulator.
  • Sentinel Genomic Suit (センチネルゲノミックスーツ, Senchineru Genomikku Sūtsu): The reinforced suit. They support combat by moving freely like limbs according to the will of the user with the artificial muscle Genomuscle (ゲノマッスル, Genomassuru). In addition, the finishing move Destream Nova can be activated by receiving the operation of the Destream Driver.
  • Hercules Arm (ヘラクレスアーム, Herakuresu Āmu): The arms. The Hercules beetle's unique ability and artificial muscle Genomuscle allow them to deliver rapid-fire blows of up to 50 per second.
  • Destream Geno Hand (デストリームゲノハンド, Desutorīmu Geno Hando): The hands. They are equipped with the function of converting the energy supplied from the Destream Driver into destructive force, generating mighty punching power.
  • Hercules Leg (ヘラクレスレッグ, Herakuresu Reggu): The legs. The Hercules beetle's unique ability and artificial muscle Genomuscle allow them to support up to 700 times the body weight.
  • Destream Geno Foot (デストリームゲノフット, Desutorīmu Geno Futto): The feet. By receiving the operation of the Destream Driver and gathering high-density energy on the sole, it is possible to activate the finishing move Destream Finish, which converts the Vistamp's genetic information into an attack.

This form has the following finishers:

  • Destream Driver finishers:
    • Destream Finish (デストリームフィニッシュ, Desutorīmu Finisshu): Polygons made from lines of cyan energy emanate from Destream's fist before he delivers a running punch surrounded by additional red and blue energy to the enemy. Afterward, he then turns to face the enemy again before channeling streams of cyan energy into his lower leg, which is then covered by cyan energy itself. Destream performs a side kick, with several cyan energy components appearing before attaching to his leg, forming a Hercules beetle's head. The energy beetle's head spins and is surrounded by a cone of cyan and red energy, acting similar to a drill. Cyan electricity is generated as the energy beetle head strikes the enemy. After a short moment, cyan lightning is produced from the enemy just before they explode.

Relationships

Family

  • Yukimi: Genta's wife whom he met in his youth. While going through countless battles as Kamen Rider Vail had left Genta teetering on the edge of despair, meeting Yukimi helped him regained his sense of humanity as he was touched by her warmth. In turn, he developed a desire to protect her from harm as well. In the present day, Genta tries his best to be a loving husband to Yukimi, while she continuously pampers him to protect him from falling back into the pain he had felt during his past.
  • Ikki/Kamen Rider Revi: Genta's eldest son. Genta's antics always lands the bathhouse in trouble which Ikki has to fix, though Ikki does not mind. While Genta was aware of his children's battles as Kamen Riders, he was determined to face Vail by himself even in his poor condition. Ikki had to reassure his father that he and his siblings could continue to handle the situation at hand.
  • Daiji/Kamen Rider Live: Genta's second son. Genta is proud of Daiji's achievements at Fenix, though after witnessing Daiji's various ordeals after becoming a Rider, and recovering his own memories of his past, he becomes more concerned for Daiji's well-being. Genta deciding to become a Rider again was also partly motivated by this concern, as he knew that Daiji was deeply conflicted within himself and thus wanted to show Daiji a different path.
  • Sakura/Kamen Rider Jeanne: Genta's young daughter, whom he treasures a lot. Sakura always teases him regarding his activities, though she also cares for her father as well.

Allies

  • (Kamen Rider) Vice: Ikki's inner demon whom Genta supports.
  • Shozo Irabu: A former NOAH soldier and friend Genta met when they were young. He helps him (back as Junpei) and Yukimi escape and protects him from Vail. Ever since their escape from NOAH, Bu-san has always remained Genta's close friend, becoming a regular at Happy Spa and continuing to help Genta in times of peril. When Vail returned due to Giff's slow revival, he helps Genta through his memories returning and protecting him on the day he faces Vail again.
  • Masumi Karizaki: A former scientist of NOAH who was responsible for implanting Giff's cells into Genta and turning him into a Kamen Rider. While Masumi initially only treated Genta as just another experimental subject to create a super soldier, he was eventually snapped back to his conscience after some words from Irabu. He later helps Genta and Yukimi escape, and has been continuously watching over the Igarashi family after he founded Weekend, as repentance for his sins. Genta later enters the protection of Weekend, after Vail resurges as a threat resulting in Genta regaining his memories.
  • George Karizaki/Kamen Rider Demons (III): Masumi's son who gets curious about Genta's condition, and eventually learns about the Igarashi family's past. As a Fenix researcher, George assists Genta's children in their battles as Kamen Riders.

Enemies

  • Vail: Genta's former inner demon. Initially tempted by Vail to enact revenge on the ones who had hurt him, Genta would later turn against Vail after meeting Yukimi. Vail would later develop a vendetta towards Genta, swearing to destroy his host's happiness. Genta, after learning about his children's battles against Vail, believes that he has to be the one to face Vail eventually by himself to lift his family's cursed past. In the end, Genta chose to forgive Vail, making peace with his own demon as Vail is absorbed back into himself.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Etymology

  • Like the rest of his family, the Igarashi surname contains the kanji for "fifty" (五十嵐), which is likely a nod to Revice commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Kamen Rider franchise.
  • Vail is defined as "to surrender". [7]
  • Destream (ディストリーム, Disutorīmu) is a portmanteau of the words Destroy (デストロイ, Desutoroi), and Stream (ストリーム, Sutorīmu).

Notes

  • Junpei was labeled as "Experiment No. 071", referencing the year when the original Kamen Rider series started airing, 1971.
  • Kamen Rider Destream is modified from Kamen Rider Century, with the blue lines on the base suit replaced with red, the arm and leg armor repainted, and new armor for the chest and shoulders along with a new helmet. The helmet shares the same base mold as that of Kamen Rider Demons, with the additional spider eyes on the sides still present as the "Destream Disturb" radar units.
  • Genta's transformation pose as both Vail and Destream resembles the movement and posture adopted by those committing Seppuku, as a reflection of his determination.[8]
