Mutsuki Kamijo (上城 睦月 Kamijō Mutsuki) is Kamen Rider Leangle (仮面ライダーレンゲル Kamen Raidā Rengeru, Masked Rider Leangle), the fourth and final Rider to appear in the Kamen Rider Blade TV series, the strongest rider in Ace Form.

Biography

He is a troubled teenage highschool boy who was selected to become Leangle by the evil will of the Spider Undead (Category Ace of Clubs). There was an instance, however, when Go Kiryu, the initial candidate to become Kamen Rider Garren, took it from him and, with the will of the Spider Undead's parasite spiders, used the system to assault Kamen Riders Blade and Chalice. Although initially afraid of the dark when fighting the Mole Undead, Mutsuki overcame his fear when he saw the smiles on the peoples' faces he rescued.

Unlike Kamen Riders Blade and Garren, the first BOARD-created Riders, he gets no Jack form mainly because of a lack of a Rouze Absorber but unseals other Undead to aid him, especially in the battle against the Keroberos Undead. This ability was removed from him when Joker was the only remaining Undead.

Mutsuki's high-class Undead seem to be the kindest of all the high-class Royals. His Category King is a pacifist, his Category Queen has a strong sense of honor and loyalty (and even has developed feelings for him), and his Category Jack is really laid back, and sometimes lazy, only fighting to defend himself. All of them tend not to fight unless it was necessary. And with the help of his Category King and Queen, only then he is able to suppress the power of the Spider Undead and properly seal him. Mutsuki's girlfriend Nozomi provided a significant amount of help as well; though she couldn't assist with fully suppressing the Spider Undead's power, her love for Mutsuki enabled him to at least partially resist the mind control over the course of the series.

Mutsuki was able to figure out that Kamen Rider Chalice is really the 53rd Undead: Joker Undead and that he will become the strongest enemy when the rest of the Undead are sealed. In episode 31, he says to Garren that he will defeat him before that happens. Mutsuki at one time had all of Kamen Rider Chalice's sealed cards because of the Category King Caucacus Undead (in episode 35, he uses Chalices Spinning Dance to defeat the Jellyfish Undead). He tells Mutsuki that he should stop caring for his girlfriend if he really wanted to become stronger. He continued being controlled by the darkness of the Category Ace until episode 42 when he sealed the Tiger Undead who now encourages him to fight only for the sake of others.

Eventually, when Kenzaki is not able to defeat Joker/Hajime, Mutsuki decided that it was he who would seal the Joker. He battled Joker with all his might and despite that, he lost the battle. He was last seen with his girlfriend playing some basketball.

Blade vs Blade

The special starts with Kotaro writing his book chronicling the tales of the Kamen Rider. Kenzaki walks in and then leaves and just as soon, another Kenzaki enters, which is revealed to be a Trial E disguised as Kenzaki. Something is different about this Kenzaki though, he clones the Blade belt and card just as Kotarou notices that this isn't the real Kenzaki. This leads to a battle where the two fellow human riders must decide which rider is the clone and which is the real Blade. This is followed in by humorous moments in which Tachibana mistakes one of Kenzaki's traits to be that of the clone, then mistakenly shooting him in the rear with the Garren Rouzer, as well as Mutsuki Kamijo comically hitting Kenzaki over the head with the Leangle Rouzer. In the end, Hajime arrives and uses some smart thinking to find out who the real Kenzaki. This allowed Mutsuki and Tachibana to give Kenzaki their trump cards to defeat his opponent as both Jack Form and King Form.

Mach Vs. Leangle & Chalice

When the history is changed, Mutsuki becomes one of the brainwashed Riders leading Shocker members.

But later, Mutsuki, alongside Sakuya, Hajime, and Kenzaki, aided the riders against Shocker after they despise how Shocker act and also had themselves free from brainwashing after Takeshi Hongo alongside Hayato Ichimonji broke free from Shocker Tower.

Unfortunately, Leangle was among the Riders whose existence was erased by the Rider Robo. This fate, however, was rendered moot when the Rider Robo was finally destroyed by Shurikenjin TridoronIcon-crosswiki, restoring Leangle's place in history.

Personality

Mutsuki was introduced to be an aloof and a coward individual who can only rely to his girlfriend. However, his personality started to grow either in good and bad after his kidnaption and the fated meeting with the Spider Undead. The first time Mutsuki able to become Leangle, he was blinded by its strength and feared to use it after he realized that he injured innocent people. When Sakuya learned about Mutsuki's personality and the only person he could trust to be the Leangle user, Sakuya trained Mutsuki to sharpen his fighting instinct. Mutsuki trained hard and able to take the fight properly despite only learn at focusing and handling on the incoming attack.

Mutsuki initially able to surpass Spider Undead's evil will thanks to Sakuya, but when he saw how the others become better than him, the evil will of the Spider Undead managed to corrupt Mutsuki. Despite being corrupted, Mutsuki still held a little remaining humanity, such as trying his best to not let his girlfriend got hurt.

After being freed from Spider Undead's evil will, Mutsuki showed his true maturity towards everyone and able to accept the friendship with the Undead who didn't want destruction. This even led Mutsuki to control the Undead not by force, but the willing to corporate.

Fighting Style

Mutsuki is a melee mid range fighter. After he had been trained by Sakuya, Mutsuki's main strength is his instinct. Despite Mutsuki's great wit, he never able to surpass the stronger enemy due the lack of will like Kenzaki and Sakuya as he is still doubting his strength. This will is soon matured well after he had been freed from the Spider Undead's control.

Different than any previous Leangle's users, Mutsuki is not controlling Undead by the force of the will, but the reliance and the loyalty to corporate despite only shown to be done at one time. This is the only count for Mutsuki's attempt because when he controlled the Undead before, it was because he was corrupted by the Spider Undead.

Forms

The Leangle system was developed through tricks and manipulation by Isaka, the Peacock Undead, who needed the sealed Spider Undead to complete it. However, as later revealed, the Undead was not sealed properly and thus manipulated his users for his own agenda. For Mutsuki to change into Leangle, he has to insert the sealed ♣A: Change Spider card into his Leangle Buckle and position his buckle in front of his waist. The belt then expands automatically around his waist. Mutsuki makes a motion with his right hand across his face and says "Henshin!", then manually opens a portion of his buckle. The buckle announces "Open Up!" at this point. This would also cause a violet projection with a spider image to come out before him. Unlike Blade and Garren's method of transformation (running into their projections), Mutsuki's projection comes to him and completes his transformation into Leangle.

The same "Open Up" system would be used for the Rider Systems of the movie-only Riders Kamen Rider Glaive, Kamen Rider Lance and Kamen Rider Larc.

The transformation fuses the user with the DNA of the Spider Undead. Leangle's Ace form has higher ability parameters than Blade and Garren, allowing him to compensate for the fact that he cannot assume other forms like them.

While never assumed in the series, Leangle's Jack Form (ジャックフォーム Jakku Fōmu) can be seen in the manga and S.I.C. toyline. Leangle would theoretically assume this form by inserting the Absorb Tiger Rouze Card into the Rouze Absorber and scanning the Fusion Elephant Rouze Card. Unlike other Jack Forms, this form is not as maneuverable and lacks the ability to fly, but it compensates with superior strength and defensive abilities.

Statistics

  • Height: 223 cm.[6]

The Evolution Tarantula (エボルーショントランチュラ Evorushon Toranchura) is the result of the sealed Hikaru Jō and Noboru Shima seizing control of Leangle from the Spider Undead after it attempted to transform into King Form with Garren's Rouze Absorber. In the ensuing battle against the Spider Undead, who was expelled from Mutsuki's body, Mutsuki morphed between his human form and Shima's Undead form. This form, along with Blade's assistance, allowed Mutsuki to defeat the Spider Undead and properly seal it.

Mitsuki Kamijo is played by Takahiro Hojo (北条 隆博 Hōjō Takahiro). As Kamen Rider Leangle, his suit actors were Jiro Okamoto (岡元 次郎 Okamoto Jirō) and Jun Watanabe (渡辺 淳 Watanabe Jun).

Meme

  • The irony surrounding Mutsuki's weak will throughout most of the series despite Leangle being said to be the strongest Rider has been the subject of mockery and parody, particularly within the Japanese fandom. It is mostly defined by a line he says in episode 42 as he battles the Tiger Undead: I am the strongest! (俺は最強だー! Ore wa saikyō da!)

Notes

  • Even before Mutsuki made his proper debut in the series, his character already appeared in the show's opening sequence right from the very first episode. However, it was edited such that his face was partially obscured by his hat, later showing his face in full after he made his debut.
  • As acknowledged in the hero change battle between Kamen Rider Decade and Gokai Red in Super Hero TaisenIcon-crosswiki, the Riders of Kamen Rider Blade share their card motifs with the heroesIcon-crosswiki from Shotaro Ishinomori's second and last Sentai series J.A.K.Q. DengekitaiIcon-crosswiki. Leangle's Clubs motif would make him Blade's equivalent of Clover KingIcon-crosswiki.
  • The name "Leangle" (pronounced "lengel") is the derived from 'leangle" (pronounced "liangle") which is an Aboriginal club/polearm-type weapon, which is related to the Minor Arcana version of the Suit of Clubs: the Suit of Wands.
  • The "Open Up" his belt does upon transformation is similar to that of Kamen Rider Super-1.
  • Mutsuki briefly stole Hajime's Heart deck, granting him access to Chalice's cards and attacks. Mutsuki used the 4, 5 and 6 of Hearts to perform Chalice's Spinning Dance attack, although he is not seen swiping the cards through the Leangle Rouzer and announces the attack himself. This may be due to the fact the Leangle Rouzer toy is unable to read cards from Chalice's Heart deck.
  • He is the only Rider in the main Blade series not to have any upgrade forms, only having his Jack and King forms being used in the SIC Saga. Although he attempted to transform into King Form within the television series using Garren's Rouze Absorber, the attempt failed to produce a new form due to the intervention of the Tarantula Undead.
  • Like a previous "tournament-style Rider series" had the franchise's first bat Rider, Leangle is the first associated with the spider, one of the most notable of all animals associated with Kamen Rider kaijin.
