"I swear on Suiseiken Nagare that I shall protect this world!"
―Blades' catchphrase[src]

Rintaro Shindo (新堂 倫太郎 Shindō Rintarō) is a member of the Sword of Logos who transforms into Kamen Rider Blades (仮面ライダーブレイズ Kamen Raidā Bureizu), the secondary Rider in Kamen Rider Saber.

History

After witnessing Touma Kamiyama, a “Homo Sapien” becoming Kamen Rider Saber, he tracks him down at his bookstore and asks him to hand over the Driver and Sword, fearing that Touma’s newfound great power would become dangerous. Chapter 1: In The Beginning, There Was a Flame Swordsman.

When Touma ultimately decided to help fight against the Megid, Rintaro took him to the Sword of Logos HQ in the North Pole. Chasing after the Ari Megid, Rintaro transformed first to give Touma a demonstration on a Kamen Rider's default powers and abilities. After they entered Wonder World, Rintaro suggested Touma to use the newly acquired Jackun-to-Domamenoki book. When they defeat both the Ari and Kirigirisu Megid, Touma acquires the Peter Fantasista Ridebook.

Personality

Rintaro places the Sword of Logos organization and rules above all else, and at first glance, he appears to be serious and difficult to approach. He is actually quite down-to-earth and was willing to teach Touma the ins-and-outs of becoming an effective Kamen Rider, though Touma's rather unorthodox methods of fighting often leaves him flabbergasted.

Because of his status as a member within the Sword of Logos, Rintaro has yet to acclimate to Earth, and isn't very knowledgeable about Japanese culture in general, in the applicable sense. This is made apparent when he arrives at Touma's bookstore for the first time while riding a blue lion because he had read that it is rude to enter with his shoes on.

He has a keen eye for good food, especially after his love for sweets is discovered.

Lion Senki (ライオン戦記 Raion Senki) is Blades' lion-based primary form accessed by using the Lion Senki Wonder Ride Book in the Seiken Swordriver.

In this form, Blades has slightly higher punching power and running speed when compared to Saber Brave Dragon, but has lower kicking power and maximum jump height.

Lion Senki consists of the following parts:

  • Blades Helm Lion Senki (ブレイズヘルム ライオン戦記 Bureizu Herumu Raion Senki): The head.
    • Sword Crown (ソードクラウン Sōdo Kuraun): It is installed on the top of the head as a proof of being selected by a Seiken. It has the role of adjusting the state of Kamen Rider Blades and the Seiken, and adjusts the power balance between them and cancels transformation in an emergency. It is also a blade with a sharp edge, and can also be used in battle.
    • Lion Senki Mask (ライオンセンキマスク Raion Senki Masuku): The helmet's forehead. With the power of the Lion Senki Wonder Ride Book, your eyesight and hearing will be sharpened, and you will be able to catch your prey sensitively.
    • Horizon Visor (ホライゾンバイザー Horaizon Baizā): The eyes. Accurately grasp the object like a water mirror and calmly assess the situation.
    • Right Mask (ライトマスク Raito Masuku): The right side of the helmet. It has the property of strongly acting on the sword technique of the user and exerts various abilities by applying the power of the Wonder Ride Book stored in the right shelf of the Seiken Swordriver. In particular, it is said to be compatible with the God Beast-based Wonder Ride Books.
    • Left Mask (レフトマスク Refuto Masuku): The left side of the helmet. It has a characteristic that strongly affects the activation of special abilities by the user and exerts various abilities by putting the power of the Wonder Ride Book contained in the left shelf of the Seiken Swordriver. It is said to be particularly compatible with the Story-based Wonder Ride Book.
  • Breas Lion (ブレスライオン Buresu Raion): The chest armor. It possesses the power of the animal "Lion Senki", and brings supple and high athletic ability to the user as a rule of thumb possessed by the King of Beasts. In addition, it is possible to release a violent torrent from the mouth of Lion Senki, which can be diverted to protect or capture the subject by adjusting the torrent.
  • Sword Robe (ソードローブ Sōdo Rōbu): The suit granted by the user of the Seiken "Suiseiken Nagare". It is attached at the same time as the awakening of the Seiken and gives the user the power to fight such as improving sword skills, strengthening physical abilities, and activating special abilities. This characteristic is assigned to the right half of the body, the center of the body, which is based on the Animal "Lion Senki", and the left half of the body.
  • Ride Right (ライドライト Raido Raito): The right side of the body. It has the property of strongly acting on the sword technique of the user and exerts various abilities by applying the power of the Wonder Ride Book stored in the light shelf of the Seiken Swordriver. In particular, it is said to be compatible with the God Beast-based Wonder Ride Books.
  • Ride Left (ライドレフト Raido Refuto): The left side of the body. It has the property of strongly acting on the activation of special abilities by the user and exerts various abilities by applying the power of the Wonder Ride Book stored in the left shelf of the Seiken Swordriver. Especially, it is said that it goes well with the story-based Wonder Ride Books.
  • Ride Arm (ライドアーム Raido Āmu): The left arm. The exterior of the armor "Sword Robe" is laminated armor called "Page Armor" (ページアーマー Pēji Āmā), which is formed by stacking trained plate armor in multiple layers. As a result, it has acquired strong defense and the flexibility to follow various actions.
  • Maned Il (メインドイル Meindo Iru, short for "Maned Mail"): The armor that extends from the front to the back, reminiscent of a flowing coat, sheds all shocks and resistance. As a result, it is possible to obtain the effect of speeding up running power and even combat motion.
  • Noble Sault (ノーブルソルト Nōburu Soruto): The legs and feet of the suit. Brings agile leg strength like a lion, runs through the ground, and accurately kills prey with sharp claws. Also, when the Special Move is activated, the destructive power of the kick is greatly increased by putting together a tremendous stream of water.

This form has four finishers:

  • Seiken Swordriver finishers:
    • Leo Cascade (レオ・カスケイド Reo Kasukeido): Blades traps the target in a water bubble fired from the Brace Lion on his chest before jumping after it, and delivering a kick.
    • Lion Wonder (ライオン・ワンダー Raion Wandā): Blades taps on the Lion Senki Wonder Ride Book, surrounding himself with water. Then delivers a water-enhanced slash that summons a blue mechanical lion that rams into the target.
  • Suiseiken Nagare finishers:
    • Hydro Stream (ハイドロ・ストリーム Haidoro Sutorīmu): Blades delivers a water-enhanced slash.
    • Shutoku Issen (習得一閃 Shūtoku Issen, Lit. "Learning Flash"): Blades scans a Wonder Ride Book against the tip of the blade, and performs an attack based off of it.
      • Jackun-to-Domamenoki: Blades delivers a slash that sends green bean-like projectiles flying at the enemy.

Behind the Scenes

Portrayal

Rintaro is portrayed by Takaya Yamaguchi (山口貴也 Yamaguchi Takaya). As Kamen Rider Blades, his suit actor is Eitoku (永徳 Eitoku)[10], who was the suit-actor for the secondary Heisei riders from Diend onwards (excluding Beast, Mach, Specter, Brave, Geiz).

Etymology

  • As with the naming scheme of all the Saber Riders, Blades' name is the plural form of the word "blade", the razor portion of a sword.

Concept Art

To be added

Memes

  • On Kamen Rider Saber episode 2, there is a scene where Rintaro smiles awkwardly during his first time meeting with both Touma and Mei. The scene was popular as a meme due to his awkward and suspicious smile after him proclaiming that he's not suspicious.

Notes

  • Kamen Rider Blades is the second lion-based secondary Rider after Kamen Rider Beast.
  • Kamen Rider Blades is the first Water element-themed Rider in the Reiwa era.
    • To an extent, he is the first Water element-themed Rider since Kamen Rider Aqua
  • Kamen Rider Blades shares a similar name with Kamen Rider Blade, albeit pluralized.
  • Kamen Rider Blades is the first secondary Rider to be played by Eitoku since Kamen Rider Cross-Z.
  • Kamen Rider Blades is the first secondary Rider in the Reiwa era to have his own Rider Machine.
    • He is also the first since Kamen Rider Specter to not use the same Rider Machine as the primary Rider of the series.
  • Rintaro is one of the few secondary Riders, following Iori Izumi & Akira Date, to not antagonize the primary Rider and instead of acting on friendly terms during their first appearance.
  • Similar to a fellow european knight-themed blue secondary Rider, Hiiro Kagami, Rintaro has a liking for sweets and desserts.
