Kamen Riders In the Sky
The Deal With the Devil
Joe Shigeru (speaking about the new hero): It's said that the Main State is built on legend. Legacies that could help us understand things too awesome to believe. This is the story of Kamen Rider. Story goes that every generation has one, the deal with devil to ride the earth. About 4 decades ago, a Kamen Rider was sent to Kobe to to find a Sekirei, a supernatural lifeform much like our own in appearance. But every like Sekirei this with a single kiss from her "Ashikabi" was so powerful, he knew he couldn't let evil get his hands on her. So he did what no Rider has ever done...He outran he who created the Game. The thing about legend is that some legends...are true.

Fifteen year old Kotaro Minami was a member biking stunt show. His only problem was at that time was that his father was a smoker and had lung cancer. One night, while he was working on one of the bikes, a stranger came. This stranger wore a white coat and had glasses and a grey hair.
Stranger: Kotaro Minami.
Stranger: I really enjoyed your ride.
Kotaro: Ah, thanks.
Stranger: Perhaps you could ride for me.
Kotaro: You run a show?
Stranger: The greatest show on Earth.
Kotaro: Thanks, but no.
Stranger: What's wrong, Kotaro? Worried about your father?
Kotaro: What do you know about him?
Stranger: Even the blindest can see the sickest. The thing about cancer is that it takes a toll on love ones. Kotaro...what if I can cure your father's illness?
Stranger: The question is not "How". If I could cure his illness, will you be wiliing to make a deal?
Kotaro: At what price?
Stranger: You will wear this...(makes the belt appear) the King Stone. By sunrise tomorrow, your father will be healthy. Now all you have to do is put this on.
Kotaro put the belt, on then he found himself in bed. He woke up. His father was healthy alright. At the bike show he had a accident falling head first. Kotaro spotted the stranger. He went out on his bike until he was hit.
Stranger: You're no good to me when you're dead.
Kotaro: You! You killed him!
Stranger: I cured his cancer. That was the deal. I couldn't let him get between us.
Kotaro: You monster! (throws a fist but misses and looks around in confusion)
Stranger (Reappears and touches Kotaro): One day, when I need you, I will come. Until then, I will be watching you. You're mine, Kotaro.
Ten years passed and Kotaro was now bike racing. He had a singles apartment though. One day, when he was returning from his hard-day's work on his bike (motorcycle as it were), Kotaro, overheard the news.
Anchorwoman: Continuing on, news on the economy. CEO Minaka of the giant conglomerate MBA (Mid Bio Informatics) announced that his company bought up to 80% of Kobe stocks.
As the image came up, Kotaro recognized the man he made the deal with.
Anchorwoman: In response to this, the Kobe goverment objected...
Kotaro: So, he takes my father's life away...and takes over Kobe. How selfish of him!
It was obvious that he was filled with grief after seeing the man responsible since 10 years back, despite his career.
Kotaro noticed an unfamiliar building.
He had been sad since his father died, but was able to find a job based on his talent and hobby. Though he felt good about what he could do, Kotaro was rather shy when it comes to girls. He had left his home his home in Tsuruoka since the earthquake a year after his father's death. When Japan recovered, Kotaro moved to Kobe.
Kotaro stopped at a red light. Suddenly, he heard a voice. It was a girl falling from the sky!
Girl: Heads up!
But it was too late. She landed on Kotaro's torso. The fall caused Kotaro to fall off his bike. His head hit the ground so hard, his helmet fell off. His vision had to adjust since the glaring visor in front of his eyes. This girl wore a miko based clothes. Kotaro was shocked as he saw a girl's bottom showing!
Girl: Guess it was too high for me.
Kotaro: Are you alright?
Girl: Thank you so much! You must've caught me!
Kotaro: No, actually...
Kotaro thought to himself, "Although she is cute." Suddenly, lighting came in. The girl leaped at Kotaro dodging it.
As they both landed on the ground, the girl's breasts somewhat went shoving onto Kotaro's face. She turned and looked up. There were two other girls that looked alike, except that one was bigger breasts. Both wore S&M clothes.
Twin A: There's no escaping. Now fight us!
Girl: I can't fight yet!
Twin B: Even if you don't feel like it...we do!
The girl grabbed Kotaro by the hand and ran.
Kotaro: Hey, what about my bike?
The girl was running too fast to listen. When they got for enough from the twins, the girl stopped.
Girl: We should be safe here. (Noticing a Kotaro was in a shock) Are you alright? Sorry for getting you involved. Now that I think of it, I could've run off myself. So...why did I save you're life? Oh! Right, I meant to introduce myself! I am Musubi.
Kotaro: Kotaro Minami.
Musubi: Kotaro-san, thank you again for helping me.
Kotaro: No, I didn't really...
Kotaro began to wonder who those twins were and what they had against Musubi. He then noticed Musubi laying on the ground. So he took her to his apartment and offered his food.
Musubi: You're my hero...
Kotaro: Alright, just eat up.
As soon as Musubi was done with her eating...
Musubi: I was wondering...will you be my Ashikabi?
Musubi (taking Kotaro's hand): Someone precious, one I hadn't known until this day. We were all born for our own Ashikabis. To guide him to the heavens.
It came as a shock to Kotaro when Musubi set his hand onto her breast. But then, Musubi fainted though she was still conscious.
Musubi: Why...why does my body feep getting hotter? What should I do?
Musubi hovered over Kotaro. What was this about? Was she trying to seduce him as she might've for where she set his hand onto her breast? In response to her actions, Kotaro spoke up.
Kotaro: You don't have to do this...
Musubu kissed Kotaro and a symbol appeared on her back. Wings came out, too. Kotaro couldn't believe what he saw.
Musubi: I found one...I found one! My Ashikabi! (embraces Kotaro)
Just then, a shout from the television sounded. Kotaro turned and saw who it was.
Grey hair: Hello, Kotaro. (As Kotaro picks up the remote) Wait! Don't touch that dial!
Kotaro: What are you doing on our tv?
Grey Hair: I just wanted to congratulate you! You have been chosen by a Sekirei!
Musubi: Professor Hiroto Minaka!
Minaka: Ah! #88 Musubi! Are you well?
Kotaro: You know him?
Musubi: Yes, he's our professor and CEO.
Minaka: How can you forget about me after 10 years?
Kotaro: Why did you buy the entire city? And how did you manage to contact us on a TV?
Minaka: Ha! Nothing's impossible for me. Setting that aside...the Sekirei Plan! That's the name of the game you're now participating in.
Kotaro: "Sekirei Plan"?
Minaka: The rules are simple, there are 108 Sekireis. Sekireis fight, fight, fight! The Ashikabi of the last remaining Sekirei is given permision to ascend, and Ashikabi who overcome the odds will hold the the fate of the world in his hands! And now that you know about this, you will be obligated to maintain confidentiality whether you like it or not.
Kotaro: Whether I like it or not?
Minaka: If you breach in confidentially, we, the MBI, will torment you mercilessly. So, keep that on your mind.
Kotaro: Wait a minute..."torment"? "Mercilessly"?
Minaka: That is all. I must go.
Kotaro: Hang on! What do you mean "torment"?
Minaka: Take care, Musubi.
Musubi: See you later, Professor.
Kotaro: I don't understand this "torment".
Musubi: Kotaro-san...I'll fight for you. And we will live so we can ascend together.
The next morning, when Kotaro was tossing and turning, he was greeted by the bump of his hand on Musubi's cleavage. He woke up with a startle. Kotaro backed away until he bumped into the wall. Musubi woke up.
Kotaro: I didn't wake you up, did I?
Musubi: Good morning. Thank you for this pajamas. (unbuttons causing Kotaro to nosebleed) I took a futon all to myself. Sorry. Uh, Kotaro-san?
Musubi crawled up to Kotaro, but Kotaro was too freaked out.
Kotaro: Sorry! I'll wait outside. (runs out the door) This is crazy! I wanna die...after seeing a girl's...b-b-b-bo...boobs!
Musubi (comes out the door): Kotaro-sama.
Kotaro (Turns and looks): Oh, you changed. That was quick.
Musubi: Sorry I have no sense of living.
Kotaro: Oh, that thing before...I actually liked it. I'm just not that type of person that expects a girl to go naked in front of a guy.
Musubi: I'm relieved.
Kotaro: Just don't do that again, okay.
Musubi: I won't do it without Kotaro-sama's approval!
Kotaro: So, why did they choose me?
Musubi: You weren't chosen. You were pulled into it, and we are able to use our power through the genes of Ashikabis. I don't know much, but...(kisses Kotaro) My body responds like this.
Once again, the wings appeared on Musubi's back. Kotaro remembered it happening since their first kiss.
Musubi: When I wished that you would become my Ashikabi, my heart beats fast, and my body gets hotter (literally). I thought I could do anything if I think about it now, when I was being chased by other Sekireis...I think we were meant for each other.
Kotaro couldn't help but gaze at Musubi.
Musubi: Kotaro-sama...I'm hungry.
Kotaro: Okay, I understand.
With enough money from his time at the biking racetrack, Kotaro took Musubi to a restaurant. Musubi had so much, Kotaro had to pay the huge bill. They then set off to find Kotaro's bike. When they did, Kotaro spotted a familiar sight. The two sisters were selling balloons (only they were wearing maid/waitress clothes)! One of the sisters spotted him, too.
Sister A: YOU! You're that boy that Sekirei coward was with!
Kotaro: You must be sisters, the ones from yesterday, only and the S&M customs!
Sister B: Where is the Sekirei?
Musubi: Kotaro-sama! I meant to ask what you want to eat.
Kotaro: WAIT! Stay back!
Musubi stopped, realizing she had fallen into a trap.
Sister B: What a fool, meeting us twice in a week.
Sister A: One big country, one small town. (both form electric energy)
Sister B: Too late! (sisters strike lighting at Musubi)
Musubi's robe tore apart revealing a symbol.
Sister A: The Mark of the Sekirei! She wears it! Did she grow her wings? Then the Ashikabi...the boy!
Kotaro grabbed Musubi and they got on his bike.
Sister A: Dammit! He's escaped! Hibiki, let's take them on both flanks!
Kotaro and Musubi arrived in the alley.
Musubi: I'm getting hot...What should I do?
They weren't alone for long. Hibiki and her sister Hikari found them. Musubi was breathing so heavily, Kotaro wondered what was ailing her. But then, she kissed him. Hibiki and Hikari were shocked. The wings came out of Musubi's back. There was something else. The buckle, which Minaka had given Kotaro 10 years ago, appeared on him. He was about to transform into a black humanoid with a grasshopper-like face. Suddenly, three phantom-like monster priests appeared. Hibiki and Hikari were shocked and wanted nothing to do with this, so they took off.
Priest A: Looking for someone, Black? I don't think we'll be having a long cconversation, are we?
Black: You're going down.
Priest A: We shall see.
Black jumped forward at the monster priests. Musubi faced the priestess.
Priestess: Not bad for a Sekirei.
Just when Black was about to make his move, he stepped into a web trap. A spider monster appeared. But then, a grasshopper-like motorcycle appeared. It rammed the spider monster onto the ground and stopped at Black's position.
Black: Battle Hopper.
Black grabbed onto the handles of the Battle Hopper and it pulled him out of the web. Black rode toward the spider. The spider emitted a silk of wep, but Black grabbed the string. He then swung the spider monster in the air. It fell to the ground. It wasn't finished yet, but Black had a new move. He turned away and then sped forward and leaped.
Black: Rider Kick!
His foot flashed as he sent a flying kick at the monster. The monster was defeated and Black returned to Musubi. The monster priests were gone but not destroyed. Kotaro took off his button shirt.
Musubi: Kotaro-sama, are okay?
Kotaro: I'm fine. Just that...your chest. By the way, what are you?
Musubi: A Sekirei!
Kotaro: Oh, that's right.
Elsewhere in Kobe, the sisters were being watched by a silver-haired man wearing a mask.
Hikari: Don't you have anything better to do?
Masked Man: I see the Sekirei you've been pursuing has found herself an Ashikabi. Fights between Sekireis...I have no interest in that, compared to them and the Riders working together to defeat the Gorgom.
Hikari: Gorgom? What does that have to do with this?
Masked man: It is a criminal organization, and I know you'd be much happier if you made friends with another Sekirei as you would for a human.
Hikari: I'll never understand this man.
Hibiki: There are other people out there looking for us. After all, what's the point of fighting another Sekirei? We could've fought those ghostly freaks that showed up.
After their shopping for food, they went home, and Musubi started cooking dinner, and they ate. Unfortunately, they had been caught by Kotaro's landlord.
Kotaro: Uh, sir...I can explain...
Landlord: GET...OUT! Jeez. We had a contract for this singles only apartment, and you violated it!
Kotaro took Musubi on his bike. It was a full moon that night. They rode on until Kotaro was too tired to focus hence arriving near some sort of inn. They both took a rest at the fence until Kotaro noticed an old man appear.
Old man: Hello, newcomer.
