Amanogawa High School might seem like a normal school but weird stuff had happened lately. They get weirder when transfer student Gentaro Kisaragi attempts to make friends in his own unique way, reuniting with childhood friend and self-professed space travel fan Yuki Jojima. All while gaining the ire of loner Kengo Utahoshi, the school's popular girl Miu Kazashiro and her enforcer jock boyfriend Shun Daimonji, as lurid dressed social butterfly JK and goth girl Tomoko Nozama observe. Kengo and Yuki found devices in the Rabbit Hatch lunar base that they accessed through a locker in a forbidden part of the campus.
When the Zodiarts, monsters begin to appear on campus, Kengo and Yuki use the devices to fight them. Nevertheless, Gentaro interferes in their plans, in part due to Kengo's body unable to handle the strains of battle, and uses the devices to transform into Kamen Rider Fourze. Gentaro Kisaragi forms the Kamen Rider Club to gain new friends at Amanogawa High School, named after Fourze's predecessors: the various Kamen Riders. The club's members assist Kamen Rider Fourze in his battles against the Zodiarts. he Kamen Rider Club's headquarters are the remains of the Rabbit Hatch lunar base owned by the Outer Space Technology Organization which developed the Kamen Rider Fourze technology and the Zodiarts Switches. The Rabbit Hatch can be accessed by a Cosmic Energy powered portal found in a locker in an abandoned part of the AGHS campus. In episode 11, the locker that connects the Rabbit Hatch is removed from the abandoned club room, leaving Kengo stranded on the Moon, and it is later seemingly destroyed by the Pyxis Zodiarts.
However, it is successfully recovered by Tomoko after she discovers that Mr. Ohsugi took the real locker for himself after believing Yuki's lie about it being Ms. Sonoda's locker while she was a student. They proceed to permanently secure the locker in place with screws to prevent it from ever being easily moved away again. Tomoko puts various magical charms around the locker for protection. At the end of the series, the Rabbit Hatch is destroyed in an attack by the Leo Zodiarts and Sagittarius Nova. After Sagittarius Nova's defeat, the Kamen Rider Club reinvents itself in the series epilogue as the Earth-based Space Kamen Rider Club. However, with an ally in the newest club member, Ryusei Sakuta, Kamen Rider Meteor, Gentaro continues to protect his friends as well as his school from the threat of the Horoscopes. They are also joined by their teacher Mr. Chuta Ohsugi. It would be during the end of his first fall term in Amanogawa High that Gentaro and his friends lead the Horoscopes are an inner circle led by Mituaki Gamou, who is not only the school chairman but also was a presumed friend of Kengo's father.
