The Japanese broadcaster TV Asahi began streaming a preview for the new Kamen Rider Fourze television series this weekend. The 13th live-action special-effects series in the Kamen Rider franchise's modern Heisei era will premiere on September 4.
The new series will feature the "first astronaut Rider" to mark the 40th anniversary of Shotaro Ishinomori's Kamen Rider franchise and the 50th anniversary of the first manned space flight. The "Rider version of the 'adolescent school drama'" will center around high school students who dream about outer space. The main character is Gentarō Kisaragi, a "bad boy" who transfers into a new school as a second-year student. When Kentarō meets a schoolmate named Kengo Utahoshi with a mysterious "Astro Switch," the fateful switch turns on, and Kamen Rider Fourze is born.
Update: Gentarō's spelling fixed Thanks, ukiya_seed.
