The 31st issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Spirits magazine revealed on Monday that Toei's new sequel project for its 2009 Kamen Rider W (pronounced "double") series will be a new manga titled Fūto Tantei (Fūto Detectives) that will debut in the magazine on July 8.
Riku Sanjo, a crucial writer for the original series, is in charge of the manga's scripts. Masaki Satou (Love Theory) is drawing the manga. Toei producer Hideaki Tsukada is supervising the manga. Katsuya Terada (Blood: The Last Vampire, Silk Road Kids) is credited for creature design.
As with the original series, the new sequel is once again set in Fūto city and will focus on the characters Shōtarō Hidari and Philip.
The Kamen Rider W series aired from 2009 to 2010.
Satou's Love Theory manga with writer Keiya Mizuno (Yume o Kanaeru Zō) launched in Futabasha's Manga Action magazine in June 2012 and ended in 2014. The manga inspired a live-action television series adaptation in December 2014. Crunchyroll published chapters of the manga as they debuted in Japan.
