Tom Fujita will star in the series as 20-year-old Haruka Mizusawa/Kamen Rider Amazon Omega, and Masashi Taniguchi (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni live-action film) will co-star as 38-year-old Jin Takayama/Kamen Rider Amazon Alpha.

The story will focus on two contrasting Kamen Rider Amazons. Additionally, Rena Takeda will play 17-year-old Midzuta Mizusawa, who is Haruka's younger sister-in-law; and Ayu Higashi will play 25-year-old Nanaha Izumi, Jin's partner.
Hidenori Ishida and Ryūta Tasaki are directing the series. Tarō Kobayashi is performing the theme song "Armour Zone." The 13-episode series will be available on April 1 from Amazon Prime instant video in Japan.
Kamen Rider Ghost, the latest installment in the long-running Kamen Rider special effects series, premiered on TV Asahi last October.
Kamen Rider Amazons is part of Toei's "Superhero Year," which celebrates the 45th anniversary of the Kamen Rider franchise and 40th anniversary of the Super Sentai franchise. The Kamen Rider 1-Gō film, which features both the original Kamen Rider character and Kamen Rider Ghost, will open in Japan on March 26.
