posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account of Amazon Video Japan announced on Tuesday that the Kamen Rider Amazons web series will get a second season next spring. The 13-episode first season debuted on April 1 on Amazon Prime instant video in Japan, and is currently streaming a new episode weekly.
Tom Fujita stars in the series as 20-year-old Haruka Mizusawa/Kamen Rider Amazon Omega, and Masashi Taniguchi (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni live-action film) co-stars as 38-year-old Jin Takayama/Kamen Rider Amazon Alpha. Haruka has a weak body and stays inside all the time, spending his days feeding his tropical fish. Jin is an Amazon who also hunts other Amazons. The story focuses on two contrasting Kamen Rider Amazons. Additionally, Rena Takeda plays 17-year-old Midzuta Mizusawa, who is Haruka's younger sister-in-law; and Ayu Higashi plays 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."
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, opened in Japan on March 26.
