The 13-episode first season debuted last April on Amazon Prime instant video in Japan, and streamed a new episode weekly. It premiered on BS Asahi and Tokyo MX last July.
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 Mizuki Mizusawa, who is Haruka's younger sister-in-law; and Ayu Higashi plays 25-year-old Nanaha Izumi, Jin's partner.
