The venerable Kamen Rider franchise is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021. Alongside new tasks like Shin Kamen Rider, Toei commemorated the event with freebies for abroad followers within the type of uploads from varied Kamen Rider sequence. The newest to hit the block is a full-sized film: Kamen Rider Reiwa: The First Generation.
Kamen Rider Reiwa isn’t the title of a selected Rider, however it’s the key phrase for the film, which is a crossover between two exhibits: 2018’s Kamen Rider Zi-O and 2019’s Kamen Rider Zero-One. Both packages had been on the air in the beginning of Japan’s Reiwa period, which started in May 2019. Keeping with Toei’s follow of grouping Rider exhibits by their period (2000’s Kamen Rider Kuuga was the primary program of the Heisei period), Zi-O and Zero-One are the “first generation” of Reiwa-era Kamen Riders. And they’re collectively within the film, which serves as bridge of types between the 2 sequence.
The Kamen Rider Reiwa: The First Generation film takes place after the top of Kamen Rider Zi-O, and shortly into the run of Kamen Rider Zero-One. Aruto Hiden, the CEO of “HumaGear” android producer Hiden Intelligence, encounters a wierd state of affairs whereby he’s attacked by mysterious HumaGears and an evil clone of his Rider alter-ego. Meanwhile, Sougo Tokiwa, who gave up the mantle of Kamen Rider Zi-O after saving time and house, should put the belt on once more to unravel the thriller of why his lecturers have instantly grow to be murderous androids.
