Oh man..this is amazing. This definitely brings some legitimacy to this rider movie. It’s the real deal, not some throwaway rider movie with suits and fake voice actors. The first ever Kamen Rider, Ichigo!!! from 1971. Coming back in 2014!! Now why couldn’t he reprise his role in the 40th anniversary rider movie in person??? Oh well whatever, hes back for real this time!!! I’m sight for this movie!!
