Tetsuo Kurata Returns to Kamen Rider


An online posting has revealed the return of Tetsuo Kurata as Kotaro Minami in a new Kamen Rider movie coming in April.

Tetsuo Kurata, who played Kotaro Minami / Kamen Rider Black (RX) from 1987 to 1989 in Kamen Rider BLACK and Kamen Rider BLACK RX, will return to the role next year.

Revealed through an update on the website for his restaurant, Billy the Kid, is Kurata’s return to the franchise. This will be his third time reprising the role on screen after appearing in Kamen Rider Decade and Kamen Rider Decade: All Riders VS DaiShocker. The post asks viewers to “enjoy Kotaro Minami’s new transformation,”.

    It bet it will have something to do with Black RX having the Ridoron and Drive having the Tridoron. I mean the Drive Driver even has a sound for Ridoron.

    I’m going to assume this is a Drive crossover – Tridoron and Ridoron side by side, makes sense right?
