Returning for Kamen Rider Heisei Generations: FINAL, Kamen Rider alums express their excitement to return to their respective roles on social media.


Revealed yesterday, a teaser trailer for the Kamen Rider Heisei Generations: FINAL movie showcased returning actors: Shu Watanabe (Eiji Hino, Kamen Rider OOO), Ryosuke Miura (Ankh, Kamen Rider OOO), Sota Fukushi (Kisaragi Gentarou, Kamen Rider Fourze), and Gaku Sano (Kouta Kazuraba, Kamen Rider Gaim).

Sota Fukushi posted on his blog:

Everyone is surprised, but I’m probably the most surprised!
It’s been 5 years since returning to Kamen Rider, it feels so long ago, but actually not so long ago. The movie is set in the 5 years later setting, so it’s somewhat predestined!
(Being back on set and meeting the old staff again) I was so nervous. I’m back to my origin.
The reason why I decided to play a role again is of course because I purely love Fourze and I am appreciative of it. Plus, the producer of Fourze had offered me the role. For me personally, I remembered what it was like during my youth while we were filming.
(Talking about Seiji Takaiwa) At the time I was too young and I didn’t go talk to him much. This time, I did a little lol.

Ryosuke Miura first posted on Twitter an image of Ankh’s broken core medal with the phrase “Eiji. It was no mistake that I chose you” and officially revealed later his involvement with the movie stating “In any case, to all the fans, producers, staff, Shu Watanabe, Eiji, Anhk, please allow me to show my appreciation. Thank you.”

 

Shun Nishime, donning his new black hair, posted on his Twitter announcing his return and even pointed out that the movie became a trending topic in Japan yesterday.

I’ve got some great news for everybody!!!!
I will be returning as Takeru Tenku, Kamen Rider Ghost, in Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL!
I’ve eaten too many of the seaweed part of rice balls and my hair has turned black lol
Been a while, but my life is burning bright!

 

 

 

 

Gaku Sano officially announced his return and shared a photo from the set.

I’m home.
I will be acting as Kouta Kuzuraba in Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL.

 

Shu Watanabe posted on his Instagram a picture of himself holding Ankh’s broken core medal saying “Let’s go, Ankh” and followed up with a video on Twitter announcing his and Miura’s return to the movie.
