TOKU announced in a press release that the follow-up to Kamen Rider Kuuga will be coming to its service in November.
TOKU HD announced today that they will be premiering 2001’s Kamen Rider Agito this November. Kamen Rider Agito, the successor to Kamen Rider Kuuga which made its North American debut on TokuSHOUTsu earlier this year, was a celebration of the Kamen Rider series’s 30th anniversary. Now, Agito will also be making its North American debut with its tagline, “Awaken the soul.”
Previously, the TOKU television network and its streaming service were known for bringing live-action Asian shows and movies to a worldwide audience with its most notable offerings including Ultra Series shows. Now, with TokuSHOUTsu premiering the first of its new Ultraman offerings from partner Mill Creek Entertainment on November 1st, TOKU’s addition of Agito brings it into a more competitive position against Shout! Factory’s own tokusatsu-focused channel.
When a man awakens with amnesia only to discover he has the power to transform into the warrior, Agito, he will fight dangerous monsters that murder randomly selected humans around Tokyo. When the police provide support with the G3 power suit, originally intended for fighting the unidentified lifeforms fought by Kuuga, Agito will work with G3 to uncover mysteries. What will happen when Kamen Rider Gills appears and reveals why his father committed suicide?
Fans of Kamen Rider Kuuga won’t find a sequel, according to Shinichiro Shirakura, but rather a new story that takes place in the same world:
“It is not a sequel to Kuuga, so take to the show with that in mind.”
Kamen Rider Agito will premiere on TOKU HD at 7:30 pm on November 3rd, just two days after TokuSHOUTsu’s Ultraman shows will start airing.
TOKU is available as a television channel through AT&T U-verse, Claro Puerto Rico, Hotwire Communications, Consolidated Communications, Sjobergs Inc., IFiber Communications, and OptiLink. It’s available as video on demand through Optimum, Xfinity, Vubiquity, Frontier FiOS, and Armstrong. TOKU’s content is available for streaming through Amazon Prime, WatchToku.com, and its TOKU HD apps which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
