Message from Sosuke Ikematsu
Additionally, the Shin Kamen Rider website was updated to feature a message from Sosuke Ikematsu. It reads:
I can’t believe the day has come for me to become Kamen Rider. I think Hideaki Anno is one of Japan’s treasures. It is a great honor to receive such a challenge and opportunity to bring back Kamen Rider with him.
In this time of great change in the world, people should not be afraid to look deep within themselves, and they should not forget how harsh the natural world is. It is the time to leap into a new world, to overcome difficulties, and to enter a new stage. In other words, “to transform”. I hope to embody this through Shin Kamen Rider.
Filming begins soon, but I believe that Kamen Rider is necessary for this world’s rebirth. No matter what difficulties lie ahead, I will fight to protect the Earth until the very end.
Please look forward to the movie’s release in 2023.
The Hideaki Anno Exhibition will be held at the National Art Center in Tokyo from October 1st, 2021. Find out more about the exhibition here. Shin Kamen Rider is slated for a March 2023 release.
