It has been 45 years since Takeshi Hongo first became a cyborg after an experiement gone wrong, he then set out in order to combat the evil organization known as Shocker that made him the Kamen Rider. The iconic motorcycle riding cyborg hero in a grasshopper suit ‘rider kicked’ his way into fans hearts and remains ingrained in the Japanese Pop Culture all these years later.
This year marks the 45th anniversary of Kamen Rider and the 40th anniversary of Super Sentai, in order to celebrate Toei is releasing a new Kamen Rider film which will see the return of Takeshi Hongo as Kamen Rider 1 for the first time in roughly 40 years! The film is titled Kamen Rider 1 – Go and will be the first of many anniversary celebrations throughout the year. There will be more news posted on those when they come to light.
You can check out the trailer for the upcoming 45th anniversary special below. I for one am absolutely stoked to see Kamen Rider 1 ride again and kick some Shocker ass. Let us know what you think in the comments section.
