Kamen Rider 000 Production Annoucement

The 12th Kamen Rider series of the Heisei era, the cast and the design of Kamen Rider 000 were formally introduced at the production announcement event held in Tokyo 2 days ago (June 1st). The production company, TV Asahi already has a special page up on its website introducing this new Kamen Rider.

Back to one-person henshin this time, ^^ the protagonist is Eiji Hino (火野映司) played by Shu Watanabe (渡部秀), and the henshin is via three coins called "Medals". By inserting the medals into different slots on his belt, Kamen Rider 000 can have multiple forms, all based on the theme of different animals.

A video clip showing the preview of this new Kamen Rider series:

Video clip is from Youtube. Follow this link to the website if you can't see anything.

If I'm not reading it wrongly, Shu Watanabe aims for Kamen Rider 000 to be number 1 among the 12 Heisei era Kamen Rider series from the video. ^^

From one of the images above, looks like there's going to be a bike that will turn into a vending machine of some sort. ^^ Quite interesting, not sure how that's going to work though. ^^
