On April 21 in Japan, two of the most popular series from that country will finally face off against each other. KAMEN RIDER X SUPER SENTAI: THE SUPER HERO WAR will hit theaters on that day in Japan.
In 2011, Shotaro Ishinomori’s creations of KAMEN RIDER and the SUPER SENTAI SERIES celebrated anniversaries. In 1971, the late Ishinomori unleashed KAMEN RIDER to audiences and in 1975, created the first Super Sentai show, HIMITSU SENTAI GORANGER for audiences.
The plot of what could be this epic war between Japan’s most beloved heroes since ULTRAMAN, involves Kamen Rider Decade (reprised by Masahiro Inoue) leading the evil organizations previously defeated by the Kamen Riders, known as “Great Shocker”, in an attack against the Super Sentai teams. Meanwhile, the last Super Sentai Red Ranger, GokaiRed (reprised by Ryota Ozawa) becomes commander of the “Great Zangyack” Army in an attack against the Kamen Riders.
The current Kamen Rider, Fourze (Sota Fukishi), and the current Super Sentai team, the Go-Busters (Katsuhiro Suzuki, Ryoma Baba, and Arisa Komiya) also do battle in this upcoming film. However, the Rangers and Riders soon begin to wonder why they are fighting when they both have been heroic in protecting the Earth.
Osamu Kaneda directed the film with a script from Shoji Yonemura. According to Crunchy Roll, it is possible with the amount of costumed actors involved in the film, they may go for a Guinness World Record of just that: Most Costumed Actors in One Film?
Meanwhile, Japanese audiences will enjoy KAMEN RIDER X SUPER SENTAI: THE SUPERHERO WAR on April 21.
