Spectre looks like a barrel of laughs doesn't he? Meanwhile we have Sagara's son and Shunpei's equally colour-blind grandpa

Cast is both small and has only one woman, not looking good so far

Reo Kansyuji will play a character named Narita. Takuya Mizoguchi will play an undisclosed role.

Character bios:

Takeru Tenkuuji/Kamen Rider Ghost (Shun Nishime)
The hero of the story who transforms into Kamen Rider Ghost. The heir to the Tenkuuji Temple. His father was a Ghost Hunter named Ryu who died 10 years ago. Takeru is bright, carefree, and reckless youth who will not go against his beliefs.

Takeru was murdered while by a Ganma summoned by Onari while protecting his childhood friend Akari. He was resurrected as a ghost by a mysterious hermit and given the power to fight as Kamen Rider Ghost. However, he only has 99 days before he disappears.

In order to revive himself, he must collect the 15 Ghost Eyecons within 99 days. Takeru won’t forgive anyone who treats life lightly. His catchphrase is “my life is burningâ€(?). Following the same road as his father, Takeru aims to confront his destiny as a Ghost Hunter.

Akari Tsukimura (Hikaru Osawa)
The main heroine. Takeru’s childhood friend, she’s cares for Takeru as if he were her own brother. Believing that there’s a scientific explanation for everything, Akari attends university where she majors in physics. This “cute girl science major†helps Takeru with his ghost hunting while also trying to “bend†his own beliefs about the paranormal.

Makoto Fukami/Kamen Rider Spectre (Ryosuke Yamamoto)
Another Rider that transforms with a Ghost Driver. He’s collecting the Ghost Eyecons for an unknown reason. The opposite of Takeru, Makoto is cool and rational. An expert in combat, he’ll be Takeru’s strongest rival.

Onari (Takayuki Yanagi)
The head priest of the Tenkuuji Temple. Out of respect for Ryu, he’s watching over Takeru as he grows as a Ghost Hunter. As a spirit theorist, Onari doesn’t get along with Akari. Even though he’s quite serious, Onari usually ends up being responsible for setting the mood/atmosphere.

Mysterious Man (Morishita Yoshiyuki)
The mysterious man that has been summoning the Ganma. Like Takeru and Makoto, he is also collecting the Ghost Eyecons. The reason for this isn’t known. He’s also one of the few people to know the Ghost Eyecons’ secret.

Alan (Hayato Isomura)
Collecting the Ghost Eyecons with the Mysterious Man, Allan seems to be his subordinate but his history is shrouded in mystery.

Sennin (Naoto Takenaka)
The man who revived Takeru, prefers to be called “Uncleâ€. Knowing that Takeru possesses a Ghost Eyecon, he teaches him to “fight against destriny†and grants him the power to fight as Kamen Rider Ghost. A seemingly innocent man, Sennin seems to know everything but usually ends up conveniently disappearing at the worst times.

^Some of it seems different from what I read?
Takeru lost his life while protecting Akari and Onari from a Ganma which suddenly appeared.

Alan is not the subordinate of the Mysterious man, but seems to be on equal terms with him

Ah, shoot! I forgot to edit that part before I posted it. Arghhh!!! I also wasn't clear on Alan's role either. Thank you for pointing these out!

Why is a character called Alan? People named Alan are like Norm from the Twix ads. It's not a very exciting name for a Kamen Rider character (I apologise to any Alans on this board, but it's true)
 

Ryuutaros

"Training."
So Spectre will be there at the start of the show?


This reminds me of Ryuki or Gaim where different parties fight each other for a prize.
 
... and Onari is supposed to be one of the good guys?!

I'm guessing a summoning ritual gone wrong.

This is actually a very nice cast. Naoto Takenaka is a very likable actor with some great comedic timing, I'm glad to see he's going to be an integral part of the show. I've seen Yoshiyuki Morishita in quite a bit (he's even had bit parts in Hollywood movies that take place in Japan like Kill Bill and The Grudge), but I don't remember any of his characters particularly well. Still, two people out of the main cast that I actually recognize has to be a record for me.

Calling it now before anyone else does, Alan will be the third Kamen Rider.

And I think I already have a crush on Hikaru Ozawa. Hopefully the show treats her character trying to become a physicist with respect, although the line "cute girl science major" doesn't raise my hopes.

Oh Christ, do we REALLY need another "burning" catchphrase this year? It doesn't work in Ninninger no matter how hard they try, I have no reason to believe it will work here.

Alan is not the name of a Kamen Rider. It is the name of an accountant. Whose co-workers hate him, and flush his sales reports down the toilet.

(Also they tend to like introducing new characters as Riders, and our secondary Rider is someone that's already in the cast, so ...)

Yeahhhh it reminds me of how Drive's promo material described Kiriko as "beautiful but strict police officer" and of course she defaults to Hero's Love Interest and Damsel In Distress When We Want To Promote The Movies

Takuya Mizoguchi will play Shibuya. He previously portrayed young Ryotaro/Den-O starting from "I'm Born!"
Kazuhiko Nishimura, Liveman’s Joh Ohara/Yellow Lion, will portray Ryu Tenkuuji, Takeru’s late father
Yasuomi Sano will portray Yasushi Onodera
Popular voice actress Aoi Yūki will voice a character named Yurusen (could she voice the Ghost Driver?)
Shimamoto Kazuhiko has been confirmed as the monster designer (as rumoured)
The Big Bang Project will assist with monster designs

Well, okay, maybe not necessarily the third Kamen Rider. But he will be a Kamen Rider at some point. His whole "mysterious past" thing just screams Kamen Rider material. Gives me a big Chaser vibe for some reason.

Awesome, glad to see him show up again. I mean, he's probably only going to be in one or two episodes, but it's always nice to see Toei make these callbacks.

Popular voice actress Aoi Yūki will voice a character named Yurusen (could she voice the Ghost Driver?)

Kamen Rider Gaim is written by Madoka Magica's head writer, Kamen Rider Ghost features Madoka. It's funny how that show has made an impact on Kamen Rider these last few years.

Shimamoto Kazuhiko has been confirmed as the monster designer (as rumoured)

Whoa, one of Ishinomori's last protegees? Awesome. Hopefully this means we'll get some memorable monsters this year.

Spectre seems to fill that role, though. The "mysterious past" could be something like the mystery surrounding Sagara ... he even looks like Sagara, lol

Takeru is the "sky" (Tenkū 天空) and Makoto is the "deep sea" (Fukami 深海). It's very likely that a third Rider would be "Earth" (Daichi 大地).

I admit, I'm not totally sold on Takeru's actor (the guy looks a liiiittle young, and too much like Wataru from Kiva for my taste), but hey, can't judge a book by it's cover. Everyone else looks fine.

Also, it sounds like EVERYONE has a secret of some kind. Let's hope that works for the shows favor.

Several more, including one where he can't reach the pedals of his own motorbike.

So my first thought...well OK, my first thought was "wow that's an 'interesting' shirt, new lead guy", but aside from that...is it just me or is Spectre's outfit some kind of uniform? Are we in "mysterious organisation" territory again? More importantly, will his boss be making cake?

Takeru's shirt looks like a modern reinterpretation of traditional japanese clothing. I like it.


So how old are these cast members? They look like high school kids. Another Toqger situation?

Lead actor Nishime is 17, while the other young cast are in their 20s.
We don't know the ages of their characters but should be close to the actual ages of the actors.
