The stage play’s screenplay is being written by Shunto Nishi and Nobuhiro Mri, with Riku Sanj, the creator of the original manga, overseeing it.
The stage play’s soundtrack is being created by Kotaro Nakagawa and Shuhei Naruse, who also wrote the music for the FUUTO PI anime and live-action Kamen Rider W (pronounced “double”) series.
The stage play’s executive producer is Toei producer Hideaki Tsukada.
A follow-up manga for the 2009 Kamen Rider W series is called Fto Tantei. Sanj, an important original series writer, is in charge of writing the manga’s scripts. The manga is illustrated by Masaki Satou (Love Theory). In August 2017, Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits magazine published the manga’s first issue.
According to Toei, the manga is
FUUTO is under Shotaro and Philip’s protection, yet strange things continue to happen often on the other side of the city.
A new evil arrives in the form of the enigmatic beauty Tokime, and it spreads a shadow over the windy city.
For Kamen Rider W, a brand-new conflict has begun.
The FUUTO PI animation aired originally on the U-NEXT service on August 1 at midnight before making its television debut on the Tokyo MX channel on August 8. The anime is available for viewing in “North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East and CIS” on Crunchyroll.
The Kamen Rider series celebrates its 50th anniversary with the anime production.
The eleventh Kamen Rider program in Japan’s Heisei period aired from September 2009 to August 2010 under the title Kamen Rider W. Renn Kiriyama and Masaki Suda played Shotaro Hidari and Philip, respectively, in the television program.
