What better way to celebrate fifty years? Came Riders than with some badass new suits? This autumn, Kamen Rider Black Sun is coming to Japan bringing with her some ridiculously cool outfits, masked helmets and cute motorbikes.

Kamen Rider Black Sun is not to be confused with Hideaki Anos Shin Kamen Rider Movie, which is slated for a March 2023 release. But annos Shin Godzilla Associate Shinji Higuchi, who also directs Shin Ultramanworks as black sun‘s designer for visual concepts. And the designs certainly have an edge, right?

Gosh these suits are awesome. The original show’s suits were also black (check out the show’s opening exactly here), but they were more polished and less gritty. The new suits look like American comic book film production has restarted.

And look at those bikes!

First Announced in spring 2021 the show is a reboot of the series Kamen Rider Blackwhich originally aired in Japan between October 4, 1987 and October 9, 1988. It was a seminal series and the last that Shotaro Ishinomori was involved with.

Similar to the original, the new show also follows the story of stepbrothers – Kotaro Minami and Nobuhiko Akizuki – who undergo cyborg surgery and become rivals of Kamen Rider Black Sun and Shadow Moon. The two end compete against each other to see who is the strongest. Actor Hidetoshi Nishijima will play Kotaro Minami and Kamen Rider Black Sun, while Tomoya Nakamura will play Nobuhiko Akizuki and Kamen Rider Shadow Moon.

Award-winning, highly respected director Kazuya Shiraishi (The Devil’s Way and The blood of the wolves) will direct the show. “I will use all my skills without being crushed by him Came Riders‘s 50-year legacy”, Shiraishi previously stated. “Through the tragic story of Kotaro Minami and Nobuhiko Akizuki, I will work to open a new chapter in Japanese heroic history.”

The expectations for the restart are high. “With Shiraishi directing, I’m sure it’s going to be a human drama with a very, very deep social message,” Star Nishijima said (via Asahi). “We’re going to make this a series that adults can enjoy and inspire kids to live their lives with a Kamen Rider at heart.” And what kid wouldn’t want to live with a cyborg biker at heart?

Kamen Rider Black Sun debuts this fall. There is no word yet on an official English language release. The new Kamen Rider Black Sun Suits look so fancy and so cool
