Comment by Hideaki Tsukada
"Have you ever felt a disconnect when a favorite work is remade in a different medium? “The hero wouldn’t say something like that…” “The tempo is off…” “We already know the story, there’s no need to explain at great length…” But there was none of that disconnect when live action drama Kamen Rider W was followed by the manga, FUUTO PI. The manga FUUTO PI is an official sequel, telling the next chapters of the W story. It was stimulating because the story was new, but there was also a refreshingly new technical aspect. Even as I supervised the project, I was astonished a how well scriptwriter Riku Sanjo was able to design a manga that could be read with the same breathless excitement that was generated by watching the live action W drama. This can be attributed to Sanjo’s stance of “always imagining from the fan’s perspective.” That’s why readers were able to relish the manga stories set in the windy city of FUUTO without any disconnect.
And now the story of FUUTO morphs into yet another form as an animated series. It’s a milestone that’s emphasized by the lyrics of the Cyclone Effect soundtrack, “Gaining strength and power, the wind takes us to the next stage.” The group of talented animation creators working on this project are the “wind.” Always imagining from the fan’s perspective, we’ll take you to the “total satisfaction” stage!
Keep an eye out for the FUUTO PI animated series, the next evolution of Kamen Rider W, coming your way in 2022!"
Similar to Kamen Rider BLACK SUN, Fuuto PI is planned to be released 2022. But in Summer.
