【特報第二弾】仮面ライダーBLACK SUN【2022年10月28日(金)0:00配信決定】
The official trailer for Kamen Rider Black Sun.

The trailer teases that Kamen Rider Black Sun’s story is set in a world where monsters and humans live side-by-side, but they definitely don’t appear to get along! As monsters disguised as humans start to go out of control and hurt people the need for superheroes becomes evident. That’s where our hero Kamen Rider Black Sun will have to step in to save the day!

What is the plot of Kamen Rider Black Sun?

The story begins when the King of Creation, the pinnacle of monsters, dies and elects a “King of the Century” to inherit his power. In the year 2022, half a century has passed since the nation declared the coexistence between humans and monsters.

However, although monsters are allowed to live among humans the ones, who are living in human form, are often oppressed and repeatedly end up clashing with prejudiced humans. As such incidents become more frequent tensions start to rise between the humans and monsters and violent outbreaks become an everyday occurrence.

As the chasm between humans and monsters continues to widen, a girl, who dreams of harmony between the two races, meets a man, who just might change everything.
