The cast talk for the Kamen Rider Ghost RE:BIRTH: Kamen Rider Specter was held on March 28, 2017 in Tokyo. Ryosuke Yamamoto (Makoto Fukami/Kamen Rider Specter), Suit Actor Jun Watanabe, Director Kazuya Kamihoriuchi, and Producer Kazuhiro Takahashi were also in attendance.
RE:BIRTH: Kamen Rider Specter is a spin-off of Kamen Rider Ghost, which broadcast from October 2015 to September 2016. In this V-Cinema, the origins of Kamen Rider Specter are revealed.
Takahashi stated that creating a secondary Rider is difficult, especially if a third is also released and receives more focus. Watanabe spoke of his time as suit actor for Kamen Rider Mach (of Kamen Rider Drive).
The theme of this work was to drive Yamamoto. During the text shoot, he was most concerned at the scene where Makoto counts his sins and cries. The Director said, “You can go ahead, do the act after you have done all of Makoto’s human emotions.” I was told I looked troubled, but that all came out as Makoto.
But he was told “The life that Makoto led cannot be cleansed with tears alone. So I thought I would like to see if you can see the result of the test shoots.” Takahashi said, “It’s a nice scene where Yamamoto is so expressive.”
At the end of the event, Yamamoto said “I feel like I have exhausted myself as a Kamen Rider in this work. Thank you. I will do my best to fly even more.”
Kamen Rider Ghost RE:BIRTH: Kamen Rider Specter will be released on blu-ray and DVD on April 19, 2017.
