Three characters from Kamen Rider Fourze will be reunited in the upcoming Blach film. Sota Fukushi (福士蒼汰) played Gentaro Kisaragi/Kamen Rider Fourze and takes on the lead role of Ichigo Kurosaki in Bleach. Ryo Yoshizawa (吉沢亮) portrayed Ryusei Sakuta/Kamen Rider Meteor and will play Uryu Ishida in the upcoming film.
