Toei has announced a new release date for the Toei Manga Matsuri event. The road show will now be on August 14.
The event initially started in 1967 and was meant to continue in 2020. The event was originally scheduled to release in April 2020, but was postponed due to COVID-19.
Advance tickets are on sale now, but Toei warns that if local or government officials request closures, then the festival may be postponed and the new release date canceled again.
At the festival was the reveal of Kamen Rider Den-O: Pretty Den-O, a new story after ten years after the end of the broadcast.
In the show, a young 10-year-old girl named Anna (portrayed by Hinata Takao) runs away from home after a fight with her mother. She becomes the main character. For some reason, Anna is chased by Shocker and jumps on the Denliner. On the train, she meets Momotaros, Kintarous, Urataros, and Ryutaros and travels back to the world of 1989. There, she meets another 10-year-old girl named Melon (portrayed by Tsugu Sasaki).
It was previously revealed that Rina Akiyama, who portrayed Naomi on the original show, would be returning as the character. Also appearing is Isadevil, Kamen Rider 1’s nemesis.
Directing the show is Shojiro Nakazawa, who has had a long history on Kamen Rider and Super Sentai shows. Shoji Yonemura is writing the script, with Yasuko Kobayashi working as the editor.
