There is something about saying the phrase Bakishin Riser Ryu that gives off an invigorating feel. Originally created as a hero to bring happiness to the children affected by 2011's earthquake, Bakishin Riser Ryu will finally get his own toku (Short for tokusatsu.) series that will premier on July 10.
Based on what I have picked up from the show's official site, Ryu's goal is to protect Japan from a great evil that has awakened during the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake. Prior to this event, Ryu has been around to keep tabs on this evil since ancient times. He is also a hero that belongs to the Miyagi region of Japan.
Takayuki Miyauchi the man behind the opening theme of Bioman and Kamen Rider Black RX will sing the opening theme for the series, and the residents of Miyagi can expect a special edition episode to appear on the TBC Network in their area during the Watchin! Miyagi news program on July 3rd
Since the purpose of this series is to brighten the lives of children affected by the earthquake, I am going to assume that Bakishin Riser Ryu is going to be an educational toku series that will teach kids about the ways of overcoming natural disasters. However, I expect that Bakishin Riser Ryu is going to have some entertaining fight sequences, since the hero's design features a Kamen Rider-like design -- to be more specific, one similar to the Rider designs from Kamen Rider Hibiki.
Be sure to check out Ryu's back-story in the video after the jump. Though keep in mind that it is a 16 minute long video that is told in the style of a children's storybook.
