Okay, let’s see if we can get through this without gagging. The Kamen Rider pop idol group, Kamen Rider GIRLS has announced the release of their newest single, and as a “special bonus”, the wrestler and self-proclaimed Kamen Rider fan Hiroshi Takahashi will appear in the music video along with Kamen Rider V3. MY sincerest condolences to Kamen Rider V3.
The new single will be a rock cover of the classic theme song, “Tatakae! Kamen Rider V3”, originally performed by Miyauchi Hiroshi, who played Kamen Rider V3/Kazami Shiro. In the video, Takahashi will fight alongside Kamen Rider V3 and the GIRLS against Destron.
The shoot took place yesterday (June 17th), and Takahashi expressed how much of a dream come true it was for him to star in the video and fight alongside Kamen Rider V3.
Aside from this single, the Kamen Rider GIRLS will make covers for other Rider theme songs, which they will release in an album due out in a Cd and CD+DVD (with free poster) release on August 8th. I’ll admit that their first single, the cover of the original Kamen Rider theme, wasn’t half bad. But this just seems like a disaster waiting to happen.
