We all remember the first single that the Kamen Rider GIRLS made earlier this year for the movie OOO Den-O All Rider: Let’s Go Kamen Rider!, don’t we? I remember just how many of you absolutely loved the music video for the song “Let’s Go Rider Kick 2011”. 😛 Nothing quite like taking a classic beloved theme song and turning it into a bubblegum pop eyesore. So that leads us to beg the question: What if someone else had made the music video for the single, perhaps with scenes from all the series edited together in an awesome and mind-blowing way? Would that have been enough to redeem the song itself? Well, why don’t you watch for yourselves and see:
Just one word can describe this: SUBARASHI!

Here’s the cover art for the new single from the Kamen Rider GIRLS, “Kamen Rider V3”:
Is it just me, or does Kamen Rider v3 look like he’s asking himself “Why did I agree to do this?”
Aside from this, the Kamen Rider GIRLS will also be singing covers to other popular Rider theme songs. The single drops August 8th, and will be available in CD Only and CD+DVD Editions. The DVD includes the music video for the single, which stars the GIRLS, V3 himself, and professional wrestler and avid Kamen Rider fan Hiroshi Tanahashi.
Here’s a preview for the Kamen Rider GIRLS’ latest single, their cover of the Kamen Rider V3 theme song. Let’s listen in before we make any judgements:
It started out pretty well, very good build-up, and then they started to sing….
I’ll let you be the judge. This latest single comes out August 8th, along with a new album where they cover other famous Kamen Rider theme songs.

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.
