Release

Broadcast

  • The series is expected to premiere in July 2022, during the summer anime season.
  • The series has been licensed in North America by Funimation, and will simulcast the series alongside the original Japanese broadcast.[15] This announcement was before Crunchyroll was acquired by Sony from AT&T, thus putting both services and VRV under its control, so it is unclear at this time how the merger of Funimation and Crunchyroll will affect where it will stream.[16]

Notes

  • While several animated media has been produced for the Kamen Rider franchise in the past, Fuuto PI is the first ever to be mainstream and receive the full-length anime treatment while being traditionally based on a previously existing source material, such as a weekly publicized manga series.
