Miki Fujimoto returns to the acting scene in new Kamen Rider movie

Former Hello!Project idol Miki Fujimoto will be appearing in the latest Kamen Rider movie! Titled Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: True Ending this will be Miki’s first acting role this decade, her last being the 2009 film “Long Caravan” where she costarred with former EXILE performer MATSU.

Since graduating from Hello!Project and getting married to comedian Tomoharu Shoji, Miki focused on being an MC, model and tarento. She gave birth to her first child in March 2012, and had a second child in August 2015.

In the film Miki will play the role of Akemi Hoshi, mother to Makoda Hoshi. Makoda is a young girl who suffers from a rare illness, as a result she needs to get treatments daily at the hospital. She is soon targeted by the evil villain Kamen Rider Fuma, who uses her in his plot to transfer humans into virtual reality. Makoda is held hostage and it’s up the “CR Riders” to rescue her. Miki commented that playing this role came naturally to her, as she’s a mother herself. She described Akemi as a caring and loving character who would do anything to help her daughter, and is definitely someone you will find yourself rooting for.

Kamen Rider Ex-Aid: True Ending” will hit Japanese theaters on August 5th. Watch the latest trailer below!

      There is nothing more dramatic than watching giant, motorcycle-riding insects fight each other.

        is it good? recent kamen rider feel repetitive since 000z back in 2011……the main character always spamming skill unlike the good old day when they need to fight for survival

          a few kamen rider after ooo has a good story that I like, as long as you bear to watch the first 10 episode. the first 10 episode is like an introduction, and the story is getting better after that
          my best recommendation for series after ooo is gaim and ex-aid. you might want to give it a try

          Gaim (2013-2014) is about fighting for survival. It’s not perfect but it’s a lot better than many of the superheroes franchise and blockbusters we are getting.

          As The Glorio Blog says in their Episode 14 review, “Really, this installment of Gaim was superlative entertainment
          in every way. It proved the show has big plans and deep layered plots,
          that it can make us care about the characters and that it isn’t afraid
          to get nasty with them to achieve its ends. Gaim isn’t just a great Kamen Rider show now, or even a great toku show; it’s just great television, period, and a show that everyone should be watching.”

          The 1st arc (Episode 1 to 11) is kinda silly but it gets dark after that.

          As TV Tropes puts it, “To put it simply, at around the halfway point, Gaim is Kamen Rider meets Puella Magi Madoka Magica meets Shin Megami Tensei meets Saving Private Ryan meets The Killing meets The Wire meets PG-rated Game of Thrones. It’s just as dark and emotionally draining as it sounds. You will feel like you have nothing to live for by the end.”

          How Your View of Kamen Rider Gaim Changes

          Episode 2: Silly. Protagonist is showing off his new found powers.

          Episode 14: Game changer. Shit gets real.
