She will play the character Misaki Nadeshiko/Kamen Rider Nadeshiko, named after the winning Japan women’s soccer team Nadeshiko Japan.
While Mano’s releases as an idol have been somewhat slow lately it seems that her acting career is going really well, and with this announcement that she will be among the cast for a Kamen Rider movie it seems that it will get even better.
For those who might not be aware Kamen Rider is an amazingly popular series starting back in 1971 which features masked heroes as the main protagonists, and while I have heard quite a lot about them I wouldn’t have guessed that one day we would see an H!P member become one of the Kamen Riders since not many females have become Kamen Riders.
As for Mano’s costume it seems that she will have a blue and silver colored Kamen outfit so fans will easily be able to recognize her from among the other actors (she’s also holding the “fourze” which will probably be a big part of the movie), and while we only have two pictures of her from the set it seems that this will be an amazing movie to check out once it’s released due to the popularity of the Kamen Riders series as well as Mano’s appearance.
Hopefully everyone can check it out once it’s released in December!
The movie will premiere on 12/10.
