eLast week Kamen Rider fans celebrated a week-long event for the Tokusatsu franchise with Heisei Week 2. This digital event is the sequel to last year's event, where we premiered Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER film with the help of Shout! Factory and Nerdist, along with director James Gunn tweeting out how he loves that Kamen Rider was trending. Heisei Week 2 was filled with exciting live streams, contests, exclusive merch, and we're excited to recap all the fun that took place during this event.
Heisei Week 2 kicked things off with the kickoff panel, where both Team Kamen Rider members David C. and A.J. V. reviewed the schedule during the week. They shared the site layout at Bluefinbrands.com announcing limited time items that were available, such as panda plushies, shirts, and Team Kamen Rider jerseys; which fans have been vocal about for quite some time.
