Wow!

16th HEISEI KAMEN RIDER: Kamen Rider Drive

The copyright for the 16th Heisei Kamen Rider has been registered. The new Rider's name is Kamen Rider Drive and will replace Kamen Rider Gaim in TV Asahi's Super Hero Time block in the future.

What's interesting is that the series was registered a month earlier than the usual copyright registration.

Gantz's Sato Helms Live-Action Film of Zombie Manga 'I Am a Hero'

Popular actor Yo Oizumi (Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, Brave Story, Gegege no Kitarō, A Bolt from the Blue) will star in a live-action film adaptation of Kengo Hanazawa's best-selling zombie manga I Am a Hero. Oizumi will play the lead character Hideo Suzuki, and Shinsuke Sato (Gantz, Library War, Oblivion Island: Haruka and the Magic Mirror, Princess Blade) will direct the "A-grade survival panic horror" movie. The cast also includes up-and-coming actress Kasumi Arimura (Ghibli's When Marnie Was There, Amachan, Hagane no Onna, Clover, Judge) and Masami Nagasawa (John Woo's The Crossing, From Up On Poppy Hill, Detroit Metal City, Kiyoku Yawaku).

In the original manga, Hideo is an aspiring manga creator who once struggled with discontent with his assistant artist job and his relationship with his girlfriend — until people started turning into undead "ZQN" creatures overnight. After he is attacked by his ZQN virus-infected girlfriend "Tekko," Hideo flees the overrun Tokyo metropolis with the shotgun he happens to own as a hobby. He travels with Hiromi, a high school girl whom he meets by chance, and they face the desperate situation with the help of a nurse named Yabu at a shopping mall.
