Takeru Tenkūji, whose father was a ghost hunter who died 10 years earlier, dies at the hands of an evil monster known as a Gamma (眼魔, Ganma, Eye Demon) while trying to protect his childhood friend Akari Tsukimura from an attack. A mysterious hermit brings Takeru back to life and bestows upon him the Ghost Driver transformation belt and a Ghost Eyecon (ゴースト眼魂, Gōsuto Aikon, Ghost Eye Soul), an orb-shaped device which can see ghostly creatures like spirits of dead creatures, Gamma, and other Riders. The hermit tells Takeru that he has 99 days to gather 15 additional heroic Eyecons in order to be brought back to life permanently, and must fight the Gamma as Kamen Rider Ghost to obtain them. He is assisted by the Buddhist monk Onari, who previously supported his father as a ghost hunter, and Akari, who tries to find more scientific and logical reasons behind their supernatural encounters. In his way are Makoto Fukami, a mysterious living young man capable of utilizing a Ghost Driver to transform into Kamen Rider Specter (仮面ライダースペクター, Kamen Raidā Supekutā), and the Gamma led by Chikara Saionji, an associate of Takeru's late father, and Alain, the son of the Gamma leader, who later acquires the means to transform into the anti-hero Kamen Rider Necrom (仮面ライダーネクロム, Kamen Raidā Nekuromu).

The Riders of Kamen Rider Ghost use Eyecons to transform and summon the hooded jacket-like spirits called Hoodie Ghosts (パーカーゴースト, Pākā Gōsuto) like the spirits of historical figures such as Miyamoto Musashi, Thomas Edison, and Isaac Newton to grant them new powers.

Casting and production

Shun Nishime is the lead actor of Kamen Rider Ghost, portraying the hero Takeru Tenkūji. At only 17 years old, he is one of the youngest actors to portray the leading role in a Kamen Rider Series, coming after Masaki Suda from Kamen Rider W who was 16 at the time of filming and tying with Takeru Satoh from Kamen Rider Den-O. The rest of the cast includes female lead Hikaru Ohsawa, the rival Kamen Rider Ryosuke Yamamoto, Takayuki Yanagi, Yoshiyuki Morishita, Hayato Isomura, and Naoto Takenaka.

Japanese rock band Kishidan performs the television series' opening theme song. When Kishidan's involvement was announced, lead singer Show Ayanocozey joked that he was very worried about writing the song, but consulted with Takashi Niigaki on how to write songs about ghosts.


Kamen Rider Ghost has his debut appearance as a cameo in Kamen Rider Drive: Surprise Future.
