Cult TV Essentials: Kamen Rider Ghost

Kamen Rider Ghost was the 26th Kamen Rider television show and focused on a young man named Takeru Tenkūji. Tenkūji’s father was a ghost hunter who had died 10 years previous to the shows opening.

Shockingly for an opening episode, Tenkūji is killed at the hands of an evil monster known as a Gamma while trying to protect his childhood friend Akari Tsukimura from an attack.

A mysterious hermit brings Tenkūji back to life and bestows upon him the Ghost Driver transformation belt and an Eyecon, an orb-shaped device which can see ghostly creatures like spirits of dead creatures, Gamma, and other Kamen Riders.

The hermit tells Tenkūji 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.

Tenkūji is assisted by the Buddhist monk Onari, who previously supported his father as a ghost hunter, and Akari, the Scully to his Mulder – 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, 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.

The Kamen Riders of Kamen Rider Ghost use Eyecons to transform and to summon the hooded jacket-like spirits called Hoodie Ghosts – like the spirits of historical figures such as Miyamoto Musashi, Thomas Edison, and Isaac Newton to grant them new powers!
