An image board for Fuuto Tantei / FUUTO PI, the forthcoming web anime adaptation of the sequel manga to the 11th Heisei Kamen Rider series Kamen Rider W, is revealed today. Just like the title page picture of the original manga's first chapter, it depicts the city of Fuuto, the main location of the story, and the protagonist Shotaro Hidari standing overlooking it. And it was colored in purple and green, the theme colors of Kamen Rider W.
It is also confirmed that Studio KAI (Umamusume Pretty Derby Season 2, Super Cub) works on anime production. The message from the studio writes, "We are very honored to be involved in the production of the anime adaptation of the popular manga series 'Fuuto Tantei,' which is a work commemorating the 50th anniversary of Kamen Rider.
