We have sadly lost an important figure from Kamen Rider history.
Legendary composer Shunsuke Kikuchi who handled the very first Kamen Rider theme song- Let’s Go! Rider Kick– and many other Rider themes throughout the Showa Era has passed away at 89 years old.
Outside the tokusatsu world, Kinkuchi was a prolific artist- working on several anime themes including DragonBall, Doraemon, Getter Robo and countless others.
Our thoughts are with Shunsuke Kikuchis’ friends and family in this difficult time.
