Kamen Rider Wizard (仮面ライダーウィザード Kamen Raidā Wizādo?, translated as Masked Rider Wizard) is the twenty-fourth entry of the Kamen Rider Series. Trademarks on the title were filed by Toei in June 21, 2012, and it was officially revealed on June 27, 2012.

It began airing on TV Asahi on September 2, 2012, joining Tokumei Sentai Go-BustersIcon-crosswiki and then Zyuden Sentai KyoryugerIcon-crosswiki in the Super Hero Time lineup. Tsuyoshi Kida is the series' main screenwriter. The catchphrase of the series is "Now, it's showtime!" (さあ、ショ-タイムだ! Saa, shōtaimu da!?).

PlotEdit

"The magic rings, the Wizard Rings. They shine on both hands of the modern mage as he changes despair into hope."
―Narrator[src]

Six months prior to the start of the series, a mysterious ritual held on the day of the solar eclipse took place. Its purpose was to give birth to a group of magical creatures called Phantoms through humans with magical potential called "Gates", by forcibly subjecting them to immense despair. Haruto Soma, the survivor of the ritual, and Koyomi, a mysterious girl who has lost all of her memories, are tasked by the mysterious White Wizard to fight the Phantoms.

Haruto is also given the Wizardriver to become Kamen Rider Wizard in order to prevent the Phantoms from transforming other Gates into Phantoms themselves. Later on, a man named Kosuke Nitoh appears as the ancient wizard Kamen Rider Beast to feed on the Phantom's magical power to survive and becomes both a rival and ally to Haruto. As the two wizards wage their battle against the Phantoms, who are led by the hotheaded Phoenix, the cold and merciless Medusa, the scheming Gremlin, and the enigmatic Wiseman, things are not all as they seem.

The Sorcerer's ApprenticeEdit

Kamen Rider Wizard: The Sorcerer's Apprentice is the S.I.C. Hero Saga story for Wizard.

NotesEdit

  • With 53 episodes in total (including 2 post-finale episodes which serve as the TV special), Kamen Rider Wizard is considered the longest Heisei-era Rider series in history, beating Kamen Rider Agito's record of 51 episodes. If the specials didn't count as episodes, however, then Wizard's episode count record would have been tied with Agito's.
  • In this title series, the Kamen Rider is often called as "Magicians", save for a crossover movie.
