Comment from Yosuke Kabashima (Director)

If "Futo Detectives" were to be animated, I really wanted to be the director. When I heard that "Kamen Rider W" would be cartoonized as "Futo Detectives", I strongly thought and wished. The "Kamen Rider" series, including "Kamen Rider W," has always saved me when I was in trouble in my life. That's why I really wanted to give back the gratitude with my own hands. Fortunately, I was given the opportunity this time. Based on my love and feelings for my work, I would like to do my best to make it. We intend to deliver the atmosphere of "W" as a work that reproduces it as it is. Please look forward to it!
