Kamen Rider Build (仮面ライダービルド Kamen Raidā Birudo) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama in Toei Company's Kamen Rider Series. It is the nineteenth series in the Heisei period run and the twenty-eighth series overall. The series started on September 3rd, 2017, joining Uchu Sentai KyurangerIcon-crosswiki in the Super Hero Time line-up after the finale of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid.

The tagline of the series is, “The laws of victory have been decided!” One of the underlying motifs of this season is science and scientific principles.


"It has been 10 years since Pandora Box was discovered on Mars and caused the Skywall tragedy. Our country was divided into Touto, Seito and Hokuto, resulting in untold chaos."

10 years ago, the “Pandora Box” was found on Mars. On Earth, it created walls that divided Japan into Touto (Eastern Capital), Hokuto (Northern Capital) and Seito (Western Capital) and brought along the Smash, unidentified lifeforms that attack people.

Sento Kiryu, a prodigy physicist, transforms into Kamen Rider Build to fight the Smash.

The Touto government requests his help in deciphering the mystery behind the Pandora Box and the Smash. There is one mystery not even Sento can solve: his own past. The only memory he has left of more than 20 years is the existence of a sinister figure called Night Rogue. There is one man who holds the key to Sento’s memories: A prison escapee by the name of Ryuga Banjo, who adamantly denies committing the murder he is accused of. Misora Isurugi, who works with Sento, has the ability to purify the harmful components the Smash are made of.

Sento transforms into Kamen Rider Build in order to uncover the mystery surrounding the Pandora Box, the Smash and his amnesia.

Suit actors


  • This series will run through 2018, the 80th anniversary of Shotaro Ishinomori's birth.
  • This series will be the final Rider series to have a full televised run in the Heisei Era; the series after Build will be in a similar position to Kamen Rider Black RX in that it will run during the transition of reigning emperors. Emperor Akihito will abdicate the throne in April 30, 2019[8] to his son Prince Naruhito, thus beginning a new era of Japan.
  • With this series, Kamen Rider's timeslot changes from 8am to 9am starting in October.
  • This Kamen Rider series shares some similar elements with its first Super Hero Time partner, Uchu Sentai Kyuranger.
    • Both take place in separate universes from their respective franchises.
      • Both universes are dystopian (Jark Matter's conquest of Earth along with the entire universe for Kyuranger and the Sky Wall Disaster and Japan's division for Build).
      • The heroes from both series visited their respective franchises' main universes and they met and fought alongside some of their predecessors who live there.
      • Additionally, while Kamen Rider Decade explored the concept of alternate universes and continuities, Build is the first Kamen Rider season to fully exist in a unique, independent universe that is not based on a past Kamen Rider season.
    • The main villains of both series are heads of government (In Kyuranger's case Don Armage proclaimed himself the Shogun of the Universe [including the Earth] after conquering it prior to the beginning of the series, while in Build's case since the end of episode 10, Gentoku Himuro/Night Rogue is the Acting Prime Minister of Touto due to the hospitalization of his father).
    • Both series' collectibles have a sliding gimmick prior to their usage for transformation.
  • This is the first series since:
    • Kamen Rider Wizard to premiere in September.
    • Kamen Rider Fourze to have a female vocalist sing its opening theme.
    • Entire Kamen Rider history to have a non-Native Japanese singer provide vocals for its opening theme.
    • Kamen Rider Decade to use only "Form" in naming the Rider's forms instead of using a unique term like Combo, States, etc.
  • In keeping with the science motif, a few of the equations seen in the show are based on math, scientific theories or scientific principles. For example, the last equation seen in the opening intro right next to Kamen Rider Build is Boltzmann's entropy formula.
