Series Synopsis[edit]

The two in one detectives, Hidari Shoutarou and Philip, solve Dopant cases in a city known as Futo. What do they discover as they fight the Dopants as Kamen Rider W?


Narumi Detective Agency[edit]


The office is held inside an old billiards parlor, Kamome (Seagull) Billiards.

The main protagonist. A half-boiled detective with delusions of being hard-boiled. Becomes the left side of Kamen Rider W. Grew up an orphan in Futo, which is probably why he sees Narumi Soukichi as a father figure. He addresses him as "Boss". He runs the Narumi Detective Agency in Soukichi's absence.
Family name means "left" and his given name comes from the creator of Kamen Rider's name, Ishinomori Shoutarou.
  • Philip / Kamen Rider W - Suda Masaki フィリップ / 仮面ライダーW - 菅田将暉
A boy with the Planetary Bookshelves in his mind. At the start of the series, he is a bit detached from the world. Apparently his outfit is in the style of modern Futo wear, but no one else is seen wearing his style of clothing.
He is the right side of W.
Named after Philip Marlowe, the protagonist of detective novels written by Raymond Chandler: The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye, and etc.
The daughter of Narumi Soukichi, the former owner of the Narumi Detective Agency. She considers herself to be the boss of the agency, and often bosses around Shoutarou. She also refers to him as, "half-boiled". Her catchphrase is, "Nobody told me about this!". She often carries around a slipper with kanji on it that she hits people with, referring to her origins growing up in Osaka. Osaka is known for their comedians.

People of Futo[edit]


  • Watcherman - Nasubi ウォッチャマン - なすび
One of Shoutarou's informants.
Another of Shoutarou's informants.
  • Queen - Itano Tomomi (AKB48) クイーン - 板野友美 (AKB48)
With Elizabeth, they know everything that goes on with the youths of Futo.
  • Elizabeth - Kasai Tomomi (AKB48) エリザベス - 河西智美 (AKB48)
Along with Queen, they keep a pulse on all the gossip going around. Their combined names are a reference to Queen Elizabeth.



Futo Police Department[edit]


The young Superintendent appointed to the Futo Police Department's Paranormal Crime Investigation Division (超常犯罪捜査課 Choujou Hanzai Sousaka). He originally becomes Kamen Rider Accel in order to find his family's killer.
Senior detective of the Futo Police Department. Makura is his partner. He is very gullible and tends to fall for the same trick every time. Despite his personality, he is a dedicated officer.
Shoutarou calls him Jin-san. He's often seen with a back massager.
Jinno's partner, a rookie detective. He's a pleasant guy who has doubts over Shotarou's skills and finds his involvement in the Dopant cases unnecessary. He and Shotarou often get into fights when together, and Jinno has to break them up. Extremely impulsive, and often jumps to conclusions when it comes to solving crimes and accuses people of a crime without any solid proof. He is nicknamed Makki by Shotarou.

On the Chronology[edit]

Home Video Release[edit]

W was the first Heisei Rider to have its TV series rereleased in Blu-ray format.

Box 1: July 12, 2013 (2013-07-12)
Box 2: September 13, 2013 (2013-09-13)
Box 3: November 1, 2013 (2013-11-01)

Showed a commercial for the W Blu-ray box during Wizard 36. At the end the line "If you don't see this, you can't talk about W." This is similar to the tagline they have for the Super Hero Taisen Z movie which goes "If you don't see this, you can't talk about super heroes." Might also be narrated by the same guy too.
