Kantarou has had the 6th sense to see demons for as long as he can remember, and has become friends with them, but also has the job of “yokai busting”. With his tengu and his kitsune, they solve mysteries, and help the yokai situation in Japan. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)

The anime premiered on the Filipino-language anime channel HEROtv on April 2007, and it was also aired on the defunct terrestrial channel Qtv Channel 11, which was GMA Channel 07’s sister channel, a few months later.

The show’s airing date & time has not been announced, but it is expected to replace the first season of Bakuman.

The Kamen Riders, known as Oni, battle man-eating beasts called Makamou with “pure sound”. One of the Oni, a man named Hibiki, ends up having a “teacher-and-apprentice”-like relationship with Asumu Adachi. A young boy unsure of himself and is at a crossroads in his life as he transitions to high school, Asumu learns to be an adult through watching Hibiki and the other Oni as they all train together to hone their skills in fighting the Makamou and the homunculi aiding them. However, the sudden raise of Makamou numbers proves to be a prelude to an upcoming calamity. (Synopsis from Wikipedia)

The tokusatsu series first premiered on terrestrial network TV5 on its defunct primetime anime block “TV5 AniMEGA” on February 2009.

The series is set to premiere on the channel on the first week of June.
