[2/10 to 2/16] This Week in Toku Actor Blogs


This Week in Toku Actor Blogs continues to highlight the fun behind-the-scenes lives of tokusatsu actors.

  • Koichi Sakamoto’s Red x Pink (Aka x Pink) premieres February 22nd in Japan. Above, one of its stars, Ayame Misaki, better known for playing Go-buster’s Escape, has been posting some fun Red x Pink costume photos on her Instagram.


  • The official Red x Pink Twitter also posted this photo of the “Making of” DVD release event. Misaki posted more photos of the event on her official blog.
  • Team Baron’s #2 in Kamen Rider Gaim, Gaku Matsuda (below) gushes about his new role in the series. He notes that back in middle school, he used to dance. Though dancing wasn’t initially his passion, he needed it to get into his high school of choice. He developed a passion for dancing because of his teacher, Katou Kurumi , who, sadly, fell ill and passed away in 2010. Matsuda fondly remembers his dance teacher for his cheerfulness and support. Now that Matsuda has a new role as Kamen Rider Knuckle Kurumi (walnut) Arms that bears the same name as his late teacher, he feels as if it’s fate and his teacher is still watching over him. Matsuda’s pose and style is all in tribute to the dance teacher that inspired him.
