In response, Keisuke Tsuchiya, who portayed Kazu the Kirinranger, left a message on his Twitter account.
Mr. Koji Naka, aka Doushi Kaku, has passed away.
Such sudden news has not allowed me to really make sense of it.
I was with Ryo yesterday, so I was able to cope with it but when I am by myself, the tears will not stop.
Rest in peace.

Tsuchiya refers to fellow Dairanger alumni, Keiichi Wada, as Ryo, Wada’s character name from Dairanger.
