The cast of the latest Ultraman show share unique experience at fan event.
Tsuruno Takeshi, who played Shin Asuka/Ultraman Dyna, in the 1997 Ultraman TV series, appeared with the rest of the Ultraman Orb the Origin Saga cast at an event held in Tokyo’s Sunshine City on December 26th.
Saki Fukuda, who plays the queen of the royal planet of Kanon in the series, revealed that she shook hands with “Dyna” himself, Tsuruno Taskeshi, when she was in elementary school, an experience that always left an impression on her. Tsuruno Takeshi remarked that he’s heard of many tokusatsu stars shaking hands with their costumed heroes as children but never imagined he would be in a show with someone who shook hands with Dyna as a child.
Ultraman Orb the Origin Saga is a 12-episode series airing exclusively on Amazon Prime Video and tells the history of Gai and Juggler, the hero and villain from Ultraman Orb. The show will recount their history and explore how the two went from friends to deadly enemies in the recently concluded Ultraman Orb TV series.
