TV Asahi’s Kamen Rider Ex-Aid weekly blog was updated on January 6, 2017 with a special message from Hayato Onozuka, preview images of episode 13, and more.
TV Asahi was surprised at the reaction of the latest episode of Kamen Rider Ex-Aid “Christmas Special: Targeting the Silver X-Mas!” that aired on December 25, 2016.
The last broadcast in 2016 was shocking. Everyone posted lots of comments on the blog, but I understand how everyone feels. This is a response to the voice of all those people… This is a Special Edition message!
Hayato Onozuka (Kiriya Kujo/Kamen Rider Lazer) wrote a short blog post, expressing his gratitude to the staff and viewers.
Surprised by the magnitude of the reactions! I am full of appreciation – A message from Hayato Onozuka
Happy New Year to you all! This is the first blog posted in 2017 It’s Kiriya Kujo! (laugh) Through the impressions from SNS and cast blog from last year’s Christmas broadcast, I am surprised at the magnitude of the response. I was really able to appear in Kamen Rider Ex-Aid. To the staff that gave me the role of Kiriya Kujo, and for all the viewer who loved and supported me, I am full of appreciation!
As just one actor, I think everyone’s support and opinions are so valuable.
Also, the second chapter of Ex-Aid that starts this week will further bring waves of development. Was Kiriya Kujo’s secrets of Kuroto Dan left behind with his arrow? Can you win against Level X? Parad’s future is also worrisome! I think I will dig deeply and keep an eye on it. Please also enjoy Chapter 2. Thank you again!
