Super Sentai Alums React to the Death of Dairanger’s Tatsuya Nomi


Former Super Sentai actors and actresses share their condolences on the passing of Dairanger‘s Tatsuya Nomi.

Yesterday, the death of Tatsuya Nomi, who portrayed Daigo/Shishiranger in Gosei Sentai Dairanger, affected many in the tokusatsu community. Several Super Sentai alums shared their reactions on social media.

Ei Hamura (Shoji/TenmaRanger of Dairanger) shared on his bar’s blog:

Thank you for reading the Sousei no Tenma blog.

This is Hamura.
We are very grateful to everyone who visits us daily.

Well, as some of you know, an ally of mine passed away.

I was surprised myself, upset and at loss of what to do.

I thought that the shop today should be closed, but I would like to do something. I think.

Perhaps it will not be possible for me to serve customers as usual today.

However, this started from the idea of a gathering place for the six stars.

So I will open!

I may be told off for mentioning personal matters on the bar’s blog but please pretend you didn’t see this one time.

I’m sorry.

Keisuke Tsuchiya (Kazu/KirinRanger of Dairanger) shared his sadness on Twitter:

This is too hard, too painful…
The tears are overflowing.

The fun and cheerful image of Tatsuya is not leaving my head.

Please rest in peace.
We pray for your happiness in the next world.

Michiko Makino (Hikaru Katsuragi/Pink Five of Choudenshi Bioman) shared images of her with Tatsuya:

Tatsuya Nomi, you were my elder on stage, but other than that you were a friendly little brother to me. That friendly smile, gentle smile, or your face bursting into laughter. I’ll never forget them…

Inaba Kazu (Takeru/Red Mask of Hikari Sentai Maskman) spoke about Tatsuya on his Twitter:

Mr. Nomi, this is not right.
I pray for your soul from the bottom of my heart.

Kozo Kusakari (Kenta/Black Mask of Maskman) also shared his condolences:

Tatsuya Nomi.
I pray for your soul from the bottom of my heart.

Tetsu Inada (voice actor of Doggie Kruger in Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger) had a special drink at Hamura’s bar in honor of Tatsuya:

Kenta Satou (Riki Honoo/Red Turbo of Kousoku Sentai Turboranger) briefly shared his thoughts on the shocking news:

The sudden news of a death…
I can’t put it into words.

Kohei Yamamoto (Kouta Bito/HurricaneYellow of Ninpu Sentai Hurricaneger) shared his reaction:

I am shocked at the realization of the news of (his) death through everyone’s reactions.

We worked together in Hurricaneger and for a time also shared the same agency.

Tatsuya Nomi, I sincerely pray for your soul.

Lastly, Nao Nagasawa (Nanami Nono/HurricaneBlue of Hurricaneger) shared her thoughts on Twitter:

Mr. Nomi..
We were together in Hurricaneger. I cannot believe your unexpected death.
I pray for your happiness in the next world.
