So Okuno (Sougo Tokiwa / Kamen Rider Zi-O)
Guess who’s back! I’m so honored to come back to where I started acting and to play Sougo again! I was really touched to meet all of the staff again. When I play Sougo, it’s always fun and refreshing because I can live his feelings and experiences. I get to be the legend Rider this time all thanks to Director Tasaki. Please enjoy the movie!
Furuya Takahashi (Aruto Hiden / Kamen Rider Zero-One)
I was delighted when I first heard about this Kamen Rider/Super Sentai double anniversary movie. When I started in Kamen Rider Zero-One, I said that I would work hard in order to play Aruto Hiden with everyone again, but I didn’t think this day would come so soon. It’s been about half a year since I played Aruto, so it was emotional for me. Aruto is such a great character who can lighten the mood or break the tension with his gags. He’ll just take you at your word about anything, and he can communicate well.
In this movie, you’ll get to see me fight as Zero-One alongside Saber and the Shinkenger. I’m very grateful as an actor and enjoyed challenging myself on-site and in the recording studio. I still have a lot of room to grow, but Zero-One’s jumping back in as a legend Rider! See me fight alongside other past heroes!
Shogo Suzuki (Chiaki Tani / Shinken Green)
I’m so happy to be invited to be in this Kamen Rider/Super Sentai double anniversary movie. It’s great to be back. I’m just so, so happy to be with the current heroes and the heroes I used to watch. My heart can’t take how awesome it is to be with all these heroes, and I have nothing but gratitude to get to play Chiaki Tani again over ten years later. I got to join the ranks of my beloved heroes twelve years ago. I was happy then, but this is like the best present ever.
It wasn’t for long, but it was so much fun getting into costume, pulling out the item I used back then, working with the same staff and JAE [Japan Action Enterprise] people as before. There’s so much hero history in this movie that your breath will catch at various points. I think this movie will reach the hearts of everyone watching it. Carry your love of heroes in your hearts with you into the theater, and enjoy the movie!!
– Reporting to the emperor in a single brushstroke!! Shinken Green, Chiaki Tani! I’m putting my all into my power symbols.
Atomu Mizuishi (Shiguru Oshikiri / Kiramai Blue)
A huge round of applause for Kamen Rider’s 50th anniversary and Super Sentai’s 45th series! I’m very happy to be at this turning point in history with all these heroes gathered.
Definitely keep your eye open for when the Super Sentai teams and Kamen Riders fight together. It’s like living in a dream. It wasn’t that long ago that I played this role [Shiguru], so I didn’t expect to be called back so soon. And to fight alongside heroes I admired, I don’t think anything in this world compares to that!
I’m pumped to represent the Kiramagers in this movie. As one of the hero predecessors now, I plan to cut to my heart’s content as I play “Shiguru Oshikiri”. Look forward to this gallant and popular action star. Let’s sparkle together in front of that screen!
