Kamen Rider Zero-One’s Satsuki Nakayama Comes Out As Transgender

Kamen Rider Zero-One’s Satsuki Nakayama announces that he identifies as a transgender male and asexual.


Satsuki Nakayama, known for his role in Kamen Rider Zero-One as the Humagear Naki / Kamen Rider Naki, has announced that he identifies as a transgender male and asexual. Nakayama will also be releasing a new photo essay titled “Asexual” releasing on September 17th, 2021.

“I, Satsuki Nakayama, am transgender. I have played female roles in the past, but it’s painful to be perceived as one, so I decided that I would like to act beyond the boundaries of gender.”


Nakayama also reflected on his orientation as asexual, and his response is as followed:

“When people hear I’m transgender, they’ll ask ‘Does that mean you like woman?’ but I want to add that I’m asexual. Asexuality is a sexuality in which a person does not feel romantic or sexual desire for others.

That’s why I decided to publish this photo essay. I would be so happy if you could see me, Satsuki Nakayama, as a human being, beyond the boundaries of gender. I don’t want people to sympathize with me or understand me, but I want them to know me.

“I want to be more than just androgynous. Just let me be a man.”

I think I’ve always been afraid of telling the people around me, because it seemed like I was forcing my ‘ideals’ on them. But I finally made up my mind to live my life in my own way, without covering up my feelings.”
