Masashi Ikeda recently shared his thoughts on joining the cast of King-Ohger in an interview with Oricon News:
The moment I heard that I was accepted, I was so happy! Surprised! I was stunned and didn’t really feel it. As time went by, I gradually began to feel it. Then, finally, my heart was filled with a sense of elation and anticipation. I was a big fan of Kamen Rider 555 when I was little. I loved watching it so much that I even collected all the transformation belts and other items. As for Super Sentai, I watched Avataro Sentai DonBrothers. I remember how wonderful everyone looked as heroes, and I felt a sense of responsibility that I was going to play such a hero. And since we were from the same office, I got to hear stories from Kohaku Shida, who had appeared in DonBrothers, and she helped me practice my lines. I had a lot of fun practicing with her, and I learned a lot.
Since Jeremie is a “storyteller,” I think he loves to talk and joke around. But there is a cuteness and innocence in him. He is the most pacifistic character of all, hating conflict. Jeremie is a very relaxed person and enjoys talking with people, so I always want to show that kind of charm. And the costume is cool too! When I put on this costume, I get really excited. I have always loved white, and I wear it a lot in my personal clothes, so I am happy to be able to wear this outfit. I wear it every day, thinking, “I never thought I would have a chance to wear such a prince-like costume in my life!” I wear it every day (laughs).
I still have the strange feeling that I am doing the narration in anime and dramas that I usually watch. From now on, I hope that you will listen to my narration thinking, ‘This narration is also Jeremie’s voice!’
I am full of surprised every day (laughs). First of all, I was surprised to shoot in green backgrounds for the first time, and I was also surprised by the action scenes, so I am experiencing new sensations every day. And above all, I was surprised by my own transformation… Everything was a series of “firsts” for me, and I am constantly impressed. When I filmed the transformation scene for the first time, I tried my best to transform while saying to myself, “I am a hero” (laughs). I haven’t seen the finished film yet, so I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I was happy to finally be able to transform into the hero I had dreamed of.
The cast are all very friendly and really kind. I was a little anxious because I was joining during the middle of filming, but everyone talked to me and was very friendly, which made me very happy. I hope to get to know them better and better from now on.
I will do my best for a year to make Ohsama Sentai King-Ohger a wonderful work, and to make Jeremy a character loved by everyone. Please look forward to seeing how Jeremie will inspire and influence the story in the future!
