Yusuke Yamamoto debuted as Tsurugi Kamishiro/Kamen Rider Sasword in Kamen Rider Kabuto. On March 21, 2017, his agency Evergreen Entertainment has ended his contract.
The office posted a notice on their website entitled “Notice on Yusuke Yamamoto”. It states he was warned several times of violating his contract. The exact violations have not been made public.
Evergreen Entertainment stated they have worked hard to promote Yamamoto since his debut 11 years ago. However, they blamed their own lack of leadership and are sorry to have to let him go.
In 2005, Yamamoto won the Semi-Grand Prix in the Junon Super Boy Contest. He made his debut on Kamen Rider Kabuto in 2006. He encounted a scandal in 2015 when a tabloid revealed he had a “one-night stand with a beautiful woman”. He later apologized on his blog.
Fans on Twitter were surprised and puzzled at the sudden end of the contract.
Evergreen Entertainment also employs Taiko Katono (Kamen Rider Chaser of Kamen Rider Drive).
