AKB48’s Sakiko Matsui and Rino Sashihara joined TV Asahi’s Dinner Party program. The topic of Kamen Rider was discussed, in particular, popular actors Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O), Masaki Suda (Kamen Rider W), and Sota Fukushi (Kamen Rider Fourze).
Matsui, who also likes the Kamen Rider series, commented “Some say I only care about the handsome men, but of course, Kamen Rider is cool.” She was also happy to see a photo of Fukushi.
Riku Sanjo, who helped write screenplays for shows like Kamen Rider Fourze, spoke about choosing handsome actors for the series. “The coolest person who best represents the current era is selected.” When Director Koichi Sakamoto said he participated in Fukushi’s audition, Sashihara couldn’t hide the surprise in her eyes.
Sashihara asked about Masaki Suda’s auditions for Kamen Rider W. Sanjo immediately stated “Masaki Suda was sparkling.”
Matsui asked a unique question regarding auditions, “Do you have the actors perform a transformation pose?” Sanjo responded “Usually, the transformation pose hasn’t been decided yet.” But, the Heisei Riders will have to loudly say “Henshin”, which will always vary depending on the current time period.
