Kouhei Takeda (武田航平) recently announced on his Line blog that he was interviewed by Onitsuka Tiger’s online magazine. He also had the opportunity to model apparel for the interview.
In his blog, Takeda stated there was a fashionable atmosphere around him, including in the photographer and director. He said it was a very fun shooting and he plans to purchase Onitsuka Tiger apparel in the future.
Regarding Kamen Rider Build, Takeda portrays Kazumi Sawatari/Kamen Rider Grease (and previously Otoya Kurenai in Kamen Rider Kiva and Kamen Rider Decade). He stated that he is busy filming the show “pretty much every day,” but afterwards, he enjoys dinner with his cast mates. Many are older than him, while there are some still in their early teens. The atmosphere “is like an after-school club.”
Besides from filming, he is busy caring for his Pomeranian puppy Kibi. The two have shared such a close bond that Takeda can’t “really go out for drinks very often anymore (laughs).”
The feature of Kouhei Takeda will continue in Onitsuka Tiger’s June LOOK.2 with details about his personality, past roles, and what’s in store for the future.
The interview is available in English on the Onitsuka Tiger Magazine website.
