A cast event was recently held between the casts of the upcoming Kamen Rider Build and Lupinranger VS Patranger film.
Masanobu Katsumura (勝村政信) portrays Joji Kukubo, the Governor of Touto, was surprised when he received the offer. He wondered “Is it OK to become a Rider? I talked to the Director about my transformation pose.” He had regrets that in his older age, he didn’t have a transformation pose.
Katsumura stated that he has followed the Kamen Rider since it initially debuted. To perform in Kamen Rider “seems like a dream.”
Atsuhiro Inukai (犬飼貴丈), who portrays the main protagonist Sento Kiryu/Kamen Rider Build, also discussed his evolution over the series. He also had insecurities about his transformation pose at first and was worried he didn’t look good.
Eiji Akaso (赤楚衛二), who plays Ryuga Banjo/Kamen Rider Cross-Z, stated that at first, he was very embarassed when he had to transform. He had to re-do the posing at the beginning before he got the hang of it.
Kouhei Takeda (武田航平) plays Kazumi Sawatari/Kamen Rider Grease. He commented that he always arrives early every morning. He’s good at waking up early and isn’t late. He joined during the second chapter, so he was able to watch the growth of Kiryu and Banjo.
Yuki Ochi (越智友己) discussed his role as Nariaki Utsumi, who transforms into Kamen Rider MadRogue, felt his dreams to transform finally came true. He really enjoys shooting now. Over the past year, he feels that his bonds with the cast have grown. He believes now he can be a someone who they can come to to discuss anything.
