Masaru Nagai Returns to Super Sentai Series For First Time in 20 Years
Masaru Nagai first appeared as Tatsuya Asami/TimeRed in Mirai Sentai Timeranger. It was recently announced that he would return to the series in the currently ongoing Super Sentai show Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger.
Nagai portrays Master Black, who trained Bamba/Ryusoul Black. Master Black watched over Bamba’s sword fighting since he was a child and also encouraged him. Now the question is how will Master Black and Bamba react after reuniting after such a long absence. Viewers will also learn how he’s currently involved with the Ryusoulger team.
Regarding the role, Nagi expressed that he was moved to perform again in the series after 20 years. He was amazed at how some of the staff, who were assistants, now had advanced. He was able to catch up with many of the same staff he worked with during Timeranger.
In preparation for the role, Nagai stated that he practiced doing flips on a trampoline, plus he sword trained, which was something he hadn’t done in 20 years.
Nagai grew up watching Super Sentai, and how his son has begun watching the show. His son knows that his father was a Timeranger, but was still impressed when he saw a photo of his father with the Ryusoulger cast.
