Kamen Rider ZI-O is close to its series finale, but that doesn’t mean the special guests are stopping. It was revealed that Taiko Katono (上遠野太洸) would reprise his role as Mashin Chaser/Chase from Kamen Rider Drive. It is the first time he will reprise the role in four years.
Mashin Chaser is a Roidmude who sought to destroy humanity. He has the same powers of a Kamen Rider but is known as being the “Grim Reaper,” who destroys Roidmude. He was a cool and quiet character, but popular among fans.
Katono commented: “Nice to meet you all, it’s been a while. It’s Taiko Katono. I played the role of Chase in Kamen Rider Drive. I’m very grateful to be involved in the Rider scene again. Even while shooting, I was excited by the words of the staff. I will be resurrected as Chase in Kamen Rider ZI-O, which will be the last Rider (series) of Heisei. I hope it will add to the excitement of the work. Please enjoy the world of Kamen Rider ZI-O to the end!”
Machin Chaser will appear in episodes 47 and 48 of Kamen Rider ZI-O starting on August 11th.
