Kamen Rider Decade has the nickname of being the “destroyer of worlds.” In the world of Kamen Rider, it’s rare that one sees jail time for their devious actions. At the same time, the heroes of the show may be allegedly committing crimes while they’re trying to save the world. It’s a complicated issue.
Recently, Kamen Rider Decade’s actor Masahiro Inoue, who portrayed Tsukasa Kadoya, sat down with attorney Nakajima, discussed the issue on Youtube. Since the Kamen Rider series is fictional, Nakajima compared it to the real world and according to Japanese law.
One of the first issues occurred during the first few episodes. Nakajima asked if Decade had a license to drive a motorcycle. From there, Kadoya is transported into the World of Kuuga, where he’s wearing a police officer’s uniform and essentially impersonating a cop. Kadoya also enters the police station at one point while under the disguise and attends a meeting with police administrators without permission. He also participates in the Gurongi investigation.
Inoue listens carefully about what charges could be applied. In just the first two episodes, Kadoya could be charged with five crimes.
Inoue desperately tried to defend Kadoya’s actions by stating “I’m trying to protect the world.” Nakajima seemed to understand, but said that if Kadoya wants to save the world, he also has to remember “following the law is important.”
In just the actions of the first two episodes, if Kadoya was found guilty of all of his crimes, he could face 22 years and 6 months in prison. After hearing this, Inoue was quiet for a moment, and then repeatedly apologized.
The video is almost 18 minutes long but primarily covers only the first two episodes of Kamen Rider Decade.
