    Was the question about his father and the shameless plugging really necessary?

      Well not really, but we did spend a moment actually booking him for the event. Unfortunately he was midshoot for Agent X. He’s gone on to speak with us about wanting to give more in terms of appearances and information to the toku community including insight on the things that have made him the actor he is today.

      His father was monumental in his development as a martial artist, in fact showing up as someone who helped coordinate fight sequences in Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero and Kakuranger (even fighting with Kane in Kakuranger).

        You’d figure there’d be better ways to ask him about his father and their work together instead of straight up “hey i heard you and your dad aren’t talking anymore. what’s up?”

        And that’s cool that he wants to do all that for the toku community, but ya know, that’s like a conversation off record. I dunno. It was an okay interview. Just wished could’ve been better. Nice job, tho.

          Hey, I get your concern for his privacy but this was a text interview where we did ask him if that was too personal. He happily coordinated that this was the response he wanted to put out there about the situation. We take into account all things when respectfully portraying an icon such as Mr. Kosugi. We’re more than extremely grateful he gave us such insight into his life and inspirations.
