The pair shared similar opinions from the Hyper Hobby interview, as well as other things.
Q: Pleased to meet the two of you.
S, R: Both laughs.
Q: Why are you two laughing already!?
S: Oh, nothing. We just happened to drink the tea at the same time.
R: Itâ€™s happens a lot, that we do the same things at the same time, right?
S: Our wavelengths are connected.
R: Weâ€™ve even interrupted conversations with the same jokes at the same time!
S: Itâ€™s as if we are waiting for the same oppurtinities. Even Shiho, the actor of Tomoko, says the two of us are alike.
Q: Has your impression of each other changed since the first time you met?
S: I remember thinking that Ryo was really cool when we first met. He was wearing all black that day.
R: Yeah, black. I really like that color. I think the majority of my clothes are black. It just so happens to be that Iâ€™m wearing some of my non-black clothes today.
S: The outfit he was wearing, instantly made me think â€œheâ€™s a cool kind of guy.â€ But I was so wrong.
R: When I first met Sota, I felt refreshed.
S: Really? (Laughs)
R: Yup, it still havenâ€™t changed. I feel refreshed when I see you. I also think you do as you please, you have to much freedom.
S: You really think that?
R: Yeah, itâ€™s almost crazy.
S: Definitely not! Iâ€™m telling you, itâ€™s definitely not like that. Iâ€™m being completely normal!
Q: Itâ€™s strange that you had to repeat yourself there.
R: Exactly! Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m talking about.
S: But if weâ€™re going to talk about freedom, I think Ryo is the same. (Laughs)
R: When tension is high, I think Sota and Gentaro are very similar.
Q: Well then, shall we get started? Sota, how did you take it when Kamen Rider Fourze got its second rider?
S: â€œItâ€™s finally here!â€ (laughs) and â€œHe looks really cool.â€ I like how heâ€™s pompous, heâ€™s almost the opposite of Gentaro. I felt like Fourze would only get more and more interesting from that point. He also fit into the Kamen Rider Clubâ€™s teamwork perfectly.
Q: The character Ryusei Sakuta appeared first in Movie War MEGAMAX as a mysterious transfer student, didnâ€™t he?
S: In the absolute end, he just shows up. (Laughs)
R: He still had a cool debut. (Laughs) But, when we were shooting that scene, I didnâ€™t get to meet anyone. I wanted to meet the rest of the cast.
Q: How was the filming for Ryusei’s TV debut then and where did it start?
R: I don’t really remember if my first filming was for an action scene or not. I remember that Gentaro was around though.
S: Wasn’t it the scene where we were talking to Mr. Ohsugi about school regulations?
R: Oh yeah! The talk about uniforms. I remember thinking, “these actors are really good” and that I couldn’t contain my laughter around Tanaka. (The actor of Chuta Ohsugi)
S: He’s really weird.
R: I also remember the scene in the cafeteria, there was that mysterious idol girl. Ayaka, right?
S: Yeah, I remember thinking “Who is that?” Seriously, I don’t know who she was. (Laughs)
R: As I thought, Gentaro is amazing. He makes friends without realizing it.
S: Is that really called a friend though?
Q: If we look carefully at Ryusei, he has two sides of himself. The real him, and the one he shows to the Kamen Rider Club. But wouldn’t you say he seems happy as of late?
R: At first, when I saw myself on the TV, I thought “am I acting too hard?” I’m supposed to have a blank face half of the time. But now that Ryusei has joined the Kamen Rider Club, I feel like he has slowly warmed up to them. I think it’s going to be more and more. I hope it’s some time soon, that way I can act more naturally.
Q: What do you think about the transformation then?
S: The transformation has actually been bothering me. Can Meteor transform indoors? He needs the satellite beam to transform, will it even reach inside?
R: I thought about that too once. So far, he’s always happened to be outside when he needs to transform. (Laughs) Although, the pose is really cool. I actually stood in front of a mirror for hours just to get the pose right in my head. Even when I felt like my arm was too far out or whatever, the pose was still really cool. I did add a little of my own personality to the pose, and it made it perfect. (Laughs)
Q: Is there anything you’d like to change with Fourze’s transformation?
S: I’d like to see Gentaro press all the switches and then transform, with all the switches activated.
Q: Could you tell us something about the upcoming episodes?
S: In episode 25 and 26, Miu and Shun are graduating.Â Â So it’s definitely going to be some touching episodes. Such as, what is the Kamen Rider Club going to do?
R: We also have some of the seniors coming back, as well as their Zodiart forms. What could be behind that?
S: Ryusei also gets some really good lines. It’s like he’s fully become a part of the Kamen Rider Club. The highlight is of course the prom that will be in the episodes. I think it’s very American inspired. There will be a part where the characters have to decide who they are taking to prom with too.
Q: Â What about episode 27 andÂ onward? Â Is there anything you could mention about that?
R: Well, there’s Meteor’s new States coming up.
S: Fourze is still stronger. (Laughs) Fourze will be getting all kinds of new switches. Look out for that instead. There’s also things going on with the Horoscopes too, so pay attention!
R: Cancer just debuted, so what’s going to happen with Libra? There’s also Aries that Ryusei is looking out for.
S: Gentaro’s past is also coming up very soon. The stuff we are filming at the moment is really interesting, but I can’t say anything at the moment though.
R: Yeah, definitely. “So happy that I got into Fourze.” is what I thought when I saw the script for these episodes.
S: Me too.
R: It’s extremely funny too. (Laughs)
S: So I’m telling you, don’t miss a single episode! Keep on watching and supporting Fourze! We’ll continue to do our best!
