Takeru Sato as Ryotaro Nogami in Kamen Rider Den-O

Well here's a tribute to That Chick in one way or another.  So she's written a good article on Den-O which I couldn't so I'd give her credit for that.  But I'd like to express it that her writing had helped me appreciate Takeru Sato's efforts.  Now for a tribute to Takeru Sato as Den-O which I thought I'd never write.  Don't like the series that much but I gotta admit, it's best to give credit to the protagonist for a job well done.

The character of Ryotaro is the unlucky yet lucky protagonist.  Just a thought that even if I do get headaches when watching Den-O due to timeline issues, however the actor can portray the protagonist quite well.  It's not corny humor, he can really act though at this point of time, he was still struggling but worth crediting.  Now here's where his talent is tested...

In Kamen Rider Den-O, his character Ryotaro gets possessed by the Taros.  Momotaros is badass, Urataros is silver tongued, Kintaros is noble and Ryutaros the dancing dragon.  It is pretty complex to play four different characters whenever any of the Taros possesses him.  So maybe the acting isn't perfect but I'll really give credit to his role due to the fact it sharpened him as an actor.  I mean it's as if Takeru Sato is five characters in one show if you ask me.

Hmmm anybody who deserves some credit?  I might do one for Tetsuo Kurata and another for Hiroshi Miyauchi who has played several Toku characters namely Aoranger, V3, Kikaider, Big One and Miura.  For the meantime, I felt like this tribute was too short but feel free to comment on how great you think he is in Kamen Rider Den-O.
