Why I Prefer Doing Recent Super Sentai And Kamen Rider Cast Updates In This Blog
It's no secret that I prefer giving recent Super Sentai and Kamen Rider cast updates in this blog. It may sound confusing but it doesn't have to be. I could talk about the big difference between writing weekly Kyuranger episode reviews and writing about the Kyuranger cast.
Let's take for example the events done by the celebrities. Who's dancing on stage here? The fictitious characters or the ones playing the fictitious characters? People are aware that these characters aren't real and they're seeing the actors instead. It's like you're aware these characters aren't real yet you want to see the actors who portrayed them. So any events related to the cast are immediately written here because Takumi Kizu is not Lucky and Hiroki Iijima is not Emu Hojo. They're them the real characters and not the imaginary made-up characters.
This event where Hiroki Iijima and Atsuhiko Inukai struck a pose together with some of the Kamen Rider Girls isn't an event in both shows. It's not even the Kamen Rider EX-AID and Kamen Rider Build crossover. It's an event that happens in real life. No one should think of Inukai as the hero he plays. The event where the baton is passed from one Kamen Rider to another is about the actors and not about the show. Inukai himself isn't stuck in a Japan that's divided into three regions and Iijima is not a doctor in real life. They are simply pretending to be Kamen Riders.
Pretty much, I hope that clarifies matters on why most Super Sentai and Kamen Rider cast updates happen here. =P
