kamen rider w Hikaru Yamamoto weird scandal on japan news

Igadevil

Mr. Kamen Rider
Not surprised by the Shiratori thing since she's a *erhm* "model", I'm pretty sure the imajin took Takeru out:laugh:

You gotta explain the Masahiro thing.

It's on the last page, just one of those "Where will the Rider Curse strike next!? Watch out new guy! OooooooEEEEEEEEEEEEoooooooooooo!" sort of things. I guess they made it before Double, but given how tenuous the comic's grasp on reality is (the definitive representation of the Heiseri era is apparently Tiger using a bootleg Odin Deck to transform) one can only wonder. It's cracktastic fun, but I wouldn't take it too seriously- the most sane revelations are stuff that's already been widely known.

I'm just amazed it doesn't include the old accusation that Sugata had yakuza ties, which used to be the popular reason why there was no ZX series.

I take it that comic you've mentioned is the reason the various boards have been bringing it up. But even prior to this comic, I remember people speculating about a Superman-type of curse applying to Kamen Rider.

I remember someone spreading awful rumors about Sugata, but I sort of began to disregard them when, a few years ago, he was rewarded by Japanese police for helping stop a mugging or something like that. Would they really do that if he was some gangster thug? Maybe it's too naive to think they wouldn't, I don't know...

Well it was a nice two years(Kiva and Decade) we had where there was no scandal or ailment that involved a female lead in a Kamen Rider show.

Kabuto- Hiyori's actress had a health problem

Den-O- Hana's actress left due to fatigue and other issues

Yeah, the comic just came out very recently (in the "Tokusatsu Secret File" underground mag) so I guess it's become topical again.

The way I always heard it was that Toei didn't want corruption in the company (cue audience laughter) and wanted to wash their hands of the whole thing... which totally doesn't match with the fact that he's been interviewed numerous times since, and that he worked for them later. So yeah, I think it's pretty much garbage.

I've never been clear as to if the rumor was actually told in Japan, as I only remember it from the English-speaking circles in the 90's. I assumed someone translated wrong and though Sugata playing a yakuza in a movie = Sugata is a yakuza in real life.

The fucked up thing is there probably WILL be some sort of repercussions for her doing this (either a change of actress or being written out), while when Vanessa Hudgens had her nudes leak onto the net and Miley Cyrus' underwear pics did the same, they both had absolutely nothing happen to them other than more fame and a lame Dane Cook joke.

I personally doubt this happening cause Toei demands it. They freaking hired Nao Oikawa for Go-Onger, and umm you can find even worse stuff for her with even greater ease.

You know, I have never Googled her until you posted that. I'll never look at Kagareshia the same again (which is probably for the best). O_O

Like the Superman Curse or SNL Curse, some Japanese fans think there's a Kamen Rider Curse.

Like...

Hiroshi Fujioka's motorcycle accident during the series; Takeshi Sasaki's being seriously burned in a housefire; Akira Yamaguchi, Kyoko Okada, and Miyuki Kanbe dying at young ages; Tooru Okazaki's motorcycle accident in which he had a lengthy hospitalization; Shigeru Araki losing his political run; Yui Satonaka having to leave due to her health problems; Yuriko Shiratori's mysterious dropping out of Den-O.

There's also less severe things people have brought up, like Ryou Hayami's being typecast, Tetsuo Kurata losing a main role in a major show, Yuusuke Tomoi's short marriage, Takayuki Tsubaki's scandal, Shigeki Hosokawa's bad blood with the new producers.

How did you find out about all these informations???? and...if you don't mind but can you tell which actress/actor is who?? Would really help, thanks a lot!!

I put this in hide tags because I just copied and pasted my earlier post, putting their Rider roles in bold...

[HIDE]Hiroshi Fujioka's (Rider 1) motorcycle accident during the series; Takeshi Sasaki's (Rider 2) being seriously burned in a housefire; Akira Yamaguchi (Riderman), Kyoko Okada (Tackle), and Miyuki Kanbe (one of the Tachibana girls from Hibiki...forget her name) dying at young ages; Tooru Okazaki's (Amazon) motorcycle accident in which he had a lengthy hospitalization; Shigeru Araki (Stronger) losing his political run; Yui Satonaka (Kabuto's Hiyori) having to leave due to her health problems; Yuriko Shiratori's (Den-O's Hana) mysterious dropping out of Den-O.

There's also less severe things people have brought up, like Ryou Hayami's (Kamen Rider X) being typecast, Tetsuo Kurata (Black/RX) losing a main role in a major show, Yuusuke Tomoi's (Kamen Rider Gills) short marriage, Takayuki Tsubaki's (Kenzaki/Blade) scandal, Shigeki Hosokawa's (Hibiki) bad blood with the new producers.[/HIDE]

That could be. I notice that certain actors, like Sugata or Changeman's Shouhei Yamamoto, play in so many gangster flicks that they're often just referred to as "yakuza villains," so maybe there was a misunderstanding on the part of someone looking up Sugata.

I liked him when he wasn't a god
Kazuki Katou (Kamen Rider Drake) is in a movie that's now had its release date put back indefinitely because of a scandal involving another of the actors, so there's one more for the Kamen Rider curse. Apparently it was his first lead, too ... :disappoin

Her(or a human version of Kegelshia) got hit in the face with a pie for the last episode of Go-Onger.

i know i might sound stupid but Tsubaki's scandal?
He was in porn/did a sex scene/something nude before Blade and it came up during Blade's run.

Ooh that's a shame, was it that monster one with the chick who played Femme? I always thought it was so incredibly silly to put movies on hold because of scandals involving actors.

You're not talking about the awesome Wangan Midnight are you? Damn. I know Yuuichi Nakamura is the main character there, but I think Kazuki is the second one.
