(Just saw this information on tenipuri_myu
but don't know any real way to verify it
Although I do hope
the information is accurate.)
Wow. It appears that Daisuke Watanabe
(George Ikaruga in Ultraman Mebius
) is going to be in the Prince of Tennis Musical
!!!! Apparently he will have the same role Yuu Shirota
used to have...not that I really know much about Tenimyu.
Anyway, it is kind of weird. I always thought they looked somewhat similar in appearances (probably had to do with the whole Spanish thing; either that or I need my eyesights checked ^_^'), but I never dreamed that there would be any tangible connection. (Side Note: Back when I was watching both Ultraman Mebius
and Kamen Rider Kabuto
weekly, I did try to connect Watanabe with Kazuki Kato, a former Tenimyu actor who played Daisuke Kazama in Kabuto
: Daisuke (Watanabe) -> Daisuke (Kazama) = Kazuki Kato. (What can I say? I never admit to being quite normal...))
I guess this means I have more incentive to watch the musical (keep putting it off mostly due to lack of subtitles, but I may try watching raws).
(Apparently you can send Watanabe a fan mail
, but will he see it???)
EDIT: Yes! This news is confirmed now.
