No jokes or clever titles this time. The original Ultraseven mask, which was used in the filming of the Ultraseven series, was stolen this week from the restaurant Joli Chapeau, which is located in Fujikawa, Kanagawa, and owned by Ultraseven star Moritsugu Kouji.
Moritsugu, who played Ultraseven and his alter-ego Dan Moroboshi, said, “The mask is the real thing, and it is my alter-ego. I want the mask returned immediately for the fans who visit my shop.”
Moritsugu last remebered seeing at the restaurant at closing time Sunday, June 24th. He returned on Monday, a day when the restaurant was closed, around noon, when he discover that the mask was missing from it’s shelf. The only thing remeinaing was it’s plastic container, which had been left on a nearby table. After making the discovery, Moritsugu immediately called the emergency phone line.
I don’t know what kind of low-life person would do such a thing, but I hope that they are caught soon! I’ll update you if any more news comes up about this.
