Kato Keisuke to play Godzilla in play: From fighting Fangires to burning down Tokyo…

Kato Keisuke (who played Nago Keisuke/Kamen Rider IXA in Kamen Rider Kiva) and Idoling!!!‘s Erika Tonooka have been chosen as co-stars for “Godzilla”, not a movie iteration, but an award-winning play written in 1988 by playwright Yasuhiko Ohashi. The play will be part of Box Corporation’s 30th Anniversary celebration.

Kato will play the iconic monster alongside Tonooka, who will play as a young girl that falls in love with Godzilla [insert “Bad Romance” joke here]. It seem though that Kato will be acting out of costume, so there wll be some level of plausibility, I guess.

Supporting cast includes Natsuhi Ueno, Yuna Ito, Serina Nagano, Kana Ito, Ai Kuriki, Junki Tozuka, Shohei Nanba, Ryo Sakaguchi, and Deleanu Satoshi.

“Onnanoko Monogatari” director Morioka Toshiyuki will be in charge of directing. Performances will be held at Shinjuku’s Theater Moliere from September 30th to October 2nd.

Kamen Rider OOO Ep.47 Summary and Preview

We’re just two episodes away from the end of the series, and yet this series has still given us one twist after another. And given everything that’s happened up to this point, there are some major looming questions about how they’ll end the series. But for now, here is the summary for ep.47, taken from the official website and translated by KamenRiderUNDERGROUND of HJU:

Episode summary for Ep 47 on TV Asahi site:

Because Maki threw a couple of Cores into Eiji, Eiji finally becomes a Greeed and cannot stop himself going berserk. Eiji Greeed and Ankh start to fight, soon after he turns from Greeed form to OOO PuToTyra Combo. Ankh tries to defeat OOO in order to obtain ‘life’. But because of what Eiji said earlier, Ankh’s head…

Satonaka brings Eiji to Kougami Foundation, Kougami gives Eiji some advice again.

On the other hand, Hina tells Chiyoko about the relationship between Eiji, Ankh and Shingo. Chiyoko accepts the facts and encourages Hina. And because of that Hina decides to…?

And here’s a very interesting point that he brings up:

Kougami said in the preview that Eiji has obatin power which the King 800 years ago didn’t. Satonaka also mentioned this ep that she has a present for Eiji, I wonder what that is?

Yeah, so what is in the little wrapped box she was suppose to give to Eiji? Was it something meant to help Eiji reverse the Greeedification process? Is it another set of Core Medals yet to be released? Is it an existing set that has yet to be used in the series itself (like, say, BuraKaWani cores)? Or is it some random git that won’t have any real effect on anything that’s happened so far? (Let’s face it, that could happen, given the very random nature of the series).

I guess we’ll just have to keep watching to find out. You win again, Toei!

Anyway, here’s the preview for Ep.47:
