Tatsunoko Pro’s latest adaptation of Shinzo Ningen Casshern, Casshern Sins, has Furuya Tohru playing the titular character. Furuya is not the original actor form the 70s despite his long history in anime, but luckily,he has experience playing the role of a man turned into a cyborg to fight an evil force: Koutetsu Jeeg.
The similarities don’t end there! Each show poses a vital question during its opening.
Casshern: “If Casshern won’t do it, who will?”
Jeeg: “If I stop (BAN BABAN) , then who will do it? (BAN BABAN)”
Clearly this role was made for the man.
Just like “fat guy in Paprika.”
