Newscaster Tadayuki Matsuoka for the NHK Nagano television station appeared on TV on Wednesday morning cosplaying as the Tiger & Bunny character Barnaby Brooks Jr. Matsuoka was wearing a replica of Barnaby's jacket that Cospa and Premium Bandai both offer to purchase. Matsuoka was also wearing a replica of Barnaby's white belt, which Premium Bandai also offers.
NHK's profile on Matsuoka notes that his hobbies include computers, manga, anime, robots, and figures, and other Akihabara-style interests. His profile also notes that he began enjoying the Nintama Rantaro television anime series after he covered a story on voice actress Mayumi Tanaka (Nintama Rantaro's Kirimaru, One Piece's Luffy) last year. Matsuoka has been working for NHK Nagano since 2009.
