Ban Daisuke Goes to Los Angeles

Jul 14th 2010
(Los Angeles) Anime Jungle, purveyors of everything anime in Japantown is proud to present an autograph session with Mr. Ban Daisuke, star of “Kikaida” “Kikaider-01” and “Inazuman” in the mid-seventies at the upcoming Nisei Week Festival in Los Angeles. “Kikaida” took the Hawaiian Islands by storm over 35 years ago, and still going strong in Hawaii and the mainland due to the successful English-subtitled version of the DVD Box Sets.

“Jinzo Ningen Kikaida” based on an original story by manga artist and writer, Ishinomori Shotaro was produced as a tokusatsu (live action) by Toei Movie Company for television in the mid-seventies. A classic good-versus evil tale, the show pitted a guitar-playing, denim-clad young biker named Jiro, played by actor Ban Daisuke, against the evil DARK, a shadowy criminal organization bent on wreaking havoc upon Japan and the world.
