Mei-chan no Shitsuji Question

Post by Joicerojo » Mon Nov 04, 2013 1:48 pm

I've noticed that a lot of actors from the j-drama "mei-chan's butler" are starring in Kamen Rider:
- Mizushima Hiro (kabuto)
- Satoh Takeru (den-o)
- Kato Keisuke (Kiva - he was KR Ixa)
- Kimisawa Yuki (W)
- Kyo Nobuo (Kiva)

Although the last two played kaijin (Kimisawa Yuki was Nazca Dopant and Kyo Nobuo was Horse Fangire) they did have enough screen time to be noticed (Nazca dopant was Sonozaki Kirihiko and horse Fangire is the fangire from the first two episodes of Kiva)...

Does somebody know some trivia relating both shows?

There's also Sentai actors too. I'm just going to guess that the director was a toku fan.

Around that time toku was using a lot of actors from the D-Boys talent group so it could be that Mei-chan also just decided to use mostly D-Boys.

I'm not sure if they're still using mostly that group, it's been a while since I was up on my Japanese pretty boys.

I see a D2 member and a Pureboys member, but no D-Boys as far as I know.
