Fumika Shimizu/Yuuki Joujima from Fourze is now a Cultist

Post by TypicalStandUser » Sat Feb 11, 2017 6:33 pm

Moments ago, I read a report that Fumika Shimizu of Kamen Rider Fourze/Hentai Kamen has retired from acting to devote her entire life to the controversial Japanese cult, Happy Science.

This reminds me of how John Travolta and Tom Cruise joined Scientology and took turns for the worse, despite that Cruise himself may be successful today due to some of his recent movies. I find this decision to devote oneself to an insaner religion to be a very, very stupid idea.

I'm gonna replay the False Profits main mission from Watch Dogs 2 to calm myself. To Fourze fans, maybe even Hentai Kamen fans, I'm so sorry.
Don't be surprised if P-Bandai announced Demon King Zi-O's Ziku Driver as a exclusive.

Eh? But she's starring in Tokyo Ghoul in the upcoming year? They haven't noted it on the Japanese wiki yet. I wonder what will come of this.

What happened Toei? You had the perfect set up for the Super Hero Space Mash Up and it's missing the space Riders!

Honestly though, she'll probably be fine. My own sister sorta joined a cult when she was around the same age. Although hers was a political cult. It's easy to make mistakes and get taken in by promises that aren't realistic when you're young and inexperienced.

I like how it's called Happy Science.

Here's some more additional information about her battle against her talent agency for trying to break her contract early:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/20 ... on/.112162

If she has been following Happy Science since she was a child, I think she will follow through. I would even say that acting was probably forced on her by her parents to get away from Happy Science.

The most intersting thing I got from reading that was how little she claimed to be paid for doing Fourze. That's some early Saban Power Rangers shit right there.

She was 16 at age of shooting so she doesn't quite qualify as a child actor, but there's still a provision saying under 18 can't be made to work between 10 PM and 5 AM. Her talent agency/Toei is in violation of labor laws then, she should sue.

I also think the cult name is a little ironic. Anyone who has a career in science knows how not happy it is most of the time.

Very interesting on why she quit. I hope all the actors who participated in KR are aware of this.

Yoshizawa as Meteor should return at the very least!!

Fukushi's in Bleach. If that film adaptation bombs (I'm not holding my breath, it may as well), he may return as Gentarou again in the future. Takahashi/Kengo quit acting due to illness and Zod knows what happened to the other members of the Club.
Honestly though, she'll probably be fine.
I hope so too.

Does Japan not have a minimum wage. Because for how much she was working that tiny amount of money seems illegally small.
Seen:
Sentai: Zyuranger-Gingaman, Abaranger onwards.
Kamen Rider: All the Heisei series.
Precure: DokiDoki-Go Pri and the first few episodes of Mahoutsukai and Futari.

Currently watching: Kyukyu Sentai GoGoV.

Guys, she's not quitting her acting career.

It turns out that she has ended her contract with LesPros.

In Happy Science, she named herself as Sengen Yoshiko and signed a contract with ARI Production.
