Can Kamen Rider actors really sing?

Post by slaiyfer93 » Fri Sep 11, 2009 10:26 pm

Ever since starting from Kamen Rider Blade to my knowledge, actors seem to coincidentally be able to sing for eg songs
From Blade - like Rebirth (from Garren's actor),Take it a try (from Chalice's actor),
From Kabuto - Lord of the speed (from Gatack's actor)
From Den-O - Action Zero (from Zeronos actor), Double Action (from Den-O's actor),
From Kiva - Supernova (from Kiva's actor), Fight for justice (from Ixa's actor) and the other songs from Kurenai Otoya's, Aso Megumi and Aso Yuri's actor and actresses.
From Decade - Ride the Wind (Decade's actor), Treasure Sniper (Diend's actor)

So from this long list. It shows that Kamen Rider actors can coincidentally sing while being able to act. Some of them may really be able to sing but do you think that most of them had their voice digitally enhanced to sound nicer?

Well a main character actor singing is nothing new. It's a long standing tradition from the Showa era too.

Short answer: I don't think they can sing

Long answer: I think that they're routinely drafted to sing in songs tailored to making their voices sound good decent. Also, you left out Blade, Hirose, and Mutsuki singing their character songs

Fanboy moment! jk

I am also saying no, because I don't think Masaru Inoue or that Treasure Sniper guy whose name I forgot can sing. I enjoy their songs though. Karaoke anyone? :)

Shinji, Kitaoka and Asakura had theirs too. (Basically those Riders from Ryuki that stayed around for more than 20 episodes :P)

I don't remember Shinji having a song actually. Which one was that?

Actually, it goes back to the original series, with Hiroshi Fujioka singing the OP for the first 13 episodes.

Masaru was in one of the Prince of Tennis Musicals, remember that!

I think Koji Seto (kiva) sings pretty well. Actually, I like Koji more as a singer than as an actor.
Yuichi Nakamura (zeronos) is also decent, and if I remember right Hidenori Tokuyama (kick hopper) has some sort of talent, even though he doesn't have a song on Kabuto. Oh, almost forgot! Kazuki Kato (Drake) is somewhat good too, he doesn't have a song in Kabuto either though. Tokuyama and Kazuki have released music not related to tokusatsu shows, I guess that means at least someone agrees with me.

The others of those I know, however, are not that great.

For Tokuyama, just check out the many Go-Onger episodes where he sings
