The end of an era has arrived for Super Sentai.
Long-time suit actor Hideaki Kusaka has announced that this weekends’ finale of Kaitou Sentai LupinRanger VS Keisatsu Sentai PatRanger will be his final performance in tokusatsu.
Kusaka has been a mainstay in Super Sentai since 1980’s Denshi Sentai Denziman and has been the performer inside virtually all major Super Sentai Mecha costumes- he is currently portraying both LupinKaiser & PatKaiser in LupinRanger VS PatRanger.
In addition, Kusaka has been the performer for several Super Sentai heroes- including DekaMaster from DekaRanger and Shou Ronpo in KyuRanger.
We here at TokuNation extend our best wishes to Hideaki Kusaka and hope he enjoys his retirement. Thank you for decades of entertainment!
