You can enjoy "Kamen Rider Kuuga" at "Toei Tokusatsu Channel" on YoutTube for free. The picture quality is outstanding since it was shoot in high vision. Honestly to say, this article is focusing on Joe Odagiri who played Yusuke Godai.   


This is the first high-vision shooting in the long-lasting Kamen Rider series. I've just started to watch the program because the hero was played by Joe Odagiri and then found it unusual, challenging TV drama.

"Kamen Rider Kuuga" was a unique hero drama, which run in 2000 for the first time after a 10 year suspension of the Kamen Rider series.

  • シリーズ初のハイビジョン撮影 The series-first high-vision shooting 
  • 容赦ない殺人  Brute murders
  • 問いかける闘いの意味   Quetion on the meaning of fighting
  • ヒーローの在り方や子供番組の認識を根底から覆し  Overturned the basis of traditional heroes and children shows
  • 日本のドラマ史にその名を刻んだ  Assumed its place in the history of Japanese dramas

10年ぶりって、クウガの前ってなんだったの?  Who was the last predecessor of Kuuga?

って、ふとおもって、年表で観たら1988年(昭和63年)の『仮面ライダーBLACK RX 』でした。『BLACK RX 』って名前からして、なんか出尽くした感が無いでもない気がします。『BLACK』の続編が『RX』なんですね…。いまだったら…やっぱ『仮面ライダーDX』で、「デジタルトランスフォーメーションで変身だ!」(特別出演:河野太郎大臣)。
According to the  "Timeline of Kamen Riders," it was "Kamen Rider BLACK RX" released in 1988. "RX" sounds the very end. "BLACK RX" was the following story of "BLACK." If it were today, it must be "Kamen Rider DX" who transforms with digital transformation, supported by Ministor Taro Kono. 

Since Emperor Hirohito (The Showa Emperor) passed away in 1984, RX was the last rider in the Showa Era.

Wow! He looks full of energy in maker-uniform-like jacket that is very Showa-style. Actually he is not a manufacturer employee but a junior at university.

In comparison to ones in Showa, Heisei riders are slim, "hoso-macho (slim but muscular)." In particular, Joe Odagiri is most skinny of all. No wonder, since he is an cool actor for "時効警察" and "大川端探偵社"! 
Oh, I need to stop talk on Joe Odagiri but go back to "Kuuga"! 

オダギリジョーの演じる主人公  Hero played by Joe Odagiri

The hero played by Joe Odagiri is "gentle" in the Heisei style, breaking away from "dark past"- haunted traditional riders in the Showa era. 
For details, please refer to the following link.  


Come on, neither do I know details. I am a person who started to have a little interest in Kuuga only because it is played by Joe Odagiri. If your have any questions, contact "仮面製造" people, who are working for The Guardian Project.  

ただ、まあ dic.pixiv.net を読んだ感想としては…下記のセリフに「ゆとり世代」の伸びやかさを感じます。 

Well, according to the discription of pixiv, Yusuke Godai seems to be a free, easy boy in so-called the "Yutori Generation" in Japan. 


"I must do it because I am Kuuga!"


"The rain must stop and we can see a blue sky. Even now, there is a  blue sky goes on forever above the rainy cloud"


The ending song reflecting the personality of Yusuke Godai is as follow:

この歌詞、実にいい~! These area fascinating lyrics!

「青空になる」歌詞  Lyrics of  "I'll be the Blue Sky"

 作詞 藤林聖子   Written by Shoko Fujibayashi


Placing the heavy baggage beneath my  head as a pillow
Take deep breaths and I'll be the blue sky


目をあけても つぶっても
With your eyes opened or closed
the same clouds would go by but
you cannot find it if not watching now

I'll take you to the place 

to the future with no sadness

carrying your smiles in my pocket
I'll be the blue sky

I'll take you to the place 

to the future with no fighting


Leaving memory with you in the album

I'll be, I'll be the blue sky


This would make you cry.


This song relays a massage of hope by using easy words even kindergarten children can understand. However, it is never childish. I want to listen to a boy chorus version of this  like Libera. 


I'll take you to the place 
to the future with no sadness

これ、とくに今考えちゃうよ。香港の子供たちのこと思うとね…。(ほぼ2時間おきくらいに考えている。)This  part is so rich in meaning. I think of children in Hong Kong ... (I think about HK in every two hours) 

「青空になる」というイメージとしては、 石川啄木を思い出します。

The image "become the blue sky" reminds me famous waka poet Takuboku Ishikawa

 不来方(こずかた)のお城の草に寝転びて 空に吸はれし十五の心
Lying on the grass in the old castle in Kozukata (Aomori Prefecture)
My fifteen-year old spirit was absorbed by the sky  


Now, this is a surporise test on the person who wrote such fantastic lyrics.
