The new TV series, Ultraman Blazar, will start on July 8th 2023 JST! Every Friday at 5 PM JST, one of the main cast members starring alongside Captain Gento Hiruma, the protagonist played by Tomoya Warabino, will be announced.
The role of Bando Yasunobu, a skilled mechanic in the Special Kaiju Reaction Detachment, SKaRD, who also pilots the kaiju-type robot artillery, Earth Garon, will be played by the remarkable actor Hayate Kajihara. He aspired to become an actor after working as a suit actor while he was still in school. He has marked high scores on popular body competition shows and has won numerous awards in bodybuilding contests, surpassing the level of a mere hobby with his impressive physique. His excellent physical abilities has made him a popular actor in different fields spanning from theater, films to TV shows.
Yasunobu Bando (25 years old)
Yasunobu is a skilled mechanic who also took part in the development of Earth Garon. He is the pilot of Earth Garon and has a charming Kansai dialect. He was a pilot in the Global Guardian Force's transport corps before getting assigned to SKaRD. He keeps weapons and machinery well-maintained and secretly likes naming his favorite machines. His nickname for Earth Garon is "Earthy.” Sometimes he might be too upfront and can make people feel uncomfortable, but he is a friendly and lovable character. His hobby is playing cat's cradle.
Cast: Hayate Kajihara
My name is Hayate Kajihara andI will be playing the role of Yasunobu Bando, a member of the Special Kaiju Reaction Detachment, SKaRD.
I am very happy to be cast in the Ultraman series, a show with rich history and something I watched growing up. One of my dreams as an actor has come true.
I will do my best to serve you all as a pilot who knows more about machinery than anyone else and absolutely adores Earth Garon!
I want to make sure to portray Yasunobu Bando as I would and I promise to pour everything I have into Ultraman Blazar to make it the best possible show.
Thank you for your support.
