Comments from Shimba Tsuchiya
Hello everyone, I am Shinba Tsuchiya and I will play the human form Ribut.
I admired superheroes a lot when I was a kid. When I was a ninth grader, I started attending the action studio created by Hideyoshi Iwata, who has been playing the main Ultra Heroes in recent years. At the time I entered university, my tutor Iwata told me “you have to find your own path for the rest of your life”. My answer to that is to become a voice actor, and that was 7 years ago. Today I was finally able to play a role in the Ultraman series. I hope I could connect the light shined from Ultraman Trigger and the light that I received from the heroes I looked up to as a child.
