Trivia

  • His favorite Ultras are Tiga and Dyna.
  • Kensuke claimed to have passed his audition for Daichi Oozora thanks to playing with several dogs shortly before signing in for the audition.
  • He views Takuya Negishi as a senior despite the latter being younger, but doesn't view Hideo Ishiguro (who is more experienced than the two) much of a senior due to the latter starring in Ultraman X's sequel season.
  • While usually taking photos with his series' eponymous character, while at the Ultra Heroes THE LIVE: Acrobattle Chronicle 2016 stage show event, Kensuke took photos with Orb instead, saying that X was feeling shy that day.[3]
  • Although Daichi is a character who excels in scientific field, Kensuke admitted that he doesn't portray much of a scientist's traits to his character.
