Back in 2011, there may be only few people that ever heard the name of “Yoshizawa Ryo”. Who’s this guy? When he got chance to play in Kamen Rider Fourze for the first time, I couldn’t help but underestimating *sorry Ryo, but I gotta be honest*. But, now he’s widely known. It’s his role as Sakuta Ryusei that caught me & surely many other fans.
He has the look, the voice and the enthusiasm to be good actor. Many would wonder if he can only play the cool guy, and I’d happily answer, “NO”. I’ve checked his dorama, Kingyo Club and few stages he played in. He had tried funky, silly roles before taking smirking prince’s Sakuta role. lol.
He was born on February 1rst 1994. He has 2 brothers and claimed to be the most handsome among them *lol* (source: Ousama no Brunch Sept 1 2012). His speciality includes Kendo *kyaaa* and Juggling *because he saw it in circus. so cute, oryo!*
It seems to me he has great acting potency. I know Kamen Rider Fourze would be his stepping stone into bigger screens. I’ll be watching you, Ryo!

Q1. “Mystic Topaz” is also known as “Rainbow Topaz” as an alias. Please tell us your favourite colour of the 7 colours of the rainbow and why.”
A1. Blue. It seems to feel most relieving.
O2. Please tell us your “7 tools” of OO.
A2. 7 essential tools → Scripts, writing material, training wear, training shoes, headband, towel, snacks
Q3. The production is a stage show lined with antique shops. For one, a value in their situation being something not understood… Is there such?
A3. A sofa in my room from when I was small. Although it is tattered with holes, it is full of memories.
Q4. Please tell us if you have ever experienced “Mystic (Mysterious. Incomprehensible)” episodes so far.
A4. When water dripped down from the ceiling when I was in the room, there weren’t any signs of the ceiling getting wet at all when I looked. The ceiling leak was impossible because it was the 2nd floor of my 7-storey mansion… What was it though, I wonder.
Q5. Forsaken by chance… Your thoughts of the recent events are?
A5. Although I always put collapsible umbrellas on my back,, rain fell on the day I forgot it by chance.
Q6. “Mystic Topaz” is, by how the light is applied, it is a jewel charm that gives-off various sparkles. Please shed light on a side of Yanagisawa-kun that isn’t known!
A6. I was surprised at how unexpectedly super-duper precise Yanagisawa-kun is.
Q7. Leave some enthusiasm towards the stage!
I think I grew one and a half years later from “BLACK PEARL”
I will try my best so that everyone will have something even more interesting to watch than “BLACK PEARL”.
- Pinnochio (2011) as as Urashima Taro
–Although this is the first project with your participation, what were your thoughts upon watching last time’s “Black&White”?
In a very cool stage, bold too, I felt “I was also exempted!” So this time, I’m really pleased. By pulling everyone’s legs [i.e. Messing around with them], I feel that I’ll do my best.
–What’s it like being an late-comer?
Although I was accepted after the first audition, I was surprised to be accepted after the first audition. “Introduce yourself by singing and dancing” is what was remarked, in a rap-tone, so I said in that sort of way “I’m Yoshizawa Ryo, yay!”. I tried my best (lol).
–The role you play, which is that?
Urashima Taro. “In PINOCCHIO, why am I that?” is what I said about my chara’~! In my image, I think Urashima Taro is the type who obediently accepts anything. I am in such a comparative position too. “You arrival [i.e. newcomer], watch out for scams!” etc, it’s well-said. So somewhat to me, there may be Urashima traits in me~
–Is there anything to worry about during the act?
Although there is much, it’s mostly the juggling [that I’m worried about]. It’s difficult~ Since I use my head much while practicing it, I get a headache while doing it. I say “Aaaah! Every time I drop it”, it’s frustrating (lol). I want to practice well until the public performance, I want to show something good~
–What is the “Pinocchio” team atmosphere like?
It’s lively, and I’m doing things while everyone is doing things, so it’s really fun. There are younger ones too~ I, since I was the younger one all the time until now, think that the younger ones here are “Cuuute”, and at the same time, I feel “I’m a senior, I must be steady”~
–In which way do you want this stage show to be watched?
Although there is dialogue too, it’s really “A mysterious world where wonders aren’t mysterious”. Although it’s an impossible world if one was to normally live there, it becomes more natural the more you look at it. A world such as that, I want to enjoy it a lot~
