Hiroshi Tsuburaya ( 1964-2001 ) "MGA HULING ALA2X NI SHAIDER"



Hiroshi Tsuburaya ( 1964-2001 )




Kilala n'yo ba si Shaider, ang pulis pangkalawakan?

Noong maliit pa ako, dahil wala kaming sariling TV ay nakikipangapit-bahay ako para lamang mapanood ang pakikipaglaban ni Shaider sa mga tauhan ni Phuma Lear, at para na rin masilip ang panty ni Annie. Para sa akin, ang galing-galing ni Shaider (o Alexis kapag hindi pa nagta-transform) at ang ganda-ganda ni Annie.



Tinuruan din ako ng ilang mahahalagang bagay nina Shaider at Annie, gaya ng mahigpit na pagkapit sa katuwiran at ang pagtataguyod ng kalayaan. Buong giting nilang ipinagtanggol ang daigdig mula sa mga dayuhang (as in aliens from outer space) mananakop.


Kamakaila'y nalungkot ako sa natanggap kong nagbabalitang patay na raw si Shaider. nalaman kong noong Hulyo 24, 2001 pa pala pumanaw sa edad na 37 dahil sa kanser sa atay si Hiroshi Tsuburaya, ang artistang Hapon na gumanap na Shaider.


Sabagay, hindi mismong si Shaider o Alexis ang namatay--pagkat ang karakter ay maaaring gampanan ng iba--pero nakalulungkot pa ring isipin na yung "idol" mo dati ay tepok na pala.

Hiroshi Tsuburaya, 1964-2001


By: Bob Johnson & August Ragone, Henshin! Online

Dateline: Friday, July 27, 2001

Hiroshi Tsuburaya, grandson of Eiji Tsuburaya and the Space Sheriff who saved the world in the 1980s, passed away at the age of 37 at 9:27am Tokyo time, on July 24, 2001 from liver disease. He is survived by his wife of eleven years, Fumiko and three children. The wake was held on July 25 and the funeral on July 26, both at the Siejo Catholic Church in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo.

The funeral was well attended by family and friends. Brothers Masahiro Tsuburaya (a producer at TPC) and Hideaki Tsuburaya (who runs Tsuburaya Communications) were there, along with many production staff members from Tsuburaya Productions. Actors in attendance included Takeshi Yoshioka, who played Gamu Takayama in ULTRAMAN GAIA and long-time suit actor Haruo Nakajima.

Hiroshi began his acting career by auditioning for a motion picture in the early 1980s. After not getting the role, he felt very worried about his acting career, but was saved by someone connected with the film, who gave him a small part in another movie. Following that, he landed his most famous role as the lead actor in Toei Companys SPACE SHERIFF SHAIDER (1984).

Following the leads of Kenji Ohba and Hiroshi Watari, Hiroshi Tsuburaya starred in the third of Toeis popular Space Sheriff series as Shaiders alter ego, Dai Sawamura. The series was action packed and as the main character, Hiroshi was involved in many stunt and action sequences, as well as his fair share of martial arts battles with monsters, aliens and henchmen who were trying to take over the World.

After the 52-episode run of SPACE SHERIFF SHAIDER, he went on to appear in numerous television dramas and movies, including ARARENBO SHOGUN and MITO KOMON.

In 1996, he appeared in episode 49 of ULTRAMAN TIGA. The episode involved the hero, Daigo, traveling back in time to Tsuburaya Productions in the mid-1960s, when the original ULTRAMAN series was first being developed. In this, he played the role of his father, Hajime Tsuburaya. Hajime was a director on the original ULTRAMAN and went on to take over Tsuburaya Productions after the death of his father, Eiji.

The following year, he accepted a regular role in ULTRAMAN DYNA as Colonel Seiji Miyata, the commander of TPC (The Terrestrial Peaceable Consortium). He would return for his final acting part as KCB Director, Kenji Tabata in ULTRAMAN GAIA.

Hiroshi was told a few years ago by doctors that he only had about five years to live. He was determined to outlive his father, Hajime, who died at the age of 41. At that time, he was instructed to take it easy. Wishing to help young actors get into the business, he temporarily quit his acting career and became manager of Tsuburaya Productions talent division. This was the position he held until his passing.

The last known interview with Hiroshi was in The Space Sheriffs Compendium, a book written by Mikio Ando and released in July of 2000.

All his fans will miss Hiroshi and his passing at such a young age is very tragic. Our hearts go out to his family and friends.
