OK, this is something I've wanted to do for a while...

In my posts about Goseiger and the Writers of Super Sentai, I repeated inaccurate information about writer Michiko Yokote. For the longest time, the story was that Michiko Yokote was a pseudonym used by three people. It's been since revealed by anime director Shinji Takamatsu that that was merely an urban legend perpetuated by the internet, and that Yokote is a sole woman.

In my post about the Red Warriors of Super Sentai, I said that Zyuranger's Yuuta Mochizuki was the first JAC member to play a Red pre-transformation. It was actually Jetman's Kotaro Tanaka, which I HAVE said before, before being thrown off by people who didn't know any better.

Them's Fightin' Words regrets the errors.


  1. Yikes. That says a lot about the consistency of your writing when the internet thinks you're three different people.

    Tanaka really put those skills to use when he was modeling for that awful Toyota dinner roll thing at the motor show. Spin, fake convo with girl who isn't Kaori, twirl, throw jacket over shouldeOH SHIT WHY IS THAT CAMERA FOCUSED ON ME????

    1. The story goes that Yokote got such a laugh out of the rumor that she perpetuated it. I think either way, yeah, it makes her look bad. Like...her shows aren't the strongest in plot, and she can only manage to handle a couple of characters. But she's going to perpetuate that she's three different people, one of which handles character, the other plot? Eh...whatever.

      Tanaka's career is a weird one. He started off JAC -- even though I don't know if he even did anything action-y other than Jetman -- and now he's resurfaced as a model, which I guess makes that car show make more sense. Still, you think Tanaka would have been spotted in at least a toku before Jetman, but Jetman's the only toku he's done. Kinda weird, when even Hiroyuki Sanada had to make some toku rounds.
