The lead actor of a superhero series in 80'S was appointed to be the 35th Soke of Togakure ryu by Hatsumi sensei.
The actor Tsutsui anounced on his blog.
The superhero series was called Sekai Ninja Sen Jiraiya, aired in 88~89. I'm sure it's well known among Ninjers since Hatsumi himself was one of the casts.
Hatsumi chose the most approppreate man for the fantasy ryuha.
