25-year-old Ryuji Sato (Sasuke Uchiha in Live Spectacle Naruto, Kashu Kiyomitsu in Touken Ranbu Musical) plays the mysterious salesman Fukuzou Moguro on the stage. He writes on his official Twitter, "This is the play that I want you to see and feel because it has become the Reiwa era now. I myself have no idea how Fukuzou Moguro will change to sneak into my body. I would appreciate your support." Then he adds the character's iconic line, "Kokoro no Sukima Oume Shimasu (I will fill the cracks in your heart)."
