Here’s a double stuffed pack of Gavan for your viewing pleasure! And what a great set of episodes it is.
In Ep 29 the great Hikita Tenko the Second guest stars as… herself! Hikita Tenko aka Princess Tenko is the stage name of Mariko Itakura, a famous Japanese magician and illusionist. She inherited the title of Hikita Tenko from the first Tenko who unfortunately died of heart disease at the age of 45. In 1994 she debuted at the Radio City Music Hall and achieved worldwide fame. She was so famous that she even had an animated show on US television in 1995 titled Tenko and the Guardian of the Magic. The magical girl-esque show was produced by Saban and ran for 13 episodes. Tenko herself would make an appearance at the end of the episodes to show off a magic trick. Tenko would also go on to appear in another Metal Hero series in episode 24 of Metalder.
If you want to see some of her tricks check this out. It’s pretty crazy.
Ep 31: What’s better than Hikita Tenko? How about Hiroshi Miyauchi? Every other guest star is only second best. Enough said.
