Japanese Man Taking on Super Nice Guy Role

Posted: Updated:

With great power comes great responsibility. At least that is what one 27-year-old Japanese man thinks.


Tadahiro Kanemasu dons a superhero costume to wait by the stairs of subway stations, lending his strength to the elderly, mothers with strollers, and people lugging heavy packages.

Kanemasu admitted that he got off to a bit of a rocky start, as people were suspicious, but have warmed up to him after months of helping. Since his time is limited due to his regular job at a grocery store, he hopes to form a 'power ranger' unit to help the community out.

Rumors are rife that candidates for the pink and red power rangers have surfaced.
