Satou Takeru, born March 21, 1989 in Iwatsuki, Saitama Prefecture, Japan, is a Japanese actor.
Takeru graduated from North High School in Koshigaya, Saitama prefecture on March 2007, weeks before his 18th birthday. On his blog, he has talked about the stress and loneliness he sometimes felt in being the star of a television show. His hobbies include playing with his cats, break dancing and Rubik's Cube.
Satou's first drama was Princess Princess D (TV Asahi) where he appeared as Kouno Tooru. In 2007 he appeared in Shinigami no Ballad as a guest (Ishihara Kentaro) and gained popularity in the 17th installment of the Kamen Rider series as Nogami Ryotaro. Satou claims that Den-O became popular because of its comedic timing.
He celebrated his 20th birthday with a festival in Odaiba, called "Takeru Festival 2009". Fans gathered and watched montages of Satou's previous and current works and even the commercial for Lotte's Fits mint. It also included a live chat between Satou and an MC and ended with Satou singing.
