I thought he was excellent in his segment of April Fool's. I also read he's going to be Kaneki Ken in the live action version of Tokyo Ghoul, as he was the best part about the Death Note TV series I bet he'll be great.
Kubota really deserved his award for his marvellous performance as Yagami Light in Death Note. (Best Actor Award in the 86th Television Drama Academy Awards)
I can't imagine another actor giving justice to this kind of role.
This guy has a bright future ahead of him. <3
