Chibatman has always been something of a secretive figure, and not too many people know much about the man himself. He may be a superhero, but he’s also a regular guy too, you know. Here’s where Chibatman kicks back after a hard day of keeping the peace!
This is the inside of Chibatman’s room, where he's got a lot of cool toys! We were surprised to find that a man with such a deep, growling voice has such a large collection of Star Wars and anime figurines.
Chibatman actually built the Chibatpod himself using the welding skills he learned at work. It cost him roughly ¥600,000 (about US$5,000) to build, and requires the rider to lie forward over the framework, which provides a great workout to the core muscles.
Here’s the video of RocketNew24's interview with Chibatman! Be sure to stay tuned until the end, because Chibatman has a special message for all RocketNews24 readers!
While the “Chibatman” moniker is something that was created by the media, Chibatman sees himself as the real deal: “When I ride around town, I do so not as Chibatman, but as Batman himself.”
Before we left, we asked one last thing of Chibatman: that he remove his mask and show his face. And, would you believe it, he did!
We learned a lot about Chibatman from our visit to his home: not only does he have an impressive physical presence, he’s also a total gentleman with a lot of heart. The local people also seem to have a lot of love and support for him. To us, he’s a definite superhero!
