Budo Grape vocalist Quminco adds another star to her career with her recent acting role in the new NHK comedy series Tokusatsu Gagaga.

The multi-talented performer is also a professional fashion model and radio personality in her native Nagoya. Quminco appears in Tokusatsu Gagaga’s second episode in a scene with famed Japanese actress Yuki Matsushita, who plays the lead character’s mother.

Tokusatsu Gagaga, which began broadcasting on January 18 in Japan, follows Kano Nakamura, a seemingly ordinary office lady who is secretly a gigantic fan of tokusatsu TV series, and often imagines herself as a special effects hero in order to get through the difficulties of her daily life.
