He said he believed in all things UFO and ESP etc. I think he mentioned the story about how he got his mom to play ESP cards with him (he had to guess what was in a card) and she said no "I don't think you have any". Also (not sure) how he drew markings all over his rooftop to call the UFO's to come.
he believes in supernatural stuff when he was young, that's why he took the role of Yukawa-sensei.
He learnt those markings from the magazine Mu, which is a magazine about supernatural things and he used to be its subscriber. He said when his mother saw him drawing those markings, she stared at him coldly!
And he also mentioned when he was student, he begged his parents to buy him a machine (睡眠学習器/sleep study devices/sleep learning modules) which can help people study while they are sleeping. It was actually a pillow with cassette recorder inside such that you can keep listening to the lecture while you are sleeping! He said that up to now, he still hasn't met any guys who had bought this machine, so he asked the tv audience to fax to the program if they did (asaichi is a live program though masha's interview part is pre-recorded). Then at the end of the program, the announcer said that they have received faxes from 17 auidence saying that they had bought this machine!
(an article that I extracted from a local newspaper which directly translated an interview that Masha appearing in a Nippon TV show yesterday named《朝一/Asaichi》)

Now everyday he is counting the days before Ryoamden’s filming reaching the end. He treasures and cherishes everyday filming chance. He also shared a lot about his private life.

He lists out his selection criteria to be his wife. He said that she must “love cooking and washing clothes”. It seems that he is a traditional man.
