Cyril Takayama "sero"

Post by aKuMu » Wed 01.31.2007 6:23 pm

Anyone knows him? I just watched his new Magic Revolution from last week.
He really has some impressive skills. Most of his tricks are just amazing. (putting his hand trough an aquarium glass)
I haven't seen someone 'better' than him.

If you don't know him, search on youtube for Cyril Takayama or sero. There are almost all of his shows as separate parts.

I actaully got to see him live at a show in Nagoya. He's even better live: completely flamboyant and just keeps the tricks coming one after another.

I remember watching that glass thing, and I still have no idea how he pulled that off.

I watched some clips on Youtube and thought "Oh, so that's what an American accent sounds like!" :p

Although, It's my theory that he's faking it (or at least hamming it up).
Kinda like Bobby. ;)

Well, he is from America and only half Japanese. I know he uses scattered English words ("Watch!", "MY. PREDICTION.") to make it seem more... mystical? But I think he tries to speak Japanese to the best of his abilities.
