Veteran actor Kai-kun retires from Softbank Otousan role

Son Kaito-kun to assume the throne

For seven years, we've been accustomed to Kai-kun playing the fatherly figure in Softbank's series of ads. Now it's official: Kai-kun is retiring from acting at an elderly 11 years old and handing over the role to his son, Kaito-kun.

Most acting dogs retire by the age of 8, but Kai-kun held onto his role with an iron paw. After all, he's the only one we could trust to save us from a meteor and keep his entire family in line. Perhaps he'll pick up photography once again: he already has books of self-portraits in Japan.

Take a look back through our dedicated Otousan tag to relive some of Kai-kun's best performances.
