Prior to his casting, Kousuke Kujirai, who had played the role before him with the second Seigaku cast, had filled in as Kaidoh with the third cast due to actor Takahiro Tasaki's withdrawal from the show.

Tomo graduated from his role as Kaidoh after the last performance of the Dream Live 5th live concert.
