- Creative Differences: Dragon Gate going Lighter and Softer after breaking away from Toryumon might have had something to do with TARU's departure. While he was not as openly caustic about it as SUWA was, his next projects in AJPW were so different in tone from what DG was doing that one cannot help but think TARU would have had serious differences with DG's management.
- Promoted Fanboy: Was a fan of Hiroyoshi Tenzan, and his visual style sometimes reflects it. He got to team up with him in a Ring Soul event.
