Kusano Hitoyoshi (草野 仁義) is a newscaster in Oedo TV. His name was paid homage to Kusano Hitoshi
He has a habit on calling Prince Hata a stupid prince that berated him. In Episode 29-B, Kusano interviewed Prince Hata over the giant cockcroaches infested in all of Oedo, particularly Kabuki-cho. Once Baka... Hata explained the infestation, he gave the stupid prince a camel clutch, or other submission moves.
