Hobbies include reading, film appreciation, music, and singing.
Due to problems after KIKAIDER, Daisuke Ban had his stage name changed to "Naoya Ban" up until the mid-90s.
A month after Shoutarou Ishinomori (the creator of KIKAIDER, INAZUMAN, etc) passed away in 1998, there was a rumor (mostly on the Internet) that Daisuke Ban died of a heart attack while having sex with a prostitute. The rumor, of course, was untrue.
